Hey guys! It’s Marcus here.
Today what we’re going to do is talk about what internal linking is,
how it works, and how it can help you make money online.
But first I’d like to start up with a story.
This is a story my grandfather told me several years ago about when he used to work as a gas station attendant.
You see, there was this gas station off the highway. Let’s put this gas station up here and what he did is he said, “You know I’m gonna work here and get a certain amount per gallon that I pump.” That’s how he was paid. Now along the way, he said, “Hey you know what, these people traveling on the highway would probably be interested in getting soda. I think they’d be interested in chips and stuff and candy.” And this is back in the 40s or 50s I think it was the 50s something like that.
He said, I think people would be interested in soda chips and candy. So he asked the gas station guy. He said, “You know since I’m paid just on the amount I pump, can I sell some stuff to your customers and have the profit?” He said, “Sure it’ll be my guest.” So he went and purchased cokes at wholesale chips at wholesale and candy at wholesale and offered it to the gas station people. He found that he could make a good living. Actually got the down payment for his first house using this method by just offering something else to people who already existed.
Now I want you to take a look at what was happening here. Because the highway was there with the traffic already, he was simply diverting people and utilizing the traffic that was already there.
Very important! That’s going to have a big big part to do with this INTERNAL LINKING STRATEGY. So remember this story where Grandpa wit and offer different things to people who are already there. Great story, learned a lot from him. Good man.
Now let’s take a look at what internal linking is and what it has to do with you.
The art of internal linking has to do with the ability to be able to direct traffic. You are going to do traffic and basically what’s going to happen is, you are going to take the traffic. The traffic’s here and you’re going to direct them where they should go. The highway is the traffic. These are the people coming to you, saying we want this certain thing. By knowing that they’re on the certain highway, they are on by way of keywords, by way of sight you advertise on, by way of whatever you’re using to get them to your site.
That’s what you know, that they’re interested in.
And your goal is to either make money by selling ads. You could sell ads or you could sell space on your site much in the same way that the gas station guy purchased or rented the place on the highway, because he knew those people were going to need gas. Obviously, if you’re driving on the highway, you need gas of course until hybrids come out in a bigger way.
So the idea is you could either rent banner space. So the highway here is your website. This is where all the traffic goes. If you don’t know how to get traffic, don’t worry. We’re going to talk about I in another video. So the traffic is on your site. Now what you could do is could put advertise here things and have people purchase banner ads. That would be an example of external linking. Because what happens is, you’re renting the space and once they click on that, they are out of your control. So you’re basically directing them somewhere else.
That would be the example of banner ad. So keep that advertise here, up here as our example.
Now what I like to do is I like to control the traffic the way that I want because if I was to offer banners on my site, I might get a couple hundred bucks a month. Maybe a couple thousand a month, depending on the site.
But I know that. I know my customers better than any advertiser out there and you can do the same because you have the data.
So our goal is to direct them to things that they would want much in the same way that my grandpa
We can anticipate what they would want also. So by driving on the highway, we know that some people are going to get hungry. So what we could do is we could build a website about food places. We could build a website about food places. What we’re doing is we’re taking the traffic here and directing them to another one of our properties that is about an expensive type thing. So they’re here and they’re just looking up driving. And we’re diverting them into something like the hamburger place or the food place or whatever. Hopefully, this is making sense to you.
Another thing that they could want is auto repair. Let’s say, they hear a weird sound driving along the highway and they need auto repair. That’s another thing we can direct them to. That would be a sight that we own about you know, hey if your car is doing these things here’s what you need to do. And of course, directing them to different auto places.
Another thing we can do is direct them to buying a new car. Say, “Hey man, you got an old junky car or whatever. Get a new one. Here’s how you can get new one with no money down and you know bucks a month or whatever it is.” Another thing, obviously the most obvious one here would be gas. Obviously, these cars are going to need gas so we could divert them there.
So here are four things that we are anticipating that the market is going to want, based on where they’re at. They’re on the highway. Now in your market, the highway is your website and the traffic is how they got there. So you own this piece of the highway that they’re traveling along the internet, which is your website and you know why they got there much in the same way that you would know, hey these people came from a certain part of the city to get to this part of the highway.
Very much the same way but in your instance, it’s keywords. It’s keywords. So it’s like, these people got here because they were looking up how to reduce acid reflux or how to cook beef stroganoff or whatever it is. They’re looking up these certain terms. So your job is to take these people that are on the highway and say, “Hey guys, you know what, why don’t you check out auto repair?” And you direct this guy to auto repair because he’s interested in it. He’s a man. Here’s what you need to do if your cars thumping around or whatever. Another guy comes up and say, “Okay great! What do you need?” Well your car looks kind of old, why don’t you go over here and get a new car? or Hey man, you look like you’re running on empty there. Why don’t you go get some gas? And you direct him to gas. Or Hey man, you guys look pretty hungry. Want to get some food? And on and on you go, taking each person and directing them to another property that you own, that is about something expensive.
So your job is basically just sorting this traffic into the right spots. Just like the story with my grandpa. Not everyone bought chips and coke. Some people were just there for gas and the cool thing is, he made money on that. But in the process, he offered other things that he thought they would want. So our job as the owner of this little tiny portion of the information superhighway that is the internet, this little portion which is our website, is to direct people to what they need based on why they’re there.
So if we look at acid reflux, our job is to say, well what are the solutions for the acid reflux? Or I think take some kind of prescription. They could maybe buy a home remedy book or whatever, or maybe they need better health insurance or whatnot. And our job is to direct them to where they need to be. So this is our website. Let’s say, someone is searching for how to stop drinking. We can say, hey here’s a way to do it yourself if you think you can do that and we have a site about how to do it yourself.
