This is a complete how-to guide for managers, giving you proven, field-tested strategic and tactical information you will use to avoid costly mistakes, and run your telephone sales operation like a well-oiled, money making machine. Starting and running a telephone sales department--the right way--is much more than sticking a few low paid part timers in an unused corner of the office, throwing some leads at them, and saying, "Go make some calls." And it's a completely different animal than running and managing an outside sales operation. Just ask the thousands of companies and managers who failed in the process.

He has consulted with over 200 companies, and started up over 25 successful inside sales operations. To buy Lee's time to get the same information he shares with you in this book would require an investment of thousands of dollars.
