Five Steps to $100 Dollar Days

36 replies
Hi Warriors

What I have learned that making money online is not about uncovering some wonder niche or top secret.

It is about finding a process that works and simply repeating it.

Here is the basic process map I use to make money online selling CB products. There is no reason why you can not use this as a template to start making $100 per day (I make more than this most days).

1 Go to Clickbank select a product to promote

Choose gravity higher than 40 and less than 100 (some interesting posts in the forum about gravity). Generally I avoid the insanely high gravity products.

Check the site and make sure it is not leaky – no alternative payment methods other than CB. Do not select a site with lots of links to other sites or products.

Make sure the site looks professional, ask yourself would you buy from it.

2 Get Some Keywords - Run the sites url through Googles keyword research tool.

Analyse the results and brainstorm, you are looking for keywords with lots of searches and low competition.

Make a small list of say 5 – 10 keywords that include an intention to buy. Therefore you may have to refine some of the original results and check searches against keywords that include this intention.

Example
So if you where looking at a dog training site you may get “dog training” as a result. This could be refined to “low cost dog training” which suggests someone wants to pay.


3 Check the competition – Go to Google and see how many people are competing not for your KEYWORDS – not the site itself.

Look for 12000 or less competing sites

Check to see if the top results are optimised for the keyword – sometimes you will find the top 3 -5 may have a single word different (all good if this is the case).

Take a look at the PR of the top 5 results and if the are PR4 and higher try another keyword. If the top 3 are PR3 and less you have a winner.

4 Create a Landing Page – Build either a mini-site or landing page around your keywords.

If you can buy the dot com with your best keyword do it.

IMPORTANT Include a free offer on the page, see if the site you are promoting has any giveaways you can use in their affiliate tools area.

Include an opt-in form – use Aweber or one of the other services, we want to capture leads. Write several follow up email – check affiliate tools again as they may be there already/

5 Generate Traffic – Write articles around your keywords and publish on Ezine Articles.

If you have done your keyword research well you should get good rankings on Google – to boost this create back linking to your articles. Do not stop until you get on to page 1 in the top 3.

Personally I love articles because the create long term traffic and are easy to do. You may want to do a hubpage or squidoo lense ... not going lie I do neither.

You are welcome to use this or a variation of it to build your own business.
If you have any questions you can pm or comment on here.

    That is some really good advice there straight and to the point. I have been working on all my resource boxes and changing them all to go to real websites like review pages and not just a redirect to the vendor.

    I think it is going to improve my conversion rate.

    Thanks for the tips,
    Shannon

    Thanks some insightful information there. What are your own personal reasons for choosing a product with a gravity of less than 100.

    Also I have never heard of putting a url in the Google Keyword Tool.

    Finally the only thing I would disagree with is keeping the competing sites below 12,000. In all honesty that number does not make any difference. Its all about whats on the first page in terms of the strength of competition.

      Hi Dave

      In response to your question about Gravity I did a bunch of research about this and found that products with Gravities between 50 - 70% convert best for me.

      Above 100 tends to be a lot of hysterical action - big launches, lots of noobs trying and giving up.

      I actually researched in the forum as well and this was confirmed.

      You are right about strength of competition over quantity is important. However the amount of competition is also a factor so I just use the 12000 as a crude thermometer ... normally the SOC is less around this number.

        This is great plan that if people put into action will produce results.

        The only thing I recommend considering...

        Imagine replacing Clickbank with your own product?

        Your profit margin would be much higher over the long haul. It might take a little investment of time on the front end, but it's much easier than people realize...especially with all the great PLR available for practically every niche. Add to that the super cheap $7 Secrets Script and your whole setup could be up and running in only a short while...with sales page, email capture, one-time-offer, product delivery, etc.

        Just something to consider.

        Thanks for the outline though,
        Derek

          What a great addition to a great post. As you say, as with most other stategies, they will work, if you work them. It's those individuals that skip from one "silver bullet" to another that come to the conclusion that nothing works.

          All the best

    I do agree that having your own product is great.

    However there is still plenty of money to be made promoting other peoples stuff ... no doubt!

