SUBJECT OF THE AGREEMENT
provides services including Business development, marketing and commercial
prospection, towards identifying qualified prospects (The “Qualified
Prospect”). A Qualified Prospect is a potential customer who has available
financial resources to make a purchase, as well as the need or desire for the
product or service being sold, and the authority to buy.
Sparksense has a network of people available as Freelance Business Developer (“Freelancer”) for project-based commercial development. The Freelancer performs its Business development activities for you at different locations and remotely.
After receiving an order from you, Sparksense assigns a Freelancer best matching to your specific product or service solution. Upon initial on-boarding, the Freelancer in turn identifies potential customers (“Prospect”) within its network and your broader market. The Prospect is contacted by the Freelancer to assess your solution. The Freelancer agrees to use its best efforts to follow-up with each Prospect, validate commercial interest and provide you an up-to-date list of Qualified Prospects (“Service Data”).
Sparksense, however, cannot guarantee you that Prospects that have initially be contacted by the Freelancer will turn into Qualified Prospects or later on as Customer.
Freelancers are not employees or representatives of Sparksense. They are private individuals who use Sparksense to participate in commercial prospection activities. The Freelancer profile is based on information that it provides, reviewed with reasonable effort by Sparksense. The Freelancer is required to complete additional relevant Sales training as deemed appropriate. Sparksense is to be informed immediately if the Freelancer is not carrying out his work to the Client’s satisfaction.
