Cumbria Wildlife Trust

Cumbria Wildlife Trust has used QTS for a variety of membership recruitment and fundraising campaigns since 2007. QTS has always given us good advice on which campaigns are working and are not afraid to say if something isn’t. The administration staff are incredibly helpful and very efficient and our members often tell us that...

In the short time I have been working with QTS I have found all staff to be very attentive and happy to customise their administration to meet our particular needs. They are also very proactive, accessible and willing to make necessary changes at very short notice. Our new members have been receiving calls from...

Friends of the Elderly

QTS ran a successful thank you/welcome campaign for new supporters of Friends of the Elderly, which worked really well. The warm and understanding approach of the callers was appreciated by those who were called, and whilst the campaign did not involve a direct ask for donations they were able to add value by capturing...

RHS

During a time of increased scrutiny from within Sector and with all the media attention telemarketing has been receiving, I have always felt complete confidence in QTS.

Maximising donor benefits

The foundation of good telephone fundraising is not maximising the donations that you receive at the expense of losing supporters after a single gift. The real key to success is building long term relationships that bring benefits to both parties. In the best cases, the donor will feel uplifted by the relationship and enjoy...

Taking a respectful approach to fundraising

There’s no avoiding the fact that, at the moment, telephone fundraising has had a lot of bad press. As is the case with virtually every kind of business in the world, there will always be less than scrupulous people operating in the industry. Here at QTS we’ve spent many years building up a strong...
