Go ask your marketing department, what’s the biggest problem that they face during marketing campaigns.
They can have the best ideas and budgets for the campaigns but if they start with targeting people from a random database being sold on the internet for 200 bucks, something like this:
Then they are not going to get very far in terms of the results that they get.
The simple reason for this is because this is a random database, these are totally irrelevant leads that neither know you nor care about you.
But there is one segment of leads that do know you and will care about you, it’s your existing contacts. If you have been in business, operating with a team for some time, then you must have connected with a lot of prospects and contacts up till now. Target these people.
They already know you, so they will be interested in listening to you and your offerings. And so these are the people that have the highest chance of conversion and become your paying customers.
But here’s the problem, it’s really difficult to filter out these leads based on different criteria, For this you need a highly functional CRM through which you can set different filters and easily sort out relevant leads based on the different conditions.
Here’s how you can use CRM for marketing purposes by setting different types of filters on your existing contacts and targeting them inside TeleCRM.

Untouched leads filter
What are untouched leads?
These are leads that came into your system but no one in your team has touched base with them even once.
Why your system has untouched leads?
It’s impossible to get in touch with every lead right away. And, that’s why it’s obvious that the system will have untouched leads. In fact, if there are no untouched leads in the system then your sales team will be sitting idle with not enough work to do. But they already are interested as they came looking for a solution or system. So you surely don’t want to miss out on these leads.

Unconnected leads (call not connected) filter
These are the leads that you’re team tried calling but could not connect with them. This majorly happens because of network failure.
