Today I am going to be completely honest with you. This whole online business thing can be difficult to understand and very frustrating.
In fact, it can take an absolute excitable business opportunist and create a MAD MARKETER out of them.
So what is a MAD MARKETER?
A MAD Marketer is someone who can follow three basic principles and this is where the “MAD” acronym is derived from:
M - MotivationA - ActionD - Dedication
To succeed online, you don’t need some secret potion or need to pay some expensive guru thousands of bucks to get some business advice.
The first thing you need is some form of Motivation. Whether your motivation is money, to help others out, the quit your job, to take your kids to Disneyland, to help out a sick family member, or otherwise...we all have some aspect of MOTIVATION that we can leverage. Something that I like to do before I start any business is to write down exactly what my motivation is...and sometimes I may have several. You should do the same.
What Motivates You? Record it.
The second thing you need is the ability to take Action. All our lives we are taught to get educated. Get our schooling. Learn something. But something they never tell you is that a good portion of the education takes place when you take ACTION on what you learn. To give you an example of this, you could read a book on “how to play the guitar” all day, but until you actually pick up an actual guitar and start playing it you will not gain the necessary skills to become a successful guitar player.
The same thing goes on within the business world. If you want to make money on the Internet, you need to be willing to take action. In other words, DO what you LEARN. This will lead to great success.
Lastly, and just as important, you need Dedication. Without investing time and energy into any business, you are going to fail. Sorry to be blunt, but you don’t hear success stories of people that sat on their couch eating popcorn and made millions (not any real ones anyway).
Think of it this way. If you can dedicate a mere fraction of the time you do to your day job, to your online business, you will reap much greater rewards.
OK, now that we got that cleared up, it is time for ME to show YOU how to make money online. I am going to show you how to do it for FREE and I am also going to make some strong recommendations and give you actionable plans along the way that will lead to success.
In the coming training, I am going to explain the exact techniques:
- Understanding how the heck to make money online
- Finding HOT programs that pay you over and over
- The ONE question you need to ask yourself to succeed
- Write like a superstar, without an English degree
- Easy ways to get back-links to boost your rankings in Google
- Biting into your own chunk of the Internet real estate
- How to Think YOURSELF Successful
- Reworking your goals for a thriving Internet Business
- How the “gurus” scale their business using other peoples time
- And a “boat load” more highly valuable material
- Your task for lesson 1 is to make a list of what motivates you? Why are you taking the Mad Marketing Method course? What brought you to this page to read this sentence? Make a list on a piece of paper so that you can look at it in the future to remind yourself why you are dedicating the time to work though Mad Marketing Method.
Lesson 2- Learn How the Heck People Make Money Online!
Before you can make money online you need to know how the process works! In this lesson you are going to learn exactly how easy it is to earn money online. You will begin taking action immediately and be well on your way to earning that first sale!
How the Heck do People Make Money Online?Is there some secret to making money online?
Do you need some special technical training, an IQ that has Harvard knocking at your doorstep...maybe a GURU course that costs you $1000’s to learn from?
New marketing techniques come at you every day. Twitter this. Facebook that. Google this. Bing that. Website this. Blog that. PPC. CPA. CPC.
Geez...talk about confusing.
This is enough to even make the most calculated, genius-type person go crazy. Internet marketing is much simpler than this. MAD Marketing Method is going to teach you some core principles and show the an EXACT method YOU can follow to earn money online.
This is a free technique and this will be a technique that you can build any size of online business you want out of!
One thing that many people get confused about is how you can actually make money online.
Making money online DOES NOT require:
- your own product
- a degree in computers
- some special secret technique
- special writing skills
- a lot of money!
You have been probably mislead in the past into think that you need some crazy website, some expensive marketing program, some super lucrative niche, and an English degree in order to succeed.
However, this is simply not the case with the MAD MARKETING METHOD. This method requires only three things out of you:
1. Computer (ability to connect to the Internet)
2. Fingers (the ability to type)
3. Drive & Motivation (the ability to work hard)
Do you have these three things? Cool...we are good to go!
