What products make the most money in telesales if youve got the skills?

18 replies
Ive looked on google for lists of what makes the most money teleselling and couldnt find anything solid. If you had the skills already then what would be the big money makers to sell on the old time telephone? I thought app design or websites would be some good ones but if you really have authentic super genius communication skills, what would be your best bet if you had to venture a guess at some nice items? Are there any official stats or lists out there. Highly appreciate it!

    Yes I've thought about getting into the whole stocks and commodities imbroglio, but unfortunately dont have a license for that industry now. Home security systems do actually sound very nice though that would be of value to almost any home owner keeping the baddies away. I wonder if websites are as lucrative as they were back in the wild wild west days when everybody wanted one. I would think not, but their still may be some opportunity. Anybody know if any high ticket item companies are hiring? Or any other big products that fly off the shelves with a little inspiration? My dad sold computer networks for CAT and did gang busters with that. Oh yeah baby getting in my new hi tech bluetooth headset soon and can feel the sales rumbling in my veins. Thanks for any assistance

    The ones with the highest price tags and commission payouts.

    Jeez this is like Ron White, Where's the safest seat on the plane? In the back, because "the mountains are up front."

    If you really are good at phone sales then consider being a closer for high ticket coaching services and info products. There are plenty of these being offered, especially on Facebook. The seller runs ads to a qualifying application and those who qualify get booked on a call with you.

    This is all about how you spend your day, what target you aim for. You aim for a $200 or 1000 system, you're gonna have to talk to a lot of people. You aim for a $5000 or $10K program and pocket 10-15%, you'll have a lot less work to do to hit your money target.

    Think it through.

      This type of thinking changed my life. It dawned on me one day that the very same companies that were buying low ticket items from me, were also buying high ticket items, in the same industry, from someone else.

      Those companies would have purchased the high ticket items from me, had I just asked. Changing my thinking made an immediate change to my income, but it also allowed me to better serve the customers. I could afford to spend more time with them and offer better solutions to some of the problems they were having.

      It's not just about the increase in income, but the increase in value that you are able to provide.Great post, Jason!

      Ron

      I love this advice. I know that you said that these high tickets can be found on Facebook, but could you point me in the right direction. What specifically should I search for and/or where to look?

        The Art of High Ticket Selling

        High Ticket Client Attraction Insider's Circle

        Start there.

        Do not spam your contact info. Look for people who say they're hiring. Observe the environment for awhile before you interact to get the tone and what's acceptable. Overstep on self-promotion and they'll ban you fast.

        Any coaches, trainers, copywriters group will have high ticket sellers. Search for those, join and observe.

        Some don't want to sell...they'd rather be doing the fulfillment work. Some don't have the time to expand. That's the basis around the business I run with a partner. They're maxxed out and simply cannot do any more sales calls on their own--yet they want to scale. You help them with that.

        Again, I will caution you about not leaping in there like a rabid dog, barking all over the place trying to get attention. I don't know you so I'm not saying you will do this. I'm saying I've seen a lot of people do this and they get banned in a heartbeat.

        Incidentally, you or someone else might ask: why are you helping? Aren't you creating competition for yourself? Nope. What we do is very different from what an independent operator does. As is who we help.

          I once talked to Bill Glazer (of Glazer Kennedy) during a Dan Kennedy event. About 1,000 people each paid between $1,500 and $2,000 to be there for a three day event.

          He told me that the attendees each got 22 direct mail pieces to sell the event. He went on to say that the 23rd contact was from a great telemarketing firm, that sold 2/3 of the tickets. One call...660 or so sales.

    See what the telemarketers are trying to push these days. The biggest calls we get in my area are for Solar Sales. Another big one in the area is debt relief.

        No conflict of interest as those who want call blockers won't ever buy from you anyway...

      I would sell that in a heart beat. When I used to sell vacuum cleaners in people's homes...

      I found a case (maybe several hundred pieces) in a liquidation store of "NO SOLICITING signs. They were small, maybe 3x10 inches, so I would keep a handful in my sales case.

      If the people didn't buy my vacuum cleaner, I'd offer a sign for $10 each. I paid $1 (I think).
      It was really mostly a joke, but I sold them all.

    I sell Grant Cardone's live seminars and his other products through telemarketing. The affiliate program pays 20%, and his seminars are as much as $10,000. Private speaking engagements can go for over $100,000.

    Thanks guys for advising me in the right direction. I'll sure look into some of these options. Looks like some cool stuff. May or may not be harder but probably pays off in the long run.

    Selling ad space for magazines that cater to the affluent.

    Think Robb Report.

    $40,000 for one full-page ad.

    The publication is growing its circulation.

    Been around for 4 decades.

    Airline in-flight magazines advertising is sold by phone.

    As a whole, magazine readership is doing fine in the digital age.

    They need salespeople to sell advertising space.

    Best,
    Ewen

    Personally?

    If I were somehow only able to sell over the phone instead of in person...

    I'd sell seats to high dollar large events.

    One of the biggest problems Guru's have is filling seats at high dollar events. You have to understand that the money isn't made by the ticket sale (even at $2,000). The money is made (by the Guru) in product/membership/coaching sales made to the attendees.

    They would love to be able to fill a room with people that paid a lot to be there, even if they break even on the event. It's the product sales at the event they care about.

    And none of this would be cold calling. You would only be calling their customer list.

    Almost any sales/marketing/get rich guru would work out a deal with you. But on larger lists, it takes more than one person to call, because you can't call for the same event over months.

    Another way to make a great living is selling life insurance to older people who have sent in a card requesting information. The average sale is $50 a month, and you make most of what they pay in the first year. So $450-$500 in commissions per sale is normal. You have to take a test (to get licensed), but it isn't difficult.

    This can be sold over the phone or in person. But lots of agents make a great living selling over the phone. The leads are cheap...lots of companies provide their agents leads for free, but the great money is in buying your leads and taking a much higher commission.

    There are a lot of videos on Youtube by agents that do this, and they tell you everything you need to do to guarantee success.

    Life insurance. If you are a good sales person, there is money in this. Everyone should have it, it is something that is valuable and needed.
