A Sweet Little Side Business You Can Run Part Time
This won’t make you rich, but it can pay the bills.
Basically, you’re going to hire two outsourcers and then sell the websites they build for you. This has been done by at least one marketer that I know personally, and I’m sure many others have found similar success with this business model.
Here are the details:
Hire two outsourcers, possibly from the Philippines or anywhere you can get excellent full time help for about $500 each per month.
One outsourcer should be versed in all phases of website building and PhotoShop. Things they will need to do: Install WordPress sites, install plugins, install autoresponder forms, use Photoshop to create website graphics as needed, etc.
The second outsourcer is a good writer, preferably a VERY good writer, able to research and write about most any topic.
This is your team.
One thing to know – work expands to fill the time allotted. So if you give your team two weeks to build a site, that’s how long it will take. Instead, see if they can do it in 2 days. For what you want done, it should only take 2 days. In fact, for the website builder it should only take one day, and two days for the writing.
Now then, the first site your team is going to build will be for you. It should be an authority blog, containing several posts and an embedded YouTube video or two.
You choose the domain name, let them know what you’re looking for, then let them sort out everything else.
This is going to be your example website. Of course, you can continue to build this site out over time, making it a true authority site. And you can use the outsourcers to do this for you. But first and foremost, you want to treat it as your example website.
Now you launch an offer to build authority websites for other people in the niches of their choosing. You can start by notifying your list of your new service, place an ad on Warrior and branch out to Facebook after that.
Charge whatever you like – $300 is a good price but it’s up to you.
The website will be a unique authority blog in whatever niche they choose, with perhaps 5 posts already written, all the plugins in place, basic SEO, a domain of its own… you get the idea.
You’re paying your team $1000 a month, so you need to make 4 sales to be in profit.
But realistically your team can build 10 sites a month, spending 2 days on each site and working 5 days a week.
10 sales at $300 is $3,000, minus the $1,000 you pay your team leaves you with a $2,000 profit.
Of course, you can charge more, offer different packages and so forth.
For example, your deluxe package might contain 15 posts and cost $700, depending on how good your team is and how well you do at selling the sites.
If you find your team has downtime between orders, you can have them create a product for you, or build sites which you then sell premade.
There is some work in getting the sales and communicating the desires of the client to your workers. But it shouldn’t take you more than an hour a day to accomplish this.
And once your other ventures are making enough money that you don’t want to be bothered with this endeavor anymore, you can always sell it as a turnkey business.
