What it Really Takes to Earn $1,000 a Day

What it Really Takes to Earn $1,000 a Day as an Affiliate Marketer — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make $300 to $1,000 a day in profit with affiliate marketing? Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today.

Very few people ask me what an affiliate marketer does on a day-to-day basis that actually makes money. This is very important, because that’s what you need to be doing. You can’t just go out there and learn a bunch of stuff–you have to take action and make it work. So, we’re gong to look at daily tasks and divide them into two categories: getting new visitors and converting existing visitors. Some content is designed to do both, but most will fall into only one.

You can repurpose and duplicate your content to fit into both, and with that you can double your income.

Let’s take a look at some of the things that work on a daily basis. It could be:

  • Finding new traffic avenues
  • Testing something (like Google AdWords, MSN or Bing ads, Yahoo ads, Facebook ads)
  • Facebook post
  • Facebook group
  • Twitter campaign

 

People come to me and say, “Marcus, these are things that I’m already doing. Why am I not making three hundred to a thousand dollars a day? What’s going on?” Well, the secret here is that you need to be doing them deliberately. You can’t just go out there and post some raw ugly affiliate link on Facebook and expect people to buy things. That’s not how it works. You have to refine your market. If you have a bunch of people that are very, very hungry, and you have a hamburger stand, you don’t have to be a great salesman to sell a hamburger, because the people are hungry and you’re the only one who has food to eat.

So it’s very easy now online. You have segments and segments of markets, so if you go out there and just post something on Facebook or Craigslist and you just hope to get the right people, that’s not what you want to do. As a marketer, your number one job is to find the right audience. Find the right market. Who are you talking to?

If you’re going on Facebook, you want to go into a targeted group of people and talk to them, or create a targeted group and talk to them. If you’re going on pay-per-click ads, you have to bid on the right terms. Who’s looking up your stuff?

For example, on Craigslist, I recently found an ad for Uber. It said, “check this out, it pays x amount of money,” and it went to an affiliate link. I don’t know if Uber allows this (some affiliate networks do, some don’t), but it appears that Uber might allow it because there’s tons of them (unless they’re just getting away with it). But the moral of the story is that it’s a good match. You’re looking for people who want a job, and you post the Uber ad, and it pays you when someone signs up or something like that. And you’re just making money all day long. So that’s an example of a deliberate move. Same thing with Facebook. If you find a group of people that are into fishing or something like that, you want to get in there and provide some value, then link them to stuff that makes you money.

Providing value is another thing that we do as affiliate marketers.

When you look at this and know that offer for Uber pays 50 bucks for a new person to sign up on the form, you think about how to get all these people to that offer, whether it’s from Craigslist, pay-per-click, a Facebook group, or whatever it is. It’s got to be deliberate. It’s got to be within the terms and conditions of all the sites you’re using (which is pretty easy to stay within). Then let’s say you get one hundred people a day to view an ad, and three to five people sign up. Let’s say that four people sign up: Multiple that by fifty dollars, and that’s two hundred bucks right there from a couple of simple ads.

You have to be deliberate and delegate the tasks you do on a daily basis.

 

Let’s say that I find people who want to set up a blog and start blogging. I can create a report, a video, or some piece of content to teach them how to make a blog, and I get $100 to $300 per sign-up. All I have to do is put my effort into getting this right. Where are these people? Maybe there are bloggers on a Facebook group. Maybe there are people on YouTube. I could make YouTube videos for how to set up a blog video. Maybe I make a little PDF report for how to set up a blog.

Now, let’s say my daily traffic is 100 people watching my videos, because the videos are targeted. I tell people, “If you want these instructions, get my PDF at my site and get web hosting.” Out of that amount of people, let’s say that 3 people get hosting. I’m now making $100 to $300 in commissions. I’m going to be building a list, but I’ll be making money as I go along as well.

This is an example of how it works. When you’re building a list, this is where it really starts to compound and work really well. It’s not that hard to do. You have these videos that are getting new visitors, then you start to focus on existing visitors.

