The Newbie Workbook Use this workbook as a day-by-day action guide to get real results with Internet marketing in 30 days. Letter From The Author – Bryan Zimmerman Let me congratulate you on your purchase of Micro Niche Finder! You've made a great choice of keyword tools, and once you start using it, you'll really start to learn just how powerful the tool really is. I was honored when I was approached to have this ebook given to those of you who have purchased the Micro Niche Finder software. My name is Bryan Zimmerman and what you're about to read is an exact blueprint that I followed to create myself a nice mid four figure a month income. If you follow it, along with using the keyword tool you just purchased, there really is no way you can't make money. Stay focused, put your nose to the grindstone and get to work! Do that, and you have nothing but success infront of you. If you are anything like I was when I first started attempting to make money online, you're probably ready to pull your hair out. While there is no doubt a ton of information available that can tell you what you need to do, attempting to sort through it all without getting information overload is next to impossible. What you are about to read is a step by step process that will allow you to take the guess work out of the equation. By no means is this the only way to make money on the internet. There are thousands of different paths you can choose. Some require more work than others and some cost more money than others. The way I am about to show you is one that will not cost you a dime of your own money if you do not want it to. These methods can be followed by using strictly free resources. You of course can speed up the process by spending a little bit of your own money, but it is by no means necessary. This step by step process that I'm about to show you was designed to take you about 2 -3 hours per day. I had a day job as well and that was about all the time I could afford to spend. At first it may take you a little longer, but as you get comfortable doing the steps you will find your speed will increase. If you cannot get through the steps each day, do not get upset and quit because you are behind! Just keep at it and do as much as you can. Pick up where you left off the next day if you get a little behind. JUST KEEP WORKING and you will get results. Every day there will be a list of tasks to do for the day. Follow the list and you will do fine. Each day there is a "done" line for you to check off your tasks as you finish them. This way it will be very easy to keep track of what you did for the day. Just print the pages out and put them in a binder for easy, well-organized, access. Now before you begin, I want you to realize that this process is completely repeatable. Lets take a small amount and say you are getting say $20.00 a day from one niche. That's great! Now, all you have to do is repeat this exact same process all over again. But this time you'll do it with another niche. And if that second niche makes you $20.00 a day as well, then now you're up to $40.00 each day. Do the math.... $40.00 X 7=$280.00 per week. $280.00 per week X 4=$1,120.00 per month. That's not bad money for a little work is it? Now, repeat the process over and over and over again, and you can literally make as much money as you want. The last part of this book explains to you how you can really increase your income in a hurry. I do strongly suggest that you follow all of the steps yourself first, before you try what I talked about at the end. Learning how to do these fundamental internet marketing tasks yourself is the beginning of a learning process that will give you the education and understanding you will need to make your internet marketing business succeed. One thing I will stress is that you need to focus! I know there are countless distractions with new emails constantly hypeing the latest and greatest thing or some new product that claims to make you thousands overnight. Here's what makes money online...having the proper tools and WORKING on productive tasks. Reading emails and playing around on Facebook is not productive. There is a program called The Focus Master that will force you stay productive and not get distracted. It's a free software program that will force you to be accountable. I've used it for over 1 ½ years now and it works IF you actually use it. You can pick a free copy here. Sincerely, Bryan Zimmerman Day 1 What you are going to do today is decide on what product it is that you are going to promote. Go to Clickbank and search through their market place to find a digital product to promote. While this is not the only place to find products to promote, you get more information about what is selling and how well it is selling. Both very important pieces of information. There are a few things you are going to want to look at while searching for a product to promote. First look at the gravity of the product. This number will tell you how many people were paid that week for selling