Today we’re going to talk about what it actually takes to quit your job and start blogging full-time.
I want to ask you a question. If you could set up a simple blog in about an hour, and profit up to $32.17 or more every day from that blog, how many blogs would you set up?
I’ve made millions of dollars in affiliate commissions for simple sites I’ve made about things like the lottery, smiley faces, cheap gas prices, and mortgage calculators. Compare this with what the other guys are talking about. Compare this with the sites that they have, and a lot of them are in a lot more “buyer” niches or “make money” niches.
The cool thing here is the fact that I made tons of money with little bitty niches that no one thought I could make money in. Right now, as an entrepreneur, as someone who wants to make money blogging, you can say which market you want to go into.
How I Got Into Blogging
The way that I got into blogging was only after I learned direct response and I learned how to convert traffic.
In 2006, I made one of my most profitable sites. It made over 6 figures, and one year it made around $650,000. You might be thinking of that and saying that you can’t really do that on a blog. But you can. It’s your job to take your visitors where you want them to go.
This site made money because it was focused. Because it was based on human nature. You have to remember that no matter what, the people coming to your sites and your blogs are people. They respond. They click. This is based on human nature, and getting people to do what they want. And this works in any niche.
So it was 2006, and I had just made this site, making millions of dollars on the internet. I was on track that year for my first million-dollar-year with affiliate marketing.
I like to stay on top of all the new stuff. When Facebook came out, I thought, “How do we use this for marketing?” When YouTube came out, I thought, “How do we use this for marketing?”
Guys, remember that I’ve been doing this for almost 20 years now. And in that year, 2006, everyone was talking about blogs. They were like, “Blog this, blog that,” and I started to get tired of the hype. But then I thought, “Okay, let’s look into this.”
And I asked myself this question:
Can someone actually, really, seriously make a living blogging?
If you think about what a blog is, a lot of us have a certain idea about it. You think of this person who blogs about their eggs, and puts pictures on Instagram of their soup. And you think, “I don’t care about your eggs and your soup. I don’t want to do that.” Right? And that’s not really what blogging is.
So I asked myself, can someone make money doing this?
And more importantly, do you have to write every day, like those lame people on Twitter and Facebook who tweet or post every time they leave their house?
I was used to setting up simple little websites and banking $5, $10, $15, $100, or even $1,000 a day off of each website. The last thing I wanted to do was set up some huge content site. And I just couldn’t set up a blog like my simple websites. Those took like 45 minutes to an hour to build, and they raked it in big—sometimes they even made money the same day.
So there I was, listening to countless videos, teleseminars, webinars, reading al the e-books, and buying all the courses. I had serious info overload and burnout, and I was done. I threw in the towel. I thought to myself, “I’m done. This sucks. I’m not going to do it.” I was feeling so tired of trying to get my head around this blog thing. It made me sick. So I gave up right then and there. I said, “I don’t need a blog.”
I was on track to single-handedly make a million bucks, with no blogs, no employees, no outsourcing. Just some little sites that look like a fifth grader made (which mine still do, if anyone’s paying attention). And I was raking it in.
Then 2007 came. Again, I was sitting in my office and thinking, “I don’t need a blog. I’ve got it handled.” We did like $750,000 that year.
And then 2008 came around. Hmmm. Some of my sites started getting quality scored, slapped, and all that other stuff. I was making a decent income. We were in the mid-six figures. I thought, “Perhaps I’ll revisit this blog thing and see if Google likes them a bit better. I like free traffic.” (And free traffic is good if you know how to use it.)
Then it was 2009. I started freaking out. I had just bought a big, giant house. I was used to making $1 million a year, and now my sites were down to $250,000 profit. I thought, “That’s not bad.” I mean a lot of people would probably be happy with a quarter of a million dollars. But it wasn’t what I was used to. It wasn’t what I was planning on.
So in the summer of 2009, I thought more about blogs, and I decided I was going to do them on my own terms. No posting daily, no lame stuff. I didn’t really want to be the next Perez Hilton. I just wanted to earn a decent income from home. Was that too much to ask?
Later that year, I discovered the WordPress blogging platform. And I was able to set up my first blog in about 15 minutes. (And you can do that, too.) It wasn’t facy, it wasn’t beautiful, but I made it, and I was proud.
Now, little did I know, the next day the darn thing ranked on the top of Google in like 12 hours. I was like, “What? Wait a minute. I didn’t have to submit it? I didn’t have to wait it, and I didn’t have to wait three months, or six months?” I put the blog up, and I ranked number one.
I had no meta tags, no SEO stuff, I didn’t submit the site, didn’t do directory listing or backlinks. And I was like, “What the heck is going on here?” I didn’t even plan on it. I just wanted to set up a blog, and boom. The thing was in Google. It was getting traffic.
Here’s the thing: Google actually likes these blogs.
So I got some new paid traffic accounts, and tested the blogs there, and it worked. Some of them got leads and made money almost instantly, which was crazy. Now, instead of the one website stuff, with sites like the smiley face website which took a long time to set up (I had to do codes, put pages on, have to save stuff and upload it), I could actually bang out a little blog in like 12 minutes and get it ranked on the search engine like the next day. Which is crazy!
I could go find a keyword and get ranked. (Which is the key. Don’t go after a market, go after a keyword. If you go after the right keyword, you could get ranked so quickly. Because if there are only 9 people competing for a keyword, what are the chances you’re going to be in the top 10?
That’s exactly what it is. If there are only 9 people, and your site is number 10, you are guaranteed a top 10 ranking. Just because no one else is trying to rank for it.
So there I was, getting these things going. But there was one little hiccup, and it was actually a big hiccup.
Building websites the way I used to gave me the freedom to have whatever I want, wherever I wanted it. The key to making these little affiliate marketing sites work was all in the conversion. But the challenge now was getting my blog to do what my sites did, because that’s why they made money.
Here is what we needed. This is my website conversion checklist. But now, we have to use it on blogs. We’re going to ask ourselves these questions.
Blog Conversion Checklist and Guide
- Who am I trying to each?
Are you trying to reach people on Google searching for “how to lose 10 pounds”? Or looking for people on Google searching for “hospital scam”? Are you trying to reach people looking for “layouts”? What are you looking for?
- What do I want them to do?
Obviously, you want to make money. So you have to get an audience somehow. Do you want people to join your mailing list? Click an affiliate ad? Watch a video? What do you want them to do?
- What does my ad or site headline promise?
You have to look at what your site ad or your headline promises. When you go to Google and you search your site, what does it say? The little ranking that shows up in Google, what does it promise people? “Download this free thing”, “Learn how to do affiliate marketing”, “figure out the meaning of life”, etc. What does it say?
That is your site ad. No matter how you slice it, even if it’s free, that’s still your ad. It’s your free ad, right? And when people come to your site, they’re going to be looking for that. And if you don’t give it to them, they won’t be happy.
And here’s an interesting thing. You can actually flip people into what you want them to go into. For example, if you’re in that motorhome market, you could offer motorhome loans, or get people to click on things that are expensive, or find a guide for people to buy motorhomes, or something like that.
And make it deliberate. Make it up front.
How to Make Your Blog Convert in 3 Seconds or Less
- Does your site or blog cater to the type of user you’re trying to reach?
Make sure your blog isn’t too technical. If you’re marketing to 84-year-old grandmas, make it pretty basic. Make things big, easy to read, with big fonts, and simple “click here” buttons. If you’re marketing to people searching for cell phone gadgets, make it hip, cool, and fun. Think, focus, test.
Is it any wonder that my stuff looks like it was made in the 70s?
What influenced my stuff was making it easy. How many of you guys look at my toolbar, and you think, “I can find what I want”? You’re there and you go for it. How many of you guys go to my website and think, “That’s so easy to use”? If you want to log in, you click on “log in”. If you want help and support, you click on the “help and support”. If you want the desktop tools, they’re right there
If you want to search for something, you search for something. It’s very basic and very easy. The reason I do this isn’t because I’m a terrible website designer. I do it because it has to be easy. It has to be simple. It has to be something that says, “This is what you want, and here is where to get it.”
- Can my visitor find the promise in less than 3 seconds?
Let’s say you put up a blog post about pricing. And you tell your visitors “This blog post is about how I saved $1,000 a month in my budget.” If that’s what you’re promising your visitors, and they come to your site, can they find that in 3 seconds? If they can’t, go hang out with the club of people only making 2 cents a click.
So, give them that. Make a big button. Or a drop-down box. Make something they can use. Remember, your visitor came to your site because of the promise found in your advertisement, your banner, or your search engine listing. They’re on your site because they want the goods. If they can’t see the promise in 3 seconds, they’re gone. So give them what they want.
You guys are here because you want to learn to make a living blogging. Imagine if I came here and said, “Today we’re going to talk about PHP and the backend of WordPress, and I’m going to show you how to make a little money here.” You would say, “Dude, this isn’t what I wanted. I came here because I want to make a living blogging.”
That’s why friends of mine who hang out on my webinars ask me, “How do you get most of the people to stay until the very end?” And it’s because I give the people what I promised.
Realize that you don’t have to deliver the whole promise up front in one sentence. You can simply have a headline with the promise in it, or an opt-in box saying, “Download your promise here by entering your name and email.” Very simple.
- Is your site focused on what you want the user to do most?
What do you want them to do? If you want them to get a mortgage, maybe you should have a zip code box that says, “put your zip code to find mortgages.” It’s focused on what you want. If you want them to download those little cursors and smileys or whatever they may be, do you have them on there? Are they easy to get?
If you want your visitors to opt in, make that the main point of your site. Don’t distract your visitors with AdSense links or videos. Keep it one-sided. If you have content, the content should lead them to opt in. If you have a video, the video should say to opt in. Whatever the big promise is, if there are images, put a caption below the image, or blur a part of it out, and say, “put your name and email to get the whole image.”
- Do my colors and themes compliment or distract from my message?
This is one thing a lot of people get wrong.
Now, I was gifted with the ability to make really simple sites—because I don’t know how to make complicated ones. It was actually a blessing in disguise, because simple is what sells. A simple color change can be the difference between profit and money loss.
If you’re marketing to Halloween people, they probably don’t want a pink, flowery site. If you’re going for a wedding, they probably don’t want a black site (unless they’re going for gothic weddings, then maybe they’d want that).
Here’s a tip: Make your headlines red. If there are links you want clicked, make them blue. Make buttons easy to read and click. Make directions clear and concise.
So many people don’t follow this. Use short sentences, simple to read, simple stuff. Tell people what you want. Do you want people to buy stuff? Tell them. Do you want people to click? Tell them. Do you want people to download stuff? Tell them. Do you want people to opt in? Say, “Put your name and email in the box at the end of this webinar.”
This is something I do on each one of my own webinars. When I get to the sales page, I show you how to fill out my order form. Is that because I think you don’t know how to fill out an order form? No, of course not. It’s because I want to show you what to do.
I’m going to say, “After you order, you’re going to get this. It’s going to come in your email.” And you’ll think to yourself, “Wow, after I order, I’m going to get all this stuff. Why do I do that? Because it’s simple. It tells you what to do.
You have to tell your visitor what to do. They don’t always know. Marketers often assume that they’re visitors do know what to do. They assume, “Oh, visitors will click the affiliate offer because it’s great”, or “They’re going to join my product because it’s great”. But people don’t know your product is great until you tell them it’s great. And you have to tell them it’s great based on the reason they came to you in the first place.

Good morning affiliate marketing dudes and dudeets today what we’re gonna do is talk about how to build. Money pages.