Then we say, okay well another way is to go to a rehab. If you need help with rehab now, we have a website about rehab triggering the expensive ads about rehab and of course having affiliate offers. Another thing we could say, “Hey! Get some health insurance. It allows you to go to rehab or whatever it is. And we’re branching them out to all these things that they want, which are sites that we own, which are based on the anticipation of what they are going to need.
So our job first and foremost, is to direct the traffic where they need to be and get paid in the process. And I want you to think about all those times that you got distracted online and you clicked on different things that were related somehow to what you originally wanted. That’s the same thing we’re doing is getting people interested, providing options, and making money in the process.
Now the art of direct linking is very very very simple to do, but there is an art form to it. So in much the same way that you see on my five-figure niches site, how I have my video, which is our content and then we have these little boxes over here that are showing us different options, here’s what the search history reveals. Here’s the webinar. Different things like this that are leading to sites that I own.
Very important because this is where you are going to put the stuff that they want, like the food. Let’s see like the food, the gas, the new car and the car repair. That’s where you are going to put all this stuff, and you’re going to divert their attention and say, hey you know what, if you’re interested in this, go over here to one of my sites that describes the best way to do it, much in the same way if you’re to say, “Hey, here’s a site about how to make a blog.”
Okay number one, get your domain. You would have a little box over there that says here’s how to choose a domain name. Then you take them to a site that’s something like howtochooseadomainname.com. Then you have another box that says, “Oh we already have a domain name. Here’s how to get hosting.” You have, how to get hosting.com and you’re leading them to things that they want already from your little portion of the highway. The part you own, which is your site to other places that you own, which are taking them to the expensive markets.
This is the art of internal linking.
We’re going to talk about this and show you a real world example in the next video and throughout the five figure niches training course. So if you haven’t joined yet, go ahead and click the link below. Get started guys! We’re going to go through everything.

Hey guys! It’s Marcus here.
You know while I was away at rehab, for the month that I was gone, in addition to starting back my old habit, I learned a few things and I got to thinking about you and how I could best serve you without having to deal with the struggles of creating new programs, and doing new things, and having things all over the internet where you have to go find them.
My goal was to give you the information that you needed and the tools that you needed so that you could profit online and actually get support from me, my team, and your fellow students. Because what I learned is that we’re all going through this together. We all have similar goal. We all have similar ideas and we can all help each other out.
So what I’ve decided to do is put together this internet marketing forum. Now unlike other internet marketing forums where they’re polluted with a bunch of junk, fake offers, and a bunch of garbage, this one is all based on one thing. And that is based around the way that I teach affiliate marketing, CPA marketing, and internet marketing as a whole.
So this forum, unlike the others, is going to be powered by the videos and tools that I put out for you. So if you’re one of my simple site students, you’re going to have a special area in the forum to talk to other simple sites students. If you’re a blog profit member, you’re going to have a spot in the forum to talk to other blog profit members, and each group is going to get their own special set of tools, videos and everything that they need.
Now there’s a couple things that are going to change with this forum. You see because I want to get away from being the guru that everyone goes to for answers and relies upon for every little thing. I want to be more of a friend. I want to be like that friend who hangs out at parties and you ask him questions about internet marketing. And you get the answers that you need in a really cool way where it’s not like someone’s selling you the solution for something because we’re all in this together as I stated before, and we’re all here to help each other.
So what I’ve decided to do, is make three groups to the forum.
One is the blog profit network members area, will have a link below where you can sign up and you can get involved in that.
You also get the blog profit network software and tools and everything that is our basic tier.
Beginning internet marketers our next tier, is the simple sites big profits forum.
If you are an owner of simple sites and you are a continued coaching member, this is for you. If you want to reactivate or if you want to start with simple sites, you get the software, you get the tools, you get everything. You can do that below as well.
Then we have our special founding members area. This is for elite marketers who want to share their experience, learn more, ask questions of me, get their simple sites reviewed, get their blogs reviewed, everything like that.
And my goal is to make this perfect for you.
So what I decided to do is allow some of my members who have had success in the past to be part of this and be able to moderate it. Now what I’d like to do to make this worthwhile for you as a founding member, is I’d like to allow you the ability to be able to pay your way into the founding member program virtually free.
Now the price is going to be $297.00 a month. A lot of you guys might be thinking, hey that’s a great deal but I really don’t have that or that’s a big commitment. Now if you’re in that group of people, what I’ve decided to do is make this virtually free for you by allowing you to post special offers in our forum. These offers are going to go out to all my other students and everything like that. You can post a site with tips and tricks and things like that. You can post maybe an affiliate offer that you found that works well and you could use your affiliate link and make money.
This is unlike the other forms that charge like fifty dollars or four dollars or whatever it is for one single post. This is allowing you access all month.
I know being a student of mine, you’re not going to abuse this and post one every second of every day or every day for that matter. You are going to reserve this for special things that you see needed. The goal is that you learn marketing as well as provide valuable services, valuable tips, and tricks to other marketers as well. And this is going to help you pay your way through the program. This is the absolute best value and this is something that you’re going to want to stay in forever, because not only are you going to get simple sites, not only are you going to get private coaching for them and skype access, not only are you going to get access to your other students, other members and my successful students, as well as myself, but you’re also going to get the ability to advertise on the forum.
Now all advertising must be approved by me and later on as the forum grows, you are going to be grandfathered in at just $297 a month. That means as we go on and we charge a thousand dollars for one post, you’re still going to be paying $297 a month for as many as you want to post.
