Chapter 1: Why You Need A Passive Income

Two of the most asked questions I hear people ask are, “What is passive income”, and “How can I make passive income online”.

I’m going to share my top forms of passive income that have changed my life, and also how you can do the same. Passive income has given me the ability to quit my job and be free to do whatever I choose. I can now work when I want, from anywhere in the world, and make money when I’m sleeping. I’m sharing his with you because I want to give you the ability to live the life you’ve always wanted.

What Is A Passive Income And Why You Want One.

How many people in the world don’t like their job? Chances are, you belong in this category. If so, the question I have for you is WHY? Why do you continue doing something you don’t like? Wouldn’t you like to quit that job and do something you love?

Unlike having a job and exchanging time for money, passive income requires hard work once to build an asset, then having the asset pay you each month forever, without you having to manage it. This means that you could spend your time doing anything you like, all while collecting a pay check. If this doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what will.

[] The Two Types Of Income

Active income is income that you exchange your time for. This is income you get from having a job. The moment you stop trading your time for money is the time you stop collecting a pay check. You have to constantly work if you want to earn money, and the second you stop working, your income stream is gone.

Passive income is income that you generate by doing work once. You invest a bit of time to create an automated business that pays you 24 hours a day, whether you’re working or not. This income will be generated forever, and required little or no time managing. This is done by having an automated system that runs your business without you being there. This is what makes an online business so awesome.

Financial freedom is when your passive income exceeds your expenses.

[] Sources Of Passive Income

Below I will share my favourite types of passive income. These are all extremely easy to setup, and anyone can use them. No matter your experience level, as long as you have the drive to succeed, you can take these approaches and create a huge income for yourself. Put your mind to it and don’t give up.

Investing

This is the most traditional form of passive income. The dividend you receive from owning a stock or bond is a type of passive income. This approach is more long term, but in my opinion, this is the number one approach to build long term wealth.

There are many different ways to invest your money. There’s stocks, bonds or mutual funds. However, I don’t recommend using mutual funds since their fees are way too high. I suggest learning about this yourself because it will save you tones of money in the long run. I suggest reading the book, Money Master The Game by Tony Robbins. This book teaches you how to manage your own investments, and shows you how simple it can be. Most people are intimidated by the idea of investing in the stock market, but if the worlds richest people are doing it, why wouldn’t you? All it takes is a bit of time to educate yourself.

Investing in dividend stocks is so powerful because it takes advantage of compounding interest. Over time your income will grow exponentially because you not only receive interest on your initial investment, but you also receive interest on interest. This means that the more you have invested, the more you will receive. Over time this will grow to outrageous numbers if done right, and little of your time is required.

“Compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe”-Albert Einstein

Information Products

Information products are products that you can create to help solve someones problems. They can be in the form of courses, books, video or audio. When someone searches for something on google, they will find your product and purchase it. This is an example of passive income because you will spend a bit of time creating a product that people value, and once it’s done, your work is over. You will continue to get paid forever.

Business is solving peoples problems at a profit.

Creating an info product will take a bit more time than other forms of passive income, but would be well worth it. You will need to create a website, sales letter and the product. Once you have the product created you will need to make sure people will be able to find it on google and also advertise it. You will need to do this until your site gets traction, then the rest will take care of itself.

For examples of info products, go to the Clickbank Marketplace. This is where you can find examples of other peoples products, and how they sell them.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is when you promote other peoples products for a commission. The majority of products have an affiliate program that you can sign up for. Once you do, you receive a unique link, and when someone buys their product through your link, you receive a commission.

You will need to create an audience through a website or book that reviews and promotes a specific product. This can be done very easily using a Wordpress blog, and once it’s setup, you will need to rank your site on google so people can find it.

Kindle Book Publishing

This is the easiest and fastest way to make a passive income online. If done properly, you can create thousands of dollars a month passive income within 6 months. Kindle publishing is creating an ebook and using the Amazon platform to sell it. This is great because you are leveraging Amazon’s reputation and marketing to get your book in front of thousands of people. All that is really required on your behave is to research a profitable niche and create a book in that niche. You can either write the book yourself, or hire a freelancer to write it for you inexpensively.

An example of this is, if you see that online marketing is a hot niche, you will create your book, publish it, and rank it on Amazon. After this is done, they will essentially take care of the rest while you receive payments.