We’re going to try to set this up live here on this livestream so that we can show you how it works. But I got to warn you didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for this as we had a major power outage and I wasn’t home yesterday but we’re going to do our best here and sometimes doing it like this is the best. Now first let’s go through let’s show you how this works and again if you like this kind of stuff and you want to learn more about affiliate marketing and how to make money online. And my thoughts about life and politics. Make sure you subscribe and click the bell notification here on the channel. That way you don’t miss anything and you could join us every Wednesday here live. Just like today. So today what we’re gonna do is talk about how to build money pages. Now I’ve got a disclaimer this what we’re gonna be doing is building money pages that are designed to be used as a bridge page for your offers and for your mailing list. These are not designed to be ran directly on paid search engines. These are for things like solo ads banner ads linking from your blog linking from a Web site linking from anywhere and everywhere that you can get traffic even on the social media sites. So here’s how they’re going to work. And again I also want a disclaimer this and say some of the results you’re going to see here like when I say that I’ve made millions of dollars with this exact example that you’re going to learn to set up in less than 15 minutes. I don’t know if you’re going to make a million dollars. I don’t know if you’re gonna make five dollars. I don’t know if you’re giving I’m gonna make five cents. This is a business. There’s variables there’s lots of things and the average person never makes anything because the average person never even sets up a Web site. I know because I teach a lot of people and they’re always asking me how to build a Web site. So we’re going to knock that out today show you how to build this really quick give you some free tools and everything like that to make sure you stick around. You’re going to see some free tools you’re going to see all kinds of things but first I want to show you the flow again. Remember the pages that I’m teaching you to make are for direct advertising. You don’t want to go on search engines and stuff like that. This is for something direct. This is if you have a site that’s getting traffic this is where you lead people. This is if you want to buy solo ads or you want to buy banner ads or you want to do social media advertising or you want something to link to from your youtube or you want something to link to from your Instagram. This is what we’re talking about here. So everyone in the comments calm down because I know a lot of people like to say that doesn’t work if you’re flying in an airplane and it’s like well yeah I don’t know I’ve never tested it but this works. Time and time again. So here’s the flow the flow is we’re going to have an opt in page. Okay. You’re going to have an opt in page. You’ll be able to set it up in a couple minutes using the tools that I’m gonna show you right here right now. Next you want to have a thank you page your thank you page is where you’re going to have your thank you message. Thanks for joining. Thanks for subscribing some related offers some content and some text and some other related offers. Now here’s where it gets really cool once they go to your money page and they fill out the name and email. They’re gonna be on your mailing list. That’s what all these are these are all mailing things. Much like the mail that I sent out that got sent back to me that I got to send out again so if you requested the free money tool just sit tight. We’re working on get them out. It’s just gonna cost me about four times as much as I thought. But hey it’s still gonna be profitable. So these are mailing lists people so you can email them over and over. You can email them back to post on your blog with an offer. Okay. If you’ve got it. Type. Got it in the box or 100 percent or. 1 if you don’t get it. Something like that. Let me know where you’re at. We’re gonna dive in we’re show you how to do all this so that you too can setup your own money pages.
Money pages are good money pages are fun. They make lots of money. And now you’re going to learn to make one. So if you’re following. Type it in the box let me know. We’re gonna dive right in. All right. Good. So here we are. We are on the blue host control panel. This is Blue Hose control panel. This is the host that I use if you want to learn more about it. You’re going to learn more about it in this call. OK. What we’re going to be doing today is setting up simple money page dot com right. Pretty pretty simple. There we go. We’re going to set up the site simple money page dot com on the site simple money page dot com that’s where you’re going to go to get all the tools that I reference in this and see how this works. Right everyone on the up and up. Yeah. That’s cool. You’re actually going to set something up live and show us that it actually works live so we can use it. See the process and actually make this stuff work. All right. Pretty cool. All right. So first and foremost what you need to do is you need to have web hosting if you don’t have web hosting. I would urge you to go over to go. Hub site dot com. OK. We’re gonna go to go hub site dot com. This is going to walk you through how to get hosting the right way. OK. If you don’t do it the right way it’s going to take you a lot more time and you’re not going to get what you need and you’re gonna get frustrated. So you’re going to want to go to. Go hub site dot com. Let’s make that nice and big. So you guys can in fact see it. Came.
There you go. Let’s make it even bigger. We’re not messing around here. We got to have this stuff. Big go hub site dot com that’s where you’re gonna want to go. That’s going to walk you through how to get hosting THEY GIVE YOU A FREE domain name and all kinds of cool stuff. So definitely worth it if you follow my instructions it’ll cost you about 70 dollars a year if you don’t follow my instructions it’ll cost you. Quite a bit more. OK so follow a law and follow the instructions it’s going to walk you through. Now once you get your host the way that I teach you you’re going to have what’s called a name server. OK. And once you get that name server that Name Server is the same for any and all of your sites so you can buy a Web site a domain name and you could start setting it up instantly which is what we did here on simple money page dot com. Very simple. I bought this domain a couple of days ago. It’s ready to go. All I got to do is go over to my host go to domains. Go to AD domain. Be lazy and copy and paste it. Simple Money page dot com. We’re going to check it if you did everything right. The way I teach you it should go and check and be like oh hey this is this is how it works. It is in fact. Ready to go. So we’re gonna go to assign a domain. We’re gonna go to use a domain that’s not currently associated. With your account. We’re gonna wait. It’s going to say yeah your no name servers are setup. Okay. Yeah. Check it out. Ownership verified. That means the name servers are good. That means we could be up and running instantly. We’re gonna put this as an add on domain. We’re gonna go to simple money page like this. Very simple. If I go fast for you and you get lost don’t worry there will be a replay instantly. After this call. But you want to stick around live so you can get all the tools. OK we’re gonna go here. Everything like this. Put your domain in there. Add on. Create a new directory. Simple it pretty populates all this does it for you. We’re gonna assign the domain.
And then we go like this. And we wait. I like this. We wait some more. Have a pipe.
Light it again because for some reason it did not light properly. And we wait and wait and wait. Sometimes it takes a minute but we should be OK. Go on. Click it again just in case. Come on now. Say sometimes it actually does in fact. Assign it and just stick on the page or just call you just work around it. So let’s see. Let’s see if it’s actually loaded domains. And it’s simple money paid so it is actually it is actually added. So now we should see. OK. So now we’re gonna go through it is actually added. It just being a pain in the butt. So if that happens you just go through and you just work with it. Next to what we’re gonna do is we’re going to click on this little W and we’re gonna go to. My sites. OK. And we’re gonna go over to. Create site and run it install WordPress. So we’re gonna go in here we’re gonna do our site name which is gonna be called simple money page. How to build a simple WordPress opt in page. Okay. We don’t need to worry too much about this because it’s not really going to be a big issue. Are we still streaming. I think we’re still good. It looks like we’re stuck in. Stream health is good. Okay simple money page. Now you don’t need to worry too much about all the keywords and stuff like that. All you’ve got to worry about. Is and we’ve got to watch our our stream health because we were. Having internet issues and power issues earlier today. OK. We don’t need to worry too much about keywords and stuff like that because. We’re not using this on on search stuff. OK. If you do search stuff you don’t gotta worry about it. You just do that. Now if you’re losing the connection. Just hit refresh and you’re good to go. OK. So simple money page. There we go. We’re going to hit next. We’re gonna choose the domain we wanted on which is simple money page dot com. Make sure you choose this and not this. This is a subdomain. This is the domain. We want the actual domain. We don’t want a directory and we don’t want any of this junk here. OK. Next we’re gonna go and hit next. Pretty cool right next hit next. Pretty easy. OK. So now we’re gonna go here set this up.
All right. Wait for it to set up and what it’s doing now is it’s installing WordPress. So it might take a minute.
Which is call. Still gonna be under 15 minutes I hope. And as we wait for this.
You should see your site start to change. Hopefully if it wants to work. Come on.
Dario. OK so now it should be set up. Now what I like to do is I like to toggle back and forth. You guys will notice that I have lots of tabs open.
Right here. See you have lots of tabs open. I like to toggle back and forth between the tabs of like our hosting. And what we see so you can actually see in real time what’s going on and it might cache it for us so let’s see if we can actually. Get it to not cache. Let’s see we’ll go over to Firefox and see if it cashes in firefox. It looks like it wants to cash. Which is fine. We can still work with it we can still roll with it sometimes it just takes a minute to actually load in our stupid things being crazy so I’m going to turn it down. OK. So there we go. Now we have our site we’re ready to go. We’re gonna go ahead and click log into wordpress right here so you can see all your all your sites where it’s at. Everything like that. Now what that means is that we installed WordPress a lot of you guys get this a lot of guys have done this. That’s all fine. That’s all good. We’re gonna hit log in now once we log into wordpress right like this. Okay. We’re gonna go in. And see if we can actually get in. It just wants to cash it and be a pain. Control of five Zach and get rid of our cash. I don’t think so. All right so we’ll try to log in here. And manage our site. Go back to our sites here. COME ON.
GO BACK GO BACK GO BACK GO BACK. This is the fun of trying to.
Do this on a new site. Life. Always gives you a pain in the butt. Right. Okay. Which is cool because hey. Pain in the butt. DO HAPPEN. OKAY. SO WE’RE GONNA GO HERE. WE’RE GONNA GO TO MY sites. We should be able. To get into our site. Let’s see. Log into wordpress. Does it want to do it or is it still caching. Still wants to cash. How fun. Okay. So what we’re gonna do while we wait for this to cash and cashing just means that it’s like going through and it’s gonna like update your site and it just for some reason it takes a while sometimes. So what we’re gonna do next is we’re gonna go through it and we’re gonna set up our theme okay. What I have provided for you is a theme called Easy funnel. This is where you can make a funnel in your WordPress instantly. Like literally fast. Okay so what we’re gonna do is you’re actually gonna go over to the site that we’re setting up today which is simple money page dot com. You’re gonna go ahead and download this easy funnel it’s gonna come as a zip file. Okay. What you’re gonna do is you’re gonna go ahead and extract all it’s gonna pop up with a little thing like this. Boom. It’s gonna extract it. And. Now. It’s going to open all the files. Okay very simple okay. Now what we’re going to do is we’re gonna take a look at all this. You don’t need to know what all these files mean. Doesn’t matter. All you need to know is to go to images and you’re gonna change the page image. It’s page dot j peg JP. OKAY SO ALL WE GOT TO DO IS GO OVER TO LIKE clip art dot com. Right. Like this and find a background that we want. Okay. We’re gonna find a background and let’s see how we doing here sound is doing good. Everything looks good. Okay so what we’re gonna do is you’re gonna trying to find a background for our page so we can go through I can find a background I like a beach or something. Make it kind of cool. I’m going to get a picture a photo. Hit search. And we’ll try to find us a background that looks good. Maybe something like this. This looks pretty good here. So we’re going to download it in a high resolution. Right like this. But when we download this we’re going to hit save picture as we’re just going to navigate to that folder. Easy funnel too. And we’re going to go into images and we’re going to replace.
That’s if we get to all images here. Let’s see. I think we might need to save it first. Like this. Doo doo doo doo doo.
Let’s try JP. E.g.. We’re gonna call it page. Dot JP e.g. and it should ask us if we want to overwrite it. If we did it did it right. Okay. And then in our folder now the page will be this thing here. Okay. Pretty cool. So you just pick whatever you want. Like if you were on a site about money maybe you’d want to get a picture of money in case of like if you wanted a money background maybe you do something like this. Okay everyone got it. Dark background if you got it pretty simple. And whatever you use as your background is going to be what you use. Okay. Everyone got it typed got it if you got it.
We’ll make sure you do. Okay.
Cool. Scale of one to 100. How you’re doing on this so far. It’s pretty easy. You guys are gonna get it in like a couple of seconds here. Okay. So that’s pretty much how it works. That’s all you got to know. Okay. Now once you’re done with that. You’re going to have all your folders here or all your files. Okay you’re gonna go back to the easy funnel too. You’re gonna hit control a to highlight everything and then I’m just gonna go ahead and zip this back up compress zip folder. I’m going to call this. My money page or something. Okay so we’ll just call this rename Money page. Okay. Right like that. Pretty simple. Okay. Now once you have that what we’re gonna do. Let’s see if we’re still caching. Hopefully not. But hey you know what.
Stuff happens sometimes. So. Let’s see. It still wants to cash. Let’s try h t t s.
Still wants the cash. So what we’re gonna do is we’re just gonna put this on a different site here.
So let’s see if I have this one set up how two lives dot com and the will just transferred over. Oh Dot org had a livestream dawg. OK. Let’s see if there’s a word press on this one.
