    I am simply going to offer websites to successfully running businesses for $200 / each. So my plan is to find 5 such businesses in a month and convince them to have a website.

    What I will do?

    1. Find my customers.
      I get to see many pamphlets of local businesses offering discounts with "@gmail" / "@yahoo.in" email id in the contact section. So I will gather such papers from my place and all neighbouring cities with the help of my friends situated there. These pamphlets provide me with all the contact information I will need.
    2. Contact them.
      I will contact them with the help of the information provided in the pamphlets,i.e. via letters.
    3. How will I contact?
      I will send them 2 letters. First consisting information about websites and their importance and my price will be $250.
      However, within a day or two, I will send them another telling them (personal touch) that they have got a $50 discount and a free domain and email id of the ending "@xyzindustries.com"
    I will find and send to 10 - 15 such people. SO 20 - 30 letters in total per month.




    • So once I get someone to start with, firstly I will ask for the information about their business in detail and make a wordpress site with standard pages and paste their information on it.
    • I will ask for half payment before the work starts and half after satisfaction(or refund).
    • I will be using Google Cloud as host and Namecheap for domain registration.
    • So simply I will make it with 10$ and sell for $200.

    My area is not yet developed,nor many people here into Internet Marketing or Web development(those who are in, have very very high prices). I have negligible competition here.

    I will use this thread to track my success, however I am too lazy and slow, so updates will be weekly or monthly!

    Thanks to Tayax and 7878(for their earlier posts about sending letters).

    Thanks for reading :cheerlead

    Good luck with your journey OP. Are you planning to promote online as well? Like facebook ads, PPC or just offline marketing?

    Good luck on your journey, mate :) Don't forget to include some freebie in the letters, people love that ;) Also, since you're kinda lazy like me, posting updates more frequently will keep you more motivated to reach your goal. So, keep your journey thread as updated as you can.

    Persevere with this, you'll come across a lot of potential customers who don't see the value in what you're offering, they don't want to change their methods or they claim they can't afford this service.

    Ensure you have a portfolio of sample sites for them to see and choose from, advise they can have additional pages / widgets etc at extra costs as an upsell.

    A mate of mine started offering this a couple of years ago in the summer holidays ( he is a teacher ) he got his first order, the client wanted all the fancy stuff adding and he made revision after revision after revision, then he asked me how much to charge for the site.
    He wanted to charge at £xx per hour yet he had given an estimate cost price meaning his revised price would have been over 10 times the cost. He ended up with them paying the estimated costing he had offered them.
    He could have earned more flipping burgers.

    Be specific as to what the price entails !

    Good luck.

    So you cold approach your potential customers?
    Best would be you talk to them in person, or at least call them before you send them a letter.

    Where are you from?

    Update:
    I will also offer to create a Wikipedia page and maintain it as far as the Website is being paid for. I am looking for more freebies like these to offer, before I start.

    Already you have taken a better decision. Okay, I believe that your plan is enough for making $1000 per month but for these, you have to do more tasks.
    Where is your update? please share with us.
