My 28 Day Rinse and Repeat Plan To Huge Amounts of Laser Targeted Traffic

274 replies
Oh the warrior forum...so many new internet marketers looking for the right path to take to reach millions of dollars and some just trying to make rent next week. I was there. I know the feeling most of you are going through not seeing any success.

I thought today I would share my 30 day strategy that I have used on every single one of my authority niche sites. I've also been teaching my friends this strategy and now 3 of them are full time internet marketers. So, I know this works. There is no secret to any of this. It's simple stuff.

The main thing you must realize before you read anymore is that it's all about consistency. Search engine rankings, traffic generation, etc are all about consistency. In the beginning, if you want to see results sooner then later then you MUST do your required work everyday. If you follow the exact steps I am about to show you, then you will make money.

This guide is about traffic generation. If you want to make money from the traffic, then you better have some sort of sales funnel set up. Either create a product or be an affiliate. It doesn't matter because you will make money either way. I like to start with an affiliate product in a niche until I have some good traffic coming, then I create a product. In a matter of how long it takes you to create the product, you just doubled/tripled your income.

On to the guide.

Day 1
  • Write 7 Articles (have them automatically posted 1 a day using wordpress)
  • Create accounts for social media sites Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare (whatever else you like...I only use these)
  • Create 30 days of social media messages (5 messages per day)
  • Sign up to hootsuite.com and upload all 30 days of messages to be sent to those social media sites automatically.
  • Add 50-100 followers, friends, etc on all social media sites (from now on when I say SM duties, you know this is what I'm referring to)
Day 2
  • Record 7 Podcasts (just read what you wrote for the 7 articles the day before as material...this takes maybe 30 minutes)
  • SM duties
  • Find 5-10 popular forums in your niche...make accounts...pretty up accounts with info, pictures, links, etc.
  • Find 5-10 other bloggers in your niche and contact them about link swaps/guest post swaps
Day 3
  • Create 7 Videos (use the exact podcast recording with a screen capture of a slideshow for each video)
  • SM Duties
Day 4
  • Turn 7 articles into PDFs
  • SM Duties
  • Backlink Duties (From now on when I say BL duties you know it's referring to the list below)
    • Post 1 article to directories (I use ArticleBot, manual submit to EZA and GoArticles, spin twice and post to Buzzle and iSnare)
    • 5-10 relevant blog comments on related blogs
    • 1-10 forum posts per forum you found
    • Submit 1 video with TUbeModul
    • Submit 1 podcasts to radio websites (I usually make an iTunes channel for each niche...there is a WSO on it somewhere I think)
    • submit 1 PDF to scribd
    • Optional : 5-10 backlinks from high PR sites (I used to use angela's backlinks...but rarely do this anymore...it's been unnecessary for results)
    • Social Bookmark everything with OnlyWire
Day 5
  • Write 3 press releases (1 about your website, 1 about something you are giving away, 1 about your product you're selling)

RINSE AND REPEAT

What this does is generate huge amounts of content quickly. It spreads it all across the web so there are so many ways to see your site it's sickening.

After about 3 months, your content is going to be old enough for google to give it some love. You will start to see so many random visitors from keywords in your articles that you didn't target it's ridiculous.

The longest day is about 6 hours of work when you do it all yourself. Your going to average 3-4 hours. Outsource and you could average 20 minutes of work.

Now, the trick to getting big money from this is to perfect your sales funnel, article structure, keyword choice, squeeze page...pretty much your process. Even with a crappy system, you could see good money coming in.

I suggest as soon as you have enough money coming in to outsource. All of the above steps can be outsourced...every single one of them. I suggest making a screen capture video of the exact process you take of submitting and creating everything...then you have something to send your outsourcers and you know they will get it right the first time.

I like to add doing a once a week webinar/teleseminar in there too. It builds authority alot quicker and the viral effect of giving webinars rocks. Only takes an 30 minutes - hour and you can just rehash topics you've written articles on.

As you can see this is all about consistency. My latest niche site has been up for 28 days and I had 320 visitors yesterday...that's without any search engine traffic too. SERPS usually take 3-6 months to kick in then you just have traffic out the ying yang.

Things to help you get better results with this system:

  • Learn how to effectively write articles
  • Learn how to effectively do keyword research
  • Learn how to effectively target keywords in articles, videos, podcast descriptions
  • Learn how to use a website to direct your viewer to your sales funnel (good squeeze page, good video presentation, etc)
  • Learn how to email market well (All my content sends my viewers to my squeeze page which gets them on my email list...this is the only way I sell things..it might take a week or two longer to get a sale from the visitor but it increases my conversion rate from around 3% to 6%...doubled income)
  • Learn how to network (guest posts, link swaps, and social marketing platforms can bring you thousands of visitors a day alone when done correctly)
  • Learn how to position yourself as an authority (the articles, videos, podcasts, webinars, press releases, forum posts all help this a lot...don't act like a new guy in your industry though)
  • Don't be afraid to take a day off (even though this is a 28 day plan, you don't have to do it in 28 days. You can spread this over 3 months if you want. The results won't come as quickly, but they will come.)
Okay, that's enough for me. I haven't posted about internet marketing in a while. I think I was getting the shakes. I've been working with too many small businesses that aren't even ready to learn this stuff...guess that's why they pay me the big bucks to hire someone else to do it .

You can do this.

      Very many thanks for this advice,
      A great concise plan to follow.
      Quite a formidable list of actions to carry out.
      Maybe one should look to the outsourcing at an earlier stage. As one puts together the content of the plan. Leading to the rinse-wash of the never-stop part.

      And that's why 99% of people that get into this fail. That's why I failed for 2 years. I didn't have the money to outsource. I was lazy. I had the know how, but that's not going to do much without the work.

      I don't do one step of this anymore. I have teams of people doing this for me. It took me 60 days of this to get to the point where I could outsource everything.

      You're right though. Most aren't going to follow through with this plan that is laid out step by step in front of them...for free. They will buy the next product that Frank Kern promotes 12 days in a row or get all happy in their pants finding out how much they can make by creating small niche sites by the millions. In the end, that same 99% will stop before it really can take off just like they've done in the past.

        I'm going to chime in here, Travis, if you don't mind...

        Some of you might remember the contest that took place around the end of last year. Four packages of resources, coaching, etc. were awarded, and Travis was selected for one of these packages. I was one of the people contributing consulting.

        Over the last seven months or so, I've watched Travis go from struggling to successful and confident, teaching others what he's learned. One of the keys to his success is the work he put in.

        Travis, I'm glad to see you giving back...and I'm proud of you.

    Thanks for the great post!
    I'm surprised it didn't get more replies and thanks!

    I noticed that you had instructed a lot of "Create 7 Articles/Videos/Podcasts", but not on submitting them. I would assume you would be submitting them as well in that one day?

    I do see how this plan seems sort of implausible. Mostly because creating 7 of anything takes at least 3-4 hours, and 5-7 hours if outsourcing. And then submitting them would probably take another 2 hours. The BL task would also probably take 4 hours at least!
    So, I'm not sure how well your estimation are with those tasks. Seems like you'd need to be working 8-10hrs+ a day to get those done.

      Those time frames are not estimates. They are how long it takes me. I said you are looking at 3-4 hours work a day average. If you read it again you will see that article submissions, video submissions, and podcasts submissions are all part of teh backlink duties. And when you use software ...I use free software in 90% of the cases above...it cuts down hours of time. Writing 7 articles takes about 4 hours if you have to reasearch the topic....after a few weeks there is no research. Reading those 7 articles and recording your voice takes about 20 minutes. Then doing screen capture videos of power point slides takes about 4-5 hours, add the already recorded podcasts as the voice over and your done.

      Those time frames aren't exaggerated at all. If I was submitting everything one by one, then this would be a 12 hour day every day project. I made the set up so that I work for 4-6 hours Monday-Wednesday then the rest of the week is 2 hours max usually.

      Go for it nichechic. The easiest way to keep up with it is having a large formatted calender. That's exactly how I go about it. Do it for one week and you will be seeing more traffic then you did before so maybe that little boost will give you some motivation to do the next week.

    Wow! Great detail and a great plan. I love the way you emphasize consistency. I think the tendency to expect something overnight with an online business is what causes many to fail. When they don't reach their (unrealistic) goal they jump to another 'sure thing'.

          I use wordpress but include static elements. Home page usually has a static article or text at top so that the site better optimizes for the keyword...also includes constant activity by recent content being published.

          I create my category pages to display like a static website would too, but it keeps adding content each day.

          This all takes just a small portion of coding knowledge or a web designer.

    What types of "free" software do you use for the podcasting, etc. I know how to do slides and put them into a powerpoint and upload that to youtube. Other than that, I'm lost.

    If you, or someone, could point me to where I could get some info on that it would be great.

