My name is David Mottershead. I design websites for small businesses and the self-employed.
Most people praise my work (check it out) but, like all web designers, I still need to market my business. I could spend half my day on the telephone cold calling potential customers. We all know how frustrating that would be.
My time is better spent designing websites, helping existing clients, and learning new skills.
Most business owners are reluctant to talk with cold callers. It’s usually an unwelcome interruption to their day.
They will however, listen to their friends (real life or just on Facebook), colleagues, and customers. That’s where you can help me.
Virtually everybody knows someone who owns their own business or is self-employed. Most will need a website. It could be their first or they could have an old or poorly designed site that needs updating.
All you need to do is recommend my web design services to them. This could be as simple as posting a message on your Facebook page.
If they employ me to build them a website I’ll pay you well for the introduction; a whopping 20 percent of the web design fee paid. Design fees range from £99 ($150) for a budget site to thousands for a custom design.
How It Works
First of all you need to sign up using the form at the bottom of this page. The only requirements are you need to be 18 and have a Facebook profile.
After you’ve signed up and been accepted you then become eligible to receive commission on any business you send my way.
It’s surprisingly easy and takes little effort and time. More detail will be provided after you sign up but here are few examples of the things you could do.
- Speak to people you know that own or manage businesses. You will know people that need websites. They could be members of your family, friends, neighbours, your boss, or just people you meet in the pub.
- Write on your Facebook wall about my web design services.
- Invite your Facebook friends to like my business page.
- Send direct messages to your Facebook friends, particularly the ones you know that are self-employed or manage businesses.
- Talk to the owners of businesses you use. Everybody uses businesses on a regular basis. Ask them if they need a website. It could be your local restaurant or a service you use such as a plumber or electrician.
- If you run a blog, website or a popular Facebook page/group you could mention my services on it.
- If you own a business you could mention my services to your clients. Those in professions that spend a lot of time talking to their clients (hairdressers, beauty therapists, accountants etc.) are in a particularly good position to mention my services to appropriate people. Businesses with large mailing lists are also ideally placed.
New business coming my way from any of these methods would qualify as a lead and entitle you to commission. The customer does of course actually have to go ahead and pay me to build their website.
When someone contacts me with a view to me designing their website one of the first questions I’ll ask is how they found out about my services. Clear instructions to provide the source are included on my contact page. It’s in my interests to make sure commissions due are paid and uphold my reputation.
