–>Large programs require more infrastructure. The truth is that my first group coaching program relied on freeconferencecall.com and email to send out the homework. But, as the program grew from 5 people to 500, and the price increased from $197 to $1200, I had to put so much more in place for the program. Now my group programs have private portals, big email campaigns, ad budgets, IT support people, community managers, etc etc. This infrastructure took me years to develop and build – in addition to revamping the program and delivering it as well. That takes time, and it’s both frustrating and tiring.

Hi. You sound very intelligent. I am much older. I need to make money quickly and cannot afford a lot of upfront fees. I can work as many hours as it takes. After I pay the initial sign up for monthly pays. Are there other cost I will be .asked to add on for more information? You seem very honest and I appreciate that.

It is also better to view ClickBank as a tool for generating leads, instead of hoping to sell 100,000 copies of your e-book immediately. Use ClickBank to drive visitors to your website, then get them on a newsletter list and market to them repeatedly. You may want to offer a contest or freebie along with the newsletter to encourage people to sign up with you.
17. Amazon – Have you heard of FBA? It stands for “Fulfilled by Amazon” and it’s getting pretty popular. Basically, you buy products (in bulk is best) and ship them to Amazon for them to store. When your products sell, Amazon packs them up, ships them out and sends you the money (after taking their cut). There are people making a full-time living from FBA, while others just do it for some extra money.
