Interesting The "Secrets" To Beginner's Success ...

A lot of beginners get caught in the minor technical details, analysis paralysis, and other pit falls that they NEVER get started (or worse, jumping from one project to the next, and never get the momentum going)

Here's are my beginner tips, so you can make a stack of cash and hump the strippers at your local club.

The Most Overlooked Marketing Facts!

Internet Marketing is no different from a brick and mortar business. It all start with ONE converting offer, and visitors. Someone infamous once said (Ryan Eagles?): "get converting offers, get visitors, get paid. Bitch".

Hint: Making a living off IM is simply duplicating your success in different niches - once you got a system in place.

Simply put:

Converting Offer + Potential Customer = Profit

Don't try to over complicate things. Beginners (99 percent of IMers are guilty of this at one point or another) over complicate shit with tools, programs, techinques, push button systems etc ... when all you really need is a GOOD landing page, and traffic.

(Later on you can build authority sites, production and service creations, and all that jazz ...)

The Million Dollar Advice For Beginners

Learn to write persuasively (copywriting).

If you're a complete beginner, I recommend you read "Tested Advertising Methods" by John Caples. It's a classic. If it's the ONLY marketing book I read, that would be it.

Learn the fundamentals like writing a great headline, story telling, pounding the benefits, creating curiosity and handling buyer's objections. The basic, fundamentals - it's not sexy. But it works.

After that, read GREAT sales letter. I recommend reading the sales letter of DesperateBuyersOnly.com and Thelazymarketer.com/confessions/page2.htm

(Don't buy the products - READ the sales letters)

Dissect the sales letter apart and learn how they piece the components to make the sales letter flow.

(For example, DesperateBuyersOnly.com opens up with a great headline, show of proof, compelling opening story etc. Look near the end how she handles buyer's objection - pretty clever shit)

Now write your mock-up salescopy and model it after DesperateBuyersOnly.com's sales copy.

You know how to get good? Practice. You know how to get even better? Model the best. You can always "develop" your unique writing style later on.

My most used copy writing techniques:


- Write short sentences using simple words. Your vocabulary shouldn't be more complex then the local Sunday newspaper.

- Use action verbs and colorful adjectives. Studies prove that people are more prone to buy when they're "emotionally stirred up". (Make your writings rile people up like a Martin Luther King speech)

- Tell, not sell. Nothing repels people more then a try-hard sales man. Educate like a church Peacher and watch your conversion sky rocket.

- Market to the "Mass". People want easy, push action solutions. That explains why infomercials only sell push button, instant solutions. Tell the people it requires hard work, determination or sweat - and watch your conversion rate would drop faster then you can scream "FUCK!".

- Boil your ideas into the essence. Short sentences make you sound more confident and authoritative. People will BUY whatever you recommend if you're a confident leader. (Think John Chow, LOL)

Habits That Makes You Money

Spend 1 hour EVERYDAY copy writing.

Sure - you may suck at first but practice makes perfect.

I recently read this book called "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olsen. Basically it's a marketing twist to the old proverb "A thousand mile journey starts with the first step ..."

If you spend a measly 1 hour a day, by the end of the year you've put 365 hours into developing your copywriting skills. You'll become relatively good.

How To Put This Into Practice

Write emails and add it to your list. I made a stack of money selling Acai Berries to my diet list. (Using "free" traffic, but that's for another post)

For example, say you merely write 2 emails per day and load it on your autoresponder - you'll have 14 emails by the end of this week. That's a great start to a profitable email campaign.

(Now imagine writing 120 emails PER list. That's what I'm doing - hitting that bitch up with good content and tons of product recommendations. 1 year worth of emails per list - think of the dollar value PER subscriber. If you want to make more money, it's worth the extra mile)

How To Start Making Money Tonight

You can start with PPC if you got the money, otherwise take the low start-up approach: WEB HOST + AUTORESPONDER.

Start building your email list in "ever green" markets, like dating, golf, parenting, making money, marketing etc.

Hint: Specialize in niches, like "Dating Asian Chicks For Guys With Yellow Fever", or "Parenting for Single Moms" or "Make Money Online For People Over 40".

Start writing email follow ups (at LEAST a dozen to start) with good content and affiliate promotions.

Once you got a profitable email campaign running, it's only a matter of feeding your list with subscribers. It's the grand daddy of "hands off" income if you do it right.

If you haven't add email marketing to your arsenal, you're missing out.

It's like bedding a chick through sheer determination. Hit her up with multiple contacts, and she'll remove her panties for you sooner or later ...

