    I recently linked up with a marketing partner and a coder. I'm not super good at computers but marketing is something I love. I will not go into every aspect of the business as it would take forever, but heres the basic idea.

    I coldcall potential clients inquiring if they have a website or not. If they do I offer them SEO services, if not I tell them all they need to start is a basic website.

    Heres a fun fact: Almost 50% of small businesses do not have a website.

    After this I will go into the business with a portfolio of templates to choose from and other marketing techniques and packages. Almost all of the technical work will be outsourced and I will be the one cold calling and attending meetings.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask, I can't say that I will answer all of them because you need to come up with your own method.

    If you are at all interested in following a similar business platform I strongly recommend the Offline Marketing On Crack Audiobook and Offline Dragon. Both of which are free in the downloads section of this site.

    Watch these with a pen and paper and TAKE NOTES, ideas will come to you I guarantee.

    In this thread I will post my success, although I will be slow to update as I am currently living in a youth homeless shelter. It sounds weird to open a business from a shelter but I believe in my ideas.

    If a shelter kid can pull it off than so can you, believe in yourself.

    Nice good luck.

    Is your marketing partner working on the same things as you or is he doing something different to help the company?

    His first language is Spanish so he will be targeting Spanish speaking companies, I live in basically the barrio so theres a lot of small Spanish businesses.
