How AdWords Works

What Is Adwords – How Adwords Works: Drive Traffic To Your Website — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com

Today we’re talking about Google AdWords, how it works, and how you can use it to promote your business, product, service, or market yourself as an affiliate marketer.


What is Google AdWords?

Google AdWords is a paid advertisement program where you can run your own advertising campaigns. It’s like a big marketplace for all the keywords that are searched for on Google. Google is searched over 4 million times a minute—that’s like 65,000 times a second. That’s a lot of searches. As a business owner, you can put yourself in front of whoever you want who’s searching on Google.

If you did a search on Google right now, you’d see some listings at the top of the page that have little green boxes next to them. These are ads, and people are paying to show those listings there. That is run through the Google AdWords platform.

For example, let’s say we go on Google and search for Kartra bonus. That’s a product that I’ve been promoting lately that helps marketers manage all their stuff. If you do a search for Kartra bonus, you’ll see the following results.

You’ll notice that near the top that there’s one of my listings for Affiliate Marketing Dude. I’m paying for that listing to appear there as an ad.

If we scroll down the page a little bit more, you’re you’ll see a listing that’s also from my AffiliateMarketingDude.com site, but it doesn’t say “ad”.

See the difference between the two? The first listing is for paid traffic. This one is ranked using SEO, or search engine optimization. That means it’s ranked organically, and it’s free. You usually don’t want to only shoot for free traffic. Sometimes it’s very difficult to get ranked for the words you’re after, and you still might want to be higher up on the results page.


How to Use Google AdWords

To use Google AdWords, you go to their website and you sign up for an account.

You can bid on keywords or phrases, and your ad will show up when people search. Google AdWords is kind of like a bidding war. The more advertisers who are bidding your word, generally the higher the price-per-click will be. So if you have a ton of advertisers, the price is going to go really high. If you have low advertisers, or zero advertisers, the price will be really low. Sometimes a click costs several dollars, and other times it costs only a couple cents per click. This greatly depends on the word and the market.

There are several things to keep in mind when using Google AdWords.



First of all, you have to be careful in selecting your keywords. To do this, you’ll use what’s called the Google AdWords Keyword Planner. This will show you what keywords people search for and how many times a month they’re searched.

So you might have like 30,000 people a month searching for affiliate marketing, or 100,000 people a month searching for make money online, or maybe there are 500 people a month in your local area searching for real estate agent, or lawyer, or something like that.



The next thing to keep in mind is the location. You can target your ad to only show for people in a certain county, like the US, or even just a city. So if you’re a realtor in Winter Springs, Florida, your ad will only show when those people in Winter Springs search for realtor or homes for sale or something like that.

When you pair the keyword with the location, you can literally drill down to your perfect prospect.


Match Type

Then we have what’s called match type. This tells you how you want your keyword to trigger the ad.


  • Broad match. There is broad match, which would trigger any searches that have your words in them, no matter what order they’re in. This search would be without any other punctuation marks. (Example: coupon download). Let’s say you bid on “coupon download”. It would trigger coupon download, download coupon, how to download coupon, I need to download coupon, coupons for download—anything that has the word coupon and download in it. You’ll trigger it all under broad match.
  • Exact match. Next is exact match. Here, your ad only shows up for people who search your exact keywords in the order you have them. You have these searches in brackets. (Example: [coupon download]). If you do a bid for an exact match on [coupon download], that means people have to search for coupon download for it to show up.
  • Phrase match. Then, there is phrase match. Your ad will show when people search for your exact keywords or other phrases with the keywords in it. These are in quotes. (Example: “house prices”). If you bid on “house prices” as a phrase match, it will come up with things like house prices in our area, house prices 2018-2019, house prices predictions, etc. It will have everything, but it has to have the phrase match exactly in it.


Setting up the ad

When you set up the ad, you have a couple different elements:

  • URL. This is your domain name. (So for me, it’d be AffiliateMarketingDude.com.)
  • Target link. This is where the customer is actually going to go. This allows you to track things or test different pages. (My target link might be AffiliateMarketingDude.com/GA54 for Google AdWords campaign 54. That way, I can track it.)
  • Ad copy. You’ll want your ad copy to match the keyword. So if your ad is for realtor in Winter Springs, your ad might say “Winter Springs Realtor,” and something like, “Over 2 million in sales last month,” or “guaranteed to sell or you don’t pay,” or something like that. That would be your ad.


Paying for the ad

Not only do you control the keyword, the location, the match type, and your ad, but you also control the amount you pay.

You’ll see in the Google AdWords Keyword planner a suggested bid amount.

The suggested big for Winter Springs realtor might be between 75 cents and $4. This is called pay-per-click. It doesn’t cost anything to show your ad. You only pay when someone clicks on the ad and goes to your site.


Daily ad budget

Here is where it gets really cool. You can tell Google that you only want to pay a certain amount per day. This is called your daily ad budget. For instance, you can say that you only want to pay $20 per day. So if you’re paying $1 per click, you’re only going to get 20 clicks a day. In your business, that might be enough to generate some income, and with some others, maybe you need more.

Once 20 people click on your ad, Google will pause it and stop showing it. Then the next day, it will start over.


Data and analytics

Google makes it really easy to see your stats and control everything you’re doing. You can go into your account and see what’s working and what’s not. You can see the keywords that people clicked on and the pages they went to. If an ad’s not working well, you can pause it. If it’s working, you can give it a higher budget.



You never want to promote an affiliate product directly on Google AdWords. They don’t really care for that. Instead, you want to promote yourself or your website as the commodity in your market. That way, when people come to you, they can join your mailing list. They can check out the stuff that you have on your site. They could read the information. They can watch the videos. Whatever it is you have for them, they’re going to look at that. Hopefully they’ll like what you have to offer, and they’ll want to learn more.

Find Hot Amazon Affiliate Niche In Seconds-For Affiliate Marketing

Last night we were sitting there watching T. V with my wife and kids.  Then all of a sudden, we hear this boom! Outside!  We all rush outside and we hear this hissing noise and it looks like its steaming everywhere. And it’s the middle of the night, the light is not working and we’re going crazy.  What is this sound? So we go around and found out that our pool filter had blown up.

Luckily, nothing was damaged, no one was hurt. But today what we’re going to do is we’re going to talk to you about how that is one of the hottest affiliate niches and how you can find Amazon affiliate niches in seconds.

Before we go any further, if you like learning about how to make money online with affiliate marketing and Amazon and all other ways,  then go ahead and click that subscribe button right now and hit the little bell notification icon.  That way you get my latest videos when I come out with them and you can be here with me every Wednesday when we do a live training. So do that right now when it’s fresh on your mind.

Now let’s dive in and talk about how to find this hot Amazon affiliate niches and why my pool blowing up is something I think we can learn from. Let’s go over to the Google Adword keyword tool and take a look for the word “pool filter”.

Now you’re going to notice that the competition set is slightly high but you’re going to notice that the numbers are actually pretty low in comparison of what this niche sells because pool filters can be thousands of dollars. The average is like $500. So there is a lot of money in this market and there is a lot of people getting a lot of traffic. For example, if I am to take some of these people on YouTube with videos about pool filters.

Here is a guy here with 5000 views, 6000 views,  10,000 views, 75, 000, on and on we go.  So a lot of people are looking at issues with pool equipment and that is a hot niche. As you can see, this pool filters on Amazon are pretty expensive.

Because these are in the category of patio, lawn, and garden, you’re going to get like 8% commission as per their guide right now. That means if I get 8% on a 6$600 pool filter, that means we’re going to get $48 per sale( which is pretty good). That means if you get $48 per sale and you sell 2 of them a day, that’s $96 a day. $96 in a year(365 days) , that’s $35,000 a year with one little site about one little item which is pretty done cool. So, you can find lots of niches like this, and I want to challenge you to find them by actually going through and looking at some of the household problems that you’ve had lately. Maybe your DVD went out, or maybe you want to fix your stereo system. And the way you can find this is by going to the Google Adwords tool and typing in the last three things that went wrong in your house. Maybe you’re typing in like “refrigerator won’t”.

So look at that, “refrigerator not cooling with 5400 searches a month with a very low competition. If you want to pay for the traffic, it’s like 16 cents. If you want to look it up on free traffic, you can probably get that too with a little work. And you look at this; you can actually go to Amazon, type in “refrigerator”. Here are the search results:

Most people are going to go for the most expensive ones in their house. And again, your commission on this is going to be pretty high. There are also other affiliate networks where you can get this stuffs on such as BestBuy, and all different places. Also, you can refer them to CPA affiliate offers for refrigerator repair, home repair, and different things like that. As you can see, the sky is the limit to what you can do. You can literarily just have a site that’s about refrigerators not cooling. You can even sell extended warranties for refrigerators and things like that and make a ton of money.

If we go to Google and search for “refrigerator not cooling”, there is only 305,000competing and that’s not too bad. And on the paid search, there’s literarily no one which means you can do a lot of damage here, make a lot of money and sell a hell of a lot of refrigerators. You can go through and find other stuffs. Perhaps, “dishwasher won’t”.

So here we have “dishwasher not draining” with 14,000 searches a month. Now it seems there is only one advertiser on Google which means we can get this pretty done cheap.

And again if you go to Amazon and look up “dishwasher”,

amazon associate program

best amazon affiliate offers

You can also form out leads if you want to go to Offervault and type in “repair”. Okay we got “home service repair.

amazon affiliate alternative

. Now look at that, low competition. So you can see that there is a lot of stuff here for air conditional. So here is the offer on offervault for air conditioner.

offervault hvac offers

offervault hvac offers

Here, they stay on the line for 90 seconds talking about their air conditional. They pay you $18; they don’t even have “buy anything”. If you look at this stuffs, you’ll see that it’s really easy to do.

You can even do like, “dog hair pool” (this is the one I looked up to see if my dog hair was actually clogging)

You can teach these people (like me I didn’t know that my dog hair can clog my pool filter and make it blow up). These people would probably like to know that and they’ll probably like you to tell them.

Now what I want you to do is that you should go and think about the last three things that happened in your house.. Now, the reason I tell you the things that happened is because you’re going to have experience with it. You know a little about it and you know what you did to fix it.

You can actually go through and make a little website about this, lead them to Amazon products and make lots of money. It’s actually really easy. So, if you like these kinds of stuff, make sure you subscribe right now, click the little bell and hop over to Affiliatemarketingdude.com, put your name and email in the box.

