How to Make a Lot of Fast and Easy Money on the Internet for Free

There are four basic steps in making a lot of fast and easy money on the internet for free. Four steps that you can easily replicate and make a quick buck here and there online and you don’t even need to have your own website.

Note: Do yourself a favor and bookmark this page for your quick reference

Tip: Highly recommended 5th step near the end of this post.

Disclaimer: Results may vary.

Step 1. Choose a Product to Sell

This can be your own product or someone else’s product. It can be a physical product, a digital product (software, ebooks, etc) or a service. Most beginner’s (myself included way back then) opt to sell someone else’s product because it’s there’s just a lot less headache to deal with.

There are tons of sellers online who are looking for “affiliates” to sell their products for them and the best place in my opinion to look for these “affiliate products” is ClickBank. It won’t cost you a penny and signup is pretty fast. They have a huge marketplace of products that you can choose. The best part is that a lot of sellers offer from 50% to 75% commission. Now that’s money!

Do it now, choose your Product:

Step 2. Create a Valuable Giveaway

Selling online is a bit more challenging than traditional face-to-face selling because your target customers don’t actually see you. This means you must have a way to gain their trust and what better way than to give something of value for free?

A couple of things to think about for your free give-away

  1. It must be of real useable relevant value
  2. It must be related to the product you’re selling

The most common and still most effective giveaway is a free eBook. You can write the eBook yourself (8-10 pages is common) or you can have someone do it for you. If you do it yourself or if you know someone with some writing skills who can do it for you, then you’re good to go.

If not, then don’t worry because there’s a bunch of people who’d be willing to create an eBook for you starting at $5.

Do it now, create your freebie:

  • Spend a couple of hours creating your eBook. (Tip it doesn’t have to be perfect)
  • If you don’t have the time or skills, then go and visit Fiverr and have someone else do it for you for as low as $5.

Step 3. Setup Your Automated Freebie Delivery and Sales Machine

Now, this step is crucial. In the world of online sales, capturing your target customer’s email address is very very important. It’s your only point of contact after you give your stuff for free and it’s how you are going to get in touch with them again to sell the product that you’re offering.

This is where you’ll deliver your freebie as an email attachment and also sell your product.

You do this by using an autoresponder service like Mailerlite. Once you have your free account with Mailerlite, you can start adding email messages that automatically gets sent out to those who downloaded your freebie at certain intervals that you specify. It is in these emails that you do the actual selling. Think of it as your personal follow-up assistant.

Confused? Don’t worry, Mailerlite provides easy to follow instructions on how to use their system. It’s very user-friendly.

I usually create three email messages that I once a day right after my target customer signs up to download my freebie.

Email #1 – Delivery of Freebie (as an email attachment) + Short paragraph about the product I’m selling

Email #2 – Features and Benefits of the product I’m selling

Email #3 – Last Call follow-up and/or Straight to the point “You have to really buy this” email

Then, you’ll have to create a “landing page” using Mailerlite’s easy to use drag and drop system. Your landing page should be about your freebie. Again, Mailerlite’s got a great tutorial about this.

Do it now, setup your sales machine:

Step 4. Promote your Landing Page

This is your final step and this is where you’d be focusing your energy at least an hour a day. At this point, you already have a product to sell, a free giveaway, and a system to deliver your freebie and sell your product automatically. All you need to do now is to get the word out.

You have to enjoy this part and let those creative juices come out. The trick is to NOT promote your product. Instead, promote your free giveaway. People like free stuff. All you need to do is share the link of the freebie landing page that you created in Mailerlite. Share it on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, emails, etc.

All you have to do is to get the word out consistently to more people every single day and soon enough you’ll start seeing money pouring in.
 

Highly Recommended 5th Step

Don’t you wish everything could be easier?

Here’s the truth, anybody can really make a lot of fast and easy money on the internet for free but it’s not as easy as many people think. This is why the best ones hire consultants to avoid wasting time doing trial and error. Hiring a consultant can be expensive but there’s another way – a free way to learn from the pros.

What am I talking about here? Well, I’m talking about Affilorama.

Affilorama is the largest affiliate marketing community and training website on the internet. They’re practically here to help you kiss your day job goodbye!

The Math of Making $10,000 a Month

How simple could it be to make $10,000 a month?

I once read that making money is all about the numbers and following this principle, the idea of making any amount of money daily, weekly, monthly or yearly becomes a simple thing. It’s all about math (kudos goes to all the math teachers out there).

Let’s start with the goal of making $10,000 monthly.

$10,000 is equal to:

  • 5,000 two dollar sales
  • or 1,000 ten dollar sales
  • or 500 twenty dollar sales
  • or 100 one hundred dollar sales
  • or 10 one thousand dollar sales
  • or 1 ten thousand dollar sale

No, I’m not trying to make you look dumb. Fact is, it really is that simple and it works. But why does it work?

People tend to look at the big number and most will back out because a big number is often hard to achieve. The trick therefore is to break down the big number into smaller chunks making it more manageable. Now that we’ve broken down the big number into smaller numbers, the next step is to think of a product or a service that will match our numbers.

The cheaper ones (two dollar, ten dollar and twenty dollar sales) are best for recurring type services such as membership sites. Reason being is you only have to sell once to your customers and they will keep paying you until they no longer like the service you are offering.

The more expensive ones on the other hand (one thousand dollar and ten thousand dollar sales) are best for one-time offerings such as coaching programs or seminars.

Lastly, the one hundred dollar sales can either be a high-ticket recurring program or a relatively cheap one-time sale.

Simple huh? That’s the math of making $10,000 a month.

5 Awesome Affiliate Marketing Tactics that WORKS!

Are you stuck frozen trying to figure out the best way to makes sales through affiliate marketing? I know, I know. Luckily, I had the opportunity to talk with successful affiliate marketers over the years and asked them as to what works and not.

