(Maybe you just want to jump right into The Offline Cash Formula?)
At this point in my life I can safely say that I’ve made more money doing business offline in the “real world” than doing business online. I’ve made most of my money by working for other people but here’s a real secret…
My highest profit has come from consulting while working offline.
I’ve made a ton of money by running my own businesses and selling my brainpower directly to my customers. When I’ve worked directly for companies I don’t make as much as I do when I directly consult. Yes, I make a lot of money, but nothing like my consulting. It’s really that simple. I know that the vast majority of internet marketers would say exactly the same thing.
Before I go on, let me make my points above extremely clear. First, most of the money I’ve made has been made offline. There’s a lot of money offline. Second, my highest profit margins offline have come from selling consulting services to my customers. That is, working for myself. The return on investment — hour for hour — is incredible.
What does this have to do with internet marketing?
Here’s the scoop. Most offline, real world businesses are clueless about internet marketing. This isn’t an attack. It’s an observation on business. These business are also used to paying big money for advertising, marketing services, internet work, and more.
But, there’s more. You see, these companies could easily dominate local markets simply by getting online the right way. Everything you know as an internet marketer is of very high value to local businesses. Better still, you can easily charge a lot of money to small and medium businesses because the value you can provide is so insane.
Think about all of this. Soak it all up. What I’m saying is that your online marketing skills are extremely value to small, local businesses. Therefore, you can pull down serious cash offline by selling and exploiting online marketing services.
I hope that you’re excited about this. I’m telling you point blank that you can make a killing by using the skills you already have. And, how about this. Even if YOU don’t have the skills, you know the topics and domains. You also know how to outsource the work and deliver real value. Again, this allows you to pull down thousands of dollars per month.
If you think I’m kidding, I just got an email from one our our students. She was able to easily “sell” (zero effort) some marketing services to 4 offline companies. She also sold them service, content and maintenance contracts. In total, she painlessly sold $6,000 worth of services. So also now makes $400 per month doing minor updates. I’ve estimated that she’s outsourcing about 90% of the work. Talk about making a killing, right?
Up until this point I wanted to get you excited about making cash offline. You can trust me when I say that it is possible to exploit your online marketing skills to generate a lot of business in the real world. It can be done. It is being done by a lot of internet marketers right now.
If you are interested in learning more about making money online by helping small local businesses then you’ll want to check out a 2 hour video we put together called The Offline Cash Formula. It also comes with a 96 page transcript so you can print it out and read everything as many times as you want.
I’m not going to hype The Offline Cash Formula. There’s no point. It’s for people who are serious about exploiting their skills and brainpower in the real world. It’s pretty obvious that it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Read more…
