Hi Bill,

I enjoyed this first training session and think that I’m going to get alot out of your training, I like your teaching style! I’m interested in using Contest Burner for offline marketing. I haven’t got my first client yet, in fact I am struggling to get my first one. I was just wondering, can Contest Burner be used to actually “get” the client on board?

My thinking is this….can I approach a business and say “Hey Mr Business Owner, I have a great way to get local people to your business buying more stuff from you by running an online contest. And by the way, I will do it for FREE for you!”

I was thinking if I don’t charge for it, then they would have to be absolutely crazy not to say yes to my proposal. Here’s the question though….can I somehow make money by running this contest but not by charging the business owner for it?

This way it would be a win win for the both of us, the business gets loads of new customers, free of charge (their only cost is giving away prizes) and I win because I have “somehow” made money through running the contest (just not sure how).

This may sound stupid to you, but I thought if this wouldn’t cost the business owner, then it would be an easier way to get them on board as a client of mine, then I can upsell them later on other offline marketing services like SEO, email marketing etc but only thing is, I need to make money out of this too some way! I just don’t see how at this moment….can I get a percentage share of the increase in business that I have helped create? Can I somehow tie in an affiliate promotion into the contest for my own commissions?

I know conventional wisdom would be to charge the business owner for running a contest for them but I am trying to think out of the box here and by not charging them it would be alot easier to land them as a client (you can tell I’m struggling to get my first client!). Plus, I was thinking my approach could be different, so, rather than appear as a pushy sales man wanting to take their money for running a contest for their business, I approach as someone who wants to make them money first (and pocket some at the same time for myself!).

I would appreciate your thoughts Bill and everyone else on whether this idea could work.

How is everyone else getting along with contest ideas for their own business? I would love to hear some positive thoughts….

Many thanks,

I thought it was going to be affliate, but that seem to be a longer term commitment and not as lucrative as your own product. So I have mixed feelings.

I bought a training how to set up and market a website. At 1st they gave me 3 PLR’s that should have been good – then had me do a lot of twitter/pings etc…never got any traffic – never taught me how to get traffic for a list.. wasted about $8K

I’m now really gunshy….cause it should have worked.
