Telemarketing is about selling goods and services using your phone. A hundred years after the invention of the phone, companies began to realize that it is convenient and practical to use for the sale of their goods and services. The phone will connect directly with the buyer, bypass all possible intermediaries, and offer the product based on the person’s needs and preferences.
