Establishing good rapport with the attendees of your teleseminar is extremely important if you are hoping they will buy any products or services from you. Trust is one of the easiest things to ruin so here are a few tips on making sure you build, instead of destroy their trust.
Upong setting your timeframe for you teleseminar, stay with it. Time is of the essence and you have to keep that in mind by sticking to your planned time line because your attendees may have other plans, and leave your teleseminar to honor them. If you start losing callers you will certainly lose sales.
Any call services that may end up interrupting your call, like call waiting or instant messaging, should be turned off. With all of the beeping and other notifying sounds that come with call services, nobody will be able to stay focused, including you. Another bad thing that could happen is that an extra caller on your calling plan could send your first conversation off the line.
You can not worry about making a killing each time you host a teleseminar, but that you get better. You can lose an audience by resorting to simplistic hard-sell techniques, so you have to be creative and approach things indirectly. This kills sales rates and causes many people to remember you more for a negative thing, than the positive you want them to remember you for.
Always return to the reason your have set up your seminar. The reason people called in and are listening to you is to find out more about how your product can help them, so do them the highest service by making a great case for their purchase of your product and representing yourself well in the process. Using manipulative sales tactics and aggressive high pressure in your teleseminar never boosts sales and frequently causes people to ignore you in the future, and that is not good for you.
It may not seem easy but striving to live up to the expectations that your customers have for you will be better for your business, and push you in new directions. Knowing that a good word travels at one tenth the speed of a bad word, you realize that you have to make many more people happy with you to succeed.
