I'm wondering if anyone would care to share a cold caller they have had good success outsourcing too. Ideally, I'd like to find someone who has a proven record of selling SMS and mobile services and is fluent in English.

I just need someone to set appointments for me.

I know this is a long shot, but figured I'd try.

    I have experience in this, caller needs to be strong it is still a viable method to generate business. I will recommend for cold calling it is not yet dead.

      Good cold callers are worth their weight in gold.

      Think about it. What are the chances of someone having a good cold caller and passing the details on to you. But I could be wrong!

      Chances are you'll need to play the numbers games and recruit your own people.

      But I suppose if you don't try, you won't know.

      Good luck in your search

    you won't find a cold caller (Closer) to work for you anywhere! there is not enough money in this for them. But what you can find is a person that is paid an hourly wage just to qualify the lead and see if there is anything to go on!

    Good cold callers are worth paying a hourly rate plus 50% gross.

    I'm about to test this with a few I found on oDesk. I'm not sure how it will turn out but will report back if it's successful. I will be paying them plus I'll give them a % of the sale.

    My company was actually looking into this too, but we figured suck it up and make our own calls to generate meetings which will hopefully turn into sales.

    Sometimes, you just need to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself. Simply use the "In Town" Technique.

    Call up a business and ask for decision maker. Tell them you'll be in town and you want to drop off some information, who is the best manager to ask for? This works great. It also turns into meetings without officially setting up meetings.

    My advice. Save your money, spend a little extra time and do it yourself to make sure you're getting quality calls. Cold calling is very useful if used correct.

    Set small goals of 10 extra calls per day. Knock that goal out of the park then move to 15. Keep going until you can spend more money in other advertising to generate highly qualified leads.

    Best of luck whatever you decide to do.
