The telephone is the most widely used tool in sales interactions. This is due to the fact that it helps save time and money by extending geographic coverage, while still allowing a complete one-to-one interaction with prospects.

Chapter 3 addresses the preparation phase, offering essential information regarding the rules of phone call efficiency, while chapters 4 deals with the steps of the actual sales call, explaining how to reach decision makers, catch the client’s interest, investigate needs, make a successful sales presentation over the phone, overcome objections and close the sale.
