If selling products and/or services to other people is very difficult, how much more if you are just setting up face-to-face appointments so that you and the prospect can meet face to and you feel hopeful that both of you will part ways smiling. Before you can ever meet the guy, you have a lot of thoughts going in your head. You might think that that customers of yours will say “no” even before you can open up your mouth and say something. What if he likes the product but doesn’t like the price? What if he is just trying to pull your leg? If person-to-person selling is that challenging, how much more when it comes to b2b to business to business transactions? What if a software company tries to have its sales agents and the decision maker of their client company meet face to face? What would be the outcome of the transactions?
Yes, telemarketing and appointment setting for software companies can be very challenging and very complicated and it takes more than just the knowledge of picking up the phone and calling someone and ask for an appointment. That’s why, most software companies will try to do outsourcing face-to-face appointment setting services to a b2b telemarketing company and let the professional appointment setters or telemarketers of that telemarketing company to do lead generation for them and calling up prospects and ask for appointment.

If selling something is important, appointment setting is more important because this will give any company a chance to generate and nurture sales leads and to arrange meetings for both buyers and sellers that will make give them higher financial gains.
