Start Selling Shovels!
It’s no secret in the United States during the 1800s Gold Rush the people who got rich (and I mean filthy rich) were NOT the people digging for gold, it was the merchants selling the shovels and axes.
Right now, there are millions of smart people out of work and need income. They are looking for home-based businesses with low start-up costs.
And the people who ARE working, are looking to supplement their income because there’s no such thing as “job security” anymore. Even an extra $500 per month is life-changing for most people.
There’s massive opportunity to create programs, products and offer coaching to people looking to earn extra income online.
**IMPORTANT NOTICE/DISCLAIMER** If you are going to sell programs on how to make money online, it better be high quality and it better work! I’m talking about building a long-term business, not a scammy offer where you charge their card without their knowledge.
There are also big opportunities to teach skilled professionals (coaches, trainers, physicians, brokers, agents, etc.) how to get more traffic to their web sites (I’ll cover that more in a future issue).
Yes, fortunes will still be made in every niche market too (weight loss, gardening, etc.), but I think there’s massive opportunity in 2011 for smart entrepreneurs who can teach money-making skills.
Just be reading my blog and being a part of my Inner Circle, you know more about online marketing than 99% of the population. Seriously!
But if you are going into this world, then you must…
I recommend you go niche and avoid the general “make money online” niche. It’s too competitive and too general unless you have really deep pockets to advertise your programs.
Dig deep into niche markets. Here’s an example of going niches..
Internet Marketing => Paid Advertising => Pay Per Click => Facebook PPC
Online Marketing => Health Care Professionals => Doctors => Chiropractors
So get out there are start selling shovels!
Stay tuned for Part IV coming soon…
