B2B APPOINTMENT SETTING
B2B Appointment Setting Services That Drive Opportunity
Quality B2B Leads are essential to business development and driving revenue opportunities for your company. Articulating your value proposition and addressing the challenges your prospects face on a daily basis in their business are vital to reaching your prospects in a meaningful way. If your sales team is having difficulty generating or spending too much time researching qualified B2B sales leads, outsource time-consuming B2B lead generation activities to an experienced team.
- Selecting the right vendor – Successful vendors have a professional, experienced staff and management team.
- Having experience in the industry – This is a favorable strength but not a necessity. Substantial business experience is critical, with a staff and management who have experience in multiple industries. Even if past experience is outside of your company’s industry, the knowledge and expertise gained from those experiences can help to successfully execute lead generation campaigns by drawing on tactics, strategies and results from campaigns in other industries. Business experience is key, then applying it to current campaigns is a great benefit from which to draw.
- Having the basic foundation to develop a successful campaign – Technology, access to appropriate calling data, knowledgeable and sophisticated calling agents, and qualified management oversight are all key factors to successful appointment setting campaigns.
- Expand on the experience of the management team – Working with a company that has executed thousands of B2B appointment setting campaigns over 20+ years is an enviable benefit. Our Team of skilled vendors have built their experience with a wide variety of industries and businesses. Intelemark's experienced management team has the ability to glean information from one industry and apply it to another.
Consistent effort and communication with current customers and prospects are key in effective B2B lead generation strategies. Focus on key services including:
B2B APPOINTMENT SETTING
ACCELERATE YOUR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT – FILL YOUR SALES PIPELINE WITH QUALITY LEADS
Quality leads are essential to business development. But even more important – a consistent volume of quality leads is vital to fill your sales pipeline with the right people, the decision-makers your sales team want to reach.
Intelemark’s B2B appointment setters are experienced business professionals who set appointments or generate B2B sales leads by judiciously identifying whether the contact is a real prospect for your company.
We base this on the qualification parameters that you set. Quality, not quantity is Intelemark’s commitment to you.
If the prospect is a truly qualified lead, our agent then schedules the prospect for a face-to-face or telephone appointment at a designated time.
It may sound easy, but it is not. It is a time-consuming process that, when not done properly, results in wasted time for your sales team. When a sales team is not equipped with truly qualified leads, sales and revenue is surely impacted.
B2B LEAD GENERATION
OUTSOURCE TIME CONSUMING LEAD GENERATION – ACTIVITIES TO AN EXPERIENCED, PROFESSIONAL TEAM
If your sales team is having difficulty generating B2B sales leads, or they’re spending too much time researching and hunting for the right, qualified prospects, it may be time to consider outsourcing your lead generation function.
B2B Sales lead generation is like B2B appointment setting but with one major difference: you still set the level of qualifications, and we still articulate your value proposition, but instead of setting a timed appointment, the prospect agrees to take a call over a broad window of time.
The ability to engage with qualified prospects is reliant upon providing value and relevant information to them. Addressing the challenges and issues your prospects encounter in their businesses on a daily basis with valuable information will entice them to engage with you.

Healthcare lead generation and appointment setting is an art form that Intelemark has perfected over the past 10 years since our CEO came to Intelemark. Murray Goodman, current Intelemark CEO, spent over 15 years selling into hospitals and clinics, overseeing large sales organizations that targeted hospitals, clinics and physician practices, and consulting with healthcare organizations as well as companies that marketed to hospitals, group practices, and clinics. It is those years of experience that provide the foundation for the expertise Intelemark provides to its clients.
Our level of experience and success dealing with both sides of the healthcare equation allows us to provide a unique perspective to our clients who seek to penetrate the healthcare lead generation and appointment setting space. Our years of experience allow us to craft the appropriate messaging required in a healthcare lead generation and appointment setting campaign. Intelemark provides mature, experienced, and qualified agents who are fluent in the nuances of the industry.
In addition to the healthcare industry, our experience drives revenue growth opportunities in the technology industry as well.

Before we ever pick up the phone to make our first prospecting call, we have already spent hours understanding your offering, your brand, your business model, your message, and your market. Our experience team of professionals is an extension of your team. When we contact the prospect, we will deliver a message that holds their attention. With information pertinent to their business and the challenges they face in their industry, the relevancy of your company’s offerings results in their willingness to listen to the phone call. Our B2B appointment setting goals are to ensure your prospect is qualified and committed to speak to you at the specified time.
Intelemark’s B2B appointment setters set appointments or generate B2B sales leads by prudently identifying whether the contact is a real prospect for your company who is truly interested in speaking with your sales team and potentially purchasing your product or service. This determination is based on the qualification parameters set by you, not predetermined by a “one-size-fits-all” standard campaign.
When we work with you, our team is fully immersed in learning your business and industry. We understand your criteria for a qualified lead. We understand exactly with whom you need to speak, and we find that highly qualified lead for your sales team. You set the criteria and Intelemark finds the qualified prospect that fits your requirements.
Results are variable because many critical factors exist. It is important to understand if the vendor you choose to work with has the proper skills, knowledge, and expertise to execute successful B2B appointment setting campaigns on behalf of your company.
To prepare your company for success and evaluate vendors you are considering, ask the following questions:
- How compelling is your messaging?
If your message needs work to improve it, is the vendor you are considering up for the job? This is extremely important. The wrong messaging or a weak message can devalue the products and services you are offering.
- How competent are the agents that will be representing your company?
The experience of the agents who will be on the frontline of your appointment setting campaigns is a critical success factor that should not be overlooked. Simply stated, if a vendor you are considering has a staff of professionals lacking significant business experience, chances are this vendor experiences high turnover. This is not beneficial for current and future campaigns you are implementing.
- Do the vendor and its agents protect your brand identity at all costs?
This cannot be stressed strongly enough. Your brand and its reputation are two of your company’s most valuable assets. It takes years to build a great reputation and only moments to destroy it. Any vendor that you choose to represent your brand must act as an extension of your team and must understand this exceptionally important point.
Ultimately it is the marketplace that determines the success of a campaign. A skilled and knowledgeable vendor utilizes the tools they have in order to produce successful results.
- Appropriate type of oversight.
- Understand how the data is performing.
- Listen to and make appropriate adjustments based on agent feedback.
- Understand and make appropriate adjustments according to what the market tells us.
When all this aligns, you should be able to see a significant ROI for your campaign.
