Online Marketing in an Offline World
Selling email marketing to local businesses is a great way to create a residual income stream. More and more TrafficWave Affiliates are beginning to realize that there is a lot of money to be made right down the street from their house or apartment. Next time you’re driving through your own city, take a look around at all the mom and pop shops, restaurants, hotels, service shops, etc…
As you scan local advertisements, take note of all the local entertainers, bands, DJ’s, photographers, event planners, etc…
One thing they all have in common is a need to attract more clients. And YOU can get paid to show them how to use Email Marketing to get it done!
I recommend a few very inexpensive tools you can get very easily, such as:
1) Your own web site. You want to establish yourself as a credible professional. Having your own web site can go a long way toward getting that done. Even if you know nothing about setting up a web site, we make it easy to use WordPress to create a web site in just minutes. Visit http://www.ews2.com to register your new domain name and get your web site started in just minutes. Not only is having your own web site more professional looking to your clients, it’s much easier to put your own domain name on a business card than it is to use an affiliate web site.
2) Your own business cards. You can use a local print shop, Vista Print, etc… I recommend that you reference Email Marketing Specialist on your card, include your web site address, your phone number, and your email address.
From there, it’s a simple matter to walk in to your local businesses and ask to speak with the manager. I simply ask them, “Are you using email marketing to generate new prospects and create repeat business?”
Most of the time, they are not. So give them your card and show them how they can try it out absolutely free for 30 days. Invite them to your web site to learn more.
If they ARE using email marketing, ask them, “Are you happy with your current service provider?” Regardless of what they say, I ask, “Would you be interested in finding out how you can conduct unlimited email marketing for less than 60 cents a day?”.
Invite them to your web site to learn more and find out how they can set up a free 30 day trial.
Your web site can be very short and simple with a brief overview of our service and a link to your Affiliate site to set up their Free 30 Day Trial. This gives you a no pressure way of selling email marketing to local businesses.
It’s just that easy to build some of the most stable income you’ll ever find as a local small business owner is typically very serious about their success and will be eager to learn how to increase their revenues.
If you provide a little extra service such as setting up their messages, creating templates, etc… you can charge additional fees above and beyond what they are paying for their TrafficWave.net monthly subscription.
