Appointment Setting Company Question

edited April 2012 in Sales
I am interested in retaining the services of a B2B appointment setting company. I was wondering what people would choose , a pay-for-performance based call center. Or a tradional hourly rate center. I notice positives and negatives about both and I am looking for advice from people who have used either. Also does anyone know what the average price per appointment is? Thanks so much in advance.

    This is a great way of generating leads for yourself and your sales people. I have used both hourly and pay per lead. Both have good advantages but it really comes down to the overall quality of the center you are dealing with. Some centers sacrifice quality for quantity, and will charge per lead. While others have a hourly cost attached, but will provide top notch quality.

    Thank you for the response. Is there anyone that you would suggest?  Either pay-per lead or hourly, or perhaps both? Thanks again for the help.

    I am looking for 15 min. meetings with decision makers or owners of companies.I am not selling them anyhing and  have my own list of chamber of commerce members that are already familiar with my services. My last company, had a lower rate of securing the appt then I did when I did it myself.  I was thinking I was getting a real professional and someone that could improve my numbers.  WRONG.  All I got was a bunch of "send information" requests.
