Study On Tele Marketing

Manoj krishna A M

Abstract


The mobile telephony has brought a revolution of its kind in the field of communication. Telemarketing has emerged as a powerful tool of direct marketing due to rapid growth of mobile telephony. It carries all the benefits of direct marketing but at a much lower cost. India too is witnessing the upsurge in telemarketing with rising number of mobile users. The Indian Mobile subscriber base has increased from approximately 5 million in 2001 to 7 Million in 2010 (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India). The rural teledensity increased from 9.46% at the end of March 2008 to 15.11% at the end of March 2009 and the urban teledensity increased from 66.39% to 88.84% during the same period. In this backdrop it becomes interesting to find out the products and services that are frequently marketed and the products and services that are readily accepted by customers through this medium of marketing. This paper is an attempt to know the perception and attitude of the customers towards telemarketing; benefits derived by the company in the perception of customers and an overall assessment of this marketing tool. Telemarketing has been selected for this paper to understand the role of various social-psychological issues attached to this medium especially in Indian context. The findings of the survey have given mixed response leading to the conclusion that marketers have to work harder to make this tool more effective.
