    I would tell them to look around their house and see what they don't need or want anymore and sell it. They could offer a service here at WF but that is going to have an investment cost and your not guaranteed success--especially with a low post count.

      Uh, yeah.

      What do they have to sell? What are your talents? Are you just looking for 3k this month?

      Answers will be very different depending on circumstances.

        I would tell them to analyze their skills and analyze market demands. Where those two meet, is where they should put their efforts.

        I would then have them draft out 3 different plans with escalating levels of success. There would be a Plan A, Plan B and Plan C.

        I would have each Plan tied to a time line.

        That way if things are not going quite the way anticipated, they have two back up plans to be sure they hit their goal.

    I would suggest to launch a couple WSOs (free and paid), build a list, and then monetize the list through with affiliate offers. But yeah, like everyone else said...it really just depends on the person. What works for some, might not work for others. You need to figure out what their strengths are and find something that works for other people, talk to them about it, and if it sounds right, commit to it.

    Well, you're probably not going to like my answer, but I'd highly advise going offline instead of doing purely online marketing if your goal is to make $3k by the end of May.

    What I'd recommend is a mixture of cold-calling (5 hours or more a day) and sending out video reviews (in envelopes with a CD or USB flash drive enclosed) to qualified businesses who aren't on the first page of Google.

    Don't worry about the technical aspect of things, as this can be quite easily outsourced. What you want to do is contact as many leads as you can each day (150 or more) and sell them simple websites and/or SEO services. Even if you price your websites at $200 a pop (which is ridiculously low), you should be able to get 5+ sales if you're contacting close to 1,000 businesses per week - that's a minimum of $1,000. Multiply that by 4, and you should have at least $4,000 by the end of May.

    I won't lie to you and say that it's going to be a piece of cake. You're going to have to be diligent about contacting 150-200 qualified offline businesses every single day, and you may not like to cold call, but I can promise that you'll reach and even exceed your $3,000 monthly goal if you just do it!

      I know those numbers make sense because i used to do door to door marketing and i know that 1-3 sales in every 100 is realistic if you are good

      i guess you got to get a team together and go for it

        Exactly, if you're able to work in a team with a few others, you're much more likely to follow through with this, as being in a team atmosphere can be very motivational for everyone involved.

        Nevertheless, this still can be done by yourself, if you're willing to stick with it and commit to calling 150+ people every day. Once you've done this for a while, it can be outsourced so that you don't have to do this grunt work anymore!

          wow, 150 calls per day thats insane!!unless u r marketing a product thats designed for the masses I think that number isnt right if you are trying to sell to biz owners...and yes the convertion rate from 100 calls would be less then 3% if you are looking to make a phone sale!! What I usually do is not to take the phone to make a sale but to get to talk with the biz owner and then make an appointment with him,! thats what the phone call is for, and in this case I can get as much as 5-7 appointments per every 10 calls!!...
          offline marketing is kinda easy once you have a system or a way to do things...just take action...My goal for this month is to make $70,000 MXP (about 6K USD) and build a passive income of 10,000 MXP (about 900 USD)...guess what Im selling?
          Regards!

      Loved your answer Paul. That is a great sugestion... but the only problem is that it requires that FOUR letter word... WORK.

      Based on my experience most people are looking for that Magic EASY Button that doesn't exist.

      Anyone could make tons of CASH selling all kinds of products if they were simply willing to Cold Call 150 - 200 people per day.

      My recommendation is to use Pauls advise calling 150 - 200 people a day but instead of Websites... sell High Ticket Item. Just one sell could land you $3,000 - $4,000.

      But the real question is... are you willing to do the WORK?

      I'd do something similar to this if I were really tight on cash. The old advertise free business web sites in the newspaper (give them a template) and make your actual money off a hosting affiliate program. You'd have to sell about 50 or so hosting packages to hit $3k.

      You can tack on any number of services from custom design to SEO or email list setups.

        Jack, actually with Hostgator, if you manage to sell 50 hosting accounts within a month's time, I believe the commission rate is $125 per sale, so you'd get $6250 - more than double the required $3k!

        The only snag with this strategy is that you'd have to wait more than 30 days for your commission payment to arrive, even if you made all those sales today.

          Hi, paulie

          I was wondering have you done/are you doing this at the moment? It's just that:

          1) It does seem to be very doable (selling 'free' invariably is - or, rather, should be) and so it does beg the question: "Why aren't more people doing this"?

          2) (Perhaps answering point (1)): I've heard stories (from more than one source) about HostGator not paying up, or even "punishing" you for being too successful.

          If you're doing this, I guess we'd have a more definitive answer, even if it would be just one person's experience.

    It will depend, on what you already know and what you are willing to learn quick.

    If you are willing to go on appointments, and meet with prospects, I'm biased toward offline.

