Basingstoke, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 October 2012
Telesales agencies are one of the best ways for businesses to quickly generate new sales leads and organise appointments. This is why a CNC machining business in Halifax approached Marketing Quotes, as they were looking for a telesales agency that had experience in lead generation and appointment making, to book meetings for the sales director to visit manufacturing companies around the North East of England.
The sales director commented 'we approached Marketing Quotes after seeing an advert from them on TV, we are finding things slow at the moment as many engineering companies are, so being pro-active and getting appointments is the only way forward. We did consider getting a sales person in house, but after recruitment fees, training and management, it is cheaper to outsource it. We were looking for a telesales agency that had experience of working in the engineering sector, and Marketing Quotes came up with the goods.'
Many engineering companies have found that as business gradually moves overseas, there is the need to be more aggressive with marketing and to knock on doors to generate new sales enquiries.
Anne Richards (who works with Marketing Quotes) added 'there are lots of telsales and telemarketing companies in the UK, so there is the need to shop around. Finding an agency that knows your industry is important, but also is their track record of success. Most agencies work on a fixed day rate (which can vary depending on their overheads, their experience and their profit mark up's - so our site is a great way to compare telemarketing prices.'
Since approaching Marketing Quotes, the engineering company has met with 3 telesales agencies, and selected one based in Manchester that both offered a competitive day rate and had experience of doing telemarketing in the engineering industry.