As you can see, just one little post with an affiliate link can make you even more money than it costs to be in this. So this is an investment rather than another coaching program or junk because what I want you to do is, I want you to get used to making offers to people. I want you to get used to using this forum as a way to help people.
So guys what I’d like you to do is choose below based on where you’re at.
If you’re a beginner, start at the blog profit area.
If you’re intermediate, start at simple sites.
And if you’re ready to go, ready to start making money today, go ahead and be a founding member.
Guys there is nothing like this anywhere in the marketplace, and we’re only accepting a few people. So I want you to get in. Now once you’re in, you are grandfathered in and I’m going to have a special video on how to make your investment back using just the forum. So what I’d like you to do, is go ahead and choose your access point below. I am going to help you make money online. Really cool way because what I learned while I was away is that we’re all in this together and we’re all here to help each other out in the best way that I know. To help you is to provide you a place where you can go and get the help you need as well as practice your marketing strategies.
So what I did is a little test yesterday as the forum is brand new and I did a test with one of my sites. I just put a little link in this forum that we’re talking about. Anything made like 12 bucks right now that might not be a lot to some of you, but it’s enough to pay your membership and it was just a test when the forum was brand new. So I want you to really see the power of this because this is your ticket to making money online. Go ahead, choose your access point below I really hope you take me up on the offer of becoming a founding member because I’m going to show you how to make your money back fast in a really cool way.
Thanks again for listening! I hope you find this forum to be exactly what you’re looking for, to where you get rid of info overload and you have access to all the tools and tips that you need. Again, this is where all my coaching is heading towards. So you definitely want to take me up on whichever offer below fits your needs best.
I hope it’s the founder one and I hope I get to help you make money today. So go ahead, use the forum, use the links below to be part of the private forums, and let’s make money online together, in a way that’s never been done before, hand in hand, where you can start today. Make your first dollar online today and grow from there.
Guys this is the best learning opportunity because we are creating a collective consciousness of internet marketers with the same struggles. And people who have been where you are before and aren’t trying to tout some guru junk or sell some stupid thing that no one really needs. We’re all here to help each other and they’re pointing to things that we really need. So if you have a cool tip or something like that based on one of the programs that helps people, get in as a founding member and start making money right now!
Guys I thank you for watching. I thank you for continuing to be a part of this forum and let’s make money today. Go ahead and sign up below using the link that best fits you. Obviously the founding forum is the best way to go and I’ll see you on the inside.

Hey guys, Marcus here from affiliatemarketingdude.com.
Today, we’re going to learn on how to make a thumbnail that’s going to reel in views and clicks for your videos, blogs, and Instagram posts!
Advertisements are very important in being profitable!
If you want people to notce your banners, thumbnails, ads, and posts , you need to start knowing what catches the eye of your market and what makes it stand out from the rest!
So how do you make it stand out from everything else on social media or on any site?
No worries! I’ll walk you through some really important steps!
When it comes to creating good thumbnails, there’s two major softwares that I use that’s very simple and inexpensive to use:
- Creator – you can get this program, you can get this program at affiliatedude.com/creator
- Snaggit– this is a snipping tool that you can get for 50$ that comes with a landing page course.
My advice for you is that having one of these programs is well and good, but having both will make your life a whole lot easier!
This is what the UI (user interface) of Snagit looks like! It’s actually very simple to use and self-explanatory. You won’t have any problem navigating since it’s got the same model as MS paint and Photoshop.
So what we’re going to do now is that we’re going to make a thumbnail for one of our videos
It’s super simple!
- First, you have to know what the theme of your thumbnail is. So if you’re making a thumbnail for a video on youtube or for a post on Instagram, you need to do your research on what fits!
- Once you now have a plan on your thumbnail and what theme you want it to be, you can choose from a list of pre-created thumbnails from Creatorandx choose which thumbnail fits your niche well!
You don’t have to worry about sizing since it’s perfectly sized for you!
- What we’re going to be using is one of the Instagram templates since we’re making an Instagram post. So we will be using snagitto edit the image to our own liking!
- We’ll be deleting some of the unnecessary parts of the image and we’ll be placing a screenshot of one of our videos on it.
- One of the key ways to make your thumbnail stand out is by using large yellow texts since it has been proven for years in advertising!
- You can use a black or a white background – this depends on how it contrasts to the colors that are on the image.
This is the final product. It should actually be very simple since the product is very self-explanatory. Deleting and moving images or textboxes around is as simple as dragging and dropping in the same way that you do in MS paint.
If you’re also looking for a thumbnail that works well with Youtube videos, Creator has those pre-created templates that has the perfect resolution for your Youtube videos!
NOTE – Having a good title that will make your customers more curious (like “#3 is my biggest earner)
A Youtube Video thumbnail should look like this:
And there you have it! Use these tools and your own thumbnails, posts, and even ad banners in just a few minutes!
If you want more thumbnails and images

We have lots of sample banners that you can work on!
Got a lot of cool videos and everything else for you!
Check it out and I’ll see you on the inside
Hey guys it’s Marcus here and today what I’d like to do, since over the past few years all we’ve talked about is how other people search the web and how to monetize it – what I’d like to do is – I’d like to take a few steps back and ask YOU if you really know how to search the web to find the things that you want because chances are no one really sat down and told you – you just kind of fiddled around with Google.
So what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna teach you several different ways to search the internet for content for your site for calculators, for different research topics, and all kinds of different things that will help you get the information you need so that you can help others as well and make profit in the process.
