I am looking for funding for a project that will run along similar lines to websites like, Checkatrade. The difference is that this site will be targeted towards security products and services such as the installation of intruder alarms, CCTV systems, Access Control and Fire Alarms.
Our USP will be that all our approved companies will be accredited by a national governing body who carry out audits of these organisations twice per year and all their employees are security checked and vetted.
None of the current websites like Checkatrade can guarentee that the companies they promote have security cleared staff and this is a feature we feel will be embraced by members of the public. People want peace of mind that their family members are safe in the hands of a reputable tradesperson whilst in their own home or business premesis.
The site would be funded by annual subscriptions from the companies who will be promoted on the site, at a rate of £25 per month. Currently we have access to over 1500 accredited companies with a positive response of over 60%, from a recent enquiry of over 50 of these companies who showed interest in becoming members.
We would look to achieve a conservative membership base of approximately 50% of the companies currently available, which would generate a monthly income of £18,750. Of this there would be a £5,000 per month re-investment of income to cover advertising costs leaving a gross net profit of £13,750 per month.
