Who Wants a Free Membership Website?

I have been playing around with member sites lately, and I love the leverage aspect of them. Because of this, I am making the following offer.

I will partner 50/50 with a select few people to create some membership websites. I will provide the website and the marketing for the website and will work to get affiliates signed up to promote it, and you provide the content for the site.

My ideal partners will be able to create articles and how-to/tutorials, videos with Camtasia or some other screen capture software, and podcasts. The partner will have patience to allow us to create a great value packed membership website. This can take months.

Any interested parties will only be considered if they comment below and tell me what kind of member site they want and how they are a good fit for a partner. I will contact you through the email address you post with if I am interested in partnering with you.

Membership Sites: The OTHER Green Meat

Membership websites are something you probably haven’t considered if you are blogging for income, or trying to make money as an affiliate…but you should think long and hard about leaving cash on the table. It’s fairly easy to setup a member site and you don’t need Duhaime’s Law Dictionary to get into business (although you may want to brush up on legal web jargon). A member site can be created using WordPress and the Magic Members plugin.

I currently have a couple of membership sites in development, and I can give you some quick pointers.

  • Use WordPress and Magic Members for the easiest and quickest setup.
  • Pay extra attention to pages that are locked and ones that are unlocked for guests. You need to provide free info in order to make the sale.
  • Ensure that you have lots of original content before you start marketing.
  • Provide weekly or some other regularly scheduled updates.
  • Send out a monthly newsletter to ensure engagement by members.
  • Offer a free newsletter so you can market to potential customers (and upsell existing ones).

Marketing a member website is just as simple as marketing a blog or any other website. You want to use the same article marketing, blog hopping, and guest posting techniques. Traffic is key…especially targeted traffic. If you are already marketing via another newsletter, you may be able to send out a message telling them about the new membership website.

In addition to the standard marketing, I like to promote my member sites with my ebooks. When I create a new website, I create a couple of ebooks for sale on Amazon, and some shorter “free reports”. All of them will reference the new website somewhere inside of it. Just make sure not to over-do it and spam or you will be reviewed with that information (you may be labeled with that regardless by sabotage).

Later on, I will post a much more detailed article on member sites and marketing. I wanted to quickly post one to spark your interest in the idea of making money this way.

Make Money as an Amazon eBook Author: Tricks & Methods

Something I have dedicated my time to for the past many months has been writing eBooks and publishing them on the Amazon Kindle Store. At this point, I would like to say that I’m an expert on the subject and I’m happy to share my knowledge with you. The great thing about kindle books is that the market is perfect for the weekend author. You can do this as a hobby to get started, and then you will begin to see that actual money is coming in. Not pennies, but hundreds of dollars that can help you pay your utility bills.

As an author, you probably envision writing a best-selling novel and blowing up like Harry Potter. The problem is that most people don’t have the time to go at a perfect novel in the beginning. They work endless hours at their day job, and it’s just to hard juggling writing with work and family. If you do things the “other” way, then you will be able to free up your time and possibly quit your job.

Casting aside the idea to create a best-seller, you should focus on the smaller books that provide real value to someone looking for the information. You read the part where I said “real value” right? You can’t just throw crap out the window and hope dollars rain in. You can make money writing and selling 20-30 page eBooks for 99 cents a piece, as long as those books are filled with useable information and not fluff or filler.

I found that you can find a freelancer that will write a book for you on the cheap, and you can get your e-cover designed on the cheap as well. The good thing is that I do all of these things myself, so I save money. It takes a few minutes to design the cover in Photoshop. The writing doesn’t take very long; I just make sure the topics are well researched and the eBook is nicely edited and formatted.

If you publish books for more than 99 cents, they sell much less. One of my 99 cent books made over $1,000 in a single month on it’s own through sales and borrows (in the KDP Select program). Many authors have a problem joining KDP Select. I don’t because my books are 99 cents already. On that royalty scale, I only make 35 cents per sale. Borrows have turned out to pay around $1.80 per borrow. See the difference there?