    Assuming you can get in front of qualified people, and get their agreement, the earnings would come quicker offline than most online methods I know of. Even if online would pay you in a few weeks, I'm betting the amounts would be pretty small.

    $3000 is a pretty stiff goal from scratch anyway, but I do know someone personally who did it, and know of others who have earned similar amounts selling to local businesses. This can include selling advertising for online, website design, copywriting,
    seo, mobile and more. ...but anything you do, with only 30 days, you would need to start like yesterday.

    Why do people seem to think this is impossible? It actually isn't hard to do if you're willing to work for it...?

    You could sell web design, SEO, mobile marketing, google places, etc. without doing anything, you could outsource it.

      That's what I was trying to stress above. This is a very feasible goal that can be accomplished, as long as you're not afraid of speaking to people and are willing to get out from behind your computer.

        The problem most people have is that they want to sit there and plan and plan and plan, then try and make it perfect and better and then 3.5 weeks in they realize it's too late.

        Get out there and do the messy work that you don't want to do..

        I agree, it's TOTALLY possible, and even moderately SIMPLE (not easy, note the difference)... the thing is everyone wants the easy route. They want to do it without having to put themselves out there. Without having to face other people. Without having to actually get off their computer chair and do some work.

    i think gengis that you mean how to make this kind of money i will tell you

    there is three good ways first use your twitter followers as your slaves and keep post them links to any of clickbank offer or something

    second facebook friends you can send them everyday a cpa offer which is like download or something so they won't buy anything at all and you can use the same thing with your twitter people easily i think that will be a very good start cause i know site that makes even more than that i want examples will be in private cause i can't post links in the topic till i reach the 15 posts
    my 1st example a site owner is making $13000 a day and i can proof it
    the 2nd is making more than $17000 a day
    so it's not a problem at all and why to go far people how much google is making a year they are making $25 billion dollar so it's not crazy or not impossible at all
    if you want any more advices please talk to me in private have a nice day and good luck

    Oddly I am in this EXACT situation. I'm attempting to come up with $3000 extra by May 14th so I can go visit my girlfriend for a month before she heads off to the Navy.

    So far, I've:
    - Listed anything that I no longer want (and some stuff I do) on craigslist
    - Set up a bunch of fiverr gigs
    - Bumped my WSO
    - Posted ads for various things I can do in the services section of CL and picked up some work. (not just IM related.. photography, brokering cars, etc. etc. etc)
    - Set out to create a new product - which should provide a decent cash injection.
    - Hit the streets again looking for another lead client
    - Searched CL "gigs" section for anything that I'm able to do, and did those (I even helped an older lady move and made $110 in cash)
    - Even offered my writing services (you know I'm desperate if I did that! haha).

    The point I'm trying to make is that if you NEED (or really want) to make $3000... do whatever you need to do to make it happen. Take MASSIVE action and don't let small crap get in your way. Stop planning, start DOING.

    Set up a lease site, get it ranked all over the first pages of Google and rent it to an offline business for 6 to 12 months in advance. I did this a few times to make some quick cash to fund a few projects I was working on.

    6 months at $500 a month = $3000
    12 months at $250 a month = $3000

    Total time to set up = 3-4 hours
    Ranked on first pages of Google in 24-48 hours

    Costs:

    Hosting: $9
    Domain: $9
    Virtual Number: 30 days free ($4.88)
    Wordpress Theme: Free
    Bookmarking: Free

    Rinse and Repeat!

      Sounds like a great plan, what kind of offline businesses should one be approaching? I can't think of anything lucrative.

        I personally like to target businesses like Plumbers, House Painters, Locksmiths, Realtors, Dog Trainers and basically people that service areas and dont have a location that clients need to go to.

        Do a quick search on craigslists services section and you will find tons of niches that this can work for.

        I am 95% done with complete how to WSO for this method. Should be up by Monday or Tuesday at the latest. I have been bombarded with PM's, emails, and forum replies asking more about this method. After everyone asking me to release a WSO on it, I decided to finally put one together since I have all my clients I need now and want to focus more on consulting and speaking gigs to Realtors and Mortgage Brokers which is what I am doing already.

    If you have the skills to build sites you could set up three or four adsense sites and diligently work on ranking them and sending decent traffic. At the end of 30 days, you could flip them for a decent multiple of monthly earnings. I would, however, advise doing this in conjunction with the offline ideas above as there are no guarantees you will make enough bank...but then, there rarely are!

      Here's 3 ways I'd use to make at least $3,000 within 30 days;

      1) RESTAURANT VIDEOS ON SPEC - Restaurants spend lots of time & money on their INTERIORS. However, their Interiors are NOT SEEN until people are INSIDE the restaurant. I found a way to SHOW the Interiors of restaurants via Videos on the Internet.....and....restaurant owners willing to pay $350 and up for MY videos.

