You may wonder why outsourced telemarketing services works brilliantly. Well, this is due to the fact that telemarketing abilities are highly transferable. Any seasoned telemarketer will hit the ground running with only basic training regarding the customer’s product or services. This is because they have already mastered the art and practice of engaging customers.
Unlike before where telemarketing was centered on majorly cold calling customers, more recently, telemarketers focus on warm leads due to the conversion rate realized with warm calls. It is however necessary, in preparedness, that telemarketers get the appropriate training and information about your Company, product and services to enable them deliver confidently, accurate and precise answers to your customers (current and prospective). A good and professional telemarketer is able to give spontaneous responses to customers, thereby building trust and creating relationships. During a call, a pictorial guide and FAQs gathered may be very instrumental. Telemarketers (whether outsourced telemarketers or in-shore) are encouraged to create a human connection with customers and avoid strict scripting.
To ensure that offshore telemarketers remain compliant, you’ll need to inform your telemarketing company about your country’s tele-sales and cold-calling regulations and rules.