Now let’s take a look at the daily tasks I would do for existing visitors. This could be something like send email. Email is a really good one if you have something about blogs. You could go out and start a Facebook group in your market, and you could start to talk to people. Facebook groups are very big for that—you can interact with your audience. You could also do Twitter. You can find good content and give it to your videos. You could repurpose content. You could make all kinds of cool stuff and make lots of money doing that.

So you want to delegate the tasks, make them very deliberate, and focus on what pays. While you’re reading this, there are people on dating sites, on bidding sites, on Facebook, on Google, on sales websites—they’re everywhere. Your job is to do something every day that brings them to you brand new, or something that bonds with t them that you already know. You can go and convert your existing visitors with little daily tasks.

Money Making Mindset Hack

Money Making Mindset Hack For Making Money Online With Affiliate Marketing — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com

Today I’m going to teach you the number one thing that holds people back from making money online. It’s a secret that not a lot of people know about, and we’re going to help you understand it so that you can get past the hurdle and finally start making money with affiliate marketing. 

In life and in business, we have this idea that something big has to happen. If a guy makes a video on YouTube, it’s a big deal. If a guy makes a living on the internet, it’s a big deal. If a guy is on a reality TV show or he produces shows, it’s a big deal. If he has a book, it’s a big deal.  

I’ve been a slow starter for 2018. I’ve been trying to get content out, trying to do the live webinars, but I just really haven’t been on my game.  Just a few days ago, someone I do videos back and forth with on YoutTube (who’s got a bunch of subscribers) asked me to make a video for him for his channel. He wanted me to take a look at the book he wrote and give a review. It’s a big channel, it’s got a lot of subscribers, we’ve done this before, and it’s really cool for me.  

So here I was trying to get started. I thought, okay, it’s a big deal. I have to be in the mood to do it. I gotta sit down, I gotta think about what I’m gonna do or what I’m gonna write. I gotta make it perfect. 

I was making mountains out of molehills for this 90 second to 180 second video. I was looking at it like it was a big deal. A lot of people think, wow, he’s an author. He wrote a book, and that’s a big deal. But in actuality, it’s not. He went out, got content, took action, and made something happen.  

I met this guy online from a book review I did, where I read a book and shared my opinions and thoughts and takeaways from the book. He found me on the book review and I shared it. It wasn’t a big deal. It was me behind the camera, just talking as I do every day. We all talk every day, but for some reason with the cameras on, when we’re talking about money, it gets to be a big deal. 

Now, what does this have to do with you? In our lives we have a lot of blocks and filters, and they stop us from making money online. They make us think we’re not good enough. I still have them today. I’ve been doing this for 18 years– you think I would be pretty confident, and for the most part, I am. But there’s still that voice in the back of my head that says, hey, what if it’s not good enoughWhat if someone doesn’t like it? These blocks tell you that money is hard to get.  

We think about making $100,000 a year, and we think, how am I ever going to get that? That’s a big deal. But for me, by making $167,000 my second year online when I was 22 or 23 years old, I learned that it’s really not a big deal.   

We have these expectations that when we set something up, something else is supposed to happen. When you build a website, a bell is going to go off, people will celebrate and you’ll start making money, and it’s gonna be this big thing.  

But really, success doesn’t work like that. Success is a lot calmer. And there are thousands, if not millions, of affiliate marketers who make these numbers all the time.  

There are people who have blogs about food that make $100,000 a year. There are affiliate marketers that make $100,000 a year. There are people with little YouTube channels making $100,000 a year. But we have blocks and filters that make us think, what if I can’t do thatWhat if it’s not right? And that leads to inaction. 

There are a lot of questions I could have asked myself about doing book reviews online. Are they gonna be good? Do people mind? Do people like them? Will they get any views? Will they get this or that? 

But instead, I sat down and thought, okay, I’m gonna take action. I think people will value my opinion on this, so I’m gonna do it.  

These filters make you ask, does it really work? A lot of people ask me, does affiliate marketing really work? Does the stuff you teach really work? 

