The case for big business software automation
The longer I’m in business (been over 30 years now) the more I appreciate how money breeds money.
Business Automation Software is one of those things, in your early years, you just don;t think makes sense. The difference of course is you implement it fully ONCE you can justify it. And then it becomes a “PROFIT MULTIPLIER” and not a “business EXPENSE”.
For any business that has its own products, they should almost certainly have an affiliate scheme. There are hundreds of solutions, from self hosted, to rented, to on-line services. As always with the web, there are even totally free versions of all of those. But the point is, once you are banking large, you don’t risk it all on some web 2 start up, run by 2 Indians in 2 different districts and hosted on a shared hosting account with poxgator.
One such example is HASOFFERS which is an affiliate management “service” run in the Amazon S3 Cloud so it is scaleable.
They charge from $99 to $799 per month and already serve over 10,000 businesses, including some more major corporates. When you look at their offer, you will see why.
They even have a 30 day trial period, so you can see how good their service is.
Some things just smell right, don’t they?
