Work Home Stuffing Envelopes

 

So I will show you 10 simple steps to work home stuffing envelopes.  Many of the methods here I learned from Dan Kennedy and other authorities.

CHOOSE YOUR PROGRAM CAREFULLY

1. First you will CAREFULLY choose a mail order program that offers a dealership. This is twist #1. Be sure that your commission can be $80 to $100 or more.

Most stuffing envelopes programs make you pay for the envelopes, printing and postage. If you are going to pay for those three things anyway, you should choose a slightly different kind of program, You want one that pays a high commission like I mentioned before.

 

GET QUALIFIED TO SELL

2. Next BUY the program with the dealership. It should offer at least 50% commission. It could be as high as 70% and more.

Now you are qualified to sell the program you bought. Make sure it is of good quality. That is good quality of printing and the literature etc. No faintly copied programs will do for your purposes. You want to make money right?

CHOOSE YOUR MAILING LIST CAREFULLY

3. The mailing list is the most important part of the equation for making money. I have tried a few different mailing lists in my time observing and trying mail order programs. .

A good list is composed of buyers only. They have all bought a program similar to what you are selling. This is another important Twist. That is the second twist. Don’t let someone you don’t know choose the list for you. I will help you chose from a few different good sources. I have used all of these and I recommend them.

He has a Gol;d List that is $99 for 300 leads. The quality is there.

CHOOSE A GOOD PRINTER

4. Choose a high quality printer. Do not do it yourself. TWIST #3 is very important.. However, you are not going to print 1,000 copies like I did for one program. That ties up too much money in printing.. I paid for 1,000 small booklets. I had no chance of selling all of hem the way I was promoting. SAVE YOUR MONEY for only the bare necessities. You only need enough to TEST your product, your offer, and the mailing list. That couild be as few as 100. Right now I am going to test a mailing by mailing only 100 envelopes.

I am having 100 photocopies (TWIST #4) made for each of several pages (6 or 7) right now. This cuts my costs way down from trying to print 500 copies for each of 7 different pages.. My costs are slashed to about 20%to $0 of what they would be doing 3,500 pages of printing. Using mail order printers can save you about 50% on your costs. I am using a local printer.

You want to get as much value as you can in each envelope for under one ounce. Postage costs the same whether you have one sheet or four sheets in each envelope. So fill it up if you can afford the copying cost.

Copy back to back on colored paper.

TEST FIRST

5. Test 100 to 200 envelopes to start with. Do NOT do any mass mailings. Some programs want you to mail a minimum of 1000 to 3,000. Do NOT do this. It could lead to disaster. That is why you want to test small at first.

Testing is one of the secrets to great success in mailing and stuffing envelopes. Test everything. Then test some more. You can drop the things that don’t work. You can do more of the things that DO work. That way you are getting better and better.

Everything is just an experiment.

 

ADD A BONUS

6. It is important to add something that nobody else has who is mailing the same thing. You cam write your own like I do. You can also find reports on the internet that you can inexpensively get to give to your readers..

You do this in order to give people a reason to buy from you rather than the other guy or gal.

 

ADD A PERSONAL NOTE

7. Adding a personal note makes you feel like a real person and not a robot or a fictional person. Tell a little about yourself like your name and occupation. You can also say why what you are offering is of benefit to the reader. It will help them make money or whatever.

 

HAND ADDRESS YOUR ENVELOPES

8. You should hand address your envelopes if this is your first mailing. After you have made a sale to the customer ,you can use mailing labels. But the first time you are looking for the letter from grandma look.

 

USE FIRST CLASS STAMPS

9. It is a good idea to use first class stamps. You are going for the letter from grandma look. Besides bulk rate mail does not always get delivered even. It is often slower even if it does get delivered.

 

FOLD, STUFF AND STAMP YOUR ENVELOPES

10. You need to fold your letters or flyers in thirds. That way they fit well into a business size envelope. Remember to put the first class stamps onto your envelopes. You can use little address labels for your return address.

 

PUT YOUR ENVELOPES IN THE MAIL

Now it is time to put your letters in the mail This is the time you have been waiting for. You will have to wait a few days to get your responses. It could thirty days before you receive all of the orders.

This is the fun part. Opening the envelopes to pull out cash, checks, and money orders. It is like Christmas every day. Wow!

It is time to get the reward for all uour hard work. It is not that hard. It is not physical labor like a migrant worker does in the fields.

 

Good luck to you. Enjoy the adventure and make money working at home stuffing envekopes.

