Podcast: Insider secret — overcoming your fear of the phone

Build confidence and downplay rejection when prospecting via phone
  • Do you feel nervous about phone prospecting?
  • Fear of the phone -- especially phone prospecting -- is very common, and it results in a big problem for a lot of agents.
  • Maybe you're a killer salesperson when you're looking someone in the eye, but unless you can carry that through to your phone communication, you're going to fighting an uphill battle with your leads, prospects and clients.

Do you feel nervous about phone prospecting? Perhaps you’ve got some trepidation because you’re not sure exactly what to say, or maybe you have a little fear of what you might hear in response to it?

Prospecting is where this all starts — because if you can build confidence and comfortability while you’re phone prospecting, then everything else should fall into place.

Today we’re discussing a variety of strategies for phone prospecting to improve your contact and connect rate, so you can hear “yes” more often on the phone — and not feel depressed when you hear “no.”
