You may already be considering employing the services of a professional telemarketing company, but before that there are a few things you need to do. In order for you to increase the chances of success for your campaign, one thing you should not neglect to do is to discover your buyers’ personas. When it comes to being a business that needs to make money to continue operating, it is a must that you learn about your target market in order to better develop your products and services, as well as to formulate better ways in which to approach your potential customers.
Discovering your buyers’ personas is something which takes time to do. However, investing into it will reward you with crucial data which you can use to your advantage. So before you start availing any telemarketing services for lead generation purposes, you may want to do the following to help you discover some of your buyer personas.
Conduct phone interviews/surveys.
Generating leads during the early stages of your campaign may be beneficial to your cause, however you shouldn’t start doing that when you don’t have the data you need in order to come up with attractive offers. Although, if you already have an outbound call center that is ready to serve you, then you can still make use of their services to perform phone interviews and phone surveys. When it comes to discovering your buyer personas, conducting interviews is one of the best ways to do so. The phone is a good medium to make use of since it doesn’t require you or your interviewee to have to commute to a set location, and it also doesn’t involve that much costs on your part.
Hold face-to-face interviews.
Although phone interviews and surveys are easier to conduct (not to mention you can do them from almost anywhere), you can get much more feedback from a potential customer through a live interview. In business, everything starts with an appointment, and that is why many use B2B appointment setting in order to do prospecting. You too can make use of appointment setting in discovering buyer personas by setting up appointments for interviews with your prospective customers. A face-to-face interview allows for real-time feedback to be given, and also allows you and your interviewees to better interact with each other unlike when you do interviews or surveys through the phone.
Do free-trial runs and beta testing campaigns.
One of the most important things when it comes to getting feedback from your target market and potential customers is to let them experience your products and services for themselves. As such, one way to get the most important data from your potential buyers and clients is to offer free-trials and even hold beta testing campaigns. When you give your potential customers the experience of using or availaing your products and services, then they’ll be able to come up with their own opinions which can help steer you in the right direction. As such, live user experience and interaction is something you should heavily stress an importance on as it can help you determine crucial parts within your product or service that may need improvement.
Once you have all the data you need, you’ll be able to formulate a good approach for your target market. And once that happens, it’s time for you to put your lead generation telemarketing campaign into action! Since you have the information you need, you’ll be able to come up with more attractive offers and thus have more chances of generating leads.
