You are a salesman, but is your marketing any good?

AKA, do you love domains and making money online?

Every person with a job, a small business, a 16 year old’s lawn mowing service, the lady calling for donations whose caller id you hate to see pop up, the bum on the corner… everyone, is in sales.  If you are reading this, more than likely you are selling yourself!  Wait, you know what I meant – get your mind out of the gutter!

Anyway, you are either selling your time and knowledge to a company in exchange for a paycheck or you are trying to sell a product or better yet, domain names or internet based products :) .  Most people never make the connection that they are selling themselves – if you can let that sink in, you can immediately apply some insight to your online business.

Domain for Sale

You are a salesman!

Think about it like this – if you are selling things like information products (ebooks, articles, etc), SEO guides, Websites or domain names then you have a product to sell.  True salesmen can sell anything – ie, icecubes to eskimos, but that is not me and it probably isn’t you.  Knowing that is key to your success! 

Why is that important you ask?  Well, most people have a really hard time selling face to face or even online, but bear with me for a second… 

What was your last conversation where you were carrying on without thinking about it at all – spouting off facts, figures, trivia and insight?  Was it related to some hobby or sport or family member?  Think about it.  Do you LOVE to talk about or participate in anything?  It could easily be cycling, running, working out, dieting, flirting, politics, stocks, bonds, corporations, insurance (you are just wierd), blogging, ipad, iphone, laptops, hdtv, bluray, movies, music, kids, parents, sports teams, gardening, sports cars, yoga, dogs, cats, hair, recycling… the list can go on forever, but the point is the conversation you had was about something you LOVE and are passionate about!

Selling online is tough, it takes time and commitment, but if you love what you are doing it doesn’t even seem like work – it is actually fun!

For me, it is domain names, websites and related products.  For you it might be aquariums and products like fish food, lights, plants, floaty thingies like miniature treasure chests and ships or whatever you put in aquariums – the point is that if you love aquariums you immediately thought I was stupid and thought of 17 other things that would make more sense to sell… so why don’t you sell those?  Don’t want to sell physical products?  Easy, go to clickbank or one of the other info product middlemen and search for aquariums – you’ll get more than you would expect to find.  On a side note, you don’t have to really sell physical products per se – many companies will drop ship or have a reseller affiliate id and you can leverage their infrastructure and never even see a product nevertheless touch it.

It is as simple as this – every day I like to look for domains – either dropping domains, online auctions, domain markets and even hand registering domains.  I would be doing this anyway, even if I didn’t want to sell the domains as I think they are valuable in ways stocks and bonds can never be…  But that is just me – maybe you are a great salesman or you just enjoy pimping your time to someone else.
