How to “Charismatize” Your Outbound Sales Strategy

In the impersonal world of cell phones and emails, there are a number of ways sales teams can ensure they are prepared to consistently make a good impression during sales conversations. Whether you are cold calling or speaking with a current client, here are some tips to add charisma to your outbound sales calls:

  1. Meet face-to-face by video or in-person: In phone or text interactions you lose 55% of communication by being unable to see your lead’s body language, facial expressions, and emotional reactions to what you’re telling them, and with communication playing such a crucial process in deal-making, your sales team is losing out on important details that could help your company win the business.
  2. Make the idea of meeting irresistible: By telling the customer that you have visuals you would like to present or a demo that would be best shown in person will make the face-to-face meeting a must-have.
  3. Be willing to meet the prospect on their terms: Being flexible in both timing and place will give ample opportunity for the meeting to happen. Use calendar tools that can help to see what time would work best for you and the customer so you’re not going back and forth on best times.
  4. Concentrate on the customer and not the sale: It can be tempting to work on getting the customer to buy on that first contact, but save that for a later date. First, work on figuring out a time on a calendar when you can meet, and prepare to show up authentically. The sale will follow.
  5. Communicate with confidence: It can be intimidating for prospects to hop on a sales call if they’re unfamiliar with the process or technology. It’s up to your sales team to boost their confidence which in turn helps them communicate more effectively. educate the customer and eliminate the friction to make the meeting happen.
