Stay at Home Business Idea
Gaining Affiliate Marketing Leads Offline
My husband and I both have our own websites, and both choose affiliate program business opportunities as part of our marketing efforts. But we both do this in a drastically different way. This website, in particular the Website Profits area of this website, goes over the methods I use for affiliate marketing leads, and my main stay at home business idea. But here, on this page, let me explain the method my husband has chosen.
Whether yours is part of the stay at home mom businesses, or you are just looking for a stay at home business idea, hopefully this idea will get you thinking!
Offline Affiliate Marketing LeadsMy husband's website, Business Marketing Tactics, is dedicated towards helping local small businesses with two things: building an online presence and gaining/retaining customers though the Greeting Card System.
He uses two main affiliate program business opportunities and markets them primarily to small business owners. But here's the kicker...he does it offline.
His website is there to direct his offline customers too, but he actually sets up in-person meetings, goes to businesses, and does in-person presentations. Being a natural sales person, he does quite well with this approach. There are so many businesses in our area (and any area) that need these programs, and they work so well hand in hand, that we'd recommend this stay at home business idea to anyone who likes selling. And we'll be happy to offer you advice on how to get started.
Here are the types of businesses that need this stay at home business idea:
What we've found is that it is easiest to focus on one specific niche, such as children's activities instructors, in your area and become specialized in meeting their needs, as opposed to going after all small businesses in general. This stay at home business idea will apply to any one of the above service related niches. Choose the stay at home business idea you like the best!
Here is some more information about the two affiliate program business opportunities we promote for this stay at home business idea. The first, SiteBuildIt, is an actual affiliate program. The second stay at home business idea, the online printable greeting cards system, is not an affiliate program but a network marketing company. Both can be sold to small businesses as tools to grow their business.
It's important to note that both of these programs can be marketed online as well. Don't limit this stay at home business idea to the offline world; build a site using SBI and bring it online too.
Affiliate Program Business Opportunities: SiteBuildItSiteBuildIt is an affiliate program. This website, my husband's website, and all our other websites have been built with SiteBuildIt. SiteBuildIt, or SBI, is an online platform used to create and maintain websites that work. You can take any existing offline business, or hobby, or skill and turn it into a profitable website using the training and tools provided by SBI.
Most local offline businesses need a website. Many have current websites that are total failures, or have canceled their previous websites, because again, they are total failures. Why? Their designers created a pretty site, but failed to make it work. SBI contains all the tools and training to make the sites work!
SBI offers small, local, offline businesses two options, and the affiliate gets paid based on the option chosen. Local businesses have the option of having a website built for them by a team of expert webmasters, or they can choose to build their own website using the SBI platform.
As an affiliate, this stay at home business idea will pay $75 for the do-it-yourself website or $150+ for the site referred to the team to build. In addition, since SBI carries an annual fee, affiliates get commissions on renewals annually. For as long as your customer stays with the program, you will earn commissions, year after year.
Here are some facts about the SBI affiliate program:

I also encourage you to take the time and read over my husband's website. You can refer your offline clients to this website for information if you choose not to create your own website, and you can learn a lot about the features and benefits of the product you are attempting to sell.
Affiliate Program Business Opportunities: Online Printable Greeting CardsThe second stay at home business idea we sell to offline businesses is the online printable greeting cards system. This network marketing opportunity has practical business applications. Most local offline service businesses have need to send their customers cards, at the very least at holiday time.
Think of doctors and dentists. They have need to send their clients reminder postcards for their appointments, and the cost of these postcards can be staggering. Add to that the amount of time it takes for their assistants to write all the cards, and what they are in need of is a good system to assist them.
Enter the online printable greeting cards system. This system will allow a small business to set it's clients up in the online database, and automate the process of sending out cards. Reminder cards, holiday cards, thank you cards can be scheduled in advance. When time to send, the system prints the cards, puts them into an envelope, stamps and sends them without the business ever having to touch them.
The cards and postcards are cheaper than most bulk greeting cards services (a greeting card, with a stamp, is less than $1 each). The cards are professional and can even be customized with the doctor's picture, (or a picture of the office, etc) and signature, if desired.
For those small businesses involved in direct mail marketing, the online printable greeting cards system is a great tool as well. Smaller direct mail campaigns can be achieved for a fraction of the cost of sending out junk mail fliers. And since these are greeting cards, the open rate is very high.