      Here's what I did;
      a) Went to WalMart and bought a "Portable DVD Player" (Phillips $80)
      b) I made a Sample Video by asking a restaurant manager if I could "Take a few shots of the Interior"
      c) Put together a Video using the photos and background music (Here's my first sample... Go to YouTube and type in Ambrosia Restaurant in Eugene Oregon)
      d) Burned a DVD and showed restaurant owner

      Starting at 9am till 11am....on ANY weekday....
      a) I enter 3 or 4 restaurants and ask owners if I can show them a way to bring them more diners.
      b) Show sample video on Portable DVD Player...then ask if I can take some shots and make up a Sample Video for them...at NO obligation
      c) Take 12 to 15 shots of interior and outside (takes 20 min per restaurant)
      d) Create Videos with PhotoStory 3
      e) Go back to restaurants next day, and show Videos I produced and Sell videos for use on their websites and Tube Mogul for $350 to $550 each.

      I average selling 2 videos a day. In 10 days I've got $4500.

      2) MOBILE WEB SITES ON SPEC -
      a) I bought Quentin Brown's "Mobile Script" (I'm not affilated in any way. Just a satisfied customer)
      b) Went OnLine for restaurants in an area....looking for restaurant sites that have NOT been "Mobilized" (Able to be seen on Mobile Devices)
      c) Created Mobile Sites for 4 restaurants and showed restaurants that their sites have been "Mobilized". I charge a min of $350 plus a Monthly.

      Selling 2 a day...I have 10 sold ($3,500) in a week.

      3) WEBSITES ON SPEC - targeting "Service" businesses like Plumbers, Electricians, Pest Controls, Roofers, etc. I found that many of these do NOT yet have websites and....they really don't care about "Fancy-Schmancy WebSites"! What they WANT is "LEADS"!....preferably HOT Leads! So....here's what I do;
      a) Register an "ego-centered" Domain for a town (TacomasBestPlumber.com)
      b) Create a 1-page website that has basic info on it AND....a Form for Highly Interested people (aka Hot Leads) to enter info on Form and click the Link.
      c) Send email to 10 competing services telling them I have created a website for THEM....that this email is going to 9 of their competitors and....if THEY would like to RENT this "Lead-Generating" website....to contact me Immediately.

      I charge $750 for 3-mo rent. 4 of these brings in $3,000.

      So....there are MY answers to the "$3,000 in 30 days" question.

      If anyone feels these have helped give you some "Ideas"....give me a "Thank You".

      Thanks,
      Don Alm

          This is probably going to depend on a few factors, including the type of restaurant you're targeting, the city it's in, and also the length of the video.

    Cold calling.

    Okay, let me explain. $3000 within a month is quite doable actually if done right. Here's what I'd advise:

    1. Find a reputable SEO company that offers quality services at a cheaper rate. You can find several people offering such services here in WF as well.

    2. Find offline businesses with little online presence. Identify their niche, and possible keywords they could rank for. Call them up. Tell them - "I'm blah blah from blah blah...do you know that there are XXXX global searches made monthly for XXX XXX keyword on Google? Do you know that most people who search for these key terms usually click on the first 5 websites that show up in the search engines results page? Imagine how many clients you could get if you're on the top 5 of Google for this keyword...blah blah". That's very roughly put, but you get the idea. Don't bore them with technical terms.

    3. Make as many calls as you can. Some will hang up, some will hear you out. Offer your services for double the price of the cheap service you'll be buying on WF. Meaning, if the SEO service on WF costs $47, you tell your offline clients it will cost them $97. That's an easy $50 profit. Say you make 20 calls a day and out of these 20, you get 2 orders. That's $100 a day - $3000 a month.

    Well, it's easier said than done. But if you put an effort, you surely can get to something.


    Cheers,
    Jou

    It is very easy to find websites of local businesses not ranking on page 1
    of Google and to do a quick presentation showing them this via a program
    like Snagit and also showing them how many people are searching for them
    and not finding them, but finding their competition instead.

    I found that offering to re-build their sites with better SEO and helping them
    to rank, has been met with great interest and paying upwards of $1k for a
    site re-build was looked upon as quite a bargain.

    Have the mindset that you have the knowledge to help them and not that
    of a salesman, and you will find that more often than not, they will be very
    grateful to receive that help.

  • There are some great posts here and great ideas. I personally would tell them to spend at least 3 of those days solid on the forum here doing research. This forum, as many of you already know, is packed full of more information than anyone could ever use. If one can't spend the time on this forum and find at least 10 ideas they could start using immediately and put money in their pocket they seriously have a problem.

      So this thread has given a ton of great ideas for reaching 3k a month by the end of May.

      Now, I just wanted to toss one very important thing out there.

      No matter how you plan on doing it; PLAN.