- Now what we want to do first and foremost is decide why we want to search the web and what we’re looking for are we looking for a research topic. Video and audio or what is it we’re looking for recently what I do is I take little walks and listen to audios that I record from the internet or listen to from the internet or whatever you want to call it and what I’ll do is I’ll type something like the person’s name and mp3 searching for an mp3 file. So if I was to do something like let’s say we used a pastor’s name like Joel Osteen mp3or something like that okay you’re going to find that what’s going to happen is it’s going to show you all the different podcasts and things like that where you can listen to these people’s stuff.
Or you can even do something like King James Version Bible mp3 right and you can find different things like that another thing you can do is King James Bible PDF if you want to find a document or a PDF or something like that right and here we have the full PDF version of the of the Bible we have all kinds of different things so when searching the web you want to use lots of different things to actually find what you’re looking for and also find things for your visitors as well.
- One of the pages that I use is the Google search features page. I’m going to put a link to this below the video with different examples and things like that so that you guys can use it. Now, what this shows us is that there’s different ways to search the web so like I’ll search ‘Weather San Francisco’ – and voila! Now we have the weather in San Francisco!
- Not what’s the big secret here? Well what we want to show you is that the way that Google works is all based on search query okay that basically means that you have this big long string of info now when you look at this long string of info which looks really confusing to a lot of people you’ll notice several different thing:
- One, you’ll see Q = weather + San + Francisco + CA which basically is this here.
- So if I was to change this to let’s say Los Angeles what’s gonna happen is we’ll have the weather for Los Angeles all by just changing this.
- You can also change the query if you want to search for Chinese food – simply replace the same keywords with ‘Chinese food’ and Chinese food will pop up from California.
Now what does this mean for you? how does this help? ”Marcus you’re kind of confusing me.” Right? Well that’s okay we’re gonna get into the nitty-gritty here:
- First and foremost, what I want you to realize is you can find information on any topic – very very good informationby using the string PDF so if I was to go in and say let’s say critical thinking PDF and we hit Search look at all these PDFs that I could read about critical thinking right so I can read some of this stuff and find out exactly what’s going on summarize it link to it or use it in my site to actually give information.
- Let’s say that we have a site about hospital medical scam. We have this site and we say “Man, we haven’t written content on this site. I’d like to find some content for this site.” We can go in and search something like ‘how to read hospital bill PDF’, and what we’re going to find so we have like understanding your hospital bill why medical bills are killing us how to read your hospital no to negotiating right so we have all this information here and we could go in and read all of these PDFs and kind of gather information about how to read the hospital bill.
- Now another thing we can do is we can send this to outsourcers or we could simply put links on our site let’s say we have a site about perhaps romantic ideas right we could do something like romantic ideas dot PDF. We have here’s a free bonus version of romantic ideas we have let’s see here 10 romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day romantic ideas for the month right in anything with the PDF in front of it is actually a PDF that we could use right here’s some red hot romance ideas and of course we don’t want to like plagiarize this stuff if you do want to share it with your visitors you could put it on your blog and say ‘Hey I found this really cool thing for you right just make sure you end them to your blog.’very simple.
- Or you could go through and gather information from all these sources and kind of summarize it on your own and use these as references right that’s basically how the internet works. If we’re going to look at scientific papers – let’s say “Emotion in psychology PDF”. What you can see down below this PDF is references. The internet works just like these references. One of the sources talks about Cognitive Neurosciences and uses this as the top of the search engine.
- Now another thing to do is to utilize some of the things that I’ve put on this page now obviously I’m making the video so it’s not right here but it will be right here right one of the things that I did is I actually made it easy for you and showed you or have have put here for you the different things that I use right here’s the PDF one you just put your content like if you put ten ways to play golf or whatever write it find content BAMit’s gonna search for it automatically using Google.
- Now another thing you can do is resell rights let’s say you want to find a book that you could sell or give away on your site right all you do is you go save your marriage resell rights now what we have is all these different things like ‘save your marriage’book nine dollars for the book and you get to sell it and keep everything right lots of good stuff for you to use
- Another thing that I use all the time is calculators right if I do calculators let’s say I have a site about ‘pay off mortgage’find calculators what’s gonna happen is it’s now going to show you the spreadsheets for the calculators right and you can edit these like this one here I can edit right in Microsoft Excel and you can edit these like this one here I can edit right in Microsoft Excel right all I got to do is save it edit it make it cool put it on my site. Really easy.
- Again, don’t plagiarize. Use this stuff to learn from and use it to kind of make your own way because as you make your own way you could lead to cool affiliate programs that are gonna help your visitor get the result that they want very very important which brings us to our next one which is affiliate programs a lot of people say Marcus I don’t know how to find affiliate programs for my market ok well let’s take a look let’s say we are in the tattoo market all we do is type in tattoo and it searches for us automatically using Google here’s a tattoo affiliate program here’s a Clickbank tattoo affiliate program.
I’m going to do is I’m going to go ahead and put the search features link below this video so you can see all those and use them to learn how to search and I’m also going to have these little boxes on the side of this video so that you can play around with them and learn how to make the search engine give you what you want!
What I’m gonna do in the next video is I’m going to show you how to utilize these in a
different way to where you can actually have people search and make money in the
process but for right now what I want you to do is I want you to spend some
time getting to know Google in a new way!
Hey guys! It’s Marcus here from affiliatemarketingdude.com where you can get all your tools and tricks about how to make money based on the way that I teach.
One of the questions that I’ve been asked a lot recently is, “Marcus, how do I make those videos where you make all those images that slide around and things like that.”
People also seem to like them quite a bit and they are extremely easy to make!
Today, we’re going to show you,
how to make them using the custom script that I had developed.
Now you’re gonna notice that you have your title here, your domain name here, and everything like that. Before we get in to all these, what we need to do is we need to download the file. There will be a download link on the form that I have on the link below this video.
