Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
SearchMarketMe is stepping up – in a big way – to make it easier to open an online marketing agency.
SearchMarketMe announced two new financing options (including an industry first) designed to make it easier for prospective “Agency Owners” to access its unique training and support system for opening and growing online marketing agencies.
“We’re putting our money where our mouth is,” said President & CEO, S. Boyd Karren, “and making it easier for entrepreneurs to start businesses.”
The first financing option, RollingStart™ was created in response to a poor commercial lending environment.
“Banks aren’t lending, and would-be Agency Owners were being denied the funds they need to start their online marketing agencies,” said Karren. “SearchMarketMe will make financing available at reasonable rates and agreeable terms, without the hassles and limits of commercial banks.”
The RollingStart™ program provides in-house financing for up to 80% of the initial program fee, and monthly payments starting under $400.
“This removes so much pressure from someone starting a new business,” said Karren. “With RollingStart™ a new Agency Owner can ease into the business with a down payment under $5,000, and get trained and ramp up the new business without necessarily having to cut the ‘lifeline’ of their current job.”
Additionally, SearchMarketMe is introducing a “first” within the franchise and business opportunity industry, called Pay-for-Performance™, which more directly ties SearchMarketMe’s success to that of the Agency Owners it trains and supports. With Pay-for-Performance™ the initial fee of $23,900 is dramatically reduced to $10,000, and a higher royalty percentage is applied.
“This is a clear expression of the confidence we have in our ability to help an Agency Owner become financially successful,” said Karren. “In today’s market, people want proof of not only ability, but commitment. Deferring our compensation in this manner demonstrates both. We want to make our money by helping our Agency Owners succeed long-term.”
