best most effective way to make money as a semi noob

5 replies
I've been around the block and sick of all the scammy misleading products that don't work. doesn't give you the info needed until you get on inside and on and on.

I realize there's no easy or rather one right, even wrong way to make money. My thing is if I can avoid email marketing, having a website if at all possible then fantastic. I'm not looking to rank sites and do seo, ecommerce. I know it doesn't leave me with much.

I'm not apposed to creating videos, just a matter of finding the right piece of software, and whatever else.

I've looked high and low for different things. Just looking for something that I feel I can do AND see results with and not toy with the idea of having to get another.......sigh job.

If anyone has any suggestions, methods or just whatever I'm open and wouldn't mind seeing

    Two years ago you posted something similar - what have you done or tried since then? What methods of IM have you pursued/leanred/practiced?

    There is a perception among 'newbies' that you can eliminate anything you don't want to learn or do - and still build a business or make money online. Those who post here as 'newbies' and end up making good money online are those marketers willing to do whatever is needed to build a business income.

    Not talk about it - or conjecture about it - or set limitations for what they are willing to do....the newbies who succeed are those who dig in and do the work. There is no substitute for DOING. While it's true that having your own business provides opportunities for time off and for doing what you please - those are rewards AFTER the work of building a business has been done.

    I can avoid email marketing, having a website if at all possible then fantastic. I'm not looking to rank sites and do seo, ecommerce. I know it doesn't leave me with much.
    Ya think? You can make videos and post them on youtube - but what are you going to sell? How are you going to promote them? What would be the point if you have no way to send video viewers to a sales page or site or product? If that's what you want to do - what have you done to create a plan for doing it?

    In a job interview - do you give a potential employer a list of things you are not willing to do in the job? I doubt it - so why would you limit your potential when the goal is to work for yourself?

    My guess is that after buying many 'make money online easy' products and reading sales pages and success stories - you know more than you realize. Where would you be now had you started two years ago by doing some of those things you don't want to do? Where will you be two years from now?

    I have been where you have been and yes you think you do not want to do the work and you do not need a website or an email list.
    As you have been online for quite some time then you would have heard the saying that the money is in the list. If it is not on your list then it is in someone elses list.
    You have eliminated quite a bit but you need to be realistic. If you want an income from the internet you need a list to market to.
    You can get sucked in to a lot of programs that say you don't need a website and you don't need a list and we provide you with this and that and yes we fall for that because we want the easy button.
    Reality check....There is no easy button...BUT if you put in the work now it will pay off in the long run.
    Stop thinking you can't do things and start saying you will do whatever it takes.
    Things do not come in can'ts they come in cans.
    Start building your list now and you will be paid handsomely in the future.
    More importantly if you have purchased products and programs pick one and take massive action.
    This is the best time ever to be starting an online business

    If you don't want to do email marketing , website SEO and other things you mentioned, It's may seems impossible to make money online.

    But You can do TWO things to bypass and make a living online.

    1. You can start YouTube channel focusing on problems and with your video solve those problems. In the description you can promote related beneficial course or software.

    2. Use Your own facebook profile as profile funnel. Set up your facebook profile and target your audience from different groups . Provide value , people will visit your profile and as your profile is a funnel , they will literally ask you to buy or help.

    The second one is best to try. And its awesome as it gives huge results very fast. This is called attraction marketing.

    Why do you want to avoid email marketing?

    I've been doing it for 19 years and have no plan to ever stop. It has one of the highest (if not the highest) ROI of any marketing method.

    Email is a distribution channel that no one can take away from you because you own the list (which is a real asset). Where most other channels you have no real control of because you're just a user of it and rules could change or you could lose access and then your income comes to a halt.

    It's hard to beat being able to drive your own traffic and follow up / promote additional offers at very little cost.

    My core business is monetizing email using affiliate / CPA offers. I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross-promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $20-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight sales. For them, mass appeal is still the number one thing I look for and I also look for one of the following...

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, I mainly promote non-PPL offers on the backend.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    So basically the real reason I heavily promote PPL offers because they provide the path of least resistance to generating conversions / $$$ and converting the data into cash-producing assets.

    Something to think about.