Get my free toolbar and I’ll help you find this offers, help you find these niches and help you learn to make money online with Affiliate marketing. I hope you like this? I’m going to go to Disney land with the kids, hopefully, when I’m back the pool man will be done fixing our filter. Thanks for reading this note.

My journey was working at a fast food restaurant slaving away for 12-16 hours daily!

I came across affiliate marketing when I 1st stepped online.

I started to promote Clickbank and Simple Sites Big Profits not knowing ANYTHING about marketing.

I bought a $250 course Simple Sites, Big Profits plus software which I SPLIT with my boss.

(She 7 years later now works online with us) 

That course (which came with a 96 page PDF as I vividly remember and STILL have)

That PDF and course helped me to better understand the affiliate marketing SEO process.

I then took what I learned between that and Brian Monster Profits Johnson m.

Crafted my 1st of dozens upon dozens of affiliate sites/offers based around Halloween.

I went 50-60k in debt trying to “figure” out the sustainability side.

Lost my job in 2011 after 2 months buying my 1st home.

Being that I had/have nephews to raise as well as 2 of. My own boys.

I spent 9 months figuring things out online while FINALLG finding blogging was my strong point.

That lead to video and after 2 years of “struggling” we haven’t had a month under 20-30k since June 2012.

After finding video as a strong point. I started my own movement and community based around Traveling/affiliate marketing.

Helping 1000s to great affiliate marketing incomes.

Details Coming Soon… if you KNOW you want to join the bootcamp post a comment below or contact us via live chat or pcmoneymaking.com

Its been almost 5 years since we have done a “Simple Sites Bootcamp”

this was a hands on training course i used to offer where we took a handful of students under my wing for 16 weeks and helped them build sites and learn affiliate marketing.

it was wildly successful and many people got some great results.

i am thinking about bringing that back this year… if you are interested let me know.

i included an old testimonial video from one of our last bootcamps… it was great and we even had a live meeting where we all got together and shared everything…

Here Are The Details From The Last Bootcamp

Yes, Marcus! Please Sign Me Up For Simple Sites Bootcamp
And Hold My Hand And Personally Coach Me
For The Next Sixteen Weeks So I Can Profit Online With You

Here’s what I’m getting:

1.  Marcus’ Exclusive ‘Keyword Training’ That Will Forever End Your Problem Of Not Having Enough Traffic And Not Being Able To Convert Your Visitors Into Buyers.

This part of the course is the most valuable.  Once you learn how to convert your visitors into cash, you will be able to…


  • Profit from totally obscure NON COMPETITIVE niche markets and even turn them into full on business’
  • Compile Huge Lists Of Untapped Words, Build Simple Sites, And Profit Like Crazy (this has made me a ton)
  • Plus I’m giving you the keys to the vault in my EXCLUSIVE private swipe file.  Yes, I’m actually going to take you inside my adwords account, affiliate accounts, and my ‘free ranking’ sites so I can show you all the keywords I used, affiliate programs, websites, blogs, and more…

The idea here is to have me show you what works… yea live stuff that’s working NOW so you can tweak the process for your niche, throw up a site, and get paid.


This is not based on theory or fluff… this is everything i have been doing for the last 11 years to earn over $4.2 Million Dollars in personal affiliate commissions.

After you learn my exclusive keyword finding techniques and start to find untapped profitable niches in seconds its time to…

2. Get My Secret Site Types, Templates, And Themes That MAKE MONEY…


Listen, I’ve been doing this a long time.  I’ve spent OVER 1.5 Million On Paid Traffic, I’ve Generated Hundreds Of Millions Of Search Engine Visitors To My Sites ‘Organically’ I’ve Bought Banner Ads, Email Drops, The Whole Nine Yards…

And I don’t say that to be like “look how fancy I am.”

I tell you this because anyone who gets that much traffic (let alone pays for it) knows a thing or two about converting it.

So while your competitors are out there wasting time with articles, review sites, and all that other cookie cutter crap that doesn’t even focus on what people want… you will be all stealth like, converting your visitors to cash.

Heck I’m even gonna show you how to profit WITHOUT EVEN SELLING STUFF!!!

Which is funny because the most profitable stuff I have done online is….

3. Finding People Searching For ‘Non Buyer’ Keywords And Giving Them Free Stuff!

Selling stuff thru clickbank and amazon and using adsense is cool and all… but if you want to make real money (like more than $9 a month) then you need to learn how to find cool offers for your visitors that pay you when they get free stuff.

Its kinda like those newspapers where they have a little sample of shampoo or hand soap or whatever… those companies pay a fortune to GIVE THAT STUFF AWAY… and they don’t even know if people are interested… its just a guess.

How much more would they give you if you had a site getting traffic for something like “free samples without surveys” which gets like 27,000 searches each and every month.  Its not that hard to do 😉 and ill show you exactly how this works.

I’ll even show you how to build killer mailing lists FAST.  Like the one i made that got over 450,000 subscribers in just three months.  Or my super profitable one that I use every week to turn a huge profit.

Bottom Line, If You Are Serious About Making This Work And Sticking With Me For At Least 90 Days… I’ll Help You…

Since I am offering personal support and coaching (which takes my personal time) let me be super clear up front and tell you that I do not want people who…


  •  Just Wanna ‘Try This Out’ And Screw Around (you can’t make it in this business messing around)

  • The Type Of Person Who Thinks Getting A Program Will Make Them Rich… Oh Sure I Have A WEALTH Of Knowledge In This Program But You Have To Actually Do Something To Make It Work…  Its not hard… but you have to be persistant…

  • The Person Who Knows RIGHT NOW That They Will Get A Refund For This Product.  Look, I Take My Refund Policy Very Seriously, By You Getting My Product You Are Taking Resources AWAY From My Business And Time Away From My Family And I Really Don’t Want To Work With You If You Are Gonna Waste Those Resources… So If You Are Looking for The “no questions asked refund policy” Go Find Another Program… Because I Ask Questions… And If You Want To Quit Sure I’ll Ask Why.


On The Other Hand.  If You Are Sick And Tired Of Putting All Your Effort Into Making Nothing, Tired Of Not ‘Getting It” And Serious About Making This Work, And You Are Done Messing Around… Then You NEED To… Take Advantage Of This RARE Opportunity To Work Side By Side And Internet Marketer Who Actually Cares About Your Success And Will Show You How To Profit Online Fast…

Make Money Blogging

How to Make Money Writing a Blog – $500 A Day Blogging Is It Possible??? — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.

Is it even possible to make money blogging from the comfort of your own home? Of course it is. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past 18 years from my backyard office.

Today we’re going to talk about how you can get started making money online with blogging.


Find What People Are Interested In

Most people don’t get paid just to blog. Most people are paid to generate an audience. You need to get relevant people to see your blog by talking about relevant topics. So you do this by finding something that people are interested in.

Now, a lot of people will tell you to blog about your passion, or blog about something you’re interested in, or something like that. That’s good, but you also have to be blogging about things other people are actually interested in. So if you’re interested in something that no one else in the world cares about, you’re not going to make any money blogging. It has to be something very relevant.


Use Google Keyword Planner

You can use the Google AdWords Keyword planner tool to find out what people are searching for every single day. Four million people search Google every second—that’s 4 million different searches every minute. That’s a lot of people that you can get to your blog.

If you’re looking to be a blogger from the comfort of your own home, and you want to make money with this, you need to generate an audience. You are going to be paid in direct proportion to the value of your audience.

Let’s say you start to write about a topic and you get a following. People come to your blog and read your stuff and watch your videos.

It’s all about influence.  If you can get your audience to do something, then you can make money. And there are plenty of ways to make this happen.


CPA Marketing

Perhaps you can get your audience to perform an action. You can do CPA (cost-per-action) marketing, where you get paid when visitors enter their information on a form, or they download something, or they call a number. They don’t even have to buy anything.


Affiliate Marketing

You can also do affiliate marketing. With this, you go to websites that have affiliate programs, you sign up and get a custom link that goes to your product, and you paste that link on your website.

Make sure that you have a good affiliate disclaimer that tells your visitors that you are an affiliate of the product. That way they don’t think it’s an unbiased review, since you’re getting paid to do it.

You can get affiliate marketing disclaimers with my affiliate marketing toolbar at www.AffiliateMarketingDude.com.


Google AdSense

You can also do what is known as Google Adsense. This is a great way to monetize your audience, because all you have to do is stick ads on your blog, and you get a check when people click on the ads.


Other Methods

There are other things you can do as well, like

  • making a mailing list
  • creating a YouTube channel around your blog

The name of the game is being able to get lots of people to view your content. In order to do that, you have to know what people are searching for.  All you have to do is write about that, focus on the people that want things in your niche, and link them to things that make you money.


How to Set Up Your Blog

Blogs are extremely easy to set up and manage. You can literally set up a blog in about five minutes. You can go over to www.GoHubSite.com and watch my video that teaches you how to set up your first blog in literally 5 or 6 minutes–maybe 15 if you’re really slow. But it’s very easy to do.

Make Money With Blogging- How I Earned My First $230 And How I Make A Full Time Income With My Blogs

Hey guys its Marcus here and welcome to the affiliate marketing dude note section.  Today what I’m going to do is I’m going to break up how to make money blogging.  We’re going to start with the story of how I first get started blogging and how I made my first $230. Now I want you to note that this report will be kind of long.  This is a detailed note that also answers all of your questions and everything like that.

Now you can go out there on the web to watch a 9 minute or 20 minutes videos or even read short articles on how to set up a blog and make money but are they going to give you the whole details? Are they going to get you the real deal of what you need to do to get started and start making this business work for you? Chances are you’re going to run into a lot of different videos, opinions, and things about what it really takes to make money online through the blogging platform.

A Little Bit About Me

Now if you’ve known me, I’ve been around since about 1999/2000 when I started my business. I got into blogging in around 2006-got really heavy into it in 2008/2009. Since then, I have made 7 figures (multiple 7 figures) from my blog using various different traffic methods, offers, and various different things that I have promoted on this blog in a really cool way.  Just before I started writing this note, I did some research and found out some statistics from popular blogs. And some of those popular blogs are getting probably like 10 times of the amount of traffic that I’m getting yet, they’re not making that much.

