    Hey all,

    I have to make a presentation and sequentially "sell" the product to my teacher.

    The product has to be sold to a business. It can be a service as well I believe.

    I am having difficulty finding something I like that would let me:

    easily explain the benefits
    easy to sell - sells itself
    is something I would be able to believe in.


    One of the things I thought about was Paychex, but I don't know if I have enough benefits - I need A LOT - doing good on the benefits part would allow me to be picked for a national sales competition going on in Jersey and then later Atlanta.

    Any ideas are welcome. The benefits are due today :)

    Maybe some kind of service that does background checks on future employees? So many people fudge their resumes, have checkered pasts, criminal, etc that a service that was easy & quick might be a winner.

    To go a little further on it, you could name it EmployeeFax, kinda like carfax.

    Excellent idea! Thank you!

    Some questions:

    Would this be legal? I am essentially going into people's private info? what's kind of legal protection would I need

    They would need to have some sort of release form or clause with their application.

    Your welcome! Jesseo is correct, it would not be much different than what is used on a rental application. You can access credit, criminal, and evictions at this point, figure out how to verify college degrees online, and maybe past employers through tax records, and there is still military records and a few others. You could have a basic service for x amount, and then comprehensive service for more.
