Business Development at every stage + Project, Operations and Sales Management
Start-ups are lean by nature. A surprising number of early-stage businesses neglect to harness key income. Are you connecting vehicles to consumers on your disruptive app? Have you connected your coveted consumers to an auto insurance provider - exclusively? Do you know that exclusivity is worth bucks to an auto insurance company. They raise the return on investment of each marketing dollar they spend with you because of the exclusive connection you have offered them. Your company is paid according to the number of consumers captured by the insurance company. Think of it as a big affiliate fee.
It's inevitable that a start-up somewhere will launch to the sound of crickets. It is possible to enjoy a winning outcome with the right strategy in place. I've worked with many young and veteren companies to connect them in front of the best audiences. Ask me a question or give me a call.
I have 20+ years experience developing growth channels for start-ups and veteran businesses with successful track records on a few continents. I work with founders to identify and execute passive and direct income that is immediate, intermediate, and long-term.
In order to develop income customers must perceive value in what you offer. The firsts are most important - first 30 seconds of a pitch, the first page on your website, and the first sentence of company or personal profile. I will help you promote the value of your product / service and you will get through more doors and close more sales.
You could partner with large organizations that serve nonprofits and community social impact groups such as Taproot Foundation, United Jewish Appeal (UJA) and United Way. Partnering with organizations such as these will vet your service and connect you with npo's. Good luck!
Hi, I served on the board of a rural food pantry that was supported by the largest food bank in the country, Feeding America. 1. Find out where the closest Feeding America managed food bank is to your location. Talk with them about developing a food bank for your area and being part of their network.
2. Reach out to area universities and colleges for assistance in writing and researching grant proposals. Consider using grant money to purchase freezers and conditioned warehouse space to store produce. Also consider using grant money to compensate small farms for produce to offset their costs and to receive higher quality products. I'd love to work with you through this process. Please send me a message to connect.
Hi, I'm a great believer in direct as opposed to digital leads. Collaborating with an organization whose members or graduates are new professionals will provide the best prospects. Continued success.
You may improve your product's credibility by getting endorsements from vets. Consider partnering with local/regional animal welfare groups.
An innovative way to reach boomers and gen Xers is to collaborate with builders of Active Living (50+) communities. Host modest events at community launches and sign up many participants at a time in a fun atmosphere. Facebook is the retirement community of social media, so hosting a group and page that explains your product/ service should be implemented.
Hi, it has been my experience and observation over decades that humans sometimes keep good product and service knowledge to themselves. Here are a couple ways you can expand your referral network:
1. Client-based referrals Another form of compensation could be discounting services instead of paying a fee
2. Equipment manufacture reps could refer clinics to you for a commission
