Connect and Sell is a company offering an interesting little work from home position. What this company has you do is connect phone calls for business to business/sales companies. This frees up time for busy salesmen because when a call comes through to them, the customer they were trying to reach is already on the line, waiting to speak to them.
You contact the customers and then when someone is on the line, patch them through to the salesman. But you don't actually have to talk to anyone, apparently it is all automated.
For more details on this position, you can read through the old job posting I copy/pasted below:
Using our on-line tool, Experts will initiate outbound calls to prospective customers and ask for the listed contact. Once the customer comes to the phone, the Expert will immediately transfer the call to the appropriate sales professional. Expert will not speak directly to the customer. Each pre-scheduled work hour will pay $10 plus potential bonus for successful connections.
Connectandsell accelerates the process of connecting to new or existing prospects that companies' sales team are working to close. We do this through a combination of patented switching technology and virtual sales agents so that when we connect to a prospect, the prospect believes that the company's sales rep has made the call.
Connectandsell's agents never speak to prospects directly. This service enables sales reps to spend all of their productive time presenting the product or service.