The trick to making money with Amazon Kindle Store is to play a numbers game. If you write quality informational books, or even short story novels, you will get sales. It’s that simple. If you don’t take the time to make a perfect book, even if it’s small, it will not sell.

Once you do have your eBook and cover ready, you need to ensure you have a good description. The more information you provide about what your book contains, the higher the chances of it selling.

I would keep writing, but instead I found out today that my friend Steve Scott already wrote an excellent article on making money with Amazon Kindle. Check out that article How to Make Money with Amazon Kindle Books.

Weird Ways to Make Money

My research into money making has brought me to some interesting websites. I have found many weird ways to make money. One such way was with a few lotto subscriptions. I know, it sounds bogus, but stick with me for a second. On the Illinois lottery website, I can get a mega millions subscription for $26. I got 5 of them. Week after week, I would win small amounts that added up to much more than my initial investment. You don’t have to hit the jackpot to recoup your money.

Another weird way to make money is by offering a space in your drive-way for rental parking. This tends to work in City areas that are prone to not having street parking because they are so packed with cars. You can actually rent someone your space for a couple hundred bucks as long as you have room for your car too.

One other way I have made some money was to get some stuff around the house that’s in the way, and offer it for a price on Craigslist. The difference between Craigslist and eBay is the fact that you won’t end up paying a fee to post on Craigslist. On top of that, you are more likely to sell something there too. The traffic is much different, and your item will stick out better.

I will keep an eye out for more weird ways to make money and keep you posted.

A New Way for Authors to Make Money

CPA (Cost Per Action) and the Facts

Cost Per Action, also known as CPA is all about conversions. I have discussed CPA in the past on this blog, and I would like to get into more detail here and now for those of you looking to make a long-term residual income.

Timelines from placement to action

The thing about cpa is that it is tricky to make money with if you have no previous experience with it. I am always excited about getting people into cpa, and sometimes get crazy about it when talking about how it works. Just ask Alex Whalley who I introduced a few months back to this wonderful world.

CPA is something I love because it allows me to make good chunks of money with little effort. How you say? Ok, I did warn you that it is hard to make money from with no experience, but when you do have that experience, it is easy as a $10 hooker on a crack withdrawal.

First, you will of course need to setup some niche sites. That’s CPA-101. Without niche sites, you aren’t being all you can be. But you don’t have to have niche sites in order to make money with CPA. I will discuss this more down the road ( I don’t want you skipping out on me early ).

Marketing a CPA niche site

For me, I love the fact that Google is my bitch when it comes to seo. I have been doing seo since 1994 back when Google wasn’t nearly as great as Yahoo!. Unfortunately, this won’t be the case for a bunch of you. So it’s important to get the basics down when it comes to seo.

You can learn more about search engine optimization with these handy articles…

That should be enough to get you started.

Google CPA (Cost Per Action) And The FactsYou will find that seo is vital to your long term cpa strategy. It’s not important to rank for every possible term in your niche, but it’s mighty handy to rank for a few good terms. If this blog were a cpa niche site, I would bank off of it with cpa more than I do. That’s because I get tons of traffic from Google’s natural organic rankings. It’s mostly because I have hundreds of articles on this blog which accumulated over it’s lifetime.

SEO is NOT your solution to short term cpa success! Let me explain…

If you just got into cpa and you are looking to rack up the $$$$$$ right now, you want to push social media sharing like you would push an old Pinto out of traffic. Here’s why I love social networks for cost per action campaigns…

The great thing about social media is that I don’t even need a website to promote my cpa offers. I can create a shortened link, and then have it ‘retweeted’ or ‘liked’ over and over. If you engage on Twitter regularly, you probably have a great solid network that will tweet any message you ask them to. The more friends you have with thousands of followers equals free traffic to your cpa offer.

Not using Twitter? Well you are slacking, and you probably shouldn’t be doing cpa in the first place. Again, this is CPA-101 stuff.

ADS come in all sizes

Are you cheap? I hope not. The next thing I want to discuss is all about ad campaigns. I am not talking about adwords or some other ppc/cpm medium. I am talking about utilizing ad networks like BuySellAds in order to drive traffic to your offers.

