I am the operator of a New York company looking to craft a joint venture partnership with an interested high quality web design and programming operation. More specifically I am interested in a company that is already established with a functioning web presence of their own, perhaps from overseas, that is interested in co-branding their services with my company that will provide local promotion and leads as well as a professional prestige and market that comes along with a business located within New York City.
This joint venture will provide you with another channel for which to bring in business that you already have provisions for, only it will be branded under a different name and will have the added benefit of my local NY presence. It will give me the ability to focus on consulting with interested clients in person and identifying local connections and niches that can utilize web development services.
One of the services of value that I will provide under the joint venture brand will be a virtual spokesperson service utilizing local talent that can provide flash video introductions for web sites, similar to ispeakvideo dot com. You will also have access to this service if desired to add to your own portfolio of offerings under your own brand.
Skills, services and experience that the company/individual must have, or at least have access to:
-Web, blog and e-commerce design solutions with a variety of platforms including wordpress, joomla, drupal, oscommerce, etc. with an eye for creativity, top notch aesthetics and functionality in design.
-Flash design programing and animation capabilities
-Social networking platforms, facebook, myspace, twitter
-Programming web applications, widgets, mobile applications, iphone, sql, php, css, html, java, asp, xhtml, ajax etc, actionscript
-SEO, SEM, keyword advertising, google adwords
-Virtual assistants available for back office, data entry and administrative assistance
-Very good english skills and grammar for communication with me and clients when necessary
You will need to create a web site for the brand that will likely mirror the layout and services of the one that you already have.
This is a great opportunity to create a polished and successful brand in one of the greatest markets in the world as well as forge a lasting and mutually prosperous relationship.
One of the benefits of this relationships is that little to no adjustments are needed on your behalf aside from provisioning your company/operation to accept and do business through an added brand channel.
Please let me know of your skills, strengths and weaknesses and some ideas and or examples you may have for the partnership.
