EXERCISE1.Use your recorder to record a number of normal conversations, then record a number of sales calls.Listen to your tape and compare your causal voice to your presentation voice.2.Now make notes regarding the things you need to improve in your presentationvoice as you go.3.Write out the answers to a couple of the primary objections you encounter in your sales presentation,then present those answers to your recorder using your notes as a guide to improve your presentationvoice.4.Repeat this process a couple of times. After each repetition, take some time to listen to a professionalpresenter (motivational speaker, news anchor,). As you listen to these people, think aboutwhat they are doing with their voice for effect, and see how they use vocal tactics to influence theaudience.5.One of the key things you must do in your presentations is to avoid losing your energy or enthusiasm,even when the going gets tough on the phone. This was the reason I suggested you write out some ofthe key objectives. Try at this point to come up with some other negative situations, then write outyour answers and use them to practice your presentation voice.
EXERCISE1.Lay out the typical scenarios for the decision- making process in your business. This would include the titles and relationships of the decision makers you usually talk to. Set a plan for presenting to the different decision makers.2.Develop a series of questions that will qualify the decision maker and the decision-making process for you.3.Look for questions and statements you can use to avoid making a presentation