Okay cool. So this one’s ready. So what you’re gonna do is after you install WordPress if nothing’s caching you will get to this page. Okay. Pretty cool. So all you got to do is go and do log into wordpress write like this and you’re gonna have your brand new WordPress. Very simple. OK. Pretty cool. Yeah we could delete cookies and everything but. It’s probably still gonna cash or tried it on a different a different site so. You know. It’s probably gonna give us the same thing. So we’re gonna go in here and log into wordpress like this. And we wait.

Make more money. But first.
You will need a few things. All right. Kyle crypto says do you need keywords and tags. This is not a site designed for search engine optimization. So no we don’t. This is an opt in site. I explained that in the beginning I would urge you to watch it from the beginning through so you get it. Okay so first you’ll need a few things. Now this is YOUR MONEY page. So what I want to do is I want to make some money right up front.
Okay. That’s the goal here. So I want to give them things that are relevant if I’m giving them like a workout guide. Then I would want to put an offer for. You know. Workout stuff or weight loss or whatever. Jamie says does a web or do email automation. Yes it does. That’s why we use it. Okay so but first you’re gonna need a few things. Okay so now we want to give them things that are gonna help them but also make us money. First. You will. Let’s make it lower case. Need a good web hosting service and a domain name. I would suggest. An easy to remember. Dot com name that says something about what you offer. For. Example. You can use. It for example. If you are in the diet market. Perhaps something like. Diet. Guide. Now dot com or something like that. Or if you are in the. Parenting. Niche. Perhaps something like. Parent. Better now. Dot com. The cool thing is. The web. Host I recommend. Actually. Actually gives you the domain. The first. Domain. Free. Use this box. Box. To see. What names are. Available. Then get web. Hosting. And I’ll show you. How to set. Everything. Up. Boom. There we go. Now. What box. Marcus what are you talking about. What we’re gonna do is we’re actually going to go in to our world our affiliate programs. I have a hosting affiliate program and they give me a code for a box. All I got to do is go to text. Replace it with my code here. Hit update and watch what happens. Now. On our Thank You page. You write like this. Says thank you for joining my mailing list. Be sure to watch out for emails from me. Blah blah blah blah blah. First you’re going to need to go to web host. Now it’s got this little box and they can actually search for whatever it is they’re like. I want to search for make money. Faster. Today. Dot com. They can actually search. They go to the web host says it’s available and boom they can buy it through my affiliate link. And I get paid. When they sign up for hosting. Right. How many guys are like. That’s pretty cool. That’s pretty good. Like seriously you’re giving them instructions based on what the tool was that you’re giving away on your opt in page. Right. You guys are like yep. That’s cool. I dig that. I can do that. Right. And then you can mess around with it like if you want to make it smaller or something like that. You could go through and look at the code. It’s pretty easy. OK. I don’t want it 100 percent I want it 90 percent and maybe I’ll make it one hundred and ninety. So I don’t get that little scroll box or something like that. Right. And then you just mess around with it. And this is actually we have a guy in our Facebook group who’s doing this exact thing. He got two sales last week I think it was and probably more. I haven’t heard from him since then. He’s probably out more since then. Super easy. Right. So there you go. I made a little bit smaller. OK. Very easy. Then we can go through and just edit it and add some other stuff. Right. You could do something like if you already have web hosting. You will also need an auto responder. I like to use a web or web or whatever. There we go. Okay. And I know what you’re gonna do is you’re going to go into like a Weber. And you’re going to go into your affiliate account of a web. Let me just sign in real quick to my affiliate account. OK on your affiliate account of a Webber intellectually give you your referral link.

And then we just copy this big link here this is our affiliate link. OK and we’re gonna put that affiliate link right here. Now I’m just gonna put a space holder and go to text. You. Right. Like that gotta have sound effects. Otherwise it just gets really boring. OK. Update. And now. We’ve got this. Boom. Here’s our little themes. Okay. Pretty cool. Now we can also go in if we want to get fancy and we can add like Click Bank stuff. Let’s see about Click Bank. Had quick bank somewhere. Just so you guys know I got like five monitors with tons of stuff. And it gets kind of crazy. Okay. So here’s her Click Bank. All right. Now I can go in and I could do like WordPress. Word. Press.

Couple of questions where do you get traffic. You would buy traffic for whatever is relevant for whatever niche you’re going in.
So like if I was gonna do this theme one I would probably go to like maybe a site like buy sell ads. OK. I go to buy sell ads or something and I’d go in here. And I try to find sites that are related to WordPress. OK so like. Publishers I go to marketplace. And then I type in like WordPress. OK. So like here’s a wordpress theme sites like I could go to this wordpress theme sites and I can run a banner ad. OK. He’s a little bit expensive so I probably wouldn’t do that one. So let’s see if maybe I’d do it at the CPM. Yeah that would probably work at the CPM level. This is the one I do. And just to add to cart. For fifty seven dollars he’s gonna show my ad thirty thousand times. All right so.

All right. Cool. So. Marcus mentor dot m e really good to go. Let’s take some questions here. Don says if you can afford click funds you don’t need this. Well it depends on what you want to do Don. There are reasons that I use click funds for certain things and there’s reasons I use WordPress for certain things. You’ve got to look at a business and say What do I want to happen where and I’ve I’ve actually hit the. I think I’d be at the 10 x award if I was using click funnels but I really don’t care about awards and stuff like that. And I’ve actually been around marketing online since before click funds was out. Is it a good platform. Sure. Is it what most people need to start generating a simple mailing list and making money with affiliate marketing. No I think it’s overkill for that. I think most people just need to set something up very quick like we showed here without worrying about all the other junk. And I think that’s what this is about. And if you guys appreciate that I would definitely say check out Marcus mentor dot M E and use that because it’s really cool it’s really easy use 10x award I think is the award they give out for someone who’s made eight figures online or something like that. Okay. Another question here. Do you get a book with mentor yes you do and a T-shirt a custom affiliate marketing dude embroidered T-shirt. Adam says buying a mailing list is against the terms and service for most email marketing platforms. That is true. We are not buying buying a mailing list. What we’re doing is we’re using the page that we created to generate our mailing list. Right so we’re actually putting an advertisement in a mailing list with a solo ad sending people here and we only get the people who fill it out which luckily because we do really good we get like 60 percent anywhere from 30 to 60 percent to fill that out. So that makes sense to everyone. OK. Call and that’s a thing you’ve got to get really really clear about what tools you want to use and why. Why would I want to use a tool. What am I going to use it for. Because we could get in shiny object info overload syndrome where people are just like I’m going to buy all these tools and get all these things and it’s like guys I’ve been doing this with WordPress it’s fast it’s easy it works incredibly fast and simple like I could literally say I want to go in and I want someone to buy something right. Let’s say you’re gonna sell something OK. You could literally go in. Watch how easy this is. I don’t need to log in to click bundles I don’t need to do anything I could just literally go into the simple sites tools. OK.

Let’s say I’m selling something let’s say I want to sell a version of that theme right. I could go in and I could be like I’m going to use this add to cart button may use item number 1 2 3. I may use item name custom wordpress themes. OK. And guys I do this all the time. I made millions of dollars with PayPal and it’s easy right. Item Price. Let’s say I want to charge 37 bucks for it. Put in your paypal email whatever it is. OK. And then boom this is gonna generate. The link. I could just put this link right here in my word pressing and to put a space Holder. Go to where the A’s are boom update. Done like literally that was what 45 seconds.

So you want to learn how to make one hundred dollars a day in passive income on the old Internet using a simple mailing list that you could set up in like 45 minutes. Well you found the video and the live show for you because that is what we were going to be talking about today. I got to talk to you about how mailing lists work how to build a mailing list how to make passive income with a mailing list even if you don’t have your own product or even if you don’t have your own Web site yet. I say yet because you probably need your own Web site. But don’t fear we have tools to teach you how to build a Web site that can capture leads into a mailing list in as little as 15 minutes. Don’t worry about that. We got a handle today what we’re going to do is we’re gonna talk about how to build a business that does a hundred dollars a day in passive income with a simple mailing list that you can start building. Forty five minutes after you’re done watching this training but. You have to watch the whole thing now first and foremost. I got a disclaimer this because some people are going to hop on thinking they’re going to watch a video and all of a sudden money is going to fall from the sky like manna fell from heaven. That’s not exactly true. That’s not even true at all. Watching videos here on YouTube doesn’t make anyone anything unless you’re paid to watch videos which I think that many people are.
But and even if they are they’re not paid that much.
But what we’re going to do is we’re gonna teach you how this stuff works. So we’re going to teach you a business that works we’re going to teach you a system that’s worked over and over time and time again since. Yes.
Over 100 years this magazine is 100 years old. There’s the date 100 years old and I’m going to show you an example of a mailing list.
So a lot of people they freak out when they think about affiliate marketing and Internet marketing and they think all this stuff is new and crazy and techie and weird and I’m here to show you your old buddy Marcus the affiliate marketing dude is here to show you that these principles have been around forever. And if you’re struggling it’s because you’re not going back to the roots of where this stuff started. You’re not going back to the roots of how marketing works how human nature works. How many guys are with me if you’re with me type with me in the box and we are going to go through everything and show you how it works. First of all.
I think we have some notes here. There’s a little late last night when I made the notes but we got notes so we’re going to go into the first part here again disclaimer I don’t know what you’re going to make there’s no guarantees of income. We have no idea. This is a business at some people I’ll make more. Some people will be less make less. Some people won’t make anything. Some people won’t do anything. Some people won’t even watch the whole video. So I mean there’s so many variables there you can’t really look at it that way. If you’re still out there looking for a guaranteed way to get money it doesn’t exist. You got to do the work. All right. So let’s take a look at this.
Let’s look at part 1 which is the history of auto responders how many you guys know what an auto responder is type auto responder in the box.
OK we’ll talk about what that is in just a minute. Don’t worry if you don’t know and we’re going to talk to you about how this stuff works. All right. So.
Now I bookmarked a page here. This is a hundred year old magazine and what I want to show you is an ad. Right here on the bottom of page and whatever page a hundred and twelve. There we go. All right. At the bottom of page 112 there is an advertisement advertisement for the free shoe book huh. Who doesn’t want the free shoe book and it’s crowded with photographs and everything about shoes. And then there’s all kinds of stuff. Here here’s another one. That says easiest way to become a nurse. Back then people were looking for jobs and they said the easiest way to become a nurse. Now I want you to notice that on all of these ads that I’m showing you they are asking you to mail in. For something free. He has his free there and they say yeah I want to. I want you to mail in so you could get this free thing right and they have a little coupon there. That says hey mail in for this free thing. Okay now. How many you guys recognize that. Right. You’re like OK. So. So there’s an ad in a magazine much like this one. This one was taken from the 1980s. Right.
Good time to be alive in the old 1980s. I was like 10 but. Was still pretty good. You know we had like. Good stuff going on. All right. 70s was better because they had the doors. He was listening to before this call. Here’s one from the 1980s it’s about mail order riches and you can see down at the bottom there they have a little forum that says Fill this out for your no obligation information. OK so now what’s happening here is this is like.
There opt in page. OK. Bear with me here. This is like their opt in page. So they sell you on it and then you got to fill out you go get your pencil or pen and you got to fill this out and you gotta to mail it in and they’re gonna send you free info. Pretty basic pretty cool. How many guys can look at that and you’re like Okay I get it. So that. Right there is like. An opt in page. Okay. Or as we call it can also be called a squeeze page. OK. And the idea of a squeeze page is to get people from the ad or from the site to put their name and email in the box. And then they go on your list. The idea of this ad was to squeeze all the people from the magazine that are interested in this topic into a list. Okay so they’re taking all these little coupons. We’ll just draw a straight line and they’re building a list. Okay. Very good. It’s kind of like I go out there and I’m like OK. Let’s go into a crowd of a million people. And let’s say hey raise your hand if you’re interested in losing weight. And they all raise their hand and I’m like Good you guys who are interested in losing weight. Come over here let’s talk on the side. Same kind of deal. Right you’re like Hey everyone who’s interested in this stuff mail this thing in. Or. Or put your name and e-mail in the box and come on over here. Let’s talk. OK. Landing Page opt in page squeeze page whatever you want to call it. That’s what happens. Now let’s talk about what happened after.
