How To Remove The Fear Of The Phone And Accelerate Your Business

These days most people seem to be afraid of the phone. Perhaps it’s the fear of being rejected, or being put “on the spot” to perform live. Regardless, while communication mediums like email are extremely effective, the phone is still one of the most powerful tools to connect with your audience effectively.

Over my years of teaching clients how to increase their profits and get more clients quickly and easily, I’ve found there are 6 levels of communication.

Here they are, from least effective to most effective, for creating connection, building rapport, and making a profitable appointment with a potential client.

6th – Email/Text

5th – Letter

4th – Telephone Call

3rd – Skype/FaceTime

2nd – Face-to-Face Meeting

1st – Meeting with Food

So while in-person communication will always be the most effective method, it’s not always an option due to competing schedules or distance.

Aside from face-to-face communication, the telephone is the most effective way to make powerful connections with our prospects.

I’m sure you know that making appointments by telephone can be both frustrating and stressful, but some people have figured out a way to make confident, effective phone calls every single time without stress.

Everyone knows that making bad telephone calls can waste your time and be embarrassing. So I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that it’s simple to learn the skills to make brilliant telephone calls easily.

The bad news is - not everyone is taught the correct words to use, which is why some people are successful at making telephone appointments and some people continue to struggle.

Everyone knows that the more qualified leads you have, the more chances you’ll get to tell your story. And the more times you share your story, the more business you get!

Here’s a couple of really easy tips for improving your phone skills right away.

#1: Keep Records

The only way to know if we’re successful at making phone calls is by monitoring our efforts and recording the results. If we don’t keep records, we can’t break records.

So make sure to track those phone calls and use them to predict your success, and improve your phone performance.

#2 - Consider the Average

Research shows that if you can get 5 people to agree to see you...

  • 1 client will not show up
  • 1 client will not listen to you
  • 1 out of the remaining 3 clients will buy

Of course, these are general approximations, and everyone’s results will be different, but it’s not so scary when you consider that you WILL make the sale if you just play the law of averages!

So how do you get those 5 people to agree to see you?

You’re great at what you do, so you simply need more chances to tell your story to the right people! The phone can help you do that - IF - you learn the right words to say to the prospects on the other end of the line.

So would it be okay if I showed you how to make more appointments by phone with confidence by teaching you the magic words to make appointments with prospective clients?

Then you’ll get more chances to tell your story, and build your business bigger than ever.
