I am looking for someone who will sell an imported product to resellers in the USA - preferably national accounts, but if not, regional and local vendors. Your job is telephone sales to businesses. Your working time is your time performing the following tasks:
-Time on the phone
-Time sending emails
-Time entering contacts into my CRM database
You will be working from a contacts database to be purchased from a reputable 3rd party. The target contacts will be classified according to several groups. You will have a fair amount of freedom to call additional clients, if you have time, in order to increase total sales volume.
Note to ODESK support personnel who think it's funny to call my posts VAGUE: The product details WILL NOT BE DISCLOSED PUBLICLY. THIS JOB HAS CONFIDENTIAL DETAILS WHICH WILL BE REVEALED ONLY AFTER A NONDISCLOSURE HAS BEEN SIGNED BY THE HIRED CONTRACTOR.
This is a new product to the American market, in the consumer entertainment arena, but having eco-friendly hooks (it is made by hand from sustainable materials). It will be launched in Asia, officially, next month. The product is manufactured in the Philippines by local workers. There has been some pre-launch publicity, and there is some social media buy pressure from consumers, including the west coast of the US and Hawaii.
However, there is no one in the USA selling this product, directly or otherwise. This will make you the exclusive source for the product in the country.
A pre-call mass postal mailing will be performed to raise some awareness. Email warm-ups and follow-ups with additional information, as requested by clients is expected to be part of your work. The goal is to sell wholesale quantities of the product, with lot size minimum of 500 pieces. If you sell a large total volume (numbers to be determined at time of contract signing) within the contract length, an additional per-unit commission will be paid to you as a bonus (payable once the customers pays in full).
This contract pays hourly for 100 hours of your time, renewable up to 4 times at my sole discretion.
