Becoming A Merchant – The Other Side Of CPA – Part 4

Well now that you have your product, required funding as well as a merchant account, there will be something else that you need: some staff. While at first, you may think that you can manage this business all by yourself. Sure, this might be true if you only make a dozen or so sales a day. However, when your business quickly begins to grow, it will also rapidly become too overwhelming for one person to handle every aspect of it.

One of the most important parts of owning a rebill CPA offer is customer service. You need to be able to answer your customers should they want to cancel their subscription, have not received their product, or have some other problem. If you have just one phone number that is always busy and it takes you a week to answer your emails, this will leave your customers dissatisfied. And if they want to cancel, or have not gotten their product, they will simply end up charging back through their credit card company.

There are alternatives to actually having an office and hiring staff locally. You can outsource many functions of your business, including the customer service to a 3rd party. There are plenty of call centers which can handle queries from your customers and treat requests such as cancellations. All you have to do is set up a web based interface to let them do the transactions and a knowledge base with answers to questions that customers may ask.

As for many administrative tasks, such as dealing with the vendor that is shipping out your merchandise and doing general admin and accounting functions, this can be outsourced to a virtual assistant. You can find many offshore outsourcing companies doing business on internet marketing forums. It is usually possible to have a dedicated, full time virtual assistant working for you for $200 to $400 a month.

While this short guide has given you the general framework needed in order to build and operate this kind of business, it is far from complete. After all, a truly detailed guide covering every aspect of this topic would probably be several hundred pages long. Therefore, you need to go out and seek the necessary information on this business.

There are a few ebooks and guides which deal about this topic that you can read, which will give you more detailed guidance. But don’t forget that there is something a lot more valuable than any written guide: actual human interaction. Even though this is your own business and you are the sole person responsible for its success it doesn’t mean that you have to do everything all by yourself. Network with other marketers who are running this kind of business or planning to set one up. Exchange information, practical advice and ideas with them. Ask questions on marketing forums. The better prepared you are, the less likely you will be to make costly mistakes and the more profitable your business will be.

Bundling Packages of Content

One of the areas a lot of internet marketers overlook is creating their own product. Many think in one way: affiliate revenue.

Now, affiliate marketing is great, however you sometimes need more than one way to generate revenue, and creating your own products is one of the best ways to do it.

The content doesn’t necessarily have to be 100% unique either, sometimes rebranding some parts of master resale rights products along with some unique offerings of your own can build a great product for potential buyers.

Here is a hypothetical example. Imagine that you are a prolific SEO specialist that is great at giving speeches and presentations, but lack the attention span to do long form writing such as ebooks or reports for potential clients.

Creating a video series could be a great way to create some passive income for yourself as well as your affiliate revenue. But sometimes you need to have more than just a video series. Luckily, you have several options, including hiring a virtual assistant or contractor to create an ebook for you. You could have them create a unique offering for your, including all of the areas you touch on in the video series as well as other things you may have overlooked at the time of recording. Or you could have them write a supplemental ebook that gives different looks and case studies on different websites and proper SEO work in practice.

Building a package of content like this is very enticing for potential buyers, because it will give them more content for the same price. If you could buy one ebook that comes with an audio only version, or an ebook on the same subject with a video series, a free case study, and a follow up series giving tips and tricks for 3 months after your purchase, which would you choose (given the prices are in the same ballpark obviously).

Packaging different product types together is the best way to reach a broader audience, every person learns differently — so having different ways to reach them with the same consistent message is very important and essential to a great product launch. Make sure you diversify your offerings in order to reach the most people.
