A Plan For Making $20,000 In 45 Days From Scratch

August 15, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing | Comments (0)

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

By Jimmy D. Brown of iBusiness Owner

NOTE: The following is part of a regular series entitled “How Would You Do It?” in which I’ll take hypothetical situations and give my own personal response for accomplishing the objective.


“If you had to make $20,000 in the next 45 days with no list, no traffic, no affiliates, no nothing – how would you do it?”

I actually get asked this kind of question a lot. It comes in various forms, but the meaning is always the same: how can someone will no existing assets make a significant amount of money in a relatively short amount of time.

Here’s “how I would do it”…

1. Create a high-ticket offer.

The first thing I’d do is simply go with the numbers. If I need to make $20,000 over the next year, I could find a LOT of customers. But, since I need to do it in only 45 days, my time is limited. I need to find FEWER customers while generating the same amount of money.

The best way to do that is to CHARGE MORE for whatever it is that I’m going to be selling.

If I sell something that costs $1,000 then all I need is 20 customers. That’s certainly doable in 45 days time. I’d only need to find 1 customer approximately ever 2 days. That’s not a daunting task at all.

So, instead of selling a $20 ebook where I’d need to find 1,000 customers (which is almost impossible in 45 days), I’d create a high-ticket offer that sells for around $1,000 a pop.

I need 20 customers to pull this off.

So, what kind of “high-ticket” offer would I create?

The easiest thing for me to create would be a 4-week eClass that includes personal coaching. It has a high perceived value, can be put together relatively easily and caters to the kind of clientele that I’m looking for (IE Big spenders).

All I’d need to do is write 4 lessons (one per week of the eClass), write a salesletter, get an order-processor and setup the website.

I can do this myself, find a partner or outsource it all if I have a small budget. HINT: I could easily spend $5,000 on getting this project completely done and then just look for 5 more customers.

So, that’s my first thing to do. Then…

2. Setup an affiliate program that pays 50% commission.

Going into this I know that I’d have to find customers. That would be easy if I had my own list, but the scenario says I don’t. And I don’t have a website. I don’t have any existing contacts to market this to. So, I’ve got to find new ones.

The easiest way to do this is to leverage other people’s assets since I don’t have my own. What I need to do is get other people to promote my high-ticket offer for me. They’ll send me the traffic and get the customers for me.

Obviously, they won’t do this for free.

So, I’d setup an affiliate program that pays out 50% commission for all sales they refer me. What that means is this: to make my $20,000 in sales I now need 40 customers instead of 20. When you consider that many top affiliates have tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of subscribers on their lists, this won’t be a challenge at all. One good affiliate could easily sell out all 40 by himself. With all of the top partners out there, this is a cinch to sell out the 40.

That’s also one of the considerations when I chose the high-ticket offer. Affiliates are fickle. They go where the money is. If they can promote something and make $25 per order or promote something else (like my eClass) where they’ll make approximately $500 per order, all things being equal they’ll promote my offer over the others simply because they stand to make more money.

I’d likely go with 2Checkout.com for the affiliate program tracking and pay the commissions via Paypal.

3. Find partners to promote it for me.

Then, it’s simply a matter of finding high-quality partners to market my eClass to their lists for a piece of the profit. There are a wide variety of ways to find affiliates ranging from seeing who is listed highly in Google.com for keywords and phrases related to my eClass, to visiting Clickbank to see who has existing products related to my eClass to seeing who the top ezine article writers are in my market.

I’d put together a list of 20-25 potential affiliates and contact them beginning with the “best of the best”. I’d keep going until I found a couple who are willing to promote the offer.

And then I’d watch those sales come in.

There shouldn’t be any problem at all coming up with the $20,000 profit that I need in 45 days using this strategy.

And that’s how I’d do it. Want some help doing something similar?

Let Me Work With You One-On-One And At The End Of Just Five Days You Will Have A Product To Sell for $97-$497!

In fact, all you need is ten pages of content and an email account to create this product! It’s so simple that virtually anyone can do it. Especially with my personalized, one-on-one coaching. By the end of our five days together, you will have your very own signature product to sell for a minimum of $97 per order.

