I’m going to reveal to you the magic formula that I’ve been using to make thousands of dollars on auto-pilot every single week… without a product, a website or even a list.
Several years ago I stumbled into the world of affiliate marketing and it seemed like a sure-fire way to make money (especially as I didn’t have a product of my own).
My ‘fool-proof’ plan, was to find people interested in specific subjects and promote related affiliate products to them. Sounds simple enough, right?
Boy was I in for a shock! Selling other peoples products is a LOT more difficult than I expected… and very expensive!
I blew thousands on advertising and never sold a thing. Then I had an amazing idea that changed my life.
Up to this point I’d been doing exactly the same as every one else. I was sending out emails, placing adverts and paying for Adsense to try to convince people to buy something.
I’d been making a killer mistake, and it was crippling my business before I even got started. I needed a radical change in my approach… and that’s when I stumbled into one of the most powerful secrets to make money online…
I decided to focus all of my efforts on giving people as much value as I could. I set up email lists with free courses, created a stack of free ebooks and scoured the internet everyday looking for news stories that my followers might enjoy.
I wanted to give them as much as value as possible before I asked them to buy. I’d recently learned about a powerful psychological technique called ‘The Law of Reciprocity’ which basically says that when you do something nice for someone, they will have a deep-rooted psychological urge to do something nice in return.
This made a lot sense to me, and I knew it was the key factor for success in online marketing. If I could provide massive value for my followers, they’d be much more likely to buy a product.
Even though I didn’t have my own product I knew I could make money as an affiliate by recommending somebody else’s. In fact, this would be even better because I wouldn’t have to deal with the customer directly. All I needed to do was share my affiliate link.
I set up my first ‘Reciprocity Business’ targeting people interested in hypnosis. I gathered together plenty of valuable content and gave it to my followers. Then I put the law of reciprocity into action and sent them my affiliate link for a popular hypnosis course.
This was a genius move! Lots of my followers purchased the course, and I made a very generous $97 for every single sale…
Giving your followers something of value before you ask for a sale is a very powerful way to make money.
You select a target market and give them something of value that they’ll love. Then you recommend a product using an affiliate link…. when they buy the product you get paid!
When I first started doing this, I was giving away ebooks, but I later discovered that ANY value would work. Even a quick Tweet with a quote or an affirmation was enough. This discovery saved my a huge amount of time and money. I could easily collect lots of ‘Pieces of value’ for any niche market and use them to help make money from my affiliate links.
The system works because of the law of Reciprocity. It’s a psychologically proven formula for making money. That’s why it’s so powerful.
With absolutely no more effort, you can transform your affiliate links into virtual cash machines that pump more and more money into your pocket every single month.
Remember the hypnosis course that I recommended to my followers? Well that course also invites readers to sign up to a membership program.
There’s no limit to how many people can sign up. If ten people sign up you get $470 every month, if one hundred people sign up you get $4,700 every month! Just for sharing a link!
This incredible passive income comes from just one link. Imagine how much money you will make when you share hundreds of links like this!
Giving away valuable information, and then sharing an affiliate link, is a VERY effective way to make lots of money.
However, when I first started to do this I underestimated how much work was involved in providing all the free content. I was doing everything the hard way, and spending hours sat at my computer gathering as much value as I could find.
The system worked really well and I was making good money. I was even able to quit my day job as a mortgage advisor, but I was spending so much time on the system that I may as-well have stayed at work!
I became obsessed with one specific goal. My goal was to find a way to automate EVERYTHING! I wanted my business to run itself.
My ideal business strategy is to do the work once, and get paid forever. And I was determined to find a way to make it happen.
I learned how to program PHP code and set up a MySQL database to automatically generate RSS feeds. I used the feeds to trigger automation systems that could run my business on Auto-Pilot.
Creating a system to run the business for me was incredibly complicated and a lot of work. But don’t worry, you don’t even need to copy what I’ve done, because you can use what I’ve created.
Even if you’re a completely newbie and know nothing at all about making money online, you can use this system to quickly and easily set up a fully automated online business TODAY… A business that will RUN ITSELF and provide you with a TOTALLY PASSIVE… Read more…