[] Making Money Is Not Easy And Requires Hard Work

Though this may sound easy, making money online does not happen overnight and takes a lot of hard work. You will need to commit to whatever you choose, and focus 100% on being successful. All of these methods have been tested by me and I’ve had success in each, but just remember that it didn’t happen overnight. Nothing in life is easy, so if you want to achieve success, you must dedicate yourself.

Making money online can be done by anyone who is willing to take action. These techniques don’t require knowledge of computers, technology or business. All you need to do is find a mentor or program and follow what it lays out. This will get rid of the risk of trial and error, and you will receive what has been tested and proven to work. There’s no doubt in my mind that if you commit yourself and take action, you will have huge success in making passive income.

 

Chapter 2: What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing online is one of the easiest ways to create passive income for yourself. There are a few things you need to consider before you pick a product. It is very important to spend the time picking the right product. If you pick a product that nobody needs or is looking for, you’re just wasting your time. You must also pick a product that you actually know and believe in, and will put your name behind. The whole idea of affiliate marketing is that your audience believes and trusts your opinion. So make sure you’re honest with them. Here are more important things to remember…

[]Type Of Product

The type of product you choose is very important, whether it’s physical or an informational product. Physical products are items like books, and information products are items such as online courses. Physical products are usually a one time purchase price, and info products can be either a one time or monthly subscription. Whatever the pay option is, you will receive a commission for each time the customer is billed. The important thing to remember here is to know what your potential customer is looking for, then find a product to sell them.

It’s also a good idea to find an audience that you can market different products to. If you’re marketing to a market looking for just one thing, they probably will only be one time customers. By offering them different products it will keep them coming back, and make them repeat customers.

[]Sales Page

It is also important to find a product that has a very good and convincing sales page. The sales page is what the customer sees when they visit the website. It should either have a video or a long copywriting letter. How you can see if it’s a good product, go through the sales page and think to yourself, “is this convincing”? And “would I buy this”? If the answer is no, move on to something else.

[]Commissions

The final thing to look at is the commission that you make per sale. You want to look for products that pay out at least $50 per sale. They should also pay you a minimum of 50% the cost of product. If they're offering anything less than this, don't promote the product. There are much better options out there. The only exception is if they pay out a reoccurring payment each month with high repurchase rates. Then it is fine to find products with a lower commission.

Think about it…if you get 1 sale a week and for each sale you get $50, that’s not a bad return for doing basically nothing. Your sales will increase over time, so it’s possible to build a four or five figure affiliate marketing business quickly. You must be honest with your audience, so don’t just recommend random products. You must give them enough free value that they will keep coming back and will trust you enough to buy what you put in front of them.

The great thing about passive income is that it can allow you to make money when you’re sleeping, playing golf, or doing what you really enjoy. This can allow you to quit your job, and really focus on creating your own path in life. Try it for yourself…you won’t be disappointed.

 

Chapter 3: How To Make Sure You’re Successful

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have massive success in a short period of time and others never get anywhere? Or how about when “less skilled” people end up succeeding far more than someone who is qualified? This happens every single day and there is a specific reason why this happens. It’s just like when the smart kid in high school ends up working for the kid who got C’s. Most people would have thought that the smart kid was set to succeed in life, but IQ really has nothing to do with that.

You’ve probably heard of the people who go from zero to millions in only a couple years, or people who built a business overnight. You might be thinking that this is complete BS, but it really does happen, and there’s a reason for it. I’ve recently become fascinated with how people are able to do this and I’ve found a lot of common traits. It seemed that almost all people who have had success in life had one or more of these following characteristics. Let’s get into it:

[] They Had The Right Mindset

The number 1 most important thing that you NEED to do is develop the right mindset. This should be your number 1 focus when you’re first starting out with your career. I’ve spent a lot of time developing my mindset and it has made life so much easier for me. I’ve read books, gone through courses, and attended seminars and I’m so glad I did.

I noticed that almost all successful people had the same mindset. They were always in a positive state and had clear goals set for themselves. They were motivated and knew ahead of time that whatever they were doing was going to work. If it didn’t work they would find out why and adjust. All while moving in the same forward direction toward their goals.

[] They Had A Mentor Or Coaching Program

The second thing that I found very common is successful people had either a mentor or went through a coaching program. I 100% agree with this and I tell people all the time to do this. This is very powerful because it allows you to cut the learning curve in half. You learn exactly what works and what doesn't through others experience. You don't have to waste time with trial and error. Other people have already done that, so what we want to do is take what they already know and model success. This is the fastest way to be successful. There's no need to reinvent the wheel.

People always say to me that they don’t want to pay for a course or coach. Do you really not value yourself high enough to invest in yourself? If you’re not willing to invest in yourself and learn, you will not be successful.