    This plan is awsome, I've printed it and intend to do it, just stuck a little on the pod casts and vids.

    Many thanks!

    Excellent content syndication plan!

    The only area I'm not too sure about is the Podcast area. Can you sketch out the process for podcasts a little bit more - where do you post them to, what's the best method of posting them, etc etc.

    Be appreciated.

LinkedIn I just add all the professionals I come across thorughout the day. So, any facebook group leaders in the niche, any blog owners that I talk to about guest posting.

      LinkedIn and Foursquare are more add as you go. You will get kicked quickly if you were to add just anybody. Foursquare is only for niches that I do locally as well. They are more for building relationships with possible JV's, ad swaps, etc.

        HI,

        How do you do it for twitter? (I'm not sure about the 'obvious' part for twitter? )

        Thanks!

          • Thanks, appreciate that. Have reviewed it -- some good information.

            I think I am starting to understand the overall approach you have taken.

            One thing I'm confused with though is how do you actually make money? It seems from all these different platforms, and the content you've provided is all free, including on your websites, etc...

            I'm assuming you actually sell them then in your autoresponder series? If so, what kind of timeframe/format do you use, plus what is your sales funnel like? (I.e., small item first, then big ticket? Or some other kind of arrangement).

            Also #2, for your wordpress sites -- which plugins do you use?

            Thanks!

                This will surely be my last little question 'cause you gave really all the things we needed to know about your awesome system and at some point we got to apply all this and test things ourselves and get our own answers.

                So, I was just wondering: Do you create backlinks only to the original article (+podcast +video) that's on your blog or do you help like let say your EZA article as well. I'm just thinking that it's often more easy to rank an EZA article than a blog post so do you also "help" these articles or do you focus ONLY on backlinking to your blog?

                  I know some people do a small amount of backlinking to their EZA articles etc with results, but I only backlink my urls. I've backlinked my EZA articles and things in the past but it did nothing for me in the long run.

                  I saw someone joined a few dead newsletters I had. I think the ones you joined are niches that I got involved in at the very beginning of my career. I never sold anything in them, I just was practicing my campaigning.

                  I just sell like a normal email marketing campaign. There's not much secret to the method.

                    I'm checking this out and might implement this for 2 months. I'm having staff research on this and will build a quick system on it. will probably need 3 people to do this part time each. Oh well.

                    Additional tasks for them! hehe.

                    i'll let you know results and i read your newsletters. good info. and I'm taking in the systems you have in place.

                    Ah, I see. That would make sense (although June/July 2009 is interesting to consider a 'start' of a career ). Can you share one of the newer domains that is successful right now so I can model the successful sites/apply the same principles to a few of my sites?

                    Thanks,

    Great outline, Travis.

    One thing new marketers MUST get right is keyword research. With proper research, one will get a good idea of what keywords the market is searching for and the volume. Get keyword research wrong, and you could be wasting your time with the rest of the plan.

    Dude, this post is SO good.

    It's easily better than any traffic course I've ever seen, most of which I've paid decent money for. Honestly, I'd recommend printing this out and laminating it and sticking it on your wall. And if you ever feel like you can't get traffic, just do this, since it's broken down to the point where anyone can follow it and apply it.

    And it's so scalable it makes me sick.. You can easily break this entire method into smaller systems, which you can outsource to almost completely take yourself out of the equation. You can then work as little or much as you want.

    Awesome, bro, I'm liking it.. Thanks a lot for this. This encompasses more than even I do, and I do quite a lot haha

        To answer your question and Jsamson's as well up there, I do create a new FB account for every niche. I would bet 99% of every successful social marketer has a separate account for their personal contacts and their business.

        Like JsamsonNJ said, you are only supposed to have 1 FB account according to the rules, but social marketing platforms aren't supposed to be marketed on at all. It's against the whole purpose of social media. But, I dare anyone to try and stop marketers from finding a way to promote to places where millions of people are located.

        Google says you're not supposed to link from outside sources to your own web sites...they want natural backlinking and natural popularity rises. Are you going to wait for natural backlinking to get you high in the SERPS? Your answer better be no.

        I have over 15 FB accounts right now. All in different names. All have been verified with different phone numbers (I have lots of phone lines for tracking direct mail campaigns and local advertising campaigns, etc.).

        Just a side note on social marketing. I never promote anything. Not one message will be a promotion for money. I post my article, video, podcast links that eventually pushes them into email marketing campaigns, that eventually promotes products, but I never promote on social marketing platforms. Like I mentioned before, they weren't made for that so I consider it bad practice. All you have to do is be social and you will get huge results with SM. Get them started in the sales funnel here.

          Great post. Thanks for the info.

          So, FB does not track through IP address for signups? If so, are you using a proxy for that?

          I have only had the nerve to sign up for one FB account. I suppose having the nerve to go against the rules sometimes is holding me back somewhat.

          Thanks again for the great info.

      Exactly!!!!! I work on my web empire a total of 2 hours a week just making sure my outsourcers are taking care of business. When I jump into a new niche, I will be a large part of it. But as soon as it's ready to work for me and not the other way around, I'm gone. And that's about 45 days in.

      I even just opened a local office and hired a project manager to do this part for me. Some have told me its a waste of money to pay some guy $50k to keep an eye on such trivial tasks. I consider 100 hours a year of my time worth $50k.

      How much is your time worth to you? You're the only one who should decide that...not some 50 hour a week corporate job. Everyone of you are worth more then what they will pay you. You are the only one who can make it happen though...it's not going to just fall in your lap.

      Damn...that would of been nice.

      Create systems people! Systems are something that can take you out of the equation and they still deliver expected results. This is a common problem with businesses and their owners...without the owner, there is no business.

      How could I take my 3 month vacation in Spain if that were the case?

      Every time I take a vacation, my consulting clients get worried that things are going to fall apart, but it has never happened that way. It's because I implement systems in everything I do..even the client's businesses. They love me for it because it makes them more money and gives them more time.

      I preach and preach and preach about the importance of your time. It's the only thing you can't get back.

      You can always make more money, buy new toys, find new friends...but every second you lose is gone forever. Not that we all don't like those suggested things, but without the time to enjoy them, what are they other then just a waste.

    Great plan of action this one of the most important parts that most newbies and struggling marketers seem to struggle with.

    And is they stick with it and don't quit if they dont get results right away they will come if you follow this great action plan you have right in front of you and all for free.

    Anyone struggling with traffic should follow this plan and also figure out what works best for you and even add to it.

    I've signed up for all my FB accounts from one computer...maybe two. If they track ISPs, they haven't gotten to me yet. And honestly, if they really wanted to close all my FB accounts it wouldn't bother me at all.

    The majority of my traffic is from search engines, video sites, and iTune channels (about 95% of the traffic). As you can tell from the plan above, I don't take a hugely active part in social media. I add 50-100 friends a day and I reply to relevant questions and direct messages once a week.

    I keep using social media in the loop because it has that small chance one of your content pieces will go viral...but if it's good enough, it will usually go viral on it's own without you having to post it on social media sites. Others will do that for you. Just give them the tools on your site to post to their favorite media sites themselves (sexy bookmarks, sociable plugin).

    I had the same problem some of you had when I was starting. I worried too much about the specifics. Little details don't matter. You can have one of the ugliest sites in the world. As long as your content is good, call to action gets to moving, and sales funnel converts, it would still bring in thousands.

      Thanks for the reply, Travis.

      I know this may be an obvious question to most on here...but...I assume that when you go into a niche you use an alias and avatar and such and the only one that you use your true identity with is your own business consulting blog.

      Again, my"rule following" behavior sometimes gets in my way

        You got it krystalm. Some niches don't want to hear from Travis Petelle for information. I will give you an example.

        One of my niches is involving pregnant women. Now, I went into this niche at first as myself (a man) trying to help women out. I wasn't selling anything...only offering quality information. I started forum posting and doing my normal routine. I was pretty much yelled at for acting like I knew what it was like to go through pregnancy and offering them a solution to ease the whole process. I even got banned from one forum...no links in my signature or posts...no promotion of any kind...just because I offered advice as an unknown man. I was getting about a 2% conversion rate on my email campaign at the time in that niche too.

        Then, I put up a craigslist ad looking for a spokesperson for my products. Need a women, preferably a women who has been pregnant. I paid her to use her picture..her name..and be here when talking to these people. No public appearances needed, nothing special...just wanted to use her information.

        My first forum post as this alias got over 55 replies from pregnant women asking questions to learn more. This was pretty much the exact same information I provided as myself. From that day forward, anyone who joined my email list converted at 6%. Pen names and aliases are needed sometimes.

        My consulting business is what I love doing and is what I want to be a part of so I have no problem using my real name. I am starting my round of public speaking events around the country in December and it might be odd if I showed up as someone else lol.

