What’s the best time for marketing calls?

Telemarketing can be an extremely efficient way to increase sales, but it is a method that comes with a whole host of its own, specific challenges. Unlike with things like print ads, generally emails, and even text messages, timing is absolutely crucial. With other techniques, people can come to your content as and when they are looking for it: when they open a newspaper, switch on the TV or the radio, scroll through their Twitter feeds, or check their phones. But when you’re placing a phone call, you have to have some level of confidence that there will be somebody at the other end of the line with the ability, willingness, and time to answer the phone and have a conversation at that moment. Telemarketing also comes with its own laws, and businesses who choose to ignore or flout these regulations put themselves at risk of incurring fines of £500,000 from Ofcom and the Information Commissioner’s Office, telemarketing’s regulating bodies. Make sure you know the telemarketing rules, and avoid fines.

One woman’s quest for a healthy work / life balance and how it could impact you

Everybody in the working world is constantly walking a tight-rope, teetering between leaning too far into their personal life and getting entirely sucked in to your work. Nobody wants to neglect the people and things that they love, but we are also desperate not to sacrifice professional efficiency and performance – in part to even be able to support the people and things we love.

People have different ways of ensuring they are striking this balance in the best way possible. Some carve out particular days on which they shut down all work communication, others have rules about how many extra hours they’ll spend in the office each week, or have morning rituals with their friends or family before dedicating their day to work.

How to set up a free conference call

It’s no surprise so many people want to know how to set up a free conference call. Two trends in business life are converging to raise the conference call to its rightful place upon the throne of communications technology. First there’s the decline of the office. More and more, people are opting for more flexible approaches to work. Many are self-employed or free-lance, and can desk-surf or cafe-hop to their hearts’ content.

Why the North is best for contact centres

Recently published reports from CV-Library have revealed that customer services workers are in the worst paid sector, with the average income falling to 36.8% lower than the average income across the nation. This comes after another drop in the typical pay of a customer services worker, which has gone from £20,831 to £19,992 over the course of just one year. It is certainly not a great financial time to be working in contact centres.
