In this article, we will discuss when outsourcing is the right move for you, the different types of lead generation services, and then we will list the top 5 lead generation companies in their specific field in the USA. 

(Feel free to skip to the list if you know exactly what you’re looking for.)

Why outsource B2B lead generation?

Why outsource lead generation? Why not just do it yourself? 

There are various reasons why outsourcing might work for you and one of the biggest is that when a lead generation company finds qualified prospects for you, it allows you time to close more sales and focus on your business. 

Studies also show that outsourcing lead generation is 43% more efficient than generating leads in-house because lead generation companies have more expertise (source

Here are just 3 reasons why outsourcing lead-gen is a good idea… If you would like more reasons, please read this article: 10 Reasons Why You Should Outsource Lead Generation. 

1. You will save more money.

According to Glassdoor, the average salary of hiring a sales development representative is $48,418.00 a year. This means that you will be paying $4,034.00 on average per month. 

Outsourcing lead generation services is 63% cheaper than hiring someone in-house; This is based on hiring, for example, a BDR from San Francisco, whose annual salary is over $56,000.00.

On top of this, you might also need to pay bonuses, benefit costs, such as medical and training costs. 

Other costs that you might also incur when hiring an SDR is :

  • Employer taxes
  • Software licenses
  • Management and admin costs
  • Training costs
  • Human resources 
  • Data costs 

You might also need to rent or buy extra office furniture, computers, and not to mention things like extra milk, coffee, or tea if this is something that you offer to your employees. 

2. You won’t need to worry about training someone new.

Training someone in-house takes time. On average most trainees take at least three months to really find their footing. And in some cases, it might take even longer for your trainee to develop the skills they need to be proficient in your business. 

By outsourcing a professional prospecting team, you won’t need to spend valuable time training up someone new. 

3. Close deals faster

When you outsource a lead generation agency, you are hiring a team of professionals who dominate their niche. Which inevitably means that your number of leads will increase.

If you are a startup company, you can’t afford to waste time because time equals money. Therefore when you hire done-for-you-lead generation services, you are allowing your business to flourish from the start.

The best part is that these leads are valid leads that are checked before going to the sales department. So there is no time-wasting, just genuine nurtured prospects which will lead to sales. 

What type of lead generation would be best for your business? –Outbound vs Inbound

This depends on your needs, but at Salesbread we always suggest a mixture of inbound and outbound

Why? 

Well when it comes to outbound, you can generate immediate leads. Telemarketingemail marketing, and even social selling on Linkedin for example can get an immediate response. 

Whereas content marketing, SEO, and social media marketing can take time to build an audience. 

This is why both options are needed in order to get your brand name out there. 

For example, at Salesbread we use both methods. We started aggressively with content marketing early this year and it has taken about 9 months for our site to be on the first page of Google. This is with 2 published articles per week, along with intensive keyword research and informative articles. 

Inbound marketing takes time, but it’s also worth it. We have managed to double our traffic over the past few months, and have had a few sales calls from clients who have found us on Google.

We also use outbound methods such as cold email campaigns, and this too has proved to be very effective. 

Therefore, our advice is to make use of both, in this way you will be getting immediate qualified leads, as well as a build-up of a long-term following.
