A directory (like this one) needs to sell 84 premium listings at $299/yr or 125 at $199/yr to generate $25k. You can then list the directory for sale on MicroAquire for 3-4x ($100k). So $125k total.
In this course I cover the strategy I'm using to build and grow 20 directories to do just this.
You do not need deep technical experience to execute the same plan.
Here's what you'll learn:
- Why I'm so bullish on directories right now
- How you can build a directory
- What software to use to start and scale a directory
- Industries and markets to go after (and what ones to skip)
- Growing your directory with SEO, interviews, social media & partnerships
- Generating revenue via premium listings, display ads, affiliates and other options
- How to win at sales - from finding leads to closing deals
- How to sell a directory making $$$
Here's what's included:
- Training course video (49 mins)
- The sales emails I use to onboard new clients
- Access to my private community with 110 other directory builders
- List of tools/resources I use
- List of awesome directories you can use for inspiration
Please note: The first 100 copies are priced at 50% off ($150 instead of $300), and includes regular updates (I plan to update this monthly going forward).