We were actually comparing the difference between the traffic and the people out there making between 10 cents to 50 cents to a dollar per visitor.  We are making $3 per visitor and they even include repeat visitors. So we want to take a look at this and hash it out.  We’re going to go through and show you exactly how it works. If you’re feeling frustrated and you feel like your computer is about to just clonk out because it is overwhelmed just like you are, then we’ve got good stuff in store for you.  Or if you’re like, “Marcus, I’ve been running and running and trying to get into that money but I can’t seem to get anywhere.  It’s like I’m on an endless tread-milling, there is no way for me to make money blogging so can you spell it out in a real-world way?”. That’s exactly what we’re going to do and we’re starting right now with how to make money blogging online.

What we’re going to do today is:

  • Talk about how this whole blogging platform thing works and
  • Show you the in and out of what you need to do to actually make this stuff works.

So if you’re frustrated with making money online, you feel like maybe you can set up a blog or maybe you can’t. But you’re just having troubles getting into the money. That’s what we’re going to solve today. Now, do you feel like you’re working very hard and getting nowhere? Would you like to see a forecast in your future? The future where you’re making money every single week? That’s our goal here.

But first what we’re going to do is we’re going to disclaimers because what you’re going to see here is my personal results. These are the results that I’ve gotten from almost 20 years of making money on the internet. Now, are you going to get the same results as me? Probably not! However, I would say, one of my students actually went on to make more than I have and he is doing extremely well.

So what we want to do is to declaimer this and say, “The average person looking to make money blogging literarily makes nothing”. Now you’re going to see some success stories on the internet where people are making $250,000 a month blogging, $50000 a month blogging, 10,000 a month blogging, $1000 a month blogging, and whatever. Sure, you’re going to see these statistics, but what you’re not going to see is the behind the scenes. And the behind-the-scenes of many big bloggers is the fact that they have a lot of traffic. I’m talking “a lot of traffic like a quarter of a million views, a million views a month, and lots of views”. Now, you guys know that traffic can be difficult and daunting to get. We’ve got SEO- how do we get ranked on the search engine? We’ve got pay per click- how can we afford traffic when the big companies are buying all the words. We’ve got all these things that are seemingly going against us and it looks like how are we going to do this.

How is a guy going to start from nothing and be able to get something? And that’s what we’re going to talk about in this course. How do you start with nothing and actually make this work? That’s a very important thing and we’re going to go through that today.

Again the disclaimer: Results are not typical, most people make nothing but I think if you follow these instructions, you can get a little taste of result and that’s all it takes. Just like years ago (almost 21 years ago from here) when I made my first $21 online. Now I had made money online by selling website but I never made passive income from a sit. I remembered that day very clearly as I was over there (4th of July, 18 years ago), and I’m sitting there at my dad’s house. And I go home, looked at my computer and I found out that I made $21 today out of a site that I built. And I thought to myself, “This is crazy”.  That little taste was enough to make me say, “You know what? This works”. Now a lot of people will get that taste, and be like, “Whatever, I made $21. Great, maybe it’s a fluke, whatever”. But the fact of the matter is those who are going to make it are the ones that get the little taste and lash on, go full force and make it work. And that’s the important part that you need to look at. Because if you can make a dollar online, you can make $10. And if you can make $10, you can make a $100 and if you can make $100, you can make $1000. And that’s really what it boils down to. It’s the same exact process. And as you build this blog, as you set things up, you’re going to get better and better. You’re going to learn about your market more. You’re going to understand what they want. You’re going to learn more about offers. Hopefully in one of my coaching courses, you can ask me how to make it better. And you’re going to go, you’re going to build these things up and it’s not as hard as people will think. But I’ve got to tell you, there is a lot of myth about how to make money online. Now when I first started blogging in 2006, I was frustrated. I was listening to tele-seminars( that’s what we listened to back then), I was watching the very limited amount of videos and trying to learn the stuff. They were talking about things like movable type”, they talked about WordPress, and they talked about all these platforms. And back then we actually have to install the services on our server, ourselves.

So there I was, that time I converted my garage into an office. I was in my garage and it was 4 in the morning. It was hot and humid and I’m sitting there and I’m like, “what am I going to do? I know I need a blog. I’ve made millions of dollars online before this point but I knew I had to get into blogging because that was what was taking over and getting big. I was looking at it and I’m like, ‘okay, how am I going to install this or do that?” I’m not a programmer, I’m not that techy. I would like make a file 777 which is the writeable thing that you need when you’re uploading stuff. And it was a very difficult thing to do.

And I gave up. I’m like, “well,, I make money online, do my own stuff, I’m not just going to bother with this, I’m good”. Then couple of years go by, everyone starts talking about blogging, so we looked at this trend and I’m like “okay, 2009 rolls around and I’ve got to get into blogging”.

So I paid someone a small fortune to set up a blog, and make it fancy looking and everything like that. I remember one of the things that I like about blogging because when I set up old web pages I had to go to the search engine. I had to get backlinks,. Tell them I existed, do all this stuffs to make it work. But I noticed when I started blogging; I put up a simple little blog post up to test it. And I literarily got ranked in Google in 53 seconds (I still have the screenshot somewhere on one of my old computers).

I was like, “hey, this site was put up 52 seconds ago, and there it is on Google and it’s really cool. We’re going to look at that and we’re going to focus on what people want. We’re going to be like, ‘how do we make this blog work? There I was, I made this thing rank right away.

Here we are, I set up a blog, it ranks in Google, I’m like cool, “hey this is working, this is awesome”. To me, I lashed on to that really fast. I was like, “hey check this out, this thing ranked right away in Google”. I was happy, that is working and that gets me really good results.

Now I noticed that one of my blogs started ranking for a keyword and that keyword generated me $230, and that was the first $230 that I made with blogging, which is cool. It was for an affiliate product that I sold. We later went on and used the same tactics to rank a similar type keyword for a different affiliate product. And I went in and make like $3000 sale with one ranking, with 131 people who saw the post. Like the amount I made in that post for the traffic was insane.

So we’ve got to look at this and focus, and say, ‘what can we do with these stuffs?”. So first and foremost, we want to look at this and say blogging is powerful, blogging is big, WordPress is one of the biggest platforms in the world. There is a lot of blogs out there that are making lots of money, which are doing lots of stuffs getting lots of traffic. Now on the flip side, there are also lots of blogs out there that get very little traffic. There is also a lot of blog out there that gets a lot of traffic but makes very little money. So, what we’re going to do is we’re going to go through the 13 myths of blogging. What are the 13 myths of setting up your blog and making it work? How do we focus on this, how do we narrow it down and dive into what works? So here we go, let’s go through the 13 myth.

Myth One: If you build it they will come

People say, “Well, you know what? Just go do your thing. Like Garry Ville, he’s great, he’s got good stuff), but over and over he’s like “check this out, just do what you do buddy, keep doing what you do. Keep doing it, follow your passion”. And that’s a good advice to a degree, and I know what he means. He’s like, ‘hey we need to do it in the right way”. What we want to do is we want to focus the right way. If you build it they would come, it’s not going to work. If you set up a blog about, “how to make money, how to lose weight or how to cook” doesn’t promise anyone to visit your site. That doesn’t do anything. I don’t care how good of an idea it is, I don’t care how great your niche, I don’t care how good your content is, I don’t care how nice your blog looks. I don’t even care if you’ve spent $100,000 buying a fancy domain name, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you do things deliberately and focus. What we’re going to talk about here as we get through this course is on how to focus on what’s going on, focus on what really works. If we build it, will they come? No they will not. So we’ve got to get that myth out of our head and we’ve got to say, “If we build it they will come? No, we need to build deliberately based on what we want to do, based on our focus, based on what we want. They can base on what the traffic is doing.

Myth two-If I have enough offers I’ll make money

A lot of people think that if they set up their blog and they have different banner ads for all kinds of different affiliate program, then they’re going to make money. Obviously, someone is going to click on one of those ads and I’m going to make something, right? You’re like, “well, maybe I’d make money if there is a lot of ads”. Well, that’s a very big myth that gets people off on the wrong foot. It gets them off on the wrong foot because of the fact that it’s not targeted. We’ve got to focus and target our ads for our visitors. This is what we call selling within the content or informational marketing.

What we’re doing is we are informing the market of something. So, instead of building a site, going out there and trying to do stuff, we’re going to go through and be like, “hey, you know what? I need to write this content based on this specific keyword. I need to solve this specific keyword problem in the blog post and then I need to point to my affiliate offer”.  The key is streamlining.

Myth three: It takes a long time to see results

Now a lot of people come to me and they are like, “Marcus, how do I make money really fast? I need like $5 today? And I’ll be like “can you do that? Maybe you can, maybe you cannot. But we’ve got to really focus. We’ve got to determine what it is we want. We’ve got to look at that and say,” How can I get results fast?” Like I said, when somebody is ranking 5 seconds( Again results are not typical, some people rank really good, some people take a while to rank, some people never rank usually because they’re not doing it right. But the main thing here is that we need to focus on the word “deliberate”. We need to do everything deliberate. Just before I write this note, I was doing some research on a new keyword tool that I went and look up. Then I looked up that keyword tool and I was like, “okay, let’s look up my site and look up some competitor’s site”. And I went through, and I found on my site a lot of keyword that people were coming to my site from. I went in and I focused on those words and now if I make content based on those words, I’ll start to rank even higher and start to get more.

Then I go look at my competitor site for other keywords that I want to get. I do the same thing: I start to rank for them and I start to focus. I start to really do deliberate actions. And this is stuffs that you guys can see and you know just by listening to me and looking up what’s going out there on the internet that this works. And you know this works because you see it. On every keyword term, 10 people have free rankings. Any keyword you look up in Google has 10 people who are not paying to be there. Think about that! That’s your market. Some of these keywords are generating hundreds of thousands of dollars a month. One little keyword, hundreds of thousands of dollars a month. And I want you to stop looking at keyword as some less relevant stuff: I want you to look at it as something inventory. This is your inventory where you can start getting in there and you can focus.

So we want to look at that and we want to focus and say, “does it take a long time to see results?’. No, it does not. If you do this right and you do this deliberately, you might not make a thousand dollar overnight or whatever. But again, remember that $21 was my turning point,  I was like, “wow, I can get money from the internet from something that I did”. So we’ve got to focus. We’ve got to look at this and understand what is going on and we’ve got to be deliberate.

A lot of time I’ve done paid ads to my blog made a lot of money. Currently, I spend thousands of dollars on paid ads to send to my blog to deliberately boost it up to get sales. So it’s very important.

