Hinweis der Redaktion

  • Before we go any further, let’s clearly discuss what objections are.

    Objections are a prospect’s best weapon when they answer your cold call. They are statements or questions that the prospect will throw at you and they are like mini stops signs that the prospect will hold up. They use to try to take a control of the call and take it in a direction of their choosing. And if they begin to feel like you are selling something when they are not looking to buy, they will want try to end the call and will use objections to get there as soon as possible.

    Now let’s take a look at common objections and ones that you are just about guaranteed to run up against.

    I am busy right now. Who are you with?
    What is this in regards to?
    I am not interested.
    Just send me some information.
    We already use somebody.
    We are not looking to make a change right now.
    We do not have any budge to spend.

    Those are eight objections that consistently come up. You could maybe tweak those for your situation, and add a couple that are specific to your products, you would have a complete list of objections to be prepared for. As part of this training, we will explain these one at a time and show you how to get around them.

  • This last step that we will discuss is what will be needed to achieve mastery in this area and this is to reflect back on cold calls after they end. Right after a call ends, spend a few seconds to identify what objections the prospect had. Think about how you responded and if your responses were effective at keeping the call going.

    This is basically a learning and fine tuning step and we are trying to identify if the response that we gave was not effective, would there be one that would have been better.

    From there, we can work to update the objections map. It could be the case that the objections we faced were not on there and we need to get them on there. Or may we need to tweak our responses to ones that might work a little better.

    Remember, these objections are going to come up again and again. And by reflecting back, we can improve moving forward.
