Call Centers. The Evergreen Business Solution

Resurgence of the Call Center Industry

Living life at least two meters apart amidst the COVID-19 induced paranoia and lockdowns has affected our lives in a drastic manner. Our ways of going about our daily routines have completely changed, requiring us to go either in a completely new direction or back to basics in terms of leading their daily lives.

Business market has had to change its operational tactics radically, moving most of the operations to the cloud space in order to ensure not only safety, but efficiency as well. Increase in the use of Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts and other online meeting tools is proof that, in most cases, remote work is more efficient and just as effective as working in close proximity.

Recent research figures also highlight that – in the interest of saving precious time, miles and energy, and staying safe – people have begun relying on call center based services once again. Reports suggest that the reliance on call centers has increased by a whopping 50% ever since the beginning of COVID-19.

Here are some reasons why people have started to rely more on call center services as of late:

  • It’s Quicker – We could all be doing a lot of other productive activities with our time rather going out to the market in search of a particular product or service. With that said, you can easily procure any product or service by making a call to the relevant facilitator, and save a lot of time for some other valuable activity.
  • It’s Cheaper – No matter how idealistic our thinking gets, it cannot be denied that money is precious. You can save a lot of money by staying at home and calling a product or service provider to hook you up, instead of traveling all the way to the market and spending valuable time, energy, and money.
  • It’s Easier – In a world of modern technology and business tactics, convenience is the name of the game. Call centers services deliver the products and service to you as you remain comfortable and unbothered in your home.
  • It’s Safer – The most pertinent concern for everyone these days is safety. The widespread pandemic has prompted everyone to remain extra cautious and avoid stepping out unless it is absolutely necessary. The call center services allow people to leverage such preventive measures as they can now procure any product or service while remaining safe at their homes.
  • It’s More Practical – Granted that there are some aspects of life that we’d rather enjoy out in the open such as watching a movie at a theatre or going to a hotel, but as long as the pandemic is around, whatever can be done from home, should be done from home. This saves you valuable money, energy, time and keeps you safe from an uncertain world. Call centers practically have a huge role in terms of encouraging the safety and convenience of people, which is why they have begun garnering more popularity once again and are only going to get more in demand as the time goes on.

Tips for call center agents to soften up difficult customers

4 Ways for Call Center Agents to Deal With Tough Customers

More often than not, the call center agents will come across customers who might not have been having the best day. For a call center agent to perform their best, they need to acknowledge this reality and be ready for a customer with a bad temper on the other end. There could be any number of reasons as to why that customer wouldn’t want to talk to you, which is why it is up to you – the call center agent – to put the customer at ease through your professionalism and effective communication skills.

However, there is no “singular course” to getting out of a sticky situation. There is a particular set of skills that you need to have in your arsenal in order to tip the odds in your favor while communicating with a tough customer. Here are 5 tips for call centers to soften up difficult customers:

  • Be Sociable:

Remember! A smile goes a long way. Although the customer won’t be able to see it, they’d certainly be able to sense that you are a sociable person. By giving them the sense that you’re actually happy to help them out, you can garner the respect and attention of your customer enough that they’d be willing to hear you out even if they didn’t want to initially.

  • Be Informed:

It’s been said before but it bears repeating that nothing turns off a customer more than a call center agent who doesn’t even know about the company’s product/service. In order to grab the attention of your customer, you need to be well-informed about the service/product that your company is offering. This way, the customer shall receive the impression that you can actually offer a solution to their problem, and will therefore be willing to engage with you further.

  • Be Flexible:

Note that a prospect is out looking for a solution to his/her problems. So in order for you to have the undivided attention of your customers, you need to tell them what you can do instead of what you can’t do. For example, when asked about a certain option by the customer, instead of responding by saying, “I can’t provide you ‘abc’ offer” you can say “I can arrange the ‘xyz’ offer for you instead”. By changing your narrative in such a way and giving them a choice for the next finest proposition, you can get a customer to listen to your offer without getting agitated.

  • Be Adaptive:

Again, it might be redundant, but it is the foremost important attribute to have. Having a monotone voice or communicating like a robot is one of the worst ways of putting a customer off. To avoid doing so, you need to make sure that you communicate in a considerate and professional manner with the customers, in order to not lose the interest of your customer in your product.

And there you have it! These are some of the tips for the call center agents to deal with the difficult customers. If you follow these steps, you are guaranteed to achieve a significant degree of improvement in your success rate. Good luck!

