3 Guaranteed Steps to Make Money Online

Dear friend,

Have you been trying to make money online but no luck yet or just don’t know how to start?

To get started you need a product(s) to sell but the product need not be your own.

If you want to get your internet marketing career off
the ground but have no product, here's a very easy 3
step process that'll help you do that.

Step 1 - Products

Every marketer needs a product to sell, but as we said
above you do not have one.

That's not a problem.

Since you don't have a product of your own I will show
you how to get your hands on hundreds of products that
you can use to create positive cash flow.

The first thing you need to do is visit Clickbank
( and sign up as an affiliate (it is free).

Once you're signed up you can look at the top of the page
and click on the link that says "Marketplace,".

Here you'll find an easy to use search function to help
you find products to market.

When deciding on a product in the marketplace look under
the listing and you'll see a list of numbers.

There are 2 things that you are looking for.

A.) %/sale:

This tells what percentage of the sale you're going to earn
as an affiliate.

You should never sell a product that is paying you less than
50%. Ideally you'll want to promote products that pay
65% - 75% in commission.

B.) %refd:

This value tells you the percentage of sales that come from

The higher this number is the better.

Step 2 - Advertising

You now have a product that you want to market and now we
need to get into advertising.

If you want to make money online then you need to get this
business going quickly. To do that you are going to have to
spend a little cash up front.

What you're going to do is promote your product with...

... Pay per Click advertising (PPC).

Go to Google AdWords ( and set up an

Build a list of keywords that you want to use with your
campaign. Keywords are search terms that you think potential
customers will use when searching for information in the niche
that your product serves.

Once you have your list of keywords you'll bid on them.

Basically you'll be telling AdWords how much you are willing
to pay each time your ad is clicked.

The key here is to use very targeted keywords.

If your keywords are too general then you'll get too many
useless responses.

Use laser targeted keywords not general terms.

Once your keywords are in place you need to construct your
ad. Keep your ads short and powerful.

Your ads need to inspire viewers to click it.

One word of caution...never use the word "free" in your ad.

You'll attract every freebie seeker in the world.

Step 3 - Blogging

Start a blog for free at Blogger (

Use your blog to review the products that you're going to
promote and always use your affiliate link in your posts.

Give your viewers some quality content and they'll come back.

You can further monetize your blog using Google AdSense but
that's another article for another time.

If you use this simple 3 step process you'll make money
online in no time. You need to replicate these easy steps to make money over and over again.

Just start now!

Your friend,

Email Auto Responder - How to Make Money Without a Website

One thing that prevents people from starting an Internet marketing business of their own is their fear of building a website. This is understandable because most of us do not know how to do it.

However it is possible to make a lot of money on the Internet without a website of your own. The way to do that is using an email autoresponder and building a list of your own.

1. Getting an auto responder to use is very easy to do. You can find auto responders to join as a member for under $20 a month. A couple of good ones that come to mind include Aweber and Get Response. These companies offer tutorials on how to set up your autoresponder for basic follow up.

2. Once you have your account set up you need to go through the process of adding email marketing messages to it. It's a good idea to have a series of messages prewritten that provide useful information around the theme of the product you sell. These messages are not designed to sell the product as much as they are to begin to develop credibility for yourself with your subscribers.

3. Every email autoresponder can be subscribed to in the form of an email address. One thing you can do is promote this email address online in various forms of advertising. For example you can run classified ads and list the autoresponder email address where a person can subscribe.

Another thing you can do is buy co registration leads and let them build your list for you. You just use your autoresponder for follow up and never ever have to promote anything outside of the co-registration leads you purchase.

4. One thing that is very effective is to start a free blog with On that blog you can include a subscription form to your email autoresponder.

The whole purpose of this forum is to capture contact information for future follow up by your autoresponder. You drive traffic to your blog by either writing blog articles are hiring someone to do it for you.

As your traffic increases so will the number of subscribers you get to your list. Your whole goal is to build a list of thousands of people that you can e-mail anytime you want to.

Notice at this point we still have not talked about having a website of your own. These are a few ideas on how you can use your email autoresponder to make money, even though you do not have a website of your own.

