RE: Does anyone know of a lower cost solution for contracted telemarketing?
Would everyone please stop asking for a low cost solution to everything!!
Are you low cost???? Do you sell based on the lowest cost? If you do then you are a seen by prospects as a valueless commodity and can't keep customers loyal, nor get them to repeat or recommend you.
Nope, you don't sell your services or solutions for low cost because you know its not cost, its real ROI that you are selling v competition. So...why would you shop for a telemarketing company based on the lowest cost instead of "do they have the best sales/closing skills?"
Look for the company that can get an instant "hey, thats me, I want to know about this" as the result of the 1st sentence in the telemarketing call. Thats called selling not dialing for $. Use that criterion to find and select a telemarketing company, not simply the commodity approach of low cost. You are, after all, entrusting them with doing your selling so remember that and search accordingly with that as your guide not the lowest cost.
Thats worth paying for because it gets the results you want - ideal prospects who have the cash, can have the authority to buy and the cash to do so.
