Most of the time when it comes to online making money techniques and ideas, we my not think of mixing both online marketing and offline marketing together. Mostly people just think of ways to make money online and stick to that. In this article I’m going to show you a great way to make $1000 per week from home with a mix of both online and offline.
When you start a business online your focus is mostly ways to make money strictly online. Nothing wrong with that. That’s the way I do most of my marketing. And its very profitable. However we as marketers forget that the old brick and mortar businesses can use our help as well.
One way to help offline businesses that need our help is to help them build a website presence. You’d be surprised at the amount of businesses out there that have no website to represent them. Now there are many that do of course. But those that don’t have to make you wonder why they don’t.
In todays day and age its almost imperative that a business needs to have a website. After all most business is being done either on or through the internet all the time now. And that will only increase as time goes by. This is where we come in at.
How To Help Offline Businesses And Get Paid Handsomely
Ok so lets get into this how to help brick and mortar businesses by doing outsourcing to make money online, $1000 per week to be exact.
First thing we need to do is understand how to get clients to be able to help them get an online presence. Best way to do this is to use of course the google search engine. Now let me tell you that this can be done from anywhere in the world. It can done with any type of business that you can think of. Either in your local area or in any country or state.
Now, for our example I’ll choose Electricians or businesses that do commercial electrical work. So you do a search in google for Electricians in a specific area or city or town. So lets say I do a search in Chicago, Ill. Google will show you several businesses in a list in Chicago. In that list you will be able to see if those businesses have a website or not.
You’re paying close attention to the ones that don’t have a website. In that listing it will give you their telephone number.
Call the business and ask to speak to the owner or the primary manager. When you talk to them tell them your name and or your company name if you’re using that. Tell them you’re a professional web developer and you build websites for businesses.
Explain to them that you noticed they didn’t have a website and that their competitors have a distinct advantage over them. And that they could increase their business exponentially by having a web presence. Tell them that you will be willing to build them a professional website for their business for normally $1500 dollars but if they take your offer while their on the phone with you that you will give them a discount of $500 off and do it for $1000.
This should get you the job most likely on the first call. If not then just move on to the next business you find in your google search and do the same thing.
Don’t worry if you’re not a website developer. You don’t need to be. Because we’re going to outsource the work for that. You are just being the middleman in this endeavor. I’ll get to that in a minute.
Now the next thing after you have the job from the prospective business is you need to have them email to you their specifications of how they want the website to look. Such as company logo, pictures, graphics, any product discounts they want to show and etc..
Once they email you this information, the next step is to get website hosting. I recommend Bluehost.com hosting. Because you’re going to build them a wordpress website. And Bluehost is great for this, but you can of course use any hosting company.
You can get the hosting at Bluehost for $3.95 per month. You’ll setup the account and pay for the first month. Don’t worry you’ll get all this back. Just make sure you keep record of the account login info because you’ll need this to give to your customer once the job is done.
Once you have the account started then you need to install the wordpress installation on the hosting account. It’s easy takes just 1 click. Here you also need to keep record of the wordpress admin and password for the backend of wordpress to give that to your customer as well after the work is completed.
Now that you have that much completed, its time to get the website created.
For this we will be outsourcing using Fiverr.com. Head over to fiverr and type in their search engine “Build A Website”. It will bring up quite a few of people who do website development. All you need to do is look for a developer for as cheap as you can find, one who has lots of reviews, and preferably a 5 star rating.
Once you’ve decided on who you want to do the job, you just hire that person to do the work. Giving them all the specifications that your customer gave to you. Remember to keep track of your expenses. Which this cost and your first month of hosting is all you will be spending out of pocket. (Like I said earlier, you’ll be getting all this back)
After your developer completes the website build to your customers specs. He will get in touch with you and tell you its ready to go. At this point you will need to test it yourself to make sure it meets you customers specs as best as possible. If it doesn’t meet what you expected you can always go back to the developer and tell them it needs some revisions. They usually allow for as much revision as you need to get it right. There’s no extra cost for this.
Once that is finished and your happy with it then its time to take it back to your customer.
Call your customer up and tell them that their website is ready to go. Have them load it up in their browser to see it. They will be happy for sure!
Step #6 Time To Get Paid
At this point you need to tell them that before you can turn over the hosting account information and the wordpress login information to them that will need to send you either a check for the full amount or send it to Paypal if you have an account with Paypal and prefer to be paid that way.
Remember to include your expenses on top of the charge of $1000.
Once you have the money in your possession you just email your customer the account info for both hosting and wordpress. At this point your finished. The job is done. It’s a win-win-win.
