Your current clients, if you are in the service business, or the customers that walk into your store is you are selling a product, are your best sources of additional income, provide you find something of value for them to purchase. That something can be related to your current service or product that you represent, or it could be totally unrelated.
How much of an impact would there be to your bottom line if you could add another $100 per day to your income? Looking at a 5 day week, that amounts to approximately $2,000 a month of additional income. Of course, that amount, or even half of that would be most welcome by almost all small businesses.
The challenge is to find that “item” of value and then provide it to your clients or customers. What if that “item” was provided to you free of charge, on a consignment basis and every time you sold one, you got to keep 40% of the purchase price. If you could find such an “item” and you saw the value in it for your customers/clients, would you not want to make it available to them?
Could your product be the one that other business owners would like to add to their inventory? Do you know of another business that offers a product that you could sell to your clients or walk in customers? This is an everybody wins situation.
Can this be done? I am going to offer 6 of my books on small business, personal record keeping, and family budgets and other related topics, on a consignment to local stores and service providers. This will be my project for the month of November, and I will keep you posted as to my results. My books range in price from $15 to a top of $35 and half the sales price will be kept by the small business that is handling. my books. During the six weeks I will work on a small display for my books that will be included. During the months of November and December I will keep you informed as to my progress.
Your challenge is to either request my package and offer it in your business, or package a part of your business and offer it to others.
One never knows what each day is going to bring. The important thing is to be open and ready for it.
