How To Improve Your Voice


The Image the customer has of the Salesperson is vital. In telesales the image is created through voice alone. There is no smartly dressed representative to see, no glittering product to touch and tantalize-just a voice on the other end of the phone. However good the present telephone system may be, the fact remains that the quality of the sound of the human voice is partially lost through transmission, resulting in the client misinterpreting your meaning.

To Allow speech to be heard clearly be careful with your choice of words. Use simple words. Avoid jargon and local expressions which may not be understood by your clients. Speak clearly and use correct pronunciation. Accent can give your talk a real boost as they are unique and can sound very atttractive.

Donot waffle or attack the client. Stop to breathe. Pausing is very important. Don't speak in a monotone manner not only this make you sound boring and unethusiastic but it could be mislead that your product is lacking in substance too. And a little colour to your voice. Expressions are very important. Relax when you are talking. Imagine you were talking to your friend. Your attitude is expressed by the way you talk over the phone.

Don't rush the call and use your sales techniques. Remain professional and smile. A simple smile on the salesperson's face reflects in the voice and it really works.

1. Act naturally be yourself.
2. Smile you will sound pleasant and friendly.
3. Have all the information handy.
4. Be precise and clear.
5. Be professional.
6. Give customers what they need.
7. It does cost a lot of money to make the phone ring, so make the most use of it.

Golden Rules

1. Give your name first.
2. Say 'Good Morning'.
3. Say 'Thank you' for your time.
4. Be friendly.
5. Sit straight that will give you confidence.
6. Stay focussed.
7. Control your thoughts.
8. Concentrate on what the customer is saying.
9. Talk slowly.
10. Speak clearly and if necessary spell anything that may be unclear.
11. Be confident.
12. Be professional.
13. Organise yourself.
14. Be Alert.
15. Be in charge.
16. Always be Enthusiastic.
17. Let your voice be melodies.
18. Stress words that appeal to them.
19. Be expressive.
20. Speak as though your are talking to a friend.
21. Exceed expectations.
22. Always hang the phone after the customer has done.
