    So, I currently work in a B2B call center where I've been a dominant force cold calling businesses. I became the top person in the company and was promoted to manager of a department for which I've taken from about $2k/day in sales to about $15k/day with roughly the same amount of salespeople in just a few short months. I'm good...very good on the phone and in leading/managing/motivating others. I've trained some phone-killers and thought I'd also offer to see if I could help out with anybody who's looking to sell their services to businesses. I figure it might just help with some forum reputation here if I could do some critiquing/consulting for some of the members here who might be struggling.

    I'd like to turn my offline skills into a business I can do on the side for some extra income. I'm just not sure what to involve myself with for my own benefit. I found a great thread about ranking up a local site and renting banner space on there for about $400/month which sounded right up my alley, but unfortunately Google doesn't rank sites anymore like the original author had described. Also, I'm not the best at doing small, tedious or menial tasks as I'm more of a big-picture and delegate sort of person.

    I know it might be a bit tacky, but if I can throw my skills out there in the universe, I figure I might stumble upon something.

    Use the skills you have, offer a membership site or start a Udemy course on Cold Calling/Telemarketing.
    You could offer 2/3 courses aimed at beginners, intermediate and super sellers and also offer a course for business managers to get the most from their team.

    Sorry for posting this here instead of replying via PM, but your PM box is too full to accept it.

    It's tough to say without reviewing your pitch or hearing your call, but your numbers are not too bad actually! The majority of a cold caller's job is leaving voicemails, so that's expected. You should have a breakdown of business types and the best days/hours to get a hold of them though. For example, stay away from insurance/financial industries on Mondays/Fridays. Or a good time to get through the gatekeeper at a doctor's office is during their lunch hour when the doctor often answers the phone.

    If you're getting them interested but not closing them, then there is a disconnect somewhere between your sales pitch and your close. You need to think of a smoother transition from what you're doing. The close should come naturally if you do a great, engaging sales pitch. Your goal should be to have them ask you to buy; however, you never want to forget to ask for the sale yourself.

    To answer your question of how I am so successful, here it is: I build rapport, I give an ENGAGING sales pitch, I mitigate all risks and slay objections before they come up, I always ask for the sale, I get them to laugh, I use a "yes" train, and I get their brains to release dopamine through a couple of tricks I've learned through experience like asking them about a win they've had or something they cherish. This allows me into their limbic brain to trigger ACTION, and action means buy.

    I hope that this provides you with some further information. And yes, I am in the U.S.

    What kind of numbers are you doing selling the websites?

    good to hear that actually you have made it and comfortable in the world of offline marketing such as cold calling. it is a well known fact to me that very many people including me have failed or should i say have no confidence and usually give up before trying harder because of frustrations. I believe that very many people would want to partner from you or learn from you. maybe you could open a website which deals with educating and teaching people on that field. I believe that way you will get to many people. thank you. cheers

    BHW literally has all the content/information you need to start a legit offline business. Just remember to focus on branding and make sure people have a reason to go to YOU and not the other guys... Don't worry too much about the start, as you go on you will only improve and get better. Good luck!