      Make a plan, stick to it, and focus ONLY on things that have to do with that plan.

      STOP checking your email every 5 minutes.
      STOP hanging out in forums.
      STOP looking for the magic bullett (there isn't one)

      There are literally dozens of ways to make 3k a month but you have to pick the one you think best suits you and GO FOR IT!

      Best of luck,

      James

      P.s If you do what Paul suggested I can't see how you can possibly fail.

        Here's another;

        1) Choose a Niche. Service businesses or Restaurants in your area.
        2) Google the niche and note the websites on the SECOND and THIRD Pages (You could keep going but for starters just go with 10 businesses)
        3) List the Names of the businesses and mark down their email addys (or use Manta.com to find owner name & email)
        4) Send email with Subject line of; "Your Website Stinks!" or..."FREE Report Reveals Why Your website is NOT Working for you!" Get them to REACT and TAKE ACTION...NOW! by opening your email!
        Body of email is designed to get prospects to "Reply".

        "My FREE Report Reveals WHY your website is not working for you, bringing you more business! To receive my detailed FREE Report, just click "Reply" with your name and title and it will be sent to you.
        Thank you,
        Your Name"

        5) When you get responses....go to the following FREE Page,
        http://www.metafever.com/free-seo-report/
        enter the URL of the site you want to get a Report of. (You won't believe the DETAILED stuff you get)
        Dowload the Report to a Word Processor and Modify the report removing anything that does not pertain to YOU. And, enter in YOUR Contact Info.

        Now....understand that I AM NOT SELLING ANYTHING HERE....NOR AM I CONNECTED IN ANY WAY WITH THE "MetaFever" site!...therefore you will have to "play" with the wording until you get a 20% response. 2 out of 10 asking for your FREE Report.

        Email the Report to your prospects saying that YOU....will Correct each part of the Report and make the recommended adjustments so their site can get a BETTER POSITION on Google...for a fee of $297 (sent to your PayPal account)

        Now....granted....some prospects may give your Report to their webmaster or even.... try making the recommended corrections themselves. That's OK! Let them go. HOWEVER...you will be amazed at the number who want YOU to do the "Corrections"!

        Just TEN....NOT 100 or 50 or 20! Just 10 people paying you $297, gives you your $3,000....and....you can continue on forever...making $3,000 EVERY WEEK if you want.

        And....the really neat thing here is....you simply send 10 emails with a "Subject Line to GRAB THEIR ATTENTION AND REACT!" NO...phoning! Let your prospects come to you!

        And...once again....you won't believe the FREE Info this Report gives you. Try it on one of your websites and see what comes back. It's astounding!

        And...if you are hesitant about making any of the corrections...there are plenty of "techies" who'd LOVE to do this for you.

        Now....there is absolutely NOTHING to stand in your way except your own INaction!

    or else I would sacrifice something, I'd get a job
    or two without thinking. If you have to shovel dirt
    or clean toilets, there are people out there who do
    it. You will survive if you work a regular job.

    Thanks,

    My plan of action is in the assumption that the person looking to make $3,000 has absolutely no idea how they plan to achieve this goal. This method is what I use personally and also teach others when such a question arises.

    Step 1: It's best to write down this $3,000 dollar goal in the form of a open ended question.

    For example: How can I earn $3,000 in the next month?

    Why is this important you might ask. Well when you ask yourself an open ended question your brain begins to analyze the question in more detail and helps you build an archive of answers. Which is key to the next step. A question you do not want to ask is something such as:

    How can I earn $3,000 in the next month at my job?

    This close ended question automatically limits the brain's ability to properly anatomize the goal. It may seem like common sense not to do this but unfortunately the majority continuously do it. Now on to step 2.

    Step 2: Once you have the proper question written down, write down a list of answers your come up with. No less that 20 no more than 25 answers.

    Why is this important. As I stated before, and open ended question will force the brain to come up with an archive of possible answers. However the draw back is, many of those possibilities are forgotten with in the first 7 seconds of it's inception. It's important to write the possibilities down as best you can so that you can come back to them when you finish the list.

    Step 3: After you have complied your list it's time to get started and act on what you have written. In most cases the list will start from the most obvious choices to things you never truly thought about before. Select which options you want and act daily.

    Best of luck to you.

    I love it! WF would have 3K in Pennies each month for every time someone asks a question like this.

    Amazingly its new content every time, in addition to the threads like, "what to do if you're desperate" ; and there was a recent thread where someone had a new year's resolution... didn't work out

    Anyways, can someone post the link to these threads? I still don't know the rules about link posting. Cheers.

    Thanks Paul. I wish I was brave enough to try offline cold calling. I am still burned by my own memories of trying to sell cutlery door to door from my past...

      For those suggesting selling some of your stuff. This is not making money, It is merely exchanging one asset for it's cash value, ergo you've not made money.

