Does anybody here have any experience with Re-selling services? Whether its brokering or a program... Like i see that some guy is advertising like a company but he is really just the middleman that pays programmers and then takes his cut ahead of time, I've also seen SEO reseller programs...

Whats your experience with these type of methods ?

Were they successful for you ?

Are there any courses about it that you could recommend ?

  • It's brokering, but i think it's still good business because we don't need skill/time to sell any services.

    Another concept which is similar, is arbitrage, which means buying something at one price and selling it at a higher one. There are many ways of doing it, and many courses saying how to do it.

    I tried one method which was selling business services such as logo creation, video testimonials and SEO type services on CraigsList, while buying the service on outsource sites like Fiverr of oDesk. From my experience in this (and everything else in life!), these days, the buying side is 1% of the challenge and the selling side is 99%. It's very very easy to find good workers to do those kinds of jobs (or most other kinds of jobs) at good rates, but actually persuading anyone to buy a service is where the challenges really are. So when considering different methods, I recommend looking at how they are suggesting you sell the services, because that's the hard part. In my experience, getting someone to post really good-looking image ads on CraigsList, every day for a couple of months, got zero interest.

    It's not a difficult method to test . . . you will probably need a domain and hosting, but that is not expensive. Try a few methods and see what results you get . . . even if you don't make your fortune you will certainly learn a few things, and that's all that matters because if you keep learning from each method you test, at some point you'll know enough to make IM work well for you

    I resell all manner of things: design, hosting, content, you name it.

    Were they successful for you ?

    Very.

    Are there any courses about it that you could recommend ?

    Aside from plugging my own, I can't think of any I'd recommend.

    Of course the "brokerage" is a good business. Here I am giving some example, there are many freelancing sites now, most of the sites earn 10% of the total amount on the freelancer earnings some sites earn 20%. To do this business, you have the enough worker & work also. If you have both work & worker, you will be able to earn a handsome amount of money from this sector.

    Technically I'm a broker - I resell services that I have delegate to a my team or whitelabel service. To be honest, most marketing services take this approach. Which is fine because my strengths rely in building relationships with clients, closing deals, and managing my team. For me, it's a no-brainer.

      Call it brokerage or arbitrage its the only way that I have found to make any real money online.
      Its not all plain sailing though and like any other business you need to learn your trade.

      It is a no brainer. But does anyone carry insurance for the brokerage business, if so what kind?
      People are sue happy.

    Brokering and "arbitrage" are killer methods for newbies and veteran marketers to make money, alike. Obviously, many newbies start of spamming or on craigslist as the middle man for logo design or content creation. This works but takes a lot of effort.

    The real power in brokering is finding big ticket items and very targeted buyers. Many online marketers promote these "online" services to individuals offline who have no clue where to get these tasks done, and it works well

    We offer a variety of web services to our clients. We have paid staff to handle orders, but sometimes we do outsource stuff and sell for a profit. Yes, its a lucrative business if you can do it right.

    There are several things that need to be kept in mind here:

    1. Your own reputation and whether or not the contractor you hire can provide the same quality services you are known for.

    2. Do you have to over charge to accommodate you commissions? That's not desirable, so you need to find a provider who can do it for you for less than the prevailing market prices.

    3. You have to figure out how to deal with edit requests after submitting work.

    If you want you can PM me. Since I run such a business I might have something for you.

    I am offering online services to offline clients, and I would say it is the way to go if you want to make more money than your time will allow. Decide on a service you would like to offer and find someone on a freelancing site or the warriorforum who can do what you offer.

    One bit of advice: Whatever the service - test your freelancers first!! Do not use the freelancer for the first time for a client's work. Some freelancers will say they can do whatever you ask them just to get the job, but deliver poor quality work, and you dont want to promise a client a service and have somebody else mess it up

    All the best!

    Such good advice, finding a client needing a service is only half the business. Finding freelancers to do the work can be just as difficult.
