Telemarketing is not as easy as it looks. Telemarketing involves 
talking on the phone to someone you do not know and trying to 
convince them to buy a product, use a service, or sign up for a 
special offer. Many times, telemarketers fail because they are 
not doing the job properly. Speaking is a skill, and there are 
techniques that can be applied to speaking that will help anyone 
become a successful telemarketer. These are the seven steps to 
successful telemarketing. 

Step #1: Motivation. One of the most important things in 
telemarketing is motivation. Someone has to want to do the job. 
The overall motivation will determine how they speak to people. 
So, successful telemarketers are very motivated to do the job.

Step #2: Product knowledge. In order to successfully speak about 
a product or a service, the telemarketer must know about the 
product or the service. Customers will ask questions before they 
buy or sign up for something, so the telemarketer should be able 
to answer the questions. Knowing the product or service will help 
the telemarketer make a successful deal.

Step #3: Know the call format. There telemarketer should have a 
call format or a call plan. They should know the order of the 
call: the introduction, the description of the product, the 
price, the value of the product, how to order, and the closing. 
Many companies will have a script to follow. A successful 
telemarketer will know the script and use it to their advantage.

Step #4: Attitude. Attitude is evident on the phone. When someone 
is happy and excited, those emotions will palatable, even on the 
phone. Angry, upset, or frustrated telemarketers are usually not 
successful. So, the successful telemarketer will have a positive 
attitude while doing their job.

Step #5: Know the customer. A good telemarketer will know the 
customer. Know when it is a good time to call. Calling during 
dinner, early in the morning, or late at night will not be 
successful. If you call at a bad time, ask the customer when a 
better time to call would be. Know what they are looking for. Do 
not try to sell them something they are not interested in. This 
will create hostility. Listen to what the customer has to say. 
Their comments and input can help you guide the direction of your 
call. Respect the customer's feelings and comments. Knowing the 
customer is a successful technique for any telemarketer.

Step #6: Visualize your success. Many telemarketers receive 
bonuses or rewards for a job well done. A successful telemarketer 
will visualize his or her success. They set goals and work 
towards those goals. Having a vision of what you want to get 
out of this job will help create a successful telemarketer.

Step #7 Enjoy the success. A successful telemarketer will always 
take the time to enjoy the fruit of their hard work. They will be 
proud of their successes and will continue to strive for future 

In conclusion, these seven steps are simple techniques that any 
telemarketer can immediately apply to be successful. The way the 
materials are presented, the attitude, the knowledge, and the 
motivation are all integral parts of a successful telemarketer. 
Telemarketing is not an easy job, but it can be a very successful 
and rewarding job by following these seven proven steps to
