Technology (IT and Telecoms)

Industry leader in Managed IT Services, Network Infrastructure, and Rapid Mass Wifi Deployment

We were approached by our client who had received mixed results from another IT Telemarketer. With our existing depth of knowledge of their services from our backgrounds in IT, we were able to put together a pilot programme of 20 days to target senior infrastructure personnel in enterprise accounts in order to book appointments for the client's senior Account Directors.

Our client was both surprised and hugely impressed by the difference and improvement in our results considering their previous experiences, and following the success of the pilot, they have gone on to book further campaigns to provide a steady flow of opportunities over the year.

We were engaged on an initial 20 day pilot to contact the decision makers within enterprise level accounts and generate further interest in their solution.

The success of the pilot led to a quick rebook and further ongoing campaigns to continue the growth of the clients UK market.

Market leading distributor in

IT Solutions

Our client is the UK distributor for one of the World's largest specialist Backup and recovery vendors.

As part of the joint marketing strategy 24 I.S. were engaged to provide end user lead generation services into Enterprise level accounts.

Unlike other IT telemarketing companies our client had used in the past 24 I.S.'s specialist understanding of backup and recovery solutions allowed us to understand their technology and message, and convey this to end users and generate opportunities where others couldn't.

The huge success on campaigns has led to an ongoing relationship with 24 I.S. continuing to provide lead generations services.

We now run alternate partner on-boarding / new business campaigns with them on a regular basis.

Their understanding of IT networks meant that we were able to provide high volume lead generation services where we arranged meetings and call backs with IT and Network Managers in a number of different verticals.

Professional Services

Cost Management Consultants and Procurement Specialists

On behalf of our client and their large network of franchisees, we work on an appointment making programme that allows them to focus on attending meetings and processing results, and we do what we do best and get their franchisees in front of the correct audience.

So far, with one client, we have developed the relationship to cover over 35 franchisees and the success rate of the appointments has been very high.

Off the back of this initial campaign, a significant order was secured which led to our client running two further campaigns in quick succession with ourselves. (After two campaigns, their Return on Investment was running at 900%).

We will now be running various campaigns with them moving forward which will include Account Management to upsell additional products and services, as well as continuing to generate new business opportunities for them.

As a start-up business, our client approached us with their idea to use our sales resource to help them approach their target market of the legal sector, and in particular vendor conveyancers. We were used to initially pitch the service to home conveyances, and to then email product information to potential clients.

Once we had initial conversations, we then booked 'over the phone' web demonstrations for our client to run through the service with interested parties.

This has proved to be a successful methodology that has seen our client become an award winning and nationally recognised legal service from a cold start up, and has been featured on TV on numerous occasions.

General Business

Australian Provider of Solar Energy Systems

We have set up a five man team, based here in the UK, to cold-call consumer data provided by the client with the aim of generating opportunities and closing sales over the telephone.

Our client, who is one of Australia's leading solar energy providers, were looking to grow exponentially and 24 I.S. were able to assist in providing quick resource to achieve this growth.

This is a flexible service that allows the client to increase and throttle back sales effort according to their needs.

Market leading online service provider to large name retailers and brands

Starting with nothing more than an initial concept, we designed a sales strategy to take an innovative new service to market.

With an initial emphasis on proving delivery capability of the service, we came up with a business name, a simple set of 'products' that customers could easily understand, and a simple pricing structure.

Initially, we designed a sales process and sold the service into small retailers and brands in order that we could prove to ourselves that we could both deliver a working solution in a stable fashion, as indeed support it.

Following early sales success, we set our sights higher and approached a number of household name retailers with the service, and very quickly managed to win orders from three well known online and traditional 'bricks and mortar' retailers.

We repeated our methodology and the service is now supplied to a large number of both well-known brands and retailers across the world. 

Head Office of a Franchise in the market of baby and children's products

We were engaged by our client who were looking to increase the numbers of agents that they were employing. They simply did not have the time themselves to follow up on previous contacts, and people that had been in touch with them with initial interest.

We called through their lists and were able to narrow this data down into those that were still serious about becoming agents, and we passed these details back to the Head Office to arrange sign-ups.

Online Retro Sweets Distributor

We were contacted by an online retro sweets distributor, who although has a successful consumer client base, was looking to develop and build his corporate client base.

Together we scoped out and profiled target accounts and vertical markets and then implemented a phased approach to target the individual vertical markets, with a number of telesales campaigns over a 3 month period.  This gave focus and valuable feed back to our client to help with future direction and marketing.

Provider of Shopping Loyalty Card

Working with the client immediately prior to launch, we advised them on the recruitment of both a field and an internal sales team.

 

Due to the tight timescales that they were working to, we worked out a fee to provide them with an interviewing service whereby we advertised their vacancies, and arranged for interviews on site at the customer’s Manchester head office.

We then carried out initial interviews, passing suitable people through to meet the CEO for final verification.

Additionally, we advised on the setting of targets, call volumes and appointment rates to hit those targets.

They now bring extra telemarketing campaigns of varying length to us on a frequent basis for us to provide them with an injection of sales impetus at a time to suit them.

Market leaders in Document Scanning

Our household name customer recently embarked on a campaign to contact all of the NHS Trusts within England and Wales to discuss their offerings around the government drive to digitalise patient records.

Our client has booked 3 separate campaigns of 15 days each so far, and continues to return to book more programmes.

Graduate Recruitment Specialist 

Our client came to us with limited sales resource, needing outsourced telesales assistance to develop and build their start up recruitment business. 

Working as a recruitment to recruitment provider of high quality graduate personnel, it was our challenge to target recruitment agencies to pitch the proposition of outsourcing their internal graduate recruitment to our client.

 

We initially started with a small number of telesales days to kick start the campaign and then due to the success of this campaign we became their sole resource for lead and appointment generation as well as assessment day fulfilment.   

As this was ongoing prospecting and pipeline building in a specific recruitment vertical we built in and scheduled 6-8 days per month over a 12 month period to be able to continue cold calling and warm calling.     

Event Planning

As a prestigious event drew closer for our client at The Langham Hotel on London’s Regent Street, we were asked at short notice to call through a long list of already contacted senior delegates from the FTSE 100 to invite them to the day.

 

We were able to both boost delegate numbers with the senior targets, as well as register other relevant contacts and decision makers within their organisations.

 

Further, as part of the campaign, we also made a last minute “catering calls” and not only to obtain a full list of dietary requirements but also to act as a reminder and to aid the smooth running of the day.

Our client who is a respected and well known vendor were planning a one-day Cyber Security Event at the Tower of London.

 

It’s a common theme that we are contacted if delegate numbers need improving as the date of a seminar draws closer.

 

In order to boost attendees at the event, our client provided us with a list of senior contact names and phone numbers. At short notice, we were able to call through the list exhaustively in order to increase the number of delegates to the required attendance levels, thus ensuring that a good number of household name businesses were represented. 

 

If the targeted contacts were unable to attend, we would ask if a relevant level colleague would be able to attend instead and register them accordingly.

Working with a company who are specialists in Human Resources and Employment Law, we were asked by our client to call through some of their target clients in order to invite them to a seminar at a local hotel.

 

The target attendance was 12 people, we always aim to book more than the targeted amount, as we understand dropout rates can sometimes be high and vary at such events. 

 

We were all pleasantly surprised when 40 people attended.

 

The hotel was pleased to switch the room to accommodate the extra numbers and the seminar was a great success.
