We were lucky to have telemarketing expert Charlotte Greeman on today’s #Marcheshour. She fields questions about different aspects of telemarketing. The questions put to Ms Greenman ranged from cold calling to other ways of generating leads other than telemarketing. During the same #MarchesHour, she gave useful tips on many of the most effective lead generation techniques.
Being #Marcheshour, most of the questions were from businesses and charities from Shropshire and Herefordshire. Here are some of the questions put to Charlotte Greenman and here response to the questions:
Question from @ShelleyHoltLtd
Hi Charlotte, lead generation for us is through social media and networking what else could we try?
Answer from @_telemarketing_> Hi @ShelleyHoltLtd Telemarketing works well plus blogs/email to give hints/tips to show your expertise.
Question from @Temi_Odurinde>
Should charities cold call potential donors?
Answer from @_telemarketing > Yes I think charities should #coldcall It’s cheap and it’s very effective to speak to a lot of people…politely!
@TidesEvents> charities cold calling has been controversial lately.
@_telemarketing_> Many callers miss opportunities to build relationships. Focusing on selling rather than building relationships
