Well we offered them legal advice to get out of the contract and where able to sell them on an online marketing strategy to sell the business with a $1500 monthly retainer for a max of 6 months and a lower percentage on the asking price. We have created many leads as the company is actually extremely well priced and I know will sell it soon. It just amazes me how people try and take advantage and never add value … yes the onus is on me to not just be another snake oil salesman but of that I am very confident.
Strangely the strategy has gained momentum as we have another request to do the same thing for another company. So online marketing to sell offline companies who knew the market was desperate for an online perspective well hear in South Africa anyway and the monthly retainers are decent with a decent sales commission at the end.