Someone mailed in this little coupon or after someone joins the mailing list. So back then in the 80s and in the nineteen hundreds 1999 to be exact. Right. What would happen. Is you would send in your coupon. OK so you’d fill this out and be like yes I want this information you’d send it out. You drop it in the mail OK. Then be a big house big house and they get all this mail. Right. So here’s this this place and they get all this mail here they get all this mail and they got all this mail to sort okay. And what they didn’t do is they take all this mail.
All right. And.
They look at the addresses on the mail OK they build a list out of all these addresses. OK. Pretty cool pretty good. Pretty neat. It’s like yay we’ve got this list of people now we’ve got a list of hundreds of thousands of people who are interested in mail order wholesaling the road to riches. That’s what they’re interested in. OK so they got all these addresses here addresses.
OK so I got all the addresses. Now what they do is they have what’s called a sequence. OK. They’ve got a sequence. So they say well you know what we’re gonna do is on day number one we’re going to send out this letter. OK so this would be day. One and they take day one letter. And a folded up. And they put it in an envelope.
And they do this about hundred thousand times. OK. And they put it in an envelope to everyone who put their address in the coupon case that’s day one and they’re like yes there’s day one. Then they’re like OK well what about on day two. And they go through and they’re like All right. Day two good. And then go day two. OK. And what would happen is they would say well you’re interested in mail order riches. Good. Here’s the thing. Right and this would be an informational report which was requested here with a sales letter OK. Very important you always want to do information. With sales. Say it with me. Information. With sales information.
With sales. Very basic. So they do that.
And then the next one they send and sometimes they’ll do something like Hey I noticed you got my last letter but you didn’t buy anything. Maybe you should buy something now. Or whatever. Or maybe day two is. A list of people who made money with mail order and in day three they’re like OK day three I’m going to go through and I’m going to send you. Some testimonials from some people or whatever it is. Right. Very cool very basic and very easy to look at. So what would happen is they would take these people like these people over here who put their information on and we’re like OK we want more information. That’s what we want. We want more information there. OK. And then what they do is they be like we’re gonna put him through a sequence on day number one. We’re going to send him the big pitch. OK. That’s the big pitch. Probably like a 14 page report with maybe a 10 page sales letter. OK. So like that then day two they’d be like OK day two. We’re gonna send like the the bonus thing. OK. Bonus report. OK. Maybe they send you like a list of of three you know places to get mail order or wholesale or whatever. Then day three they go through maybe they’ll send like testimonials.
OK Then day four. Maybe they’ll send you something else helpful.
- And then day five and six and seven and maybe they start to taper off after that but the fact of the matter is is no matter what they have gathered a mailing list. Now what you guys all did to answer a question for me if you had a list of one hundred thousand people that were interested in any topic do you think you could make money. If you were like OK. Well I got this list of people and they’re interested. They wanted a free book on mail order riches. How many guys think you can make money on that. How many guys don’t think you can make money. Of course you could make money. You would have to be living under a rock. If you didn’t. Make money. Right. Now. Brian says I sure hope so. Well Brian you need to pay attention to your buddy Marcus because he’s going to teach you how to do that right. It’s pretty basic. All right. So this is what we want to look at. So here’s the sequence now. Fast forward. 20 years. But is it from the 80s 30 years something like almost 40 years. Damn I feel old today. But at any rate almost 40 years since the 80s almost 100 years since the first ad. A lot of people now. Completely forget.
That this is where mailing lists. This is where marketing started because they get tied up with WordPress and builder all and click funnels and this and that and this and that.
And they forget the basics of marketing. They forget the basics that it’s about getting people to take action.
Getting people to request information getting people to a mailing list. Where you could send them other.
Relevant things OK. Now let’s fast forward. Let’s take a look at what this looks like online. OK. You want to make 100 bucks a day disclaimer you probably won’t. No one does. The Internet has no money but at any rate we’re going to try to teach you how to. But don’t expect anything it’s not guaranteed implied or anything so you wanna make a hundred dollars a day. That’s roughly four dollars an hour. OK so four bucks an hour. That’s it’s got do you. I make four dollars every hour. If you want to make one hundred dollars a day get everyone type four bucks in the box. If you’re with me. OK so you want four dollars an hour if you wanna make that. And that’s like pretty decent. I mean be thirty six thousand dollars a year something like that. It’s not bad from a little mailing list. So we take this to the online world. OK. Here’s what it’s going to look like. Now instead of having this in an ad like that here’s the thing. In the old days we had to design an ad. We had to write an ad we had to pay a fortune this ad probably cost about one hundred thousand dollars per magazine to run. He creates the ad. He puts it into circulation. It takes a month to run and he doesn’t see any money for like a month and it cost him 100 hundred grand to put this in and he doesn’t even know he could get nothing. All right. Now on the Internet. Let’s take a look and I want you to see this because people don’t get this. They put their head in the clouds when it comes to Internet marketing. And that’s why they don’t make money because they’re focused on the stuff that doesn’t work. What I did when I first saw in marketing focused on this stuff I was like if this guy can run an ad. And pay a hundred thousand dollars and then get a bunch of frickin envelopes hire people to put stuff in the envelopes and still turn a profit. I kind of want to learn what he’s doing. I don’t care about the kid who’s like oh mood Holder thousand dollars on the Shopify. I don’t care about that guy. I care about. This guy because he puts his money where his mouth is he says I’m going to make some money and I’m going to pay to get my stuff in front. I want to learn the skill that guy has how many guys want to learn that skill type skill because anyone out there can go in and. Teach stuff online anyone can do that. It’s not that hard. When I first started I started with this stuff. I actually went and mailed letters to limousine companies and I made a frickin fortune doing it a fortune for. Back then not for today but it was pretty good right. I was like hey 20 year old kid getting checks like crazy making money like crazy. And I printed the things out I paid to get the stamp I paid for the mailing list guys I was. I learned how this works my magic ad. Same kind of thing. I put my money where my mouth is. So many of you guys how many of you guys are afraid to buy traffic. Put afraid. You’re like I don’t want to buy traffic. What if I lose money. Right. How many guys if you’re honest with yourself you’re like I’m a little afraid to buy traffic Berkus Marcus I don’t know what if it doesn’t work. What if what if what if what if.
- You’re afraid to buy traffic because you don’t know this skill.
You don’t have skill. This guy bought like 100 times like these magazines here. I don’t know how much it was in the Ladies Home Journal back in the day but like these National Enquirer and stuff. It’s like a quarter of a million dollar ad right there. This guy paid a quarter of a million bucks. He doesn’t know if anyone’s interested. He just knows that someone walked by and was interested in like. I don’t know some actors who’ve got a divorce. That’s all he knows. That’s it. And you’re afraid to buy traffic and you know exactly what the guy’s searching for like he’s like I am searching for ways to lose weight. If you’re allergic to vinegar. Seriously this guy doesn’t know anything other than hey you know what. Maybe a bunch of women read this and and and they’re interested in actors and gossip and and crap. And that’s it. Right. And you. Can actually get sued. Bonus no one like we can target our audience in an insane way. Like it’s almost as clear as being like I only want to markets market to Marcus Campbell. That’s it. That’s who I want to market to. At that you could literally market to who you want. Exactly. So you can get your audience so draw your audience up here. OK. Here’s your audience and they all have the same hairdo as me because we don’t have time.
To get better hairdos.
All right. So there’s your audience and you’re like boom. I can go through and I can talk to these people. But first gotta know who they are. We gotta know who they are. So we’re like Yay. Here we are. These are people that are interested in. Let’s say growing tomatoes grow. Tomatoes OK. Anyone can go in that market. Come on. That’s not that competitive right. Growing tomatoes but by the way we actually have an ad over here somewhere. From the old tomato man. All right here’s the old tomato man. Year old tomato man. Old tomato man has got you a free report. About them their tomatoes. Areas. All right. He’s got an ad. There’s another ad he paid a fortune he paid a fortune to go in a generic magazine you could probably do well with people who are searching for how to grow tomatoes wouldn’t you think. You guys are like wait a minute this start makes sense I’m starting to get this like really get these guys paid a bunch of money. They turned a profit. And and they didn’t have a targeted group I have a targeted group and I can’t turn a profit. Maybe. Maybe just maybe. It’s less about the Internet and it’s more about the marketing. Just maybe. Maybe. But the problem is is ninety nine percent of the people.
Focus on the Internet stuff and not the marketing stuff. I’m sure glad. I was the opposite when I started. Otherwise I wouldn’t have a. Snowball’s chance in hell of making money. And you might find yourself in the same place and same Marcus I can’t make money I don’t know how to do this I don’t know how to set this up I don’t know how to do that. You’re focusing too much on the internet and not enough on the marketing you’ve got to focus on the marketing so here’s this tomato guy.
All right and let’s say you got all these people all these people are on Google or Facebook or wherever they’re at YouTube and they’re learning about growing tomatoes they’re watching a video and the guys digging in the dirt he’s like I’m going to dig these tomatoes right. They go on Google and they search for. Something like grow tomatoes or why do my tomato plant keep dying just like that. Okay. And you go to them and you’re like hey old fellows who want tomatoes. I. Got something for you. I got a free.
We’re gonna get fancy here. We’re going to draw a tomato free tomato. That’s our tomato. WE TRIED. A for effort F minus for the actual picture but if we put a leaf.
There we go.
There’s our tomato looks kind of like an apple but it is a tomato. So we go through and we’re like free tomato. OK out of that let’s say you get one hundred people how many do you think you’ll probably want your free tomato book.
Right. Probably all of them. How many will actually put their name and email on for it. Probably 30 to 60 percent of cases like the same thing. Look at this. You’ve got your opt in page. OK. Look at the layout like this little opt in box. Layout for the tomato guy. Like this headline sales stuff. Little opt in box or a little little coupon thing as it were.
So we go through and we’re like boop boop boop boop boop boop boop. Make a little coupon looking thing enter name and email.
For you free tomato book. That’s our submit button.
OK so now you got this page. This page. Would literally.
20 minutes to make. Maybe maybe an hour. If you’re totally slow and you’re like dancing around. Half the time and not paying attention. OK so take it back 45 minutes to make. Now. HBO says. But don’t you have to pay quite a lot to get the tomato guys to go out on your site. Well here’s the deal.
I want you to write this down all.
Advertising. All ads work.
So HBO says Don’t you have to pay to get those tomato people to your site. Well. This guy spent probably one hundred thousand dollars trying to get tomato people. Putting his ad in the old magazine. All right. If you have to pay.
Let’s say 60.
Per visitor OK that’s probably about right. Probably probably have to pay 15 cents a visitor for someone who specifically. Now here’s a deal. This guy puts the magazine ad. He pays whether the ad runs or not or whether the the ad is read it or not. So like if you go through and you’re like Hey I don’t like that ad and you just rip it out. Right. He still paid. If people don’t like what he has to say he’s still paid. When you pay 15 cents a click for your tomato people. 1. You target people looking up how to grow tomatoes. OK good. That’s plus number one plus number two. You only pay if they click on your ad. So in your ad if you say free tomato book and they don’t want a free tomato book. They’re probably not going to click. So you only pay for people who actually respond. Like imagine you go to the magazine and you’re like Guys I want this full page ad and they’re like good. It’s three hundred and fifty thousand dollars. You’re like I’m not going to pay 350 thousand. I get pay that they’re like OK. Well you know there’s a special discount. You can pay 325. And you’re like How am I going to pay three twenty five. I want to pay. Only. When someone reads my ad. Wow. We can we can’t do that. No no. You just hear me out. And. When someone fills out the form. I only want to pay when someone fills out the form and I only want to pay.
A dollar a person.
