Earn $2 Over and Over Again with Affiliate Marketing + Easy Converting Offers


Today I’m gonna show you how to make $2 on the Internet.

Learn to make 2 BUCKS ALL DAY EVERY DAY even when I’m sleeping!

Hey guys it’s Marcus here and welcome back!

Today I’m going to show you how to make $2 all day every day.

That’s like $50 a day.

If you did that twice an hour that’s like $100 a day.

If you did that like, times an hour, that’s just one every minute, that’s like a lot of money!

If you like this kind of stuff and you want to learn how to make money with affiliate marketing, HIT THAT SUBSCRIBE BUTTON and the little bell notification icon.

That way you get the latest videos that I come out with when I release them and you can join our live trainings every Wednesday at 10 am!

Let’s dive right in and talk about how you can make your 2 bucks!

First of all, let’s go over to a little site called OFFER VAULT.

Offer Vault is like a search engine for affiliate offers.

Here I could see all the offers that the affiliate networks have which is pretty cool!

I could see here there’s an Android one which pays 72 cents.

Here’s some kind of fitness one that pays $2.80 and on and on we go.

You can see there’s over 64, 000 different affiliate offers which is crazy!

There’s got to be a way for you to make $2 in here somewhere.

Now what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go through and we’re gonna isolate this and try to find offers that pay in the $2 range.

Why choose an offer that pays only $2?

How does that make any sense?

Why wouldn’t I choose an offer that pays a thousand dollars?

What we’re doing is we’re looking for something with a low barrier of entry.

Something that’s REALLY EASY TO CONVERT.

Something that like takes NOTHING ON THE CONSUMER END


I want to see some examples on how this really works to make a living on the Internet.

Let’s go through that and I’ll show you some examples of how this works.

Here’s a screenshot from one of my affiliate accounts.

You could see that it’s adding up really, really quickly.

We’re making a lot of money here giving away these little things and doing this little stuff with low barrier of entry.

Here’s another one over here where you could see the actual offers.

Here’s another one. I did on my tattoo site now on the tattoo site.

I actually had a zip submit offer and an email submit offer and then I give them different downloads for toolbar and then I offered the option for them to download printable tattoo designs from an affiliate company that I was affiliated with and they paid like 20 or 30% per download.

The tattoos cost like nine dollars. My average earnings were like I think 3 to 7 dollars per tattoo that they downloaded. You can see that added up to over $8000, in addition to the hundred thousand I made on the email zip submit offers.

Here’s another little one I tested out recently that is doing like 295 per download and we got a 6% conversion on that. Not a whole lot of money but we’re just testing it out.

A lot of people ask me “Why download this stuff? Why download toolbars if you can get all the stuff on the internet free anyway? 

Well just to give you an example this is a CNET screenshot of some of the downloads for just like in one-week period.

You could see like a million people downloaded an anti-virus.

Some people downloaded other stuff and on and on we go.

Lots of stuff being downloaded and if you were only making like $2 on like a tenth of a tenth of a tenth of a percent of all those downloads, you’d still be making pretty good money!

We can do this several ways.

One we can look up email submit.

An email submit offer is where I get paid when someone puts their email address in a box.


We got to scroll past all these sponsored listings because they’re not that targeted.

We’re gonna scroll past this and we’re gonna go to the ones around the $2 range.

So if we can get to the $2 range, we’re just gonna keep skipping back here.

I got my affiliate dude hat and if you want affiliate dude shirts and stuff like that check us out and our new Marcus Mentor Program at Marcusmentor.me. We’ll give you a free shirt in that program!

Here in the $2 range, you’re gonna notice that you’re gonna see stuff like this, “Start a career today at Mcdonald’s US” submit.

Email submit basically means that they put their email in the box you get paid.

Let’s take a look at this; Samples and Savings, One for the Bath and Body works.

Look at the landing page preview and all they have to do for you to get $2.40 is put their email in the box and hit choose samples.

Literally that’s it! All they have to do is put a good email in and you get paid which is cool!

That’s why I like these kind of offers.

Email submit is one of the types of offers you can do. You can see there’s tons of them like Amazon giftcard flight voucher.

You have to do your research and make sure they’re legitimate good offers which I’ll show you how to do in a different video but for the most part a lot of them are pretty good.

So we have offers like opinion, we have offers for like let’ see here Walmart gift card, so like this one here the Walmart gift card. It’s like hey check this out, here’s how to get $1000, Walmart gift card or whatever and I think just go through offers.

It’s like an incentive type of deal which is cool but we get paid just when they put their email in the box.

  • There’s other ones if you want to make it even easier which is called zip submit.

 These are the ones where you get paid when they just put their zip code in a box and hit go. They’re not even putting like email or anything it’s just a zip code in the box and you get paid.

To see how this works, it’s basically just like the email submit but it’s for a zip code so let’s see if we can get back here to the ones that are like 2 bucks. The ones that are expensive are more than a zip submit. That’s why they’re paying a lot okay and this is what we’re getting paid.

So on this one if I got this person to do the action I would get 4 dollars and 50 cents.

Here okay gift card let’s see if this is a zip submit, first page submit let’s see if it’s a zip code. “Do they shop at Walmart?” okay so you got to do that stuff and then email address.

Usually the zip submit ones are little bit less of a payout because they’re not actually getting the email address which obviously is valuable to a marketer so we’ll keep going here.

Here’s one some kind of dish hopper thing. This is like from the DISH Network which is kind of cool. So DISH is saying that they will pay, what is it? They’re gonna pay 2 dollars for someone to put their zip code in.

So on that one satellite someone puts their zip code in, let’s do 90210 Beverly Hills.

There we go, I just got two dollars!

If that was through my affiliate link I would have just gotten two dollars for that customer doing it.

So you could see that the barrier of entry is really low.

Let’s see if this diapers one has it. That looks like an email as well which email ones are good too. I’ve made a lot of money with the email ones so as you can see there’s tons and tons of offers for this type of stuff really good.

Now let’s get into my favorite category.

They’ve got the email submits, we got the zip submits

and my favorite category is toolbars.

Toolbars are awesome because you can get someone to download a toolbar or an extension on their computer and you get paid.

If you were to use my affiliate marketing dude extension over at affiliatemarketingdude.com, that’s a little toolbar here that I have that helps you look for these things.

So if you want to look for offers, I could just go in and put toolbar or Chrome add-on and it’s gonna do all the searching for you. It’ll find the offers and it makes it super easy so boom you just click offer vault.

You can also see the value in that toolbar. How cool it is and how easy it is to get someone download it. It’s like “hey you want to make money online go to affiliatemarketingdude.com get the toolbar.

You’re gonna get the power search.

You’re gonna get the members stuff.

You’re gonna get my latest videos.


So obviously watching this video you probably want that but wait till the end to go to affiliatemarketingdude.com and get your copy of it. It is free and the reason I give it away free is because I know that the average person who uses it really enjoys my stuff and eventually ends up signing up for something and paying money for course or whatever it is so it works really well and that’s the same exact reasoning behind these offers.

The Dish Network knows that if you put your zip code in and click one of those icons you’re probably more interested in than someone just searching the web. You actually took an action very cool!

I know that if someone downloads my toolbar they’re more interested than someone just watching a video or something so I would pay people to download my toolbar and you know you’d give it away it’d make you money which is cool.

  • So you could see here if we do like Chrome you can go down and they’re usually in like the $3 range or whatnot so we go here and we’re gonna look for them.

So right here we have like bringing me sports which is really cool. I had a student of mine and he was making a killing with the bring me Sports toolbar I did at live training here on my channel a couple years ago where we did like the football games and we brought the bring me Sports toolbar in there and we made good money with it.

We actually made it live on that video.

So you could see here this one pays $2.45 for Internet Explorer;

$2.45 for Firefox and all they have to do is go there and download it.

So this one’s for Internet Explorer so if we want to preview it like watch live soccer or whatnot so it’s got that there.

