Blueprint To Creating An Online Income Machine

As you may hopefully have found out, making money online isn’t all that difficult and IF NOT this article should give you the keys to starting your online income machine. The only difficult people usually have is gaining the knowledge and TAKING ACTION (that’s the bit many miss, don’t be one of them).

I’m going to outline a rather simple and straight forward system that I believe anyone can use to make income. It can be scaled up as large as you like, depending on how much time you want to put into it and what you want out of it. And it’s easy enough for even new marketers to do.

Mind you, this is not my invention, but rather a system that has been working for many marketers for years. It’s not a shiny new bauble – instead, it’s a proven method that brings home the pay check week in and week out – if you put in the time and effort required.

Ready? Let’s get started.

1. Choose your niche. I’m going to make it easy for you here by recommending that you choose one of the following 3 niches: Money and finance, health and fitness, or relationships and dating. All three are evergreen and bring in a ton of money.

**NOTE: One of the easiest places to find products and services in your niche is CLICKBANK, registration is both free and easy and you can start promoting products straight away…sales via your links send moolah into you bank!**

For purposes of this training, we’re going to focus on health, because I believe it’s truly the easiest of the 3 niches in which to make money. True, there’s plenty of competition, but that won’t really be a factor for what we’re doing. That’s because people who are desperate for a health related solution such as alleviating pain or losing weight are ready to make a purchase now.

Google “most common illnesses” and you’ll find acne, allergies, ADHD, arthritis, asthma, back pain, bad breath, bursitis, etc. And that’s just a few from the A’s and B’s. $320 billion is spent on prescription drugs in the U.S. alone each year, and that doesn’t include over the counter medications and remedies.

This is a HUGE market full of desperate buyers. So forget selling granny square patterns or children’s bedtime stories for now – focus on where the money is.

And if you want to focus on money or relationships, those are always hot, hungry markets as well.

2. Choose a product to sell. This is going to be your OTO (One Time Offer) after they opt in to your squeeze page (a squeeze page is one that asks people to enter their email for access to information or offer). Most people will tell you to create your free report, then create your squeeze page, and then find an OTO to offer after they opt in.


This is good advice. After all, they found your squeeze page, they filled out the form and they pressed the button – they are eager for a solution to their problem! Logically this is the time to offer it to them.

But I do things just a bit differently. I find the product I’m going to be promoting as my OTO first. Preferably I also find a second, similar product to use as my back up, in case the owner of the first product pulls it (yes, it happens.) The reason I find the product first is because I want to tailor my squeeze page and my free report to that EXACT topic.

For example, if my OTO is how to cure adult acne, I will write my report on ADULT acne, not teenage acne. But if I had done things the way most people do, I could have had a report on teenage acne and an OTO on adult acne. Sure it’s the same problem, but it’s two entirely different markets and my conversion rate on the OTO would have been terrible. That’s why you want to find the product you’re going to be promoting as your OTO first.

What product should you choose? Here are criteria to look for:

Low price – something less than $15 is ideal because it becomes an impulse purchase. And that’s exactly what you need here, because you haven’t yet established a lot of credibility with your new list member.

Excellent product – you’ve got to buy the product and make sure it really delivers on whatever it promises. This is no time to be selling junk. Actually, there is never a time to be selling junk.

High conversion rate – okay, this is a no-brainer. You want a product that converts really well so that you’re making money.

The ADVANCED ALTERNATIVE to promoting an affiliate product is to create your own product. The drawback is you need to create it or hire someone else to do it for you, either of which takes time. The benefit is you keep 100% of your sales, rather than splitting them with a product owner.

**FREE Product Creation Course**

The CHEAT METHOD to creating your own product is of course to use some high grade PLR (Private Label Rights are products, usually information or courses that you can brand as your own and give as lead magnets or sell of 100% profit).

If you are using your own product, here’s a trick I like to use: At the top of the sales page, let them know that their free report is on its way to their inbox. This builds consistency and credibility and shows them they’re at the right place.


3. Next you’re going to create something to give away to your new niche. Here’s the key – you’re not going to slap together any old report or re-purpose some PLR. Instead, you’re going to create something so awesome, people would PAY YOU to get it. Best of all, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel or come up with some brilliant insight to do this. Instead, you’re going to let others do the research for you.

Head over to Amazon and search for your niche in the book section. Write down titles that grab your attention. Search inside the books and look at the table of contents. Take notes.