that particular product. If the number is above 75 then you know the product sells pretty well. If you see a product that has a gravity of 500 then you know it is really selling well. Now some people will tell you to pick a product that has a gravity of around 20 - 30 because people are making sales and you do not have near the competition for sales that a product that has a gravity of 500. It's up to you which way you want to go. I'll give you a little bit of advice and tell you to stay away from promoting IM products and weight loss products. Both of those niches are extremely flooded by others marketing those products. I'm not saying that you cannot make some sales in these niches but getting consistent sales with these methods can be difficult. Recently the relationship niche has become very over crowded as well. It is a good niche as there are many sub-niches within it, but it is still very crowded with affiliates. If you decide you want to try any of the IM (this includes forex trading), weight loss or dating niche, go ahead but just know you're up against a lot of competition. After you have decided on a product there are a few places we are going to check to see how much it is in demand...or not in demand. First I like to go to Ezine Articles and in the search box at the top type in the name of your product and review. This will bring up a list of articles and you can just pick on any one you choose. At the bottom of the article you chose, you will see a list of recently published articles, most viewed articles for the last 60 days and the most published articles for the last 60 days. Go through the most viewed articles for the last 60 days and see how many views each one has had. If you find articles there that have gotten anywhere from 3000 views and up then its a pretty good bet there are lots of people interested in that topic. Save the page of the article that has the most views in your favorites because we are going to come back to it tomorrow. Next, go to yahoo answers and search for questions that your product could solve. If you see there are a lot of questions your product could solve then you have probably picked a good product. Now you want to find out if the people answering those questions are leaving links to products in their answers. If they all are, then you know the competition is going to be stiff at Yahoo Answers. If there are no links to products in the answers, you may have good success making sales just by leaving a link in your answers. To go through this whole process will probably take you a few hours. TAKE YOUR TIME! Picking good products is vital to success. If you hurry through this and select a garbage product, you will not do as well as you could have with a good product. That's it for day 1. Tomorrow we do keyword research. Day 2 Today you are going to concentrate on keyword research. For this system you are going to concentrate on long tailed keywords. I'll use the relationship niche for this example. Go back to Ezine Articles and go to the article page you saved in your favorites yesterday. While on the page of the article you are going to hit the "View" button on your tool bar. (It's usually on the left side at the top of the page next to "File" and "Edit"). After you have hit the "View" button, scroll down to where it says "Source". Click on the "Source" button and a window will pop up in your Windows Notepad(text editor). There you will see a lot of writing and symbols. It is html code and it will look something like this: meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us"> <meta name="description" content="How to Get Your Ex Back - The Simple Guide"> <meta name="keywords" content="get ex back, win back ex, get ex girlfriend back, get ex boyfriend back, break up, breakup"> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico"> What you are looking for is the word "keywords" I have highlighted it above and bolded it. The words that follow it that I have highlighted are the long tail keywords we are looking for. Long tail keywords are phrases (three words or longer), that people type into the search engines to look for something. What you are going to do is open up Notepad on your computer and copy and paste those keywords one underneath the other into the Notepad file. Then go to the next-most-viewed article and do the same thing. Once you have a few dozen long tailed keywords, it's time to get some more another way. There are so many keyword tools that you can use. Everyone has their own favorite one so it will be up to you to find one that you like the best. The ones I use are Micro Niche Finder (which you now have) and Word Tracker. By typing the keywords you found into these research tools, you will be able to see an approximate daily search average for the phrase entered. You are looking for a word that gets at least 30 searches a day. Go through these tools with different variations of phrases. So for the relationship niche you would type in: get my ex back, getting an ex back, ways to