Six ways to improve your sales calls [Infographic]

3 Min read

Sales calls are the best route to reach prospects. You can conveniently share the information about your products/services and get the answers you require to convert a deal.

92% of all customer interactions take place over the phone

Sales calls can help you in winning more customers. Even the founder of Uber took the help of sales calls to find his first few customers.

Quoting Travis Kalanick (Founder of Uber) – 

“I went to Google, typed in San Francisco chauffeur or San Francisco limousine, I just filled out an excel sheet and I just started dialing for dollars, right? First ten guys I called, three of them hung up before I got a few words out, a few of them would listen for like 45 seconds and then hung up, and three of them said ‘I’m interested, let’s meet.’. And if you’re cold calling and three out of ten say ‘let’s meet’, you’ve got something.”

Sadly most of the sales reps fail to make the most of this useful communication channel. Either the sales reps are nervous or they don’t use the right approach.

Selling over the phone is surely a challenging task but isn’t an impossible one. For making sales calls successful, it is necessary to have the right approach and attitude.

If you’ve recorded the sales calls then listen to those recordings to find out your strengths and weaknesses.

If your old ways aren’t working, then abandon them and try something new.

“If you don’t change your approach then you will never change your results” – Jim Rohn

A sales call isn’t just about picking the phone, dialing a number and reading from a sales script. You need to call at the right time and strike a meaningful conversation to influence the decision-maker. It is essential to have a realistic goal in mind while making the call.
