No matter what the rank or status of a company is, every company needs a good boost. Personalisation is one of the most effective ways to reach out to your target audience or customers. Your customers will get to relate to your company and are more likely to respond, provided you communicate effectively.
Direct dials is a kind of service, via which an index of phone numbers is provided by a local company. This list of numbers is used to another company's private branch exchange (PBX) system. These calls take approximately 5 minutes, and you can make up to 12 calls in an hour. On the other hand, if you are to use a switchboard, you can only make around 3 calls in an hour.
In the age of social media, direct dials are still as important and relevant as e-mails. Sales teams in the past used to do it all the time. However, e-mails today still generate more ROI (Return of Interest), but direct dials are much faster. Think about it, generating e-mails doesn't take that much time as much as it takes to actually prepare for them. According to studies, sales representatives spend 21% of their time in creating the recipient email list. Not only this but around 17% of their time is spent on researching about lead generation and entering data, as well as around 12% on setting a timeline for calls and internal organisation meetings.

Remember that the timing and duration of these direct dials are as crucial as the content and information you plan to inform your customers.