Hidden Secrets to Make Money Online, As Much US$1000 a Month

It has been almost about 14 months, since I was online doing business, and I started learning Internet Marketing from spending US$297 on this. At that time was called Accelerated Internet Wealth Series which is a 9 DVD Video series which I learned lots of nice tips from Corel Rudl, however he had since pass away since last year, I truly respect what he teaches as he is really sincere in his teachings =)
During that time my journey in Internet Marketing was seriously not a fun one, countless times I have been trying to think how do those Gurus reach to a point where they can comfortability stay at home and make a big fortune all from using their PC. Believe me when I say this as there was even one time, I was SO skeptical if I can seriously make even any decent income online.
Through my hardship and endurance, it was until I started my first Internet Marketing cheques coming in monthly which then leaked me into creating my second product here. Once I did that my income jump from 3 figures to over 5 figures and amazingly this blog you are reading also started to make more income from advertisements and reviews.

So What's My Hidden Secret That Leap Me To Where I Am Today?

It's no secret my friend! The real secret is I work very hard on doing only one thing and that isMARKETING! You may be thinking what is marketing? Very simple it means I was working really hard to bring traffic to my websites and products! I teach this countless number of times in my classes with my students and I know you cannot make a sale if you do not know how to drive traffic to your sites.

So unlike 90% of the people who fail in Internet Marketing in their first 3 months, I truly had a strong desire to succeed and that lead me into spending over 3 to 5 hours daily on my Internet Marketing business part time doing marketing almost 40% of the free time I had at work! And that was how I made this blog as popular as what it is today generating over 800 visits per day =)

So Alvin How Can I Start Making Money Online?

The basics to make money online is very simple, you drive people to a website, and if they like it they would buy it. Simply put it there are only three way to drive traffic. Buy, Steal & Attract and all these mentions are mentioned in my book here.

If you have yet to sign up for a ClickBank account, I highly recommend you do so by just clicking here. Because if you have not even register how can you sell stuff online? So please take 5 minutes and go register an account, it's free anyway and you can start promoting any product you can find in ClickBank's Marketplace.

My own product the Atomic Blogging was also listed in ClickBank and until today it's still ranked No.3 under blogging which is selling really well. If you have sign up for ClickBank already you may want to consider selling my product by registering for free here. So what I did that time basically I was master in driving traffic to my sites. If you can bring at least 100 people to my site, you will get at least a conversion of 3% to a sale. Which means out of 100 people who visit this site, 3 person will actually buy the product which in return you will make 75% commission out of the price shown there!

I knew that selling small ticket items on ClickBank was really great but what stuck me lately was this interesting concept! What if you have a opportunity to sell things online but earn commission as high as US$1,000? Would that be interesting?

Start To Sell High Ticket Items

Recently, I did some research, there are numerous number of high ticket items that are priced from a range of US$500 to as high as US$3,000 even! Furthermore, guess what for each sale you make from such sites you can make at least 50% of the price!

I noticed most of the high ticket items were either DVDs or Coaching Programs sold by Gurus online, and you will be surprised the packages and coaching programs sold online is so much cheaper than buying it from events = P

One such Guru I found online was Dan Lok's Affiliate Program here. If you actually just visit this site here, you can actually earn a commission as high as US$1,000 PER SALE! That's a huge commission if you ask me =P

Alvin Can High Ticket Items Sell?

Some marketers who have been marketing $7 to $97 products online have been very successful selling them but one shocking thing was I do have also friends who sell high ticket items, and what they told me was selling high ticket items were also as good as selling small ticket items.

However, there are a few factors to consider when choosing which item to sell. The first thing you must realize and understand is the sale process of the sales copy and also if the sales copy on the page has a high conversion ratio. According to his website, he did state on one of his high ticket items is converting at 0.25 which means I need at least 4,000 hits to his website in order to generate one sale for him which I can make US$1,000. If you ask me the fastest way to get 4,000 hit, if you are smart just use PPC or Article Marketing you can that 4,000 in no time with lots of marketing =)

Blogs and Adsense-How To Make Money

If you like to blog and you would like to make money from your blog, then consider utilizing Adsense.