Here is the how you are going to be making money using the MAD Marketing Technique:
Find -> Write -> Submit -> EarnThat's all it takes to have the ability to earn a consistent living online. Obviously this is going to be explained in more detail as I go on, but this is the core of it.
This lesson I am going to get you to do is very simple. It is to register for a FREE account at Street Articles, and article submission and authoring site. You will be leveraging this directory over the coming lessons to submit your articles and earn a bunch of money, so please take the time to do this now.

Lesson 3- Picking a niche actually a HOBBY!
Choosing a niche is the first step to building a high converting income generating campaign. You are about to learn exactly how to find a niche, or shall I say niches...
Picking a niche...actually, a HOBBY!If you are not having fun doing something and you don’t get excited about the niche you are promoting, then it will be much harder to achieve success.
I know this goes against the conventional "job" criteria that people can typically relate to, but earning a living online should be fun. When you are having fun, your potential for success goes up 10 fold!
So how do you have fun?The first thing that I suggest to you is choosing a niche that you are interested in. People tend to worry so much about having the perfect niche (or the most profitable one), when the reality of success online roots from your passion towards what you are doing.
If you hate sports, why would you try to promote sports online...because someone tells you it is hot? Knitting or Scrap booking or Flying Kites may be more your cup of tea. Maybe you like baseball, college basketball. Maybe you like everything about dieting and weight loss. Maybe you like shoes? Maybe you like collecting bugs. Maybe you like surfing.
Heck, “smoking” is a niche. Stopping this bad habit is also a niche!
So your step today is to write down 3 niches/industries that you are interested in and that you would enjoy writing about. In other words, what are your hobbies.
I am interested in #1: _________________I will give you a second before I move on here, so grab a pen and paper right now and WRITE THESE down. This will be your starting point for implementing the Mad Marketing Method (MMM)!
I am interested in #2: _________________
I am interested in #3: _________________
If you are still banging your head against the wall at this point, go to DMOZ.org. There are literally 10,000’s of niches there for you to look through.
Remember, you can always change a niche if you get sick of it or you simply can’t make a go with it, so this is not “your last attempt”. In fact, it should be exciting and help you realized the massive amounts of ideas and opportunities there are out there.
- Record THREE niches you are interested in (WRITE THEM DOWN)
Lesson 4- Picking a Niche Actually A Hobby!
Keywords connect you with people who want to buy online. Each time someone does a search in a search engine like Google, they are looking for something. Keywords allow you to connect with these people. Powerful stuff here.
Grab Yourself a Couple of KeywordsOK, this is where some people like to get all worked up. I am hoping to really simplify the topic of "keywords" for you. What the heck is a keyword, why is it important, and how do you find good ones?
Without being technical (I know we all try to over-complicating things), here is my definition of a keyword:
A term that a person types in when doing a search in Google, Yahoo, Bing or another search engine.
What are some of the latest searches you did in Google? These searches are “keywords”.
Keywords are important because depending on the type of keyword someone types into a search, they may be looking to buy something...also known as a qualified customer.
So how do you qualify a keyword before you spend time writing an article about it?
PUT YOURSELF IN YOUR CUSTOMERS' SHOES!
Fill in the following blanks.
If I was looking to ______________, I would probably do a search like _____________ in Google.
Here are a couple of examples:
If I was looking to lose weight before summer, I would probably search for something like "ways to lose weight quickly" in Google.
If I was looking to clear up my acne, I would probably search for something like "how to get rid of pimples" in Google.
So this is your first step with your keyword research. Think of keywords by putting yourself in your customers shoes. You should easily be able to come up with at least 10 keywords for each of the 3 "interests" you wrote down from the last lesson.
If not, I have another easy 3-step way for you to come up with "qualified" keywords.
Step 1: Type a broad keyword in to the Google Keyword Tool.
An example of a broad keyword is "dog training", "skin care", "scrap booking", "weight loss", "college baseball", “surfing”, or "shoes". Let's look at “surfing”.
