PLEASE READ carefully before you decide to bid. I am re-submitting this project after the original winning bidder declined to become involved. You must be comfortable with all aspects of this project as noted below.
I am a graphic designer based in Houston. Need experienced B2B telemarketer to locate/identify a minimum of 100 relevant quality emerging businesses and talk to them by telephone to introduce my design/branding practice.
I am not looking for a "sale" right away. This is preliminary gathering of potential clients to be further qualified upon their interest. I would like them to look at my website ([url removed, login to view]) and leave contact information on the website's "contact us" form if interested. We will contact them further to determine if they are a good fit for what I want in a client. My services are not for everyone and I need to be quite selective about whom I choose to work for. I am working with a new business development person on [url removed, login to view] who will help with this vetting/qualifying process.
What I do:
I am a graphic designer with nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, but with very little freelance work to date, and I would like to get some. I am looking to create original branding/visual identity solutions for startups and small businesses. These solutions would include a logomark and all related materials (including stationery templates and identity standards manual) EXCEPT a website, which the client is free to solicit help with on their own at their discretion. The minimum price for an entire project is in the US$500-2500 range and ***My business model entails charging royalties for projects in lieu of a high initial price per project***.
Who I want:
***I do NOT have any leads of my own***. The winning bidder MUST locate and identify these contacts. The contacts should ideally be *startup and small businesses*, preferably in the process of getting investors and needing a visual identity as part of the startup process. Fewer than 25 employees is ideal. Again I must stress, ***I do NOT have any leads of my own.***
I am especially interested in working with healthcare, biosciences, technology, oil and gas, and "green"/"sustainable" businesses. Existing businesses that are looking for a re-design of an existing identity are also quite welcome. NGO's and non-profits are a lower priority focus. However, if a few of those show interest, that's great as well.
What I need:
Please bid on searching for, locating, acquiring and contacting a minimum of 100 qualified B2B startup/small business leads, with conversion of at least 20 to leave their contact information.
***This may be an ongoing or recurring project depending upon initial success.***
These businesses can be anywhere in the world with an emphasis on the English-speaking countries. I am located in Texas, but I am open to working with the right clients anywhere in the world.
***Also, and this is very important, please bid ONLY if you have taken a look at the website and like my work.***
I need someone with at least two years experience in cold calling and an excellent command of spoken business English (with understanding of American dialects). The ideal candidate must have a professional, friendly and polite manner over the phone.
I have a suggested call script which you may alter somewhat, but please keep the overall tone friendly. Allow the client to say "no" if not interested and offer to provide them the URL for future reference. This is only an introduction, and is to be as relaxed, non-threatening and pressure-free as possible. My services are not for everyone, only for those who are truly interested and willing to make a substantial investment on a visual identity/branding program.
More details will be provided to the winning applicant. Thank you for your interest and I hope to hear from you.
