About the Creator of Creating Sustainable Income with E-Commerce
Lee Fairbanks is an award-winning journalist, playwright and author of three books. However his primary source of income comes not from his writing but from an international business which he established from his home in Canada in 1990.
As a business consultant from 1995-97, he presented speeches and workshops to thousands of people on three continents. His written training materials were translated into six languages, and helped people create incomes that continue to grow today.
In 2003 he created a second training system, promoting new technology in the health care field, which supported new income growth for people in Canada and Europe.
In 2016, Mr. Fairbanks has created a new program for the Internet Age. It is available here for free.
In this five-part course entitled Creating Sustainable Incomes with E-Commerce, Mr. Fairbanks will show you how to start and build your own business from your home or office. Here is Mr. Fairbanks.
Hello and welcome to our written course on Creating a Sustainable Income with E-Commerce. If you prefer, you can watch the course online. Part One can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgfOZ3mPF8E.
In the course we will cover five major topics:
Part 1. Economic overview and e-commerce introduction
Part 2. Choosing the right company to partner with
Part 3. How income is initially earned
Part 4. Getting started
Part 5. Pathway to Sustainable Income
I’ll be the first to admit that some of the information in Part One may be boring. Some may feel that you know all this already, and some may not really care about the macroeconomic picture. However I must encourage you to stay with us throughout this introduction.
I believe it is essential that you have at least a little understanding and appreciation of the political, social, demographic and economic forces that have combined to put us in our current predicament. And more importantly how these forces have also created a tremendous opportunity for those who are able to see the big picture.
In this first part I will try to provide that understanding. This will strengthen your commitment to an alternative financial future for yourself, as well as those that you introduce.
It’s not all Doom and Gloom
We begin with an economic overview. We’ll look at the Doom and Gloom first, then the Silver Lining.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that times are tough today. Good jobs are hard to find and even harder to keep. Our governments have committed us to massive trillion-dollar debts that are crippling our economy – and your take home pay.
Governments borrow in the out-dated belief that our economies will continue to grow at a pace that is higher than inflation, but mature economies are not growing at the rate they did when they were being built.
In the Post-World War Two era it was common to have annual growth rates as high as 5, 6 or 7%, but in the past two decades economic growth has ranged from stagnant to a high of only 1 or 2%. Given the rate of inflation and the expansion of our population, this translates into negative growth. There is less money to go around.
You simply can’t count on government fiscal policies to provide you with future income security. You can count however, on higher taxes and fewer services. Not to mention higher food costs, higher utility costs, the list goes on and on.
Government balance sheets are a mess, but most of us are not doing any better on a personal level. We are awash in public and private debt.
The dog-eat-dog business world is suffering from an epidemic of greed and corruption fuelled by questionable politics and powerful special interest groups.
Add it all up and you can see that there is little reason to have faith in the future of our current economic model. There are going to be more losers than winners in the coming years.
Here’s how Don Drummond, the Stauffer-Dunning Fellow at the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University and a former chief economist at TD Bank explains it:
“The biggest point is this: the world is entering a period of sustained lower growth. Everybody seems to have missed that. You wonder how many times it takes for people to get with that program.”
There are Massive Opportunities
But it’s not all bad news. There are massive opportunities for those who are open minded and ready to accept the new reality. Let’s leave today’s bleak reality behind, and move on to your opportunity for a better future.
Albert Einstein once said “we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them”. And yet that’s what most of us try to do.
It all starts with you. To change your future, you must start to see things differently. You must be open minded, open to a new way of thinking, and a new way of working. “Same old, same old,” is not working anymore.
People are discovering that the old plan, that is to get a good education and get a good job with a big company or government office, just isn’t working today. And given the world’s economic deficits, and the transfer of manufacturing jobs to the Developing World, it’s not going to work any time soon.
Before we look at some more numbers, I should point out that this income plan includes a little excitement along the way, with the potential for personal recognition at glitzy international conventions, opportunity to travel and the satisfaction of helping others. People who are successful, say it is simply a lot of fun, once you get past the initial learning curve.
Let’s look at how E-Commerce fits into this new economic model.
Who is Winning and who is Losing?
Who is winning and who is losing in the traditional economy? There are three main segments to our economy: Manufacturing, Management and Distribution. While manufacturing and management jobs are declining in G7 countries, distribution – which is simply the moving of products to consumers – continues to grow.
