Offline Gold Description

Andrew Cavanagh is a one of the web’s leading copywriters and has worked primarily in the direct response marketing industry. He has worked with many information marketers, writing copy for the products and services. He is also an experienced entrepreneur owning 6 brick and mortar businesses and appearing across 40 radio stations in Australia.

Mainly known as a copywriter, he has gotten a lot of attention when has released the popular series of products called Offline Gold. These products are geared to help Internet marketers create an income by offering services to offline businesses.

Offline Gold Detailed Overview

The concept of the Offline Gold for the Online Marketer is to take the Internet Marketing skills you have developed and approach local offline business with your services. This can be anything from setting up autoresponders, writing ads, setting up PPC advertising for them, building a search engine marketing campaign for them, or building a website (Andrew uses the example of building a website in the book but you can offer many other services).

The average business owner is busy running to the day to day tasks of maintaining their business so they do not have much knowledge about marketing or Internet marketing to be specific. This is when you come in. Because you have the experience of various skills that you’ve build, you are the expert and you can offer them services to help get them online or help redo and make additions to their site if they already have a website.

But why would they want to hire you to do simple Internet tasks? Many business owners are constantly looking for somebody to help improve their business because they simply don’t have the time to learn the necessary skills required. You can liken this to hiring an accountant rather than doing your own bookkeeping.

Andrew has a lot of experience in direct marketing and copywriting so he knows how to deal with prospects and get customers to sign on to his services. So in that regard, he may have much more experience and comfort than the regular person that is just starting out, but that doesn’t mean this is something you can’t do.

You can walk into a business and start a regular conversation that leads to the topic of improving their business with the Internet. Andrew breaks this whole process down and makes it easy for you to do the same thing he does to get clients.

While the focus is on selling website development, it is certainly not limited to that. If your potential client has a website, you can improve the copy or design of the website, add a lead capture to the page, etc. The great thing about this program is the fact that you don’t necessarily need to be an expert. You can outsource somebody else to build a website, setup an autoresponder sequence, and build an SEO campaign with sites like eLance.com and guru.com.

Offline Gold Reputation

Overall, this is a great introduction to selling services to offline businesses. If you’ve been having trouble setting up an Internet business for yourself but have the necessary skills to know what is needed to be done in regards to website development, SEO and other Internet skills, you certainly have what it takes to get started in this business.

The only bad thing is that the strategies are not very specific as I liked them to be. For example: You don’t get a salesletter you can send out to potential clients, a telephone script for cold callring, or follow up marketing pieces. However at $19.99, this book is an absolute steal and worth every penny. If you don’t think so, you can take advantage of Andrew’s 365-day money back guarantee.

Decent tool

Along with internet marketing, I am also experienced in offline marketing. To further my profits in offline marketing, I decided to test out Offline Gold. The information is very well presented and detailed. It is very helpful and informative for someone who is very interested in pursuing a business in offline marketing. The techniques are quite risky and depend on your comfort level. A specific technique requires one to cater to offline businesses - which is a risky technique that doesn't guarantee success. Otherwise, I was able to efficiently sell my skills and expertise to several clients. I am making a good amount of money each month implementing these techniques. I really love the information presented in this product - and I believe everyone can benefit from this product.

Good Product for Experienced Internet Marketers

I jumped on the bandwagon to get this product. On the WF, offline products are all over the place in the last year. This product is the one that started it all. Andrew's course assumes that you have some type of knowledge whether it is seo, ppc, website design, etc. If you don't, you can always outsource that part if you get a client.

This course focuses on how to contact local, small businesses in your area to help them with online marketing. To me, the course is old school cold calling or walking right into a business. That part isn't for me. However, if you have thick skin and don't mind being told no on the phone or in person, than try this out. You don't have to be an expert, but you should have some knowledge of the internet marketing game. Because of this course I focused strictly on SEO and got a couple of clients to consultant for. I didn't use the exact marketing techniques that are mentioned, but Andrew did provide me the knowledge of how to approach business owners and sell my skills. If you're struggling with affiliate marketing, than this is a great route to go, and you can get nice 4 figure checks.

Do your research

Looking at this website, I noticed the lack of professionalism and the not so aesthetic look immediately. Once I started reading the comments, many of them from non English speaking countries, I was amazed at the specific and great grammar they all had. I also noticed all the comments had the same cadence.

I looked up several of the names and noticed something. They are all professional freelance writers. That's right, people who get paid to write specific things for other people.

So I went a step further and started searching for specific strings in the book selling and found them to be on 4 different "marketing book" sites, in the same exact order.

Just be warned, this is not what you think. This is basically a "Give me $50, and I'll tell you how to make $500" to find out the way to make $500, is to find 10 people who'll give you $50, too.

Well Worth The Investment

Offline Gold provided exactly what I had been searching for.

I started my websites design business just over a year and was looking to take my business to the next level.

This ebook provided just what I needed. I found a ton of great ideas for getting started, building the business and handling the situations and questions that would arise when providing web services for offline businesses.

However, I agree with the review in that it was lacking a bit of information that would have been even more helpful, such as examples for letters and correspondence pieces to use when contacting and following up with potential clients. With those few additions, this would be absolutely perfect!
