Independent Contractor

Business Development Lead

Buddy Web Design & Development is a growing and entrepreneurial website design and development company headquartered in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Buddy has built a portfolio of clients across the United States, and is currently seeking help to grow the business by identifying and helping to secure new client projects.

Buddy is seeking an independent contractor who can spearhead sales and lead-generation activities, including prospecting, outreach, qualifying leads, and external marketing efforts. This work can be done remotely and part time, according to a schedule of your choosing.

An ideal person for this opportunity will have an entrepreneurial mindset, outgoing personality, and high degree of professionalism and integrity, coupled with a comfort and willingness to reach out to prospective clients and build mutually beneficial relationships.

5+ years of business-to-business sales experience and a record of success is required, particularly in a sales role where you were required to generate your own leads, rather than working off a provided sales prospect list.

Please note that this role is structured as an independent contractor opportunity, with compensation structured as commission only. In the spirit of transparency, this means that while we aim to offer commission percentages at or above industry norms, depending on your sales ability and professional network, there may be a ramp-up period for earned commissions to grow, just based on the normal sales cycle, such as the time it takes for initial outreach to prospects, the time to convert projects, bill clients, and to be paid. Buddy’s intent is to compensate well, while being mutually cognizant of cash flows so we can grow the business together.