get an ex back and so forth. Any word that you see that has at least 30 searches a day, you need to copy it and paste it on the Notepad file you have opened. Once you have 10 or 20 of these long tailed keywords, it's time to check out the competition you are up against. To check competition you are going to go to Google and put one of your long tailed keyword phrases into the search browser. When Google brings you back the results, you will want to look at the everything on the first page. Take note of the number of result pages it brings back. What you are looking for are free sites such as Youtube, Ezinearticles, Scribd, Hubpage, Wordpress, Blogger or any other page that is a free source, and which shows up on the first page of Google results for your long tailed keyword you have entered. If you see nothing but authority sites then it's a good bet to leave that keyword alone. Not saying that you cannot get on the first page eventually but for this process right now were not going to mess with it. The next thing you need to do is put quotation marks around the keyword you searched with and hit the search button again. This time you are looking for the number of results. If that number is under 20,000 then you will have a good chance to rank for that keyword. The last thing you want to look for is if there are any paid ads on the results page. If there are a decent amount of paid advertisement and low competition then you have yourself a winner. Don't just stop at one long tailed keyword phrase. See if you can find several a few of them. Go ahead now and clear out the words you had in Notepad except for the ones you are going to use. Make sure to save the Notepad. Everything you need to save for this campaign we will put into that Notepad file. It makes it very easy to keep your campaign organized this way. That's it for day 2. Day 3 Today you are going to sign up for all the sites that you will be using for this campaign. The first thing to do is open up a new email address for this campaign. I like to use Google's G-mail but you can use any email account you want. I suggest you pick a pen name for this niche and use it, as well as the same email address, for all of your usernames at these sites. By using the same user name at all of these sites, it will make it very easy to sign in when you're ready to use them. Remember to save your username and password to these sites to your Notepad you saved for this campaign. Go ahead now and sign up for the sites below. Squidoo Blogger Wordpress Hubpages Social Marker - sign up for the "best" and "dofollow" lists only while your there. Rss Aggregators Ezine Articles - Sign up for 2 accounts. Go Articles --------- Articles Base -------------------- Search Warp ---------------------------- These will be the article directories referred to later. Article Dashboard ------------- Buzzle ---------------------- Yahoo Answers Day 4 There are two paths you can choose before we start. You can hope that you picked a good niche and just begin on the next page. Or you can spend a few dollars now on a few domain names and do some proper testing. I personally like to pick two or three niches and buy a few domain names. I will then spend about two weeks and write a lot of articles (3 articles,per product, each day). I will submit those articles to Ezine and various other article directories. The domain names I bought, I will have them redirect to the affiliate page of the product that I am promoting. It only cost me about $30.00 and it is a good way to see if the product is going to get you sales or not. I want to do that before I spend the next 30 days building web pages. Some will disagree with me and say that if you picked a product with a high enough gravity, you already know it converts. Therefore, the more pages you can get out there with your affiliate link on it the better chance you have of making sales. It's up to you which way you want to go. My opinion is that doing a lot of work and seeing no results is a big reason why many people get fed up with internet marketing and quit. They spend days and months building pages to a product and get no results. Well maybe they just picked a product that did not convert! If you do proper testing, you won' t have this frustration. After you have decided which path you want to take to begin, you need to spend the rest of the day learning everything you can about your niche. Go to Ezine Articles and read every article you can that people have written about your niche. Follow the links in the resource boxes and see what their landing pages look like. Are the resource boxes going to a website, blog, Hub Page, Squidoo Lens or Wordpress page? Most people will have two links in their resource box so make sure you check them both to see where they are going. Read their landing pages and see how they are worded. Would they make you want to click on the links? Ask yourself "Why" or "Why not". Go to Squidoo, Wordpress, Hubpages and Blogger and look at how the top ranking pages look. What