We want to start really broad with our keyword research, so we are going with the keyword "surfing", here are what some of the results will look like:
Step 2: Go more relevant
Take one of the keywords from the search results, in this case "surfing lessons", and go even more relevant.
I have quickly come up with a list of relevant search terms. These would all be good keywords for targeting within your article writing (which we are going to get into in the next lesson).
maui surf lessons
surf lessons maui
surfing lessons maui
surfing lessons waikiki
tofino surfing lessons
These searches get 1,000's of hits every month in Google alone!
Step 3: Do step 1 & 2 until you have a list of 10 keywords for each "interest". For example, I could type “surf camp” or “how to surf” into the keyword tool and come up with another whole set of relevant keywords.
Here are some guidelines to you can follow when choosing a GOOD KEYWORD:
- Must be 3+ words in length
- Must be relevant to your niche
- Makes SENSE from a customer standpoint
- Make a list of 10 “niche relevant” keywords for each of the three niches you have chosen. You will be using these keywords in the next lessons so don't skip this step.
Lesson 5- Ready, Set, Get Excited and WRITE!
Are you excited? Now that you've found 3 Niches, and have a list of keywords relevant to your keywords, you can get to the fun stuff and write your first article! You are about to learn exactly how you do that.
Ready, Set, Get Excited and WriteAlright, you should have a list of at least 10 keywords at this point. Congratulations because this is a big achievement and one crucial part of the Internet marketing process!
Your next step in the process is the WRITE (or should i say type) as mentioned in lesson 2. You need to spend a few minutes writing an article specifically targeting one of your keywords.
This is typically in the form of an 450-550 word article.
You do not need to be an expert in the English Language...in fact, if you have read anything interesting online lately, chances are it was written in the style of a blogger (hip and cool).
You do not need to be able to write like an author would in the Wall Street Journal or within the New York Times newspaper!
I know what kind of articles earn people large sums of money. They are ones that are interesting and sound like a friend wrote them to you in an email, not like they were taken out of a newspaper.
The reason for this is because people online are becoming accustomed to this type of language. Look at how people write in facebook, on twitter, or within their latest blog posts. They write as though they are speaking to you versus being like some textbook that puts you to sleep in college.
So, I don't want to hear any excuses about any of you not being able to write. At the bare minimum, write as though you would be writing a letter to a friend.
Since you will be writing about something you enjoy, you will be able to come up with ideas and content for articles rather quickly.
I am first going to tell you how to write an article, and in the next step I am going to show you exactly.
Quick and Easy ways to get ideas for the article content
People always say... "I can't think of 450-550 words to write about". If you are saying this right now then I have some easy ways for you to put together an article. Each article should be around 6 paragraphs in length. Here is an outline of an article:
Paragraph 1: What you are going to talk about
Paragraph 2-5: Topics relevant to your keyword
Paragraph 6: What you just talked about
Don't be too worried about having perfect content. You can always change it later and it is almost better not to be perfect. Perfectionists don't make the most money...you will never get something perfect the first time...and if you over-think things you will only waste time.
What you should understand are the 3 main writing rules that you need to follow when writing your article:
- Have around 5 instances of your target keyword within the article
- Have the keyword within the title & headline of your article
- Write as though you would send a letter to your friend
Here are a couple of example articles:
Or you can simply go to the StreetArticles.com directory and take a peak at some of the top articles.
So where do you get content ideas? A few places work well for me and speed up the time to write an article drastically. An article shouldn't take you any longer than 30 minutes...and that includes the research!
For research on related topics go to:
Google.com (great for finding any information)
Dmoz.org (great for relevant content/ideas)
Wikipedia.com (great for facts)
eHow.com (great for questions people ask)
- Write a 450-550 word article based on ONE of your keywords. Note: Your first article will not be perfect...and that is perfectly OK! :)Lesson 6- Submit Your Article!
Submitting your article is something that will become second nature to you. In this lesson I teach you where to submit your article and WHY it is so important you submit to the right directory.
Submitting Your ArticleBefore I tell you the why, I am going to get you to do something here. If you haven't done so already, go grab yourself a free StreetArticles.com account. You will need an account to complete this lesson:
Now for WHY I am getting you to “write articles” in the first place.