Once it’s downloaded, you’re gonna notice a movingslides.zip folder. Extract this from the zipfile on to your desktop. Once extracted, we’ll see the files here. You’re gonna notice that we have a couple of preliminary clip arts here just so you could see how it works.
The way that it works is this. You have a Java code that’s being accessed by this htm file here. Never touch the folder but you can touch the other images and direct file.
Next, we’re gonna open the htm file in our Firefox. We have this file here that is identical to the file we just had. You can actually edit the file using notepad. There’s the video title here, and watch what happens if I were to edit this to “How to Find the Value of Your Home.” Then here we have these spaces. That creates the space between this video title here and your domain name.
We’re gonna edit this “YOUR DOMAIN NAME” part. Let’s type, “Valuemyhouse.org” Notice that the images I’ve put in the file for you which is running on your computer, this whole thing runs on your computer, there’s no need to upload for anything except for the video you make.
First and foremost, we have “How to Value Your Home.” Watch what happens when we save it. Because it’s saving over top of the other file, we can now reload the page and we will see our changes.
How to value my home? Valuemyhouse.org. Very simple, right?
Now you need some images that have to do with your topic. It’s very important to get the right images. So we’re gonna go over to clipart.com or your favorite image editor which I will put the links below.
Now we need to find images related to our topic. Type in “house”. Next, make sure that they are transparent and that they are GIFs. Let’s try “house sale”. Here is a little home value book. What we want is non-interlaced GIF. Download the image then save it to the same folder. Go to desktop, go to the movingvideos folder, then save it as house1.GIF. Do the same steps if you have to download other images. We basically load up all the files.
You’re gonna notice in your folder, if we were to go here, we’re going to go to direct then open it to our text editor.
In our text editor, in the quotes <img src=1.gif alt=””/>, we’re gonna insert “house1”. So it becomes <img src=house1.gif alt=””/>. If you need more, just copy paste it. Once you’re done, you could save it as houses.htm then choose “all files”. We should have a file called houses.htm. When we open this file, we are going to see our changes.
What you’re gonna notice is that the images are big. So we want to shrink them.
To shrink them, we go back to our folder where the images are. Edit the picture, resize it to 30%, then save. By editing that image, you’ve also automatically edited the size of that image in the video.
This can be time-consuming so I downloaded a program called Fotosizer.
It’s free and I’ll put the link below. Now I can take all the files and put it all in Fotosizer. In Fotosizer, put 30% width, 30% height then click start. Now all the sizes of the images are changed and we can get ready for our video.
I just put all the images that I’m gonna use below the link. That way, I can just go through one portion of my site and record one area so they don’t see all the slides at once. Then I can just drag each picture correspondingly within the visible slide.
It’s very easy to use. They can see your domain name all the time and you basically just explain things in a really easy way and record it. As you’ve seen on my YouTube channel, I use this all the time to explain different topics and show people how things fit together. Now the cool thing about using this is that it is internet-based.
I’m gonna put the script on my forum and charge a little bit to offset the cost and you guys can use it over and over again as many times as you want.
Hop on to affiliatedudemarketing.com, use the link in this video if you’re not watching this on the forum and I will have all the tools there for you.

Could your blog theme be costing you money each and every day?
After getting hundreds and millions of visitors to my websites and blogs, I’ve found out that most people’s themes are actually causing them to lose money!
YOU SEE THEM ALL THE TIME.
THE BIG IMAGE THEME. The one that has that giant image up top and then you have to scroll down to get to the rest of the content. This does not work because as a marketer, you’re gonna notice that your most valuable real estate is above the fold. This big image takes up all the screen space at the top that leaves no room left for you to make money, unless they scroll down which very few people do. This adds to your bounce rate and stops your ability to make profit.
THREE-COLUMN THEME. This where you have a blog that set up where the content goes down the middle with columns on the sides. This is where people put some ads on the right column, links on the left column and ads on the bottom part. This makes it very difficult for your visitor to read and locate something very easily. As a marketer, you want to locate something at the drop of the hat so they can click it and get you paid. This three-column theme is out. That does not work.
THE FUTURISTIC BLOG THEME. This is a theme where people go through and they have all the kinds of fancy buttons and things that pop up and scroll and images slide in from anywhere. This doesn’t work either because it takes the user a lot of work to get to the things that they really need.
What I found that works good is a simple theme that looks like this.
It works on mobile and it works on computers as well. This can either be a one or two-column layout. A one column layout looks like this with all the text everything in the middle and a header image at the top. A two-column layout is a column down the right side. I like to keep the column kind of hidden so it looks like part of the theme so we don’t usually have an actual border. So we put the video content and then the text content. This makes it easy for people to read.
Remember, most of the people are going to read right to left. That’s why the other don’t work because it’s all jumbled up, makes them scroll down to find what they’re looking for, and the other is way too complicated.
We want to keep everything really nice and easy. Image on the top, content on the left hand side, sidebar on the right. You can have in your sidebar like a little opt in box, some ads, other links and stuff as well.
This has been proven as the most money possible per visitor.
If you are interested in making the most money possible per visitor, I’m gonna show you how to customize this theme for your site in less than 3 minutes!
Let me show you how easy this is to do.
- Go to SimpleBlogTheme.com
- Put your name and email address in the box.This is gonna take you to the download of the theme.
- You can watch the instruction video here and simply download this theme by clicking and hitting save target ads.
- Download this to the desktop.
- Once it is downloaded, you can notice the downloaded blog theme in a zip file.
- Go ahead and right click then hit extract all. This is gonna prompt you to extract the blog theme. Once it is extracted, you’re gonna have a bunch of files. Just ignore all the others and click on the images folder.
