    This is more of an abstract thought on how to get more clients for your offline marketing projects:

    Reach out to businesses that talk to businesses.

    Here's a sample letter I sent to about 50 local printing / t-shirt printing businesses:

    Hello,

    My company does SMS Marketing for small businesses, and since you have solid relationships with small businesses - I was wondering if you might like to work in our services as an 'upsell' to your printing packages, and earn commissions as a result. I'm willing to pay 30% of our profit- and SMS is a recurring purchase. So one sale of our most popular package @ $199/month would earn you roughly $53 per month!

    SMS includes services like: Mobile Websites, QR Codes, Facebook Integration, Text 2 Win, Text 4 Coupons, etc..
    (The cool thing for you is that businesses who do signup will need new items printed with their SMS campaign info, and QR Codes meaning MORE REVENUE FOR YOU!)

    If you want a White Label solution, I can also set you up as your own SMS marketing company, you can upload your own banner, it does cost $59/ a month for that though, but you would earn more, and be able to set your own prices and such.

    Just partnering and referring business is free though.

    I also do Web Design, Social Media Marketing, SEO, Search Engine Marketing (Adwords / Pay per Click), etc...
    So if your customers need any of that I've got them covered as well!

    I am local here in Dayton, and I look forward to hearing from you.
    Regards,
    ......

    Imagine finding one print-shop who has a database of 1000 local businesses they can email about 'their new service offering' - imagine finding 10 companies like that to do your marketing for you. They already have an established relationship, this isn't cold-selling, but warm-market selling which is a lot more productive.

    Anyone else do anything like this? I sent out my first batch today, and will let you all know how it goes!

    not sure those companies would have staff available to sell for you or even understand it -- probably more luck with business centers where they offer other more complicated services already.

    Well my thought was to have them ask their customer if they'd be interested in Text Message Marketing Services, and if so send their contact info over to us, if we close them, they get $50/month.

    Hi, this is a very smart idea.I have created a similiar partnership for the alarm industry and fundraising. I have a suggestion, I would create a very intresting oto that your new partner can send to his entire email list. Use your mobile website creation or something intresting that a customer can see immediate value. This way you can have those customers intrested in your offer to opt in . I once made a deal with a local small bank to offer a promotion for opening a new business account they would get a free marketing start up package. It worked well.

    CPA's and business lawyers are good to target too. They're connected to business owners. :)
