Note: This method has not proven to be working like it used to. This post is more for a historic reference than current ways to make money. There are some who still use this method and do make money.
Now I am sure I perked up your attention with the title. I am also sure that a lot of you are making little to no money so far doing the Internet marketing thing. I know how you feel as I have been there myself. You have responded to the ads that promise money with no work or recruiting; just to find out you have to do both.
There are no ‘secret’ methods, big red easy buttons, ‘loopholes’ or other such crap to making money on the Internet.
So put away your check books and credit cards, I will share with you the exact method to make $10,000.00 a month – the same method that the people who are actually making this kind of money do it. Now I know you are asking am I making this kind of money?
No, not yet and you will understand as I explain the process.
Now the first thing you need to do is pick a niche (this is like weight loss, dog training, weight lifting, fishing, golf, etc.) that interests you. Now you need to find a product; Clickbank is a good choice and what I will concentrate on. You can apply this to any affiliate product actually. The easiest way is to find out what is a hot seller at the moment.
Now you can also do this backwards and find a keyword (Yes, this has to do with SEO – you can’t get away without knowing this) first and then a product. What you need to do now is find a keyword with high searches, but low competition.
How do you do this?
You need a keyword tool or some sort. There are several out there both free and paid. Wordtracker is a good one to start with as it is free. You will have to do a little more work, but unless you have some money to start – use free as much as possible until you understand the process. Now the part you want to go to is the ‘gtrends‘ section of Wordtracker that will meet the above criteria of high searches and low competition. Now you may try several words and short phrases before you find the right one.
Now that you have found your keyword (or phrase), you need to get a domain name that has this word or phrase in it. Go to GoDaddy, NameCheap or just do a search on Google for the domain name www.yourkeyword.com. If it is available you need to buy it.
Yes, Virginia, you will have to spend money to do this.
You will also need a hosting account with cpanel, and fantastico – I use CBHosting. Now you need a .com or .net domain. Now .org may work depending on the product. Now if you cannot find or get this domain name – start over and repeat until you have one that you can get a domain name for.
Now you need to go into your hosting account cPanel and get your nameservers and set them up where you purchased the domain name. If you are lost with this, talk to the help desk and they can either do this for you or walk you through it.
No sweat so far.
Now go into your hosting account and find Fantastico Deluxe and click on it then WordPress and fill out the rest of the information. When you are done, you will now have a brand new WordPress blog. Now you need to put a few posts in the blog giving useful information on the topic of the product you have chosen. Now in each post you need to work in your keyword or phrase. You also need to place the link to your product in each page somewhere. You can also have a banner along the side. You will have to see where you get the best response.
Now you can probably score high in Google with just this, but to make sure you need to get some backlinks and traffic. You get backlinks by posting on similar blogs using the website address in the post (where you are allowed to put it) and give an insightful post.
Garbage posts just for backlinks are SPAM and will usually be deleted.
Find a few blogs to do this on and you will have a good start on backlinks. You will also need to write a few articles using this website as your signature site address. Now some marketers have a ‘nom de plume‘ (sometime several) that they use on the article sites so as to not tip their hand at the niche they have found. Use ezinearticles or GoArticles or both. Each article needs to be unique and have around 5% keyword saturation. You can tell if you have the keywords right if you search for your keyword or phrase in Google with ” ” around it and you are at number one place.
This is basic as I will run out of room to get into too much detail, but this is the process.
Now how do you make $10,000.00 a month this way?
For the sake of argument you got his site to make $100.00 per month. This is not hard to do depending on what you make per sale. Now you repeat the process 100 time. You do the same thing for 100 sites and you will magically be making $10,000.00 per month. This is not glamorous but it is the process.
Some people do this and just use AdSense ads with high payouts. Now as you can tell this is not something that will get done ‘overnight’ or in a week or even in a month. The ‘Big Gun’ Internet marketers have a staff that do these things. The more money you want to make; the more sites you create.
You can speed the process up by using PPC, but you need money to cover the PPC charges until you get the money from the sales. If you spend $2,000.00 in PPC in a month to make $10,000.00, that is a good deal – if you have the $2,000.00.
You can save some money on those ebook you were going to buy and use this money to actually start this and make some money.
Anyone can do this, but most will not as it is too much work. Once you get these sites done, you will make money off of them for years to come with not much you need to do with them. How long will it take to make these 100 sites? That entirely depends on you.
How bad do you want it?
If you REALLY want this you will find the time and the money to do this. Just like anything else some will and some won’t – which are you?
