One of the biggest challenges with outsource telemarketing programs is how to measure performance. It’s not always adequate to measure program performance on a monthly or weekly basis. Sometimes the performance needs to be evaluated daily. If you are serious about making such an assessment, below is an example of a good daily report template for an outbound marketing program. It is essential to measure and track performance from the start of any outsource telemarketing program.
Key reporting metrics for outsource telemarketing
As a general rule, the key outbound outsource telemarketing metrics to measure and report on are:
- Sales per hour (SPH)
- List conversion %: sales divided by finalized records
- List penetration %: finalized records divided by the beginning list size
- Call disposition details: the result of the phone call that tells us what happened. As an example, not interested, sale or wrong number are typical disposition codes.
All of these metrics are important to analyze your program’s overall health and performance. By using a standardized report template, the outbound marketing report is quite useful for both program managers and clients. They each can review it and see how their marketing program is progressing. With such a report, they come to a better position to devise sales strategies and to make decisions for their campaign. Should there be issues with program performance, the report makes it possible to determine at a glance where to start addressing those challenges.
