As you know, there is a lot of money to be made in working with offline businesses. If they don’t have a site you can build one for them. If they have a site but it’s not mobile friendly, you can build them a mobile site. If they’re not doing video, you can do that for them. If they’re not building a list, you can get that started for them and so forth. The possibilities are nearly endless, and there’s tons of support on how to do it.
But here’s the sticking point for most online marketers: They do not want to go out and talk to business owners.
So if you’re one of those who prefers to stay at your desk, then how can you cash in on offline marketing? Simple – hire a sales person. Pay that person a commission such as 50% of profits or a straight 25% off the top. This way you only pay when you make money.
And if you don’t want to be the one to provide the services, you can always outsource that as well.
This is a great side business for marketers. You’re still free to focus on your online business, diverting your attention to offline only when there is a sale. And it’s a great opportunity for the sales person, because they can pursue it in their spare time.
And if you’re outsourcing the work, you probably only need to spend a few hours per week to make this work.