By signing-up to Streetarticles.com, you are gaining the ability to post articles on their website. The reason this is really powerful is that they have spent a good deal of time, money and resources on getting their site ranked high within Google and other search engines. The site gets a ton of traffic!
This is an excellent trade off for both you and Street Articles.
By placing your content on your site you get to benefit from the article directory’s hard work. You get to get listed under keywords that would typically take months, if not years to naturally SEO (optimize) into these search engines if you tried to do it with your own website.
But why would they want you to post content on their site? Because they get paid from ads that run along side your articles. This is absolutely an excellent trade off.
Since your articles will be getting ranked, you will be getting traffic under those keywords. This in turn allows you to link from your article to offers of your choice (discussed next lesson). This can equate to large sums of money, for some article marketers, several $100,000 per year!
The next step I am going to get you to do is SUBMIT your article. To do this, you will need to login to your StreetArticles.com account.
Upon logging in, you may want to update or create another Pen/Author Name. To do this, you will click the Manage Authors link.
You can make this anything you like, ideally you want to make a First & Last Name, and maybe a middle initial as well. You can also have multiple Author Names. The reason for this is that you may want to brand yourself differently within many different niches. You can also create your author bio associated with the name.
Example of Author Names: Mad A. Marketer, Jane Doe, etc.
The next thing you want to do is submit that actual article you wrote. To do this, click the “Publish Article” link.
Then you will want to follow through the process (as shown below):
The fields are as follows:
Author: Choose the Pen Name you want to associate with the article
Category: Choose the most appropriate category for the article
Sub Category: Choose the most appropriate subcategory for the article
Title: This should start off with your exact keyword. For example, if my search term was “surfing lesson in maui”, this is what I would probably put as my “title”.
"Surfing Lesson in Maui - Learn how to surf in beautiful Hawaii"
Article Link: You can just let this automatically create itself
Summary: A quick overview of what you are going to talk about in your upcoming article
Keywords: The target keyword, along with article keywords associated with the article. Example of my surfing keyword would be: surfing lesson in maui, maui surfing lesson, surfing lesson
Article Body: Where your article goes
Author Bio: Disregard this for now. It is where you are going to be able to “make money” next lesson.
Then you will want to submit your article. It goes into moderation after you submit it. This is to make sure your article is unique and is appropriate content. Articles usually get approved very quickly with StreetArticles.com...that is one huge advantage to using this directory.
Congrats, you have your first article submitted to StreetArticles!! This is exciting stuff and you are now that much closer to success! Next lesson I am going to show you how to make money from your article.
- Set-up Your Author Name at Street Articles
- Create Your Author Bio
- SUBMIT your article to a relevant category
Lesson 7- Earn Money $$$$$$!
Ready to start earning some Money? You've researched a niche, made a list of keywords, written an article, and even submitted that article to StreetArticles.com. While your article starts gaining exposure in the search engines, you need to add the MAKE MONEY component to your article.
Earn Money $$$$!Ready to earn some COLD HARD CASH?
The EARN component does require one thing from you. It requires you to first join what are called "affiliate programs".
This is what many people in the online world reference to as a "product to promote"...it is exactly that, something that you can promote, without having any ownership of it.
Affiliate Programs are the most effective business model created online to date. It allows companies to get 100's or even 1000's of people (affiliates) promoting their programs, and in exchange for promoting them, they are willing to pay you a commission.
In fact, in 2009 over 1.9 BILLION dollars were paid to affiliates, people like yourself and I!
This ranges from product to product, but many products pay $30 - $100 per sale. I am going to show you some of these as we move forward, but first I would like to introduce you to the largest and most lucrative affiliate network online, Clickbank (CB).
Your first task is going to be to sign-up to Clickbank. By signing-up, you will have access to promote any product within their entire network which currently has well over 10,000 digital products.
When you sign-up to Clickbank you will be asked to create a "nickname". This nickname will be your unique identifier and will be used in all of your links.
