Here is a fool proof method for NEWBIES ONLY It requires zero budget, just some time and finesse. It's broken down into 2 parts. The product phase and the marketing phase.. simple. The product phase is all about where you are going to send your traffic to, and monetizing that destination. For this example we are going to keep things simple and go the affiliate route; choosing Clickbank as our network. If you don't have a Clickbank account already, then you need to create one. This will also work for any other network. When you are fully logged in to your Clickbank account you need to go to the marketplace. Now you need to decide on a niche. In order to save you time, you should just click the search button without typing anything in the search field. This will pull up all of the available products. I want you to sort them by average dollar per sale, ensure the "high to low" radio button is selected, and slide your gravity filter to at least 30. Now you have a list of products you can't fail with. Not only do you need to pick a product that will resonate with your target audience, but you also need to view the product landing page before you drive traffic to it. You need to ask yourself "If I were interested in this niche, would I be interested in this product?" Great, so you picked one. :AY ATTENTION:: Now you need to decide.. are you trying to make as much money as you can in the long run, or are you trying to make as much money as you can before rent next month. The reason being is you will either make your main goal to create a mailing list or drive traffic directly to the seller's landing page, respectively. For option 1 you want to create an account with mailchimp (any mail client will do) and create a signup form. Then drive traffic to your signup form. Schedule PLAIN TEXT emails to be sent out via their autoresponders, and setup your autoresponders to mail out Clickbank (or any other network's) offers on autopilot once a week. For option 2 you're just going to send traffic directly to your hoplinks. Click "promote" on a product you want to market, and your HopBox will popup. You need to copy each of these two links into a new notepad and save it to your desktop. The top URL is just the raw link. You can shorten it with bitly or google shortener to make it look pretty, and that will also give you some easy statistics. The bottom URL is the HTML code to make a clickable link that reads "Click Here!" Now between these two options you either have a signup form link to promote, or the direct HopLink to promote. *Note - your signup form will work best if you incentive-ize it with a free eBook, and host it on an article page, or a Wordpress dot com page. Make sure you chuck your autoresponders full of offers that are relative to the same niche. Finally, understand that whether you use a landing page or a squeeze page it's going to have a bounce rate... so you will lose potential sells, but you will gain long time customers. *Note - if you do incentive-ize your mailing list with an eBook you wrote, don't forget to write about products that include your links. Now let's move on to the marketing phase.. this is the fun part. You want to take your link and plaster it all over the place yes, but you want to be strategic about this. You want to target people who would be interested if you can, and you want to provide useful information when you do spam it. So let's get started by manually sniping blog comments. You want to head on over to SEO purgatory or more commonly known as Google, and search for blogs relative to your niche that will allow you to comment. Type in something like this: "make money online" blog "comment" Most of these blogs will have a place for you to comment where you can include your link.. but there aren't many here you will be commenting on. You're just looking for the blogs that list their comments in reverse chronologically. Look at the dates in the comments, are newer comments showing up at the top? Also, look for blogs that will allow you to comment on the top comments as a sub comment. This will ensure that your comment is seen by anyone who reads the top couple comments. Make sure that your comment is relevant and helpful, that way people don't realize you're trying to take their money. When you you're bored to tears of that, you need to filter your search to blog posts that were just posted within the last 24 hours, so you can do it a lot more. Here it doesn't matter if the blog lists its comments in reverse chronologically because your comment will be on the top probably no matter what. Click the tools button under your search, set the time to within the last 24 hours, and sort them by date. Now keep posting comments with your link embedded until your fingers bleed. Don't forget to check for any blogs you missed under the past week, then year! After recovering from carpal tunnel you can take a break from sniping and move on to branding. Branding is taking content such as gifs, pictures of quotes and funny stuff, videos, porn, whatever and putting your url on it. Anything will do, but if you can find content that is relative to your niche then the people who visit your url will be that much more targeted. So if you're doing the "make money online niche" then find empowering quotes about money and success, brand them like your own, and plaster the internet with your plagiarized genius. Now you want to be sure to save ALL the content you've branded in a folder so you can use it as ammo moving forward. *Note - if you're going to be branding content that results in cold traffic, which is fine, then make sure you buffer to an article you've written somewhere that sells the product, or sells the mailing list. For instance if you brand some porn with a bitly link and some dude looks up your site with his dick in his hand, ya know.. cuz he was jackin it, then you need to think about that. Create a free wordpress page or hub article that says "Hey dude! Tired of beatin your meat alone because you can't afford a girlfriend? So was I.. Enter your email below and I'll show you how to quit your job." .. or something to that affect. You need to be smart when branding content. You have to make the branding small but noticeable. If you watermark the whole image or video all over the content, then no one will want to share it, or view it, or visit the site. Now that you have a whole folder of branded content, it's time to start uploading it. Download youtube videos and re-upload them with your branding. Upload pictures to imgur and reddit. Anywhere you can think of. There isn't really a method to this, just brand some quality content that has something to do with your niche then re-upload it where people will see it. Cake Now that your carpal tunnel is fading and your typing wounds are healing it's time to open them back up with some article marketing. Go out and guest blog / write articles anywhere that will let you. I'm not going to hold your hand on this part because you need to do some thinking on your own. Just search alternatives to HubPages. Find ways to sneak your link in, or make it appropriate, or even make it an article