What is the SalesPortal marketplace?
The SalesPortal marketplace enables companies that have phone-based sales, customer service, or fulfillment centers to further monetize their phone traffic by auctioning off the last 30 seconds of each phone call (i.e. after the customer-caller's main reason for calling is taken care of) to the highest-paying and the most relevant marketing partner ("Lead Buyer"). In this way, (Lead Buyers) in the SalesPortal marketplace get live, inbound phone leads on demand. These leads are 100% exclusive to just one Lead Buyer; and since the calls are from interested and qualified prospects, they have markedly high sales conversion rates. Plus, the Lead Buyer has the flexibility to define exactly what they want to pay on a per-lead basis.
What are "on-demand, live, qualified" phone leads?
SalesPortal leads are warm transfers from the phone-based sales and customer service centers of branded companies. These warm-transfer phone calls from interested and pre-qualified customers are delivered to Lead Buyers on demand - Lead Buyers have complete control over their SalesPortal campaigns and can, in real-time, increase/decrease their price-per-lead, pause/re-start their lead flow, etc.
Who is buying these phone leads?
Marketers that sell products and/or services directly to their consumer and business customers buy leads (call transfers) on SalesPortal. If you are a Marketer, you can leverage SalesPortal to generate high value sales leads.
What are some examples of transactions on SalesPortal?
If you sell a product or service directly to your customer base, you would be a Lead Buyer on SalesPortal. And if you have a phone-based sales, customer service, or fulfillment center (in-house or outsourced), you would be a Lead Seller on SalesPortal.
Here are some real-life examples:
Example 1: An interested caller responds to an exercise equipment manufacturer's DRTV advertisement. At the end of the call, the sales agent asks the caller if they would be interested in getting a 3-week trial of nutritional meals that would help them lose weight. Once the caller expresses interest in this new offer, the agent warm-transfers the caller to the company that sells the weight-loss nutritional meals. In this example, the exercise equipment marketer is the Lead Seller and the company selling weight-loss meals is the Lead Buyer. However, the roles could easily be reversed, i.e. the weight-loss meals company could sell their leads to an exercise equipment company. In fact, direct marketers on SalesPortal usually do both - they buy and sell leads.
Example 2: An electronic retail store has a contact center for customer service. A customer calls to schedule the delivery of a television set that they bought from the retailer. After scheduling the delivery, the customer service agent asks the caller if they would be interested in getting 50% off for 6 months of satellite television service. When the caller shows interest in this offer, they are seamlessly live-transferred to the satellite television company's sales contact center.
