More Than Words Marketing specialises in direct marketing to business, schools and the public sector. Our B2B telemarketing data provides a contemporary snapshot of British business.

From this marketing data, you can select the decision makers most in need of your product or service from your chosen sector or niche.

Telemarketing is a powerful tool for lead generation.

According to the UK Data and Marketing Association, you will, on average, receive 129 positive responses from every 1,000 calls made where you speak to the decision makers.

This compares with 1 response per 1,000 from email marketing and 44 responses per 1,000 from direct mail campaigns.

69% of business owners and decision makers take calls from sales people with 57% stating that they prefer being contacted by telephone.

If you’re attending or hosting an event, 75% of the people who come will do so because they’ve received either a cold call or a cold email.

Telesales and telemarketing still works.

How to generate the maximum possible return from B2B telesales

Multichannel marketing has gained prevalence in recent years.

It offers B2B marketers an opportunity to better integrate sales and marketing channels to deliver more consistent promotional messages.

B2B purchase decisions usually require an agreement by committee making the process more complex than targeting consumers.

In fact, according to Harvard Business Review, the number of stakeholders involved in B2B purchase decisions increased from 5.4 in 2015 to 6.8 in 2017.

As a result, it can be difficult for B2B organisations to measure the impact of their marketing campaign.

Conveying a unified message across all sales channels will help any decision maker to feel more comfortable with your company.

It also fosters trust and authority in the decision makers you need to convince at all stages of their buying journeys.

Telemarketing has proven to be an effective means of building personal connections with potential customers over the phone adding to and qualifying the messages directed over email and social media.

B2B telemarketing data FAQ

A B2B calling database contains a phone list for telemarketing to businesses and other supporting information on each company included.

There are two ways you can use your B2B calling list and they are:

  • your existing telemarketing team can contact the decision makers on the list
  • you can outsource your campaign to an established outsourced telemarketing services provider.

There is a significant degree of interchangeability between the two terms but, in general:

  • B2B telemarketing is when your company books appointments, generate leads, or updates its databases by making outbound telephone calls, and
  • B2B telesales is an attempt to make a sale over the phone during which payment arrangements with the customer are finalised (for example, taking credit or debit card details there and then or issuing an invoice).

As leading B2B data providers in the UK, we have the following information on every (or nearly every) record on our calling list:

  • Contact title – Mrs, Mrs, Miss, Dr, and so on
  • Contact first name – the name by which people who know the contact well addresses them
  • Contact surname – the family name or surname of the contact
  • Contact job title – the contact’s self-reported job title
  • Phone – the switchboard number of the company
  • Category – the business sector your contact’s company operates in (our list of B2B industries in the UK encompasses over 2,000 trading activities)
  • Legal status – limited company, PLC, LLP, sole trader, partnership

The following fields are contained on every record on your calling list but there is not full coverage.

In brackets after each field is the “coverage” for each record across the database.

For example, there is a 70% coverage for “premises type” across the database. This means that, for every 10 records, seven will contain information about the premises type occupied by the company for which your contact works.

Please let your account manager know when they’re running a count for you about the fields below which are of particular importance to you.

The additional fields on each calling record together with their approximate levels of coverage are:

  • Employees on site – how many employees the company has (90% coverage)
  • Branch count – how many locations the company operates from (90% coverage)
  • Website – the main website URL for the business (75% coverage)
  • Premise type – the types of premises occupied by the business represented by a numeric code (70% coverage)
  • Premise type description – a descriptive of the type of premises occupied, for example health setting, warehouse, etc (70% coverage)
  • Turnover band – the company’s last reported annual revenue (60% coverage)
  • Year started – the year the company, in its original or current form, began trading (40% coverage)
  • Company registration number – supplied by Companies House upon incorporation (8% coverage)
  • Incorporation date – the date on which the business was incorporated at Companies House (8% coverage)
  • Net worth – the positive or negative value of the company according to their last publish accounts (7% coverage)
  • Profitable or loss-making – a numeric code indicating whether the company made a profit or loss in its previous financial year (2% coverage)
  • Profit percent change over previous year – a percentage figure indicating the percentage to which the profit of the company increased year on year as shown in the company’s previous two full reported financial years (2% coverage)
  • Sales increase or decrease over previous year – a figure in pounds showing any increase or decline in the company’s revenue in the last reported financial year (2% coverage)

For all of the records on our B2B telemarketing lists, we list either the “company leader” or the “most senior contact”.

In addition, we maintain and update a substantial database of other decision makers more narrower financial and budgetary responsibility.

The eleven other types of decision maker we hold are:

  • engineering
  • facilities
  • finance
  • fleet
  • health and safety
  • HR
  • marketing
  • operations
  • purchasing
  • sales
  • telecommunications

The numbers we have for these classifications are less than the over 1 million we have for “company leader” or the “most senior contact”.

However, for some of the areas, we do actually have tens or hundreds of thousands of contact names.

Yes – we have information on the number of staff employed by 90% of the businesses on our calling list and information on turnover for around 60%.

Let us know the sizes, locations, and sectors of the companies you wish us to include on your bespoke SME business database for telemarketing.

We do not sell B2C telemarketing databases primarily because:

  • there is not legal certainty over the “legitimate interest” principle when calling consumers and
  • there are over 20m numbers on the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) meaning that the remaining pool of non-TPS number is not large enough for us to create a viable regularly-updated product.

There are B2C data providers in the UK offering consumer telemarketing databases do exist and many of the lists are on sale from reputable and long-established firms.

However, we caution that you carry out full due diligence on the telemarketing data providers you approach before committing to make a purchase.

We also ensure that the suppliers we use are also GDPR and PECR compliant too.

We charge per 1,000 records subject to our company minimum order.

We’re in a competitive marketplace and we want you to make a return on your investment with us so it’s our company’s policy to make our B2B calling lists as affordable as possible without comprising quality or efficacy.

Once we have sent you your B2B calling list, you can use it for the 12 months following purchase.

At the end of the twelve months, you then need to relicense the data in order to be able to continue using it.

There are three exceptions to this rule however.

You can remain in touch with the contacts on your B2B calling list if, as a result of a telemarketing campaign you have carried out to them:

  • a decision maker has purchased from you,
  • you are in dialogue with a decision maker but a purchase has not yet taken place, or
  • a decision maker has confirmed to you in writing that they wish you to stay in touch with them (please keep your written records up to date during the course of the year).

These are standard terms offered by all UK telemarketing list providers.
