3. What type of advertising will you have in addition to Facebook ads?

5. What are the demographics of the home/business owners that list? Are you targeting specific people or businesses?

Technically every person who owns or has access to a property that can be offered for shoots is a potential target customer for Scoufi.

6. What reporting would Scoufi provide for sales tracking?

You can view all registrations by your reps on the agency panel.

- On registration, every agency is provided with a panel where they can add agents.

- Agency talent works on credit basis.

- These agents will get property listed on Scoufi and collect the payment.

- The agent ensures that the payment is made to the agency.

- At the end of every fortnight an automated invoice is generated by Scoufi for the listings registered by the agency’s agents for that fortnight. Once the payment is made, the listings are converted to paid on Scoufi’s panel.

- Payment has to be made within 7 days of the date of invoice.

- Monitoring and filtering of fraud listings by agents is the responsibility of the agency.

7. Is there a portal that the agents would sign into?

Scoufi will be providing the portal for the agents to login once they have registered.

8. Can you please explain the sales process and outline the time to complete a sale? Also, what training would be required for the sales reps?

The agents have to meet local / small business owners, explain the benefits of listing on Scoufi and register them. Since there is nothing technical, an agent with even very basic training which includes information on Scoufi and its benefits should be good to get on the field.

9. Does the agent enter all the required information on the device on behalf of the customer? Typically the customer would need to enter in their credit card information and sign on their own.

The agents have to assist the customer to fill in details about the property like – name, property description, choose a suitable category for the property, and upload pictures / videos. Once the agent enters agency ID and agent ID during registration our system bypasses our payment gateway and shows the property as registered. The agency collects the full payment. As mentioned above Scoufi collects the payment from agency every fortnight.
