Industry leaders have long recognized the value of using their customer service call centers to generate new sales through existing customer relationships. According to research by Best Practices, LLC this blended service-to-sales technique among call centers has been further encouraged in the last few years by many environmental factors including:
Economic Downturn: Call centers accelerated their service-to-sales evolution because the difficult economy choked growth on other fronts; companies seek to grow existing customer relationships to offset the decline.
Regulatory Changes: Many industries that were once dependent upon outbound telemarketing are beginning to shift toa service to sales focus because programs like the “National Do Not Call Registry” promise to dampen their hopes of future outbound telemarketing sales.
Cost-Efficient Sales Expansion: Many industries are turning away from the dot com era of “grab every customer within reach” and returning to the philosophy that it is cheaper to sell additional products to existing customers than it is to acquire brand new customers.
