In the realm of the absurd if not actually lucrative commerce...I share here in this blog ...actual requests made in our 3 week-old history of the luxury pet transport services of my latest co-venture, Pet Jets (www.petjets.com)
I'm a diehard entrepreneur and have started or co-founded niche businesses in literally scores of fields but transporting pets by private jets takes the cake. However, with the statistics now starting to be measurable one cannot argue with this:
20 qualified leads = in 1 booking
1 booking = $50k gross
Net per booking = $2500-$5000
Estimated 1st year's gross = $12,500,000 (1 booking x 5 days per work week)
Estimated 1st year's net = $625,000 - $1,250,000
We have assembled a small but very effective trio of operators of this interesting venture, complete with outsourced jet aviation providers, of course. The visionary behind this interesting business is a 35 year aviation industry expert with all of the connections to safely transport the pampered pets of the "one percenters." The next vital component of the trio is the seasoned lead generation and web expert who assembles and implements the various strategies of reaching potential clients for our unique service. Finally, there's the "deal guy," yours truly...who recognizes opportunity and puts things together very quickly and hopefully very profitably.
Please have a look at the some of the requests that our "back office" is preparing quotes for and our team is busy closing...