Well, yeah, it works. For me personally, it’s been working for a long time. For the people who have done this business inside and out, it’s been working even longer for the rest of them.  

Ask yourself, what if it does work? What if I could put a piece of content out there, whether it’s a video, audio, a report, a PDF, a blog post, or a list of something a lot of people look up? Whatever it is, what if I’m putting that content out there? Will people read it or see it?  

Well, yeah. You can put it online now, and you have to learn how to make people read it, of course. And then, if they can read it, ask yourself: will they take some kind of action that will make me  money?  

If you learn this stuff, you’ll realize it’s not that big of a deal at all. We’re taking people and helping them out with whatever it is they’re looking for, or we’re giving them some kind of entertainment or some kind of value. Value is in the eye of the beholder, so you can’t make it a big deal. Some people will look at content and think that it stinks. Some people will think it’s great. Your job is to find the right person who’s going to consume it and get the value out of it. It’s very simple.  

Of course, you have to do things the right way. You can’t just go spam Craigslist or put a bunch of junk on Facebook that people don’t want to read. You have to make good quality, decent stuff that people want to read. But again, it’s not that big of a deal. You don’t need a documentary-style video with a million-dollar production. You just need something that’s going to help. And the cool thing is that you have your little slice of the internet.  

The internet is a huge place with billions of dollars being spent. Amazon pays billions of dollars a year to affiliates. And that’s just one slice of one slice. We also have CPA networks, affiliate companies, Best Buy and all these other companies. All we have to do is find a way to make content that people will consume and lead them to things that make us money.  

So, you have to fight the inaction. I don’t mean you have to get the boxing gloves out. Just start doing something. You don’t have to start huge or extravagant. You just need to start somewhere.   

In my own life, I find that when I start somewhere, it starts a domino effect. I make one video, and the next one is easier, and the next one is easier, and on and on we go. And over time, I have a ton of content.  

Let’s say you set up a new video, and you get a hundred views, or even ten views. You might think that stinks and it doesn’t work. But instead think, where did those views come from? Why did people watch it? Did anyone respond? What did I do wrong? What can I do better?  

Or maybe your first video is a hit, and you get a hundred thousand views right away. So you keep doing the same thing.  

Doing this business is a 99% mental game. A lot of your studying as an affiliate marketer has probably involved a lot of thinking and worrying and blocks and filters, and very little action. Whatever you do, make it deliberate. Study who your audience is. Study who you want to reach and make a deliberate thing for them.  

People are searching for all kinds of things. You have to get past that mental game and just set something up. Because once you do, it’s gonna start a domino effect. You’ll get where you want to go. Getting to $100,000 a year online is not a big deal online. Getting to $1,000,000 online is not a big deal. Whether you want a dollar, or whether you want billions of dollars, you just have to start somewhere and follow it through. Stop looking at everything as a big deal and thinking that the world has to align for you. Just get started.

Too Much Shit Info Overload

There’s just too much shit. Am I going to put something on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook? Do I need to do a YouTube live? What do I need to do? Should I send my people to a capture page, a squeeze page, a lead page? Should I do an Amazon store, affiliate marketing? Should I do some kind of Shopify? What should I do?
Marcus
Hey guys, it’s Marcus here and today, I’m in kind of a slump. I started studying new ways of doing things. I started looking at hiring a social media manager and branching out on Facebook and Twitter and all these other things and I noticed that it’s really easy to get overwhelmed by this stuff and it’s really easy not to know where to go but in the back of my mind, I had this little voice that said, “You don’t have to do everything. You just need to do one thing really, really good.”
Marcus
That’s the key to affiliate marketing and making money online with the business is doing one thing and doing it really, really good. It might not even involve Twitter or Facebook or any of that stuff. It could just be search engine traffic to a site. It could just be a group. It could be anything and that’s part of what makes this stuff work is doing one thing and one thing good.
Marcus
You see, in our culture, it tends to lead us to be a jack-of-all-trades. We’re out there trying to conquer every different platform with every different software with every different everything and we never really hone in on one thing really, really good. Over the last 18 years when I look at my life and I look at everything I’ve done in business, everything leads to one thing done really, really well. All I have to do is find one niche, one group of people and connect with them, and connect with them in one way that works really, really good all the time.
Marcus
If you can do that, you will be a lot closer to success because I think what throws us off is just going from one thing to the next thing thinking that we have to do everything but we don’t. We only have to do one thing and do it really, really good. I’m Marcus from affiliatemarketingdude.com and I hope you enjoyed this little message.

