Hi everyone

I was wondering if anyone has outsourced selling advertisement slots on their website using a third party?

I have built a directory and listing of businesses categorized based on location.

I also prepared a list of the businesses and their phone numbers and emails.

I tried calling a few however realized I'm better off hiring someone to do that for me. What's a good website to find people to do that? Which route would you take in outsourcing (preferably to a third world country to reduce cost)

My customers are in the US but I rather hire someone based in India or other English speaking countries.

I would like to pay a percentage and have all ads commission based.

Each listing would cost about $1k for the whole year.

Any thoughts ? Thanks in advance.

You should confront your prospects with proper english speaking salespeople when you want to make contact via phone.
Guess what you would think if you are approached with a high priced advertising offer and the person speak your language with a heavy accent.

proper english speaking

In my experience facility with the English language isn't dependent on skin colour.

Didn't meant to offend anyone, just focused on the statement:
"preferably to a third world country to reduce cost".
My experience is that people living in the country of their target group speak a 'better', in other words 'more real' language than those that don't have the day to day exposure to the foreign language. Although most sales calls are more or less scripted, you feel the difference.
Ok, that's my experience and I will be quit now.