Google Adsense requires pasting code on your blog page that will generate advertisements. When you have done this, relevant ads related to your blog content will show up on your page. For example, if your blog is about 'pet care', then all the ads that appear on your site from Adsense, will be about 'pet care'. Pretty neat, isn't it?

Adsense-How does it work?

To keep it elementary, you get paid every time someone clicks on one of your advertisements. That's it. If a visitor comes to your site, hopefully one of your ads will fascinate their eye, and clink on the link. Every time somebody does this, you make money.

How to get traffic to your Blog/Adsense site

There's a number of techniques to get traffic to your blog. You can utilize any one of these ideas, but I recommend that you employ all of them for success.

(1) Publish unique and instructive articles for your blog.

(2) Publish on a regular basis.

How often ought you publish? That's up to you. Just make certain it's consistent. If it is once a week, then make certain you publish once a week. I personally like to publish once a week because this permits me to take my time to compose an effective article. Occasionally, I'll write two or more articles and then set up my blog to publish my articles a week apart. I utilize this method when I have great ideas. It helps me not to have burn out too. If you prefer to publish more frequently, you can, but just remember to be consistent.

(3) Rewrite the articles that you've published and submit them to article directories, such as or

This is another reason why I publish only once a week. Once I've written my master article, I'll then rewrite it so I can submit it to one of the article directories. I only pick out one directory since I do not want to submit duplicate content to the web. Nevertheless, if somebody uses your article, it will be duplicated anyways, go figure. You could rewrite the article a 3rd time, if you have the time, or you can utilize any of the tools on the web that will rewrite it for you. I have not discovered one that works well for me, so I just do it by hand. 'WordFlood', is a fine free tool to use to help you rewrite your articles. It highlights every word and when you hover over a word it will show you a listing of associated words. You are able to then scroll down and pick a different word to substitute the master. It's a pretty cool tool.

But the rationality for you rewriting your articles and submitting them to directories is to acquire backlinks to your blog. In the author's bio box, I'll build a link back to my primary site, then I'll make a link in my 1st and concluding paragraph. I have the links in my first and final paragraphs point directly to the article I just published on my blog. I'll anchor the links with my top keywords for that article. For example, if I published an article about 'fleas' on my 'pet care' site, I might link the phrase, 'how to get rid of fleas', someplace in my 1st paragraph, then I may link the phrase, 'flea control', in my concluding paragraph. The intention of this process is to show the search engines what top keywords you would like to employ to point to the article on your blog.

(4) If you're using Firefox, add the plug in called 'Searchstatus'. This plug in permits you to see the pageranks and the Alexa ratings for whatever site you visit. Additionally, it has the function of highlighting the sites that are dofollow sites. These sites, whenever you make a comment on them, creates a link back to your site. The majority of sites are not dofollow but nofollow, so this cool plug in helps you to not waste your time commenting all over, hoping for a backlink. Make about 3 to 5 comments on sites that have got good pagerank and related content to your blog, and eventually, you'll get indexed by the SEs and you'll begin bringing hits to your blog.

As your blog gets visible to the SEs, a lot of traffic will come to your blog. And if you have Google Adsense set up on your blog displaying relevent advertisements, you visitors could click on them and you might be on your way to making money online.

Email Marketing Secrets - How to Make All the Money You Want With Email Marketing

Email marketing is my main method of driving in profits on the Internet - a lot of profits! Sure, I use article marketing to get the initial traffic, I have squeeze pages and I have sales pages. I do joint ventures. But at the heart of the money making process are email promotions.

I automate a variety of traffic sources on the Internet towards my squeeze pages, then I have a follow-up system that drives subscribers towards my sales pages and towards my affiliate links. The whole system is designed to educate as well as make money. The fuel for the system is traffic, but the system itself, the machine, it is email marketing.

With every email I send, depending on the subject line, the body copy and the quality of the offer, I can get 2,000+ visitors or more to my sales pages and my affiliate links. On a 'poor' day, I easily top the 1,000+ unique hits mark. If I can convert just 2 out of 100 visitors for 2,000 unique visitors, that's 40 sales. And if my conversion rate doubles at 4, that's 80 sales! If I'm promoting a $50 product, that's an instant windfall of over $2,000. And I regularly achieve this.

