Information about your product and the solution it offers is rendered which aims at creating a basis to form an interest which enables you to move forward.

This could minimize the chances of them hanging up on you without having listened to what you have to say instead of reciting the whole script, you can let the client take the lead and give you cues. Instead of answering all cues, you can ask them to set an appointment to discuss all these further.

Objections usually occur thus its important t know how to handle them. Some objections can be met with asking them to set an appointment. For example if they say they do not have the time to listen, you can respond with, “That is why you need to take an appointment with us.”

After accepting an appointment you can send them a confirmation email reminding them of the appointment date. In case they decline to make one, you can ask for the reasons behind this to know how to assist future clients.
