THE SERVICE YOU WILL BE SELLING
You will be working as an independent contractor from your home selling a service over the
phone for a company who has been in business for over 10 years. This is
a multi-level marketing (MLM) opportunity
or a home-based business you will be starting. You will sign people up over the phone for a
monthly grant application service. The customers pay a monthly fee to have access to a list
of thousands of grant applications listed on one of our websites.
We have hired a team of grant researchers who locate the funding applications so these people
don't have to. They update the websites with the newest funding applications as they become
available. Once they sign up with our service, we give them a username and password so they
can start filling out the applications. Your job is to sell them the Application Service for
the full price listed on the websites or for a discounted amount if you feel this is the only
way to get them to buy.
The people you will call will be people who have expressed an interest over the Internet in
applying for a grant of some kind and who are happy to have someone call them back. Some want
to apply for a grant to go back to school, fund an invention, write a book, restore a historical
or cultural building or site, invest in real estate, expand a current business or start a new
business, and they need a grant, or some type of funding, to help them do so. In other words,

These warm leads have started the online registration process but have stopped for one reason

and for out 24-hour support team that can help if they have any questions.

the calls to be recorded. It is tied in to our main phone system, which allows us to monitor your