Magazine would call security and probably have you like drug out in a straight jacket. They’d be like are you. What do you think this is. GJ what just do you want us to just give you money. Are you insane. That’s what the Internet does. And if you don’t get it. Like I don’t know how else to teach you this stuff because this is where it’s at. It’s like you’re focusing on the wrong thing. I can get these guys for 15 cents if I get 30 percent to opt in 30 percent on a tomato site. I think I can definitely get that. That means if I get 100 visitors that is 15 bucks Am I right. Yeah fifteen dollars. OK 15 bucks for 100 visitors out of 100 visitors I get 30 opt ins. I’m getting options for 50 cents. 50 cents. Can I make 50 cents off a targeted tomato person who wants to grow more tomatoes. Yeah. I think you can. How many guys are with me. You guys getting an aha moment here. Tape. Aha.
In the box. If you’re getting an aha moment because a lot of people mess with mess this up. And I got to tell you I have mailing lists. That I make money on from people back in 2009 who who filled out a form like 2009 2008. They filled out a form online.
And they’re buying now. I have long since paid for that ad. I made money on those ads long ago. And now this guy’s in here he’s like a bicep for two grand and I’m like That’s cool. That’s pretty good. I like that. What’s the tip. The tip is.
To take care of your guy. So again you go through now. In the old days. Run. The ad in the magazine. A lot of money people fill out. The little coupon. OK. So that low coupon goes to the mailing house. Got a bunch of letters. Got a bunch of crap. They go through. They got to put a stamp on the letter. Guess what. Thirty cents forty seven cents to mail a letter. So 40 cents. You’re out like hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars. Before that or first order comes in. Like you’re out this you’re not you’re out like 15 bucks. I mean really. Or you could get free traffic if you like really. I don’t know. I don’t understand marketing or whatever. OK. So you could go through and you’re like yeah there we go. Now what we do is we could set this up. We don’t need. A big male house.
We have what’s called Let’s get a different color here. We have what’s called an auto. Responder.
OK what this auto responder does is it takes the names and e-mails and it does just like this but it doesn’t cost a lot.
It’s like literally nineteen dollars a month literally. OK now I have bigger lists so I pay maybe a hundred or so for mine but still like you only pay when you get a bigger list which means that’s like more money problem I guess. You’re making good money if you have good last. Right.
So auto responder goes through it takes all the names and emails and it puts them in a big database data base. Now I could go through this database and I could do exactly what we did over here with our sequence.
And I could be like day number one. Boom here’s your free tomato report.
Given the free tomato report what does that do. That gets him back to your site. Number two him this. Number three given this.
Number four Hey did you see this product about tomatoes or whatever. Right. And boom boom boom boom boom. Now this is all automated. You set it up once and the new people who come in get the new messages. The old people get the old messages. You can do broadcasts. You can do e-mails. You can do whatever you want. Here’s a list of one of mine or go through. That’s one of my smaller ones. And check it out. Boom. People are clicking. Look at that one. Got eight thousand people to open that message. Seven thousand. Six thousand. On and on we go. Like people are opening these messages and they’re clicking and that’s like boom. How many how many clicks there’s eight hundred and forty six clicks to one offer on one day from traffic I already generated. That’s pretty crazy right. So we’ve got to look at that. So that’s the history of how this works. You’ve got your sequence you’ve got where this works. And I want you to look at where this comes from because if you don’t get that it’s not going to make sense. You got to get the concept it’s not just about a site and an auto responder and this and that. It’s about understanding the core principle of you are building a database of people that are interested in a certain topic. Now that you have that database of people you can do whatever you want with them. Right. Within reason within ethics obviously follow the rules. Everything like that. OK. Follow along type 100 if you’re following along. One if you’re not following along and somewhere in between if you’re somewhere in between.
- Now we’ll get to. Part Two.
Okay. Let us know where you’re at. Right. Part Two.
All right so Part One this is how the auto responder works. All ads work at the right price. If you can do it right. The question is if I get an opt in or a person on my list for every. If I get 30 percent of the people on my list. And I’m spending 15 cents that means I’m paying. About 50 cents. Per person. Can I make more than 50 cents a person. That’s the question. You answered that question. You win like you don’t go and you buy some other thing you win. Like you answer the question of how do I spend 50 you get a guy on my list and make more than 50. OK. So that’s part one. Let’s go to part two here.
All right. Part.
Dose mapping out your content offer machine. So now you got this guy and he’s in here and you paid 50 cents. I’m out 50 cents but I got a list. OK. There we go. About 50 cents. But I got a list. Okay and now we’ve got this list. We’ve got this big database of people here’s our list. And our list has a certain. John wrote about it. Kay our list is the tomato people. All right. Here we are. Here are.
The tomato people.
All right. There’s our tomato. I like that. Incense their tomato people.
We will draw.
The tomato people here they are. These are the tomato people. Try not to laugh at my drawing. Tomato people here. OK. Your list is all these tomato people. OK. And they are interested in growing tomatoes and gardening and and tomato kind of stuff. OK. Good. I know that. That’s excellent. So now what we want to do is we want to map something out with what’s called a brain map our brain map is. Like this and it’s a mixture.
And offers. OK so you want to go through and you want to brainstorm. And you want to say if I.
Was interested in tomatoes what would I want to see. Well maybe you could send him something that says you know here’s tomato tip number one. Use alkaline water or whatever I don’t know I don’t grow tomatoes. We tried we spent like six hundred dollars on all these like. Garden beds. And we got one tomato and I told my wife. That’s the most expensive damn tomato I’ve ever seen. And the damn thing like fell and died. Our six hundred dollar tomato. Was no more. But. Moral of the story. People spend a lot of money to get tomatoes. I mean I just got to look at it. All right.
So what would they like. Maybe they would like. Gardening tips garden tips. Cool. What else would they like. Okay.
They might like maybe like tools tools like maybe like there’s old wagons and those little tomato things and in and like the low buckets or whatever and maybe maybe they’d like seeds. Okay here’s the best kind of seeds or maybe oh but they’d also like.
A growth. Chart. OK. Could that be good or maybe even like. Best time to plant.
Your tomatoes or maybe even like what else would they like. Maybe something like. What else would they like. Maybe some like canning tomatoes someone sets up about canning tomatoes.
Okay what about like cooking. You want to cook the tomato.
Or maybe something like add all kinds of stuff right. I’m not a tomato buff but hey you get the idea. Okay fertilizers maybe fertilizers first maybe plans on how to build your own raised garden beds. Okay. So so garden beds garden.
Okay. What else would we have. Like maybe timing or whatever.
Okay so we got all this stuff here and we’re like yay. So we got this content. OK so now we go through the best dirt stuff like that. Okay. So now we go through and we’re like good. So I can go and I could send all this stuff to our tomato guy and tomato guy here.
Is gonna get a smile.
I like that and he’s like man my face is jacked up but I’m still smiling because Marcus sent me all this cool stuff about tomatoes and my tomatoes are gonna be so tasty they’re gonna be so good and my tomato family is going to love it. Right. Woo hoo. We are gonna have the best tomatoes and this guy might even send you an email back with a picture of tomato saying man. Check this out I got a belt. I got the greatest tomato. Look at this because of what you told me.
All right so now what we got to do is we have to pair the content with offers. Pretty cool. So we’re like yay. If I give him garden tips maybe I could just go buy some gardening books on Click Bank. Or wherever. And and I can look at the gardening tips and I can find a couple of tips like I’ll find six tips out of a book of like. I don’t know a lot of tips and I send those and I’m like Tip number one is plant your tomato. In the sun.
Or whatever. Right give him good tips that I don’t know much about it but you get the idea. Play your tomato in the sun. And you talk to him about it. I planted my tomato in the sun and I found out that sometimes shade was this way. Used to have my tomato under a tree. Now it’s not under a tree and now it’s as big as can be. This is really great. It works really good. Here’s a picture my tomato by the way. I got this tip from this book over here. Affiliate link.
Pretty basic right. Got this tip from this book. If you like this tip there’s gonna be more other tips over here in the book. Number two. Here’s some tools I got the best five gardening tools need to have this this this and this.
Affiliate link affiliate link affiliate link affiliate link. Okay now they’re gonna say thank you because you gave him the less the tools and some of them if they don’t have the tools they’ll actually click and buy stuff. The question is is if you send them all this stuff seeds maybe there’s an affiliate program for seeds or maybe. You want to be a big dog and actually like get the seeds yourself and ship them out. You could do that or dropship or whatever or send them books or info products or whatever no info products are usually gonna be the most profitable and the lowest risk. Okay so you can actually later down the line you could come up with your own tomato book. Like literally you want to make a living at this. Get a bunch of things and test out a bunch of tomatoes and build your own business and you could probably make a good living in the tomato market. A lot of people are obsessed with these matters. Okay so seeds growth chart. Okay you can have little things like by week number one you should have a tomato this big is your tomato not that big. Well you need Click here to get this book to see what you’re doing wrong or whatever. Okay. Best time to plant. I got this best time to plant chart from this or whatever. Canning you could do canning supplies unlike Amazon affiliate. Cook tomatoes fertilizer. Garden beds. Home Depot coupons. Home Depot gift cards all kinds of stuff you can do. And here’s the question.
If I get a guy on my list in a really really take care of him and give him good tips. Is there anyone out there that doesn’t think I can make 50 cents over the course of a year with this guy. How many guys are like. No I think you probably can see how like there is as seen on TV tomato products that pay you like fifteen dollars and it only cost nine dollars to the user.
Like when you when you pair this what what I teach you about affiliate marketing and CPA marketing. It’s literally insane. So how many of you guys are like. Yes. I think if you only paid 50 cents to get a guy on your list you could turn a profit type type. Yes profit in the box.
- Type it in the box I want everyone to participate. Type. Yes. Profit.
They’re going to wait till I see a bunch of yes profits in their.
Looks like pretty much everyone is typing yes prophet. Then why aren’t you doing it.
Aren’t you doing it.
What is stopping you. From having a business like this. All right. Let’s hear what’s stopping you from this. Petraeus says he thinks it can only break even. I think you can make money if you do it right. Okay. What’s stopping you. What do you think is stopping you.
All right. No proper guidance. Well you got to join one of my courses we teach you. All this stuff in great detail. She had to do it all. All right.
When we look at this this is how it works. Here’s the cool thing I think. Let’s see if Part three is that. Yes. So. Mapping out your content. K. To go through.
You like. There you go. We got this OK got our list here. This is all our content and we make a list of. All the content stuff we’re going to write and this is what I do right. I go through it. I make a list of all the things I want to talk to you guys about and talk to other niches about and I get a list of it. I’m like Okay cool so we’re gonna go through and we’re going to look at the next part.
Okay. Part 3 content and offers right there. Now Part 3 is.
Can I get back up there.
Good enough. Okay. Part three. Is. The traffic recycling loop. Traffic. Recycling loops.
Here’s how it works. Mark is I don’t know how to set all this up. Should I use a blog. Should I use a click funnel. Should I use a click bank. Should I use a builder all should I use H2 UML. Should I just go out and do the rain dance and hope money falls. Well what I like to do is I like to use WordPress. OK. So we’re gonna do is we’re gonna set up the traffic recycling loop. This is why I like to use WordPress. Now if you guys are in one of my courses or the markets mentor dot m e Marcus mentor dot m e you get all the plugins that make all this work. Right. So if you’re here and you’re like Morgan’s I don’t have any tools I don’t have anyone to help me. No one is telling me how to do this. Go to Marcus mentor Academy.
Or get Marcus mentor. M E and sign up. It’s like two dollars a day. It’s dirt cheap.
Okay you get a free affiliate marketing new T-shirt. You get an affiliate marketing dude. Book that walks you through everything. And most importantly because shirts and books are great but you want to make money. What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna give you all of my custom WordPress plugins custom. These aren’t white labeled these aren’t. Other people this is like custom plugins I had a developer make according to my specifications so that you can do this. So here’s what the feedback loop looks like.
Okay you got the tomato people.
Here they are. Here is all your tomato people. You say tomato people game you. Here they are.
This is doing a little dance. This guy has three legs something’s wrong with him.
