I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING MIKE BROOKS FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF NOW. MIKE'S INSIGHTS AND APPROACH ARE SIMPLE, STRAIGHT-FORWARD, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY ARE EFFECTIVE!

Following the insights and learning of Mike Brooks these past few years have been one of the best investments I have made in myself. It's difficult to determine the full yield of results achieved but through what I have learned and applied from Mike my sales have easily doubled - I am grateful for the work he puts into his books and services

Best sales adviser ever!
Posted by Dave Weidner on Feb 2nd, 2018.
I like his material a lot. While geared towards inside sales there are a lot of techniques useful to me in my mixed role. Qualifying prospects well is something I really needed help with.
Posted by David Peterson on Feb 2nd, 2018.
After years in my industry, I accepted a position that required a significant amount of 'call colding'. Mike Brooks scripts and approaches were instrumental in meeting my annual goal in 6 months. When I reviewed my predecessor's comments in our CRM system, it was evident they had no clue about how to research prospects, customize a message to ensure its value.
I still refer to Mike's guide often.

Mike's sales advice has completely altered the way our team approaches sales. Knowing what to say and how to say it has done wonders to our confidence level when cold calling. Every technique we have put into practice has worked! I can honestly say that now even rejection doesn't affect morale as it once did because we now look at it as simply weeding out unqualified leads so we can move on to the future clients who want and need our service. I highly recommend Mike's Sales Training. The book of scripts and audio training MP3s are amazing. Two thumbs up!

Thanks to Mr. Mike Brooks I have become a well rounded salesman. Objections always left me struggling for words.

Mike hits the nail on the head with what sales people really want. It's nice to know theories and high level ideas, but at the end of the day sales people just want to know what to say. Mike's approach is geared toward telling salespeople EXACTLY what to say on phone calls.
If part of your job involves cold call prospecting, I would recommend working with Mike and start improving immediately.

This new book of phone scripts is packed with current, non-salesy scripts that will instantly elevate any inside sales team’s performance and ratio of closed deals. Simply the best scripts from the best inside sales trainer working today.

I've read a lot of books on "phone scripts" and selling over the phone and none come close to the real world examples and language as this one. I was immediately able to use these scripts to get past gatekeepers and overcome objections.
Simply the best if what you're looking for are solid, "real" scripts on what to say to make more money selling over the phone.
