Talcum Powder Campaign Lead Retention and Follow-up Service

For many years, people used talcum powder without any issues, but talcum powder has more recently been associated with ovarian cancer, mesothelioma, and other types of cancer. Since 1999, the American Cancer Society has recommended that women who regularly use baby powder in their genital area use cornstarch-based baby powder instead of talc.

Reuters published an investigation into thousands of pages of Johnson & Johnson memos, internal reports, and other confidential documents on December 14, 2018. The material had been released in a 1999 case that uncovered that while Johnson & Johnson’s raw talc and finished powders tested positive for small amounts of asbestos from at least 1971 until the early 2000s, the company kept the information hidden from regulators and the public. In the wake of this news, many lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson.

Do I Need A Talcum Powder Campaign Lead Retention and Follow-up Service?

Potential talcum powder clients do not always choose the first law firm they make contact with. A number of issues with your own handling of these cases could end up costing you potential clients.

Slow response time is a very common problem, but other issues could include inadequate follow-up, unavailability, bad phone etiquette, or a simple lack of confidence in the law firm. ICE understands how to speak to potential clients and maintain their interest in working with a law firm even when they still have reservations about filing a lawsuit.

We are not just an answering service. We will work with you to build lasting relationships and deliver actual clients, not just leads.

ICE utilizes industry-leading technology so you can trust that common human errors will not derail a potential client lead. We understand the finesse that can be required in converting talcum powder victims into actual clients and will take a very relaxed, but focused approach.

Areas of Talcum Powder Retention Campaigns We Handle

ICE can provide you with a wide array of valuable services that include the following:

  • Overflow Call Handling — One of the biggest advantages of working with ICE is that we can be your backup if all the phone lines at your law firm are busy. Instead of getting a busy signal, a person contacting your law firm will instead be connected to one of your agents, who can begin the intake process.
  • Web lead follow-up — It is likely that your current website has a basic contact form that enables a person to enter their personal contact information and briefly describe their case. Many talcum powder victims are likely to fill out several of these forms after visiting multiple law firm websites, and it can often be the firm that responds first will ultimately land the client. With ICE we can immediately respond the moment a person submits their contact form.
  • Live Call Transfer — You will always risk losing a phone call the moment you place a person on hold, so ICE can help you avoid that problem by always having calls transmitted to live agents as soon as possible. Such a feature is an immeasurable benefit to law firms where phone lines are always busy with calls and it may be difficult to quickly answer urgent calls.
  • Follow up on your internet chats — Talcum powder victims will use the free online chat services of law firm websites to get answers to basic questions. While it is nice to provide valuable information to these people, ICE knows how to use a web chat session to transition into a meaningful discussion about legal representation. We can help convert website visitors into actual clients.
  • Ability to schedule sign-ups for qualified cases — ICE understands that aggressively pursuing sign-ups comes with consequences that can often include a talcum powder victim deciding to work with a different law firm. We understand that some people need time and space to feel comfortable before moving forward with their legal case, and our agents can help people take the necessary steps when they are truly ready to do so.
  • Follow up on missed calls/hang-ups — If a talcum powder victim calls your law firm and simply hangs up when their call is not answered within a certain number of rings, you will not have to worry about that call being completely missed with [firm-name]. We have the ability to promptly call people back, and our experience has shown that doing so immediately creates an impression with people that their cases are important to your firm and greatly increases the chances of them becoming clients.
  • Ability to sign claimants on behalf of your firm — ICE is able to secure clients through our electronic signing technology. We do far more than generate leads, as we can often get clients to take the next steps soon after we begin speaking to them.
  • Follow up on leads that the firm gave up on (“lost leads”) — There are many leads that law firms have to give up on because of numerous issues, but ICE knows how to resurrect seemingly lost leads. We know how to reconnect with people and then provide important updates that can demonstrate why your firm is capable of handling their case. The personalized attention we provide goes a long way in retaining many clients.

With ICE, you will benefit from the ICE Active Lead Program that gives you daily reporting. Our agents can follow up as frequently as you desire and can do so for extended periods of time.

In addition to handling phone calls and online messages from talcum powder victims, we assist with a number of other online and technical concerns. ICE will work to help your law firm have the most efficient website possible.

ICE prides itself on its transparency, which allows you access to every single phone call we handle for your law firm. You also get to choose which parts of intake conversion you want us to handle, and we will always work to create meaningful connections with talcum powder victims who are often dealing with significant amounts of stress and confusion.