      What kind of percentage breakup would you give the SE, video and iTunes?

    How do you automate this?

          Hi Travis,
          This seems like a good solid plan and i am wondering why are you not charging fee for sharing this.

          I didnot know about this post and i am thankful that my fellow warrior friend Karl Thomas has informed me about this.

          Awesome step-by-step guide you provided there! You could have created an ebook about this 28 day guide and sell for $47 or $67 and make a lot of money. But you provided it here for free.

          I really like your game plan about getting boatloads of traffic, it seems hard for most people as mostly will not take action despite giving them all the steps, but you are right, not everyone will take action on this.

          You've really come up a very nice strategy and action plan about getting steady traffic. Will bookmark this page for future reference and for my daily cheat sheet.

          Thanks

        Hey Travis,

        This is simply incredible stuff! The information in this post is worth more than what I've spent on WSOs this entire year (which is more than I care to share). This is so great I HAD to sign up for your Ultimate Niche Secrets newsletter. I'm looking forward to the upcoming content!

        Also, I had a few questions about your 28 day approach as I'm going to try and replicate it for one of my sites:

        Create 30 days of social media messages (5 messages per day)
        What type of messages do you mean? Just short blurbs about our product, our site, what kind of toothpaste we use?

        Add 50-100 followers, friends, etc on all social media sites (from now on when I say SM duties, you know this is what I'm referring to)
        Does "SM duties" simply entail adding 50-100 followers on media sites?

        Turn 7 articles into PDFs?
        What do you do with them once you turn them into pdfs?

        Record 7 Podcasts
        What do you use to record your podcasts?

        Create accounts for social media sites Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare (whatever else you like...I only use these)
        Do you just create one account per site, per niche?


        Write 7 Articles (have them automatically posted 1 a day using wordpress)
        Do you mean post 1 article a day to a different wordpress blog? Could you elaborate a little more on this.

        Write 3 press releases (1 about your website, 1 about something you are giving away, 1 about your product you're selling)
        Do you submit these the same day you write them and do you mass submit or just submit one per site?

        Social Bookmark everything with OnlyWire
        How many bookmarks do you typically create per article, podcast, video, etc?

          I take 100-130 character sections out of my articles and use them as SM messages. Just copy paste. Depending on your article, you can get a lot of messages.

          I never promote anything through social media. I only provide quality content and about once every 2.5 days I will have a link to one of my content pieces.

          1 per site, yep. I've thought about having each of my outsourcers create another account in another name to add to it...but it's unnecessary. Social marketing isn't one of my systems strong points...it's just for extra traffic. Social media platform visitors usually comment more then other sources...don't know why...just ends up being that way.

          This scenario is assuming you have 1 blog. You post 1 article per day to that 1 blog. So after 30 days, you have 30 articles posted. Once you have the videos and podcasts made, you can post them as posts on your blog as well. So, you could have 3 posts being posted per day...1 article (early morning)....1 podcasts (around lunch)...1 video (evening).

          Originally Posted by W.P. Allen View Post

          I write 7 on Monday lets say. I put them into WordPress to automatically post 1 a day. That way I don't have to write for 7 days and I don't have to worry about it posting. Grab the onlywire plugin for wordpress and every morning when you wake up, it will automatically social bookmark your sites. A pop up comes up every morning asking me to fill in 5 CAPTCHA codes for things like Mixx, Digg, etc.

          I'm assuming you mean backlinks, but if you did mean social bookmarks...I use onlywire which sends it to like 20-25 (not exactly sure).

          Backlink wise, I only focus my backlinks on 5 targeted keywords at a time. You spread yoruself to thin otherwise. I backlink to the article version, the podcast version, and the video version for that particular keyword. Once I have one of them in a decent SERP position, I will go after 5 more keywords.

                  No problem Louise. I'm actually spending more time on this post then the rest of my businesses haha.

                  My usual system is I have one link pointing to my squeeze page and my second link points to another piece of content on my site with keyword targeted anchor text. I don't plan out which piece of content, I just have a list of all my keywords and articles in an excel sheet for quick choosing.

          Also, do you target a big list of keywords or do you focus more on a smaller list of higher traffic keywords?

          Thank you so much for taking the time to answer all of these questions. If you ever decide to "flesh" this out and put it in PDF form let me know... I'd gladly pay for a copy!

            I've actually been getting a crap load of emails to start a mentorship program so that might be in the works. Who knows. I have a lot of info in my head that I know can make lots of people successful.

            Anyways, to your questions.

            I make one authority website per niche. It's using a blog platform (WordPress), and blog structure with their categories etc, but it's made to be an authority website for people to get information about the niche.

            I don't have posts on there that talk about me or anything like most blogs are done.

            First thing I do is massive keyword research. It takes me about a day or two to do my keyword research because I don't ever want to do it again. I get it out of the way.

            I make an excel file with the keyword and the exact keyword searches per month. I don't discriminate against any keywords. If it gets 50 exact keyword searches per month globally, I still put it on my list. I will generate about 1000 keywords per niche. The focus is that the keywords are actual phrases that people search for looking for information in that particular niche. No mispelled words. No single keywords. All have to be at least a keyword that I can put in a buyer's phrase.

            Now, I take a look at the keywords that get the high amounts of search volume. Anything getting 1900 exact searches per month or more works fine with me. I use the free version of Traffic Travis to look at the competition. You can easily see which ones will be difficult to rank for and which ones you actually have a fighting chance.

            I choose 5-8 of my favorite keywords. These keywords are going to be my domain name and 4-7 categories. So, each of those keywords has to be able to be made into a category. They can be similar to one another, but as long as you can make it slightly different it's cool. So maybe you have "best weight loss diets", "exercises for weight loss", "DVDs for losing weight". That would be three different categories.

            Now, I take the rest of my 1000 keywords and I split them up into the categories assigned. I spend a day creating headlines for all my keywords. This makes my article writing much quicker later on because I don't have to think about which direction I want the article to go in. You can always change where you want it to go and I regurarly use the same keyword in multiple articles.

            Okay, now when I do my backlinking. I only go after a max of 7 keywords at a time. Those 7 keywords are my domain name keyword, and the 6 category keywords I chose. They all get decent amounts of traffic and I've researched the competition.

            Now, it might take 2 weeks to get one to the top 3 or it might take 6 months. No matter how long it takes, I continue to backlink for a keyword until it gets to where I want it. So lets say I'm backlinking for my main 7 keywords and one of them gets to the number 2 spot for the keyword. I will take my focus off that keyword, continue backlinking the other 6, and begin backlinking the next keyword on my list I want to target. It's just another repeat cycle.

            Hope that cleared my system up a little.

            Travis

              Travis, I know you link heavily based on keywords. I read a case study the other day where 5 of the top 10 results for a moderately competitive keyword also had a significant percentage of "branded" links (i.e., the name of the company and/or the site url) as well as a smattering of 'click here' and 'this site' type links.

              Curious the hear what you think of the idea...

              A suggestion I have is to use Traffic Geyser (secretagentblueprint.com/blog/trafficgeyser) which will automate your video submissions to over 100 video sites, podcasting sites, social bookmarking sites, and article directories.

              Another great tool, if you are working with local businesses is Monster Follow Up (monsterfollowup.com/h/12594) which is a voice/text system that has an integrated autoresponder system that you can use to collect leads through text, phone call, or email, and then follow up through any of those means (or all of them together). I use this for my real estate business.
              @chelle86, Nice first post. Welcome to the active part of the forum.

              Quick note about presenting affiliate links...

              While you did nothing wrong by posting affiliate links as part of contributing to the conversation, we generally consider it polite to disclose the fact that you are an affiliate, and to provide non-affiliate links. It helps to distinguish between the folks posting links to be helpful (which I believe you were) and folks posting links to promote their affiliate link.

              Since many members are affiliates of something or other, and others prefer to buy through affiliate links to reward the referral, you might be surprised how well it works - in moderation.

              BTW, you can make the links live by adding the http:// to the beginning...

                SSSHHHHH!!!!

                I often use my website name, company name, free guide name, 'click here', and related keywords as my anchor text. I think you actually gave me the idea about this theory months ago and it's proven to be true for me.

                It's a dead give away that you are the only one linking to the site when you have only the targeted keyword as anchor text. Google especially seems to look for these things. You will more then likely still get ranked but it could be months down the road...a.k.a sandboxed, but I've never seen it be permanent.

                I use a 75% targeted keyword anchor text to 25% random word anchor text ratio.

        Thanks Travis for your well defined plan. I"m a newbie, so I'll spend some of my time just trying to figure out what some of those things are, and a lot of my time figuring out how to do a lot of those things. This plan brings the reality of IM to me though, knowing there is a huge of amount of knowledge built up just in knowing how to do all those things, let alone developing the discipline to do them.

