Anyone know of any reputable company that sells DNC-scrubbed lists?  We have some interns starting soon and would like to get them on the phones.

What do you have the interns call on? Strictly appointment setting? I figure they aren't licensed so investments are out of the question.

We try to see if the person is experiencing any pain, confusion, etc..  If so, they pass the call to an FA.  Also use them for seminar/workshop invites.

Do they have to scream "RECO"... just kidding..



What is the benefit to the intern(are you paying them), have thought about using this before, but never really get it off the ground

Yes, in fact, we do have them scream RECO - at the top of their lungs. 


It's an unpaid internship, so what do I care what they get out of it?  Kidding.
 
We try to replicate the experience of being a rookie FA.  Building a book, client interaction, learning about investments, operations, and so on.
