How To Make $1000 Part 2
On the old blog I gave you a pretty sure-fire way to earn $1000. Well, how about another way too?
And the great thing about this is that you can be done in a week and on to new things. But this is going to be a somewhat controversial post as it goes against all the new ways many people, including me, have been saying to go about this business.
This is not about building a thing to be proud of.
This is not about stellar content.
This is not about making the best looking site in the world.
This is not about being the most useful site in the world.
This is about earning money.
This is about whacking out content at a break-neck speed so that you earn an extra grand a month.
This has come about basically because I have just been checking my stats on Amazon. And it has pretty much been in my head in part ever since I wrote a post in the Pond about it all adding up, money that is. You know, earnings from here and there. Sites that I set up, backlinked to in a short burst then left to themselves all add up to well over a grand a month. Proper passive income, not pretend passive.
It has also come about as we have been doing some great things in the pond and we have been showing just what you can actually achieve in a day, or a few hours. Ten blog posts in an hour or two? Simple. Build a site before someone else can even be bothered to finish their lazy ass Squidoo lens? Simple.
And this is what this post is about. It is about getting you in to action and stopping you from being SLOW and getting nowhere fast. So many people need a clear and definite plan, I keep forgetting this. I just get on with my work every day. Others want something to reference.
So I am going to lay it out for you, learn exactly how to make a living online, so get off your bum and actually start to see the potential in the game we all find ourselves in, or want to be in.
A million words a year should be your MINIMAL goal.
And really you should be aiming for at least 2 MILLION!
Work it out on for each day. Surprising huh?
But first you are going to have to bear with me. This is my blog after all and I want to say a few things before we get down to business.
Before I get in to this and let you in on the exact ways to do it I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has joined the Pond.
So far things are going great and not only have we had some amazing contributions from people that have never even commented here on the blog but we have got some great deals too. After a post I got us a discount on Article Marketing Robot exclusive to the Pond plus a good few other nice deals too. The epic guides section is great with an amazing 10,000 word article on how to use e-mail marketing effectively. Plus a contribution from yours truly too.
Wifey has outed a site she is building, we have been improving members sites so they earn more and the accountability section is producing so much more work from members that it is unbelievable. So to those that joined, hope you are enjoying yourselves. And to those that haven’t joined yet but said you would then your loss. I am closing the doors at 100 members so you can’t get in now.
Joke, although I may do that, not sure yet.
We are just a couple short of 100 paid members currently. Scrap that, we just got number 100.
Anyway, enough self promotion from this evil marketer, let’s get down to business.
Make Crap Sites And Earn A Grand A Month
I know, I know.
Where is the stellar content and the pride stuff Dave?
Out the window I am afraid.
A lot of people have been saying that you need fantastic copy to rank these days. And the bottom line is that this is absolutely not true. I am not talking about Adsense sites where you may risk a manual inspection and your account disabled. I am talking about product sites, with an emphasis on Amazon. But any affiliate program really.
Crap sites may be an exaggeration but this article is going to explain.
What we are going to be doing is building sites that are quick and that are going to be put up as soon as possible. The reality is that most people have absolutely no idea about what can really be accomplished in a days work at the computer. They loaf, they pretend to work, and they really have done bugger all when they look back at the end of the day, in comparison to those that really put in REAL work. This is going to get you out of this habit.
It needs 5 days.
Here is the plan:
- Buy 5 domain names and set up the relevant installs. WP, plugins, etc.
- No theme decisions, leave the default.
- 5 niches based around products.
- Each day you will put up 15 posts.
- In 5 days you have 5 sites.
Get to it!!!
Okay, let’s talk about this.
The reality is that most people do not do enough work. It is THE main reason why they do not earn.
I am all for having a passion site and having sites that are things of beauty. BUT, the content needs to be online. The more content you have the more you earn. That is the way it works. No argument there.
But people get so caught up in pondering rather than doing. What theme to use. What plugins, etc etc.
And then when it comes to content they feel that they HAVE to put out amazing content because that is what everyone is saying they have to do.
It is a fallacy.
Stellar and amazing content does one thing and one thing only.
