This week I thought I would post more of your questions as well as my responses. See if any of these situations sound familiar. The questions are psoted essentially in the same manner that I recieved them. And don’t forget to write in with your questions. I love hearing from you.
hello im a young man that is a part of a brand new company that sells an awsome employee bonus package, we also sell the package to residents so it is very versital, neways i dont know if this message is going to go anywhere or not but if i could somehow get in touch with u and kinda fill u in on our program that would be cool. i would love some advise if possible. thank u for your time and have a nice day.
Basically im on a budget right now of like $1500 and i need to open up a office somewhere in silicon valley, provably like the san jose area. anyways i need help trying to figure out how exactly to find willing telemarketers to work my office and kinda figure out the best way to roleplay with them and get my guys confident enough to do phone to phone sales to me it seems like in this game u have to have a certain charisma and attitide to be a successful telemarketer, also i have to figure out pay role, i have talked to at least 7 different telemarketing companys in the past 2 days to just get a fill of whats really going on and they pay their telemarketers at least $25 per hour and im at a point right now where all i have is faith in success i cant really offer wages like that i was thinking of giving like a minimum wage and a percent but but right now i dont think of that as a good idea because i think that would give the salesman a little bit to much power immediately. I really have a lot of things to think about cold calling is just a percentage of my game, i really have a lot of different aspects that need to be thought through. Basically the biggest thing that is right in my face right now is i dont have the soldiers to bust ass like i have been doing..im really just looking for an o-g to help out however possible.
Wow. You have your work cut out for you. A couple of things to keep in mind.
1. You don’t have to pay the TM’S the same as the other firms’ because you are a new start up. So decide what’s in your budget and pay accordingly. My suggestion is around $15.00 per hour (commission is optional) . This will keep you competitive without having your tm’s struggle to pay bills.
2. Silicon Valley? Hmmm. If you have a budget of about $1500.00, I’m not sure if you’ll be able to find a space that you can afford as well as salaries, taxes etc. . It´s not impossible but why struggle more than you have to?
3. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT YOU REALLY WILL HAVE TO DO MOST OF THE GRUNT WORK YOURSELF FOR THE TIME BEING TO KEEP COST DOWN. THIS ISN’T FOREVER, JUST FOR NOW UNTIL YOU GET THE COMPANY OFF THE GROUND.
