This article was orginally written to teach my
members how to get ISP clients,How to Earn with the Secret of Persistance Articles but you can use
it for almost any business that you are in.

How the secret of persistance can help earn high profits as
your own Internet Service Provider ISP.

So how do you actually get hundreds of clients to pay you
every month for you to host their websites, email services,
domain names, and other internet services?

I will reveal the secrets in these series of letters.

The principal of persistance seems too obvious, but therein
lies the secret. It is like laying diamonds all over a
parking lot. People would assume they were broken glass
because if it was so valuable others would have already
picked them up.

I used this secret in my small hometown of Sheridan,
Wyoming, (see

This is how I built a janitorial business in this little
town. You will see how these principals can easily be
converted to building your own ISP business.

Upon first examination there were many reasons that I
could not succeed:

1. With a population of 13,000 people, it would seem my
opportunties were limited for building a business.

2. Worse yet my chosen field of business, janitorial, had
an abundance of worthy competitors.

3. My competitors were well enforced with uniforms, brand
new painted trucks, powerful equipment, and a trained work
force for cleaning and marketing, and an extensive
advertising budge.

4. There were only 1000 businesses total in Sheridan, Wyoming,
and many of those were home based and would not require a
janitorial service.

5. We were in the middle of a national recession, and it
did not seem that 1981 was a good time to start a business.

5. I had no advertising budget, no equipment, very little
professional training with cleaning systems and chemicals,
no uniforms, a beat up old truck, and $17.00 worth of pop

This surely was a formula for failure.

But there was one more thing that I had: Persistance.

My plan was to make one index card for every business in
town, and then to contact every single business one time
per month.

The first time I contacted every business, just by chance
I found 3 people unhappy at that moment with their
janitorial contractor and decided to give me a try. I
found $300.00 per month worth of work.

After contacting the businesses I would separate the cards
into these catagories:

1. Those that I felt would never have use for a janitorial

2. Those that already had a janitorial service but did not
want to change to a new service.

3. Those that did not have a janitorial service but could
probably use one.

4. Those that had a janitorial service but indicated that
they may change services in the future.

I continued to call catagories 2 to 4 one time every month
picking up a new contract or two each time. I always made
notes on the cards to refresh my memory, and after 6 months
of doing this most of the local business owners started to
get to know who I was.

I overcame the fact that I did not have a advertising budget
for radio, direct mail, or newspaper by going directly to
the person that could hire me each and every month.

After a few months I had enough money to buy a uniform for
a more professional look and rented a small office for $50.00
per month. I also printed some business cards with my new
address and business name. Now when I visited the owners
or called them on the telephone I had a place to refer them
to. But remember, I did not let the fact earlier that I did
not have these things stop me from persuing the business

By being persistant I consistantly got "lucky" by calling
just at the time a business owner was considering a new
janitorial service. But persistance is what created this
luck for me. If I had not been calling every month I would
never have become "lucky."

After two years of following this system I had obtained
$18,000.00 in monthly contracts. After watching me grow
for those two years, two of the three major competitors
offered to sell their business to me.

I suspect they started panicing after they saw me chipping
away at their businesses and consistently taking their

They did not know the secret that I did for if they had
they could easily have counter attacked me using the same

You can use this secret of persistance. You can even use
this same method of contacting prospects on a systematical


1. Using your computer or index cards, (computers are much
easier of course), start contacting either via telephone
or in person door door, your local businesses.

2. Ask them who is in charge of their website. Ask
questions and take notes.

3. Offer to host their existing or future website.

4. They may not be ready for you to server them at this
time, but contact then again in 1 month just to let them
know you are still available.

5. Divide your cards into these catagories:

a. Those that you believe would never have use for
internet services.

b. Those that already have internet services but do not
want to change to a new service.

c. Those that do not have internet services but could
probably use them.

d. Those that have internet services but indicated that
they may change services in the future.

Then contact catagories b to d every month. Of course keep
adding new contacts each month.

Using this secret called "persistance" soon you will be
building your own Internet Service business to great heights!
