It is rare to find someone that you can trust these days when it comes to the latest Internet Marketing product out there but without a doubt Jimmy D Brown is the person who I have invested in time and time again to help me with my online ventures and today’s post is an article he has written that I believe can get you started building an online business today. I hope you enjoy this article on “How to Start a Successful Internet Business in 7 Steps!”
It’s exciting to think about how much money you can make online.
But if you’re new to online marketing, it can also be overwhelming
to try to figure out which business model is right for you.
The solution? Keep it simple.
Just follow these seven surefire steps to online profits…
Step 1: Choose a Market
But don’t just choose any market – instead, choose a HUNGRY market.
That means you’re looking for a market that is actively seeking
paid solutions to their problems.
o Search marketplaces like Amazon.com and Clickbank.com to see what
types of niches attract eager, proven buyers.
o Use a keyword tool like WordTracker.com or the free Google
Keyword Tool to find out what people are searching for. You can
enter your proposed niche keywords (like “dog training”) to see if
there is a demand, or enter a broad keyword (like “secrets” or “how
to”) to uncover new niches.
o Go to EzineArticles.com and browse the top articles to see which
niches are popular.
Step 2: Get Your Tools In Place
Once you find a niche that spends money, your next step is to
gather your tools. These include:
o A domain name, which you can get at NameCheap.com.
o Hosting, which you can secure at HostGator.com.
o An autoresponder, which you can purchase through Aweber.com.
Step 3: Select an Offer to Promote
Next, you need to find an affiliate offer that you can promote to
your hungry niche. The best way to do that is to find out what
they’re already buying… and choose a similar offer.
Simply go to Clickbank.com and browse the relevant niche category.
Those products appearing at the top of the catalog are your best
sellers – you should choose a product near the top of the list.
Just be sure to buy, read and use the product to ensure that it is,
indeed, a good product.
Step 4: Write and Upload a Mini eCourse
Your next step is to create an autoresponder series around the
topic of your product so that you can promote your offer. Your
autoresponder series should be at least 7-12 messages long.
You’re selling a copywriting product. You can create a seven-part
ecourse on how to write a sales letter. Then promote the
copywriting product in every message.
You’re selling a diet recipe book. You can create a 10-part weight
loss course that pitches the recipe book in every message.
You’re selling a dog training video. You can create a seven part
course that teaches the basic obedience lessons such as sit, down
and stay. In every message you refer your prospects to the paid
video for more information.
Here’s the key: Do NOT solve your prospect’s problems 100%. You
want to provide useful but incomplete information, so that your
prospects need to purchase your affiliate offer in order to fully
solve their problems.
Step 5: Create a Squeeze page
Next, you need to persuade your prospects to subscribe to your
ecourse. You do this by creating a mini sales page (AKA squeeze
page). This page should include:
o A headline that touts your course’s major benefit (e.g., “FREE:
How to housetrain your puppy in just three easy steps!”).
o A list of the other benefits of your course (e.g., “You’ll
discover the secrets of turning an unruly, rambunctious puppy into
a perfect houseguest!”).
o And a call to action (e.g., “Just enter your name and email
address in the form below now, click join and you’ll get instant
access to this eye-opening report!”).
You may also provide proof of your claims, such as testimonials,
videos, screenshots, pictures and similar evidence.
Step 6: Drive Traffic to the Squeeze Page
Next, you need to drive targeted traffic to your squeeze page so
that you can quickly build your list. You can do this by:
o Starting a blog and posting articles that are optimized for the
o Trading links with other high traffic sites in your niche.
o Being a guest blogger on other peoples’ blogs.
o Co-promoting with other marketers in your niche (e.g., endorsing
each other in your newsletters).
o Submitting articles to EzineArticles.com and other article
o Using social media sites like Squidoo.com, Yahoo! Answers, and
o Participating on niche forums on in niche blog discussions.
Step 7: Add Messages to Your Autoresponder Series
Once you’re getting traffic, building your list and making a
profit, you can start adding even more messages to your
autoresponder – anywhere from a couple month’s worth of messages to
a year or more.
That way you’ll make money virtually on autopilot – all you have to
do is build your list and let your autoresponder do all the work!
Making money online doesn’t have to be complicated, not when you
follow these seven easy steps!

