    The company I used to work for had thousands of customers and put most of its advertising resources towards telelmarketing so I know it works. Now im on my own and for the second morning I forced myself to do it for a bit but I hate it and have no results. Its free and I know it works but I cant make myself do it. Ug !

    In the USA there are huge fines being levied for calling people on the No Call list. Does BC have that yet?

    there are many companies you can outsource this too. i feel like you do, i hate working the phone and i dont want to loose any employees because they dont like working the phones either.

    so, we hire an outside agency, tell them how many leads we can handle per day, they do the calling and fax over the lead list. they work with us to set up a script.

    something you may want to consider.

    there are 'specialist in the green industry'. companies like americalist or yes marketing. Or just check your local yellow pages for a company local to you. or type 'telemarketing service' in your browser and you'll get a lot to choose from.

    Hi trying 2b organic,

    How about making up some flyers or door hangers and going out on the weekends to hand them out? Just a thought, it seems to be a popular option.