Quest for Mail Order Success With WTM

!-- Global Site Tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=GA_TRACKING_ID"></script>
<script>
  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
  gtag('js', new Date());

  gtag('config', 'UA-107712796-1');
</script>

 

 

 

 

This is my quest to find legitimate mail order business opportunities.

I am going to tell you about my adventures in mail order with WTM Publication’s postcards. I ordered the program on Friday July 13.  I received the package of materials on Saturday July 21. That is a very prompt response. It made me feel good about doing business with them.

I thought about it many times but never did anything about it until now. I may have seen the postcard for the “Profit Max Formula” 5 times in the last five years. This shows that not everyone will respond the first time they see a certain postcard. Keep that in mind.

Why Did I Choose WTM?

I chose WTM because they have very good-looking postcards. These attract attention. Attracting attention leads to attracting sales.

Why Did I Choose the Profit Max Formula?

I chose the Profit Max Formula because I believe it has the potential to make the most money. You receive $500 for every sale. This makes the profit potential very high. At a 1% response rate, you could bring in $2500 for every 500 postcards mailed. This is not guaranteed of course.

 

A Simple Plan

You can do this. Anyone can mail postcards. Postcards also have a high response rate because there is no envelope to open. The person receiving the card can read it immediately. They can decide to read further very easlily.

7 Mistakes to Avoid With Mail Order Programs

1. The worst mistake you can make is to not do anything with it. I have done this myself several times. If you don’t try you will never know what could happen. Don’t live with regrets.

One way to reduce the chances of not doing anything is to set a clear, specific goal. Make sure it has a deadline. You could say I will work one hour a day mailing postcards so I can make $1,000 a month by August 1, 2019.. You might say that is not very much, but if you do it every month for 20 years, you could put $240,000 in your pocket.

Also I forgot to say that you should write down your goal. Put it where you can see it every day. This will be a reminder of your goal and will help keep you moving toward it.

2. Starting but stopping too soon. This is another mistake I have made. In the 1970s I had a very good business going with classified ads. But for some reason I don.t know I stopped. It was one of the worst mistakes of my life. I believe it cost me at least $50,000 over the next 10 years. It could have been much more. It could have cost me $100,000 or more.

So my advice is don’t stop when you are on the verge of major success.

3. This mistake can be very costly also. Give yourself at least one full year. Not giving yourself time means you can;t benefit from your experience and knowledge you have gained. Even if you make a mistake you will gain some valuable knowledge from that experience. You know something you did not know before. You are smarter than you thought.

So set your deadline for your goal at one year from your start.

4. Another mistake is to forget the numbers.  Your costs will go down the longer you mail. At first you should go slow. Start with only 500. But later after you have more experience and success you can print in larger quantities and your printing costs will go down. Also there is the fact that you only pay the intial costs once. You do not have to pay every month.

So remember as your experience goes up your costs will go down. These are two very good trends. They will help you succeed.

5. The fifth mistake is to go too fast and try to get rich quick. You need to test carefully in the begining. You need to test your mailing list. Your reponses could vary a lot from list to list. So test carefyully until you find the golden list. The one that makes good money for you. Don’t mail 2000 postcards to start. Mail only 500. But don’t stop until you strike gold.

6. The sixth mistake is to order any  old list.  You need to start with a hot line list. That is a list of recent buyers of a program similar to yours. It this list does not work for you, then the rest of ther list will not work either.

So start with the very best list you can find–a recent buyers list.

7. The last mistake is to not look for ways to increase your response rate. This program for example has a stamp program that could be mailied with it. It would have to go into an envelope of course. But combining the two programs could  increase response to the original postcard.. It is something worth trying.

I plan to update this report every month. So please check back to see what is new with me and this program.

Keyword research is very important for getting more traffic to your website. One of the best tools for this is jaaxy. No it is the best for sure.

What is jaaxy?

Jaaxy is a powerful keyword reasearch tool. It is more complete and more efficient than any other out there. At the end of this post I will give you a chance to try it for free. Sounds good right?

Type in a keyword

Type in a keyword that you or others might use to make a search. This could be anything that you are interested in.

Next  click on “search”.

Average monthly searches

This is the number in the first column. This number should be as high as possible. That is as high as possible without much competition. More on that in a few minutes.

Ttraffic

This number is to the right of the number above. This is the number you can expect if you on the top of the first page.

QSR competition number

Next is the competition number. This number should be less than 300. If it is more the competition is too high for this keyword.

