Sample Spiels when Booking a Flight

Spiels commonly refer to a memorized speech by customer service agents, which they deliver to start a conversation, greet clients and persuade customers. Spiels are usually associated with sales people who often recite a glib talk aimed at introducing or promoting a product and essentially convincing a client to purchase or avail of the product or service.

For instance, “Thank you for calling “Smarter Communications”. This is Joy. How may I help you? Spiels should also reflect the agent’s active listening skills by including phrases that impresses to customer that the company carefully and attentively listens that the needs of the client. For instance, one can include phrases like “If I understand you correctly… and “what you are telling me is…”.

Thank you for calling Smarter Communications. Goodbye.”
