There are 2 major steps for making money.
STEP 1 – Knowing What to Sell
STEP 2 – Knowing How to Sell It
Step 1 is the easiest.
Unfortunately, many people struggle with it.
What to sell is mainly about demand and supply
What to sell should never be a problem for you
There are a gazillion ideas out there
But for the purpose of this post, I categorized it into 4 types:
(a) Sell Digital Products (E.g. Software, Information Products etc)
(b) Sell Physical Products (Computers, Creams, Wristwatches, Phones, Baby clothes…Unlimited)
(c) Sell Affiliate Products (Digital or Physical as long as it pays well)
(d) Sell Real Estate
I won’t be saying anything else about those 4.
If you need more details about them, download a free copy of my book: “Where the Money Is & How to Get It”
It will explain them better
Instead what I want to talk about is the selling part
Many people don’t know how to sell and they are doing nothing about it.
If you are one of those people, please start learning how to sell
Of course, learning how to sell isn’t an easy task which is WHY many people keep dodging it.
Make a decision that you are going to learn it.
My decision to learn how to sell is the ONE skill that changed my life
Learning how to sell will ensure that you are never broke.
It is a skill that will help you even outside of making money
When you can sell, you will see that there is so much money out there
If you can sell, you can walk to any business owner right now and tell them you will bring them customers in exchange for a decent commission
No SERIOUS minded business owner will reject such an offer
You could go to a car dealer and make a deal with them to get a cut on each car you sell for them
Then take some of their cars to FB/Instagram and create a powerful campaign to sell them
OR If you are on Expertnaire, pick a product there and attempt to sell at least 20 copies within 30 days
This means there are unlimited choices for you out there
People are broke and keep getting broke because they won’t take that bold decision to learn how to sell
Effective selling starts with…
(1) Selling the right offer (product or service) that people will go crazy for.
When you are selling a product or offer that appeals to people, they will go bonkers for it and won’t mind the price in most cases
For instance, one of my coaching students just made his first N1m within a month
He saw a nice wristwatch in a guy’s shop here in Lagos
So, he took it online and launched a Facebook campaign to sell it for an extra profits
As at today, he has made over a million in sales selling just this wristwatch that people love
(2) When it comes to selling, you need to be able to create superb adverts to sell whatever you are promoting.
This is a high income skill that will pay you for the rest of your life.
You won’t regret learning it.
Start practicing it. Do it everyday.
Take one of the products in your house/office and write an advert to sell it.
If you want to take it further, you might even take someone’s product and create an advert for it
Then out the advert online and see if people will respond to it
That brings us to the next part of selling.
(3) Once you have written your advert, you need to find a way to effectively reach people who are most likely to buy what you are promoting
And that is what platforms like Facebook and Instagram help you to do.
With Facebook and Instagram, you can create your advert for a product you want to sell and show it to thousands or millions of people
And if your advert is within their TOS, many people will see it.
If you are my student and you have never attempted to run a single Facebook advert, see me shaking my head for you.
When are you going to turn yourself into a selling machine?
When are you going to stop worrying about money?
Give yourself a challenge.
Find a hot product and target at least 20 sales over the next 30 days
If you look at it, what is holding you back is the fact that you don’t know how to sell.
Start learning and start putting what you are learning into action
You will make mistakes but then you will learn and get better.
That is my word of advice for you this week.
May God help us all