Employee Retention

A Perfect Recipe for Employee Retention

Sales and marketing is the backbone of a business. Especially in a marketing industry, companies put their faith into their call centers to be their voice and project the company image such that a solid customer base is created as a result. However, the competition in the telemarketing industry is growing fiercer each day, and in order for any organization to retain its sales team, the organization must learn the perfect recipe to keep a good call center agent from jumping ship and becoming an asset to a rival call center. J Telemarketing is one of the firms that boasts a great track record of ensuring loyalty of their valued work force. With that said, following are some of the tips for a call center to retain their valued workforce:

  • Acknowledgement

The agents have to bear through a lot of stern reaction from the customers, unintended failure and other forms of stress in order to approach the goals set by the company. Therefore, it is among a company’s paramount responsibilities to acknowledge an agent’s hard work by offering them the care and compensation that they rightfully deserve. This will not only ensure an employee’s loyalty to the firm, but would also allow the employee to deliver the best performance.

  • Empowerment

It is important to maintain certain standards at a workplace, but it is also important for an organization to allow its employees to take the initiative. While interacting with a customer, a call center agent can be faced with a curve ball. In that case, in order for the agent to thrive, he must be given enough liberty by the organization to be creative and extract the best results.

  • Transparency

Honesty goes a long way when it comes to employee retention. With that said, any organization that is completely transparent with its workforce in terms of policies and parameters of excellence. This will enable the employee to be loyal to the organization and strive harder to become a better performer to meet the set parameters for excellence.

  • Interactive Atmosphere

Apart from the maintenance of basic organizational decorum, a company should allow an interactive atmosphere at the workplace. Telemarketing firms should give the employees enough liberty to interact with one another, so as to remain lively as well as for the entire team to develop a sense of comradery with one other.

  • Realistic and Definitive Targets

The team is likely to perform much effectively if the targets seem clear and within reach. It offers agents a sense of confidence which results in better performance and a sense of positive affiliation with the firm. Lofty targets and big numbers are likely to result in lethargy or intimidation on the agent’s part, hence resulting in a diminished output and loyalty.

  • Lateral communication model

It is absolutely paramount for the upper management to remain in touch with the frontline workers, which in our case, are the call center agents. There are certain real time facts that only the agents have in their knowledge. Such feedback can be critical to make strategic changes in the interest of ensuring top results and an employee’s faith in the company.

And there you have it! The aforementioned points make for a perfect recipe for employee retention at a call center. Any organization that rewards the hard work of its employees with the aforementioned practices, is an organization that excels in the long run.

What Makes a Good Telemarketer

What Makes a Good Telemarketer: 5 Important Characteristics

There are dozens of call centers in Rawalpindi and Islamabad that are currently working on various projects and have hundreds of sales executives and customer service representatives onboard. J Telemarketing is among the best telemarketing companies in the twin city region that believes in the idea of having the best team of telemarketers on board, so as to make the customers at home while shopping for desired product and/or services and to add value to the company’s operations. Here at J Telemarketing, we try our best to look for and to instill the following qualities:

  • Communication Skills:

The characteristic of foremost importance is the ability to communicate. This not only includes having a strong grip over the language, but also being able to communicate in a favorable fashion with the customer. The better you communicate, the more likely the person is likely to stick around and listen to what you have to offer.

  • Listening Skills:

When it comes to being a good customer services representative, listening to a customer is just as important, if not more important than communication skills. To understand this point, one must understand the difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is just the capability to sense sound while listening entails the capability of observing the details within the sound-bites. In case of a telemarketer, the capability of listening for a customer’s actual need for the product and services is of paramount importance in order for the telemarketer to respond to the customer’s needs in a favorable fashion.

  • Adaptability:

Being a telemarketer, you must be prepared for a number of unanticipated challenges that can be thrown your way mid-conversation. A good telemarketer should be able to adapt to any unforeseen predicament and address the situation accordingly in a favorable fashion as per the need of the moment.

  • Product Knowledge:

You cannot even think about being a good telemarketer without having complete knowledge of your own product. The more you can communicate with your customer about your product with honesty, the more likely the customer is likely to be convinced and make a deal with you. Any kind of misinformation or insufficiency thereof, may result in severe consequences for you and your company.

  • Human Element

Amidst accomplishing the aforementioned elements, people tend to forget the importance of maintaining an actual human conversation. The person on the other end of the telephone cannot see your body language or your facial expressions, but you must have an empathetic tone towards the customer in order to make him feel comfortable as well develop a degree of respect and regard for you as a person.

In order for a telemarketing firm to stand out from the competition, the team of people communicating with the potential customers should have the ability to engage the customer such that s/he is convinced that both your company and the product/service is the best in the market.
