Do Physicians Need Cold Calling Skills?
VSA, Inc. is a NJ based cold calling and appointment setting firm that helps companies increase their sales. Hour after hour, day after day, the VSA team makes telephone calls and sends emails on behalf of clients across the country.
The team’s goal is to find interested decision makers, qualify their needs and set sales appointments. VSA staff become an extension of their clients. The senior level executives believe they are talking to someone sitting in the client’s office, not in an outsourced organization.
Mainly, VSA employs a team of experienced employees with deep inside sales skills, and the company has strong employee retention.
But, some former VSA employees do not continue in sales. Instead several have decided to pursue professions in law, architecture, medicine, teaching, finance, neuroscience and foreign policy. To be sure, it’s not the VSA experience that caused the career shifts. In fact, these VSA-alum view their time at VSA as a highly formative period.
Valerie Schlitt is founder and CEO. “I remember when one of our star former employees told us he used his cold calling experience to help his academic department get a grant.”
