Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What’s included in the sales call template?
Glad you asked. The template comprises a number of situational scripts bucketed into three high-level categories:
- Discovery call
Within each of these sections, you’ll find a number of individual scripts. Objection handling, for example. Or tearing apart the status quo. The section for cold calling has eight individual scripts on its own. We provide you scripts and techniques for all of the different scenarios that tend to crop up during sales calls so that you’re always ready to keep the conversation going.
Who is this sales call template for?
At a fundamental level, these scripts will help any sales rep who regularly conducts cold calls, discovery calls, or demos. But they’re really for reps who need new ideas for their calls, or who constantly run into the same issues. We wrote these scripts based on our analysis of actual calls. We did the research and vetting, so you know each sales call script really works.
Why do most sales call templates fail?
If you’ve ever used a sales pitch template that fell flat on its face, or ran sales demos riddled with awkward pauses, then you know not all sales scripts are created equal. There are two primary reasons that most sales call templates fail:
- They’re too generic: Buyers listen to (and promptly discard) cold call after cold call, each and every day. Which means you have to find a way to stand out if you want to win. Most sales call templates only give you generic talk tracks, without the context you need to make them shine.
They’re not backed by research and data: Just because a seasoned sales pro says it doesn’t make it so. Each part of our sales call template is backed by our own research and analysis—no opinions or conjecture here.
What is sales enablement software?
Sales enablement software helps reps maximize sales productivity, from new-hire onboarding to personalized call coaching and training. The Gong sales enablement platform takes things a little further. We use powerful AI to automatically record, transcribe, and analyze every sales call, extracting the insights reps need to maximize their revenue generation.
