Step 1 - Visit internet marketing forum(s) (you should know the main cash cow by now, but I won't name it) Step 2 - Pay attention and learn what the hottest topics are (try to identify a reoccurring problem if possible) Step 3 - Learn as much as you can about at least one of these topics (doesn't have to be a money making method per se, it can be like SEO, how to set up an autoblog, etc) Step 4 - Join Internet Marketing Forum(s) that you identified in step 1 Step 5 - Become involved in the forum, post (especially in threads about the topic that you are now an expert in) and interact with others Step 6 - Write a 10,000 word e-book on the topic Step 7 - Write sales copy for the ad you're going to place on the internet marketing forums (learning as much as you can about the fine art of copywriting will go a loooooooooonnnnnnnnng way in your success) Step 8 - Sell your e-book Step 9 - Repeat process again and again, leveraging your success into bigger and bigger paydays (it helps if you build a list of these buyers so you can send out a blast when your new products go on sale, with a link to where the ad is... it's super easy to sell to someone that's already bought from you and loves your stuff) If you have any idea at all as to what is going on in the world of internet marketing and these forums, then you should be able to make a couple grand in a few days with this method. I've done it many times, and I'm sure a lot of other people here have too. I can write a 10,000 word e-book and the copy for it in under a day, your mileage may vary, and of course there is no guarantee (even though you pretty much have to be totally clueless for it not to work). We all know that the average person that reads this post is just going to think "eh, it might work", think about it for a day or two and then move on to the next shiny object. No action equals no results. Don't be average. Average people rarely achieve great success. For added effect, buddy up with the established forum "experts/gurus" in the niche you chose and try to leverage that. (Send them free review copies, buy their products and tell them how great they are, etc... you know the deal) Social proof also goes a long way, so if you can master that you'll be in excellent shape in no time. You can use the money that you earn from pimpin' internet marketing forums to invest in other projects, use it to buy some established sites with monthly income streams, etc. Or, you could just make a career out of pimping internet marketing forums (build that list baby!). Oh, and I forgot... put out a product that's halfway decent. Obviously if you can wow them, that would be ideal, but you can still make a decent amount of money with products that are just slightly better than the next guy's products. (Super hint: See what else is already selling like hotcakes and ride the coat tails of those products. Usually when someone puts out a really popular product, everyone gets all excited about that particular topic and they start devouring anything they can get their credit cards on... this is where you capitalize.) ElusiveHat's six word summary: Fake it til you make it. Oh, and it's ok if you fall flat on your face the first time(s). Learn from your mistakes, create a new pen name and try again! Just be cool with people, don't rip anyone off and believe in yourself.
