Guest Blogging: How to Get FREE Traffic

Posted on May 30th, 2010 in Advice, blogging, Simple Cash Blog, Strategies, Web Traffic | 9 Comments »

Why are people going nuts about guest blogging?

The answer is simple. You can get a ton of FREE TRAFFIC.

Here’s how to get all the free traffic you can handle… and how you can finally become a guest blogging freak. I’m going to spill the beans for you.

First, let’s set the record straight…

I’m tired of people saying that they can’t get a ton of free traffic. They say “there’s no free traffic” out there. Well, that’s wrong. All you have to do is be cool and ask for it.

I use many different traffic-getting secrets. But in this blog post we’re going to look at guest blogging because it’s so easy a hamster can do it.


First, you’ve gotta find blogs in your niche. Let’s say you’re into fire-eating. That’s your thing. What you do is hunt down blogs about fire-eating and you’re 80% of the way to getting free traffic.

The reason is that you’ve taken some action. Most people — not you! — are totally lazy and won’t even do a little work to find some blogs.

It ain’t that hard to go to Google or Google Blog Search to find blogs in your niche. But like I said, 80% of the people reading this won’t even do that.

OK, so now that you’ve found these blogs, you just contact the blog owners and say this to them:


Well, maybe not exactly like that but you get what I’m saying…

Most folks are tired, lazy and have no time. If you tell them that you will do work for FREE they will be happy to listen to you. Listen, if I came to YOU and said…


…for YOU, wouldn’t you be a little bit interested? Sure you would!

Who doesn’t want FREE stuff, especially free content from someone else. And, imagine if you said that your content was 100% unique — never published any other place.

So, when you do this, the other person is listening and there’s a good chance that no one else has ever offered to do FREE WORK for them. That alone is very special.

Now imagine that the only thing you ask for is a little author box or bio box at the end of the article. This is just like you’d do on a site like EzineArticles — diggin’ me?

There are two things that happen here. You gotta pay attention to this…

1. You’re getting direct traffic from that blog to your site. People will click the link in your bio box and come to your site. Sweet!

2. Here’s a ninja secret: you’ll also get a BACKLINK from that blog. Just imagine getting a fresh-n-hot backlink from a high PageRank blog. Heck, even a low PageRank blog is good. That backlink will be noticed by Big Brother Google and boost the juice of YOUR SITE. That means traffic… from Google!

This is like article marketing on El Crackola. And, you get DIVERSITY in your backlinnks doing this.

But wait, there’s more —


You are also establishing a relationship with the blog owner. If they are smart they are building a list. In fact, if they are smart… they already HAVE a list. If that’s the case… and YOU have been nice to them, and you’ve built a relationship…

That’s got huge potential for a JOINT VENTURE.

That’s a fancy way of saying that you can work with your new friend — maybe they will mail to their list saying that you’re awesome. You sell some stuff. You get traffic, make money. You and your new friend split the money 50/50 and EVERYONE WINS.

Listen… this is all from doing a simple guest blog post.

How hard is this?

IT’S NOT. You know in your gut that this is EASY to do…

But, maybe you need a “visual” and maybe you wanna see a video of this? We’ll I just released a video about how to find blogs and some other ninja magic stuff related to guest blogging right inside…


I’m not trying to sell you anything here… This is a FREE blog post about getting FREE TRAFFIC. However, I know that some people really want the extra cool stuff… the advanced tricks. I hear you.

Quick Disclaimer: The Simple Cash Blog is for folks who have a few bucks to spare and want advanced traffic-getting secrets. Not the crap you see all over the place.

In any event, about that video…

I created the Guest Blogging Firepower video. It’s only for Simple Cash Blog Members. Not just ANYONE.

If you wanna skip the dreaded “squeeze page” you should go directly to our private letter that spells it all out in detail… maybe we give too much away?

Simple Cash Blog Private Letter

(Hey, I can’t blame you… I often skip squeeze pages too… but don’t miss that letter. It offers up some instant training too. I give it my highest recommendation.)

That’s about it.

You’re ready for free traffic now, just by guest blogging. And, don’t forget about those Joint Ventures (JVs) and other cool stuff that most people don’t share — but you’re getting for FREE here.

Start an Internet Business at Home From Scratch

Posted on May 30th, 2009 in Advice, News, Reports, Strategies | No Comments »

Just a quick note…

Marlon Sanders is offering a free report on how he made his first $1,000,000 online. In addition, he explains how he has been able to create a list of just under 200,000 people. (Impressive!)

If you’re trying to figure out how to start an internet business at home from scratch Marlon’s book is a good place to start.

And remember…

It’s FREE.

What’s the catch? (There’s always a catch, right?) Well, it really is free. The catch is that you have to give Marlon your name and email address. That’s it.

By the way, Marlon’s been around a long time. For that reason alone, I have respect for him. “He’s been there, done that.” He’s seen it all. And, in fact, he’s responsible for the success of many internet marketers.

(He does sell some bizarre stuff like Red Factor Matrix #RF8 but most of his material is pretty good.)