On BuySellAds.com, there are tons of websites you can list your banner ad on. Locate a few in your niche or a related niche, and submit your banner to them for a small price. If your ad cost $25 per month to place, and you made $3-4 per action, you only need a few actions in order to cover the cost.

This tactic may take a few tries to get right, but when it happens, you will know it.

Setup Offers on Your Blog

If you have an established blog like mine, you can create an offers page and direct readers there. If you have an seo blog, you can promote MaxBounty links for seo software. If you have a health and diet blog, guess what?! They have offers for that!

I don’t have an offers page on my blog only because I focus more on driving traffic to my consulting services, and other items that make up a good majority of my income from blogging.

How Would You Like FREE Advertising?

Let’s get straight to the point. I have been busy writing books, and selling them. My most successful platform for selling ebooks is through Amazon.

My latest project is a book of interviews from the top “work at home” gurus out there, and some of the lesser known ones. Here’s where you come in…

You have a chance to be in my next book!

I am compiling a list of at least 40 people that are successful working at home, with no other job to provide their main source of income. If you are currently working from home and making your entire income this way, then you are someone that I want to talk to.

Your story will be included in a large ebook with some top names in the business. You will receive a link with your interview in the ebook, which will drive traffic your way as well.

Interested? Tell me your basic story in 1,000 words or less via my contact form. If I am interested in hearing more, I will contact you and arrange an interview.

My timeline for completing this book would be one month from now preferably. You will receive a review copy of the book when it’s complete.

Start a Business From Home This Year

As the economy continues to struggle, I see more and more people deciding to work for themselves. Nobody trust’s corporate America anymore, or any corporation for that matter…

If you have been dying to work at home, now’s the perfect time! I have actually created a consultation site in case you need some help!

http://www.homebizconsultant.biz/

FactCheck Start a Business From Home This YearUnderstand that starting your own business is the only true way to control your life, and ensure that your family is taken care of.

We have billions of people on this planet, and each of them are a potential customer for your new business. Knowing this fact, how come major corporations keep laying people off? It just doesn’t make any sense! If these companies are making billions of dollars in sales every year, then why can’t they afford to keep people employed? It’s their greed!

Corporations exist to provide profits to share holders. If the company is not making big profits, then their stocks drop. More and more companies are going overseas or replacing human workers with industrial machines!

Your Job Security

Your job security is actually your own responsibility in the current economy. It’s already been proven over and over that people who work for themselves are much happier, and much wealthier. It’s up to you to stop living paycheck to paycheck only to not have any job security when it’s all over.

Most people that avoid working for themselves simply don’t understand how easy it can be to start a successful business from home. They don’t understand that they actually have talents within themselves that people want and will pay for.

Let’s take me for example. I have been working from home since 2002. I started working for myself without any type of access to a business coach. I struggled for awhile before I reached success. The only reason I struggled was because I had no idea what to do and how to do it. If I did, then I would have reached success within a very short period of time. In that case, I wouldn’t have the knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in order to teach you how to be successful. Now, you don’t have to work hard on things that fail. If you hired me as your business coach then I would tell you what works and what doesn’t. I have a marketable skill.

What’s your skill?

1175306 paperwork Start a Business From Home This YearHard work is never fun. But even worse, it’s never fun to not be able to afford things like vacations.

As someone that wakes up every day and works really hard, I think that the working class are the ones that really deserve a vacation every now and then. So why is it the wealthy people that always end up taking vacations all the time?!

It’s because they can afford it. Not only can they afford it, but they have all the time in the world to do what they want.

  • What if you could afford multiple vacations every year?
  • What if you made your own hours?
  • What if you wanted to buy a new car?
  • What if you wanted to buy your dream home?

None of that can be done if you are working a dead-end job!

If you aren’t convinced to work for yourself after that, then you are meant to work hard for someone else the rest of your life. If that isn’t you though, then visit http://www.homebizconsultant.biz/ and get started on the path to happiness!
