We see ourselves as a part of our clients' marketing team. Understanding the client and their company from the outset is key and what they want and need to achieve from a telemarketing campaign.
We don’t tie into long term contracts, always starting with a trial to review success, objections and what has or hasn’t worked well and then the client decides if & how they want to move forward – using Link for regular monthly telemarketing, seasonal telemarketing or adhoc campaigns as and when needed.
We have worked across a huge variety of sectors both private and public sector. Basically, any company that has B2B customers and is looking to grow is a potential client of Link Telemarketing! We have also worked from clients CRM systems if that is what is required and have even seconded staff into local clients’ offices to work.
One of our mottos is quality over quantity and sets the premise for most campaigns. It’s about building rapport and relationships with prospects rather than just focusing on pushing for an outcome that ends up going nowhere.
We are not a scripted call centre environment, we work closely with the client to understand the approach they want and need, and devise a guideline approach and ensure we have knowledgeable, natural and ‘human’ conversations with prospects.
