Here we teach you how to leverage the popular website Fiverr - as a broker. It's all about the markup. First a little background:
I have to admit, I didn’t come up with this concept. It’s an age old concept that makes use of the proverbial middle man.
Hey, before you talk about the middle man, hear me out. The middle man is important in today’s society. The middleman brings people together.
One of the largest and most profitable corporations in the world is a middleman. Amazon.
So is Facebook for that matter. They bring the buyer and the seller together while taking a little piece for themselves.
I first saw this concept of the middleman at a job I once had. I applied for a job, mainly because I needed one. I had applied to so many jobs, I didn’t recognize this particular company when they called me back.
I go to the interview and my interviewer said they were a brokerage company.
I said, OK – you mean like a stock broker, or mortgage broker? He said yea, but we deal in much smaller items like pizza, limo rides, and skydiving.
To make a long story short, I didn’t last at the job long – politics. But I learned a valuable lesson on how to be a broker on a small scale, and how that small scale is part of an enormous market.
Brokering isn’t affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is when you sell a product or service of another, and you receive a commission.
Brokering is more like you sell an asset of another and you mark up the price.
The difference in what it actually cost and your markup, is the profit that you keep. Much like what a car dealership, or a grocery store does. to make a profit. They buy products (wholesale) mark them up, then sell them at retail prices. The problem is, it costs a lot up front to purchase the products.
The system I use is a little different. Instead of having to buy products then sell them at a markup, this teaches you how to sell services at a markup.
OK, here’s a good example. Back to the job I used to work at but lost – again politics.
OK, someone would call in or email us and say hey I need a Skydiving adventure for 2 people. I want it at this location, and I need it for next weekend, yada, yada, yada.
We would call a skydiving place in the city he wanted, make reservations for the weekend he requested. The skydiving place would quote us a price of $250 and we’d book it. We would then get the confirmation numbers. We would switch back over to the waiting customer and charge him $400 for the two people on the weekend he requested. He would pay the $400 and we would send him the confirmation.
The company made a cool $150 off the transaction. A transaction that took less than 5 minutes. The sales person (me) would make considerably less, but that’s how brokering works.
That’s not exactly what you’ll learn how to do in this guide. But the concepts are the same.
There have been quite a few technological advances that makes it a lot easier to be a broker.
In this guide, you’ll learn that there are literally thousands of things that you will be able to be a broker for – yes thousands.
We will concentrate on the service industry. As opposed to the product industry. In the product industry, you buy then sell. In brokering the service industry, you sell then buy. All from your computer.
You'll set up the online infrastructure that you will need to succeed.
You’ll also learn how to create your own offline marketplace.
You’ll see first hand how easy it is to make your first markup today. Yes, today!