reviewing the product. It honestly doesn't even matter if you write a kickass article leading up to the link and the link takes them to a buffer page that says "Wait! Do you like making money? I fucking thought so. Enter your email below." - I wouldn't advise this, but if you're running out of places to post (you won't) then you can start posting in areas where your links would be considered spam. Guest blogging can be done by contacting a blog owner and telling them how much you like their blog, and asking if you can make a guest post. There are so many people out there that will say yes without even asking if you have your own blog. Think about how many amateurs own blogs. You get a post on their blog, it has a link to your buffer page, your buffer page has a link to your product. Now since I'm using the term buffer page more often, I suppose it would be a good idea to explain it a bit more so you can effectively add it to your arsenal. Think of a buffer page as a page, on the internet, where people view it from their computers, that is 99% sure to send a visitor to your landing/squeeze page. For instance, you get a guest post on buttfuckersdelightdottumblr you write a post about how much you love armadillos that has a link to a free wordpress dot com page about armadillos THAT YOU MADE. The prospect who saw your article on BFDtumblr goes on reading about armadillos, sees the link on the guest post where he can read even more about armadillos, clicks the wordpress armadillo page THAT YOU MADE, goes on reading about armadillos all willy nilly til he's blue in the face, when all of the sudden he comes across bitly/armadilloloves ... let me ease the suspense, billy clicks the link. Now, the skill comes in the way you line everything up.. if you can make it all niche relative, then you win. Billy's reading a guest post you made on a blog about making money online, sees a link to a wordpress page about the 10 most effective tools to making money online, and guess what tool sits in place number 1.. your product. Suck it billy Alright so if you aren't fucking sick of typing right now, then you're not going to pay rent by next month I'll tell you that. Making money online is amazing, no one said it wasn't hard work. Take a break and do some easy stuff like spamming youtube comments relative to your niche. But when you're done doing that, it's time to start budget-less SMM. Social Media Marketing is a rather quick way to generate a lot of traffic. We're going to start with the most heinous, easiest, and probably the most effective form of SMM.. Facebook sniping. This involves combing through groups and pages looking for posts that are getting a lot of engagement but not a lot of comments. Drop in some relevant gibberish and then your link to either your buffer page or your mailing list.. or directly to your product. Don't forget you have entire folder full of branded memes and bullshit as well. Now you want to begin some real SMM and download NinjaBlaster which is free for the first month. This little handy tool will allow you to join/unjoin post and bump posts to groups relative to your niche.. or not relative at all, who gives a shit. Not every single unique can be targeted. So at this point you need to begin thinking on your own... Do I need a buffer? Will some branded material come in handy? Should I post something helpful? Or should I just spam my link and move on? At some point your going to understand enough to make your own decisions. At some point your going to have to do your own research. At some point your going to have to do your own thinking. Ninjablaster is a pretty easy tool to figure out but we're going to be covering some more free ones and I'm not doing a tutorial on each one buddy sorry. Let's keep moving. Have your NinjaBlaster posting to any kinds of groups (preferably niche relative) on autopilot with something that is preferably helpful to the group, but when you're mass marketing you really just have to do a combination between selling, clickbaiting, and seeming helpful/genuine. While that's running you need to setup some twitter accounts and instagram accounts. You can PVA (Phone Verify) Twitter accounts with GV (Google Voice) numbers all day.. 10 or 15 accounts per GV# and 1 GV# per gmail account so that's pretty easy. Idk the method for Instagram to be honest. You can make a few on your phone and a few on your computer. Then you can get bluestacks on your computer, which is a virtual android phone, download the Instagram app and make a few more on there.. then there's a way to scramble the device ID on bluestacks so you can potentially hand craft unlimited IG accounts, but you'll have to search around for the method. Anyways, now you got a bunch of Twitter accounts and Instagram accounts. Let's start with IG. Load them up in Instagress (automation software). They'll give you 3 free days for each account you load in. Now you need to decide if you're going to grow those accounts or straight up spam with them. If you're going to grow your accounts I suggest this: put a link to your main IG account in the bio of each of your sub IG accounts. Then in your main IG account put a link to your buffer or product in your bio. If you're just going to straight up spam then just put a direct link to your product in each bio. Now gear up your settings to follow/unfollow and engage on niche relative content. Their settings are pretty self explanatory. Have each account auto comment on niche relevant content to checkout your bios. On to Twitter. Go download Twitter Money Bot free edition. Load up your Twitter accounts. You can manually scrape some free proxies but this will work without them if need be. *Note- Make sure you upload your twitter accounts to your mobile Twitter app so when they get tempblocked you can just pull them up in-app and request a PVA. Make sure you put your mock gmail accounts (the ones you used to make GV#s) on your smartphone so when one of you Twitter accounts gets blocked, the requested PVA will come straight to your phone. Research some popular accounts in your niche, then set TMB to auto follow 1000 of their followers a day. Decide whether you're spamming or growing a couple accounts and use the same bio methods as IG. Use TweetDeck to broadcast tweets across all accounts, and IFTTT to fuel the accounts with genuine content automatically. (i.e. RSS feeds from niche relevant blogs straight to your Twitter accounts.) After a few days nuke every account that didn't follow you back by using the Koray Gocmen Twitter unfollowing Chrome addon. (google unfollower Kray Gocmen) When you have unfollowed most of them, use unfollowerstats(dotcom)com to unfollow the rest. Rinse and repeat. *Note - if you ever need to purge all your tweets on an account, say your marketing a new product, use tweetdelete(dot)net/index(dot)php for free. Finally it's time to do some forum marketing. You can't bullshit people here. You have to join forums (including reddit) with the intention on actually contributing some valuable material. Make some accounts in niche relevant forums, make some friends, share your content. Now call it a day.
