3 Reasons to Outsource Cold Calling

With outbound sales rapidly changing across industries, more and more sales leaders are asking whether the old ways of cold calling will keep working in the future. While cold calling isn’t dead, you may need to change the way you run your cold calling to keep it viable in the future.

That’s why more and more companies are outsourcing their cold calling. Outsourcing fixes the supply-side problem of labor in countries like the US, and it also solves cultural issues around cold calling, as long as it’s conducted correctly.

Easier Cold Caller Hiring

Many employers think cold calling is impractical because effective cold callers are hard to find and harder to retain in today’s competitive employment environment. US-based cold callers can demand high wages, and they’re hard to find in the first place. 

The fact is that the US doesn’t have enough qualified people looking for jobs as cold callers. That supply shortage creates obvious issues that outsourcing fixes quite nicely. There are plenty of highly-qualified cold calling experts looking for jobs outside the US right now. 

That’s even more apparent when you look at companies that focus solely on outsourcing. While spinning up your own sales team offshore is intimidating, there are international outsourcing experts that have the logistics all figured out. Even better, those employees are already trained and experienced in cold calling, so all they need to learn are industry and product specifics. 

Cold Calling Culture

Another issue with domestic cold calling is the American culture around cold calls. Americans tend to think that cold calls are rude or ineffective because they’re generally unpopular for B2C sales. But B2B sales is a different world with its own norms and culture, where cold calling is alive and well.

Because of Americans’ misconceptions about cold calling, they’re often unwilling to become cold callers themselves. Even people who apply for cold-calling jobs can balk at the prospect of high-volume calls when actually pressed to perform, which makes them uniquely unsuited to the work.

That’s especially true with volume-based sales and marketing. Volume-based strategies necessarily require your cold callers to make calls in the three digits every day. If your sales team isn’t ready to do that, they might not be fit for the modern cold-calling landscape.

Setting More Meetings with Outsourcing

The biggest reason to move your cold calling offshore is because of the results it’ll get you. Outsourced callers are experts at what they do: setting meetings for your sales team. They’re skilled prospectors who know how to identify key decision-makers, and they know how to move you up that chain to talk to the ones who really matter. 

That speaks to a common misconception about cold calling: you don’t need your cold callers to close deals over the phone with in-depth demos or extended pitches. Glengarry Glen Ross is long behind us. Instead, you should only be relying on your cold callers to set meetings for your full-time sales team.

That’s the kind of specialization that lets your sales team operate smoothly. With cold callers filling their calendars with meetings, your sales team can spend their days focusing on conversations with the decision-makers that matter most.

Salaria has been a game changer for us! We have tried various companies and internal processes to manage a rather difficult lead gen process and they have performed way better than we expected. They adapt to our feedback. They provide clear information. They are always looking for ways to improve. If you are on the fence, just pull the trigger. Salaria will do everything they say and more!

Great company and great people. I am super impressed with our director of account management LP and his team. I have been with them for about 4 months and just signed for a 6 month extension. I have been getting TOO MANY HIGH QUALITY LEADS to manage and am now forced to build out my sales team because of Salaria :) Highly recommended. The cost will pay for itseld quickly.

We started working with Salaria about 10 months ago and they have been able to generate about 60-70 meetings of which 4 deals have closed. I was a bit skeptical before deciding to work with them because I didn’t know if we could effectively outsource part of our sales development strategy. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how well things have gone. We’ve also seen an improvement in conversion rates across the whole team because we started using a lot of the scripts and templates Salaria was using. I have to admit that they've been impressive with how helpful they’ve been from a strategy perspective. Highly recommend these guys!

Salaria did an amazing job helping us build up our pipeline right after we launched in the USA a year ago. They’ve absolutely surpassed our expectations and have consistently improved performance over time. We’ve been working with Elizabeth and she has been instrumental in helping us craft a strategy that improves conversion for all of our reps. It took us about a month or so to get ramped up but once we were up and running, I was surprised by how fast they delivered results. I believe they book their first meeting for us within a week of starting. We’ve had to change things up from time to time to keep us on track but Elizabeth and the Salaria team have been great all along the way.
