It’s interesting that on many of the sales inquiries, we get from computer services provides, we are asked if the fact that we are in Colorado and they are in Kalamazoo would be a problem. Our IT telemarketing program can be done any where in the United States and Canada right now and we are expanding to other countries next year.
This raises another question which we are not always asked, but what effect does calling from a long distance number have on your technology telemarketing efforts? Well in some areas calling from a long distance number has little effect. However, other areas it could be the death knell of IT lead generation because the gatekeeper will automatic think that a long distance number is probably a telemarketing call and screen it a lot harder. We have solved this problem, when it pops up, by arranging to have our outbound callers to project the right area code they are calling on caller ID.
The next problem that can usually crop up is concerns about accents or the colloquialism people might have in other areas in the country like New York or another country like Canada. Realistically we have never really had that problem except we might have concerns in the French speaking parts of Canada. However, in the majority of the US and Canada this is not a problem. We do have people working with us from all over the US and recently a new worker in Canada.