    Hmm, I bought a domain last week that was an exact match keyword phrase with 40,000 global monthly searches. I was thinking about using a CB product, but the gravity is only 16.67 and there are 15,100,000 competing sites, the top three have a site PR of 10, but my tool isn't working to find out what the PR is for that specific keyword. WebMD.com and Kidshealth.com are the two sites in the top three. Would you just let this one go, or would you give it a shot?

      You say that as if you'd prefer a higher gravity? 16.67 is much higher than the gravities of both the two best-converting, best-selling products I promote as an affiliate (I do promote some others with much higher gravities, too).

      You might find this post interesting.

      This isn't relevant at all, Ashley. You're competing with only 5 of them anyway. It makes absolutely no difference at all whether those 5 have another 995 sites behind them, or another 15,099,995.

      Ah. Now that's a different matter. That, I admit, might put me off a little. Not necessarily, if I think I can get enough traffic from other keywords and/or from 4th place for that one, and/or if I particularly want to promote that product because of its sales page or whatever; but it's true that I might instinctively be a little reluctant to enter a niche with a site which I know I can't rank higher than 4th for the main keyword.

        Alexa, thank you so much for breaking that down for me. I took a look at the post you linked to as well. I'm getting a great education this morning.

      My tool is working now, the PR for the top three websites is PR 5, not 10. Would you go for it? I have the exact keyword phrase domain. The fourth website is also PR 5, but the fifth is PR 0.

        Sounds like a tough call but go to say that I would not go for this. If number one and number three both have a PR of 5 then you are going to have a scrab on. What PR is number 2 slot?

    Sorry dude, this doesn't matter at all. The strength of the sites at the top spots is what you need to be concerned about. The rest is just white noise, and you can ignore it.

    Nice post! But I have to add that you have to use a good keyword research tool like Market Samurai for your keyword research so that you don't get misleading information in regards to the search volumes, etc.

    Also, make sure that the articles you write have a good keyword density.

      Getting traffic at all is where most people fail. As long as you do your keyword research well and are practiced at article creation then it is possible.

      I get a ton of traffic through my efforts

    Number 2 is also PR5. I am wondering though if maybe the number 4 spot wouldn't be too bad. The number one site is kidshealth.com, and number two site is webmd.com When I am searching for the type of info in this niche, I usually go right past those types of sites because it is just generic info, not usually what I am looking for.

    However, if I am going to try this method, I want it to be something I can win. I could really use some confidence and success. Maybe I can just shelve this specific niche and once I have some success go after it.

    Thanks for this post though, it has been really eye opening.

      Ashley,
      Instead of shelving the niche - why not just use a different keyword that you could rank better for?

      I have so many different cases where I have been able to rank in the top of the search engines, by simply choosing different keywords to tackle

        Well the reason I wanted to use that particular keyword phrase is because I already bought the exact match domain for it. But you are right, if I'm not going to be able to rank well for it, that doesn't really matter, does it? I guess my question was and still is, would it be possible to beat out those other two sites in Google? And is that a task that I as a relative newbie to IM would want to tackle, especially since I have yet to get a site ranked in top three. I do have one ranked at #6 on page 1.

    I am building a new campaign on this exact model, but I'm making my OWN site have all of the articles first, to build an authority with many ranked pages and a decent page rank rather than linking to tons of different articles. I'm torn between offering an opt in or not though, part of me wants to just have review pages and be able to knock out more of them.

      I'm afraid I can't agree with the order of steps 1 and 2, IMHO they should be switched. It's worthless to spend your time to choose a product only to find out there are no useful KWs around it.

      Other than that, no objections, although you should have pointed out that this road takes some time and it massively depends on good keyword research...

        Think that is a matter of preference ... if I think a product will convert I do not mind doing the keyword research.

        Equally you could uncover keywords and not find a profitable product.

        Hey mate, all good

        Ive just checked and the gravity on one of my products has gone up a little. Its now a whopping 1.80. It used to be 0.04!

        I have an affiliate on this product that is doing about 2% conversion rates and whilst the search volume isnt anything to write home about, it does prove that lower gravity can be profitable.

        Im a product creator, I dont really get into affiliate stuff, although I do with new sites, throw an affiliate product on until traffic and interest is proven. It prevents wasting time/money.