KQI

Next is the keyword quotiient indicator. This tells you whether your keyword is great, normal, or poor. Green is great, yellow is normal and poor is red.

SEO

Tthis is a number from 1 to 100. The higher the number the better. You will know you have struck gold if the number is in the high 80’s or in the 90’s or 100.

Try other keywords

Try a few other keywords. Since this is a numbers game, the more keywords you try the better your chance of getting a real goldmine. That is a keyword with high traffic but with low competion. Of course the SEO number will be high also.

List or Save Keywords

Now you are ready to list and/or save your keywords that are the best according to their traffic and competition. Save them now so you don’t have trouble remembering them later.

Try More Keywords

Rremember the more keywords you try rhe more “gold” you will find. So keep on going.

Choose 3 Favorites

Choose 3 favorites from your lists. These will be your “prime” keywords. These are the ones you will likely use in your post when you write them.

Write a Post

Now you can write a post and put one of your favorite keywords into your title. Write it so it makes sense and flows naturally.

Also use one or two of your keywords in the first paragraph.

Now put your favorite keywords into the last paragraph as part of a summary or conclusion.

Are You Ready to Try it?

Here is your chance to try jaaxy for yourself.

Blog Writing For Money

You can blog your way to an author platform before your book is done. I found an article in Writer’s Digest called “Alpha-Blog Soup”  It tells why you should consider blogging if you want to write a book. The advantage of blogging is that you will alredady have readership before you finish your book.  This is HUGE.  Agents and publishers love when you have a readership already. Blogging is for non-fiction and fiction writers.

ABCs of Blogging

First you need a solid base to start.  Most newbies (that included me) put out lots of content without thinking about their audience or their brand. This causes them to spin their wheels.

First You Need Your Audience

You want to create blog psts now. But if you don’t know who your audience is you will be wasting your time.  You need to know exactly who you are writing for.

1. CHOOSE A COMPETITIVE TITLE

First thing you nedd to do is to find a competitive title to the one you want to wrtite. This should be aimed at the same people you want to write for. Often people pick too big and general an audience like all Harry Potter fans or “women 18-74”. Instead ask yourself why the people you are targeting would be interested in reading your blog.. Ask yourself  what themes come across in my writing? What emotions do oes my writing bring out. What reasons would your audience want to read my writing? Figuring out why will help you understand who you are writing for.

2. CHECK THE REVIEWS

You can now check the reviews of the “comp” title you have chosen. Pick one and look it up on Amazon or Goodreads.

Read the reviews of the title you have chosen.  Pick the 3 and 4 star reviews. 5 star reviews are too glowing.  1 and 2 star reviews have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. The ones in the middle will help you figure out who  your audience is  Pick a few reviews and look at them closely like you were in a lit class in college. Look for phrases that catch youe attention.

3. LOOK AT THE REVIEWERS.

Click on the reviwers name and it will take you to their profile.  There is a wealth of information there. You will find demographic and psychographic information that will be a gold mine of insights. Look at their biography.  How do they talk about themselves as a reader, reviwer and as a person? What kinds of words and phrases do they use to describe themselves and the type of books they love? You may have to read between the lines a little to see what is there.

.

4. SELECT ANOTHER COMP TITLE

Look at other books reviewed by the same reviewer. That will lead you to other similar books. If the reviewer is a dead end you can go back to the original title . Look for the “cusomers who bought this also bought” phrase. This will lead you to other titles. You can follow up with the same type of research you have just. done. Continue collecting information about people who love books similar to yours .

5. START USING WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED

It is easy to get sucked into the reasearch. You will know it it is time to stop when the same answers keep coming up. The magic number is probably seven or less.   So don’t keep going endlessly.

I am going to stop here and coninue with branding and content and developing your following in another post.

This is the best information I have seen on how to determine your audience. It is a bit of a process but it will save time in the end. You won’t be writing a bunch of unrelated posts.

Please comment on this post if you have a question or a comment. I will answer as soon as possible.

How to Write A Persuasive Letter

Some basic information can help you write a sales letter that makes money. You need a sales letter to follow up on your classified ads. You can use this information to write a good email also. Most of the princples are the same.

I have written at least four sales letters. They all made money.  I wrote down the contents of many successful letters to help get the the right ingredients into my brain.  This is good training for learning how to write successful sales letters.

