SO, YOU Wanna Make Money Online, Huh? - My 1000th POST - A Blueprint For You THAT WORKS!!!!

20 replies
Hi Warriors,

Wow, ONE THOUSAND POSTS, its taken a few years of being a member here and I want to THANK all Warriors for the opportunity to be a part of this CRAZY MOVEMENT!

I like to think I give back all of the time but because it is my 1000th post, I thought I would take a little time this morning to outlay a blueprint for anyone yet to make a dime online, a blueprint I know works, because it has worked on many ventures for me! ; )

Best of all, YOU can start TODAY!

So, if you are yet to make a dime or want a new project to make another stream of income, read on and at the end, TAKE ACTION on it!

Ok, this format is arguably the most used format in the IM world because anyone can do this and its free to do, other than a domain and hosting. That format being AFFILIATE MARKETING!

Step 1:

Ok, affiliate marketing for anyone BRAND NEW, is basically selling other peoples products and gaining a commision on them each time you sell one.

The easiest way to do this is to pick a product on Clickbank, build a landing page promoting that product with the end goal being, to drive traffic to the salespage of the product and make sales!

Picking a Product:

Picking the right product is crucial, it needs to convert and there needs to be a demand. When choosing a product to promote, I like to focus on niches that have desperate buyers.

"People in need of a solution RIGHT NOW!"

In my experience there is nothing more immediate than vanity or health issues:

Weight Loss
Panic Attacks
Excessive Sweating
Penis Enlargement

I am sure you get the picture. I always focus on niches that the buyer is in need of a solution due to a health or vanity issue, that affects their life. IMO, there is nothing stronger than this!

Clickbank is packed full of products that offer these solutions!

If you visit the marketplace and type in the above keywords, you will see a wealth of products and they are all BUYING NICHES!

Choosing a Product:

Ok, choosing a product again is crucial. You don't want to drive hordes of traffic to a product if it doesn't convert!

Now, in essence, it can be hard to know what converts the best without trying. You can look at the Gravity and Sales Referred % to see what is selling, that is a great way, but there are also products that have low stats that convert better.

For example, I have been focusing on one of the above niches recently and decided to test a product that didn't have gravity, and it sold like hotcakes!!!!!

I chose the product with 2 things in mind:

Did the salespage convert me? Was I intrigued about the offer?

Was it actually a salespage and not a glorified OPTIN PAGE! (You see many salespages with high gravity on CB have optins flashing up etc. IMO this is a sales KILLER! If you send traffic to a salespage and an optin pops up with a free course, they are 9 out of 10 times going to optin first before buying, and you lose the sale!)

If these 2 things are to my liking, I will consider promoting! Remember, in most niches, there are more than 1 product, so you can always switch your product focus further down the line if it fails to do the business!

Step 2:

Landing page

Ok, to build a real business, we need a website. For less than $20 you can have this, even if you are a complete NEWB to the internet!

Domain name - $8 or so

Hosting - $10 a month or so

Wordpress - FREE

If you want to take IM seriously, then invest $20 in a website. By having your own presence, YOU control it and you can build it around a KEYWORD RICH domain name, which is crucial to ranking in the search engines for later!

Domains & Research

Ok, as we have a product picked and niche chosen, we need to find some keywords which we can grab a domain name around and focus our marketing around!

We do this with:


If you are promoting a "Weight Loss Program", then ranking for a keyword like "Weight Loss" is pointless! Not only will it be EXTREMELY difficult but it isn't a buying keyword.

Somebody typing in "Weight Loss" could just be looking for weight loss information for a school report or weight loss information for their dog, its too broad!

We need to dig down!

"How To Lose 8 Pounds In A Week!"

Thats more of a buying keyword, someone wanting specific information that in essence the product you are promoting could offer!

"How To Lose Belly Fat Quickly"

Again, a keyword a weight loss program you are promoting could help with!

These are more BUYING keywords, people looking for specific information and solutions!!!

You need to make a list of all of the buying keywords you can find, take your time and DIG DEEP!

Next, we look at competition!

To work out if a keyword is a keeper, do this:

Type it into Google and record this information:

How many competing sites for the broad term types in!

How many competing sites for the term in "QUOTES"! (You are looking for less than 20k ideally)

How many competing sites with the term typed in like below:


This basically tells you how many competing sites have the keyword within the title!!! If this is less than 500, I target the term if the following is apparent:

With the broad term typed in again, can you see any articles already on page one or any web 2.0 propertes on page 1, i.e:

Hubpages, Squidoo, Youtube, Yahoo Answers, etc.

This tells us we can rank our articles there too!


Ok, takes a little time, and if keywords are too competitive, move on and research another. Keyword research is SO important, as we are going to be targeting specific keywords to generate traffic, which turns into SALES!

Once we have 10 keywords, go to Godaddy or another domain registrar and find a domain matching a keyword without hyphens!

You also want either a .COM or .ORG!

If they are not available, try another keyword until you find a .COM or .ORG!

Once you have one we need to set Wordpress up on our new hosting and point our domain. As this post is running on, I use Hostgator and they have an instant chat, they will talk you through how to do it all!

Also, YOUTUBE is awesome, search for tutorial vids on there if you are stuck!

Once, uploaded, search Google for "FREE WP THEMES" and install one of those onto your wordpress site!

Again, use YOUTUBE if you need a tutorial!

The next thing you want to do is install the "All in one SEO Plugin" into your Wordpress blog, again this is real easy, jsut follow a tutorial on YOUTUBE!

