Telemarketing can be very effective in achieving appointments with decision makers regarding Voluntary Benefits. Many companies that provide voluntary benefits, two of the major players being AFLAC and Allstate, depend upon pounding the pavement to get in front of decision makers. However, it is important to consider the value of a salesperson’s time. It is more beneficial to be in front of a decision maker, presenting the value of Voluntary Benefits, than to be knocking on doors and making calls in order to secure that one presentation. Telemarketing can ensure that a salesperson’s time is spent closing the sale instead of pounding the pavement or dialing the phone.
In today’s economy, many companies are seeking ways to offer benefits but are unable to provide traditional medical benefits due to the skyrocketing costs. Companies must be lean in order to be competitive in the marketplace and must retain their top talent – they need to be creative and find ways to offer benefits at no cost to their bottom line. Highly skilled consultative telemarketers are very effective at relaying these benefits and achieving appointments with decision makers.
In addition, companies benefit in tax dollar savings by offering Voluntary Benefits to their employees. It requires an articulate and educated telemarketer to relay this specific benefit to the decision maker. Very often the President or CEO is the decision maker regarding benefits, especially in smaller companies. These decision makers are not receptive to salespeople walking in off the street – they expect their time to be respected and valued. Setting an appointment ahead of time will ensure that they are ready for the meeting and understand the offering.
Outsourcing your telemarketing efforts can help you get in front of more decision makers and generate new business. Voluntary Benefits are not new; however, the value they provide to companies today is far greater than they were years ago. With the high cost of medical insurance and employee overhead, many companies today are choosing to cut back on traditional insurance but, at the same time, are looking to attract high level talent. In order to achieve these goals they must be creative in offering benefits to those individuals. Telemarketing, when done by a highly educated individual who is adept at conversing with Presidents, CEOs and HR Directors, can be very effective at relaying this message and generating interest in those prospects regarding the advantages that Voluntary Benefits provide.
