					           What Is Flickr?
I know to some this may seem a little crazy but there are
many people out there who
don’t know what Flickr is, so if you are one of them let me
give you a brief explanation:
Flickr is social-networking website that is built to allow
people to post and share their
own photos. It is the most popular of this category of sites.
According to Alexa, it
reaches approximately 20% of all Internet users and is the
32nd most popular website
on the Internet. Millions use Flickr Search to see if there are
already photos for their
niche. Flickr will link to your website with the photos you
upload. This will help drive
qualified traffic, as well as potential search engine benefits.
Arguably the most popular online photo management and
sharing application on the
Internet today, Flickr has about 1.5 million users and
counting. As for many social media
networks, businesses are quickly realizing the value of such
a dense and active
audience, and like any social media marketing campaign, it
is important for businesses
to not only set up an account with appropriate titles, tags,
and so on, but also to become
active and productive members of the Flickr community,
utilizing the full potential.
By posting quality photos representing your businesses,
products, services, or even
ideas and tagging them according to location, subject, or
key phrase, these photos have
a high potential for appearing in image searches for engines
like Google and Yahoo, not
to mention the possible visibility on actual Flickr searches.
The recent development of
Universal Search has upped the ante yet again by making it
possible for images to
appear in the main organic ranking results. When photos
gain this kind of visibility, they
can begin to greatly impact viral marketing efforts, actual
search engine rankings, and
especially web traffic, which is why so many businesses are
jumping on the Flickr
exchange.
The success of a photo or group of photos depends on many
things, but mostly on the
"interestingness" of the images. Now this may seem
somewhat arbitrary, but I assure
you it is quite the opposite. Flickr has employed an
algorithmic ranking system to rival
the Google bots. An image's interestingness is based on the
number of people who
view it, comment on it, and mark it as a favorite. If those
who mark it as a favorite are
themselves favorites of a host of others, that vote is
weighted more, and thus it is an
ever changed and growing web of users that gradually push
the best material to the top.
Though the Google and Yahoo image searches work on a
similar principle, the results
found on Flickr searches are vastly superior, the image
search experience is becoming
hugely popular.
Now that we have that out of the way, the moment you
have been waiting for! I cut out
all the crap and fluff. I’ll just answer the question you are
thinking about:

“How Can I Make A Fortune Using Flickr?”
Every business needs two things, product/services and
customers/ready buyers. You
may have a product or service but need some ready
motivated buyers. All you need to
do is follow the steps below, it’s pretty simple:
Set-Up A Flickr Account
Before you can use Flickr you must have a Yahoo account.
You can use the one you
currently have but I would advise you to create a new
Yahoo account. To create a new
Yahoo account go here. Once you have signed up go to
Flickr and Sign-Up for a free
account. Now you have created a new Yahoo account. I
recommend using an alias
name.
Example: If your name is Brenda Adams create a yahoo/
Flickr account using
Brenda09 or B_Adams. As you read further you will
understand why.
*** Make sure while your creating your profile you add
your website address. Use your
user name for the description of your site or a short
keyword. This will be displayed in
your profile for your website name.***
I prefer using a user name because it’s more innocent than
placing a long keyword that
will cause people to feel you are marketing something.
When you create your profile, you have an opportunity to
tell the wider community who
you are. You also can setup links to your website(s) and e-
mail. Make sure you choose
or create an icon to represent your niche well. I use what I
call a “Perception Icon” .If my
niche is cleaning, maybe I would find a photo of an
attractive man/ woman who appears
to be cleaning. It gives passer by’s something to wonder
about.
Once your account is set-up you will always have to sign in
to your Yahoo account
whenever signing in to Flickr. Make sure you remember
your yahoo account details.
This is very important.
Finding or Creating Photos
This is one of the most important steps of the entire
process. You need to find pictures
that have something to do with your niche or biz. I’ll give
you an example:
If my niche or business was in health care or fitness, I would
find a photo where maybe
an attractive man or woman has on a doctor’s or nurse’s
uniform that looks like it was
taken at the job or buy their friends or family.
