Virtual Assistant Needed: Appointment Setting
NOTE: You can sign up to get notified by email every time I have a lead/referral to pass along.
Deadline to apply: Friday, January 23, 2015
This is for a Sarasota, FL based business. She’d love to have someone who is familiar with the area since it would be helpful when setting up appointments (so they aren’t too far apart). However, I think that with having access to Google Maps this isn’t entirely necessary.
What time zone preference? Eastern
How many hours per day/week? Currently I do the same calls each Monday. Approx 6 hours. However, as long as 12-15 appointments are set each week it does not matter when calls are made. Can be split up over week (as long as it’s during EST business hours).
Are these cold calls? Yes, asking for an appointment. No sales. Desired outcome is to set an appointment for me to show them the magazine. I am looking for sponsors/advertisers. I have a complete script and answers to most questions (rebuttals). This script should be followed word for word. It is a national company and they have made it super simple and effective. It really is about reaching the actual decision maker.
What hourly rate range are you looking to try to stay within? Have not priced this kind of service before so unsure. It is a new business so of course I am on a very tight budget. Willing to do hourly or by appointment set.
Any specific skills needed? Pleasant clear voice. I can work with any calendar.
Knowledge of local area would be very helpful so the appointments are not set too far (distance) apart.
Any software experience needed? Not at all. I have the list in Excel.
Ideal for students, retired, at home parent, etc. I do request that the background is quiet though.
I’ll be gathering all responses and passing them along to the business owner and he/she will contact people directly.
Interested? Submit your information here.
Have you checked out these virtual assistant resources? There are a lot of free or low-cost tools, ideas, etc. you can use in your business.
The Fine Print:
I provide this service on a referral fee-based system. If a client I’ve referred contracts with you, my referral agreement requires just 10% of your gross revenue, and only for the first 90 days you work with that client. This small referral fee is simply a courtesy to cover the significant amount of time and resources required to maintain this list and filter potential leads and VAs – not to mention the reputation I’ve worked hard to build; which is the very reason I receive so many leads each month. (Before you reply to this lead, please take a look at the portion of the contract that spells out my referral terms and fees.)