    Sell all your flat screen TVs, your watch, and whatever else of value you have on ebay. You could also flip a couple domain names and make $3000, but you would have to invest a couple hundred.

    If you want to make money fast, try using whatever knowledge you may have and releasing a WSO or try releasing your own click bank product.

    Website and house flipping could also rack you some short term gains if you know how to and have some start up cash.

    I would say cut crap like article writing for article directories, or at least reduce it (it's a slow proces really and if you don't really like writing, cranking out 10 articles a day is just another annoying job) Instead of focusing on it fully, focus your attention on:

    Guestposting

    This way you can reach a wider audience. Before you do this, make sure you have a nice looking blog/website and some great articles on it, so it doesn't look like you started your blog just yesterday. Write 10-15 articles for your own blog first hand before you approach blog owners. Offer them to write an article for their blog. Most people would be glad to accept free content if you have something of value to offer... In this scenario, think of articles of 800 words or more.

    Also try to help as many people possible and instead of waiting till they come to you and find your site, try to really get in front of them yourself. PM them in forums, find people on twitter or facebook that need help, do whatever you have to do to get in front of your prospect...

    Keep in mind that your main intention is to help them... Be genuinely willing to help them, without doing any promoting at all!!!!!!!! (very important, no one likes sales people!)

    Just send them over to a helpful article on your blog, rather than directly to an affiliate link. And at the end of the article do the promoting.

    EDIT: Oh excuse me, I forgot to mention something really important... Also START NETWORKING!

    I recently bought a really great book on the subject, over 200 pages for $1, and I must say it's one of the best books I've ever read...
    It's called Networking Awesomely by Colin Wright

    I would have to agree with the offline method of selling advertising to local businesses. I was in a similar spot and that's exactly what I did. Create a plan and a small presentation, put it in a notebook or a laptop in PowerPoint . Gather prospects by collecting all the ads in your area from the newspapers and flyers. Call them on the phone and say, "hey Mr. Business owner, I ran across your ad and would like to come by and speak with you on how I can take this same ad viral for you". The web page leasing that was metion above does work great, I did something similar. There's many ways to offer advertising services to local businesses that are more willing to pay for that service than trying to figure the online competitive rat race. Good Luck!

      Here's one that is easy-peasy and GUARANTEED to earn you $3,000 in 30 days!

      BALLOON DELIVERY!

      Yup....here's how you can make $3,000 BEFORE 30 days;

      1) Go to your local "Dollar Store" and buy 3 "Happy Birthday" balloons, 3 "Happy Mother's Day" balloons, 1 "Yellow Smiley Face" balloon AND 3 balloons with other things on them. (You choose the designs YOU like) All for ONE DOLLAR! 10 Balloons = your TOTAL Investment of $10

      2) Go to a local INDEPENDENT Bakery where there is an "Individual Owner"! Walk in with your 10 Balloons. Tell the owner that almost every CAKE he sells, especially B'Day Cakes....he can also sell a Balloon to go with it! And....other Cakes for other occasions can also go with the cakes! (Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, Graduations etc)

      YOU would like to be HIS SOURCE FOR BALLOONS!

      3) Tell him he can sell the balloons for $3.99....he can keep $1 and give you $2.99 on each balloon. Now...here comes the "CAN'T MISS" part of your presentation....tell him you will LEAVE THE BALLOONS ON "CONSIGNMENT"....he will ONLY PAY you the $2.99 each WHEN THEY SELL!

      Have him sign a piece of paper that spells out how many balloons you gave him.

      4) RINSE and REPEAT:
      Go back to Dollar Store and pick up 10 more balloons. Go to another bakery and make same offer.
      Go to 4 more bakeries. Your "investment" is now $50.
      By the time you get back from contacting the 5th bakery....your phone will be ringing with RE-Orders from the first 2 bakeries. Go pick up your $2.99 per balloon...$29.90 per bakery. They've made $10 PLUS provided a GREAT SERVICE to their Cake Customers (which will bring them MORE business....because THEY now offer Balloons WITH their cakes!)

      So....what WILL happen is....5 bakeries will be selling 20 balloons a day (or more)....you make $2 per balloon....$40/day x 5 = $200/day In 15 days you will have $3,000 in your hot little hands.

      Now....depending on how many INdependent Bakeries are near you....you could have 10 bakeries earning you $40/day = $400/day which means you will have your 3 Grand in A WEEK!

      So....THIS has nada to do with the Internet or PC's or anything "electronic"....you are simply providing a NEEDED SERVICE for local bakeries AND....their customers!

      Go FOR it! ALL it takes is ACTION!

      Don Alm
      P.S. Anyone appreciating THIS idea...give me a "Pat On The Back" with some "Thank Yous" to "keep ME motivated"

    I see this thread giving the same advice over and over again. Well, if you could
    do this, you could make that. Really it depends on what you are capable of doing
    in such a short amount of time even if this is unrelated to internet marketing. Sure
    you can sell somethings that you own and what not, but there really is no fast way
    of making quick cash online or offline.

