Marketing a product or service online, especially in the “How To Make Money" niche is becoming increasingly difficult. Competition is tough and many potential customers have burned their fingers once too often by falling for scams.

Fact of the matter is that it is a lot more difficult to establish your credibility online than face to face. Many marketers are so focused on online marketing that they fail to see the enormous benefits of using their online marketing skills and knowledge to help offline businesses.

Let's face it, these days most offline businesses have a website, are thinking of getting one or at least not opposed to having an online presence. However, most small business owners have zero knowledge of building a website and do not have the time to learn.

If you can build a website or outsource it to a 3rd party you can earn a very decent living helping local businesses in your area.

Tip: There are many places where you can hire website designers for a very reasonable cost such as and

Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. If the local business already has a website, offer them a “special" free review. Do not criticize their website but offer some recommendations on how it can be improved.

2. If the local business does not have a website, explain to them the advantages of having an online presence and offer them a one stop solution.

Tip: Let them know that you will do everything required from A to Z and will maintain the website. Don't simply build and handover a website to a business owner. He does not know what to do with it and does not have to time work on it.

By following the above approach you can claim a once-off fee for setting up the website and charge a monthly fee to look after the website.

Note: If the business owner does not have a website host you should also offer to take care of hosting - There are many good reseller hosting options available on the net.

3. Some business owners may feel that they do not really need a website to attract new customers. Don't argue with them. Explain to them the advantages of building a database and how they can reach thousands of customers by simply sending one email to their list. This is a very valuable (and free) method of informing existing customers of any special deals or important announcements.

Tip: A good autoresponder service provider will allow you to set up unlimited mailing lists, one for each of your customers, from your own account without paying an additional monthly premium.

You will be providing local businesses with a very valuable service and can earn a very good living at the same time. Last, but not least, take action today!

To YOUR Success,
