Building an offline business and creating a team

by 47 comments
Hey WF, I have just recently jumped into the world of offline marketing and I am ready to go full force into it. I have overloaded on information on this forum on what to offer businesses, and at first I was just looking to target small businesses with no websites and offer them web-design, but then I thought, well the real money is going to lie in marketing for these businesses so that is where I am at now.

I want to create a marketing package that I can sell to these businesses and I am not sure how to build this package. I am also basically looking to outsource most of the work but I need to make sure I still am profitting, but here is a list of what I want to offer:
  • Web design for businesses with no website.
  • Monthly Maintenance of their website
  • Facebook Fan Page
  • SMS marketing
  • Video Marketing
  • Google Place ongoing service
And that is all I have thought of so far, but my biggest problem is that I do not know how to offer these packages when I am not fully educated on each of these, and as I said I am looking to outsource most of the work, and I am looking to build a long term team of people, so where should I go to start building this team? If possible, I would like to work with people here on WF more than anything, but first I need to figure out how exactly to approach my leads with this.

Any and all tips and advice is welcome and greatly appreciated, thank you.

    I am in the process of doing the exact same thing. Maybe we should talk? I have two other angles that I am using that you did not mention as well.

    I've been in the merchant services industry for 7 years I just started offering my current clients most of these additional services as a way to generate additional revenues and help decrease churn(as merchant account are starting to become commoditized) as well as a way to get my foot in the door with new merchants. However I've been thinking about starting a JV with some of the other offliners here where as they can add in merchant services to their offering to help them close more deals and earn additional monthly residuals(anywhere from $15-$100/mo depending on the monthly credit card volume of the client)from the merchant services end without doing any of the work. This can work with both your new clients as well as your existing clients. If anyone is interested please let me know. This is real easy money for you.

    You can find most of the info you're looking for here on the forum or with some quick searches in google.

    There's also lots of good PLR guides and videos available on the forum that'll help educate you about these things and also give you something to use to promote your services to clients.

    If you're still looking for some website or mobile site design help, let me know and if we can do something together I've got plenty of PLR material I've written myself about many web related topics.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    I'm so glad I found this thread! I have analysis paralysis...lol. I have found so much information on offline marketing/web design that I don't know where to begin. I know what my strong points are and I know what they are not. I do NOT know how to do the tech stuff that has to be done to create the sites, fanpages, etc. Having one person or a handful of people to trust and use for those jobs would be awesome. I know about vworker, etc... but there are so many to choose from that it would be less daunting task to have one person to send email to, tell them what I need, know what it will cost me, and have it done asap. So getting the "team" is exactly where I am right now. I'll be watching for new ideas and if anyone finds great people to outsource the work to, it would be greatly appreciated!
