Discovery Call

« Back to Glossary Index

A Discovery Call, also known as a Qualification Call or Introductory Call, is a crucial early-stage interaction in the sales process between a sales representative and a potential customer. The primary purpose of a Discovery Call is to gather essential information about the prospect, their needs, challenges, goals, and pain points. This information helps the salesperson determine whether there is a good fit between the prospect’s needs and the products or services offered by their company.

A successful Discovery Call is a valuable opportunity for both the sales representative and the prospect to evaluate the potential for collaboration. It serves as the initial step in building a customer-focused sales journey and is essential for driving the sales process forward with qualified leads.
