When did 'Ten Super Coaches' Become 'Seventeen Super Coaches!?'
With your copy of the '10 Super Coaches ebook' you currently get a free expansion pack including another seven interviews!
Neil Gilbranch, United Kingdom
"Why reinvent the wheel when you can see how successful
people are already producing results you want? Don't hesitate, buy it
today. The '10 Super Coaches' ebook has given me the confidence and inner
strength I needed to build my business, I have been able to fine-tune
my fees, and I have offered sample sessions with success."
In this article I'll tell you the quickest way we've found to do it.
If you provide a service or get paid for hours or projects worked, there is a limit on how much you can make. But, if you bring passive income streams into the mix you aren't trapped by the hour.
I love logging in online and seeing the sales that came in overnight. And once every two weeks I get a nice healthy deposit into my bank account.
As an expert in your field, you could write and sell a report online. If you're not an expert - go interview one! Or create a paid regular ezine. How about an ebook? Would you like to give a speech and record it - selling it on CD and/or online? (See an example of how I did this at www.FirstFiftyClients.com).
The drawback of this approach is it takes quite a bit of time and energy to create the product. Plus you need to set up a merchant facility to take payment, handle delivery, refunds, marketing etc. I'm not saying don't ever do this - but it's not usually the best way to start in the online marketing game.
However - what if you found a great product you believed in? And what if - in this new internet age - you could get 20% - 80% commission for selling it? In some cases you could even be earning more than the creator!! And what if you didn't even handle sales or delivery?
In his book, Multiple Streams of Internet Income, Robert Allen says that "Affiliate programs are probably the fastest, easiest and most profitable ways to make money on the internet." Affiliate programs are joint ventures where you promote a product for a company and receive a commission. So it is win-win for everyone, and often very easy for the affiliate.
It's a very smart way to begin your online marketing efforts, because you can set up your 'joint venture' in minutes. Usually you just need a special link to add to your website, ezine or email signature - and your joint venture partner does the rest!
For example, our own SolutionBox affiliate Clare Evans recently chalked up $200 commission in just one night - from sending out one email!
Books, tapes and CD's are eventually great to get into, but it's unlikely anything will get you started faster, and trained faster, than selling someone else's products.
