Four Strategies To Bring You Six (And Maybe Even Seven) Figures In 2013

By: Dave Dee on: December 24th, 2012 5 Comments

What are your goals for 2013?

I’m betting one of them is to make more money.

Grant it, I’m not going out on a limb here as I don’t think I’ve ever met an entrepreneur whose goal was to make less money than they did the year before.

Of course, this year getting customers, selling at decent profits and holding onto income will present new challenges.

Tax increases, regulatory fees and full-time jobs being converted to part-time jobs threaten to dampen or eliminate untold amounts of consumer spending.

This means new strategies, more appealing offers, and targeted compelling copy will be crucial to reach your monetary goals.

Today I’m going to give you four strategies that can add an extra $100,000 or more (I’ve seen businesses add $1 million or more using these.)

Add speaking to your business plan: Last Thursday, Dan wrote about the importance of gaining knowledge. No matter what your business, you know about something that others don’t. You can easily earn $5,000 to $10,000 or more per speech for a sixty to ninety minute talk. Plus you can often sell your product, add people to your herd and more.

Become a coach or consultant: One of the most lucrative streams of income is in coaching and consulting. In fact, many businesses end up making more money from coaching and consultant than they do from their initial business. You can add from $100,000 to $1 million per year as a coach or consultant.

Create an info-product to sell. Developing a profitable information marketing product to sell such as a newsletter, e-book, videos, book, etc. can transform an existing business into a six or seven figure business. Not only that, information products can be sold 24/7, meaning you’re not trading hours for dollars.

Make money with affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a $7 billion dollar industry. There are two ways you can make money with affiliate marketing. You can build your own affiliate army to promote your products, services and launches. Or you don’t even need your own product or service to sell. You can add zeros to your bottom line by simply promoting other people’s products or services for them.

Each day this week we’ll drill down on each of these strategies and share the benefits of adding one or more of these to your business  and how each one can bring you an extra $100,000 to $1 million next year.

      These are great ideas to get your business chugging out more profits. Do you have any suggestions about how to entice others to market your product? Where do you look for these affiliates? We have not tapped into this, and I intend to look into it. One negative to consulting is that it takes you away from your own business which can be a problem if you are not able to handle your own work efficiently. Makes sense to streamline your tasks as much as possible if you go in this direction. I like the idea of speaking. Thanks for an interesting post!

        Mary,
        You can learn a lot about affiliate marketing with the course we put together here http://store.dankennedy.com/group-6/info-marketing/super-affiliate-secrets.html As for consulting…you’re absolutely right…it does take away from your business unless consulting becomes your business. Consider why you’re consulting or coaching and how it fits into your long-term business strategy. Are there people who would pay you to simply shadow you and “consult” at breakfast, lunch and dinner (which they pay for as well?) Would you pay to simply shadow Dan Kennedy for a day and have him answer questions and give advice along the way? If so let me know how much and I’ll send you an invoice (kidding…or am I?)
