Today, our focus is on handling common objections encountered in B2B appointment setting and understanding the importance of efficiently managing objections to convert them into successful bookings or meetings.

Our training objectives revolve around equipping you, as learners, with the knowledge of common objections during appointment setting calls, the significance of objection handling, and practical strategies for handling objections in real-time.

Defining objections, we understand that objections arise when there’s a disagreement or disapproval of a proposal or statement. Just like a preference for chocolate ice cream over strawberry, prospects object when they don’t agree or believe in the value being presented.

The three key steps in objection handling are listening, acknowledging, and responding. Actively listen to the prospect, acknowledge their concerns, and respond strategically. These steps are crucial to understanding why objections are raised and turning them into opportunities.

Common objections in appointment setting include:

I’m not the right person to talk to.Use this objection to find the right contact by politely asking for a recommendation or routing to the correct department.

I’m too busy. Acknowledge their busyness and propose sending information via email for them to review during their free time.

I’m not interested. Respond by expressing understanding and asking what could have sparked interest, redirecting the conversation towards their concerns.

Just send me some information. Use this opportunity to explain the purpose of the call within 60 seconds and gauge their interest. Encourage them to schedule an appointment.

I’m not sure when I can come in. Acknowledge their need to check their schedule and propose a tentative date, allowing for rescheduling if necessary.

Administrators or personal assistants’ objections. Enlist their help in finding the most relevant person within the organization and build rapport by expressing understanding of the CEO’s busy schedule.

Understanding these objections equips you to respond effectively, turning potential roadblocks into opportunities. Remember, objections are an inherent part of the process, and handling them skillfully is key to your success.

As you progress through this training, take notes, capture screenshots, and build a reference that will enhance your objection-handling skills. If you encounter objections beyond this training, don’t hesitate to seek guidance from your managers, leaders, or experienced colleagues.