Simple as that. If you don’t want to invest a couple hundred bucks to learn something, I really feel sorry for you. I guarantee that if you try it for yourself you will end up wasting that couple hundred anyway and also months of your time. This is why I always tell people to take a course if they want to know about mindset, kindle publishing, or whatever it is.

I found that people also tend to take more action when they have some "skin in the game", meaning they have paid money from out of pocket. If they don't take action they just lost money. This will force people to follow through and apply what they learn. 90% of the time I teach people for free they don't take action. I highly recommend you throw some of your own money on the table as motivation.

[] They Had The Drive To Succeed

The next thing that all successful people have is that never ending drive to get whatever needs to be done, done. These people won’t stop until they have won. No matter what gets in their way, they will find a way to pull through in the end. These people are either going to succeed or die trying. People like Gary Vaynerchuk who work 80 hours a week because he has the drive and loves what he does.

You probably know at least 1 person who is always talking about what they’re going to do but never end up doing it. Most likely this is because they don’t have the drive or motivation. Don’t let this be you. Just remember that if you want to be successful, you’re going to have to put in the work.

[] They Learn And Take Action

Knowledge is not power. Knowledge is only potential power. Action is power. Anthony Robbins

How many times do you hear people talking about things they know but have no experience doing it? For me it’s almost everyday. People are always telling others what they “should” be doing but in reality, they haven’t even done it themselves. Knowing everything and having knowledge means NOTHING. What matters is applying that knowledge to your life or business. I could know everything about the Paleo diet but if I’ve never done it am I really an expert?

When I first started reading a lot of books I was just focused on reading and learning everything I possibly could. I soon realized that I was pretty much wasting a lot of my time. I was learning but I didn’t take the time to apply it. It came to a point when I was in information overload. I had so much going on in my head and I couldn’t think straight. My life drastically changed when I started implementing everything that I was reading about. Don’t just read to learn, read to learn and then apply.

[] They Commit For The Long Term

So many people are looking for the fast, get rich quick thing. I’m sorry to say this but that just doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as get rich quick, and I want to get people out of that mindset. People want to make more money but very few will actually put in the time and effort to go get it. They are short sighted. They want the money NOW and they don’t expect to work for it. This is the wrong approach. Successful people ALWAYS plan for the long term and are willing to put in time.

Short sighted things may work for a bit but you won’t be successful long term. No matter what you’re working towards, commit and plan for the long term, put in the time and effort, and you will become one of those successful people.

[]They Embrace Failure

Are you afraid of failing? I’m not. I actually welcome failure because I’m one step closer to success and I now know what NOT to do. If you never fail, how can you possibly learn? The sooner you fail, the sooner you learn, and the sooner you can find what works.

If you absolutely don’t want to fail, the only way you can do that is by learning from others who have. Pay them for coaching or buy their course and find a proven strategy. Again, I recommend everyone do this. Don’t expect people to teach your for free.

[] They Have Clear Goals

When I started publicly stating my goals in my Goal report, I started noticing a lot better results. I not only was motivated to finish my goal, but I also had a clear direction of where I needed to go. I knew what I had to work towards and this kept me moving forward. Each and every day I had an idea of what needed to be done and this was huge for me. Creating your own goals is a MUST and I highly recommend you set some for yourself.

If I didn’t have goals for myself I would be lost. I would get up in the morning and be reactive. This means that I have no plan and I’ll do whatever comes up. Being reactive is the productivity killer and I guarantee you will not get a thing done. Instead, you want to be proactive. This means that you have a set plan every day and know what you will be doing before the day starts. If you want to be more productive this is what you have to do. 

[]They Lack Motivation

If you don’t have motivation to do whatever it is you want to do you should just give up now. I promise you will NEVER get to the end, so don’t waste your time. You need to find something that you’re actually motivated to do. If you’ve ever been at a job you didn’t like, you know how hard it was to get stuff done.

You need to love what you do. Life is too short to spend it doing something you don’t like. Find something you’re motivated to do and do it well. I can’t stress this enough. If you don’t like your job, take action and quit. If you want to start a business, stop thinking about it and do it. If you want to be successful, chase it.

It is definitely possible to achieve massive success in a short period of time. All it takes is the right mindset, a clear plan and strategy, and the ability to control your emotions. If you apply what we just talked about to your life, I have no doubt in my mind that you will have success too. Share and comment below to share your opinions.

 

Chapter 4: Is Affiliate Marketing Dead?

