    I have been calling through leads I have generated myself. I talk to a lot of people and have a lot interested but, I am horrid at closing the sale. Where is the best place to find someone that can do some calls for me as well for a commission? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks,

    Kabone

    I have cold called myself, hired and trained my own team of telemarketers, helped develop lead programs with lead companies offering tm services, and right now working on a lead magnet for a tm firm (I have experience in this area).
    Top place is going to be upwork, then freelancer. Personally for me, I wouldn't be comfortable buying tm services on a blackhat site, but that's me. Could also do to the fact that there's confidentiality laws for my niche and that's not worthy violating for cheaper costs.

    I would start at Upwork, get a free ad going. Depending on your niche, and length of sales cycle (which dictates percentage of quality you need to have with your contacts) you might want to ax out agencies, I like to groom my tm's myself, so having an agency rotate tm's for my account wasn't preferrable.

    Now you can have this be a long process or easy process. By that I mean, cut out all the unexperienced and those that follow directions. In EVERY ad I have a script, and I REQUIRE a voice file of them reciting it. There's no consideration without that, and I will sometimes tell people in the ad their application won't even be considered without the file. It's your choice if you want to remind me people who just autosend you an application of the voice file requirement.
    For those you think are good to work with you will want to talk with them to explain the process and to hear them recite the application. Many tm's who apply are foreign non-fluent english speakers so it is important to go over the script with them on the phone. Go over what's required of them.
    Tell them they aren't allowed to do other jobs or tasks during your calling hours (you can get desktop monitoring software for this).

    Also if you have an autodialer or predictive dialer you will want to train them on it, so having a guide put together, or a pdf with some youtube training videos would be very helpful.

    I will just give you my list of very INEXPENSIVE telemarketers that have GOOD English accents. I have personally inteviewed all of these tm's on upwork (used to be Odesk and Elance). They followed instructions and are reputable:

    Wow, you are just FULL one liners! Nice try padding posts.

    My response to craigslist is you better have a solid strategy and process in place, these people are usually more urban, more expensive, and wanting not to work as hard. I would do craigslist only if you were supervising them in office.

    Yes, I made over 200,000 last year from it and I am looking to do more then that this year :)

    Thanks for the infor I will check out the links, I have found most people looking to work on an hourly wage do less in sales (They also make less money as well), I look for people who want to be paid commissions because they make a heck of a lot more and it leads to better sales people.

    I have tried to hire people off of craigslist before, everytime turned out horrid. I do most of this from my house, and have had people from craigslist who seemed serious come over to my work area which was the whole second floor of my house and have them just screw around on facebook and twitter, plus most of the people from their think they are awesome sales people and really just suck..

    How are you bad at closing but you have 200k in sales from TM'ing? That doesn't make sense..

    I would recommend taking a look at Upwork (formerly Elance). They've got a massive database of freelancers specialising in everything and to suit most budgets. You should be able to find soemone on there for a decent price.

    Last year I paid someone commissions to do the Telemarketing and I did the fulfillment of the services.

    I also did some sales myself from the referrals from previous customers I received but those people already were pretty mcuh ready to sign up, so it wasn't difficult.

    I will check out that thank you :)

    You can try outbounders, you can hear the people's voice before you hire them, all of their calls are recorded and you can see what they are doing on their computer, good to see if the people you hire are great at calling people or not and if they follow your training/script properly.

    Not sure if you'd find capable callers who wouldn't feel like they could just do calls themselves for full profit.

    But I've went through the Straight Line Persuasion course by Jordan Belfort and other sales communication courses. I have field experience as well in automobile sales, real estate, SEO services and database marketing services.

    As long as it's a quality offering for your prospects/leads, closing isn't the hard part as long as you have a solid list of objections/rebuttals. Maybe you just need a stronger sales script.

    I can help you in that regard if you're interested.

    I think in Google, you can find contact channels
