Why Outbound Telemarketing Services Are More Relevant than Ever

Jamie Sharp

In a modern world of e-mail, texting, instant messaging, and an abundance of advertising opportunities available on the internet, TV, and radio - displayed prominently at just about every public place you can imagine - it can be easy to overlook the value of outbound telemarketing services.

But developing new, qualified leads has never been so difficult to manage completely in-house. And this is causing a domino effect that's impacting the rest of your sales process.

For example, your closers may be getting stronger at what they do by the day, but because they're being tasked (too often) to open the doors in addition to closing them, they're skills are not being utilized to their fullest potential.

If you’re on a sales prospecting call and things are going well, often times the temptation is to try for the sale right then and there.  Let’s face it; getting the sale on the first call isn’t very likely. It’s pure magic when it happens, but it doesn’t happen all that often. Instead, set an internal goal of appointment setting, not closing. It’s a much more attainable goal, and getting your prospects to sign on the line which is dotted has a higher likelihood of success in person.