The key here is perception. People who look at this photo
perceive it as natural or
normal looking. However, for me, it’s an attractive person
who will make people take a
second look. Also it has something to do with my niche or
business. You can even take
pictures of yourself doing something related to your niche
or biz, that works well too.
If you don’t have your own photos, here is a list of places
you can go to get stock
images. Many of these are royalty free, which means you
can do what you want with
them. Some you will have to purchase but many of the
photos are only a few cents.

http://www.freedigitalphotos.net (Free Photos)
http://www.istockphoto.com (Cheap Photos)
http://www.canstockphoto.com
http://www.shutterstock.com
It’s bst to always look for the most natural looking pictures,
but there are a few cases
where you will get a picture that looks like a photographer
has taken it. I look mainly for
the pictures you would think someone had taken on a cell
phone or with a regular
camera, they work the best for me. It all depends on your
niche or your business on
what could work for you.
Upload Your Photos
Now that you know how to find and create your photos, it’s
now time to upload them.
Log-in to your Flickr account.
Click on Upload Photos and Videos (located on the right of
screen)
Now you can upload your photos from your computer. It’s
best to have all your photos in
one place so that they are easy to upload and you don’t
have to search all over your
computer’s files or folders to find them.
***You can also download the Flickr Uploader tool to
upload your pictures easily and of
course faster. However, you can upload multiple photos at
once by holding down the
shift key while clicking on the photos you want to
upload.***
Remember: Before you upload your photos, always make
sure your pictures are
available for the public to view. You will see this option
available at the bottom of the
upload page.
Tagging Your Photos
Tagging is basically labeling photos with words and phrases
so that search engines can
determine what the picture is about. That photo your using
for your niche may have a
funny name like “452yt23.jpg”, but when you upload it into
Flickr, you should "tag" it with
the name of your niche or business and keyword your using.
Example: If your niche or business is cooking, once you have
uploaded your photos,
you can tag them by saying, “Cooking good food” or
“Making Food”, assuming you have
photos uploaded as I described earlier.


Get Flickr Backlinks
The importance and job of one-way links, aka,” backlinks”,
is to increase your ranking in
the search engines, which in turn, directly influences your
traffic. Backlinks can be
obtained in various ways and it helps to give your site depth
and strength which in turn
helps your site to rank better in the search engines. Most of
the time where SEO
(Search Engine Optimization) is concerned it will be the site
with the most indexed
pages along with backlinks from relevant sources that will
rank tops.
Flickr receives millions of hits each and every day and as far
as I am concerned, you
never say no if there is a possibility to leverage traffic from
such a powerhouse.
Remember, you will be able to obtain backlinks as well as
get direct visits through your
link.
The first thing you would want to do is perform a search
within Flickr. Use your niche
and website's targeted keywords. Once you find photo's
that comply with your search
then you need to comment on those pictures. Try staying
within the relevant field of your
niche and leave comments such as, "wow, great pic, or “is it
possible that I could use
this photo on my site" and then drop your link. This way
you will be scoring a backlink
plus you'll be getting curious clickthroughs.
Be smart and DO NOT spam! Stay in your niche and you'll be
well rewarded!
Join Every Group You Can
Now you need to join a group….. this is easy! Find a group
pertaining to your niche and
ask to join. Some of these groups will tell you a group
administrator will have to approve
you, but I normally don’t ask to join those types of groups.
Click on the group tab in the menu bar. Now type the name
of your niche into the group
search bar. You will see all types of groups pertaining to
your niche.
Start joining all these groups. After you join a group you
need to add photos to that
particular group.
There are over 14,000 groups on Flickr. You an join as many
of these groups that you
want. Its all about how creative you can get with your
photos.
Don’t add more than 2 or 3 photos at a time unless you
have more than 15 photos
uploaded. Some groups will only allow you to add 1 to 6
photos per day.
I said I would make this simple for you. I hope you
understand the basics of working
Flickr.