    Sure you can go ahead and move towards offline marketing, but that takes time to
    get going and can be a headache at times unless you know exactly what you are doing.
    If I were you, I'd hang around the offline marketing forum to get some insight on what
    you could do to make some cash with offline marketing.

    Although some people think this method is dead, It truly isn't. I've made 300 dollars in the past week just from selling stuff on eBay. Some people have made millions off of it. You just need to figure out what a great deal or deals are, and then take the time to list hundreds of them. Luckily if you get a lot of the same thing, you can use "Sell Similar" feature, and I do that all the time. Just an idea.

      I'm sorry folks. Most of you DE-pend on "letting your fingers earn you money!" "US"..."Face-To-Face" sales guys who know how to "let our mouths earn money"....can walk into ANY business tomorrow morning (owned by an Individual) and walk out with a check for $500 and more... within a few minutes!

      Almost all of my competitors are sending emails, postcards, sales letters, making hundreds of phone calls.....trying to stay away from "IN-Person" sales calls....while I simply walk into a business...talk to the owner, show him what I'm doing and HOW it will benefit him and WHY he should PAY ME for my service....and walk out with a CHECK and a Committment for my "service".

      When I leave...my new client goes back to his office...deletes the Sales Emails and the Phone Messages and dumps the postcards and sales letters into the Round File.

      C'mon folks...it's gettin' highly competitive out there and those with the aptitude and know-how of making IN-Person sales calls on prospects WILL not only Survive....but...THRIVE....in the coming months.

      Better Bone-Up on IN-Person Sales Techniques, Products and Services if YOU wanna make money!

      My BEST Potential Clients (in the Off-Line arena) are businesses with the words..."NO Solicitors!" pasted on their front doors....because I know those words have kept most other salespeople away.

      I saunter in....show the Boss my program, why it will benefit him, the price and why he should give ME a check...now.

      I can do this 4 to 5 times a day....collecting $300 to $500 from each sale PLUS a nice residual and I'm SECURE in the knowledge that I, and others like me, WILL....THRIVE....no matter what the economy does.

      "WE" are DE-pendent upon NO ONE....but....ourselves!

        I guess not ALL of us are great face-to-face sales people...

        I know first hand how skeptical most people could be (especially here in The Netherlands)... Truth is you need a great service and YOU HAVE TO DELIVER RESULTS TOO! It's risky.

        And in my case there is another roadblock... I'm 25 and I look like 18. Who is going to take ME seriously? (But hey I just speak for myself)

          Girl, I'd take YOU, seriously! if you are as cute as your avatar pic that is! haha
          Truth is face to face sales are key for us the professional independents...I also look much younger for my age (27) but that isnt a problem if you show professional demeanor and you know what you are talking about. Its also lotta fun and helps you improve your communication and social skills above the average...its all in our heads, overcome social fear, make connections, pass through the gate keepers, having control of the situation at all times...open ended questions and all the different kinds of sales closings...
          Problem with freelancers is that they spend 10% of the time hgetting sales leads or marketing their services out there if any and 90% getting the few jobs they got done...
          the key to more money is to invert those numbers: 90% selling whatever you offer, and 10% of your time outsourcing it and just check how the job is getting done...

          Ive come to a point where I realized I can sell pretty much any online services I come up with to biz owners (from websites design, SEO, fb pages or renting websites) position myself as expert (cuz I already know how to do that stuff so I knw what to say) But I dont actually have to do any of those things!!

          Don is right, get out there and earn!

            It's not that I believe I'm not able to sell the service. I'm just afraid business owners will not believe I'm actually able to deliver any results.

            I don't believe I suck, it's the service that will suck I guess:p... I've been breaking my head over what kind of services I should offer, one that I will actually be able to deliver.

            I'm a perfectionist. I just think the pressure is high when dealing with offline companies. They are waiting for results... what if you fail?

              I don't know if it's a cultural thing in your country, but I would guess not?

              Seems just like your own confidence and you are using your age as a barrier, kind of like when you try to sell something, you have to break down all the barriers, all the objections.

              So, if you really want to try it you should overcome this objection that you are putting up for yourself!

              Many who are even barely 18 years old do well selling to offline companies and they do deliver results. The best way is to get that first client and then deliver the results and then after that, the age doesn't matter.

              I've been there darling, but you only fail if you dont overcome the fear of: what if I fail?...if you try to go for them with that thought in mind you already failed...just start with simple services like I dunno maybe simple yet nice html websites, then set up your terms and conditions, then manage their expectations, make open ended questions and while you do that start start filling the agreement,...once your pen has touched the paper in front of them, you have 90% of the sale done

                What kind of agreement do you have to sign? :confused:

                Btw, what if you want to help business owners outside your country? In that case, how do you sign an "agreement"?

