IBM Partner Appointment Setting Campaign Brief: “Virtual Introduction” 2011
Did you know that it requires 5-15 phone calls to eventually find and talk live with a new prospect?
When salespeople are focused on quarter-to-quarter revenue they are missing the most important step of the sales process, the process of building a funnel. Very quickly salespeople will lose focus and get too busy to canvass. Ideally you want your salespeople to schedule face-to-face meetings with new prospects but realistically this won’t happen without a concentrated and focused effort on cold calling. The best way to find new prospects is still the telephone.
We specialize in finding the hard-to-find prospect that is rarely in their office. You know how busy these people can be and they are always in a meeting and have gate-keepers. Virtual Sales Force uses highly skilled telesales professionals to first find the “right” people in the organization, then continue to call until we have spoken live and set an initial phone conversation for you to meet them virtually. These “virtual-appointments” are ideal for finding prospects early, while they are testing the waters, before they have made a decision. These prospects have been pre-qualified by our callers and have expressed an interest or need in your product area. Prospects are primed and receptive to a telephone introductory discussion to further understand your offering. Sure beats cold calling..
Our call centers have the latest in technology. Complete notes are captured, customers are provide transparent access to the campaign via an internet portal. We have subscriptions to Jigsaw, Harte Hanks and other prospecting databases. Each appointment is recorded for training purposes but can also be reviewed just before making the actual prospect call and are available 24×7 from our FTP site. The call centers have a combined history of over 30 years of tele-sales experience.