Using Flickr For Affiliate Marketing:
Link each photo to your affiliate id. You can use this
method, but it is risky. Take a look
below at this. I will give you an idea of how you could use
Flickr for your affiliate
marketing projects.
A Likely Way Of Making Money, Affiliate Marketing
With the help of investment in good education and open
minded imagination, you can start your online empire now.
There are
many factors that come into play in promoting your
website. It will be a stress to do all the work and get profit
as "One Man
Army" Then affiliate marketing uncovers the possible way.
Internet Business and affiliate programs are the easiest
business
models and this is why many new entrepreneurs begin with
these programs.
In affiliate marketing, it is recommended to get trained in
order to fetch success. In case if you are a new one to
internet
marketing or any other online business, you might not be
having sufficient stuffs about promoting or marketing the
products.
It is important to search for independent trainers who can
teach you how to sell virtually anything, as most website
owners do
not offer affiliate training. You may have to do some
research in order to find the best one as there are many
individuals.
Discovering a Trainer
It is worthwhile to research some form of training before
starting with any online business. There are some very good
training
programs but equally some not so good affiliate training
programs.
If you are very interested and the one who have taken
affiliate marketing very seriously, you will need to do some
research on
specific products. But make sure that you are doing your
business via the right Affiliate Program.
The Benefits
There are many unbelievable benefits in undertaking
affiliate marketing training. You must, however keep up-to-
date with
online business trends and be ready to adapt to changes
that happen.
Since there is a gradual increase in affiliate marketers there
is a lot of competition online, however there are various
ways to
dominate those markets and make money. You will find out
about the relevant methods from experts in affiliate
training
programs.
When undertake the right affiliate programs there will be
no limits on your income but your earnings will be the result
of
undertaking a good affiliate training program.
Targeted traffic is directed to your website, it can contribute
numerous inbound links, and it could augment your sales in
no
time. This puts you in the business frame of mind. When
you get trained, you tend to have a more business like
attitude
towards that thing, no matter what it is.
If you get the support from the experienced fellows, you
can become successful online. But, again it depends upon
the
techniques you use and the mistakes that you don't make.
This pitch was placed into the description of the photo. You
would think it’s just a photo
until you click on it and start to read the description that
has an unsuspected link to the
affiliate program placed in the text. Here is the Flickr
homepage, take a look. I got some
really good ideas after viewing it.

No Website, No Problem
If you don’t have a website and want to know how you can
make money with flickr then
get signed up as an affiliate here:
Clickbank
Start a blog. You can start a blog absolutely free. You can
join:
Blogger
Wordpress
Blog
Live Journal
Vox
Most of these blogs will allow you to post links and pictures.
What I have done in the
past is create 3 or 4 blogs about my affiliate products and
my niches. You can make a
nice income with PPC or CPA using blogs and never have too
worry about paying for
hosting.
The Flickr Fortune Strategy:
Upload at least 20 photos to your Flickr account. I would
advise you to do at least 40 to
get it going a lot sooner. Join all the groups pertaining to
your niche.
I told you earlier I use attractive photos of men/woman.
Here is why:
When joining these groups associated with your niche ,if
your niche is “Cooking” and
you add a photo of a cake or meal you cook, that’s fine but
what if you could tap into
every group on flickr by adding a photo to the group?
Well, let me tell you, your traffic would explode through the
roof. Fortunately for you,
your photos have people in them. You now can virtually join
every group on flickr and
your photos are still relevant to your niche.
Example: If “Health and Fitness” is your niche, you could
have a photo of a guy lifting
weights or a woman working out in a bikini. Now you can
join all the fitness groups and
the groups “Pretty Women”, “Women in Swim Suits” and
“Men Bodies” or “Cut Men
Faces”. This works for virtually every niche.
You have all the groups you need now. The next thing you
need to do is add 2 or 3
photos to every group you’re a member of.
On Flickr so many people are adding photos to groups
around the clock. I have a
strategy I use to keep traffic and ready buyers coming to me
all day long.
