    Well guys I'm excellent on the phone, know how to get around gatekeepers and can handle and turn objections.

    Now the bad, i have no idea about creating websites, delivering seo or orm services.

    Are there any third party sites where I can do freelance appointment setting with fair commission? Some said I should work for real estate agents setting appointments for agents but my small town has no need and or they're scared of me stealing prospects.

    What should someone do when their skills on the phone don't match their ability to deliver quality services?

    Located in USA worked for financial sector previously if that helps.

    Learn how to deliver quality services :willy:

    If you really just want to do phone sales then finding someone locally may be your best bet but you will need to know how to track sales.

    IMHO opinion you would be doing yourself a disservice by just telemarketing.

    My advice to you is searching local web designers or seo providers(or any other service) and get a ,,trial" period of time to show your skills. If you are good and you get clients they will keep you for sure. I need someone like you, but I think we are not in the same country:)

    Should I try to focus on agreements by which I get paid per appointment. I can book appointments all day long but it would be up to the service provider to explain the packages and close the sale. I don't wanna lose payment because the service provider can't close in person.

    I think the best thing you can do is to team up with some local services provider. Or with few. For example - try to find both Web designer and SEO company. That way you would be able to split test which is working better for you. Or even better - find 2 of each. That way you would be able to find out if one of the companies isn't paying you all the commissions you have earned, if there are too big differences between the convertions rates of the leads you send to the two companies. And after that stay with the one which makes more sense. Or try to find another one and do the same. Until you find a company that gives you fair prices and that pays you what you earned.

    Best regards,
    Axeny

    I could use you, If you really are good on the phone I run employment agency online and we offer around 5k per a closed deal. It's 90% b2b if your interested let me know. It's one of the largest recruiting agencies in the USA. It's legit but tedious and you are dialing all day and on the phone all day. PM me for details

    Find someone that you'd be happy to purchase services off yourself. Team up.. Ask for a discount as you'll be sending multiple leads their way (hopefully).

    Its all about outsourcing my friend. Keep in mind having the mouthpeice is the most important thing when it comes to business. You can ALWAYS outsource work. Being a salesman is a gift of god . I myself have the same skill! You can't be taught to be a salesman , you are born with it,
