Sharing Your Knowledge

Caribbean Beach I’ve been asked in many forums what the best source of income that I’ve had to date with Internet marketing.

And I know that your second question is, what does a picture of the beach got to do with the first question? Read on.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the very best method of generating revenue on the Internet is by selling your own information products.

This can be on any topic you choose too. I’d actually recommend that you vary your product offerings.

But if you want to make the game of online marketing your only game and have it provide all of your needed income, then you need to be ready to create several products.

I would recommend between 10-20 products. Now, you may have fainted but you’ll be surprised how easy it can be to do just that. With the right software and a little bit of time, you can create a fantastic product that will continue to sell well in the long term.

I would also say that giving yourself exactly one calendar month to get your first product done is a good deadline. It’s just enough time to cut your teeth on the first one, but not too long to drag it out into infinity.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, I Have A Product!

Next, you’ll want to advertise your new product offerings. There’s a couple of different things you can do at this stage.

First one I’m going to mention is probably the very best. Setup a WordPress blog and start to chat about this particular niche.

You’ll start this on day one, even before you start to create your product. Start to gather a following who are interested in the same things as you.

It will take time to get ranked and on the front pages of Google, so, start the process. Nothing is better then free traffic!

Next, search out the forums your particular niche is interested in. Sign up in the forum and start answering and asking questions.

Let the members get to know you. When you are ready to sell your new product, then add it to your signature line in those forums. Don’t advertise any other way!!!

Did I say that loud enough? Don’t try to start selling to forum members. One the minor side, it could alienate you from other users and on the major side, you could find yourself banded from the forum!

Patience Grasshopper – You Will Get Your Just Rewards

Finally, be patient. It will take time for the product to catch on. It will take time for others to trust you.

The nice thing is as you start to become a trusted member in your chosen forums and as your site starts to rank, you’ll find yourself making a constant stream of sales.

Now, you may only sell one per day or ten per day. But you will make sales.

As you add to your arsenal of online products, you’ll soon find more and more money entering your bank account.

Before you know it, you and I will be sharing a nice cool drink on the shores of some warm Caribbean beach!

Do you want to know more? Coming out on Apr 1st, 2010 will be a new course called ‘Online Riches – Turn Your Experience and Knowledge into Easy Online Cash’. And that’s no April’s fools!

Strategic Internet Marketing

Strategic internet marketing is the only way to make money on the Internet. But what is strategic Internet marketing you ask? Believe or not, it’s not much different from off-line marketing. Here are the steps to making way to much money online:

  1. Know your customer – You need to know your customers wants. This can be quite daunting but if you work hard at your keyword research, it won’t take long to see your customer wants peering back at you from the keywords you find. Here’s a hint – if it involves removing pain or frustration, you are onto something. Also, it’s important for you to know that customers buy out of want and justify the purchase with need! Pretty backwards, aye?
  2. Find the products or services to match the customer wants – This isn’t critical, believe it or not, but important. Many companies sell sub-standard products to customers and they continue to buy. These companies know the third step in this process.
  3. Show your customers how your products will fullfill their wants – This is your salescopy. You can do the first two step 100% and fumble this one and you’ve lost the game. It is crucial to get your salescopy right. Don’t worry, like many skills, you can learn this one too!
  4. Get your salescopy in front of your customer – Out of importance, this is the most important of all these points. Again, you can do steps 1 to 3 perfectly, but if no-one sees it, well, your work was done in vain. The worst salescopy, product and research can still yield a sales rate of 0.5% to 1% conversion.

I’m not going to lie to you, but strategic Internet marketing is going to take you some time to learn and be successful at. Like all worthwhile skills they will pay you richly in the end.

I’ve been working away at learning strategic Internet marketing now for about two years, full time and only in the past few months have things really started to take off. You will need to learn to stick to a plan and don’t try to bite off more than you can chew.

I see others asking me how to do quite complex marketing processes and they still haven’t learnt the basics necessary to succeed. This is truly a recipe for disaster. You will become disillusioned in no time and a potentially profitable future on the Internet for you will be over.

I don’t want to see that happen to you. Your first strategic Internet marketing step, if you are new at Internet marketing, is to learn the basics. How do you actually get a site on the Internet. Here’s where WordPress is a star.

WordPress may be a bit complex when you first start to learn it, but it is a very worthwhile venture to persue. My recommendation is to learn how to install and use WordPress first! If you are plugging away at this in your spare time, this one step could take you a month or so.