Introducing S.T.R.I.P. – a collection of five AWESOME affiliate marketing tactics that WORKS!.

S-OCIALIZE

Affiliate marketing is all about telling other people about some awesome product that you think will help them so what better way to get started than socializing with other people? Thank goodness we now have social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, socializing at a global scale is now possible with a few clicks.

I would suggest creating an informative blog post about a problem (or a set of problems) and how the product you are selling can help people solve that problem. Share the blog post on Facebook and Twitter. If you write a really useful blog post with a good catchy title then you will see people naturally click through the link and check it out. You might also get likes and comments in Facebook as well as re-tweets in Twitter.

T-REATS

Every person, young and old, love treats. Why not use this fact to bring people to your affiliate product? Give away something such as a free PDF ebook related to the product you’re selling in exchange of people doing any or all of the following:

  • Subscribing to your newsletter
  • Sharing your blog on Facebook, Twitter and Google+
  • Posting a comment on your blog post

It might require a bit of monitoring but trust me, this can get you a ton of traffic especially if you have a really tasty treat to give away. You can also spin the idea into a contest. I’ve seen people give away iPads and iPhones as prizes and makes loads of money in return.

R-EVIEW

This tactic is being used by many affiliate marketers out there and for one reason – IT WORKS. Write a comprehensive review (with screenshots and screencasts when possible) about the product that you are selling. Obviously, you will have to buy the product and use it in order to write an honest review about it. If you don’t have the money to buy it, try contacting the product owner and see if he or she can give you a trial version/account to test things out.

Reviews are awesome because people want to know what other people think about a product before they buy it. A well written review can have very high conversion rates as well.

I-NTERVIEW

This one might need a little bit more effort BUT it’s guaranteed to drive traffic to your affiliate link. Contact 5 to 10 people you know who are using the product that you’re selling. Set an appointment and do a video interview with them. It can be a physical interview recorded on video with a Flip camera or your iPhone or it can be a recorded Skype video interview.

Interviews are more credible than reviews in my opinion so do it if you can. Another great thing about interviews is that the people you interviewed are very likely to share your interview with them on their blogs and social networking accounts as well. Free traffic for you!

P-OST REGULARLY

This perhaps is the least favorite tactic amongst many affiliate marketers mainly because it’s such a chore. Here’s a tip though – you don’t have to post daily or even weekly. You just have you post regularly. Choose a schedule that you are confident you can follow and follow it. Posting regularly about the product(s) you are selling can get you good search engine rankings over time especially if you write good quality content that people actually read.

Posting regularly is a very long term strategy in affiliate marketing. I have blog posts I’ve written years ago that are still making me money until now so you better get started.

Start STRIPping and make affiliate sales now!

Can a WordPress Blog Really Make You Monthly Recurring Income?

Ever since the concept of blogging came around, the idea of having your own space on the internet has become something so common that all of us can now be gurus in our own little fields of expertise. Blogs allow us to voice our opinion, teach stuff online, or even just rant about whatever’s happening with our daily lives.

With the rise of blogging came WordPress, a free CMS built specifically for blogging. It is arguably now the most popular blogging platform in the world and it’s growing even more by the minute with more and more people building more blogs using this easy to use platform.

Business-minded people naturally gravitated to using WordPress to build their online brands and communities and started earning monthly recurring income with their blogs. The question is, is it really feasible for beginners (a.k.a. newbies) and the general public to duplicate the success of others?

The answer is 100% YES.

In my previous blog post, I showed how easily it is for you to ask people to pay you for your content and when I say easy, I really mean easy.

Are membership sites good for business? To answer that question, here are some random sites that I’m 100% sure are making good money charging for premium content.

You can see that these sites are talking about different things – from making money to clothes shopping. Also note that I’ve only listed 10. Also worth mentioning that they all use WordPress and a plugin called WishList Member to build their business.

How much money can one make with membership sites?

Let’s do some simple math. If you charge $20 a month for access to your site and you have 100 members, that’s $2,000 a month in monthly recurring income and thats only 100 members. What if you have 1000? It all really depends on the quality and consistency of your content, no matter what niche you choose.

Not bad for some extra monthly recurring income huh? I’d suggest that you get started now. Start charging for content and begin your journey towards making monthly recurring income.  Your idea might just fit in a membership site model as well.

All these sites use WishList Member which is now powering over 40,000 websites helping people earn monthly recurring income from home. I think 40,000 websites is more than enough proof that anyone can do it.

Is WishList Member free? No BUT it’s a very small one-time investment that has helped people all over the world create successful membership sites.

How to Ask People to Pay You for Your Content

Before anything else I would like to tell you that this is not a new idea BUT what I am going to tell you is a very effective and proven to make money.

This idea is for you if:

  1. You like writing good content
  2. You are willing to spend at least 8 hours a MONTH (yes, you read that right) working on your site
  3. You like making money

If you think you’re qualified, then read on.

Lots of well known online marketers have membership sites and those who don’t are moving towards the same direction. If you don’t know yet, membership sites are sites (usually blogs) that charge a monthly premium for content or service.

But why would people pay for what most of the time is essentially just a blog post? The answer is – for the same reason they go to school. What you will be doing is basically build an online school about a certain topic that you are really good at.

How does one build a membership site and start charging for content?

  1. Have a WordPress blog
  2. Install the WishList Member plugin
  3. Crank some content, both free and paid content
  4. Start promoting your blog

Yup, that simple.

PRO TIPS:

  1. Produce content regularly. I would advise producing both free and paid content. The purpose of your free content is to attract people to your blog and to promote your paid content.
  2. Don’t blatantly promote your premium stuff in your free posts. Instead, all you need to do is write good quality useful content and people will naturally want more.
