I want to share with you exact processes
that lead me to generate over $367,709.41
online with just my laptop and a few basic,
inexpensive and simple to use applications.
6 years ago, I quit my job and haven’t looked back since.
Many people helped me along the way I’ve decided
to pay it forward and share with you how I did it and the
“exact” step-by-step blueprint that you can follow to do it yourself.
I actually sell the information I’m about to share with
you as a digital course but I’m dumping it here for you for free.
All that I ask is you take this info VERY seriously as it
can absolutely change your life if you apply it.
Here are the full stats from a few of my accounts.
Warrior Plus – All Time Vendor Sales: $143,459.07
Warrior Plus – All Time Affiliate Sales: $36,801.57
JVZoo Account 1 – All Time Affiliate Sales: $23,890.74
JVZoo Account 1 – All Time Vendor Sales: $23,124.41
JVZoo Account 2 – All Time Affiliate Sales: $3,922.78
JVZoo Account 2 – All Time Vendor Sales: $136,510.84
Add it all up:
These are my Real accounts.
And that’s just on two platforms.
There’s way more than that.
I didn’t even show you the residual
recurring I have built up as well.
This has allowed me to travel all over and
meet with some of the top marketers
and entrepreneurs in the world.
This is all because of one simple and repeatable process.
It is a very simple 3 part business.
Create & sell simple digital “how to” guides.
Part 2: Add the customers to my email list.
Part 3: Mail my subscribers with more products and recommend affiliate products.
It’s as Easy as that.
EVERYONE tries to overcomplicate it.
The Truth is, the more simple you keep it
the more money you’ll make with it.
I want to make something very clear.
This is the exact process and business map
that I’ve used for the past few years to
generate a full time income online.
Anyone with a computer, an
internet connection, a willingness
to learn and the drive to earn Can succeed.
OK… Let’s get to the good stuff.
I’m going to lay out the foundation and recipe for my online business.
Like a recipe, just follow the steps in this guide.
It’s very simple for a reason.
My online business consists of 3 parts.
Part 1: Create & sell simple “how to” guides.
Part 2: Add customers to my email list.
Part 3: Offer other products and affiliate products to my list.
First let’s talk about WHY then HOW.
There are several reasons to sell your own info product.
- Instant payments upon sale
- Customers go on your email list
- You build an instant relationship with your customers
- It’s digital, no handling any inventory
- It all works on near autopilot
- Opens the door to upsells and higher ticket
- You control everything and call the shots
- Build an army of affiliates that sell your products for you
- Opens the door to easy affiliate sales from your list
Why have an email list?
- Continue to communicate with people who bought from you
- They will buy more of your products
- They will buy products you recommend as an affiliate
- Closest REAL thing you can get to “push button make money”.
- You can automate email drip sequences for weeks (even months) that continue to make you money while you sleep
Affiliate Product sales:
- Very time consuming or expensive to do WITHOUT an email list. Most people try to sell affiliate products FIRST, instead you should sell your own product first THEN sell affiliate products to your customer list… this is much easier and they are 3x more assured to buy (compared to cold paid traffic).
- With affiliate products, basically all you do is send emails to your list about niche related products that interest them. You get a commission from each sale without having to do anything further.
- Recurring affiliate products ROCK. I make a handsome amount each month in recurring income simply from promoting affiliate products that have recurring price points. These REALLY add up quickly to thousands a month!
So now you know the why, let’s get to the “how”.
How to Instantly Know the Perfect Niche (topic/interest/verticals) for You.
This is definitely in the top 5 of questions I get asked
on a regular basis. And the answer is strikingly simple.
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
- What is that one thing you talk about every chance you get?
- What is it that when you talk about it with your friends, you dominate the conversation because you like it so much?
- What is it that when you talk about it, your significant other rolls their eyes because they are tired of you talking about it?
You don’t even have to think about it, you know what that thing is.
That is your niche.
Some people will try and tell you not to follow your passion.
There are enough people who like what you like for you
to make money in it. Period.
The thing is.. We are running an information business here so you need Content. That is to say.. you need to simply love to TALK about your topic. Or at the very least be interested enough to review prewritten content.
It’s so much easier to whip out an ebook or a video
about something you really like.
And way easier to write a daily/weekly email if your niche
is Golf.. and you actually like golf.
The key is simply finding whats in demand in your niche.
So that’s it. You now know your perfect niche.
#2: How to whip up simple “How-To” manuals
that sell like Hot cakes in your target market.
(even if you’ve Never done it before)
So there’s really two parts to this:
– What are you going to talk about?
– How do you write the pdf / create videos?
We’ve already determined your niche, now we need to come up
with content that people are willing to pay for.
The best sellers are simple one problem one solution manuals.