Now do the same with magazines in your niche. Look at the headlines on the magazine covers – these can be a goldmine. You’ll need to change them to accommodate your exact niche (and not plagiarize) but that’s easy. You want to pay attention to what the hot topics are and what headlines are used to sell those topics.

Next, visit other websites to pick up more ideas and information. This entire research process should take you about an hour or two, depending on how much time you want to put into it.

Outline the information you’re going to present, and then either write your report or record it, your choice. Don’t want to write it yourself? Then outsource it. It only needs to be 10 to 20 pages of solid, useful information – don’t write a book.

As you go through this process, always keep in mind what you’ll be promoting for your OTO, so that your freebie is 100% consistent with that product. This will give you the highest conversions on your OTO.

4. Make your squeeze page. Hopefully you garnered 1-5 smoking hot headlines during your research. Use these on your squeeze page as the main headline and bullets, let them know they get the report for free for opting in, and that’s it. Don’t make this complicated – less is more. Create excitement and curiosity. Again, if you don’t want to make your own squeeze page, you can always outsource it.

A word to the wise: Once you begin using your squeeze page, test it. Test headlines, test colors, test the call to action – just TEST. The more you test, the better conversions your page will get, the more you will make. Doesn’t testing seem boring? Let me ask you this – does doubling your conversions and thus doubling what you earn seem boring? Don’t think about it, just do it.

IMPORTANT: If you’re using double opt in to build your list, customize the page they land on after confirming their subscription. At the top of that page, let them know their report is on its way. Then either direct them to your affiliate page if you’re promoting an affiliate product, or place your sales letter on this same page. This gives them a second opportunity to purchase your offer.

5. Get some professional articles written. These articles have got to be outstanding, so unless you’re a brilliant writer, I would suggest hiring this out to a professional.

Remember when you did your research in magazines and books? These are your very best clues as to what to write about and even how the title should read. Keep in mind: If you see something on the cover of a current magazine, that likely means it’s a hot topic now and will make an excellent topic for one of your articles.


Number of articles to write: At least 2, although 30+ is better. If you’re on a budget, start small and get more written later. The articles should be magazine quality. They should immediately capture attention and rivet the reader all the way to the end of the article.

Add your resource box to each article. This is your call to action where you promise the reader your shiny new report if they simply visit your totally awesome (squeeze) page.

An alternative to sending them to your squeeze page is to send them to your blog or website. Be sure to have a sign-up form on every single page of your site, offering your free report.

Variation: If you’re sending your new traffic straight to your blog or website, make it for “members only.” This means they have to opt in to get to your website and read the content. Yes, this is also a great way to list build. I recommend testing between the squeeze page, straight to the website with opt-in forms and making your website member’s only to see which one converts the best.

6. Find blogs in your niche. You’re looking for blogs that match your niche really well, that get lots of traffic (bare minimum – 10,000 hits a month) and that are open to guest written articles. If a blog doesn’t meet all 3 of these criteria, then take a pass.

One note here: The higher traffic blogs might be harder to break in to, but they’re well worth the effort. If you are more comfortable starting out with blogs of 10,000 visitors a month and working your way up, do it. After all, those 10,000 hit blogs may well be getting 100,000 visitors or more soon, and if you’re already established there, so much the better.

Also, visit each blog you’re considering and look at the bylines. Are all of the articles written by one author? Or does this blog accept submissions from others? While it’s not impossible to get your article on a blog that is generally only written by one person, it’s far easier to get it published on a blog that regularly uses guest authors.

7. Rubber meets the road. Remember the articles you had written? You’re going to contact these blog owners and give them your articles. Give each blog owner 2-3 articles, and only give each article away once so that each blog owner gets completely unique material from you.

Why give each blog owner 2-3 articles instead of just 1? Because you’re proving that you can consistently write great articles. Also, what if the one article you send them is on a topic they don’t want to cover? Or maybe they just did an article on it? By sending more than one article you give them a choice and you also greatly increase the odds that they will publish at least one article for you.

Here’s how you give the articles away: Contact these people. Do it through email, through Facebook, through Skype, whatever. Better yet, contact them through all of those methods at the same time. No, you’re not spamming them. You are HELPING them. Send them a very friendly, upbeat message that includes the following points:

You’ve been reading their blog

You love what they write

You’ve written exclusive articles just for them

The articles are free – they can do whatever they want with them

No strings attached

You would like (LOVE!) to be a guest writer on their blog

If they would publish one of your articles on their blog with your

author’s box to help you get exposure, that would be totally awesome

Thank you

What you’ve just done:

You’ve made contact and you’ve GIVEN them something right off the bat, no strings attached. What happens when 99 out of 100 people contact a blog owner? They WANT something. But you are GIVING something, and it’s something totally cool, too: Well written articles that are perfect their blog.

