GFC? You Can Make $200-$300 A Week for a $1 investment

With the global recession, oil prices, interest rates etc, etc there’s a bigger strain on our wallets than ever before, but how about instead of focusing all our attention on scrimping and saving we embraced the abundance of the universe and just made more money?

Doesn’t that seem logical.

Here’s a method I’ve been using for a while now and I knew absolutely Nothing about computers and internet marketing. I just followed someones instructions and even though I was skeptical it worked and I started to make money.

It does not require you to have an adwords account or even have your own website.

I have been researching internet based home business for a while now and I know that some people out there are selling this exact  method or very similar methods from between $27 to upwards of $700 generally depending on the level of support they offer.

Most of the internet marketing methods they are selling out there now are this exact method or a variation of this method.

So why am I giving it away for free?

Is it because I’m just such a nice guy (well no, but my mum says I’m lovely)

You will see for yourself as you follow the steps.

This method could see you make plenty of cash if you work it day and night but really I think the average person would just prefer to put in about 5 hours a week and make an extra $200-$300 on top of their normal pay-packet.

Allow yourself about 2-3 hours to set this system up. Then you’ll need to put in about 5  hours work a week in the first few weeks. Once you’ve started making money (usually in about 2-3 weeks) then you can decide how much time you want to put in, but it gets easier and easier as you go along.

This method is about making money selling other peoples information products.

Ok so here it is.

Step 1 – Research

Find a hot niche market.

Look through the newspaper, check blogs, read ezine articles and just see what people are looking for and talking about.

Don’t go looking for evidence of your preconceived ideas of a particular niche.

Remember that it doesn’t need to be your passion or your expertise (although it’s nice if is).

So don’t go in there thinking “Oh I really love pink bunny slippers” lets see who else does. Go looking for what people are talking about “Oh I noticed a lot of articles on self care, maybe this could be a niche market?” (hint,hint).

Ok so once you think you’ve found a hot niche go to www.googleeasysearch.com and begin to research keywords. Think about words and phrases that people would use when they’re using a search engine.

What you are looking for a keywords that are searched for between 30,000-70,000 times per month (Local search volume for the United States).

Any less than this and the market is too small and any more than this there is too much competition from large companies.

Find yourself about 10-15 keywords. You also want as little competitors as possible. This is indicated by the green lines on the left. Just hover your mouse over it.

If you think you’ve found a great niche market but there is just too much competition then start to get more specific, for example I recently used this process for the vegan market. While I found a lot of people were looking for information on being vegan there was just way too much competition.By reading blogs and surveys I discovered there were a lot of people considering being Vegan but were concerned about getting enough protein in their diets.

Niche market – Protein for Vegans. (Don’t use this one it’s mine. haha just kidding)

Step 2 – Find a product

Once you have found your Niche market it is time to find a product. What you are looking for is a down-loadable  information product such as an e-book or an audio. When you’re first starting, look for products around the $30 mark.

Ok so to find an information product you can sell,  go to www.clickbank.com and sign up for a free account. Once you have signed up click on Marketplace and browse the products. The marketplace is where people allow you to sell their information product and in return they pay you a percentage of the sale. Often up to 75% , some products have on-going subscription fees and offer their affiliates a cut of these.

What you are looking for is a product that would appeal to your niche market. For example I chose a book called A Fresh New Vegan You. This was being retailed for $27, and as an affiliate I received $11.98 (this is a little low, usually aim for around $20).

The reason I chose this product even though the return was a little low was because of it’s convincing sales letter and high conversion rate. Look for a product that would appeal to your niche market. Look for a convincing sales letter and simple, plain text website. Also check the conversion rate with clickbank (That is how many prospects converted to sales).

Once you have decided on a product, click the PROMOTE button and then enter your nickname in the pop up box.(Do not worry about the tracking ID). This will then give you a http:// address for example (http://a725065veiosd5agn5nd4q3qa6.hop.clickbank.net/). This will be in the top box. Copy this address.

Do not worry about the html code in the box below this is for embedding the link on your website and we don’t want the hassle of creating a website.

