    hi

    I have an idea of making a website and rent it out to a local business. My trouble is making the deal with the offline client (lack of confidence and sales experience I guess). Was looking into OMG Machines, but they sales page is full of fantastic testimonials of people renting out websites. But the details of what I get when I pay a few hundred dollars to join is thin and confusing (I read the sales page a few times and didn't see what I would get). So I was hoping I could get my local website up and running (rented out to local business) without using OMG

    The idea is to choose a local niche which has high search volume and expensive adwords, so I make a site make it rank on google and then rent it out to them, the offline business pay lets say 30% of what they should have paid to adwords each month...

    how to contact the local business and have the deal made?

    It will be a lot easier if you actually have a website generating leads, otherwise you're basically selling a pipe dream.

    You can get their email contacts and contact them. Try to contact all those advertising on adwords.

    Tip:: OMG is total shit, don't buy it.

    Loginname,

    Andrew has a good point, you should have the product looking attractive before you try and sell it. Make sure you have something worth while and you may be more confident in selling it to someone. Besides that, you just have to outline why it will be beneficial to someone and just call them or email them. You will eventually have to talk to someone but if sending an email first helps, do that.

    Here are some sales tips. Maybe they will get you going,

    Direct mail followed up by a phone call. Go read Jay Abraham's "Getting Everything You Can Out of Everything You've Got." Great book for marketing on a budget. Regarding selling, stop looking at it as selling. When you start having something of value other people need desperately, you stop selling and start becoming a provider, adviser and friend. No reason to be ashamed about selling, you just have to shift your paradigm.

    Deliver the leads 1st. Then make the pitch. If they don't pay, turn off the leads. Then give them a 2nd chance to pay. If no, then move on. Your best prospects are going to be the victims of yp.com's "SEO".
