Was I anything close to a success back then?
I did not practice the things I was preaching in the ebook and made all the classic mistakes most newbies make.
I knew what to do but I did not do it! I instead went from idea to idea all the time.
However whats funny is reading the ebook today it's actually really good and most of what I wrote, was sound advice.
This brings me to my point.
If you have been here on the warrior forum for a considerable length of time, you already have all the knowledge you need to make money online.
If you go around on the forums repeating what the more experienced members always tell us, things like :
- Stick to one method
- Make your first dollar and scale it up
- Get targetted traffic
- etc etc
You need an offer and targeted traffic it's that simple.
The offer can be a CB or amazon product, your own ebook or adsense/cpa ads it doesnt matter, they'll all make you money if you get the traffic to them.
Targeted traffic? No problem.
If you want free, write articles and focus on seo, its a easy way to start off.
Don't write 1 article per day. Are you serious about this or not?! Write as many as you can! Somedays you wont want to work, that's fine take a break but keep going and don't quit completely. (IM is a long term game of consistent action)
Yes quality counts, but quantity counts even more. You could have 10 of the best articles - perfectly written, but in most cases having X2, X3 etc will do you much better.
You can search for keywords to target here Google.
Target buying keywords not info ones. Type your niche plus "buy" "for sale" "reviews" "cheap" etc and start writing! Don't listen to people saying only target words that get 1000+ monthly searches, thats rubbish! I target many that only get 50-100. Since they are buying keywords, it makes it well worth it and you won't need to spend much time getting backlinks.
Do some pinging, ping.fm and Ping-o-Matic! and later on submit to Ezine Articles (I get a good amount of traffic from this directory)
and you're set!
Yes you can do more backlinking or focus on youtube/forum traffic if you wish but you don't need to, the money will come in time and articles and seo is basically guaranteed.
Heck I've made adsense blogs and gotten clicks a few days after. I mean a completely new site. It's so easy to make money it makes me sick it took me 6 years for things to click and for me to start doing what I should do.
Remember make a site with an offer and drive targeted traffic to it, that's it!
I don't want to go too deep in specifics as this is more a motivational post. And I do want to say, I'm not perfect, nobody is. I could do a lot more work than I currently do, but compared to 2 years ago, I've come up leaps and bounds and I know you can too.
Please get your finger out your ass, your eyes off the forum and put your wallet back in your pocket
You probably already know what you should be doing, so now just do it.
