Journal Contents Post One - Introduction Post Two - CASE STUDY: AQWF, Landing page Post Three - Access to 16 Million Leads for Offline Clients ----------------------------------------------------- Post 1 I've been working online since 2004. Not just playing around with things, but making a living since 2004. I see a lot of journals from beginners. These journals are great because it's like a fan base that you don't want to disappoint. You make a public message that you want to adhere to. Thus, I thought I would make a public message, display what my goal is, and document how I achieve it. I want to go from six figures to seven figures, and I want to do it in one year. ----------------- What I Do.... Naturally like most Internet Marketers in the early stages of my career I had ADHD. Jumping from thing to thing. While everyone tells you to fix that, and that focus is the way to success. I decided not to fight it, and instead to build upon it. All my ideas are good, well, of course they're some stupid ones. However, everything I wanted to jump to had obvious reasons to be successful. So... since I'm only one person... I found others, and built a team that gets whats needed to be done. We have a portfolio of niche sites monetized through AdSense and Affiliate Programs We have a portfolio of our own information products We have a web design/seo firm Who is We? We is my partner, a team of writers, about 3-5 designers (depending on work), and joint ventures. ------------------ What we are doing? Right now we are building a lot of our own offers and products. Using media buys and paid traffic we market our own offers. We are building authority websites, these are larger sites then the typical micro niche website. They are not exact match and instead we build a brand around the site. Say the site was going to be on skateboards, we would do www.findskateboards.com. They have about 15k-30k words on them, and optimized for 100's of keywords, short and long. ------------------ What to expect from this Journal You'll learn about the typical week to week operations, offers we make, and strategies we use. Obviously not them all They will be presented to you as case studies. Ask questions, and I'll try to answer them the best I can. CASE STUDY: AQWF We have a product that we affiliate for that produces around $2,000-$7,000 a month. There is such a spread because when we are in the first position for a competitive keyword we can be looking at a $7,000 month. However, after panda and penguin we float around the 6th position on that big keyword. Our long tail traffic saves some of the traffic, but it nearly triples in #1. In Jan, it made $7,800.... right now it's making around $3,000. It's horrible. The product ranges from $1,000-$2,500 and we receive a 30% commission. To the general public you can only get up to 10% commission, however, because of the results we have had in the past we have been grandfathered into higher percentages. We are building a campaign to push this product as we know it converts and pays well. We operate our business with this equation: TT+RO=$$ Targeted Traffic + Right Offer = Money Signs Most of the time people forget one of these elements either they have T+RO which is just traffic and the right offer, or they have TT+O which is targeted traffic + offer, not the right one. We have found the best ways to get targeted traffic is to manufacture it yourself. The problem is, with so much going on with the Internet now and people becoming more aware you need to build a better trust with them as a user. To build the targeted traffic we use this equation. T+T=TT Landing Page (Target) + Media Buy (Traffic) = Targeted Traffic. Then send that Targeted Traffic to the right offer. For this Case Study, I'm going to show you: - The Landing Page and Funnel - The Banner Ads - The Results - The Profits stay tuned... Hope you enjoyed this.