We’ll try this in Internet Explorer see what it looks like. Here’s the one for firefox and then there should be a chrome one as well. Here’s a chrome one for Adobe Chrome flash one.

Here’s one for flights.

If people want to search flights, this is really cool because like just yesterday I was buying a flight to a video conference I’m going to and my wife was looking at flights and I was looking up flights and we couldn’t find a direct flight and it was a pain in the butt had we had this toolbar right it’s got flight information and they just download it for Chrome and you could see what it looks like.

When they add it they’re gonna add the extension and it’s gonna add right here just like my little toolbar and then we’re gonna go through and boom there we go!

So now I could go through and look up the flight stuff pretty cool. It’s like hey fine flights, flight updates, flight search. It’s really cool because it’s valuable to the user and I get paid. I think on that one it’s like $2.40 when they add it to their Chrome and it’s free!

So we got that there. We got bring me Sports for Mac Chrome. We got anti-virus, flights, movies. If they want to watch movies on their computer there’s a lot of one.

The lottery one is back ladies and gentlemen which is great news because we got to run that one. This is one that I went through and I built a site that local lotto site. It’s a simple site.

Here’s what it looked like back in 2013, 2014.

 Now the offer went away for a little bit but you could bet I’m gonna run this again because it’s a great offer I think this one we actually set up live on a webinar back in 2012 and we watch live as I built the site I got the domain. I built the site we did it live and the same day I put it up we had made like 1200 or 1600 dollars in commissions on this one. Just giving away little lottery tool bars where I got paid like two bucks or something like that.

It was crazy and it went on for a long time but the offer got cancelled and it’s back now so I’m gonna run it again and make even more money!

You could see the site’s really simple. This thing took me like minutes to build!

Super crazy, super easy!

Seeing that one totally excites me we’ve got a movie goat. To watch movies we got maps, utility tools shopping, 365 stream video game searchers PDFs I mean come on there’s tons of cool stuff that you can use!

Now in my course and my free tool bar I teach you how to run these offers and make lots of money with them because if you don’t do it the right way your conversions gonna be low. There’s the weather one I’ve made lots with that one tons and tons. I mean come on there’s lots of stuff so if you want to make $2 all day every day with lots of cool offers this is the way to go!

CPA Affiliate Marketing Simple Blog Makes $69.88 in One Day

Hey guys it’s Marcus here with a little update!

I just want to refresh this for you and show you since we submitted our ad about a little less than a half hour ago. It did go live just a couple minutes ago on Bing and in those couple of minutes.

Watch what happens here.

We’re just going to reload this page and show you how much it makes and let’s just keep this thing going.


So there you go! We got 12 bucks in revenue in just a couple of minutes!

We’re going to watch this throughout the day and check it out!

  • We’ll show you what’s going on.
  • We’ll show you how much it’s making.
  • We’ll also show you how much we’re spending.

Hey guys! Here we are again about 38 minutes after the ad went live.

You can see that we are now at $25.88.

It looks like we got 6 downloads for United States ones and 1 download for Canada.

I’ll keep you updated and we’ll follow along the site to show you how much money it’s making throughout the day.


Okay guys here we are 10 minutes later.

I wanted to give you a little update because I wanted to show you something really cool!

So right now, we’re gonna go to sort because right now the Niners are going to be playing in about 40 minutes and right now we have the Raiders playing so we can just drag them up here.

For people who want to watch the Raiders we just go ahead and drag them up there, hit update.

Now on our site, we will go to football games online, will reload it.

I know Chrome’s kind of weird but we’ll have the Raiders move up and these guys here are playing so you can kind of drag them around and play with them there and see which one gets clicked on most and you could see through the manage tab. 

Let’s go ahead and click the manage tab there!

Here we have:  215 IMPRESSIONS, 67 CLICKS, and you can see who’s getting the most clicks! You could track it like right now the Dolphins have 8, the Saints have 8, Steelers 6, Seahawks and on and on we go. You can monitor this live and make even more money by just keeping on track of what people are doing and everything like that.

So we’ll come back with an update! Check on the money and check on how much we’re actually spending to get this because we want to be transparent with you and show you that here we are 13 years after starting this business and the stuff still works live so you could see it working. Here we are back with you.

The site slowed a little bit. We had a little bit of delay in our affiliate reporting. I was expecting a little bit more income on this one but I’ll show you why it was a little bit less but still nevertheless here we are at close to five o’clock.

We set this site up I think at noon or 12:30 I think it went live. Just about five hours or so something like that.

You can see here on our stats, let’s go ahead and go to reporting, and this is an account that I use just for this stuff here.

We can see we’re at $69.88 on this particular offer.  And if we go to MSN ad center we can see that for this particular one we paid $36 to get it. Not too bad.

If we do 69.88- 36.68, we have a NET PROFIT OF 33 BUCKS.  Not too bad.

 I mean if this keeps up all the time, which I know we can improve on it, THAT’S A THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH INCOME  which isn’t bad and that’s for five hours. So obviously tomorrow we’re gonna do probably more than that.

I want you to take a look at your stats because YOUR STATS ARE WHERE THE GOLD IS.

So we could see 161 clicks. We can see the impressions are 17,000 so all we got to do is INCREASE THE NUMBER OF CLICKS. We’re paying 23 cents a click which isn’t bad and we can see here all the keywords that are getting us traffic.

What you want to look at is what’s getting traffic.

  • So NFLis our King.
  • We could see that our average position is 1.84.
  • So like if I took this NFL word and I was to change my ad around, that would work better.
  • You can see everything else pretty much drops off there but the NFL one is big.

Now if you go to our grid tracker you can see that our impressions on the ad, once this thing refreshes, IMPRESSIONS ON THE AD ARE 410. Now you’ll notice 410 is a lot bigger number than we have on this one, we have like less than 200 clicks, 161 clicks here which means that basically more people were clicking on our ads here.  More people would come to this page than actually click.

I want you to look at this number specifically because we have 132 people who clicked the offer.  Because they’re clicking the grid, they’re clicking the offer and you can see in our never blue stats 220 clicks, so we’re getting a great great great wonderful amount of people clicking the ads.

That’s what this grid tracker does, it gets people to click because most people would see 220 or most people would see the 161 clicks to the site but then their site would see maybe 50 clicks go to the offer.

If we only had 50 clicks to the offer at 31 cents a click we would be losing money and we wouldn’t be making money.

Very important. So you want to look at that.

What we’re gonna do in our next video is we are going to take a look at these, see where the impressions are coming from, like Steelers is definitely one we can use you know NFL we can we can improve on this make it its own ad group different things like that.

  • So we want to improve on this.
  • We want to make it better.
  • The key is get more traffic and then make that traffic convert.

If we get more traffic like if I double my traffic, tomorrow I have doubled my earnings!

Now if I double my earnings on the offer, like if I double my conversion, now I’ve quadrupled the money I made!


Alright so have fun with this!

I’m going to keep you updated on this site

and if you’re interested in bootcamp, hit me up on live chat.

Get in that guys.


I just talked to my buddy Jim who is our bootcamp junkie. He’s in every bootcamp and he made like 300 bucks or 270 bucks on his sports site today and his was all free traffic.


So check it out!

We’ll have some videos from him obviously those stats are not typical of what everyone gets but my students get results so if you want results become one of my students,

go to simplesitesbootcamp.com. 

Check out the rest of these videos and I’ll see you on the inside!



Clickbank WordPress Plugin for Affiliate Links – How to Put Clickbank Links On Your Blog

Hey, guys its Marcus!


We are going to talk about how to put Clickbank ads on your WordPress blog. There are four main ways to add Clickbank links to your blog.

Now this links to our Clickbank link. That’s a very good way to do it because in content ads get a lot more clicks than just regular ads.

You can see now that it looks like a normal banner.

Another thing you can do is actually use the vendor username and it’ll show you no ads from that vendor.

We’re going to choose our size



If you’re using a sidebar, you definitely want to use a long one maybe like a 120 x 600 or 200 x 600, if you’re using in content ads, we’re going to use a large rectangle.