- Now you are going to edit two things. First, the header image. Second, the background image. The first image is named header, while the second is named page.
- It is important that you overwrite these with your images.
- Next, I’m gonna use my editor program to make an image or logo. Make sure it is 1000 x 100.
- Once you have the image the way you like it, you’re gonna go file save as, save it in your desktop, to your simple blog theme images folder.
- Overwrite the header, replace it, you’re done!
- After that, locate a nice background image.
- You can get it from clipart.com. Download the one with the highest resolution. Save it and replace the page file.
- Then go back to the beginning. Highlight everything.
- Click send to compressed folder and name this after your blog. For example, I would name it income for my “Income Inequality Statistics” website.
- Upon going to the website, you can notice that you still have to scroll down far to actually get the content.
- With this, we’re gonna go to manage themes on our blog. Click on upload theme then browse the theme we just created in the folder. Install the theme then activate it.
Now you can see we have a beautiful two-column and one-column theme based on what I’ve been using for years to get results that make money.
Go ahead and try this out!

Hey guys it’s Marcus here from blog profit network.com and what you want to do is go to blog profit network.com put your name and email in the box that way you can be updated of my latest videos tricks tools templates and all the cool stuff that I give you to help you make money online with your blog and with anything else. So go on over there put your name and email in the box and for right now let’s go ahead and dive into the video.
So what we’re gonna do in this video is I’m going to show you how to make a high converting banner ad using only Microsoft Word and a program called Snagit.
Now, you can also use Google or the Microsoft snipping tool but I like to use Snagit because it allows me to edit things a little bit better. We’re going to use Microsoft Word and we are going to use the Snagit program which allows us to capture screenshots and everything like that.
- First and foremost, we are going to determine what our goal of the banner is.Now, the way that we want to determine the goal is by looking at the site. We are either going to run the banner on or our own site and understand the customer.
So if we’re on a site – let’s say for losing weight, maybe it’s like a weight loss forum or something like that. what we want to do is we want to notice the colors, the layout and different things to kind of make our banner fit in with the content and to get the attention of the people.
- We don’t want our banner to look like a banner.we want it to look like part of the content and I’ve actually used this method and gotten such good results. that one banner network actually took my ad off because we are getting so much traffic. the advertiser, the publisher was getting irritated that we were taking all this traffic.
- So what we’re gonna do is we’re going to talk about how to really start with these things so let’s say we are going to target the weight loss market and instead of doing something like “Hey, click here to lose weight or weight loss” we’re going to say something like “Show me how to lose…”.
- Then what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go to our Snagit. Grab this little box and we’re gonna copy ten pounds in and then we can do something like “in ten days”or whatever or we could do “ten pounds in seven days”.
What this is gonna do is it’s going to have them click on this. they’re gonna be interested and they’re gonna say “Oh, wow! you know I want to lose- you know 20 pounds in seven days or whatever it is.”
- Now the way that you make a banner is – you basically just get your sizing correct
– Now what we want to do is we always want to make our links blue and underlined because that’s what people are used to.
so we’re going to go ahead and use this right like this – get the blue here. There we go, so something like this:
“click here for your free weight loss report”.
Now in order to make this a banner, it’s super, super simple. All you do is you hit printscreen because if you have Snagit installed and running, all you got to do is hit printscreen and what’s going to happen is it’s going to give you a sizing chart. It shows 1073 x 642 – all we want to do is make this as close to our banner as possible.
- Then we just kind of shape it up,we can just kind of shape it up the way that we want it by editing it and everything like that.
Very very simple!
Then of course all we do is save it and we have a banner ad!
You could do this with tons of different things. Let’s say we wanted to make a tall banner for like WordPress or something like that or maybe it’s a skyscraper banner… We could do something like…
Let’s say we do 50 pounds over weight
click here to learn
click here to start shedding
shedding pounds fast
and then you could do something like…
let’s say 100 pounds overweight
Super Simple! You can upload this to your banner network or upload this to your blog.
If you have images…
let’s say you wanted to put an image in there, right all you would do is just go to where your images are. All you would do is just make this the size you want. Put your text next to it let’s say “Getting too much junk mail…l check out this free filter”
Alright! and then you just basically put a link there.
Notice how these look like part of the website content.
I’ll show you how this works in a really cool way.
We’re basically just gonna print screen.
Get our sizing right. Obviously, match it with whatever banner size you’re using and you can go and find out wherever that is on your site or if you’re going to like buy sell ads or something like that, you could go in there and find out what the sizes are.
you’re just making your banner to fit and as I showed you earlier, whether it’s your site or someone else’s site, what you want to do is:
YOU WANT TO MAKE IT LOOK GOOD FOR THEM.
What I would do take a look at what people are interested in on a site and find out where the banner is gonna be. we could look for the banner.
What we would want to do is we want to make it as close as possible to the actual look of the site.
We could basically go in and say “Okay. Well, we want it gray because the background is gray.”
you can make it fit a color as close as possible.
See how that looks like part of the content rather than an banner that’s screaming “Hey don’t click because I’m an ad!”? This is how you make a banner in Microsoft word!
Now what I want you to do is:
I want you to go to the link in the box of this video. On YouTube, you’re gonna see a link – it’s gonna look a lot like this BlogProfitNetwork.com/banner.
We’re gonna give you some templates, tricks, and tools.
You could start making your own banner ads
whether you’re gonna run them on other sites or whether you’re gonna run them on your site
if you want that toolkit,
go to blogprofitnetwork.com/yourbanner
put your name and email in the box.
