Ok my marketing skills suck. So a friend of mine's wife is outa work has been for sometime. He and she have said the she would be willing to go out an market my business for me. We really haven't fully discussed pay. Although 10% of new business has been tossed around. I have been thinking about it but think there are some pitfalls. For one I don't wan't to continue to pay her 10% forever. I am thinking about limiting the time to say no more than 1-3 years. I don't think I should have to pay her as an employee since basically I will be letting her go out and market as she sees fit. I am thinking of paying some mileage but wonder about that as well as to how I could write that off on my taxes. So has anyone consider hiring someone to market their business? Although I would have to tell her about the business and some of the do's and don'ts to what I can and can not do. Anyone ever hire a marketer and did they bring in additional work?
