I`m looking to raise money for a new publication. The publication will be focused on businesses that are trying to market new products or services, or businesses in the start-up phase that have an idea they need to promote in order to secure funding or more resources.
I want to raise the money by recruiting businesses that need these services now. If you have a business, start-up, or product/service that needs to be marketed I want you to sign up now.
I`m offering 20 spots at $300 dollars each.
We will offer promotion for your business for a year.
The product will launch as soon as I have recruited enough businesses.
I`ve found that often enough for a business to launch or survive, entrepreneurs overlook the need for resources. Not just capital, although that is very important and the tools necessary to raise it are the same, but also talented, dedicated personnel who can help make your venture a reality.
Business is done between people, not numbers or machines, and it is through promotion and marketing we are able to reach out to people, recruit resources and spread a wider net.
Here`s how it will work:
- We will develop a podcast and radio segment in which we will interview you about your product/service or idea. This is a positive "elevator pitch" segment where you get to describe what you want the potential customer or investor to know about you.
- You will be able to submit your business plan, concepts, ideas, etc. to a panel of resources such as Search Engine Optimization experts, designers, attorneys, finance guys, etc. who will discuss your product/service and provide insight. Think of it as an analyst panel. Positive reviews will be posted online in the form of articles.
- We will continue to follow up with you over the course of a year, interviewing you about updates, milestones, achievements, challenges, etc. so that customers and investors can track your progress or keep you top of mind.
- We will release press relases, in association with our publication, to wire services, partner publications and our own media network contacts to announce newsworthy accomplishments.