        I've been trying to learn IM for a couple of months now, and I have a blog started and have signed up for some affiliate programs. No sales yet. I've been doing some article writing and submission too, but reading your post makes me realize that learning IM is not much different than learning any career. It encompasses a lot of knowledge that can only be built one layer upon another.

        Your post have me some great understanding of how far along I am not, and how far along I must be to expect some good results. Thanks again for all your insight.

          I just launched my blog in the weight loss niche. Im a trainer so I know this stuff best. Already set up to collect emails. Will be sending PPC traffic to my landing page on the blog as well as implementing this 28 day plan.

          So far have done day 1. Doing those messages took about 1hour 30 minutes. I was in zombie mode after haha.

          Will post updates as time goes on.

          Should I post this as a new thread?

            Will post updates as time goes on.

            Should I post this as a new thread?

      I'm not really involved in the IM niche. I have my email newsletter, but I don't sell IM products in it other then market research items.

      Completely right John. You don't have to do each planned day in 1 day. You could spread this out as far as you want. The more content out on the web, the more likely you are going to get a viewer...the quicker you put the more content on the web, the quicker that viewer has a chance to find you. This could be a 3 month plan if you don't have 4 hours a day.

      Not one of these days will be more then an 8 hour day...never. That was the main point I went for when I started creating my system. I never wanted to work an 8 hour day again, and I haven't.

      If you are brand new to article writing, it might take you longer at first then a month in. Once you write 50 articles in one subject though, you can write a 350-500 article in a couple minutes. Same goes with video creation, forum posts, blog comments, finding friends on SM networks, or any job you've ever done really. The more you do it the easier it becomes. It gets to be your daily activities and gets so easy it's ridiculous.

      Then you get that first nice paycheck and you find your outsourcers...then you don't have to do it ever again.

        I have kind of hit a wall when it comes to article writing and it sort of takes me forever to get done with just one article. After reading this, I am going to give it a persistent shot, so that I can reach the stage of making it ridiculously easy.

        Thanks for sharing this and this is indeed one of the best threads I have come across on this forum.

      Awesome post Travis. This reminds me of my old 7 Day Plan I sold with one of my old courses. It's so obvious when you see it all laid out, but most people can't see it until it is laid out like that.

      Your 28 Day Plan shows people what you need to do to make your business work. Or at least a viable practically free (money free) method.

      One thing that occurred to me...

      It might seem efficient to write the 7 articles all at once, but it also could be intimidating. So why not spread the writing part out a bit, since the posting of the articles is also spread out, so these tasks could be done in tandem.

      I suppose making the audios is more efficient if you have all the articles ready... and maybe the videos too. But still.

      I do really like this plan though, and the action steps. Thanks!

        Thanks, JohnMccabe. I was pretty sure I would find a post like yours somewhere among the numerous posts of Travis' wonderful topic.

        As I discovered the topic an hour ago, I found 2 minutes to discuss it with my wife. I have a full-time day-job ( well, almost full, I work from Monday to Thursday, Friday will be used for IM work most of the time ). And I have 2 young kids. So, 3 to 4 hours a day was too much asking, if I wanted my children to recognize me when they got back home. I was thinking of spreading it out over 2 months instead of 28 days, knowing full well it would mean I'd have to wait twice as long to reach good and sustainable success.

        Again, thanks a lot for pointing that out.

          Good idea phmoisan. When I was first starting, I had a full time job and a lot of extra activities. My day was full. I only could do 1-2 hours a day and it required me to wake up early or stay up late. Everyone can sacrifice a little time and all it takes is to be consistent and continue to do that 1-2 hours everyday.

          If you do the plan in the OP half as slow but for at least 6 months, you are still going to see some good results. Results that can be scaled up big time.

    Yeah, you could actually just take his plan line by line and use it as a checklist.

    So every time you sit down to work on your business, you complete 1 line.

    Doesn't matter if you can't work on it for 3 days - just come back to the list and do the next item.

    Makes it easier and less overwhelming.

The Warrior forum is responsible for how many successful careers in Internet Marketing? I can just hear all of the frustrated newbies desperate and complaining that they just can't do it.

      I like how the 28 days is just a suggestion. Even if it takes 90 days, there are still no excuses for those who are purpose driven, filled with a burning desire and refuse to be denied. Thanks for giving back.

        Once search engine traffic starts coming in at a big enough amount I'm good with, I just have my outsourcers continue medial backlinking tasks to keep the rankings up.

        I also have content start to post once a week instead of 3 pieces a day. Write 50 articles and you have a year of posting...just keeps your site on google's good side.

          Travis,

          Nice plan. I've got a question and a couple of suggestions.

          Regarding podcasts--> are you getting traffic from people who listen to them? I ask because it seems counter productive to read a 500 word article and call it a podcast. I'd be surprised if anybody who listened would become a customer. Could you elaborate a bit more on this?

          I noticed you didn't include ad swaps or ppc on your list. I can understand ppc as beginners might be strapped for cash *but* depending on the niche, network, and type of ad (search, display) cheap clicks can be had. Ad swaps though can increase a list quickly and can happen without a large outlay of money or time.

          Please understand that I'm not attempting to take anything away from your plan. It's solid and well though out.

            You're totally right on the ad swaps and ppc. I personally don't use PPC. I have never spent a dollar on it and probably never will. I started this whole process with $40 to spend on hosting and a domain...nothing more. So I had to find ways around investment traffic generation. If I had money in the beginning, I would of more then likely learned PPC...it is probably the quickest way to make a huge amount of money with IM, but if you don't know what you are doing, it's the quickest way to never do IM again lol.

            I did say in the post that you can do much more to generate traffic then what is listed. I was going to say something about ad swaps a few posts back actually lol. Ad swaps are kind of part of the find other bloggers in your niche and guest post and link swap.

            In the first 28 days, you are going to have a difficult time finding people to do swaps with you. Everyone is greedy and only looking how they are going to benefit. When your list only has 20 people on it, they aren't going to be too open to swapping with you. There are ways around this but that's a 100 page book in itself.

    Sure its a good plan. Not only will it spread your content, but it will improve search engine rankings (driving more traffic to the site). Unfortunately, it is a full time job. For this reason, people pay $$$ to higher digital marketing firms to do the dirty work.

    The plan will totally work and leverage with outsourcing as you free up more time to plan, train and let them do the work by themselves and it's true, with consistency, everything gets smooth and effective in the process because you just follow through what you've started.

      You can spread it out as long as you want. One friend that I mentored and taught my internet marketing to, only submitted 1 article, 1 video, and 1 podcast a week due to he has a 50-60 hour a week job, a family with 3 kids, and much more. So, he couldn't invest 4 hours a day and that's completely understandable.

      If you are going to spread it out, you have to understand it might take 3-6 months before you even see anything positive though. That's where most will fail. A lot of people won't continue with something they don't see immediate results. Packing this in within 28 days will pretty much guarantee you are getting a decent amount of traffic. Or it will at least show you the potential of how much you could get with 28 days more of it.

    I find is pretty easy to get noticed on the net with the exception of FB.

    Lets say you sign up as John Brown and make a page for your niche which is Hair Loss. How do you get people to sign up for it? You can't actively go out and post on their FB as a page.

    So you can post interesting tidbits but who sees it? I would love your tips on generating sign ups and traffic on the FB pages.

      You want your main homepage to be a page that you can rank for. You are going to have a hard time ranking a squeeze page. My websites have my main page which is set up just like a blog would be except, I have a portion on the top that is always going to be an insert of text that introduces the website and is keyword focused. The boost in rankings from a domain with your keyword is awesome.

      Make the squeeze page an extension..travispetelle.com/squeezeme/. Don't worry about ranking the squeeze page because every piece of content on your site should have a link to your squeeze page. That's where your call to action kicks in. You can also have a optin form to the right side of the website. You could also add a pop up form if you want, but test these things. Sometimes it decreases conversion rate.

      To edit a wordpress homepage to include more then just the latest blog posts, go into the index.php file. Look where it calls for the "content" and just use simple HTML right below there. It's pretty easy to find. Just copy paste your original index.php file into a notepad document just in case you screw it up.

        Thanked you on your OP - thanks for being so generous. I think the above is what I have the most difficult with. Does the theme really matter? Could you provide an example of something where the optin is to the right?

      I make one authority website per niche. It's using a blog platform (WordPress), and blog structure with their categories etc, but it's made to be an authority website for people to get information about the niche.

      I don't have posts on there that talk about me or anything like most blogs are done.

      First thing I do is massive keyword research. It takes me about a day or two to do my keyword research because I don't ever want to do it again. I get it out of the way.

