Outbound telemarketing is not dead

By Megan Hottman, Operations Manager and Brand Evangelist

outbound telemarketing agent It’s A-L-I-V-E (queue creepy music), outbound telemarketing is A-L-I-V-E (end creepy music)! For those who say it is dead, here’s why I am convinced it isn’t and won’t be. It shouldn’t be written off so quickly, as it often times is. Outbound telemarketing is an untapped resource that should be used more. Maybe I’ll be persuasive enough to convince you?

When it comes to sales, I feel like I’ve kind of seen it all. I’ve been an individual contributor, started new segments of business, lead large teams, etc. I’ve worked for smaller organizations, startups and for Fortune 100’s. Across the various roles I’ve held and size of company I’ve been employed with, there have been some universal, err, we’ll call them universal consistencies when it came to sales people and their (our) grumblings.

Indiana Telemarketer Registration Update

By Angela Garfinkel, President

Outbound TelemarketingThe State of Indiana has amended its Telemarketer Registration law as of July 1, 2019. Effectively the amendment to the existing statute removed the numerous exemptions that sellers and telemarketers previously relied on.

Did you know that inbound call centers (and sellers that employ them) that do any type of sale are now required to register in Indiana as a telemarketer? Inbound calls are now covered by the law.

Did you know that telemarketing companies conducting B2B and B2C outbound telemarketing sales calls (and sellers that employ them) must register? B2B outbound telemarketing is now covered by the law.

Did you know that if you employ a telemarketing or call center firm for making outbound telemarketing sales calls or handing inbound sales calls, your company is most likely also required to register as a telemarketer in the state of Indiana?

And speaking of changes to the Indiana law — another key change is a requirement to promptly disclose the sales agent first and last name and the company they work for in the beginning of a sales call (if calling a consumer or business for sales purposes in the state of Indiana). Check your scripts and update them accordingly.

By Julie Kramme, Sales Executive
