I am looking to finally just do it, hire a cold caller or a team of cold callers (call center). I don't know a damn thing about it. I am hoping people can give tips and pointers in here, which would help others like me out. Some example questions I have are, whats the difference in hiring a call center vs. just a few cold-callers. Or telemarketers? What exactly should I provide and what should they be able to do or provide? ( Such as Should I provide a database of leads, or should they. ) Should I make sure the equipment they use is good (should they use "dialers" or is skype fine?) They pay for their own minutes? Does it matter what telephone number the calls come from? (dont want local companies seeing an overseas number). But not sure how that would work. How do you pay? By appts set, hourly, etc A bunch of questions, either people can answer here which would help out others, or I am also looking for someone to give me some pointers one on one via skype or something. Maybe point us to a pdf/blog guide that can help. Thanks for helping out bhw!