Don’t worry! With is time very well spent. In the end, you can use WordPress to install a site in under 5 minutes! In the near future, I’ll be releasing a video series on the latest version of wordpress, demonstrating the first steps to setup hosting and install WordPress. I’ll keep you posted when it’s done.

Strategic Internet marketing is the name of the game here. Learn the baby steps before you try to take the giant steps. Always remember that the sites that you build will make money for you forever after you’ve done all the heavy lifting!

Micro Niche Adsense Course Review

Micro Niche Adsense Course

Back in July I had picked up an ebook that talked about making money with Adsense. I’m already doing not too bad with Adsense, using many different techniques from past lessons.

But this new ebook that I picked up has kind of ‘messed me up’ so to speak. It an ebook that doesn’t look much different on its sales page than the other 1,000 ebooks available, but when you read this ebook, it is different.

Click here to grab your copy of Xfactor’s New EBook!

The Adsense eBook that I’m talking about is called, ‘Xfactor’s Micro Niche Adsense Course’. It’s truly a unique course for a number of reasons. I believe the number one reason is because it’s from an Internet marketer who’s banged his head against the wall, (like we all do), and finally found a way to be very profitable with Adsense.

Now, Xfactor, whose first name is John, is the real meal deal. John has figured out many of the components through trial and error and was able to put together a fantastic course for the newbie and experienced marketer.

Let me tell you some of the things that make this course a gem:

  • John shows you a very effective white hat method of marketing yourself, creating many Google loving back links to your sites to boost your rankings to the front page. (Is so easy, I wish I thought of it a long time ago!)
  • His style of niche finding that is quite different than other things that I’ve read. To be honest, I didn’t get it in the beginning and I had to play with it for several weeks. Literally in the past couple of days, the light turned on. He has a method to find very profitable niche markets, even in highly competitive areas.
  • He shows a complete start to finish technique to build profitable Adsense sites. This includes everything you need, including a reasonable time table for building sites.
  • His methods actually work! Sounds stupid, but next to the Cash Cow To Adsense Wealth Course, this is one of the only other courses I’d recommend for learning Adsense. I’ve seen my Adsense account earnings literally triple in the past 6 weeks. This is no exaggeration!
  • John has had hundreds of satisfied customers and he still personally answers questions! This is one of about four marketers; out of hundreds I’ve known who personally handles support requests!

I’ll warn you that this is a $77 course on Adsense, but truly worth every penny. In the few short weeks I’ve begun to implement John’s technique, I’ve gotten my money back on it on increased Adsense earnings easily.

Now, I’ll also tell you that John doesn’t use WordPress within his course to build his sites, but I do! My results are astounding and well on par with John’s results!

Even if you are not an Adsense marketer, this eBook is loaded with Internet Marketing gems that I’ve also used to boost some of my other marketing efforts. Truly, in my opinion, if you are serious about making money online, you owe it to yourself to pick up your copy today!

As a bonus, if you do purchase John’s eBook through my affiliate link, I’ll personally be available to you as well, to answer all of your questions!

Dropshipping and WordPress

I’ve been really thinking very hard on what I think that the ideal WordPress business opportunity is. Well, after a ton of research, I think that I’ve found it.

Dropshipping. Imagine this. You are searching for table lamps. You do a Google search on ‘table lamps’. In the top listings, you find a website that has extensive information about table lamps and to boot, they actually have quite the selection of table lamps available for sale!

Now, you can stroll on down to your friendly neighborhood lamp shop but why bother? Now, in many affiliate marketing situations, if a potential buyer clicks on the lamp advert on your site, they will be automatically redirected to a lamp supplier.

Now, maybe its just me, but don’t you find that a bit defeating? Think about it. You’ve already built a very small bridge of trust on your website and you’ve even got your potential buyer to take an action – click on a lamp that is being sold and maybe they’ve even put it into a shopping cart.

But instead, they are pushed to another site. Trust level may now be a possible zero. You may have just lost that potential sale! And not only that, you may have passed a possible email list member to your supplier.

Well, in my books, that’s too much to give away. If I’m going to create a site, I want it to be inclusive.

Here’s where I’m looking for your help. Imagine using WordPress to build a site that has products, that you don’t stock by the way, that you can sell and the dropshipper who is your supplier handles all the handling work.

To me, that’s an ideal method of making money with WordPress!

I’ve been searching for the right solution set to solve this dropshipping blueprint, but now I’m asking for your advice. Tell me what you know and if you are already doing this!

