A friend of mine at an indy firm is looking into having other people call for him(outside companies) because he is a wuss… Has anyone used this before? Results? Suggestions:?

Is he also a wuss about posting a question on an online forum?  This thread reminds me of the “girlfriend in Canada” routine.

Actually guy from the “no sales dept”… All of the people I know in the industry has never hired an outside company to call for them, so I told my buddy (LPL, got some email from this company) that I know people have hired cold callers and paid them an hourly wage plus bonuses for setting appts… But nobody I know has every used a company… So I was trying to find out if anybody has…(I think it is a waste of time to hire out, especially if like me you have time to do it yourself, they want to charge like $1.50/dial almost, that is crazy to me to pay that)…

Heck, I might do it for 1.50 a dial, uhhhmm nope.  Well actually if you did do the dials I think it works out to making between 6 and $8 a call, so while it costs alot, it probably is worth it.

My team brought on an intern to set appointments for Business retirement plans. There are certain FINRA rules you have to follow if they aren't registered. The kid sucked, and it took a lot of time to train him and actually get him up to speed. Even after an extensive investment of time and training to where he could actually make the calls we still didn't make very many appointments. It's hard to find people with talent, and even if you do it won't take them long to realize that they aren't being paid well for what they are doing.  If you were going to hire someone, I would go after someone who already has call center experience that is in school and needs a part time job.