                I understand the importance of putting everything on paper, but who is responsible for the contract? Better yet, how do you create such an agreement or put together a contract for the client?

                  dont overthink things, a simple form stating description of job, quantity, amount of $ and deliverytime will do the job ...you fill it as u talk2 mister client it acts to formaize things and indirectly get the sale ...at least thats how I use it.

          That's exactly right and that's why people who ARE do so well.

          I've got a great personality... but it's not a sales personality. Tbh I hate reading all these fantastic offline ideas because I know I won't do them.

          Which is an interesting mental problem I have--I could really use the money.

    Whatever you do, I would do a lot of simultaneous things. No time for being sequential here. Massive Action. Figure out what works and do more of it. Cut the losers fast.

    Online marketing to offline businesses would be quick and easy. Just setting up wordpress sites using some offline template could be enough to get the job done. And even bundle in a Facebook Fan Page - make it a twofer if you are desperate.

      The more desperate you look, the less money you make...its all about perceptions... an offer like that would make you lose money...never shortsell yourself...

        I'm not suggesting doing things that look desperate such as crazy discounting - that always attracts the wrong type of client. I'm suggesting making smart pricing options available like bundling.

        If you approach people like a rabid chihuahua trying to sell them you will repel them for sure. But if you have a valuable offer that is effectively priced, then you will win.

    This thread is more like it. The 3mill a month one was a bit too much.

    The problem with these threads is the mindset.

    If I release a product tomorrow, I can have $10k inside of a week.

    But I can't release a product tomorrow unless it's already been built. And building the product takes a bare minimum of another week.

    But I can't build the product unless it's already been researched and planned. And the researching and planning takes a bare minimum of about eight more weeks.

    So if I were to sit down and start today, it would take me about ten weeks to put that $10k in my pocket.

    Which I could, indeed, say is $1k a week. And I could even say it's over $3k a month.

    And if I pretend the research didn't happen, and handwave the week it takes the money to come in, I can pretend the time I spent building the product was all the time it took and I made $10k in a week.

    In fact, I can break down the exact hours I spent working on the product that week - probably about ten of them - and say I made $1,000 an hour.

    But the reality is that it took me ten weeks to make that $10k, and no ten weeks means no $10k.

    In fact, the ability to make $10k in a week is something that has taken me two years of full-time IM experience to develop, and it relies on management skills developed over the course of ten years... business experience developed over twenty years... and writing experience developed over thirty years.

    If you remove any of those things, the "$10k in ten weeks" idea goes flying out the window without even saying goodbye.

    The primary reason I can make $10k with a product launch is that I know several influential marketers with big lists that love my products. So if I really buckle down and start Skyping like mad for people to mail my offer, I can put my sales page in front of 50,000 people. At 1% conversion, that's 500 sales, and if you figure a $47 product with 50% affiliate commission - that's about $10k after fees and expenses.

    But I'm betting you can't do that. Because if you could, you wouldn't be asking this question.

    Let me tell you what I did to get here.

    First, I offered my services as a writer, which I could do because of my thirty years writing experience.

    I wrote on a lot of technical and professional subjects, which I could do because of my twenty years business experience.

    I reverse-engineered my clients' operations as I went, which I could do because of my ten years management experience.

    And after doing that for a year, I had learned enough to know product creation was the right path for me and my skillset, and to start making products that didn't suck.

    Six months later, my products that didn't suck had gathered enough of a following that I started getting in touch with higher-end marketers. Some of them helped me make products that not only didn't suck, but were actually awesome. And, armed with an awesome product, it became very easy for me to find JV partners and affiliates.

    But my monthly income last year was HALF what you're trying to make in a month. I made $18k last year. It wasn't a cushy lifestyle or a shiny happy friendly experience; things frequently sucked, and on more than one occasion I had to figure out how to live on something like a box of saltines and two cans of spinach for a week.

    The question is always the same, and Tony Robbins has put it eloquently.

    Are you willing to do what needs to be done to get where you want to go?

    Because if you're not prepared to do hard work for low pay while you map the territory and plan your route, the answer is frequently going to be "you can't get there from here."

      Ok...OK....this one has NADA to do with IM or PCs...however....someone here might enjoy the "Creativity" of this and How I've been able to make a "Nice Chunk of Change" every May.

      Here's how I came up with this one;

      Ask yourself what happens every "Memorial Day to Labor Day"?

      Right! People with children start traveling. They usually stay in Hotels/Motels and they usually do NOT bring food (other than snacks) with them. This means they eat at RESTAURANTS!

      Well....what restaurants do they choose? Who knows? It's helter-skelter.

