Information Marketing has come a long way since I first starting selling my “How To Make Money At Flea-Markets” manual back in 1999. (I’ve sure changed a lot too.)
I started small. One tiny ad in one mag, an 1800 free recorded message line, a simple sales letter and order coupon, an info-product; a PO Box, fax and mobile phone to take orders, and I was in business. Back then, I was still working as a labourer; taking orders on the mobile while up on top of a half-finished house, nail gun in hand, swinging off roof trusses.
NOTE: I knew a mobile number as an order number was a RED flag to my prospects, a warning that would have killed my sales. So customers rang a normal number which was diverted to my mobile. (Still used a PO Box though, which was a mistake and surely cost me orders.)
Anyway, the first order came through via fax; my wife Elita and I watching the fax come out and I’m poking Elita in the ribs, acting the Gala; she smiling shaking her head.
I still remember the guy’s name.
Anyway, the first order was a buzz and we were addicted. The Info-Marketing biz has that affect on people. You get addicted to creating products you’ve specifically designed for a certain market, then writing the sales letter and then getting the orders. You get addicted to the lifestyle. You get addicted to the freedom this strange old business gives you.
Even in today’s high-tech, split-second response world, I believe you can still start small and part-time. One simple ad in a targeted magazine, or one simple AdWords campaign and your business is born.
But there are things to watch out for; stuff you should know to maximise your success. (If I get enough feedback and comments on this I’ll continue sharing what I know.)
There is no business like the info-marketing business. What with the small investment needed to start, and the ability to start on a part-time basis, makes easy entry even on the tightest budgets.
That’s why I always encourage my Clients and Members to consider Info Marketing.
And looking back, there was one skill that ensured my success.
One skill that continues to ensure I never go hungry.
One skill I can teach you that almost guarantees you’ll thrive in the info-marketing arena.