Together we choose all the important details for your class (topic, title, and type) to set you up for success, creatively outline and organize “in-demand” content for your class, write a mere 10-pages of content that can be sold for $97-$497 (I’ll show you how!), setup your web site so you are ready to begin taking orders instantly, and learn insider tricks and tips for getting your class done right the first time.

You will receive a step-by-step curriculum, daily assignment to complete for me to “grade”, and a personal Q&A session with me!

Due to the personal interaction with me, there are only 50 spots available. Once they are sold out, they are gone. I can only take 50 students since I’ll be personally interacting with you EVERY DAY for this coaching class.

Getting Subscribers To Go For Repeat Subscriptions

It is not enough to have an increase in web traffic and in conversion rates. You should also want to make sure that the existing members of your site keep on coming back and not back out from their subscriptions. What methods do you use for your purposes?

Keeping Them Pleased
Most people would keep on coming back to a site if they are interested with what it contains. They will do this whether they are subscribed to the site or not.

Giving Them More
What attracts more people to a site, or to subscribing, are the freebies they can get out of it. Of course, you have to make sure that what you offer them are worth more than what they are paying you. Otherwise, it is likely that they discontinue their membership the next time it expires.

Constant Communication
Even in real life, people who feel that they are more pampered at a certain place keep on coming back there. To make sure that you always serve what they want to give, you can make your site and content interactive by placing comments box so that you can hear out their opinions and have hints on what they might want to read. If you want, you could also do surveys to everyone in your subscription list and ask them what other things they want to know about that are related to the topics in your site.

There are many other ways to keep your readers coming back for more and renewing their memberships over again. It is also a matter of tweaking the layout of your site so that they are able to read more content that they may be interested about. You can also place “Subscribe” buttons strategically so that they do not forget to do that action.

When you follow these simple methods, you will be sure to have a regular flow of profits from your subscription site.

Ensuring Viral Marketing for Your Membership Site

How else will you find way to entice more readers to your site? What methods do you employ to get more of them to sign up as subscribers?

Using Existing Members to Get More Members

Yes, you may actually use the people who have signed up in your site to get more people who may be interested. When they sign up, you can actually ask them to invite more members before moving on with the membership process. You could also do this as a contest and, in turn, they can even stand to get rewards points and other bonuses.

Viral Marketing

This process is actually called viral marketing. From the word, it works much like a virus, being transmitted from one person to another. However, through the Internet, this virus spreads more easily and in various ways also. You do not just have to place links at the bottom of your email messages, other form of media may also be used.

You can use videos, pictures and other graphics to promote your site and attract readers to subscribe. You can also make use of other files that are easy to transfer. Just make sure that you place in attractive one-liners (keep them short so that they are easily read) and use strong words to attract people to take action.

If you are able to give out free stuff over the Internet, such as simple software or a trial version of a more complicated one, or maybe an eBook related to what you are having on your subscription site, you can do the same with the emails and attach the link of your site. Once the person who gets this freebie finds that there are interesting stuff in your site, then you should gain profit from it when they already subscribe to your site.

Like the virus, using viral marketing can easily be spread from a single person to multitudes of them, letting you gain more profits easily and quickly.

One Of The Oldest Marketing Plays, and Still Works Well

Your subscribers will not only be excited about the things that you have to offer them such as the tips and tricks and other write-ups. If you offer bonuses and other privileges for being a member, it will surely make them want to come back for more. Offering these things in your sales page would also entice people to sign up as a subscriber.

This is especially true if the value of what they may possibly get is much greater than what they will be paying for subscribing into your site.

What You Can Offer to Your Subscribers

Money is not always everything. To offer something greater than the value of what your subscribers pay you does not only mean expensive material things – but, of course, you are free to give them out every once in a while. For less expensive freebies, you may actually offer your members for additional information in the form of a new subscription to another newsletter.

