Easiest Method for Free Traffic

Posted on October 3rd, 2010 in 10x, EzineArticles, Free Business Model, Really Simple Method, Reports, Reselling, Simple, Simple Cash Blog, Strategies, Traffic Drill, Web Traffic | 24 Comments »

One of the most common struggles newer internet marketers experience is developing constant streams of traffic to their websites and offers. Without the flow of ongoing traffic, your website and your offers die out. You MUST be smart about getting multiple streams of long-term web traffic or you won’t survive.

It’s harsh, but it’s true. Getting those eyeballs is our lifeblood.

The good news is that there are literally thousands of different ways to generate traffic for free. I mean “free” in the sense that it doesn’t cost you any money – it will cost you time.

Let’s talk about one of my favorite methods. It’s ridiculously easy and you can do this several times in a lazy afternoon…

First, you find a long-tail keyword phrase that your target niche is searching for.  I generally try to target searches that receive a bare minimum of 1,000 searches per month. (Note: If you’re in a niche where customers are paying a lot of money for your goods or services, you will probably be able to get away with 300 to 500 searches per month.)

Second, I analyze the strength of competition (SOC) for that long-tail keyword phrase. This can be found in seconds and in one click using the best keyword research tool on the market, Micro Niche Finder. The lower the SOC, the better your chances of ranking, but if it’s 50 or below you’re golden. You stand a good chance of getting ranked for that phrase.

Here’s what Micro Niche Finder looks like once you’re inside:

fatburningfoods

Here’s a perfect example…

The term “natural fat burning foods” gets about 1,600 searches per month has an SOC of 38. That means it’s a strong candidate to target as a long-tail keyword phrase.

Third, I write a 350 to 500 word article targeting that topic. I include the exact keyword phrase in the title and in the first 50 words of the article. I also sprinkle it one or two additional times throughout the article. I submit these articles to EzineArticles watch the traffic roll in.

Advanced tip: If you want to drastically increase your chances of ranking, you want to sprinkle in LSI keywords to your article. To find these, I use the Google Keyword Tool to search for the long-tail keyword phrase I’m targeting. The first 5 results in the list are the LSI keywords. Try to use at least 3 of those 5 LSI keywords exactly once in your article.

Fourth, I rinse and repeat this process at least 5 to 10 times. Now, this is the important part…after about 2 weeks, I track which articles are doing the best (getting the most views and clicks) and then write more articles about similar long-tail keywords.

When you do this, it means big traffic. You’re taking proven winners and creating more using the exact same formula. You’re replicating success, and that’s going to multiply your traffic.

Tip: You can also use the above formula to build streams of traffic to a new blog or website. Simply put half of the articles on your website, half on EzineArticles which points back to your blog or website. This builds real value….remember that your website/blog is an ASSET that you can sell down the road. So, every article you put on your website increases the worth of the site.

Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than the method I’ve outlined above. Take a market, find a weakness, create optimized content for that keyword and steal traffic from your competitors.

Of course, you need to be able to cash in on the traffic you’re getting. If you’re sending mass amounts of traffic to a page or offer that doesn’t convert, you’re going to leave a lot of money on the table. It’s extremely easy to maximize your income in simple, clever ways, and it doesn’t take much time.

With the right offer, you can make as much from 200 to 300 visitors as you can from 1,000s of people. You don’t need a whole lot of traffic to make a boatload of money, you just need the right business.

Make Money Online NOW

Posted on May 28th, 2009 in 10x, Advice, Affiliate Program, General, Offline, Simple Cash Blog, Strategies, Videos | 2 Comments »

A question that we frequently get asked is “How can I make money online NOW?” The problem is that it takes quite a bit of time to build a real long-term business online. It’s like the “real world” in a lot of ways: you can’t open a new store and expect to be flooded with customers on opening day.

It just doesn’t work that way.

But, you CAN make money online now and build a long-term business at the same time, if you’re smart about it and you have the right skillset. First, we need to figure out what kind of marketable skills you have. Here are some ideas…

1.) Do you have a knack for programming? You can go to eLance or Guru.com and find jobs appropriate for you.

2.) Are you a graphics designer? Start advertising your services using Google Adwords and the Warrior Forum. People need new graphics all the time.

3.) Can you write well? With just a little bit of practice and experience, you can charge $10 to $20 for a 400 to 500 word article. Start off by pricing your articles low, and then move up the chain as you get more and more testimonials and experience.

4.) Do you have a lot of connections to “important people?” Find people who are having problems or need a service, and then connect them to the people you know. Charge a royalty!

5.) Do you know how to build websites? Build websites for local businesses, or even setup simple blogs using Blogger.

6.) Does a local business need help moving inventory? Become a salesperson and sell it on eBay for them. (Become a consignment expert!)

There are a number of ways to get started and make money online now, but they *do* require a little bit of work on your part. If you want to build a long term business, though, you have the opportunity to earn between $2,000 to $6,000 per month in your part time.

Seven Years to Seven Figures

Posted on February 23rd, 2009 in 10x, Advice | 1 Comment »

I’ve been listening to Michael Masterson’s Seven Years to
Seven Figures
. It’s pretty good although several books are
better in my opinion.

One thing I do when I read or listen to a book is extract
at least one golden nugget. I think I finally found the real
gold in Masterson’s book. Here it is.

Focus like crazy on one monster project for 6-12 months.
This is not the typical “FOCUS!” comment. This is a little
different. It’s this: focus on one thing for a long time.

