How Wholesale Conference Helps ATEL Sell "ATEL Conferencing" to ATEL's 3,500 Prospects with the "5-Point Pitch"

In spite of being perceived as a commodity, conferencing is easy to sell and has fat margins. Most agents don't take the time to sell conferencing to even their existing client and prospects bases because they lack marketing.

Wholesale Conference solves this problem by giving their white-label resellers the perfect "5-Point Pitch" which dramatically (and easily) details how their "3rd Generation" conferencing is better than what even the big conferencing providers are selling.

Click here to see how Wholesale Conference has set master agent ATEL Communications up with Wholesale Conference's turn-key marketing so that ATEL can sell the private-labeled conferencing solution to ATEL's in-house list of 3,500 customers and prospects.

TMC Sells to GLOBALINX: Is this the perfect union of a sales powerhouse and an agent support house?

TMC is known for "loving agents". GLOBALINX is know for cutting edge VoIP sales. This could be a perfect union. Will TMC agents be mesmerized by the new "sales juice" or will they be spooked instead?
