Hi guys, I have a few different services that I have been trying to sell to local businesses. I usually try to pitch web design as my entry level service and upsell them on other things after I've landed them. I've primarily been cold calling and despite hating it with a passion, I have been able to land a couple of clients this way. The problem that I've run into is that I have suspended my marketing/calling efforts as I've worked with these clients, hence the frantic need to go back to calling several days later. What I would really like to do is hire someone to actually do the calling. I would like to focus more on the SEO services as it is the higher ticket service that I can charge a recurring fee on and of course could take in fewer clients rather than more since I pitch the websites in the neighborhood of $500. I don't have a massive budget to throw at this, but I'm willing to spend some cash on it for a couple of months to see if I can get things moving in the right direction by selling the bigger ticket services rather than chasing new web design clients. I've heard that some people are doing pretty well by using call centers to bring in new clients. I'm contemplating hiring a few people to make the first round of calls for me. Is anyone else using call centers to sell services in this way? If so, do you have them calling 30-40 hrs a week for you consistently? Do you find them to be as or more effective than hiring say a "sales person?"
