Remember, each Profit Center needs to be more than just a pitch. I must warn you... you can do all ofrepparttar above and STILL fail at creating Profit Centers that go ka-ching. How?

Imagine, a man wants to get married. A friend tells him to start onrepparttar 105946 road to marriage by simply finding a nice woman and asking her for a date.

Will this work? It CAN, but you and I both know there are many factors that make a difference...

WHO he asks, WHEN he asks, HOW he asks, WHERE he asks, and WHAT he says

All this makes a difference to him (and her) and it makes a difference to you when you're building Profit Centers. Profit Centers need marketing finesse. You may remember Beta videotapes. It was a superior video format, but it failed because it wasn’t marketed as well as VHS.


WHO you makerepparttar 105947 offer to - are they a good match forrepparttar 105948 product or service? If they are not inrepparttar 105949 market for what you offer, it's very unlikely they will buy.

WHAT offer you make - will this offer make a difference for your clients or do they feel like you're pitching them for your own benefit?

WHEN you make your offer to them. Before they buy hosting? After they buy hosting? Once their site is live?

WHERE will you makerepparttar 105950 offer - on your website or in an email? Either can be successful. WHAT will you say? This is crucial. You can have a useful product or service and still may not make sales.

What you say makes a huge difference. Use poor copywriting and people will click away from your offer like water jumping off a hot skillet. Great copywriting can inspire people to GO FIND THEIR WALLETS. That'srepparttar 105951 level of copywriting you want - compelling.

To start building your Profit Centers, test your offer on a group of clients. See if it sells, and if not, analyze why not. Edit your Profit Center until it consistently helps your clients and brings your website hosting business more money.
