December 2016
Proactive Prospecting: Changing the Message & Delivery for Increased Engagement & Revenues
4 p.m. Eastern, Thursday, Dec. 8

Presented by Tibor Shanto, principal, Renbor Sales Solutions Inc.

Knowing who to call is one critical element of success in cold calling, but if you cannot engage with your audience long enough to communicate your value, you are only halfway to success. This webinar will focus on the critical elements of executing a proactive prospecting call — from the talk track to impact questions to handling the most common objections to voicemails and more. This webinar will present a step-by-step how-to guide with no academia or theory — nothing but a proven methodology for efficiently and effectively turning cold calls to conversations to prospects. While it is true that nothing happens until there is a sale, it is also true that there is no sale without a prospect. So, if you need prospects to deliver quota, this is the webinar for you.

Topics covered include: the importance of dynamics and persistence of execution; time allocation; developing client/prospect objectives; developing an approach for engaging with prospects and setting appointments; creating a company and individual opening approach (talk track); reviewing managing techniques for common and recurring objections; understanding the role of conversion rates and how to improve them; and mastering voicemails, emails and more.


Shanto is a sales execution specialist who was ranked eighth on Forbes.com's 2014 Social Salespeople list. He has been a sales leader for more than 25 years, helping companies improve their revenue goals. Shanto is a sought-after trainer, speaker and co-author of the award-winning book, "Shift! Harness The Trigger Events That Turn Prospects Into Customers." He is a columnist for the Globe & Mail Report on Small Business. Shanto received the Gold Medal Top Sales & Marketing Blog award, was named OpenView's Top 25 Sales Influencers in 2014, as well as Top Sales' Top 50 Sales & Marketing Influencers for 2013, 2014 and 2015.