There are generally two kinds of offers you can promote with emails - your own products or affiliate products. I like to promote cost-per-action offers in non Internet marketing niches because the customer doesn't have to buy anything; he just has to fill up a form and I get paid very handsomely sometimes. Very profitable indeed!

The Most Effective Ways to Attract Traffic to Your Website

If you are new to Internet Marketing or Affiliate Marketing you may be wondering why you aren't making any sales. The main reason is probably because you aren't getting enough traffic to your site.

By traffic I mean visitors and without those visitors you aren't going to make any sales at all. So how can you increase your traffic?
First of all you have to make sure you have chosen your keywords wisely and submitted your site to all the major search engines.

Once you have done that you can concentrate on getting more backlinks to your site. A backlink is a link to your website from another site. The best kind of backlink to have is one that has your keywords in the anchor text.

You can get backlinks by submitting your site to link directories, many of which are free, and by writing articles and submitting them to article directories. Another great way to get backlinks is by Social Networking. Be careful here and make sure you are allowed to submit your own site as some of them don't allow it.

You should also create a blog and post on it as often as possible, making sure you have a link of your main site on it and include your keywords in a signature link at the end of each post. Also comment on other peoples blogs and make sure you include a link to your site.

Another great way of getting traffic is by creating a lead capture page that offers something free like information or ebooks. Everyone likes something for free. This will also capture subscribers for you to any newsletter that you may have created in your autoresponder. Put this on your blog and again include a link to your site.

Forums are another great way of getting traffic to your site, make sure you read the forum rules carefully first, many of them will allow you to include a link to your website in your signature.
By doing all of the above you will be well on your way to getting a lot more traffic to your site. Which has got to be good for any business.

By writing and submitting articles on a regular basis, you will be able to dramatically increase your traffic and therefore develop your list.

What do you need to do to start generating traffic today?
1 - Focus on article creation. If you would like to generate 5 articles today, I would suggest you put pen to paper and create 5 article titles that you could use with your keywords. These titles should be enticing and should encourage the reader to click on to your article to obtain further information.

2 - Check your keywords. By now, you should have a list of prominent keywords that you are going to use in your niche. Double check your keywords by typing them into your browser and checking what other website owners are saying about your niche. What up-to-date information can you find? What new slants are others talking about? Take note of the experts that appear to know what they're talking about.

3 - Begin writing your article. Your article should be between 350 and 450 words in length. You need to write some quality information. Your content should tell the reader what to do next and give them some information that is brand new and easy to use. It is very important that you yourself keep up to date with what is new in your niche so that when you come to write your articles, it give valuable information. Read books in your particular niche as well as newspapers, articles and newsletters.

4 - Once you have completed your article, proofread it for grammatical or spelling errors. Make sure that your writing is easy and friendly to read. When you are happy with the content of your article, you are ready to submit it.

5 - Submit your article to reputable article directories. There are article directories online that are close to useless that will produce absolutely no traffic whatsoever, and therefore it is very important that you choose your article directories with care. One of the most popular article directories is EzineArticles. Submit your articles online, and then prepare a new list for tomorrow.

Email Marketing - 5 Profitable Tips to Create an Email Money Machine

Email marketing does get a little confusing for new marketers and even seasoned marketers sometimes. There are so many crucial elements to building a profitable list that one can get lost easily. Here are 5 profitable tips to create an email money machine in no time flat:

1. Only Work For Targeted Traffic

Don't waste time on traffic generation sources such as traffic exchanges or FFA sites. These don't work at all, period! You should spend your marketing time on targeted traffic sources like article marketing, forum marketing, pay per click advertising etc.

2. Send Unique Free Content

Your subscribers signed up for your list expecting to get free content. So you've got to give it to them! Write your own unique articles or create your own free reports and send it out to your subscribers.

3. Write Killer Subject Lines

The key to getting more opens is by writing compelling subject lines that trigger the clicks! If you want more of your emails to be opened and read, study the subject lines of successful marketers and emulate their style of writing.

4. Always Call-To-Action

Always, always include a call-to-action at the end of your emails to get the action you want - whether it's to buy a product, register for a membership site or download a free report. If you want your subscribers to act, you've got to tell them to do so!

