what tools are need to prospect

What are the tools a sale person needs to prospect potential customer? When advertising just donít bring in the leads. In my area of business (Kitchen & Bath remodel) I would need to prospect contractors and real estate. - by roblab
You'll need a list of prospects who are most likely to want/need what you're offering.

Next you'll need a good offer. IOW, what are you going to say.

Then you'll need a delivery mechanism; in-person, phone, mail.

Does that help? - by Mikey
You need to have best of communication tools and should be able to commute at time and should have latest technology gadgets because many clients get really effected by that - by mtajim
To be good at prospecting you need;
  • A clear desired outcome, (what)
  • A good game plan, (how)
  • A good value statement, (why)
  • A professional approach that respects your prospect and makes it easy for them to spend a little time with you.

Iíd be saying something like;

Mr ______________,


My name is_____________________from____________________
Do you have a minute to speak, (I always get the GREEN LIGHT FIRST)

I wanted to talk to you about the __________________diagnostic service we offer.(this will attach more value and credibility to you right away)

We usually sit down for about 20 minutes; get to know a little about your business and then Iíll be able to let you know if we can help. If I can help then thatís great but if I canít you will benefit from the diagnostics we have in your line of business.

NOTE; clearly you do have to have a worthwhile diagnostics toll for them of your integrity will be gone and nothings worth that. Let me know if this helps and we can go further.

Happy selling;bg

Actually that is a negative quote. The second quote gives an option of now or later, not an option for the customer not to see you. - by Jorel
