I'll try to keep things as short as posible because my goal here is NOT to brag but to offer everyone reading this the necessary confidence to just DO IT.
Before I start I also want to specify that I currently own 126 sites and have a list of a little over 105.000 subscribers, so I kind of know what I'm talking about .
A few months ago my brother in law paid us a visit. It was sunday morning and we were supposed to go shoot some hoops.
Anyway, I told him I needed to verify a few accounts and ten minutes later he joined me after hearing my wife telling him that I just made another $1.200 while sleeping.
Needless to say he was like WT@, $1.200 in less than 20 hours?
I explained to him that I was achieving results like this just from my affiliate promotions. He knew I'm also a product owner and so he always thought that this is the way I was earnings so much money on monthly basis.
What followed was nothing short of amazing for him.
He went from earning a big nothing online to $6.000 per month in just 40 days, of course under my close guidance.
So this is what I told him to do and to my surprise he actually listened to me (and is now earning around $6.000/month).
I explained to him that in order to produce money you have to sell something. And in order to sell you need to know what people WANT.
Always keep this in mind: most of us buy things because we want them, not because we need them.
This is the first category of buyers I advised him to sell to.
The second one is composed of people that have a very specific problem and NEED a fast solution (i.e. they have an infected computer and NEED an antivirus program to clean it up because otherwise they can't simply use the pc).
So I showed him how to first do market research.
Then I told him we need to find out what keywords people use to find the products he choosed to promote.
Out of all the keywords he came up with (using free keyword tools by the way) I told him that he must choose the ones that have at least 50 real searches per day and at most 10.000 competing pages (not websites) optimized for the same keywords as ours.
And also that he must check what type of sites appear on the first 3 spots of Google's first page for our targeted keywords.
I told him this for 2 reasons:
- the first 3 spots receive most of the traffic;
- if the first 3 spots (where we want to be) are well established sites, with thoundands of links, than it will be very hard to beat them so it's best to just find another keyword.
He did exactly what I explained to him and he came up with a list of 30-40 very well researched keywords in different niches, each having at least 50 searches per day and no more than 10.000 competing pages.
After that I gave him a list of 15 web 2.0 properties (wordpress, blogger, livejournal etc) and told him to make a link wheel out of them all poiting to the money site.
He posted unique articles on each property of the wheel (the articles were optimized for that specific keyword he was targeting), pinged them, bookmarked them, submitted their rss feeds to rss directories...the works.
Within the first week he was owning multiple rankings on the first page of Google for dozens of keywords, each keyword promoting a certain product from Clickbank and earning him around $6.000 per month in total within 40 days.
I hope everybody understands that this is not rocket science, if you want to make money online you have to go out there and just DO IT.
Stop procrastinating, stop reading method after method and just pick one. If it works for you then scale it up and move on to the next one.
I've posted this because I truly believe that anyone can make money online if they move their a@@ and get to work.
So...will you be the next one to share your success story with the rest of the warriors?
