Sell Stuff Online – –
If you can sell your products or services offline, you can probably sell some online. I have been doing speaking events for groups of entrepreneurs for years and many of them try to share the lessons they learn at my events with their employees. Now that I sell DVD recordings of my speaking events online, they can do this much more easily. With a simple set-up through my website, companies in 15 countries have purchased and begun using my DVDs. It has been a great success both for me and the companies that find sharing these lessons with their employees useful. It also allows me to make money while I sleep. Brilliant!
If you’re going to sell your services online, start with a website. Unless you dabble in web design, the simpler the interface, the better—that way, you don’t have to update it that often to maintain a fresh look. Instead of loading your site with useless content, figure out what you want your site to do for you, and only provide content for those areas. Got it? All I want people to do when they get there is either book me for speaking, hire me for coaching, or buy my DVDs. That’s it. Make it easy for people to figure out how to do the things you want them to do when they get to your site, and leave it at that. You don’t need anything fancy, just the facts.
