Have a book of business? Call on businesses?
Add another income stream by referring
your existing business contacts!
Here are the facts – it’s hard to make it with one income stream. So adding another one with little effort can help create a cushion for you, maybe pay down debt or create that nest egg… or frankly pay the higher gasoline bill at the pump.
And you don't have to "work" at it. Just introduce me to your contacts… give them my business card or flyer. Most of my other business bird dogs say "hey Mr./Ms. business owner... I think you should talk with _____ they've helped some of my other businesses that I see.”
The most successful bird dogs say – (as they hand them my card) "can she give you a call?" What’s the best number she can reach you. Of course I will explain to you what I'm doing - how I help business. (and I do).
You will know everything up front to make sure that you understand what I do – and frankly – by me helping them – it will keep them in business… so they can keep doing business with YOU!
What do you earn as a one time referral fee? When I meet with them, if they give me less than $1,000 then you earn $50. If it's over $1000, you get a $100 fee. Over $3000, then you get $200. You receive a fee of $300 if I walk out with over 6K (they can use check or credit card). Referral checks go out to you approx 2 weeks after sale (sooner after I get my commission). Yes, you will be filling out a 1099 at start – most of my bird dogs earn over $600 within their first 2 months so it is reportable.
Those Bird Dogs who refer consistently earn addtional bonuses. I appreciate referrals and introductions. I do my best to make sure that your clients are happy and that you are too! :)
See what our clients say about us at the bottom of this page.
What are the best companies... who am I looking for?
Businesses that have receivables or who take checks (list at bottom of this page). You see, I help them to recover late monies due them in a very cost effective manner. Usually less than 10% (compaired to the 50% that traditional collections take). Often see it around 5% and return on investment of the system I've seen as high as 1700%. Our system gets results and help keep clients.
It's a great system and most business owners understand that it increases their bottom line by capturing funds they have already earned... but that haven't made it to their wallet.
Who can "bird dog" for me??
Here are types of bird dogs that seem to do well, but read on as I'm expanding my markets: Insurance agents who cater to businesses, sales reps who call on medical companies (and who can get to bus owner), pharmaceutical reps who have good relationships with the doctor/owner, aflac type insurance agents that cater to business, dental equipment reps, sales people to contractors, health insurance agents who sell to business groups, credit card machine sales people… maybe you? Who do you sell to?
Let me know your markets. info@BusinessBirdDogs.com
Here’s the way it works:
If they say I can call them, I do. You email me their phone and email address. I call once (and usually have to leave a message and I mention that you introduced me and thought I might be of service). Then I send a follow up email. I DO NOT CHASE THEM. If they have a relationship with you, then usually it takes a couple of days and I have an appt. I have many bird dogs and cannot keep chasing the prospect. I have found if I don’t get a response with a week or so, it wasn’t a real lead. (although I have had times when I get a callback months later – of course you still get the referral fee when they get set up. :)
Here are the businesses that tend to need my help including my expanded markets:
Propane/Fuel Oil Suppliers
Do you sell to/ have relationships with any of these types of businesses?
