I'm a firm believer that telemarketing isn't worth the time. Your best bet is an effective marketing campaign that gets your name and what you do out in front of as many people as possible. To quote a tired cliche'....if you build it, they will come.

I for one will not do business with any company that contacts me. I know what my needs are, and if I require your services, I will seek you out.

Now, on the other hand, companies such as ours help identify those leads and drive them to you, without expensive marketing campaigns or other shot-in-the-dark approaches that many times only serve to eat away at your bank account for little or no return.

With us, you only pay for phone calls we generate from people who are actively looking for your services.

Telemarketing in Los Angeles in illegal but I still get calls all the time. Before it was illegal I had a automated system calling and had little success.

I have had most success with flier's. I think it also depends on your service or what your selling.

I agree with singlemom58. I know I usually try to find a way to get off the phone when telemarketers call. Try weekly emails or coupons to your customers or even coventions. I think there is a big one coming up in Las Vegas next month... Even sites like Facebook have gotten us alot of customers.

I am on teh do not call list and that has cut the number way down. If they do call I politely say no the first time.
If they call back I will engage them in conversation until they realize there is nothing to do but hang up on me.

That usually solves the problem. If it does not they get reported to the Better Business Bureau.

Telemarketing is also a good source to advertise because you can promote your product here to just one phone call but you have need some contacts to advertisement of any kind of product easily.

Telemarketing

I have tried telemarketing over the years (three times) and found it a waste of money. Nothing beats face to face marketing.

Thumbs down Telemarketing

We have had little success with telemarketing the few times when we have dabbled in it. It's so.... invasive I think to today's consumer. Even when calling semi-warm leads it's a hard sell. I think the best bang for your marketing buck is to be found on the internet. There are so many free or really cheap ways to generate leads online that telemarketing seems like we would be wasting our budget and creating bad karma.

Back in the day I did a little telemarketing myself, calling off a list. My favorite call (though not at the time) was a man who said to me: "Dolly do I call your home?".... "Ummm, no sir" ... "Ok, then please don't call mine." Can't get much clearer than that!!

Telemarketing is a superb advertising way in which you can easily showcase your own product by making just one call but you get require a number of acquaintances to be able to advertise involving almost any product effortlessly.
