Questions & Answers
Q: Interested in the Commercial (or affiliate/reseller) pricing for programs as a consultant/coach. Specifically, Business Valuation Model, Forecast & Budget Builder, Pricing & Breakdown Analysis, Profit Contribution Model, and Decision Assistant Model.
A: We provide an affiliate program which may suit. This program provides a 30% commission for sales. Full details can be accessed at www.bizpep.com This provides a high level of flexibility and is a simple means of initially establishing a revenue sharing arrangement. We also provide volume discounts for bulk license purchases for resale. For bulk license purchases in lots of 10 we can set up a reseller structure where Registration details/code can then be generated on an as required basis and distributed to your clients. This process allows you to receive margins on sales and control license issuing to your clients. To use this system you need to make a purchase of 10 or more licenses. Bulk discounts of 50% are available for volume purchases. Once an approved volume purchase transaction has been processed you will be issued with Registration Details for the total number of licenses. You can use these to register/upgrade software and issue individual client licenses. You can add additional licenses (in lots of 10) as required. If a reseller /volume discount structure is of interest please let me know the specific license titles, license type, and number of licenses required and I will provide further detail.
Q: Hi I purchased your BAS Excel software and I like it. However I would like one addition. Is it possible to incorporate in the same workbook on a new sheet an invoice template that will automatically transpose details on that invoice to the income sheet?
A: Yes, you can easily add a new sheet yourself and set it up as a template with input values linked to the income sheet however to automate across multiple invoices would require the use of macros and would required specific visual basic programming (multiple hours worth). If needed please provide additional detail on your requirements and how you would like it to work and I can provide further information.
Topic: SiteMap XML Software
Q: I need to know if your XML Sitemap software will work "well" with a directory site. I have nearly 3 million listings in the site now. I plan over 20 million listings. I've tried the xml-sitemaps.com software and it's failing to write to the sitemap.xml file, and, it keeps stalling. So, I need to know if "SoftSwot" XML Sitemap will work well. And, this must be a dynamic sitemap.xml file so that it updates automatically - either at intervals or when a change in the site is detected. I'm not concerned about submitting to search engines. Having a sitemap.xml file in the root of the site will be enough.
A: It depends on your site structure and server capacity. We do recommend the dynamic sitemap for sites upto 500 pages... This limit is really only related to server crawl time and time outs so it can be much larger. The best test would be to try it... the static and dynamic fnctionality is basically the same so you can try a quick static test to see the returned results and then move to a full dynamic file on your server.
Q: What business valuation value do I take from your software to tell my seller?
A: On the valuation page an Optimistic, Expected and Pessimistic Business Valuation are provided. This is a valuation range high to low. The mid range Expected value can be considered the most likely or average scenario ie fair value / price. Most business purchases are a negotiation so you may wish to offer lower vales initially ie a Pessimistic value. Initially the Applied Valuation equals the Expected Valuation this is simply provided so you can adjust and play with the calculated fiqures to determine possible impacts on forecasts etc ie what if I purchased for $x in which can you would input $x as the Applied Valuation to see the result? For a straight valuation you do not need to change the Applied Valuation. In general your target purchase price would be the Expected Valuation amount. If negotiating your initial offer would usually be below this amount. Hope that helps.