Some ideas burst into the air like a rocket.
Others quickly fizzle off into the night like a bottle rocket.
There’s a big difference between an “idea” and a “great idea”, right?
Fortunately, there’s also a simple process that you can follow to get great ideas for your membership site. If you’re unsure how to begin and are stuck for ideas, try out these tips. Your next membership site may not be that far away.
Begin by brainstorming your own life. Get personal! Creating your membership site is going to be much easier if you know a little bit about the market. That’s why it’s a great idea to start your ideas list with hobbies, interests and activities from your own life. Write down everything that you and your family members are passionate about or interested in. This list could be a goldmine for your membership site.
Ebook and video course creators have done a lot of niche market research in order to create their products. You can piggyback on this research specifically by keeping an eye on “product launches”. For example, if you see a lot of products being produced on article marketing you can safely assume that a membership site on the same topic would do well. Subscribe to email lists in your potential market to watch for product launches and get ideas for your site.
Persuse means “to examine in detail”. It also begins with “p” so it fits my outline.
If you want a comprehensive list of existing electronic products that are selling well, Clickbank.com/marketplace is the place to go. Search through the marketplace to find out what topics your market is interested in learning about. You’ll be able to find new market ideas, content to fill your site as well as affiliate offers to create some backend sales.
Visit Amazon.com’s best-seller list. Amazon is the top bookseller online so it makes sense to search their marketplace for membership site ideas. The bestseller lists in various categories will help you see what topics are popular. You can easily gather membership site ideas from these lists. Hint: Go with the topics that are popular.
Forums are the pulse of your market. You can be sure that a market has members that would be willing to pay if there is an active forum dedicated to that topic. Track down some popular forums in your potential market and spend some time browsing through the topics. See what the market is talking about. Pay close attention to the FAQs section and the threads that have a lot of activity. These are indicators of the kinds of topics which might serve as a topic for your next membership site.
You gotta go to Magazines.com! This website is full of membership site ideas. If a market has a buying audience, there is probably a magazine out there dedicated to it. Magazines don’t get started without advertising dollars to back them up. If advertisers are paying to get to a market, it’s a safe bet that you can create a membership site for the same market. On Magazines.com you can search by category to find membership site ideas. I love this place!
The final stop I want to mention is Yahoo groups. These free e-mail discussion lists cover a wide variety of topics. Subscribe to a few groups in your potential market to look for ideas. The benefit of using groups like these is that you’ll often be able to see problems in the market that aren’t currently being met by other products.
By going through these simple outlets you are sure to find a great idea for your next membership site.
If you’d like a shortcut for finding a great idea — and an even bigger shortcut to getting a membership site setup and taking orders, grab a copy of the Membership To Go package.
Membership To Go is a complete, one-year membership site that you can license for your own use. This has never been offered before and it includes EVERYTHING you need to get started, including private label rights to the membership content, its sales letter, presell report, articles and other marketing materials.
Set it up at your site, sell as many memberships as you want, keep 100% of every sale.

Plus, the topic is related to one of the most popular niches in the world. A market that has had multiple million dollar launches, countless sales every single day and a huge marketplace of potential buyers.
Jimmy D. Brown is the founder of the PLR industry and creator of Membership To Go, an “everything included” membership site package that you can setup at your site and keep 100% of every sale you make. Details at http://imstitute.com/go.php?offer=texasdmcgpid=2
If I asked you today what is the ONE thing you’d like to have
more of that would help you build your business, chances are
the answer you’d give me is this:
*** Traffic ***
Ask around and the average internet marketer is after more
traffic to their sites. In fact, unless you have a weenie
server hosting your site, there is no such thing as “too much”
It’s what everyone wants. Number one on the wish list!
In Jimmy D. Brown’s ground-breaking course, Sales Army Secrets,
he explains how to get traffic — and a lot of it — for FREE.
That is, how to get other people — a lot of them — sending it
to you at no cost to yourself.

of resale rights licenses to sell this course.