When you use AdSense and use Clickbank hop feeds you get no data from your visitor. The most important thing you can do online is learn about your market while getting them to click because no one knows your traffic like you do.

You know where your people are coming from… You know what they’re interested in.

You got to use that to your advantage.

I know now what my market wants and I can make more stuff about Clickbank. We don’t want to leave things to chance, we want to set  up that  automatically tells us what our market wants while we’re making money.

If you’re interested in this plugin

Enjoy making Clickbank

Affiliate Marketing with PC- Fast Results 300 Click Testing and Tracking


 Hey guys! It’s Marcus here with AffiliateMarketingDude.Com

Today we’re going to talk about Data Driven Results.

  • Far too many people that want to be affiliate marketers, marketers, and successful,
      They look at success.
    They look at failure.
    They look at how they feel.
    They look at how they think about something.
    They look at what they think is going to happen.

You look at some of the most valuable priced property in corporations in America and across the world. What do they have in common? THEY HAVE DATA.

  • They know what’s going to happen
  • They know what their customers want.
  • They know what response to expect.

And you can get better results just by testing 300 clicks to a brand new website, then you can all-day-long go to every marketing conference, reading every marketing book, listening to every YouTube video on marketing!

If you throw 300 clicks on something, you’re going to be lightyears ahead of where you are right now.


Sure it might not work; it might fall flat on its face. You might not get any views on your videos. You might not make any money.
  But the fact of the matter is that THE DATA GIVES YOU RESULTS THAT     YOU CAN LEARN FROM!

For example, if I set up a page, and I drive 300 people to it, then I can gauge what’s going on. I can gauge…
What did they click on?
  What didn’t they click on?
  When did they leave?
  Why did they leave?
  How many opted it?
  How many clicked on the link?
  What link did they clicked on?
   Do they scroll down to the bottom of the page or do they look at the top of the page?

These are the kinds of things that you need to know to be successful online.


In this video, we’re going to talk about testing results so that you can get
the RESULTS you want,
build the BUSINESS that you want,
because nothing is faster than testing your market in the internet marketing world and we’re starting right now!

Subscribe to my channel. Click the notification bell to not miss out any video with the information you need to make money online with affiliate marketing.

Let’s talk about how this works and test your sites, test your videos, test anything online   because testing and tracking and data is the name of the game!

We’re gonna show you how testing works.
We’re gonna show some tools that we use for testing.
We’re gonna show you some of the things that you want to look for.
Some of the things that you don’t want to look for.
What to cut out of your marketing.
What to put into your marketing.
How to build a page that actually works and
How to use your data to actually drive the results to the next level.

When I was a kid, I was really into science. One of the things that I like about science is that there was no success, there was no failure, there was only the idea of results. Thus something worked the way you expected it to work and if not why?

This is one of the things that’s lost in our culture and lost in internet marketing and business.


You see, so many people want to set up just one site and just be rich overnight. That’s cool and that can happen. But the fact is, MOST OF YOU IS THAT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO TEST YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS.

What do I mean by that?

As Thomas Edison have said, “I haven’t failed a thousand times, I only found 999 ways not to build a light bulb.” And you look at it and say, if I built 990 different versions of my website or 999, and I didn’t get the result I wanted, most of us would quit, and I probably would to.

But the fact of the matter is, we need to be testing everything.

For example, if you set up one website, you have to LOOK AT WHAT THE VARIABLES ARE. 

What is it that’s getting the results?

If you’re going for free search engine traffic and your site doesn’t get any traffic, you have to look at it and say:

  1. Is the keyword good?

If the keyword gets no traffic, it doesn’t matter if you ranked for it.

  1. Did I rank for the keyword?
    If you’re not ranking for it then obviously you’re not going to get the traffic.

Or for example, you run paid traffic at it. Let’s say you take 300 clicks. And what I like to do when I test a new site, is I like to start with about 300 clicks. I like to do these clicks with paid traffic.

You have to look at this subjectively.

Let’s say I’m spending anywhere from 10 cents to a dollar per click. If I take 300 clicks, that means that’s gonna cost me anywhere from $30 to $300. I’d like to take 300 visitors and drive them to my landing page.

When these 300 visitors come to our site, if we’re going for an opt-in box which is collecting name and email, I want to take a look at this and say,

  • “Did they opt-in?” and if they did opt-in,
    (2) “How many?”

Throughout this week, I’ve been testing an opt-in page. We tested a new version of a page which was very straightforward. We did a 300-click test on it. It’s actually getting a 60- 65% opt-in. That means 65% of the people who come to the page are putting their name and email.  If you add it up, I got 195 people to opt-in or 195 leads.

If I have this data and I don’t make any money, I have something to work with.

Let’s say you’re doing affiliate marketing. Same kind of thing. You take your page the way you think it’s going to work. You focus on why did the people come to you in the first place you make your page. 

You know I got an affiliate offer, and I would want to download a tool bar, for example, a Bible toolbar. If I drive 300 people to the site, “how many are going to click on the download button or the bible?” That’s variable number 1.

In my testing, I have seen that I have been able to get 90-95% of the people who come to my page to actually click to download it. They don’t necessarily download it but they click it.

So if I take those 95%, and let’s say that’s 280 people.

Out of those 280 people, how many downloaded it?

If 10% download, that means I get 28 downloads.

Take the 28 and multiply it by 3 dollars, I made $84.

If I’m spending less than that for the traffic, otherwise something’s wrong, then I know it works.

You got to look at the variables. This is crucial to get in the results that you want.

In this example, let’s say only 10% clicked on the bible tool bar download instead of 95%, that means I got 30 people (10% of 300), only got 3 downloads, instead of $84, I am now making only $9. That means it wouldn’t work. So you have to know why only 10% clicked and how do I get more to click?

If they’re watching a video, how can I get more people to the video?

For example, I did a YouTube video collaboration which didn’t cost me anything. It got 4200 views. Out of those 4200 views, we had approximately 420 people that actually went to my site. That’s 420 clicks. Out of those 420, we’re getting roughly 50-60% opt-in rate, which means I got about 200-220 leads.


Know your stats!

This is why affiliate companies are able to pay us so much money.

Why am I paid 3 bucks to get a free bible toolbar?
This works because for every toolbar user, it’s gonna make $10 or $20 a year.

You should know the value. The only way to know is by testing. Do not test blind.   Know what you expect and why.  What does the people want to see after clicking? For example, pictures are to use instead of paragraphs.

You have to look at the way people search and you have to test it and see what works best.

Did you know that changing a simple button, could mean a difference between making lots of money and little money?

Did you also know that when I do webinars and I show you what the order form looks like that you’re gonna fill out, like on simplesitesbonus.com, when I show you how to fill that format, my convergence skyrocket? And NOTHING COST ME TO TEST IT.

Most people in internet marketing would rather buy courses than actually test them out. They would rather learn about stuff than actually testing.

 I gotta tell you, you gotta GET OUT THERE AND TEST! 



“From this office, I can reach the world.”

Even the biggest companies in the world are constantly testing at lightning speed.

I’m gonna have some other videos as part of this playlist.

We’re gonna talk about…

Some of the tools you can use to test
How to read the data
How to look at things and make it work better.

This works whether you’re paying for traffic, whether you’re making YouTube videos to get people to your site, whether you’re doing search traffic.

Everything comes down to data.
You say,
  What worked, why?
What didn’t work, why?
Do more of what works, do less of what doesn’t!

Do not cry that you have failed, because you have only failed when you give up. 

This can happen extremely fast!

You can test the site just like the lottery website that I put up one morning and by the end of the day we have made over $1600 from downloads of toolbar for the lottery. It worked because I tested it.

If I was there and no one downloaded it for the first hundred clicks, I’d be worried.
If they didn’t download by the first 200 clicks, I’d be worried.
If they didn’t download by the first 300 clicks, I’d stop running the ad.

