$7885.09 So Far this Year And Pushing For More

47 replies
The main reason for this post is to help inspire the new internet marketers, Don't worry about what the news is saying, it is possible to make money in this day and age.

Stop worrying about not having money, go out and get money.

We are fortunate enough to be here and now, making money online. If enough people are making money online we will inspire others to start their own online businesses.

I am tired of hearing everyone cry about not having money, when I first started online I was flat broke, and had to walk to the library, to use the computer for an hour when I first started.

You can have all of the desire to have wealth in the world but unless you are actually taking action you will never succeed.

If you don't have money or time you need to figure out a way to make it work anyway.

create a squidoo lens with affiliate offers and write articles to promote it.

This is exactly how I got my start, now I will never have to worry about money again, and I am shopping for my first jaguar. It's used and it's only 20k but I will be able to buy it cash.


If you want to make money take a daily action, even if it is only 2 articles a day you are still taking positive steps in the right direction.

Anytime you learn something new put it to use right away. The time to be successful is now.

    "this year" like in "january"? RESPECT!

    My year is also starting out pretty good, although i am far from your earnings (yet)

    Yes, i also always recommend giving Squidoo a shot, in addition to Article Marketing and Press Releases.

    Great post.

    One suggestion though - don't go for a jag, unless you have another $20k to spend in repairs in the next few months My friend had a 2003 Jag and it kept on falling into pieces, so he got fed up and purchased a 2008 Jag, brand new... 1 month later his transmission died - and it was automatic!!! So not like he could have killed the clutch Infact Jaguar is one of the least reliable cars in the world. Sorry for the offtopic.

        Yeah, but a driver can't possibly mess it up as in driving a manual car.
        So it was messed up on a car with 0 miles on it... it took Jaguar 2 months to repair and they refused to give a courtesy car or pay for a rental... My point was and still is: JAGUAR sucks

    Thanks Alex, I was also considering a bmw, anyway squidoo is great to get a start, I use to use only free methods, but now that I am able to I use alot of ppc for my niche stores.

    But if it wasnt for article marketing, squidoo, and clickbank, I dont know where I would be right now.

    I do suggest to anyone using free methods, always use a part of your earnings to invest into your business

      The same exactly story here
      I started in October 2007... only Squidoo, Articles and Clickbank. In spring 2008 (6 months since I started) I was averaging $7,000+/month - using the same exactly methods Only Bum Marketing! If proper effort is invested, everything is possible.

        Alex, that is really great. I make a nice income flipping sites. I have not been able to replicate my success with affiliate promotions. One exception to this is the bunch of sites I built after reading NMOC. Those sites, each written around one (real, physical) product have produced income for me even though I set them up in only one day. I guess I should have continued building those sites. It was a mistake to abandon a working strategy. Oh well, live and learn.

      when I first started I wrote about 5 articles a day, and it seemed time consuming at first, but now I can crank out a quality article in about 5 minutes.

      It does work from my experience, In my first week I made 500 dollars just using article marketing.

      I now use many other strategies, but from my own personal experience it does work.

      This is the exact reason over 60% of new businesses fail (I am sure the number is even higher in Online Business). People want to magically make money fast without investing any effort or time.

      I am sorry, but this just isn't going to happen. Look at Facebook, Twitter, Youtube - it took them a lot of effort, at least a few years and MILLIONS of investment... If you do not have millions to invest, it will certainly take you even more time and effort to succeed.

      The answer is quite simple:
      You want to make lots of money fast? Win a jackpot at the casino... otherwise you will have to put in at least your time and effort.

    When you all say that we must write several articles per day,...is it about the exactly same subject?

    I mean,...Let'say I am promoting only 2 offers that pay me about 60$ for every sale.

    What Should I do? write 3/5 articles per day about those 2 products?

      I generally write around 3-5 original articles for my one site now. Then after they are approved at eza i'll submitt them to others. This seems to get me quit a bit of traffic so far. I'm also doing alot of other work to get traffic though. It seems that articles from eza account for around 80% of my traffic right now. I just started this site about 12 days ago.

          Squidoo is GREAT but do not forget about Hubpages WP and blogger . And linking them all together in a strategic linking pattern . And writing at least one article and submitting it a day for each of them .

          This is a little method I use to help me cover all the bases .

          I am sure there are other places as well like wetpaint that i forgot to mention but to be honest be creative . Explore just do not cookie cut and THINK for yourself . Honestly be innovative and coming up with your own methods that work for you is truly the only way to REALLY survive in this industry . As if you are doing the EXACT same thing that everyone else is doing WHAT will set you apart from them ?

          By the way I actually outsource my article writing as I am Lazy . But that works for me I have a very dependable article marketer and what I pay him I get way more of a return on .

      I would say 2-3 articles per product each day.

      I usually focus on one project at a time until it is converting well, then move to ppc.

    Thanks for your responses. But I meant this:

    Let's say I am promoting a Web Hosting Service. I should write about 2-3 articles per day talking about web hosting? So, at the end of the month I should have written 90 articles talking about web hosting?

    How can i find so many ideas to talk about On specific sbuject without having to repeat again and again what I just wrote?

      Well as long as you use different wording each time you are good to go . It seems redundant and personally I hate writing articles so I do not .

      Brother find you a good article writer .

      BTW 2-3 articles ? Try 5 to 10 you want 1 to 2 per gateway a day . I have 5 gateways I like to use .

      I use the google keyword tool to come up with article Ideas, I try to write 3-5 different titles for each keyword.

      then when I have my titles I have an outline of things to get done.

      On top of that I am writing articles based on what people are searching for.

      It was mainly for 2 products, I had about 50 articles, 5 Squidoo pages.

      I still write articles but to promote other things, I am slowly moving away from Clickbank for my own reasons

        Hi NicolasB & Alex. Thanks For the posts. Very inspiring.
        I have a quick question for you (and everyone else);

        Is it in your opinion better to link to your own presale page (like squidoo) or is it better to link directly the CB product?

        (I know there can be problems with linking directly, but there are ways to work around that...website forwards).

      I am just focusing on actual physical products alot more now, I can find suppliers and negotiate a deal.

      The margins are alot higher, and an e commerce can be set up quick, and making money fast

      they also sell for a large amount.

    I started much the same way last year then got into Michael Cheneys Golden Thread program. Articles have been the main contributor of my small list rising from 0 to 82 in the space of 5 weeks. Not lightning fast I know but its a start and it has created 3 sales without the need for PPC.

    A lot of people think that just by THINKING about succeeding is going to get them somewhere. Look at the MOVIE THE SECRET....It tells people to THINK what they want and that is great but if you don't take action and "HUSTLE", you will never have real success.

    EZA will also not publish new articles if they believe it is "duplicate content" or a reworded article you have already written.

    They will not approve direct links to affiliate products. Only to some kind of landing page with links.

    No automatic redirects even if they go through your site either.
