"Do You Sell Hard Goods Rather Than Digital Products And Want To Know How To Use The Internet To Increase Sales?"

By Paul Crane and Rocky Tapscott

If you sell a downloadable product, then Clickbank is the obvious current choice for order fulfillment.

If you can build a site wrapped around your theme, visitors will come. Of course, first you have to build content to attract and PREsell those visitors.

But what if you a small business or a craftsman that creates/manufactures/retails your own hard goods (i.e., products that you can actually touch and that you ship -- non-digital products)? For example...

  • an artist who paints oceanfront landscapes

  • a small business with a niche toy product

  • a craftsman who creates unusual wooden gifts

  • an ironworker who designs ironwork sculptures

You need traffic.

First, PREsell with content, then sell to those warm, Pre-sold visitors. The basic concept, as with any product or service or whatever you want to sell, remains the same...

1) Develop your own site in the niche that you know and love.

2) Fill that site with high-value content.

3) Use that content to attract your own niche-targeted traffic.

4) Build a following through your own e-zine.

5) Use your e-zine and site content to PREsell your targeted visitors. And finally...

6) Convert that Presold, warm, willing-to-buy traffic into sales of your product.

7) Diversify your revenue plan to include other models (ex., Adsense, affiliate income, services, etc.), all related to your theme.

Solo Build It! is the perfect choice for local Businesses that want to build a website that does all these things and brings in free targeted traffic from the search engines 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

And now, with SBI! E-commerce, you can...

  • Sell and ship your product.

  • Do it all through the power of your very own 2-tier, customizable affiliate program.

  • Use the enhanced, multiple e-zine capability to reach customers and affiliates whenever you like.

  • Manage and track your growing business with extensive "reporting and managing" back-end tools.
