Can a Done For You Program Work For You?

done for you marketing

Beware of the Done For You Sales Pitch

If you’re an online home biz marketer you may have noticed a lot of people now offering ‘done for you’ packages.

This is very attractive to the newbie who sometimes finds it hard to learn and implement what they learn. Leaders also know that the biggest impediment to success for most people is implementation.  Most people are either too confused, too lazy, or too scared to take the steps needed to get their new venture off to a flying start. Enter the done for you pitch.

Think of done for you emails, done for you traffic, done for you conversions, done for you brand building. So if you were to outsource these tasks to a third party what will be your role? It’s simple.  You become a project manager. Here’s the downside of this approach.  If you don’t know how to do it yourself how are you going to ensure that the people you outsource the work to will be doing the best job possible?

There is a different way to get a lot of the hard stuff to be done by others in the early stages.  Rather than try and do the outsourcing youself, join a program that does a lot of the work for you.  The advantage of this approach is that you don’t have to recruit outsourcers to do some of these tasks, because the company you’ll be promoting already has a done for you system in place right now.

Done For You Inclusions

Apart from the inclusion of pre-built sales funnels, capture pages, and copy and paste emails, affiliate programs that really push the envelope will also promote big ticket products on the back end for you.  And unlike traditional affiliate programs – that keep the commissions for additional sales made – you keep all the commissions.  This approach usually involves the use of the phone to upsell qualified people into the company’s higher priced products.

So if the company does all the selling for you what is your role?  Simple.  Become good at driving quality traffic to the capture page they supply you.

Done correctly this approach can exponentially increase the referring affiliate’s income without any additional work.  By way of example here is the ‘done for you’ affiliate  program I use.

phone fear
Remember the old be-do-have mantra? First you must BE and DO before you can HAVE. Most people do it differently. They want to HAVE, and they want it now.

Jim Rohn put it neatly:

“The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. That is why I wish to pay fair price for every value. If I have to pay for it or earn it, that makes something of me. If I get it for free, that makes nothing of me.”

When I started working from home in 2006, the program I joined required me to make calls to leads that had been generated online. I didn’t know anything about generating leads online, nor did I have any experience phoning people about big ticket education products.

In fact the mere thought of phoning people who I didn’t know from a bar of soap terrified me. I wasn’t comfortable phoning people at the best of times. I was the sort of guy who’d travel half way across town to speak to someone rather than call them on the phone.

So this was a very nerve wracking period for me. But I said to my wife that if I was to put food on the table (our traditional business had gone bust) I HAD to do something, and do it fast.

So I got started. Within 34 hours of starting my first leads had hit my email inbox. I was excited for sure, but still full of anxiety about phoning them. So what did I do?

I changed my mental state.

Now, don’t ask me how I did it, because to this day I still don’t fully know. But before I made that first call I had visualised myself as being someone who was in possession of a good result.

That said I do recall that I was hopeless for the first few calls. And then it clicked. I became smoother, more self-assured and more able to really ‘connect’ with people. Within a week I was bullet proof and by the end of my first month had made almost $10,000. I couldn’t believe it, but you can’t beat money in the bank to know something is working.

But it all started with BE-DO-HAVE. Changing my mental state was the key.
