Four Steps to Doing Phone Call Invites

 

 

Now you’re ready to start inviting from your list of prospects, but you’re not quite sure how to go about it……..

 

Below are a few tips on exactly what you need to do.

Phone calls are the quickest and most efficient way to reach someone you know. They’re warmer and friendlier than the average text message or email, and you don’t have to go out of your way to physically meet your invitee.

 

You just have to keep one thing in mind: The purpose of this call is to invite the prospect tocome and see the business…and that’s all.

 

 

You will be tempted to explain the business—heck, you may even want to do the presentation over the phone! Please resist this temptation. Many people are not the auditory type who can easily visualize what you’re saying, and from there agree straight-away to join your business.

 

 

Presenting over the phone will most likely not get you the results that you want, and can even deter people from attending the presentation, so zip the lips! It’s better to have them meet you, where you can use every available tool you have in your arsenal to persuade and close them.

 

 

So now that the objective is clear, let’s move on to the steps.

 

 

Step 1: Preparation

 

First, set a particular time to make calls.  There isn’t one particular schedule that will be an exact fit for everyone, but people usually have time to speak with you in the morning right before work, just after their lunch break, or after work hours. So try to schedule your calls around those times.

 

 

Next, find a quiet place where you can make your calls undisturbed, and where you won’t disturb anyone else, say, your office or any private room.

 

 

Take a deep breath to clear your head, think about what you’ll say, then begin.

 

 

Step 2: Invitation

 

 

On the actual call itself, begin with this script:

 

“Hi Dana, it’s me Roger! How are you? (banter for a while) Great, I won’t take up too much of your time because I have a meeting to attend. I just wanted to share something with you briefly.– I’ve just started this amazing business with potential for global distribution, and I want to share it with you. Are you free to meet on Wednesday or Thursday evening?”

 

 

Simple, isn’t it? But this script actually does several things: a) it lets you reconnect or build rapport with your prospect; b) it gives them the signal that you don’t have long to talk and thus have no time to give details (the meeting can even be a lunch or dinner); c) it gives them the impression that your big business is worth getting excited about, and; d) it gives them the choice of two dates when YOU’RE free to present.

 

 

Feel free to alter the script as necessary, as long as you keep the above elements.

 

 

Step 3: Handling Questions & Objections

 

 

In a perfect example, your prospect will say, “Yes I’m free,” whereupon you give the time and place to meet for the presentation, thank them, and hang up. Moving on to the next name on your list.

 

 

Of course, we don’t live in a perfect world and it’s highly likely that you’ll face some type of objection or questions, so here are some possible answers to questions they may have:

 

 

Q. What kind of business is this?

 

Answer: “It’s a bit much to explain the details over the phone. I’d rather you see it for yourself, that’s why we need to meet. Is A or B better” (A or B being the dates and times you choose).

 

 

Or you can answer, ‘It’s a new business concept, that’s why we need to meet. Is A good or …”

 

 

Q. Is it Sales?

 

“Why, do you like sales? (Answers yes or no) Great, that’s why we need to meet. Is A good or …”

 

or

 

“We’re not looking for salespeople, we’re looking for business people.  Is A good or ,,,”

 

 

Q. How much do I need to invest?

 

“We’re not looking for investors, we’re looking for business people. Is A good or …

 

“The company is fully funded. We’re looking for smart, key people to work with us. Is A good or …”

 

Q. Is it Company A/Company B (other big name networking companies)?

“It’s not Company A/Company B, that’s why we need to meet.  Is A good or …”

 

Q. Is it Networking/MLM/Direct-selling?

 

“It’s a new business concept, that’s why we need to meet. Is A good or …”

 

“What do you know about networking?” (answers sales, recruiting, etc.)  “This is not about sales or recruiting, that’s why we need to meet. Is A good or…”

 

Q. Is it a Pyramid Scheme?

 

“That’s illegal. This business is completely legal, that’s why we need to meet. Is A good or …”

 

If the prospect is still unsure, you can use the following power lines as well:

 

a. “You know me, I wouldn’t call you if I didn’t think this is important.”

b. “I’m not asking you to commit to anything. Just come and see what I’m talking about.”

c. “I’m looking for key business people I trust who can be a good fit for this organization. I immediately thought of you.”

d. “If the money is right and it won’t impact what you’re doing now, would you be open to seeing this business?”

 

Step 4: Secure the Meeting

 

Once your prospect says yes, agree to the time and place to meet. Repeat the time and place so they won’t forget—better yet, email or text it to them. After that, it’s a matter of following them up a day or two before you meet.

 

Always focus on your objective—to get them to come and see the business, not to give details on the phone. Finally, always give them the impression that you’ll be happy to see them. To do that, simply SMILE while you’re talking. Even if they can’t see you, people can hear a smile through your voice.

 

Good luck and happy calling!