Finding The Right Niche Market For Affiliate Programs

Hey, guys. It’s Marcus here from affiliatemarketingdude.com. Today, what we’re going to do is talk about the biggest question that people have when it comes to making money online as an affiliate marketer and that is what niche do I go into? How do I know what to do? Do I go for something I’m passionate about? Do I go for something that’s competitive? Do I just pick one out of thin air? How do I find the right niche? We’re going to answer that question and we’re starting right now.

Really cool. Want to make sure you subscribe.
Right now, we’re going to talk about how to choose the niche. How do you choose the right niche market. What I want to do is I want to break it down because a lot of people get confused about this. There’s a lot of people out there that say, “Oh, well. You should go for something you’re passionate about.” Or, “You should go for something that you know a lot about.” Or, “You should go for something that has a lot of money or a lot of competition or no competition.” The things get really, really convoluted and there’s a lot of information overload that’s going on when we’re talking about this stuff. We’re going to break it down once and for all. Now, I want to you to know that this video is a portion of a video I’m creating for my Profit 2018 course. If you like this stuff and you want to go deeper into it, I definitely urge you to check out profit2018.com.
What I want to do here is I want to talk about how this works because you have several camps of people. For example, a lot of you guys know that I just recently got a puppy. We got this little puppy. It’s a great puppy. It’s our third puppy and it’s a wonderful puppy. We have them before. But puppies can be pain in the butt and they can be expensive. Now, a lot of people would say, “Well, a lot of people spend a lot of money on puppies. A lot of people spend a lot of money on dogs. Maybe that’s a good niche to go to.” Maybe it is. But what we want to do is we want to act like marketers. If you’re a marketer, I am guessing that you’re here, you have no idea what you want to market. You have no idea what niche you want to go into. You have no idea where to go. A lot of people are like this. Maybe you like puppies. Maybe you like horses. Maybe you like houses, or mortgages, or whatever.
What we want to do as a marketer, first and foremost, is we want to have curiosity, curiosity as to what the market wants. We can like things. We can be passionate about things and we can care about things all we want but we’re going to end up like that guy on Shark Tank who’s like, “Hey, I built this product that looks really good and no one really wants it.” We got to really let the market dictate what we want and what we go into.
Let’s take a look at this and let’s break it down. My favorite place, and hopefully our cameraman finds us here, my favorite place to find niche markets is always using the Google Keyword Tool. For those of you that don’t know what the Google Tool is, the Google Keyword Tool is like the backdoor of Google. It’s going to go through and it’s going to share with us what people search for on Google, which is really important. This is really good. Because if people are actively searching for something, that means that they want it. That means there’s a market there. That means there’s a desire. The essence of marketing is creating desire. Desire. I desire to spell right. The essence of marketing is creating desire.
If you go out there and you try to pick what you want, or what you think the market wants, or what you think is good, or what you think is important, it doesn’t matter. As a marketer, it doesn’t matter what I think. I’ve been doing affiliate marketing, internet marketing for over 18 years now and still it doesn’t matter what I want. It doesn’t matter if I create the best video about what I think is important. What matters is what do you search for? What kind of things are you looking up?
That’s where the Google Keyword Tool comes in handy. You see, the Google Keyword Tool goes through and it says, “Hey, check it out.” On Google, there’s over four million searches every minute. Every minute, four million people are searching Google. They could be searching for restaurants. They could be searching for movie times. They could be searching for how do I know if I have diabetes, or athlete’s foot, or whatever it is. How do I know if I have these things? They could be searching for anything. They could be searching for ways to build a house. They could be searching for mortgage tips. They could be searching for anything.