5. Promote Relevant Offers To Your Subscribers

It goes without saying that you have to promote relevant offers to your list. If your subscribers signed up for dog grooming tips, don't suddenly send them weight loss information! Although some subscribers may appreciate it, many won't. So always keep things relevant to the theme of your list.

How to Create a Million Dollar Email Business

There are a number of ways to create a million dollar online business. But one of the common techniques is through email marketing. It is also one of the easiest ways to market your product or service. And the job is made almost effortless if you use the services of an autoresponder. But, to maximize your potential and create a million dollar email business, you need to follow certain steps.

First of all, you need a list. This goes without saying, otherwise, who would you send your emails to? If you do not have a list, you can build one through the use of a squeeze page. A squeeze page is designed to entice visitors to enter their name and email address. The most effective squeeze pages offer some type of free ecourse or report to encourage visitors to sign up.

The second thing you need is a good autoresponder. An autoresponder automates the entire process. So, instead of entering individual messages to each member of your list, you enter the message once and your autoresponder will send it out to everyone automatically. Email marketing would be impossible without an autoresponder.

It is also important that you design an enticing subject line for your emails. The subject line is the only advertising that your message will get. If you have a dull uninteresting subject line, few people will open your message. On the other hand, an exciting tantalizing subject will be opened by almost everyone. Spend some time developing a good subject line.

Spam filters are becoming more and more sophisticated. They look for certain trigger words and send any emails that include them into a bulk or junk mail folder. When this happens, fewer and fewer emails reach their intended audience. To prevent this from happening to you, you can use software to ensure your messages get through those aggressive spam filters.

And last but not least is your message. Don't hammer your subscribers with hard sell techniques. Provide good factual information on the product that you are promoting and list the ways that it will benefit them. Messages that include a long list of benefits convert better than messages listing just one or two.

By following these tips, you too can create a million dollar email business. Looking for inexpensive software to get your email through those spam filters? Check out the information below.

The 3 Types of Website Traffic

Where does traffic come from? Now I’m not talking about that stuff we all get stuck in during rush hour. Website traffic is essential, if you have no traffic to your website you are not going to get anyone buying your products or reading your articles. Traffic is one of the key components of your website and is available in these three forms.
1. Pay For It.
You can buy traffic typically using what is known as Pay Per Click advertising. The major names in this market are Google and their AdWords program and Yahoo Network Sponsored Search. There are many smaller companies around also but they all follow the same premise.
You create your account, grab a bunch of keywords and create your adverts. You can define the amount you want to spend per click or per day, what geographical areas you want your adverts to appear in and even what time they should appear.
When someone types one of your keywords into for example Google your advert will be displayed down the right hand side of the natural search results. If the searcher then chooses to click on your advert and gets forwarded to your website you will get charged for that click.
The price you pay for each individual click depends on a variety of conditions such as how many other people are competing on that keyword. The more competition the more it costs to be higher up the ranks. The position you want to occupy. The percentage of people who click on your advert, the list goes on.
Pay Per Click advertising can be very successful but has a steep learning curve, it is essential that you do lots of research into your chosen Pay Per Click vender and in the niche you are in.

2. Borrow It.
This option is not for everyone, but in certain niches it can be effective. The first method of borrowing traffic is what is called link exchange. This is where you put links to another website on your site and they put links back to you on theirs. This can be beneficial as you can get traffic from a more successful website reasonably quickly. However this traffic is not always targeted.
The second option in the affiliate marketing world is called a joint venture or a JP. This is essentially where you would contact another marketer or company who had products that complements yours. If they are interested they may send a mailing out to their list or put an entry in their blog alerting their visitors about you and your relevant products.
The key things to remember about borrowing traffic is that you have to give something in return. This can make it tricky when targeting very successful websites.

3. Create It.
Creating your own traffic is one of the best ways to start bringing people into your website. There are literally hundreds of ways to start creating your traffic but I’m just going to tell you about two of the most popular.