All right Erica. So there is art tomato people are tomato people come in and they’re like yay we want to check out your page in our page looks like this. And it’s got a big tomato and it’s like you want to grow tomatoes this big. Yay. Then what you want to do is put your name. An email. In the box. Yay. There you go. They put their name and email in the box OK. They go on your list. Next. Now this is all done with WordPress. This is a plug in in your mentor member’s area. Marcus mentor dot M E. That’s called funnel voodoo. It literally turned your WordPress into. A funnel.
Right. So very very very cool.
Okay so turns it into a funnel so you could collect a list. You could do all kinds of things really really cool. Okay. So they put the name and email on the list. Now some of these people aren’t going to put their name and email on the list so we’re going to end up with I don’t know.
Not as many as we’re up there. Okay so we’re just weeding it out. Okay. So there they are.
Now the people that did fill out the list that’s who we’re interested in. Like the other day someone was like Marcus. People don’t type in you or L’s anymore. And I was like I’m sitting here watching people do that live on my Web site. But he didn’t want to listen to reason. A lot of people like to argue with the old buddy Marcus but. Been doing this 20 years. I’ve got a couple grey hairs. I kind of know what’s going on so these people come in they put their name and email on the box.
They come over here to. Your thank you Page. Now this. Is very important. Because your thank you page is where you want.
To make your 50 cents back. Pretty cool right. So I pay 50 cents to get each of these guys on my list.
Okay now what I want to do is want to make my money back instantly. I don’t want to just put a bunch of money out there and hope that it works right. I want to actually actually. Do this stuff and make it work. So what I want to do is I want to put my best. Ofer.
Here OK in the tomato market if I was in the tomato market I would try to find an as seen on TV tomato offer.
That’s gonna be the best converter. Next best thing. Maybe like a toolbar or something free. Something that pays decent. Right. Like I’m looking for something with a low barrier of entry. That pays me between 2. And twenty five dollars. K I don’t want like a click bank book because. It’s probably gonna get a low sales amount. Although it could work. But probably probably want to go somewhere else. What’s up more hard hitting and we talk about this in my courses as well. So the thank you page is where you want to make your money back. Okay that’s the best offer. So we’re gonna go through and this is again this is all set up on WordPress. You can set this up in literally 45 minutes. It’s not hard to do. If you go over to Marcus mentors and EU sign up there’s a video right on the page that says here’s how to do it. And I guarantee even if you’ve never built a site before even if you’ve never bought a domain. Literally gonna be setup. Like. Click a button. Click a thing. There you go. It’ll cost a total of about. If you don’t have web hosting yet it’ll cost about 70 dollars for the year of web hosting and your free trial of the auto responders they give you a free trial of it so you don’t even have to pay for that yet. So you get 30 days to make money. Okay so there you have that. And even after that it’s only like nineteen dollars a month to calm down. Don’t get all mad.
Okay so you have your thank you page you have your opt in page here and you have your thank you page here. Yay. Great. Thank you page we want to recoup the money. Really good. Now what you also have is you have.
What’s called posts post. And you’ll see post on my site there what ranks and Google there what I send you to for my mailing list there whatever. Now your posts. Are going to be.
Like this. OK.
And they’re gonna have all the stuff that you did.
In part two. OK. So you’re gonna go through and you’ll be like OK we’re gonna make a post.
About garden tips we’re gonna make a post about tools. We’re gonna make a post about seeds we’re gonna make a post about a growth chart. OK plant time’s cooking stuff and we’re going to make.
Different posts about all these things. Now what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna make a helpful post where I came and check this out. Here’s some help on how to make your tomatoes good.
Whatever. Now on the post we have. Offers offer. Now I find it best to make the offer fit. What the post is about. So if it’s about tools. Put some tools if it’s about information put a book it’s about seeds put a seed if it’s about some you know kind of make it fit.
Now you’re gonna mail these out and these are gonna go out automatically in your auto responder and then boom you’re going to make money as they come back. Now here’s the cool part. You’re gonna build content while making money with your list. The search engines will start to pick this content up. People will start to buy stuff and it’s just going to start to take off. If you stick with it and if you don’t stick with it if you’re like Marcus I didn’t do anything. Why didn’t I make money. And I’ll be like Well let me check. I got to look at my notes but.
I think. It’s just a hunch here. Think it might be because you didn’t do anything. I. Mean maybe it might be. I know I know. But you gotta look at this objectively because so many people are so focused on getting a quick result right now. That they don’t.
Really realize that the result can happen fast. They just have to do the right stuff right. They spent so much time dreaming about a result and trying to get the result and they get obsessed with the chase and they don’t get obsessed with the actual work it’s like marriage right. You go through you meet the girl of your dreams you’re like everything’s going to be wonderful and then you you spend one hundred thousand dollars on a wedding and then after the wedding and the honeymoon you go and you sit down and you’re like. Oh shit. Well I guess we got to talk to each other now. You know what do you get in the mail. Honey you know I got some thing about my tomatoes from Marcus and you know a couple other things and you’re like wow.
When I was chasing this girl to marry I thought life was gonna be so splendid. But now it’s just the day to day stuff. That’s not bad. It’s just not sworn did. Right and we got to look at that and say this is how marketing is. People look at it and I get people all time who were like.
This one person who wanted to fly from a different country just to take a picture with me and I’m like you have seen my face. Right. Because you might want to rethink that. Might break your camera. But.
They think my life is really glamorous and they’re like wow Marcus you know you do all this stuff. It’s like well. Half the time I sit in my backyard office and write sales pitches and and make videos and. Make a little marketing pages.
Right. And that’s why people quit because the glitter and the glamour isn’t so much there when it comes to the day to day operation. But here’s the deal. The day to day operation in my opinion. Is easier than a job like if I had to go to a job I wouldn’t be able to like. Yesterday it was like 10:00 in the morning and I’m like I feel like going swimming. I just went swimming and I didn’t work to like four. And I wouldn’t be able to do that at a job. And you know we’re gonna go do other stuff and then vacation all the time. And you look at it and it’s like okay. Those parts can be good but those are only there because I do the little work. Like. Writing content is not that hard. How many of you guys are like Yeah I guess if I if I had to I could make hundred pieces of content or 50 or 25 or whatever. Right it’s not that hard. And Doro says it sounds fun compared to a job I’ve had jobs and they suck. Like that’s why I only worked like two years in my life. As a regular job. Because I was like This sucks. I don’t want to do that. I want to call my own shots. I was talking my daughter about it yesterday and she was like we were going to get something printed for our male promo I’m doing a male promo right now and. We’re going to get something printed. And she’s like well how does this work. You know. And I’m like well we’ve got gotta send a thousand cause we’ve got a thousand requests on an opt in page with Name. Email. Phone Number postal address.
Like a thousand. That’s a lot. And they’re still going I just dropped it yesterday. And so she’s like. Well how much do you make when you send these thousand things out. And I said Well you know if it goes right the way that I think it will based on other things probably looking at about 60000 bucks and she’s like.
Don’t people make that in a year. I say yeah. People make that in a year. And she’s like and you’re literally going to make that in like.
A week. Just mailing out letters. And.
I’m like Yeah. And you got to think about this objectively now again Results not typical implied or guaranteed. Been doing this 20 years. I know what I’m doing. And I could teach you what I’m doing. If you want to learn it how do you guys are liking this so far. All right scale of one to 100. Let me know. And then as we go through so that the traffic recycling route loop rather. OK so you’re gonna have your email list up here. You’re gonna send them to these blog posts. Hey. Super easy.
They’re gonna get all this stuff. Now what’s gonna happen. Is all these clicks are going to start to multiply.
And you’re going to start to make more money and these are going to start to grow and they’re going to start to show up in the search engines if you do it the way that I teach you and it’s all gonna compound. But the problem is this. The problem is is people get a course they set something up like this and they don’t even do a good job. I know because I critique it. People come to me and they’re like Marcus I tried this other guy’s stuff and you know what do you think. And I’m like. How do I nicely tell you that your site totally sucks.
And I’m like. You know I kind of don’t like it. Whatever. And then they quit. And. They never run traffic. And they never even test anything. And they never really build it. And this is why they don’t get success. But you can actually do this and it’s just as hard as what you’re doing right now. I think it’s harder to go buy a thing. Try to learn it.
Give up and buy another thing and try to learn it and give it. You might as well just stick with something. You might as well be like Marcus I’m going to get your stuff I’m going to stick with it. You know you say it’s going to work. Let’s see it work. But the problem is is so many people quit and so many people. They. Don’t understand the value of a market they don’t understand that a tomato guy on your list is worth 50 cents. Plain and simple they don’t understand like for me to send out that postal mailing cost well over a thousand dollars probably. Too. OK and people go Van I’ve got to invest two thousand dollars. That’s crazy. I’m like Yeah we’ll try it out if I get one sale I break even. There you go. So that’s what you got to look at is you have to be like OK. This is how we’re gonna make it work right. Like Thoreau says failing is much harder. Okay. Now once you’re past that part. Everything is a numbers game. All it is is a big numbers game. If I know okay I can make four bucks on every tomato person per year. How many tomato people do I want to get on my list. I should done. Like as many as I possibly can. Once you have it dialed in once you get it working once you look at it and we help you with this you just go and you make it happen. Now we are still taking preorders for simple sites bootcamp which is starting at the end of the month. Simple sites Bootcamp is a 16 week course. This is going to be unlike anything else because we are actually going to be teaching you sales are going to be teaching you the stuff I learned with direct mail and you know teach you the stuff I learned with magazine ads which I’ve never taught before. OK. It’s a 16 week course we go through everything step by step. We show you how to set this up. We go through and you go in and in week one you’re like I got this and we look at it and Week Five.

We actually have a live training every Tuesday just for our mentor people. You come on Tuesday we look at your sites you ask whatever questions you want. You go through weird like grip and people sign up. It’s incredible. Like it’s well worth it. And you get that all for the whopping price of two dollars a day or something like that. I think it’s two dollars and 50 cents and you get an affiliate dude shirt and the book. I mean come on. Can’t beat that right. All right so any questions on this. While you guys get signed up for the programs. Let me know.
All right anyone getting a ha moment today. You guys learn a lot. And by the way if you’re new.
Our so looks like we ended a little early today. Which is good. Okay. Let’s take some Q and A since we ended early. How do you go from the thank you page to the post that is set up with the funnel voodoo plug in. That’s a plug in you get as part as Mark is a part of Marcus mentor dot m e. What you’re gonna do is you’re gonna set it up to where your pages have the opt in box and your post have specific offers for the post and then you’re just going to link to it. Right. So like your link to it from me see if I can bring it up there wouldn’t be one second. Where we go. OK. So what we would want to do is you’re gonna have your pages. So you’ll see like on affiliate marketing dude. Like this.
You’re going to see we have an opt in on the page here. OK so they can put their name and email. They go to a different page. They could put their name and email over here. We have the products over here we have reviews. And then so you can see like on a lot of the stuff we’re asking for the name and email. These are pages and this is all controlled by the funnel voodoo. And then if you were to go and look at Google for the site you’re going to see a post. So you have like let’s do Wix affiliate. If we go here. You’re going to see like this is a post right so I can actually link to this post. I could send this out. In my auto responder email. And then I’d send him to this page and then these are all the posts here. I could just send them to all this content. So make sense.
Maya Yeah you’re good. I just asked him on on P.C. moneymaking e-commerce support site. How do you write a post. Just click Add post and start writing. It’s easier than Microsoft Word. And we teach that in the. In the markets mentor me as well. And if you guys are not in Marcus mentor me. I don’t know what you’re thinking because there’s a lot of good stuff in there. Which is good. What’s the best email to get in touch with support. None. We don’t use email. We use our support site. P.S. moneymaking dot.com.
Thorough. Yes the funnel voodoo is what formats the entire block. This is using funnel voodoo. And click voodoo. Or. Yeah I think it’s called Click voodoo used to be called smart affiliate. So the plugins on this site are the plugins that you get it controls. This are not this but it controls the opt in thing like on this page. It controls this stuff on the sidebar. Puts the ads here rotates them and finds you the best ad puts these ads here. Notice how they don’t look like ads. They actually look at content. And it also puts this footer here. And everything is tracked as well. There’s literally like. A bazillion plugins not a bazillion but I think there’s like 12 really good plugins. Did I find the lottery extension. What’s the lottery extension.