Myth 4- I have to write every day

Another big myth people have about blogging is, “Marcus if I start a blog, do I have to write every day? Like do I have to be like that guy on Twiter and Pinterest and Instagram where they go out there and write about what I did last night, this morning and write, write, write?” No! Not at all. That’s a big myth. You don’t need to write every day to be a blogger. Most of my blogs, I think we probably write close to every day now because I’m trying to build it really big. But up until then, I probably did like ones a week or something like that. And even now, I just hired people to take my videos, makeup content, put them on the blog and we get traffic from this blog posts in a really easy way. And that’s the name of the game.

And again, remember how I said keywords are inventory. If you have a keyword and you’re like, “well, Marcus is right, I can’t rank for the word, make money online, but I can probably rank for some other keywords that get maybe 50 visitors a day.”

If a keyword gets 50 searches a day, maybe I can get 10 visitors. If I do a blog post and let’s say it takes me 45 minutes to do one blog post and it gets 15 visitors a day. If I can generate 10 cents, 20 cents or maybe 30 cents a visitor( depending on the keyword module). That is $45. Again, you can do another one in the next day and make more. Would that be 45 minutes well spent? Be honest, 45 minutes for 5 bucks, you’re like “that really sucks? Here is what you’re missing. You’re missing the fact that you do the blog post once, it ranks and you get that every day. Someday you might make 40 to 50, some days you might make nothing, some days you might make 20 bucks.

Again, results are not typical, implied guaranteed, most people make nothing. These are all hypothetical except for the stuffs that I show you that I’ve done. I only show you my stuffs. Think about this, if we do $4.50 cent times 365 which equals $1640.  Now again take a look at this in the real world way because if we got another one, if you spend another 45 minutes and amounts to like $400 a year, and another one did $3200 a year, that’s great. This is where people mess up, “do you think that $100,000 is a lot of money?. I want you to visualize and think about what $100,000 would buy, what would it do for your life? I want you to think about, how would it make things work for you? Maybe you’ll take vacations, maybe your wife could quit her job, and maybe both could quit your job. Maybe you could stop living on a fixed income, maybe you could take care of old bills.. Think about that! Is $100,000 a lot of money? Sure, $100,000 may look far away but here is the deal. Did you know that $100,000 is only a $100,000 bills? If you could find a way to make $1000 and do it a 100 times, there you go! Or it’s only 30 multiplied by 3000. So we look at this, break it down and we’re like, “okay so thirty multiplied by three thousand. That means all I’ll have to do is have thirty different blog posts about good topics that are relevant, that makes like $8 a day. I mean, think about that. If I had 30 blog posts making an average of $8 a day, done, that’s $100,000 a year.

Again, results not typical implied or guaranteed. Not every blog post will make $8, some will make way more, most of them that I see people do makes nothing. We’re going to do it how to do it the deliberate and right way that will make the odds in your favor. $8 is not that hard but the key is you’ve got to do deliberate actions every single day.

Myth 5- people will know who I am

Marcus if I’m a blogger people are going to know who I am”. That’s a big myth.  It’s a myth because people don’t need to know who you are. It doesn’t matter.  You don’t have to do video, you can outsource videos or you cannot add videos.  Lots of blog makes money without videos. Lots of blogs also make money with pen names. They are like ‘hey, I have a nickname for myself, I use some other names or I don’t even put my name”.

Myth 6- Blogging is technical

A lot of people think blogging Is a big technical nightmare. They’re like,  ” I don’t know how to set it up, I don’t know how to do plugins, I don’t even know how to get web hosting, I don’t even know how to do anything. How do I do this Marcus,  I mean the tech stuff is daunting. Here is the cool thing: the tech stuff is extremely easy with blogging.  I had a harder time posting things and uploading things to Facebook than I do blogging.  It’s literally easier than doing stuff on Facebook. You just go in, type what you want to type. If you want it red, then you highlight it red.

If you want to upload an image, you drag and drop into the box. It’s like, literally nothing. Tech is just 5% because when this is set up, you can just go in there and focus on what you need to do make it work.  And it’s really not that hard. And the plugins that we give you with my courses all do these stuffs for you.  I made it in a way that’s super easy.  I made them like point and click. So blogging is not technical at all.


The main challenge is the time that it takes to rank s site as you need to build authority for your site and the cost of developing content unless you want to write it yourself.


This student brings up a couple of myth.  Number one- it takes time to rank. It only takes time to rank if you’re going for difficult keywords. This is why people do this.

If you’re having trouble ranking your site, you’re going for the wrong keyword.  Plain and simple. That’s it.  So what I’m talking about here is deliberately going to do what works. Instead of trying to rank for how to barbeque, why don’t you rank for brisket cooking times? I guarantee that you can rank for that one pretty quick.  If not, some subcategories of it.

Another myth is the authority niche

You can actually rank sites that are brand new. I do it all the time.  A lot of our high ticket niche rank right away in the brand new site. Here is the deal: when you build this blog post and you major on the keywords, you’ll do good and you’ll start to get the bigger keyword.  Because what we’re talking about here is getting some kind of result now. Because I’m impatient and I know a lot of people are impatient. A lot of people have their shinning object syndrome where they’re out there and they’re like “well, Marcus I set up a blog, the thing didn’t talk and I’m going to go and learn facebook ads. You know what my Facebook ads didn’t work,  I spent 5 bucks, I’m going to and do email marketing’. Have you ever found yourself in the scenario of giving up because you’re not getting something fast?

So what we want to do is we want to scratch the fast itch. We want to take the fast itch and be like, can I get a ranking.  When you see your site at the top of the keyword even if I get like 19 visitors a day, you’re going to be like, “there I am at the top”. And when you see your first $10.20, 50, then that’s great. The key is no-one does this stuff long enough. Right, no one does this thing long enough to build any kind of recurrent or build any kind of stuff. I almost gave up on blogging. I felt like it was a pain in the bud.  But I’m so glad I didn’t because I’ve made a lot.

Myth 7- I have to be a good writer.

If you have read anything that I’ve written, you know you don’t have to be a good writer.  I write at the 5th-grade level, probably less than that so you don’t have to be a good writer. You just have to be good at solving a problem. We’ve got to look at that because every person who comes into your website has intent.

Every keyword someone types in Google has an intent. So look at it and say, “what is the intent? ” why did someone look up brisket cooking times? Well because they don’t want to dry up their brisket.  They don’t want to come out undercooked, overcooked or weird. Do they want to buy a barbeque,?  Probably not! Do they want to learn how to get cheap brisket? Probably not.  What do they want? They want a printable or easy to read guide to how to cook the brisket and brisket cooking times.  So how can I embed an affiliate offer in that while giving them the info? All we have to do is a focus.

Myth 8- I need a huge following

A lot of people look at this and they’re like, “well, the only people that do well with blogging have a big following or they already have a big mailing list.” Here is the deal: Everyone started where you at. Everyone woke up one morning and say, ‘I want to make money on the internet” and they went out there and set up a site and they try things out. Everyone else started from the bottom. So if you have nothing, if you’re sitting there saying, “I don’t have a blog, I don’t have a following, no one cares who I am, I have nothing”, you’re going to start from somewhere.

Now a lot of people think that the game is rigged and that things are weird. Well, the game is different to what it was back in 1997 when Google wasn’t even around but it has actually gotten easier in a lot of ways. Because, if you knew what you needed to know back then, you’ll probably be rich back then. But not. Now it’s time to jump in and say, “I’m going to do this the right way”.

Myth 9- I need to find sponsors

A lot of people looks at this, a lot of YouTube communities’ looks at this, a lot of blogging communities looks at this and they say, “Well, do I need sponsors?” Do I need to find some kind of people that come to my blog and pay me to blog? You can do that, but what I found is that the amount you get from that is very little. Because here is the deal: if someone is willing to buy an ad on your site, they are making more than you are. Plain and simple. If I’m willing to buy an ad on your site, that means I can make more money than you. So the fact of the matter is that you need to learn what they are doing and learn how to make money out of the stuff. Now what we do is blogging through affiliate marketing. We can get paid through different ways. We can get paid for someone to call our phone number; we can get paid for someone to click our link. We can get paid for someone to fill out a form. We can get paid for someone to download something, someone to try a product, someone to buy a product.

So we don’t have to focus on sponsors, we just have t focus on doing the affiliate stuff the right way. Because here is the thing: if you know about your traffic and you know what they want (which you do because it’s going to be your blog) then the sky is the limit. And you have to remember this one fact: who is in control of your income on the internet? Is it Google? Is it the affiliate network? Is it the pay per click traffic? Who is in control of it? Who is deciding how much you’re making right now? The answer is me! Yes, you are in charge. You are the reason that it’s not working. You’re the reason you’re not making what you want to make. It’s all on you.  Sure I can teach you stuffs but you have to do the stuffs. A very small percentage of people do the stuff. And those who don’t do the stuff like to complain. But if you actually do these stuffs and do them deliberately, and you do it daily or every week, or something consistent, it’s going to work really well.

You don’t make money by finding ways to make money. You only learn by finding ways to make money. But they make money by implementing what they learn and doing what they need to do in a deliberate way.

A lot of people think that it’s some outside force that’s stopping them or it’s the guru that isn’t teaching them enough, or because the search engine just don’t rank their site or the algorithm is not fair. Well, the algorithm is fair if you learn how to use it to your advantage. You might not get the big one right away. There is a guy up there who probably ranks number one for a keyword like, “mortgages “and he probably makes millions of dollars a year off the word. Are you going to beat him? Probably not! But can I set something up for a subcategory keyword and start to get traffic right now? Yes. Here is the deal: everyone looks at the business models that are huge. They look at Amazon as huge. Here is the deal: Amazon is making an insane amount of money. And if you get like 0.015 of Amazon’s income, you’ll probably be able to retire. This is why people that are seller on Amazon make money.

Because they’re getting a small piece of the part. Because you can’t sell everything Amazon sell, or rank for every keyword that you want to rank for but you can probably sell a couple of things which is not that big. I know a guy who was making six figures a month out of selling a oil diffuser. The fact is that there is a whole lot of money out there, all you need is a fraction. If you want to make a million dollar, find out a way to make $3,000 and do it 300 times.

Myth 10- All the good niches are taken

All the good niches are not taken. You can take someone over. Here is the deal: It doesn’t matter what other people make, what matters is what do you want. There are plenty of marketers that makes 10 times, 50 times, even 100 times of what I make. And I don’t care because I stay home, I enjoy the pool with the kids and I live a good life. That’s what I wanted, that’s how I set it up. Now you might want to go and conquer the world, make 50 million dollars, and that’s cool. Personally, I like the way that I have it set up. You’ve got to look at it and say “what do you want?” And you look at it like, “100,000 is really nothing in the grand scheme of things on the internet”. People make that in a month with web hosting offers and simple little offers. Again, results are not typical, implied or guaranteed. You probably make nothing but we’re going to look at it deliberately.

