Online Marketers: The One Simple Shift that will Catapult You to Success

It’s my opinion that any online marketer - regardless of niche - who doesn’t do the following is essentially hiking up a rocky mountain barefoot when s/he could be taking the ski lift.

Online marketing boils down to this: We either create our own products or choose affiliate products, and then we spend our precious time, energy and money getting people to BUY those products.

But only a relatively small percentage of marketers make the one simple shift that will catapult them to...

How to Sell Products at a Ridiculous Markup

I’d love to call this a case study, but I don’t have enough info to do that. What I can say is that this must be making money or they wouldn’t keep doing it.

Lately, my Adblocker isn’t always working correctly on YouTube, which is why I suddenly see ads appear before my videos, and it’s been a real learning experience for me. If you have an ad blocker, you might disable it for a few days to see what you’ve been missing.

Recently I watched a YouTube video...

When Typos Cost You Money (and my simple fix)

I just received an email from a well-known online marketer. The guy has been in the business at least 20 years and makes significant bank – or at least I assume he does – who knows.

I clicked over from the email to his sales letter which was interesting for more than just the...

Like when affiliates send you traffic.

Oh, wait… you have to PAY those affiliates.

Okay, but when you do guest posting, and appear on podcasts, and haunt forums and do all those other things that are free…

Except all of that takes TIME. And it may – or may not – send you the traffic you seek.

Hmmm….

What if we thought of advertising as an investment?

Let’s say you invest in real...

Weird Website Trick Increases Conversions in Any Market

You’re going to think this is too simple to work.

Big mistake.

Certain website designs attract certain target markets. The design that attracts gardeners, for example, is going to be different than the design that attracts electrical engineers.

Knowing this, the question becomes, “How do you design a website that you KNOW will attract your target market like no other?”

And how do you do this without a lot of market research, testing, trial and error and so forth?

It’s...

When Your Competitors Don’t Play Fair

Rule #1 of online marketing… there aren’t nearly as many rules as you might think.

Rule #2 of online marketing… some people will do things that really should be against the rules. And sometimes these things will really make you mad.

Rule #3 of online marketing… you can’t change what they do and getting mad won’t help. But what you can do is sleep well at night.

Here’s what I’m talking about:

Within the ‘make money online’ niche,...

If you were to guess the #1 problem marketers face when launching a new product – what would you say?

Not having enough information?

There are products, courses and programs galore that teach how to create and launch a new product.

Lack of technical know-how?

Anyone can hire the technical help they need online.

Creating a Website You Can Sell for $500,000

Imagine you build a website, drive traffic, monetize the heck out of it, list build, drive more traffic, and then sell the whole thing off.

How much can you get?

That’s going to depend on a lot of factors, including the niche you’ve chosen, how big and responsive your email list is, and how much money your website earns. Usually, ordinary money-making websites are valued at 2x or 3x annual income. But if you’ve built a large responsive list to go with the site, you can...
