You Haven’t Seen PLR Used Like THIS…

| December 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

I know a marketer who subscribes to a PLR membership. He gets good stuff, usually video courses that are quite extensive. When he finds a course he likes, he renames it and gets new graphics for it so it looks like it’s his.

So far so normal, right?

But this is where it gets good. Instead of just selling it like you would any other course, he offers it as a personal mentoring course that lasts for 30 or 45 days. And he sells it for $297 to $497, depending on the contents of the course and the duration he chooses for the course length.

Then he simply makes himself available via email and twice a week via Skype to answer any questions. Of course he makes sure he knows the topic well, but anyone who’s been marketing for any length of time will know the basics well enough to do this.

He also limits the number of people who can join to somewhere between 10 and 25, depending again on the course. This creates urgency, and it’s not uncommon for him to completely fill a class. But even if he only sold a couple of mentoring courses, he would still be plenty in profit since his monthly membership is only $49.

The real work is done by the student as she progresses through the course. He just answers questions. It’s a great deal for both him and the students, since they are learning by doing and they have someone to go to with questions. And he doesn’t put in much work to make the profit he gets.

If you’ve got a decent amount of Internet Marketing experience yourself, you might want to try this.

How to Get Other People to Pay for Your New Business

| December 28, 2015 | 0 Comments

Let’s say you want to start a new business, but you need some capital to do it. Maybe you want to start making apps or some other kind of software. Or you need software for your own social networking site, or whatever.

Here’s a way to get others to fund it for you.

As you are building your business, record everything. Every problem you solve, every step you take, every misstep you make – take notes of everything.

Offer these notes for sale to others who want to do the same thing you’re doing. For example, if you’re building apps then you’d sell your info to other people who want to make money with apps, too.

You might offer them a weekly update as you progress. Or bundle it all together and sell it when you’re done. It’s up to you, but frankly the idea of letting your customers watch you as you set up your new business and turn a profit can be pretty exciting for them and motivating for you. Plus, you’ll get paid up front.

Offer this insider info for a reasonable price, and remember to offer an appropriate upsell as well. The right upsell will more than double your profits. Use this money to fund your business, and you’ve basically started a business for free – not a bad deal at all.

How to Make an Immediate Lump Sum from Your Paid Membership

| December 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

Gotta love continuity, right? Where else can you sell something once and get paid more than once? And if you have your own membership site, it gets even better because you can also cash out a lump sum whenever you chose to. Here’s how:

Let’s say you’ve got 300 members paying you $27 a month, and you decide you would like a lump sum payment. Offer your members a special one time deal. They can pay for 6 months right now, and get an entire year of membership. That’s $162, saving them $162. Or you could make it $149, saving them even more.

If you get one out of three members to take your offer at $149, you just received $149 times 100, or $14,900. Not a bad pay day.
