How much would you pay to get an appointment to do a bid?

How much would you pay a marketing company, for them setting up appointments for your cleaning business to do bids/estimates on cleaning jobs? The price is per appointment. This is better than a lead because you pay per appointment with a building manager.

I don't think

I don't think I would pay anything. Is there a way to get a refund if you don't get the job? Put an ad in the paper, do cold calls, anything. But to pay for something like that. I don't know.

A marketing firm is going to have to spend at least as much time as you do getting that appointment.
They can't make money selling that slot to just one person.
If someone called you asking if they could send potential employees to you how would you feel?
"How much will it would cost me?", is the first question.
How were they screened?
Why didn't they call me themselves?

I'd bet a whole nickel that a cold call from a business will be at least ten times more effective than one from a marketing firm.
