We are a 2 person start-up company. We have purchased a company with 10 years history, very good credit rating, and at zero employees, in NorthEast USA. Since we are tight on budget and are working as full time consultants ourselves, we are unable to market and expand the company. We were wondering if there are any websites/resources (besides posting an Ad on a jobs website) which we can explore to communicate to potential IT services marketing personnel in the NorthEast USA, to see if we can work on a commission-only basis initially. Once we start serving 2-3 clients and place a few consultants, we can afford to switch to a salary + commission option. This can be a great option for a marketing person who has contacts in the market but would like to work from home or work flex-time. Thank You!
You should be ACTIVELY building up a network with other trusted business advisors, such as accountants, management consultants, and deeply-niched, non-competing computer consultants
Also, please note that the highest quality leads will come from
1) Getting involved in local B2B organizations
2) Participating in relevant local B2B trade shows/expos
3) Speaking at local organizational meetings/seminars
4) Holding your own topic-appropriate seminars
Most good sales people would not accept the deal you're proposing... and you'd end up starting out on the wrong foot with most of your new clients. (Who "owns" the client?!?)
So I'd strongly recommend investing an hour or two, contemplating the above to come up with a stronger marketing plan.
Best of luck,
