With the overall experience and the passion of sharing a product/service to potential clients or customers I must believe in it, be passionate about it.

    United States - Last active: 09/09/2014

    I have worked at home as an Independent Contractor for over 5 years, so I have developed a very strong self discipline that is required to successfully stay employed and to manage my own time. I have the ability to focus on the tasks that are required of me without becoming distracted by whatever may happen around me. I am extremely adaptable, so while my main background is cold calling, I am very reliable and can do any tasks that are required. Data entry, writing, research, as well as social media marketing work, are all things that I enjoy, but I also remain open to completing other tasks. My only competitor is myself, so I love to be challenged, as well.

    Cold Calling Guru for Hire

    United States - Last active: 10/21/2013

    It is extremely easy to SAY that you are ONE OF THE BEST COLD CALLING EXPERTS IN THE NATION - and many talented individuals claim to be such. While it is easy to SAY that - it is NOT so easy TO PROVE IT in a matter of minutes. That is exactly what I will do for you. Hello, my name is Michael Morehouse and I have spent nearly 25 years (yes, I started at age 21 making cold calls!) perfecting a method to sell my own unique products to medium and large corporations all over the world. I am an entrepreneur and self-taught cold calling "aficionado". I specialize in getting Senior Executives on the phone (that is much easier said than done, in and of itself) - and conveying the essence of a very unique product or service to them in a matter of seconds (using my initial "opener") and minutes (my brief, but very compelling "overview" of the product/service). Over the decades and across tens of thousands of cold calls (yes, TENS OF THOUSANDS) - I would estimate my "connection level" (ability to actually get the executive on the phone) at around 60%. Once I have them on the phone, my "conveyance" level (getting the executive to agree to listen to my "spiel", at least briefly) approaches 90%. Finally, I would estimate my historical "closing" level (leading to a further meeting or call to action) at roughly 80% - depending on various factors, including which product/service I was promoting at the time, etc. To use a military analogy, in the world of cold calling, I would be considered a highly-trained "sharp-shooter" (long distance "sniper", I guess, though I do not like the sound of that!) - who is fairly expensive to utilize, but more than worth it - and primarily called in to take out the "high value" targets, so to speak. So what is the "catch"? Does the above sound too good to be true? Do I sound too good to be true??? There is no "catch". However, my cold calling strategies are indeed SPECIALIZED. I have started several companies - all with products that are truly UNIQUE in their marketplace. My phone strategies and skills work only for similarly unique products and services. If your company has a product or service that is truly unique in your marketplace (can you legitimately claim "we have a product/service/feature that no one else offers"?) - and you can convince me of its value and uniqueness - I CAN CONSISTENTLY GET VERY HIGH LEVEL EXECUTIVES ON THE PHONE AND LISTENING FOR AT LEAST A COUPLE MINUTES to your concept. Give me a list of targeted executives (anything below C.E.O. level) and I will attack it with tenacity, precision and vigor. I will deliver results - and incredibly fast. That is simply what I do best. And given the conditions described above, I do it as well as anyone on the planet. Period. Once again, If you can convince me of the value and uniqueness of your product and/or service, I will gladly prove my finely crafted phone skills by getting through to your first 5 PROSPECTS FREE OF CHARGE. Then, we can discuss compensating me for delivering phenomenal results on the phone. The bottom line is that cold calling high level executives comes as natural as breathing to me. I enjoy the challenge immensely and am extremely effective at it. I look forward to applying my exceedingly unique and effective cold calling skills and techniques - those that I have forged over decades selling my own products and services - to your unique products and services. By the way, If you would eventually like for me to then train your "cold callers" to do what I do - I would be willing to discuss that as well. all the best, Mike