Like wise, a subscriber WILL buy you from you if you send them enough emails with good content (and affiliate promotions of course)

As XMCP (WF Mod) said, "Whether or not we like to admit it, email marketing is in many ways the granddaddy of internet marketing(in my opinion)." (How Do Different Internet Marketing Skills Cross Over? : Slightly Shady SEO)

Massage my back, I'll massage yours (no homo)

No, I don't got an ebook, coaching program, or phone consultation to sling. However, I'll give you:

1. A converting opt in template (good for any niche)

2. Email subject line swipe files (get them to open your emails like a champ)

3. Profitable email templates I use for ALL my emails (just fill in the blanks, no need to think hard)

4. I'll look over your email promos and give pointers (important if you're starting out)

So - if you don't have an autoresponder ($20 a month) yet, PM me and sign up through my referral link, and I'll send ya the package.

I'm trying to get my aweber referrals up, damn it. (How else am I suppose to support my 19 years old, stripper fiend that works downtown. Looks alot like the chick in my avatar)

This is very solid advice.

Particularly about having the discipline to write everyday.


btw - as a heads up on Aweber - you can choose single or double opt-in.

Comforting news Amanda. Thanks. You take my virginity as this is my first post on WickedFire. In fact my first post on any forum. Lucky you!

Yes I'm stating out from nothing. Hardly know one end of a keyboard from a mouse but . . . people tell me there's cash to be made in IM, and cash is what I need right now.

Where to start. First off, I've tried Adam Horwitz' Mobile Monopoly so I got signed up on AWeber, ClickBank, PeerFly and AdMob . . . followed his process; got thousands of impressions a few hundred clicks and no emails to follow up on.

Amanda says try one process and stick to it till you get it right.

Am I doing the right thing?

thanks for the tip

This is my first post here. I am starting as an IM and I just got my domains.

I guess I have to start with articles because I don't have a lot of money.

any help along the way would be good.

On the up side I live on a mountain in Costa Rica...I could be doing this all day and night.

I have found alot of free resources on the net, but it would help alot to hear about everyone's first days gettin started, especially from zero.

that would be cool.

I would recommend using the blog for subs to your list (hint: use "pop over" optins) and then use a 1 page sale letter type for affiliate promotions + at least 5 email follow ups per product promotion.

Collect the lead first, sell them second.

Can you elaborate on this, what is the difference between telling and selling? What style of writing makes it look like you are trying too hard to sell as opposed to just telling them good information?

I am actually in the process of starting my own email lists and campaigns soon, I should probably just sign up under your affil link then take advantage of your offers

Telling: Losing weight using Acai Berry isn't hard - in conjunction with daily walks, substituting soda with water, and cutting down on the the junk food. Acai Berry can give you the extra "boost" to losing weight. Click here to visit their official website >> (They're offering free samples, I heard)

Selling: If you want to lose weight, definitely take Acai Berry! Losing 12 pounds in 7 days isn't hard with Acai Berry (they got magical, ancient formulas in the pill that instantly melt the fat right off your bones). I tried it, my mom tried it, and they all sez 'Oh mah god ... it works". To order your some Acai Berries right now, click here >>

Be a reporter, not a salesman.

I've been in IM (full time) for several years and it makes me sick how much time and energy I've wasted over complicating things. It has cost me so much money it sucks and it is still a hard fucking habit to break, but I am getting better and much better then I used to be.

I love this:

Let's just not tell them that "with daily walks, substituting soda with water, and cutting down on the the junk food" would work pretty damn well as well. LOL... Cuz you need da berries

Damn. Tons of nuggets. Bought 'Tested Advertising Methods' based on your recommendation and it's blowing my mind. Even more so that the first edition was written in 1932. Thanks for taking the time to share.

Unfortunately many newbies keep reading, reading and reading some more for 1-2-3-4 years.

I know people who took action after 2 months of reading and they were already raking in 3k - 4k / month (article marketing first but hey, hard work pays off!). I'll direct him to this page and tell to sign in to aweber under you. Leaving money on the table isn't nice!

Quick question... How exactly do you suggest on building the email list with hardly any traffic? I have aweber setup, but if I don't have traffic, no one is signing up.

Thanks in advanced.

I recommend article marketing if you're a complete beginner. After you see some signups / conversions on what you're promoting, get some more traffic with your own BLOG. Then re-invest the money into buying traffic (PPC, banners purchase etc)

A small tip from personal experience. After you have put anything up, your website, new autoresponder, etc. Test, test and then test again to make sure everything is working properly and you are telling your visitors a consistent message.
I just found some mistakes in my spanking brand new site. Oh well, lets see what happens when I fix them.

Thanks for the advice. I bought the book just now on Amazon. You should have an affiliate link to that book (if it's allowed by WF).

Good post here i quite agree with. When i was starting online as a beginner, i jumped from products to products trying to find the perfect route to making consistent income. But now, that's all story having found the right way to making consistent cash online without jumping here and there.

For me the #1 secret to a beginner's success is building a list. Not just a list, but a profitable one.

The One Undercover Step You Must Take to Build HUGE, Highly Profitable Email Lists - FAST!
You can see it here How I Raised Myself From Failure To Success In Converting One-time Visitors To Hungry Buyers

Hope this helps!
