I've been looking for sales people and so far I haven't found anyone. I had an interview yesterday that got me thinking, what if you could hire an agency of sorts instead of people? Does something like this exist? A sales company offers the service of selling?

I think tim ferris mentioned one in 4 hour work week. I will see if I can locate it.
Thanks for mentioning Tim Ferris. Changes the search term to outsourcing and ding ding ding we have a winner. Now I just have to review the search results to hopefully find a local solution.

Thanks again

no prob. I thought my copy was at this location, but it is not, so I cannot give specifics. If I remember correctly, his is all about call centers.

Yes.... These exist... Along with the Outsourcing (aka BPO = Business Process Outsourcing) people, this is offered by companies that offer exclusively Marketing/Sales Services.

If you can let me know what product/service you want help selling, I might be able to dig somethings up.

Best,

BLSH

Yes, I have found companies with the concept of sales outsourcing. I've already had a couple tell me they don't sell advertising, which is what I'm looking for. Thanks

Is this what you're looking for?

This does not appear to be a match, but thanks, it does look promising for someone with new technology though.

ATN, Just so I can understand better, what type of advertising do you want to sell?

Billboards, Radio/TV, pay per click/banner ads, etc. Do you have a website I can visit?

BLSH, right now I have a great idea that I can't post on the internet yet. It's advertising for local businesses and I have plans to go national. New twist on an old idea kind of thing. I'm sorry I really can't shed more light, but it would not be a wise move at this time. Hope you understand.

No worries, I understand your concerns. I am interested because I have been involved in Sales/Marketing all my life, and I thought I could help.

If you mean would I like to hijack your idea? Then the answer is no.... :tdown:

But if you mean, would I start a complementary business to yours so we can both succeed? Absolutely.......:cheers:

I know of a guy who owned a business that was basically a pool of salesman. Ironically, the POOL of salesmen was made up of HOT TUB salesmen. When there was a trade show or something of the sort that was showing off hot tubs, they would get commissioned by spa dealers and companies, and they'd go to the events and sell for them. This sounded like something you were looking for...