I’m gonna give you that kit for free and with the hopes that you’re gonna get stuff down the road because I know you love my training and you want to make a lot of money.
go ahead and go to blogprofitnetwork.com/banner
we’ve got some other videos for you
some tools and a download pack of templates
Alright, see you in the next video thanks again and let’s make money!
Hey guys! It’s Marcus here.
Today, what we’re gonna do is talk about how to make automated autopilot affiliate commissions.
That’s right! We’re gonna tell you how to make money, the best kind of money there is. The money you make when you’re sleeping, when you’re out on vacation and when you’re not even working. And we’re gonna break it down for you step-by-step in a very easy way, so that you can start right now!
So first of all, let’s go ahead and get into how to automate income.
How do you automate your income so that it just comes automatically and it builds and builds and grows and grows?
Let’s take a look at some of the things we can and cannot automate.
First of all, what can’t we automate? Well we can’t really automate website creation. We can’t really automate the research. We really can’t automate building affiliate links and things like that. So those things, we have to do one time. We got to set them up. We got to make them work.
Now let’s talk about what we can automate.
Some of the things we can automate are the very most important things you see once you set up a website one time. Let’s say we set up our website. We put some content on it. We put some affiliate links on it. Then in order to automate it, all we have to do is have systems in place that generate traffic over and over and over and over and over again. It’s because here’s the deal. You’re gonna get paid in proportion to the quality and quantity of the traffic that you provide to the offers. Plain and simple.
I’ll say it again, you’re gonna get paid in proportion to the quantity and quality of the traffic that you provide.
Now if we can get this traffic over and over on autopilot, that is the name of the game that’s what works. So well you can’t automate website building. You can automate content creation. You can automate some of the things that will get you traffic which is very important.
Now when I talk about traffic, we’re going to talk about two different types of traffic.
ONE TYPE IS NEW TRAFFIC AND OTHER TYPE IS RECYCLED TRAFFIC.
Recycle traffic. Now we got a look at this because again the idea is get more people to your offers, make more money. Now if you get people hours a day, like right now there’s tons of people hanging out on my website. There’s people buying stuff. The only way that happens is because I get people coming to my site each and every day. Now some of the things that you can do to automate traffic in terms of new and recycled traffic.
Let’s talk about new. How can you get new people to your site?
Well you could set up a pay-per-click ad this is where you go to Google, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, wherever you buy an ad. And it generates traffic. I do this with banner ads. I buy a banner ad. One time, I pay the bill for the banner ad every single month and it generates me money automatically on autopilot.
You can do the same thing with paid traffic. The more you set up that are targeted again quality of traffic, the better your gonna do. And the automated income is going to come in.
Now another way that you can automate your traffic is by creating new posts or content.
One thing I like to do is create new content. If I create new content for my market, it’s gonna get out there. It’s gonna go on the search engines. It’s gonna get me traffic and boom I’m gonna start getting automated income. If I have let’s say 30 different pieces of content out there, every day generating ten visitors a day each, that’s 300 visitors a day. The law of sales averages says, I should get a sale every 100 clicks. That would be three sales per day or more. You just go. You set it up. It’s automated.
Another way we can go out there and get automated income is to create new sales funnels. Create some new thing that you could give away to your audience to build a mailing list. Very important because once we build a mailing list, this is gold. Here’s the deal. I’ll show you how it works.

Over Talk Sober, I’ve been messing around with it for a while building a YouTube channel. I got a lot of people interested. Got some people by. I got a lot of people that are staying sober which is cool. That’s like the goal right now. I have those people and I tell them, “Hey check it out! If you go to my website.” I will give you a list of letters that I wrote and I have them over here somewhere. They’re around here somewhere and it’s a list of letters that I wrote to an alcoholic. That basically guides them through stuff. They’re like seven pages each. Took me like an hour each to write. Not that big of a deal. Once I have these written, I have these letters and I could tell people to go to my website, put their name and email in the box and I will send them these letters each and every day.
Right now, what does that do? What that does is it now automates the ability to recycle traffic.
So now they come in. They fill out the form and each and every day for 31 days they are getting an email with a letter to help them stay sober.
Now if I do a good job in the letter or you do a good job in your content or whatever and you don’t have to be 31, have you can have seven or three or 500 or however many you want right now, we take these people. And each time I send them the letter, I don’t just send them the letter on email and say thank you goodbye. I say, check it out! Today’s letter is about how to stay sober in tough times. Today’s letter is about this. Today’s letter is about that. Go to my website to download the PDF version of the letter.
What does that do?
What that does is it takes these people that came in and filled out the form and it gets them to go back to my website every single day for 31 days.
Now in this process, the people who read every single day and get help by these letters want to buy things. It’s all like these videos. “Marcus why do you make so many videos about how to make money online?” Well I make them because it spreads goodwill and the more you watch them, the more you want to buy things from me. You look at it and you’re like, man this guy knows what he’s talking about. I want to buy some stuff and you go over to my site and you buy stuff.
Same kind of thing happens. Here we give these letters. We give genuine good help for these people so whatever you’re marketing, whether it’s you know how to lose weight, here’s tip number one, here’s tip number two, you send it out and it generates automated visitors to your site.
You literally set this up once and I just started doing this yesterday on my sober side. I set up seven in about 45 minutes wasn’t that hard to do. It’s really easy and now I got seven days to set up the rest of them but I set up those seven and now these people are gonna go back to my website day-in day-out. They’re gonna be looking at this stuff. They’re gonna be watching this stuff. Every time they hit my website is another time for them to see my ads. Every time they hit my website there’s another time to see affiliate offers. Every time they hit my website there’s another time for them to buy things. The name of the game is to get people to come back to your site because here’s the deal, we all know that not everyone buys the first time they see you.