Are you interested in making a potential six figure income while you sleep? If so, network marketing might be for you (Also called affiliate marketing).

Network marketing is when you receive a commission for referring a customer to buy someone else’s product or service. This is an awesome way to generate income because it is so easy…

This is because you don’t have to put in any time and effort creating a product. The seller already has done this by making the product, creating a website and sales page. All you have to do is refer your visitors to the affiliate site, and for each sale, you receive commission.

How awesome is that?

If you currently have a decent following, this could be an effective and easy way for you to make money online.

My goal is to make this a big part of my site, not only for the income, but I want to help people by referring them to tools and resources that have helped me.

Everything that I recommend to people, I do because I’ve used it and it had a positive impact on my life and business. I want my success to be from being open and building trust, so if I find a service or course that I loved, I want to share that with you.

3 Easy Steps To Make Money Network Marketing

1. Create A Blog Or Website To Build A Following

This is the first important step for creating passive income online with affiliate marketing.

The whole idea of affiliate marketing is creating a source of value where people come and trust what you’re doing and want your opinion.

This is where you can recommend products and services that will benefit them, all while generating a commission for yourself (at no extra cost to them). This is a win-win situation for you both.

This course is the #1 affiliate marketing training program on the internet today. I’ve gone through this course and it was awesome! In this course, I learned how to set up a website and have my site come up using keywords in the search engines. If I had reviewed a product, and someone was looking to buy it, my site would come up and if they were to join I’d receive a commission.

Cool right?

Did you notice what I just did there? That was an example of affiliate marketing. I recommended a service that had helped me in the past, and if you were to click on the link and join the service, I’d receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you)!

Sometimes it is difficult to rank a blog on google for an extended period of time, and I’ve found that reviewing a product using a Youtube video and posting that on your blog is much easier to rank…

This is because Youtube is owned by google, and is held at a much higher status than a new blog. This is a powerful tool to use in your favour.

Another example on how to affiliate market is by creating a resource page and listing all of your favourite products and services. You can have a little review on each of them, and if someone is interested, they can click on the link and it will take them to the companies page.

2. Build An Email List To Market To

After you have set up some sort of platform to market on, it’s time to build up your Email list.

This is a huge part, and in my opinion, is a must have. Once you have a list, it’s time to provide your subscribers with awesome free content, and also, recommend awesome products.

This is another way I make money online.

On my site, there’s a opt in section for people to join and receive this passive income guide, and also other cool content that’s not available on the blog. Once people opt in, I receive their Email address.

The first, and most important thing to remember is, you MUST focus on providing value and building trust. I do this by sending out as much quality content as I possibly can.

Then, and only then, can you start promoting products to your list.

If you start doing this right away, before they trust you, everyone will just unsubscribe because nobody wants to receive tones of emails from someone selling stuff.

But I cannot stress this enough, provide as much free content as you possibly can first.

This is an extremely powerful tool, because if there’s a product that I really like, and I think others would too, I can easily send that info out to my list. I believe this is fair because I’m spending all this time putting together this content to make other peoples lives easier.

There are 2 important parts to remember here…

#
p<>{color:#333;}. You MUST only recommend products that you believe in and will benefit others, and not just to make money. You must always put your visitors first, so only recommend products and services that you feel very comfortable with.

#
p<>{color:#333;}. Don’t over promote to your list. You must provide an even balance of value and promoting. You need to give enough value to your visitors so they will want to keep coming back, and the number one way to lose a visitor is by just selling them stuff.

The main lesson here is, the most important part of building a list is generating trust and a relationship with your visitors. You must look out for them as much as, or even more than yourself.

3. Generate Traffic To Your Website

Once you have awesome content on your site, it’s time to start driving in traffic.

There are many ways you can do this with things such as SEO optimization, keywords, ads, and social media. One of my favourite ways to generate traffic to my site is through my kindle books.

Each book that I create gets hundreds of downloads, and in each of these I promote my site to people, so this is an extremely easy way to get in front of tones of people.

For example, creating a book on how to trade penny stocks. This will get in front of hundreds of people, and chances are, they will want a next step suggestion.

This is where I can refer them to my site and share with them the course I took on how to trade penny stocks. They will be happy because they are learning more and I’ll be happy because I received a small commission.

My kindle books can also be used to build my list.

People are joining my list because they want content and recommendations regarding certain things. This is where I can suggest products to people who are looking for exactly that.

Once again, I highly recommend educating yourself further on how to find niches and set up your network marketing site.

