Telephone Skills: Inbound and Outbound

Making the most of telephone sales and service opportunities is the pathway to customer loyalty, whether customers want to place an order, ask a question or register a complaint.

  • The voice of the consumer continues to get louder. As it does, the pressure to make the most of every customer contact intensifies. At times the first contact with a customer is via the phone. At other times, customers call in as a last resort. Either way, customer service teams and call centers need to be prepared to deal with any situation they might encounter on the other end of the line.