I’m going to be putting together a sample site to illustrate the point and will definitely update this post when I get to a working prototype. But in the meantime, I’d love to hear your comments!

Super Affiliate Handbook Review

Rosalind Gardner Super Affiliate Handbook Review One testimony of a great product is the test of time. Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook is no exception to this. It was first published in electronic format by Rosalind in June 2003 and has stood the test of time.

Rosalind has continued to update her Super Affiliate Handbook and it is completely up to date for 2009.

I’m always a bit skeptical before purchasing an ebook, especially in Internet marketing, since there is so much terrible stuff. And even before I purchased Rosalind’s book, I searched hard for honest reviews on this book.

I did find a few and after some thought, decided to purchase Super Affiliate Handbook for myself. I will tell you that I’ve not be disappointed. It’s best to describe it as ‘meaty’. If you like to read and get the whole picture, Rosalind does certainly deliver.

Click here to get your copy of Rosalind’s Super Affiliate Handbook.

As of the edition I purchased, the eBook was up to 212 pages! And this isn’t big text and tons of big pictures. It’s 212 pages of well thought out and useful information for the new and experienced affiliate marketer.

To be honest, I’ve owned this book now for about six months and I’ve only instituted only a small subsection of Rosalind’s material and seen a difference. I fully intend to implement a majority of her information that she provides and expect to be sunning myself in the near future, making what she makes!

Here’s some screen captures of the table of contents:

Super Affiliate Handbook Table of Contents 1 Super Affiliate Handbook Table of Contents 2

You can click on either image to see a larger picture.

Rosalind covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to Affiliate Marketing
  • How to Find a Profitable Niche
  • Plan and Build Your Website – one of my favorite sections. Rosalind has an eye for style!
  • Content Really Is King
  • Monetize Your Site
  • 31 Ways to Market Your Site
  • Manage Your Business
  • Grow Your Business
  • Problem-Solving and Avoidance
  • Plus, plus, plus!

When I purchased this eBook I was truly an affiliate newbie. I can say that I comfortably was instituted into the realm of affiliate marketing with this book. As a more experienced affiliate marketer now, I still find this book to be invaluable.

You’ll find that this book will be a multi-read book. You’ll read it once and get some great stuff to put into production. Then you’ll read it again and get more out of it and put more into production. At least that’s what I’ve found.

For example, the first time I read it, I got introduced to the world of affiliate marketing and immediately with information in this book, was accepted by some of the larger affiliate networks that are normally quite hard to get accepted by.

Next, using some of Rosalind’s advice, I’ve been able to create affiliate links that have been profitable. Plus she really has a great eye for creating good looking sites, and I cheated a bit and copied some of her design ideas.

I think the best review I can give is when I created my first site based upon Super Affiliate Handbook, my wife, told me ‘Your sites are finally starting to look quite professional’. High praise indeed.

In my opinion, you won’t be disappointed by Super Affiliate Handbook. It has a lot to offer you as an affiliate marketer and a master plan to get you there.

Cash Cow Guide To Adsense Wealth Review

It’s not often that you get a truly useful guide that doesn’t need bonus’ to make it worth what you’ve paid.


Stephen Crooks, Cash Cow Guide To Adsense Wealth is one such guide. It’s a no fluff guide that will help out newbie’s and experienced marketers alike with the task to making money with Google Adsense and WordPress.

Cash Cow Guide To Adsense Wealth Review

Stephen breaks down the process of going from zero to hero in the Adsense game. To give you some idea, Google Adsense is the Google program of displaying ads that are created in Google AdWords. If someone clicks on a Google ad on your website, you’ll make a commission for the effort.

It’s really a very simple program that doesn’t require you to jump through hops or convince a possible customer to purchase a product. And, by the way, is dead simple to do with the right guidance.

Here’s where Stephen’s guide comes in. He takes you by the hand and shows you:

  • What you need to know from square one.
  • What freely available resources you’ll need to get the job done (wordpress is part of the picture!)
  • How to properly setup your pages in wordpress for maximum ad profits.
  • What niches to target for maximum gain. Adsense is not a level playing field. Some ads will pay pennies when clicked and others will pay dollars! I’d rather earn dollars per click then pennies!
  • Plus he adds in, by the way of bonus’ other elements you’ll need like the right wordpress template that you’ll need.

Stephen’s whole idea is to present you with all the tools and information you need and you just got to supply some time, sweat and imagination!

Here’s a screen capture of the Cash Cow Guide To Adsense Wealth table of contents:

You’ll see that Stephen covers all the bases. Nothing is left to chance! He even put himself on the line and created a site with the premise to have it make $100 per day after 90 days!

