Local Presence Dialing
If you’re feeling frustrated by low answer rates, lost sales, and call blocks, you’re not alone. Inside sales teams are struggling to meet quotas, thanks to the ever-growing problem of telemarketers, scams, and shady deals from both domestic and off-shore operations. The solution? Local presence dialing. Local presence dialing addresses the biggest barriers to inside sales, such as how do sales teams increase answer rates without the high cost and hassle of renting area-specific numbers and what’s an effective alternative to managing regional calling agents.
**The Basics about **Local Presence Dialing
Local presence dialing provides sales teams with a straightforward, user-friendly sales tool that eliminates the high cost and labor-intensive process involved with traditional local calling techniques. With a local presence dialer, any area code can become your local area code - automatically. Here’s how a local presence dialer works. Let’s say your operation is headquartered in Orlando, Florida, giving you easy access to prospects in the 407 and 321 area codes. But what happens when you want to reach customers in Texas, Oregon, or Ohio? You can either use a toll-free number with a 800, 844, 855, 866, 877, or 888 prefix and accept the fact that your answer rates will take a beating, or call from your own local Orlando area - and instantly let your prospect know that you’re calling from out of state. In addition, let’s say you wanted to start selling to UK and Australia customers, with local presence, your team would automatically appear as a local UK and Australian number to your prospects. Thanks to the development of local presence technology, your sales team can now achieve all the perks that come with a local phone prefix without the costs and hassles involved with actually purchasing hundreds of local numbers. When making sales calls using the Kixie PowerCall dialer, simply activate the local presence option - this automatically generates a local number that your prospect sees on their call display, instantly increasing the credibility of your sales teams. Local presence dialing combined with dynamic callback routing - a feature that instantly connects inbound callers with the same agent who initiated contact with the caller, provides a seamless, creditable sales communication stream that builds trust and credibility.
Benefits of Local Presence Dialing
The benefits of local presence dialing are clear, measurable, and immediate. Prospects are far more likely to answer calls from a local number than calls from a toll-free/out of state/out of country number, providing your sales team with access to a greater number of connections. Simply put, local presence dialing is the most cost-effective, productive, and hassle-free way to boost your conversion rates. It lets inside sales teams establish a local, trusted presence anywhere by effectively overcoming the ‘red flags’ associated with both toll-free and out-of-area calling. While using a local presence dialer won’t actually sell your products or services for you (yes, your sales teams still need to ‘seal the deal’) it can instantly give a positive first impression to your prospects - before they ever answer the phone.
