2 million dollars per year from type-in traffic?

"I don't like to work," says longtime domainer Rick Schwartz, almost yelling as if to convince everyone within earshot that they're fools if they do. "I figure any moron in the world can generate work for themselves and tie up their time. I have one laptop, no employees, and no product whatsoever -- none! This is magic." Magic, he claims, that's earning him $2 million a year.

I pulled this quote from the story on CNN Money website located here.

WOW! 2 million bucks a year simply for buying domain names and pointing them to partner websites??? That's incredible.

I've tried my hand at a little domain prospecting myself, but have not yet pulled in any Rick Schwartz type income from the type-in traffic alone...

A few years ago I paid a lady in Yugoslavia several thousand dollars for my http://www.Home-Business.com domain. I make a lot of money from that site these days, but it's not type-in traffic that does it for me. I promote my Home-Business.com website using various Internet marketing strategies.

I also paid a large chunk of change recently for my http://www.WebsiteBuilder.com domain that I currently have re-directed to a website building product I'm affiliated with. I do earn some money from the type-in traffic for this domain but I'm still a long way away from recouping my total investment...

According to the news story on CNN Money, Rick Schwartz has over 5000 domains and paid $108,000 for his Candy.com domain name back in May 2002. He apparently has a strategy that works well for him and it just goes to show you that there are many different ways to make a living from the Internet.

Income from virtually anywhere in the world...

It's 12:48 in the afternoon as I start this post and I'm sitting in a gymnasium with my wife and son watching our daughter work out in her private gymnastics lesson.

I've got my laptop turned on and I'm logged into my Blogger account via my Verizon wireless broadband Internet connection.

This kind of freedom is one of things that inspired me to start and Internet business in the first place. I always thought it would be so incredible to create and control my financial life through a little electronic box that I can carry with me virtually anywhere in the world.

Last year, I spent 3 weeks in Hawaii with my family at the exquisite Kea Lani resort in Maui. It was amazing and while I was there, my Internet business didn't miss a beat. A couple of hours a day, I'd just relax in my gorgeous hotel room, plug into the high speed connection and take care of my daily business duties.

Now I'm planning a 2 month vacation to France with my family this summer. This kind of freedom is only possible for me because I've worked hard to create a successful Internet business that can now be run from any computer in the world that has Internet access.

And now that I have a wireless broadband connection from Verizon, I can take care of business virtually anywhere...

I've realized my dream and the view from here is absolutely breathtaking.

The technology and opportunity for you to create a similar business that allows you to work when you want and where you want on your own terms exists for you right now. There are as many ways to earn money on the Internet as there are people in the world. And this whole "making money online" phenomenon is really just getting started.

The world is an amazing place and the opportunities for freedom are increasing every day. Stop sitting on the sidelines and get in the game.

If you're looking for an easy and fast way to start generating an online income I encourage you to check out my Plug-In Profit Site service.

Mega Profits Program

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

Mega Profits Program: Make Unlimited Commissions On THREE Different Levels At The Same Time Now!

That's the claim. Let's see how it works...

In the final section of your Secret Affiliate Weapon membership center, Ewen explains in greater detail how the Secret Affiliate Weapon (SAW) affiliate program works. He explains that you get paid $5.98 up-front for every customer you refer to the SAW website. That's not much, but then it gets a little interesting...

Ewen's affiliate program also pays you when the customers you refer also buy the ClickBank affiliate products he recommends inside the membership site. So the customers you refer would also have the opportunity to buy other products Ewen recommends on the back-end and you would get a commission for those sales too.

I'll say this about it... It's a clever setup. Indeed, Ewen is a brilliant marketer and has created a solid win-win proposition for his affiliates.

Moreover, he goes on in this section to include several pre-made marketing materials for you to promote your Secret Affiliate Weapon affiliate site including a couple of ezine solo ads, a few classified ads and some attractive promotional images like this:



Ewen also assures you that promotional articles are on the way too.

Ewen wraps up the site by asking you to submit your success story or testimonial if you found the membership to be beneficial to you as an affiliate marketer and finishes up with a final P.S. to encourage you to join the "Your Lucky List" and "Instant Buzz" traffic generating programs. Once a marketer, always a marketer! ;-)

Very nice job on the site Ewen.

You've earned the official Dotcomology Seal of Approval.

Instant Traffic Package

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

The next item up for grabs in your Secret Affiliate Weapon membership is "500 laser-targeted and REAL visitors".

To claim these visitors requires that you setup an account with Marvin Haycock's Ad Voyager program. I was going to test it out but one of the rules of the program stipulate that: "I agree to place the AdVoyager code (advertisements) on at least one of my trafficked web pages while my ad campaign is active."

