A sales call script can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
Used well, it’s your guiding light to navigate a conversation.
But abuse it and you become a telemarketing robot that sweats when forced to go off-script.

It’s the best way to make sure you hit the right points during your call. (Keep reading for sales call script templates examples to copy/paste) Remember, your goal isn’t to pitch someone on the spot; it’s to get them to commit to a meeting.
Next: Choose the right time.
