Hello, A few days back I watched Anik Singal's 3 hours presentation live on youtube. It was quite inspiring. I've tried IM for years without many success. Between 2011-2015, i've only made $200 with adsense and $45 with CB. Being a father of two baby daughters, and jobless at the moment ( post Rhythm & Hues downfall, I've been jumping from company to company because the companies always did not pay my salary on time ), I survived each month with some freelance job and my wife's salary. It is not the life that I prefer. So I want to take this jobless moment to focus back on IM. I hope you kind hearted IM guys and gals can give me advice along the way. Okay back to Anik, he introduced 2 phase plan for generating income over the Internet. He claims that this is the exact formula that he taught his students. It was called Circle of Profit. If I have the money, I'll immediately invest into one of his courses as he already prepares the tools to begin the IM journey. But his courses were quite expensive, more than $2000. That's a lot for a newbie like me. I have to find the tools myself. I know this formula was very popular and has been used by many IMs. Phase 1 is where you have to promote other person's product by becoming an affiliate. After you have a solid base in Phase 1, you should go into Phase 2 which is producing your own product. This is his plan for Phase 1. It's quite simple actually. 1. Find a CB product. 2. Make a landing page. 2. Get autoresponder. 4. Get targeted traffic He said in order to success in Phase 1, you have to get 300 visitors/subscribers daily. He said it was easy but I doubt it... at least from what I read in the forums. Find a CB Product I follow a guide on this forum on how to pick a good CB product. He suggest that I should contact the product owner and ask for a review copy. From this I know which product is good and should be promoted. I look for a gravity between 20-50, low refund rate and good amount of commission. From the marketplace I click the category one by one and look for a product which meets my requirement. I know there is a search function but I prefer this way. It took me a couple of days to get respond from the product owner and the product it self seems very good and high quality. Make a landing page Around two days of research on finding a good way to make a landing page. It must be good design, easy to setup, can integrate nicely with autoresponder and meet my budget. Initially I want to make a wordpress site with optin plugin. The criteria for the themes and optin plugin: it must be responsive. Which means it will also looks good on mobile platform. I found some free themes which I can easily convert it into a landing page. Then I also found an awesome wordpress plugin for optin, Optin Ninja. Its $28 over codecanyon. Autoresponder There are three autoresponders which I have in mind. Aweber, Mailchimp and Getresponse. I made my research on each autoresponder. Each has its pro and cons. At first I want to go with Getresponse as it also includes page builder to build a good looking landing page! Though, on further reading on their T&C, they limit the visitors to that page up to 1000 visitors per month. If I exceed the limit, I have to pay extra. Bummers. Targeted Traffic This is the hardest part. I've tried many traffic services here on BHW. Although I bought targeted traffic as advertised, it does not convert. This was based on my previous experience on my adsense website. I've heard solo ads but I heard many of them did not deliver. I think I have to go with Adwords but I don't have any experience with that and it can be quite expensive too. Before I dive into Adwords, I plan to make some keyword research on my niche using Market Samurai. I would love to hear your experience with Adwords if you can share. Which one do you suggest, Adwords or solo ads? So, I would like to start this plan if you guys think it is ok. I will keep update so that others can learn something, at least.
