The seller needs to restore the customer's confidence by discussing various guarantees and customer service and repair policies. The seller must be able to listen and understand the customer's emotion whether it is good or bad, and they must be able to help them visualize themselves as an owner of the product they are selling.
  • Reporting
  • Another deeper level of communication is when the buyer and the seller communicate about the various values and beliefs they have. If the buyer and seller sense that the other is relating to them honestly and responsibly, then they are more likely to buy their product.

Phone Etiquette

Having proper telephone etiquette is one of the keys to improving maintaining a high level of sales and customer service. 

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Preparation
  • A more formal greeting could do more to orient the caller into the conversation rather than the informal “hello”. Through this, they can confirm that they are calling the right place and they are currently speaking to who can deal effectively with their problem.
  • Building Rapport
  • Communicating compassion is a way of building a bridge to the customer and crossing it to empathize with their pain. By only joining and acknowledging their current emotions and validating that their emotions, the customer service agent can then suggest possible remedies for the situation.
  • Speaking Clearly- Tone of Voice
  • Effective Listening
  • This is essential because this enables us to identify the root of the problem.
  1. Examples of Effective Listening

  • S= Situation
  • This reminds the speaker of the situation that surrounds the call. The customer service representative needs to orient themselves according to the situation in order to handle the call correctly and successfully.

  • Positive Redirection
  • The use of positive redirection is often used to increase the salesperson’s credibility
  • Negative Redirection
  • This is set-up by a customer to enable the company to brag about themselves. The humble attitude that a salesperson shows as the response can attract support and increase the customer's belief in the service that the company is providing.
  • Multiple Choice Redirection
  • When the customer becomes impatient and demands to have an answer immediately, a skilled seller can use this method to avoid the overuse of any question types.
