Telemarketing training is essential for any Telemarketer who wants to be successful.
I believe strongly that every workplace who hires telemarketers should provide great telephone skills training that is relevant to their particular business.
Providing staff with industry related training alone, without making sure that telemarketers have sales skills, listening skills, good communication skills and an excellent telephone technique is a mistake that many make.
Too often I see business owners put an ad in the paper for an experienced Telemarketer, hire the person they feel will do best job, give them a phone and expect to instantly see a result.
They provide no training or structure to their new staff member and then get exasperated with them when they don’t get the desired results. “But they had experience!” is the comment I hear most often in regard to this issue. And I agree that the idea of hiring someone with a vast amount of telemarketing experience does seem sensible.
But unless they have had well trained telemarketing experience in a field that is virtually identical to that of your business, I am sorry to say that their experience may be irrelevant. So whether you are a Telemarketer who needs to sharpen your skills, or a business owner or manager who needs to learn the best ways to train staff….. You’ve come to the right place.
We run Training Workshops for Telemarketers all throughout Australia!!…Click here to see our Call Centre Training page and learn all about what a workshop could do to improve your Telemarketing skills and confidence!!
Telemarketing training provides a solid foundation for your telephone skills. This then enables you to build on that knowledge over time with more and more sales skills and telemarketing training.
The telemarketing call is very often your first or most regular point of contact with your clients.
You want to make sure that you and your business are being represented in a fashion that you are happy with and that will keep your customer happy and coming back to you for years to come.
I have heard it said that a bad experience is talked about 10 times as much as a good experience with a business. Surely that is reason enough to make sure that your clients only have good experiences talking with you and/or your staff! Training can be done internally by the business owner or Telemarketing Manager, by sending your staff along to a training course or by having a consultant like me out to train your staff regularly. Keep in mind though, if you have an external trainer come in, they should have a good grasp on what you do and how you do it so that your staff really gets a lot out of it, rather than generic training that doesn’t specifically apply to them.
Good training must cover Telephone Techniques helping you to know how to best use tone, volume, pacing and pitch.
