My Simple $2000+/ Month IM Plan (2 Years To Figure it out, but it was worth it)

33 replies
I just wanted to share my simple money making system with...

This work in any niche, and you don't need a lot of money at all to start. I teach this method in my private coaching program, and my last student is now at $800 per month and growing (and he is just at the step #2 in my plan: promoting affiliate products).

He was on the web for 2 years and spend more than $3000 on various IM products.

This system is so simple when you think about it.

Here is how I make money, and how you can do it too:

1. Find a BIG profitable niche with plenty of SERIAL (I call them serial buyers because they are MORE than desperate. They just buy, and buy again...) buyers.

Example: Internet Marketing

2. Find a sub-niche in this niche

Example: Article Marketing

NOTE: At this point, if you want to start making some cash, you can start to promote affiliate products (while you are working on the plan).

3. Become an expert in this niche

or...

Interview 5 or 6 experts (Audio or Written)


4. Flagship Product creation + Traffic

Create your $20 ebook

* The "Interview ebook" is the faster way to do it.

It doesn't need to be a long ebook. Keep it short, less than 30 pages.

TRAFFIC:

These works:

1. PPC
2. Web 20
3. Forums in your niche
4. Article Marketing
5. SEO
6. etc...

Note: Outsourcing is the way to go. You don't want to spend 12 HOURS in front of your laptop (I've been there, and I can tell you that it's really WEIRD... Do this only if you are REALLY broke. If you have the cash, invest in your business. Don't let scarcity kill your potential).

5. Upsell

You will create another related product that you will sell just after someone buy your main $20 ebook.

In other words, once someone buy your $20 ebook, he will see your second offer (price it between $30-$47).

6. List building

Very Important: make sure that you automatically add your buyers into an autoresponder.

Important: develop a strong relationship with your list. Just be yourself, imagine that your family and best friends are in your list. Would you send them junk?

7. Backend

Send other products (yours/affiliates) to your autoresponder subscribers.

Make sure that your promo messages educate your prospects.

8. Coaching

Now that you have buyers in your autoresponder, ask them what is their biggest challenge and biggest frustration, and then, create a coaching program (it will depends on the niche, for example, mine is $497 in the IM niche).

9. Increase your profits

At this point, you should be earning a couple of hundreds or thousands per month.

Develop more products that lead to your coaching program.

10. Enjoy the IM lifestyle, travel all other the word, etc...


Note:: I didn't even add YOUR OWN affiliates... because this is how I do it, and I am not heavy on JV partners yet (although this is going to change - once I manage to get a horde of affiliates to promote my products, I'll include this in my plan).

This work very well.

Thanks for reading.

It seems basic, but believe me, it works very well, so if you think this is a business model for you, just go for it.

Last thing, I'd like to know what prevent you to do this?

Franck.

    Great advice. Thanks. I think many a new user will love to have this post. This everyone here should read it, twice.

    Simple, complete basic blueprint. Your right too, outsource what you can or if you can. I know many new marketers are afraid to spent a few dollars on article marketing outsourcing, but more then willing to buy a $50 book. Spend the money wisely, then buy book s later if you want more stuff to read.

    The basics often work best.

      Hey guys,

      I'm glad that you like it.

      Kiackee, like you, I've seen many blueprints in the past, and didn't follow them because I thought that they were to basics.

      I was so wrong... and I know that many beginners ALREADY know what they need to earn 4 figures online. The only problem is that they think it's too good to be true and don't do what they just learned.

      Advice: Do something every single day to improve your business, even if it's just adding a new email to your autoresponder series.

      Franck

          Hey Franck

          This is just a simple and straight forward outline of my next step. I've got the affiliate marketing in place and I'm about at the stage where I can set it and almost forget it and still be making money.

          So yep, product creation is where my thoughts are turning now, espcially as I have a couple of steady little lists growing and what's more importantly, they're talking to me!

          Thanks for this outline, really good.

          Jenni

    Jenni,

    I found that product creation and getting affiliates and JV partners promoting for you is sweeter than affiliate marketing.

    It's great to see that your customers love your products.

    Did you and your students make money from the make money Online niche and sub niches? Or from Non-Make money online niches.

      I make money in the MMOL and other niches as well. As for my students, they are not in the MMOL niche.

    Hi aboutalhah,

    Thanks for providing some great insights there!
    I agree with all of what you stated because I'm
    using them myself

    I haven't got it all in place just yet but that's
    definitely the plan that I've got in place already~

    Great post! A nice simple breaking down to basics blueprint. Would agree that outsourcing is great to do with whatever you can to save time. Its probably better to invest some money in quality article outsourcing first (warrior's for hire is a terrific source) and most people are probably going to spend their money on training products before hiring a outsourcer, so its always the best way to go. Get the sourcing done first, then buy the products!

    Great success! that is so nice to hear. There's always a process to achieve our goals, what is important is to give back what is due to our subscriber/readers so that they will trust us more and will be loyal to us in the end.

    I like this. Simple and straight forward. But this is what people always skip and look for the next big thing. They end up chasing their tail. As long as you focus on these basics, you are onto something.

    That's pretty much the IM biz model. The details are different for different people but this is the basic model everyone should use.

    The list and high end coaching is the gem of this post. You won't make 10,000+ a month very easily with 20-100 dollar ebooks. However, you don't have to sell many $497 coaching programs to get close to 10k a month.

    Great post!

    Cheers,

    Brad Spencer

    Just saw this (a bit late), but thank you for the comment Bobby.

    What is hard is staying focused on the "boring" part of our Internet business, like testing, adding more messages to your autoresponders, taking care of your existing clients (instead of forgetting them and chasing others all the time.)

    I'm glad I've learned about LCV (Lifetime Customer Value) and CA (Cost per acquisition) lately.

    Thanks,
