Hello All, So i left my day job because i had an urgent project proposals from one of my contacts and so simultaneously i am working on my own start up too. Basically to start with and to raise some capital funds i will be managing and optimizing online advertising campaigns for top brands on social networks, search engines and a network of websites relevant to the brands through the use of several available advertising platforms. And there is more to what services we will be providing but at this stage i was thinking of hiring a sales executive and a business development manager to support in getting client on board. I talked to this sales outsourcing company who said that they will be making cold calls to potential clients provided i give them the list to make calls. I also talked to some experienced managers if they would like to support me in business development role and they said that its a time consuming process to build a relationship and i guess thats correct. I was also advised to get the contacts of marketing heads from linkedin, message these marketing heads from linkedin and explain them the strategy and check if they would like to work with us or not. So what is your suggestions to get started? Does anybody have an experience in this? Are there any other successful start ups here?
