Want to REALLY Connect? Don’t Email. Just Place a Phone Call

The most effective and personal way to persuade, sell, negotiate, share information, and communicate in general is through voice communication. Sadly, the practice of actually talking to others is becoming rarer, replaced with emails, texts, and other forms of social media that actually leave us more DISconnected than in touch.

    Awesome video! Crazy how people will take 10 minutes to type out an email to say something they could get across in one minute, more effectively by phone. Great job Art, we’re spreading the message!

    great message Art. If only every sales rep would remember this in their everyday work style.

    Ironically, I have to send you an email to comment…lol. I love sales and the phone, unfortunately, no one else does and they tend to screen there calls, so the question is, how do you get the other side to answer the phone? I leave hundreds of voicemails with lots of variety to peak interest, and it’s amazing that the recipient sends me an email in response to my voicemail instead of just picking up the phone and returning my call. Crazy world.

    Every point on that message is so true not only in business but in our personal lives too. Forgive the pun but there is an “Art to conversation”. Words on a page never can convey conviction, passion or care like your voice. We need a video like that geared toward those who only text, never talk to you….another topic!

      It IS meant for texters too, Peggy! Send them the video, they can watch on their phone 🙂

    Agreed – emails are cold – voices are the warmth of communications / you can make someone’s day by interacting with them in a very short period of time versus banging out paragraphs of information that people who have little to no time to read or comprehend.

    Thanks Art, for reminding me that connections are made one on one, not on a keyboard.
    Do you ever get north of the border, around the Toronto area?

    • Art Sobczak February 28, 2014, 7:54 am

      Love Toronto! Nothing on the books there right now. I go where I’m hired for company in-house and association training, other than my public two-day programs, coming up in Chicago and Charlotte in May http://www.businessbyphone.com/telesales-college/