type of pictures do they have on them? Look at their titles. Where are their links? Do they have banner ads, and what are they doing that caught YOUR eye? Take notes as to what they are doing to give them the best chance of success. You will want to implement these things on your own sites. Compare the most highly-ranked pages to ones that are not ranked as high. Try to figure out what the reason or difference is. Is it keyword optimization or content? (That is it for Day 4.) Day 5 Today begins actual work. If you decided to go the route of buying domain names, you will start here after you spend two weeks writing articles to test your niche conversions. Below there will be things listed by numbers. Just follow the numbers, in that order, to do each days assignments. At the end of each task there will be a space that says "done" with a line above it. Print the day's worksheet out and check off the tasks as "done" one by one as you complete them. This way if you do not finish everything for the day, you know where you left off. Organization is crucial to your success as well as following through on these tasks. If you do a half-assed job you can expect half-assed results. Lets get to work. 1. Go to Blogger and sign in to your account you created. Here you are going to build your landing page IF you are not using your own domain. If you have taken notes on how other peoples pages looked, you should already have a good idea of what you need to do. This landing page is the one you want to spend the most time on. Make it good and build it around your best keyword! You must write it like making your house payment depends on it. This is going to be your main money page, so make it so good that if you were selling snow, an Eskimo would want to buy it from you. Put your affiliate link at the bottom of the page with a tracking ID. You get your affiliate link at clickbank when you pick your product. Make sure to add the URL of the page, the rss feed URL and your affiliate link to your note pad page that you are saving. _____________ DONE 2. Write 3 articles around one of the keywords you have chosen to use. Submit these articles to Ezine Articles . Make sure your keyword is included in the title, first paragraph, somewhere in the middle of your article and finally in the resource box. Make sure your resource box has a strong call to action. You have to write it in a way that will make people want to click on your link. Don't make it a separate part of your article. I find if you make it an extension or a "way to finish" your article, your click through rates will be much better. Also make sure your key word is in anchor text in your resource box. Submit them to be approved. Now, since you have just created a new account this is going to take anywhere from 48 to 72 hours. Tomorrow you will see why I had you sign up for two Ezine accounts. Here is a little trick to help you get started writing articles if you have never done it before. Find some PLR (private label rights) that have already been written and just rewrite it. DO NOT COPY THEM! You need to put it in your own words, but you can do this without copying. Insert your keywords where you need to and create your own resource box at the end. You can check the "uniqueness" of your article to the one you rewrote by downloading the free software at Dupefree . If your new article has less than 30% duplicate content you should be good to go. ______________ DONE 3. Go to Google Url and add your Blogger page URL. ______________ DONE 4. Go to Live Search Url and add your Blogger page URL. ______________ DONE 5. Go to Pingoat and ping your Blogger URL and Rss Feed. ______________ DONE 6. Social bookmark your Blogger page at the social bookmark sites you signed up for at Social Marker . _______________ DONE 7. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers, put a link to your Blogger page in two answers. _______________ DONE Day 6 1. Write 3 articles around your keywords and submit them to Ezine Articles. _________ DONE 2. Submit your Blogger landing page's RSS Feed to the RSS aggregators from day 3. _________ DONE 3. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers, leaving links in 2 of the answers. ________ DONE Day 7 1. Write 3 articles and submit them to your other account at Ezine Articles. The reason I had you create two accounts is because Ezine Articles only allows you to submit 10 articles before they review your status. They will then either upgrade you and allow you to submit as many articles as you would like, or make you submit an extra 25 articles or so before upgrading you to Platinum status. Because we are going to be writing 3 articles each day there would be a hold up on submitting any more articles once you reach 10. By opening two accounts you will be able to submit 20 articles before reaching any kind of hold up. By then though, you should have had one of your accounts upgraded, and won't have to worry about it anymore. Also, because you are not a platinum author yet, it will sometimes