• 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?

We’ve coached thousands of agents, and from experience Julie and I can tell you that fear of the phone — especially phone prospecting — is very common, and results in a big problem for a lot of agents.

A lot of real estate success depends on your ability to confidently and persuasively communicate on the phone. 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.

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.”