It will ask you for a website. To get around not having one for the time being, you can use one of the following as a placeholder for now:
NOTE: If you can't sign-up to Clickbank because of your country, here are a couple of alternative affiliate networks.
Now that you have signed-up to clickbank, you have 10,000 potential programs you can promote in just about any niche you can imagine. Your task for this lesson is to find affiliate programs related to your niche, and in particular, your 10 keywords.
You can do this by searching the Clickbank Marketplace. For example, I am going to search for “surfing” related affiliate programs.
The above snapshot is just a couple of the programs related to “surfing” that you can promote. These two both pay around $18 per sale which is a little lower than average, but definitely worth your while. Make just three of these commissions per day and you have an extra $1500 per month coming into your bank account!
Each product will have a "Promote” button next to it. You will want to click this button. It will take you to the following screen.
From here you want to enter your Clickbank “nickname”. In this example I have used “yourid”...you will replace this with your nickname and click “Create”.
Your money earning link is then magically generated for you! Wow, it is as easy as that. The corresponding code will look something like this...
Cool...we have our link! Next I am going to show you how to EARN MONEY with this link.
HTML vs Raw LinkAffiliate programs will generally give you your unique affiliate link in two forms. HTML & Raw Link. The HTML version is a tiny snippet of code that will create a link on a web page (or within your article. The html code allows people to click your link and might look something like this:
< a href=”http://nickname.stripfat.hop.clickbank.net”>Click here to visit my link</a>
The above code will create a click-able link on a web page that looks like this:
Click here to visit my link
The other version is your raw affiliate link. This is the link without any HTML code and is what people enter into their web browser address bar. It might look something like this:
- Sign-up to Clickbank
- Sign-up to one other affiliate network
- Generate at least one affiliate link using Clickbank
Lesson 8 - Creating a Blog, Adding the link with in Street Articles!
In order to earn money online you need to send people from your article to a website where you promote affiliate products. In this lesson I show you a quick and easy (free) method of building a web page.
Creating a blog, Adding the Link Within Street ArticlesArticle directories do not allow you to link directly to your affiliate link from your article. Because of this, you have to either create your own website (which costs money) or you can create a website using a free website creation service.
The top one I recommend for doing this is Blogger (a Google product)
After your set-up your account, you will want to create a blogging name (choose something relevant) and create a Blog title as well.
I created a quick one here:
This is the site where I added my affiliate link and this will be the page I can make money from (by linking to it from StreetArticles.com). I used the following format:
You could expand upon this post and add more information if you like, I just wanted to give you the bare bones example here.
Adding your blog link to your Street Articles Author BioOK, we now have a blog page, so we are now allowed to add this link within StreetArticles.com. You need to log back into StreetArticles.com account and update your first article.
Log into your article dashboard:
And click the “Edit Article” button as shown below:
You will want to scroll down within your article to the author Bio. This is where we are going to update it with some text and a link to your blog you just created. Remember, without having a link to your own website within each article, you will not be able to earn money. Having your links within your author bio box is critical.
Here is an example of the text I would include in my Author Bio:
*notice that there is a bit of code in there. This is the code required to create a link:
This is what the above code creates:

In the next lesson I want to show you how to springboard your articles into the search engines and beat out the competitor rankings.
- Sign-up to Blogger.com (if you don’t have your own website already)
- Create a simple blogger page
- Update Your Author Box for your original Street Articles article
Lesson 9 - Giving Your Content An Extra Boost!
In order to earn money online you need to send people from your article to a website where you promote affiliate products. In this lesson I show you a quick and easy (free) method of building a web page.
Giving Your Content an Extra BoostYou have your keywords, you have your article, you have your affiliate product, you have added your website link to the article..now what?
Well, you can sit, wait and pray, OR...
...You can use the same little trick I do to get my articles ranked quicker and to get a ton more traffic.
You want to continue writing articles and I will explain that in more depth during the lesson on creating a plan, but you should take a few minutes and give your articles an extra SEARCH ENGINE BOOST by linking to them from other high ranked sites.
To explain why we are doing this, I want to tell you how search engines like Google rank sites...
