As business people we look at many propositions that will help us take that next, much desired growth step. We hear that we must "brand" ourselves and be easy to do business with. The list of ideas goes on and on.
THE GOLD MINE IN YOUR BACKYARD
Many people overlook how hard (and expensive) it is to create a new customer. Yet, we focus most of our time and energy in just this area, thinking that if we just could get more customers we would achieve our goals. But what about getting more OUT OF your customers?
If you have been around for a while you have a customer list.
That list is GOLD. Please understand that I am NOT talking about renting out your customer list of email addresses.
What I AM talking about it approaching those customers, who know you and trust you already, with a totally new and different product.
Why should we limit ourselves to selling only one type of product or service when by adding an additional item to our current offerings we can TAKE ADVANTAGE of relationship that exists now? Will your customers resent this move?
Are you in control of your online destiny?Written by Marc Goldman
Are you content with sitting back and being someone elses affiliate forever? If you are then read no further my friend, this ones not for you. But if you are not satisfied with promoting products and services owned by others as sole means of generating revenue from your online business then you are going to love this article.

When you have received anywhere from 50 to 100 responses you are ready to do some work and find out what majority of your respondents want to buy and then you create it!

You can write an information product and put it in ebook format. This is quite a popular option but don't overlook some of many ways your product can be created: Many people have used audio to create fantastic information products. This also adds to perceived value of such products. Perceived value is how much people think your product is worth based on contents of product.
