As an IT firm, having the best and most up-to-date software is a must. Being more advanced than your competitors is a huge edge for you. Being more advanced means that you can provide better service to clients. Of course, people want the best. So when you’re the best, start expecting to gain a lot of B2B sales. But even if you’re offering a really great piece of technology to other companies, it’s useless if you can’t even get to contact  them. Getting past such an obstacle should be one of any IT firm’s top priorities. Two such ways to help you get past it are:
1.    Lead Generation
2.    B2B Appointment Setting
Lead Generation helps any IT firm by opening up their market window. This allows them to possess an even greater number of contacts in a wide array of places. With such information on-hand, their target market can expand by two-fold and allow them more chances at making successful sales. Leads, however, aren’t always accurate. And sometimes, it may be costly to purchase them. However, there are lead generation companies that offer different types of services to clients who need them. One of these services is pay per lead, a better and cost effective way to buy leads. By allowing clients to pay for a set number of leads, it helps cut back on spending. But before any deal like this can go down, you need to make sure you know who you’re dealing with. For all we know, you could be dealing with a fake company trying to sell you fake leads. It’s very important to do some research on who you want to be purchasing leads from.
Pay per lead is the way to go. You can even purchase them by target industry, saving you valuable time. Another great thing about pay per lead is that you don’t even need to be in contract with a telemarketing company to make use of them. They’re perfectly good on their own. You can have your own salespeople do the calls for you. With all that said, doesn’t pay per lead sound like a good option to pick?
Let’s move on to B2B appointment setting. This is usually done with the aid of a telemarketing call center. Through this method, telemarketers call various companies to see if they might be interested in doing business with an IT firm. The great thing about this is that you’ll no longer have to spend time visiting different companies to make your offer, you can have your telemarketers do it for you. They also pre-qualify your prospect, meaning that they make sure that the prospect meets your sales standards. Aside from that, this method allows you direct contact with the respective company’s decision maker. Thanks to this, you’ll be spending more time talking to interested prospects and closing deals.
As separate methods, both are effective. But together, they are even better. And by throwing a telemarketing company into the mix, you can effectively increase your sales. Pay per lead, as mentioned above, helps you gain information about possible prospects. B2B appointment setting functions on leads. When given good leads, a telemarketer can do his job well and get you those appointments. With each appointment comes a probable sale.
