B2B Appointment Setting: How To Make Headways

Building rapport is one of the most important aspects of B2B appointment setting, and is also the secret to cracking leads. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not that easy to gain the trust of prospects. Often, marketers lose out on the opportunity simply because they try too hard. Here’s a glimpse of how one can excel at getting the interested client on the same team.

B2B appointment setting is a skill, an art, or in some contexts, even a science. Long story short, it’s not something a person is born with, and can be learned. The first guideline in this regards is to ensure that one shows genuine interest in the prospect. The thing about genuine interest is that nobody can fake it. And neither should one try to do so. Doing it half-heartedly  for the sole intention of getting an appointment is not exactly going to get the desired result. Worse still, if the prospect gets even a hint of insincerity, it’s going to be quite the uphill climb! So, it’s better to be real and be keen towards getting the business.

Another important trait in B2B appointment setting is to listen carefully, looking for words and phrases that the prospect likes to use. These can be put to use quite effectively in future conversations to get on the same page, and also serve as a benchmark of the style of communication that would work. Also, different clients handle information in different styles. For instance, someone might want to create a brochure or white paper about the offering, or just make do with a summary. Another aspect is that some decision makers are very finicky about the fine details, while others are just about fine with anything. So, it’s important to note these aspects while dealing with clients to ensure that they give their business as well as faith – both of which are priceless assets.
