I don't recommend you to create your own telemarketing or callcenter, you should better hire an existing call center, you will save a lot of money in marketing research, they already have the list of possible clients narrowed by age, economic status, area, etc...
Let them do the work for you and save money and optimize your resources.
Hope it helps.
I agree - you'd be better off developing a solid web presence
The catalog and what BDS said a solid web presence is likely your best bet. You'll have a hard time selling what are essentially visual goods over the phone.
Problably you can explain me a little more. Why should I hire a company to do the work instead of me doing it? Isn't expensive if I hire someone else than doing it myself? Well, let me explain. The call center is not in the US, I have everything ready to start, right now what I'm doing is forwarding all my calls to the call center, but I still don't recieved the calls I'm expecting from the advertisement I have, like I said I have the people to make the calls, but still don't have the list I'm looking. Do you know Avon, Herba life, Omnilife? do you know how the work? well, is something similar, the only things is, that this less complex, we don't have a pyramid, you buy whatever you have sold, without investing nothing else but your catalog. I'm trying to show you the pic, so you can understand my needs and hope to get info. Thanks!
There are telemarkeing lists that you can purchase from tlemarketing firms. A search engine such as Google should give you some names.

I am on the shoe and clothing biz, import and export. We distribute our own goods to people that want to start a home base bussiness, or sell with catalog. Now I am trying to open a telemarkenting but I can't find listings for new customers. Where can I find those listings?
