The actual amount of money you will make will be directly relevant to how good you are at sales and how much time you devote… Like anything else in life!
ASSUMPTION: You sell out the 204 total spots available within a one year period and collecting two 6 month payments with no discounting…
(204 divided by 50 weeks is only 4 ads per week that need to be sold)
Gross income $80,928.
($39.mo. 3@top of each category $29.mo. remaining 9 spots – Plus $49.mo. for the 12 sponsor ads that appear on 19 pages)
Ad design and upload cost $25. X 204. + $25. X 102 for re-ups (estimated) = <$7,650> Monthly Lease $450. X 12 = <$5400.>
Gross Profit – divided by 50 weeks is $1357. weekly.
A good salesman can easily sell at least two directories by himself which could return up to $135,756 in annual Gross Profit. More Directories under your control, more money.
