    Ok Here is one of my best methods to make money on line . Build a website for a service business it could be any business example plumbing I have a website

    BlockedSewer*com



    Which I have in google ad words to get the jobs coming in.



    Contact some plumbers in your local area and make shure they have all the equiptment to handle drain cleaning including sewer camers and pipe locaters.



    Now tell them you have extra work and if they are intrested in covering your extra jobs you will let them do them for 65% of what ever is made from the jobs, that means you will make 35% of the job just for getting the job.



    Now look at the big picture if they are doing drain cleaning when they come across a broken sewer pipe that starts to get into big money any where from $1200 to $10,000 for some of these jobs, so your 35% comission starts to add up really quick.



    Now you can do this with any service business that has big ticket sales I also do this same thing with Water Damage Restoration these are also very big ticket jobs that bring in some nice Cash.



    Again because the jobs are so much money its easy to find someone that will do the work for 65%. You can build construction websites for construction work these are supper big dollar jobs so on these you will have to drop your comissions down to about 10% to 15% but remember you are only taking the call and turning the customers info over to the companies that you are working with.



    Now for getting getting paid I would try to work with companies in your local area. My plumbers I work with pay me once a week and do a direct deposit in to my bank account. The water damage is different because of insurance billing sometimes its up to 3 months before I get my comissions. But they always send me a Check in the mail when they get paid. With the Construction work I get Paid when the company gets paid usally at the end of the job.



    So what are you wating for get going build some web sites get calls coming in to your phone and start making money.



    To sum it up. This is a nice way to make some income without working. All you do is answer phones get the customer information and call your contractors and they will call the customer right back and do all the work and all the billing!



    If you would like me to build you a website and set it up for adwords and get you contractors in your area to do the jobs so you can start making money I can do this. you can find my phone # at this blog post

    ok, so the premise here, is that the plumbers are ethical and are willing to give you cut of all the business? why would they be truthful and not only tell you that they closed the deal, but even tell you that what they booked was a $500 job rather than a $75 routine checkup?

    Good in theory, but that's about it.

    A plumber can buy leads from any services-related lead gen site for a flat $7-$20, so why would anyone believe they would cough up 35% for the same thing?

    Either way, this thread has cobwebs on it. *Sniff.

    So this won't work because of the cheap leads they can buy...

    There are ways around that and that would be called a contract. Also, you have the phone number of the customer. You always have to call the customer back to verify the plumbers did the job. You can tell the customer that you are sending them some percentage of the total expense back ($20 without saying it) as that's part of your service and to tell you the total and date service was done. That's easy. The problem is the cheap leads problem mentioned above.
