A sales call can be stressful and overwhelming, especially if you’re not prepared. Creating a sales call template is one way to make the process easier. I use Notion before all of my potential sales calls. It helps to outline the steps you will take during the call, the questions you will ask, and the information you need to convey to the client. This is also where I jot down notes about the client before the call.
Creating a sales call template in Notion can help keep you on track and ensure that you cover all the necessary topics. It can also help you stay organized and make sure that you don’t forget anything important. Here are some tips for creating a sales call template:
Before you start creating your template, outline the topics you want to cover during the call. Think about the questions you need to ask and the information you need to convey to the client.
Here are a few questions that you may want to add to your sales call outline:
Asking these questions can help you understand the client’s goals, budget, timeline, and expectations. It can then help you create a proposal that is tailored to their needs. It also helps build trust and rapport with the client and sets the stage for a successful project.
Use a consistent format for your template so that it’s easy to follow. You might want to include sections for the introduction, client information, questions, and next steps. This takes away any awkwardness or nerves before a sales call because you are following a familiar format every time.
Make sure to include space for notes so that you can jot down important information during the call. This can help you stay focused and engaged during the conversation.
Once you’ve created your template, test it out during a few sales calls. Make adjustments as necessary to ensure that it’s effective and meets your needs.
Then when it is time to present the proposal you can revert to the notes you made in the sales call. I also use my notes from this call if any objections arise in the process. It helps to revert to what they initially said they wanted.
By creating a sales call template, you can streamline your sales process and ensure that you’re prepared for every call. It can also help you provide a better experience for your clients, make you more confident, and help with future sales calls.