Chapter 5: How To Build A Six Figure Online Business

What I’m going to be talking about in this post is the process to create your own six figure online business. This is the approach that I’m talking and can be done in any niche. This ISN’T going to automatically make you six figures per year, you will have to follow this guide, put in the time and effort, and you will have the potential to make a six figure business.

This technique is used by a lot of people who make a lot of money on the internet. The thing you need to know is that this won’t make you money overnight. This is a strategy for the long term and is used in conjunction with other techniques, such as kindle publishing, info products, and physical products.

This is where you’ll want to start because it is essential to build a solid foundation and home on the internet. This is why we’re going to start with building our website. I’m going to give you a step by step guide on how to do all this and what companies I use for creating and hosting my website.

This is a very simple strategy, and I’m going to show you how to start the process and setup the system. The overview of this system is the following: create a website, build an engaged email list, run paid advertising, create products or sell affiliate offers. This is my favorite technique for making money online and this will show the basics on how to get started if you’re a beginner. Here’s what the basic process looks like:

This process is NOT easy. This is just the basics on how the process works. Once you master this process it’s just a rinse and repeat process. You can do this over and over and make a lot of money doing so. Let’s get into each stage.

[] Create a Website with Opt-In

This should be step 1 in the six figure online business process. This allows you to have a home on the internet and start building your brand and customer list. Here are the steps:

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Buy a domain name and Bluehost hosting (domain included when you signup).

#
p<>{color:#333;}. Install Wordpress.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Install Instapage.

I say Bluehost, Wordpress, and Instapage because they are what I use and recommend. Bluehost gives you a free domain name when you register and Instapage is the easiest landing page (email collector) software. I have created a step by step guide on how to do this entire process (see below).

[] Create Email List and Auto Responder

Once your website is setup and live, it’s time to build your email list. This is the core of your business and should be the main thing you focus on. I use Aweber to collect emails and it’s the easiest to use service in my opinion. Your email list is used to get peoples email address and then build a relationship with them. Then you can send them offers and get them to buy from you. You will then create a autoresponder, which is an automatic follow up series that your subscribers get when they signup. I do this to automatically send them an email when they signup for one of my lists. Again, I created a step by step guide on how to do this:

[] Create Paid Advertising

This is going to be your main source of traffic. A lot of people think that people will find their site organically and they don’t need to pay for traffic. If this is you, have fun waiting six months. Because your site is new it won’t rank in Google and people won’t find it. This is where paid traffic comes into play.

This is creating ads on Google and Facebook to drive traffic to your site. You can target people who are specifically interested in your niche. Facebook allows you to target people who like certain things, live in a certain spot, are male or female, and much more. Google allows your ad to show up when people search for certain keywords. This is a powerful way to get subscribers and is a must in my opinion. For beginners, I’d suggest starting at only $5 per day and work up as you gain experience.

Creating these are pretty straight forward so I’m not going to create a guide for this. Facebook and Google have some guides for you.

  • * Provide Value and Sell Product/Service to that List

This is where you start to build a relationship with your subscribers and monetize your site. This is the most stable way to make money and is essential for any online business. If you master this it will be like printing money.

The basic process of this is: offer something in exchange for their email, offer them value to build relationship, offer affiliate offers or your own products.

This system can be used in any niche. The most profitably niches out there today are: health, wealth, dating and education. These 4 niches are the easiest to make money from because they are so popular. I’d recommend you start in one of these and once you have some experience, branch out into smaller niches.

Remember to not spam your subscribers with offers. You need to provide them free value so they get to know and trust you. Nobody will buy from someone they don’t know, so make sure you focus on building that relationship first.

There you have it! That is the basic process of building a six figure online business. Try it out for yourself and see the results for yourself. Don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t work right away. Most sites don’t make a single dollar for the first few months. Stick with it long term and you will have created a money making machine.

Chapter 6: How To Create And Setup A Website In Minutes

If you’re looking to make passive income affiliate marketing, the number one step is to create a website. This will be used to build your reputation and followers, and these people will generate you money. The number one purpose of your site must be to provide value to your visitors. If you just create lousy content and expect people to come and trust you, you are sadly mistaken. This is NOT a get rich quickly concept, so before you expect to make money, you must create awesome content that your visitors will love. Below I will provide a step by step guide on how to create your website in a matter of minutes using Bluehost. Let’s get started!

