Clearly there are a lot of great ways to make money online. That’s no secret in this day and age. And as internet marketers, we have a distinct advantage in that department. But up until recent years those of us who were considered “internet marketing specialists” only made money online.
Then, some brilliant internet marketer (wish it was me) realized that they could make a great income by taking on clients in the “real world” while helping offline business owners achieve their dreams at the same time. It’s a win/win situation when you can make a lot of money for your own business while helping another business owner also become far more successful than ever before!
There are many very useful skills that you have acquired from running your own online business that you may take for granted but can be very profitable to a regular offline business owner. Therefore, you can very easily take these skills to brick-and-mortar businesses in your area and help them bring in more customers while also making a lot of money for yourself. Some of these skills include web design, digital marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), online advertising, social media marketing, writing, blogging, and much more.
It’s very likely that you, as an internet marketing specialist, have a very particular set of skills that the vast majority of people in this world don’t have, and are very useful to just about every business owner. You can offer these skills to the local businesses in your area to help them build their companies while earning a great income for yourself at the same time.
Your online marketing knowledge can be worth thousands or even millions of dollars in new revenue to the small business owners in your area over time. So, it is in their best interest to hire your expertise to directly help them or your consulting services to teach them how to do it themselves. Most companies these days are aware of the fact that they need digital marketing solutions in order to compete.
Getting clients can sometimes be a little bit tricky because they may not know that they need what you are offering, even though they almost always do! You just need to educate them on this fact. All you really need to do is walk into a local business and tell them what you can do for them and why they need you.
It may seem surprising but even nowadays there are still a ton of businesses that don’t have websites or an online presence of any kind. And the few who do almost never know anything about SEO, social media, PPC, reputation management, blogging, or other forms of digital marketing and online advertising. In fact, most business owners know very little about the internet as a whole. So, you can offer them many different types of services to actually make them more money that they wouldn’t or couldn’t do themselves.
Of course, the best way for you to take your internet business into the real world is to start with a plan and execute that plan with massive action. At first, find a few businesses in your area that could benefit the most from what you have to offer. Then, approach each business with an offer they can’t refuse. Always over-deliver on your promises and ask for referrals!
Honestly, that is really how easy it is to take your online business into the real (offline) world. You just need to figure out what skills you have that small local businesses need and then offer your services to them. If you can provide the solution to their needs then you are in like flynn.
Then, all you have to do is provide massive value to your new clients, help them be more successful in their own businesses, and you will have just created a very significant residual income stream for yourself for many years to come. Use what you have learned in the internet marketing world to now make money offline! BAMit!