      I make an excel file with the keyword and the exact keyword searches per month. I don't discriminate against any keywords. If it gets 50 exact keyword searches per month globally, I still put it on my list. I will generate about 1000 keywords per niche. The focus is that the keywords are actual phrases that people search for looking for information in that particular niche. No mispelled words. No single keywords. All have to be at least a keyword that I can put in a buyer's phrase.

      Now, I take a look at the keywords that get the high amounts of search volume. Anything getting 1900 exact searches per month or more works fine with me. I use the free version of Traffic Travis to look at the competition. You can easily see which ones will be difficult to rank for and which ones you actually have a fighting chance.

      I choose 5-8 of my favorite keywords. These keywords are going to be my domain name and 4-7 categories. So, each of those keywords has to be able to be made into a category. They can be similar to one another, but as long as you can make it slightly different it's cool. So maybe you have "best weight loss diets", "exercises for weight loss", "DVDs for losing weight". That would be three different categories.

      Now, I take the rest of my 1000 keywords and I split them up into the categories assigned. I spend a day creating headlines for all my keywords. This makes my article writing much quicker later on because I don't have to think about which direction I want the article to go in. You can always change where you want it to go and I regurarly use the same keyword in multiple articles.

      Okay, now when I do my backlinking. I only go after a max of 7 keywords at a time. Those 7 keywords are my domain name keyword, and the 6 category keywords I chose. They all get decent amounts of traffic and I've researched the competition.

      Now, it might take 2 weeks to get one to the top 3 or it might take 6 months. No matter how long it takes, I continue to backlink for a keyword until it gets to where I want it. So lets say I'm backlinking for my main 7 keywords and one of them gets to the number 2 spot for the keyword. I will take my focus off that keyword, continue backlinking the other 6, and begin backlinking the next keyword on my list I want to target. It's just another repeat cycle.

      Hope that cleared my system up a little.
      It certainly does. This is great stuff! You are really going the extra mile here for us.

    Great idea. By writing it out the way you have it also becomes a system.

    The more your business activities become systems and are documented the easier it is to outsource, scale, and possibly create a plug and play business that can be sold or the information on how it is done can be sold or even franchised.

    Thanks Travis for sharing your strategies.

    I am at a point where I can start outsourcing a lot of my work but I haven't really started looking at any courses on the subject.

    Do you have any suggestions on where to start learning on how to outsource? The quality of the people you choose to outsource your work to is huge so I have been trying to find the right information.

    Thanks in advance..

      Welcome Jeffrey. Even if you've been involved with internet marketing for a long time, you are going to find lots of great stuff here.

      As far as finding the right outsourcers, it's all about how you explain the job at hand. I started by hiring 3 of each duty that needed to be done and I would choose the best out of the three.

      Now, I send new employees a huge file of screen capture videos that explains step by step what I want them to do for each task. So, I will record myself doing my social marketing tasks and that will be one video. I did it for each task needed so that there is no confusion. Make sure they are informing you of what they are doing at least once a week. You wouldn't believe the amount of people that say they do something but don't.

      I'm actually starting to hire locally. It costs about 5 times as much, but I like having people I can talk to face to face and motivate. And I love having the local office. Just got an office last month on the 36 floor downtown Nashville overlooking the city (this was always a dream of mine). My prospect consulting clients are pretty much hooked the second they hit the elevator. It's like taking candy from a baby sometimes.

      My enterprise is starting to move it's focus away from internet marketing campaigns though. Even though that is a large part of my current income and I will always be involved, I am in the process of building a large marketing and consulting firm.

      I have been setting up my internet marketing company to teach my new workers how to become self sufficient with internet marketing. All of my new hires are people who want to learn to be success internet marketers. They start out as low paid workers willing to learn but end up as partners. It's more like a mentor program. I offer the guidance, the know how, and the nice equipment for the jump start. After a certain amount of time working for me, I offer them a project niche website of their choice and I want to develop it and have them run it themselves and expand. I just take a small percentage from that point on, but it will be their own company. It's kind of like franchising my system.

      This is a new project but I think it will be very successful. I'm trying to make as many entrepreneurs as I can. As I see it, I will have a giant empire of companies that I have a silent partnership in and will have to do zero work all the time being able to help others. I believe once I have a few successful employees out there, I will have a nice network of affiliates as well.

      Who knows how it turns out though...employees can be horrible. I used to be one of the horrible employees lol. I had no problem quitting a job at the drop of the hat just because I didn't want to go to work in the morning. That's why I always knew I had to run the show.

      Got a little side tracked there...anyways, outsourcing takes technique in itself. More than not, you will come across poor employees especially when you are only paying them $2-$4/hour. It's all in how you explain the job and what's expected out of them.

        Hire me! If there's such thing as a dream "job" this is it! a place where an employer would be happy that you made your own company with good income? not only that, but it's encouraged by your employer....This system needs to be more popular.

    As big as I can find with as little competition as possible that is a relevant buyers keyword. I don't exactly have a number I shoot for. I have a lucrative niche I know will produce money in my pocket then I find the best keyword available.

    They typically range in the 2-5k exact search results. If I find a 20k keyword, I would choose that one though.

I am really starting to see traffic increase because of my hard work. There is no get rich schemes people, but if you work hard you can make a living on the internet and become your own boss.

      Exactly. And after a couple months, you just outsource and you don't work hard anymore. I never understand why some people think it's going to be any harder than working 8 hours a day in an office. You're not going to get the returns from that job that's for sure.

    I had a couple questions about the above though.

    1. How would you rate the quality of the content you provide?
    2. How long are your guest swap posts?
    3. What is the best way of finding WordPress themes with an opt in sidebar well integrated?
    It seems to me that most of your linking on your main/sales page should point to your opt in...

      1. Always provide the best quality you can. Any content on the web is the first impression on my business and it's the first obstacle to overcome when trying to build trust with a prospect and generate a buyer.

      2. A normal article size...350-800 words.

      3. I use a few different themes. I have done coding for the past couple years as a hobby, so I can make any theme the way I want it. I like the journalism theme for a simple two column layout.

      4. I rarely sell directly through my website. 95% of my sales come from email marketing promotions. Everything else is designed to get them on my email marketing campaign. Like you said, most links are pointing towards the squeeze page. The other links are pointing to more content on my site. Never let them leave!

        This is the part that I feel inexperienced to buy into.

        You hinted in the past that you typically outsource; how can you keep that consistent with such high quality content?

        Have any suggestions?

        I've reached out a few times - and the replies that I receive usually have poorly written e-mails... just a huge warning sign to me.

          Hey abednego. Finding the right outsourcers is something of an art in itself. I am having this as a section of my mentoring program just because it can be very frustrating with finding good workers.

          I have found 3 great writers that are located here in the US. They cost more at cheapest $10/article and that's only when I bulk purchase from them. They are professional writers that can write at my level of skill.

          I never hire the cheap article writers because of the quality issue. You are always double checking the work and having to make small fixes. And the quality is worth the extra money...if you have a good article writer that does quality work, your click thru rate is going to be higher which means more sales in the end.

          Smart business is all about getting the highest return on your investments and this applies to outsourcing too. I pay $3,000-$5,000 up front when creating a new site...that's how much content I want done. But in 6 months, that initial content will have made me 4 times that at minimum.

    Thanks for this. You have sparked my motivation and I'm following this guideline to the key. I'm working on day 1. But I've hit a roadblock. #1-I'm not creating a new FB account because I have one (I want to play this game ethically). #2-Do you use your real first/last name for Linkedin?

    Thanks, I've signed up for your newsletter. Appreciate the value here. If you ever run your mentor business (great idea btw) I'd love to be a part of it.

    Peace and love,

      Hey razza,

      I'm glad you've gotten motivated to do the work. It's worth it...trust me.

      I understand that you might consider creating more than 1 facebook account against the rules and slightly unethical...that's fine. But, consider it this way. I create separate accounts on all my social media platforms first off because I want always to keep my personal life separate from my professional life. I don't use FB much for personal use, but I have had the same account since freshman year of college when it first came out. It's for talking to friends and family...not promotion.

      And secondly, I am involved in 16 niches right now. If I were to use only one account for all these niches...I would lose some credibility in each industry. If people see you're an expert in gardening, dog walking, canoeing, astro physics, music production, etc, they will think you as just a marketer.

      Yes, I do have a LinkedIn account with my real name.

      Now in regards to buying a domain that is a year old. It depends on what the previous owner of the domain did with it. If it was a link farm or something like that, Google could of put it on their "no fly" list and you could never see the light of day with it. Age for a website doesn't play a huge roll. The reason the older websites do better is because they've had more time for their backlinks to get indexed. You can out rank any age website.

