Internet Business Ė How to Make Real Money
By Peter Dobler
We all are in search of the silver bullet that will put our business on
autopilot and the only thing we have to do is to cash the checks. Arenít you
looking for this as well? Isnít this the reason why youíre actually reading
all these articles, including this one? Youíre hoping to find the one tool,
the surefire method, the hidden trick or the magic system that will make
your dreams come true.
Once again I have to disappoint you. There is no such thing as a silver
bullet that will magically run your business while you sit back and relax.
If there would be one, why is everybody trying to sell you the next big
thing or the breakthrough that will make you rich and you wonít need to
chase the magic system anymore?
Are you as confused as I am? You bet. Without clear definition of exactly
what you are trying to do, there will be no answers. What does rich mean to
you? What exactly will the next big thing solve for you? It sure means
something different to you than it does to me. The only thing we all have in
common is that we all strive to achieve our personal financial freedom.
Sorry for getting off topic here. You still want to know how to make real
money with an Internet business, donít you? Instead of repeating marketing
material over and over again I will tell you how I make real money with my
First, you need a product and a website to sell your product. Iím a member
of several clubs that offer new tools and books with master resale rights
every month. This means that I can sell these products and keep 100% of the
profit. I also have full control over the sales letter. This is very
important. You set the price and you can add any bonus material you want to.
You also need somebody to process the credit card payments. My choices are
PayPal and 2Checkout.
Ok, now you have a killer sales web site and youíre ready for business.
Unfortunately nobody knows that youíre open for business and the spider nets
are starting to grow on your front door. What you need is traffic. Lotís of
it. After experimenting with all kind of traffic exchange programs I can
honestly say, they donít work. You need something more powerful.
This is exactly what I do every time I create a new web site for e new
product Iím promoting. I put an ad on the major pay-per-click engines like
Google, Oveture, 7search and FindWhat. This gives my business a jump start.
Next I create doorway pages for the new web site and promote them to the
search engines through a blog. Search engines will index your pages much
faster when you have a link to them from a blog. Never submit your sales web
site directly to any search engines. You will get much higher rankings if
they find you.
I also make sure that I place an unblockable popup window on every doorway
page to sign up for my newsletter. This way I capture at least the email
addresses of my visitors. Also several Google AdSense windows will give me a
little kick back.
To make it even more profitable, on the thank you page for the newsletter
subscription I give away free stuff with lots of references to other web
sites of mine and I make the subscriber aware that the real good stuff to
download is hidden in an email. If they gave me a fake email just to
download the free software it wonít work. But at least they download the
free promo material. My stats showing me that this is working. I always make
sure that the free stuff Iím giving away has viral marketing built in. It
needs to reproduce itself without any intervention from my part.
This doesnít look like a lot, but after setting up over 10 sales web sites
the system is gaining momentum. After a while I will drop the pay-per-click
advertising and the system supports itself with enough visitors to make a
Ok, youíre absolutely right. This is a lot of work. However, do the math.
Letís say you create a new sales web site every month. After 6 months you
break even with the initial setup cost and the startup pay-per-click costs.
After that youíre making net profits. Letís also say youíre making $200 a
month in profits. Not much, but realistic. After just one year you have 12
sales web sites up and running and they produce $2400 a month in profits.
Would you walk away from a business like this? Hell no.
Bottom line if you want to get rich quick you need to go to Vegas. If you
want to start a serious Internet business you might want to follow my
strategy. This works for me, chances are that it will work for you too. If
you really want to push this system to the limits simply create an affiliate
program on top of it and your profits will go through the roof.
