Telemarketing Services - Outbound Calling for your Business
An Outbound Call Center, or more commonly referred to as Telemarketing, is a service that specializes in making a large number of calls on your behalf. Telemarketing services provide your business with your own army of telephone representatives who can make thousands of calls on behalf of your company. These calls typically fall into the categories of selling your products or services, generating sales leads, qualifying sales leads, data clean up, market research/surveys, and appointment scheduling. Telemarketing companies can follow scripts created by your business or they may recommend scripts based on their experience in certain markets.
Why Use a Telemarketing Service?
Telemarketing services can offer many advantages, both short term and long term. In many cases, it is a simple case of being easier, quicker and much more cost effective to outsource to a telemarketing service rather than start your own in-house outbound call center group. This allows your business to focus on its core competencies rather than having the added disruption of setting up an additional group within your company. Creating your own in-house telemarketing service requires large up front capital investment in phone lines, office space, furniture, computers, call center software and more. Then there is the additional time and expense of hiring individuals and training them.
Choosing a Telemarketing Service Provider
When choosing a Telemarketing service provider there are a few key factors to consider. Like many other business types, telemarketers come in many shapes and sizes. This means different providers specialize in different areas. Therefore, understanding what your requirements are up front is key. One of your first requirements would be what type of service you require from the Telemarketing provider and how you want to measure its success. This will help you ask the right questions when obtaining price quotes. Another key factor will be the anticipated call volume (number of calls per month). Some providers have a niche in servicing the smaller volume campaign types and some specialize in the larger volume campaign types. Consider any ramping that may be required over time also to make sure the provider has the capabilities to grow with your requirements. Other factors to consider include items such as integration of any software you use with their internal software, any 24/7 requirements, any language requirements, or any other additional requirements considered important to the success of your campaigns.
