Telemarketing And Junk Mail -A New Approach

One of the good points about being on the Internet is that you build up a large number of friends all over the Internet. Most of them you will never meet but as you exchange e-mails you really do get to know them. One such person for me is John Fox-Kirk a legal consultant who lives in Leeds.UK The other day John passed on to me an e-mail that he had received from a guy called Andy Rooney who I had never heard of. Andy’s pet hates are telemarketing and junk mail and he sent out an e-mail with his tips on how to deal with these problems. It is obvious that we are kindred spirits so I thought I would pass on some of Andy’s ideas along with a few techniques of my own. One rule I have is never to be rude to whoever is calling. I don’t believe anyone works at a call centre out of choice and many work part time in the evenings to supplement their income. I think you must really need the money to do that so why be rude to the messenger. So you can picture it, you have just sat down and the phone goes, it is between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. so it is a 3 to 1 chance it is going to be sales call. Andy has a very good technique; he just uses 3 little words “Hold on, Please” and he puts the phone down and walks off. He claims this is more effective than just hanging up because it slows the whole system down and...

They have a good voice inflection and come across...

There are many tasks that were once considered a challenge, almost impossible to complete, are now finding people lining up to help companies complete the tasks at hand.

The Internet also eliminates the necessity of multiple phone lines and long distance calling charges. When compared with telemarketing dollar for dollar, paid surveys are far more cost effective and efficient for research and marketing firms to use in order to fulfill their contractual agreements.
