Telemarketing scripts

Well-developed Telemarketing Scripts Will Open Doors

That You Never Even Knew Existed?

Strategic Marketing scripts incorporate the science and art to strengthen the power of the message.  There is nothing elaborate or complicated about our method.  In fact, our script is usually short and to the point.  The power is extremely subtle and often quite subliminal, producing a dynamic psychological impact.So why don?t most telemarketing firms use the more advanced dynamics of psychological elements in their scripts? Well, as human nature demonstrates, people tend to stick with what they know best and are hesitant to learn a new way of doing things.  However, ?without change?there is no progress?.

Ever Get A Call From A Telemarketer

Who Sounds Like They Are Reading From A Script?

I don?t think there is anything more annoying, insulting and downright unprofessional.  Our telemarketers are highly trained in script delivery.  Our callers are skilled in responding to non-scripted interactions?they know how to listen as well as deliver the message.  Our consultants pay attention to the prospect?s use of words and responds appropriately.  Another technique we use in script delivery is non-verbal methods, such as when to pause and listen?this helps build an instant rapport to get the results you deserve!

Honesty Win Win Win

Honesty - Management - Service - Interest - Serve - Customers

Honesty is a very powerful tool that, if harnessed properly, can be both self-serving and profitable for any business. The secret is to find a way to create an environment where selfishness can and will serve two masters. How can that be done?  I'm glad you asked!


Remember why you came to work today, and be honest with yourself. Your first answer (company line) is that you wanted to get started on making your company the best and most highly-respected locally, nationally or in the world. But ask again, this time giving yourself a chance to reflect a bit further. OK, so you might have come to earn a paycheck so that you can pay the bills and possibly have a little left over to spend on yourself. The introspection continues: Will I have more income than expenses this week?  Will I be able to take a vacation? Can I afford to go out to dinner tonight rather than having to eat at home in front of the television? Suddenly, your honorable corporate mantra seems a little less believable. You?re horrified with yourself.


Don't be ashamed. Aligning personal goals with professional objectives is the win-win of management today. Every employee in the company must clearly understand that the way they make more money is for the company to make more money. They must understand how going the extra mile will result in their personal gain. How will they be able to improve their lives by improving the service or products the company has to offer?


Compensation plans that are too complicated or take too long from the time of service to reward are not the answer. False hope and empty promises will do more to decrease morale than any other aspect of management. Reward programs must be easy to understand, directly tied to measurable outcomes, and frequent in nature. When you start to see small increases in your pay over a short period of time it will motivate you and others to keep up the good work.

Tribune Publishing



When I sat down with Harvey Greenberg, CEO of Strategic Marketing Consultants, Inc. a Valley based consulting company, I told him we need to know the what, where & how of his business! Without missing a beat he smiled and said "Strategic Marketing Consultants, Inc. is all about the What, Where & How of marketing strategies and solutions." Bom in Boston, Massachusetts Harvey has lived a well schooled, well traveled life, resulting in a wide variety of business experience. Starting off in the 60's with a business degree from Boston University , he opened his own concert promotion business in his first year at UCLA while pursuing a psychology degree. He soon found himself immersed in the world of sales, marketing, advertising and promotion with local, national and international companies. From car dealerships to home remodeling, Harvey increases sales wherever he goes. Not ready to retire his old school expertise in taking companies to the next level, he finds his services are still in high demand. His phone consistently rings with offers from medium to large companies to train, motivate and generally reshape the bottom line profitability through streamlining sales and lead generation efforts.



Harvey explains to me why companies need Strategic Marketing. He says imagine you're a company doing $10,000,000 a year. After reviewing the numbers for that year, you see that $3,000,000 more could have been made but wasn't because of poor systems, accountability, inefficient personnel, lack of sales motivation or for various other reason. The fact is, you could have, and should have, made $13,000,000 for the year. How would you feel? I would feel bad, I tell him.



What Harvey does is show business owners and high level executives what they're already aware of, but don't know how to implement the necessary changes. Most companies could do more he says and even though technology has changed and continues to evolve, the process and systems in place are somewhat the same...they just need to be tweaked. He tells me that the initial consumer contact with a company is how your business is perceived. Most of Harvey's business comes from referrals, from ambitious companies who seek business consultations that provide quick and viable solutions. I asked him about his initial approach when asked for a new client consultation. Harvey says, "A fresh set of eyes and ears is invaluable. It is almost impossible to be your own business mentor." "1 can come into a company... hear their sales pitch, observe and listen to their lead generation program, sales closing techniques and more often than not the process needs to be upgraded by utilizing a more in depth and aggressive training program." "Imagine a car dealership" he says, "they literally pounce on you when you walk in looking for a car. It's more transaction motivated than relationship oriented, customers want that personal touch."



Communicating with Harvey is fun because he's been around the block, heard every rejection, schmooze & buzz word. James he says "it all comes down to a system that has a beginning, a middle and an end that results in a greater sales percentage which, of course, is in direct correlation to the quality of leads being generated. I'm a guy that believes in quality before quantity. Harvey also says "Companies are like people, they need to learn by example...show them how, don't tell them how!" My lifetime mantra for success has included three key components: Good Work Ethic, Positive Attitude and the Ability to Communicate.



If you go to his corporate website www.whatwherehow.net you soon leam why companies demand Strategic's services. Harvey says, "Most companies deal with the same issues everyday." "Want to grow your business faster? Looking for a better-defined strategy to help you grow more quickly? Are sales sluggish or even dropping? Are you in a price war or facing new competitors? He says, "Marketing is not just advertising and it's not just generating awareness. Marketing is an integral, strategic function that drives your business. The purpose of marketing is simply to "Sell More Stuff, To More People, More Often, For More Money, More Efficiently!"
