How the Callbox Team Spends the Holiday Season [INFOGRAPHIC]

 

Parties

This year’s company party is a fitting conclusion to an amazing 2017. But the year-end party goes beyond celebrating business successes. It’s about showcasing the Callbox culture and identity.

We always plan the party around maximizing team interaction. We’re a relatively big family, so this is one way of helping everyone get to know everybody else.

Charity

Charity has always been a part of Callbox’s holiday tradition. In fact, giving back to the community forms part of our calendar the whole year round.

Each year, we carry out feeding programs, help deliver relief goods, and conduct after-school learning projects. The holidays simply wouldn’t be complete without donations and volunteer work from the team.

Gift-Giving

Callbox is a family of generous gift givers. When the holidays roll around, everyone’s busy making their list and checking it twice (and sometimes even thrice).

The Callbox team has its own take on the Secret Santa tradition. Everybody gets little presents from their Secret Santas weeks before the actual gift exchange.

Contests

Nobody at Callbox shies away from a contest. That drive to compete and win makes Callbox the company it is today. It also makes the holidays really exciting.

Each December, different departments go head to head, showing off their skills in activities such as Christmas tree-decorating and choral singing.

Awards

Being part of the Callbox team means your performance doesn’t go unnoticed or unrewarded. December is the time for recognizing the great work that everybody’s been doing for the past 12 months.

We make the holidays even brighter by letting the Callbox team’s stars shine through awards and prizes.

Lookback/Look-Ahead

For most companies, the run-up to the end of the year is when annual reviews and planning kick into high gear. At Callbox, we turn these activities into a holiday staple.

We take a collaborative approach at planning and review. This means that we sit down as a team and work out where we’ve been and where we’re going.

What to do with your Telemarketing Campaign before going on a Holiday

What to do with your Telemarketing Campaign before going on a Holiday

The last quarter of the year marks the homestretch of business to business marketing campaigns. The last three months of the year show monthly calendars of almost daily local and national holidays, observances, and state holidays. However, you may have to take out a to do list first of the things you need get a parking on before you take the leap to the airport and fly to your holiday get away. Take a look at the three-point list below of how to manage a B2B marketing project while catching up with the holiday rush.

Sync your working calendar with that of your prospects’

Start planning a perfect holiday spree by ticking the boxes of important dates of your business calendar for the year. The question, “Do your business prospects take holidays off” & “When”, will help you determine the perfect time on plotting the remaining working days of your campaign, and the start date of your official holiday leave. Have both your active and non-active days synced with that of your telemarketing team to get an organized schedule of pauses and start offs.

Schedule a “Pause” on the calling activities

The pause should start on the first day of your scheduled holiday leave which should sync with that of your prospects’. Make sure that your working team’s calendar should be blocked from all appointment setting activities – this will ensure that no lead or appointment would be posted during these days off, and no chance for lost deals. The “Start” date to resume the telemarketing calls must fall on the day, you and your prospects, or most of them, come back to work.

Set an Email Auto Reply

Wouldn’t it be so relaxing to sip on a glass of vodka, while in a vacation island, without the hassle of getting bugged by email alerts – like lapsed appointments? Email is the most legit and formal medium for business to business communication. Though mobile calling and texting, and the social media come in handy for both personal and business connections, it is best that business talks are funneled into just one venue like email. This will help you avoid missed communications and even missed business transaction meetings.

You may follow a very simple Out of Office (OOO) reply format like “I am currently out of the office for the holidays and will be back on (date). For urgent matters, you may reach me at (number)”. However, leaving contact information in your OOO email reply will be up to your discretion, as this should be dependent on the nature of your work or business.

Ideally, a lead generation campaign must follow a synchronized pattern workflow of tasks, reports and schedules in a streamlined process which involves you, your prospects, and your telemarketing team.

So keep everything in place in the office before you leave for a week or two, with no calls, all bustles.

Enjoy the holiday spree!
