I've been a lurker for a while. I dabble at the moment selling stuff.
I use secret methods, like article marketing (look it up, hardly anyone
does this...) selling the odd CB product.
I sat down with my wife at the weekend and we mapped out all of
our living costs, including pesky debt repayments. The whole booty.
Then we broke that figure down into a per day amount, as it is less
scary looking at it this way. I highly recommend doing this!
So what did our living costs come to PER DAY?
That figure was £51. Or in the Internet world, $100 a day.
So that is my target. That is my goal.
Now the part I would love to get some feedback on...
See, I figure that while I have this 'blank canvas' in front of me,
ready for my big plan-of-action to be laid down and followed, now
is the time to decide what kind of factors I want in my plan, in
order to earn the amount we have chosen.
One major factor I want is AUTOMATION. I would prefer my
$100 a day money-spewing system to require less than ONE
hour a day to maintain, once up and running. This is a guideline.
Naturally, to get it to that point may take many months.
Another important factor is longevity. Remember, this is to provide
for my wife and I for a very long time indeed. Heck, life hopefully.
So I want to ensure I don't put all my eggs into one basket.
And I don't want to put ANY eggs into a system which is
fickle, or of high risk.
Okay, before I ramble any further, I would love to get some feedback
on a few things I got running through my mind. Sorry to take so long
to get to my questions!
***QUESTIONS ARE HERE***
Firstly, from your experience, is it easier or harder, to sell multiple
low-priced items every day compared to high priced items?
For example, selling FIVE $20 items vs ONE $100 item. What is the general
consensus on this?
Secondly, for the "not all eggs in one basket" rule, do you believe it makes
more sense for me to build 4 individual mini-businesses that each produce
$25 a day, instead of one bigger entity?
Lastly, I was just thinking about recurring earnings, like you get from member
sites. Surely it would be smarter to market recurring based products/services
than one-time only items? Anyone have any links to decent sites which list
affiliate programs that are recurring based?
Thank you so much for reading. I do realise that there really is no black and
white answer for what I asking, so please do share your opinions and
experiences. That is what I am here for.
I look forward to contributing back to this forum in due time.
