What to Talk About on the Phone
Do you get nervous while talking on the phone as you have nothing to talk
about? By talking on the phone, you can get a golden
chance to know about a person. You can ask confidently
about everything as you are behind the scene. Here
are some things I am going to share in this post
to talk about.
Things You can Talk about on the Phone
For some people, talking on the phone is not an easy thing. Do not worry
about taking future calls as now you will have
many things to talk about on the phone.
You can make a list of telephonic topics. Make a list on a note card. Or
make a list of topics to talk about on your computer
on the notepad. Only mention the topics on which
you can talk about on the list. Also, while talking
on the phone, avoid long pauses. The long empty
pauses while talking will convey a negative message.
List of Telephonic Topics
When you are ready and start preparing your list of telephonic topics,
here are a few things you must keep in your mind
Always write the topics in explained and proper form. Avoid using shorthand
as it may be difficult to understand sometimes.
List the exact topic to talk about.
Make a generic list of telephonic topics instead of writing it in the form
of a script as you have to have a flowing telephonic
conversation not reading a script.
Do not make it a rule. You may change the order of topics to talk about
if it is required for making the conversation
Now, after you have these three points in your mind, start making your
own list of telephonic topics.
You must make your own list of telephonic topics. Here is a simple sample
for you for guidance.
Talk about the interests of the other person
Talk about the movies you like
Discuss some popular TV shows
Ask about favorite places to visit
Ask about the desired job
You may ask about goals
Talk about the favorite music
Discuss your favorite foods
Ask about personal likes
Discuss future dreams
Keep the flowing conversation what/if question
When to Make a Telephonic Call
If you really like someone and you also have the contact number of the
person, do not wait now. It is not the time to
hesitate. Just make a call and say hello. If the
person gave his number to you, it means he is interested
in talking to you on the phone.
This is the world of internet. If you do not have the contact number of
the personal, get her social media contacts and
invite the person to make a call.
Always Be Honest and Open!
Always be honest. If you only make a call to someone to hear his/her voice,
let the person know. Being honest and open will
bring a new venue for you. If you have trouble
talking on the phone, try to be a good listener
at least, a thing the other person will like for
Keep Purpose in Your Mind
With a list of telephonic topics, you will have a topic and a purpose to
talk to the person and you will not have to think
more now that what to say to the person after making
a call. Keep a topic in your mind like discussing
a new movie and make a phone call now. Before making
a call, keep the purpose of your call in your mind
and talk about accordingly.