We got to look at this subjectively and we have to test things and we have to look at it through the eyes of your visitors because remember, you’re testing to find out what people do.

There’s people behind your website looking at it saying, why should I click, what should I do, how is it going to work.

The key here is knowing what’s going to work.

Knowing what people click on.
Knowing what people respond to.
Knowing what buttons get more click.
Knowing what downloads people like.
Knowing what words people are looking for on the site.

This is explained extensively in your course at simplesitebonus.com.

The beauty of internet marketing, video marketing, affiliate marketing, and everything online is that THE MARKET TELLS YOU WHAT THEY WANT.

If you can learn to read what people tell you through the form of stats on your website, then YOU CAN MAKE A LOT OF MONEY ONLINE. 

But do not ignore this!

So many of my students get stuck on building websites and everything that’s not making money. What’s making money is testing the market, knowing what they want, doing better next time you test it, and making even more money. If you can do this, you’ll be on the path to making lots of money.

2016 UPDATE Using the Google Planner Keyword Tool to Find Niches

Hey guys, its Marcus here!

Welcome back to your Simple Sites Big Profits 2016 desktop software. Go to simplesitesbonus.com and get this software because you’re going get access to all the cool videos, bonuses.

I want you to get familiar with this desktop because this is your niche finding hub, whenever you want to go through and find a niche according to the way that I teach.

I’m going to show you exactly how to use my trigger word list to find niche markets literally in

seconds, run affiliate offers and make some profit.  It’s a lot easier than most people think and most people just struggle because they over complicate it.

So what I’m going to do is, I’m going to give you a little overview;

Once we have the Google Keyword planner open, you’re going to want to go ahead and sign up for an account or sign in, if you already have a Google account, it’s free to be able to use this and it’s going to allow us to see exactly what people search for on Google, so that we could use that to get traffic to our pages and ultimately make revenue with affiliate offers and products.

it’s very important that you know what’s going on behind the scenes. This means that Google is looking at all the searches that are done on its search engine and tallying them up as an inventory.

for example;

if I type something like, “hi my name is Marcus” and I type that in the Google search, it logs it as a search so if I was to go to the Google Keyword planner it would say one person searches for this keyword.

What we’re going to talk about is how to get into the Nitty Gritty, the good niches that actually make you money. obviously the word weight loss is a good word but you’re also going to see that it’s pretty competitive at a $1.68 per click

That means today in January, there’s an average for this word of 550,000. February drops a little bit and in March it drops drastically goes back up during the close to summer months and then drops back down. you can see how that works, if you run your ad in July you’re not going to have as much inventory to get the traffic from.165,000 searches is still a lot of people that’s over 5,000 people every single day.

That’s what this is doing; it’s just looking at the inventory. I want you to really get in your mind that these are inventories, every single line is a value that Google is placing on the searches based on the number of searches and the competition. so if you were to look at the hypothetical value of the traffic you could simply take;


823,000 x $1.68


you’re going to get the value of that word per month.

now because you’re in the simplesites program I’m going to show you how to make more than that!

The competition and the suggested bid is relating to what is called pay-per-click search engine marketing

If your ad was up here you would pay Google for the click this is called pay-per-click marketing

Now don’t get scared there’s ways to do this very conservatively and make a lot of money which I’m going to show you.

For the most part the term mortgage is really expensive and difficult to rank for because you got 450,000,000 people.


What we want to do is, we want to find words with like 50,000 or 100,000 competing and I’ll show you how to do that as well. so when you’re looking at this again remember your tabs, your keywords, search term. the monthly search is paid and free search.

The suggested bid, we’re going to learn that this number means absolutely zilch under most categories, for the word weight loss because of the amount of ads here; you could probably get this for less than a dollar a click.

That’s the basic overview of how the Google Keyword planner works.

Let’s get into our trigger word method and show you how to get away from these expensive and competitive markets like mortgage and weight loss and stuff.

Find a market that you can get into and make a couple of bucks or a couple hundred thousand bucks as if it were under a market that the big guys aren’t fighting for it and you can just skate in and rake in some profits in a really easy way.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my overview of the Google Adwords Keyword planner and how to use

it to find niche markets

I’m going to show you next how to use this list of words in your simple sites desktop to trigger word list to find niche markets in seconds.  Now these aren’t just any niche markets because what these words do is, allow us to go through and actually find out what people search for, without a preconceived idea and you’re going to be blown away when I show you all the profitable niches that you can find in seconds, using this method.

Instant Affiliate Commissions

Hey guys! Marcus here.

“I’m going to show you exactly how you can make instant affiliate Commissions.

That’s right you can actually make instant cash online.”

I’m going to show you exactly how to tap into those markets and make instant affiliate commission so you can get paid, RIGHT NOW!!

This is how a lot of my customers are. They need to make money and we need to make it fast.

That’s why I’m going to show you the fastest way paid online. We’re talking like, RIGHT NOW!! Today. Get paid the same day and I’m going to show you how that works. I’m going to show you exactly how this works, so that you can get results fast. This is exactly what we give you with the simple sites big profits course.

In the course not only do we have software and everything to hook you up with all the stuff you need to make money fast. But we also have a quick start guide that I wrote just for you, This quick start guide is going to take you through exactly what I would do if my back was against the wall and I needed to pay some bills or make some money fast or something bad was going to happen.

What I want to do is talk to you about how to get paid fast…….

The fastest way to make money is to get traffic right now!

One of the misconceptions about internet marketing is the idea that you have to…

  • Create traffic.
  • Generate traffic.
  • Work really hard to get Google to give you some traffic. 
  • Traffic is difficult.

and even pay-per-click marketing where you can pay Google, MSN, Yahoo or any other search engine and be up within five minutes.

So this can be done fast.


 You can start and get results now.

If you want to you could make a few hundred bucks today. If that’s what you wanted to do. Here’s how you do it..

First, you locate a keyword or market.

“So like what we we’re talking about 45,000 a month search for how to cook a brisket. That’s a lot of people, that’s fifteen hundred people a day. This is inexpensive traffic, you can take this traffic, you can get it for three to ten cents per clicks.”

We could go to a barbecue forum, we can help people out and lead them to things that make money. Some will pay instantly. That means you sell something and boom you instantly get some money into your PayPal account.

Like the gas powered scooters. This is known as drop shipping, I would get people looking for cheap gas powered scooter. For cheap, I got traffic for free and I also paid for traffic for that word, very inexpensive keyword. I will drive them to a site that has these scooters on them. What I would do is I would take the money from the customer via PayPal. Then I would go to the drop shipping company I would pay the drop shipping company anywhere $225 dollars to $397 for the scooter and I’d get $800 bucks for the scooter, I pay $397 for the scooter. I now have an instant $403 dollar paycheck.

Now. There are other ways to do this.


Usually they do like NET 7 which means seven days after the close of the week. Instant pay, you might be familiar with some of the cpa networks.Some of them will do instant pay. It’s kind of rare.

If you want to do the instant stuff the best way to go is to use instant PayPal commissions. PayPal is going to be the fastest because you can actually get the money and use it right then and there.

“We use this with hosting, I’ve made hundreds of thousands of  dollars with web hosting and we’ve used PayPal for a lot of that. We get an instant Commission on some of it. Right now, We’re on like net 15 or net 30.”  Some of the companies will do it instantly. There’s also JVZOO which does instant paypal affiliate commissions. Several others as well

So if you want to make money fast that’s a good way to do it.

For me, if I was in a jam.. I wouldn’t focus so much on the instant commissions as I would focus on earning a lot fast, because what happens is when you focus on just instant money then you’re going to deal with fraud issues, you’re going to deal with companies that don’t pay you, you’re going to deal with dropshipping and things like that. I would try to do something where I could see the results right away,. Because if you’re making money and


Then I can actually start to make some headway.


Another thing you can do is you can look into RESELL RIGHTS

A lot of people talk about resell rights and they talk about it the wrong way. They go out and buy resell rights things and try to sell it and no one ever sells because there’s too much stuff.

