Is what I want even possible?

So I am sitting here like I do every night thinking about how I want to make money. And tonight, instead of writing an article or backlinking or doing other stuff that has lead to little success, I just thought.

I came up with a list of what I want and was wondering if it is even possible.

So here it is, you be the judge!
  • I want to make money
  • I do not want to host a website
  • I do not want to create a product
  • I do not want to pay more for advertising than I am making
  • I want products that will be around for a while so I can earn recurring commissions
  • I don't want a bunch of crap or courses that dont work
  • I want solid products that people want
  • I want affiliate links like CB has that I can point directly too and google won't destroy me for it
  • If I absolutely have to have my own website, I want one that has a wordpress template and plugins that fill everything out and don't look like garbage.
  • I want money..... Did I say that already?
Any how thats basically it. I do not mind blogging, or writing some articles, or doing backlinks. I just don't want to spend my time doing it and then have the articles get buried.

SO how do i make this work.

Oh and an off the mark question. Can an affiliate link or "hoplink" be ranked in google?

    Sure you can make money.

    Problem is you have a lot of "don't wants" in there. So you want to be rich but there's lots you dont want to do, to get there.

    I do quite well now but I've had to do lots of things I didn't necessarily love doing to get there. You also won't likely get there on your first attempt. You will buy crap and you probably will fail a few times.

    Does that matter if you get to where you want to?

    You want to get rich with IM but don't want to host a site or create a product. Well that could well narrow your chances.

    Why do you want to make lots of money? Why would you put barriers up to stop yourself getting there?

    You either want it bad enough or you don't.

    There's also a lot more to life than just making money.

    you can promote or dropship or what ever - but what has now been determined for sure is you want to follow some kind of affiliate model most likely or find something with MRR[*]I do not want to pay more for advertising than I am making

    Then I recommend you invest some time learning adwords and other PPC models. There are tons of keywords that can be had for less and the ROI is more - but you will need to formulate your process for finding them [*]I want products that will be around for a while so I can earn recurring commissions

    Then you might want to look into promoting membership models and make a list of evergreen niches[*]I don't want a bunch of crap or courses that dont work

    Once you figure out more of what you do want, the courses that may benefit you will become more apparent as you will know the right questions you are looking to have answered.[*]I want solid products that people want

    These are all over the place. Take a look around your house.[*]I want affiliate links like CB has that I can point directly too and google won't destroy me for it

    Why do you think google will destroy you for affiliate links???[*]If I absolutely have to have my own website, I want one that has a wordpress template and plugins that fill everything out and don't look like garbage.

    This can be purchased to be done for you for $200 or less[*]I want money..... Did I say that already?[/LIST]Any how thats basically it. I do not mind blogging, or writing some articles, or doing backlinks. I just don't want to spend my time doing it and then have the articles get buried.

    I don't think you can rank a "hoplink." Google ranks pages which happen to have hoplinks on them.

      You want -

      money
      products with sales that are evergreen
      good products

      That part isn't hard and is possible.

      You don't want -

      to host a website
      to create your own product
      to pay for advertising until you earn (that's a conundrum)
      courses that don't work FOR YOU
      to write articles or do backlinks unless you are guaranteed they will stay at the top over time

      If you want to make money online - you do what is necessary. That includes moving some of your "don't wants" to the list of what you are willing to do.

      If you work a job offline, you don't get to do only the work you enjoy and avoid tasks you don't like (at least not if you plan to keep getting a paycheck). The same is true of a business online. The more you limit the tasks you are willing to do - the more you limit your chances to earn money online.

    If you don't want to write the articles, you could outsource them to people here or on bidding sites like oDesk and Guru. Article marketing can really help your business efforts.

    Good luck!

    I think identifying what you don't want is a great idea. Keep digging until you find the business model that meets your criteria. Try to learn all you can, and it might turn out that you can actually do some of the things you say you don't want to do, or you will learn to work around them. As long as you do that, you're getting closer to your dream.

    Send traffic to your blog while building an email list. Traffic equals subscribers and subscribers equals money.

    I bet you can take it from there!

    Put in the hard work and success will come, it's a simple as that. Make sure that hard work is also smart and efficient or you will spin your wheels. Be educated.

    I can NOT rank any affiliate link in the search engines, don't even brother wasting your time. From what I can get from this is, you want to make money, but you don't want to do any of the work.

    Well my answer is this: "You must design a business model that will work for you"

    The good news is, I share a lot of what you want and don't want. I too don't want to spend my time doing all the little work. So where is what I designed.

    Step 1: Build My Audience
    - This is my list, it could be an email list, RSS readers, youtube subscribers, twitter followers, facebook friends, etc...The point is to build a list of people, in which you can do step 2 with.

    Step 2: Build My Income Producing Assets
    - In this step, after you have build up a strong audience, you simple create high value offers and sell stuff to your audience. Preferably things that produce passive income.

    I hope that helps, it more of a mindset thing. But those are the two things you should be focusing on. Building your audience and then selling stuff to them. Easiest model in the world, just takes some time to set up.

    I think you can make money without having to do any of the things you don't want to do by having a list (or many lists)

    But wait! You need a squeeze page and that means a website, right? Wrong! There is actually a super easy way to collect emails without any website - fellow warrior Maddi Murtaza shows you how in his WSO here:

    http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...anscripts.html

    Having a list is actually better than just redirecting affiliate links to CB products because you have the opportunity to sell them more than 1 product!

    Of course, you will have to come up with an email series, but once that is written you just plug it into your autoresponder and it's done.

    Now, you do need to drive traffic to your opt-in - I would suggest doing that with articles and you will probably have to backlink those to get them ranked but once you start making money, you can just outsource both of those.

    Going to the last question, I don't thing hop links are ranked.
    Re, how you are going to make it work? It is really up to you. Based on your list, there are items there that you can make money without. But others, you must have to make money. And, lastly, be prepared for a long grind before you can even see a decent buck in your account.

      Hey Will,

      Too many what you wants and not enough helping others get what they want IMHO. Everyone says traffic is the solution, when in reality testimonials are where making money always begins.

      Cheers,

    Yeah, like mentioned above ... it sounds like chasing money and doing a fast cash / quicker crash, "get rich quick" kinda thing. It just doesn't last.

    Instead of a bunch of "I don't want to's..." how about listing some "Here's what I can do, how can I make it work..." things you do want to do...?

    I guess if you didn't care to completely rely on the mercy other web properties and wanted to just grab any money you can ... you could try being a YouTube partner (which will require continual work/videos each week) or just trade money for hours doing video promotions, articles, etc, etc without owning/having control of the properties. How long will it last though... who knows.

    It sounds to me like you probably suffer from the common affliction called "shiny object syndrome" (ask me how I know the ailment). I think you should follow the same advice I regret having repeatedly failed to follow-don't keep changing horses so often-give one a chance to get up to a gallop before dismissing it and moving on to the next.

    It's like the old saying, 'If it were easy, my kid would do it'. I feel most satisfied and content with my accomplishments at the end of the toughest days. Conquering those tough days makes me stronger. They help me move closer to my goals. It's kind of like eating your vegetables, you may not like them, but they are good for you.
