How To Make Money Selling Other People’s Junk

Here is a nice little side business that can yield you some extra spending money. I saw an ad the other day that read: “Do you have unwanted items you’d like to sell on Ebay, but you don’t want the hassle of listing and shipping? We can do it for you and turn your unwanted items into cash.” Guaranteed there are plenty of people out there who would love to have you sell their stuff. You can either split the profits with them 50/50, or simply buy their items outright and sell them on Ebay. Either way, it’s a way you can turn quick profits while you’re building your online...

Got an Email List? How to Make $1,000 in One Hour

If you already have one or more email lists, and either a Skype or Facebook account, then this might be a way for you to make some quick cash. You need the ability to see when people are online, hence the need for Skype or Facebook. Before you do this, build a quick webpage where buyers can pay you. It should be a private page that search engines can’t index because you don’t want it to be found. The key is that your customers think time is limited – not that they can grab this offer whenever they get around to it. See who is online and send them a private message with your offer. Tell then you’re right in the middle of booking your promo emails for the next week or month, and that you have an opening for an advertising slot in your newsletter’s P.S. section. Let them know how many subscribers you have and the price for the slot: For example, $97 or $197, depending on the size of your list. Don’t be high pressure. Tell them if you don’t hear back from them, it’s all good, because you know you will sell out. If your list is especially targeted or especially responsive, let your prospects know this, too, and adjust your pricing accordingly. I know someone who does this routinely, and every time he does...

Is This Why You’re Not Making $10K/mo?

This is huge, yet few marketers even think about it until they’re months into their business and wondering why they’re not making the big money. Yet it’s pretty darn obvious to anyone else on the outside looking in at the business. Here’s what you need to ask yourself right now: “Is your business actually CAPABLE of making $10k per month?” And the advanced question: “Can your business be scaled up to $50k a month, or more?” Here’s what I mean: If your only product is a $7 ebook, odds are you are NOT going to crack $10k per month unless you sell the heck out of affiliate programs. To earn $10k a month, you need 1428 buyers each month purchasing that $7 ebook. Then there’s your traffic: Are you getting enough people to your sales page(s) each month to earn $10k per month? Even if you have high ticket items to sell, you still need people who can find and buy those items. If your basic structure isn’t in place to earn the kind of money you want to earn, then it won’t matter what your product is, how great your sales copy might be or how ingenious your sales funnel is. It has to be physically possible for you to make 5 figures in your business, or it simply won’t happen. Think about a car: If you want...

Case Study: How to Make $6,000 a Month in Simple Ad Sales

I can’t reveal the niche where I found this case study, but with a little tweaking this could work in any of the larger niche markets. And best of all, you get paid UP FRONT, before you even place the ads. Here’s how it works: I’ll call our case study entrepreneur Bob. Bob puts out an email newsletter for free. And it’s a really good one, too, with plenty of great information. He doesn’t actually write most of the info, though. He uses PLR and he gets permission to reprint articles and blogposts. His subscriber base is over 25,000 people. And because he puts out such great content, his open rates are high, which means he can offer paid advertising inside his newsletter. Bob’s content is presented as the main part of the newsletter, and then after the content he runs one ad per newsletter, which is a simple matter of copying and pasting the ads he receives from advertisers. And because it’s an email newsletter, he allows ads to be a full page, or even longer if it’s presented as an advertorial type of format. Because Bob only allows one ad per newsletter, he can charge $300 per ad. And get this: His newsletter goes out as often as he has paid ads, which tends to be 20-25 times per month. To keep readers engaged and opening his...

How to Make An Extra $196 Per Week With ONE Email

If you have a continuity program, then you’ll want to pay attention to this. No doubt you’re offering your continuity or membership program to your subscribers. But there is a certain segment of those subscribers who simply aren’t taking the bait. After repeated emails promoting your membership, they still haven’t joined. Here’s what you can do with these folks. After you’ve exhausted all means of getting them to sign up for your monthly program, make them this offer: They can get a FULL YEAR for just $97 (or whatever price you deem appropriate.) These are folks who weren’t going to join anyway, so everyone you get to join is a bonus $97 to you. I’ve seen other marketers do this, and it often results in an extra 2 3 sign ups per week. Simply write an email making the offer and insert it in your autoresponder sequence at the end of all your other emails asking them to jo in the membership. Put a time limit on it such as 24 hours so they have to make up their minds right away. It’s extra money you wouldn’t have made otherwise. Bonus: Approach other membership site owners and offer to show them how to make an extra $200 a week, if you can get a cut. I haven’t tried this, but I don’t see why some of them wouldn’t go...
