The primary objective of telemarketing to schools is to build profitable, mutually-beneficial, and long-lasting relationships between your company and target schools. Commercial relationships may involve Head teachers, Bursars, Business managers and others.

All of this should offer you some guidance about the level of interest the sector might have in your products and services. Telemarketing can reveal more about each school on your list, who the main decision makers are, and buying behaviour /cycles. If they have a current supplier, a telemarketer can find out when their current contract ends. This will provide actionable intelligence for future targeted marketing campaigns.
Market research allows you to build up a picture of how the education sector works. This allows you to see how your companies products or services can fit into it.
To ensure success of your telemarketing campaign test a variety of different approaches. Use your segmented school calling list to try out different versions of the same message.
Record the results of each campaign and compare their performance, making adjustments as you go. Ideally, you would test everything from the overall message to the greeting or the order of what you say.
By doing this, you will be in the best place to judge the best-performing approach. This means that your staff can replicate the approach for future telemarketing to create the most successful campaigns.

Excellent Quality Data delivered promptly with great service. Has been a huge help during the current pandemic and will be using them regularly. The best I have ever dealt with. Account Manager Lisa Kinghorn is an asset to the business. Great company with superb customer service.
We've recently worked with Scott. He was outstanding from our initial conversation, through to data acquisition and subsequent email marketing campaign. I have nothing but good words to say about him, the company and the service they provided. I should add that we were a little hesitant before agreeing to work with Scott due to a bad experience with another provider. He was extremely empathetic towards our predicament and ultimately guided us through the onboarding and service delivery. He clearly knows he's stuff.
Having a very specific need for B2B marketing we decided to use More than Words. We spoke to Clare Tweed who was very knowledgeable and made the whole process very easy. Clare is easy to speak with, happy to help and I could not recommend her enough, she got our order sorted very quickly and delivered to us as agreed. A huge thank you to Clare and the team at More Than Words.
On behalf of myself and DOM UK, thank you to Clare and the team for making our customer survey process as straight-forward as possible. Reached out to the company after finding them using a Google search and was contacted back straight away. They used expert knowledge to help set-up our survey to achieve the best result possible. Would recommend and will be using More Than Words Marketing again.
