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:


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.

Internet Marketing Course

Posted on August 12th, 2009 in Advice, PLR, Really Simple Method, Reports, Reselling, Simple, Strategies | No Comments »

If you’ve been looking for an internet marketing course, I’m sure you know how difficult it is to find a high value, low cost course. You’ll find prices ranging from $10 to over $2,000 in some cases.

It’s extreme!

When my brother John and I first entered the internet marketing business, we were absolutely overwhelmed by the number of choices. I remember an argument I had with my brother early a couple of weeks after we decided to become internet marketers…

“There’s so many different ways to get started. The Internet Marketing Courses we find are typically too expensive and are too complex for us right now. What do we do?”

We had to find the answer ourselves. Instead of buying the “next best” internet marketing course (some of the “gurus” are launching new products every week) we instead did some research to find the best way to get profiting immediately.

We figured that if we saw the money flowing in as quick as possible, it would motivate us more. We didn’t want to have to wait months for a paycheck.

It was around that time that we discovered the power of products that have Master Resale Rights (MRR) or Private Label Rights (PLR). With PLR and MRR products, you can literally copy and paste to have your own product that you can sell on autopilot.

Other people create entire products and then offer out Master Resale Rights and Private Label Rights to some of the products. Master Resale Rights gives you the ability to resell the product and also sell the resale rights to other people. Private Label Rights gives you the ability to resell the product and also modify the contents of the product.

When modifying the contents of PLR products, you can add in links to your sites (or affiliate links) and take complete credit for writing the material.

So, it’s like creating your own product without any of the work. And, you keep all of the profit.

How We Made An Extra $54,000 This Year

Posted on June 14th, 2009 in Advice, Customers, listbuilding, Membership Blueprints, News, Offline, Really Simple Method, Reports, Reselling, Strategies, Web Traffic | 1 Comment »

One of the coolest parts about being an Internet Marketer is the fact that you can quickly implement new ideas and concepts into your business and start measuring the results instantly.

So far this year, we’ve made an extra $54,000 directly due to attending a high-end Internet Marketing seminar – the Earn1KaDay IM Summit. (We expect that we’ll make an extra 6 figures by the end of the year.)

The networking was invaluable, of course, but what was really cool were the different ideas that we pulled out of the seminar. All of the speakers were people (including ourselves) who are making a significant amount of money every single month.

What really interested us, though, was the fact that so many people are making money online in different ways. For example, one of the speakers, Gene Pimentel, researches high quality domain names and then sells them (some to the tune of 5 figures.)

He doesn’t do any backlink building, he just puts a 200 word snippet on his website that says he’s accepting offers, and that’s IT. It’s working out like gangbusters for him.

He includes a step-by-step process of EXACTLY how he did it. We taught a couple people the system (they’ve never made money online before) and it REALLY “sunk in” for them. It’s great if you only have a few minutes per day, and it provides huge income if you do it right.

One of our buddies, Michael Gunn, who also spoke at the Earn1KaDay seminar, is making a killing online, too. If I remember right, he was making a couple thousand per month using his niche domination techniques at the time of the seminar. Fast forward about 5 months, and now he’s dangerously close to the 6 figure mark. VERY cool.

His presentation was absolutely awesome for anyone interested in truly “crushing it” in niche marketing. The really cool part is that he gives you the exact e-mail templates he’s using to make that much money during his presentation, so you can almost just copy and paste.

We applied a couple of these techniques to one of our niche businesses and saw an instant increase in the number of opt-ins and money flowing in.

There were a LOT of other speakers there with great strategies and techniques, but those two really “hit home” for us.

So here’s the deal…Dennis Becker, the owner of Earn1KaDay and the “father” of the Earn1KaDay IM Summit, just put the recording of the summit up for sale. It’s two days of money-making material. John and I got a copy and we’ve both watched it through twice, and some of the presentations we’ve watched 3 or 4 times (Gene’s and Michael’s).

It’s that good.

These are step-by-step techniques you can directly apply to your business, whether you’ve made $0 online or you’re making 6 figures. It WILL take you to the next level.

Go here now and buy it. There’s a couple “special bonus” on the page from John and I, too.

After you buy it, watch the DVDs first and THEN look at the “data disc” that Dennis provides. It’s better than many of the $3,000 DVD home study courses out there.

Internet Marketing Affiliate Program Tips

Posted on April 26th, 2009 in Advice, Affiliate Program, Clickbank, General, Membership Blueprints, PLR, PLR Club, Reports, Reselling, Strategies, Traffic Drill, Web Traffic | No Comments »

Finding a great internet marketing affiliate program is a daunting task. There are literally tens of thousands of internet marketing products available on the market, many of which have affiliate programs. So, how do you find the best one for your website or list?

The best internet marketing affiliate programs have the following characteristics:

* They track multiple sales. If you send a visitor to a merchant’s products, is your affiliate ID cookied (attached to that particular visitor) for future sales? A smart merchant will always follow up with visitors about upsells and offers, and you should be getting the credit for all of those sales.

* Sales are tracked for months, not days. Your affiliate tag on a customer shouldn’t expire for at least 30 days. Many merchants set a limit on how long a customer is “tagged” for, and if they purchase after this tag runs out, you no longer make any commissions from sales of that customer. The best internet marketing affiliate programs last for 60 days or more.

* You’re making a significant amount per sale. There’s no sense promoting a product if you’re not making at least $10 to $15 per sale. It’s barely worth your time. You should also be making at least 50% of the sale price. Some merchants offer 70% commissions or more.

* High conversion rates. If a product doesn’t convert, there’s no sense in promoting it. Also remember that lower priced products should convert much better than higher priced products. Track your numbers to make sure that you’re maximizing the value of each visitor you send.