I try to focus on something…..

I had a site about chili making  and I went and purchasethe rights for a book. For 20 bucks or something I bought the rights to a 400 chili recipe cookbook. I sold that chili

Recipe cookbook for $11.

Here’s how it worked.

If you’re in a jam this stuff works. Believe me back when I was starting out, I use this stuff. It works and gets you where you need to go since you can make more money. So $36 in the pocket. Now for those 240 clicks. I paid 3 to 6 cents a pop. So let’s say 5 cents times 240 would be $12. Take the $12 from the 36 and that would be $24 in my account.

The recipe toolbar pays like $2 per download. Here’s the cool thing they don’t have to buy the recipe toolbar, all they need to do is download it and I get paid. Let’s say out of those 240 people, I get 20 of them to download the recipe toolbar. Now there’s $60 boom. Now I’ve turned this into $96 minus the 13 now the 60 bucks is not instant. I’m going to get that at the end of the month whenever my CPA affiliate offer program company pays me.

So if you want to do this stuff it works really good.

Some of the resell rights stuff is really high price and you can do it. You can even go between some.

Here’s this guy offering to build websites. He knows how to build websites and blog. I go to him and I say…

You’ll do it right? Done deal but before you do it you tell them to get web hosting so I tell them to get web hosting. I get $80 to a $150 commissions. Again, this is later down the road money. But this guy will  pay me the 150 instantly. So there’s a lot of things you can do or you can even pay him to build the site if you want to do it that way.


There’s lots of ways to make money. You just have to open your mind to how it works. It’s very important. You can use a lot of this stuff in conjunction with the other stuff. I could use ..


Guys, the endless possibilities are literally endless. We got to look at it in terms of what you can do to serve the customer. Because, RIGHT NOW  I can go get traffic right this instant. How do I know?

All you have to do is get in front of them.

  • Get in front of the people who can say yes to you.
  • Get in front of the people who can buy from you and figure out how to get paid instantly.

Whether it’s through RESELL RIGHTS, DROPSHIPPING, INSTANT PAY AFFILIATE PROGRAMS. Whatever it’s through use it and make it work now. If you’re in a jam or you just want to make money. What I’ve done is I’ve put together something really cool. There’s actually a special guide print out that I want you to download right now

25 Success Tips with Evan Carmichael Affiliate Marketing Dude

Hey guys it’s Marcus here!


I just got back from video marketing world in Texas and it was really great! It’s first time I’ve been to a video conference and I met some really good people and had some time to sit down with some pinnacle business people in the video marketing space and I wanted to share an interview, kind of like a fireside chat that I had with Evan Carmichael.

If you don’t know Evan, Evan started his YouTube business his channel from nothing and built it to over 1.5. million subscribers hundreds of millions of views. He’s got books. He’s got everything a full-fledged business that he created from his YouTube by simply going after the tactics that I teach you where you go through and you find out what people want. You find out what they’re searching for and you build some content.

Now one of the things I like most about Evans content is the fact that a lot of it is sourced together and pieced from other places. He’s actually creating content based on what other people do.

You’ll see things on his channel like top ten tips from Bill Gates or top seven things an entrepreneur needs to know from Elon Musk or something like that.

In this interview, I had a chance to sit down with them and get kind of real so I hope you guys enjoy it! It’s kind of raw. It’s kind of real we go through the struggles. We go through what it takes to really make it in a business whether it’s YouTube, whether it’s search marketing, affiliate marketing or whatever it is you’re into and I think you’re gonna like it!

I got the Evan Carmichael who is a YouTube legend. He has a lot of subscribers. He’s got a lot of following and he built it all from nothing which is awesome!


MARCUS: That’s a story I really like because I can relate to that, having started mine from nothing and looking at like how do you go from just being a guy who wants to get a following on YouTube or be a guy who wants to get you know business started, or be a guy who wants to go out and start talking to people? How do you build from nothing?

What I brought Evan here to do is say, “Hey what did you do? How did you go through and how did you start and say I’m gonna reach this crowd which by the way his crowd is like success-minded people which is the broadest audience you can get which makes it extra difficult!

So what took you from like I’m gonna go in this success market or the tips to actually implementing and growing? 


Tip #1: Try something.

CARMICHAEL: So I think the first part is just starting. when I first started, I wasn’t trying to be a YouTube famous. It was an experiment. I think people don’t try enough things. I think you should try, you get an idea here well I might be good at YouTube; it might be interesting and go give it a shot  I expect to suck. My first video sucked!

I’m like, “You guys you make your video, it’s gonna suck, you’ll be embarrassed by it.” It’s awesome. That’s always a journey. It’s always a process so just try! You get an idea for it. Just try! So my first videos we’re okay. The first video that I have up, is a profile of Walt Disney.

Modeling success is still what I believed in. I was doing that with my website and having success with that before I moved to YouTube because I’m a visual learner. This is what’s going through my head. I have a successful website. It’s building this growing building the team. We’re making money. I’m a visual learner though like I wish there was video content I wonder if I’d what if I just made a video.

I put a video and we made one on Walt Disney and I put it up on my channel which was nothing you can put on my website. We’ve got a few views on it.

Tip #2: Find something missing in your niche community.

It’s not blowing up but that was kind of fun to make. If I was watching that as a first time entrepreneur I would like that so like you know what that’s kind of cool!

Tip #3: Use your pain to help others and grow your business.

I think your purpose comes from your pain. My pain was struggling as an entrepreneur getting started and not having any money and all the self-doubt and all that stuff we could dive into the pain if you want but I thought like that the 19 year old Evan would love this video.  so I wanted to make more.

I think that’s the starting point like if you’re trying to get married, you’d go on some dates. Your first date you’re not gonna get married. Just do you want to have a second date with that person. So that was the mindset!

Tip # 4: Don’t expect your first TRY to work perfectly.

I had a fun time doing the video. It took a ton of work. I still suck. It was like multiple days of research and editing and filming and all that stuff. The product outcome was not anything to my standards but I like doing it. It’s like I’m gonna go back and do it again.

Tip #5: Continue to make quality content for your market.

And as I as I’m transitioning from hobby to business was continue to make the content I don’t know how often was doing it I took breaks maybe once a week, every couple of weeks and in like a three-month break, and then back on it.

MARCUS: and the model was always get other content compiled it in a way that works which is cool because I look at that and I’ve always been fascinated with quotes.

Like those sites that have just tons of quotes and the sites are boring as hell you’re like I don’t want to scroll through a thousand quotes the you know something good and so I would look at that and I’d be like well I can rank for you know some author and quotes really easily  you know and you compile the video and that that’s why I like that model so much and it just it works!

Now when you went through it were you looking at like okay people are searching for this therefore I’m gonna make this?

Tip #6: Start before having a perfect strategy.

CARMICHEAL: Not yet, just start!

 I think you need to start before having a strategy like you get an idea just start and try it and just see. I think too many people think about affiliate marketing for two years and then they need to have a perfect plan and the perfect launch strategy and then they still don’t do it because they make this big huge thing like just start! Be a part of anybody’s launch campaign and just see!

Did you like the process? Did you make one sale to your brother?  Did you like the process that you’d like going through the launch sequence? Did you like trying to create content? A few days like you know what this affiliate market thing if you love it and you keep going on anything, you win!

Tip #7: If you love it and keep going, you win!

MARCUS: I totally agree and it’s interesting because people get so stuck and they’re like okay well I need to have this decision. I need to know this. I gotta have a business name and you know when I started I don’t know how it was for you but when I started it was like well I need to make money because we were broke I had kids on the way it’s like I had nothing to do no education no nothing and I was just like okay well I guess I’ll learn how to make websites for limo companies because they need them.

I just tried it and I could have gone and I went down the yellow pages and I was like aardvark limo abacus limo and  went down there you go that’d be something like Louisiana oh  but I would call him and you know like I didn’t wait until I had this huge structure I just like hey let’s call this guy and if he says yes I’ll go get a check and I’ll build a site or whatever and  that seems to be like the advice that you’re giving is like get started somewhere. Put a post up. Put video up. get a webpage up get something out there and get a feedback. It might suck but you know you’re gonna go from there.

