Your Challenge

You need to earn good money, but you can’t work 40 hours a week, and part-time jobs don’t pay very well.

Our Challenge
We need to hire six-to-ten full-time people to handle marketing and sales of our product, but we don’t have the funding, and don’t want to give away ownership to get it.

Economic Challenges
• Make the price appealing because people are just not spending money they way they were two years ago. • Get the word out cost effectively • Build a compensation plan that encourages loyalty, even among independent contractors • Get the word out, and hire the people.

Our Responses to the Challenges
• Reduce prices on hard-copy goods • Use cooperative advertising from organizations like Costco and shared mailings • Seek out pay-per-sale compensation agreements • Seek out publicity • Offer 50% of Gross Profit • Engage people who work independently