You’ve got a new contact in your field. Do you think s/he might want more articles? And maybe they will even promote one of your own products? It could happen, and it starts with this initial contact.

You’ve solved a problem for this new contact – you’ve given him or her high quality content. If you’re a blog owner, you know how hard it can be to create new content week after week. Having help is always much appreciated.

You’ve got some serious link juice going. You’re contacting BIG blogs with major traffic, many of which will be posting your articles. Think Google will notice? Absolutely!

You’ve got traffic. FREE traffic. Highly TARGETED, raving fanatical traffic visiting your website.

You are building a LIST out of this traffic. A list of highly targeted people who think you must be an expert because you write articles on important blogs. Traffic that reads your stuff. Traffic that BUYS your stuff.

You are making money immediately with your OTO. Remember, you’ve got a low priced and highly targeted OTO after your squeeze page. This product is something directly related to the issue you wrote about in the article and in the report.

Total cost for this list building/product selling business? If you do everything yourself, it costs you nothing but time. If you outsource the squeeze page and articles, it might run you a couple of hundred dollars, more or less.

What do you do now? Rinse and repeat. Continue writing articles (or having someone write articles for you) and continue contacting new blogs. Write more articles for the blogs on which you’ve already been published.

This works. Don’t reinvent the wheel – just do it.

The downside is you will find a few blog owners who simply won’t publish your stuff. That’s okay. Most times they will tell you that they won’t, and then you can take those same articles and offer them to a different blog.

Killer Tip: A variation to sending them 2-3 articles is to send one 3-part series. It’s got to be totally researched, relevant and on a hot topic. If you get them to publish this (generally over the course of 3-5 days) you will see even more traffic than you would from getting one regular article published.

Now let’s talk hypothetical numbers just to get a feel for what this system can do for you: You contact one blog that gets 250,000 visitors a month. 25% of them read your article (that’s kind of a low number – you might get more.) Of those who read your article, 40% click your link, and 50% of those get your free report (meaning they joined your list.)

That’s 250,000 times .25, which is 62,500 people who read your article. How cool is that?? Just imagine for a second that 62,500 people read your article and see your byline – you’re already an expert and they haven’t even clicked on your author’s resource box yet.

Of those 62,500 people, 40% click your link. That’s 25,000 people going to your squeeze page. I don’t know about you, but when I think about getting 25,000 HIGHLY targeted people to my squeeze page, my heart beats a little faster and you can’t wipe the grin off my face.

Of those, we’re hypothetically saying that half join your list. I know some of you are thinking that number is high, and for the typical squeeze page it is high. But in this case they’ve just read your article on a high authority website and obviously liked it. They already know why they are coming to your page (to get your super-duper hot report on a topic they’re really interested in) and so you unless your squeeze page totally sucks, you can expect to get a higher than average conversion.

Half of 25,000 is 12,500 new people on your list. People who have read your article. People who think you’re pretty hot stuff. People who are now going to read your report and KNOW you are pretty hot stuff. People who are far more likely than average to open and read your emails.

12,500 people from one article! Okay, true, you had several articles written and probably sent 3 of those to the blog owner, who maybe only published one. Still – is that a good return on your time and money or what???

And if you only do 1/10th as well as our example? Then you still have 1,250 highly targeted new subscribers. Not bad.

To those sceptics who think that only the “big dogs” can make money online, I hope I have just given you something to think about, and more importantly – a plan of ACTION.

One more number I want to throw out here: Suppose you got 12,500 new subscribers per month. Maybe you did it with one article, maybe it took you 20 articles. Whatever. Each month you do what it takes to get 12,500 how new subscribers. Assuming a high attrition rate of 20%, how many subscribers would you have by the next holiday season?

I’ll leave you to do your own math on this one.

Well, I hope you a) found that useful, if not inspirational b) use it as the foundation to TAKING ACTION!

Below are some links to important resources that you will find useful now you are armed with the simplest, most evergreen method of making money online.

I hope you take time to subscribe to my blog for more useful, money making and marketing hints, tips and articles and share this article with you social media platforms.

Until next time.

