    Which idea are you referring to? The manufacturer of the pre-fab home or Amazon selling them? You haven't presented any other "cool" idea..lol!

    This is another product and niche that people have to know how to reach or develop the market for - same as you do for "cool" nail clippers on Amazon which you'd probably sell more of I fathom.

    What would be a better question is, does anyone have a "cool" idea how to go about finding buyer's for these and what type of funnel or website strategy would they use or recommend. IMHO

      Another pipe dream with:

      and I see lots of potential in it because you can create huge up to 15k plus by selling these portable homes using amazon affiliate program

      I see bigger potential selling yachts and jets.

      Every Warrior here sees POTENTIAL, many just want the potential of making a few bucks a day even, let alone all that BIG money being an affiliate of Amazon.

      So, thanks Professorrosado. The best idea for any Warrior seeking a profit is in what you say needs to be done...

      finding buyers or a cool strategy to use. Always the essential thing lacking in these big POTENTIAL ideas.

      So, if I were interested in finding a buyer for a jet or a yacht, or a diy home, I'd have a tendency to go to the places where such people play, shop and intertwine.

      Hard to sell an Ocean going yacht to some guy living on a Lake Mead boathouse (even one he built from a kit).

      Market first. Buyers first. Then add the P O T E N T I A L.

        The point of the people not fawning over your idea:
        Finding expensive items to promote is not that hard.


        Promoting them well is.


        Also, building funnels particularly related to this niche and driving traffic to it using different marketing strategies such as... That's not a strategy. A strategy is a plan of action. Saying "I plan" in front of a sentence does not make the sentence a plan.

    Ages and ages ago, I had a real estate appraising company. My appraisers wanted more money, so I told them, I'd give them 10% of any work given my company by someone they referred for as long as that someone gave me work.

    I told them, my best client is giving me $18k to $19k a month, my smallest is giving me $3,000 to $4000 a month.

    The potential, if they were like me? $300 to $1,800/month per referral.

    Guess how many of my complaining "I don't have enough money" got me a client?

    Yup, you guessed it, none.

    They knew how to appraise, they did not know how to convince someone to hire them or my company. The leap is not big; they came in contact often with people that could hire my company. But they could not make that leap.


    So, yes, it's possible to make 15k a pop, if you have the background/skills of someone who makes 15k a pop and are willing to put in the work.

    One of the biggest hurdles is putting in the work. Not because you are lazy but because you do not believe you are the kind of person that makes 15k a pop. If you do not believe in yourself, you'll start, maybe, but will give up fast enough... maybe after you work really hard for a few weeks, you're almost there, too.

    The core foundation for potential is your unbridled passion for a niche. Passion people see immense potential. I think seeing potential because of $15K in profits is a mistake because it is number chasing, buddy. Imagine Jeff Bezos 30 years ago. Did he see potential in Amazon because he could make money with the idea or did he see potential because the concept of Amazon made him feel alive? Big difference between the two.

    What he felt was gas!

    Inflating oneself for the money without having that "stuff" it takes to realize it usually results in explosive flatulence upon decent.

    This is about skill not commission. A salesman never looks at the commission, he only hones his skills to bring home the bacon.

    Everything else is just..Oh well..you smell it!

    The idea sounds create. The problem is that many great ideas have come up on Amazon in the past few years. Unfortunately, most of them just fizzle out. I hope this will be an exception.

    Are you taking into account the large number of options online and offline offering prefabricated homes .

    Do you have a.particular live for or interest in prefabricated homes . Or did you just see the up to 15,000 in commission. And what's to stop customers from seeing the add you put up for a prrfab home . And easily just bypassing you and going to the manufacturer

    If you really want to sell these go ahead . If you thing you can sell 20,000. 50,000, or 100,000+ itemthat is far outside impulse purchase and may requirefinancing credit check

    I have been following this "trend" for a number of years now. its a COOL Niche with a pretty decent upside. in terms of Affiliate im not sure $15k per sale is possible more like $1200 but STILL.