      What if I could direct these travelers with children to restaurants that "I CHOOSE"? And...if I could DRAMATICALLY INCREASE the Diners to the restaurants I choose to be IN my program....what would these restaurants be willing to pay?....if anything?

      Well....here's what I've done since 2002...right after the Motel business came to a screeching halt after "911".

      I go to 6 decent motels in an area. Super 8's, Motel 6's, Comfort Inns, Best Westerns, Travelodges, Holiday Inn Express....etc. NOT the rundown thingees.

      I show the General Mgr my front desk display...which is a Slant-Back, 8 1/2 wide by 11 high plastic stand. In this stand I place a sheet of paper that says;
      "PARENTS!
      TAKE ONE OF OUR "KIDS EAT FREE CARDS!"
      SHOW THIS CARD TO ONE OF OUR PARTICIPATING RESTAURANTS AND...YOUR KIDS EAT FREE"!

      I provide each of 6 motels with FREE Cards for the entire summer (13 weeks from Memorial Day to Labor Day)

      Now....today, May 3, 2011....I called on 6 nice Motels in a town South of me (pop 25,000)....showed the GM my "Kids Eat Free" program....told him I would get 6 "family" restaurants to participate....and....this program would provide a GREAT Service to your guests who have children...plus, it's Totally FREE!

      ALL 6 GM'S GAVE ME THEIR "OK"! 6 for 6!

      So....tomorrow I will contact restaurants by simply walking in and handing the owner my Display...telling him I can bring him a LOT OF BUSINESS this summer. I explain how the program works and that I'm only looking for SIX retsurants....and the cost is $10 a week per motel....$60/week x 13 weeks = $780....divided into 3 payments of $260 each;

      $260 on Acceptance....$260 on Proof of the Ad....$260 on delivery of the Cards to the Motels.

      So....$780 x 6 = $4,680 Gross...less cost of the Cards (I get full color cards, 16pt glossy, printed both sides for $24/perM So....let's say I need 10,000 Cards ($240) or 20,000 Cards ($480)

      MY NET....CASH IN MY POCKETS IS OVER $4,000....for a few days "work"!

      Granted....some restaurant owners balk; "You mean you're gonna charge me $780 and....I gotta give FREE Meals to da kids?"

      Well....if they don't see that this promotion WILL bring them OODDLES of "Paying Parents"....Extra Diners they would NOT normally get....then, pack up and git outa there. However....every year I'm able to sell the 6 spots in TWO DAYS!....to owners that understand "Marketing and Promotion".

      Now....again....this has nothing to do with IM or PC stuff BUT....if you are ever in a jam and need some Quick Cash....this is a way to get it.

      Don Alm....STILL "Sellin' Stuff"
      P.S. If anyone thinks this idea has merit, give me a "Thank you"! Thanks

      Speaking as offliner, to me the key would be to invert the time you invest in those things...
      Take 1 day to research for an online service that offline businesses desperately need and a reliable provider (here in the warrior forum there are some real goldens services)
      Take no more than one week or less creating my m,arketing materials to brand those services with my name or brand...
      Take 8 more weeks in pure sales cycle and outsorucing (phone calling to get appointments, go to the appointments, get the sale or follow up)...
      good pricing, the right materials and above all your attitude and action will give you money...plus youll get healthier, and your life will become richer because you will develop a network and social skills and you will make money...!

    I'd say it depends on what resources, skills, and interests you already have along with your motivation for getting it done.

    For example if you have a subscriber list find out what they need the most help with then sell them a solution.

    You don't even need a list. Just ask other Warriors and read others questions to find out what people want the most. I'm sure you'll get lots of great ideas for products. Create several products and sell them as a series of WSO's.

    By launching several products on the WSO (perhaps one a week) you're improving your chances of success.

    It's a lot of work, but if you model previously successful WSO's I'm sure it's possible.

    I would research a few niche markets online. Then I would have a couple people build websites to market those niches after selecting some good affiliate products for those. Then I'd purchase this SEO marketing program and learn how to use it on this brand spankin new SEO education website that's coming out. A month is a long time, essentially. That's 28 days away; $3,000/28 days=$107/day. Find a product that's $20 commission each sale. That's 5.4 sales/day needed.

    Hehe

    1 - Make a list of your skills
    2 - Figure out what kind of budget you have for promotion
    3 - Place a classified ad on the Warrior Forum pimping out your skills
    4 - Jump on Elance.com, create a profile and bid on jobs in your skill set

    Realistically, it depends on what the persons skills are. Obviously some skills are more valuable than others

    There's so many ways to do this but personally what I'd do is a product launch to one of my niche lists of 40,000 subscribers to do it.

    Hope that helps.

    Why would you not take it seriously? This is the reason why so many people are broke, because they have no vision. $3000 is nothing these days, if you think it's alot of money i really feel bad for you.
