    I got this idea about being a local sales person to sell Internet Marketing services. So a sales person would find costumers and sell them SEO services, websites and other Internet Marketing Stuff. The only problem it's kind of hard to do a full time sales job and provide the services that are sold to costumers. So what if a sales person just does the sale and send info to a affordable SEO company they do all the work.

    1. Person does the sale (full time)
    2. Info goes to a job manager
    3. Job manager makes a right decision on who to hire & hires and manages IM provider
    4. SEO / IM provider does the job and manager makes sure job is done right
    5. Sales person delivers the works to a costumer


    Of course this all can be done by one person but I think it will be more efficient to divide it between 3 people. The only concern I see for a sales person is that a Manager can steal costumers if he wants to. Is there any way to make sure costumers don't change sides?


    Benefits:
    Sales Person- Can be a noob and get paid high commission and grow your IM business. don't need much knowledge in SEO, just need to talk good
    Manager - Super easy job just need to know right IM providers
    SEO provider - Well IM gets a lot of work without any effort, just need to deliver on your promise

    Downside:
    Sales Person- Manager can screw you over by contacting existing costumers and cutting your commission and saving them a lot of money. This is the biggest concern I see for a sales person. Need to figure out a way to avoid this. (maybe split jobs between managers)
    Manager - Sales person can go directly to IM providers, but just manager doesn't need to reveal the IM contractors he/she is using. I don't see many downsides on this. To secure this Mnager position just need to get more sales people. (please point out if there any downsides)
    SEO provider - Well if SEO/IM contractor does a good job there is simply no reason to worry.

    Some services can be CL posting for companies, Website design, booklets, SEO work, Data Research, e-mail marketing, Post Card mailings etc.....



    Based on observation of posts on "HELP need to make money" posts. This idea might help both sides noobs and Pros.
