After I my sales and marketing and e-comm departmental resources and budgets are approved, I will finalize all plans. I can tell you right now that 90% of the sales plan will consist of individual sales rep sales targets (quotas) and their respective Territory Action Plans (see attached example). You know the old saying ‘he who has no written plan, has no plan.” Marketing personnel will have action plans and standards of performance also. Our sales and marketing staff will know exactly what is expected of them, they will not make it up as they go, we will proactively manage their activity, and we will mange with ‘leading indicators (i.e. daily ;’ not trailing ones (i.e. missed sales forecast) I envision my role as helping to grow $30 million . 1) CFR personal sales, marketing, management plan (a) Sales (i) Assist JJA on existing account penetration (1) BOA, 1st Va, BBT I see my role and charter is to help build The development and implementation of a 2014 HostVentures sales plan will involve the build-out of the HostVentures sales department and relevant infrastructure relating to departmental goals, resources, responsibilities, strategies, tactics. The success of sales activities especially involves separating and clearly defining the fundamental role of marketing within the company, such as lead generation, promotion, advertising, service positioning, pricing, and other basic marketing responsibilities. Number of factors including company ownership, new personal, new service, make the situation fluid It is anticipated that this will the majority of Q1 and a portion of Q2. Reason is that analyzing and making determinations what resources are available, what are the real needs relative to targeted sales goal, account growth, new service lines, sales channel development, and …. Following is a basic scenario of the sales plan and process. B. 2014 Sales Goals 1. Direct Sales a) Sales Goals (1) As has been stated to me, the overall company 2014 annual sales goal at this time is $2 million in new sales. This goal will be adjusted based on availability of additional sales and marketing resources (dollars/staff/channel development). Once the staffing and budget is approved, formal sales targets for both 2014 and 2009 will be finalized and presented within one week after the Sales Summit. (2) DDA. Targeted increases in DDA from Direct Sales will also be finalized and presented within one week after the Sales Summit. b) Pipeline Targets – 30 days (1) Current: Current pipeline is roughly $2,000,000 in identified pipeline, and probably another $1M-$3M in acknowledged but undocumented pipeline. (2) Target: Build total Direct Sales pipeline to $50,000,000 by the end of Q2. (3) Every quarter each DSR is targeted to work at least four highly qualified $250K deals and at least one highly qualified $1M+ dollar deal; this equates to $8 million of high-probability pipeline. (4) It is anticipated that each DSR will have at least three $250k Large Account prospects in each quarterly sales forecast. Created by Carl Ramsey Page 5 of 24

The success of the company goal is a group achievement; the failure is a group responsibility. • Patience. We can’t do in 6 months what hasn’t done in 6 years. While it is true that we must make immediate impact (i.e. TARGET ACCOUTNS, etc.) , but You don’t build a for the future in 6 months or even a year. It’s a continual ‘work in progress’ and want the peace of mind atmosphere to do it in. Created by Carl Ramsey Page 11 of 24
  12. 12. 2014 Prototype Sales Plan DRAFT Sales Philosophy. I think the first thing we must do is decide where to set the prospect qualification bar the extent to which a prospect is qualified that will permit the expenditure of company resources. Sales reps (including you, me, and any other HostVentures exec) must be know the difference between a prospect and a suspect. We must know our cost of customer conquest and how much of that cost is to be absorbed by what I like to refer to as 'free consulting' by sales reps. It's OK to for Sales Reps to spend resources prospecting and crating market awareness as long as EBITDA will support that formula. It's going to take some real commitment from the top to 'reinvent' the sales process in order to obtain standard recurring revenue quotas, which I definitely believe can be accomplished. 1.

Staffing (1) Comp Plan (see attached) My take . I realize we need to discuss so please . Please finalize ASAP. (2) (3) CFR Office Jamie Hess old office is not adequate; too loud, thin walls, not enough privacy, not enough space for expanding activities ((visitors, 1-on-1’s w/reps, sales library, etc. The best scenario is probably for me to exchange offices with Norm Welch or take Jarvis old office. I presume JJA is taking CEO office where Schuster is currently sitting. (4) (5) Created by Carl Ramsey Job Description I will prepare and submit fro review and discussion at Sales Summit.

Compensation (1) Carl Ramsey, VP Sales, Marketing, eCommerce See attached Comp Schedule. (2) Direct Sales Reps I suggest we discuss the possibility of two comp plan types. DSRs could make a selection from two comp plan types: (a) Base/Commission This plan pays a base salary and commission plan. Targeted comp will be based on industry standard mix which will be based on avg. contract value, avg. sales cycle, and complexity of sale. The larger the sales value, and longer the sales cycle, the higher the base. For example if we target $100k total annual comp at plan (including base, commission, bonuses, etc.) , and the avg. sales cycle is 3 months, the base would be a larger portion of the total comp than if the sales cycle were short and avg. is small. Let’s discuss. (b) Commission only This plan pays commission only (with bonuses). If we adopt a commission only plan, commission rate should obviously be higher than commission rate for base/comm. plan. Lets discuss.

TSRs will be doing non-stop talking, we probably could put several TSR desks in the DSR area and enclose with sound proof wall-separators. DSRs should be in the filed most of the time anyway, so TSRs shouldn't bother them much being in there. We need to look at outsourcing TSR efforts. 7. Budget See attached 8.

  24. 24. 2014 Prototype Sales Plan DRAFT g) more…. The trick is to match your message to your market using the right medium. It would do you no good to advertise your retirement community using a fast-paced, loud radio spot on a hip-hop radio station. This is a complete mismatch of the market, message, and medium. Success will come when there is a good match of these three elements. 2) Web strategy Online marketing will be critical to RockClimbOnline.com. It will be the best way to spread the news about our website and let rock climbers around the U.S. know about this new content/commerce site. Key online initiatives to generate traffic are: 1. We will develop partnerships with as many online climbing equipment retailers as possible, linking to them in exchange for links to us. 2. We will seek out all rock climbing organizations and gyms that have online sites, and find unique co-marketing and co-branding opportunities to allow them to expose our content to their members. 3. We will develop a partnership with [name omitted] brick and mortar outdoor supplier in order to have a presence in the offline world. D. Public Relations Created by Carl Ramsey Page 24 of 24
