The telemarketing sector is growing at the moment with companies experiencing an average annual growth of 6.5% to 8.8%. Businesses are becoming more aware that they need market information and want to decrease customer turnover rates in an economy that is struggling. R&C sees a cyclical pattern in the industry’s long-term growth rates. They don’t anticipate this high rate of growth to continue.
Telemarketing is a fragmented industry with many companies offering varying market shares, size, scope and services. Many companies are general agencies that provide telemarketing and other consulting services. Many companies don’t realize the potential benefits that outsourcing can bring and instead choose to build their own telemarketing service.
R&C believes the biggest threat to the market is new entrants who see a growth opportunity in an ‘#8220â€™ high-growth industry. Existing advertising agencies that want to integrate horizontally and enter new markets will be the most likely entrants. New entrants face the disadvantage of having to switch partners when contracting with telemarketing agencies. R&C also understands that this industry has a steep learning curve, which results in declining unit costs as the firm accumulates more experience with long-term clients.
Rivalry among different telemarketing agencies as stated before is quite intense. Telemarketing is a mature industry with steady growth over the long-term. The largest agencies are often mutually dependent in their jockeying for market share and position. This industry is competitive because of the many telemarketing agencies that are not necessarily ‘general’ or generic.
Buyers will use this as a way to infuse price control and competition in the industry by using the threat that clients might integrate backwards. R&C’â€™s management should always keep this in mind as they offer services or set prices.
Financial ConsiderationsStart-up assets required include expenses and cash needed to support operations until revenues reach an acceptable level. Most of the company’s liabilities will come from outside private investors and management investment, however, we have obtained current borrowing from Bank of America Commercial Investments, the principal to be paid off in three years. A long-term loan through VieilArgent Bank of Richburb will be paid off in ten years.
