Experience Level: Intermediate
We have our own magazine. Your community & Services Magazine, with a distribution to 12,000 homes & businesses monthly.

Our Magazine is the ONLY FREE community and services magazine delivered by The Royal Mail Door 2 Door Services in this inner city area! As well as being a forum of news, articles and views on very local topics for this inner city waterside community, we also promotes locally based businesses through our business services section. So, our magazine is a very good magazine for local businesses targeting new customers in this rapidly expanding inner city community of relatively young, employed, high disposable income people, being boosted daily with the imminent opening of Media City.

The Business Formula for the magazine is a well tried & proven formula successfully used in other UK locations.Our magazine is growing bigger and bigger every month, and I am looking to build the magazine to a 100 pages magazine in the near future! I am looking for telesales people to expand the advertising base of local advertisers of the Business Services section of the magazine.

The Opportunity is:

As a self employed, part time casual, telesales person , working from home, targeting locally based businesses interested in reaching this tightly targeted population

You will be your own Boss! Earning is not capped! Being a Community Magazine, the advertising rates are very competitive.The magazine is a well produced; and goes out regularly delivered by Royal Mail Door to Door service to the same precisely determined letterboxes every month. This is NOT a hard sell but, you will gain a lot of the experience and earning decent ££ for yourself!

You will be working from home but we will have a weekly meeting to assess progress and review target businesses

You must have access to a fixed telephone, and ideally, but not absolutely necessary , to the internet

We will agree target customer groups, either working from directories, or in some cases from lists provided. There will be a meeting once or every 2 weeks and support from the company.


The package I am offering is:

Our advertising rates start from £35 per business card size advert per issue, 1/4 page: £65, 1/2 page:£120, Full page: £225, Front/Back cover: £295. The 1/4 page and 1/2 page advert have been the most popular size advert. However, the £35 business card size advert is popular with the trades i.e. plumbers or Electricians! Because our rates are so low we ask either for a 6 issue or a 3 issue advertising commitment with advertising payable in advance.

1. Payment of a 20p per telephone call fee for every call made where you are connected to someone to whom you can speak to about the magazine & whose name you take and where you fill in the CALL SUMMARY SHEET with the details of the called party as below. Should be possible to achieve 20/30 telephone calls per hour like this.

Date Time. No Called Type Business. Business Name. Contact Name. Outcome of Call ? [Order placed? Sample Mag 2bsent?]

for example:

17/05 11.51 8779675 Hairdresser Jaynes Hair Boutique. Jayne Smith/Owner. Call back/poss int 1/8th. Send sample Mag/address below

2. Commission paid on adverts obtained, as soon as paid for [ Advertising is payable in advance/with order]

Advert for 6 months at 6 monthly rate: 20% [also for 1 issue advert for front or full back page]
Advert for 3 months at 3 monthly rate: 15%
Advert for single issue at 3 monthly rate: 10%

( If a visit is required to close the deal and you ask me rather than yourself to make that visit to close the deal, 50% of above commission rate applies. Most of the time, it's only big companies who want to have a full page advert and spend big money, who require a visit and if you think you want to make the trip as it is a big client of yours, it is your call to do so)

Commission and 20p per call ,call fees are paid on receipt of a CALL SUMMARY SHEET of all calls made, and commission claim for all booked adverts where payment has been received.

I think you should have no problem in aiming to make £1500 per month in commission & fee per call.
