I AM curious about this..........ok, you have telemarketers to work for you. If they call and get hang-ups, from people, OR, they get 'no sales' at all, then do they STILL get a paycheck? Aren't they on commission?

The goal of a telemarketer is to generate enough interest with a prospect in order to transfer the person to me and/or schedule a follow up appointment for the two of us to have a short discussion about the possibilities of working together.

Most people in my experience will not hang up on your if you're honest, succinct and sincere. Get to the point and move on shall we say! If somebody hangs up on you that typically means he or she is having a hard bad, which is understandable. Or the person lacks professionalism and has a big ego and probably needs to take an anger management class.

You're confusing telemarketers with licensed agents. It is illegal for anybody to make money off of selling an insurance policy unless he or she is licensed. Any ethical agent would immediately take care of things if one of their telemarketers was explaining policies and/or trying to sell a policy without being licensed.

Usually, when a telemarketer calls, they call with a #800. If I DO answer the phone, it's a recording, telling me to "please wait a moment, while your party gets on the line." A FEW times, I've spoken to them. But, they sound like they're reading from a script...they don't sound 'genuine'..ya know?

I prefer to call myself and do not use a 1-800 number. When people see that I am relatively local they are more open to talk to me. The other thing they like is that the person they are talking to is the one that will show up at their home or business. This is especially true with seniors that I market to.

This past fall I saw how telemarketers bombarded my mother in law with calls about signing up for medicare advantage and she usually hung up on them. particularly annoying were daily calls from robotic sounding autodialers.

My partner does use a telemarketer for his calls and is does fairly well with her selling health insurance to small businesses. He pays her $10 an hour and a $50 bonus for every policy he sells. This makes sure that she makes a good wage but also is rewarded for setting quality appointments.

We are now looking into different CRM systems that bypass ansereing machines and voicemaiboxes but connect your telemarketer as soon as you get a person that answers. These also have the ability to track time spent calling and supposedly triple your outgoing call volume.

Does anyone use this? Does it work?

Due to tough times, many insurance agents are looking for inexpensive lead sources. I always recommend turning your website into a lead generation tool. If it is optimized well, then it easy to rank well for a small geographic area. You can check out our website for that as we have experience helping in lead generation.

Yes, this approach can be successful. However, the quality of the leads you receive sometimes may be suspect. Though telemarketing is not fun, it does allow you to hone your skill sets and you know your appointments are solid. Good luck.

I like to have my phone ring from a prospect rather than cold calling or chasing down internet leads.

I target small business owners with 0-6 employees with a specific prerecorded message about saving money on life or health insurance. When someone wants more information they press "1" and are directly transferred to any phone number I want or they can press "2" and be removed from the list.

Now, not everyone that presses "1" is excited to speak with me, but around 25% end up being very good leads. How much could You make with 25 or more good leads a week?

I have used telemarketing quite a bit and have tried both paying hourly (with bonuses) and commission only. The telemarketer that worked on commission only set me much better appointments, due to the fact that they didn't want to waste my time. When I paid hourly with bonuses...it seemed I got more erroneous appointments.

I've worked for agent for a few weeks now, so I'm still kind of new at this, I call leads that the agent bought and set appointments or leave messages and the people I have called are happy that they aren't being called by a telemarketer especially one that can barely speak english. I don't do any cold calling , since it's a pain with the do not call list. I work directly with the agent so if I get someone who is interested, I can transfer the call to the agent or set an appointment right then. Works great for both of us since I am learning the business and in the process of getting my license. As was stated in another post if you use a telemarketer, talk to the one who will be making your calls, and make sure they can speak understandable english. Myself if one calls me and I can't understand them I hang up.