I recommend using Bluehost as your hosting service. They are a great company, and are required to host all of your websites and blogs on. A great thing about Bluehost is that they provide you with a free domain name (usually $10/year) for registering. Bluehost is extremely easy to use, and can be controlled using Wordpress. I use Wordpress for all my sites, and I highly recommend. Just remember, if you want to build your reputation, make sure you self host your domain. This means that you want to have your domain as, YOURDOMAIN.com and not YOURDOMAIN.Wordpress.com.

How To Create Your Site Using Bluehost

Step 1. Click the “get started now” button on the Bluehost website.

If you decide that you don’t want to host your website anymore, Bluehost offers a money back guarantee so you can cancel at any moment and get back what you haven’t used!

Note: If you click on the link above and sign up for Bluehost, I will receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you). This isn’t why I recommend them, I seriously believe that they are the top hosting service out there. You can use other hosting services if you wish, but I chose Bluehost.

Step 2. Add Your Domain Name

Your next step will be to add your domain name. This is the URL that you want your site to be called.I suggest using a .com extension over anything else, as this is most popular. Also, make sure that your domain is available. It might be a good idea to come up with a few potential names.

Step 3. Enter Your Information

Once your domain has been confirmed, your next step is to enter all of your information, billing address, and the package you want. I use the 12 month at $6.95 per month, but you can choose whichever you like.

You don’t need to worry about all the extra parts they try and sell you. The only thing to think about is getting the Domain Whois Privacy. This makes sure people cannot find your personal information when they search for your domain.

Enter your billing info and click next.

Step 4. Setup A Username And Password

Step 5. Click On “Hosting”, Then The “Website” Tab, And Then Use “Wordpress”

Under the Control Panel in the hosting section, the next step is to click on the “Website” tab and then look for the Wordpress icon. Click on “Use Wordpress”.

Step 6. Install Wordpress

You will then be directed to the MOJO marketplace, where you’ll be given instructions for installing Wordpress. Once you’ve been directed, click “Start”

You will then be asked which domain you’d like to install Wordpress to. This can be left blank if you want to apply it to the root domain.

The last step is to enter all of your website info, such as the site name, password, username. This can all be changed later as well. Click “Install Now”.

Step 7. Login To Your Site

The final step is to go to your website and login. Type http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php, and then enter your username and password. Once you’ve done this, your site will be ready for you to customize it to your liking. Your Site is live!

Congratulations! You are now on your way to building an awesome site with valuable content. Just remember to put a bunch of value on your site before you try and sell stuff.

Chapter 7: Create An Email List

For anyone starting out creating passive income online, the number one tip I have for you is to create and build an email list of raving fans. The reason you want to do this is because by having a list, you will be able to sell anything to them. Whether it’s affiliate products or your own product, having people who know and trust you will turn into customers.

You’ve probably heard the saying, “The money is in the list”. This is absolutely true, and if you’re looking to generate a lot of money for yourself, this should be your number one goal.

How To Build An Email List

Step 1: Create an Aweber account.

(This is my affiliate link. If you buy through it I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. It would be very much appreciated!)

There’s a lot of different options for creating an email list, but I use Aweber and Mailchimp. I’d recommend either of these because I’ve found them to be very simple but the choice is up to you.

Step 2: Create your list.

Now that you’re registered, it’s time to set up your list. When you login, you will be taken to your dashboard.

First, click on “Create List”:

Next, you will be asked to put in your info such as, your list name, your name and your email. This will be the info that your subscribers see when you send them an email.

Step 3: Create your welcome email.

Your first follow up email will be your welcome message that is sent out immediately after signing up and should be automated. In it you can include:

*
p<>{color:#333;}. Welcome and thank you message

*
p<>{color:#333;}. Any free content you said you’ll give them

*
p<>{color:#333;}. What they should expect from you

*
p<>{color:#333;}. A way for them to contact you

You can also add in anything else you want to say, but these few ideas are pretty standard. To do this, just click on “follow up” or “create campaign”.

Then you will have to fill in your email info, and once you’ve done that, you can now write your welcome email.

Step 4: Send test email to yourself.

Next, you will want to send a test email to yourself to make sure everything looks right. This will show you exactly what your subscribers are seeing.

Once you save your email you can click on “test” and enter your email to see a preview of your welcome email.

Step5: Create your opt in/squeeze page.

This is the opt in that will be put on your blog or website to collect email addresses. You can either use the build in feature on Aweber or you could use the site Instapage, which is a website specifically for creating squeeze pages.

Here’s an example of what one of my squeeze pages look like:

As you probably know, having a landing page to collect emails is a crucial part of your online business.

