The Real Secret To Making Easy Money Online

28 replies
It's obvious from reading many of the recent threads
by my fellow Warriors that many of you havent' cracked
the code.

Yet, you were probably exposed to the answer within a
month of starting to study building an online business.

Many of your simply dismissed the answer because it seemed
too simplistic... or obvious.

Your Mistake.

I'm doing well because I don't ignore the obvious

So what is the obvious answer?

You find a group of people with a very painful problem
that they are willing to pay to solve and you step in
front of them and prove to them that you have the solution.

Ideally, you step in front of them where the pain is most
accute for them, and they feel like they MUST have that
solution NOW.

You are looking to step in front of them when they are in
that stage of the buying cycle where they've largely passed
the research stage, and now just want to resolve things.

These painful problems that YOU can help to solve and
make easy money online from include:

- Helping People Clean Up Computer Viruses
- Helping Someone Find A Weightloss Method That Actually Works
- Helping Someone Who Desires To Look Younger
- Help Someone Who Needs To Lower Their Cholesterol Or Blood Pressure
- Helping Someone Who Need Desperately To House-train A Puppy. If
you've ever been there, you know the pain
- Helpings Someone Who Needs To Better Prepare For A College Entrance Exam

You get the picture. You want to find people who have problem
and you want to "Help Them" to solve them.

Now, consider this...

Whenever I have a problem that I want to resolve, I often
go online, and for many problems, I go to YouTube looking for a
video demo SHOWING me HOW to solve that problem.

That tells me that one of the absolutely easiest ways to make
easy money online is to create relatively short videos showing
how to solve a specific problem.

I do this, and it's VERY profitable for me.

How do I know what kind of problems people find so painful
that they go online looking for a video of how to solve them?

Well, when I find myself challenged and turning to YouTube
in search of an answer, that ALWAYS suggests to me that others
may face similar problems, will search for the answer online,
and will often search on YouTube.

Why YouTube?

Well, when they do a search on Google or other search engines,
the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPS) often show videos).
When people look at these SERPS, the image of a video often
catches their attention first... even if it's not in top 3.

Think about it... would you rather read through a dense webage
explaining how to solve a problem, or would you rather watch
a video where you are showed EXACTLY how to do it...so that
there is no doubt that you are doing it correctly?

Most of us would probably prefer watching the video.

My point in all of the above is that the real secret to making
easy money online can be as simple as making a short video
where you not only make an assertion, but show/prove that you
have a solid workable solution.

Then... you point them to a product that you recommend that
makes implementing that solution managable or easier.

It's a simple formula, not really new - I've been doing
Camtasia videos for about 10 year! They work like crazy!

If anything has changed in recent years, it's that Google
now shows a LOT more love to YouTube because they now OWN
YouTube :-)

So why haven't you jumped on the Video marketing craze!
YouTube is after all, ONE GIANT SEARCHENGINE!

  • Yes, Youtube is really amazing. I believe it's actually the second largest search engine on the planet. Something that's also great about YouTube is that you don't even have to rank at all and you'll still get traffic automatically with zero promotion-you can't beat that! Also, there's the social aspect: people can embed your video. You can't do that with a webpage.

    I think that's the trick too; you need to show them the info, and then sell them the product that makes doing it easier somehow. That's so much better than marketing a product where you're simply selling even more information about the solution, and I think a lot of people make that mistake-they give some info and then sell a more in-depth solution. A large portion of the people however will just be satisfied with your free information and then leave without ever even considering the product you're promoting.

    You make some great points Mr. Crawford. YouTube videos get good click thru rates in the SERPS and Google knows that.

    There are various benefits to using video. One of the greatest benefits is there are things you can do with video that you can't do well through the written word. Like doing tutorials and demonstrations. I plan on doing a lot more video in the future.

      Yes, most of the time when I've sold a new piece of software, I've used
      video demonstrations. You can tell people all day long how easy or intuitive
      a piece of software is, and they're probably thinking in the back of their
      mind (assuming that they believe you) that it's easy for you either because
      you are more technical than they are, or you know the software just
      because you've spent a lot of time playing with it. A video demo
      will overcome those objections.

      I also use it for promoting things as mundane as a free list-building giveaway,
      where potential subscribers wonder if checking it out is worth their time.

      I go inside the site and do a virtual tour, SHOWING them the free gifts that
      they can get once they are inside. That's one of the ways that, when
      I take part in free list-building that aren't my own, I'm consistently in the
      top three referrers... often even the top referrer :-)

    The great thing about YouTube videos is the short learning curve. You don't need to know a whole lot to upload a video to YouTube. It's as simple as it gets and the income potential is unbelievable when you think about how easy it is to just upload a helpful video and recommend a product to the viewers.

