HERE ARE THE 5 COMMON
MISTAKES SALESPEOPLE MAKE
THAT ATTRACT OBJECTIONS
MISTAKE #1: STUDY SHOWS THAT 42% OF SALESPEOPLE
DON’T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION BEFORE CALLING A
Preparation is the key to success but most sales reps find themselves
calling and hoping for the best on every call. Don’t generalize your
prospects. Don’t think that you can call them and expect the same
scenario because every prospect has different needs.
By asking questions about
their current setup (What
they’re using,for how long
and if they have a provider,
If you have enough knowledge you may be able to turn objections
into a possible lead.
Sales expert or not, you
need to make sure you’re
aware of the product and
services that you’re
Offer your product or
services. Focus on what you
have that can benefit them
MISTAKE #2: WHEN DOING TELEMARKETING, YOU MUST
BE AGGRESSIVE, BUT IN THE RIGHT WAY, ESPECIALLY
WHEN ASKING QUESTIONS TO YOUR PROSPECT.
Assertiveness is one of the good habits of a productive salesperson when
it is done properly. It shows confidence and gives a feeling that you know
what you’re talking about. However, becoming overly assertive, can
create an aggressive tone. Being too pushy will cause prospects to brush
effectively and be direct
to the point. While
respecting the rights and
beliefs of the person
you’re talking to.
MISTAKE #3: YOU WERE LEFT WONDERING WHAT
HAPPENED. NEVER DISREGARD WHAT YOUR PROSPECT IS
SAYING JUST TO GET WHAT YOU WANT.
Sales rep: “Hi! My name is Anna from XYZ company. I’m calling about your
software. I understand you are the best person to talk to about this?”
Prospect: “Now is not a good time to talk.”
Sales rep: “That’s okay, I understand. You see, we are a software reseller
and I understand you are the best person that I can speak with who can
decide on this one, am I correct? ”
Prospect: [Hangs up]
You’re only implying that you are not listening. Most people
hang up when being ignored.
Listen to your prospect.
When you listen and respect
their time, they are more
likely to listen to you the next
time you called. Plus, you can
use this as a reason for your
If you’re into this situation
you can say; “That’s okay. I
understand. So when is the
best time to give you a call
back?” Then, immediately
thanked the prospect and
end the call gracefully
MISTAKE #4: BEING DEFENSIVE MEANS LACK OF
CONFIDENCE OR A FORM OF INSECURITY
Only discuss information your prospects need to hear. If the prospect
hasn’t brought it up, giving too much information leads to an
Sales rep: I’m just wondering, have you worked with XYZ
company(number 1 competitor) before?
Prospect: Yes! We’ve worked with them for a year.
Sales rep: We provide better service than them. You see, they have many
issues with their clients. Our services include … and you can definitely
benefit on this one.
It’s okay to discuss about your competitor. However, NEVER
bring other brands down. Even when prospect bring it up.
If the prospect mentioned
something your competitor
didn’t do, you can push the
benefits of your product or
service and offer that you
can help them on that issue.
Ask what are the concerns
and the need of the prospect
and offer what needs to be
done to turn the situation
MISTAKE #5: YOU CAN USE A SCRIPT OR YOU MAY NOT –
EITHER WAY IS FINE. BUT SOUNDING LIKE YOU’RE READING
A SCRIPT IS A TURNOFF TO EVERY PROSPECT.
When a salesperson sounds like they’re reading from a script, prospects will
feel like they’re talking to a robot and won’t feel bad if they hang up the
Use the script as your guide (In case you forget something).
Speak in your natural tone for the entire duration of the call.
Speak slowly. Know when to pause and when to stop. Don’t
know how long? Around 2 counts.
Be conversational. Try to use conjunctions to connect your
words. (NOTE: You may use fillers but minimize them)
