Webinar Explains How to Turn Unused Calls into Revenue
On Wednesday, March 2, Scott Richards, chairman of DIAL800 and CEO of Reconnect Research, will lead a free webinar where you can learn how to "Turn Your Unused Calls into Revenue."

More than 5 billion misdialed, incomplete, disconnected and inbound (MIDI) calls are made each month costing carriers millions of dollars. Reconnect Research has developed a technology that connects MIDI calls to market research surveys. Until now no one benefited from MIDI calls - the caller didn't connect to their intended party and the carrier didn't profit from the telephone traffic. But with Reconnect Research's solutions:
  • Consumers - A positive alternative to Robocalls, consumers can share their opinion and get a reward
  • Carriers - Profit rather than lose from MIDI telephone traffic
  • Researchers - Get quality data at a lower cost with faster data collection and analysis

During this webinar, Richards will:

  • Explain who benefits from inbound telephone MIDI calls
  • Discuss steps you can take to begin monetizing your misdials
  • Share one carrier's case study results.

The webinar will take place from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. To attend, register here
