One of the many reasons being a marketing consultant is such an easy home
business to start and make money with is because the best customers — the ones
who are worth a small fortune in fees and commissions — all but wear a sign saying
who they are.
Here’s what I mean by that:
There are a lot of ways to get an almost unlimited supply of fresh, hot leads who
want nothing more than to give you their money in exchange for helping them
market their business.
Some of these ways take time and others take a little bit of money.
But the best and cheapest way is to simply flip through the copy of the Yellow Pages
you have sitting in your own home.
Because, you see, when you see an ad — even if it’s as small as a quarter page — in
the Yellow pages, that tells you that you’ve got a business that’s spending a lot of
money on traditional
And since the VAST majority of Yellow Page ads are lucky to just break even,
chances are the ads these businesses are shelling out money for aren’t working so
And because they aren’t working so well…there’s also a very good chance the people
running those ads are frustrated and wishing their ads (which they spend a LOT of
money on) would be working better.
And as a marketing consultant, all you have to do is simply make the leads they do
get from those ads convert better — which in turn instantly increases their profits,
without spending one extra dime on advertising.
See how this works?
You don’t have to be a marketing genius to be a successful marketing consultant.
You don’t have to come up with complex and elaborate marketing and selling plans.
You don’t even have to have a lot of experience in most cases.
You only have to know enough to produce results.
And when you learn the basics — the raw fundamentals — of selling and marketing
(which can be learned quickly and cheaply by almost anyone — and right online in
many cases), you can walk into just about any business and multiply their profits.
I’ve seen it happen hundreds of times in my career as a marketing consultant and as
someone who teaches people how to be marketing consultants.
And you know what?
As long as you have some passion and the ability to talk with and care about other
people, this kind of fast success can happen to you, too.
