Some organisations are outsourcing their telemarketing
function. With the right training and support, this
can be done by a distributed network of individuals
working from home, and reduces the need for costly premises
What you need for customer sales from
- a phone
- a quiet place away from the children
- at least 2 hours per day to make phone calls.
How much money can you make from customer
This depends on how you are paid. It might be per hour,
per phone call, or per lead generated so it can vary
As with any sales, you need to believe in the product
you are selling. You also need to be a particular kind
of person to be able to make cold calls.
Think about it from the other side. How many times
have you said no to a sales person on the other end
of the phone, or even put the phone down on them because
they were too persistent and wouldn't take the polite
'I'm not interested thank you' as a hint to leave you
Telemarketing can be a very thankless business so you
need to be tough! If you find it easy to talk to people,
and enjoy using the phone and striking up a conversation,
and you're not easily offended, maybe this is for you.
