        Marketing/Business Development Consultant - eWork Markets ID 00000

        We are a transportation, packaging, distribution company in Atlanta, GA. We are seeking an experienced
        logistics consultant that can help us locate suppliers, shippers, manufacturers and retailers that are need of
        our services and and warehouse capabilities.

        The current situation you describe in your Request For Proposal (RFP) is the need for an experienced
        Marketing Consultant who can interest a manufacturer in your product. Your interest, it appeas to us, is to
        perform a market analysis of the larger consumer market and see how your product could be positioned.

        Your Solutions Group (YSG) partners from time to time with other consultants whose specialty is different
        from or expands on theirs. For this task, YSG will be partnering with Your Corporation.

        We hope the following preliminary proposal will describe in as much detail as is possible at this point, on how
        to accomplish your goals.

        Your Corporation administrates engineering, product marketing, patent process, and environmental
        consulting services to several sectors of the economy including the chemical process and
        pharmaceutical industries. The corporation sub-contracts additional professional personnel licensed to
        offer such services, whenever necessary. The branch which deals with environmental solutions is Your
        Corporation – Environmental Consultants.

        Business solutions include Marketing Analysis / Plans and complete Business Plans.

        Marketing analysis for our client’s products profile the latest technology and products developed by
        competing manufacturing companies world-wide, as also existing patents, trademarks and trade names,
        the market share in certain product categories, production facilities, distribution channels, existing
        networks of suppliers and contractors, a description of work under development, earnings and losses
        statements and an evaluation of the competition.

        Your Corp. will engage in data mining for the client of all the major publicly traded companies
        manufacturing similar products to your software and will develop a detailed marketing analysis and plan
        for your product based on this knowledge. The best manufacturing prospect will be identified and the
        remainders will be ranked in order of importance to your product and areas of distribution.
        The Marketing Plan is yours to use or to sell to prospective investors of your product. Reviewers should feel
        that your product is a natural extension of their already well established product lines. They should also
        believe that your product closes a production loop or product line.


        At Your Corp., we believe there is a proven strategy for marketing products effectively and profitably. Please
        refer to the Scope of Work of this proposal if there are any doubts about our strategies.

2     Scope of Services



              We would necessarily require further information as to the scope of your request, and the
              specific product, but for now we can outline the basic concepts which will be more fully
              developed if we are awarded the project. We envision a two phase implementation of
              strategy to introduce your product to the market:




                                                           2
2.1   Phase I



      2.1.1.    Records Review and Reconnaissance

                Publicly traded companies are required to file with the Securities Exchange
                Commission (SEC) certain Annual Reports known to contain material
                information to the operations, staffing and financial status of the company.
                These reports summarize the latest technology and products developed by

                registered trademark item and will develop a detailed marketing plan for your
                product based on this knowledge. The best prospect will be identified and
                the remainders will be ranked in order of importance to your product. These
                reports will be forwarded to the CLIENT and constitute the results of the Data
                Mining and Reconnaissance task.

                YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare for the CLIENT a Marketing Plan which will
                be exclusively developed and tailored based on the marketing analysis of the

                your product conforms to established industry norms, available distribution
                facilities and other existing product lines of the selected major companies.

                          Pricing Structure
                          Accessories, Parts, and Size Categories
                          Sales and Profit Objectives

                          Internal Evaluation
                          Warehousing Locations and Product Shelf Life
                          Distribution Methods
                          Advertising and Promotion

                          Royalty Rate Structures and Cash Sale Valuation
                          Contract Options

                   * Some items may not be relevant to your particular product and could be
                   omitted


       3.1.1.      Privately held companies are also an alternative which should be considered.
                   Not much information is publicly available as to the inner workings of these
                   enterprises, however, a similar approach will be followed for such companies.

                   The approach, data mining and reconnassaince, evaluation and report
                   preparation are identical to above.

                   This signifies that a second Marketing Plan containing the same basic
                   information but tailored to the smaller privately held companies will also be
                   forwarded to the CLIENT under this task.

       2.1.3.      YSG / YOUR CORP will recommend specific contingencies to initial rejection,
                   develop some critical financial metrics, contact 100 companies world-wide
                   about your product and present promotional material.

       2.1.4.      YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare a brief MS Power Point presentation of
                   the salient points of the Final Report.

       2.1.5.      If specifically requested by CLIENT, follow-ups and continuing contacts via
                   promotional material and presentation letters on CLIENTS behalf, beyond
                   those included in Section 2.1.6, including a brief updated Market Research
                   Report, will be billed at the following rates: $500 / 200 campaign material
                   packets forwarded and $300 / 75 campaign material packets forwarded. This
                   task can also be broken down by hours of multi-media marketing and
                   advertising exposure. It is recommended that this option be exercised every
                   quarter to keep your business abreast of changes in the industry.

2.2.    Phase II

       2.2.1.      Under this task, YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare for the CLIENT a complete
                   Business Plan for your product once more information is known.




                                                  4
      2.2.2.           YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare for the CLIENT business recommendations
                       and strategies for obtaining funding for your business and will present the
                       developed Business Plan to at least ten (10) VC and/or AI investors
                       specializing in CLIENT’S business concepts.