Well, he did fall a bit short of the mark, at only about $20-$25 per day, but considering how little time was required to create this money making wordpress blog and it will continue to make money ongoing, I’m still sold.

I’ve used Stephen’s Cash Cow Guide To Adsense Wealth guide to help out many of my adsense sites really start to pull in money from Google Adsense. His information is sound and easy to follow.

Monetize Your Blog

This is a question on the tips of many a blogger, “How can I monetize my blog”? And I’ve done some pretty extensive research in this area and I’ve discovered an interesting fact. The number one tactic to make money with a wordpress blog is the same for every other business on the planet.

Traffic. You can say, well of course! But did you know many individuals spend more time trying to find the ‘right affiliate program’ or ‘highest paying products’ then trying to generate traffic. If you a liken it to a brick and mortar business, it would be like trying to make a better product.

This is all and good, but I’ll tell you, it’s better to have 100’s of interested traffic looking at your average product then to develop the perfect product and have nobody looking at it. If you concentrate your efforts to generate traffic to your blog, monetize blog will come as fruit for your labor!

How do you get more traffic. Again, referencing an off line business, you have to tell people about you and your interests. This could be done by the following ways:

  • Tell everyone you know about your business
  • Find ways to advertise yourself through other media, such as billboards, radio or newspaper.
  • Get in front of other groups of people who you don’t know and tell everyone about your business.

Well, let’s see how this relates to our ability to monetize our blog.

  • Tell everyone you know about your blog. Tell everyone on your facebook account about your exploits and what you are writing about.
  • Buy links, banner ads or the like through other online partners.
  • If your website or blog hosts a local audience, then consider offline marketing efforts.
  • Get in front of other groups of people who you don’t know and tell everyone about your business.

Monetize Blog – Other People

Did you notice I made exactly the same point at the end in both cases? Get in front of other people! This will generate the very most rewards for your marketing efforts. True, some of the other ideas are this one in disguise, but you will only be able to locally touch about 100-200 people who you know.

And you may be very lucky and see one sale for your efforts. But if you can get in front of 1,000,000 others, who you don’t know. Even at a 1% conversion to customers, you are still looking at 10,000 customers! Can you see what I’m getting at?

So if you want to make money with your blog, you need traffic. Social networks really are the ideal place to tell others. Don’t spam them. But do tell them. Tell the directory listings services. Ping your site after every post. Tweet them. (You may have come to this article because of a tweet!)

Just keep telling others and provide great information and your customers will naturally flow from your marketing efforts. Remember, just don’t be a pushy sales person. Be an informed expert in your field. Big difference!

Monetize blog is an article to help you make money with wordpress. Tell me your thoughts below!

Making Money With WordPress

Are you tired of coming up empty handed when trying to make money online? Does it seems like another illusive dream that you just cannot seem to accomplish. Aren’t you tired of only making a couple of dollars a month on adsense?

I was too. I decided it was time to make a difference. It’s time to really kick some internet marketing butt. Ah, but hold on. I want to explain a couple of things that I’ve discovered.

First. Whatever you do, you have to add content that is interesting and relevant. Plus you have to be able to talk as an expert in the niche topic you’ve chosen to profit from. Now, I’m not going to ask you to go to forums and answer questions. That is a tired idea and may or may not work.

Your content that you post on your site will be the gold nuggets that brings people not to other’s forums, but your wordpress blog.

Second, Once you’ve gained trust as an expert in a field or niche, you will be able to profit from it using affiliate networks. The method I am proposing to build will be totally different from anything currently seen in the industry to date. This method will work and work well. If you’ve built trust, you’ll have closed sales already.

Are you with me so far. Good. What’s the idea that will shatter time and space as we know it? Sorry, I cannot tell you yet. But what I can tell you is I’m working very hard on it to make it work in a completely automated fashion. But what I’m looking for is others who are interested in going to the next level too.

Right now, I’m just canvassing others to see if you are interested. But there will come a time when I will disclose more of my idea to a select group who may or may not become the venture partners in this idea.

So, I’m not trying to be illusive, but I’m guarding my idea very closely right now. I believe it to be something that could be extremely profitable and run on auto-pilot – once you’ve created a niche site that has gained some following and you’ve proven yourself to be an expert.

If you are interested in learning more at this time, please leave me a comment below. I will be pulling the comments before they become visible, as I’m just seeking your contact information and your comments on going forward.

Thanks!

Frank
