Talking sports?

I've observed that when I talk sports with my prospect (considering they're into it), it eases them out and builds a great hook where they get into a happy mindset. They just mellow out and get into the right mindset. Anyone observed it?

Talk sports during calls?

I used this last Friday, just chatting about the NFL draft. Great rapport builder/ice breaker.

Absolutely. Few things get people spewing like sports so it is a great way to build rapport and make friends. Ironically, I have had a lot of success with fans of rival teams. Some friendly ribbing will make you seem like a real human and not a sales robot just there to get something from them.

Yes this appears to be a good strategy. So glad I follow soccer so that I could keep international clients roped in haha