We will cover the importance of headlines, and where to find headline models, The first parapraph is an important lead in to  the meat of your sales letter.  Sub headlines are also important to make your letter easy to read. You need a list of all the benefits of what you are offering. The difference between a benefit and a feature is significannt .

 

Headlines Attract Attention

Headlines attract the readers attention.  You only have less than 10 seconds to attract attention. If you don’t do it right away the reader will move on to something else. There is nothing more important than the headline.

 

Make a Big Promise

One way to get attention is to make a BIG PROMISE. Make money could be one type of promise. Lose weight could be another type of promise. Peolpe are always looking for ways to to do these two things. There are many other promises too.

Make a Specific Promise

A specific money making promise is “Make $2000 a month in 5 hours a week” Or on losing weight you could say “lose 10 pounds in the first 10 days”.

Tell a Story

Tell a story about how the great benefits came about. What did you do and what were the results?  I have only tried this one time, but the results were very good. People love to hear  stories from the time they are children. they remember stories better than a list of statistics for example.

One example of story telling was done for a letter about the Wall Street Journal. The story was about two men with similar backgrounds. One read the Wall Street Journal and the other did not read it. The one who read the Journal was much more successful than the one who did not read it. It was a very dramatic contrast.

 

Lead with Benefits Not Features

A benefit is something that the product or service will help you do. A feature is the number of pages in a book for example.A benefit could be making money or losing weight like I mentioned before. You should list all of the benefits of using your product or service. You could have dozen or more of them.

 

Prioritize your list of benefits

After lising all the benefits you can think of for your product, you need to list them in order of importance. The most important benefit should come first. The next most imporrtant should be second etc. Keep going down the list.

 

The AIDA formula

The AIDA formula is a very important part of writing a successful money-making sales letter. A stands for attention.. I stands for interest. D represents DESIRE.. And the second A stands fior ACTION.

So first get attention with an eyecatching headline. Then grab interest with a strong first sentence or paragraph. The next phase is to build desire with a powerful list of benefits. Last but not least is to ask for action. Have them fill out an order form or make a telephone call or do something.  Tell exactly what you would like the reader to do.

 

Satisfaction Guaranteed

You need to have a strong guarantee of satisfaction or money back.  This takes all the pressure off the buyer.  They know they will not be disappointed with their purchase or they will get their money back.

 

Call to Action

Here is where you ask for the order. Tell the reader exactly what you want them to do.  Be clear and precise. Fill out the order form below or call the following number etc.

 

The P. S. is always read

It is a good idea to have a P. S. or post script in every letter because people always read the P. S.  Here is where you can add a bonus and explain the offer in some detail.

 

Order form

One great copywriter Ted Nicholas told me to start writing with the order form because it should summarize the whole offer. It should tell exactly what the buyer will get and how much it will cost. It is a good idea to always add a bonus or two  to your offer.

Read and Study Successful Ads

Read and study successful ads to help internalize the elements of successful ads. You can find books with successful ads in them on amazon for example. Practice writing these out by hand.  This will help you to remember exactly what to do when you go to write your own ad.

Here You Have the Basics of Writing a Money-making Sales Letter.

Dan Kennedy says that you can a good sales letter from the information in a post like this or from his book The Ultimate Sales Letter. It does not have to be perfect to do the job. Good luck in your writing. You can build it piece by piece.

Jaaxy Pricing

 

<!– Global site tag (gtag.js) – Google Analytics –>

<script>

gtag(‘config’, ‘UA-119145211-1’);
</script>

 

 

I am in the process of learning more about Jaaxy and it’s pricing.  It is a keyword search tool.  Keywords are words that people use to search the internet for answers to their questions or problems. Keywords help you to do niche research also.

I just upgraded to the Pro level so I can get more from this world’s best keyworld tool.  I went for the yearly plan rather than monthly because it is cheaper that way I saved $29 that way too. There is nothing wrong with that.

By the way I have a special account that allows me to pay for a new computer or to add services that I need for this blog.  I did not even know I would need it when I started it. I just like to always have money. It allows me the freedom to do what I need to do.

Is there a free trial for Jaaxy?

Yes.  Any one can try out Jaaxy for free.  Just search for Jaaxy and it will pop up. You can try it as long as you want.

After you have tried it a while you may want to upgrade so you can do more searches.  You can also find things like your site rank.  This is one thing that attracted me to the Pro version. It will search for the first 10 pages in Google instead of just 1 page for your site rank for each keyword you enter.

The cost is only $19 per month or $199 per year for the Pro version . Pro is what most new websites use..