      You find a group of people with a very painful problem
      that they are willing to pay to solve and you step in
      front of them and prove to them that you have the solution.
      It's painfully that easy!

      What's even more painful is it works for adwords, adsense, cpa, affiliate marketing, membership sites, online marketing, offline marketing, list building, uh... need I keep going?

      From there I think some might think the pain is in learning how to be technical enough on the web to get a site up. Some have some pain over putting together a simple business plan. And some are stuck on the crazy idea that their site has to rank and they are in a constant battle with the search engines.

      If you live in the boonies where NO traffic comes through, and you set up a lemonade stand in your front yard, do you think anyone will come by and buy?

      If you live in the boonies, and you put up a flashing sign on the highway that says, "Best Lemonade on the East Coast!" Do you think someone might be thirsty and drive to tim-buck-two to find your stand? (If I were a lemonade connoisseur, I know I would.)

      Will things go faster if you actually know how to make the lemonade, make the stand, and give proper directions on how to find it? Heck yeah.

      Can you pay someone to build the stand for you, make the lemonade, and even give directions? Of course. But this will cost you something.

      Youtube is one giant ass super highway. But even if you are intimidated by this, the main principle pointed out still works.

    The worst thing about this tip isn't that it is simple and straight into the core.
    That is the beauty of it.

    No, the worst part is that it is so obvious that everyone should understand it all by itself.

    I, in particular, that have 25 years of sales experience and use this almost intuitively in my regular job daily.

    Why is it that when we are coming online as online marketers, we stop to think and start to act as cheeps?

    Sometimes the answer is so close to the surface that it is hard to see it, and instead we are being paralyzed by information overload.

    Thank you for reminding us (me) of the core principle of salesmanship.

    Willie, that's a great post you know. You know google has even made it a lot easier. When you get idea of what to do either of offer (your own or other people's) you only need to launch google hangout and you get your recording on youtube asap. You only need to do necessary seo or editing as you may wish.

    I have camtasia but I've found google hangout a lot more interesting for my recordings nowadays.

      Hi Lateef,

      I use GoToWebinar for recording most things but also do hangouts.

      It depends upon what I'm hosting/recording though.

      I use Camtasia for editing the recordings... although if I needed to do
      some really advanced stuff, I'd probably drop it Sony Vegas.

      I host many of my videos on AmazonS3, but do use YouTube too.
      It depends upon what I want to do with the video, and the degree
      of control that I want over it.

      I have camtasia but I've found google hangout a lot more interesting for my recordings nowadays.

      I have a system that I use to rank my videos VERY high, and keep them
      there, but after thinking about what you've suggested, I need to look
      at how I might be able to use Hangouts more... as a part of my
      overall formula.

      I have looked at Hangouts extensively, and even interviewed several
      people who earn a full-time living from teaching "all things Google
      Hangouts." I have to admit I'm slow to adopt some things. I've had a
      GoToWebinar account for so long that I get the account that costs
      most people $500 per month for only $79. When they increased prices,
      I was grandfathered.

    Easy and very easy.

    Thank you Mr. Crawford. This sort of effective simplicity is what I get from reading your emails.

    I was experimenting with video before I moved, but the slow internet connection where I live now makes it difficult to watch videos or upload those. But I'm willing to rise to the challenge and find a way around that.

    As always Willie, great advice.

    I'd like to add a bit too if I may.

    Google hangouts integrated with 22social app. This way the Youtube video can be simulcast live on Google, Youtube and Facebook all at the same time. The top 3 sites in the world for traffic. Just promote the link to your followings. Then the recording is always there in cyberspace for long term traffic as well.

    Been looking into blog talk radio after I listened to yours too - great stuff by the way!

    Hi Willie,

    Valuable info here. You're right it's not new, but still valuable. Sometimes we need to get hit over the head with a hammer in order to "GET IT".
    I thought I'd never make a video and now I've made several. They are all tutorials with a product recommendation attached to it.
    Thanks so much for reminding us that this stuff works.

    Yes Sir, agree about YouTube in any put. Me myself like to spend time over youtube network just to see what i need to see. And youtube since the 1st time i've encountered had gone into this gigantic place serving millions of internet aspiration. But i donno, for me Youtube still exclusive for me to jump in right away. Donno really how to create good marketing video and mostly because take me more time to create one video to upload to youtube rather than writing one page of articles.

    Still i can make used of youtube communities to promote something by leaving comment and put my affiliate link/website link in it.
