One such business is the Security Products Business. This is the hottest growing business sector of all! People were always very security conscious, but after the terrorists struck, we are all extremely aware of our security, or lack thereof.

There are many ways to sell these products without expending large cash outlays. Of course, if you are in a good cash position, you can Import these items for an incredible profit potential. All of these items are available from suppliers in the good old USA. Some of them will Drop-Ship to your customer using a return label with your name on it.

You can sell these products door-to-door, flea markets, direct mail, classified ads, Websites, Space Ads,etc. First thing is to get your hand on a freshly published Security Products Directory. This should give you all of the contact information you need to get started in this very lucrative business.

How To Turn Any Info Product Business Into A Massive Empire

Let’s talk about 5 ways to boost the profits of your info product business.

Go Physical. The biggest way to make more money in an info product business and eventually crush your competition is by creating a physical product. This you can do by turning your software or info product into physical form. One benefit of creating a physical product is that you can charge more for the physical form of your product. For example, instead of charging $67 for an e-book you can now charge $147 for the complete program. Another benefit is that you can now pay your affiliates more commission which will create more enthusiasm within your affiliate network resulting in more sales, profits, and market domination in many instances.

Add a Membership Site. Consider adding some kind of recurring income with a web-based service by charging a monthly membership fee. This does not necessarily have to be an online membership site. It could be some sort of service that allows people to go online and keep track of their activities. It’s much easier to make income on a recurring basis as long as you keep your customers happy, rather than having to develop new courses or programs all the time

Increase Affiliate Offers. You can do this in two ways:

On The Front-End. You can offer other companies’ products in your sequential emails following an email mini-course. You will just keep adding more emails to your sequence, offering more and more products as time goes.

On The Back-End. After someone buys your product you’ve gained their trust. So if you tell them of related tools and resources, there’s a very good chance they will order.

Add An Up-sell. You can increase the overall value of a sale by adding an up-sell. For example you could have an up-sell on your e-book order page that offers a related product at a special discount. Typically you can do an up-sell of up to 50% of the original price, and anything higher than that should be used as a back-end product.

Add Back-End Products. After someone buys your lower-priced product you want to go back and offer them something else at a later time. Most back-end products are more expensive than the original product. There are many related products your customer would be interested in that you can offer them after the original sale.

Video Production Business Tips – The Two Best Days Of the Week for New Projects

In the 13+ years I’ve been running a video production business, I’ve always been surprised that Monday seems to be the most popular day for getting new project inquiries and Friday has always been the best day to close a deal.

Why is that? Here’s my theory.

I’ll start with Monday. Over the weekend, busy people (decision makers) subconsciously think about all the things they need to accomplish the following week. This is a source of stress for them. So, not wanting it to drag on until the following week, they initiate a lot of new projects or initiatives the minute they are back in the office on Monday morning.

You should be on the lookout for this. If you get an inquiry on Monday morning, don’t waste any time getting back to them or trying to set up a meeting. They are in “Get it done” mode on Monday mornings so don’t wait until the week starts to kick their butt to try and get the process moving. If I get a call or email on Monday, I try to make sure I can schedule a meeting either later that afternoon or first thing Tuesday morning.

This prospect is hot and I want to keep them in the game until we have a signed contract.

Speaking of contracts… after you meet with them Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning, make sure you get the proposal/quote back to them with lighting speed. Don’t wait until Wednesday or Thursday to send it back because at that point, the video project has moved from #1 priority to about #10 (or #100) due to all the other stuff they have to make sure gets done this week.

Fast forward to Friday. This is the day that these same decision makers want to make sure everything gets wrapped up so they don’t have to take any of this week’s baggage into the weekend and even worse… into next week.

I just got a call before writing this post from a client who said “Kris, I’m leaving for the weekend at noon and I want to get this video thing signed off on and ready to go. What do I need to do?” I replied by telling him to email a signed copy of the proposal to me and I’ll send him an invoice for the deposit payment. He said “Will do. Can you stop by the office today to grab the check? I may not be there but I’ll leave it at the front desk.”

“Hell. Yes.” That’s how I like to play this game people.

In other circumstances, it won’t be that cut and dry. You’ll have to work for it a bit. For instance, if a prospect who’s hot on a project starts emailing you questions early in the day on Friday, keep the conversation going by emailing back or picking up the phone to call.

The first email might come in at 10am on Friday morning. You’ll email back your answers to their questions and the next email from them might not come until 2pm. When you respond to that one, their response comes back around 4pm. Finally, every time you send an email they respond within minutes. As this starts to happen, you need to call your spouse or significant other and tell them that you might be a little late.

If your prospect is emailing you every few minutes late on a Friday afternoon, THEY WANT TO SIGN THE CONTRACT and they want to do it before they leave for the weekend. I don’t care if you have to stay at the office until 7pm. Do not leave until you get the contract… period!

So, Monday’s are when most of my projects opportunities start and Fridays are when most of them get signed off on.

Green Products Business Opportunity

Green products business opportunity options are popping up online at the speed of electricity. How do you know which program to choose and which ones to run and hide from?

You are about to discover a simple formula you can use to help you choose an option that you can feel confident about moving forward with.

First and foremost is to make sure you are searching for exactly what you want. A green products home business is the most popular term for those seeking to align themselves with a company that offers environmentally friendly products. If that truly is your desire then the most important thing for you to scrutinize is the products.

Not all products that claim to be eco friendly truly cut the mustard. Since there is no official regulatory authority you will need to scrutinize products yourself. A rule of thumb is to discover the manufacturing process, the distribution process and the effects on the users when using the products.

In addition what happens to the waste of the product once used? Is the bottle biodegradable? Can the waste be used as grey water that can be recycled? These are crucial to you determining if the products truly are green.

The next thing you should look for is the cost to get involved with the opportunity. In the case of a green products franchise the cost may be pretty high.

If you are considering a green products network marketing company then you may be looking at anywhere from $139.00-$499 on average. Keep in mind that in addition to getting involved with a company you will need to have some money for marketing the program as well. Don’t spend all of your budget on enrollment and initial products.

The third thing you should consider is the compensation plan. Make sure to look at how much money you will get paid for retail sales and if there is any compensation or leverage for referring others to the opportunity who purchase products.

Organic Business Opportunities will all sound great but when you boil it down to the most important elements you can save yourself your two most valuable assets, time and money! Hopefully these few tips will help you make the right choice as you continue your search to discover the best green business opportunity.
