Newbie's First Steps Into IM.

23 replies
Hello everyone,
So, I started internet marketing approximately one month ago.
I tried a few things and would like to have your tips and advice to help me go ahead.
I flipped a site for $105. With minimum time and money spending. Now flipping one more for $50. But it is a very low amount for me. I mean next month I want to shift to New York, and it would be a good challenge for me. I don't wanna apply for a job, wanna just try internet marketing. I need $1500 for the start to make me believe in myself let's say
I also tried adsense stuff. I created a site with high CPC but have no idea how to drive traffic to high competition keyword. I don't know SEO and I wanted to ask, how can I drive traffic and get clicks? PPC traffic?
Second thing is my another idea. I want to work with clients. I mean finding clients to create sites for them for huge $$$ or placing their links on my site for $. I don't know how to find clients. I tried emailing and calling them but none of them answered. I emailed just 10 people and called just 5.
So how to find clients? Any tips?

Regards, tobaccosky.

    you should do seo work for you high cpc keyword site. if you don't know anything about seo just use google to find all the info you need.

    you can always outsource seo if you have some cash to invest.

    I started also in flipping website when I was new in internet marketing. If you made $105 from selling a site, meaning selling website work right?

    Why not flip 15 site a month to earn your target earnings per month. You already find a way to make money online, all you have to do now is leverage it to make more money from it.

    While you're making money from flipping sites, you can slowly trying other ways to make money.

    Yeah, you know but I find flipping sites is not that profitable like finding clients. I want something big. I know, I should start from zero and then become a hero but I am willing to try to make more money.
    But, I will still flip sites, because I know how to create professional websites and I make just $100 from two sales while people from one crappy site make around $1,000. It is inspiring me.

      Well you can try offering some local company a service like creating their website, Offering SEO service.

      If you can't handle the orders the offshore them for you to accommodate as many customers as you can.

    Drop what you're doing and go into list building. Yes, there's a lot of potential in flipping sites (in fact I sold one for 5k last month) but its a time consuming process which you're better off outsourcing.

    List building is by far the most easiest and fastest way I know to get your ROI fast. There's a ton of tips on list building on these forums. Once you start you got enough money to outsource whatever you need for your next project

    Check out newjvgiveaways.com for starters. Its a great place to start list building.

    Don't be afraid to ask if you're confused, always here to help

      I'd say list building is one of the most stable with highest ROI income. Also that with a list you rely on yourlself, not Google with the adsense and SEO stuffs.

      Maybe you could write up a little report about how you flip sites for quick money, then use it to build a list!

      Keep up with the good work )

    If you go with the mindset that you are going to try it out then you are probably going to fail at this. You need to be CURTAIN that you will do what ever it takes for how long it takes to make things work.

    It works the other way around. You need to believe that you can make that much in what ever time period and work it like it is impossible to fail.

    One more question:
    I have a website with high competition with 110K/month [exact searches].
    If I buy high PR links for it, is there any chance of getting ranked on page one and get some PR?
    I have 14 unique articles on my site and rising. Also, my domain includes my main keyword.

    • You made 5 calls and gave up because no one answered the phone?

      Man, you are either approaching the wrong type of business or ringing when they are closed.

      5 calls is a far too small amount of calls to give up though. The big seo companies in the UK dedicate small call centers just to pick up clients.

      I recommend ranking a site in your local area. Choose something that is gonna be really easy to rank for - only a handful of links and some decent content needed.

      Use that site as your persuader to all the other companies in the area in the same niche - Even sell the site, I recently paid $60 for a website template, added some content, threw a handful of links at it and then sold it for $1000 because it was #1.

      I then went to the 3 other companies in the same area and said "hey, I got your competitor to #1 and you arent even listed. They are getting 10 new sales a week and you arent. Let me get your site to the first page too".

      Using this method you will make 5k a month easily.

    samarita, I will get back to you
    magicsubmittertutorials, I meant that I made 5 calls and no one wanted to order what I offered. In country where I live such sites are nothing. Everyone in my country just uses Facebook and YouTube, so I can't make here money with websites except offering my creating services.
    I will do what advice.
    Thank you.

    ha comedy...yeah if you want to find clients...then maybe change your avatar...lol jk.

    ...yeah offline businesses need websites and that is a way to go...you have to spend a lot of time prospecting....and closing...which is a whole other thing.

    Ask yourself...how much do I want to make a month? ...and why?

    Adsense is pennies...and takes alot of time....and you're leaving your future business in the hands of google....not so smart.

    Take a look at being an affiliate...clickbank....maybe cpa offers....but really learning how to drive targeted traffic and get leads to convert.

    Way more fun than selling a site to biz owner for $395 or whatever....
