How Pre-Call Planning Invites Trust
On a sales call, if your prospects ask: "Do you know what we do and how we help our clients?" how you will respond influences future opportunities. When you know at least the basic answers before the call, you begin to establish respect, trust and credibility.
Never Cold Call Again!
Beware of calls to firms for which you or your firm have no similar experience. Business Wise helps you identify firms that ‘look like’ your best clients to increase your understanding of their needs, increasing your confidence and increasing prospects’ trust in you.
How to Respond to a Live Hello from your Prospect
Surprise! You just reached a live prospect, not voice mail! If you do NOT engage your prospect within the next 15-20 seconds, “fahget about it!”.
Promote referrals for the quickest sales first
Unsolicited referrals alone seldom take sales to the next level. To promote and increase referrals, give valuable referrals often. Then, create lists of targeted prospects that your best clients are likely to know. Show them the list and grow your referral base.

Before you network, first identify the companies you want as clients. Then spend your networking time to reach these specific prospects.
