Ok, This morning I woke up and thought; "right, my parents have just got divorced, I miss my old cat, and xmas is coming up...". So, I started think HOW I can make a decent amount of money very quickly. I wanted something that is almost instant, worth my time, will make AT LEAST $1k a week. So, I had a good think about it, put some Grindcore and Rap-metal on very loud and it came to me! Private blog networks!! This is something everyone is after these days, and people are paying good money for them right now, even in this forum. So I went about researching how to make, build manage all this type of stuff. So 1 hour later, went over to Google and did some domain research, found a nice bunch of domains, good PR and so on. Bought them, installed them into my management program, put a nice custom theme on, did some other customization. And BAM DONE! 3 hours into my idea I have a tasty Private network! Now it's time to sell them!!! Now, I have great offline contacts, and this is where I will go. I will use direct mail (a method I use all the time to get new clients for my web design services and other SEO services). Simply put together a sales letter and send it off to all my ususal clients, and my nice CSV of prospective clients. After this I will wait for the emails/calls to come in, I will have all my sales patter sorted, then it's time to rake in all the clients. Simple as that. So let's recap: What I needed to set up: 20 domains: £90 5 C class IP hosting: £15 a month 1 Management subscription: £35 month ( if anyone has a free alternative PLEASE TELL ME!! ) Lots of paper Lots of ink Lots of stamps Ok, so now I need to sort my pricing. A tactic I use (and I bet many of you use) is think of a price that is worth it for myself, and make that the "double discounted" price. So for example: I will sell this service for £10 a month or £100 a year. So I will SAY.. WAS £30 a month, now £25.. Xmas OFFER: £20!! First 10 customers get 50% off EVERYHING!! £10 a month. People love it!! One other thing I will be saying is LIMITED to 50 places! (which I will easily be able to sell within 3 weeks) So overall: I spent 4 hours thinking, planning, action and now I am ready to make my bank balance bigger! I will be looking at AT LEAST £5000 in my bank by the 25th, and will be having a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! This method (if you can call it that), should also bring in lot's of residual monthly income. Plus if this goes well, I shall be making this -BIG-!