I don't agree to that. There's a catch to claim the free 500 visitors... And that implies that the 500 visitors are coming from ads on other people's websites. In reality, even if you cooperated, it could take years to get your 500 visitors from this program if you get them at all. I'm not impressed with this offer.

Secret Affiliate Weapon Database

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

The next item available inside your Secret Affiliate Weapon membership is a "Secret Database" that Ewen says contains short, simple and to the point information on succeeding with affiliate marketing. Basically, it's a private member's only blog that Ewen updates with this latest articles.

In his first post, Ewen outlines his 'proprietary' 7-Step "Affiliate Cash Checklist" which is his answer for how to choose a good affiliate program to promote.

His 2nd post in his secret blog is just another promo for his "Ultimate Affiliate Marketing: Step-By-Step Blueprint To Succeeding As An Affiliate Marketer!" report that I discussed in an earlier post.

Ewen's 3rd post is about something called a "Commission Maximizer" page. In a nutshell, it's a tool that he's selling to that is supposed to help you create presell pages for affiliate products you promote. Purchasing it doesn't look like much fun because you've got to jump through different hoops like joining something he calls "Marketing Main Event". In all honesty, this gets a little confusing for me... It all looks very professional and powerful, but there's just too much "gimickry" going on for my taste.

That being said, his post does teach a valuable marketing lesson with a great illustration on the AIDA principle: Attention, Interest, Desire, Action.

The remaining posts include: "How To Find Affiliate Programs In Your Niche", "So What If You’re A Newbie...", "Affiliate Email Copy Formula: How To Create Your Own Sales-Pulling Email Copy For Promoting Affiliate Products Quickly And Easily!" and "Affiliate Blogging Blueprint". It's all solid information that will definitely help striving affiliates make more money if applied.

Additional Training Report #2

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

Additional Training Report #2: "Quick-Start Guide To Google AdWords"

This is an 8 page PDF report that walks you clearly through the process of setting up and launching a Google AdWords advertising campaign.

For your convenience, Ewen also compiled and posted a list of keywords suitable for promoting your Secret Affiliate Weapon affiliate page. He also notes that Google's policy will not all you to promote your Secret Affiliate Weapon affiliate link directly through AdWords so he recommend this tool: http://www.landingpagebuilder.com which is currently available as a free "Donationware" download. It's used for making landing pages that you can use to promote your favorite affiliate products through the pay-per-click search engines. It looks like great recommendation to me.

Ewen wraps up the report with a few Google AdWords do's and dont's.

This report is definitely a good introduction to the world of Google AdWords.

Additional Training Report #2 is the final report available in the Secret Affiliate Weapon membership site right now. Ewen assures us that more reports are on the way with this concluding statement: "This section will be updated regularly".

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

Additional Training Report #1

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

Additional Training Report #1: "Quick-Start Affiliate Profits: How To Promote ANY Affiliate Program For A Surge Of Immediate Profits...Even If You're Starting From Scratch!"

This is the next item on the list inside the Secret Affiliate Weapon membership site.

It's a short 7 page report where you get a few tips on how to build and utilize our own opt-in mailing list, how to use other peoples lists through ezine advertising, how to use list builder and traffic exchanges, how to use pay-per-click advertising, how to do article marketing, how to leverage your existing assets and how to use "thank you" emails to earn back end affiliate profits.

There not really much new information in this report if you read Ewen's first report: "Ultimate Affiliate Marketing: Step-By-Step Blueprint To Succeeding As An Affiliate Marketer!", but it's short condensed package of quick tips that could help you get on the road to success. Of course, he's promoting his preferred traffic programs that he's affiliated with too in there which is just good smart marketing on his part. ;-)

Master Training Blueprint

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

Master Training Blueprint. That's what Ewen dubs his PDF report: "Ultimate Affiliate Marketing: Step-By-Step Blueprint To Succeeding As An Affiliate Marketer!"

Here's what found notable inside the report:

I'm reminded how gifted Ewen is at teaching. He is very articulate and is able to communicate broad concepts efficiently and provide rational examples that make sense to most people. Chapter 1 provides a very good understanding of what affiliate marketing is all about. It's an excellent primer for newbies. In fact, I know a lot of practicing affiliates who need to read that chapter simply because even though they are an affiliate, they don't actually "get" what being an affiliate is all about and why it is one of the most powerful business models in the world.

Chapter 2 really lays it all out there and gets the potential affiliate marketer to really think about and decide whether or not affiliate marketing is the right business for them. Ewen has formulated some solid questions and laid the truth (including potential pitfalls) out on the line for people to make an informed decision about whether or not they should pursue affiliate marketing. I wish I had read this info when I first started out.

