As a professional actor/voice-over artist, I have spent many years reading and performing scripts.
Scripts used to sell travel destinations, vehicles, and all manner of products and services to a variety of demographics across North America and parts of Europe. Some are brilliantly written, others not so much, but it is always my job to bring those scripts to life in the most exciting, enticing and appealing way I can for my clients. They, at the end of the day, are looking for sales results and I am hired because of my skill, voice and look to help them sell!

Presenting A Sales Script Yourself
If you are thinking about getting out in front of the camera and presenting your own Sales Script there are many things to take into consideration. Your Camera Presence, Posture, Facial Expressions, and What to do with your entire body during the process. Unless you are an actor or have the previous training these are not things that can be learned overnight. Also, what about your voice? How does it sound? Do you speak clearly, concisely and with diction? Is there a Resonance and Tone that will keep people engaged? What if you speak with an accent or a nasal pitch? So many things to learn and so little time. Take the fear and anxiety out of presenting your own script with a little training. This is another area where I can help you. Check out my testimonials below. Some of the best in their fields have used me to whip them into shape before taking the plunge.

Tips on Writing a Sales Script
Writing a Sales Script is not an easy task. There are so many things to take into consideration before you start:
- How do you want the script to come across?
- What kind of language do you use to get your message across?
- Do you want it to be a HARD Pitch or are you looking for something more natural?
- Are there too few or too many words?
- How do you know when it is right?
- What do I want?
- How do you close the deal/make the sale?
Your focus should always on your prospect and you should speak their language. If your industry has a particular lingo – and don’t they all – make sure you use it! You cannot market yourself as the expert if you do not know the language. There are times, however, when the industry may use “certain” lingo, but your prospect doesn’t know or use it. If this is the case speak plainly. Your intent should always be clear, concise communication. You want to be understood! Your Sales Script does not need to be a HARD SELL to get your point across unless that is your style. Bolster your pitch by using your personality, after all, it is you who is supposed to be the expert. Tell them in your own words how you saved them time, money or how they benefit from YOUR knowledge, service or product! You might want to include different success stories depending on the type of lead you are working.
Sales scripts should be fluid. Whether you are face to face with your prospect or via multi-media platform, your conversation should be an extension of yourself. You need to determine what parts of your script will bring that buyer over to your side. Make sure you leave maneuvering room in your script if you need to change tactics down the road. Always be prepared by knowing which of your benefits interest your prospective target market and throw your focus on those. Have several success stories that you can use and don’t be afraid to say the unexpected or to use humour. Keeping a prospect’s attention over a short time period by saying the RIGHT thing works far better than prattling on with too much information, especially those intended for online marketing campaigns. Short, Sweet and to the Point will outsell any long-winded explanations of WHY. Knowing how to get it right goes a long way.
Now that you have your prospect’s interest you have to ask yourself the question “WHAT DO I WANT?” You want to get your foot in the door and turn that prospect into a customer who will buy your product or service. Do this by introducing yourself, your product/service and your company in an enticing way that excites them to buy!
Closing and this is the tough bit. Is this prospect worth your time and energy? Closing is always the toughest part of any Sales script. Even after you have all your ducks in a row and it seems like a sure thing there is an IMMEDIATE action required. If there is no sense of urgency a prospect can walk away, take time to think about what they MIGHT want to do or worse they may NEVER return to make that sale. Whether you are presenting a video sales letter or an online written script a CALL TO ACTION is required, you have to decide what that will be. Is it a time sensitive offer? A discount they won’t receive elsewhere? or maybe it’s an Add-On to services or Exclusive Membership to a private online forum etc… whatever it is it has to be Authentic. It has to offer added value for product or service rendered. In that moment the prospect has to believe that if they do not Grab up what is in front of them they will no longer have access to it later. This sense of urgency is the KEY to closing a sale along with your knowledge and the ability to satisfy your prospective new clients. SO…get out there and create a massive revenue script.
