Do you guys write scripts and follow it word for word or do you write an outline and follow that.  Or do you wing it and go off memory.  I have been building my book through cold calling for 2 years and was wondering these questions.   Thanks

Are you aware of the Finra rules regarding "scripts"?It should be on your annual compliance questionairre. And you make a statement there, with your signature, penalty of perjury...There are presentations, spiels, and there are scripts. You don't do scripts, scripts are bad, just ask Olde Discount....

Have your compliance team approve scripts before use......
