SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I trusted this company. Mark swanson of Tele Resources WWW.TELERESOURCES.NET told me he was able to supply me with QUALIFIED leads. He said his telemarketers are the best there are, here is a excerpt from his web site, THIS IS part of WHY I chose them. but I got 5 Leads in 100 Hours of telemarketing WHAT!

It states:
Because Tele Resources, Inc., is committed to creating
a valuable sales design. We have implemented a program structured around the continual training of an employee, not only for productivity but also quality.

LIES MY TELEMARKETER WAS VERY DUMB AND COULD BARLEY SPELL!


From the beginning an agent is welcomed into the company with a training program geared for sales success.

The agent is then trained on program specific material. This helps each of our agents grasp a full understanding of the product or service they are about to offer.
Upon completion each agent enters into a program specific sales skills course. This course combines both skill sets and places them together in a mock call scenario, preparing each sales agent for successful dialing. These three phases of training are completed before an agent takes their first call.
Learning From Experienced Dialers

Each agent is assigned an experienced rep who will dial with that agent until they are ready to begin dialing without phone side assistance The new agent will learn techniques and skills from an already experienced dialer. This is a group of skills that cannot be trained, they must be witnessed and learned.

Incubator

Like anything in life a person needs to gain a little experience. We have set up an area on each of our programs where a new dialer learns how to not only reach expectations, but exceed them. Each dialer will spend a period of time in the incubator until they are ready to begin dialing on their own. In the incubator they will receive daily coaching until they have a well rounded skill set allowing them they ability to succeed.
Coach Trainer

The only way to properly succeed is to maintain a constantly improved set of skills. In order to maintain the skills that have been provided in training and in the incubator each sales agent is then broken in to teams. Each of our programs is broken into teams and each team is lead by a coach trainer. This process allows us to make sure every agent dialing on our programs receives some training time every day they are on the phone.
Teams

Each of our program has different teams each with a specific number of agents, making it easy for us to have daily interactions with each of our sales representatives. By doing this we are able to give and receive a constant flow of feed back.



NOW he talked me out of using another company because they were listed on this report. I can't believe because HE was ot on here I trusted him.

This whole company is a joke, I think this man works there all by himself. It was like pulling teeth just to get a call back. He talked a real good game. HOWEVER my MONEY is out the window. I am going to submitt a report to the BBB and Attorney General. Im also going to go to scam.com and anywhere else I can to let everyone know to not be fooled by Mr. Mark Swanson. He is VERY NICE and this is part of his scheme. I am in the process of evaluating if this company is part of another company or not that is running a scam as well. I will keep you posted.


I am gathering all the info I can here is some of the quality assurance page which can be found at www.teleresources.net

Quality Assurance

Telemarketing is as much about quality as it is about quantity. Telemarketing agents calling on behalf of clients are representing the company they are telemarketing on behalf of, and it is important for telemarketing clients to understand that their branding image can actually be improved by quality telemarketing services.

Telemarketing agents at Tele Resources, Inc. are constantly monitored by Tele Resources, Incs, quality assurance (QA) agents. QA agents listen constantly to telemarketing agents who are dialing and report on their performance. This process ensures that each telemarketing agent is monitored a minimum of once every other day.

Client involvement
Tele Resources, Inc. encourages telemarketing clients to take an active role in their telemarketing programs. When using an outbound only telemarketing center for telemarketing services, it is important that our telemarketing clients know their telemarketing program is being dialed at its optimal quality level. To do this we offer 2 different versions of client monitoring solutions that allow clients to listen to their telemarketing programs live while their programs are dialing.

Hosted Monitoring Solutions
With this solution clients can call in and listen to telemarketing agents live with a Quality Assurance team member or a telemarketing program supervisor. These calls are evaluated and discussed with our telemarketing team live on the phone. This process helps ensure that any issues are addressed immediately. Also, clients can discuss telemarketing strategies for dialing and agent improvement.

"ANYTIME I CALLED IN I WAS NEVER ABLE TO LISTEN TO ANYTHING OR I WAS PUT ON HOLD FOREVER"

Silent Monitoring
This service allows telemarketing clients to listen to their program and the telemarketing agents dialing it live without the knowledge of either the agents or Tele Resources, Inc. When using an outsourced telemarketing center, it I important to feel confident that the outsourcing partner you are using is making the right types of calls on their behalf. Tele Resources, Inc. offers this service to ensure clients they are using the right outsourced telemarketing service partner.

Sales Verification
As a company practice, Tele Resources, inc. verifies every telemarketing sale and lead generated before they are sent out to clients. This helps us to ensure that each sale made is not only accurate but quality. In addition, we verify each lead for accuracy and interest.

Verification Recordings
Every telemarketing recording is saved on file as practice for 3 years; however, Tele Resources, inc. will keep each recording for a client specific length of time. This is done so that telemarketing clients can trust that Tele Resources, Inc., is doing its best to ensure sales accuracy.

THEY COULD PROVDE ME NO RECORDINGS AND THE ONES THEY DID SOUDNED RIDUCULOUS MY INTERN CAN DO BETTER THAN THAT.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

What?

AUTHOR: Ex-employee - (U.S.A.)

What company do you work for or own that needed Teleresources, INC to dial for you? Mark Swanson is not ANYTHING that you said. Teleresources, INC is a credible company that does AMAZING work for any client that needs outbound dialing done for them!! What's your beef?


I am an ex-employee who loved working for a GREAT, CREDIBLE company that had MANY different FORTUNE 500 clients that had outbound dialing campaigns. These clients or previous clients are INCLUDED BUT NOT LIMITED TO: THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, ALLSTATE MOTOR CLUB, BMG MUSIC CLUB, CENTURYTELL TELEPHONE SERVICE, JJ KELLER AND ASSOCIATES AND MANY OTHERS. (As you notice, I can spell)

Seriously though, do you even know what/who Teleresources, INC is?


I do know......... The best job I ever had and a quality company that is ahead of the curve and can out-perform and other outbound telemarketing center in the country.

NOW THAT'S THE REST OF THE STORY!!!
