Selling over the phone may arguably be more challenging than doing so in person. You can't read your client's body language, can't show off an eye-catching, colorful presentation, and you don't exactly have much leeway time wise. You need to bait and hook in the first few minutes of a call (maybe even seconds), and find a way to get through to the often annoyed person on the line. Basically, a job as a salesperson in a call center is not for everyone.
Those who are considering a career in this field need to be able to handle not only the pressures of cold calling, but other, sometimes stressful, realities of the job. For instance, calls are monitored and often timed, a certain quota of calls may need to be maintained, and customers won't always be in the most pleasant mood, but must still be dealt with in a warm and friendly manner. Take this test to find out more about what call center selling involves, and if you have the traits and skills needed to thrive in this occupation.