Let’s say I’ve joined 50 groups. Now I am going to add
photos to each of these groups
2 times a day, everyday for a few weeks or a month at the
longest, depending on the
traffic and views I am getting. On Flickr, once you post a
photo, you are the number one
photo in that group’s homepage. Similar to Google, the
number one page gets most of
the traffic. Well, the difference with Flickr is, if you fall out
the top 6 to 12 photos, you
are not seen by most visitors because most people don’t
take time to search through
these groups.
If you are in a group with 20,000 members, within a few
minutes you could be gone off
of the front page. If you max out your photos allowed per
day then your stuck until the
next day. Also, if you add 20 photos to one group because it
allows you to, then you
have to get more photos just to add to that one group.
That’s why I say you should add
only 2 or 3 photos when posting to a group .I like using
attractive pictures because people and many group
administrators will askyou for your permission to use your
photo for their group. Many administrators have kept my
photos on their front page for weeks, and if that group has
5 or 10 thousand
members then you could really see a spike in your traffic,
sales and conversions.
I stated earlier that it’s important to use a name and not a
description if you’re going to
use this method. The reason why is most people will have
the perception you are a
person and not a business trying to market a product or
service. Once again, it’s all
about perception. Your traffic and buyers are seeing things
not as they are, but as they
could be.
The best part of using this method is that you will be getting
targeted traffic and the
overflow of traffic that surprisingly enough, can and will
buy. You could generate a huge
list with this method, sales and repeat buyers.
I previously used this method to take a site unranked in
Google and with Alexa it had
ranking of 22million. Less than 10 days later using this
method, I was ranked number #
3 in Google and had an Alexa rank of 1million worldwide
and a US traffic ranking of less
than 350k. I also had 2 photos that were on Google’s main
page for my keyword. Don’t
take my word for it, use this method and if see for yourself.
You can also post comments on photos for more traffic and
backlinks but be careful
using this method. Only post relevant comments on photos.
Flickr is a world of its own
and if you use your imagination you can give Google the
finger and still have a
profitable business. Go ahead and take advantage of the
Flickr Fortune Methods now!
This method will work for any off the following:
Affiliate Marketing
Personal Websites
Landing Page
Opt-Ins
PPC
CPA
Sexy Secrets Of Flikr
Please understand that this may offend some people so
stop reading if you think you
may be offended…However, if you continue, I told you all
through this course that
“Perception” is the key to making a fortune on Flikr.
I’ll get right to it, “Sex Sells” Period! It maximizes your
results if you have attractive
people in photos in some sort of way, dealing with the niche
you are involved in. You
will get traffic and make money. No, I did not say nude or X-
rated because I don’t use
and will not use that method to get traffic or sales.
However, the perception of sexy and using human
attraction is OK in my book. It has
sent massive amounts of people to my business. If you have
a product that people
need, no matter what they were looking for originally, if
they need your product or
service they will become buyers, period.
I use this sexy secret on flickr with all niches but it works
better with some than others
when it comes to conversions. In my research, this method
can work great in the
following niches and businesses.
Relationships
Dating
Marriage
Cooking
Health/Fitness
Cleaning
Pets
Beauty
Sports
Vehicles
Travel


Niche Ideas:
Travel Niche: Do a site about the beaches of the world. Find
the most attractive men
and women you can find in bathing suits. Post their photos
on Flickr (you will find more
than enough groups for that) and drive ready buyers to your
site.
WorldsBeaches.com
BeachInMexico.com
Beach-In-Mexico.com
115 million searches on Google for Beach In Mexico .
Thanks for reading and I hope you get started using these
methods A.S.A.P
PLEASE READ!!!
It is important to create at least two accounts in case your
Flickr account is flagged. I have only
had one account flagged since I have been doing this. I had
to call yahoo and answer a few
questions and it was restored immediately. It is important
to create multiple accounts and never
use your personal email account because if someone in
Flickr flags your account it will close
your email account also. You don’t even want to take that
chance even though this method is
within Flickrs guide lines. Follow all group rules so you don’t
get flagged for any reason.




                 Enjoy earning
