When approaching a potential prospect, here are some more tactics that you should think about when it comes to sales prospecting techniques.

It is vital to know the types of questions to ask. There are questions that can be answered with one word or brief phrases and that will most likely lead the prospect to feel uncomfortable, lose interest in the conversation and want to leave or hang up on you.

Obviously avoid questions that can be answered with a simple phrase or a “yes” or “no”. Instead try questions that start with:

“What is…”

“How can I/we/you…”

“What do you thing about…”

“Why is that important to you…” or

“How do you feel about…”