Hello everyone. Today I want to bring you a guest post by one of my mentors. If you have a website and want to learn how to get traffic to your site you need to read this article.
“How To Get An Instant Traffic Surge To Your Site”
By Jimmy D. Brown of Traffic F.U.E.L.
There’s no question that building an affiliate program is THE best way to get a lot of free traffic to your web site.
And, if you spend any amount of time at all reading through the materials here, you’ll find a lot of useful ideas for finding affiliates to grow your program.
But, here is an affiliate idea that will absolutely take your traffic and sales to the next level.
Let me give it to you in it’s abbreviated form first, and then I’ll explain everything you need to know to quickly get it implemented.
You ready for this?
“Find a motivated ‘affiliate manager’ and pay them 50% of all your profits”
Now, I know what you’re thinking – why in the world would I pay someone HALF of all of my profit?
I’m about to explain it to you. And believe me, this is worth the read, so pay careful attention to what I’m about to explain to you.
This is good.
It works like this…
1. Setup a separate website to process orders.
To begin with, you’ll need to setup a separate website to process all of the orders that your “affiliate manager” brings in (along with all sales generated by the affiliates he recruits for you)
In other words, you register a new domain that is similar to the title of your existing domain, and you host that site.nt for processing all of the orders and managing your new affiliate program that your “manager” will be overseeing.
This is a completely separate account from your existing one. All orders generated through this account will be completely brought in by your affiliate manager and affiliates / partners he recruits.
Now, obviously, your affiliate manager will want to monitor sales stats to see how much profit is being generated to this Clickbank account. You’ve got two options for how you allow your affiliate manager access…
Get full access to the control panel. Your first option is to allow your affiliate manager complete access to the control panel at Clickbank in order to monitor stats. I highly recommend that you ONLY do this if your affiliate manager is someone you know well and find completely trustworthy. Once someone has access to your Clickbank account, they can, in effect, take control of the account. Use this option with extreme caution.
Give email access and screenshots. The other option is to setup a forwarding email address that sends the sales notifications from Clickbank to both of your email accounts. This will allow your affiliate manager to get notified when any sale is generated so they can verify sales and profits. Additionally, at the end of each pay period, you could take screenshots of the Clickbank control panel or scan the check you receive from Clickbank when sending your affiliate manager’s half of the profits received.em on to your affiliate manager to use with the affiliates he has recruited for the separate program.
Hint: Encourage him to create his own unique materials, incentives, and contests for his own affiliates as well!
What an incredible traffic-generation idea!
* 50% of all profits from this separate site!
* A growing database of affiliates!
* A growing opt-in list!
All in all, this is one of THE best ways to grow your business … without lifting a finger!

In health and wealth,
Hi my fellow small business owners it is Dave, your small business coach here. Listen, one of the hardest things whether you are offline or online is getting traffic to your business. As many of you know I have an online business Working Mom Workouts.com, where I provide weekly fitness workouts to my clients. One of my earliest mistakes was I spent a ton of money on PPC and other online advertising to get traffic to my site. It worked but it nearly bankrupted me, so with that said I was left with really only one option and that was to get traffic to the site for “FREE”! I had some ideas but I went back to one of the guys who helped me build my membership site.
Now, there are some “go to” website traffic strategies that most successful internet marketers find themselves using over and over again when they need a boost in visitors to one of their sites.
One well known internet marketer tells of using some of them for more than a DECADE (yep, over 10 years!) and they continue to work with incredible results for him.
Others are “cutting edge” newcomers that are likewise driving people to his sites.
All of them come without a cost. Zilch. No budget. Free.
What’s even better is this:
They continue to pull in traffic for months and even years after he deploy thems.
It’s true, long after the initial “spike” in traffic comes in visitors continue to see his promos that are in place and they continue to click on them.
And he continues to make money from them.
You can too!
Jimmy D. Brown has prepared a free subscription to his new Traffic Jam Newsletter at:
In the first issue you’ll learn “10 Ways To Get Other People To Send You Free Traffic”.
There is no cost for the newsletter subscription. It’s available a few paragraphs into the page.
While you’re there, check out his amazing Traffic F.U.E.L. membership site.
It’s a 12-month training program that teaches you how to get completely free traffic to any website you choose.
Two things you need to know about it up front…
1) If you join now you can lock-in at the introductory price, which is a SUBSTANTIAL savings. Once these charter memberships are sold, the price will almost DOUBLE, so now is the time to get in.
2) There are two “fast action” bonuses that are VERY LIMITED. These will be removed without notice, so if you arrive at the site and one or both of the boxes with their description in it are gone, it means they are no longer available.
At a minimum you should drop by and grab a free subscription to his new Traffic Jam Newsletter.
And unless you don’t want any more traffic to your website, you should grab a charter membership to Traffic F.U.E.L. right away.