    I personally am working towards building a facility where me and 3 of my closest carpenter friends will be building these ( ok my 3 friends will be doing the building LOL ) - there is simply more money in it this way. I have already gone thru the process with architects and local and state level code stuff and have 4 models planned out.

    Once my building is done and a couple more tools are purchased we/they should be able to punch out about 2 a week 50 weeks a year in the comfort of a heated and cooled 15" high 20,000 sq ft workshop.

    As I start my marketing efforts, I may include the affiliate offers, as well as offering plans for sale as well.

    That line at the bottom of each and every post I have ever left on this Forum " Success is an ACT not an idea " is what separates success from the next cool idea, and the next and the next and the next.

    THIS ONE is cool - it has officially been Savidge4 Certified COOL - now what?

      Campgrounds, or GOLF courses. How about a community, where you can showcase your models, even rent them out by the week, attract small home enthusiasts, have workshops, offer training (your guys build and TEACH or show while doing their jobs)..offer on site residences for builders...become THE

      PLACE to learn, discover, build, and even stay as this TREND continues to explode. Offer a one week stay and build, like an old fashioned Amish Barn Raising, everyone on the camp, helps build quickly.

      So many possibilities, and campgrounds often have the basics, electrical and water, and even sewer systems. Golf courses, have land. 100 acres and you have the next big thing.

      Just a thought.

      GordonJ

      PS. Hands on gives the owner a special relationship to it, even if a kit or mostly precut, you have a huge market for selling a week workshop, (getting labor who PAYS YOU) to come and help build one of the two a week. They buy it and help build it.

        The buildings I/we will be creating are "true" tiny homes 10x15 8x20 and on wheels. I am currently looking for a metal guy that we can get into Shipping containers to produce "homes" and modular stack models.

        My marketing is starting very local, and will expand to regional shortly after, these will be delivered complete. The models we currently are going to be working on will be self sustaining, ( Solar energy, water containment, compost toilets etc ) as well as units that are set for more standard connections like water sewer and electric.

        ADDING something like the items that Amazon offers obviously fills a gap that my product alone has.. larger more traditional in appearance "tiny homes". I understand the Shipping container option will not be for everyone.

        So why I suggest this is like a killer niche to get into.. the search volume is off the charts. From my research the sell ratio is decent ( I will know for sure by the first of the year ) and there are MANY options, upgrades, and refinements available in this space.

        I have watched "Solar" for years, and that has proven to be a hard nut to crack, there is like a fine line between crappy and decent, and the pricing is I am not going to say excessive - but segments the market greatly. As an example, I have a couple of Tesla Powerwalls - freakin the best technology on the market hands down, but the price point limits potential targeting.. The delineation between those that would buy and those that wouldn't is real super grey, because its not hinged on the expense as it is the desire for clean energy. BUT having the desire, doesn't equate to having the capital to invest.

        Tiny homes is a bit different... If you are looking... there appears to be about a 30% chance that you might buy, and THAT alone is huge. And the market segmenting between self sustaining, mobile, and small footprint kits is very clear and definable, AKA targetable.

          Here's a link to a guy who builds tree houses... real and very expensive houses in trees (not affiliate with him in anyway, shape or form, but I watched a few episodes of his show... Might give you ideas.): https://www.nelsontreehouse.com/show


          Maybe because of you, when 30-year old Johnny wants to move back home, he can move in a tree on mom and dad's property, thereby saving himself and them a lot of acrimony. All thanks to the Savidge4 Tiny Tree House Family Reconciliation and Peace Project!

    Have you watched 'cash pad' on HGTV?

    Interesting concept...

    Experienced builder/designer couple takes on renovating spaces for AirBnB rentals...they do a fast (not cheap) full reno without buying the property.

    They take a garage, shed, warehouse, etc - and sign a 4 year contract with the owner of the property.