Most people just tell you to focus but they don’t tell you
to focus and stick with it for a while. But, there’s another
secret for people still reading this…

You see, most people reading this will think that they
need to focus on one project. And they will think that
they should focus on one product as part of that project.
That’s fine, but that’s not the secret.

The real secret is this. Are you ready for it? focus on one
thing for a long time — most importantly the marketing.
In other words, to succeed you need to relentlessly
focus nearly all your efforts on marketing one thing
for a long time.

Do some research then create a product for a hungry
niche. Then, market it until you bleed. Sell, sell, sell. Your
number one objective is to sell. Stop the research. Stop
the tweaking. Stop the product creation. (Or, at least
minimize these things.) Instead, FOCUS ON SELLING. And,
stay focused. For 6-12 months. Or longer.

~ John S. Rhodes of “The Rhodes Brothers”

p.s. If you’re looking to *really* focus then you need to
take a look at the 10x Method. There’s nothing quite
like it available. And, it’s FREE. I highly recommend it.

Make Money With User Generated Content

Posted on February 3rd, 2009 in 10x, Advice, Customers, Twitter, Web Traffic | 2 Comments »

Some people are saying that user generated content (UGC) isn’t profitable. For example, Adam Cohen recently posted a link on Twitter to an article on eMarketer that includes comments like this:

“Unfortunately, if things stay as they are, this frenzy of content generation and attention is not likely to produce commensurate rewards for marketers or site publishers.”

There are other quotes that are similar. There’s this idea floating around that since big companies aren’t making a killing that it’s not possible to make money with user generated content. Part of this thinking is the result of this wrong thinking:

“The prevailing wisdom used to be that user-generated content would attract advertising volume commensurate with its audience.”

But this thinking is just plain wrong. Let’s poke at both issues: (1) Only big companies matter and (2) advertising is the only way to make money with UGC.

It’s kind of silly to think that UGC only concerns BigCo’s and monster companies. It’s like only they care about making money. Or only Fortune 500 companies have skin in the game. That’s complete hogwash. Small and medium sized companies utilize UGC all the time, and many know how to make money with it. I’ll explain this more below; stick with me.

It’s also naive to think that the smartest way to make money with UGC is via advertisements. This is like saying that the only way to make money with magazines is with full color advertisements. What about classified ads? What about subscriptions? What about inserts? There are always multiple channels of revenue to utilize.

So, now I’ll spill the beans. What’s one really smart way to make money with UGC? Well, I’ll first give you this secret tip: If you can get traffic to a web site, you can make money. It’s all about traffic. If an online marketer knows that a site is getting traffic, money can flow. This is almost an absolute truth when it comes to “hungry markets” and “hungry niches” but it’s also true even with niches that don’t seem to have much hunger.

Here’s what I’ve done on several sites where we have user generated content (e.g., blogs). I simply provide a visitor with an opportunity to watch a free video or download a free report, then I capture their email address. From there, the real magic happens. I learn what my subscribers want, find or build a product, then sell it to them.

Here’s something to drill into your mind: The profit margins on this activity are insane. You can make a killing online if you can get users to generate content for you, which in turn drives traffic, which in turn gives you the opportunity to capture emails, which in turn gives you a list, which in turn allows you to build a relationship, which in turn allows you to provide something of value in return for payment.

That is just one way that you make money with content supplied by other people. There are many other models. If you’re interested to learn more about this “way of thinking” I encourage you to take a look at the 10x Method. It’ll help you understand how to find more excellent business models liek the one I’ve just clearly laid out for you.

How to Succeed in 2009

Posted on December 29th, 2008 in 10x, Advice, Affiliate Program, Free Business Model, Links, Really Simple Method, Simple, Strategies, Web Traffic | 4 Comments »

If you want to know how to succeed in 2009 then you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to give you a simple plan to follow. If you do a little work then you’ll be pulling down more cash than ever before.

First, I want you to know that you can succeed. Many people laugh when I tell them that can generate $1,000,000 in less than 5 years. In fact, you can do it in less than 4 years if you’re aggressive:

I wish that every online marketer would read that posting. You do not have to follow the plan I’ve outlined. But, you do need inspiration and faith. You need to understand it can be done with effort and just a little time. (5 years is just over 1,800 days. That’s easy.)

Second, you need to realize that business opportunities are all around you. Don’t be blind to business opportunities like so many other people.

If you’re reading this blog posting you’re probably already generating at least a few bucks online. If you are, what have you done about it? I strongly suggest that you make a couple of minor changes. You can succeed in 2009 simply by applying some focus.

I recommend you look into the 10x Method immediately if you are making any money online.

Quickly frankly, if you are pulling down cash right now, you’ve got a potential cash cow ready for milking. The 10x Method explains everything and it’s free. As “they” say it’s risk free.

Third, you need to form a solid plan that is going to work for you. I strongly urge you follow a business model. What I mean is that you need to avoid trying to exploit little tricks. You need to stop chasing fads and silly trends.

There are real BUSINESS models out there for you to follow. That’s how to grow and make real money online. You might need some inspiration. So, here are a few places you can start:

Those are just some ideas. You can set up a membership. You can exploit private label rights. You can do article marketing. You can become an affiliate. There is so much you can do.

But don’t get distracted because lack of focus will kill your chances at success. Focus is key. Having a plan with a solid business model is essential.
