A BUSINESSWOMAN from Bury St Edmunds is aiming to expand her team after a successful link up through the recent Bury St Edmunds Business Festival.
Jo Withers runs VTM – Versatile Telemarketing – which offers cold calling, appointment booking, re-connecting with previous customers, customer surveys and telemarketing training.
She became self-employed after 15 years in the industry and having had two children.
She was invited to do some cold calling by local companies and VTM was then created.
She is aiming to expand her workforce and says she wants to offer work to other mums like herself who need flexible hours to fit round childcare.
She told the Bury Free Press that attending the Menta Trade Fair and the Bury Free Press business show enabled her to follow up on around 55 leads.
She said: “Many people say that cold calling is hard and that you have to be a certain type of person. My reply is that cold calling is not hard you just have to be a happy person and know what you are talking about.
Jo is hoping people wanting to join her will contact her on 01284 729557 or 07531 254947.
