Telephone Cold Calling Sales Skills Seminar (Half Day Seminar)

Every sales executive who uses a telephone to maintain and grow a sales territory is familiar with the importance of cold calling. Having a set routine to prospect for new business is a crucial component of any telesales strategy and must be followed to provide a fruitful and profitable sales pipeline. Yet, many telesales and telemarketing sales executives feel apprehensive about the cold calling process. Countless sales professionals, even seasoned telesales reps, suffer from anxiety and call reluctance. Our half-day Telephone Cold Calling Sales Skills Seminar is designed to teach key skills that enable telesales and telemarketing sales reps to overcome fears associated with cold calling and establish a cold calling routine to increase leads and drive more sales. 

Taught during a convenient four-hour workshop, Telephone Cold Calling Sales Skills provides easy to use cold calling skills that new or experienced sales reps can work into their daily job routine.