Step 3 – Register a domain name

This is the only step in the process you will have to spend money. It can be as little as $0.89 for a .info domain name.

Go to www.godaddy.com and register a domain name that is in the same general realm of your niche but don’t get too specific so that you can use the same domain later to sell different products later.

For example the domain name I used to promote A Fresh New Vegan You is www.good-food-ideas.info. This cost me just $0.89.

Ok so now you have registered your domain name, log in and go to domain manager on the left hand side of the page.

Once in Domain Manager tick the box of your domain name. This will highlight the icons above. Click on FORWARDtwo options will drop down. Choose FORWARD DOMAIN.

This will take you to another page a box to insert the address to forward the domain to.

Paste the http:// you saved from Clickbank.

Ok so now whenever anyone clicks on or types in your domain name. i.e. www.good-food-ideas.info they will be directed to the sales page of the product you are promoting, you’ll be paid anytime they make a purchase.

Ok so that’s simple enough but how does anyone know you’re domain name?

Where are they going to click if you don’t have a website? Well that’s step 4.

Step 4 -Driving Traffic to your Domain Name

Ok so in this step you can either put in a little work and do it for FREE or you can hire a professional to do it for a small fee (sometimes seriously small like $7-$8).

The next step is going to a site called www.ezinearticles.com. This is a site where writers submit articles and Ezines (online magazines) pick them up and publish them.

You give away all the intellectual property rights to your article but in return they must include the authors name AND (you guessed it) your DOMAIN NAME.

So here you can submit articles relating to your niche market. From your research you’ll know what they’re looking for right?

So go write an article like Vegan Protein – 5 Essential Sources. Your articles should be around 250-400 words ideally.

Don’t write rubbish. You want to establish yourself as an expert in the field.

But what if you have absolutely no idea what to write?

What if your topic is so far out of your expertise you can’t even imagine what to write?

What if you just couldn’t be bothered writing an article about becoming a vegan (as you bite into your meat pie?)

Simple! Pay someone else to do it.

Go to www.elance.com. This is a site where professional writers hang out looking for work. Just tell them the topic and a brief description of what you want and writers will apply to write your article and tell you their asking price.

You then have all rights to that article and can simply put your name in the authors box.

What I do is rather than looking for 10 different topics I give the writers a very general brief and then ask them for a 3000 word article.

Then with a bit of editing I submit that as 10 separate articles.

For example I asked them to write me an article about becoming a vegan and could they please include information about vegan protein, how to become a vegan and some vegan recipes. A lovely lady who had recently become a vegan herself offered to write the article for $80. I then turned this into 10 different articles. That’s just 8 bucks an article.

Ok so now you have your articles submitted to ezinearticles, there is an approval process and usually takes about 2-3 days.

They will not approve anything that is simply advertising or includes links to other sites (the only place for your domain name is in the author’s box).

Also there is a place to include the keywords at the bottom, don’t just write an article linked together with keywords.

Now you want to submit that article to some search engines so copy the url at the top of your article page and go to www.submitexpress.com this will submit your article to over 40 search engines for free. If you really want to get it out there, then there is software you can buy like content www.contentcrooner.com. This will submit your article to 1520 search engines (This is how you see really quick, effortless results) Costs about $270 i think.

Ok so here’s another important way to drive traffic to your url. Create a blog specific to your niche market. go to www.wordpress.com

What could you post in your blog?? hmmm? maybe your articles?

Get involved in other peoples blogs and just become part of the community in general.

When you update your blog head to http://www.ping-o-matic.com and they will do something (I’m not computer savvy at all so I can’t tell you exactly what it is they do) but they will do something to inform other people your blog has been updated.

So that’s it. There is a few pitfalls along the way and if you’re having any trouble just email us at admin@theshift.info.

Ok so have you guessed now why I would give this system away for free when others are charging for it? Well it’s simple. I’d love you to come and checkout my life coaching program The Shift- Based on Da Vinci’s 7 Principles of Living at www.theshift.info

Best of luck