You can give this out free of or a discounted price, since they are members. You could also do the same for eBooks. If you want, you could also send them exclusive demonstration products that will help them succeed in what you are teaching them in your newsletters.

More Incentive Programs that Will Benefit Both Sides

You may offer your privileges free or for a discounted price. However, you could also find other ways in which you can give these incentives to your members. For example, you can give them bonuses and free things if they are able to bring in more people to subscribe to your site.

This trick does not only entice your readers to take action, it also helps you increase your subscription list with less effort – a win-win situation. Of course, be sure that your incentives are tempting enough and that you will truly be able to give them out to the people who have fulfilled the task.

Giving the Subscribers What They Are Looking for

July 2, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing,Email | Comments (0)

Tags: ,

You have used all the best and flowery words in your sales page and even promised heaven and earth – but be careful. Your sales page is what entices people into subscribing to your site. If you promise them things, they will surely be looking for it and if you are unsure or are incapable of giving, you will pay for what you have promised.

What You Should Be Promising Your Subscribers

When you are making a website that offers to give details about internet marketing, be sure that you give that out. However, just indicate in your sales page that you would give your would-be subscribers tips, tricks, and guidelines about the topics. Do not give specific themes and subject matters unless you are sure that you can make content for it. If you are not, give the reader hints about what you will be discussing in the future newsletters.

Keeping That Promise

What is written in your sales page is why your readers are converted into subscribers. So, be sure to fulfill those promises or you could end up having disgruntled subscribers. If they are not pleased with what you are giving them, it could give a negative feedback to your subscription site. For sure, they will discontinue their membership and they might even tell other people that what you are promising in the sales page is bogus.

Giving Them More

Now, if you are running out of topics to give, you could actually ask your subscribers for opinions and pieces of advice on what they want to know. This way, you are sure to hit the right spot because you are giving them exactly what they want to get from you. This ensures that your members will always stay on and come back to look for what you have to offer.

Dear InfoProduct Seller, Women are from Venus

June 9, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing | Comments (0)

By Nicole Dean
Here’s a question that I get regularly from frustrated infoproduct sellers.

“My target market is women, and I’m having a hard time getting them to promote my products. They just seem unmotivated. I don’t get it. Does my affiliate program stink or am I recruiting bad affiliates?”

Dear Infoproduct Seller:
This just goes back to basic psychology. Women and men value different things.

Car salesmen are taught this in their training. When a husband and wife walk into a car showroom, the car salesman will face the husband when he talks about things like … horsepower and engine stuff. Then, he’ll turn to the wife and talk about safety and color options.

Is this condescending? Yes. But, it’s also *generally* effective. My eyes glaze over when it comes to horsepower, but I want to know what I’m going to look like in my car! Sunroof? Radio? Now we’re talking.

So, what does this have to do with your affiliate program? Simple. Although I can’t speak for all women, obviously, I can tell you the things I value in an affiliate program.

Quality. I value my newsletter subscribers and am building a relationship with them. (According to recent studies, women go online to find relationships and support.) If your product or service is junk, then you could offer me 99% commission with a 99% conversion rate and I’m still not going to sell it to my visitors.

Affordability. I can’t promote a product that I, myself, would not buy. If you’re overpriced for what you offer, I can not promote your products to my subscribers.

Dollars and Cents. Of course money is a factor. It’s just not the #1 factor, as you may be surprised to know. 20% commission vs. 40% — I’m not as concerned about that as I am the other items in this list.

Tools: Yes, tools. This is really big, and so few affiliate managers “get it”. I think I’ve finally pinpointed why this is such a big thing (at least for me). This scenario happens way too often: I find a product I am really excited about and I eagerly sign up for their affiliate program. I log in so I can start telling everyone I know about this great product or service. I can’t wait to see what they have in the “ links” section. Will there be articles, or a rebrandable e-book maybe? Or even an informative video? It’s like Christmas morning… what will I find? And, then the affiliate section opens and there’s one measly link and a button.

My initial gut reaction is “They’re not even trying!” And now, I don’t feel valued or motivated in the least bit. You just succeeded in turning your biggest fan into someone who stuck a lousy button on her page and knows it’s not going to sell at all.

