4 Ways to Avoid Rejection during Cold Calls

woman-using-iphoneIf the word “telemarketing” is not one of your favorite words, this message is for you.

It is not a favorite word for many who have been hired for the purpose of making cold calls,

because…

…the fear of rejection is real and painful.

It is the reason many salespeople don’t make cold calls…or make very few calls.

Connecting with your future loyal clients is a better way to think about cold calling.

Really.

And you can do it without feeling sleazy.

If you are experiencing rejection on your sales calls, you’ll learn that it may not be your fault.

It could be the fault of the selling approach you are using during cold calls.

4 Ways to Avoid Rejection during Cold Calls

First – and very important – motivate yourself.

1.) Before you start making cold calls, read the positive testimonials customers have written for you or your company’s products or services.

2.) Approach your calls with the knowledge that you are helping people because you have a product or service that will make their lives better or easier.

3.) Spend time with positive people and stay away from negative co-workers.

4.) Register for my 4-week private e-Course because I will teach you how to make a positive difference – and feel more comfortable – in the way you approach prospects by phone.

Feedback

After the first week of the e-Course, Felipe Hernandez wrote:

“Already in the first week of the Ann Barr e-Course I’ve learned a lot about how to approach my work. I am able to walk away from the first week with a much clearer idea of how to approach prospects and what they want to hear from me versus what I want to say.”

Two spaces available

.Because this course includes four weeks of once-a-week private telephone sales training and coaching where I will work personally with you, the course is limited to the first 10 people who register, and there are just two spaces still available for the course beginning on Wednesday.

You can see a description of the course + tuition investment on this page and/or on my blog

If you would like to register – or have questions – send me a message and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Think about this:

The fear of rejection starts with a lack of self-confidence.

Confidence is a state of mind.

It is something that we do, not something that we are.

It is a way of thinking.

That means it is something everyone can learn.

And it is easier than you think.

I can teach you how to avoid rejection by changing your marketing approach and help you increase your self-confidence.

How do I know this?