Now, I want you to note the difference here. The difference between someone actively going and searching Google for a specific keyword and the difference between someone on Facebook, or Twitter, or whatever. Now, Facebook and Twitter and all that stuff is great to get business on. But until you understand this, nothing is going to work. You have to understand the mindset of the customer. This is what we call search or browser intent. Browser intent. What does this mean what is your intent? For example, you had an intent when you came to this video. You’re like, “Okay. I want to learn how to find a niche because I want to make money.” Your intent is, hey, I want to make money as an affiliate. Really cool. You might have heard of affiliate marketing. You might have heard of this stuff before. Your intent is, hey, I want to learn this stuff so that I can make money. There’s the desire. The desire, boom, is linked to I want to learn this stuff so I can make money. That’s the intent.
Now, I want you to notice that I got all that intent from a keyword and that keyword is probably something like “find a niche” or “best keyword for affiliates” or whatever it is. Very, very important. We got to know the intent behind the word. We got to know where it’s coming from. When we look at this, we got to just be curious. Again, because you might be saying, “Well, that’s all fine and good, Marcus, you already have a market. You know you want to get affiliate marketing people and you know what they want. What about me? The guy who just stumbles on a video and says, ‘I want to make money. I really don’t care how as long as it’s ethical and legal and fun.’ That’s what I want to do.” Well, what we do is what I’ve done for over 18 years.
You see, a lot of people don’t know the backside of my affiliate marketing business. On the backside of my affiliate marketing business, we are always looking for new niche markets. We’re always looking for new crowds of people who want something but they don’t know what they ultimately want yet. For example, I could go into the market and I could go into my Google Keyword Tool and I could go in there and I could type something in like “diet.” Pretty cool. Okay. Let’s find out what people want to search for with diet. Now, you’re going to find things like diet, 10 pounds in 10 days diet, military diet, apple juice diet, grapefruit diet, whatever diet. You’re going to find all these different diets people want.
Now, what you’re going to notice is that with these diets, you’re going to have a lot of competition. The competition is always higher when the keyword is obvious. Very important. I want you to write that down. The competition is always higher when the keyword is obvious. This is where most people start marketing. They try to find something like diet, or mortgage, or weight loss, or puppy training, or whatever it is. They’re going to for a market like that.
Now, what I like to do is I like to go off the beaten path. I want to be curious just like I have over the last 18 years and I want to say, “What is it that people are searching for?” Because as a marketer, I really don’t care as long as there’s a way to make profit on it. Just like the producers of TV shows. They don’t care if the TV show is funny to them or if they like it. That’s irrelevant. What matters is will the general public like it? That’s all that matters. Let’s talk about this general public.
Now, what I like to do instead of going to the Google AdWords tool and searching for something like diet, or make money, or something like whatever, anything. I don’t know why this thing is filming way down here but maybe it’s getting stuff. That helps. We got that there. We’re like, “Diet and make money.” This is what most people do.
Now, what I like to do is I like to use what I call trigger words. A trigger word is a list of words that I have. We actually have a giant ongoing list in the Simple Sites Big Profits course. This trigger word method, this trigger word list gives you a list of words. Now, this list of words is not tied to a market. I don’t know what they are. These words are things like download, won’t, find, PDF, that says PDF, learn. Maybe it says spreadsheet. Maybe it says file. Maybe it says something like can’t. Now what these words do, notice that these are not tied to any market. They might want to download videos. They might want to download a template. We don’t know. Won’t. I don’t know what they want. They just don’t want something or something won’t do something. Find. They’re looking to find something. PDF. They probably want some kind of PDF or something like that. Very, very cool.
We got to look at this in a really objective way. Learn. What do they want to learn? They could want to learn Spanish. They could want to learn internet marketing. They could want to learn pretty much anything, anything. We look at this and we say, “Okay. What do these words do?” Well, what these words do is they give you a backdoor into what’s going on in Google that other marketers and other companies haven’t figured out yet. This is extremely important because when we go to the Google Keyword Tool and instead of typing something like diet, or make money, or lose weight, or affiliate marketing, or web hosting, what we’re going to find is other things because all we want to do is be curious about what the market wants.