Chapter 3 briefly discusses why most affiliates fail to make money and what characteristics allow super affiliates to make obscene amounts of money.

In chapter 4, Ewen outlines the tools necessary for an affiliate marketer to be successful and compares to building a house by saying that you wouldn't build a house without a hammer and nails and to build a successful affiliate marketing business, you'll need the following:

#1: Domain name and web hosting. He also provides some links for registering domain names and hosting accounts at reasonable prices as well as some links for free hosting.

#2: Site templates, HTML editor or basic HTML knowledge. Again, Ewen provides some links where you can pick up each of these things. What I'm seeing is that Ewen isn't trying to sell you something in particular with these links. He's making honest recommendations for products and services he believes are the best options in each particular case whether he is affiliated with the product or not.

#3: Professional autoresponder. In this section, Ewen has put together a comprehensive list of links to free and paid autoresponder solutions as well as explaining why an autoresponder is so important to an affiliate marketing business.

#4: Link tracking and testing software. Again, Ewen provides a solid list of links to potential tracking solutions and a detailed explanation as to why it's important to track your advertising campaigns.

I'm noticing that many of the solutions Ewen links to are products and services that I didn't even know existed. It proves that he's definitely well-informed and has done a lot of research to put this training guide together. Just for the $9.97 it costs to join Ewen's membership site, it's already been money well invested for most people - especially if you're just getting started.

Chapter 5 is an explanation about how to setup a ClickBank account and setup your own Secret Affiliate Weapon affiliate account. He provides EXTREMELY detailed instructions in this chapter including lots of screenshots and step-by-step instructions for getting your affiliate account and referral link setup exactly right. It's poetry really. ;-)

This is where Ewen is really working hard to help you become his affiliate. Brilliant!

Now that you have your Secret Affiliate Weapon affiliate link setup, Ewen takes you by the hand and walks you through the process of launching your own Secret Affiliate Weapon marketing campaign. He's a sly little devil isn't he?! ;-) As I said, it's poetry in motion. I love it!

He teaches you how to launch an ezine advertising campaign, how to use article writing and distribution to promote your website and how to use traffic exchanges like Instant Buzz and Traffic Swarm along with a couple of others to generate visitors and sales. I'm sure he's building a nice downline in both of these traffic exchange programs through this recommendations in this chapter. I personally think Instant Buzz and Traffic Swarm are very effective traffic exchange programs and I see that Ewen shares this opinion.

Further down in the chapter, Ewen continues the momentum and encourages you to setup your advertising accounts with a few more programs that look like they could be effective. He's doing a brilliant job getting people enrolled in all these traffic generating programs through this report... that's for sure. But that's a good thing. You can tell they are sincere recommendations and have the potential to really help people who want to get traffic to their website.

While chapter 6 will all about the "quick fix", chapter 7 starts driving home the long-term marketing activities that you need to be doing to be truly successful as an affiliate marketer including: pay-per-click traffic, viral reports, joint ventures and back end offers. He also makes a point to say that with the exception of pay-per-click traffic, all of these long-term traffic generation methods are essentially free.

The good news is that Ewen definitely doesn't let you down in this chapter. He goes all out and provides about 20 pages of hard-core "how to" detail with no fluff whatsoever. Honestly, people are charging $50 or more for less information than you get in just those 20 pages.

Ewen concludes the chapter by giving you a very solid "Affiliate Maintenance Tasks" checklist that is a very useful group of reminders that will keep any affiliate (new or experienced) on their toes and constantly improving their business. Too many people spend too much time focusing on activities that don't increase their profits. Using Ewen's checklist regularly will really keep you focused and productive in your business which can make all the difference in the world.

And that's the end of Ewen's "Ultimate Affiliate Marketing: Step-By-Step Blueprint To Succeeding As An Affiliate Marketer!" report.

Great job Ewen!

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

OK, I've logged into the Secret Affiliate Weapon member's area.

It's well designed and looks to be very organized. Aside from the navigation links at the top of the page, the first thing that gets my attention is a special offer box that looks about like this:



It's a promotion for a software product that apparently helps you get your email through the spam filters to your prospects. It costs $27 if you want to buy it.

- A very profitable built-in Mega Profits Program where you get to make easy commissions in 3 different ways across 5 hot-selling products at the same time (details below)...

- And more to come!

Alright, let's check everything out...