Has there ever been a plugin called dropdown voodoo. We had one a while back. It’s actually included there’s a dropdown maker included in funnel voodoo. Can you get the plug ins with simple to make profits. Yes. As a simple sites big profits member you get a month free of. Marcus Benjamin. So yeah. Zaki the 16 week program is simple sites boot camp. That’s a whole different one. That one is 12 77 right now. The normal price is 1997 and it comes with 16 weeks alive meaning everything that once pricier for people who want like hands on want to work with me. Marcus mentor me as our inexpensive one that’s like a coaching kind of thing. And you can cancel whenever you want. On the markets mentor me. Do I automatically send posts as they are published or do you always schedule for me I always do a broadcast. But you can schedule it. There are tools where when you put a new blog post it will actually it’ll send out an e-mail.
I don’t do that but you can.
Is funnel voodoo in simple sites to make profits. The Mentor Program is free for a month with simple sites. So. Yes.
All right guys any other questions let me know.
Let’s see. Where are your posts located on your blog. You’ll be able to get them. They’re usually like a little less here if you have the list enabled. OK. Which course should you choose. If you can afford simple sites bootcamp do that and don’t look back. You’ll love it. I mean that is an incredible course. Being able to hang out live in Orlando is one of the biggest perks. So if you can’t afford that do that. Otherwise do Marcus mentor Amy. Are there comparable free WordPress plugins. Well there’s probably stuff that you could piece together to make it work. But like. Is it not worth two dollars a day. Right and you can cancel you get like go in there two dollars. So here’s how it works. Marcus mentor me when I ship out your shirt and your book. I actually spend more than your first month costs. It actually cost me more to have you there the first month. So if you’re like I want free plug ins and I won’t pay for nothing you can really get one over on me by buying a month of the stuff download all the plug ins get the shirt get all the stuff I’m out two bucks. You get all this stuff and then just cancel. Like if that’s what you’re after if you’re like huh.
I mean I pulled one over on Marcus. And you’re like I want free stuff. And you could do that if you want.
But you got to look at like what is the price of free. Free always has a price. It’s always a free price to free. That would be bad karma that you know we had a good story I’ll tell you a good story. So we went to the 21 pilots concert on Father’s Day and we were in the line getting out of the parking structure. The funniest thing I wish I had my camera going. This lady wouldn’t let a guy in. So he decided to cut in and he FLIPPED HER OFF WITH A BIG OLD finger and he was smiling as he flipped her off. And then he crashed into the car in front of him. Funniest damn thing ever. That was great. Do I still offer the banner ads training I showed last week. Yes and yes we will cover advertorial sort of. Paul I’m not sure what you’re asking. Tech tips what. What course Are you looking at. Imran that would be a good question for our Tuesday ones. And there’s actually a plug in that does that for you. How can I get the link for the live webinars on the third day of the week. I know what you about. It’s always the same link every week.
All right guys. If you are going to join boot camp. Sign up now. Because that big male promotion. Is going to sell boot camp. And that will sell it out.
How fast until my site starts making money there’s no way anyone could know like there are people that follow stuff and they make money. Today. There are people that never make money. It just depends on what you do. But what I try to do is teach you everything right. So I’m like Here’s how it works in a real straight up objective way. Kevin. If you’re looking for that. Just use our support site.
2 on if you are in the high ticket net you had just joined the Tuesday call.
Tuesday call next week. You bring your site we’ll help you out. I took a niche. Where do I ask the questions. Tuesday call. Everyone that needs help should go on the Tuesday call. If you can’t make the Tuesday call. Figure out a way to make the Tuesday call it is that important if you care about this stuff like. You got a you got to get in there and get some skin in the game you’ve got to be like I’m going to make the calls. I’m going to do this stuff like You can’t sit there and be like I ordered it. Now.

You want the business. Make it work. You guys know the sacrifices I put to make this business work. Like a lot. Yes. Next Tuesday there is not a Tuesday calling in to be not around. But it’s 3 to five. Do people who bought your simple sites course qualify for the Tuesday call. As long as they are a current Marcus mentor me member. Can.

That way you guys always have access to the support the replays the new plugins everything. So even if you have my other staff like you about simple sites a long time ago. Get on. The mentor program as well. Tuesday calls are absurd. Like. There’s so much value there it’s not even funny. And if you break it up. So the Tuesday calls we do four to five a month. So if we do five a month times two hours each. That’s 10 hours. Divided by your seventy seven dollars. You’re paying seven dollars and 70 cents an hour. You’re getting all the plug ins you’re getting all the tools you’re getting all the replays you’re getting live interaction you get people to look at your site. I mean we actually redesigned to people’s sites on the call yesterday. So like literally how many of you guys are like no Marcus that is not worth seven dollars. I can spend my seven dollars on a hamburger and I think that’s a much better investment right. Seriously you gotta you gotta get priorities. Gotta look at this objective. Got to really focus.

Yeah because you might not need to get it it just depends on what you got.
Isn’t it competitively risky to reveal one’s Web site on a call with other people in the same game. Not really. Like. You guys have seen me reveal all my sites. Do you know how many times have been copied. Like none. The fact of the matter is is people don’t do stuff like they literally a lot of people just don’t do stuff. Be to be an action taker and do the stuff to warn you if you’re not to get an edge. Get them on support and they’ll help you.
But African flight staff That’s your worry. But. Yeah. You’re just it doesn’t make sense or about that.

Every YouTubeR needs this.
That’s right. If you’re serious about growing an audience on YouTube and actually making money from it you need these three things.
It’s without question. You gotta have these things. If you want to grow and I’m going to show you exactly what these three things are and we’re starting right now. Hey guys welcome back. I’m Marcus a.k.a. the affiliate marketing dude. And today I’m going to show you the three things that every YouTuber needs to have if they want to grow and build a business from their channel. And if you like this kind of stuff. I’d appreciate if you’d subscribe because then you can get my latest videos and join us live and ask questions here when we do live trainings to teach you all about how to build your audience online. For right now let’s dive into those three things that you need to grow your audience here on YouTube. Number one the first thing you must have is a good domain name. This is a name that’s going to establish you in your market in your niche with your viewers. So it’s got to be something easy to remember. Here on my channel I use affiliate marketing do dot.com and affiliate dude dot.com. See how they’re easy to remember and they go with my channel. So whatever your channel is whatever the objective is. Put that in a domain name that’s easy to remember. Make sure you use a dot com because sometimes people don’t know the difference between dot coms and all the other stuff. So get a dot com to stand out. This is very very important and crucial because it’s going to have a place for your visitors to go and watch other videos get other tutorials and everything like that. Oftentimes here on the channel you’ll see that I recommend some things or I give a lesson and then I say go over to my site to get the download PBF of the lesson that you just learned. This is a great way to get visitors to go to your domain build up domain authority get traffic and bring him back over and over and over again. So get a good domain name. Very important. And by the way I actually have a special set of instructions on everything I’m talking about in this video that you can get over it video hacks dot com. That’s a video hack Ask.com you can get the list. Let’s dive in to number two. Number two is very important.
That is an auto responder an auto responder is a way to take your visitors that are watching your videos here on YouTube. And when they watch your videos you usually have a link in the description that link in the description is going to go to your domain name which is going to have your audio responder. Now what is an auto responder an auto responder is that thing you see on sites where it says put your name and email for more info. And it’s got like a big submit button.
Now what this auto responder is going to do is going to capture all the names and e-mails of the people that are checking your site out and want to learn more about you and put them into a database. This database is extremely important because you could use this database to send emails when you come out with a new video thus building your audience building rapport with your community and starting like a little group of people who know like and trust you and want to get more content from you. This is extremely important because every time you come out with a new video you can now send it to all your visitors instantly. You are going to have new eyeballs on your video. Those are eyeballs just for clarification. Now in addition to having videos and everything like that you can also send emails with links to offers and various things you promote. So let’s say you have a tech channel you have a tech channel that talks about all kinds of tech things and cameras and recorders and all kinds of stuff like that and you get these people watching your videos. Now what’s going to happen is a very small percentage is going to click the links in the description. Extremely small an even smaller percentage is actually going to buy the product. So instead of putting that link in the description straight to an affiliate offer what I like to do is I’d like to say go get a PDF download of what I just talked about with the links to the best places to buy these products with links. Very cool and best prices. So now they’re going to go over there they’re going to put their name and email and I can send them offers over and over and over again as long as I want it as long as it’s something relevant to whatever my channels about. [00:04:25][93.1]
[00:04:26] And because of this your viewers are going to be extremely happy.
[00:04:36] Thus growing your audience making you more money and growing a community in your niche very important. Now the third thing every YouTube needs is a custom three director. A custom redirect or something that’s going to build links on your site. For example I like to use affiliate dew dot com because it’s very short. Now I could make a video and say go to affiliate dew dot com slash money and I get set up a link very quickly in about three seconds that will direct them wherever I want them to go. Now this is very important because I can change the link at the drop of a hat. I could see how many people click the link and it’s a link on my domain instead of one of those big Liza crazy link redirects. That’s really hard to type in. Imagine trying to tell people go to a bit dot l y slash one two three. Question mark q r w 5 4 7. Instead I just say go to affiliate News.com slash money or something like that. Very very simple. So a custom redirect or something that’s going to catch the eyes of your visitor in the description of your video and even something you can mention on the video on the screen. Just like on this video how I tell you to go get the PDA download of all these things where to get them how to set it up and everything like that over a video hack Ask.com. See how easy that is very simple very easy to set up the redirect and boom I can get you to go there and get that PDA off and build everything up. And this is how my latest videos get more eyeballs on them. This is how I make more money and this is how I engage with my audience in a real cool way. As a bonus step number four what I would also do is set up a WordPress. [00:06:18][102.2]
What a WordPress blog is going to do is it’s going to allow you to post your latest videos and get extra search engine traffic. So instead of just getting traffic from YouTube now you can post your video on your blog with a little description and boom it’s going to start to rank in the search engines. People are going to start to binge watch even more and the amount of visitors that go to your site is going to skyrocket. [00:06:41][18.2]
You could literally set up a WordPress blog in about 15 minutes. I’m going to show you exactly how over at video hacks dot com. So we’re going to go over here. You’re going to learn how to set this up and then what’s going to happen is now you’re going to have tons of pages for each of your videos. I show you how to post the video on the page in a very written in a very easy way and then you put a description and imagine what’s going to happen when you now have all these video pages on your site on your blog that are getting search engine traffic getting visitors back to you. And boom. Now everyone’s going to start to recognize you as an authority in your niche. These are the four things that a YouTube are absolutely needs in my opinion to grow make money and become a influencer. That actually makes change which is really cool. If you want to learn how to set all these up and get this list. I have a special guide for you that’s going to walk you through it. You can set everything that I just mentioned up in about 45 minutes using this guide going to video hack Ask.com put your name and email on the guide. Not only are you going to see exactly how this works but you’re also going to be able to set this up in a very very quick way and be off and running. Literally like right now. Thanks again for watching. I’m Marcus. Make sure you subscribe and hit the bell if you like this video. Post a comment. Give us a light and check out the next video that’s going to pop up around here somewhere. All about how to grow your YouTube channel make more money and pretty much do all that kind of stuff. So if you like that. Check out that other video. It’s going to pop up around here somewhere. Thanks again for watching. I’m Marcus a.k.a. the affiliate marketing dude.
How could some kid without a college education make over ten million dollars on the Internet.
Well we’re going to talk about that. I’m going to show you exactly what I did and what you need to know if you plan on making money without going to college. And we’re starting right now. When I was a kid I was really good at math. I went to high school and I took math tests and I always got A’s on the test. But there was one problem and the problem was is I didn’t know how to show my work.
So I would do my math problem and I’d get the answer but I wouldn’t show any work and so the teacher thought I was cheating which meant that I failed the class which meant that my hopes of college were pretty much down the drain. So instead what I decided to do is not go to school which was probably not a good idea gotten a lot of trouble. But at any rate there I was and because of that I wasn’t really college material. I graduated from one of those continuation schools and when I graduated I didn’t have that much money.
