JOIN OUR "INVESTMENT PROPOSAL" DEAL FLOW
We intend to make participation in this deal flow listings 'pipeline' as easy and simple as possible.
Please read through all the steps here, to get an idea of what we offer. Then go to 'Action Steps' next, at the bottom of this page and make sure you don't forget anything.
First, go to our Deal Flow List page, click here. Use a descriptive title, copy and paste title and message on this page by using the form provided. On the page you can be more descriptive. Make sure to make your title and first sentence attractive, this will be the first part that anyone going through all the investment proposals will see. Then put the most important part about your deal in the first paragraph. Keep the attention going. The form that you create is a new webpage. You can use the URL of this page for your own marketing purposes, in your email messages, on your postings on Linkedin, etc. This way you won't have to re-create it over and over again.
Present this 'teaser' in a compelling way: the response you want is that an investor will ask for more information, either an executive summary, or a complete set of business documents: business plan, financials, etc.
This 'teaser' is a short version of your Executive Summary, which in itself, is a short version of your business plan. The purpose of this short form is to inform potential investors in a timely and effective way of what you have. If an investor is interested in your sector/industry, the size of your deal, the management and experience of your business, and the product or service that you have, they will respond by commenting back under your entry. Either Facebook, or the 'Business-Funding-Insider' website will notify you of any comments.
You will take advantage of our website rankings, and of the marketing of our site and Facebook page.
Next, click the link to our Facebook page, 'like' it, then post your investment proposal in the "Write Something..." box. Use only a short teaser, preferably one or two paragraphs. You can make it longer, but you better wait for responses before offering more information. Start with a brief title that gets the attention while describing in a few words what you are looking for. Copy and paste your investment proposal into our Facebook deal flow page.
Now you have two free listings.
Next, WE publish our 'deal flow' page on our Linkedin group Business-Funding-Insider, and into our Twitter account, and on our RSS feed. Then we market it to potential investors. (By posting on our Facebook and/or website page, you give us the permission to post the same content on our Linkedin and Twitter accounts for your marketing benefit, or to any potential investors.) We take care of this step, you don't have to do anything.
Next, when doing this, also copy and paste your message on your own Facebook page (you can do this straight from the little Facebook comment window at the bottom of this page) and Twitter account (if you don't have a Twitter account, get one, and 'Follow' ours). This is all part of the strategy of 'Marketing your Investment Proposal'.
Next, subscribe to our RSS feed. If you don't know what that means, go to our blog page and click on the (?) next to 'Subscribe to this Site'. You will find how to get another great time saving tool to stay informed online.
Why Facebook? What does Facebook have to do with business?
Facebook's formats are easy to use and offer easy sharing. Facebook has an incredible number of people subscribed. It's a good platform to get started to make your information go 'viral'.
does that mean? It means that it has the potential and leverage to get
your information in front of an amazing number of people. Once
your deal is listed on our page, it is ready to be seen. You also shared
your project with your own circle of friends (you can target or
customize your post in the privacy settings). One of them may make a
comment or share it, and before you know it, thousands of people will
have seen your post. Every comment you get either on your page, or on
ours, will put your information in front of more and more circles of
friends or fans.
Go to 'Action Steps' next.
Don't wait, get going now. Line up your documents, start marketing your deal!
