Call center for Financial Publishers

Get and keep more front- and back-end subscribers
and renewals for your financial publishing company

We provide financial publishers with call center service that provides your customers with
an amazing experience through world-class quality support. At the same, our agents use specific strategies to consistently boost the sales of your front-end and back-end publications while improving your customer retention.

TRUSTED BY

The big problems financial publishers normally face:

  1. Providing a world-class customer experience to your subscribers.
  2. Creating inbound sales opportunities.
  3. Cross-selling & upselling front-end subscribers into back-end publications.
  4. Availability at the right time of day.
  5. Having a strong team dedicated to the premium subscriber.
  6. Inbound sales conversion rates.
  7. Outbound sales campaigns to your potential customers.
  8. Onboarding your new customers.
  9. Reducing cancels and refunds.
  10. Recovering failed automatic subscription renewals and expired subscriptions.

1.Providing world-class customer support to your subscribers.

The level of support provided to your customers is a direct reflection of your financial publishing business.
High-quality support provides your customers with confidence in your products & services. Confidence adds to the value of their subscription, which can lead to increased renewals and increase receptivity to cross sells, and upsells to your premium publications.

2. Creating inbound sales opportunities.

Many front- and back-end publications miss 20% of 40% of all inbound sales for various reasons, which include…

  • Agent teams not knowledgeable about your publications and unable to cross sell or upsell your products & services.
  • Agents not able to persuade customers to buy.
  • Mis-matches between your marketing messages and your actual promotions.
  • Mistaking inbound calls as customer service inquiries when they were really sales inquiries.

3. Cross-selling & upselling front-end subscribers into back-end publications

Most financial publishers have tens of thousands of front-end subscribers who have never subscribed to a premium publication. This represents a massive opportunity to cross-sell on outbound and inbound calls.

4. Availability at the right time of day

Many of your customers and prospects live in different time zones across the world. So you must be available for them after your normal business hours, including evenings, late nights, and weekends.

5. Having a strong team dedicated to the premium subscriber.

Just as hotel chains such as Marriott have VIP tiers with premium service, financial publishers benefit from providing additional perks for their backend publication customers. A higher level of service adds more perceived value to your premium products, which helps the longevity of those customers (and your lifetime customer value).

6. Inbound sales conversion rates.

Approximately 30% to 40% of all inbound sales calls are “complex type”. This means your customers are interested enough to call but NOT yet interested enough to buy. Your complex sales prospects have doubts, objections, and questions which may consist of the following:

  • How do watch the webinar?
  • I have a question about publication X ...
  • Can I use guru/editors publication Y if I don't have previous experience ...
  • I looked at your (video sales letter/email/landing page) and I was wondering ...
  • And so on

7. Outbound sales campaigns to your potential customers

There are many different lists that financial publishers can monetize. These include…

  • Active front-end publication subscribers
  • Brand new customers
  • People who have signed up for free trials and publications
  • Viewers of a webinar or VSL who didn’t make a purchase
  • People who abandon the order forms
  • Prospects who tried to transact but had a declined payment

8. Onboarding your new customers.

Onboarding helps your new customers build trust with their new service and your brand. It’s also possible to combine onboarding with cross-selling and upselling to other services, increasing your customer value.

9. Reducing cancels and refunds.

All most all subscribers cancel because they never used your publication or they used it and lost money. Financial publishers should be able to save at least 25% of all potential cancellations. The key to achieving this is knowing the 6 key factors that turn potential cancels into long-term customers. These are…

  • Understanding the pubs and track record, and know what to do when people are having trouble with each pub
  • Speak to everyone who cancels whether they cancel on an inbound call, via email, or in the membership area
  • Understanding the surface reason for cancelling and overcome it (e.g., I'm too busy, no reason, etc.)
  • Identifying the root cause reason they cancelled (didn’t use it, or used it and lost money)
  • Resell the publication (or switch them into another publication)
  • Convince them to change their minds and give the publication another try

10. Recovering failed automatic subscription renewals and expired subscriptions.

Between 20% to 40% of a financial publisher’s credit cards on file will go out of circulation each year. But by predicting failed and expired renewals months in advance, a strong call center can help financial publishers save up to 35% of these otherwise lost subscribers.

What you get

Specialist Sales, Support and Retention Call Center

Founder Jesse Rosenthal and Loop's Senior Leadership team have decades of experience helping many of America's biggest brands to build and run world-class support services and high-performance call centers for financial publishers.

Specialized solutions and services

We have studied the customer journey of various financial publishers and learned their pain points and opportunities. From that, we've developed our exclusive approach to maximizing acquisition & retention at key points throughout the customer journey. Our services are customized for each client, enabling us to start up new high-functioning call center services quickly.

Strategic planning and process creation

communication channel, whether its phone, email, live chat, SMS, or social media. Our processes are then cascaded to our agent teams via an in-depth formal training program.

  • Financial publisher support services - we create strategies, tactics, offers, and more.
  • Customer support services - we create end-to-end processes, a knowledge base, call flows, quality assurance programs, and more.

Fully utilized agents who can do phone and email sales & customer service

Each agent is trained separately for each of your products and services to be able to handle your call center needs. Our agents are trained to dial outbound to your customers, take inbound calls, and respond to inbound emails or website chat inquiries to sell, cross-sell, or upsell your products and services.

In addition, we maximize productivity by training our agents to be multiskilled. That means the same dedicated agents can provide you with customer service AND sales support. We do this while maintaining the highest compliance standards in all channels and service types, including TCPA, US Federal and State Do Not Call Lists, and other regulations.

Premium management, support, and frontline agents

Our main office is headquartered in the Philippines, the world capital of call center support services. This gives you instant access to the world’s best talents primed to help you grow. Loop attracts and develops these talents with its world-class talent acquisition and training programs.

Talent Acquisition

Our dedicated HR team selectively handpicks only the best candidates. We use a multilayered screening process to ensure we hire great agents for your account. The process includes…

  • Follow-up interviews by the manager or supervisor running the account
  • Requirement scoping
  • Talent sourcing
  • In-depth tests to evaluate candidates spoken English abilities, typing, attention to detail, sales and customer service aptitude, professional demeanor, reliability, and more
  • Initial interviews
  • Final pre-employment background checks, references, drug testing, and other due diligence

Training New Agents

After selecting the right candidates, our Operations team trains them to become top-performing agents. Our professional call center trainers typically provide 40 to 80 hours of training to newly-hired agents. Near the end, they’re tested and certified. And they ONLY go live if they pass. Once they go live, we have a ramp-up plan where they begin with simple tasks, gradually moving into more advanced tasks.

For example, if you have 10 products or services, they'll begin with a few and branch out over the first few months to all 10. Soon, they'll deliver world-class customer service and exceptional sales results to customers of all of your products and services.

Then, once fully trained, you have a high-performance team dedicated to you, smashing sales and/or customer support goals, demonstrating expertise in your business, and delivering reliable results and quality.

Refresher Training

We conduct regular refresher training programs to ensure they’re properly representing your brand. And we keep on top of all changes to your business. When your products and services change, website changes, processes change, tech change, or you launch new marketing campaigns, the manager or supervisor assigned to your account studies the changes, updates or creates new processes, strategies, tactics, scripts, and training materials, and uptrains your team, so everyone's using the most-recent and best information and processes.
From this you get a world-class team delivering world-class support and high-performance sales.

Save money and scale your business

We give you the right number of dedicated, skilled, trained agents for your business without overstaffing (and overspending). As your business’ phone, email, and chat needs grow, we add agents. If you need to scale back, we can do that too.
