This project involves the following marketing services:
1. Search on [url removed, login to view] for contact information about USA Associations Guru / Experts / Professionals in specific fields (list will be provided) and entering that data like name of that association, website, phone number, etc. in an Excel file (template to enter data will be provided). For example, Plumbers Association of USA.
2. Make calls to those associations and sell them the idea that it would benefit the members of their association to inform them about our website. Capture these details in the Excel file. A success is where that organization agrees to display our website information to their members in a newsletter and / or on their website.
3. Follow-up phone calls and emails to make sure that those organizations/associations are displaying our website information on their website.
An affiliation will be treated as a success when a link of that Guru Association website page that has da Gurus banner is submitted as a proof.
MS-Excel, Email, Word Processing
Attention to detail, perfect oral and written communication skills in English, good team work, diligent and Internet savvy.
Ours is a small out-of-pocket personal website start-up with a limited marketing budget. Your activity will be limited to looking up Guru Association websites, telemarketing and obtaining affiliates. All the supporting information and formats have already been prepared. We have put in a lot of time and effort for the following:
- Clearly defined requirements and very specific parameters for this exercise to ensure success without deviations. List of fields where Guru Associations have to be searched on Google has been compiled.
- We have prepared an Excel file template where information about the associations of Gurus can be collected (name, website, phone, email, etc.). Further information about the telemarketing call details, affiliations page, etc.
- To help and support the winner of this project with their marketing, we have also prepared suggested material for the sales calls and emails. You may tweak it to get the best results.
- We have created relevant Guru Affiliations page that outlines benefits of affiliating with our website and also kept the banner ads (animated and text-based) and text blurb ready. So that whenever an association agrees to inform their members about our website, the details are ready for the marketing team to share with those affiliates.
- Send me a private message / PMB to see the detailed file ahead of time to understand the task in detail.
To ensure the best value for money, this assignment is being posted as a "commissions only" project. Here is an example of the payment plan:
$xx for every Guru Association where our website information is published in their newsletter only.
$yy for every Guru Association where our website information is published in their website only.
$zz for every Guru Association where the our website information is published in their newsletter as well as on their website.
Maximum two affiliates in a field. There are 36 specific fields. Maximum potential payout = 36 x 2 x $zz = $nnn.
Please look at the attached MS-Word file for complete details about what should be provided in your bid and also what are the exact milestones and payment terms. General bids without review of the attached document will not be considered.
Only marketing firms from USA and Canada should bid for this.
This is a first of a series of other campaigns. If the Marketing Team exceeds our expectations, then definitely more work will flow to them.
