Your Opening Sales Line

You are not crazy if you talk to yourself

What are the first words you say when you meet with a client or prospect? Every wonder if your script is helping or hurting you?

It is less of an art and more a scientific formula that the combination of a smart sales process and efficient salespeople almost always produce astounding results. Companies therefore should have a vibrant and workable sales process in place to aid their sales force in achieving their sales targets smoothly.