I know what you’re thinking. It’s the affiliate’s job to sell. Yes, you’re right. As an affiliate, I know that writing reviews and recommendations is the best way to sell a product. No doubt about it. All I’m saying is that you’ve got to give us at least an indicator that you’re interested in building a working “relationship’.

Is it hokey to want a relationship with an Affiliate Manager? Yes. It is. But, I can tell you that any affiliate program where I get some attention and appreciation is going to get a lot more loyalty from me than an Affiliate Manager who sits on the couch drinking beer and watching football while I’m running around working my butt off… (Hmmm…. did I say that?)

So, yes, women are from Venus. You can decide to embrace it and reap the rewards, or ignore it and wonder why your affiliates aren’t motivated. It’s your choice. As an affiliate, I’m challenging you to embrace this information and run with it.

Are you ready to attract affiliates who are excited to promote your products? And, would you like to have an affiliate program that doesn’t stink? Nicole Dean is on a mission to help you.

How Does Individual Sponsorship Falls Over Advertising

May 28, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing,free advertising | Comments (0)

Tags: , , ,

There is certainly not an incredible concern around which fairs far better concerning sponsorship and promoting. They are both marketing resources that tactically connect with various circumstances. You will discover however typical occasions when a company is confronted with deciding on among the two methods. These moments are typically an issue of direct exposure with regards to which resource can provide much more and aid in increasing a brand’s awareness. This market is the place where sponsorship takes control.

What sponsorship attains much better than advertising is incorporated in the establishment of qualitative features. These features include things like brand name graphic in the direction of consumers, creating awareness, and consumer’s personal choice of this sort of brand. On these features, sponsorship has far more guide on improving them, which promoting fails to get results of.

Here you can see some of sponsorship’s successful winning capabilities

With sponsorship, when compared to advertising, the examples below feature it generates consists of the following:

real trustworthiness – refers back to the reliability that sponsorship develops

another is exclusivity – the type of difference that places customers into higher standing

another is graphic advancement

their’s significance to way of living

don’t forget the respect which it presents

With sponsorship, an company’s identify will become connected into a sponsored event’s methods as opposed to that regarding promotion. Because of this sponsorship has the capacity to exceed the channel of mass media as well as put itself within the surroundings exactly where everyone is able to notice,

By way of example, when sponsorship is included in motion pictures; the target audience doesn’t have any break free in viewing the company or logo design currently being marketed because it’s a part of the movie. They’re not able to just do away with a scene like modifying a station on Television; they need to sit through the movie and consume every little thing that is included with it.

5 Ways To Get Started Quickly With Articles

May 22, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing,writing | Comments (0)

By Jimmy D. Brown of iBusiness Owner

Want to know what one of the biggest challenges most writers face in crafting their own original ezine articles (and other content as well, for that matter). It’s not coming up with ideas or outlining or creating a resource box.

It’s getting started.

That’s right, the opening paragraph is one of the biggest challenges most writers face. Once they get started writing – once they get in the flow – it’s much easier. But, that start can be difficult. Especially if you write a lot.

So, I’ve put together a set of 5 “openings” (along with an example of each) you can use to quickly begin writing your own content.

There are three basic uses of this swipe file

1) Use the openings as a FOUNDATION. In other words, use them simply as a starting point – a place to begin building your article. Instead of saying something boring (no offense if you’ve been doing this!) like “In this article I’m going to explain…”, use these openings to generate interest in what you’re about to say.

2) Use the openings as a FOCUS. Every article needs to have an “angle”. An approach. A perspective. Some method of emphasizing a position in an interesting, original way. Writing is art. Every piece doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, but a good craftsman isn’t ordinary. Uniqueness counts.

3) Use the openings as a FLOW. Your introduction should quickly make a smooth and seemless transition into the main bulk of your content. Said another way, your opening sentences should allow the reader to move easily to the information they are interested in consuming.

So, let’s take a look at 5 “openings” you can modify for your own use….