Every product purchased in your country must be handled by someone who lives in your country, whether it is in a storefront, or delivered by courier. And as our population expands, more and more products are bought. You are on the losing side of market forces if you are in manufacturing or management. You can be on the winning side if you are in Distribution. And the fastest growth in distribution is through E-commerce.
There are three different types of e-commerce. The first is simply companies moving their products online. Virtually every company today has an online presence so that you can buy their products and have them shipped to your home. Examples of this would be Amazon and iTunes.
The second type of e-commerce is often called the Shared Economy. In this business model you can participate as a full partner. Names you might recognize include eBay, Uber, and airBnB. These three companies require you to provide a product and they merely provide the marketing support.
The third type of e-commerce combines these two. They provide the products, and you provide the marketing support. These companies share the wealth with you. To create a sustainable income using e-commerce you must be participating with one of these companies.
There are now hundreds of companies offering this shared economic model. Among these hundreds there are a handful which have exceeded $1 billion in sales per year and have proven themselves over many years. It is these companies that offer sustainable income.
How can you participate?
So how can you participate in this form of E-commerce, right from your desk, laptop, tablet or phone?
Creating Sustainable Incomes is a simple program. Become a customer of our partner company and you become eligible to share in its growth. Introduce others and the company will reward you with a percentage of their orders when they become customers. And the company will send you money every time your customer re-orders. And it’s all done online.
What do you have to do? If you choose to work with us you will simply introduce people to the concept, then send them the link to this course, and let us do the talking for you. Anyone who finishes the first three parts of this course will have all the information they need to make a decision as to whether they want to participate. They can simply purchase products for themselves, or they can join you and create their own sustainable income. Either way, you will be rewarded for expanding the company’s business, month after month, year after year.
For those who wish to create an income, Parts 4 and 5 of our course provide the training you need to get started.
You don’t have to be a salesperson. You don’t have to be a marketing specialist. You don’t have to be a public speaker. You don’t have to keep an inventory. You just have to introduce them to this course and let the information speak for you. Can it really be any more simple than that?
Now why would billion-dollar companies use this money-sharing method to find new customers? Again, it’s simple. Who better to introduce a new customer than an existing customer? Someone who is using the products themselves?
How loyal would a customer be, if they were being paid to continue to use the products? I’ll explain that concept in Part 3, but let me point out that these companies have been built on this money-sharing principle. That is how they became multi-billion-dollar global corporations. This is not a new plan for them, they have a long track record of making this work for both sides.
An Old Principle redone for Modern Times
Think about it. The principle behind this is nothing new really. We recommend products all the time. Books, movies, restaurants, websites, games, songs, cars, holidays, wine, food, you name it, we are always sharing our thoughts with others.
In fact, Neilsen Research says that 92% of consumers trust recommendations from friends above all other forms of advertising. So it’s both good business and good friendship to share your experiences with others.
The difference is that most of the companies you recommend don’t pay you for your referrals. They take your word-of-mouth advertising and they keep the profits you create for themselves and their shareholders.
The companies I’m talking about have simply connected an income flow to your natural tendency to tell others about things you enjoy. They share the profits. I believe it is a more ethical way to build a business.
And now you can make that recommendation to the online world, even to complete strangers, instead of just telling a few friends in person.
As you introduce more customers, your income grows. The company handles all product orders, payments and delivery and deposits your cheque to your bank account. Customers place their own orders online or by phone. This is E-commerce at its simplest. As a bonus, you will buy your products at member’s prices – often as much as 50% below retail.
How much can you earn?
How much can you earn? Well that depends on you. Most customers simply like the products and are happy to be buying at the lowest prices. They do not even participate in the referral system. Not everyone has what it takes to be successful.
On the other hand, a small number of people earn a lot of money by building large referral networks over time. Your results and your income will likely fall somewhere between these two extremes. It largely depends on you and how much time and effort you put into expanding your customer network.
We will show you verified average incomes in Part Three. You will be more than impressed by the incomes earned by successful people who apply themselves.
So this brings us to the end of Part One. If the idea of creating a Sustainable Income by partnering with a billion-dollar corporation in a rapidly growing industry interests you, ask the person who sent you to this website for the link to Part Two of our course.
In Part Two, I will explain the critical factors that determine a good company in this industry, and recommend a specific company for you, one that I have worked with for the past 25 years.
Whether you join us or not, I wish you the best of luck with your current and future endeavours.
