As you (hopefully) previously discovered in parts one & two about how you might effectively go about using some proven marketing ideas, to create (either) some long term income opportunities or some type of mutually beneficial joint venture arrangement.
It’s all a matter of perspective. Granted, if your money concerns are truly pressing, no ones going to fault you for going for the immediate cash.
But there’s nothing unique about that, right?
But if you wanna stand out in the eyes of your coaches, customers and or clients, then you need to be willing to make or propose arrangements that stand out in the eyes (and hopefully) wallet of your potential audience.
In part three you’ll discover some more practical marketing ideas, that are far more conventional. And probably a lot easier for you to relate to.
These proven strategies might be easier and less convoluted for you.
Practical Marketing Ideas And Marketing Opportunities Are Literally Everywhere!
(Once You Develop The Right Marketing Mind Set!)
Recently on a skype call with my tech guru, while he was busily talking way over my head, trying to explain some problem with the code on my site. He casually asked “what” could his firm do to land more good paying clients?
Not being one for a loss of words, I (strongly) suggested his company might inexpensively test one of the following three extremely viable marketing options. I asked what was his firms main bread and butter product and or service? And he responded that building websites and or blogs, preferably WordPress blogs.
1.) So I suggested his firm find a company and or association that desperately needs (either) some type of ongoing techie help and or ongoing help with their state of the art WordPress blog.
And exchange building the association a state of the art WordPress website and or blog, plus ongoing tech support, in exchange for the association giving his firm a quarter page size display ad in their publication and or directory. And his firm will advertise a free monthly drawing where the grand prize winning company gets a free WordPress style website and or blog built by them, plus 25% off the ongoing monthly and or periodic tech maintenance/support cost.
But guess what? My techie’s firm starts building a semi qualified list of future potential prospects from the runner ups each month, do they not? Plus, they’ll give all the runners up (every month I might add) a time sensitive offer to take advantage of!
2.) Next, they’ll also offer the first ten runner ups each month, the chance to save an additional 15%, for a grand total of 40% off their price, provided the new customer does two things.
A.) Gives his firm a fabulous long term bank account filling video and or audio testimonial!
B.) Likes his firms Facebook fan page!
3.) Plus, every month after each month’s grand prize winner has been chosen, they’ll also give all the monthly runner ups, five time sensitive gift certificates, valued at X% off.
And every company that successfully gets all five time sensitive gift certificates redeemed within a certain time frame, they’ll get discount credit towards their ongoing tech support costs! I also told him, if his firm ever wanted (and or) needed any help whatsoever!
Be it writing the copy for the display ad or tweaking the offer etc. Yours truly would be more glad to do it for free and or for credit towards trouble shooting my blog!
But here’s the best part. How many other potential marketing consultants would be willing offer their services up front for free? Once his firm gets a chance to test out a few of these battlefield tested marketing concepts, which marketing consultant do you think they’ll gladly recommend from now on? You got that right!