We’re going to take something. We’re going to take something like download and we’re going to put that in the Google AdWords Keyword Planner. If you don’t have access to the planner, we actually have something set up for you at keywordsniffer.com so you can go in there and you can see a gauge of what’s going on without signing up for an account. But later on down the road, obviously you want to get an account.
We look at this and we’re like, “Okay. We want to go into the Google AdWords Tool and we want to type something in like download.” What’s going to happen is it’s going to say, “Download YouTube video. Download PDF. Download whatever,” and all these things that people want to download. Now, our job as marketers is to say, “Well, what can we do with this?” Again, behind every search, there is a desire and an intent. What is the intent of someone looking to download PDFs or download WordPress plugins? What is their intent? Well, we have to dig and we have to look at that. For example, let’s say that someone is looking for won’t or can’t. Let’s say we type “won’t” in the Google Keyword Tool and they put something like “puppy won’t stop biting.” There we go. Check that out. Now, look at the difference. You have something like puppy training. All these guys, all these huge companies are going for the word “puppy training” and it’s very, very competitive. We looked at it and we’re like, “This is super competitive. What am I going to do here? It’s not going to work.”
Again, when the guy comes in, his intent is I just want to train my puppy. You don’t know what kind of puppy. You don’t know what the problems are. You don’t know what he wants to train him to do. You don’t know anything. All you know is they want to train a puppy. It’s a very difficult market to get into just like weight loss. We don’t know much about them.
Now, if we go for something like our trigger word and we find something like “puppy won’t stop biting.” Now, check this out. This is why this is so important. If we have a thousand people a month or let’s say 10,000 people a month or whatever it is looking for “puppy won’t stop biting,” then we’re going to take a look at this and we’re going to be like, “Okay. Check this out.” We got 10,000 people or a thousand people a month or whatever it is and they’re looking up “puppy won’t stop biting.” Now, here I know the problem. The problem is that they desire their puppy to stop biting them just like I do. My puppy is biting me all the time and we found out that if you get a little can with some pennies in it and shake it, they usually stop or something like that. Puppy won’t stop biting.
Now, this person is looking for a direct solution. Now, follow with me on this. Is it easier to get people that come in on puppy training and you say, “Hi, I’m Marcus. I’m the puppy trainer. I had a puppy who was a brat and now the puppy is happy.” Or, is it easier to say, “Hi, I’m Marcus. My puppy wouldn’t stop biting. The puppy bit us all the time and it was really, really annoying. If you want to learn how to make your puppy stop biting you, there’s three things that I’m going to teach you. One, it has to do with the psychology of the puppy. Two, it has to do with verbal cues and, three, it has to do with how you train them and everything else. Now, as a bonus, I’m not only just going to teach you about how to make your puppy stop biting, but I’m also going to teach you how to train your puppy, how to house train your puppy, make them stop crapping in the house, all this stuff. Put your name and email in the box for this.”
Now, all you have to do is find good information about this one topic. All I have to do is say, “Well, I’m going to be an expert. I’m going to make a website all about puppy won’t stop biting.” If I get let’s say 500 to a thousand of the 10,000 people that searched for it, or whatever it is, if I get those people, now I am building a mailing list based on what these people want. I’m basing it on this. Now, the people come into me, they say, “That Marcus guy sure is swell. He gave us good information. He helped us out with our puppy. Our puppy doesn’t bite anymore or whatever and that information is good. I think I will buy some stuff.” Really cool.
Now, as an affiliate marketer, as an internet marketer, our goal is to use these trigger words in a way that really, really, really captures what these people want. We want to go in and we want to capture what they want. We want to figure it out and then we branch out. Instead of going from the puppy training market, going after all these competitive stuff, trying to compete with the big dogs, all I’m doing is breaking the market up using the trigger words and saying, “Hey, I’m going to go after puppy won’t.” Then you break it down and you say, “Okay. Dog won’t. Puppy can’t. Puppy won’t. Puppy stop.” Whatever and you do your deep keyword research and you make sites on all of them.