* Pre-sales funnel built in. Many great internet marketing affiliate programs have a follow-up system built on that drastically increase conversion rates. This means more money in your pocket. It is also easier to promote these products because you’re offering “free content” to your website or list, not a sales pitch.

* Recurring commissions. Only a small percentage of programs out there offer recurring commissions, but getting customers into a recurring billing membership is invaluable because many customers will pay you for years to come, month after month. However, conversion rates for memberships are typically lower. Be sure to track your results carefully!

The Rhodes Brothers Affiliate Program offers multiple product affiliate tracking, high conversion rates, and pre-sales funnels ready to sell YOUR website customers or list. Click here to check it out.

How to Make It Easy

Posted on November 22nd, 2008 in 10x, Advice, Customers, Free Business Model, Reselling, Simple, Simple Cash Blog, Traffic Drill, Twitter, Web Traffic | 2 Comments »

Make It EasyIf you want to make money you need to know how to make it easy for people to help you. It’s very difficult to build a strong business without getting some assistance from others.

In this article, I’ll show you exactly how to make it easy to get people to help you. First, I’ll talk about setting up affiliate support web pages. Second, I’ll talk about getting traffic to your niche web site or blog. Third, I’ll explain the importance of back scratching and helping other people ahead of time.

One of the best ways to make money online and drive traffic is to enlist the help of affiliate marketers. Internet marketing affiliate programs can lead to incredible traffic if you offer 100% commissions on big ticket products and services, which is exactly what we do with the 10x Method affiliate program. What affiliate marketer doesn’t want to promote a $47 product with 100% commissions?

But wait, you’re only going to get affiliates to promote your service if you make it easy. So, you need to take the time to provide easy affiliate link building tools, instant marketing set up tools, targeted keyword lists, free promotional images, email message templates, and so on.

Here’s the Rhodes Brothers affiliate product link creation page. As you can see, we make it easy to create links but also quickly access the sales pages. This is the kind of at-a-glance reference affiliates want.

As another reference, you should look at the Traffic Drill reseller sign up page. On that page, we explain reselling, we explain the benefits of being a Traffic Drill reseller, we explain the set process using simple language, and most important we make it easy to make money as a reseller. We maintain everything from the sales page to the sign up page to the member maintenance. Literally, we give you the power to own a membership without any hassle.

Here’s another example. I like how Kevin Riley does affiliate marketing because he spends money on tools and processes that make my life easier. We don’t promote for many people, but Kevin makes it easy. For example, when he sends out emails to his affiliates he includes their specific affiliate URLs. I do a simple cut-n-paste and I’m done. There’s no effort and very little thinking, except for the marketing. I can focus and make money because it’s easy to work with Kevin.

Here’s a bit of business advice. If you’re serious about getting affiliates to help you, then spend the time and money to make it simple and make it easy for others to help you. The less “friction” you generate the better.

Bonus! If you’ve read this far I want to give you a gift. Please download Cracking The Code: Earn $20 Per Day With Free Blogs — Did you notice how easy I made that for you? It’s a simple click and you benefit without any more effort. The more you can do like that, the more loyalty and goodwill you’ll generate. This is the power of making life easy for others.

Let’s change gears now and talk about generating traffic to your niche web sites and blogs. What I’m going to cover is simple but effective. Don’t be fooled by how easy these things are to do.

If you look above, you will see that I talk about Kevin Riley for an entire paragraph (lucky guy). I’m doing that because now Kevin might link to me or help me. I would never demand traffic or links from Kevin, but I will ask very nicely. I’ll send him a note or I’ll send him a direct message on Twitter. (Hey, are you Following me on Twitter?) If I’m lucky, I’ll get some link love which translates to short and long term traffic.

Another thing you can do to easily drive traffic is build relationships with others via JVs and giveaways. Here’s an example. I did 90% of the work on the Simple Giveaway. I bought the domain, set up the page, and emailed everyone about everything. I coordinated the launch and I made it easy for my partners to do business with me. I was rewarded with tons of traffic and hundreds of sign ups to Free Business Model.

How else can you help others help you? Well, if you have a blog, do you have web 2.0 social bookmarking widgets installed? (Hint: I like Sociable.) At the bottom of this blog posting there are several buttons you can click to Digg, Stumble and otherwise bookmark this posting. (Please take action. Click-n-save!)

The last thing I’ll talk about is back scratching, both formal and informal. I’ll also talk about helping people ahead of time.

So, what’s formal back scratching? The idea is simple. You work within a membership or system with a group of other like-minded people. For example, maybe you work with the Rhodes Brothers via our coaching program. You can also find that kind of support inside Traffic Drill, which is dedicated to driving traffic to your web site. Plainly speaking, the idea is that you pay a small fee to help other people and have them help you. It’s simple but deadly effective.

Now, how about informal back scratching? The concept is straightforward. You would go out of your way to help other people via social web sites like Twitter. For example, just today I asked about 7-8 trusted Twitter colleagues to take a look at a new blog entry I wrote in a special niche. If they like the page and it’s valuable, they will likely Stumble or Digg that page. If it’s not good, they’ll give me feedback so I can improve it. Importantly, I make it easy to Stumble and Digg, but also provide me with feedback via Twitter. That’s key.

What works better, formal back scratching or informal back scratching? Honestly, they both work well. However, if you’re looking for guaranteed help or traffic, then services like Traffic Drill are your best bet.

What I want you to understand is that you will build up goodwill and karma over time if you know how to make it easy for other people to make money. Think about it. If someone is making it easy for you to make money, you’ll be loyal. You’ll drive traffic for them. You’ll praise them and help them. This karma and goodwill leads to joint ventures and revenue multipliers.

Do good unto others and it will return to you many times. It’s not only the “right thing” it’s the way of profits and a satisfying life.
