- Research Your Prospects –
Knowing who you’re calling and having a good understanding of their business will help you tailor your pitch and make it more relevant. Researching your prospects also makes it easier to handle objections, as you’ll already have good insights into their business.
- Have a Great Script –
You don’t need to memorise your script word for word, but having one will help you stay on track and ensure that you cover all the important points. It’s also important to practice your script so you sound confident and professional when cold calling.
- Be Prepared to Handle Objections –
You’ll likely face some objections when cold calling, but having a good response ready will help you handle them more effectively. The aim is to turn every objection into an opportunity to further explain your offering, so be prepared to answer any questions that come your way.
