I'm shocked... It's been almost 2 years I've been online and I've noticed that it's only in the last 3-5 months that I've actually started to make a good amount of money.
So I've decided to share some information that might help many of you starting out and will hopefully "shortcut" your way to achieving some level of success online.
I know first hand that if you've recently discovered this unbelievable opportunity to make money online your sometimes left high and dry staring at your computer screen and scratching your head asking yourself what you should be doing to next...
So here are the simple steps you should be doing...
#0 - Go to ClickBank and find a good product that has a proven record to sell and get your affiliate link.
#1 - Buy a domain related to the niche/market you are in.
#2 - Get yourself some kind of autoresponder (Aweber, IContact, GetResponse are all good!)
#5 - Create a Squeeze page, or "landing page" ... (the uglier the better!)... and start collection subscribers, or "leads"!
#4 - Create or find a report or create a video of your teaching something that you can giveaway as an ethical bribe for the optin.
#4.5 - Create at least 15 followup emails that either pitch or provide some kind of valuable content for the subscriber.
#5 - Start sending traffic using PPC, Blog commenting, Articles, Twitter, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking, Forum posting. (SEO will take you too much time in competitive markets unless you are experienced in keyword research).
#6 - Make sure you track EVERYTHING using applications such as Google Analytics...
What ever traffic generation strategy that is converting the most subscribers for your the best thing to do is start spending more time doing it and do MORE of it!
If this processes takes you more than a WEEK you have FAILED!
Yes, you are taking too long!...
Also, if you do not know how to do PPC! DON'T WAIT... watch EVERY Google video Tutorial there is available for free! If you want more in debt training pickup Perry's Marshal book and read it on the weekend and launch a campaign by Monday!
If you don't make a penny doing this GREAT! At least you will have gained experience in creating this process that is proven to make money. Accept the failure and move on refine the campaign pick a different niche/market or change the product up!
Believe me failing is MUCH better than waiting!
Hope this was valuable to you, have a great day!
