Does anyone suggest another telemarketer out there? I googled telemarketing services and there are tons of Companies. Anyone heard about other Companies?
I agree with Somarco - it is extremely market dependent. I have solid marketers working for me who call one zip code and completely kick ass, then call me after a I give them another zip code and say "this is horrible." I know it's not them - they're the same ones cranking out 2 very high quality leads per hour week after week. Switch zip codes? Now it's a crap shoot. I sometimes have to give them 2 or 3 different areas to find one where it's banging out for them.
I personally still do phenominally well with telemarketed leads - much better than shared but obviously a LOT more effort.
Ok, yea, it will be awhile before you run out of numbers to dial. I lived in Howard County for a about a year. Nice area.
Being about 5-6 weeks in the Health business, I was trying to conduct everything by tel/cpu appointments... I am now mixing it up as well and can definitely see the benefit. Especially since I feel I am finally turning the corner on the learning curve for this business.
Next week I am going to telemarket for a couple hours a day 2-3 times a week just so I know what I should expect from future telemarketers I will be hiring in the future.
Thanks for all your help John, and the input of others on this forum. It has really helped.
