Building Business-to-Business Relationships Over the Phone is an informative case study on developing, nurturing, and sustaining revenue through open-dialogue.

Book Overview

Every good salesperson knows making the sale is only half the battle. It’s just as important, if not more, to build a lasting relationship with the client. However, it’s a special technique to achieve the same relationship-building results over the phone as you do in face-to-face communication. The nuances of facial expression and body language are lost, putting all that much more weight on your words and selling technique.

Conquer the poor reputation of telephone sales, which has emerged due to telemarketing using Business-to-Business. This convenient reference guide shows you how to capture the customer’s full attention and generate interest in not only the first call but also each subsequent one. 

Sectioned into two parts, Business-to-Business Relationships Over the Phone shares the inside story of how a cutting-edge industrial company (Caterpillar) adopted a new sales platform while overcoming the resistance of the telephone sales. Then discover the sales techniques that work in a business-to-business telephone setting from the relationship to closing the sale.
