Have you ever visited a website and seen a box on the page that offers you to text chat with a live representative? These representatives are text chat customer service agents. You could do exactly what they do — answer customer text inquires from the comfort of your home.
Talk2Rep is a call center-based company that is currently hiring online live text chat operators to work from home. This company was started by former AT&T Call Center Executives, and it offers services such as appointment setting, telemarketing, telephone surveys, as well as live chat customer service.
The position on the Talk2Rep website is listed as “Sales Chat Agent.” As an agent, you will chat with existing and non-existing customers of a major telecommunications company.
The main duties include answering customer questions about the company’s products, and up selling products to increase company sales.
Some agents that currently work for Talk2Rep say training lasted about a week, and that they received a $40.00 bonus for completing training. This may vary depending on the account they assign you to.
This is a sales position, which means that pay is based on commission. There is no base pay, only commission pay. This is one of the biggest downsides of this position, but if you are experienced in sales, or have a knack for it, it could work out well for you.
Talk2Rep reports that its sales chat agents make an average of $11.00 to $13.00 per hour in commissions.
Talk2Rep is not one of the best work at home opportunities I have found. I say this mainly because the pay is only commission-based. Still if you are looking for work to do from home, you can try it out. Submit your application here: Talk 2 Rep Text Chat Jobs.