Myth 11- SEO is hard

SEO is hard if you’re going for the wrong keyword. If you go for the right keyword, then it’s going to be a lot easier.

Myth 12- I need lots of backlinks

You don’t need lots of backlinks. Backlinks are a myth. What we want to do if we want to start to build is links from bing. I can do better by getting a yahoo directory listing then paying someone to put a million backlinks out there for me.

You’re dealing with 4 million people every 60 seconds searching Google. Some of them search for “make money”, some of them search for “blog”, some of them search for “lose weight”, but there is also a big portion of words people haven’t even thought of.

Myth 13- It takes a long time to start

And that’s a big myth because it doesn’t. You can literally start your blog in 15 minutes. And you can start to work it, make it, and do what you need to do, which is grow, rank and deliberately target the people you want.

You can even go and get Facebook people to link back to you and get lots of traffic. I just did a Facebook promo last month where we got like 1500 new leads, made like 25 grand, really easy. Didn’t cost me a dime.


I think SEO takes time for your site to rank?

Not necessarily, if you’re going for a big keyword, yes. If you’re going for a small keyword, no!

That’s what we want to do., We want to go for all the small keywords we can get in our niche. And eventually, we’ll get the big one.

If you want to start your blog the right way, we can teach you how to start to finish. We have notes that we put from this video so go check gohubsite.com. You’ll get your web hosting (costs about $6 a month). They give you your domain name free and there is a little guide on how to choose your domain name and it is really easy. You just go there, you set it up, its simple. You’ll have a blog in 15 minutes even if you’re a technical novice.

Action Steps To Make Money Blogging

So now let’s go through some action steps to make money blogging. What are the action steps? We talked about the myth. Now, what can I do to start getting results?

Action step one- Choose a niche with good potential

What I mean by this is that some niches are what we call one-off. A one-off would be a keyword that doesn’t have a lot of sub-category keyword. We want one with a lot of sub-category keyword. Very important. So we’ve got to find a niche that has a potential, traffic, and the sub keyword we can use.

Action step two- Brainstorm all the possible affiliate offers

If I’m going for something, like a niche about “watch TV shows”, then what can I do? I can start to rank for all the shows that people want to watch and how to watch them. You can get out there and rank for all these things and there is a lot of potentials. Now what you want to do is you want to brainstorm, “what can I do”. Well, I can do “TV on PC- watch TV on your computer”, I can do direct TV or satellite, I can do Netflix, I can do cable TV leads, and maybe I can even get them to buy a smart TV.

You just have to go out there and brainstorm the affiliate offers that are good for your niche. And when you build your keyword based content, you build it with this in mind.

Action step three- Get a good domain for your niche

You want to get a good domain for your niche. For example, if I’m going for “watch TV shows”, I can do like, “how to watch TV shows online”. That’s something easy to remember. And it’s something that has my keyword in it.

Action step four- Research all the possible keywords

You’re going to research your offers, make sure it works, buy your domain, then you’re going to go through and be like, “what are the top keywords that I can go for?’ Are they watching for episodes 2 seasons 1? What are they looking for, I want to rank for them all.

Action step 5- Set up blogs according to top word

That’s a great idea. So go do that too.

Action step 6- make content for each specific keyword and drive to offers

You’re going to go out there and be like, “okay, watch strange things, season one episode 2”, then you put up your content that shows them how to watch it, then you rank.

Now be careful of trademark terms. The way that I understand trademark terms is that they don’t want you to build on something. If you’re out there building on coke, but you’re the Pepsi owner, that’s a trademark violation.

Step no 7- consistency

Do all the steps and do it over and over again and build and grow. Again, you can start your first blog at GoHubsite.com. I guarantee you’re starting in about 15 minutes. It’s super easy, we walk you through the steps and show you what works.


Here are our bonus steps

Bonus step one: start a mailing list

This is a great way to build your income. You can put a mailing list on your site using our squeeze blog plugin which makes it super easy.

Bonus step two: Create videos from content

Now you can outsource this or make it yourself. If you outsource it, just take your content, tell someone to read your blog post and then tell them what you want to say at the end.

Bonus step three: Get involved in your niche

Start to understand your niche, what they want and what they are looking for and help them. Go to other sites, see what they are doing and try to focus on that. You can go to forums to find all the type of different content to build.  You can get involved in Facebook communities, blogs, Quora, and lot more.

Bonus step four- Paid traffic for fast result

If you do paid traffic you can start to get traffic now. In like 5 minutes. You’ll have traffic. It’s not that hard to do. You just get the traffic and see what works. I like paid traffic because it’d isolate it and tell me if its actually going to work.

Bonus step five

Get a high ticket niche from Marcus…and get killer keyword report. Other reports, a site set up, personal support and guidance…and lots more,

So if you want to take that bonus step, you can go to highticketniches.com. What we do at high ticketniches.com is that we actually select a niche for you. Okay, so if you have something in mind and you say, “Marcus, I love watching TV”, we’ll find you a TV niche that I know will work.  You just have to do this step, build it up, make it work, you put your offers on, and we tell you the offers and boom! You’re ready to go. Now, you can actually see on the ticker above the timer. Those are the domains that we purchase in our last round of high ticket niches. And that is the estimated value that Godaddy said these are worth. And again you own the domain. So we’re going to give you the domain name, set up your blog, put all the technical stuff on it. So all you have to do is type and make offers on it that we’ll show you how to do and you build and grow.

Again, results of the domain, I don’t know what you’ll be able to sell them for. That is just an online appraisal service, it’s not anything fancy. It doesn’t mean you can sell them for that. Some of them, I’ve actually sold for a lot more. Again, we do this to show you the value because when you get a high ticket niche today, it’s a $997 investment, we give you the domain, we give you the niche, we show you the traffic methods, we show you the offers to run, we put some content on your site for you . e show you the keywords to go after, and we give you the support and coaching to help you make it work.

A highticketniche is a no-brainer. We want to give you way more value than what you’re putting in. The value is in the niche. And a lot of people are struggling because they don’t know the niche to get into. And the niche is everything. If you are in the wrong niche, this is not going to work. You need to be in the right niche and that’s why we do this.

What You’ll Get From High Ticket Niche

  • A Personal niche market selection from my high ticket niches
  • Top tier niche and domain name which is worth $297
  • Affiliate offers and profit center guidance
  • Easy to follow traffic plan and videos
  • Custom blog theme and logo design
  • Marcus profit plugin
  • Killer content loaded page *4
  • 90 days support and coaching.

On top of that, I’m also going to hook you up with my simple site big profit software that trains you through everything. So if you go through that and you focus you’re going to make it work.

Now if you’re on a budget and the high ticket niche is out of reach, we understand. What we have for you is our new mentorship program. Our mentorship program gives you access to some mentorship plugin, give you access to the full PDF reports of all my videos. No matter who you are, if you have one of my products, you should be in the mentorship program. So if you’ve been with me in a while and haven’t got anything check out MarcusMentor.me.

We’ve been doing this high ticket niche for a long time and we’re getting lots of results.


When the site is ready, what are the things to do after as an affiliate marketer?

You just make simple content.

How is health and fitness, is it good niche?

Health and fitness is not a niche. That’s a category. Now if you came and got a high ticket niche, and you say, “Marcus, I want something in health and fitness”, I’ll go through, find keywords, go do my research. I do the research, I find the domain name that fits and I find the keyword that you can go after.

Is there a difference between a blog and a site?

A blog is a site, but a site isn’t always a blog. A blog is like a content management system.

How much would max bounty charge once you’ve accepted?

They don’t charge anything. They just take a little bit. So it’s like, if you’re getting $10 /lead, they’re probably getting $12. I actually have about 6 good domains that I’m going to give to people.

My domain is `SMS marketing simplified as a back door to test marketing service, does this match?

You need to know how many people search for SMS marketing simplified. That’d be the question. How many people are searching for that?

I’m thinking about bringing the simple site Bootcamp back. Simple site boot camp is something I did about 5 years ago where we took a small handful of student and walk them through the entire affiliate marketing process from getting a niche to building a site to getting traffic, and everything like that.

What’s the time frame to get set up for the high ticket niche?

Right now, we’re running about 2 to 3 weeks. Sometimes sooner than that. Right now we are all cut up on the domain selection so it may not be pretty quick.  Again, you can start your first blog at gohubsite.com

How should I start blogging?

Find your niche first; watch the replay of our video with detailed notes of this course. Check out MarcusMentor.me. Sign up there and we’ll get you that.

Is Facebook a good place to cross-promoting a site?

Yes! It’s a very great place.

How do you know if you’ve got a good niche?

That’s why you need to get into high ticket niche.  We’re going to give you a good niche and we’re going to tell you why it’s good.

Can you give me some recommendations on places where I can get some info on hiring?

If you do have any question, get us on live chat

Is Gohubsite supposed to convert?

No, a Gohubsite is just for your stuff. You can make it convert but just setting up Ghubsite can make you money.

How do I find the value of the domain you’ve set up for me?

Just put a support ticket and we’ll find it for you or ask me on Livechat.

How to Use Kartra with WordPress

How to Use Kartra With WordPress + Bonus and Tutorial — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.

Kartra is a really cool software that puts you in charge of everything. Today we’ll talk about how to integrate your WordPress blog with the Kartra software.


What Does Kartra Do?

It allows you to:

  • Build a mailing list
  • Follow up with your mailing list
  • See stats and analytics (that no other software has)
  • Find out who’s responding and who’s not responding
  • Put people in different groups and categories
  • Sell stuff
  • Set up membership sites
  • Have videos
  • And more!

Kartra not only is a shopping cart with click funnels and everything, but it actually has the HTML embed codes so you can put everything directly on your site, exactly how you want it.

Now for me, as a WordPress site owner, this is a dream come true, because now I can control everything. I’ve been doing this since about 2009 with WordPress, and I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since about 1999, and this is the biggest thing I’ve ever seen.

Before now, I’ve had to do all this stuff by hand, which means since 2009 I’ve had to code everything myself, or have a programmer, get different codes from different autoresponders, have codes from different shopping carts, have buttons on different servers, etc. It’s been a mess. And what Kartra allows me to do is have everything in one spot, paste it into my WordPress, and I’m ready to go.


