I've been working at Legendary Marketing for the past 3 and a half months. We are a golf marketing company, and what I do is call businesses who would normally hold golf outings and ask them 3 questions about their previous outing, if they can answer them, they get a free round at whichever club we are representing. Its a pretty good deal considering a round of golf can average from anywhere around 50 to a few hundred dollars. Anybody in their right mind would answer the questions if they knew they were getting a free round, but we can't exactly tell them we're giving it to them until after they answer the questions, so until they do, it remains a "free gift". The pay is good, $1500 a project which is 400 leads. We collect all of our own data and we all run our own separate projects. I like the people that I work with, and I actually enjoy my job most days. The only thing I don't enjoy is that people don't seem to understand that while they are doing their job, I am also doing mine. Telemarketing is decently stressful and I just wish that people could have some sympathy.
It is great to have found a community of people who share my views and my job!
