    Exclamation I NEED some help in marketing an OFFLINE client

    It is tax season! I pitched an Affiliate marketing type deal to a local tax prep business. I will get $30 per sale that I bring to the company.

    They do personal taxes and can do them nationwide, not just locally.

    So, I have a few options. I can go the Internet route and the local route. I want to drive 1,000 new sales to her business by April 16th.

    Can some one please help me come up with a plan of action both online or offline?

    I can offer $20-$25 incentive to businesses that send someone to me that results in a sale - so I am all about reciprocating and joint venture kinda things.

    Please let me know. Starting Jan 15th I have to hit hard and fast.

    I know you are some of the brightest marketers around, maybe this is a good way to get my feet wet.

    It's 5 January, so it's a wee bit late to hope for major results this year from SEO efforts.

    Social media marketing works faster, but how do you push something as "uncool" as tax prep via social media?

    PPC is another option that turns quick results -- but you'll need to find a way to accurately measure the results of your PPC spending.

    How does your client monitor affiliate sales? Is it through an online URL, or do the people have to say "Charles recommended you guys" when they call to setup an appointment?

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I'm hoping that's the case! **free money**

    Will mentioned PPC. That would be my first thought as well. It's definitely more in your control than relying on other people.

    I am scared to death of PPC. I have never tried it successfully.