take a few days to get your articles approved. This way you will have two accounts that have their days staggered and you will have articles going live day after day. Now some people will say this is not necessary. I've heard you can just submit some one day and some the next and they will get approved as they came in. For me that has not been the case. I have had articles that I submitted two days prior go live at the same time as articles I submitted two days after them just because I had a back up of "waiting to go live" articles in my account. So to avoid this problem altogether I just open two accounts to begin with. _________ DONE 2. Go to Squidoo and Hubpages and build one of each. Go back and look at your notes and build your pages around what made the other's you viewed successful. Remember to build these pages around your keywords. Make sure your keywords are in the title, in the word text, and in anchor text when you put your links in. Make three modules in each page. In your Squidoo page, link the first module to your Hubpage, for the second module link to your Blogger landing page, and for the third module put a affiliate link with a new tracking code to the actual product you are promoting. Do the same thing at your Hubpage. Just link the first module to your Squidoo, the rest will be the same as above. Make sure to save the URL's and RSS feeds to your Notepad that you are keeping for your campaign. _________ DONE 3. Add the URL for your Squidoo and Hubpage to Google URL and Live Search URL _________ DONE 4. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers. Leave links in 2 of the answers. _________ DAY 8 1. Write 3 articles and submit them to Ezine Articles. __________ DONE 2. Take the RSS feeds for your Squidoo and Hubpage and submit them to the RSS sites from day 3. __________ DONE 3. Social bookmark your Squidoo and Hubpage to the social bookmarking sites from Social Marker . __________ DONE 4. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers. Leave links in 2 answers. __________ DONE Day 9 Your first articles from Ezine should go live today if they did not yesterday. You should see a small burst of traffic from them to your landing page. Be sure to check your click through rate to see how many people actually saw your landing page. You want to have a click through rate of at least 25%. Higher is always better, and lower will sometimes happen but you should shoot for around 25%. If you are not getting close to that number of click throughs then you either need to reword your resource box or write a more compelling article. 1. Write 3 articles around your keyword and submit them to Ezine Articles ________ DONE 2. Rewrite the 3 articles that went live and go to Wordpress. You are going to use the articles you just rewrote to start a blog. In each post, make sure your keywords are in the right places, in anchor text for the link and point it to your landing page. _________ DONE 3. Submit your Wordpress blog's URL to Google URL and Live Search URL. _________ DONE 4. Ping your wordpress blog at Pingoat _________ DONE 5. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers, leaving links in 2 answers. _________ DONE Day 10 Your second set of articles should go live today. Remember to check your click-through stats to see how your resource box is converting. Also check your Clickbank account. Look under the "reports" tab and see how many clicks your actual affiliate link has received. If you put a different tracking code in your Squidoo, Hub, Blogger and Wordpress links, you will be able to tell what page is getting the most traffic to the product sales page. Pay attention to this and check it every day. It is vital to see what pages are at least getting your affiliate link clicked. When you begin to notice one pulling away from the others then you need to take a look at what that page is doing that the others are not. Ok on to today's work. 1. Write 3 articles around your keywords and submit them to Ezine. _________ DONE 2. Go back to your Squidoo and Hub pages and create a new module. In that module you are going to put a link in anchor text to the Wordpress blog you created yesterday. _________ DONE 3. Ping your Squidoo and Hubpage URL and RSS feeds at Pingoat _________ DONE 4.

Submit your Ezine Author RSS feed to the RSS aggregators from day 3. _________ DONE 5. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers, leaving links in 3 answers. _________ DONE Remember to check your click through rates on your articles and your tracking codes at Clickbank to see which landing page is getting the most click through. It is extremely important to know where your traffic is coming from. Check and see if any of your articles have made it to the first page of Google for your keywords. Day 14 1. Write 3 articles around your keywords and submit them to Ezine Articles. _________ DONE 2. Take the second set of articles that were approved and submit them to the Article Directories you signed up for in day 3. __________ DONE 3.