Here’s the deal. If I can make a site on puppy won’t stop biting and I can get 500 to a thousand people to come to my site and put their name and email in the box, that means my list is growing by 750 people a month or approximately 10,000 people per year. If I’m growing by 10,000 people per year, that’s pretty cool in just this one little market. Now, if I have another one like puppy poops in the house, if I have that and I get, let’s say, another 3,000 or another 10,000 or whatever, now I’m building myself as an expert and now I have all this content for all these people and now I’m positioning myself in a way that really works.
But if you don’t know what to go into because you might say, “Well, Marcus, I don’t know to go into the puppy one.” That’s where you start with the trigger words. You start with these words and you’ll find stuff like: can’t, I can’t do this, I can’t fix my car, why can’t I find a job? Different things like that and you want to find out what they’re searching for. It’s very, very, very important. Another word that I like to use is something like “before,” “before or after.” You look at this and you’re like, “What do people want before or after? What do I before a job interview? What do I do before this? What do I do after a car accident? What do I do after I apply for a job? What do I do?” People are going to be looking this stuff up and it’s always very easy to start with these trigger words. This is how you find your audience. This is how you find the right group of people to market to.
You’re going to through there because a lot of people say, “Marcus, I don’t know where to start.” The hardest place to start is always where you don’t know. If you don’t know what to do, like if I say, “I’m going to go to the gym and lose weight but I don’t know what I want to work on or how to do it or what kind of weights to lift or anything like that,” then I’m going to be stuck. I’m going to be dead in the water. But if I go through and instead I say, “Well, maybe I’ll work on my abs or I’ll get a trainer or something like that,” then it’s going to help. If you look at these trigger words, this is what’s going to make all the difference.
Now, if you’re struggling and you don’t know where to get started and you say, “Marcus, you seemed to be pretty good at finding these trigger words. I’d like to find some kind of market like this.” We actually have a service where we help you do that. Whether you have an existing business, or an existing idea, or whether you’re brand new, this service will help you either by finding you the words that are going to work for you and giving you a plan to make it work or finding you a market off the bat that maybe you don’t know what to go into. We’ll find that market for you, buy your domain, get your keywords, set up some content, set up your site and we’ll also tell you the keywords and the offers to run. Once you have your word, like once I have puppy won’t stop biting, now I know all I got to do is find something for puppy lovers or find some kind of puppy training product that I can promote as an affiliate and, boom, I’m off to the races and it works really well.
Now, the difference here is going to be puppy training is going to be like a dollar or more per click because you got big companies out there. “Puppy won’t stop biting” is going to be like 10¢ a click or less. You’re going to get traffic a lot cheaper. They’re going to be a lot easier to convert and that’s how we choose our market. We choose our market by not having any preconceived idea of what’s going on. We choose our market by saying, “Well, what are these people searching for? What are they interested in? What is their intent? What’s their desire and how do we match that need?” If you can match that need, everything else will fall into place.
What I want you to do is I want you to get in the habit of using the trigger words and using the tools. If you go over to keywordsniffer.com, you could check out our keyword tool. You could play around with it, see how it works and plug in some of these keywords and see what’s going on. Because if you could plug in some of these keywords and find things that are going to work, then curiosity definitely helps you in that aspect because so many people are trying to fit something to an existing market rather than just saying, “Hey, what are people doing already?”
You see, the beauty of internet marketing and where people struggle is that they try to force something. They try to go out there and they try to say, “Well, I know there’s a lot of money in weight loss. How do I find a noncompetitive keyword? How do I find an offer that’s going to fit?” They struggle because, hey, that’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Instead, what I do is I say, “What does the market look up? What do they want? What are they interested in? How can I help them with that?” If you can get into the habit of helping people find what they’re searching for, then life is going to be a lot easier for you as an affiliate marketer.