CARMICHAEL: I think it’s just every person that you look up to, like any of you guys watch any of your heroes they had a lot of pain and building their business like the struggle leads to the success and I’m a huge believer that your purpose comes from your pain so whatever was the most painful moments, it could be childhood, could be something with her recently then humans I think are built to serve and you gain happiness by serving others if you’re not happy in life you haven’t you’re not serving other people enough and so the best businesses are serving customers like you’re selling this. If it’s affiliate marketing you’re selling a product that you believe in that will help the customer get any result not just yet trying to get a commission.

Tip #8: Focus on serving your market.

CARMICHAEL: I struggled so much as an entrepreneur. I was making 300 bucks a month I turned down dream jobs that all my friends wanted to do this and the worst moments were you know my friends want to go out for pizza beer and they’re all investment bankers making six figures and like I can’t afford 20 bucks to go have pizza I’m eating the same chickpea salad every day because it was cheap and would fill me up. I was too embarrassed and ashamed to tell people that I was sucking. I’m living the entrepreneur, I’m hustling working hard, let’s go if it’s like I got nothing. I don’t get few hundred bucks a month and I told him it’s better that I quit at one point that was like the worst day of my life and then and then got back up the next day and said you know Mike I can’t quit I can deal with failing but I can’t deal with not knowing so I have to I have to know I have to feel like I gave everything I had if I still in a feeling that’s okay but I’m not going to leave without fully knowing.

Because I struggled so much as an entrepreneur and now I want to help other entrepreneurs that was my pain and so I still feel the suffering of 300 bucks a month and being embarrassed and ashamed and not getting results and putting work like work.

Tip #9: Let the struggle motivate you.

CARMICHAEL: Real effort. Not like I think it’s gonna be easy and put up an ad and you were working your butt off. Like real work and just not getting results so was the first time in my life that any time if I didn’t if I worked at anything athletics sports, music like I would practice and I would get better and here was practicing is like I’m not getting better where the results is not happening and so I feel that frustration. I know that most people most entrepreneurs don’t make it and so that became my purpose to help entrepreneurs kind of get through those early days.

That’s what I do and I I got saved by Bill Gates. I never met him but by researching his company based on my worst day I said somebody else has figured this out like we’re a software company, he’s tech software but there’s another company, let’s figure this out.

Why am I failing so much, somebody has the answers and so I looked at Bill Gates and Microsoft and like how did Bill Gates go from zero to one. He had lots of ways I’m sure to make an extra million at  great  but like zoo don’t want. How did that happen and what can I learn from it and I learned from him when I put it to work in my business and within a couple months had my first check for $13,000, and that was that was money like whole ridiculous it.

Sounds crazy talking about doesn’t seem like a big amount now but that was that was ridiculous and more important than that I had a strategy that can keep using more than just a one-off sales like this can keep working and so that’s why I also love while in success because my modeling Bill Gates I built my business.

Tip # 10: Model something that works.

CARMICHAEL: So purpose from your pain is helping entrepreneurs the how was by modeling success and so that’s all I’ve done for the past 16 years.

MARCUS: It’s cool because I look at it and you know a lot of us have that drive of the why like for me my dream is to do. I’d like the affiliate thing but my main dream is like I want to change the narrative of alcoholism in America because that’s what I went through, that was my pain point personally. You know it was a very difficult thing because for me I was an entrepreneur I was successful I had money people routed me on.

No one knew what I went through but it was absolute utter hell and I look at the narrative and I like the model you have because I look at it and I’m like okay I can do a mix of content because a lot of your contents kind of like you have a lot of people outsource it it’s kind of builds itself. It’s not like I got to go if I’m gonna do eight videos I got to go in front of the camera you know eight times it’s like boom here’s the content.

CARMICHAEL: How did you get out of the alcoholism? How did you get sober?

MARCUS: I went insane. So alcoholism, really bad you get to a point where you’re living on alcohol. You don’t sleep so you’re never really really sleeping and lack of sleep will make you insane on top of booze it will make you and saying I have like a textbook everything in the textbook of mental issues and childhood stuff I mean I didn’t have it as bad as some people right but for me it was “how did you fix it?” It fixed itself so when I went insane ‘cause I was like four years ago I was drinking I was like I can’t do this my identity was business I was like no I am Marcus the money guy Martin and I would literally look at my numbers and I’m like shoot we only made you know six grand today. I’m a loser . I’m a total loser I only made this I made a lot I’m good and it would just like that and depression set in and then when I went insane I was actually taken out of my house non voluntarily. They were like we’ll get your pants for you sir because I don’t I’m like I don’t wear sweats outside the house. It’s just my thing and they’re like we’ll get your pants okay and I go to the hospital and then they take me to a mental hospital okay I’m sitting there and I watch this lady and she’s like having conversation with every blade of grass okay and I think I’m Marcus entrepreneur I don’t belong here.

Then something goes off in my head and I go is exactly where you belong okay you’re insane okay and me being the control freak that I was really shattered because here I am I’m like I control everything I make the money. I do this. I do that. I do this. this is my world. I get my own pants. you know and having that stripped  even though I talk to myself I was supposed to be in there for 72-hour psych hold.

I talked them out of it and I realized that there is so little in my life that I control okay I got a business I got to I could think about oh I could get plane ticket here I could do that I can move here but you really can’t control much

I can’t control what happens with my kid I can try I could teach them the best but I can’t control it.

Okay like things can happen I can’t control what happens to me.

CARMICHAEL: So how did that did you just did you realize that? Did you read a book that somebody like?

MARCUS: It came slowly so at first I went into rehab and for me I’m anxious I’m totally get these meetings half the time I’m totally anxiousness so I smoke so I can get away and kind of you know digress but for me I got the anxiety and I got everything and I forgot where I was going with that

CARMICHAEL: How did you get the Mindset?

MARCUS:  I had that and I would just be a wreck and so I went into rehab and Here I am in rehab and I shelled out a bunch of money to go to this rehab  and I can’t even shower when I want  I don’t have my own shower I don’t have my own room I don’t get up what I want and to me that experience was like all bets are off Here I am little OCD guy got to wash my hand  you can’t do it  so that was the first realization of I have no way to control my environment and then when I got out I started listening to Rahm das that guy if I could ever like tell him thank you like change in my life Alan Watts loved Alan Watts and I started listening to them and everything changed because I came I used to be a street preacher  and I came from that background and it was here’s how it is we know what God is and it’s like no you don’t but you think you do so  you and I came from that and then I listened to these guys and it just shook my world it’s like money’s not real.

It’s man-made totally man-made is a figment of your imagination it’s an all-day stop agreement so I was like so everything I’ve been working for everything that my identity was built on is a total sham a lie fake there is no Markus and I just came to this point where I was like it doesn’t matter.

From that it can either be like I look at it like there’s billion people on this earth what makes me so special.

I’d like in my life I deserve what the least person on earth has so to me I look at it I’m like I wake up I don’t know why I was born in America I don’t know why affluence Whatever but the guy in India that’s a little kid in India that’s like going through the copper to get food that’s what I deserve or less if there’s someone less than that and looking at that of I’m not special.

Marcus Campbell’s like people are you do this YouTube you do that I’m not special living you know I’m just like everyone else that was really freeing because you can look at that as like a depressing downer though I’m not special or you could be like holy I’m not special nothing matters.

I could go do whatever I want because I’m not living to some fake facade some think I’m not living to what you think I am or what you want me to be or what I want me to be.