    Another question -- Is it worth buying 1 year old domain (from Godaddy, for example: registered 6/28/09 expires 6/28/10) for like $10, does that help you jump higher on google? Im competing with PR2-4 sites that have ages of 4-5 years =/

    Hi Travis,

    I, like you, like to do all of my keyword research and grab thousands of keywords and get it out of the way.

    My problem is how do you identify "buying keywords.

    What's you selection process?



    Thanks,

    I am glad I read your post. It looks like I am on the right track. I am glad you do promote the "build 18,000 mini-sites" mantra!

      Travis,

      Wonderful post! As mentioned earlier I believe...it's posts like this that keep me coming back to Warrior Forum every few days!

      Now, as I've skimmed over all these pages, I may have missed the needed clarification I'm looking for in regards to:

      "...Create 30 days of social media messages..."

      Could you elaborate, if possible, on what a social media message would be, as I'm just not getting the right picture in my head in order to fully implement your 30-step strategy.

      Thanks,

      Figuring out what buying keywords are just takes some time being an internet marketer. The more you get involved, the more you see what type of phrases cause people to buy your products.

      Things that really do well are people looking for:

      brand/model specific keywords: "brown olson M6GV car sterio"

      how to keywords: "how to lose cankles"

      location keywords: "detroit gym"

    Travis,

    for setting up my site,

    Can I grab the one keyword for the domain than set up 5-10 catergories and wthin each catergory have 3-6 posts? That would give my my 30 articles for the moth?

    Also, do you rely on Article marking for traffic or do you mainly focus on getting your Blog posts ranked and found?

      That set up would be fine. Articles bring traffic, videos bring traffic, podcasts bring traffic, guest posts bring traffic, search engines bring traffic, forums bring traffic, blogs bring traffic, press releases bring traffic

      I use all forms of traffic to generate a ton of it.

    Pick ONE Business Model. Stick With it. Do not focus on anything else. Also highly suggested: Learn Copywriting, and improve your mindset (Read and follow EXACTLY the instructions in 'The Law of Success'). If you do all of these, it is pretty hard to fail.

    I don't expect you to expose your sites/niches - but... are there certain niches that you choose to stay away from, that you feel are too saturated? If not, how many words are your long ended keywords?

    Do you market your own products? If so, how long does it usually take you to create them?

    *EDIT*

    This has probably been one of the most helpful posts I have read in a long time here - really helps me put things into perspective...

      Glad I've been able to help!

      There are definitely certain niches I stay away from...not because they are too saturated though...because they won't make me enough money.

      The more saturated the market, the more money it can make you. Once you have your system down, competition isn't so much of a problem...it just causes the results to take a little bit longer the more competitive the niche. But don't think that makes it not worth the wait.

      I don't discriminate on how long a keyword is...that doesn't really come into my thought process. The only thing you must consider when choosing keywords is search volume, competition level, and value of the actual keyword (meaning that people would actually want to buy something when they search that keyword).

      I have products in each of my niches. I start each niche as an affiliate to test out what works. Once, I know it makes money I do a special product creation series...just posted a post about it. I don't have the link right now though.

      The length of product creation depends highly on the product.

    Ah, I guess it's alright. I don't like it though, for the most part. Too vague for me.

    It seems like a shotgun marketing strategy. As in, let's fire the blast and see what we hit.

    Make a video, make an article, make a site, blah blah blah...where are the steps for research? Where are the steps for backlinking and SEO? Where are the steps for managing your content's visibility in the search engines?

    All I can say is, blah. My plan would look a LOT different than that.

    But, for a single WF post, I suppose it's fairly good.

        I assume you are talking about this post?

        http://www.warriorforum.com/mind-war...ior-forum.html

        You mean the "bragging post" where I tell everyone how loaded I am by making my first dollar, which, as the post says, is actually my first thousand dollars, and was posted a couple months ago?

        The post in which I thank the Warrior Forum and let people know I appreciate the advice I've gotten?

        M hm. Looks like some serious "bragging" going on in this post about my first "dollar".

        I'm not a super affiliate or crazy experienced IMer, but I'm not a bigheaded jerk who is trying to insult other people's ideas or harm other people's threads. Be a little more thoughtful the next time you post. A person should be allowed to post constructive criticism without being torn down, and my only point was I wanted more specifics from his plan. It looked like it was missing a few steps or a few details to me.

        So just relax a bit, would ya?

      I wish I could go into researching, backlinking, and the hundreds of other steps...but I've written 300 page ebooks on those subjects. Not sure I could fit the good stuff in one WF post.

      Your post makes no sense either since the articles, the videos, the profile backlinks, the social media duties, the blog comments, the guest posts, and the press releases are used for SEO and backlinking purposes.

        Sorry, I didn't see the SEO aspect to it. Looked more like content creation to me.

        I think it's good for a single WF post, just not something I'd use for a long term thing, unless you got a WSO around it or something with more specifics.

        I'm sure your strategies are good, I just get really frustrated with vague advice because I hear it all the time! I want specifics, specifics, specifics...that is my mindset.

    I thought today I would share my 30 day strategy that I have used on every single one of my authority niche sites. I've also been teaching my friends this strategy and now 3 of them are full time internet marketers. So, I know this works. There is no secret to any of this. It's simple stuff.

    The main thing you must realize before you read anymore is that it's all about consistency. Search engine rankings, traffic generation, etc are all about consistency. In the beginning, if you want to see results sooner then later then you MUST do your required work everyday. If you follow the exact steps I am about to show you, then you will make money.

    This guide is about traffic generation. If you want to make money from the traffic, then you better have some sort of sales funnel set up. Either create a product or be an affiliate. It doesn't matter because you will make money either way. I like to start with an affiliate product in a niche until I have some good traffic coming, then I create a product. In a matter of how long it takes you to create the product, you just doubled/tripled your income.

    On to the guide.

    Day 1
    • Write 7 Articles (have them automatically posted 1 a day using wordpress)
    • Create accounts for social media sites Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare (whatever else you like...I only use these)
    • Create 30 days of social media messages (5 messages per day)
    • Sign up to hootsuite.com and upload all 30 days of messages to be sent to those social media sites automatically.
    • Add 50-100 followers, friends, etc on all social media sites (from now on when I say SM duties, you know this is what I'm referring to)
    Day 2
    • Record 7 Podcasts (just read what you wrote for the 7 articles the day before as material...this takes maybe 30 minutes)
    • SM duties
    • Find 5-10 popular forums in your niche...make accounts...pretty up accounts with info, pictures, links, etc.
    • Find 5-10 other bloggers in your niche and contact them about link swaps/guest post swaps
    Day 3
    • Create 7 Videos (use the exact podcast recording with a screen capture of a slideshow for each video)
    • SM Duties
    Day 4
    • Turn 7 articles into PDFs
    • SM Duties
    • Backlink Duties (From now on when I say BL duties you know it's referring to the list below)
      • Post 1 article to directories (I use ArticleBot, manual submit to EZA and GoArticles, spin twice and post to Buzzle and iSnare)
      • 5-10 relevant blog comments on related blogs
      • 1-10 forum posts per forum you found
      • Submit 1 video with TUbeModul
      • Submit 1 podcasts to radio websites (I usually make an iTunes channel for each niche...there is a WSO on it somewhere I think)
      • submit 1 PDF to scribd
      • Optional : 5-10 backlinks from high PR sites (I used to use angela's backlinks...but rarely do this anymore...it's been unnecessary for results)
      • Social Bookmark everything with OnlyWire
    Day 5
    • Write 3 press releases (1 about your website, 1 about something you are giving away, 1 about your product you're selling)
    • BL duties
    • SM Duties

    Day 8

    Day 9

    RINSE AND REPEAT

    What this does is generate huge amounts of content quickly. It spreads it all across the web so there are so many ways to see your site it's sickening.

    After about 3 months, your content is going to be old enough for google to give it some love. You will start to see so many random visitors from keywords in your articles that you didn't target it's ridiculous.

    The longest day is about 6 hours of work when you do it all yourself. Your going to average 3-4 hours. Outsource and you could average 20 minutes of work.

    Now, the trick to getting big money from this is to perfect your sales funnel, article structure, keyword choice, squeeze page...pretty much your process. Even with a crappy system, you could see good money coming in.

    I suggest as soon as you have enough money coming in to outsource. All of the above steps can be outsourced...every single one of them. I suggest making a screen capture video of the exact process you take of submitting and creating everything...then you have something to send your outsourcers and you know they will get it right the first time.

    I like to add doing a once a week webinar/teleseminar in there too. It builds authority alot quicker and the viral effect of giving webinars rocks. Only takes an 30 minutes - hour and you can just rehash topics you've written articles on.

    As you can see this is all about consistency. My latest niche site has been up for 28 days and I had 320 visitors yesterday...that's without any search engine traffic too. SERPS usually take 3-6 months to kick in then you just have traffic out the ying yang.

