Our Two-Punch Proposal for Web
Web development firms can make money using Task
Meister with current projects, and then again after you deliver. We call this
our Web Dev Package.
The first punch in the Web
Dev Package is how it helps you win new business and manage existing
projects. Besides the Task Meister account you use for internal activities, we
provide a half-price account you set up for your client. In your sales
mode, you can present Task Meister as a collaborative management tool that sets
you ahead of your competitors. You present a vision of the prospect gaining
unparalleled project visibility and involvement (on your terms).
You rise above your competitors as focused and well
tooled to answer the question on the minds of many prospects, "What happens
after I give you my money?" You can give them a Task Meister demo that shows
how they will be in the loop -- but within a structure that allows you to work
Once a project is underway, Task Meister becomes the
traceable way for in-process change orders from your clients to become billable
enhancements. No more disruptive mid-course maneuvers that clients haggle to
include in your fixed-price, fixed-schedule bid.
Ever have a problem with clients providing content or
a decision on a timely manner? Ever have a problem with a contractor delivering
their part on time? Task Meister allows you to task them, too, and for all
concerned to see when that has to be done to keep development on track.

show off your ability to leverage the internet to manage a development project.

You approach your client, who is by then familiar with
the benefits of Task Meister, with the option of converting it into their own
in-house task management tool. If you succeed, you gain a 20% margin on the
subscription for as many years as your client continues to use it. If you have
6 to 10 major open projects at any one time, projects you deliver on average
within 3 months, and you have a 50% success rate converting them into regular
$49/mo Task Meister users, your firm will earn $3,763/year more than it would
have otherwise. And the next year, this turns into $7,526/year.
Because you remain as a contractor on the "Assigned
To" list, your client can easily assign documented, billable tasks to you
through their Task Meister account. You become the simple choice for follow-on

procedure is simple. When you fill in the partner's application form, click the radio button for Web
Dev Package. Once we accept your application, we will provide you a RefCode
to use when you sign up for your first Task Meister account, the one you use to
manage internal tasks and to test drive task Meister.
If you sign up within one week of being issued the
RefCode, we will waive the subscription price. If you are using Task Meister
(picklists customized, over a dozen tasks listed) at the end of that week, we
will adjust your billing to start two months after that. Our motivation is not
to collect your $49, but to compete with your other time priorities so that you
are quickly using Task Meister. After you see how well it manages internal
tasks, we look forward to your use of it to manage your clients.
Every subsequent Task Meister account you open with
the same RefCode will be at half the published subscription price. To convert
that to a resale, you just change the billing and sysadmin contact to your
client. You get all the other Task Meister Partner benefits, including the
online commission accounting system.
