Will a new biz model like this work? I want to get out of the direct sales business and create a true partnership.
I operate www.toobeez.com & www.project-connect.net commercial websites. CCT is privately owned and operated
CCT currently sells direct and indirect through catalogs, retail stores, and many other websites. CCT targets:
Consumers w/ Expendable Income
Camps / Recreation Centers
Specialty Toy Stores
Education Market at all Levels
Corporate Training / Coaching
Health & Therapy Markets
CCT’s new business model will allow us to only sell through our Business Partner network. This network will sell direct to the various markets in their respective states only.
New Partners may sell CCT’s products direct & indirect through catalogs, retail stores, in-person, on their own website, and other websites. We will hand over all of our current business relationships to the new Partner for their particular state.
Acquiring a State - Fees are based on 16 factors (population, # schools, # businesses, etc.)
1. A Sealed Bid Auction / let the market bear out...or a possible flat fee ($1,500 - $10,000)
2. Pay our monthly license fee ($45 to $3,000) based on the state.
Partner Benefits - We believe this is a true win / win.
1. For the state owner there is not a large capital outlay compared to a franchise. We have proved out our markets.
2. Partners purchase our products at actual cost + 10% from our manufacturer.
Cost $45. per 57 piece set
Wholesale $90. per 57 piece set to their Dropship account or retail store.
Standard Retail Price is $150 set (no discounting)
3. We will maintain inventory or the Partners may take possession / hold their inventory
4. We will dropship direct to Partner customers
5. We will maintain marketing efforts to direct traffic to the Partners
6. We will continue to develop innovative products for the Partners
7. We will allow Partners to copy our websites. Need: new domain name, shop cart and host.
1. Good cash infusion
2. Monthly revenue forecast w/ monthly fee
3. Earn 10% for each unit ordered
4. Earn 5.00 for each order shipped
I am not looking to sell anything here. I need opinions and support.
