Auto Dialer Software – May Not Be The Right Choice

Here’s why, and the #1 most effective alternative.

Think an Auto Dialer is Right for You? Not So Fast...

Let's face it. Manual dialing is slow, repetitive, and grossly inefficient for most sales organizations.

But it’s important to note that while there are various platforms that will dial numbers for you— many so-called automatic dialers, carry risks and disadvantages you must be aware of, especially for sales organizations.

The term “auto dialer” or “automatic dialer” refers to software that dials numbers until it reaches a live answer, and then plays a recording, or routes the call to an available agent.

That might sound super efficient. And in terms of call volume, it is. However, in terms of sales effectiveness there are much better options. Options that don't result in that awkward pause (the “telemarketer delay”) that screams sales call, and leads to hang-ups and drastically reduced response rates. If your goal is to have productive live conversations, a traditional auto dialer is not a good option.

Then come the legality issues associated with automated dialing...

Automated Dialing Software and TCPA/FCC Compliance

It better be! Auto dialers are strictly regulated by the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) or Federal Communications Commission (FCC) standards. Violating the terms of the TCPA exposes your business to hefty fines as high as $16,000, for EACH violation. For small to medium businesses, that can be devastating.

Most businesses are aware of do-not-call (DNC) restrictions, as well as time restrictions. However, when it comes to auto dialer software, a major risk is dropped calls. Exceed more than 3 percent and you're in violation.

By design, automatic dialer services produce dropped calls. That's because when someone picks up, an agent isn't always available to route the call to. Is it worth frustrating your contacts, hurting your sales numbers and putting your business at risk?

Not when there's such an effective alternative.
