To send a message, go to your Calls > Click on the call > Click "Send a Message" > Type your message in the Inbox > Hit "Send".
3.Break the ice, but know when to move on
It's good to start off with some small talk to break the ice. Get comfortable, but move on as quickly as naturally possible to the meaty part of the conversation. Remember, time is money.
4.Prioritize your questions
Ask the more important questions first and make sure they're fully addressed before moving on to the lesser important ones.
