The internet marketing space is getting crowded. Out of the many ways people are making online, the most popular method is affiliate marketing.
In affiliate marketing you endorse or sell other people’s products in return for a commission.
Affiliate marketing does fairly well in the digital information space. The commissions are usually huge and very attractive.
More and more, I see most opportunities turning up with more people promoting Business In A box kind of opportunities.
This simply method that you acquire rights to sell a complete business where everything is already done for you.
The only thing you need to do is to follow a few set up steps to deploy the business and then simply excursion traffic to make some sales..
You can literally build an email list using this method.
Popular in this niche is Private Label Rights (P.L.R). They do come with the product completely done for you. The sales page is already pre-written for you. Some P.L.R creators already go further by providing email swipes for your email list building.
The landing page or opt-in page is already made for you.
For most people who try to market these kind of opportunity, the challenge lies in setting up the sales funnel so that it works as it is supposed to.
The set up may include setting up your PayPal checkout links if the payment is being made to you directly.
Others will prefer to set this up by JV Zoo for example so that they can use affiliate marketers to excursion loads of traffic to their offer.
Either way, most people find the setting up challenging enough.
If your budget allows, you can hire the sets of professionals to set this up on your domain.
Otherwise it is possible to follow instructions and set it up yourself.
Changing links on the sales page is another challenge for most people. If you get this wrong you may be losing a lot of traffic.
It helps if you have basic HTML knowledge so that the time of action becomes much more easier.
Most of these opportunities also come with up-sells and down-sells. This method there is a lot of moving parts that have to be properly set up so that your funnel works correctly.
My first experience was with P.L.R products in the make money online niche. One of the challenges I faced was linking up the sales pages in the order they work as they were supposed to..
I would get mixed up and confused at the end. When I thought I finished setting up and were testing the pages, I would see lots of mistakes that I did not know how to correct.
My budget was so little that I could provide the sets of others to have this set up.
So I had to do some more research online and already bought a product that had instructional videos on how to properly set up all the pages, auto-responder and loading emails.
Then finally I was able to easily set up my PayPal links and all the other pages but it did take me a great deal of time and frustration.
Now the question that’s more important to look at is if these businesses in a box really work.
My short answer is they do?
But first, you need to know if this is a niche you are able to easily find targeted traffic. If not then you need to do some more niche research so that your efforts are not wasted.
Once you are past the set up stage, the only thing that’s left for you is to excursion traffic. This can be paid or free traffic.
Depending on the kind of your opportunity the Return on Investment can be huge.
If you want to make more with this kind of opportunity, you have to look at how much it pays.
I typically prefer such types of opportunities when they include recurring income.
I am currently working on one that has potential for recurring profits and pays at different levels.
If you are aware of 2nd Tier opportunities, you can make already more from the sales of your down line in your network.
My advice to you is that you find an opportunity where your costs are easily recouped when you sell at the minimum 2 licences to others.
Any proceeds you get should be channeled into more traffic acquisition. Paid traffic is the fastest way of getting your offer seen by many eyeballs.
You should also be building your mailing list while selling at the same time.
The meaningful is to find products that are in an everlasting niche and in hot need.
A good example of an everlasting niche is hosting and site builders. Everyone who is online to make money requires a website and those websites require hosting.
In a niche like this for example, your product should fully meet all the 7 laws of a profitable and sustainable business.