That really works for me because I look at it and there’s so many people who go through alcoholism and they come out and they’re basically just pissed off people they can’t drink and they’re like I can’t drink I hate my life  and for me I don’t even I don’t even care anymore I got down at the the bar area last night friends you drink oh my god care I don’t need it you know I don’t need that because one I can sit and I can live with my anxiety I can live with all my weird at ease I can accept myself because another life philosophy is that if I had your upbringing and I was like you and I ended up in life where you are at 38 where I am at 38 I would make the decisions you make  that would be you if I had that exact path I would be you therefore I can’t judge you therefore I can’t you know look at it oh you should do this it’s like but they can’t you know because if you were to take someone and this is a study that I’ve always looked into  if you were to take someone  if you were to take someone to be like hey you know I’m gonna put you in a concentration camp or a different situation it’s gonna change the way they think or the way they believe you know and  you won’t even recognize a person afterward. So it’s kind of interesting  hopefully that helps someone.

Tip # 11: Find the feeling in your pain that others want to avoid in life.

CARMICHAEL: Then it’s like how do you bring that into the business whether it’s strictly alcoholism or lots of people have things that they may not be really they may not be liberal at exactly alcoholism but the sense of being out of control the sense of having some kind of addiction yeh that they feel is beyond them and like how to have hope and I think I think even that transition from what you first said like I just changed to well here’s what I actually did to change like I went and sought help a couple times  I’d listen to Alan Watts and I listened to XYZ and I smoked and like whatever like that that’s what you did and so you can that process helps break down for the people even even then like and then I became an entrepreneur again and I started up affiliate marketing  I want to teach people all of that then like gives real purpose to what you’re doing  and people can relate to it even if they’re not alcoholic.

Tip # 12: Find the model of what you did to get the result others want.

MARCUS: I think it’s cool because you can you can do that with anything and internet marketing it’s really at the core I think about just helping people like you got a guy he’s asking Google a question he’s asking you to back question and what does he want and I look at like how do you predict the search you know because I did a test years ago where I was like could you predict it I would be an alcoholic based on my search history okay you could have totally100 % now if you could reverse engineer that and be like well now I want to reach all the people who are going to become this  you know or like with yours you can take a look at the videos you have and be like okay well these people are looking up this particular person for this reason or something do you ever do.

Tip #13: Have integrity in your business.

CARMICHAEL: I mean my goal honestly for people who are in it for the long term is to build a brand and even I think if you love marketing even anybody in affiliate marketing my goal would be to first only recommend products that I use and like and would want to recommend to my mother a lot of people don’t do that and that’s why I think I feel like marketing gets a bad rap sometimes because people thank you very little  right and you’re gonna make tons of money seven step process but you haven’t done it yourself mm-hmm or buy this coffee it’ll change cancer you know but that’s that’s fine like quality always rises to the top and then what I would want to do is build the brand so that whatever I recommend people will want to go and give it a shot okay so I’m not always trying to find a new audience each time based off of search and intent there’s a direct marketing method works but you can make more money as a brand.

MARCUS: That’s what I kind of look at it and tell me if this is how you see it too because I’d like your perspective I look at it as you use the little stuff to build what’s going to build the brand so like if I want to go in and be like you know I’m gonna do quotes or I’m gonna do trainings on whatever I’m gonna do the little tiny bits because those are gonna build up into the brand.

Tip # 14: Have laser focus and intent in everything you do.

CARMICHAEL: So as long as those bits are part of the foundation you’re not building bits in different pieces that don’t they’re not from the same tree right they’re all over the place and then  if you have the intent to build a brand then it’s getting in front of it so like making videos like having a face here’s Marcus you know not just landing pages behind the scenes the XYZ shell corporation and like they don’t know who you are where you’re from so telling your story throw out everything telling me why you’re using this product and how it ties into the bigger mission so that my goal would be whenever you come up with a new product or you’re repping a new product people want to buy it because it’s you  and they’ll give it they’ll look at it just because it’s you you think they don’t have the interest or need they’ll look at it doesn’t mean they’ll buy it because of you every time.

Tip #15: YOU are the value!

Some people will  some people hardcore superfans like if Marcus is good I’m in easy  but at least it they’ll have a shot like the look I wasn’t thinking about trees but huh trees okay cool when why does markets like tree so much trees are the purpose plant the tree and this reminder of whatever right like  if that actually helped you or maybe you maybe you start to maybe you acquire all of Alan Watts as digital content mm-hmm and now you’re like you want it like people know who Alan Watts is I mean they know him but it’s no like he’s not blowing up anymore like other people are that’s great stuff too that’s like maybe you buy all the digital rights to Alan Watts and like this main saved your life and you’re gonna you’re gonna push it hard you couldn’t affiliate model for people  somebody who’s used to selling coffee machines but love you they’ll like okay what’s his Alan Watts opportunity it’s coming from Marcus so maybe it’s a good thing  so that’s the building the brain part where people are attached to you and your story and the reason why you’re doing things more than just only like search and intent direct marketing is still amazing it still works I just think it’s a small game and covered to build a brand agree.

Tip #16: Play the big long term game now for those that are looking for a small game too.

MARCUS: I look up to that because I’m not that great at it what are the what can we glean from that like a viewer to say dude Marcus if you want to put out a videos a day this is what you need to do

CARMICHAEL: So I think it starts with the decision do I want to be like a how-to kind of person or do I want to build a brand there’s nothing wrong with being how to to by the way just what are the size of your ambition  if you’re doing a how-to channel then you could talk about how to like if you’re selling cleaning products an affiliate cleaning products organic all-natural whatever then it’s like how to clean a lamp or how to clean this chair with these cleaning products and it’s a short you know linear  I’d like two minute video whether you’re in it or your hire actors or whatever and you’re you’re reaping the product and here we go and just people will not subscribe to that channel like if I’m coming to a YouTube channel because my toilet is clogged and I want to know klog  I’m not subscribing to your unclogging toilet  I know  right that’s the problems fixes I don’t like that Bailey I don’t want your daily unclogging toilets in my feet but some but then but don’t don’t judge yourself based off of subscribers because that’s not your model   you’re trying to rank and search for those keywords you’re trying to get views on the video and then you trying to put them into your funnel to get a free sample or make a phone order or call in or whatever

Tip #17: Focus on a goal that fits your model.

That’s one way and that can work and so that you’re very heavy on what’s trending you know what products you’re reaping what are the keywords that would make sense where can you stand the chance of ranking it has it was competitive a little bit but has lots of search volume is it worth taking out ads and what market to make it works as very like direct marketing focus but then don’t freak out when you’re not getting subscribers for your channel  don’t freak out if you’re not getting tons of comments it’s just not the business you’re building that’s okay if you’re building the separate business you want to build a brand then how do you tell a story while long clogging the toilet that’s okay I’ll tell you other stuff about their house you know right like but in that video of doing a how-to this story as well so not only coming for the how-to they come back for an emotion so people come back to my content because they want believe believe is the theme through everything that I do and this profiles of successful people will do lots of tribute as a day times of different content but believe is still the central theme so it’s always positive  there’s never this person sucks there’s never the ten stupidest things Kanye West has ever said  you know it’s always positive.

Tip #18: Stick to your mission statement or value proposition.

Everybody has flaws and faults and arguments and beefs and we probably could have grown faster if I was saying Trump versus whoever people love eating up the negativity  but it’s not why I’m doing what I do so everything is only on the positive side and believe is a common theme so if you know what the message is then you find ways to inject that into the story cool so it starts with that strategic decision do I want to build a brand for the long-term forever like if you want to end alcoholism amazing it’s never gonna happen right but like that’s that’s the best because every day you wake up and there’s a there’s a there’s a big you know ocean or whatever in front of us here not an ocean the lake every day wake up and you’re like you’re trying to empty the lake but you only have a spoon and it’s still getting filmed  and so like but you took a spoon out today and you take a spoon out tomorrow and like you if you help ten people not go down the alcoholism path it’s a good day tomorrow you’re trying to you’re gonna try to get eleven and twelve and so you’re always gonna do the best you can do but you’ll never solve it it’s like having a goal so big that you can never do it mm-hmm that’s awesome you you never want to stop climbing a mountain  when you get to the top of the mountain you hate your life  exactly want to keep climbing so it’s great so you have a goal so big but then how do we tell the story throughout if you have a big ambition like that then then building a brand is a better way to do it if you’re just trying to give you make even faster sales like building a brand is slow ‘you want to you want to bring in sales faster do direct marketing.

