Don't know what to say when calling a new contact? Here's a script you can use to get started.
"Hi Mr. Johnson. It's Jackie Alvarez from Jackie's Catering. Is this a good time to talk? Great. I wanted to follow-up on our conversation about catering your holiday office party. Is there anything I can do to help you make the best decision? I have menus and cost breakdowns I'd be happy to send you."
Ask when you can call back. If you need to leave a voice mail message, clearly state the purpose of your call and leave your contact information. You can also leave your E-mail address so they can E-mail you back at their convenience.
