Dear Liz, Shawn and Kevin,
What an incredible, truly incredible in my opinion, outreach job Quabbin Mining Company did for building enthusiasm and positive feelings toward our Chamber, the North Quabbin Chamber of Commerce, located in Athol, MA.
We asked for Elizabeth Hardison’s help with following-up on a mailing we had done. Honestly, I was concerned to have others call “my” members, as I didn’t want to ostracize anybody or run the risk of a member receiving an obnoxious, droning “sales call” during which your name is completely butchered and the caller is completely uninterested in the callee. That would be awful and an inaccurate reflection of how we feel about our members; we respect them and their time and need to treat them courteously at all times. However, I desperately needed the ACU’s Call Center’s help, and was convinced by Board Members who had worked with your Call Center that Liz’s team would be pleasant, personable and professional.
Wow, were they! I received several calls from our Board Members, Ambassadors and Chamber Members with “Oh, Rachel was so lovely,” and “I was surprised at how pleasant they were on the phone, and they got me thinking about whom I could refer to you and these names came to me…” Your Call Center just did a stellar job.
Not only that, but Liz kept in touch daily via phone and sent me detailed reports with results, quoted responses, and updates to my listings – just a fantastic job all around. I was so astonished that my mere “thank you” seemed too lame and so I whipped up my top-secret espresso brownies and picked up some bright flowers and dropped them off to the team. Upon completion of all the call-backs, she sent me a comprehensive report in a spreadsheet format which was easy to download into my database.
The way the calls were made helped move us forward; our job is to support and strengthen the community, both for profit and not-for-profit organizations, and so when we do our job well both companies and residents benefit. We are extremely impressed and grateful for the work that Quabbin Mining Company did for us and our community.