Note: In each of these templates, I will be using examples related to “tennis”. Why “tennis”? Because if these templates can work for the topic of “tennis”, then they can be used for ANY topic. Bottom line: these aren’t just “business-related”.

Opening #1
“There must be some reason why some _________ outperform others.” .

This opening is all about informing the reader that some people have an advantage over others. And, in order to level the playing field, they need to follow the advice in your article.

Example: “There must be some reason why certain tennis players win more matches than others. Said another way, if two equally skilled tennis player compete … why does one get to go home a winner and the other a loser?”

Opening #2
“I’ve always been impressed with those who could __________.”

This opening allows you to mention a specific result that is desired to, not only you, but the reader as well. Your article teaches the person how they too can experience the desired result.

Example: “I’ve always been impressed with those who could hit a backhand winner on the run. It never came easy to me and I have marvelled many times when others seem to hit that shot so effortlessly. Then, I figured out their secret…”

Opening #3
“Do you find yourself _________?”.

This opening is a good one because it allows the reader to identify with what you’re writing about. When they say “yes” to your question, then they know the article is for them … and they’ll read on to discover what they can do about the problem they face.

Example: “Do you find yourself double-faulting a lot? For years I gave away point after point – usually in critical times during my matches – by hitting into the net or just beyond the service box. Finally, I paid for a lesson from the local pro and this is what he taught me…”

Opening #4
“Many _________ have the erroneous belief that if they ___________”.

This opening can be used to dispel a myth, point out a misconception, or rule out a mistaken belief. The main point is to correct some wrong-thinking, replacing it with a correct alternative.

Example: “Many club level players have the erroneous belief that if they can hit their strokes harder they’ll win more points, games and matches. Unfortunately, harder doesn’t necessarily mean better. Here’s a better choice for an unbreakable serve… ”

Opening #5
“In order to make the best __________ decision for you, several factors need to be considered.”

This opening is great for articles written to help readers make informed decisions. The idea is to share a set of things the reader should consider prior to making a selection or choice.

Example: “In order to make the best racquet selection for you, several factors need to be considered. You want the racquet most suited to your game … the racquet that will enable you to perform at your peak level. Warning: Don’t buy a tennis racquet until you’ve answered the following five questions…

So, there you have it. There are 5 great “openings” you can use to give your ezine articles a jumpstart.

Before we go – have you considered SELLING your articles instead of giving them away???

If You Can Write 500 Word Articles On Just About Any Subject, I Can Show You How To Sell Them Over And Over Again!

Instead of giving away your articles for people to read for free, why not SELL your articles?! I’ve been using a powerful selling strategy for many years now that allows me and my clients to actually sell our 500-700 word articles to others who are glad to buy them. If you can write 500 word articles, then I can help you sell them.

And you can write them on topics related to just about any category, including: Internet marketing, self help / improvement, weight loss, health and fitness, business, relationships, family (marriage/parenting), women’s/men’s issues, retirement, recreation / hobbies… just about anything!

In fact, we can work together in my special coaching class to have your article-writing business setup in just five days!

Together we choose a topic to write about which people are actively buying which is a ideal “fit” for you, write ten high-quality articles using my proprietary F.A.S.T.™ method which you can immediately begin selling, setup your own sales page for your articles that is 100% “live” and ready to take orders right away, create the perfect “backend” offer to create additional instant sales so your customers can spend more money with you from the beginning, jump-start your promotion for your new article-writing business by getting your initial visitors to the new sales page.

You will receive a step-by-step curriculum, daily assignment to complete for me to “grade”, and a personal Q&A session with me!

Due to the personal interaction with me, there are only 50 spots available. Once they are sold out, they are gone. I can only take 50 students since I’ll be personally interacting with you EVERY DAY for this coaching class.

How To Create Your Own Product Package

May 20, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing | Comments (0)

Tags: , , ,

Here’s an amazingly simple way to create your “own” online product in as little as 2 hours…

You’re going to create a themed product “package” featuring related Info-Products.

