Hello to all! As the thread`s headline says this particular Joint Venture opportunity would be best suited toward people who have working Web Design businesses( creating or managing sites for clients) or Web Design freelancers. I will explain the details in the paragraphs below. First of all let me warn you that this post is probably end up being quite long. I would prefer to lay down all of the most important information here, so that anyone who contacts me via PMs is well-aware of what he is getting himself into. This is a business opportunity for both me and you, and I would feel bad if I don’t put the effort to make you understand what I offer and why I have chosen to put the whole thing that way. Off we go! Who am I and what exactly is my JV offer: Long story short the JV is basically a symbiosis between my skills as a FB advertisement creator/manager( some people would call themselves experts, but that is quite long-winded term to use for something you don’t learn in college). Large portion of the bread of my table comes from my work as a freelancer who helps online shops and business web-sites with their FB marketing – the paid advertisement part in particular. If you are a Web Designer or if you are running that kind of company/business, you are probably interacting with given number of clients every month, most of which are not aware or not informed enough about the power of FB marketing. If we work together on making some of those people my clients, we could both benefit, because I will be paying you 30% of any and every income generated from the people you refer to me on monthly basis. For as long as they pay me for my services. Now, you should probably know some other things about me. I am in my mid-twenties and currently I reside in Eastern Europe. I am pretty successful when it comes to managing other people`s FB marketing efforts. I work for some quite big local shops, but I also work with smaller/newer players in the market. I have extensive experience when it comes to marketing In the automotive, clothing, watches, mobile phones/smartphones and accessories, travel, weight-loss, bodybuilding products, hosting and more. But let`s move on to the numbers game. How would all of this work and what is in it for you: Most importantly you should probably know the way I am doing business – i.e. my business strategy. I restrain myself to working with smaller number of clients compared to your usual FB marketing services company – some of them are known to worth with over 100 clients, sometimes going as far as working with 500 different clients. I don’t do that and I have my reasons for it. I keep my client base between half a dozen and a dozen clients at any given time. This enables me to give extensive attention to each and every one of them, resulting in far better results when it comes to ROI from the investments they are putting in their FB campaigns. For my trouble I usually charge 50% commission, based on the predicted monthly budget – they need to pre-pay my services for any given month. So for instance if I have a client who wants to spend 1 000$ per month for FB marketing, I charge him 500$ over that sum as my commission, thus making his monthly expenses for FB ads 1 500$ total. Now let’s say you were responsible for me finding and landing this client in the first place. I would gladly pay you 30% of each and every of my monthly commissions which this clients pays me, for as long as he continues paying me. Thus you will be making 150$ for your trouble, I would be making 350$ for my troubles working with the clients. Should the client decide to increase the monthly budget we are working with – your commission increases accordingly. Should he decide to decrease the monthly budget, unfortunately your monthly commissions will be decreased accordingly, as well as my earning of course. However, the way I am doing business encourages me to give my best to keep the budgets spent by my client as high as possible. Because I am making 50% commission – even a slight increase in the budget of let`s say 100$ gets me 50$ in my bank account in the given month. Let me tell you – I am more than motivated to work hard enough to keep my clients spending well for FB ads. And both you and I could benefit from that. There are few big reason for this particular JV and for me posting it in this specific moment. The first big reason is that I’ve hired myself an Photoshop assistant recently, so that the guy could help me with creating banners/FB ad image copies, enabling me to keep my attention to the other important parts of the successful FB marketing – ad copy creating and implementation( combination of text, image, the right product, the right audience), split-testing( I am probably too big fan of split-testing, but that’s how I earn my bread and butter, so I take my sweet time with it), monitoring the results and tweaking whatever needs to be tweaked, and last but not least – keeping in mind the conversions rates, because this is where my clients make their money, and respectively where they are making my monthly commissions. So my new Photoshop guy enables me to have more time for doing those things. This in turn enables me to acquire some more new clients, without risking downgrading the quality of my work. And here comes you, hopefully my new JV/business partner. Why do I need you: As I’ve said – I am from Eastern Europe. I am usually working with clients from my country and the countries around us. Well, some of my clients do happen to sell in Western Europe, or even Worldwide, so I have a very nice experience doing FB ads in countries like US, UK, France, Germany, Canada, Netherland, Austria, Spain and so on. In the cases where I don’t feel fluent enough in the local language, I use translators. So the language barriers aren’t really an issue. But basically I am a bid fish in a small pond. I have no intentions to become big fish in the big ocean. But in my opinion being a big fish in two or three small ponds is far better than being a big fish in only one pond. So here we go – why do I need you… Many a people won’t give their time of day to consider an Eastern European as capable to handle their marketing. Or as capable to work with at all. I suppose this is normal, I too find it challenging sometimes to work with people with whom I