Here is a great business model that you can use to make a lot of money. The great thing is, that this can produce a consistent income stream for you.
There are millions of small and medium sized businesses (in the “offline world”) that need their own websites, but don’t have one. A website that looks decent, has the proper “hooks” to convert visitors into customers, and gets a decent amount of traffic is worth a lot to these businesses.
There is just one problem!They don’t know how to build websites that look decent, or get enough traffic. And neither do they have the time to do it themselves.
That’s where you come in!
You are an Internet Marketer. You know how to build a website (or get one built). You know how to drive traffic to it. You know how to make it convert visitors into customers. You know how to build a list of prospects and send them marketing emails to result in even more sales.
In short, YOU know how to drive more sales for these businesses using the power of the Internet. The businesses, however, don’t. This is an incredible opportunity for you to make a huge amount of money.
For example, consider this scenario:
You approach a lawyer in your local area and agree to build him a website that can capture leads (i.e. get people subscribed to his opt-in forms) for $299 upfront, and $29.99 in monthly charges, for hosting and maintenance.
Other types of clients you can approach are accountants, doctors, restaurants, beauticians and stylists, fashion designers, contractors, etc. The list would be too huge to mention here. Just take a walk in your local area and see how many types of businesses there are.
Suppose you get 2 such clients every week (not hard to do at all, if you keep at it). Here’s a chart illustrating how much you will end up making at the end of 12 months.
|Month||Upfront fees ($)||Monthly fees ($)|
So at the end of the year, you will have made more than $47,000, PLUS established a recurring income stream of almost $19,000 per year.Which means that the next year, you can keep building on this income, and it will start adding up pretty soon.
Not bad at all!
And believe me, after a while, you will start getting clients through referrals and word of mouth. So you might actually be getting more than two clients per week that I mentioned above.
And after you have done the initial website for them, and they have stayed with you for a couple of months, you can upsell them on various other services, such as:
- Google Places/Local listings
- Mobile marketing
- Email marketing
- Social media marketing (Twitter, Facebook, and so on)
- Creating videos for them that they can put on Youtube, etc.
- And so on
Each of these will add to your bottomline, and build a recurring income. Recurring income is great because after a while, it helps you bring on staff to help you with some of the work. Bringing on staff is great because:
- It lets you help more clients’ businesses, and provide even more services to them
- It helps you get work done faster, better and more efficiently
- It frees up a lot of your time to spend with friends and family
- It creates employment opportunities for others!
But it all starts from a simple website that you create for them. From there, you can move on to other add-on services listed above.
As you can see, the possibilities are HUGE!
But it’s up to you to make it work. Here is a list of resources that are a MUST-have if you want to make this work. You may be able to make things work without these, but it would make things extremely difficult.

Resource 4: I understand you may not be able to do everything yourself in the beginning. That is why it’s a good idea to get help from someone who knows what they are doing. I have a WordPress site creation service that may be of use to you. If you have some other type of work that you need done, click the button on the right side of that page to get in touch with me and discuss the details. I can get it done for you at very affordable rates, so you have a lot of margin left over for your own profits. And your clients will all be yours to keep.
Hopefully, this gives you enough to get started. In future posts, I will cover the individual steps required to make this work well, if you need that sort of help. But in the meantime, this should be enough to get you started.
Now go and make things happen!
