Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit our site, we look forward to working with you. Please take the time to read a little about the job opportunity below. If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you promptly.
Who We Are
If you’ve clicked on our ad or stumbled across our website you are probably wondering what M5Media is… We are a web design and development business who market our services almost exclusively to other businesses, most of them small or medium size businesses. We are new to the Minneapolis area and looking to expand. We have over 8 years experience with web development and design and offer significantly lower prices than most of the local competition.
What We’re Offering
M5Media is offering a way for you to make a quick buck (or quite a few bucks) by offering sales commissions on web site referrals. The idea is this: You can use any means at your disposal to recruit potential customers. You can go door-to-door, telemarketing through salesgenie.com, or just refer ‘someone you know’. Any other means you can think of (as long as their legal) are fair game too. Here’s what we are looking for in our sales force:
- A Working Knowledge of how the Internet Works and how it can benefit a business (technical background a plus)
- Good People Skills
- A Friendly Demeanor & Go Get ‘Em Attitude
See the ‘White Papers’ section of our website to learn more about how a website can help a business.
Why We’re Doing It
It’s pretty simple really. We are simply looking to expand and are willing to pay you to help us do it. You don’t even have to make a real effort if you don’t want to, it could simply be someone you know who wants or needs web development or design services. Here is what we are looking for (again, pretty simple):
- A Qualified Lead – someone who is genuinely interested in our products and services and would like to know more specific details about them.
- A Local Business (Twin Cities Metro Area or at least in Minnesota) connect us with someone we can meet in person with or work with over the phone.
Sound too easy? It’s really not but we do have one thing in the fine print. If the deal never happens you will not get your commission, that’s pretty easy to understand right? That means that submitting leads to us that are bogus will only hurt you and waste our time. We understand that not every deal will work out, but if you’ve done your job and sold them on the idea and benefits, it will rarely not happen.
Please don’t report leads that lead nowhere, it wastes everybody’s time and if you do it too often we will simply stop taking referrals from you. We are an honest business and also understand that you are taking a small risk in trusting us.
So to sum things up you are in the business of referring qualified leads to us, and you don’t need any special skills to do it. When you report a lead to us for someone you recruit (or just happen to know) we will set up an appointment with them to discuss their project. You don’t need to know anything technical about the project (that’s our job) although as much detail as you can provide is a plus.
At this point your commitment to the job is done, you’ve identified a potential customer and let us know about it. We then make an appointment with them to discuss the project. If things go through you’ll get a check in the mail, no questions asked. You can feel free to contact the lead you sent us and make sure we are good to our word.
Web Development is a very customized thing and jobs range from $500 to $10,000 or more depending on the scope of the project. Your job is just to bring the developers (us) and the clients (people you’ve identified who could benefit from our services) together and you get paid. On a $5,000 job that’s $500 bucks!, all for just identifying the right person and letting us know about it.
Our commission is pretty lucrative and you only have to do as much work as you want to (or none at all). Just email ‘email@example.com‘, and submit the following information:
- Name and Business of person you are referring
- Contact phone number and email address of the person you are referring
- Notes about the project
- The person’s budget (if applicable)
- Your Name and Phone Number
- Your Address (so we can send you a check)
