Learning outcomes

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand how marketing campaigns are created
  • Identify opportunities to share valuable insights with the marketing team
  • Understand how two-way feedback will help you with contact centre resource planning

Benefits to your business

For the marketing team the contact centre fulfills several important roles. Firstly, it is one of the main points of contact with customers and as such a ‘moment of truth’ in the customer relationship. Secondly it is often down to the contact centre to handle response from marketing campaigns, whether those are phone calls or emails. Marketing of course wants to optimise those results and convert as many fresh leads as possible into paying customers.

Aligning your contact centre operations with the marketing team’s campaigns and objectives ensures that the necessary resources are available to the marketing team to optimise results. That leads to more new customers and more customers retained, which also makes for happy marketing people.
