If you need to make a business call with prospect in Australia you have to take a few important factors into consideration. Let’s assume you’re based somewhere in Europe and there is no option to fly over there. What then?
We want to present 4 steps which, when followed, will provide you with necessary fundaments for your communication process and (hopefully) lead to big deals! Let’s see how quick and simple it is!
#1 Schedule your business call
Keep in mind that you’re in different time zones and set a time that suits both of you. It might be tricky because your workday might be beginning just as they are falling asleep. But you don’t want to make business call during night or force your business partners to do the same. Be as flexible as possible for your mutual benefit.
#2 Send invitations to attendees
Once you’ve got the time right, go to your calendar to send an invite to the call to all attendees. They’ll probably get a notification once you do, but you can also let them know with a text or email to make sure they receive it.
#3 Exchange contact details with others
We’re missing one more important detail – contacts! Before the business call you need to provide your phone number / Skype id / Google Hangout link. Message your contact details and the call details to your Australian contact at least a few days in advance — this way you have time to follow-up and reschedule if they don’t respond.
#4 Let’s make a deal!
You’re done, and ready to have a professional convo with your Australian business partners. Make sure you’re carefully prepared with questions and answers on your side. Moreover, quiet and comfortable environment would be additional advantage.
