    WARNING: THIS IS NOT AN EASY, NO SWEAT, QUICK MONEY DEAL. IN FACT IT MAY BE THE MOST DIFFICULT SALES PROSPECT EVER POSTED ON THIS SITE!

    I have a company that requires massive outgoing sales calls with very low conversion rates, but the commission paid is $12,500 on every lead that my own sales team can consequently close so you don't have to convert many to make a really decent amount of money.

    The approach is pitching the production and fulfillment of 30 minute infomercials aired on major US TV networks. The company has been established for 35 years and is currently in production with primary national clients... so this is as solid as it can get. The problem is that we need to get past the receptionists and to the decision makers, like VPs of Marketing, heads of ad agencies, etc. in order to make the pitch. That's so incredibly difficult that I've had 6 people go into this with the greatest possible enthusiasm and extensively thorough training in the last few months and after a while they all quit because they're getting nowhere. It can be done as the company is producing right now and has been doing this for decades, but the new lead generation is getting to the point where it's so inordinately difficult that the company is on the verge of throwing their hands in the air and just sticking with their own direct contacts for future business. I don't want to see the company not even try to get new clients since the amount of money in play is considerable. They can produce an infomercial every couple of weeks so at full blast the commission payable would be over $300K per year. I'm grasping at straws to figure out how to get this done as it's extremely lucrative and I don't want to just give up on it.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS IS DIFFICULT. VERY VERY VERY DIFFICULT.

    I want to be crystal clear about how overwhelmingly challenging this procedure is. If you think you can make three quick calls and collect $12.5K you're either SuperSalesman or you're kidding yourself. However, if you have the right team with the right motivation, then working up to a couple of sales per month on an ongoing basis is possible. Maybe not likely, but possible.

    Even if you don't think you can do it but know of someone who can, I'll be glad to redirect a portion of their ongoing commission to you as a finder's fee.

    If you're interested, PM me and I'll forward you an NDA. Sign it and we can chat in full detail about everything.

    It might be an easier sell if you can get the VPs of Marketing to find YOU instead of you finding THEM. What is the NDA for? What is to not be disclosed?

    @BrandingBaw & @rockamore1: Sent PM @Wasted: Sure. I don't care if we find them, they find me, we find each other in a dark alley.... :) As long as we can make the connection and that concludes in a sale, everybody's happy. The NDA is to reveal the confidential marketing materials for the project. @lambofgods: Well, there are enough scams doing the rounds where gullible people are promised huge payouts when in reality the only ones making any money are the ones offering the deals, so I wanted to make real sure that I was clear on all this. To succeed in this pitch you need massive experience, an iron constitution, indefatigable enthusiasm and serious cojones. @the_demon: Haven't seen the movie, but based on the IMDb synopsis it's pretty close to accurate, except for the "but the job might not be as legitimate as it sounds." This is legit alright, the problem is that it's even more difficult than I've been able to communicate. To use the vernacular: It's a real beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeotch! :)
