"Running one the largest conference for high growth businesses in the UK, I was seeking help in identifying, building relationships, and communicating our events to growing businesses. I have also been sceptical about using telemarketing following some bad experiences in the past. However, having met Vicki and her team with a refreshing and professional approach I was willing to give Straightahead a go. I was not disappointed. They have been brilliant - being both exemplars of my brand, building great relationships and getting attendees to my next event. I will be using them again!"

"Belmont Regency has used Straighahead for over a year and we were happy with the results they achieved. Good communication and a pleasure to deal with."
"I cannot recommend Vicki and her sales team enough! Throughout my dealings with Vicki, I found her to be extremely professional and conscientious. I was particularly concerned about embarking upon a telemarketing sales campaign for my firm’s employment services since it is unusual for a legal practice to market its services in such a way. However Vicki reassured me from the beginning that the campaign would be conducted in a polite and unintrusive manner, and from the fantastic results that received from the campaign, it is clear that Vicki and her staff know how to speak to people and create leads and appointments. I have been so impressed with the services of Straightahead, that I have already started to recommend them to other businesses who are looking for telemarketing services."
"Telemarketing is not something that as a firm of solicitors we have ever contemplated before, due to the delicate nature of the work, but Vicki and her team were quite simply excellent. They grasped the issues involved immediately and I couldn’t have been more impressed with the way in which they outlined the way in which the calls would be compassionately and sensitively made. The results were utterly fantastic and only made me wonder why I hadn’t done anything earlier- we will definitely be using Straightahead again."
"Having recently undertaken a telemarketing campaign with Straightahead we would have no hesitation in recommending their services. We have had quality appointments from the calls and have been able to covert a higher than expected proportion of these appointments to clients. Even when an appointment wasn’t a possibility Vicki and her team were able to obtain contact details for decision-makers which will be of longer-term benefit to us."
"From our initial meeting, throughout the campaign and afterwards, Straightahead has been totally efficient, professional and a pleasure to do business with. The success of the campaign exceeded our expectations and this is a result of your efforts on our behalf. Thank you. In addition to our first campaign, your patience and professionalism regarding two other matters has been invaluable and helped us to achieve a much sharper focus in our communications with clients. There is absolutely no doubt that we will be using Straightahead again for future campaigns. In fact, you will be the very first call we make."
"We started working with Straightahead after a recommendation to help us generate leads and make appointments to drive our business forward. We received fully qualified appointments on a daily basis that was great and gave us more information than we thought possible. The team have built a great pipeline of potential clients for us to work on over the next few months of which we are very excited about. The level of service and sheer detail of the conversations the team had with our potential clients has left us with no hesitation that we would use the services of Straightahead UK again."

"Beginning the adventure of a start-up is never easy. To start a business in a highly competitive sector two months into a global pandemic could have been highly challenging. Working with the StraightAhead team we’ve connected with businesses faster and have a number of promising leads we continue to range with. Vicki, Kaitlyn are a great team and a pleasure to do business with.

"Telemarketing Agencies can promise the earth but then fail to deliver when negotiating for a new contract, so we took immense care in the selection of our partners, our first relationship was with a company we knew, but despite this the results were disappointing. We were lucky enough to engage with StraightAhead as our own client working on a project funded by the EU Social Fund and the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership. This told us that they valued their employees and invested in their development, so it was no surprise to receive the kind of attention to detail and understanding of our needs that we needed. The result was clearly set objectives which they overachieved. The best part of our partnership is the continuous dialogue we have with them where they check details to ensure the kind of quality, we need in representing us correctly. The service has been exceptional thus far and I would whole-heartedly recommend them for projects such as ours where professionalism is key in the delivery of your message to potential clients. On behalf of Bishop Grosseteste University, I’d like to pass on our thanks to the entire team."
Financial strategies limited
"We wanted to find a different way to find new clients and we’d looked at all the lead generation options and quite honestly this has been the best money we have ever spent as a business and to date, we have had 100% buy-in when we’ve gone to meet the companies we’ve been introduced to. Straightahead’s attitude of ‘relationship building’ is refreshing and unique and has worked brilliantly for us. All the appointments are with key decision-makers. We recommend them to a number of our contacts."
"We needed to engage with our customers. However, we didn’t want a ‘hard-sell’ approach, as we know relationship building is the best approach. We value what we do and believe in our products and services – this is the message that we wanted to get across to our customers and we needed to understand how our customers felt about us. We wanted our customers to tell us what they valued and what they wanted, we wanted to help them identify their needs. Straightahead were very clear from the outset that this was their approach and in order to engage professionally with our customers invested the time to understand our offer. They made no bold promises and explained that their approach was about establishing, building, and developing relationships and that steady, incremental business would result from this approach – this is exactly what has happened, and we’ve seen a noticeable increase in our revenue."
