3 Step Plan To Making Money In 60 Days or Less

7 replies
Hey Warriors,

I just wanted to share with you something that some people aren't getting...

You shouldn't sell make money/internet marketing products, even as an affiliate or a reseller, if you aren't making money yourself. It just doesn't make sense...and you simply aren't going to make as much money.

Here's a PM I received from someone asking for advice and help...it's also a deadly simple and quick business plan that will work for just about anyone who sticks to it.

Hi [NAME OMITTED],

My first piece of advice to you is that you're selling and talking about things that you might not know much about. I don't mean this as a slap in the face, so please don't take it that way, but it doesn't make sense sell "make money" or "internet marketing" related products (or have websites on the market) if you aren't making a whole lot of money in it, wouldn't you agree?

If you want to make money, it's simple...

1.) Create a blog on something that actually interests you. The topic doesn't matter, as long as you enjoy talking about it.

2.) Get traffic to the blog by creating backlinks, submitting articles, posting in related forums.

3.) Don't stop. Keep posting on your blog, and keep advertising.

Once you have a steady stream of traffic, then you can start creating profit by advertising, affiliate products, and so on. The good news is that you're ahead of most others since you've been learning about IM. You can SEO optimize your blog postings, research keywords related to your topic, and so on.

It'll take a couple months for you to see results, but it'll work and it'll give you a small, steady income that you can start to grow.

The key is to focus and grow your blog. Don't focus on anything else. It sounds dead simple, but it works. Just don't stop...

---

The most important parts...

1.) Focus on one blog, one project, and just keep doing it. Don't focus for a day or two. Focus for a couple of months. Don't stop.

2.) You're not going to see immediate results. You need to "prove yourself" to Google. If you keep plugging in new, high quality content, every single day, you'll succeed. You'll get noticed. Don't stop.

3.) Post everywhere and anywhere you can about your blog. Link to individual postings. Check Yahoo Answers. Write more articles and put them on EzineArticles and other directories. Don't stop.

4.) Have I mentioned don't stop?

Keep focusing and you can do anything. Really...

Best of luck, Warriors. I know you can do it.

Matt

    I don't really think this is entirely true.

    It's fairly easy to learn how people are making money, and write about it.

    Let take a quick example outside of the IM niche. Travis is a great guy who created an excellent sales letter, and product in the dating niche (magic of making up). I'm fairly certain Travis isn't a licensed psychologist or someone who had a great amount of experience in counseling couples in getting back together.

    In fact, Travis even states in one of his affiliate reports that he merely just got involved in some online communities, and paid attention as to what many people were seeking in the dating niche, how to make up....

    What if Travis said... "Ah I can't enter this niche, I've never helped people make up." He'd have a lot less $ in his bank account right now.

    Here are the only things you really need to understand.

    1. Pick a niche that is huge, has rabid buyers, and competition.
    2. Find the people who are successfully selling things in this market.
    3. Replicate what they are doing.

    That's all there really is to this. Just ride the wave, as someone else on here said.

    I agree with maverick80.

    I DO believe you need to be honest in your marketing. But that doesn't mean you can't sell something that you don't know much about. For example, if you're a reseller of a product made by someone else (ie. the person making lots of money and teaching it), you can rely on the author's credibility as the expert. You're merely the marketer of the information.

    PS- I do agree with most of Matt's points too... especially the "Don't stop" part

    Matt;

    Very good post...

    Matt you are exactly right...until internet marketers start to make some money within their chosen niche, their ability to be viewed as an expert and grow will be greatly limited.

    It's human nature though, for people to want to move faster than their personal and/or business skill level is.

    I run a business develop firm, where we specialize in turning around struggling companies and helping firms rapidly grow. Even in the business-to-business world most(over 90%) of the companies I have worked with, struggle to grow because they have positioned themselves improperly within their market.

    Growth is always easier when you position yourself as an expert within a market who looks up to you instead of questioning your experience and expertise.

    maverick80,

    There are 2 big differences between Travis and the "common person"...

    1.) Travis had a list of 10,000 people which he turned into affiliates for his product. That helped boost the gravity immediately and get new products.

    2.) He says he had read other products and then improved on those with his own ideas.

    I'm not saying no one should enter a niche they don't totally understand. My point was that folks can't claim they know how to make $10,000 per month if they aren't doing it themselves, or how to create a real online business and sell that product to other people.

    I do really like your plan though, that's a solid idea. Do what others are doing better, and do it better. Find out where they're advertising and simply become a direct competitor. If they offer a manual, offer a manual and videos, and so on.

    Hopefully you understand what I was going for. ;-)

    Matt

    Hey Matt,

    I definitely agreed with most of what you said, sorry should have stated that. You and your brother put out great stuff, and are really good at what you do.

    But, here is something I've been noticing. It can really pay to have a list in the IM niche. As you stated Travis was able to leverage his existing IM list to launch a product outside the IM niche. With a large IM list you have a wealth of affiliates at your disposal for any product launch IM or not.

    So, it begs the question. If you're someone who really wants to start creating info products, it seems to me the logical choice is to start in the IM market.

    How about this....

    1. Replicate a successful IM product, put your own spin on it etc.
    2. Offer 100% of the commission to attract affiliates/JV partners.
    3. Have a OTO so you can still make $ on the back end.
    4. Use the Rapid Action Profits script to have people automatically added to your auto responder. Now you have a list of IM buyers, and possible future affiliates.
    5. Rinse and repeat this a couple times with different IM products, to grow your list.
    6. Develop an offer in another niche, and get it to convert well.
    7. Let your list of IM'ers know about your new product that converts.
    8. Give them free stuff to help sell it.

    Lastly, there really seems to be a lot more opportunities to JV in the IM niche then any other. I dunno? What does everyone else think?

    Honesty is key. I agree with you, Matt, that it's a bad idea to sell "make money" information when you're not making any. The only way to do it honestly I think is if your clear that you don't have experience making money.

    Simply studying what other people say and never trying it yourself... again, unless your honest about it, I don't think cuts it. You've got to experience something to find out what really works and what doesn't. A lot of "fake-it-til-you-make-it" types learn that the hard way.

    If a surfer tells you everything you need to know about surfing, but you've never done it before, are you ready to give surfing lessons? I doubt it.

    Hiring an expert to write the content you sell is different... and I don't think would happen in a "make money" niche.

    Now this is what I'm talking about.

    Two different viewpoints, both presenting workable ways to make money online and no fighting.

    This is the Warrior Forum I know.
