Telemarketers' earnings vary with the type of work they do. The pay can range from the minimum wage ($7.25 per hour, which is $15,080 annually) to more than $18 per hour (more than $38,000 annually). Pay may be higher for those who deliver more elaborate sales presentations, work weekends, or make business-to-business calls. As telemarketers gain experience and skills, their pay increases. The median hourly wage for telemarketers was $11.31 in May 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This translates to median annual earnings of $23,530, and salaries ranged from less than $17,730 to more than $38,450.
