    What kind of sales reps? People to do face-to-face selling, telemarketing, or something else?

    Are these cold calls or hot leads?

    Have these people requested to be called by you or is it a list you bought?

    First you must have a plan and then you can begin writing your script. Phone selling is an uphill battle because you cannot use body language to influence your lead. Because of this, you must hit all of the points of persuasion to make any progress.

    So, I guess I am asking....are you sure that you are really ready to have a phone sales person?

    Usually a whole team will be needed to make the volume of calls required to be profitable after paying commissions.

    Possibly a more profitable set-up would be your phone person makes calls to hot leads and schedules an appointment for your sales people to go and make a face to face visit.

    Provide more details and you will probably get more help. A lot of people here have been knee deep in direct sales.
