Marketing Time: Selling my 6 Figure "Sexiest Offline Career" I will keep it brief as possible, but I have successfully exited the niche career I developed the last 7 years. My experience has led me to new ground and a handfull of high profile clients. You can easily find my post a year ago regarding what I do and why I have enjoyed it thoroughly. It has not been a cakewalk, and more than once I threw my $100 headset through the wall, but the avenues it has opened, the success of doing quality work and making a difference in people's lives is incredible. The work involves credit & collection services, however the perspective clients aren't limited to collections at all. Many fields such as judgment collection, skip tracing, public records, due diligence work, background checks and various investigative services are in demand. My niche developed in focus as my skils & experience developed so my client base adjusted several times. I focused on clients that performed, and built my brand by delivering results & eventually consultation. My fees were a value, and I learned how best to position myself as a brand. My commitment to being the best led me to be more profitable within the scale I operated on. Others in my field often go for higher volume, which I despise but it can easily be done. The individual that started it in my area (small town) has sold his practice 3 times now for $.5 M. Yes that included a client base, but getting business is not that difficult, for me at least. The financial reward is excellent as well. Information is often free, but the need for "condition specific" information in the civil arena is as wide open as it gets. I hesitate to be too specific, but it's rewarding in every way. If you want to see how hot the category is, check out the popular online site Docusearch. http://www.docusearch.com/ I know some of his numbers, it's amazing. That site isn't really a competitor in my focus, but they represent an average client that are servicable. I never really care about per hour, but I would say a very conservative figure would be $50-$120 an hour. Some of my best $ days: $40,000 contractual agreement for 1 service. $10,000 day $600 in 55 minutes. I'm wanting to locate the right people and present it in a fair and honest manner when I do. I can easily build a client base 10x over without worrying of too much competition, but I am moving forward so I need to "list/sell" my brains. I am open to variable agreements with individuals because some may want more or less "hands on" with me. I have no way to guarantee major success, but I willl only work with individuals I believe will be successful and posess the brain power needed. Working with them post sale is likely the best way to present this. I want buyers to be successful. Is there even another forum that you can recommend? The entreprenuer and home biz sites drive me nuts. Craigslist isn't really a good target either. This is not for everyone by any means, but it isn't rocket science. I appreciate your input.
