Crowd funding experiment: How to sell consulting work without being slimy

No more slimy sales consultants

No more slimy sales consultants

Whilst I’m focussing most of my time on The Brightoneers and a couple of new ventures, I thought it would be fun to launch a little experiment using crowd funding, not least because we have a Brightoneers event on crowd funding coming up next week.

My goal with this project is to bring more integrity into the world of business by helping change the world of selling away from manipulation and persuasion, using empathy instead. This is drawing on my experience heading up business development in my previous company.

If you provide consulting services and would like to learn how to sell more effectively without turning into a slime-ball then this is for you.

Here’s a rosy-cheeked video of me (the heating was up too high when I filmed it!) as an introduction. You can see all of the project details on indiegogo. Feel free to back it or pass it on to anyone you know who works as a consultant. As I said, it’s a bit of an experiment and I don’t know if it’ll meet its target but I wanted to learn more about crowd funding and there’s no better way than to try it out. Thanks!

  1. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring
    a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of
    the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!

  2. You need to work with the costs and make sure that the plan is something that you can afford.
    Be thorough and diligent in what you are researching before you
    commit or buy. In some cases, the features offered by the web hosting company are
    clearly stated on their Web – Pages.

  3. Different Region The Playstation Store is operated differently on different regions.
    Once installed the program can be run; however the frame rate
    of v – NES is rather slow on a Black – Berry Curve and there isn’t much that can be done to improve
    the performance. This is only a preview and will be followed up by
    a full review when Think – Geek.

  4. Most of my marketing strategies have been developed by seeing a “model” work in another business field.
    Our culture is dominated by a paradigm which often puts the cause of our suffering on the exterior.
    With a 50cm waist and 81cm hips, Ioana Spangenberg’s hourglass figure has made her famous over night after pictures of her incredible 20-inch waist began to circulate the Internet and also caused a lot of controversy.

  5. In 1928, the Castellammarese War broke out between Masseria’s family and members of a rival family
    bossed by another Mustache Pete named Salvatore Maranzano.
    He’s bouncing around on floor, did a casual
    triple full, and is the only guy so far to do something real on vault — a couple handspring double fronts,
    to be exact. Many companies are able to operate with impunity because
    the company is owed by an American Indian tribe.

  6. hello there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked up anything new from right
    here. I did however expertise several technical issues using
    this site, as I experienced to reload the site a lot of
    times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK?
    Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will very frequently affect your placement in google and could
    damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Well I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and
    could look out for much more of your respective interesting content.
