Stoopid Simple Way To Make Money, Guaranteed. Hard Work Required!

24 replies
Hey Ladies & Gents,

I'm going to lay this out there.

If you have no money to invest in IM you will need to work hard.

You can do this for free. But the price will be time.

Here is 1 method you can use to make money online.

It may have been repeated a few times, and that's OK. It bears repeating, because it's Simple and Free.

Step 1.

Set up an e-mail sequence at an ESP (e-mail service provider) on a topic you like talking about. Something that interests you.

Make sure it's something you can sell information products about (check clickbank/google).

Your interest should come into close contact with a lot of the products available, so it shouldn't be to hard to find something to promote to customers also interested in the same thing.

Exercise:

Got to one of the following ESP's. Set up a free trial & write an e-mail sequence of 3-5 e-mails full of information regarding your topic of choice (ex: golfing). This should be AMAZING INFORMATION. Not rehashed stuff you find elsewhere.

Then write 1 e-mail (should be 4-5 days after) that promotes a product relating to your topic (golf). Make sure the e-mail also contains helpful information.

ESPs:
Aweber
GetResponse
Mailchimp
Go and google "Email Service Provider"
Etc...

Step 2.

Set up a landing page using something like:

Unbounce.com
Leadpages.net

Make sure to link it to your ESP using their tutorials.

GOLDEN TIP:

Make sure to split test your landing pages. Test variations of landing page styles, headlines, colors, etc.

Make sure to test the overall ANGLE of the landing page to.

For ex:

Increase Your Golf Swing By 32 Yards
vs.
How To Sink a Hole In One Using 3 Simple Steps


Step 3.

Go to forums in your topic. Create accounts & post useful information (kind of like this).

In your signature have a link with a really enticing CTA (Call To Action) that sends them to your Landing Page.

Make sure to write down at least 30 variations of your Signature before deciding on one.

It should convince EVEN YOU to click on it.

Then, create as many valuable posts as you can, on as many forums as you can - DO NOT SPAM FORUMS. Simply provide valuable information. Even if it's only 1 thread with ALL of your information... it will get attention.

GOLDEN TIP:
Write down 30+ Different headline ideas before choosing one.



That's all there is to it.

Go, choose a topic, create an e-mail sequence, get traffic using forums by providing useful information. not spamming.

If you hit a snag, write a post with your problem and ask for feedback.



Just my 2c.

EDITED: P.S. This is just 1 way of getting traffic, and 1 way of monetizing.

There are many tweaks to this you can do, and once you've got an income flow going you can transition to bigger traffic methods. DO NOT FOCUS ON THIS.

This is a problem that will present itself and will easily be solved once you have an income flow. For now, worry about these 3 steps ONLY.

    Here's another, easier method . . .

    1. Perfect a service, or design/create a product that people will want to buy.

    2. Create a website and advertise it.

    3. Make money.

      That also works

      I find the best one is the combination of both, and continually creating
      products to promote to your own source of buyers.

      Step 2 is not needed. You can use the "landing page"
      that you get from your autoresponder company.

      This is not theory... I am using it.
      That could work to.

      The reason I recommended unbounce/leadpages is because they are the ones I've found easiest to split test with.

      Though I haven't used any ESP landing page creator, so perhaps I'm biased.

    how do you persuade the visitor to insert their e-mail?

    I have said this before, but I will say it again:

    Forum participation in the niche I am in, is the single most effective way I have known to

    A) Be seen as an authority/expert within your niche.
    B) Sell your products or services.

    Of course, you need to ensure the forum you are on is active and allows signature links. You also need to spend time on the forum helping people for free, and not just trying to spam your links.

    Nice post.

    Agree to everything, except the subject line.

    There is nothing that is "Stoopid" or "Simple" about this.
    Yes, this is a 3 step process. But it takes a lot of experimentation to get it right.

    And, then there is that little detail of getting a target audience that is interested.

      I think you have misunderstood the OP's use of those words. He is referring to the KISS principle. (Keep it Simple Stupid) or (Keep it Stupid Simple). It basically means to do things in the least complicated way possible.

        Hmm.. yes, thought that one too.
        But still I don't get how it can be called "simple" . Been there, failed that. Anyway, what is really hard for me can be a piece of cake for others.

          Hey Prashan,

          "Simple" doesn't mean "Easy".

          It's simple to set up a landing page using unbounce, it's simple to set up a 5 e-mail sequence, it's simple to write a post on a forum.

          It is NOT EASY to:
          Come up with an epic headline that will convert 60% of your clicks into e-mail subscribers

          Or to come up with amazing content on your topic in a 5 e-mail sequence or in multiple posts on a few forums.



          This is why I suggested a topic that really interested you, something you LIKE REASEARCHING, so you can gain knowledge the public does not know. Once you have that it's considered "amazing knowledge" to most.

    This is pretty much exactly what I'm doing. But I'm worried I picked a niche that doesn't really have many products to promote. Should I go with something that is proven to work like weightlifting or a dating niche? There will be plenty more competition but at the same time there is more customers so I can just take a piece of the pie right?

      Hey Brando,

      What niche is it? If you don't want to share it publicly just pm me.

      The answer is: Most likely yes.

      There are literally 10,000s of products you can promote, so the odds are you will find something to promote

    There are other ways of setting up a sales funnel than doing it all yourself.

    I know a very simple way to generate a funnel for free, with extremely high quality content. When I did it, it took me about two hours. You need a domain with WP installed and Aweber.

    Just make you're using your talents appropriately. How many people on here are struggling to build niche sites. Yet if you're better at drawing, speaking or programming then just go over to somewhere like Flippa and offer your services for hire.

    I've bought some wonderful artwork from a guy on Flippa recently. I get some cool stuff to put on my site, he makes money online without having to mess around with WordPress or SEO!

    And while $5 is not a lot of cash... if you've not been to Flippa recently then the site's had a lot of changes, one of which is that it's easy to charge much more than $5 by adding on optional extras to your gig.

    This is a great post and I personally recommend forum marketing to newbies myself as leads will be laser targeted however one can also use blog commenting provided one writes valuable content and YouTube marketing as you can build a following and authority by time if you encourage people to subscribe to your channel.
