This deserves a Thread of Its own.
In the offline world, a 10k day in a call center... nothin but a thing... In 2007 when I ran NPS in Nashville.... 10k was a complete disappointment...we raised 7 million dollars that year. (Research it for yourself to verify, look up the attorney generals website).
Read on, and you will really "get" this...
When I ran com1 (a call center selling websites nationally to small business owners), also in Nashville, we created 5.7 million dollars in RESIDUAL income from selling websites, our first YEAR in business. The hosting service we were promoting "BizOnThe.Net".... later sold to Prodigy for over $800 MILLION dollars.... (you can also google that one) and with only two call centers promoting them (ours being one of them) they developed over 80,000 offline customers in just a few short years time. before being sold.
Thats hard to imagine in a world where most people are pushing affiliate programs for 20.00 per sale, but you have to realize that only 2% of the money in the US alone, flows online.... 98% of it flows in the offline wold where a small mom and pop roofing company with 12 employees can do 30 million dollars per year.... as opposed to the single most highly paid IM'r in the entire world doing that much. Millions of dollars flowing in an offline call center operation is only hard to imagine, if you have never done business offline or scaled out.
My friend John Bowers has created 10's of million of dollars in offline residual income, and you never even hear of him online... he would be a GOD in a place like this, but it never occurs to him to even consider something like participating in a forum... neither do the guys who run ATT who sell thousands of website packages per day.
Perhaps this will help you imagine what Im saying:
If you create a virtual call center with 10 telemarketers... and you sold websites for $1800 apiece... and 40% of your sales people didnt even make one sale that day.... you would clear 10k that day just on the front end alone.What if you had 20 or 50 callers? What if you charged more than $1800?
Think outside of the box and you will see its not really that uncommon at all.
I hesitate to say these things, because some people find these kinds of numbers to be so unbelievable that is causes them suspicion, or hurts their faith in what they can do ALONE, and it racks some peoples brain because its too much to assimilate, and my goal is to HELP, not rack anyones brain....but .... Im just tellin the truth so...
You can easily do a sale or two by yourself per day... or per WEEK at least, if you truly pursue it like an $8.00 per hour telemarketer has to everyday for 7 hours per day, just to keep his job.
ATT does it every single day with those kinds of telemarketers....so does the yellow pages. And how do they do it folks again?
Nothing new here, just teaching what I know from experience as a 10 year call center consultant, manager and developer.
Its easy enough to prove for yourself... just call att and ask for a job on their sales floor, and they will have you selling 2 website packages per day for $8 bucks an hour along with 50 other callers just like you, just to keep up your minimum quota.
I know these things, because my career has been managing rooms like that.
So for all of those who think Millions of dollars in offline sales are unbelievable?
Can you really argue now that its possible?
Food for thought, hope it expands some peoples thinking.
