Telephone Sales Jobs

Telephone Sales Job Overview

Telephone Sales jobs generally involve someone sitting in a call center and calling a list of people with the intention of selling them a product or service. The calls that are made can be lead-driven where the people have already expressed an interest in the item or can be what is known as "cold" calling where the person contacted has no prior experience with the item. Various products and services can be sold in this manner, and for those who are good in sales, it can be a lucrative job.

Telephone Sales Job Education Requirements

There are not many requirements for Telephone Sales jobs. People have to have a strong phone voice and an engaging manner. They should have a strong focus on customer service and be ready to sell anything to anyone. The average requirement is a high school diploma, and if someone has prior experience in phone sales, it can help them to secure employment with a company. Those who want to go into supervisory roles should be able to prove they have experience managing others for at least one year.

Telephone Sales Job Market

The market for Telesales jobs, otherwise referred to as telemarketers, is not as strong as it was 10 years ago. This is because many sales companies have begun selling online, thus reducing the need to have people make calls to try and sell products. There are still companies who find a phone call to be the most-effective way to sell. Insurance companies, time share programs and others are still very much involved with telephone sales, and locations can be found across the country.

Salary for Telephone Jobs

Studies indicate that the salary for Telephone Sales jobs can vary dramatically. Most positions are hourly and range from $8 to $12 an hour. Additionally, many sales jobs also include commission, thus providing an incentive for those who sell the given product or service over the phone. With the addition of commission, many Telephone Sales people earn a salary of $32,000 or more a year.
