Eight (8) Simple Ways To Handle A Business Call And Turn It Into A Profitable Business Transaction..

1. Be Clear About What You Want, Establish Clarity of the Call: Know why you are calling or why the caller is calling. Get the details; always keep a jotter when receiving a call to keep track of the caller's Name, Time, and Message. Get the value specification and the income possibility message. Please write it down, you may have so much to store in your head for the day. It makes it easy to ACT on or to pass on should the process be continued or concluded by another team member.

2. Mannerism Matters: Get the Appeal, Be Magnetic. If you don’t Connect, You Can’t Collect.

Over the phone, Don't chew, type or converse while receiving a call. Many people lose their manners because they feel they can't see the person. Your respect quotient is higher when you are invisible than when you are visible. Voice tone, facial displeasure, and attitude disposition can be perceived on phone.

3. . LISTEN, Don't interrupt a caller. Listening patiently has financial worth. Don't jump in; listen to understand not respond. Listening is to read body language, raise the perception of confidence and identify where the pain is and what prescription of value your caller is seeking.

In business calls, Be strategically economic. Make it profitably commercial. It can be interesting to talk longer and outside the business when it is not your money being burnt.

That will also create Repeat Business and referrals for you. Via phone, your caller would be expecting a return call. Decisions may be hanging on that return call. Your business reputation is also under assessment.

Over the phone, the customer may be far and not visible but your conduct has PALPABLE VALUE that can condition if they will patronize you or refer your service for a BIGGER WIN. Many people loose deals from the phone. Don't be the next victim. The Next time you Make or pick up a Business call, let us know you are in business or business minded. Did you get any value?