So, go grab his free report to learn how he built a list of 200k people. I recommend it.

  • “I don’t care how “cool” you think widget-whackers are. It makes no sense to try and sell widget-whackers to people who have no idea what a widget is, or why it should be whacked.”
  • “Benefits exist in the head and the heart. Everything else is a feature.”

  • “Focus is the thing that separates the successes from the almosts.” (Here’s a big hint: Learn about the 10x Method)
  • “It is possible to run a business with nothing but a good address book.”
  • Finish first. Polish second.
  • “Grammar Cops and Zombies don’t really offer criticism to help, although they often claim that’s their goal. They’re nitpicking to show they know more than you. This usually happens when you’re doing something they can’t – making a profit and making a difference.”
  • “You need to listen to both individuals and markets. While you do, remember: Individuals sometimes lie. Markets never do.”
  • “When in doubt: Test. When you’re certain: Test anyway.”
  • “When a person expresses an opinion on a thing, he is telling you more about himself than about that thing.”
  • Give people what they want, the way they want it, and you can get almost everything else wrong and still be a success.
  • “Increase the desire and lower the resistance.”
  • “If you can touch it, it’s a feature. If you feel it, it’s a benefit.”
  • “When you make someone laugh, you reset their attention span.”
  • “Expect more than anyone else, and you’ll usually get it.”

…and there are many more.

It’s an excellent report.

How to Survive a Financial Crisis

Posted on September 18th, 2008 in 10x, Advice, Affiliate Program, Customers, Free Business Model, News, PLR Club, Strategies | 7 Comments »

Financial Crisis If you want to know how to survive a financial crisis then you’ve come to the right place. Before I give you the secret I want to share a story with you.

This morning I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned. Of course I only saw the dentist for a few minutes. The rest of my time was spent with Gerry, the hygienist. She’s a great woman and loves to talk.

Before I knew it, we were talking to about the financial crisis and she was asking me how to get through it. I started talking about index funds, balancing your portfolio, regression to the mean, no load mutual funds, FDIC, and more. Then there was a deer-in-headlights look and I felt bad. At that moment I realized that she was very afraid.

Then something amazing happened. She asked if I would look at all her investment portfolio; Gerry was heading to “her guy” later in the day so the documentation was out in her car. She literally ran to her car and grabbed her IRA and investment information for me to look at. (It’s true!)

It’s astounding what people will do during a financial crisis. Fear is a powerful driver. Losing a huge chunk of your retirement in 2-3 days is painful. Fear and pain also drives unusual decisions, like people sharing intimate financial details with each other.

I told you this crisis story because it sets the stage for how I feel about it all. Like many people, I have a balanced portfolio, personal savings accounts, bonds, and more. And, like you, I care about my financial situation and the shocks in the stock market.

But —

I’m not as worried as most people. I’m going to share a secret with you. It’s something that will reward you forever if you really take it to heart and take action.

I’m very calm these days because I know that I can sell. Yes, I’m a salesman. This is very powerful and drives peace and harmony with my personal finances.

If you can sell, you can always survive. If you can sell, you can lose all of your money and still pull down cash and feed your family and pay the mortgage.

“But I don’t like to sell!”

I hear you and I understand. If you don’t like selling, then first I have to say that you probably don’t understand selling. It’s not as dirty as you might think. Selling, when done right, is simply giving people what they want for a fair price. It’s as easy as a conversation. (It’s true.)

But there’s another piece of this secret. The second part of my advice is that you need to start your own business. If you run your own business then you can survive any financial turmoil as long as all your money isn’t tied up in the stock market. It shouldn’t be!

When you own your own business you are completely in control. You can’t control the market or your customers, but you can survive dark times. In fact, when things are grim you are best positioned to strike out on your own. That point is worthy of it’s own blog posting but it’s true. You can take that to the bank.

So, in short, if you want to make it through tough financial times then you need to sell. You need to embrace the power of marketing. If you don’t know how, start learning today. Secondly, start your own business and focus on sales. Be sure that those sales translate to profits, not just pure revenue. Make money and grow.

Need more help?

Here is some specific advice on how to make money online with internet marketing. You can easily start selling for high profits today.

  • Exploit the PLR on your computer
  • — In short, you can use the PLR on your computer to make money quickly and easily. You can re-write and brand PLR reports and sell them in many different ways.

  • Create a membership site
  • — In less than 2 hours you can set up a membership site and start making money. It’s easy to survive a stock market drop if you’re pulling down $1,000 each week through your own membership.

  • Follow proven business models
  • — Join a low cost membership which gives you free ebooks and proven business models. Also, look for memberships, clubs, and coaches who can help you generate cash quickly and easily.

  • Simply drive web traffic to earn cash
  • — If you can find high quality affiliate programs you can make money just by putting customers in touch with people who have great products and services. If you don’t like selling, consider the affiliate path.

    Think about what you want out of life. The only way you can really get what you want is to be in business for yourself. You can get started today.

    Don’t depend on big, greedy, soulless corporations to keep you floating. Take charge and brush off any financial crisis.
