Is there demand for a high-end "business in a box" that actually works?

19 replies
We have all seen plenty of things like Flippa scams that sell "business in a box" where you can supposedly make $5000 per minute if you just buy their $27 package of crap.

But I have never personally heard of anyone that actually made money by purchasing and using a "business in a box" in the internet marketing world.

I was wondering lately if there would be demand for a real "business in a box" system that would actually be a money-making system. The only catch is that to build a real money-making website that I have in mind, would have a price tag of somewhere around $2000 to $3000 upfront in non-refundable costs.

Do you think there is demand for something like that? For a system that actually is capable of making real passive income for the person who buys it?

Of course in the IM world there could be no "absolute" guarantee of income. But you can still build a system that is likely to succeed and that is based on websites that currently earn income via the same methods.

What do you guys think? Would anyone buy a $2000-3000 system that literally gives you an "already up and running" package that is capable and likely to start making passive income for the owner?

    I think there would be a market for it, but, as you said, in the IM game there is no guarantee for profit, so you would need the absolute trust of the buyers... not impossible, but you would probably need buyers who you have already sold good products to or only promoted quality products to. I know I would be willing to pay premium prices if I was fairly certain I would get a good return

    Yes and No.

    This would depend on (a) how convincing your pitch is, and (b) how trustworthy you are - or are perceived as being. Some top marketers offer courses, for example, where your entry level is in that range - and higher. But their reputation precedes them.

    It also depends on how you illustrate and explain the costs - up-front.

    Simply put yourself in the shoes of your potential buyer. Would YOU trust "you" if you saw a pitch like that?

      I don't

      With all biz on box offers you need to add ...traffic

      None of these offers actually give any real assistance in that regard.

      So if you were to go down that road master that and add it to your offer to justify it

      If the sales pitch is good enough, most people would definitely buy into a system like that. Proof needs to be there.

      Don't be scared of putting out a product with a price tag like that. I know people that sell $10000 products all day long.

      Obviously they have a good following though

    There is definitely a market for it. But market is the key word. You will only be able to successfully sell it if you can market it to potential buyers correctly.

    If we are looking at that sort of price-point you will need to be able to offer a refund if the user does not make money and some sort of system around tracking that.

    It would be a good idea to build up a group of people who can testify the results and even can be available for a phone call from potential clients to prove their success over the phone.

    People need REAL proof these days and everyone in the game has seen the same old promises, you need to be different and stand out as the number one business in a box solution.

    There's a million of them already and some go for more than $3K.

    No, I would not ever buy one.

    What makes your "biz in a box" different from all the others?
    You're selling potential. Nothing more. How is that different from any other system selling potential?
    No guarantee. No refund. Bye bye $3K.

      Lol.

      Well firstly this is not anything I am doing or planning on doing, just thinking about. Obviously to answer any in-depth questions about what makes it special would just require hypothetical answer from me for now, since it first crossed my mind in the last few days.

      Secondly if I did it, it wouldn't be a scam. It would be literally handing someone a website that is highly likely to start earning passive income on a regular basis with no input necessary from the new owner. The "not a scam" part would make it pretty special IMO, since most of the stuff found in the "how to make money online" market is and has always been utter garbage.

        ... and they were hypothetical questions if you did have a business like that. I am highly skeptical of this type of business. I've read more "biz op" scams with some of them costing $15K and more and leaving people with very little to show for their money. I think of these programs as these type of programs:

        Get-Rich-Quick Scams: FTC Cracks Down On Companies That Defrauded 1 Million Customers

        I really don't believe in selling "potential" with potential income claims. But that's me and that's how I would perceive the offer.

  • People wont admit it but most want something all done for cheap that makes them money with no works, management, risk. If you have it, they will buy it. That is a true statement.

      Lol. This is true although I think people will and do admit it, almost too frequently. Every day there is a new thread on this forum "how can I make $10,000 a month within 3 months starting with $0" or something similar. It's basically like asking how to fly to the moon by jumping off your roof and flapping your arms.

      I think ultimately though, people have to choose two of the following when it comes to online business:

      1. A business that is easy to set up.
      2. A business that is cheap.
      3. A business that actually makes a profit.

        Heck, Danny, the crowd running "one night only" seminars at airport hotels are selling boatloads of businesses-in-a-box for five-figure price tags, without saddling themselves with the 'handicap' of actually "having to work"... :rolleyes:

    Depends on the ROI and what you have to do to get it started.

    This is no different to buying any other existing business.

    The point to it really has to be that it is easy for the business to be taken over and easily be able to be continued for the new owner.

    So something like a pre-existing site with revenue, and details of what to do would work. If the business is newly created for the new owner, then that would be harder, especially if there is the potential for failure, which in most cases there is.

    I wouldn't pay $2000-$3000 unless I already knew a lot about the business, so that I could do my due diligence. Knowing the business, I could then work out if it would save me time to purchase over doing it all myself from scratch. Given that it is a valuable proposition with that in mind, I think it has a long term potential.

    Since this is in a state where it can be handed over, if it did offer good value, I could see some great potential, as I would then own it, but get my team to actually execute the business. Why would I want or need to learn it?

    There used to be a duplicate review website that made money for many a marketers. If you type in any guru name that site would pull up from different vendors who bought into it. That was a business in a box by your definition though, it wasn't $2-3000 ,and, like someone who said. If a business actually works people will pay for it somewhere.

    YES, there IS a market! There always has been and will be. But HOW do you make something that can give you billions of possibilities and different products, etc....?

    Frankly, you seem to be describing what HAS been done, and the ftc forbids!
