    Hey guys!

    I have my own great converting offers and I am into different niches. Some days ago I had a talk with a Philippine friend of mine from Manila who thinks about opening a VA outsourcing company with some hundreds of workers. A fulltime worker would cost him just around 250 to 300 USD per month (with great English skills). Then I had the idea to employ his VAs for direct selling activities. For example - create a FB profile of a nice lady, add friends, chat with them and tell them that she is doing money online etc. people will ask how it works and then BAM just send them to your sales page and convince them one by one to try it out. But FB is just one example. There are so many dating sites out there, other communities, chats, cold calling via Skype, etc.
    My money making offers are converting great between 150 and 200USD. That would be just two sales per per worker and month to get a positive return. Doesn't sound too hard, right?

    So I will definitely try this out with just 4-5 workers but I would like to hear what you would say about this idea? Or does anyone here have any experience or did something similar before?

    So what do you think? :)

    One of the biggest players in the adult market (Dee from Deecash) has several call centres in the Philippines doing exactly what you're talking about and no doubt there are lots of smaller operations as well. By all accounts it works great as long as you have good scripts and can train your salespeople well - the labour is so insanely cheap. Dee was making 10s of $millions a year just from having his call centre people hawking his own acai product, until they got in deep shit for deceptive rebills. Go for it!

    Yes. It works..There's already member in BHW doing this I forget what his nick already but he did very well on e-whore industries even have his oven office.
    My opinion is you need train your worker well before into this or else you will just lose money on it.

    It's a great idea. I've done the usual landing page chats, but never outsourced it. Really depends on whether or not you have something that CAN be pitched by someone who knows little about it.

    I wonder if he will trade his penthouse luxury lifestyle with a 4x4 with a small window and no view to it.

    OK sounds great. Anyone here with experience in this field how much profit a fulltime VA can make? I have tried a test with two part time VA and the results were positive but I am not sure if they really worked 20h/week. Do you think are ~2-3K$ per fulltime VA/month possible, selling money making products via direct chat? Cheers

    This sounds great. Also planned to open a VA centre in Asia and to let my VAs sell my products trough chat selling.

    Anyone here with experience? Could this easily work?
