Teleconferencing as a Sales Tool

Today, almost all types of business use conference calls, or teleconferencing. If you own a business, whether it is large or small, you could help promote your products or services with the help of conference calling.

As you may already know, conference calling allows three or more individuals to participate in a phone conversation. This, of course, can be used to hold meetings with employees. However, it can also be used to make a sales pitch to a potential customer or client.

If you are not convinced by the idea of using conference calling to help improve sales, here are just some of the advantagesof teleconferencing over face-to-face meetings:

Teleconferencing is a cost effective method of meeting

One of the principal reasons to use conference calling is that it allows you to save money. The cost of a teleconferencing service is far smaller than the accumulated cost of travel for yourself and/or your employees.

Make a good impression with your green credentials

As we all know, these days being carbon neutral is very much in vogue. So, if you would like you clients and customers to know how much you care about the planet, explain that conference calling is part of your company’s strategy to reduce its carbon footprint. You may be surprised by how many clients/customers this attracts.

Let your product/service speak for itself

Face-to-face meetings are great, but it can lead to style being valued over substance. If would like your product or service to speak for itself, then conference calling is a wonderful way to ensure that looks and personality do not play too large a role.

Ensure that your time is well spent

If you are preparing for a sales pitch, the more time you have to organize documents and materials the better. However, if you or members of your team have to travel to and from meetings, precious time is being wasted. Teleconferencing, on the other hand, allows your employees to be as productive as possible.

Teleconferencing is a reliable option

We have all experienced the frustration of public transport delays and traffic jams, which threaten to make us late. However, if you are in danger of being late for a business meetings this could have catastrophic affects for your company. By using a conference call service, you will never need to worry about being late for a meeting again.

Of course, these are just some of the benefits of conducting sales calls via teleconferencing, I am sure you can think of many others.  Let us know!
