The 3 Profit Activators In Any Business – Your Checklist

The Three Profit ActivatorsJay Abraham – the 21.7 billion Dollar Man and Highest Paid Marketing Consultant according to Forbes SUCCESS inc. simplifies How To Make Money in any business into “3 simple profit activators”

There are only 3 ways to make money inside of a business, and tapping into all 3 would help you earn and run a profitable business.

The three profit activators to make money inside of a business are :

1) Can you make more money in the business by getting more customers?

2) Can You Do repeat business with those customers?

3) Can You Sell higher ticket value items ( Products or services worth more than +$1000 per sale) to your customers?

Simple right?

then how come everyone is not doing this?

You can take any business opportunity and run them through this filter, and if it passes all three, you are in a long term profitable business and most definitely halfway to success.

What if it passes just the first 2?

The business can still be profitable but there is now a limit to how much money(Scaleable) you can earn long term.

Let me show you some examples and how you can use this checklist because in order to know what’s good, we must know what’s bad

Lets go through some ” business start up choices” and talk about what they don’t tell you.

Using YOUR Checklist

1) The 9-5 job9-5 Jobs

There are very profitable 9-5 jobs but when you run it through all three profit activators for you(as an employee), it would still fail the checklist.

Can you get more money if you get more customers? definitely not

Can you do repeat business? Definitely not

Can You sell high ticket items? Nope


As an employee, getting more customers gets your company more money and not you, and your company is the one doing repeat business with these customers and you most definitely can not sell higher ticket items.

2) Real estate flipping

Real Estate FlippingReal Estate Flipping is Quick-profit strategy in which you as an investor purchases real estate at a discount price and improves the property in order to resell at a much higher price.

This has been a very lucrative profit strategy in the past if when the housing market is doing really well. Let’s run it through our checklist.

Can you get more customer – Yes

Can you do repeat business with those customers? – No (rarely)

Can you sell higher ticket items – Yes

so this gets a 1 and a half out of 3

3) Regular Brick and Mortar business( a dying breed):

Brick and Mortar Business

Working with a regular brick and mortar business like Shoprite or Walmart.

Can You get more customers – yes

Can You do Repeat business – repeat business yes

Can You sell higher ticket products – no (you might sell something slightly higher like designer trousers as opposed to just regular trousers) and worst still you can only scale by reducing price(low ticket products)

Now that you and I have gone through some physical products, let’s talk of some slightly better options online and see if they pass all three of the profit activator checklist.

5) E com: shopify, Amazon:

Ecom: Amazon, ShopifyyCreating a shopify store is one of the raves right now if you can do it right or Hire Someone to build one for you.

It is an excellent way to generate passive income and it has made hundreds of thousands for people who have tried and succeeded at it and also has the added advantage of a low overhead cost.

I own and run a shopify store so i really looked forward to running it through the checklist so here it goes?

1) Can You make more money by getting more customers – Yes

2) Can you do repeat business with those customers – Yes

3) Can you sell higher ticket products to increase revenue – No

6) MLM – Multi Level Marketing

MLMEveryone has their say on MLM (Basically here, we do not like it) but it has proved profitable and others have made money of it.

Let’s leave that debate for another day and run it through the 3 profit activators to see if it is profitable and scale able.

1) Can You get more customers? – Yes

2) Can You do repeat business? – yes

3) Can You sell higher ticket products? – No

so This is are 2/3

You can take any business of your choice now and run them through this 3 profit activators and see if you have one on your hand that taps into all 3 profit activators as described by Jay Abraham.

Most of these businesses are profitable and a good source for generating passive income, but what if we can get a piece the pie from very profitable businesses that checks all three profit activators?

Do these Businesses exist?

Yes, these businesses exist and they are termed “High Leverage, High Ticket” businesses.

These are 4 core business models that the Dave Sharpe’s, Tai Lopez’s and Kevin David’s all use ( and still use ) to make lots of money. Let us take a look as some and how you can get a piece of the pie.

  • It must be a location independent business you can do from anywhere at anytime.
  • it must be online, with minimal overhead and start up headaches. Fast profits.
  • It must be “ELF” (Easy, Lucrative and fun) and not “HALF” ( Hard, Annoying, Lame and Frustrating)
  • It must have all 3 of “Jay Abrahams” Profit activators alive and well

Are you doing any of these yet and if you are not would you like to start?

Even if you have no idea where any of these means right now, There is a value ladder for you with all four core business models and let me show you how it goes.

You start from the first and the lowest entry into these which is affiliate marketing, and the right affiliate program would train you on how to do affiliate marketing properly, and then you start selling other peoples products.

In time, you can get better in your chosen niche(this is the beauty of affiliate marketing as you can build a niche around anything you love).

You can start creating your own digital products and selling those products. I know a guy who learnt to copyright and created a book on how to write the perfect proposals on upwork and this he sells over and over again.

You can start consulting and later go into sponsoring your own Masterminds and Events. I don’t know about you but this is a blueprint I have set for myself.

5 things to know before choosing an affiliate marketing opportunity:

things to know about affiliate marketing opportunitiesChoosing the right affiliate to promote should be done with all four core business models as your checklist.

Affiliate marketing is your very first step in this Value Ladder as you can do it without creating any of your own product(yet).

As such, picking the right affiliate product is a very big deal

You have to find companies with affiliate programs you can join that checks the four core business models you have just learnt.

Most Big companies don’t pay very high commissions to their affiliate.

With every affiliate program, you get links to promote.

All affiliate programs are not the same and picking the right one is as important as getting the best deal in real estate development.

5 things to check out for in an affiliate program are:

1) Product value: do they offer good products

2) Profit Margin: Is there a high enough margin on each sale?

3) Tracking: How long are there tracking good for? ( front end or lifetime)

4) Marketing materials : Do they have high converting sales videos?

5) Integrity : Does the affiliate program have a good reputation and have your best interest in mind

when all this are in place, you can do your affiliate business with less worry

like real estate, you make money when you find the best house

This applies to affiliate offers as well.

You can start making money passively by putting products online that sells for a commission.

In The Affiliate marketing business, the difference between those who survive and thrive is the training and program.

WA is a right choice as it provided the step-by-step training and offers a variety of affiliate program too. What you need to do is find out the affiliate programs that suit you, and you can start selling the products without owning it to earn the commission. Thank you for the great post.

  6. Hello there, thank you for sharing this amazing post on the four core online business models. So I have seen all those other business models and I almost got into MLM but I am happy I didn’t.

    My favourite is affiliate marketing and that’s exactly what I want to venture into because it is beginner friendly. Although it will take some time and hardwork, o am willing to wait and put in the hardwork and money needed. So with time and experience, I’d probably make my own digital product to teach people and share my success story 😊. And with more time and experience, I’d probably go into the last two core business models.


  7. Hello Chiadika, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. I am glad you explained everything about affiliate marketing because it is truly one of the best online business a man can start without too much investment. I plan to show this article to my friend who is tired of her 9-5 job, can she contact you if she needs help?
