Not everyone is comfortable speaking on the phone or has the time but failing to keep in touch with your customers can be extremely costly to your business. It's unusual to be able to source someone who can work as little or as many hours as you like and who has so much experience in the printing industry. 

Vicky spent the 4 years at Tradeprint and the 12 years before that working within my own printing company. Now she has set up on her own offering outsourced customer service for printing companies just like yours without having to worry about all the large costs associated with employing staff. 

The following will give you an idea of the type of things she could help you out with:

  • Cold calling/List Building to see if we can send them some information on your services
  • Quote follow-ups to drive up your conversion rates
  • Courtesy calls to keep in touch with your existing clients/generate new enquiries
  • Post-delivery follow-ups to ensure jobs have arrived ok and encourage company reviews