The Enterprise version is $49 per month.  It is also available for a year at $498

I just noticed that the pricing of Jaaxy is in a state of flux.  It is changing quickly.  I believe they are testing different prices to see what works the best, that is that makes the most money. The most recent price I have seen is $16.58  monthly for Pro and $41.58 for Enterprise.

So there is good news. The price went down in the last day or two. The bad news is that it could change again and maybe go up again. If you see a price you like take it and do not wait.  The old price may not come back. Or it could come back. We don’t know.

The new Jaaxy just started near the beginning of 2018 I believe. I did not use my computer for a couple of weeks at the end of February and the begining of March. I had issues with the old one.

Both paid versions allow an unlimited number of searches. The number of keywords in a search also goes up from the free trial version. The number of keyewords available in a search also goes up.

Allow yourself some time to try out Jaaxy.  Iam still learning about it. but I like what I see so far.

My conclusion is that Jaaxy is worth the money to upgrade, but you do not have to. If you cannot afford it right now Jaaxy lite will serve you well.

You can upgrade to Jaaxy Pro do so here.

Free Budget Planner Worksheet

What do you do when there is a drastic change in your income?  What if a spouse loses his or her job. First you need  a budget worksheet.

1. Budgeting Worksheets.

Here is a sample budgeting worksheet.

TV

Cell phones

Heating

Internet

Telephone

Electric

Car Insurance

Life Insurance

Newspapers

Christmas

Grocery

Household

Clothing

Personal

Transportation: car payment

Liscence Plates

Gasoline

Entertainment

Miscellaneous

 

2. Start with the Old Budget

If you had a budget before you can start with that.  Fill in the amounts you have been spending in each category. This is your starting point. If you have been spending $100 a week for groceries,  you can adjust that downward as neceassary.  If this is difficult start with a small 10% cut across the board.  This is a peocess. It probably won’t be done overnight.

3. Modify the Old to Create a New Budget

Like I mentioned above you can reduce everything by 10% to make the process simpler.  If you feel that is too much in some cases you can modify that to 5%.  Other categories many need to be reduced even more for example 15% or even 20%.

One thing I did recently was to estimate the total decrease in “take home” income from loss of a job.  The difference was estimated to be  $8 an hour.  I then multiplied that by 40 hours to get a $320 goss change in income for each week.  This helped me to develop a target for new total gross income. I estimated the total change to be 35%. In other words if total take home income was $1000 a week the new total is estmated to be $650.

 

 

4. Establish Your New Budget

Now you can establish your new buget by reducing each category by the percentage you esablished you need. Go down through all the categories and multiply by 65%.  (Since 65% is 100% – 35%.)  You will actually muliply by 0.65 to get the number you are looking for. When you have done all that, the hard work is done.  Budgeting is fun for me since I like numbers. Now you are ready to try out your new budget.

 

5. Put Your New Budget to the Test

Now is the time to test out your new budget to make sure it works for you.  Each person will have different needs.  Do not be afraid to tweek your new budget a little more.  You need to be comfortable with your new spending plan.

How to Start From Scratch

If you have not been using a budget, then you will need to establish what your current spending pattern are by recording all your expenditures for a period of one month or 30 days. You can make this fun if you try.  There are likely to be some surprises, both good and bad.  Do not worry.  This process will help you gain control over your spending.

 

Modify Your Baseline budget

You can now modify your current spending patterns to put them in line with your newly required spending patterns. When you get to this point you have really accomplished something. Give yourself a pat on the back.  Give yourself a reward for the work you have done.  Rewards I find are a good motivator.   I think you will too.

I believe this exercise in budgeting will be helpful for many people.  Let me know if you have any questions or comments. I welcome them.

Making Money With Craigslist

Hello everybody. Here I am going to tell you what I have recently learned about making money with Craigslist. This information is inspired by Moneymaking Craigslist Magic by Dwight Allen. I have not made any yet but I am learning about what it takes to  make money.  This is one way to make money online.

Advantages of Using Craigslist to Make Money

1. Craigslist is perfect for the little guy or gal to make money because it is free.

2. Millions of people are looking on Craigslist every day.

3.It works fast. In a matter of days you will know if your ad is going to work. Magazine advertising takes months to know if your ad will work or not.

4. Posting on Craiglist is really easy.  You simply have to follow the instructions.

5. You don’t have to have your own website or an Amazon or Ebay account. You don’t need an information product of your own.

