How to Stop Cold Calling for your Business Gas

I’m sure you are fed up with those annoying phone calls. Good thing there are actually ways that will help you avoid those cold phone calls anytime of the day. With these tips, you will surely have a pleasant business be it day or night. So how to stop cold calling for your business gas?

The first thing you need to do is to make sure that you register with Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and this is actually for free. UK-based companies are not actually allowed to make any unsolicited calls to numbers that are registered on TPS. They are also not permitted to make any marketing calls. This is why you must register your number with TPS.

You should also ask not to include your name on those sales call lists. Bear in mind that businesses are actually using online as well as paper phone books to get those numbers which they could market or sell their services and products. To avoid such things then make sure to ask them not to include your number on the sales call list. This way they will not find you online or even those directories. However, if you must include your number on their info sheet then ask them not to call you for any marketing purposes or even pass your number to anyone. It will also help to make phone calls to those companies that have already called you. Ask them to remove you from their list. These companies should abide by your request and if a written request is needed then you should make one and have it formal and clear.

Since you are dealing with your business then make sure that you have a caller ID. This way you will be able to check who’s calling your place. Legitimate calls are actually most likely to leave messages as compared to those who are just into marketing their business. This way you can delete those unwanted numbers and calls. You can also consider using a call blocking device. CPR Call Blocker and TrueCall Call Blocker will allow you screen those calls. You simply plug it into your device and from there you will be able to see who’s calling you. now with those cold calling, make sure to stay calm and never grab the first offer you will receive. It is important that you never reveal your name, address and your financial records. To make sure if the caller is actually legitimate, make sure to call the company itself and check regarding the call you received. Bear in mind that there are tonnes of scammers out there.

Now if you suspect those cold callings you received are scams, see to it that you report them at once. You can actually report them to TPS (0345 070 0707). The TPS will contact the company and if it is illegal then there will be action taken against them.
