Easy Offline Riches Review

This is a comprehensive review of Easy Offline Riches.

Let me start out by saying that this package is MASSIVE. It is NOT a light read. There is a lot of info on how to find, contact and sell to offline businesses. So quite honestly, if you don't have a lot of patience this product is NOT for you. I can't stress this enough. There are 11, yes, 11 PDFs alone. That doesn't count the videos and other materials. However, I can say this much. Nothing is left out of the process and there is no reason that if you simply follow the steps why you shouldn't be able to have great success selling to offline businesses.

Okay, let me get to the package itself.

Fortunately, there is a read me text file that tells you what to read first. So read this before you do anything else. Like I said, there are a TON of PDFs to go through.

The first one you need to read is VeryFirstStep, aptly named.

In this PDF, the author tells you what they offer offline business owners with their services
should you choose to use them instead of doing everything yourself. There are pros and cons to this.

On the plus side, you don't have to do as much work. On the downside, you'll only be making $400 per each sale whereas if you went through the entire process yourself, you could make thousands. It all depends on what you want to get out of it and how much work you want to put into it.

By using their service, all you have to do is introduce offline businesses to it. They show you how to go about the process. For those who don't have a lot of time or don't want to put in the work, $400 is not a bad payday for going through a few simple steps.

In this PDF they actually give a few suggestions on how to reach these businesses, however they don't go into great detail for each one. This is where you're going to need supplemental material from someplace else.

Then there is a PDF called Original Report. This PDF goes into detail of what needs to be done should you decide to go through the whole process yourself, meaning you're not going to take advantage of their service. Like I said, you'll make more money this way but it's more work.

The PDF has a nice 14 step process that is very easy to understand and follow.

There is a PDF called MarketingByPhone with a step by step process and even a script to follow when talking to online businesses. Suggestion...memorize the script process. Don't read it. Actually understand what you're saying and it will go over a lot better.

There are then 2 PDFs that have to do with sending out post cards to these businesses. Again, everything is step by step and every easy to understand. Just follow the steps.

There is a PDF called LowCostActionPlan. This is 7 step process to get advertising out there at a very low cost. Again, it doesn't go into a lot of detail for each step so if you're not familiar with a type of promotion, you will need additional info.

There is a PDF called AlmostFreeMarketing. This PDF has some simple suggestions for more ways to promote. Again, everything is step by step but not in a lot of detail.

There is a great PDF on TargetedListBuilding. This PDF goes into how to build a mailing list of businesses to contact. There are some great ideas in this PDF.

There is a PDF called Website that shows you how to setup your turnkey website. This is in case you want to use their service and just refer businesses to it in order to get your $400 per signup.

Then there is a pretty long PDF on VistaPrint. This is very important in order to make sure that all your printing is done correctly, such as your post cards that you mail out.

Finally, there is a resource PDF that contains a number of resources that will help you with your business including mailing list resources, printing resources, classified sites and free website templates.

Then of course there is your actual turnkey website template that comes with the package. All you have to do is get hosting and put it up. There are complete instructions on how to do this.
Again, this is for those who don't want to do everything themselves and just want to refer businesses.

There is a video on how to update your website which is a must see. Visuals are always better than reading.

But this all just scratches the surface.

There is a zip file filled with marketing material., mostly graphics.

There is also a 927update zip file that is very important for you to read. It has updates to the program in it.

There are also bonus reports such as PPC Marketing For Beginners. It's no Perry Marshall book, but it will get you up and running if you've never done PPC before. Also reports on other forms of promotion. They're not terribly in depth, but they will help if you have no knowledge of marketing at all.

I could keep going (like I said, the amount of info is staggering) but I think you got the idea. This package is massive.

However, and this is the important thing. I feel it is more geared to marketers who have a little bit of experience marketing online with some success, because like I said, the promotional side of things (how to advertise) is very minimal. That's not what this package is really about.
Essentially it comes down to two things.

1. Giving you a step by step process for contacting online businesses, including a script.

2. Giving you a great turnkey website if you just don't want to be bothered doing all the work for these businesses yourself. In that case, it's an easy $400 in your pocket if you just..

Make your mailing list
Send your postcards
Make your phone calls

That is essentially what this all boils down to and this package goes over all of that in complete detail. The only thing missing is what you should probably already know if you've been marketing for some time.

How to write articles.
How to use PPC
How to do basic SEO

And so on.

In other words, this is NOT a traffic generation package. It's a package that teaches you HOW to contact offline businesses and how to close the sale...period.

Sure, I'd love it if it went into more detail on marketing, but I already know how to write articles and use PPC, so I don't need that stuff. If YOU do, then this package may be over your head.
However, just by following the simple steps for contacting offline businesses (no traffic generation knowledge needed for that) you should have some success with this program.

In an attempt to help you out with it, if you are on the fence, I am going to include 3 of my own products as bonuses.

1. Complete Article Writing and Marketing Guide - This will show you just how to write killer articles that bring people to your site.

2. Complete Internet Advertising Guide - Goes over just about every form of advertising on the Internet.

3. 5 Years Email Marketing Secrets - This will greatly help you with your email marketing campaigns.

All you have to do is send me your receipt and I'll send these products to you.
Make sure that you see affiliate=swagen on the payment page before you order. I can only send you your bonuses if I'm credited with the sale.

Overall, on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the best, I give this product a 4. I wish it had more promotional stuff in it but I do understand this isn't a traffic generation package. For what it's solid.

I highly recommend it.
