I’ve been wondering this for the past few days, Is sales more important than reputation? I mean I know Sales is important but does companies have to ruin its reputation just by getting a sale?
By the way, what I meant by ruining its reputation is by convincing prospects in a way that no one wants to, through spamming and irritating cold-calling. You wouldn’t want prospect say that your company is just like the rest, Annoying and useless when it comes to providing services and product usage.
“But if we didn’t do this sort of thing, then we won’t have a sale!” questions in your head after reading the second paragraph. I understand your concern, but as a prospect way back, I really hate companies calling me and spamming me messages that aren’t really useful to us. And when we try to get in touch with this kind of companies, we are treated like not family, but like a big bag of money, which isn’t an eye catcher for us.
A company’s reputation alone can get you a sale, if your review is something that a prospect can appreciate then, there you go, you have yourself a lead. Marketing is all about the money, right? Wrong, it’s all about building an empire out of small businesses who trusted and appreciate your way of running a business.
You might think for a second that it small businesses should be forced to do your bidding, even though you need them as much as they need you. This is one aspect that a company should change. Every business plays a role in one company, Remember that.
Sales are important, but reputation builds Company’s character, and if you think all about sale, sales, sales, then you better back up and think “Does this require me to go overboard?”

Getting your telemarketing campaign to an overseas company can be a great way to save money. However, there are several things to consider before choosing an international telemarketing firm. Before you start your quest for cutting costs and lowering overhead, read these six
Interview prospective telemarketing centers online. Sometimes chatting online with a free service like Skype is actually easier than asking questions about the telemarketing firm service over the phone. This also makes it easier to negotiate prices. Skype also allows you to collect information and keep notes so you can research and reflect on the information given to you by overseas companies.
Do not choose a company based on looks. More often than not, if a company’s Web site features a picture of a Trump Towers-like building claiming to be their corporate headquarters, it is an effort to sell you on their legitimacy. The truth is that the majority of small- to medium-sized telemarketing facilities in India that turn out great products are not housed in elaborate offices.
Solid references trump bells and whistles. Ask for a minimum of two U.S. references. If the company can’t come up with at least two happy customers in the past year, your telemarketing center could be made up of one hungry entrepreneur with an IP phone. One of the more common excuses from vendors that can’t provide a reference is that they promise clients strict confidentiality; consider this a red flag.
Fight hard for a test campaign. Ideally, contract telemarketing companies to test-dial your campaign for at least 24 hours and determine if they can get good reporting back to you. If they can’t provide reporting, it won’t matter how great they are on the phone–the telemarketing campaign won’t work.
Avoid the big players in India unless you are willing to pay a higher price. In any country, huge telemarketing centers have huge overhead and high prices. Large centers in India are getting close to the price of a U.S. call center, which minimizes the upside of taking the campaign overseas. The bigger the center and the more populated the city, the more you’re going to pay for services.
Small call centers can be a good thing. Keep in mind that along with lower rate from a center in the Indian countryside, their labor pool and experience level may also be much smaller than their big-city counterparts. However, if your telemarketing campaign needs are basic, small shops in small cities can be a great place to test things out.
When you find a good relationship with a firm, work hard to keep it. Churn is a big part of the telemarketing business and if you find a vendor you trust, you will save a lot of headaches and heartaches. Long term relationships with telemarketing companies are the key to success.

Although it’s always possible to just pick up the phone and start dialing, successful appointment setting requires more than just making blind calls. B2B prospects aren’t just waiting for the next business opportunity to give them a call. They’re searching on the internet, asking advice from personal connections, relying on their own networks etc. The great thing about 121 Direct Marketing is that we don’t entirely depend on the phone either. We pair up telemarketing with effective e-mail marketing strategies to reach wider audiences and strengthen our communications with your prospects. But most importantly, we do it to capture both offline and online opportunities.
Our appointment setting process is composed of 5 basic steps:
1. COLD CALLING and E-MAIL MARKETING
Cold calling is the marketing strategy we use to generate qualified sales leads and set business appointments. Before the cold call, we design the best e-mails before blasting them to the potential clients listed in our privacy-compliant database.* Our expert callers do this to help get the foot in the door and make for easier follow-up calls in case they’re interested. At the same time, it’s also a first step to increasing brand awareness. After the basics of establishing rapport, introducing ourselves, saying who we represent (meaning you), everything is geared towards building trust. We make no attempt to sell since we’re still just getting started. Our goal is to get the prospects talking and set the mood for a sales presentation.
The following are just some of the techniques employed in our successful cold-calling campaigns:
We make all preparations so that calls are handled properly, from formulating call scripts to choosing the right calling agents. Only send well-designed, content-wise emails are used while adhering to data protection legislation and anti-spam guidelines.
Since different verticals have different requirements, we fine-tune our services according to our clients’ needs.
c. Communication Skills
We maintain firm firm speech and a neutral accent to emphasize credibility. All information obtained from the initial call is carefully recorded and kept for follow-ups and as additional reference once the appointment has been set,
2. SETTING THE APPOINTMENT
Once the line of communication is established, our appointment setters ask qualifying questions to validate the prospect and measure their interest in the services offered. If a prospect expressed interest by replying to our emails, we still use the phone to confirm the quality and validity of the lead. This way, we identify qualified leads that are then promptly scheduled for appointment with one of your sales representatives. This is how you’ll know that your appointments have been made with real, live interaction to preserve the high-quality of generated sales leads.
3. QUALITY ASSESSMENT/LEAD VERIFICATION
Our Quality Assurance Analysts carefully verify each lead that was generated from prospect engagement. Business leads that do not measure up to quality assessment standards are set aside for follow-up calls until they’re really ready.
4. PIPELINE CRM UPDATE
Once these business leads are verified, they are uploaded to our online portal, the PipelineCRM. You can access and use PipelineCRM to keep track of the entire lead generation and appointment setting process. In addition, you can download real-time reports on the status of each lead or listen to the recording of each call we make.
5. APPOINTMENT CONFIRMATION
Our appointment setters make a confirmation call to the prospect a day before the appointment to confirm and remind them of the upcoming sales meeting.