Ping your URL for your Squidoo and Hubpage at Pingoat. __________ DONE 5. Answer 4 questions at Yahoo Answers, leaving links in 3 answers. ___________ DONE Day 15 You have now been putting up content for ten solid days. It's time now to do some research. What you want to do is check Google to find out where your pages are ranking for your keywords. Do you have any articles that are ranking high? Is your Squidoo or Hubpage doing well in the search engines? Which of your landing pages is sending the most hops to your affiliate link? Find out some of these things and then concentrate on moving them up in the search engines. How do you do that? Just by what we have been doing, by building content and links. By now you will probably have reached your limit at Ezine Articles for the number of articles they will let you submit. They will then ask you why they should allow you to become a Platinum author. Here is word for word what I wrote. It got me approved in less than an hour. "I have submitted 10 well researched and written articles. They have all been 100% unique and if given the opportunity to become a platinum member I will continue to submit nothing but well researched and written articles. Thank you for your time and considerations." So after you have done your research and delt with Ezine it's time to get back to work. 1. Write 3 articles around keywords and submit them to Ezine Articles. ___________ DONE 2. Social bookmark articles submitted to directories other than Ezine. ___________ DONE 3. Rewrite 3 articles and make them into posts on your Wordpress Blog. ___________ DONE 4. Ping your Wordpress Blog URL at Pingoat. ___________ DONE 5.

You can create as many as you want here. Submit them to the RSS aggregators from day 3. _________ DONE 5. Answer 5 questions at Yahoo Answers, leaving links in 4 of the answers. __________ DONE Day 19 Another way to get links that we have not done yet is blog commenting and forum marketing. What you want to do is go to Google and type in "your keyword":forum or "your keyword":blog This will bring up lists of blogs and forums you can post your links to. With blogs, make sure you have something decent to say. If you do not, you will get blocked from posting on that person's blog again, just because they know your doing it to get back links. Make sure you leave your link in anchor text for the keywords you are targeting. With forums it is the same. You can put a link to a site that you are promoting in what they call your "signature". Make some contributions to the forum before you even put the link in your signature. Frequent these places when you have some spare time. You would be surprised the traffic you can get from forums and blogs if you represent yourself like an expert on a certain subject. The best part of this method is that it gives you back links to your site or an article you are trying to get moved up in Google. Just remember to use anchor text for the keyword you are targeting.

You must know which of your landing pages is producing the most hops to your affiliate product. Whichever one is getting you the most sales or at least hops that is the one you want to send the majority of the traffic to through your articles. This is extremely important. Do not just do all this blindly. Yes you will get sales but you must learn to maximize the potential of a page as well as bring those which are not performing as well up to par. Day 30 1.

Take A Deep Breath And Congratulate Yourself!!! 7. Now, pick another niche and repeat the process again. However, you are not done with this niche just yet. While you may not have to keep up the schedule above, depending on where you are ranking for your keywords, you now have a lot of content in a lot of different places. The beauty of this process is that you can repeat it over and over and over again. Now you're probably saying to yourself, how the hell am I going to have the time to do all of that with more than one niche? Well I'm about to show you how you can have all of what we just did for the last 26 days (minus keyword search and picking a niche, you always want to do those yourself). Outsourcing At first what you just read may seem like a lot of work, and truth be known it is. But it is going to take work if you really want to make money online. The good news is that there are ways by which you can outsource most of the tasks above, which leaves you time to begin other campaigns. There are three different places that you can go to get people to do most of these tasks for you. They are Odesk.com, Digitalpoint.com and Wickedfire.com. On these three sites you can find people who will do all the social bookmarking, article writing, article rewriting and RSS submissions you will need. You can find people to do these for a one time fee or you can get people that you can pay by the hour. I would suggest doing it yourself for the first campaign at least. This way you get a true understanding of how to do it. If you do it yourself first, you will know how to make sure it is done right when you hire someone to do it for you. This is how the real money is made! You don't think all the big time marketers do everything themselves do you? Trust me they don't. You may also think that this is going to cut into your profits.....well it's not! It will actually multiply them! While you are paying a very small sum for people to do all the "grunt work" that is so time consuming, you are off getting into a new niche to make more money from. Once you get