    The 'builders' spend their own money ($30k-$70k or so) to totally renovate the potential rental. The original owners still own the property. For four years the property owner gets a 'guaranteed income' of about $700-800 per month. All other income goes to the couple who did/paid for the renovations.

    The rental of these properties returns the initial renovation budget within 12-18 months. At that point anything over the monthly payment to the owner goes to the renovators. From the numbers they run on the show it seems the 'renovators' triple their investment during the four years.

    The couple who renovates does it all - professional photos and listing the property on AirBnB, setting up maintenance and housekeeping, etc.

    After the 4 yr contract the couple will continue to manage/market the property on a 50/50 split or the owner can take it over...at least I think that is how it goes after the initial contract.

    I think the trend to small homes, movable homes, etc is just getting started.

      Smaller families ,more people staying single longer or permanently . But there are many areas that are unfriendly to tiny or small homes

      Unfortunaly many of those cities have high property values and high rents and increasingly high homeless populations and ever increasing property crimes

    I love the idea of 'tiny homes' but ...to live in something that small you really need to be a very neat person. I know me well - I'm not.


    I've seen that tree house show and LOVE some of those 'houses'...have looked at potentially renting something like that for a vacation.



    A friend's daughter just got divorced and moved 'back home' with her 2 little girls. Her Dad is building out a prefab 18x40 shed/cabin for her in back of their own house. Probably around 700 sq feet once it's done - I'm curious to see how it turns out.

    The trend towards "tiny" and mobile homes is accelerating, as is "off grid" housing. The technology is mature and increasingly affordable to sustain many of the comforts and conveniences of traditional living in rustic environments which have minimal or no conventional utilities. This is already a huge and growing market, with most (if not all) necessities are available through Amazon.

    Most of my sales in this niche are in solar panels and associated energy components through Amazon as well as DIY solutions and other household equipment and supplies. And in my experience, many people in the "off grid" niche even prefer the convenience of ordering their ordinary monthly staples online (through my Amazon affiliate link). Making 15k plus in monthly commissions is rare with only high dollar orders.

      Have to agree completely this "Niche" has I think reach a critical mass. By itself Solar I dont think is there yet.. should be.. but just not there.

      I am obvioulsy going all in with this project thinking ( researched the day lights out of it ) the complete combination of off grid solutions is going to be a major asset.

      My long term thinking is to expand from providing "homes" to becoming a Authority site of sorts and affiliate sell the bits pieces and parts. and you have mentioned, there is without question the product, and the demand.

      I am even going a step further in my builds and creating smart solutions and including Google home functionality for things like lights and cameras etc This is something I personally use.. and I honestly don't know how people live without it. and given the space of a "Tiny" home you really only need one little puck and a tablet on the wall to run the whole house which is just crazy.

        Solar IS here, but of course nowhere even close to critical mass. Particularly in sunny southwestern US, I see hundreds of acres sprouting up everywhere with "solar farms". Besides the "tiny home" movement, many conventional homes (including nearly all new construction at least in southern California) have installed solar as a significant source of energy.

        I wouldn't suggest trying to sell "homes", but rather sell DIY products to off grid enthusiasts and homeowners who are already in the market. In my experienced opinion, there is much more money to be made in being an after-market supplier source. The RV industry and "prepper" subculture are also huge markets for all things solar.

        Keep in mind that "off grid solutions" goes way beyond just the solar panel aspect. There's inverters, energy storage, 12/24 volt appliances, electronic gauges/gadgets, WIFI antennas/boosters, backup generators, water storage, heating, cooling, tools, food preparation/storage, gardening, and all the associated home supplies for sustaining off-grid independence.

        And the great thing about all this is that virtually everything is available for you as an Amazon affiliate to provide your customers! It shouldn't be hard to see that outfitting and reorders from just a few customers a month could net a nice 5-figure per month income. It is already being done.