How many of you guys have watched my videos and you haven’t bought in anything yet?
You’re like well you know Marcus has good info. I just haven’t bought anything yet. Now if I took that and said, well those people are just out of here. Forget it. I’m focusing on the buyers. I would lose a lot of money because I know even though you haven’t bought yet you’re going to in the future because you like this stuff and you want to make money with it.
Same kind of thing happens with your website. The more and more they come back to your site, the more helpful info you give them, the more you bond with them, the more likely they are to check out your affiliate offers to click on things to buy stuff.
I got to tell you, it’s really, really easy to set up. Once you set this up, once you could literally populate an entire year worth of content in your autoresponder to send people back to your stuff. Very simple and you just got to look at it in a really really basic way.
Let’s say you’re in the market to sell Bibles or you want to market the Bible toolbar. That’s a big one. I’ve marketed, made money with that one, and we get paid three dollars or something like that, when people download the Bible toolbar.
Now people are gonna come to our site and you might get if you do really, really good. You might get 10% of your visitors to download the Bible toolbar. That’s good! If I get a hundred people to my site and ten of them download the toolbar, that’s thirty dollars in revenue for me. Yay great wonderful.
Now tomorrow I got to get another hundred people to make another thirty bucks. If I want to get more people, I got to do that too. Right? So we look at it and we’re like, yay I got a hundred people. I made $30 wonderful. What about the other 70 people? What if I could get people to put their name and email in a box name, email in a box and they say, yes Marcus. I want Bible verses delivered to me daily. I sit there. I pick out some good Bible verses or I google the top 365 Bible verses. I put them into my autoresponder and every day they’re gonna get a Bible verse and they’ll go wow that made me feel great. And as you say go to my site to see the whole Bible verse or download a picture or something like that, you get them to your site.
Then once they go to your site, you say download the Bible toolbar. Now the same hundred people is going to produce a lot more because you’re gonna get them back to your site, back to your site, back to your site. Those that don’t want the Bible toolbar, you can offer them something else. Those that don’t want the something else, offer them something else.
And we look at it and it automates it in a really cool way. So my favorite way, my favorite two ways to automate your income is to,
- Build content that gets traffic every day.
- Build a mailing list and populate your autoresponder with the messages that are going to hit them and bring them back to your site.
It’s very important that you get them back on your site.
If you get them back on your site, that’s where the magic happens.
It’s kind of like in the olden days when you used to read a magazine ad and you’d reply to the magazine ad and they’d send you like seven letters in the mail over the course of a couple weeks. Then we did this with a magic magazine that I responded to an ad and he sent me letters every single day. Only that was expensive that took work. You had to get the letters out there. This is automated. You set it up and you forget about it and you just run traffic to it and boom you make money over and over and over again. You’re building a huge mailing list and when you have this big mailing list, this can make you money for years to come.
I’m still making money off of mailing lists I built back in 2006 when I first started building lists. Very cool very easy. Very automated. Go do it. Make some money. Subscribe.

Hey guys, Marcus here from affiliatemarketingdude.com.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to give you tips on how to make a good amount of money on your Facebook, Shopify, your Affiliate marketing networks and just about any e-commerce site. We’ll be showing you on how to get traffic fast!
Super fast and easy!
Basically, our ultimate goal for this lesson is that we want to get traffic for our products and our pages for your different social media platforms.
So here are some tips on how to get good traffic:
- Facebook is actually a good social media platform to use if you want to advertise products as an affiliate.
- A lot of Facebook videos that showcase products can easily make thousands to millions of views and it only takes a few minutes to seconds to record these videos. Not to mention you’ll get paid as an affiliate when you direct traffic to the product’s page!
So what does that this have to do with you?
- If you go to Amazon, Shopify and other e-commerce websites and you search for a specific product, you’re going to get pages of the same product or brand. You’re going to notice that the vast majority of them are duplicated.They might be different brands but the functions are the same.
Amazon doesn’t really pay that much when it comes to affiliate commissions. You’re going to make an average of $1 – $2. If you were someone who was making millions of views – you’re probably going to be earning a lot. But hitting millions of views is easier said than done.
- So what can we do? We can use different tactics and strategies so that you don’t need millions of views as long as you’re doing it the right way!
What are the strategies?
- You can outsource or dropshipthe product directly from a dropshipping company. Then you can sell it again on an E-commerce site like shopify or your own site!
- Link to Amazon and see if it sells. Great!
This only takes a few minutes to set up!
NOTE – You can find the same product from different e-commerce websites that are actually quite cheaper than the ones from Amazon and other online stores. You can dropship them and pocket the rest!
THE KEY TO ALL OF THESE IS TRAFFIC
- You have to familiarize with all the keywords that people are searching. This information and data can definitely give you an edge over your different competitors.
- Let’s say that you’re getting 14 million views in a single video and the keyword is listed as having a price of $0.30. $0.30 x $14,000,000 results in $4,200,000!
KEEP THAT IN MIND!
If you do this right, it’s going to work.
- Just imagine this; you’re making a video that only takes a few minutes to seconds and you’re going to edit it to make it look good. This might take you to a few minutes to an hour at least. If you’re going to be making millions of views from this, you just made MILLIONS of dollars by shooting a video!
Do it as an affiliate first! See if you make money. If you do, then start dropshipping/importing the product!
Start small and easy. Gain momentum from there!
In reality, we wouldn’t really know if your video is going to get millions of views, thousands of views, or maybe just hundreds of views. But if you follow the plan and you structure on what’s working already, you WILL get better results!
Knowing is half the battle! You have to look at the metrics, you have to build, you have to grow.