You find a common problem in your niche and you simplify a step-by-step process that resolves that problem.
Bob Abrahamsson is a good friend and previous client of mine who has a passion for Golf. He’s retired and on the greens almost daily and loves to talk Golf with his buddies on Facebook.
He came to me looking to make a little extra on the side and I pointed out that Golf is a great topic.
He wound up writing a small series of short punchy ebooks like “Golf Simplified: 10 Easy Techniques to Improve Your Game”.
Turns out people loved those little reports.
He sold them for $9.95 each.
Bob also set up a small Facebook group where customers of the book could join in the conversation. He charged a small entry fee to get in (though he could have charged a small recurring).
There are also other types of info products you can make.
Educational, entertainment, motivational… whatever suits your niche.
A great place to get ideas is Amazon’s Top Sellers book section:
Amazon Best Sellers: Best Books
That will show you all of the top selling
books for every category on Amazon.
Now for the Technical side…
This part is REALLY simple.
As you can see, the very training you are reading,
that you would have paid for if you were my customers,
is just a simple plain text document.
I actually wrote it in Evernote which is a notepad app.
You could use Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or the plain
text editor on your computer or tablet or smart phone.
Don’t worry about the length of pages.
It could be 10 pages or 100 pages depending on your topic.
What matters is that the content is there and you’ve delivered on the premise of the information.
A lot of people will use a “5/5” system.
Meaning they break the topic up into 5 sections
and then break those up into 5 subsections each.
When you are staring at a blank page, that 5/5 comes in handy
because you just write out the overall bullet points.
Step 1, Step 2, Step 3, Step 4, Step 5
Then break down each of those steps into 5.
REPORT: How to Build an Email list
Step 1 – Build squeeze page
Step 1 – Sign up for ClickFunnels
Step 2 – New squeeze page from template
Step 3 – Add headline
Step 4 – Call to Action
Step 5 – Opt-in form
Step 2 – Drive traffic
Step 1 – Buy FB Ads
Step 2 – Buy solo ads
Step 3 – Youtube videos
Step 4 – Forum signatures
Step 5 – Influencers
And so on…
You get the idea.
After that it’s a piece of cake to fill in that outline with the details.
#3 – How to get floods of Free hungry traffic to your offers.
The traffic source I use 95% of the time for fresh blood.
One of the biggest complaints among beginners is that they don’t know where to get good traffic. In a moment you’ll realize that you will never have that problem again.
See traffic is all around you. It’s everywhere.
And the best sources of traffic are from the people producing content that caters to large audiences in their niche. (also known as “influencers”)
Influencers have created a close bond with their audience. Their readers and viewers look forward to their content and their recommendations.
No matter what niche you are in, there are influencers.
These influencers don’t just churn content for free though.
They want to make money too.
They need people like you with products that they can recommend to their audience and get paid when you get sales.
Also known as affiliate commissions.
This is great for them because all they have to do is write up a quick review article or email or video and send it out to their audience(s) via email, YouTube, blogs, podcasts, Instagram followings and etc.
Most influencers work multiple platforms and social networks so you can reach different types of audiences in your niche.
Two scenarios to leverage influencers:
- Pay commissions per sale like an affiliate.
- Pay them a flat fee upfront.
Affiliate traffic is my favorite traffic because the influencer recommends (pre-sells) your product to their lists without you paying out of pocket.
They will collect a percentage of the profit from each sale that
is sent via their special link or promotion.
The systems that handle this do it all automatically for you (we’ll go over that in a bit in the technical stuff).
In addition you can offer bonuses and cash contests to your affiliates as a bigger incentive to promote harder and get more sales.
The other option is to pay upfront, usually a flat fee.
And to find out the price, simply ask.
Ask them how much they would charge to do a promotion of your product to their different networks.
Influencer traffic is the best paid traffic in the world.
It’s really as simple as that.
This is because it’s HOT traffic that the influencers are literally PRE-selling for you. Meaning these people want to buy before they ever even hit your sales page.
So I know you’re asking “where” to find influencers but honestly the answer is everywhere on every platform around you.
Look for big FB or Instagram or YouTube or Twitter or Pinterest accounts, etc.. in your niche that have a large number of followers, and contact them about paying for a shoutout or post to their page, or email to their list or blog or podcast or ANYWHERE.
Everyone speaks the language of money and anyone with a large following has been approached numerous times before, they know how to handle this question and probably even can copy/paste all the info right there for ya.
Also niche Facebook groups are a fantastic way to connect with the core people in your industry.
In just about any niche there are also groups like where influencers hang out and discuss their topic as well as live in person conventions. Putting yourself in those places can take your business to a whole different level.
You are now armed with the knowledge to get as much of the highest converting traffic as you could ever possibly want/need.
