This resulted in about 25% either giving their verbal consent or promising to return a signed consent form. This generated estimated additional revenue of around £1 million in year one alone equating to a return of £16.70 for every £1 spent on telemarketing.

Pierino Cioffi, Appeals Officer at Oxfam, comments: “Telemarketing has proved to be the ideal way to talk to those supporters who have not responded to us in other ways.”Martin Williams, Marketing Director of The Listening Company, adds: “Telemarketing not only allows us to answer any questions about the Gift Aid scheme but also gives us the opportunity to confirm which supporters are non-taxpayers and hence not eligible to join the scheme. By identifying these individuals Oxfam are able to remove them from future mailings helping them save on costs.”Visit The Listening Company.