Now what I did is I worked a little odd jobs I worked at McDonald’s sold some computers and in my part time what I did was I had a magic business. I would actually do magic shows for local companies and for local birthday parties and things like that churches and stuff. And so I was I was learning magic and I made a little bit of side money but nothing really that big. I was pretty much broke because my brother and I moved out when I was about 15 years old and we had to pay rent and everything. So I had to figure out a way to make this work.
And in California rents are not very cheap. So there I was I was doing my magic doing my work and one day I was trying to build my magic business up and I came across this ad in the local magic magazine. It looked like this and it promised to show magicians how to get more bookings how to make more money as magicians and so I went through and I was like OK this is pretty cool. And I learned the art of advertising I learned that I could just change the words on an ad and that was the difference between like getting a lot of money and no money. And so I kind of got hooked. I was like wow are you kidding me.
Like seriously changing words on an ad is the difference between making nothing and making lots of money. Like seriously it’s pretty cool right. And it’s crazy because changing the words on the ad What’s the difference between nine hundred dollars a month in bookings and like five thousand dollars a month in bookings which to me was like wow and I’ll make five grand a month. That’s pretty cool. And at that point I could have just stopped and been happy with the extra bookings but instead I started to look into it and say well if the words on the paper could be the difference between five thousand a month and nine hundred a month then I think I want to learn the art of writing words on paper. And so I went through and I started studying marketing and I was like OK let’s learn about marketing and advertising and how to write these ads and and what makes them work.
And I remember something I heard from Jim Morone and he said that formal education i.e. college will make you a living but self education can make you a fortune. And so I decided to dive in and self educate myself about marketing and advertising and what makes these ads work and what makes them not work. And so I decided to start testing things out with mailing letters out to local companies building Web sites. I even ran some ads in magazines for business and magazines for magic and doing things like that. And I became a real student of writing these ads because I figured hey here’s all these people that are working their ass off for sixty thousand dollars a year after investing like hundreds of thousands of dollars in college. That to me didn’t sound like the greatest investment to me.
I thought well what if I could learn this art of writing ads like this ad here which cost a quarter of a million dollars to run which you guys can look at these ads they cost a fortune to run and they keep running them because they work now. They work because of what I learned and what I taught myself which is how to write a good ad that gets a response. And because I learned that skill I was able to take that and use that online and make millions of dollars from the comfort of my own home without having a college degree or even stepping foot in a college once in my life.
So let me talk to you about what I think is the biggest money getting opportunity of all time and you can do this without having a college degree. [00:04:10][7.8]
So a college degree you don’t need.
That’s our college hat. Don’t need a college degree. So one of the things that we got to learn is how do we want to make this work. Because right now there are billions of people on the Internet right now probably millions right now but there’s billions connected to the Internet and these people on the Internet are looking for stuff. They want information they want to learn about things they want discounts and all kinds of things.
Now the key is is that these are captivated people this is you’re captivated audience. Now if you were able to write an ad or a letter to these people and get them to buy something or get them to do something or fill out a form or click a link or even call a phone number if you could get them to do that then you could make a ton of money. This is the secret a lot of people don’t know because it’s not really taught anywhere they teach you the basics of advertising and everything like that but they don’t teach you the real world stuff about marketing. Now if I could go here as a business guy and I’m like Here I am as a business guy. I don’t know why but apparently I will wear bell bottoms. OK.
So here we are. I’m the business guy. OK. And let’s say that I’m over here.
And I have something to sell okay maybe I’m affiliate and I can sell something and get paid. Maybe I find a product that works really good and I can sell it and get paid. Right. So here we go. [00:05:36][10.1]
We think we got all these companies that are willing to pay us these big moneybags. All right. Here’s our big moneybags.
OK. They’re willing to pay us moneybags when people do stuff which is cool. So all I have to do is learn to take a link from The Advertiser Web site. This is a custom link for me and I get paid when people buy things click things download things fill out forms call phone numbers whatever it is you name it.
I get paid and sometimes I’ll get paid like two dollars just to give away a downloader. I’ll get paid one hundred dollars to get someone to fill out an application for a credit card or something like that. Now my job as a marketer again remember that skill that I learned without college is being able to speak to these people in a way that’s going to work. Let’s say these people over here are interested in travel. OK. And this is an example you guys are going to like. So they’re interested in travel and they want to fly all around the world in their jet setting whatever it is.
OK whatever it is they’re interested in travel and they like discounts on travel. All right so I got all these people looking up discounts on travel over here. Let’s say I have this link and this link is for a credit card. Sign up form that gives them rewards on travel. Right. So these people can save money on travel by using this special credit card. All I got to do is write a good ad for these people. Send them to the credit card sign up form and I get paid one hundred dollars or more. Every time someone applies. Imagine if I get 10 of those a day that’s 1000 dollars a day in money.
I could be making compare that with the average starting salary for someone who just graduated college. You’re looking at like forty thousand to sixty thousand dollars a year and you still got to pay your student loans which is kind of insane. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not knocking college here. I’m glad my doctor and my lawyer went to college. It’s a very good thing right. I’m very glad they did. And for people like that I think college is the thing. But some of you guys out there might be looking at it and maybe you’re looking at a career later in life or maybe you’re looking at.
Should I go to college or start my own business. And we’ve got to look at it and say do the numbers add up for us and do we know what we want to do.
Because I think there’s much more efficient ways to make money because if you’re able to get 10 people to fill out this form boob you just made yourself three hundred and sixty thousand dollars a year which is pretty much as much as a good doctor makes. And this is exactly what I’ve been doing over the last 20 years to make over 10 million dollars on the Internet driving people to things because I know the ad to write and I know the people to talk to and it’s a very simple process and if you want to learn how to write ads to put money in your pocket in a really simple way then I urge you to subscribe and click the bell notification.

In other words this has nothing to do with what the other guys are telling you works. This is something diabolical that works like a charm. Hop in the back yard office and I’m gonna show you exactly how my number one SEO trick works like a charm. Time and again to get you more traffic. For free.
All right. Welcome inside. I’m glad you’re here.

That way you get my latest videos and you can join us live and ask questions on Wednesdays right here on the channel. We do a big live presentation where everyone hops on and ask questions and everything like that. So subscribe click the bell for right now let’s dive in and let’s talk about this big secret now. The first thing that must be noted which you should probably already know by now is that the keyword is everything all right.
That’s not the secret but you got to get a kind of preface it with that. The keyword is everything having the wrong keywords in SEO is going to make or break you. That’s plain and simple. Now once you have your keyword list how are you going to rank forum and how you get ranked on Google and other search engines literally like instantly or within a couple of minutes.
Because you know I’m kind of impatient and I like to wait around for months and months and months to get my first visitor to my site. So you’re going to notice some icons here we’re going to cover these icons in just a minute. Well let’s go over to Google let’s take a look at what’s going on.
The biggest secret for SEO stuff is to go to Google here and type in your keyword. All right. So bear with me bear with me. All right we’re going to type in our word. Let’s say we’re going for chicken parmesan recipes. Here’s the thing. Google actually tells you exactly what it wants because what it wants is ranking on the first page. If they didn’t want it. It wouldn’t be there. Now what do I mean by that. Well what I mean is here for chicken parmesan recipes you can see the competition’s pretty hefty. You got some kind of recipe up here some recipes down here and other things like that. OK. So very cool. So we can see that they like recipe type sites.
We can go through we could look at these sites and be like OK yeah. They want recipes. The average recipe article is this long and this is how it’s laid out. Very simple right. We could see that they obviously have ratings. So having a rating is probably gonna get you as well. Now this is where it gets even better. Like if we do something like how to make chicken parmesan what we’re going to notice here is it starts to switch things up a little. We’ve got the recipes like on the one before but now we’ve got videos. Hey pretty cool right. I can actually literally put a video up and I can pop up there if I do it right.
Very very fast but Marcus how do I make a video. Well you literally just read the article you were going to write for SEO and put some screenshots to it. [00:03:11][9.7]
[00:03:11] OK. So very cool. We see videos there now on some other search terms. It will change as well.
We have a list of different recipes here. We got our videos so obviously we want to structure our SEO strategy around what’s already out there.
OK really cool really basic I know it’s pretty easy but we’re going to get into some more detailed stuff in just a minute and we’re going to go through and take a look at another keyword. Let’s say we want to go for something like make money online. Now again we see some ads up here. We see some kind of article here. We see videos again really important. And we can keep scrolling down and see if there’s something like a forum or something like a message board where people are posting and commenting and stuff like that where you could actually get involved in your market. Right.
So you go out there and you can get back links and hopefully it will work or you could go to a site that’s already ranking put your own back link up there get traffic instantly and then eventually you’ll start to get ranking as well but you’re going to get traffic instantly which is cool. Now also notice here on Make Money Online we also have images right. Really really important to get images down here which is really cool right. So a lot less competitive for images than it is for actual search engine rankings. OK. So we can get our image ranked pretty easily. Now let’s say we wanted to search for something like Italian food. Now first of all spell it right unlike me and we look at Italian food and now we could see Italian food near us which is like the map thing. So obviously if I wanted to rank for this I would need to get involved in those maps.
Now here’s something kind of interesting. I didn’t really expect to see for Italian food. But we got to remember the word Italian food overall in the entire world gets a lot of traffic. So we got to look at this and we got to think and put our thinking caps on. Right now we’re going to see down here. Hey check this out. It says top stories. So there’s actually stories news stories about Italian food and they get ranked on Google which means that if I did a press release which is a news story about Italian food I could probably start to get picked up for some of my keywords like that.
Yes that’s exactly what I mean. Check it out. There’s not that much competition for Italian food like this one was June 7th. June 6 May 31 right. Not a whole lot of stuff and it’s not directly related to the word Italian food. So like this is something you can do right. This way to get in on trends and get lots of traffic. It’s a lot better than spending months to get your first visitor right. I mean.
I. Said I like to do. Now here’s an interesting one for like body building workout log. You can see images pop up here which is really cool. We got forums that pop up that we can get involved in and start answering questions and lead people back to our site. Here’s some more forums more forums and then hey check this out. There’s actually a PDF that ranks for a bodybuilding workout log. Interesting. We also have Amazon that’s ranking which means I could put up a simple bodybuilding workout log put it on Amazon and probably use Amazon to rank my thing and give it away for 99 cents or something like that.
Here’s another PD F here. Right. So we could actually see exactly what Google wants by doing a little search and then we literally just give Google what it wants and we start to rank really really really fast. Now this doesn’t work on super competitive words like make money online but you might be able to get something like bodybuilding workout log which will get you a decent amount of traffic while you’re trying for the bigger word.
So what I want you to remember is that for each search term you’re going after there’s going to be certain things on Google that literally is like a road map telling you what Google wants whether it’s something like an image whether it’s something like news whether it’s a map type thing whether it’s videos whether it’s shopping sites for example if we go over here and we do cheapest laptop right you’re going to see shopping sites up here which we can get in the shopping sites like that you can see different review sites and things like that really really cool really easy. We could also see videos right. So you’re going to see different things that Google wants. And the other search engines one as well for this stuff that works really good.
You might see articles if you see articles what kind of articles are they. What is Google seemed to be ranking that’s how your content should be structured. You also might see things like review sites different types of attachments or PDA FS or spreadsheets or things like that. Facebook Groups oftentimes show up in the search engines and Pinterest as well. So what I want you guys to do is number one pick a good keyword. If you don’t know how to pick a good keyword check out the video that’s going to pop up at the end of this video. Also put it in the description. Very important for keyword research. That’s the one thing I’ve been doing for 20 years it’s made me the most money is picking the right keyword.
And that’s what you should do as well. And then also go through and look at what’s ranking. Follow along that guide. Give Google what it wants and watch your traffic grow. Pretty much overnight. If you do it the way that I teach you if you like this kind of stuff again make sure you subscribe click the bell notification and if you want me to teach you all the traffic methods and everything about affiliate marketing and SEO and everything like that personally.