Two Email Marketing Experts Share With You Their Secret Weapon

Two Email Marketing Experts Share With You Their Secret Weapon That Will Give Anyone An Unfair Advantage…

When It Comes To Email Marketing Most People Start The Same Way…

So you want to start an online business so you start doing some research. Most people will buy a few courses, watch a few videos, and start following around people who are already successful.

Everyone who knows anything about making money online will say that you need to build a list and sell stuff to that list via email. Email marketing really is the fastest, easiest way to make money. You write an email and click the send button.

It’s on demand traffic being sent where ever you want it to go any time you want. After deciding that email marketing is where the money’s at…

People then will typically start by signing up with a major autoresponder service.

They Sign Up and Start Paying the Monthly Fee…

They work hard building up a list of subscribers and people who have opted in to join their list.

Then they start sending emails, but practically no one is opening them.

At the same time, maybe someone has called them from the company’s compliance department to question them about something they’re doing.

This happens all the time.

Here’s the truth when it comes to those big email marketing autoresponder companies…

…And Get Shut Down For Nothing!

Worse Still, Most of Them Can’t Even Deliver Your Email…

With major autoresponders, it’s a numbers game…

They pack as many customers onto a single IP address as they can, and hope for the best… If just one of those customers starts spamming, that IP quickly gets blacklisted and is worthless.

Everyone else on the same IP? Their emails end up in the spam folder, or not delivered at all..

It’s brutal.

Unless you end up paying for a private IP address (which normally costs a lot), you’re really just rolling the dice whenever you click “send”…

You Could Use A Self-Hosted Autoresponder

After getting banned, or getting tired of poor results, it’s totally normal to start going down the “self hosted” route..

After all, you’ve seen other people doing it, you can too, right?

Not so fast!

The good self-hosted autoresponders cost upwards of $700 for a license, and the rest.. well.. they’re pretty awful to use.

Not only that, but…

…But Most of Them Are Terrible & Haven’t Been Updated In Years

There are really two types of self-hosted Autoresponders:

The “Pro” ones from years ago, that people used to use

The junk from sites like Code Canyon, which no email marketer worth their salt would touch with a barge pole.

The ones from years back used to be good, but the truth is that they haven’t been updated in years…

Heck, the most popular one doesn’t even run at all anymore!

Not Only That, But You Practically Need a PhD to Even Get Them Working!

Even if you find one that’s okay (good luck with that hunt!), odds are it ain’t gonna be easy to get it up and running…

These things were intended for the IT gurus at large marketing firms to get running, not regular people like us!

FTPing files around, creating databases, editing config files, setting up certificates…

You may as well just enrol in a computer science degree before even trying…

It’s Time To Start Email Marketing The Easy Way…

Introducing: WP Response Pro

The Easiest Ever Autoresponder Plugin

  • Installs on WordPress In Minutes

  • Integrate With Any SMTP Service

  • Create Unlimited Lists

  • Create Unlimited Autoresponders

  • Create Unlimited Broadcasts

  • Built-in Email Countdown Timers

  • Built-in Smart Pixel Regargeting

Installing WP Response Pro is a cinch! There aren’t any wacky configuration files or other stuff to deal with.

Just install the plugin, like you would any other plugin, configure a couple of quick settings, and you’re good to go!

It literally couldn’t be any easier than it is to get up and running.

With WP Response Pro, there’s nothing holding you back from getting started building your list, and boosting your profits…

Get Better Open Rates, Higher Clicks & More Sales

Since all your emails are branded with your own domain (and not some generic one like,, etc..). You’ll get better inboxing rates.

Better inboxing rates means more opens.

Which means more clicks…

Which means more sales!

Coupled with our so-easy-to-understand-your-dog-could-read-them reports, and you’ll know exactly how well your emails are performing…

Plug In Any SMTP Service You Feel Like, Or Use Your Webhost For FREE

With WP Response Pro, you’re never stuck using any particular SMTP service.

This means to you can quickly and easily test out different services like Sendgrid, Amazon SES, Postmark and any other SMTP service you want to.

Heck, most people have great results using their webhosts SMTP server, which is totally free to use, and doesn’t require any setup at all!

Don’t get stuck in one place like other Autoresponders, keep your freedom to use other services…

Import Any Lists You Want – No Restrictions

Oh this is just beautiful…

How many times have you tried to test out a new Autoresponder, only to be told you couldn’t upload your customer list.

Who the heck are they to tell you how to run your business?

With WP Response Pro, you can do as you want, whenever you want.

