When it comes to making money online, most bloggers stick to the tried and true advertising model. They might add a few more revenue channels, but the most parts, their sites will make money by selling advertising. There is nothing wrong with sticking to the advertising model. It can be quite profitable. However, if you want to get into the really big money, then you have to create your own product. Here’s why.
It’s The Most Profitable Way To Make Money Online
Having your own product means there’s no wholesale or middle-man markup. You get to keep all the money. I have done very well promoting other people’s product but I’ve made the most by selling products that I control or have an interest in.
You Have Total Control
When you sell your own product, you have total control over it and can control its quality. You don’t have to worry about whether the company you’re promoting will deliver to your readers or whether they will even pay you.
This level of control will give you great peace of mind. You know that you’re delivering a quality product to your readers instead of some affiliate product that you may have not tried yourself.
It’s Easier To Sell Your Own Product
From my experience, it’s far easier to sell your own product than it is to market someone else’s. If you’ve build up a good relationship with your readers, they will trust you and will be receptive to any offer you send them. However, they will be far more receptive if the offer is one of your own products.
It Increases Your Brand Name
Being able to show your own product is a great brand building tool. My first product was an eBook and it help to separate me from all the other bloggers out there. Then I wrote a real book that you could buy at book stores or Amazon.com and that really help to elevate my brand.
When you have a something that the blogger next door doesn’t have, it gives you a leg up and makes you unique in a very crowded field.
The increased brand name has its own rewards. Not only are you more well-known but there’s an entire side income to be made from speaking engagement. Since publishing my book, Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul, I’ve received many invitations to speak at various conferences and trade shows. Not only does this increase my brand even more but it also means my conference trip is fully paid for.
How To Create And Sell Your Own Product
In the past, creating and selling your own product was extremely expensive. Everything had to be custom coded. Thanks to advancing technologies, selling your own product got a lot less expensive. However, there was still a huge technology barrier. There wasn’t an inexpensive one-stop solution that did everything for you. For example, with my WP Blog Videos product, I had to get WordPress, Optimized Press, WP Wishlist, Vimeo Pro, PayPal, Aweber, and Clickbank to all play nice together. It was a nightmare!
Fortunately, I have a found a much better solution. It’s call SiteSales, and it will completely change the way you do business on the Internet.
Create Your Own Product Selling Site without Any Tech Skills
SiteSales is a truly unique and robust business building CRM (customer Relationship Management) system that allows anyone to create, launch and maintain a complete sales-website portfolio without any technical skills.
The product competes with InfusionSoft and 1Shoppingcart but it is a very easy to use drag and drop style shopping cart that does everything from 1-click upsells to hosting all of the sales pages, thank you pages etc. It fully integrates with every auto responder on the market. It has full blow reports, graphs and statistics down to vistor value and customer lifetime value.
The great thing about SiteSales is the price. While InfusionSoft and 1Shoppingcart can cost you up to $499 a month, SiteSales cost only $99 a month. That in itself is an amazing deal, but I got an even better deal that will make it impossible for you to say no.
The SiteSales Webinar Special
If you were on the SiteSales webinar last week, then you received an opportunity to get SiteSales at HUGE discount. In addition, you also got the following bonuses.
What kicks SiteSales over the top is that it comes with five “DONE FOR YOU” business where all you have to do is add their PayPal email, and it builds the sites for you!
You will also go through a 6-week webinar series and sequentially released training material not only on the software but also business-models and case-studies on exactly how to leverage the system.
You won’t have to pay $99 a month for all this. In fact, you won’t have to make any monthly payments! Interested? Then watch the SiteSales webinar reply to learn about the most profitable way to make money online, and how to get SiteSales to work for you.
