I have learnt alot from this forum since joining some months back and it is time to give back to the forum.
I know many warriors like Paul Meyers, Kim Standerline, Andrew Cavanagh, Proffessor of article marketing - Big Steven Wagenheim, Anon - ExRat ( I am a fan of them anyway and I am only guessing. I don't have access to their bank accounts lol ) and many others are already making as much as 10k per mont ( maybe more or slightly less) but I am very sure there are those who will like to make just $3,500 per month and I will teach them in this post how to make their first $3,500 online.
Here is how to make $3,500
This involves article marketing, bum marketing, making a established blog,product creation, affiliate marketing too and then flipping it off on sitepoint. I'll explain everything in detail.
Before we start I have to say you should be ready to spend as much as $150 for outsource somethings or do the dirty job by yourself. It all depends on you.
Think of a Niche you can get into. There are so many profitable niches out there. look for one that best suits you. Could be acne, weight loss, forex trading, dating, credit scores and many more.
We will use the weight loss niche for the purpose of this post. It is one of my favorite niches anyway. Yes there is competition but I bet you will never find a niche where there is no competition. Besides Weight loss is PROFITABLE!!!
Now we have a niche. It is time to do our keyword research. There are many posts on the warrior forum on how to do keyword research. I want to make this as short as possible therefore I will not try to reinvest the wheel. You know the saying, don't fix it if it aint broken right?
With that in mind, I will suggest you take some time off and read this post http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...ion-101-a.html
Powerful post right? I totally agree with you. I have made alot with that post and I am sure you will too.
Daniel used the dating niche but we are using the weight loss niche so instead of "pick up" "flirting" and the likes you type " easy ways to lose weight" or fastest weight to lose weight or "how can I lose weight fast" and whatever.
The most important thing is to get 10 good keyword phrases that you can write articles on. Get 10 keywords with at least 20 daily searches and competition between 20k-50k in google ( must not exceed 50k).
Now it is time to the articles, write 10-20 ( 10 is good but 15-20 is better) on the keywords following exactly what Daniel thought in his post above. Let this post guide you ( http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...one-place.html ). That is another power post from Daniel.
Ok now we have the niche, the keywords and the articles, but you need where to put them right? OK let's get a domain name.
This is easy but it is not as easy as you think. You may be lucky to get a domain name that has your keyword but PLEASE MAKE SURE the domain name is not longer than 25 characters. Very important.
Now lets assume we are able to get the domain name weightlossmadeeasy.com ( should be either dot com or dot net, no dot info).
OK we have a domain name, articles, keywords and the niche. Now create a wordpress blog with some very beautiful theme, header and design. You will also need to create a squeeze page to build list. ( not going to explain this part cos I believe YOU know it already, if you don't then PM me.)
You also need a big ping list. I don't have a big ping but half is better than nothing. SO Here is mine ping list for you.
Datashed.net - data management Resources and Information. This website is for sale!
OKAY we are set, we have everything we need, squeeze page, blog, articles, keywords and the money making niche. Now it is time to submit the articles, submit 3 articles to your blog and sheducle the rest by 3-4 days interval.
OKAY all articles are submitted to your blog but only 3 are live. Now create an account with ezinearticles, goarticles and buzzle or any other article directory. You don't have to use your present account for any of those. I will tell you why later.
Submit the articles to ezinearticles ( all the articles). Point them to your squeeze page. Remember money is in the list. You need to set up your follow up messages before the articles are live. I guess you should buy Rosie Cottis' Packs of 52 PLR Newsletters to use as follow up message. You can get it here - Weight Loss - 52 PLR Newsletter Pack ( not affiliate link).
Load the messages into your autoresponder but make sure you remove the affiliate link for the first 15 messages ( Choose 2 days interval for your messages). We don't need the affiliate links for now cos we need to build relationship first.
while you wait for the articles to be approved, submit your blog to about 100 rss feed sites ( you can outsource for 20 dollars here on the forum) and bookmark 3 urls. 2 should be the aricles submitted to the blog the 3rd url should be the url of your squeeze page. ( make sure you are keyword(s) you used on the squeeze page has been 20k-50k competition in google. you can outsource this to James for just 10 dollars ( here is the link - http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...8-27-a-10.html )
Open an account with Free Traffic System - Increase Targeted Website Traffic with Free Unlimited One Way Links and learn how to use it to build link to your squeeze page and blog. It is very easy to use and I don't need to explain it again since they have tutorial over there. This system is free and easy to use, will get you lots of links.
OKAY I expect your articles to have been approved by now. If yes, submit the articles to ( rewrite them slightly if you can) goarticles and buzzle ( or whichever). See another link that will help you http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...e-article.html
you can also use Free Traffic System - Increase Targeted Website Traffic with Free Unlimited One Way Links to build link to your articles and blog.
Sign up with 5 weight loss forums and make at least 4 meaningful posts per day on all the 5 forums you have joined with a link to your squeeze in the signature box.
Answer at least 10 questions on weight loss on yahoo answers. You can use some of your articles to answer the questions or get related articles from ezinearticles and use it to answer questions on yahoo answer ( but make sure you put the writer's link in the "source" box and your own link at the end of the article, where they can easy notice your link before the link of the author).
Make comments on at least 10 weight loss blog with a link to your squeeze page. Becareful with the blogs you comment on, it must be big blogs with activities. Create a squidoo lens, and make a page on hubpages and Zimbio with links to your squeeze page. All accounts should be create with one email address and same password as the ezinearticles. Will tell you why
Assuming you get.......
20 visits per day from EZA
40 visits per day from blog comments
30 visits per day from yahoo answers
5 visits per day from your squido lens
5 visits per day from your hubpage
5 visits per day from zimbio
20 visits per day from google ( This is very possible especially if you use James' bookmarking service and I also recommend Angela's link building wso)
TOTAL : 125 per day. Assuming your squeeze page converts at 20% and your comfirmation rate is 70% ( I have done 40% conversion and 90% comfirmation before, so it is possible) you will have around 525 active subscribers
The next step is to ask you list some questions. Like ...
1. Since when have you been trying to lose weight
2. How many pounds do you want to lose?
3. How fast do you want to lose the above? ( above is referring to their answer in 2).
4. What do you think can stop you from losing weight?
7. How much do are you willing to spend in order to achieve your weight loss goal?
The above should be your 16th follow up message.
You don't have to your the above questions if you can get something better.
The question should be at least 7 and the last part should be " how much they are willing to spend to lose weight"
Most of them will reply back to you with answers cos they believe you are sincere and interested in helping them to lose weight ( remember you have not told them to buy any affiliate product, only helping them).
Now you have the answers, it is time to work on them. Do researches online using their answers as a guide to write a 15-25 page ebook and create a sale page to sell the ebook. ( You can price it at $17).
Now lets do the maths.
You have 525 subscribers, assuming 10% ( 52 of them ) bought your $17 report you will have $884. That is still not $3,500 right?
OK go to sitepoint and list the site for sale at x4.5 - x6 of what you have earned. Make sure you mention the ezinearticles account, squidoo lens, huppages, zimbio and your account with free traffic system. Tell the potential buy you are going to give them access to them all and that they are free to change the password(s). You should also mention the 15-25 pages ebook you have created and how the can use it to make money. I can assure you lots of people will be ready to buy the site at a very nice price for that matter. Let your minimum bid be $150, your reserver price should be x3.5 you bin now should be x6 of what you have earned.
Now try it, I bet it will work. It is not going to be easy but you will get their with consistent and hard work. TAKE ACTION!
If you have any kind of questions, dont hesitate, I love to help!
