    Hey BHW members,

    I am looking for investors to expand my already existing start-up business. This is an offline business providing SEO services to local businesses.

    Why am I asking for investors?
    Although I do have a few clients that have signed up for my services, I am looking to expand this business rather quickly and would like to offer an opportunity for an investor(s) a chance to gain a ROI by assisting.
    How much am I looking for?
    I am looking to obtain $5,000 to land more clients which will go into advertising costs both offline and through adwords. The return on investment can be discussed through PM if anyone is interested as well as the advertising going into the business.

    How can I be trusted with this venture?
    As you can see, I am still relatively new to the site but will offer a few options in regards to controlling the capital.
    1. If you partner with me, you will have full access to the paypal account in which the funding would go to so that you can view transactions being made by simply just logging in.
    2. If you decide at any time that you are uncomfortable with the JV, you can simply log into the paypal account and move the capital back.
    3. Also you will receive all of my contact information, phone number, email, skype, anything you need.

    How long will it take to pay back the investors?
    Although I can't give a definite answer as it depends on what kind of ROI the investor is looking for, but generally will be a short term investment paid back asap as clients are signed.

    I understand that I will probably get responses back of "no one will invest with you because you are a noob" and to those, I would simply ask don't respond. This business has already started and I am just looking for additional capital to get it where I want it to be and offer an investor an ROI in return.

    I hope some of you consider this JV and I look forward to your responses. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.

    Thanks

    All the best. Would have been better, if you started this JV after making some reputation here.

    Yea 53 posts and an account that was created this year looking for 5k after so many scammers have been around the past couple months....ehhh not to knock you but thats a REACH. Also with no assurance of ROI this looks likes a no go. You really don't need that much to land customers but i guess you need 5k in your opinion. And this looks like a basic SEO service.......

    good luck tho

    I also recommend you to stay on this forum atleast a year and make some good relationship with people. Then only it is possible.

    Thanks for the information guys. I'll definitely be sticking around! Like I stated before, I don't need the capital as the business has already started, I was just offering a JV but I do understand about the post count. I have a seen a lot of people try to race to 50 just to post here within a month of starting their account lol.

    Appreciate the feedback though.
