ˇBe polite and show respect by asking "Is this a good time for you?"
ˇEveryone wants to feel special, so in beginning build rapport by offering a sincere compliment or asking about her family or a special interest.
ˇUse recommended scripts and dialogue provided by your company. They are included in your training material because they have worked well! Set a goal to use script as is for at least six calls and only after trying it as is change it to suite your personal style.
ˇGo for it! You made call - now make most of opportunity by offering to:
1) Save them money by mentioning a special offer or suggesting they hold a show/party and earn free products and discounts.
