    I tried this in spring 2000 for lawn fert programs. We paid by the hr and they generated leads economically.

    At the same time we did direct mail. I closed maybe 30-33% of the dm while I was closing some miniscule single digit # from the telemarketing.

    Since I have to do more than sell I didn't even bother to estimate the last ones I got cuase it would have taken time away form dm estimates and other important management tasks.

    Maybe with a sales staff on commision that has nothing to do but hound people it might work but not for me.

    Well, there you go. It sounds like they're junk leads. Which might explain why they're reasonably priced.