This allows us to add page titles and descriptions to our blog which you need to target your researched keywords. This will allow Google to see what our blog is!!!!


We now need to write content for our website!

There are many ways to do this and here is one way!

Write up an unbiased review regarding the product you are promoting. Literally take your time and don't rush it. Talk about the PROS & CONS, the price, does it have a guarantee? who has it helped etc. What you thought about it etc.

Request a review copy from the owner of the product you are promoting to help you, they should all provide one if you mentione you want to write and honest review for promotion!

Now add a call to action at the end of the review, for example:

"Are you tired of being overweight? Kick that spare tyre into touch today, like many others have done before you by CLICKING HERE!"

This will be your affiliate link to your chosen clickbank product!

Once we have a review we can drive traffic to our blog where our review is posted!


Traffic Generation!


Ok, it is all about hard work now. Put the work in now and over time things get easier and more passive as your articles start working for you.

Write up articles on your researched keywords remembering to use the keyword in the title of the article and throughout the article 2-3 times. Aim for a 400 word article, this seems to work best from my testing!

Write at least one article and submit it to Ezinearticles everyday!

This will drive traffic DAILY!!!

If you can write more than 1 a day, do it! When you run out of keywords, either write new articles targeting the same keywords or research even more keywords to write more articles on!

Your Resource;

With each article, you have the chance to drive traffic to your blog which in turn can drive traffic to your chosen product, so the resource box, or link box is crucial.

Don't just get lazy and put:

"Want More Info On Weight Loss, Click Here"

"Joe Bloggs is a weight loss expert and has more tips over at his blog which you can look at by CLICKING HERE!"

Sell your readers more, and play on the issue i.e:

"If you ARE OVERWIGHT and have been searching for a solution to help you LOSE WEIGHT SUCCESSFULLY. How would you like to find out the very best TECHNIQUES to help you kick that extra lard to the curb, once and for all?

From this point on your life could never be the same again, find out more by CLICKING HERE"

Obviously link it to your REVIEW!!

I hope you can see the difference!!!!!

Once your articles have been approved at EZA, submit them to the following:


And any other article directories you can find!

Just submit them as they are!

Continue this process over and over, every day!

As added promotion goes, once your articles are approved at EZA, social bookmark the URLs as well. This builds backlinks to your articles!

Take your blog RSS FEED which can be found usually by typing in:

Submit this to RSS Feed directories!

Search "RSS FEED DIRECTORY LIST" in Google and you will find 100s!

Yahoo Answers

Create an account over at Yahoo Answers and start answering questions related to your product or niche. Now you can put a link to a website in the source box over there under your answer.

Now what I do is link an article I have written rather than my review blog. At the end of the day, it leads to my review blog anyway, and it gives an added backlink to our articles.

We are writing articles to rank in the search engines to pick up organic traffic so backlinks help us to rise up through the rankings.

Try to answer 5 questions a day if possible. Be informative and don't blatantly sell your product or you will end up BANNED!


Continue all of the above for 30 days and you will make money and sales!

I have just realised how long this post has turned out, so I am going to stop typing now and let you get on with it! This works, it is easy to do and anyone can start this NOW. This is how I mae my first dollar online and this formula is still used by me and I am sure many others right now, today!

Take action!!!!

If you start taking action and find you hit a technical roadblock, like installing a blog, or installing hosting etc. JUST ASK the question on the forum or visit YOUTUBE and watch a tutorial!

This is what I did!!!!

Once again, Thanks Warriors, let's keep this MOVEMENT going and here's to the next 1000 posts! ; )

As always, Go Get 'Em Peeps!

    Hello mate..

    Congrats on your 1000th post. You have a good blueprint set out thanks for sharing that!

    I do something similar to you...but all my articles go on my own site first, then get syndicated to article directories, as well as other web 2.0 properties like squidoo and hub pages etc... The web 2.0 will be focused on my main keyword I want my website to rank for.

    Keep up the great work mate...

    Yes I do that too, I write seperate articles for my blogs which is actually another step to the above but it was going to end up being a huge post others may not read.

    As far as submitting to EZA first, this is too generate quick traffic and quick money which is what the aim is here initially, especially when you are new to IM. The longer it takes to see success the sooner quitting creeps in!

    Thanks for the post. I think I'm going to switch focus to writing articles shortly if I can still see after my dr appointment this morning. So far I've been working on getting registered on all the web 2.0 social bookmark sites to bookmark my home page to start with.

    Can you social bookmark your social bookmarks on other social bookmarking sites and any benefit to doing so?

    Grats on your 1000th post and great step by step instructions there. That's pretty much exactly what I do to make money online.

    If you're not making money online, don't worry to much about the specifics. Do exactly what GoGetta has said and you will make money. Get to the point of writing 5 articles a day pointing to converting affiliate offers and article directories will provide you with enough traffic to make a good income.

    Just an added tip, take an extra week and create your own product. Do this exact marketing for it and all of a sudden you have leverage. Set up an affiliate program on clickbank. When you see some income from other people selling your product, you are set.

    Yes Travis you are right, you seem to be following the EXACT business model I am concentrating on right now. Building products, doing the same things and eventually others will sell your products for you!

    But, the same rules apply! Promotion is always the same!

      Adding PLR as a free bonus is a great way to increase sales. Most of us have hundreds of PLR on our computer just sitting there. Use them.

    This is great advice for newbies. Very similar to what I did when I first started out. If you are new to affiliate marketing this plan works! I recommend a complete article marketing startegy for newbies, because it is a great way to get some targeted traffic.
