Hope you are all well on this fine Monday! I thought I would throw one out there for FREE that would give you an insight into another little money maker I have been carrying out for the past few months that creates easy money, residuals to be precise in the offline niche! ; )
I call this the RENT A SITE MODEL!
The name really probably speaks for itself but what I have tested over the past few months is a business model to actually rent out ready made websites that already sit nicely on the search engines! Some of you may have already thought of doing this and maybe doing this, but for the ones that aren't, this is an easy sell with minimal work!
Ok so how does this work,
Well, its quite simple. Rather than trying to sell a potential website to a business owner, what I have been doing is setting up a simple HTML search engine friendly site, optimizing it and renting it out!
The site in question I actually set up with Xsitepro but you can use wordpress. I pick a niche, so for example Hypnotherapists and pick an area, whether it be your local area or another area of the country. I then register a keyword rich domain name so if I was going to target hypnotherapists I would get hypnotherapistyourarea.com or hypnotherapyyourarea.com
Something along those lines! I would then set the site up around 5 profitable searched for keywords and with generic keyword rich content, relevant graphics and upload the site. I would then optimize it and wait until it has hit top page for a few keywords and then market it. I would also add the site to the local google listings as well to add more exposure and selling points.
But sometimes this can take a while to go live so I dont wait!
When I market it I would call hypnotherapists locally and show them the ready made site and post classifieds showing it off as a ready made optimized solution on CL or other free classified sites. Then for the best part!
I have been selling 2 packages for the ready made site:
1. Content Change and Contact Details Change - Around $100-$150 a month! No setup fees! Great selling point!
2. Content and Image Changes - Around $100 - $150 a month but with an added setup fee. This I have flexibilty with depending on the amount of graphical changes I need to make but usually nothing lower than $500!
This is the most popular package becasue every business wants to put there own stamp on the site and this is the one package I sell more heavily! But for businesses strapped for cash, the 1st package is ample.
The beauty of this though is that the site remains mine including the domain name and I just pick up easy RENTAL residuals. If you bring in 12 or 24 month contracts the money only becomes better. I haven't done this yet but intend to!
Business owners can see what they are buying in to and also have the added bonus of being live the very same day!
Now, if a business owner doesn't want it anymore, all you do is rent it to someone else! SIMPLE, EASY RESIDUAL CASH! But if the site is in prime position for targeted searched for keywords, who would want to give the site up?
I have tried and tested this on 3 different niches now and have rented all sites out very quickly, as it is an easy sell. It's there and in full view! If one business owner doesn't take it, his or her competitor will. I just cold call businesses and post classifieds, show my site off and collect the check!
Simple and easy!
The only costing I have is the domain, hosting and phone bill for contacting clients! ; ) NOTHING REALLY!
You see, the offline niche is bursting with many ways you can do this, so give it a go and you may just get a few clients! ; )
Now Go Get 'Em!
