So many people make $100 dollars a day and think that’s the best. Nope Mister. It’s just proof that your method works. You could be making much more than that.
First and foremost, I HIGHLY recommend that you completely understand the basic machinery that creates all those $100 dollar best days you’ve had and identify the most gruelling of the tasks involved. When this has been done, it’s as easy as ABC recreating the process and earning a lot more income in a shorter period. And what would enable this? Simply outsource those most gruelling of tasks involved in your workflow.
Why do you have to make a map of this process? Because it’s always very, very helpful to have at least a cursory grasp on what goes into each step of the process, from research to outlining to completion.
Believe it or not, it can be more difficult than it seems at first glance. These components might range from product creation, graphics design, search engine optimization to customer support.
If your most gruelling of tasks centers on product creation, the first place that I would recommend that you look for freelance writers is the Warriors For Hire section.
Just realize that even on the Warrior Forum, some unscrupulous people still slip through the cracks unnoticed so pay very special attention to reviews and request samples. Perhaps most importantly, start small. Don’t hand someone that you’ve never worked with a huge order off the back. Perhaps let them write a chapter or two for your first and see how that goes.
Take note of their consistency, their timeliness, and their overall communication with you throughout the process.
Don’t pay 100% upfront, either. Pay 50% upfront and 50% upon completion. If they balk at this payment method (it’s pretty standard) then walk away.
Other places to find writers and virtual workers:
A few words about some of these sites:
Fiverr.com has seen an explosion of popularity these days. Whether it’s deserved or not, remains to be seen in my opinion.
In my experience, for every one good service provider I’ve found here, I’ve come across four that either delivered awful results, delivered mediocre results late, or delivered no results at all.
But I still listed Fiverr because it can come in handy in a pinch. Just be aware that way more often than not, you get what you pay for.
It’s definitely a place where you have to pick and choose what’s good and what isn’t. The one consistently good thing about it is that you only spend 5 bucks to weed out a loser.
If you’re not familiar with Reddit, it is a very large, yet still somewhat tight-knit community. A large part of the Reddit community is comprised of extremely tech-savvy people such as graphic designers, programmers, etc. and many of them are feeling the crunch of the recession, as is evident in the subreddit I’ve listed.
That means that you can find quite a few people that are more than willing to take on freelance work (not just writing!) for a good price.
I have decided to snipe out this strategy from my mastermind group traffic experiments tutorials.
It is fourth in the series and I’m hoping you could put this to work because it flat-out beats most of the free traffic strategies cluttering up the blogosphere. This nanoarbitrage strategy is to utilize Automatic WordPress Trackbacks.
Do you ever see comments on certain websites like this:
Actually, websites using CommentLuv have this feature. Well, links like these are called Trackbacks. It is an automated way of alerting another blog that you have linked to one of their posts. When you do this, wordpress automatically pings the other blog, no matter how popular it is, notifying them of the incoming link. They provide a free real estate to drive lots of traffic from very popular websites to your site, as your headline is automatically displayed in the comments section, drawing readers away to your site.
Now, I’ll be teaching you how to exploit this wordpress feature to makemore money from more traffic. Simply locate most popular blogs in
your niche that use CommentLuv. Any site that allows trackback
comments would work with this. Usually CommentLuv blogs are great.
Just type the following in google search engine box;
Your Keyword & “title=”CommentLuv Enabled””
The above command will find commentluv enabled sites within the your
specified niche. Alternatively, you can also try the following command
in google search;
“intext:”CommentLuv Enabled” +keyword”
This is a great quick way of finding commentluv sites and works good.
You could however use Commentluv’s own search engine to help you
identify more of them faster.
Use comluv or commentluv directly to search commentluv enabled
blogs. This is probably the fastest and more accurate way to search
commentluv enabled blogs in your niche. Just go to http://comluv.com/help-desk/ and find the commentluv enabled blogs search engine. You can easily notice it on the right side. Simply enter the search keyword e.g. niche of the blog you may like to search for and you
are good to go.
Having identified your top-niche blogs, you’d be on the lookout for new posts. You can subscribe to the rss feeds of these sites and be instantly notified of new posts as they become available.
Now put up a good presell article on YOUR OWN wordpress blog, with
a very strong headline because no matter how short or long your
comment is, this is the same exact headline people will see on your
comment. Hyped-up headlines work like magic. Result-based headlines
are terrific. Those in the line of ‘See how I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks’ drive crazy clickthroughs. Then go over to the blog and make a great comment. Once the site’s readers see your comment, they will see a trackback to your site and if you have used a very attractive headline on your own presell page, you’ll get hundreds of clicks to your website.
Now find other sites in this same niche using this feature and see if you will not grab more traffic than you thought possible. The trick here is to use a headline closely related to that of the topic being discussed.
The difference between the trackback strategy and the previous ones is
that you don’t even need to put your link yourself. It all appears
automatically once your comment sticks.
*NOTE: Sign up for google alerts for your niche and every time a new
post is put up you’ll get an email notification. The next step is to race over to their site and reply with a comment. Then your ad is near the top and will be seen by more people!
List building has been the key to my success over the years and I have a lot of people to thank for that, but I mostly have to thank myself because I’ve gone out of my way to explore all of these realms of list building. I still enjoy the multiplier effect of having more than 500 eyeballs almost instantly on my new blog posts just because I sent a quick blast to my list notifying them of something new. That’s how easy it is.
So I get to enjoy the thrill of fast traffic as well as the great affiliate commissions I see whenever I promote to this list.But get one thing clear, my blog wasn’t the only machine for my list.
The first thing you need to know is that business and making sales depends on fresh lead flow. What I mean is you want constant leads coming in. If I were you, I would start aiming to generate something like 250 subscribers per day. You might be thinking, that’s a lot of subscribers, or it’s going to be too expensive.
Well, apart from the ones you can build from your blogging, there are great paid lead sources. If you have some little funds to invest into your blogging and listbuilding effort, I’ll advise you to concentrate on these paid lead sources. However, there are also very good free ones that you can use to build up your list to generate 250 or more subscribers per day.
Once you hit 250 subscribers per day or more, then it’s all a matter of focusing on converting them and then just doing the list building stuff you’re doing over and over and over and getting the same results all the time.
Converting them is another thing and this article isn’t going to be anything at all about converting leads into sales, it’s all about generating lead flow.
Building Up Your Squeeze Page
O.K. we are going to have to have a way for people to get onto our list. We need a good Squeeze Page. I did my first one with this bit of software. Point and click squeeze page. It does a great job and it is less than $10.00 if I remember correctly.
Squeeze page conversions / The freebie.
To get people to sign up for your list you are going to have to give them something of great value for free. If you don’t want to make your own little eBooks or video with a secret you can simply by some PLR (Private Label Rights) Products. With PLR you can edit the content, insert your own personality, and claim author ship.
OK here is where the job killing cash comes from.
When you have an opt-in you have them redirected to a thank you page. On the TYP you tell them how really great you are to have them on your list. Tell them their download is on the way to there in box.
Sell them something related to the freebee from your thank you page. This will recoup some or all of your cost from the solo ad.You could recommend a product from any of the affiliate directories such as clickbank or paydotcom. If you’re targeting the IM niche then you’ll do well to promote products from warriorplus or jvzoo. On the other hand, you can as well sell your own product for $7 to $17 bucks. The most important thing is to get started.
You could sell some of the PLR I told you about earlier; ad a PayPal buy button to the sales page provided, and you have self-liquidating (free) traffic. HOW COOL IS THAT!
You build a massive list very cheap or free. Be good to your list and you gain your freedom from the soul sucking day job in no time!