the second niche up and going, you can begin to outsource that one and go on to a third niche. Here is a small breakdown of what I pay for services. I write all my articles myself. I just do not trust someone to write decent articles for me. I know good writers are out there, but to get a good one you are going to pay at least $5.00 for a 250 word article. And truth be known you never know how good they really are until you see their work. By the time you see it, you've already paid for it. When you are paying for 3 articles per day that is $75.00 a week(you cannot submit articles to Ezine Articles on Saturday and Sunday). To me thats more money than I care to spend. So what I do is I pay someone $1.67 per hour to rewrite 10 PRL (private label rights) articles for me. While they are doing that, I write my own 3 articles. Now I have thirteen articles and it only cost me about $3.34. It usually takes her about 2 hours to rewrite the articles. Three in one niche and three in another. This isn't something you have to do. Some people really do not like messing with PRL. If you can really bang out articles, then write them yourself. If you don't mind paying $5.00 an article, then pay for them. This is just how I do it. You will have to find what works best for you. I have a guy I pay $1.11 per hour to submit all my articles to the various directories. Usually takes them about an hour to do it. I then pay someone $1.11 per hour to do social bookmarking and RSS submissions for me. Finally I pay a guy to do nothing but build links to my sites through bookmarking, blog commenting, directory submissions and various other ways. He cost me about $3.50 per hour. All total I pay about $85.00 per week for these services, but the time they save me is priceless. I regularly make enough in one day to pay for the whole week. Very soon you will be able to do the same. While they are taking care of all the tedious tasks that take up the most time, I am busy researching other niches and starting new campaigns. That's the name of the game. You need to get as many streams of income coming in as you can. That is when you really start making money. Follow these steps as I have laid them out for you and you will make money. Then you can start outsourcing and watch your income grow. Another thing you need to figure out is if you want to use free landing pages (like Blogger, Squidoo, Hubpages or Wordpress) or you want to have a site that you own. I personally like to use sites that I own. Why? Because they cannot take it away from me. Not that it happens very often, but what if a site that you have been busy building links to for months suddenly shuts down? Long story short, you will have just lost all the hard work you have done. If you own your site then that cannot happen. Now you're probably thinking that you have no idea on how to build a website. That's ok because I did not either. There is a program called XsitePro that will teach you how to build one in about an hour. You do not need to know html code or anything like that. They walk you through building an actual site the first time you start. From there you have various templates you can upload, or you can build your own fairly easily as well. Now, some of this stuff can be automated and save you a lot of time. You just need to decide if you are willing to spend the money on tools that speed up the process for you. When I first started I did all of this by hand, but as time went on I found myself wanting to go through things faster. Outsourcing is one of those ways, another way is tools such as the ones below that I now use: Magic Article Rewriter SENUKE Unique Article Wizard Article Marketing Automation You don't have to use any of them, I didn't when I first started out. These are things when you're ready for them, you'll know. The last thought I want to leave you with is DO NOT BE AFRAID TO FAIL! Some niches that you pick just are not going to sell very well! It's just the nature of the beast. It's ok if you are testing and write articles for two weeks and never get a sale. If you are getting hops to your account, it just means the product doesn't convert very well! I usually give a product a chance until I get to about 800 hops. If I don't get a sale by then, I just stop promoting it. Or if you want to get creative, you can take the content you already have and build an adsense site with it. But thats a whole different topic. If that happens to you, don't just give up! Just just pick another niche and test it out. The only way you will fail is if you give up and stop trying. At that point there is nothing even the most expensive teacher in the world could teach you. Closing... I hope you've enjoyed reading this ebook. The methods inside it are responsible for taking me from making absolutely nothing to mkd 4 figures a month in just a few months. Yes, there is work involved, but there is no success in anything without effort. I currently run a membership program called The Newbie University that literally lets you learn through over the shoulder video's all the aspects of internet marketing. The course goes through affiliate marketing all the way through product creation and has tons of traffic training. There's a private forum as well and always a few surprises. It's really a one stop shop for those who are new to marketing or struggling. Work hard and follow this workbook and you'll be on your way faster than you would have ever thought possible. I look forward to hearing about your success!
