Secrets to getting the highest QA scores when working at a call center? INspired INsider Podcast guest Richard Blank Costa Rica's Call Center
Dr. Jeremy Weisz: Just as far as a quality over quantity, I mean the quality interactions over, yeah, we can go ahead and, and call a thousand people, but maybe we research, uh, and call 200 people and have a closer connection. It's more targeted.
Richard Blank: I would prefer you do the thousand, but instead of doing 150 calls a day, I'd rather you do about a buck 20.
Richard Blank: And so give about 30 seconds. Per person, so you don't have to reduce it that much because you need to have a certain sort of momentum. You need to have a certain sort of metric there to get a certain return. So maybe only doing 20% might not be good enough because you were working before, you know, at a hundred percent.
Richard Blank: But I could reduce it to about an 85% and use that 15% as you were mentioning, to make it custom made. And that could potentially, Any sort of, you know, latency that you might have in regards to the phone calls. But, um, I also, I always believed in a quality phone call, and I don't want somebody, it's, it's almost like a painter when you're commissioned, compared to doing it on your own, you might have a different sort of way to create that work.
Richard Blank: And so I just don't want somebody on the clock. I don't want them to go on the phone for five hours if it happens, you know, so be it. It'll be an amazing phone call, but they should never rush the middle or the ending of the call, or when they're getting a referral or if they're talking about a company's promotion, because that my friend is where I give the most points when I'm grading their calls.
Richard Blank: Not that they go through the motions to see if they had that breakthrough with that individual. So when we're taking notes and putting in the system and have to call them back, they're gonna compliment us. On our note taking skills because they're so detailed and we've taken the time, unlike other people to remember certain facts about them, that when they take our offer into consideration, they realize how we work prior to any sort of context to talk about.
