Alright, here is an exact way to make a hundred dollars...very easily..this is a great way to make investment cash
For this method i'll use web design as an example
Step 1: Go to craigslit.org and head over to the web design section of any city. What you need to do is make a post telling people that you need professional web designers that want to make money. Let them know that you have jobs for them and that you will have more jobs in the near future.
Tell them to respond to the ad. Once you get a response from people..reply to them and tell them that basically you are looking for someone to outsource design work to. Let them know that they have a very useful talent and that you have the abilities to allow them to make money while doing what they love. Make sure you tell them how it will go..you are going to find clients...qualify them...get the work..send it to your designer...get the finished product...send back to client. get paid..and send designer 75% of the payment. Most people are going to go for this because the majority will not know how to market themselves as a designer.
Note* I made my post about 2 months ago...i have 8 designers signed up and about 16 emails that I never answered. I also get emails to this very day looking to get on board. And the best part is that I made my post in a very small town (where I live). This really works.
Step 2: Get at least 1 response signed up and make sure you keep track of their information. Get some samples from them to keep on file. I would suggest creating 3 folders.a main folder for the business model..and then inside that you put a clients and a designer folder.
Step 3: Next you need to get clients. There are a few ways you can do this:
- Make a post on craigslist offering design work
- Respond to posts on craigslist looking for design work (check NYC and any other big cities..people make requests on these everyday)
- Create a WSO
- Use other forums
- Start a website for the service and promote it like any other website
Basically you just need to get clients and then forward the jobs to your designers...let them handle it and send it back to your client and make sure you send payment to your designers.
That's it...its actually very simple and you could have it set up today if you take focused action right now.
A few quick notes:
A happy designer means more money for you...try to work with your designers and not treat them as employees..after all they are basically letting you outsource to them without paying up front.
It's very possible to scale this up into a business if you get creative..but also it is a very easy way to make some money.
So what are you waiting for? Take action!
