    Hello guys,

    A friend of mine is a professional online business consultant and he is currently trying to expand his clientele so he offered me 5 brief online business consultations (one pagers) for FREE.

    These consultations are for:

    - Someone who already has a business and would like a professional opinion on solving a problem or possible ways to grow his business

    - Someone who always wanted to start his own online business but never did

    I don't know what to do with them and Digital Point is the best place to give them (it helped me a lot when I first started trying internet marketing) so here you go. It is also my way of saying "Thank you DP".

    Anyone interested just post below. The first 5 will get one consultation each.

    Enjoy!

    Hello there.

    Not sure what you are implying. :)

    I think it is pretty straightforward. Just helping out a friend.

    Okay, I am willing to "bite" on this offer and suggest that the consultation be provided as part of this thread so that all can see. I started a thread on DP a while back asking for marketing/product ideas to enhance my existing business. Here is a link to that thread:

    https://forums.digitalpoint.com/thr...sed-product-for-distribution-company.2693887/

    Of course, your friend can offer other marketing/sales assistance if it is determined that another approach would be more beneficial. The above link has more information about my business but please let me know if you need anything else.

    I look forward to the consultation. Thanks.

    It really great to provide business consulting services free of cost. But still I think it’s difficult initially. But however your friend needs to keep his passion up. Business consulting is already ruled by Big MNC's like KPMG. But still I believe who have passion in the mind and courage in the heart can’t be defeated.

    I'm just curious why your "friend" hasn't taken the time to post about it himself ;)

    Note that I have heard nothing from the OP or his "friend" since I agreed to be a guinea pig for him.

    That is because the "friend" exists only in the OP's imagination. Smooth...real smooth...not particularly honest but smooth.;)

    Well, I suppose if the OP had posted a link or inserted some other promotional information, it might have been smooth. But, it is not so smooth if you or your (imaginary) friend don't at least try to deliver on the promotional offer. You tend to get bad press as the OP is getting now in this thread.

    I will pass this along to people I know who might need it. I will also recommend you in general if I like what I see.