By bundling together a selection of Ebooks on the subject of online auction marketing, ezine advertising, beginner online marketing, etc., you can create a unique and highly profitable product in no time flat.

Creating your own unique product offer entails just two basic steps as follows…

1. Develop the product itself.

Your objective is to bundle together a related group of online products. Obviously you’ll need a list of products with “master resale rights” to pick and choose from.

Click here to discover a fine selection of Ebooks with Full Resale Rights:

Once you’ve selected the products you’d like to package together, I recommend bundling them together in one “Master Ebook” using an ebook compiler. (Please note this is strictly optional, but a nice additional incentive for your customers…)

Just hop over to this link now for a list of free ebook compilers that you can download and use – absolutely free of charge.

You will need to upload your products to your own web space.

In addition to the product download links, I like to write a tutorial on how to advertise and make money with the reseller package -a nice surprise bonus for customers!

2. Create the web site.

I use Microsoft Front Page to create my sites.

A sales letter is just a single web page, explaining simply and clearly what’s included in the package, and what *benefits* they will receive by purchasing the product…

Always answer *the* question that every prospective customer is asking as they read your ad… “What’s in it for me?”

Your web site really doesn’t need to be any more than 2 pages: your sales page (as I just covered), and a download, or “thank you” page…

On the download page, thank the customer for their order, and provide them with the download link to the Master Ebook (or the direct list of products should you decide to go without the Master Ebook format).

Now, if you’re looking for a good merchant services provider, I highly recommend ClickBank.com or Paypal.

Either of these services will process customer payments, as well as deliver your customer to your download/thank you page automatically.

Each of them provides beginner set up instructions.

(If you want to find out how to set up your own Clickbank account, you can download my free “Working With Clickbank” Ebook from here. )

Although selling other peoples’ products through affiliate programs, or buying the rights to products, can serve as extremely effective ways to make a living online, there’s just “something about” creating your OWN product that offers a sense of pride and satisfaction like nothing else can!

So hopefully today’s article has taken you a couple BIG steps towards doing just that!

Seobook.com Keyword Density Checker Can Guide Your Keywords To The Right Web Page Density

May 16, 2014 in Affiliate Marketing | Comments (0)

Tags: , , ,

I have recently revised the web page content on my software developer website so site visitors would read content that is more “sales oriented”. This was something I needed to do because my site was becoming much more visible thanks to the seo ( search engine optimization) efforts I have made during the last few months. And because of the extensive updates I made, it was necessary to check the density of the keywords and keyword phrases I used in each web page in my site. I have discovered the keyword density analyzer tool,

“http://tools (dot) seobook (dot) com/general/keyword-density/”, is an excellent way to do this.

The Seobook.com keyword density analyzer tool is very simple to use. Upon entering the online utility at “http://tools (dot) seobook (dot) com/general/keyword-density/”, simply key in the URL of the web page you want to report results for in the “Url of your website” text box. By default it will ignore words of less than three (3) characters and minimum occurrences for less than two (2) words. Also, the web page’s meta tag keywords and meta description are included in the scan as well as Seobook.com’s default “stop word list”, though these can also be toggled on or off.

Upon clicking the “Go” button, you will be taken immediately to the results page, which is organized in an easy to understand three (3) column format. The first column is for “Total Words”, which includes the name of the word, the word count and the keyword density percentage of the word as it appears in the URL you elected to scan. The next two columns are entitled “Two Word Phrases” and “Three Word Phrases”. They include the same information as the “Total Words” column, except they report for two (2) and three (3) keyword phrases, respectively.

Based on prior research, I have learned that the maximum keyword density per web page for a specific keyword or keyword phrase that is acceptable by Google is no more than 2%. For Bing and Yahoo it is less restrictive at 5%. So I orchestrate my keyword density per page for Google, since its standards are the most stringent of the big three (3) search engines.

The Seobook.com keyword density analyzer tool is easy to use, quick and free. I highly recommend this handy online software utility for anyone who needs to check their web page keyword density for a wide variety of keywords and keyword phrases.