First on the list is a 56 page training report in PDF format called: "Ultimate Affiliate Marketing: Step-By-Step Blueprint To Succeeding As An Affiliate Marketer!" I'm told I'll discover these things inside the report:

* What affiliate marketing really is – and why it's
one of the best business models around...
* What separates those who make massive profits from
those who never see a single commission...
* What you need long-term in order to really
explode your commissions...
* What to do right now if you're a total newbie, working
on a shoestring budget, with no website and no list...
* How to stay in the game and keep growing and
profiting...

Let me download and read the report and I'll be right back...

Your Secret Affiliate Weapon

This post is part of my review of Ewen Chia's Secret Affiliate Weapon.

My friend and fellow super affiliate, Ewen Chia contacted me a few days ago and offered me a complimentary membership to his Secret Affiliate Weapon membership site.

Click here to review the sales page.

I've known Ewen for several years mostly by reputation. He is widely respected. I have read one of his books and was very impressed with the quality of the material. Today, I'll attempt to walk you through my experience with this Secret Affiliate Weapon membership site.

First off, let's see what the sales letter promises...

In a nutshell, I gather that Ewen is going to reveal some of his most effective affiliate marketing strategies if sign up for his membership site. In addition, he promises to provide me with proven "Copy & Paste" style promotions that I can simply plug-in to my existing marketing campaigns to make some easy profits. His sales letter also says that if I pay $9.97 to join right now, I'll get 500 free visitors to any website I choose.

Additionally, Ewen says that the next 100 members receive a "Quick-Start Affiliate Profits" training guide as a bonus. I personally doubt that bonus is actually reserved for the next 100 members only. In most cases, marketers say something like this to create a sense of urgency, but the bonus usually lasts forever... I can't confirm this is the case with Ewen though. He might be telling the truth.

He also says that the reason for the low $9.97 enrollment price is so that he can collect "Success Stories" and that once he has enough of these, he will convert the site into a monthly recurring membership site. That sounds reasonable enough.

OK, so we pay $9.97. What do we actually get?

Let me login to my Secret Affiliate Weapon account and find out. My next post will give you more details...

The Mother of All Bribes

Brilliant collaborative marketing is on the prowl again with:

http://www.TheMotherOfAllBribes.com

Famed Internet marketer, Mark Joyner is selling his new book, "The Irresistible Offer". True to form, he's created one incredible offer for everyone who buys it.

Let's examine the mechanics of what is going on here...

Mark wants to sell his book so it can become an overnight bestseller. So he contacted everyone in his Internet marketing network and asked them to contribute a bonus to his package - something that could be given away free to everyone who purchases his new book.

Mark has done a heck of a job compiling a huge list of digital products and services you receive free when you buy "The Irresistible Offer" book. Apparently, all of these bonuses are offered for a fee somewhere else on the Internet.

It's a win-win-win. Mark wins because he gets to offer his potential customers more value. His customers win because they receive more for their money and the contributors win because they get free exposure due to all of the people who will be visiting Mark's site and accessing the bonus package.

And if you buy 25 books you also get "One email consultation with Mark Joyner (he'll answer any marketing question or challenge you have)".

Buy 100 books and you also get: "A one hour live telephone consultation with Mark Joyner".

Buy 500 books and you also get: "Mark Joyner visits you live for a full day of Consulting and Coaching (you provide first class air fare and lodging)"

Hmmm.... I might have to take him up on that last offer.

Anyway, it sure beats what Barnes & Noble or Amazon are giving you when you buy the book directly from them... Indeed, it just may be "The Mother of All Bribes".

Personally, I'm not really interested in the book or the bonuses right now. I have many books in my library that I still have not finished reading and what in the world am I going to do with all those bonuses? Nothing.

But Mark is a brilliant marketer and a gifted teacher. I applaud him for the success he is having with his latest project and expect we will all see many more great things from him in the future.

What can you learn from "The Mother of All Bribes"?

Simple. Whenever you're creating an offer, pack so much value into it that it's virtually impossible for someone to say no. Go above and beyond the call of duty. Exceed everyone's expectations.

A word of caution...

Be capable of delivering exactly what you are offering and more or don't offer anything at all.

There are several occasions in my own history where I over-promised and under-delivered. It was very damaging to my credibility. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Over-deliver on every promise you ever make and money, success, happiness and all things good will beat a path to your front door.

Pixels, Copycats & Innovation

I mentioned The Million Dollar Home Page yesterday. That site was the first of it's kind. But do to it's instantaneous and enormous success, hundreds of copycat sites appeared within weeks of it's launch... Here's just a few of those copycat sites:

http://www.moneypantsdreampage.com
http://www.millionpixelvalley.com
http://www.pixelbay.org
http://www.milliondollardonation.org
http://www.freemillionpixels.com/

There's even a software now that helps you make your own pixel ad site:

http://pixelad-site-generator.com

The pixel revolution is on!

