SEO (search engine optimization) is actually pretty simple.
It mainly comes down to two things: on page SEO and off page SEO.
On page SEO just means optimizing your content to rank for certain keywords.
The main elements on the page you want to make sure and include your target keywords are your Title and URL.
As far as the body itself don't worry so much about using the exact phrases you're going after word for word...
The other half of the SEO equation is off page SEO.
This just means backlinks or links from other high authority or relevant sites pointing to the piece of content you're trying to rank.
Off page SEO is also pretty simple - it mostly comes down to...
Remember the old adage "you get what you pay for"?
Well, that statement is true with solo ads as well...
Unless you do what's known as a solo ad swap, which is where you mail for someone in exchange for them mailing for you...
So that each of you can help build each other's lists without having to actually pay for clicks.
One of the most popular sites and services for solo ads swaps is Safe Swaps.
However, obviously before you are able to do a solo ad swap you will need your own email list.
And one of the fastest, simplest ways to build your email list from scratch is by investing in solo ads.
To help save you some time in trying to figure out which solo ad vendor or service is the best, I recommend starting with a site called Udimi.
Udimi is the largest marketplace for solo ads vendors and is a fast, affordable and safe solution for growing your email list on autopilot.
Once you build up a solid list of at least a few thousand subscribers then you can start doing swaps on a regular...
Honestly there really isn't an "average" salary for affiliate marketers because there's so many different skill levels when it comes to online marketing.
Most people that call themselves affiliate marketers have probably made less than $100...
While on the high end others make six or even seven figures every year.
However, the magic number that I've found most people are aiming to hit when they first dive into the world on affiliate marketing is about $100-$200/day.
Sure, everybody likes the idea of driving Lambos and Ferraris and partying on private jets and expensive yachts...
But the reason why, for most people, $100-$200/day is all they need is that it's all that's standing in between them and having to be at their dreaded 9 to 5 job for 40+ hours every week.
The great news is that $100-$200/day is really not that hard to achieve, even if you're just getting started and know nothing about making money on the Internet.
Now, there are a lot of different methods and strategies for...
Solo ads are a very popular method of driving traffic.
Mostly because they're fast, easy, and newbie-friendly.
The downside is that the lower the barrier to entry the more likely you are of getting screwed and taken advantage of.
Unfortunately, since a lot of people who invest in solo ads are brand new marketers they don't even know that they might be getting taken advantage of or how to even figure out if they are.
Which is why I don't just like to blindly recommend resources without testing them myself.
So, if you're considering investing in solo ads or you've maybe tried solo ads in the past and are looking for a reputable solution to help you scale...
Then I recommend Trafficforme.
A couple of reasons I really like Trafficforme are...
Kindle Direct Publishing launched is 2010 (nearly a decade ago at the time of me writing this post).
And why that date is so ridiculous to me is that it's still ridiculously simple to make money selling Kindle ebooks...
Yet, I guess most people on the planet simply don't know that.
A few years after the Kindle Marketplace launched I mustered up the courage to publish my first title.
And within a few short weeks I had already made over $100 - off of a $1.99 ebook!
Now, unfortunately I didn't stick with it.
But a friend of mine did.
He started around the exact same time as me in the fall of 2012 and in about 3-4 months he had scaled his Kindle income to over $10,000/month!
And the even crazier thing was that he had developed a system that was for the most part completely automated.
The only "work" he did was logging into his account to see how much money he was making.
I know that sounds like a fairytale - but he's not the only one.
And Kindle is still a MASSIVE...
Affiliate marketing is actually pretty darn simple.
It basically just comes down to getting the right offer in front of the right target audience.
And if you do it right, you don't even necessarily need to be great at driving traffic, copywriting or conversions.
So, what are the main elements of affiliate marketing?
1) Select an offer
I suggest starting with an affiliate network rather than a site that has a private affiliate program.
This is better when you're just starting out since most affiliate networks and programs have a minimum payment threshold before they'll pay you out. That number is usually around $100.
So, since you're a beginner you might make a sale, but your commission might only be $10.
With a private affiliate program you would have to wait longer to get paid out, but...
There's so many different ways to make money online, but here are a list of just a couple that are all really simple and inexpensive to start, which each has the potential to generate you enough passive income to live a very comfortable lifestyle.
Start A Blog
I know it might sound hard, slow, and boring, but it doesn't have to be.
Pick something you know a lot about and are passionate about already.
Then you can use a free tool like KeywordTool.io to get ideas and suggestions for topics to write about and over time you'll start to attract organic traffic from the search engines.
Once you get traffic making money is easy.
Sign up for affiliate networks and mention relevant products and services in your blog articles or add banners the sidebar of your site and eventually you'll start making money from creating content about...
One of the most popular niches for solo ads is the biz opp and make money online space.
But that's not the only big niche out there.
The top 3 super niches are: health, wealth, and relationships
So, there's definitely a LOT of money to be made outside of the make money online industry.
And solo ads for these other niches work the same way as they do with buying clicks for a biz opp offer.
The issue is where do you find a quality solo ad vendor for some of these other niches?
Well, the one that I like to use is called Trafficforme.
The reason I like Trafficforme is
So, if you have...
Everybody likes the idea of making passive income in their pajamas on the Internet until they learn that there's a flip side to all those fancy cars, jewels, and mansions.
You actually gotta put in the work to be able to afford all that stuff.
Sure, the freedom is amazing, but working for yourself online does have it's share of disadvantages that a lot of people just starting out probably forget to factor in.
This is a big one that you'll figure out pretty soon once you start working for yourself.
It's cool being able to print digital money everyday, but when you're a solopreneur it can get pretty lonely cooped up in your apartment or house all day with no one to talk to.
But a simple solution for this is to look into coworking spaces like WeWork, that give you the opportunity to be around other like-minded entrepreneurs so you don't turn into an introverted hermit.
When you work for yourself you've got no one looking over your shoulder or telling you what...
It doesn't matter what product or service you're promoting with solo ads, the process is the same.
You'll send traffic to an optin page, capture an email address, and then follow up with that person until they either buy or unsubscribe.
So, let's walk through doing this for a Clickbank product.
First, you'll want to select a product to promote.
I would choose a mass market product that is already converting well (has a high Gravity score within the Clickbank marketplace) and also has some prewritten email swipes you can use for your autoresponder followup sequence.
Tools you will need...
Once you have your offer you'll create a custom landing page with a drag-and-drop software like ClickFunnels.
Plug in your followup sequence emails into your autoresponder.
Mask your landing page URL with a click tracking software like ClickMagick (to protect you so you don't get cheated by the solo ad vendor).
And then you'll invest in your solo ad clicks.
After the solo ad has completed you'll...
