Thought I'd share my current phone script from my wso that is doing very well for me for landing SMS clients via restaurants. Enjoy!
P.S I find it pretty easy to get passed the gatekeeper simply with a stern, "I need to speak with the manager/owner" line.
Hey what's up, how are you? (cooool, what about you?)
Good, Im doing great thanks! My name is Arron, im calling from (your company name) out of (your city) and I was just hoping you had a second for me to ask you one quick question? (One question? No problem, Go ahead buddy)
Awesome! okay, What do you think it would do for your sales if you had the ability to send special promotional offers that only lasts 24 hours straight to your customers cell phones every single week? (Whoo, that sounds like a great idea!)
This is what I do for local restaurants just like yours! SMS marketing is the freshest and most effective way to market to your customer base and experience an unusual increase in sales every time we send out one message. Don't you think this would be a good addition to your current marketing efforts?
It all flows for me after that, it's not any magical copyrighting in here but it works for me and the owners are very much less defensive since I've started using this script. Hope this helps some of you out there, try it out.
