I need some advice on doing business.?

I need some advice on doing business.? Topic: How to write ad for newspaper
April 26, 2019 / By Orval
Question: I have been asked to represent a company and they have asked me to advertise and promote them using my own company as a local representative (they are outside the US) and that they will pay for the advertising charges. We have a written understanding that any business that develops through me will have me included in their commissions. Before placing the ad in the newspaper, they have asked me to include their website in the ad. Question now is: How will I know which business has come through the advertisement, since the ad will have their direct website (and contact details)? OR....... How do I tell them that I wont include their website? Any help or ideas will be appreciated, I'm young and am starting out in business. Thanks.

They will need to set up a page on their site for your company - example, if they are company XYZ and you are company ABC, then the website address you put in your ad would be: www.XYZ.com/ABC - the page would then re-direct to their home page, but there would be an internal flag attached to that visitor (via cookie) indicating that they came from your ad.

Lenard Originally Answered: I am starting up my own business and need advice on getting a Taxpayer ID and business credit (see additional)
Hi, I am formerly an employee of an acctg. agency in some way, maybe I can help in your problem. 1. First of all you have to have a Tax Identification of your own before organizing papers that you have to submit with our government agencies such as SEC or Securities and Exchange Commission if you are planning to have a Large Scale business, while If it's only a single proprietorship then you have to endorse your business to Department of Trade & Industry. You should get first a Business Permit And Municipal License to make it sure that your business will be legal. Then you also have to enroll your business with the Social Security Systems if you like to pay your employees legally because it is the only way that you can do to make sure that your employees will benefit from you. Taxpayer ID for company is one way to make sure that all your Expenses and Receivables are properly computed via Financial Statements, this will be the basis for your tax payments. 3. In opening bank account especially if for business you will be needing of course your Business Registration Certificate and your license. They might want to know also your Assets. Of course the money itself. 4. If the truck is brand new there will be no problem you can legally name it on your company name, if its second hand you will have to prepare an ABSOLUTE DEED OF SALE to make it transfer to the company's or your business name. I hope a little bit of it can help you.

You are being scammed. Do not trust anyone from outside your country. If you cannot get at them to file suit when they screw you, don't get involved.

Jai Originally Answered: Do anybody here own a landscaping business, or if you own a business period can you give me advice?
Landscaping is a tough business. Here's why. The barriers to entering this business are low - it is relatively cheap to acquire the equipment necessary to do this type of work. That means that you will ALWAYS be dealing with new people in the business that are offering to do work at really low prices - prices that they cannot sustain. I recommend that you be the absolute best in the business and charge a reasonable and appropriate fee for your great work. If you try to compete with the low price guys, you will not make money. My best advice is to PUT TOGETHER A BUSINESS PLAN and PUT IT ON PAPER!!! Go seek out a successful person in a similar industry and offer to buy them lunch. Over lunch, show them your business plan and ask them what they think and what ideas they may have. By putting your plans on paper and looking at the actual money it will take to get the business up and running, you will be more prepared than 99% of your competition. Knowledge is power and those who are most prepared almost always win.

The first thing you need to do is get buisness cards made up and pass them out around your town. Put them on counters of local drug stores and give some to friends and family members. Make sure you have all of the equipment needed, or at least enough to start with. Also, you need to understand the taxes and how all that works. Your best bet on getting business without much overhead is to do a list when you go to someone's home, draw out a rough diagram of what you plan to do and then ask for a certain percent down to take on the project so that you can go purchase supplies for that particular job. Also, you can price the plants and then call them with the estimate the next day. I don't recomend buying anything as far as plants up front because that is too much overhead to start a business with. Also try passing flyers out in some of the more "high end" neighborhoods.
