    Hey guys,

    I've been reading BHW for a long time now, but the Offline Marketing forum is the one that really inspires me (thanks, 7878!)

    There are so many great ideas here, I want to try out several. One problem:

    I suck on the phone and ... frankly ... I'm an insomniac who gets all his best work done between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. ... if I have to try to change that to talk to clients all afternoon a) It'll suck for me and b) It'll defeat the POINT of having a business online ... for ME (I know most people don't have this problem, but them's the breaks.)

    So, does anyone know any places where you can outsource sales calls and get results that don't suck? I figure at $399 or $499 per deal closed for ORM, I can afford to be generous when cutting in the person who actually closes the sale. So far, though, I've only seen broker sites that want me to specify some BS hourly wage (not performance-based) so they can get their cut. And I don't really want to put an ad on a totally unrelated site like Craigslist -- I'm looking for a salersperson, not a masked slasher. :cool:

    Again, I'll have qualified leads, so I just need someone to close the deals for me (and the rates will be good.)

    Ideas?

    Yeah, try elance for cold calling. Just make sure you give them a script and work with them on how you want to make the sale.

    We did this for a plastic surgery local seo rental site and it did wonders.

    (Elance is the way to go)

    Great piece of advice...
    Could you share some stats? like what percentage of calls turned into a sale?
