Tried-and-True Professional Sales Representative
"Whatever you're thinking : think bigger !" - Tony Hsieh, co-founder of Zappos
Ladies and gentlemen : greetings ! Thank you for reviewing my Odesk profile, and for considering me for your Odesk job.
I was born, raised and educated in the New York City metropolitan area, and all my entrepreneurial, marketing and sales expertise was forged here.
Please note that in addition to having many years of successful telesales experience, I have also done very extensive in-person on-the-road outside sales; this is a completely different ballgame from telesales : I sell over the phone as I would sell if the prospects were right there in front of me. Prospects are aware of this dynamic when I liaise with them over the phone, and they appreciate that they are not being read a "wooden" contrived amateurish script when they are listening to my sales presentation; as a result prospects enjoy listening to what I have to say. This is one of the reasons why I am so successful at telesales.
I would also like to mention that I have numerous clients here at Odesk who have re-contracted with me here for additional Odesk projects after their initial Odesk projects were successfully completed. These clients have also payed me performance-based bonus-commissions on top of the base pay via the Odesk payment system.
In addition, I have Odesk clients who are more than happy to give me references. In fact, one of those Odesk clients - Equilibrium Ship Parts of Montreal, Canada - who has so far left me three rave 5-star feedbacks at my Odesk profile for the three Odesk jobs I have already successfully completed for her, wrote me via email after only two weeks into our first Odesk project together, "I enjoy working with you very much. You are confident, independent, and above all - a real human."
I am also quite skilled at the following :
Please note that I have very extensive successful market research, lead generation, cold-calling, lead development and sales experience in a number of diverse industries. These industries include high-end couture apparel and accessories; wholesale industrial machinery and equipment; wholesale automotive parts, components and accessories; oil-and-gas limited partnerships; wholesale industrial chemicals; etc. More often than not 99% of the sales I made in these and other industries were one-call-closes : new prospects purchased on the very first cold call.