There’s so many different options out there, which makes it very hard decide. I’ve tried most of the big ones out there and I definitely have a favorite. I’ve tried Leadpages, OptimizePress, Instapage, and Unbounce. What I looked at for each was quality, user friendliness, and price.

After comparing these 4 softwares, I personally liked Instapage. I liked Instapage because it was the easiest to use. It was a simple drag and drop software that allowed me to build an awesome landing page. It had all the features I needed and it easily integrated with my email marketing service and website. I use Instapage on all but one of my websites. It also offers a free 30 day trial which is cool.

My number 2 landing page builder would be OptimizePress. This is only because it is the cheapest. It is a one time fee and allows you to build landing pages on 3 different sites. I found this harder to use and it didn’t have the greatest customization abilities but for the price I can’t complain.

The last 2 sites, Leadpages and Unbounce came in last. Unbounce was a lot more per month and I didn’t find an extra benefit from it. Leadpages and Instapage were basically the same price and I found Instapage a lot easier to use. This is why I wouldn’t recommend these 2.

How To Build a Landing Page Using Instapage

If you decided to go with Instapage, I’ll show you step by step how to build it and integrate it with your website. This is a very easy process and can be done within 10 minutes. Let’s get started.

Go to Instapage and create your account. You can get a 30 day free trial.

[] Step 2 – Click on “Create New Page”

[] Step 3 – Click “Pick a Template”

[] Step 4 – Select which template you like.

[] Step 5 – Design your page.

This is where you can fully customize your page. Click on text to put in your own title, and drag it to where you can to go. If you want to change the background click on “edit” in the top left corner of each section.

[] Step 6 – Integrate Email Service.

What I like about Instapage is that it is so easy to connect your email service. First, click on your opt in box (book my trip in my example). Click on “Click Event”, then “popup”. Click on “Form”, then click on the opt in button, then “edit”.

Click on “Integrations” and then pick your email provider. Simply connect to your account and it will be linked!

[] Step 7 – Save and Publish.

Click on save and then publish. When it says “how would you like to publish your page?” most of you will pick Wordpress. Click that (or whatever you’re using) and then click “Install plugin”. Once you installed the Instapage plugin on your site, click on “Send to Wordpress”.

[] Step 8 – Activate Instapage Plugin.

Go to your Wordpress dashboard and go to settings>Instapage. It will ask you to log in to your Instapage account. Use the same info that you used for Instapage. Once you’re logged in, you will see your Instapage plugin on the left dashboard.

Go to Instapage>add new and you should see this page. Custom URL will be your site. Instapage to display should be the page you created on the Instapage site. Once you hit publish your page should now be live! If it isn’t, go back to Instapage.com and publish the page again to Wordpress.

There you have it. You now have a working landing page which is ready to start collecting emails. You can edit it at any time and even run A/B split tests. Play around with each design because certain ones will convert better. Instapage will allow you to track stats which is super cool.

Chapter 8: How To Monetize Your Email List

Imagine you could generate a few hundred or even thousand dollars with a few clicks of the mouse.

Sound too good to be true?

I thought so too at first but my eyes have really been opened.

If you could make a few hundred bucks on each email you sent, imagine if you had a series of automated emails that did this while you sleep.

All it would take is a bit of time upfront, but after that you basically have created your own automated machine.

When I first started I didn’t really plan on monetizing this site because I didn’t know much about it. Over the past few months I’ve learned a lot and have been shown how effective it can be.

What I wanted to do here is share with you what I’ve learned and what my strategy is going forward. This strategy DOESN’T require a large list. All you need is a small list of people who have received value from you, know and trust you.

5 Steps On How To Build An Email Marketing List

The awesome thing about this strategy is that it’s essentially an automated machine. You setup the system and emails ONCE and then you can sit back and watch it work.

Here’s the basic process:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Initiate - Teach them who you are

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Engage - Get them to join or buy

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Ascend - Get them to buy more

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Listen - See what they actually want

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Re-engage - Give them what they want

These 5 steps need to be in this order, otherwise it won’t be as effective. Once you understand this basic process, it’s now time to setup a few autoresponder series, engage with your audience, and create a new income stream.

Just remember that you NEED to initiate before you engage, and you need to listen before you engage more. What’s the point in offering stuff that they don’t want?

Let’s now go through the 5 steps in more detail.

