Hi all,

We are conducting direct outreach in a targeted industry. As part of our outreach cadence, we are following up on emails by calling prospective sellers. The goal of the call is to schedule a meeting where we can learn more about their business and see if there is a good fit.

Does anyone have experience hiring high quality BDRs to conduct cold calls and schedule meetings? Any suggestions on where to source quality BDRs?

For context, we have tried out 2 BDRs and it hasn't delivered the results we were looking for. They were both sourced from Upwork and for us, the quality just wasn't there to set up a meeting or drive an engaging conversation.

We have seen some great success when it is either myself or my business partner making the call. Just want to see if hiring a high quality BDR allows us to scale this up.

Thanks! Sukh
