What is the Resource Centre and why?
The new Sales Leader Forum (SLF) membership site provides members with a ‘Resource Library’. This provides an opportunity for content providers like you to leverage your content to generate leads and/or sales revenue with no cost to you.
Our revenue model is membership based with 4 levels of membership. At the basic level we provide access to the 'Resource Library' only for a fee of AUD$60 per annum. The other 3 levels get access to the resource library in addition to other offerings.
So, your content, in our library, will make membership more attractive. That's our benefit.
What's in it for you?
Your value derives from sales leads and potentially revenue from sales we make of your content. That said, our primary objective for pricing items is not to generate sales revenue, but to encourage visitors to sign up as a member.
So in summary:
There is no cost to you.
The value to you is potentially:
Leads generated through exposure to your content via a click on your ‘call to action’ in your content
We provide you with contact details of anybody who downloads your content and agrees to us providing it.
70% of the sale price of any item sold.
We encourage you to provide us with downloadable only content that would be of value for sales leaders and/or salespeople and marketers.The types of content that we are particularly interested in are eBooks, eGuides, Tools and Templates - all relevant to B2B sales and marketing for leaders and their teams.
See detail on how to supply content on the next page
All content you provide for the ‘Resource Centre’ should provide value in it’s own right and have a very clear call to action which takes the interested party directly to you. We will not require it to pass through our hands and there is no fee for such a lead.
Pricing your content
Each item can be priced for non members and then we can provide a discount applicable for members. We suggest in most cases the items be provided free to members. We want to encourage non members to sign up so when they see most items are priced to them, yet free for members, it will be an incentive to sign up. However you can ask us to apply a less than 100% discount for members if you would prefer.
We are using a membership based eCommerce system to provide content
You can see some of the system via the links below (Note: these pages are not yet publicly available so please don't share them until we go live):
How to provide content

Provide an answer to these questions for each item:

Keyword tags that we will include in the website metadata for SEO
Promotional description for us to include in our website - a short paragraph or 2 that promotes the value of the item for the member
Recommended retail price (if you don’t provide a price we will determine it)
A discount that you agree we can apply for our members - our preference is 100% for any item that you currently give away because we want to encourage our members to download items so you get the exposure and possible sales lead.