It converts better. OR it is needed if you are chasing social factors rather than serps positions because of backlinks. A bot does simply not know if what is written is the best thing in the world or just a rather coherent string of words or sentences. They are not capable of making a decision as to how great your copy is. Your visitors are.
But without any content you will get no visitors. So I want you to change that.
I want you to dedicate a day to a single site. If you cannot get 15 posts up on a site in 8 hours then you need to have a serious think about things. These are not going to be the best in the world. But they will be up there and waiting for you. Speed is of the essence. This is so you actually ACT. Once we have the initial tasks done then we make our content amazing if it is slightly sub-par.
I want you to do this for 5 days.
Each site then needs to earn $200 a month for you to make a grand a month extra. $6.66 a day. Doesn’t sound so bad now does it?
Once you have done this task then we will get on to the rest.
But here is the absolute best way to accomplish this task and really begin to get some improved earnings.
- Use the theme default with WordPress.
- Install xml sitemap.
- Write your 15 posts straight and publish them. No aff links or anything, including pictures.
- Once the 15 are up go back in to each and add your images.
- Once that is done go back in and add your affiliate links. To no more than 8 of the 15 posts. 2 aff links max per post.
- Once that is done go back in and interlink each article. 2 links from every article to other posts.
- Once that is done you are free to mess about with the site layout and theme, not before.
It is about being as productive as possible in the shortest period of time possible. By segmenting your work you get in to the groove and work faster. I showed a real life example in the Pond of me doing this. 10 blog posts were done in a few hours.
Segment each job and you find the groove and you whizz through the work like there is no tomorrow. A day will see you at least having the basic content up. If you can’t do the remaining tasks in the day then tough. It will have to wait until you have finished the 5 new sites.
Many of you will be thinking that these sites will never rank.
Many of you may think that unless the copy is amazing and over 1000 words you won’t rank.
The reality is that 300 words can rank just fine. So can 150. Don’t just believe what some Dude on the Internet said. You know, that you HAVE to write long posts and have amazing copy.
It is simply not true.
Trust me on this. If you do this kind of productive work you will be amazed at yourself. You will feel absolutely awful after doing this for 5 days straight. If you work then do it in the evenings or the weekend. But be aware of the time. 8 hours per site max before you move on to the next one.
15 posts minimum.
Once you have done these sites then you get to go back over them all.
If what you wrote is not stellar and you want it to be then change it. Add to it, edit it. Format properly with H2’s, bolds, bullet pints and lists. Just like this post. Add in all your privacy and contact pages and make it lurvely. But do the basic groundwork first and then make it stellar. It will get you out of a rut and in to productivity. So really what I am saying is, yes, write stellar content that is the best there is. But do some basics first. Once it is up you will then feel a compulsion to go back and change it. This is good and you will then have 5 amazing sites.
Do you see where I am coming from now?
Not such a contradiction to the new WAY after all is it?
Look at your stats and if you have any traffic add in the longtails.
Sorry, but that is what we do.
Let them age. You have interlinked each site internally for maximum on-site SEO. Let them settle and find their natural place.
If you can wait 6 months then all the better.
Then we backlink.
We backlink each one for a day.
60 Build My Ranks or 30 Postrunners, in a day. A day for each one over 5 days. 10 links to go live a day maximum, preferably less. Or whatever other backlinking option you prefer.
Then we wait, and see what happens.
You will be surprised.
If you do nothing else apart from that they will earn.
If any are lagging a month or two after the initial backlinking they can be linked to again. And the ones that earn the most can be thoroughly worked over, added to and backlinked more.
If that does not earn you a grand a month after 6 months or a year then you need to go do something different.
What? You wanted to earn the grand this month?
Get real Dude, it ain’t that easy.
But what you will find is that after a year some of these sites will be earning a good few hundred a month. And THEN you can take one from that to a grand in a month. You just focus all your attention on it and it will jump in earnings like you would not believe. And all the while you will have been dedicating a years worth of REAL work to your other projects too.
Let me know how far you got in 5 days.
I wish I had a BOO! button like I do in the Pond for those that start but fail to finish!
