How would I go about finding a vice president for a start-up business (read: no working capital to pay salary)?

Asked by prolificus (6492 points ) March 21st, 2014

I started an s-corp last November with the intention of running an e-commerce. Quickly I learned that unless I have a huge inventory in a niche market, the e-commerce biz is more hassle than worth.

So, I regrouped and started an online marketing biz for other businesses to advertise and promote special deals. There is potential for growth in the target market I’ve chosen (I don’t want to share because I don’t want to promote the biz here).

In order for the biz to grow, someone will need to put a lot of energy in doing direct marketing to the target businesses. I don’t have the resources to do this alone. Also, I do not have the resources to hire someone. However, if the right person were to take charge of marketing, he / she could reap the rewards (commission and then salary once the biz is steady).

I’m already advertising for sales reps, but I’m not receiving any nibbles (I do all my marketing via social media: Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, reddit, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc etc.).

Thoughts?
