I've used this 5 step process to maintain the performance of top performers, and to give continuous and constant improvement to people new to cold calling and those struggling to hit targets.

The Cold Call Training Process

You start the process by making 10 calls and noting down the key points of each call, such as:

Where on the call you were stopped.

What stopped you closing the sale or fulfilling the aim of your call.

What worked and what didn't.

Once you've made the 10 calls you'll learn how to analyse what happened and define the key areas to target with training.

Telemarketing Tips on How to
Enjoy Cold Calling

Telemarkting tips on how to keep motivated and enjoy cold calling even if you hate it now.

Telesales Girl with Headache

Telesales and telemarketing can be a tough job.

Making outbound calls can really test your resilience.

You can face constant objections and rejections.

If you're self-employed you're under pressure to make sales or find potential customers.

Employed people can have managers pushing for better results.

No wonder many people get burn-out or stress.

How the Technique Works

If you need a sales training technique to keep your motivation levels high, and help you to enjoy cold calling, you'll like this technique.

It's based on turning your focus to getting a No from your prospects rather than just chasing Yes's all the time.

I know, it sounds crazy, but stay with me...

You can't get a sale or achieve your goal on every call. What you can do is get a defined No when you can't get a Yes. 

A defined No is where you know exactly why the prospect you phoned stopped your call, raised an objection, or said No to your proposal. 

And from that defined No you can learn and make changes to your call.

It's a similar technique to the 5 Step training and coaching process above but aimed a complete refocusing of how you frame your viewpoint of your calls.

See more about this technique that has changed cold callers viewpoints, and helped them to enjoy their role, at How to Enjoy Cold Calling...