You can have different forms on different pages, as shown below:



You can even have forms right inside your posts.



Where Can I Find It?

You can get this software at www.KartraProfits.com.


How Do I Use It? 

Now, let’s take a closer look to see how this happens.


Different Forms on Different Pages

What if you want to have different forms on different pages?

You can see here I have my Kartra opt-in form right here on the main page.



But if we go over to the hub site page, you’ll notice there is no opt-in form here.



So let’s say that I want to add a different opt-in form here. I would go to Kartra, go to the My Forms page, click on the form that I want, and I can go get the code.




I want to use this fancy little website one here. I click “Get code – JavaScript” and copy the code.



Then I go into my website and find the Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin. I add a new widget inside the plugin.



If I like, I can put some teaser text inside the Contents section to get visitors to opt-in, or I can leave it blank if I just want to use what’s on the form.



Under Contents, it asks me if I’m using Aweber. I select “No” and paste the code into the text box.



Then I can choose the page where I want the form to be displayed. I do that by finding the Pages section and entering the page I want to use.



I scroll down and hit the “Update” button.



Now I have an opt-in right there, and it’s a separate one from what’s on my main page.




Order Forms

Maybe instead of an opt-in form, you want to allow someone to order something directly on your site. So on Kartra, go to the My Products page, and select the product that you want visitors to order.

Let’s say you want people to order the Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin. This will give you the code to display the order form on your page.






Then you copy the code and paste it into your own Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin on your website.

If you don’t want to embed it into a post, you can display it as a widget on the side of the page. Go to the Sales icon on your Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin.



In the Pages section, select the page where you want the form to be displayed. Then paste the code in the Contents section and hit “Update”.



Now you have an order button, and people can order the product right on your blog.




Order Form Button Pop-Up

Instead of displaying the order form itself, you might want to just have a button that leads to a pop-up order form.

Back on Kartra, go again to the My Products page, and select the product that you want visitors to order. We’ll still use the Squeeze Blogs Pro example.



Now hover your cursor over “Edit”. Click on “Edit product”.



A pop-up will display confirming that you selected this product. Click “Next”.



On the next page, you will move through the Basic Info, Pricing, and Contents sections. Keep verifying the information and clicking on “Save and next” until you arrive at the Checkout section.





Then you’ll arrive at the Checkout section. Under “Your checkout page look & feel”, click the “Change” button next to it.



You can choose how you want the form to show up. Select “Overlay pop up window on your site”. Select “Confirm” on the top right corner of the box, and select “Save and next” at the bottom of the page.



Keep verifying the rest of the information, clicking on “Save and next” at the bottom until you get to the end.





Now the product has been reconfigured to display as a pop-up window. You just need to get the new code to paste onto your site.

Go to the My Products page and select the product you want to display (The Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin).



Click on “Checkout”.


Copy the new checkout code for the pop-up button.



Paste the code into your Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin, just as you did before.

In your Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin, you can decide which pages or which posts you’d like the button to be displayed on.



Here you can see the new button on the sidebar of one of my site pages.



When someone clicks on the button, a secure window pops up for the customer to purchase the product.

How To Build An Authority Niche Site for Affiliate Marketing

Download Your 31 Profit Tasks PDF Here


Turn A Small Niche Site Into A Super Profitable Authority Site By Doing This

Hey guys, it is Marcus here. We’ve got a lot of stuffs to cover today. We are going to go over the big question. The big question is: what is the best way to get started with affiliate marketing as a beginner. Is it to start a simple little affiliate site? Or is it to make a big authority site?

Today we’re going to cover that in detail. We’re going to talk about the difference between authority sites and simple affiliate sites. We’re going to cover the difference between these. If you’re reading this for the first time: this is a script for our webinar on YouTube. You can go over to our YouTube channel: Click the little subscribe button and click the bell notification icon so that you’ll get my latest videos when I come out with them and you get a little notification when we go live every Wednesday, 10 am eastern standard time and sometimes on Friday, 10 am, eastern standard time.

Have you heard the difference between an authority site and the simple site? I know a lot of people come here and are attracted to my type of teaching because I teach things very simple. A lot of people are like, “Marcus, you’re kind of simple”, well, that’s just how my brain works. I keep things simple; I like them easy and simple to understand. And I like them to be easy to go through.

You might have heard me talk about, “hey, you know what? Set up a simple one to five page website and you can make money online”, Here is a disclaimer on that: By reading my article, watching my videos, training, webinars, buying my courses and anything that you get from me, there is no guarantee of success. We all know that the average affiliate marketer makes absolutely nothing. But we also know that there are some affiliate marketers over there that do earn a living online (Me being one of them). I’ve been doing this for about 18 to 19 years making a full time living from the comfort of my own home doing exactly what I’m going to show you.

It is very important that you understand up front that what we’ll be teaching you is not guaranteed. Nothing is guaranteed in life but I believe if you follow the instructions, if you follow the steps, you can get results and build on it.

What Is The Best Way To Start?

Is it to go out there, find a niche, put up a little site and let it do its thing like I’ve done many times( like the one-page website that I did that made over 7 figures online)-  Is that the best way to go? Or is authority sites the best way to go? (Where you go there and find your niche, build a big site, start to capture all the traffic, really solve that niche and you start to build.

Well, I’ve got to tell you that the answer is neither. A lot of people talk about the simple site, lots of people talks about authority sites, which one is best? The answer is that neither is best. What is best is to test your market. What we want to do is we want to test the market. This is why i like simple site. What I like to do is I like to set up simple 3 to 5 page blog, set it up, get some traffic, test it out. When we test that out, we try to see what’s going. For example, let’s say I want to go into a niche- like promote something like clickfunnles or katra. And I go I there, and I’m like, “okay, I found this niche about people who want to set up a blog”. Now, I can set up a simple little 5 pages (you can probably put this up in a matter of a day if you wanted to and follow instructions).

What you’re going to notice is that when you test your market, you’re going to send traffic to your simple site. If I want to go and say, “Well you know, today I’ve got 100 people to my site and those 100 people want to learn how to set up a blog” They went to my site and get my stuffs. (Again, results are not typical, implied or guaranteed. We don’t know what you’re going to get that’s why we need to test the market.)

So we go out there. We test the market; we take a look at it and check what happened. If I go here and I’m like, “hey, you know what? I’m buying traffic or I’m getting traffic free and perhaps I made $90 that day”.

Now I will look at that traffic and I analyse it and say, “Is this something I can build on? Can I do more with this?”  Years ago when I first started the site, about abs workout (which obviously I don’t take my own advise), I built it and within couple of weeks, we were making $120-$160 a day. Sold about 3-4 products a day on that site. When I looked at that, I said, “is this something I want to build more?’. The problem with sticking with simple site method is the fact that you’re not really growing and you’re only volatile. If someone comes in and out beats you or someone comes in and the offer changes (or whatever), you’re kind of left out to dry. For example, the site that makes 7 figures, that offer is no longer around anymore. I didn’t build a big authority site in that niche. Therefore, back then, I made a lot of money, and now I have nothing. So, we’ve got to look at that and say, “how is it going to work?”. Now what we want to do is we want to take a look at the simple site that shows promise. Is it something that shows promise, can I get a sale, can I get interest, can I build a list and can I do something with this traffic? Now, when I set that up and it looks good and promising, then I switch over to an authority site. The only two reasons that you want to make an authority site is:

  1. You know the market- You’re like, “okay, I know this will work, If I go into web host training I know it’d work, if I go into how to build a blog or WordPress training, I know that’s going to work”, All I have to do is to do the work, take the time to build it up and I have an authority site”. Once you have an authority site, what will happen is that your traffic is going to grow, you’ll have extra content, you’re going to build a mailing list and people are going to come back to you.

So the idea here is to start with the simple affiliate site. Start it out, get it out there, get some traffic, and see what’s going on. Does it look promising? If it looks promising, then we go into our authority site. Now what we’re going to do in the rest of this training is I’m going to go through the steps that you want to take to take your site from small to an authority site.

Now when we’re talking of authority sites, you’re not going to be the authority site for an affiliate, make money. You’re not going to be the authority site for lose weight or mortgage. You’re going to be the authority site in some kind of sub-category of your market. So get it out of your mind that you’re going to be the huge authority on whatever you’re promoting. And get it in your mind that you want to do what I call, “Majoring the minor and start to build slowly based on things you can get”

Now, personally for me, I’m a very impatient person and I like results fast. I like to get results super-fast; I like to see what’s going on. I want to see sales coming in, I want to see people coming in. I want to get something in return in a fast way. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to look at that and say, “Okay, well, if I was to go for barbeque niche, I’m going to take a look at this niche and say, “what can I do?”.

First and foremost, you want to look at your subcategory words because you’re probably not going to be ranked for the word, “barbeque”. But you can build an authority site on something like “smoking time brisket”.

So now we have defined it . Now “brisket smoking times” gets a lot of searches online ( I think the last time I looked it up, it was like 40, 000 searches a month). Now what I’ll do is I’d set up a site that gets something like “brisket smoking time, or brisket. com).

Next thing that I’d want to do is I’d want to find my affiliate offer (how am I going to get paid), Now we’re going to look at this and say, “what am I going to do? Chances are these people probably already had a smoker. Now you can sell them a better smoker but that’s a stretch. Now we’ve got to remember the intent of our market. The intent of the market is the dude is got a brisket in his fridge and he’s like “I want to smoke it and I want it to be good”. Now just to clarify, we’re talking about smoking in the barbeque brisket. So we’re like okay, “brisket smoking time”, we’ve got the affiliate. So what are we going to? Is there any toolbar? We’re going to look at all different affiliate offers for barbeque for cooking different stuffs like that.

Now one of the things you can look out for your niche (for example in the barbeque) is Adsense. Because a lot of companies run ads run ads and they pay for ads using the Adsense program where you can get paid. So we do Adsense as well. So what I’d do is I’d make a list of those that say, “Brisket smoking time”, and set up my page. May I’d make a little video. Now you can outsource this if you want (it doesn’t matter). Now you make your videos and you’re like, “hey, cool, check it out, ’I’ve got a perfect brisket. Now if you want to know the times that I cooked this, it varies depending on the size of the brisket, what the weather is like outside, what the smokers are, and everything like that, e.t.c

What I’ve done is that I went through and put you together in a PDF download report. You can download it, and I bet you if you follow the instructions, everything is going to go well.  All you’ve got to do to get that is to put name and email in the box. I’m also going to send you some barbeque stuffs for joining my list, and then you’re going to go.

