“Just a short note to say thank you for all the hard work that GSA has done for our business over the last couple of years. The team on our business has always been very in tune with the agency. We have found GSA to be very effective at representing us on the phone and in fixing new business meetings. I would be delighted to recommend your services to others and to use you again in the future.”Managing Director Advertising agency
“I hope all is well for you during these difficult times. I just wanted to tell you how pleased we continue to be with Laura. She is getting us appointments with decent companies and working hard on our behalf. Thank you for asking Laura to work with us, much appreciated.”Director Financial Service PR agency
“Just a quick note to say thank you for your effort on our behalf. I appreciate that we have not been in touch since you completed our project. Apologies for such rudeness but you know how easily one is distracted by a to do list! We have yet to actually convert any of our contacts into revenue but we are working on it! I have yet to pull together a proper evaluation of the campaign from our perspective but my gut reaction is very positive. We were always suspicious that an “outsider” such as yourselves would be able to communicate credibly on such a technical subject but we were very impressed with your ability to get through to people and start to build credible relationships for us. Thank you.”Director Media Monitoring Company

“Just wanted to say thanks to Jonathan and the team for all of their efforts to put us infront of the people we need to do business with. Lead generation is always a challenge and GSA enabled us to increase the number of leads into our business. I was very pleased with the professional service and results and Carol is brilliant. I look forward to working with you again in the future”Sale Director DCS (London) Limited
“The preparation that GSA put into our campaign was highly professional and set the foundations for an ongoing successful campaign. The initial meeting with Jonathan was so valuable in transferring information and assisting to embed GSA into our business. The questions he asked challenged my thinking about the offer we provide and how we differentiate ourselves. This is obviously crucial in converting prospects to Customers ….. once you have been able to secure a meeting with them of course !
Tyna has been absolutely marvellous in selling our initial offer to secure these meetings for me; with the right people. As far as our prospects are concerned Tyna is their first contact with our business. The quality of the information, all sent in a timely way; followed by weekly reports re iterates the professional company that GSA are.
As a result of the appointments that Tyna has set I have then been able to convert prospects to sales. We have already extended the contract to continue the success of working with GSA .”Supplier to automotive sector
“I would happily recommend the team at GSA Business Development. We appointed GSA for telemarketing services to support our business development strategy. I was very impressed with the levels of focus and energy that the GSA team brought to the project – this helped to quickly identify new commercial opportunities. GSA had limited experience in our sector but they very quickly got up to speed and were able to provide us with a number of excellent opportunities that have subsequently been converted into new clients.”Simon Starkey, Commercial Director R.Bugg Fowarding Ltd
“I worked with GSA Marketing, for 2 very different telemarketing projects during the last year. One, for a campaign in UK, performed by British telemarketers to identify new sales opportunities performing in-depth investigational calls, and another, larger project, spread over 5 months, performed by a multi-language team, reaching 18 countries in Europe and North America with informative and scripted calls. In both projects, I’ve been very pleased with the service and the results provided, for several reasons, including helpful regular reporting and transparent communications, but mainly because the team at GSA adapted the service to our specifications. They have also always been a gold source of advice that I know I can rely on.”Global chemical manufacturer
“GSA Marketing worked with us on a test campaign to assess the viability of an outbound sales function in what is a relatively niche sector (outdoor learning residential breaks for Special Educational Needs schools) for our centre in the Lake District. The target market was Teachers or Special Needs Coordinators within schools and colleges, with us providing contact details, albeit un-validated, from our existing database – a combination of organisations who had enquired but never visited, or lapsed. We asked them to pitch for our business from a shortlist of potential suppliers and we chose them due to the bespoke attention they paid to our enquiry, and once selected were very pleased with the personal attention they gave us at a senior level. Setting up the campaign with them was very straightforward and we were impressed by the level of reporting through the campaign and the quality of the calls made by their staff, with each call being recorded. Warm leads were passed to us to follow-up and the quality of the contact information supplied very good. The nature of our business is that 1st contact to booking is usually relatively long, but we were delighted that the month long campaign quickly resulted in a booking from an entirely new customer which more than covered the capital cost of the test. We also now have several schools visiting the centre on an inspection trip, and previous experience tells us that a proportion of these will also convert. All in all, we were very pleased with this outbound sales test and GSA’s contribution to its success. We now have the confidence to invest in sales resource at the centre as a direct result”Justin Farnan, Business Manager (Sales and Marketing) Lake District Calvert Trust
“GSA took on board our comprehensive brief and provided an excellent service from campaign inception through to analysis upon completion. We were particularly impressed by the professionalism and telephone manner of Julia March in conducting the calls to medical staff. Julia was quick to understand our technology and the correct terminology to use, with her distinct conversational tone helping to sell the benefits and uses of our speech privacy systems rather than focusing on the product. Likewise, the communications from both Julia and Kevin Harmsworth throughout ensured we remained fully up to date with progress, even when the campaign was temporarily put on hold to garner better results later in the year.”Steve Rees-Smith, Marketing/PR Vaughan Sound Installations Ltd
