Many of us have fallen in love with the idea of working from home and on our own terms.  It is a fantastic idea but the harsh reality of it is that many of us are not cut out for this type of lifestyle and suffer from many problems such as the distraction of TV and other motivational issues.  The purpose of this article is to examine one of the ways that it is possible to make a living from home through telemarketing and the hope is it can be used as a resource for you to evaluate if this lifestyle is for you.

What To Expect

Well naturally the first thing for you to expect is that you are going to have to be on the phone talking to people that you do not know a lot!  If this kind of thing scares you then this is not the vocational choice for you and you should probably stop reading right now.

But if you are determined to make this work for you then the second thing that you are going to need is to be able to deal with rejection.  No matter what you are going to be promoting, this type of sales strategy is filled with people saying no to you on a regular basis.  Trust me day in and day out of people saying no to you can burn out your self-esteem really quick leaving you wondering why you ever got into this in the first place.  The most effective tactic that I have found to deal with this is to keep a track record of the number of calls that you make and the number of successful phone calls.  That way you can adopt the mental attitude of every no is one step closer to the next yes and this really does make a difference to your motivation and confidence when you think about it this way.

There Are Some Advantages

Besides the advantage of working from home (providing you can keep your motivation high) in today’s world one of the main advantages is that you have the choice to work the hours that suit you.  You are able to access markets that span the globe and because of the advantages of time zone differences those night owls amongst us will be able to work through the night and still get to sleep in each morning.

I Am Still Interested And Want To Know How To Get Started

One of the easiest ways to get started is to sign up for an account with GetaFreelancer and similar sites (a quick Google search will point you in the right direction.  These are sites where potential employers post jobs that they would like to be completed and you have the opportunity to place a bid for the work to be awarded to you.  Just remember when operating on these sites that the lowest bid is not always the one that get selected.  Many of the responses to these ads are canned by a lot of providers so you have an opportunity to custom write a response and sell them on why you are the best person for the job.  Think of it as any other job application that you have ever done and you will be on the right path.

Final Thoughts

Whilst there is excellent opportunities in this space, like any business venture it needs to be entered into with a degree of caution.  You have with the advantage of time zone differences the ability to dip your toes in the water to see for yourself if this lifestyle is going to suit.  Don’t quit your day job immediately but if this is something that you truly want to try then you have the ability to dip your toes in the water before you dive in.
