I've been working on my biz for over a year and do to various setbacks it's taken a lot longer than expected but I'm getting to the point where I'm almost ready to launch and my intention was to start cold calling and iron out that process and then hire a telemarketer I could train to work from their home. I would then continue to hire telemarketers as the business (hopefully) grows. The problem is that I'm pretty much out of money. I was screwed out of over $13k in legitimate affiliate commissions that would have made things a heck of a lot easier. I'm probably going to get offered a job in the near future which will pay me fairly well and after some training I'll be able to work from home. Even though I'll be working from home it doesn't mean I get to jerk off all day and the job is fairly stressful. It's not reasonable for me to be able to make calls while I'm working this job. I could probably get away with a few calls here and there but not the volume (100+ daily) I need to grow the business. My product or service is legit and I'm looking to create a long term relationship with the businesses I work with so I'm looking for a company instead of an individual that provides rock solid sales & customer service. I would be willing to pay hourly + commission. Has anyone had any success in terms of outsourcing customer service AND sales?
