Discounted Digital Consulting - How to become successful and have subscribers

One of the most lucrative ways to make money online with the smallest amount of investment is to become an online digital consultant.  This is basically when you are a digital consultant that helps people with their websites, but you never leave your house and you pretty much you do whatever you want throughout the day until someone needs help.

This works well with more prominent companies who can afford to pay a few hundred a month to have you tell them what to do and what not to do.  Don't get me wrong, smaller companies will also pay for this, but they tend to have a short subscription time because they have to watch every penny they spend.

Setting up your membership website
There are plenty of WordPress themes out there that allow you to have your membership website.  You can even purchase whatever theme you want and add a premium membership plugin to it, so people have to pay if they're going to log into your back end. 

It doesn't matter what theme you use, what plugins you use, you need to be sure that there are plenty of options on your back end to keep people coming back.  You will also need to manage the users so you don't have people logging in if they haven't paid for that month.  Remember, you're doing this for profit, so they need to pay up or get out lol.

Live chat options are a necessity
What I would suggest is to have an external live chat for people who want to ask pre-sale questions and have a separate internal one for registered and paying members.  The paying members will have priority over the pre-sales questions, but not much.  You will still need to focus on pre-sales questions because those people are the ones that are going to build your profits!

I like using tawk.to for my live chat, but you might want to use this as well as a secondary one so you can easily differentiate between who is paid and who isn't.  Tawk.to does have an option to have multiple channels, but it's always better to not take chances, and that's why I like using two different chats Discounted Digital Consulting - How to become successful and have subscribers

Premium members get your direct line
You should have three different levels of consulting support, and the top tier should always have a direct line right to your cell phone.  I like doing this because it shows the whales you will dedicate yourself to their needs, and that's what they want to see. 

One little trick I do with this is getting a phone number from grasshopper.com, so people don't actually get my phone number, but they think they do Discounted Digital Consulting - How to become successful and have subscribers  If I have someone paying $500+ a month then I will get an additional phone number from grasshopper.com, route it to my cell phone, and that will be their dedicated line! 

You need to be responsive
If people are paying for your help, and you're not responding, they will file chargebacks, and you will be out of luck.  You will start to get bad reviews, and that's a business killer if you don't already have positive reviews to keep your rating high.  Nobody wants to work with a three-star company, and that's why you need to pick up the phone, answer a text, respond to a live chat, or send an email back right away.

It's 2019, and that means you can be super responsive if you have a smartphone.  You can route all of your business directly to your smartphone and respond to everything right away.  If you have a response time of less than one minute, then you will keep your clients coming back month after month for more consulting.  If you put off your responses, then you need to remember there are other consultants out there that will respond more than you lol.

Knowing your stuff helps
If you think you're going to become a consultant and you don't know what you're talking about, then you're in for a rude awakening.  You will lose sales left and right if the clients think you're out of your element, they will find someone who knows their stuff, and they will stick with them while hating your services.

Don't jump into a niche if you think it will make a lot of money, jump into a niche that you have a higher level of knowledge in than anyone else, and that will be your golden goose!  Don't pick a niche because you want to know more, pick something you already know, then start pulling in clients!


In conclusion,
The pricing is up to you, and that means you can charge $100 a month or $1,000 a month.  Just remember that you're going to be a discounted digital consultant that doesn't go into the business's office.  You might have to remote access a computer here and there, but that's the extent of you working on their stuff lol.  Price your member level tiers lower than you think they should be, and you will get a decent amount of clients over time. Be responsive, have all your contact info public to paying members, and only give out a direct line to those people who are your "premium" top tier members.