One can lead to the other you can transition you can like if you’re in the videos it’s better than some actor if you say hey it’s Markus and I believe in freedom or whatever it’s like a quick thing they start to get to know you a little bit and then you can transition more building the brand as you start building the base. Sost people don’t have like three years to wait to build a brain to make three videos a day and then then you pop right like you got to make money in the meantime.

MARCUS: Although I see a lot of people that are youtubers that have been waiting a long time and it’s like you know they’re getting there and that’s why I like mixing the approach like with the talk sober one that I have I really go in and I’m like okay let’s reach everyone and build the brand as we go which is cool.

Tip #19: Consistency 

It’s just consistency  you know tom bill you know Tom bill you has a he started quest nutrition bars okay for billing or raise the billion market cap billion I forget whatever and then he started a YouTube channel called impact Theory  okay so that’s Tom bill you okay mostly interview style you just crossed half million subscribers  when he first started doing it he’s doing almost daily content multiple times per week at least when he first started doing it people asked can we profile him as a top  10 on my channel mmm like I can’t never heard of this guy tom bill you okay check him out I think I’d mispronounce his name – I said Tom bill you yet because it’s why you E or something I thought it was French bill  I think I called him anyway I looked at this content I’m like I really like this guy mm-hmm but nobody knows him I just I really hope that he keeps going mm-hmm because if he keeps going he’ll build the brand people will get familiar with him and and he could be a huge source of inspiration and me being in the entrepreneur world I I want more voices I want more people to be creating content because they may not be able to hear it how I say it  right like if you come in and share your story and say it even if I have the same point but you say it better with your story awesome right like the goals that get to figure out a mission die not like I have to win  so I want more voices saying similar things in their own ways and so he kept going thankfully and now he’s that half million subs and he’s gonna it’ll keep build up and growing but there’s a lot of people who have genuine talent that’s a pop when you know it you know if you think you’re good and then you’re not winning you feel like it’s a waste of time  but it’s it just it takes consistent work every day putting it in I don’t consider myself talented at this.

I did 350 videos public before I was was I was not completely embarrassed by my videos mm-hmm embarrassed like I couldn’t watch it cringe and like before I was I inspired myself like I watched a video like huh that’s a fire that day that was pretty good I’m proud of myself and I’m seven hundred something videos

Tip #20: Progress always beats perfection.

I think that’s more than most people have on their channel period  people quit after –

MARCUS: I still don’t I mean I watch mine and it’s funny ‘cause I’ll be like whatever that’s I don’t think it’s good and then of people love it.

CARMICHAEL:  Well you’re the mural your own worst critic right we always look judge ourselves the hardest which I think is good as long as it’s a kick forward not down like okay I can do better see that like.

I stumbled there I messed up the words or people couldn’t understand me okay I can do better next time I’m gonna get better not like oh my god I suck like now I can never take another video they’re all the video camera right like you do suck it’s amazing don’t have crazy high expectations for yourself you will suck and you’re getting better every day.

A  I think a lot of people miss that because it’s just our culture is so much on let’s just get successful now let’s get the end result it’s like one of the things I learned from Ram Dass and Alan Watts is you know life’s about the journey and not about just getting there like you can get there you know I think he said something like you don’t go to the music show to hear the last note you go to hear the whole thing you know so why do we live life where we’re like let’s go to the last note let’s get the fun thing or let’s get the the life we want and they don’t enjoy because I mean even though I’ve had struggles and I don’t know if it’s same for you but I wouldn’t trade it for anything then going through it growing through it living through the stuff is like why would I change that that was all part of the journey.

CARMICHAEL:  I mean it’s a hard message to hear for someone who’s struggling and doesn’t have money and it’s like having a hard time paying the bills and everything so so Hacket it’s like like looking for hacks is great.

Tip #21: Look for shortcuts and hacks to get out of a rut.

If Marcus gives you advice on how to get your way through affiliate marketing faster you just learned something great like you want to look for shortcuts you want to look for hacks you want to you want to get there fast as possible but it’s still the journey that you’re going on so you’re trying to climb a mountain you could you could use special gear to climb faster and you can go with a Sherpa to get you up the hill and like know the pie is great  but you’re still climbing a mountain  and it’s very like having the Internet is is unparalleled to anything because you could look at what people did like exactly what they did and follow it you could just I mean there’s people there are copycats that make money there’s people that copycat their way to get big you know and I’m not an advocate of copycatting but you can look at it like Richard Bandler says success leaves Clues.

I know he got his he learned a lot of his stuff.

CARMICHAEL: I think copying is great but it only takes you so far people copy my stuff all the time exactly like same font same copied all the time. Awesome like I copy people when I got started but if all you do is copy you’ll be a junior version of that person forever  I spend zero time looking up people who copy me I’m worried about the people who are innovating mm-hm so copy and get you so far you can get maybe you get to the point where you’re breaking even paying your bills just by copying as long as it’s ethical you’re not like  stealing like selling to somebody else right.

Tip #22: Play by the rules.

I mean there’s rules you got to play within the rules but copying formats is a great idea to start and then you you you adjust and you figure it out and you have to inject your own specialness to it otherwise you just stay a copy of somebody else cool.

MARCUS: Alright cool any last-minute things to people that are struggling it like let’s say there’s this guy and he’s just he’s not getting it for whatever reason or she’s not getting it for whatever reason and you just got to get him over that that hump to like okay I need to I mean I know I need to do something but where do i what do i do do I like think of my wife first do I think of my how do I make a plan so Make your actions match your ambitions.

CARMICHAEL: I think you need to make sure that your actions map to your ambitions okay so what I would say is if you want to what are your ambitions what do you want what is the life that you want not just I feel that marketing their business but your life like do you want spend more time with your wife or your married kids no parents you love boating like whatever what is what is your life like who cares what I do where Marcus does you love spending two hours watching The Smurfs every Saturday morning like like that’s a particle thing like awesome right and you’re like own it like I love the Smurfs right  I don’t want the service but if you love the Smurfs like then don’t have to hide this thing so what does don’t worry about our schedules what is your schedule like what is what is that perfect looking week look like for you ambition like where do you want to go and then you start filling out your calendar the problem is people who have big ambitions are doing a lot of talking and I’m not doing the work is not being put into their schedules.

Tip #24: Put in the work.

I look at what you’re doing time on I want to see you like ask yourself look at your calendar year look at your Sunday all the way to the next Sunday if you did that if you did what’s in your calendar would you get closer to your goals and for two people to know mm-hmm like you’re not doing the work  and the work then becomes okay if it’s affiliate marketing great like then massive action what are you doing  like rocking watch every single video Marcus has ever made thank you for the plug but how many goodies you have  500  videos like Doc through it when he says do something do it try it stop thinking about it and work for Marcus see if it works for you if if you go through  videos and Marcus gives you advice and all of it is garbage go find somebody else but like but work like do it stop thinking about it and do.

I’m a big believer in 5-95 rule which is like 5% of time planning thinking and 95% doing cool.

Tip #25: Spend 5% on planning, 95% on doing.

People spend too much time planning. Planning is important but they spend too much time thinking and planning it doesn’t count as doing percent of time has to be doing even a poor plain executed well we’ll crush even some like startup newbie I feel it marketing who do like is ripping off Marcus’s stuff and getting the half right even if you followed that guy’s plan you could still win if you follow it just do it! People aren’t doing enough and so making sure your actions map to your ambitions I think is really important.

MARCUS: Cool I like that well thanks for being here I like this where can they find you if they need you.

CARMICHAEL: Evan Carmichael everywhere on YouTube. I think it’s pretty easy if it feels like search for any person who’s ever set a quote in their life you will find this channel.

Thank you and we’ll see you guys in next video.