    Things to help you get better results with this system:

    • Learn how to effectively write articles
    • Learn how to effectively do keyword research
    • Learn how to effectively target keywords in articles, videos, podcast descriptions
    • Learn how to use a website to direct your viewer to your sales funnel (good squeeze page, good video presentation, etc)
    • Learn how to email market well (All my content sends my viewers to my squeeze page which gets them on my email list...this is the only way I sell things..it might take a week or two longer to get a sale from the visitor but it increases my conversion rate from around 3% to 6%...doubled income)
    • Learn how to network (guest posts, link swaps, and social marketing platforms can bring you thousands of visitors a day alone when done correctly)
    • Learn how to position yourself as an authority (the articles, videos, podcasts, webinars, press releases, forum posts all help this a lot...don't act like a new guy in your industry though)
    • Don't be afraid to take a day off (even though this is a 28 day plan, you don't have to do it in 28 days. You can spread this over 3 months if you want. The results won't come as quickly, but they will come.)
    Okay, that's enough for me. I haven't posted about internet marketing in a while. I think I was getting the shakes. I've been working with too many small businesses that aren't even ready to learn this stuff...guess that's why they pay me the big bucks to hire someone else to do it .

    You can do this.

    Travis
    I recycle everything, audio, videos to articles.... articles to audio and youtube clips.

    Then I post them to my blog, then stumble, digg, and twitter them. You will be suprised at how much traffic this gets you. Especially if you are SEO'ing them.....and also piggying backing of a hot topic that is on google news. Say like lindsey lohan going to the slammer.... if you can ride off something popular that is circling the net it is usually good link bait....(not too targeted, but it is still gunna get you traffic)

    Hi,

    one more question...I promise this is it.

    You stated you use Traffic Travis.

    Do find for the most part it's fairly accurate?
    I don't expect it to be "spot on" but I do expect to be able to trust the results as a guideline.


    Thanks.

      Accuracy is tough on all platforms. Sometimes they can be killer accurate and sometimes they are way off...this goes with every tool out there, free or paid for.

      I use Traffic Travis to mostly just evaluate my competition and is usually only the first step of it. Let me give an example:

      For a keyword i want to get ranked for, I will throw it into Traffic Travis to determine the top 10 competition. This shows me number of backlinks, edu/gov, PR, is the keyword in the h1, title, description, are they in directories like DMOZ, things like that. Don't go by the Traffic Travis star rating for a keyword...even though they are close sometimes they are way off.

      That will give you a general idea of not only if the competition is but what needs to be done to beat that keyword.

      Next step is visit those sites and see what content they offer. What subjects and tools are they providing? I provide at least that plus more.

      I take a look at the site in Yahoo Link Explorer and I take a look at exactly where the links are coming in to that site from. This gives me a big list of places to go get links to my site.

      Then I throw my keyword into Google Alerts. This way if I see my competitors gets a link somewhere...I go do the same then get one more. This makes sure I'm always one step ahead of them and soon enough top ranked.

        when you're looking at the site is Yahoo Site explorer, are you looking at the number of back links the site has?

          Your initial post was generous, informative, and incredibly instructive. You deserve a huge "Thanks" for that alone.

          But even more impressive (if that's possible) has been your willingness to stick around and answer the inevitable questions. If there were an IM equivalent to the Oscar, then surely you deserve it!

          Thank you for your generosity in the sharing of your talent and experience.

          Looking more at the actual sites they get backlinks from. If it's a bunch of social bookmark backlinks then I can easily just click a button to get those. But, if they are getting lots of links fro .gov or .edu sites...I've got some work to do.

    Great plan. As you already said - consistency is the key. Like with any other plan to be honest.

    A couple of things I wanted to ask/add:

    1. How do you keep track of unique visits?

    I'm asking this because a lot of social site bots often appear as normal users to most tracking software. You do a lot of such promotion - Twitter, Facebook, etc... Depending on how you track them, at least half of those 300+ daily visits could've easily been bots.

    2. Can you recommend at least a few good press release services (that you use)? I don't really do PRs and just wanted to see if it's really that effective - a lot of people talking about PRs at the moment.

    Thanks!

      1. I just use analytics. I don't worry to much about bots because I don't just look at the initial traffic coming to my homepage. I dig deeper and examine where my traffic is going...what sites they click on....how many sign up to my newsletter. Bots are just the ones that disappear right off the bat and don't have any activity.

      2. I use PRNewswire. I used to use free services and even had PressBot at one time, but I like the PRNewswire a lot. They are costly for internet marketers...like $200 a release, but they get your material in front of good journalists and also give you a very valuable list of targeted publications that I use every day.

        Do you write the press releases yourself? Any tips for getting the most bang for those $200? Going to start testing them soon.

          I do write the press releases myself....I write all my sales copy really.

          If you are using press releases just for backlinks, then don't worry so much about it...just make it keyword targeted. If you want traffic and press coverage from a press release, then I would suggest doing research on topics being discussed in your industry. Throw new angles at stories they already published.

          The key is making your website and your business newsworthy. The journalists are just looking for stuff that their readers would enjoy...they don't care about any promotions or websites you have. Make their job easier and they will love to publish your release.

          I suggest faxing the press release and calling the journalist on top of just web submissions. I do this as a 3 step process over the past month and have gotten a couple stories published in nice circulation papers. I have also made some networking contacts in the newspaper and radio industry...thats big for future plans.

            What kind of results have you seen with your press releases?

            I have used paid services like that in the past ($150+), and while I received some marginal coverage usually, didn't see what I would have liked. I actually found other methods were more effective in terms of getting the coverage I needed.

              For me it's all about ROI (return on investment). That's why I fax the press release and call the journalist. I want to get a story published. If you just submit to these sites, you are more than likely not going to get any major news coverage. That all depends on your story too though.

              As a business consultant, I focus my work on small businesses. I wrote up a press release about a new system I created to help small businesses get out of the red and make huge profit in any economy. I contacted one of my local newspapers for weeks with different angles to get something published on the system...I was offering the system for free btw.

              After about 3 weeks, the paper published a story on the system and how small businesses don't have to worry about bills and things like that anymore as long as they put the free system in place.

              Throughout the program I promo a seminar I'm holding in October. I have seating for 350. Before the publication, I had sold about 120 tickets...two days after the publication, I was sold out. So, from my $200 press release I made a good $15k and that's not including the backend sales I will get at the seminar from my new book, video programs, and other products. Plus, I guarantee I will get a few new consulting clients from it which equals profits in the 6 figure range.

              When it comes to press releases, you have to get the journalist attention...without it you are just wasting money.

              • Ok, yes, I agree.

                I have had some nice press coverage in the past, just never received it through those free services (or just the pay $200 and watch it come it, etc). So I wanted to know if you were saying you had seeing success just using that method. But I agree that you need to do a little more than simply send it out.

    a) What do you use to create your optin forms in Wordpress?
    b) Which optins have you seen have had the best return? (assuming you've done testing for that)
    c) What kind of autoresponder sequence do you use for your niche websites (i.e., length, timeframe between e-mails, etc)
    d) What kind of content do you provide, & when do you actually sell?
    e) What is your sales funnel like? I.e., signup->e-mails->buy item #1, do you have OTO, discounts if they leave the page, etc, etc?

      Make a video, make an article, make a site, blah blah blah...where are the steps for research? Where are the steps for backlinking and SEO? Where are the steps for managing your content's visibility in the search engines?

      All I can say is, blah. My plan would look a LOT different than that.

      But, for a single WF post, I suppose it's fairly good.

      Cataclysm1987, if you're still following this, just read what you, yourself, posted. See if you catch the patronizing, dismissive tone you used every single time. Then tell us again how all you wanted was a few more specifics, without asking specific questions.

      If you hadn't noticed, Travis has been providing specifics for days after his initial post.

      If you really did intend to provide constructive criticism, you missed the mark, and you owe Travis an apology...

        Travis, U DUH MAN!

        This post is so honest. Too many programs being promoted these days are so full of the FAST AND EASY SQUEEZE page that people really get confused about how much work is involved.

        What is not mentioned most of the time is that huge profits come from huge pockets full of money to outsource and use for PPC. The reality is that it is a lot of work.

        I outsource almost every single aspect of my business. The things I don't outsource are research and my SEO newsletter, which of course has to come directly from me since I can't outsource what's in my own head.

        My very first true affiliate sale came last year in May 2009. That money went into outsourcing. I paid to have articles written. Every dollar that I earned online went right back into outsourcing.

        Sometimes that's not possible if the money earned is needed to pay some bills, but every dollar you can save, is going to help you increase your business so much faster than doing it all alone.

        Outsourcing is a pain... this is a fact. I have put hours into training people who have flaked out or taken the super training they got from me and then with their increased skills stopped working for me because they could earn more from someone else who didn't train them but was willing to pay more.

