Bespoke software, exclusive for you to refer.

As you may or may not know, I have two main avenues of my business, and I have now combined the two to bring you a new exciting opportunity. If you have been intrigued by the title, read on, and I will explain what this means for you.

The first avenue of my business is custom made software and bespoke spreadsheets. Now I use Excel to produce both, but some solutions are simple spreadsheets, and others are more complicated. I achieve CRM solutions, project management systems and process management software, all within Excel, and often macro-free. This is not to mention spreadsheets to read, analyse and report on CSV exported files. In fact, I have a list of 30 problems which I have solved using Excel, and the list is growing. All of these solutions are custom made for each client, specifically designed to tackle each person’s unique demand.

The second avenue was born from the first, when I realised that many people don’t need a custom made solution, but they simply want to pick a standard solution off the shelf. Some people don’t want to have to decide what they want, they want to visit a website, watch a demo video, and buy the product. This avenue is perfect for them. I have demo videos, free trial versions and PDF brochures in my store. Now many of these store products have come about because someone has asked me to make a standard product. Most of the products in the HR section, for example, have been requested by HR professionals. They need a product to refer to their clients, so I am requested to make one and put it in my store, which can then be referred. The HR professionals can make their job easier, as they have a product to refer to their client, and I make a sale. Win/win.

So what is the new avenue? Simple, custom made solutions available for you to recommend. Do you have a product that you would like to see in my store? Something for you to recommend to your clients or affiliates. I am always looking for ideas for my store, so if you have any, I would love to hear about them. The advantage of you giving me ideas for a product, is that I would be happy to listen to what you think should be in the product. That way, you won’t be referring a product that does half the job. You will have input into the product, so you will be able to refer with confidence. In fact, I have decided to take this one step further. If you can guarantee me a certain number of sales (to be discussed) I will be happy to make you a custom solution, which will be exclusive to your clients or affiliates. This means that you could tell me what the product needs to do, and I will make it, and then put it up for sale. In this case, I will give you the website link (which will require a password) and it will not be available from my website. You would then be able to decide who you gave the password to, thus giving you exclusivity of the product.

So do any of these strike a chord with you? Do you need a custom made software solution or a bespoke spreadsheet? Do you have an idea of a spreadsheet that you would like to see available in our store? Or would you like to have an exclusive product available, for you to recommend to whomever you wish? If any of these apply to you, please get in touch. We can have a chat and see what we can do together.

All the best.
