By being prepared you can organize your thoughts, be ready to answer questions & avoid wasting the clients time. Adequate Time:- Take steps that you will not be interrupted while making a call to your client. Clients deserve your undivided attention. Direct Contact:- Always dial the call personally. It can irritate a client if he is made to hold the line for a prolonged period with the hold music on.
  15. 15. TELEPHONE ETIQUETTES  Courtesy & Respect:- Intermediaries such as Secretaries, Receptionist, Clerks & Assistants should be treated courteously and with due respect over phone.  Brevity :-. Calls should be kept short and to the point unless the client want to chat. Avoid giving the information of being in a hurry. Never slam the receiver down while the client is online.  Timing :- Respect the hours of the client. Avoid calling during the late afternoon or early morning hours not even too late at night until & unless the client is OK with it.
  16. 16. TELEPHONE ETIQUETTES Points to be checked during communication over phone  Tone Of Voice :- Your voice should reflect sincerity, pleasantness, confidence & interest. It is important to have a ‘verbal smile’ – something you can achieve by smiling ass you speak.  Pitch :- A low – pitched voice is desirable. Low voices carry better and are more pleasant to the listener.  Inflection :- Avoid talking in a monotone. Enunciate clearly and emphasize key words. You can generate interest by modulating your voice.  Understandability :- Avoid talking with anything (Gum, cigarette, pen or pencil etc.) in your mouth. Be careful not to talk too fast.
