Truth Dialing; No More Intimidating, Sleazy, Pushy Sales Calls

January 29, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 pm

The old way of making sales calls doesn’t work. If you don’t want to feel like a sleazy telemarketer dealing with lots of rejection, there is a new way.

In this 30 minute e-Class you’ll learn how to:

  • Set more appointments with better fit prospects using this integrity-based method
  • Change the dynamic of the call in your opening sentence
  • Successfully interact with the gate keeper
  • Warm up your call and get a welcomed reception from your prospect
  • Quickly build trust and have a transparent dialogue (no Jedi mind-tricks)

Chris Harris, Chief Refuser from RefuseOrdinary, will be sharing a 30 minute e-class with Will Turner and himself. Following the eclass Chris will be available in person for questions and answers. Chris works with revenue drivers so they can CRUSH their numbers, rock their productivity and all while making a meaningful difference.

9:30am – Check In and mingle

10:00am – 30 minute online eclass featuring Will Turner and Chris Harris from Refuse Ordinary

10:30am – 30 minutes question and answer session with Chris Harris.


What others are saying…

Well organized, easy to listen to, liked the length, covered the topic well.  This reminded me to be mindful of no pressure sales language, which I can forget when excited or after doing so many calls. And to stop being lazy and saying, “Hi this is Jen Butler, how are you? ” right out the gate. I also liked the approach with the gatekeeper – of treating him/her just as you would the decision maker. So many sales ‘authorities’ talk about how to get around that person, which is so wrong.    – Jen Butler, Core Marketing
