when I first started online I was only able to get started thanks to ezinearticles and squidoo.
As the internet evolves so should your methods.
here is a method I taught to a few close friends and some family members that took them from an absolute marketing noob to making all over 100 dollars a day, with just a few hours a week.
1. find a niche using clickbank.com (nothing revolutionary yet)
2. Find out what keywords people are typing in in youtube https://ads.youtube.com/keyword_tool
3. find related videos in the niche with high views counts
4. paste the video url into the video url section in the keyword tool
you will come up with a huge list of tags related to the video, use all of those for tags in your video.
5. pull some powerful benefits from the sales page you are promoting, and turn those into your video titles.
6. go to stock.xchng - the leading free stock photography site to get some free stock photos,
you want to find pictures that clearly represent the end result that the market is trying to achieve, if they want to date successfully shw a picture of a couple kissing, if they want to satisfy a women in bed show a picture of a happy women laying in bed smoking a cigarette..IMPORTANT show the end result the market wants to acheive IMPORTANT
7. Watermark the video with url and also with a call to action. for example "Bring Home a women Tonight TakerHome.com. it is ok to use the word free and it is encouraged because on youtube people are not in the buying frame of mind.
8. set up a lead capture page with weebly.com A plain white will do, but be 100% sure you use video. since they came from a video site you do not want to interupt the flow from video to text.
after they opt in direct them right to the sales page, also create a minimum of 7 follow up emails talking about the product you are promoting.
9. clearly state in the video what you are giving them and why.
10. make 5 videos a day, short 1-2 minute videos that's it.
be sure to actually give away some valuable tip in each video.
I would say do 5 videos a day until you are up to 100
so about 20 days the reason is so that you can set these up in your free time anytime you have around an hour to spare each day.
if you really want to get hardcore google search "traffic Geyser free 30 day trial" where you can find a free 30 day trial.
I have taught this method only to a close group of family and friends and all with similar results after 20 days they were all making between 60-120 a day consistently ever since.
the holidays are coming so get cracking.
