An Overview Of the Strategy That Made Me $82,030.27 In A Year


Most people over complicate their online business and it doesn't have to be that way. The secret is to test a market fast with other people's products. If the market is responsive and you make sales, then it's time to expand with your own product, a membership site, bigger websites, blogs, social pages, etc.

I have seen many people build out huge websites only to make a few dollars a day. This is unacceptable in today's age, because the internet has allowed us to deal with a global market. With the right research you could access hundreds, if not thousands of buyers in a few days. This is a very exciting business!

There are 3 simple steps to my online strategy:

    • Step 1 – Research – What are people buying now and have a monthly subscription to? Magazines. If there is a magazine in the niche you are interested in, there is the potential for you to sell an online membership to people with the same interest.
    • Step 2 – Build a List of People Interested in the Niche – Find out where the people in your niche are hanging out online… Facebook, forums, blogs, eBay, etc. A strategically placed post, signature link, comment, advert on those sites will get those readers to your optin page. This is where you offer something for free, in return for allowing you to send them emails about other useful information on the subject.
    • Step 3 – Email Market To Your List – once people are on your list (autoresponder) you can then market to them. But, be careful! If you try and sell hard, your subscribers will report you as a spammer and you will suffer the consequences.

Treat your subscribers as your best friends. Give them content that they will love, stuff that will help them out, and only every now and again mention an offer. There is a strategy to this, that I will explain in great detail in future lessons.

This is a quick and easy way to test a market and is so simple and quick to set up. All it involves is a one page website with an autoresponder.

This entire process can be researched and setup in a day. You can then test your subscriber responses with affiliate products.

Affiliate products are other people's products that you can sell for a commission.

If you get a good response selling affiliate products, this is a good sign that you should progress to the next stage of building a membership site. More on that later…