6. Anyone can do this anywhere. You can sell an information product of your own or simply act as an affiliate.

 

Free Email plus Free Craigslist ads help you sell moneymaking opportunities

Craigslist is one of the top job databases.  People who are unemployed or underemployed look here.

This opens up an amazing profit opportunity for you.

 

How this works

You can post your ad in the job offered classification.  You are not going to lie. You are not offering a job, but you are placing a “blind” ad. There are many of these blind ads in Craigslist’s job offered sections. They give just a few details but  may not give the name or even the phone number. You are asked to respond by email with your contact information.

People looking for work on Craigslist are used to seeing these “blind” ads. People will not find it unusual when you post a “blind” ad on Craigslist. If they are really interested and they need to make some money, they will give you their email address. They will click for more information.

After they send you their email address it is ok to send them an offer for your moneymaking product by email.

 

Build your email list

Build up your email list. You can use it to offer other moneymaking products with a low price around 4 to $7 and certainly under $20. Your email list is like gold. People who get a free product first (ebook or pdf) will be more like to get something from you that they have pay for. They will trust you more.

 

Warning

Whenever you send an email you should offer the option to cancel or stop sending emails. This is just a courtesy. If they don’t say stop you can continue sending various moneymaking and other offers.  You will get repeat business from some people. They are the real gold lof the list.

There are no rules against mailing to anyone over and over if they give you their postal mailing address.

 

Not everone orders but…

When you begin to get one order out of a hundred (that’s good by the way) and you get a hundred emails a day, you can make $10 to $25 or more every day. Now you really have a money maker.

 

How to choose an affiliate program  to promote

Popular ideas and how to get more

Some of the most popular ideas right now are information on paid surveys.  affiliate marketing plans,,social media posting for pay, writing short articles and getting  paiid.. And there are many other ideas you could come up with.

 

 

How to maximize results

To maximize your results you need two things. You need to keep the price in the right range. Your price needs to be around $7 and not over $20.  People who are job seeking usually don’t have a lot of money to spend.  If you are selling an ebook you ask for only $4.

 

Secondly you can use testimonials from past customers.  You can put them in your ads or sales letters. If you can get reviews from recognized authorities that will make customers more likely to buy.

 

Don’t

There are two big don’ts. Don’t advertise anything that does not work. You do not want unhappy customers asking for a refund.  You don’t want customers to flag your ad.  Then it is removed with just a click  There is no appeal process. .

 

Don’t offer mult-level marketing programs in the j”ob offe”r section. If you have ta program in hat you know works you can market it but do so in two steps. First offer an information report or an ebook.

Do not use hype or make wild claims about possible earnings.

 

Review other job offers

To get an idea how to make your offers, it is a good idea to look at other job offers.  Try to pattern yousr after the best ones.

 

What to sell

Some othe popular ideas are “Make money sending emails”,”Make money writing short articles on your computer,” Make money posting on social media”,, “Make money filling out surveys.’

There are many other ideas you could use with a little imagination. Reviewing other job offers and combing two or more ideas will help you come up with new ideas.

 

How to sell

Place an ad for something like “Get paid to play on Facebook”.People contact you then you send them a free or low priced reort or pdf teaching them how to do it. You could do it another way and send them directly to the company. You then get a commission for everyone who joins the program.

Next go directly to Craigslist for your area. Click on the “jobs offered” section  As your category you will check either “general labor” or “marketing.”

Don’t put your affiliate link directly into your ad. Also don’t tell them it will cost them anything or how much.

This is just the introduction to selling on Craiglist

Here I have just given you enough to get started. There will be some tesing to find out what works for you. This is the real fun  and excitement of selling on Craigslist.

I wish you the best.

Please share this on social media.

P.S. I had a comment on this Craigslist article. It said something like “isn’t it dishonest to advertise in the “job offered” section when you are not offering a job?”

Here is my comment: It clearly is wrong to say that you are offering a job if you are not. But we are not advocating doing that.  Part of the problem is that Craigslist does not have a “business opportunity” section to advertise in.

So we have to use what is available and be sure NOT to suggest that we ARE. However it is common to have ads on Craigslist that are not jobs. There ARE ways to make money ads , though, and could be of interest to someone who is looking for a job.

There is always the alternative to go to Ablewise or another website that does have business opportunity ads.

Also after receiving their email address there is an opportunity to explain more about what is involved in the money-making opportunity. Most will not respond but some will. If they do then it is o.k.

I DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO BE DISHONEST. Thanks for letting me explain.
