Perfecting the Part-Time Home Based Business Opportunity
by Richard Williams
When Musketeer Partners, Inc. (MP) burst onto the scene recently with the tagline “The World’s Best Part-Time Businesses,” people took notice. Developed by an experienced team of professionals from such diverse backgrounds as marketing, surplus merchandising, E-commerce, and web design, the MP business opportunities certainly lived up to the bold tagline. The Internet-based businesses are near-perfect ways for anyone to quickly start up a traffic-generating E-commerce business. And MP seems committed to making them completely perfect.
“Musketeer Partners is 100% dedicated to being the leading developer of part-time home based businesses,” explained Jaime Klotthor, President of Musketeer Partners. “By focusing on this niche, we are better able to help anyone achieve their goal of starting profitable and fulfilling businesses.”
At this time, MP offers three different businesses, all of which can be easily customized to personal taste: The E-Store Builder, Blowout Bargains, and 24/7 Megamall.
The E-Store Builder is their base offering, developed for individuals with some Internet and/or business experience. I found it to be an excellent E-commerce solution for anyone with access to products wanting to make them available for sale online.
Blowout Bargains, an upgrade to the E-Store Builder, is where MP really starts to shine. This complete E-commerce website is the definition of the word turnkey – it is so effectively designed that anyone, regardless of background, can get a fully functioning business online quickly. It has everything.
Although the actual website is far superior to anything else out there, what really separates Blowout Bargains from the also-rans is the availability of brand name products at steep discounts. Whoever is behind purchasing should be commended – as far as I could tell, one could mark-up most items over 25% and still offer them at prices lower than Wal-Mart’s. Plus, these are not your usual no name products – these are first-quality brands such as Panasonic, Polo, Sony, Davidoff, Joe Boxer, and Liz Claiborne.
I am also very impressed with 24/7 Megamall. This is an excellent part-time business with very little time requirement or website administration. The website features hundreds of instantly recognizable stores and brand name products at the best prices available online.
An innovative searchable directory of affiliate programs, 24/7 Megamall solves one of the most frustrating problems of online shopping – quickly finding a trusted retailer that also offers low prices and superior service. By continuously researching and monitoring thousands of websites, the 24/7 Megamall directory is regularly updated so that only the best are included. The directory includes over 200 stores, including popular names such as Brooks Brothers, Target, Avon, Dell Computers, Land’s End, and The Sharper Image. It also includes exciting boutique retailers such as Sunglasses 2000, iMaternity, GigaGolf, Domestications, and Animal Den.
A 24/7 Megamall affiliate makes money when someone clicks though from their website to a store website and makes a purchase. It is such a simple, but profitable, business model.
Unlike their competitors, it is apparent that MP recognizes that the old formula for success, “Location. Location. Location,” has become “Traffic. Traffic. Traffic.” Just like every other part of their business, MP takes the lead and shows affiliates in detail how to get visitors to their websites and turn them into customers. To help affiliates easily generate website traffic, MP has partnered with Jay Conrad Levinson, renowned small business marketing expert and author of the best-selling series of Guerilla Marketing books.
Mr. Levinson developed an innovative, easy-to-follow program so affiliates can generate all the traffic they need right from within their own community. Mr. Levinson’s expertise is clear – the program is so well designed that anyone can do it and build a nice, profitable business for him or herself. This program became the exclusive 2 Hour-a-Day, Step-by-Step Success Plan of Action that is sent to all Blowout Bargains and 24/7 Megamall affiliates.
“We’re excited that professionals such as Jay have recognized the ingenuity of our part-time businesses and have joined with us to help make them even better,” said Ms. Klotthor. “We’ll continue to work with such top experts to constantly improve our websites, services, and training.”