There’s no one to tell you what yo do, it’s totally up to you, and you alone…

Integrate With Any Page Builder Using The Built-In Form Generator

WP Response Pro has a built-in form builder you can use to create simple HTML forms for signups.

You can then use these to integrate with practically any page builder, optin builder, or anything else.

You can even just give the form code to your web developer and have them build a landing page for you directly – no other services required!

Boost Sales & Conversions With Built-In Email Countdown Timers

With WP Response Pro, there’s no need to pay for clumsy services to provide you with email countdown timers – they’re built right into the platform!

To add one in, just click the countdown timer button on the toolbar, configure when it will expire, and you’re done!

Countdown timers can be used in both broadcast and autoresponder sequences (try doing that with a clumsy old countdown timer service).

Boost your sales and conversions with the smartest email countdown timer integration around…

Get Smart With Pixel-Based Email Triggers

Imagine this…

You visit a page about a product you’re interested in…

10 minutes later, you get an email with a coupon for that exact product.

Pretty slick right?

That’s exactly the type of retargeting and segmentation you can do with WP Response Pro’s pixel feature.

Think of it like using Adwords or Facebook retargeting, but for your list, and 100 times simpler to use.

Guess which Autoresponder I use? lol

Until next time

How To Get Traffic To Your Website

How To Get Traffic To Your Website

No matter what you do online if you are trying to sell a product or service you need traffic/footfall/eye balls on it and they need to be targeted visitors not just vanity statistics……

I would rather have 50 or 100 visitors a day that are already looking for what I am promoting than thousands of hits/visits from people or in some cases bots, that have no intention to buy or enquire.

Getting the “right” sort of traffic within your niche is NOT an easy job, NOT just a matter of popping a post on Facebook, it takes a deal of work to find your perfect clients and once you find them its about how you catch their eye as being “the one” to fulfil their needs and solve their problems.

Traffic can be driven in many ways and via many sources, some better for certain businesses and not for others.

Whether you are just starting out online or area seasoned online business you will ALWAYS need more traffic, more opportunities and the online world is changing, you will need to be even more savvy as more and more businesses decide to move from high street to the internet highway….competition will be hard, but I can offer you support and resources in all things “traffic” and even help you set up your first online offering.

Contact me to talk through any traffic or website concerns you may have, consultation is FREE.

Love Hate Relationship – How I discovered a great lead-generation tool

Finding a program that fits all of your needs as a business requiring marketing options that help you easily utilise email as the backbone of your campaigns, has been for many years, for me, very much a “love….hate” relationship.

When I started my career in online marketing, I wanted to use the best lead-generation technology available. So I diligently combed the market for innovations.

But even after choosing technology, I spent a lot of time reviewing the latest tech news to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.

It burned up a lot of hours — time I could have spent on my core business. And it required a lot of mental bandwidth. (There are only so many things you can focus on in a day.)

A friend noticed my dilemma and pointed me to GetResponse. She told me they had some new tools that would interest me.

She suggested that instead of constantly searching for innovations, I should choose an innovative company and let them do the searching for me.

Believe me, I liked the sound of that. So I checked it out. She was right!

In recent years, GetResponse has come up groundbreaking innovations:

Responsive Email Design – They were first in the industry to introduce a design interface that automatically formats every message to fit the screens of any mobile or desktop device and any operating system.

Landing Pages – And they added a slick, new design interface to their platform that turns out high-converting landing pages in minutes.

Forms – They also integrated forms with landing pages to funnel sign-ups into email campaigns automatically.

Webinars – Their latest innovation is a webinar platform, now an integrated component of their PRO service option — great for demos.

And more – They’ve produced innovations in video email marketing, smartphone apps, QR codes, A/B testing, inbox preview, email timing, global view, perfect timing, and custom fields.

Just as important, they constantly update the long-time favorites:

Autoresponders – GetResponse added sophisticated timing controls and action-triggered emails and then combined it with advanced segmentation for targeted campaigns with the look and feel of one-to-one communication.

Email Creator – Likewise, they reinvented the email design interface, giving users access to hundreds of professionally designed templates, a drag-and-drop editing interface, and point-and-click tools for campaign development.

Email Analytics – And they expanded email analytics to report autoresponder performance and social media sharing. They even dovetailed it with segmentation, so users can click to create segments for finer targeting.

Can you see that I’m a big fan of GetResponse? Check it out, and you’ll discover it’s an all-inclusive platform — the only online lead-generation tool you’ll ever need.


And let me know what you think.
