Marketing Lead Management – How to Leverage an Answering Service for Marketing Campaigns

Excellent marketing campaigns result from research, dedication, and a true understanding of a business’s relationship with its audience. However, the fruits of your labor can quickly disappear if your staff cannot keep up with calls, properly screen prospects and clients, or follow up promptly. Part of any good marketing campaign or year-round marketing effort is having a strategy in place to properly handle all of the leads (phone calls) that result from your campaign. Working with a professional answering service company to be sure that you don’t miss any of those calls can make the difference between gaining sales or losing sales.

How can an answering service maximize your marketing campaign?

As your company grows, so will your call volume. As your call volume increases, your ability to turn calls into new customers can become more challenging. Organizing calls based on importance requires a great deal of time and attention dedicated to lead management. A professional answering service is highly experienced in handling an increase in call volume from marketing campaigns whether they are running for a limited time or running indefinitely. An answering service will also know how to prioritize your needs and help you get to the best leads first, giving you an incredible advantage over your competition.

Wouldn’t hiring more staff be cheaper than hiring an answering service?

Hiring an answering service is much more cost-efficient than hiring employees for a few reasons. If you decide to hire new employees to handle your new business, you will have to dedicate time and resources to the hiring and training process. You will also have to offer a salary, benefits, and paid time off. By hiring an answering service, you do not have to spend extra time and money on any of those things. Our experts have years of customer service experience and come ready to work and improve your lead management. Additionally, when you hire employees, you make them a permanent part of your team, even if you do not always need their assistance. By hiring an answering service, you can scale these services up or down, depending on your needs. The best call answering services are designed to run as a seamless part of your marketing operation as you need assistance. Your live operator team can work 365/24/7 and is fully trained per your specifications for call handling and call routing.

Is hiring an answering service worth it?

What are other benefits to working with an answering service?

This sophisticated equipment works in combination with our service’s quality assurance programs, procedures, and implementation. In addition to offering technology that assists with answering and organizing calls, the right answering service can provide you with the analytics that are particularly important to you in a concentrated marketing effort – or even in your day-to-day efforts. From these, you receive key insights into your customer service operations and sales activities. Your marketing campaigns work hard to deliver the sales results your business needs.
