    Telemarketers on commission

    Hi guys.

    I am stuck trying to get a telemarketing company that will be willing to do n commission only. I need some telemarketing done in Cape Town and in Gauteng atm. Now I know many of us find them being annoying but telemarketing is a very realistic and powerful marketing technique. Any of you know of a good company I can chat to?

    Try Incommunica - haven't spoken to them for a while - a few years, but this is exactly what they do.

    Thanks Debbie

    Unfortunately they seem to be out of business, their website is down and I am unable to contact them on the number I found.

    I was unable to find a company that was willing to work on a commission basis. So I decided to setup my own team. I appointed a marketing manager on Friday, that will setup the team for me. Hopefully that will work out

    I'm kinda interested in what basis telemarketing companies were prepared to provide services.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    The telemarketing companies I contacted all looked at charging me a once off of some kind. Some included commission, but none were under 8k once off fee. Then the costs also depended on how many telemarketers you needed.

    The team we are currently setting up consist out of 3 people. They have specific targets to maintain and work strictly as independent contractors. Our businesses (Me and my wife) will carry the telephone costs and they will get a very high commission. My business alone can see them earning in access of 50k p.m. if they reach their very realistic targets.

    At this stage this is something I am purely setting up for our businesses and the intention is not to do telemarketing for others.