Content relevance and the ranking of the article directory are very important for getting search engine rankings, however one of the biggest weighing factors is incoming links from other high ranked sites.
Google has a calculation called Page Rank...and the higher the Page Rank, the better it is to get a link from one of those sites. By adding links directly to your article from high Page Rank sites, you can actually improve your article rankings and speed up the length of time in which they get indexed into Google.
There are TWO primary ways I recommend you do this:
Google Blast Technique #1: Linking to your article from Social Bookmarking Sites
High Page Rank social bookmarking sites can quickly propel your rankings in Google...and there are a ton of these sites out there.
The first one I recommend you add your article link to is Digg.com. You will want to create a digg account using the following link:
Digg.com Sign-up Form
Then you write a small blurb about your article (ideally including your exact keywords within it), and then post a link to your exact article URL.
Here is what an example social bookmark could look like:
You can get more incoming links to your articles by using other similar bookmarking sites. Other great sites to drop links to your articles on (you should sign-up to at least 5 of these, but the more the merrier):
- Mister Wong
- Health Ranker
- Buddy Marks
- A1 Webmarks
- Wagg It
- Cool Search
Google Blast Technique #2: The Blog Comment Technique
The next technique allows you to make use of the millions of blogs out there in the world to get back-links to your article. For any topic or niche, you can almost rest assured that there are several, if not 100’s, of blogs that are relevant to that topic.
The great thing about blogs is that most of them allow you to post comments. This is great for an open discussion and for keeping a blog fresh and interesting, however as an article marketer, these comments can prove to be quite important.
You can post your article links within the blog comments portion and gain highly relevant, one way back links.
But, how do you find these blogs. Here is the example Google Search to use say...if you were looking to find blogs that were relevant to: used cars.
site:.com inurl:blog + "post a comment" + used cars
This Google search is essentially looking for a “.com” website, that has a “post a comment” box on the page and is related to “used cars”.
Then what I could do is post a comment on the blog, adding my article from Street Articles as my website:
Here is an example of how you could post a blog comment:
**Note: Not all blogs approve comments right away, so some will go through moderation and some will never get approved. Adding relevant comments and useful comments is key to getting approved.
Bonus Technique: Utilizing Your Social Circle
Another way to get your article out there is to socialize about this. By this I mean you could add it to your Facebook “wall”, “tweet” about it within your twitter account or post it within a forum or community you are part of.
These are all great ways to get additional traffic and they are not invasive because your article will be interesting and likely helpful for many people!
- Sign-up to 3 Social Bookmark Web sites
- Submit 3 Social Bookmarks for your first article
- Post your article links on at least to blog comments
- Post your article link on your Facebook Wall, Tweet about your article
Lesson 10 - Become A Piece Of The Internet!
Getting your own piece of the Internet is a powerful thing. With your own website you can drive highly qualified visitors to relevant landing pages and supercharge your conversion rates. In this lesson I teach you the benefits of a website and how to get your very own site up and running.
Become a Piece of the InternetHave you ever wondered what it may be like to have your very own piece of the Internet? By this I mean...
Having your very OWN website (on your own domain)...
Maybe you already have one, and maybe you don't. Whichever category you fall into, I am going to teach you how to own your own piece of the net...and to leverage this chunk to earn a huge income online.
Having a website is a great thing. It sounds tough, but in this day and age having your own site has become easy enough that a kindergarten student can create one.
By creating your own website you will be able to leverage any content you want, allow you to create your own brand, promote anything you like, and get “ranked” within Google.
So, how much does a site cost and how should you go about doing it?
Well, I could get all technical on you and explain things like hosting, DNS settings, server set-up, uploading, FTP’ing...but instead I am going to mention a site that simplifies website building to the point where it takes you only THREE CLICKS to build your site.
You need less than $50 to get your own site up and running...which in my opinion is super cheap to own a piece of the Internet. Not only that, you will be able to recoup the costs simply through the traffic that your website will get.
There are three things that you need to have your own website. They are:
- A domain name
- A web host
- Your site