        Drives me nuts. But... it is still worth it to outsource. You will find the gem of a gal or guy who will stick with you and work well. Just takes going through the flaky peeps to get to the quality workers who are loyal.

        Thanks again Travis for this great post,

    Thank you for the plan! It's necessary to have a clear path to follow when we are in the middle of information overload.

    I have found that any goal can be reached with consistent, daily action. (think in terms of weight loss, paying off debt, saving money, graduating college, etc.) It's consistent, daily actions that make the difference in all worthy efforts.

    Just a note that for newbies like myself, it will take much longer to carry out these steps because of the learning curve. I don't even know what a podcast is yet! Aaargh!

    Thanks again!

      It's funny you said that. I just finished Dave Ramsey's latest book on investments and he put it the exact same way. You can't expect to lose 30 pounds and be super fit with one day of exercise.

    Hello Travis........thanks for sharing the action plan.

    I found 33 keywords for a niche. It that enough keywords to get a solid site up using your plan?

    I want my sites to be kind of "beefy". I don't want to build 5 page "thin" sites.

    For this particular niche, I could only scrape up 33 buyer words. Each keyword
    having good ranking potential and each having 1000 or more searches a month.

      33 buyer keywords is a great place to start. You can always write content on lower searched keywords to give your site more material. Just focus your backlinks on the main 33...at first I would suggest your main 3.

    The OP are the kinds of posts this forum has been missing for awhile. Though the thread has received an overwhelming positive response, I'm still amazed at the criticism it's garnered. It's a forum post, not an e-book and it wasn't intended to be a comprehensive, step-by-step instructional guide. With so many newbies coming to the forum (and in IM in general) it's nice to see a post to give people a place to start or give them ideas.

    It's no wonder some Warriors are hesitant to share their tidbits of knowledge. Travis, I tip my hat off to you.

          It really shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to do it. You don't have to be super picky, just be in the right areas when you add people.

            Ok, now are you saying people that 'accept' you as friends, or simply 'adding' friends (and hoping they add you back?) If you mean people that actually 'accept' you, I'm finding it seems to take about 30 minutes - 1 hour just for that...

      Hi Travis,

      Great info here. I have a 1 and a half year old site that is earning me close to $200 per day now. All of my traffic is organic and mostly from google- about 150 visitors per day. I know I could be earning so much more if I put a little bit of effort into getting more traffic. I'm going to see how much traffic goes up after 28 days.

      I'm starting on day one and I already have a question. I've signed up with hootsuite but I can't figure out how to upload 30 days worth of messages. What am I not seeing?

        I'm just starting to get the hang of hootsuite. You click the little owl in the upper left corner and click assignments. From there you can schedule all your SM messages. I'm really loving this site and thanks Travis for introducing me to it!

    One thing I was curious about was: What do you do with the videos? Do you post them on a specific site or does anywhere do?

    Any other tips appreciate!

    I thought today I would share my 30 day strategy that I have used on every single one of my authority niche sites. I've also been teaching my friends this strategy and now 3 of them are full time internet marketers. So, I know this works. There is no secret to any of this. It's simple stuff.

    The main thing you must realize before you read anymore is that it's all about consistency. Search engine rankings, traffic generation, etc are all about consistency. In the beginning, if you want to see results sooner then later then you MUST do your required work everyday. If you follow the exact steps I am about to show you, then you will make money.

    This guide is about traffic generation. If you want to make money from the traffic, then you better have some sort of sales funnel set up. Either create a product or be an affiliate. It doesn't matter because you will make money either way. I like to start with an affiliate product in a niche until I have some good traffic coming, then I create a product. In a matter of how long it takes you to create the product, you just doubled/tripled your income.

    On to the guide.

    Day 1
    • Write 7 Articles (have them automatically posted 1 a day using wordpress)
    • Create accounts for social media sites Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare (whatever else you like...I only use these)
    • Create 30 days of social media messages (5 messages per day)
    • Sign up to hootsuite.com and upload all 30 days of messages to be sent to those social media sites automatically.
    • Add 50-100 followers, friends, etc on all social media sites (from now on when I say SM duties, you know this is what I'm referring to)
    Day 2
    • Record 7 Podcasts (just read what you wrote for the 7 articles the day before as material...this takes maybe 30 minutes)
    • SM duties
    • Find 5-10 popular forums in your niche...make accounts...pretty up accounts with info, pictures, links, etc.
    • Find 5-10 other bloggers in your niche and contact them about link swaps/guest post swaps
    Day 3
    • Create 7 Videos (use the exact podcast recording with a screen capture of a slideshow for each video)
    • SM Duties
    Day 4
    • Turn 7 articles into PDFs
    • SM Duties
    • Backlink Duties (From now on when I say BL duties you know it's referring to the list below)
      • Post 1 article to directories (I use ArticleBot, manual submit to EZA and GoArticles, spin twice and post to Buzzle and iSnare)
      • 5-10 relevant blog comments on related blogs
      • 1-10 forum posts per forum you found
      • Submit 1 video with TUbeModul
      • Submit 1 podcasts to radio websites (I usually make an iTunes channel for each niche...there is a WSO on it somewhere I think)
      • submit 1 PDF to scribd
      • Optional : 5-10 backlinks from high PR sites (I used to use angela's backlinks...but rarely do this anymore...it's been unnecessary for results)
      • Social Bookmark everything with OnlyWire
    Day 5
    • Write 3 press releases (1 about your website, 1 about something you are giving away, 1 about your product you're selling)

    RINSE AND REPEAT

    What this does is generate huge amounts of content quickly. It spreads it all across the web so there are so many ways to see your site it's sickening.

    After about 3 months, your content is going to be old enough for google to give it some love. You will start to see so many random visitors from keywords in your articles that you didn't target it's ridiculous.

    The longest day is about 6 hours of work when you do it all yourself. Your going to average 3-4 hours. Outsource and you could average 20 minutes of work.

    Now, the trick to getting big money from this is to perfect your sales funnel, article structure, keyword choice, squeeze page...pretty much your process. Even with a crappy system, you could see good money coming in.

    I suggest as soon as you have enough money coming in to outsource. All of the above steps can be outsourced...every single one of them. I suggest making a screen capture video of the exact process you take of submitting and creating everything...then you have something to send your outsourcers and you know they will get it right the first time.

    I like to add doing a once a week webinar/teleseminar in there too. It builds authority alot quicker and the viral effect of giving webinars rocks. Only takes an 30 minutes - hour and you can just rehash topics you've written articles on.

    As you can see this is all about consistency. My latest niche site has been up for 28 days and I had 320 visitors yesterday...that's without any search engine traffic too. SERPS usually take 3-6 months to kick in then you just have traffic out the ying yang.

    Things to help you get better results with this system:

    • Learn how to effectively write articles
    • Learn how to effectively do keyword research
    • Learn how to effectively target keywords in articles, videos, podcast descriptions
    • Learn how to use a website to direct your viewer to your sales funnel (good squeeze page, good video presentation, etc)
    • Learn how to email market well (All my content sends my viewers to my squeeze page which gets them on my email list...this is the only way I sell things..it might take a week or two longer to get a sale from the visitor but it increases my conversion rate from around 3% to 6%...doubled income)
    • Learn how to network (guest posts, link swaps, and social marketing platforms can bring you thousands of visitors a day alone when done correctly)
    • Learn how to position yourself as an authority (the articles, videos, podcasts, webinars, press releases, forum posts all help this a lot...don't act like a new guy in your industry though)
    • Don't be afraid to take a day off (even though this is a 28 day plan, you don't have to do it in 28 days. You can spread this over 3 months if you want. The results won't come as quickly, but they will come.)
    Okay, that's enough for me. I haven't posted about internet marketing in a while. I think I was getting the shakes. I've been working with too many small businesses that aren't even ready to learn this stuff...guess that's why they pay me the big bucks to hire someone else to do it .

    You can do this.

    Hi Travis, thanks so much for all the info you've given all of us. Your mentor program that you launching soon is going to be awesome and i'm gutted that it's too expensive for me

    Is there anyway you would be willing to sell the videos that you send out to your outsourcing staff as a package? Perhaps write up a campaign you did in the past (like a case study), package it up with the outsourcing videos and sell it at a cheaper price than your mentor program for us less privileged guys?

    I'm really thankful for the content you've shared anyway so even if you say no to my request you still rank very high in my books.

  • Travis,

    For the adding friends aspect, how did you go about doing that? Did you attach any particular kind of message/set up a profile a certain way, etc?

    For example, I was trying this on facebook... roughly 'adding' 30-40 people/day. After about 2-3 days, it does not allow adding friends any more...

    So... how did you get around that/provide value to those people, and successfully continue to add friends?

    - J
