Should B2B Marketing Own Teleprospecting Campaigns? Why? – Top 5 Reasons

Teleprospecting Campaigns

According to Marketing Sherpa, marketing departments have been taking responsibility for teleprospecting for many years. Why it might be happening? Well, we went through the Benchmark Report for 2012 on B2B by Meclabs to find the answer and saw – that marketing statistics are just a reflection of the day-to-day behaviors that keep sales and marketing teams stuck in a time warp. And teleprospecting in this aspect has a different role to play.

Before beginning this discussion, the big question in this aspect which we have to answer is- “What is tele-prospecting or teleprospecting?

Teleprospecting is not selling something over the phone, but its function is to keep the sales department active. The B2B telemarketing company uses tele-prospecting to follow up, and qualifies for the market responders, and generates demand for the product or the service through outbound calling.

The tele-prospecting should serve as a connector between sales and marketing. For good reasons, one of the departments should handle tele-prospecting to give marketing a good momentum. Before we say why marketing should own this function, let us discuss why tele-prospecting is a part of the sales activity.

How A TeleProspecting Agent Must Act?

  • Teleprospecting agents should chalk out a path to grow a sales aptitude.
  • You need a sales culture while running a tele-prospecting operation.
  • The agents need to craft a compensation structure, based on results.
  • The agents need to align with the sales.