Articles are a great way of generating traffic. You can write your articles about your chosen niche, offering advice, definitions, explanations, news, reviews just to name a few. Once you have created your articles you can put them on your website or blog as content. You can also upload them to article directories or even assemble a few of them into a white paper or ebook to give away to visitors.
Video is currently the big thing on the internet world. Everywhere you look there are videos for everything. 50% of all web traffic is video and YouTube alone receives 12.5% of all the traffic out there. YouTube has made it possible for anyone to upload their videos for the whole world to see. Just as you can create an article about anything you can do the same thing with video. The best option is to do both: Create it in print and create it in video.
I wish you all the best of success.

How to Sell Domain Names for Stupendous Cash!

Dear friends,

Sorry, for the long absence on this page. It has been an hectic time this past few days, due to the fact we have a new addition to our family, a beautiful bouncy baby boy named AbdulRahman. So i have been busy doing the responsible father and a lovely husband.

However, as a compensation, i'm bringing you this beautiful article from one of my teachers and a mentor. It is on Making money selling Domain Names, please enjoy it;

Selling domain names can be quite profitable for webmasters. This is particularly the case if the webmaster sells a domain name that has an existing line of traffic. In these situations domain names can generate thousands of dollars for their webmasters. There have even been domain name names that allowed webmasters to collect millions in profit. With a little bit of basic knowledge, you can emulate such success for yourself. This article will provide that information through an easy to follow step-by-step guide.

First, you will need to find a search engine keyword that is highly searched yet not used much by other websites. You can do this by using a keyword analyzer. The best keyword analyzers are those that you pay for, such as Word Tracker or Keyword Analyzer. The reason why these are preferable over free ones is because they let you know how much competition you are facing with a potential keyword. Free ones only tell you how much the keyword has been searched. If money is a problem, try to get a paid keyword analyzer that is offering a free sample, such as WordTracker. You can upgrade to the paid version once you return profit from the sale of your domain name.

With your keyword chosen, you will need to get a domain name and web hosting. Why do you need web hosting if you’re going to sell just the domain name? It’s because you’re going to need a website to drive traffic to that domain name. Without a website visitors won’t want to return to whatever domain name you selected. This lessens the main element that gives a domain name profitability: traffic.

Anyway, try to get a package that will include both web hosting and a domain name at the same time, since you won’t have to worry about transferring anything later. When you choose your domain name, make sure you include your selected keyword in its phrasing. If you find that your selected keyword is taken as a domain name, try making alterations like saying “a1″, “123″ or “101.” For example, say the keyword “Careers” is taken as a domain name. You could say “A1 Careers,” “Careers 123″ or “Careers 101.” Alternatively, you could try searching for a related keyword that isn’t taken as a domain name. Either way, keep trying until you get a memorable yet keyword-rich domain name that still has a .com extension.

Now, you will need to create a website for your domain name. It doesn’t have to be big… even a one-pager could do the trick, if you don’t mind a website so simple. Write an article related to the keyword you chose and create a simple site using Microsoft Word, (make sure you save the document as an .HTML file). Sign up for Adsense and/or an affiliate program, so you can offer additional resources for your visitors. You will also earn a commission if a sale is made or a clickthrough generated, (depending on the program you joined).

Once your website is uploaded, you need to focus on traffic-building. You can get an initial boost by buying traffic, though make sure the company you buy your traffic from uses expired domain names rather than bots or even incentive traffic, (such as paid emails).

But even after this you will need to try to build up inbound links. These are websites that link to you. Post your site on any free site, such as directories, message boards or online classified ads. Also, make sure you submit articles to free article directories. Additionally, try to initiate link exchanges. You can do this by emailing the webmaster or finding link exchange networks such as Link Market.

Keep building up your links until you get a steady stream of traffic. If you get enough traffic, you will get an Alexa rating. If the rating is pleasing, find a domain name appraiser and see how much your domain name can go for. This will give you some idea of how much you can realistically get, but don’t get discouraged if the number seems low. Why? It’s because some people will care more about the traffic your domain name is receiving over the supposed SEO elements of it.

Either way, when you feel you are ready put your domain name up for auction. You may even want to include your original website, though this is optional. When the domain name sells, you will need to transfer it over to the new webmaster’s account… your web hosting company can help you with this.

With your profit you may want to consider doing the venture again with an expired domain name. This will get you a traffic boost without having to go through the actual process of traffic-building, (if you decide you don’t want to do that).