don’t share a common language. But let’s say you are from Germany, you are quietly effective in your job as Web Design business owner, the same way I am quietly effective in my job as FB marketing ‘expert’ – there, I’ve said it. You get to work with German people, it’s only natural. And you happen to tell me about this one guy from Eastern Europe who can be of help in their FB marketing endeavors. You have their trust, and I have your trust, and the things just happen. We are all better for it – I get my client without the hassle of approaching him myself and looking desperate for work, you get your 30% commission every month for being such a nice help, our new client is set well enough with a guy who is really working for his interests, because they happen to perfectly align with his own interests. Sounds great, eh? Now, it’s not only roses and birds: The nature of my business strategy does not allow me to accept working with every clients who happens to call me. Some are expecting too much of me – I am not a magician, I am a marketer, and when I am not sure I can live up to the hype, I refuse the job. Not every business is right for FB marketing, and FB marketing isn’t right for every business. That’s the simple truth. Nobody wins if I accept jobs who are likely to plummet after a month, least of all me. So I just don’t accept them. In this case no one really wings, but no one really loses anything either and sometimes this is the best thing that could happen in a situation. Other times the clients who calls won’t be serious enough in his intentions. I tend to work with clients who are spending at least 500 – 1 000$ on monthly basis for FB marketing. I have nothing against the smaller business owners who cannot afford to spend that kind of money on marketing, but then again – I need to get compensated for the time I spend doing my work and budgets lower than 500$ can hardly make my time worthwhile. So I usually refuse work offers with too small a budget. I try to work mostly with clients who I deem to be serious enough in their marketing intentions and in the cases when I am reasonably sure that I can deliver on my part. The other thing with which I am earning some money is writing books. There is one very important aspect when you are an author – if you write good books you could earn income from them for 70 years. It’s a long-term active. I try to view my FB marketing clients as long-term actives as well. I refuse the ones who come to me with unrealistic projects and I am honest with my potential client about my estimation of how likely is the FB marketing to work for their business. I refuse taking on projects who are likely to fail. You need to know that, in case you are interested in this JV. I don’t want people getting angry at me for turning down some of the clients they send to me. I have my reasons and in the long-term both you and me will be better off for it. My reputation is important for the kind of work I do – I prefer to have the reputation of an honest man, easy to work with and with a good record of successful marketing projects, than to have the reputation of a man who takes on every project coming his way, just so he can make an extra buck here and there. So there’s that. Short term and long-term possibilities for our mutual JV: As I’ve said you will get 30% of everything I earn thanks to you. How would this work you ask? Either by me forwarding your part of the commissions to you whenever they comes, or by you handling the commissions part and forwarding my 70% to me. I don’t care which of the two it would be – we would need a healthy amount of trust between us in order to make this work anyways. Should we get to the point when the monthly incomes from the JV reach middle X.XXX$ or low XX.XXX$ it probably would be best if we create a LLC in order to ease the legal/accounting part of the JV. So in the end we both may end up owning a company specialized in proving FB marketing. That would be nice. I am also providing FB page managing services which I usually outsource to a few capable individuals. Sometimes I charge my clients for this, sometimes it comes as free lunch for them, for being kind enough in paying me big commissions. In case they need to pay additional monthly fee for it – you get 30% of the income. Same with the Google AdWords services I sometimes happen to offer to my clients. I am an over-all marketing strategy type of guy, but it usually starts with just FB advertisement management services. Well, in case some of the clients end up paying for Google AdWords, you will get your 30% of those incomes too. However, since Google AdWords usually requires far less time to be managed once you get it done, I usually charge lower commissions for it 20-25%. Those are still among the highest commissions charged by Google AdWords companies, but it’s not as high as my 50% commission for my FB marketing services. Just thought you should know that. All in all I think it’s a good opportunity for all of the sides potentially involved. Even for the clients. Especially for them actually, since making an effective marketing campaign for a client isn’t a walk in the park most of the times. The majority of my clients usually stay with me for at least a year – the reason for that is of course that I keep my client base narrow, offering the attention needed to each of them. I am always trying to be fully honest about the expected results, I don’t prod my clients to spend more than they should on FB marketing, because it would mean undermining my own work in the long-term. I try to keep everything as long-term orientated as possible and should you wish to work with me, you should be prepared for both the good and the bad sides of that strategy. In case you are interested in this JV - please write me a PM so that we could begin discussing the more finer points in private. This JV is for you if you are looking to expand on your Web Design business and venture into some other areas in the internet marketing with my partnership. This opportunity is not appropriate for affiliate marketers however, I like to give my business the feel of a good partnership, based on trust and aligning business goals, so I need a person who is ready to work with me building the same experience for the hopefully newly acquired clients. Best regards!
