An appointment setter is usually a telemarketer who calls individuals and businesses and encourages them to make appointments to discuss something with a sales rep.

However, in recent times, an appointment setter could also be someone who reaches out to potential or existing customers by using social media, SMS, or other instant communication tools.

The average salary for an appointment setter in the Philippines ranges between $2.50 and $7.00 per hour.

The more experience and skills a person has, the higher the hourly salary rate. 

When you hire appointment setters on the Virtual Staff marketplace, you can also include bonuses in addition to salary. (All of this is easy to manage inside of your dashboard).

For example, you could offer a salary of $4.00 per hour, plus a $5.00 bonus for each appointment your staff manages to set. 

Of course, the actual salary and bonuses you want to pay your appointment setters are entirely your decision, and the above numbers are just examples.

Suppose you want to hire appointment setters in the Philippines. The easiest and safest way to hire appointment setters is by posting a job on VirtualStaff.ph, getting qualified appointment setter applicants, and interviewing and hiring the best people. 

Be sure on the job post to indicate the hourly salary rate, the job role, the work hours, and any bonuses that you offer in addition to the basic salary. 

You can offer a commission and pay it as a bonus on top of the hourly salary rate you pay your Virtual Staff. However, we don’t allow commission-only jobs on VirtualStaff.ph; all employers must offer a basic rate of at least $2.00 per hour. 

To find the best appointment setters, it’s essential you follow the steps outlined below. These will drastically increase your chances of hiring good quality staff. 

Pay an attractive salary

  1. Your goal for outsourcing appointment setting and hiring overseas appointment setter staff is to save costs while at the same time getting good quality people to work for your business. 
  2. Look to save around ⅓ to ¼ (66%-75%) of what the equivalent staff would cost in the USA, and you will be able to hire excellent staff that will be an asset to your company. This means offering perhaps a minimum hourly salary of $4.00 to $6.00 per hour to attract vastly experienced applicants who can do the job to a top notch standard.

Interview the appointment setter job applicants

If your job is voice-based (involved calling), don’t just message applicants and hire them on the spot. Instead, we suggest you schedule an interview from VirtualStaff.ph and interview the staff over an audio or video call.

During the interview, be sure to ask questions about the applicants’ experience as an appointment setter, education background, and other essential things that you feel are essential.

The key is to go in with your eyes open. Understand that it might take some trial and error, and you may or may not have some staff turnover. Ultimately, this is the nature of sales, lead generation, and appointment setting.

Remember to pay the person a fair salary, give incentives for them, so they have a goal to work towards. Provide them with the tools they need to succeed and be sure to provide enough time for your staff to perform. 

Of course, the success of any appointment setting campaign goes beyond the appointment setting staff you hire. You also need to factor in the data and leads you provide, the product or service you sell, the receptiveness of potential customers, and the market’s competitiveness.
