Our Agent Program
TMG was founded in 2002 by our president Marilyn Dooley. Marilyn spent her entire carrier in telecommunications and once deregulation was put into law, she realized there was a huge need for a one-stop-shop that could offer all the CLECs available at one time. As a result, she obtained contracts from all the CLECs that were offering agent programs for the newly emerging “alternate channels”. The products were very easy to sell. She approached local telephone dealers in the southeast and recommended that they sell dial tone as well as phones to their customer base. In a very short time, she had many agents using the TMG agency to sell dial tone as well as equipment on a residual income basis.
Fast forward to today. Not only has the industry changed technically, but the independent sales representative is now the standard, not the exception. TMG has changed right along with the industry. As we grew larger and larger, it became obvious we needed to focus our energy on the southeast as a regional master agency. It was also necessary to grow internally as well. We now have full time sales support and accounting teams. However, there is one thing that has never changed…our core operating principle, “Our agents are paid on time, every time, at the end of the month. We have no quotas. We never cut an agent off for low performance. Should one of our agents pass away, we make arrangements for their next of kin to receive residuals indefinitely. Why? Because it is the right thing to do and it is what TMG stands for: value, service and integrity.
Without a doubt the most beneficial aspect of working with TMG is relying on our portfolio of over 100 carriers to obtain exactly what your client needs. TMG does the needs analysis, obtains the quotes, prepares a three-carrier presentation document, with contracts, and then follows the order until installation. The principle behind this is simple. We want you to do what you do best which is usually sales, and we want to do what we do best, the operations function. There are many “master” agencies out there, but TMG is unique. No one works as hard or gives the level of support to their agents as TMG. If you have an interest in becoming a TMG agent or want more information, please call us @ 678 574 0573 X1.
