I want to share with you what I believe is the most overlooked, EVERGREEN opportunity to earn amazing money online that only a fraction of a fraction of online entrepreneurs ever consider.
Investing in domains. But not necessarily ANY domains… but buying, improving and proactively positioning LOCAL domains in your current community, for sale, lease or rent.
Said in simple English?
Proactively registering domains local to you in YOUR IDEAL NICHE – and then targeting and marketing those domains back to the very professionals who you know need them.
Your ideal audience?
People with BAD websites – or no websites – or OLD websites or UGLY websites are all ideal candidates for an INSTANT upgrade you can offer with what you’ve already built.
The truth is, if there is a perpetually EASIER way to turn a $10 dollar domain investment into an easy 4 figure profit anywhere, on a pretty routine basis, I don’t know what it is.
You can create hyper local authority sites – everything from Buddypress communities – listing and business Directories and much more… all using the perceived expertise and experience that these sites offer folks who can’t do what we can.
The opportunity to partner with us in a whole host of unique, innovative and mutually beneficial ways can
Remember – we are NOT talking about weeks or months of work here to create REAL assets that have real value, when presented to the right audience.
Lets look at a more concrete example:
You can have a local domain registered -Install a premium blogConfigure a newsletter for email automation and list building,Curate some contentBuild a few linsAnd have a GOOD looking local site up and ready in about the same time it took the Philadelphia Eagles to put up 50+ points on the Bears last night. (which, if you weren’t watching the game… is just short of 3.5 hours:-)
You can literally GIVE, or rent, or lease that site to a person in that very field, in your own community for NOTHING down, offering to let them have it, or use it… for zero up front cost.
You can of course, also tell them that in return for the brand new ASSET you’re offering them, I simply want a modest $200 a month for very basic SEO, hosting, content updates once per week, and/or to manage the email sequence you wrote in an hour to go out to folks who stop by and sign up… which of course, will recommend their local business.
That is a DIRT cheap investment for them on a continuity service they really DO need (monthly maintenance and web updates and/or anything else you want to offer) + plus they get a “free” site with a great domain name and a premium framework all ready to rock and roll without mess, stress, muss or fuss… and YOU get a $2400 contract.
Or you could do it for $400 a month and $500 down.
Or give the whole thing away for 10 local referrals in a high value niche that you really DO have your eye on that you KNOW that business has an “in” with
Or – you can do just about any other powerful permutation of this process – and offer anything YOU want that makes sense.
Does it always work exactly like that? Of course not – sometimes BETTER and sometimes you’ll end up with a site that you literally can’t “give away” for a month or two or even on occasion… depending on where you live, longer.
The first significant sale I ever made (2K) online was using this exact method… and for a lot MORE money upfront… and a lot LESS of an idea of what I was even doing.
I was totally clueless, other than intuitively understanding that a domain name – in a big city – in a desirable profession where people were paying BIG money for leads (cosmetic dentistry) was WORTH something, to someone working in that field who didn’t have my skills. (which at the time, weren’t all that skillful..:-)
I just knew, like all great ideas that are born from a little bit of INSPIRATION and a whole bunch more DESPERATION, if I didn’t sell something soon… I may have to go out and get a job that didn’t allow me to wear boxer shorts to the conference room table while chomping on a box of Captain Crunch for breakfast.
There are MANY, many unique, innovative and fun ways to do this… many of which are obvious – and others, not so much… but easy to learn, but this is a GREAT place to been… no gimmicks, no goofiness and no gurus required!
