    How do any of you cope with the new laws. What are the new laws exactly on telemarketing, and how can I get phone numbers for my area?
     
  2. Don't know the telemarketing laws but for phone #s use the Cole directory at your library. You can view phone numbers arranged by address.

    I could never do cold calling to people. I don't know why, but I just couldn't. I think the reason is that I think back to all the telemarketing calls that I get and people want me to sign up for stuff and I just tell them to send me the stuff in the mail and let me look at the literature. So that is what I do for potential customers, is send them information in the mail. If they like what they see, then they will sign up.
