Hey Folks, My telemarketing operation is scheduled to begin next week. I already have a couple of guys on board and could be looking at a couple more coming in as well for the first phase. I will be focusing on the well known "free website for hosting method". My plan is to expand and sell more advanced services once this portion of the operation is successful. I already have a lead source that can generate over 1000 leads a week from the U.S and also created a script that got great feedback from the telemarketers and is optimized to turn cold leads into warm ones. I'll probably write down an agreement with specifications of what I am offering to all the new clients so there are no misunderstandings down the road and my website building team is also set. I've already read and taken notes from the larger threads that talk about this method and have tweaked my strategy accordingly. My expectations are for each telemarketer to be bringing in between 3-5 "sales" per day which considering that the daily call volume should be of about 150-200 calls ends up translating to between a 2%-3% conversion rate. I think that is a reasonable expectation for this type of offer although please correct me if you think my numbers are off. The base plan is for telemarketers to close the sales on the phone and then send the clients my way (via email) so I can go over the technical details with the client (nothing fancy just the necessary hosting sign-up and domain purchasing instructions). I think that covers what I have done so far. Any feedback from someone that is already spending cash on this particular approach to selling free websites or payed websites or even just sales-intended telemarketing would be appreciated.
