How GISellers Can Help You Make Money Online
Recently, I heard someone make a comment about GISelle, one of the top business-oriented sites in the world. Their products, according to them, are top of the line and can be used by anyone. Then, I read an article that really took my attention when it talked about how GISelle was taken down by eBay for using copyrighted materials without permission. If you’ll recall, eBay is one of the biggest online auction sites and has millions upon millions of products listed every day. In my opinion, this was an unfair and unjustified action on eBay’s part.
To me, the company that runs GISelle was not thinking of the potential customer or client when they took their website down. They just wanted to protect themselves from competition. This of course is human nature, and makes it understandable. But, what does this have to do with your business? The answer may surprise you.
When people use GISellers software to create and manage their data, a lot of other companies will want to take a piece of the action. Why? Because GISellers software allows you to make more money by allowing you to sell your GIS based maps, analysis and research to the proper market. While you are allowed to use Google’s map in your website (I hope you will run a GIS business someday), and while you are allowed to modify and sell your GIS based maps and research, you have to allow everyone else to use these same products and information. In my opinion, this is called duplication and is not only bad for your business, but is an unfair practice.
In order for your GISellers software to be successful, it needs to be sold to the right target market. There are many product sites out there, so it is up to you to find the one that will work best for your business. In my experience, it is best to find a company that offers both GISellers and other related software products. A GISellers site might also help you find customers and partners who might want to work with you once you have developed and released your first product. The point is, if you are looking to sell, you need to sell to the right people, and the best way to do that is to develop a list of targeted prospects.
In addition to using Google Maps as your primary marketing tool, you should also use other Internet marketing venues such as social networking and article marketing. Both of these sites allow you to introduce GIS into the marketing mix, and I recommend building a blog on each site as part of your Internet marketing strategy. The reason I say “should” include a blog is because you want to keep your content fresh and dynamic. Having a blog is just another way to attract traffic, and when you use GISellers in conjunction with a blog, you are creating the ultimate marketing powerhouse. Once you start getting traffic to your blog and then building a list of potential customers, the sky is the limit with how much success you can have.
So in summary, GISellers allows you to make your own money without having to spend a lot of money. It can be used by anyone, even if you are a beginner. Best of all, you can use it to promote any product you want! The key to remember is to develop a good business plan, and be consistent in your marketing efforts.
