Q. Remind me why I am looking to outsource the telemarketing?

Telemarketing is proven to be one of the most important components in sales. If you have ever tried to run a telemarketing team in-house and there are periods whereby the team is not running efficiently, the entire sales process becomes affected. As a result, the flow of leads ultimately dries-up; you and your sales team become impatient and you have no choice but to turn existing staff into glorified telemarketers.
Your highly trained sales team should be devoting their time to working with prospects that are already qualified and have displayed interest in your product. The Pipeline Marketing Group has their own highly trained team that find these prospects and funnel them to you and your team.
Outsourced telemarketing activity does all your dirty work. By outsourcing you ensure lower personnel costs, rediscover management time and increase workplace productivity. You also lose the headache of having to run your own team of telemarketers all day, every day.
