What is your cold calling set up?

Hi everyone, just a couple of quick questions.

Does anyone here use skype exclusively for their cold calling? It seems like a fairly inexpensive way of making a high quantity of calls. I've only used skype with family members, is it a good quality for making phone calls?

My other question is regarding the headset you use to make your calls. Again, the more inexpensive the better, but I want one with a good sound quality both ways. Does a standard logitec headset or something like that do the job?

Thanks for your help

    If you really want to be on fire, get yourself the following:
    Google Voice number and App on your smartphone
    Call Fire auto dialer ($2 an hour)
    Excel sheet of leads pulled from infofree.com
    I used to use a Logitech headset from Walmart but I got better quality just with my Iphone.

    You can go through 60-90 numbers an hour with this setup.

      I am setting up a system. I am wondering how this setup works since callfire works only on computers?

    Thanks for the advice, unfortunately Google Voice is a paid service where I'm located, in the UK.

    Similarly infofree.com isn't a UK service. I've been using the Yellow Pages and going through manually. I'm sure if I expand I could pay someone a small fee to do this task for me, but if anyone has any free lists in the UK that would be awesome!

    Get Mobile Renegade, it's for sale in the WSO area for $37. It scrapes YB UK listings and shows you who has mobile sites and who doesn't. Watch the video and read the reviews.

    I am using skype with a low end headset. It is the cheaper alternative, but I admit it is much slower than other setups.
