How local area presence benefits your sales team
  • Increase cold call answer rates

    A recent survey found people are 4x more likely to answer a call from a local number. That’s four times more connections with the people you’re calling, and four times more opportunities to hit your sales quota.

  • Establish Local Credibility

    By calling from a local number, you let prospects know you already do business in their area and came prepared to meet their unique needs. Virtual phone presence makes sure you start every call on the right foot before they’ve even picked up the phone.

  • Unify Your Team

    Regardless of how many satellite offices or remote employees you have, LAP gives your sales team a local presence that’s easy for prospects to remember and reply to.

To keep continuity with your communications, use Returned Call Routing to ensure prospects are always reconnected to the agent who called them originally.
