    Hello guys,

    A wealthy friend of mine recently showed interest in investing a fairly large sum of money into starting a PPC -> CPA business encompassing Facebook PPC, Adwords PPC and various CPA offers. When I say a fairly large amount, it's not really, just enough to get the ball rolling.

    I have:
    • Prior experience with both PPC and CPA
    • Numerous CPA accounts in good standing and a decent relationship with all of my affiliate managers

    So we agreed to form a partnership with him investing around $4,000 to pump into Adwords and Facebook PPC revenue with me doing the actual marketing, sounds like a great opportunity right!?

    The only problem being as he is a businessman he wants me to present it to him in a formal way and in the mean time provide him with an article or two on the subject matter to read to really get the "juices" flowing on the idea.

    Do any of you guys have prior experience in presenting ideas to an investor who doesn't have a clue about I.M.? Could any one give me some ideas or guidance on how to go about thoroughly explaining the topic matter to him in a simple yet effective manner?

    Although he is a close friend, I'm a professional by trade and it's not in my nature to cut corners.

    As well as this, could any good Samaritans here suggest a few really good informative and impartial articles on the topic that I can send him?

    Once we get the ball rolling I plan on making a journal in this forum to log my progress and hopefully inspire a few of you guys along the way.

    Kind regards,
    Jack

    Will Rep :p

    My suggestion: don't work with friends.

    Plus, $4k for you really isn't worth it if you need to present everything in a noob friendly manner.

    This.

    However, I outlined SEO and whatnot to a client who didn't understand but wanted to and just went through some basic explanations.

    While people are generally clueless in this field, they can usually understand basic things. Try going through some of the e-books we offer here for ideas.

    He's a wealthy man, so $4K could easily turn into a $50k investment if I can turn a tidy profit on the initial investment.

    Give him a nice pdf, which should include:
    -how the cpa system works (search slideshare.net, howstuffworks, or youtube)
    -Risks involved, ROI, analyses, projected revenue, buttom line
    Thats all I can think of right now.

    Just give him straight to the point answers. No fluff.

    Usually works best