Or is it?...

Personally, I doubt that anyone will have near the success peddling pixels that Alex Tew from The Million Dollar Home Page has enjoyed. He was the first and he did such a good job marketing the site and being professional about the whole process that he garnered the world's attention. Nobody else will be able to repeat the success of The Million Dollar Home Page.

Remember, Alex didn't pay to advertise his site. He was first to do it and the world beat a path to his door just so they could find out what was going on...

Now all these other pixel ad site are advertising to attract advertisers. Check out all the sponsored links you see in this Google search for pixel advertising: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=pixel+advertising Those guys are paying money every time you click a link to get to their pixel advertising site. For most, it will be a losting proposition.

That being said, there still may be some value in pixel advertising.

I did make a purchase on another pixel advertising site yesterday. It's over at: http://www.onebillionviews.com

I did this for a couple of reasons... First off, the guy who created the site is a Warrior and I support Warriors. Plus, he was offering a 30% rebate on the cost of his ads through the Warrior Special Offer Forum. That's a place where Warriors gather to offer great deals to each other.

The other reason I bought advertising from that site is because he took the pixel concept and twisted it a little bit to create something unique. I appreciate innovation and the energy it took for the guy to come up with his concept so I supported him with my business. Also, I know he's working hard to get traffic to the site and even if I just get a few visitors back to my site, my $23 (- 30% for being a Warrior) investment will pay for itself many times over.

So the pixel revolution may be full steam ahead, but it's the innovators in the pack that you should pay attention to, not the wannabes...

Who says you can't get rich quick?

On August 26th, 2005, a 21 year old young man named Alex Tew started a website to raise money for college.

3 months later he's earned over $700,000 from that single website... Check it out here: http://www.MillionDollarHomePage.com

Then read Alex's blog which chronicles his epic journey from startup to where he is now: http://milliondollarhomepage.com/blog.php

The Million Dollar Home Page is a great concept, but the real brilliance behind it is how it was marketed. Alex promoted his site through 100% free methods: word of mouth and the press!

Check out his press page here to see all the stories that have been written about Alex and his Million Dollar Home Page: http://milliondollarhomepage.com/press.php

How can you leverage the same power Alex used to launch his site in your business?

Easy. Determine what is unique about your business and write up a press release about it. Next, head over to: http://www.PRWeb.com and submit your press release. Then wash, rinse and repeat until you have all the press and business you can handle.

Trust me, it's much easier than you think to get the press talking about you and your business. In truth, they need your story. It's just a matter of giving it to them.

Before I became "The Home Biz Guy", I was in the restaurant business. I had popular a health and vegetarian restaurant in Dallas, Texas. At that time, I would simply email section editors from different local newspapers and magazines and tell them what was unique about me and my restaurant. Before I knew it, I had press all over the place taking pictures and writing stories about me... I was dubbed the "Veggie Guru".

You can use the power of the press to grow your business too. Stop being so impressed with what other people are doing and get impressed about yourself.

You have a story that the world wants to hear. Go tell it!

Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy

P.S. I bought 2600 pixels from Alex myself. See if you can find my ads on The Million Dollar Home Page... I've got 3 of them. ;-)

Get excited and stick with a plan... ANY plan

This whole making money on the Internet thing really fascinates me...

I wake up every morning with a renewed sense of curiosity and excitement about the possibilities ahead.

Making money online is easy. Finding the time to do everything that can be done to make more money online is the only real challenge.

The fact is, there are so many different ways to make money online that it's easy to get distracted. This is actually one of the biggest stumbling blocks for people who get online in hopes of making money... They jump around too much.

If you're interested in eBay, pick up a course that teaches you how to make money on eBay and stick with it until you've figured it out. If you're seeking residual income, join a reputable online MLM and follow the plan until you reach your goal. If you want to receive checks from Google every month, grab a course on Google's AdSense program and apply the steps within it until you are making money consistently.

The point is just to stick with something... anything. It's pretty difficult to fail if you just stick with something until you've figured out how to succeed. Think about it...

Welcome to the Dotcomology blog

This is my first post in the new Dotcomology blog. I anticipate keeping a regular journal of ideas and experiments here related to making money online.

Consider the Dotcomology blog as the stream of consciousness version of the book. I will aim to keep you updated with the latest strategies for making money online here in this blog.

Truth is, the Internet is always changing. While I've done my personal best to pack everything you might need to know to start making money online into the 325 page Dotcomology ebook, new methods and opportunities for making money online are constantly emerging. I intend to do a lot of experimentation in the months ahead and will share as much as I can with you.
