EDIT: Forgot to mention, you need to use something called shortcode, as using regular phone numbers will get you in trouble... Well... I am new to the forum & have intro'd myself a few times, however I am not new to IM... I'm sharing a method I have used to generate a residual income & wanted to some of you... Due to the holiday's & limited time in my schedule I may not be able to answer questions. ====METHOD - Selling Etsy Sellers==== Ok, so etsy is mostly visited by women, who love to shop... People that sell on Etsy are a close knit of individuals so be careful on how you approach them or they may scream "spam". 1.) Find a txt msg-ing service (I have one if you need.) 2.) Contact SELLERS not buyers & engage in how much you like their store and the products they have. **important** spending time talking to them not just giving them a link. 3.) After a few exchanges back and fourth (I recommend trying to get your conversation off Etsy to prevent any problems.) You are going to show them how they can offer coupon codes (usually 10-40%) to their customers by signing up to receive text messages from their store. For example: text 90210 keyword ETSYSELLER and save 20% on your purchase today.... Now once they have their customers sign up for their discount, they can now market to them via text msg anytime and send them additional promo's to drive traffic back to their store. Sellers on etsy are trying to make money, so you are hitting them in pain spot and giving them a solution to their problem. What this does for you... Well on the initial sale of the product you get a flat XX%.. & then the best part, 20% residual for LIFE! & FYI from my experience they usually stay for 1.5 years, so this adds up to some good money. Cheers & hope this helps you all start a new year making money.... remember, be creative with your methods and give me a thanks if you appreciate this..