#4 The Email Marketers Golden Rule Book:
Follow these 5 simple rules & WIN
with email marketing.
(yes it’s this simple)
If you’re new to writing emails to an email list, don’t fret.
Follow these guidelines and you’ll be ok. (and you’ll make money)
1. Your subscribers are your students.
People are essentially on your list to learn. They want to consume content about the topic they are interested in and passionate about or having a problem with. Teach them.
2. Your subscribers are your friends.
These are real people, with real lives. If you met them offline then you would create an incredible connection (I’ve met some of mine and it’s a life changing experience).
Treat them as such. Treat them as your dear friends.
3. Always be talking to 1 person.
Remember that on the other side of the screen there is just one person sitting there reading. It wouldn’t make sense to talk to him like a group of people.
The easiest way to start for me is to mentally picture the actual person I am talking to, like you are sitting there at the bar hanging out with a buddy telling him about the coolest new golf club that just came out (only we give them a link directly to buy it )
4. Ask them what they want.
The easiest way to do this is either ask them to reply to your email with their answer (ninja tip: this will also increase your deliverability rate with email servers).
You can also use a survey. Many autoresponders like Aweber and GetResponse have surveys built in or you can use a free service like SurveyMonkey.
Ask them short pointed questions like:
- What is stopping you from doing xyz?
- What things are you interested in seeing from me?
- What are the top 3 things you struggle with?
- What are the top 3 things you love to do?
- Who do you look up to most in this industry?
- Why did you sign up to my newsletter?
- What do you like most about my newsletter?
- What do you hate about my newsletter?
- What’s the best time of day to send you an email?
Anything that will help you better understand their needs.
They will tell you. You can even offer a thank you gift for answering.. this works very well.
5. Give them what they want.
Dead simple right? They just told you what they want. So deliver it on a silver platter.
Find products you can promote as an affiliate that fulfills those wants and needs. You can google search “your niche affiliate” and find products to promote. Also on Clickbank.com, JVZoo.com, WarriorPlus.com as well as Amazon’s affiliate program, also CPA offers … Offervault.com is a good place to search for CPA offers.
And that’s it!
Follow those 5 guidelines and you’ll have no problem making money with email marketing.
#5 – The NASCAR Pit Stop Quick guide
to the Technical stuff.
So everyone’s biggest fear about running an online info product business is the “technical stuff”.
I’m here to tell you, don’t be so worried.
The technology we have today is designed for the average Joe to go in and create a sales page and use an autoresponder and everything you need is really point & click simple.
There are videos on every website for every tool you use, check Youtube even if you need help. If you don’t know “how” to do something technical just look it up on youtube and you learn or contact the support desk of the thing you are working with or find a group of people who would know and simply ask.
So here’s what you need, from a technical standpoint:
– A few simple web pages.
– A payment processor.
– Affiliate management platform.
For website hosting I personally use LiquidWeb. There are cheaper solutions out there.
I used Host Gator for a few years. They are great. Their support isn’t bad and the price is right for folks on a tiny budget.
Their Baby plan works just fine for what we are doing and is super cheap.
You’ll need to install WordPress (unless you know HTML and can make a few simple HTML pages on your own).
WordPress is a website management platform that allows the average Joe to make a website without knowing any code. It’s mostly point and click kinda stuff.
If you find you need help, most good hosts will actually do it for you if you just ask.
An Alternative Solution
There’s a new breed of onliner that’s kicking traditional hosting to the curb and opting for the “all-you-need” solution. This is what I mostly use now.
They are turning to platforms like ClickFunnels that offer extremely powerful funnel building tools that make it effortless to build.
They host your pages as well so no dealing with hosting and all that. Just log in, manage your pages and your customers and everything from one dashboard.
I HIGHLY recommend ClickFunnels if you are looking for easy, non-technical, and don’t want to deal with hosting.
LeadPages and InstaPage are similar.
All of these will integrate easily with most popular autoresponders.
Another Alternative Solution
Have someone else build your pages and do the technical stuff for you. If you flat out just don’t want to even try to do it, then just hand it off to someone else.
A few places you can look: Upwork , Fiverr , Freelancer. are more great places to find people to build your pages.
All of these places are not just great resources for finding web designers but also people who can help you with any kind of technical thing that you could possibly need.
There are several to choose from.
I currently use GetResponse.
I’ve also used Aweber, it’s good.
I hear Sendlane is good as well.
All of these technical platforms have easy to follow instructions on how to use them.
You are now armed with the knowledge to change your life.
You can take the information you just learned and create for yourself a full-time income online in a very short period of time.
In the end, excuses are exactly that, excuses.
I’ve seen people go from the most incredibly bad situations and become millionaires from doing this exact business model.
