Before you can talk to a prospect and start generating interest, you need to know and understand your company, product line and compensation plan. Being educated will give you more confidence when you are talking to your leads because you will be able to answer questions, overcome objections and determine the potential fit with your prospect. Now, this does NOT mean you have to explain everything about your business. you simply need to know where to point them. Having a link to a video about your compensation plan will save you time and frustration of trying to explain it over the phone. You also want to use whatever resources and tools your company has to lessen the amount of talking you have to do on the phone.
The stats these days between Inbound and Outbound Marketing are rather staggering. Marketing has evolved over the years. Especially with the advent of social media and content marketing, people no longer rely on advertisements (or 'outbound marketing') to learn about new products, services or opportunities. The new marketing communication (or 'inbound marketing') has become a two-way dialogue and much of this is facilitated by social media.
