Cost Per Lead

You design the ads  or we do it, and you pay only when you get a business lead:

An example, say you selling a service or product that costs R1000 each, an advertising fee will be calculated this way: Advertising Fee = 10% of your R1000 costing product/service price you sell x 1 Lead = R150 x 1 = R100. So after a month long advertising campaign, if you end up getting 10 sales, an assumption, you made R10 000 sales having paid out about R1000 (excl. once off setup fee) in advertising fees.

Purchase Order and RFQ Scam Alert from CSD

CSD PO Fraud Alert

Don’t be duped or hood-winked by skelems!

Over the past four years a number of companies have lost tens of thousands of Rands due to alleged fraudulent request for quotations (RFQS) and orders, supposedly from government departments.

The fraudsters would send a fictitious RFQ from what would seem to be a governmental email address, use a fake RFQ form with a logo and contact details of the contact person. These requests are usually “urgent” and the whole process is concluded within a short period of time. During the process the “SCM officials” will be in contact with the unsuspecting service provider until the goods are delivered either outside the building or at an agreed address.

Companies are therefore advised to verify all the RFQs and orders by calling the respective departments using the Departmental contact details listed on their respective websites to verify authenticity prior to responding to any RFQs or orders to avoid falling prey to these fraudsters.

SPAM: You not receiving legit email? Gmail marks messages as SPAM by mistake.

Email SPAM test before sending email to see how it goes, as Gmail had previously marked a legit message as SPAM by mistake.
Email SPAM test before sending email to see how it fairs, as Gmail had previously marked a legit message as SPAM by mistake, an email I had sent to my other Gmail subscriber of my newsletter, my testing Gmail email address. But even this test won’t guarantee Gmail won’t put email in SPAM folder by mistake though my email scored 10/10 using mail-tester.com email SPAM tester service.

Hi TolaTender Email Newsletter Readers,

I am forced to publish an important email I sent yesterday here on your TolaTender News website, yesterday I sent an important email on new finance options available for your business (am publishing it here too), Gmail email service sometimes does put legit emails from your senders into their spam folder by mistake, using their intelligent systems they detect spam email by looking how many times certain words and phrases are used, e.g. Cash and Free, so when I had “Cash Flow Solution” and “free” used in my email I suspect it is the reason their put that into their “spam” folder by mistake. Well Gmail users can end up not seeing important emails from their legit email senders, and if you a business you may end up losing an important client, sadly 🙁

Well Gmail service is free, so expect some problems like this, it is up to you to check and remove legitimate emails from your spam folder to your main inbox, else Gmail may forever put your important sender emails to your spam folder by mistake, and you end up not seeing key emails from your clients.

  1. Regularly check your spam folder ,
  2. Unmark our email we sent you or remove or transfer legit emails, emails you expecting, to your main inbox that have been put in that folder by Gmail by mistake.
  3. Gmail users, please do not mark legit emails as spam if they come from sources you subscribed to such as newsletters, rather unsubscribe using the link at the bottom of the email to unsubscribe.

So when you see Gmail warning you like this below, don’t just think they correct all the time check whether you know the email sender or not, if you know them do step (2) above, Gmail also makes a mistake, sadly 🙁

Gmail marks legit email as SPAM by mistake.

Business Technology: Saving costs is another way to make a profit

“Saving costs is another way to make a profit!”

Saving costs is another way to make profit and is an old adage, often overlooked, in our new section here at TolaTender.co.za News I will give my personal experience of about 20 years “playing” with business technology, but I will explain business technology  in my style which is “crystal clear” yet simple, the cost and benefit analysis of a business technology solutions that anyone can implement in their office, so that you are able to see clearly, in money terms, the cost savings per year and and implement those solutions if you wish to replicate my successes and reap the benefits in money terms of increase in your business profit, once again I remind you, this is a very critical understanding, “Saving costs is another way to make a profit!”.

Business Technology Cost Savings

Let me make an example, I used to wake up and post content manually to our various social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, from our database-driven company website or let us call it a blog as some of you may have blogs, blogs too are database-driven, a database basically is computer storage of information, in this case my business information, this exercise would take 2-3 hours each day from say 4am till 6 or 7am, planning and doing it, remember one must also add tracking code to content to collect performance statistics so I can know which posts had the most clicks etc, now an employee’s normal working day is 8 hours, so if you subtract the 3 hours than I would have already used a third of my working day doing this repetitive admin, and if an employee earns say R30 per hour that is R30 x 3 hours x 30 days x 12 months per year and the cost of that activity was R32 400 per year, if you could save R32 400 per year what can you use it for? An end of the year vacation, new office equipment or re-invest it and your time into another profit making business activity likes sales! Well that’s what I did, I developed a simple computer software program to do this repetitive admin task of posting to our social media from our blog or database-driven website.

We will clear the myths and superstitions around business technology, and bring your business  from the dark ages back to the 21 century!

Our new business technology section at TolaTender.co.za News will give such practical examples and clear cost savings in money terms not some “shady” business technology solution whose impact in money terms, the seller can’t tell you, yet sells it to you as a necessity and beneficial!

Invoice Discounting: Is waiting for your business customer payments killing your business?

You have done the work for your customer, a big business, the client is satisfied, and you have issued your invoice, however, the problem is that your business customer will only  pay you in 7 to 60 days! Mean time, there are immediate expenses that need to be paid monthly, and these creditors don’t care that you will be paid in 7 to 60 days days they want their money pronto! They hound you and call your telephone almost daily demanding their money like yesterday! You can’t even sleep at night because of the worrying sigh…Man frustratedCLICK HERE!  Get This Business Finance Quote!

