Appointment setters basically have the responsibility to discuss the advantages your products have to potential clients. Before they are transferred to sales, the clients undergo several telemarketing engagements first before deciding whether or not so-and-so a product suits their current needs for data protection and system stability.


To improve your chances of winning sales, the quality of your appointment setting should undergo constant enhancement.

Here are some tips to increase the efficiency of your appointments and ensure continuity in satisfying sales goals and customers.


Make value count

In order to get that coveted appointment, it is important to put precedence on the strengths your product has for the buyer. Differentiate its features from those offered by your competitors. Give the client several reasons that your solutions are more valuable, and don’t just take no for an answer. Make your clients understand there is a sense of urgency in upgrading their systems using your security solutions as hackers have developed more sophisticated techniques that only up-to-date security systems (like yours) can combat.

Ask and listen

It’s ideal to ask questions and let your prospects answer them. This will end up in them giving away hints on their preferences which you can use to your advantage in succeeding contacts.

Stay relevant

Like a train, your conversations should stay on the right track towards a sale. Do not let the engagement drift to topics unrelated whatsoever to the present issues the client wants to resolve.

For an apt tip: Try to build your discussions around a particular issue that poses the most serious database security challenge to the client. If he wants to reduce system vulnerabilities to certain malware threats, introduce him to the best anti-malware software you have in your product line.