What I’d first do is to test it out on page traffic.

What I’d do is that I’ll test this out. How many cards. Why? Because I want to control the experience. When I do paid traffic, I can isolate the exact keyword that I want

I can bring them to the exact page that I want and I can now monitor and say, well, out of 100 people who came to my site, 47 joined my mailing lists.

Now if this looks promising ( if I do this and I get 47 opt-in, or if I do 300 clicks and I get 150 opt-ins), then I can go in and say,  “okay cool, how much did I make?”

. Well, I gave away 50 toolbars, and that made me $3 each and that’s $150. Again, results are not typical, implied or Guaranteed ( read the disclaimer if you have any questions about this) . So here we  go, we’re like “okay cool, I’ve got 150 on my list, 50 to download and maybe one of them bought the barbeque tools and I made $60 or something like that. Now once I look at this and go through, I’m like, “okay, cool this looks good, this looks promising”. Once it looks promising, I keep it running on pay per click. Why wouldn’t you keep something running that’s making money? Then what I do is I go over here and start to build out an authority site.

 Now with my authority site, what I’m going to do is I’m going to go for free traffic. I’m going to go for Youtube group,  Facebook groups. I’m going to go for all kind of different things, I’m going to make PDF and be helpful to the market. Okay, the goal here is to be helpful to the market but be helpful in a way that drives them to things that they want to get. Like you guys read my articles and you’re like,  “Marcus your articles are great, I learn a lot, wonderful! And you’re going to take a look and be like, “well, I’m going to check out this new Marcus mentor me program he’s got over at Marcusmentor.me, I’d check that out because his stuffs helps me and I want to buy it” So you’re going to do the same thing.  You’re going to be like, “okay, the brisket guy helped me out so I’m going to want to buy the things that he recommends”. It is called influential marketing or content-based marketing.

How many clicks is enough or promising in testing the 300 clicks?  

Okay,  what you’ll want to do is well,  if I got 2 people to opt-in, no,  that’s not good! And if I got 150 people to opt-in and no one bought anything or download anything, then I’m going to revamp and say, why?

If you get the numbers and you’re like “okay,  I’m getting 10% or 30% to fill out the email form to opt in,” that’d be great,  that would be wonderful. And again, it depends on the niche. Obviously with web hosting it’s going to take a while to get a sale.  By a while, I mean like 100 clicks to get a sale in most market.

How much should 300 clicks cost in Adword to be profitable?

Good question!  And the simple answer is well; it should be less than what you’re making. A lot of people come to me and they’re like “Marcus, I don’t want to pay a dollar a click”, and I’m like “well, personally I can pay a thousand dollar per click if I know I can make $2,000”. It doesn’t matter, it’s all relative.  So you got to look at that. Now in the barbeque market, I’ll be expecting to get clicks from anywhere from 3 to 20 cents a click. That will be the sweet part there. That would be a little high for that market but if I had good converter then it’d work.

Now for this example,  if I’m making $150 +$60 on that,  then I’d want to be 220 is my initial upfront income then I’d want to be less than that and that would be 22 cents per click divided by 3. And that would be around 7 cents. Again, that’s not a guarantee that you’ll make anything. You have to test this out.  You have to be willing to go out there and do this. Now once you look at that, you’re like “okay this is great “. Here are the things that you want to do to build out your authority site. So what I’m going to do is that at the end, you can check out Marcusmentor.me program, get our course at the marcusmentor.me. It’s a simple course that I put together for people who are like,  “I like your stuff but I wish to get something where you can help me out”. Now what we’re going to do is we’re actually going to make a video on each of these topics. So there are 31 different videos on money task. We’re going to take you from a simple site to an authority site and if you do this and you tweak it and you test it, you’re going to get some results. By results, I don’t know if you’d make money, you might not.  But you might at least see what the market is doing, see what people click on and see what people do. And that’s the starting point of making this work. Let’s go over those now.

And again, if you want to ask exactly how to do them, how I do them every day in my business, you’re free.  Obviously the reason why there are 31 is that it has something to do everyday. So if you could do something every day for 15-20 minutes even half hour every day, you can start to build on this and grow big.  So let’s take a look at some of these tasks that would take us from the simple affiliate site over to the arms of the authority site.

  1. Set up a new blog

Okay, so if I have this on pay per click and its working and it’s running and I’m happy and great.  I can even use the same domain on free traffic or I can use the separate. For me personally I like to separate them because if you want to be an authority site,  you’d want multiple domains in your niche(maybe one for free traffic, one for paid traffic, one for YouTube). So the first thing you can do is to set up a new blog, make it simple and go for something like brisket cooking times.

  1. Create content

The second thing you can do is to create content. So if you’re sitting there and you’re like ‘Marcus, what do I do? “.because a lot of people come to me and be like “Marcus,  I want to make money online “. And their life looks like all I do is to learn how to make money online”. If all you’re doing is studying how to make money and you’re studying affiliate marketing, that’s not just how to do it.  

If I get a book about how to exercise or about how to get 6 packs abs and how to work out but I never go to the gym,  and I never do anything else other than reading the book, then I’m not going to get any result I want. So what we’re going to do is to move from the realm of theory and ideas and wants into the real me if actually taking actions. Now one of the actions that you can take (which we’ve talked about)  is setting up a new blog.

The second one is content for your blog. What you’d do is look at your sub-category keywords and like,  “what’s up? What kind of content can I make”. For example, maybe people are looking for, “brisket smoking times 5 pounds or brisket smoking times for barbeque,  or whatever”. You’re going to look at your subcategory words, see what’s out there before you start to make your content for your blog, and you will base the content on what they are looking for. And again, make good content and go in and start to add your affiliate stuff.  So I’ll make content and I’ll be like, “well, you want to get your brisket up to 85 degrees? You’ll probably want a thermometer. Here is the thermometer and by the way when your brisket is done, you might want to use a Robb or seasoning “. And I got the Robb and seasoning from recipe toolbar.

Do you recommend using free content for your content?

Well, I don’t know what you mean by free content. You mean, taking from other places?  If that’s the case I always say no. I recommend creating your own content. The reason is that the search engine like it,  people are going to like it. Or when you create your own content or outsource it the way that I show you, you can lead people into what you want them to buy it click or do in an easier way.  If you’re using content, it’s not going to be that good.

  1. Write an email to a list

The third thing we can do every day to start to build this up is we can go through and we can write an email to our list. And again, you want to look at your mailing list like you’re the helpful guy . So if you join my mailing list about “how to cook brisket’. Now I’m posed as the guy who wants to help you cook brisket. It’s like a simple agreement. You’re like, “okay,  you came to my site, therefore I probably know more than you about brisket. Therefore you’re going to watch for my emails about the cooking and you’re going to go in and be like, “Maybe I can go in and write an email to this people”. And again, your email needs to be something helpful. A lot of people go out there and all they do is that they email affiliate offer. That’s fine and it makes money but It eliminate your list and you’re not going to make as much.

The reason why you’re not going to make as much is that when you guys see emails from me,  you’re looking for content. If I just hit you with an email asking you to sign up for this and that, you’re going to think “Marcus is not as helpful as I thought, maybe I’ll unsubscribe”. Writing an email is easy, you sit down and you’re like “hey,  I found a cool way to make a brisket”.

So your email is going to drive them back to your authority blog or your authority site. It’s like recycling traffic which is really cool.

  1. Make a simple infographic

The fourth thing that you can do is make a simple infographic. If I have a infographic and I’m like “okay, all I’ve got to do is go to clip art and get some images that I have the right to use, make a little image, talk about the graphics and I have a link back to my site. Now I got content, I got email, I got infographic and I can even send the infographic out to my mailing list. I’ll be like “hey I can make this infographic that you can print out”

  1. Find Top 10 sub-category

Another thing that you can do is find top 10 subcategories. So you’ll go into Google Adwords tool, you type in brisket, you look at what the subcategory words are.  Once you start to build this up, what’s going to happen is that your site is going to be in authority and you’re going to rank really fast. And again, let me ask you, how hard is this really? Does anyone think this is ridiculously hard to do? You can just go ahead and learn about the brisket stuff. Go to the store, buy 3 to 4 brisket.  Cook them in different ways, feed your neighbors.

Tech stuff is my downfall!

Well, I’m going to tell you, if you struggle with tech stuffs; go up to marcusmentor.me and get the course (they teach you the tech, you get the plugins). Follow my steps, which is extremely easy.

How do you test your site on Adword with your affiliate link because Google doesn’t like Affiliate sites, do we use other traffic sources?

Google doesn’t mind affiliate sites if you providing value. What Google and the other search engine want is a good user experience. So if you’re building on the word, “Brisket cooking times”, and you’re trying to sell them a new barbeque, that’s not good. They’re like “dude, I want to learn the cooking times, I don’t want a barbeque”. If you have a site about the cooking times and you teach people stuffs, they are going to like that. So always focus on the intent, focus on what the market wants, and focus on the delivery.

If you’re sitting there waiting for perfection, you’re not going to get anything done. But if you get something done, follow the rules, don’t be shady, don’t be weird, and don’t mess with people, if you do it ethical then if you mess up its okay. You miss 100% of the shot you don’t take, that’s the quote by one of the greatest hockey guy of all time.

He’s like, “go make the shot if you don’t make the shot you’re not going to get anything.” Again, not everything is going to work. Some of the videos that I put up, they flop. some of the videos that I put up they kick butt. Like the one I did last year that is over 130k views which is small but to me, I can make a lot out of that.

What does it take to get approved by Google Adword?

A good website and legitimate information it’s actually pretty easy.


  1. Create a new blog post

You go out there and you’re like, ‘I made the content for my blog now I’m going to make a blog post”. Again, you put your blog post about the keywords that you found.

  1. Make a new video

Video freaks a lot of people out. However, there are people out there that are outsourcing videos that do really well. So if you need to do that, outsource it. I mean your content that you wrote for your blog, send it to someone you’re outsourcing to. You say, “Read this, and give me the audio”. It won’t cost you more than $5, maybe $30 if it’s long. They read the article on audio, they send you the audio file, and you just put some slides to it. You can even just put the audio on the screen.

  1. Make an audio

Depending on your niche- If your niche warrants an audio like in the personal development space, audios are going to work great. You can literarily make audios of quotes that people had. I know a guy who is a YouTuber and all he does is to us other peoples content. And he’s goes like millions of subscribers, make a lot of money. All he did was “Hey, here is the top 10 things that Tony Robin says”., So you can do an Audio and post it on Podcast sites.

