B2B Appointment Setting: How to be More Successful

There are some very basic B2B appointment setting mistakes that one needs to avoid in order to ensure a higher success rate with regards to getting more business.

There are many tactics of B2B appointment setting, with thousands of professionals trying every day to maximize revenues by getting in touch with clients and selling their products. However, in this process, there are also quite a lot of mistakes that take place, and avoiding them is of utmost importance to make the most of every opportunity.

The first mistake in this regard is to have an overtly positive mental outlook to things. Sure, one must keep hopes high while dealing with a prospect, but it’s also important to understand when making the effort is just not worth it. Since time is generally limited, it’s very important to realize when one needs to stop pursuing a lead and focus on other options. Another mistake to avoid is not to get the big picture of the prospect’s requirement. There are many times when due to the negligence of both the client as well as the salesperson, there are many disagreements at a later stage simply because the product or service offered does not solve the former’s problems.

B2B appointment setting is also often wrongly seen as a numbers game. That being said, salespersons try to make the maximum phone calls. Unfortunately, more calls don’t always translate into more closures or appointments. Hence, one needs to firstly ensure that the calling list being provided is of good quality. And if that’s the case, each and every contact must be considered a very important one. There are many salespersons who just make 10 calls a day, but get significantly higher appointments compared to those who make nearly 70-80 calls a day. The difference is not just in the approach, but also in the fact that the ones having a higher success rate do a more extensive research of their prospects. While this is more of a prerequisite than a mistake to avoid, it nevertheless is a very important part of successful appointment setting.
