Outbound Calling: The Basics

Outbound calling is originally a call center service that conducts outgoing calls for a business. Basically, agents representing a certain company reach out to its customers and prospects. They do this to either sell products and services or to follow-up on current clients. Most enterprises have a mix of inbound and outbound calling needs where they have a support team in place to help customers on call.

Now, a strong outbound calling strategy can greatly affect your sales. This is because such a service requires employees to call potential customers and tell them about the business. Thus, increasing brand awareness and visibility. And, it enables reps to take care of existing clients, increasing customer retention rates. Both of which are highly beneficial.

With advancements in technology and digital security, it is easier than ever to quickly purchase a product or service online. E-commerce stores offering physical products and items usually have a packaging and delivery service that brings the purchased item to your door with just the click of a button. And this is not limited to local shopping online. E-commerce makes it possible to shop for services and products from across the globe. Additionally, there are platforms that enable customers (not businesses) to sell their stuff as well. Some common e-commerce businesses are:

  • Stores selling physical goods with delivery or in-store pick-up or order fulfillment (examples: Amazon, Walmart)
  • Service-based: Services sold and bought online from providers such as online consultants, freelancers (examples: people selling services on Fiverr.com)
  • Digital products or “e-goods” (examples: Coursera for online courses, Shutterstock for stock photos, Kindle)

Additional Communication Tools

Global Call Forwarding provides call center solutions to assist you in handling inbound and outbound calls efficiently. You can enhance caller experience by having incoming calls directed to different office locations or during specific times of the day. And you can have callers greeted by an automated voice response (IVR) that takes them through a series of menus.

For outbound calls, you can change your caller ID, override the existing one, to display specific numbers like local ones. This way, when you call international clients, they see a local number and are not charged for international calling. You can also add Call Recording to your Outbound Calling service and record calls for monitoring and quality assurance purposes.
