This Dog's Life (.co) is growing and we are looking to bring on a marketing person. While we have a small monthly budget for marketing, we don't have a lot to pay the person. While this may be a sign it is too soon to bring someone on, I was wondering if there are other options? I realize there is equity to offer and a deferred salary but any other model?
I am mostly focused on having the person drive viewers to the site via paid advertising placement and was seeing if anyone does a sales model. So for money received through ads on the site, they could get a cut of it. Is this common? Or would the better route be to possibly just hire a third-party to manage these ads?
We are just really looking to find viewers in an efficient and quick way.
I would love to speak with you my company was created to solve this exact issue (www.NoMadAve.com). We would with any budget as big or small as you have and will place digital paid advertising. Let me know if you want to speak offline!
We might be able to help and work with you and a small budget as long as there are reasonable expectations, goals, etc. Feel free to contact me directly.
Personally, I've always found that when you hire people on spec, etc. you don't get the best performance - regardless of the best intentions on both sides.
