Most professions have natural synergies with professionals in other industries. Use the Listings Directory or Connector Pages to find strategic partners and create referral programs. You can do this in two ways, either pay the person a percentage for every closed sales opportunity they provide you or subcontract for them and have them profit for every hour you work. Examples:
- "Business is busy, I'm growing too fast and my accounting records are a mess!" ~potential lead for a bookkeeper or virtual administrator.
- "Work has been hectic ever since our HR Manager left!" ~potential lead for a recruiter or a HR professional looking for a new job.
- "Business is going well but could be better. I need a website to increase my marketing effort." ~potential lead for a web developer.
Often times, companies offer employees $500 - $10,000 if they find candidates that fill open positions. Post your employer's open positions on LeadVine's Listings Directory, ask the community to help find qualified candidates, and split the referral fee with them.
Companies spend up to 20%-25% of a candidates first year's salary to fill open positions. Post the position on the Listings Directory, offer a referral fee, and have the community fill your open positions. Recruiters usually cold call the community and ask if they know any candidates. Skip the middle man and have the community find you candidates for a fraction of the cost.
Are you looking for a 1955 Chevrolet Impala, a Mickey Mantle rookie card, a hard to find art piece or a forex dealer? Post the information in the Listings Directory and have the community help you find what you are looking for.
As the saying goes: "It's who you know". You may not have time to network, keep up with contacts, or go to social functions, but you can find well connected people in the Connector's page and have them help you find new sales leads. Use LeadVine to create a sales team looking for opportunities for your company.