  1. Make a list of downloads

Think about this: If you’re in a market like home renovation. You can go and find renovation articles, links to the PDF and make a list. You’ll be like, “here is a link to the PDFs”. That’s a value because it is something that is helping someone do something easier. We forget that value can be something simple. We forget that Google’s value is the fact that they link you to pages that you want.

They didn’t make the content; they just index the content in a way that works. And boom! One of the biggest companies in the world because of that. Facebook, they are using your content like you write contents for Facebook. You go on, and you’re like, “My dog went swimming in the pool today, here is the picture”. You just made Facebook content. They are getting traffic because of you. You can do downloads or helpful site. Like there is a guy here who said, ‘where do you go to get outsources?”. That guy who answered his question could make a list of sites to go outsource on and he can use his affiliate links. And now he’s got a piece of valuable content he can put on his site, he can make a PDF; he can make an infographic.  

  1. You can make a step by step list

This is like you want to make a blog: step 1, step 2, and step 3. Put your steps and show them how to do whatever it is they are searching for. And you can do this on all types of keywords like, “steps to making the perfect chicken, or even steps to setting up your barbeque the right way”. I want you to image what your site will look like if you just did one of this a day in 31 days. Instead o going out there looking for the fast way to make money, you can just go out there and say, “I just want to add value to the market every day in the form of a list, audio, video, whatever.

  1. Buy a solo ad

You can go out there and find someone who has a mailing list about barbeque and you can buy an ad in their mailing list and can drive a bunch of traffic to you in literarily like, overnight.

  1. Answer questions

You can go out there and you can answer people’s questions. You can be like,  ” hey I’ve got this site about brisket, do you have any questions? ” They put questions on the site, you answer it in the form of a blog post or a reply and you make sales and get more traffic. I have a forum where we go through and people ask questions, I provide answers,  they rank in the search engines, build me up as an authority site and gets traffic every single day.

  1. Submit a press release

One of the ways that’s very easy to get the stuffs going and fast is you can do a press release. The purpose of a press release isn’t so much like get channel 9 news to pay attention to you; it’s to get big sites linked to you. So better than backlinking is press releasing. So we can set up a press release that goes like,  ” here is a site about barbeque and we’re going to teach you how to make brisket, Marcus has the greatest barbeque”.

  1. Make an opt-in page

So let’s say you have your niche and you’re like, “well you know I know a lot of people are actually looking at brisket Robb so now I can make an opt-in page and say put your name and email to get my brisket Robb

  1. F,Q,FB,INSTA Backlinks

A lot of people are going to talk to you about buying backlinks. You don’t do that, that’s just stupid and it can get you in hot water.  What you want to do instead is you want to build backlinks from things that are relevant. So I can go out and do backlinks on Facebook groups to get traffic.  I can go answer questions on Quora or I can go to different blogs only niche and I can answer questions on blogs. I can go on forums and answer questions. Literally it wouldn’t take you more than 15 minutes. People are likely to come to your site because they like your answer and you can make sales.

  1. Interview someone

Let’s say there is a top dude in the brisket area and you write a mail like “hey I want to feature you on our site. Would you be willing to do an interview? Again, look at this as something you can do every day.

I want to give you actionable steps that you can use to build your site from a simple little blog to an affiliate big authority site.

  1. Restructure your content

Can you take anything you’ve done so far and restructure it.  Can you take your interview and maybe make a video, podcast or an audio? Can you transcribe it and make a PDF? There’s lot of ways you can do this and I hope this isn’t hard.


  1. Set up ads for your site

Ads would be like an affiliate ads.  What I use is my smart affiliate ads plugin. The smart affiliate ads plugin install on your blog, you put some images and boom, you got awesome looking ads where people click. Our clicks through rates are great with that.  You can also set up a new set of ads.

  1. You can create Webinar notes

So like you can do a live stream or a Webinar and you can create little notes for it.  Again, this one is kind of advanced so if you haven’t done a Webinars before, don’t worry about it.  But a good way to connect with your market is to have a live stream.

  1. Test your market

You can test with webinars. You can test with pay per click. Now you can test with pay per click on a new keyword. What if you have a site and you’re like “I want to get all the people that want to buy hosting or clickfunnels or katra”, I can go test a new keyword.

  1. Make an excel calculator

Like the home improvement niche, you can do a home improvement loan calculator on excel.  People download this. They loved this stuff. I made a budget calculator on excel and it worked really well. For example, if you’re in the brisket market, you can do one to calculate your brisket cooking times.

  1. Set up a simple forum

You can literally make a barbeque forum for a barbeque niche (if you’re in that one) and people will talk about one.

  1. Make a member site

What if you have a member site on how to make a barbeque? Isn’t that a great idea


  1. Write a letter

You can write a letter about barbeque. I’m the brisket guy and I’ve been trying to make perfect brisket and I keep running it.  What I figured out are this 5 things,…. “. So you write a letter, send it to your list and boom! I’ve made lots of money making sales letters to my markets.

  1. Organise info

Does anyone notice that our whole job as an affiliate marketer is organizing information?  I mean, organize things that help people. I’m like, “okay, how do you make your background on your website different? “. I make a little theme, I compile the info and go learn how to do it and I compile the info and send to the things that I want to use to make money.

What if all you did was watch training videos on how to do things and you’re like “all I do is to organize the info”. Let’s say you’re in the marriage counseling niche. You go and watch different things, you learn what people want and you organize the info. You’ll be like “hey,  I studied the top 50 experts in the market and here is the top 3 things that they said to avoid divorce”. “I studied the top internet marketers and here is what they said that you need”. So all you need is to organize the info.

  1. Run a banner ad

Running a banner ad does two things.  

  1. I can get cheap traffic to my site and make sales. Great!
  2. I can learn what my market wants to click on. What we want to do is we want to click this stuff and we want to learn our market all the way. So if you want to build the authority site, we are going to go through, learn about the market and what they clicked on.

We can go to other sites in our market and learn what they want.


Brief questions on what we’ve done so far

What exactly is a banner ad?

It’s an image ad on a website. We actually have a video on my channel about how to do banner ads. I would advise you to watch that.

Would you recommend starting straight off with an Aweber or wait till you know your site is getting the traffic?

It’s up to you.  If you want to build a list, then start off with that.

What if you set up your site before this videos and you didn’t get a neutral website domain?

You want a domain about a topic. So if I want one for brisket I’ll do one for brisket.

  1. Find stuffs to share with your list

Maybe you found a good barbecue video, you can share with them.  Don’t link directly to it, link them to your blog and you can share that video. A lot of people don’t look at the simple things that they can do every day that makes a difference. If you do these simple things every day in a deliberate way, it’s going to start to build over time.

  1. Find PDF for your market

You can go out there and find different PDFs and reports . What if I go out and I find out 10 PDF that can help you with something? I want you to look at this because a lot of these stuffs are native to the way that people react and respond. Like if I was your friend on Facebook and you’re like “Marcus is pretty cool because he always sends me videos on how to do the laundry”

  1. Write a book chapter

You can actually take and compile all your stuffs into a book. You can take your blog post and turn them into a book.  It works really well.

  1. Sell from a new angle

You can sell from a new angle. You can go out, listen to your market and find out what they want. You can find out different angles to sell something.  Perhaps you can sell a barbeque down the line because you’re building up the authority site.

  1. Outsource content

Yes, that’d be a great idea.

If you want to get my video series, check out Marcusmentor.me. This is our coaching program.  It’s a low-end coaching program designed to get you in this. You can get the plugins, videos or notes of all of my webinars.  So if you like my videos, that’s the best place to go. In addition, we will give you all the tools that you need. All of my students,  it doesn’t matter if you’re in the simple site, or high ticket niche. I’d recommend that you go for the marcusmentor. Me site because it’d give you an extra edge and it’s going to be your support. It is a monthly thing and you can cancel whenever you want by going to pcmoneymaking.com ( that’s our support site).

Do you get this course with the high ticket niche?

No, you do not. This is separate and it’s something I want you to join if for anything but to get the notes of webinars.

Have you ever used the feedback form for your website to get a better understanding of what your market wants?

Yes. I actually used the feedback form several years ago.

Looking for a video on the squeeze page plugin?

Go on simple site. Com and get the video. There is a video of all the plugins.

If I’m having difficulties with conversions, is that something you can help with?

Yes, one of the benefits of being in our mentor course is that you can actually submit your site for review. So if you go through and you’re like “Marcus, I’ve got a site but no one is signing up”. You can go in there and say,  “Take a look at my site” and we’ll take a look at it for you.

How do you use the subcategory words to rank?

Well, you want to find words you know you can rank for. You don’t want to go for one that’s too competitive.

And again, once you sign up for the mentor program, 0p get detailed videos on all this. Some of them will be live, some won’t.

You can do that on Marcusmentor.me

Is the site reviewing a free service?

No, because I get so many reviews daily, I can’t humanly possibly answer them all. So if you want a site review, sign up for our mentor me program at marcusmentor.me and submit your site for review. I’ll take a look at it. As long as you’re a member you can ask for all the reviews that you want.

Email affiliate marketing- how much profitable nowadays?

Way more profitable! If you have any mailing list, you can profit if you know what you’re doing.

Can you capture emails without an autoresponder if you’re not ready to market?

Yes, you can but don’t. I think on our sites, you can go to affiliatedude.com and you can get our free trial of an autoresponder. So give yourself a free trial.

How many simple sites should your authority site link to?

None! They should be one and the same.

My goal here in the mentor program is to show you how to make it work and literarily, it’s less than the price of a cup of coffee a day. If you have videos showing you how to do each of these tasks every day and you just start doing them, and you come back like, “Marcus, I did this task and it did rank but I’m not getting sales”. You can ask questions like that in the mentor me program and we’re going to help you.

What is the minimum amount of pages or post an authority site should have?

There is no answer to that.  It depends on your keywords.

Does your high ticket niche have this program?

No, it’s separate.

How does GDPR affects opt-in?

It’s only for U.k. people as I understand it. We’re going to have a video on that. I don’t think it’s going to affect it much if you do it good.

Everyone should be in the mentorship program. It’s inexpensive and there is no excuse.

I have a breakdown of our courses. So if you want to learn about our courses, you can see them at Marcusmentor.me. You can actually go there and sign up.
