About us

Background

The World has changed drastically in the last 40 years!
The pace of life,  has rapidly increased due to the development of technology. This technology has also changed business.

Every Business has lots of competition. Business Failures are very high!
Online shopping is rapidly taking more and more business away from the traditional brick-and-mortar businesses.

Business wisdom tells us that in order to increase business you need to increase advertising.
There are 3 problems with this traditional approach-

  1. The costs of advertising is extremely high. Many SME’s cannot afford decent advertising campaigns. Even online advertising has become increasingly expensive.
  2. Advertising is not as effective as it once was, due to the abundance of adverts everywhere you look!
  3. Advertising is a shot-gun approach, the few people who see your ad may not be in your target market or your area!

The Sales Crew Solution

It is a known fact that the most effective form of advertising is word of mouth! “If a friend or family member recommends a product or service to you, you are 10x more likely to purchase that product or service! Do you agree?”

Sales Crew have developed a unique service around this concept, that partners S.M.E.’s to a large Team of Word of Mouth Marketers.

S.M.E.’S – or Suppliers, advertise their products or services on the Sales Crew platform, and offer a referral commission on any sales generated from leads supplied by Crew members.
This referral commission could be a fixed amount or a percentage of the sales value. This results in a win/win for both parties! .The Supplier has an additional sales force of hundreds or even thousands of extra Sales people. These come with no overheads like salaries, office space, company cars etc. The Supplier only has the cost of a commission – which he would pay out to his salespeople anyway! The Crew member can select businesses to promote based on his or her interests and experience, and the commission offered. The Crew member could refer leads on a full-time or part-time basis, and would earn a referral commission on all sales concluded.

For the Supplier – more sales means more turnover which means more profits!
For the Crew - Earn a full-time or part-time income by passing on leads to Suppliers!
