Marketing campaign owners gain better visibility to the quality of leads generated by their activities and resulting lead disposition. Marketing managers can also develop campaigns to continue nurturing leads that cannot yet be referred to Sales. Telemarketing agents can capture relevant information to inform leads periodically who are interested but not yet ready to purchase.
This topic provides guidelines for marketing campaign owners. When developing campaigns, marketing managers must consider if telemarketing has a role in following up and qualifying responses. If so, the following campaign and program components must be configured:
Include telemarketing management and agents' insights into the campaign strategy. Also make the subject matter, offer, scheduling and other materials available for followup.
Determine whether targeted contacts who respond to the campaign will be further nurtured by the Marketing Department. Determine whether telemarketing will contact them.
Develop and associate a call script Web form with the campaign. This call script Web form must include qualifying questions specific to the program, as well as demographic contact information for the telemarketing agent to verify during the conversation. For more information, see Associating Call Scripts.
