Time is what we all want. Time to exercise. Time with our families. Time with our hobbies. Time to go on vacation. Time with our best clients. Time to make more money.
Great corporate videos can help because people will watch it on their own time and convenience. Here’s another ‘time tool’. Want to improve the effectiveness of every future customer phone call you make? Here’s an idea. Ask them if now’s a good time to talk. That’s it. That simple request of respect can catapult your results. Why?
Let’s analyze it. If you start in with your pitch, once you hear your prospect or client’s voice, you don’t really know if they’re listening or not. All you really know is that you are talking. You may be sending out words but nobody’s hearing them! But if you ask the simple question, “Is now a good time to talk?” or “Do you have a minute to speak with me?”, you automatically are perceived differently. You are seen as someone who respects your client’s time, and someone who does not have time for idle chatter. You client may respond, “Sure what’s on your mind” or “Now is not a good time, I’m on my way to the airport”. Now you respond, “What would be a better time for us to talk?”
Chance is, she will tell you, and now you have a commitment for her, or him, to listen when you do get to talk together. You’ve booked time. This may seem trivial, but it’s these kinds of distinctions that will give you the edge over the competition in today’s challenging market.
Consider using great corporate videos to get your message across, too. Well executed, they can save you a bunch of time and even help you build trust with your customers and clients.
