Thaamir Moerat – Mama I Sold You
Thaamir Moerat, started his sales career as a Tele-Sales agent with no experience and after month 1, he was the agent of the month, month 2, broke the record with 300 sales averaging 15 a day at a premium of R55 per sale. Cold calling, referral based sales! He was immediately promoted to Team leader and managed a team of 12 agents averaging 1.2 sales per hour daily. That is 8-10 sales per agent per day.
An opportunity arose in the call centre at an international online gaming company as an inbound entertainment executive dealing with customer queries worldwide. After 2 months in the call centre, he took the initiative to start prospecting and calling clients to get them spending more. As the company had no outbound department, he was the only one doing so. He saw the need for an entire department and “pitched” the call centre head to let him recruit a team and start a department from scratch. He gave Thaamir Moerat 1 month to prove to him why. That month he met and exceeded all sales and inventory targets and his request was granted. 1 month later he had a team of 12-14 agents running 24/7 calling the world and converting players at a rate of 14 per agent per shift.
After month 3, the Cape town site broke the record for Liberty Life call centre sales (8000) with 60 agents. A number achieved frequently thereafter. 2 years later, Thaamir was contracted to train 5000 face to face sales reps for the government backed Commuter Card project.
He is the brains behind products like the GetSmart Card, Stu-d.co.za, Al-Isra.co.za and the CitySleekerrange and is the sole owner of The Fish King Factory shop in Paarl. Thaamir also holds directorship atVineyards rugby (Pty) Ltd, is part of the PMJ Exco and serves on the POBC of the Paarl Boys High old boys union.
