Although there are advantages to selling your own
proprietary products and services, there are also
drawbacks. For example, the time and investment
required to produce your own book, invention, or other
product could mean a long delay in receiving profits
and cashflow essential to your business survival.
For this reason, you may decide to sell other people`s
products and services, either exclusively, or to
complement your own product line.
You could stock an entire retail store with products,
buy a franchise or other business, or obtain a
distributorship or dealership. However, this could
require a substantial financial investment.
Here, then, are just a few, low-cost ways to profit
from selling other people`s products and services.
- Commission Sales
Act as a sales representative or agent of a company
and sell their products or services for a percentage
commission of the sales price.
Many companies on the Internet offer associate or
affiliate programs that you can join to earn
commissions selling their products and services.
Sometimes you can even make money from the efforts of
other affiliates who sign up through your website.
Thus, without having a product of their own, some
persons are earning their sole but substantial income
from affiliate programs.
