I believe I must confess first, I do have and have had a number of different websites and so on. But everyone likes the internet because of the possibility of making some money and increasing their living. I am actually a construction worker, but going to college for a finance degree. I do know what is needed in creating a profitable business. It's what I want to do with my life. ---With that small tidbit, since I'm new to this forum... I have been planning the startup of a small private school. Private schools do make a lot of money, and they do cost a lot of money to start, that is why this isn't a conventional private school. It is a private school based on memory improvement. My organizations name is Abstract Schools. Besides what the school will be teaching (not conventional material existent)...I am in need of help when it comes to marketing. I do not have a lot of funds to start this, but have come up with the notion that if I can get students to pay a small portion of tuition before class starts to save their seat in classes that should be enough to pay for first months expenses, (class room space lease, and utilities as well as text books). ----- I was wondering if anyone had interests in such a market? Or had some information that could help me, I am in need of help with marketing, and know that having residents of New Jersey (USA) as the target market online would be best since that is where I am located, to handle the day to day operations necessary for a successful business. I know all business-related transactions and tasks and have those covered, I am just "stuck" on getting students. The preferred marketing method is and I think should be, online-based, due to it's ability to be much cheaper than conventional marketing methods. I am looking for help, to get those first few students and hopefully other students. To make a profit we need to have 20 students minimum. If we get more students who want to join a class will only start once there is a minimum of 20 students schedules for it, but no more than 35. The class lasts for 5 months, 2 or 3 days a week, 3 hours a day. The rate for the class is exceptional for the quality of teaching and guarantee we put behind our small private school. Does anyone think they are interested in helping with this startup? I am looking for someone experienced in search-engine-optimization and online marketing to help drive traffic to the organization's site in order to get students. I also offer payment per student registering at $ 200.00 to $ 500.00 dependent on the quantity of students who register or work put into this. If things do go well, we are definitely looking to hire a part-time (full-time in the future) online marketer or SEO specialist. ---- We know I came here without any credibility since I just joined this forum but if there is anything I can do to make this a even more serious offer/request for help please tell me so that I may meet such requirement. I am looking for help, but I am urgently ready to get this small private school underway. Please reply to this thread in a post, or through private message, I can also offer my e-mail if necessary, I understand communication is vital. Thank you for your time and consideration, it was greatly appreciated. From John Klyne, Note: I use John Klyne, as an online name, I do in fact own the Abstract Schools Organization, you'll find my real name on the site mentioned above. I was also unable to post a link, to the organizations site, if you do a quick search on google for "abstract schools" you'll find our site first on the listings.