We all been there, it is called Cash Flow Challenge, let us call it CFC. Your accounting books tell you have the money, however the problem is that that money is not coming to you at the time you need it, which is now! But your money will be paid to you by your customer or debtor in the near future, and that future just happens to be in 7 to 60 days to come, which of course for a cash strapped entrepreneur is too far! And did I mention? You find that your local bank can’t help you especially since they became part of that new tighter international standard or law for banks, which basically means, banks can’t just loan people with low credit scores, and you happen to have a low credit score too!

In our last article I introduced tender financing or purchase order financing but that is for “tenderpreneurs” or entrepreneurs who have government purchase orders but no money to pay suppliers immediately and do the tender.

What is invoice discounting?

Ok, here at TolaTender.co.za, we write simply because we talking to entrepreneurs not some Masters of Business or Guru, and simple is better, basically, you sell your specific invoice for a debtor to another business at a discount, and the other business waits the 7 to 60 days you would have waited to get paid WHILE YOU DO NOT WAIT 60 DAYS, and you get up to 90% of the invoice value paid to you today! The rest, which is 10% minus the services fees, you get that later when your customer pays the business you sold that specific invoice to!

Benefits:

  • Your get this business finance even with a Low Credit Score!
  • Same day payment into your account!
  • The invoice purchaser does not take over your whole debtors book – only specific, large debtors;
  • The product is very flexible – you decide how much cash you need and which customers  you want to discount;
  • Your invoice will be discounted up to 90% of its value;
  • There are no monthly or fixed costs – you only pay for what you need;
  • There are no fixed terms – you can discount at any time;
  • Minimum paperwork required, and
  • Above all: YOUR CASH FLOW PROBLEMS ARE RESOLVED INSTANTLY.

    Requirements:

    • Your customer must be a reputable company with a good business record and credit standing;
    • Your customer must agree to pay the invoice amount into our bank account;
    • Your customer must sign an undertaking confirming the invoice amount.

Costs:

The discount rate is 0.15% per day until your customer pays the business that bought that specific invoice, but the actual rate depends on the credit risk assessment so you will be assessed. You will only be charged for the exact number of days for which the invoice is outstanding. There is no minimum period. They may be a nominal service fee of say R300 per discounting transaction but this depends on many factors.

BEE Certificate: Do 100% black-owned businesses need BEE certificates? YES!

A BEE Certificate is for getting your business work or tenders from procurement departments!

WHO IS BLACK PERSON IN SOUTH AFRICA?

A Black person, is as all people who may have been disadvantaged under the apartheid government, and includes Black, Coloured, Indian or Chinese demographics. However the individual must have been a citizen before 1994.

Example : A Chinese immigrant who has only received citizenship in 2005 would not be considered ‘Black’ as defined by the act.

DO 100% BLACK-OWNED BUSINESSES NEED A BEE CERTIFICATE?

YES! In South Africa more business opportunities are available to you if you have a BEE Certificate. If you are a supplier to the manufacturing, or retail industry, you might find that your buyer requests that you have certification. You have to be certified if you want to tender.

In almost every way, having a BEE Certificate in todays business economy is useful and an advantage to your company. A BEE Certificate could be requested by one of your suppliers or customers without warning and being able to answer that you are compliant gives a good impression of your company. As it only takes a few days to organise why not register yourself today?

IS IT HARD TO GET A BEE CERTIFICATE?

The greater the turnover the harder and more expensive it becomes and the harder it is to do? For most companies (except architect and travel industries) whose turnover is less then 10 million, they only require a BEE Exemption certificate. This can be easily done in a few days for prices starting at R490.

For companies who have larger turnover, an office visit is required, where a government approved agent will test you concerning a variety of areas. If you have to do this the cost of a BEE Certificate rises very quickly.

WHAT IS SANAS AND SANAS CERTIFICATION

SANAS is the government agency, who accredits companies to do BBBEE certification. There are only a few companies is South Africa that can issue SANAS approved certificates.

If you are not exempt from proper certification, then you will need a SANAS approved company to visit you and score you in accordance with the required prerequisites. They will then issue you with a SANAS approved certificate.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE LEVEL 1,2,3,4?

The smaller the number the better the level. In the past we had level 3 and level 4. Level 3 is better the level 4. Level 4 is intended by white owned companies, or companies where more then 50% of their shareholding is white. The mark for level 4 is 100%, and level 3 is 110%

Level 3 was the best option if you are majority Black Owned (see definition of Black above). In a nutshell if you have a level 3 certification, your quote might be 10% more costly then your Level 4 competition and you could still win the tender.

A new series of codes were released in October 2013, listing the new codes of Level 1 and 2 for companies who don’t appear in specific sectors. This means that a Black Owned company could get a Level 1, which equates to 135% Bee Rating as an EME.

Generally, if you are 100% Black owned, you will receive a level 1 certificate. In unique cases, certain departments in South Africa might not yet recognise this level (they are outdated departments as this law is now over two years old) and you might be disqualified. In these cases you are welcome to request a level 3 instead.

AND WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM WHITE AND CALL MYSELF BLACK?

Manipulating the system is a serious legal offence. Copies of ID’s are required and they are used as basic testing in this regard.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO A BEE CERTIFICATE

  • Company Registration Docs
  • ID documents of each director (Certified)
  • Application form of the BEE issuer company. (Completed)
  • Affidavit from the BEE issuer company needs to be signed.(Completed)
