Do you want to learn one of the easiest ways to make tons of money online? Once you have learned the basics (I recommend my free internet marketing course), there is a simple strategy that can help you earn $1,000/week or much more. Let me explain how it works in four steps:
Step One: Write a Book
Okay, not an actual book, but a short eBook. Anywhere from 20-40 pages will be just fine. You should pick a topic that you are comfortable with and something you like, because your entire business will be built around this subject. Write your ebook, make sure it looks nice and convert it into a tidy PDF.
Step Two: Build a Squeeze Page
Now, you’re going to give this eBook away for free. But there is a catch, you are first going to require that they visitor give you their email address where you will send the download link. To do this, you will create a “squeeze page.” a squeeze page is one of those mostly-white pages with the big box for an email, here’s an example:
You can actually download that one as a WordPress theme, making it super easy to setup your own squeeze page. On this page, you add some a quick sales copy about your amazing eBook and a big “enter your email” box to receive that book.
You’ll want to sign up with Aweber.com, which is an online service that you can use to manage a mailing list. They will show you how to link your account with the email box on your site; this way, when someone enters their email on the form, they are immediately added to your mailing list.
Step Three: Go to Clickbank & Write Some Autoresponders
Here’s how you make money. Once you have their emails, you’re going to be sending them affiliate products and services after they download the eBook. So, go to Clickbank.com (sign up if you need to) and find products that are related to your niche.
Then, you write what are called “autoresponders” – emails that are automatically sent (by Aweber) on a specified day after a user signs up. So if they sign up on May 1st and you want to send emails at 2, 4 and 6 days after they signed up, they will receive the emails on May 3rd, 5th, and 7th. Got that? This is all handled automatically within Aweber.
What you need to do is write about 5-10 autoresponders that promote the Clickbank products you found above. Tell them how these products can benefit them and include your Clickbank affiliate link.
Make sure you test all of this so far: Read your eBook, sign up on your own squeeze page and download the book, make sure the autoresponders send when they should, etc. It should all be working at this point.
Step Four: Get Traffic
With everything rolling, it’s time to get some real visitors! This is the hardest part of the process and, obviously, the better you do here, the more money you will make.
If you have a little money to spend, I suggest you run PPC ads on Google.com through AdWords. Unless your topic is crazy competitive, you should be able to buy clicks for under $0.40 each and depending on your niche, you could make upwards of $10 per subscriber.
Another option for traffic is to run a contest, i.e. offering one random subscriber the newest Apple product. The problem with this is that many people will only sign up to win, and truly have no interest in what your are offering. These people are not targeted and not nearly as likely to buy what you are selling. Get creative here and find the best ways to build traffic to your new squeeze page. Remember: the more visitors you have, the more you will make.
So let’s do a quick recap: you write an eBook on the topic of your choice, setup a simple website to capture emails through Aweber and deliver the free eBook. Then, you find 5-10 affiliate products and write autoresponders that will send within 2-4 weeks after the user signs up. Finally, you get some real traffic to preform the steps above.
As the users start rolling in, they will order the products in your autoresponders and start making you some money. Slowly but surely, your list will grow and you will have a massive cash cow on your hands.
