Making the Call and Getting it Back!

The secret of getting people to return calls and saying YES?

Develop a rapport FIRST.

How do you develop a rapport first?
Start with talking less than 10 seconds, and then ask a connection question!

Most people just talk too much at the beginning of any conversation. You shouldn’t share for more than 10 seconds! That 10 seconds is just enough for you to give them some clarifying information like your name, company, purpose.

Now after your 10 seconds of clarifying information, ask them a connection question.
It could be something about the town they live in, an attraction nearby you have visited, how you a friend of yours has the same last name…or that you drove through their town once! By seeking connection first, asking questions, it forces you to start focusing on them and their needs. They are giving you information!

Key: if you can get them to say ‘yes’ at least 3 times during the rapport building session, they you can get them to say ‘yes’ later. This whole techniques works no matter if you’re waiting on line in the supermarket, if you’re talking to a customer at a home party, while you’re taking their order at a party, a potential new recruit, someone in your down line, or anyone you are doing business with or want to do business with.

Critical: if you want them to call or write you back, you MUST develop the rapport!

Here’s the RECAP:
1. You develop relationship first by establishing rapport
2. Talk less than 10 seconds.
3. Ask a connecting question.
4. Get them to say ‘yes’ several times.
5. You are now focused on them, their needs, so NOW share benefits of your service/product and ‘what’s in it for them!’