Step 1 – Initiate

The first thing you’ll want to do is initiate with your audience and start building a relationship. This is very important because nobody will buy from you if they don’t know who you are or what you’re about. Here’s what you’ll want to do first:

*
p<>{color:#333;}. Tell them WHO you are

*
p<>{color:#333;}. Tell them WHY you’re doing this

*
p<>{color:#333;}. Tell them the benefits they’ll receive

*
p<>{color:#333;}. What they should expect from you

*
p<>{color:#333;}. What they should do next

If this is done effectively you should only need to do this once. Your customer will now know all about you and what you stand for. They will trust you and want to engage with you.

Normally the initiation process should be done over 2 emails. The first being who you are and what they should expect, and the second being some sort of free value.

Once this is done you can move into the engagement step.

Step 2 – Engage

This is the step that turns readers into customers.

You’ll want to make them some sort of offer. Here’s what my 7 day engagement series looks like (remember that this is done AFTER you’ve initiated with them):

Day 1 – Soft Offer

This is basically an email that has an offer but I’m not directly telling them to join or buy it. In this email I try and “story tell” which is sharing more of my personality and how I got to where I am today in a fun and engaging way.

This is a soft offer because I don’t come out and say “buy this product”. I provide some value and let the reader get to know me better. At the end of this email I’ll briefly talk about something that changed my life or found extremely useful and just talk about it for a second. At no point do I mention that they should buy it.

If they want to check it out cool, but if not it’s not a problem.

Day 2 – Direct Offer

In this email I’ll send the reader a direct offer, which means I’m saying that they should go and check it out. I use this email to talk about a problem they are most likely having and how this product or service will benefit them.

This offer is the same product that I mentioned in email 1 so a lot of people are already familiar with what I’m talking about. I’m just adding in a bit of extra motivation and showing them how this product helped me and how it could help them too.

I just want to mention that I never promote anything that I haven’t used before. I don’t promote random product to make money. They are all things that have helped me out in the past.

Day 3 – Content

On day 3 I’ll send them some more value. This will be a blog post that I have done that is related to the offer in the 2 previous emails. This content will be free and it will provide a lot of knowledge to the reader. This content should be good enough that people would want to pay for it.

It’s important that in this post you don’t have a bunch of spam for them to go and buy a product. This content should get them motivated again to want to learn more.

At the end of this post I’ll mention again the previous offer. I won’t say “buy this” but I’ll do something like “P.S. if you want to learn more about xyz check this out”.

I also don’t send them directly to the thing I’m promoting. I’ll send them to a squeeze page where they’ll have to signup and then I’ll send info about the offer.

Day 4 – No Email

It’s important to give you audience a break for a day to catch up. Sometimes people aren’t able to read your email for a few days, so you want to give them some time to recover.

Day 5 – Wild Card

Day 5 and 6 will be up to you. There’s a few things you can do here:

#
p<>{color:#333;}. More Content – Send them more content related to the previous offer.

#
p<>{color:#333;}. Recap – Recap what you talked about over the past 3 emails.

#
p<>{color:#333;}. New Offer – Talk about a new offer that they might want.

#
p<>{color:#333;}. Day Off – Could send them nothing this day.

What I do here depends on the results I’m getting. If I have a good opt-in rate with the first 3 emails I’ll know that people actually are interested and I’ll continue working on that. I’ll send more related content or do a recap.

If I don’t have a good opt-in rate on the offer I’ll send them a different offer that is somewhat related. Make sure it’s actually something that they’ll want and not some random product.

Day 6 – Wild Card

Pick 1 of the 4 options. I’ve found that 4-5 emails per week is the optimal amount, so schedule your emails according to that.

Day 7 – Off

Take day 7 off as another rest day to allow your readers to catch up.

There you have it!

That’s my 7 day email strategy. Just rinse and repeat. Do the same thing next week with a different offer.

Step 3 – Ascend

A good number of people who engage with you’re offer will buy more.

This is where the real money comes into play.

This is also known as the “upsell”.

This can be done using a free entry level offer and then a paid upsell, or the entry level offer can be fairly cheap with a more advanced upsell.

This only usually works for people who engage in step 2. What about people who don’t buy the first offer?

You change the offer.

Step 4 – Listen

Just because they didn’t want your first offer doesn’t mean they should be forgotten.

The idea of this step is to get them to to tell you exactly what they’re looking for. This can either be done with a survey, or by getting them to opt-in to a different offer. You can ask them questions or get them to click on a link that takes them to a different opt-in. This will automatically take them off the current list and put them into a new engagement series.

The whole idea of this step is to get them into different engagement series and hopefully they’ll find one useful and purchase what you offer.

Now let’s look at the simplest and most impactful step in email marketing.

Step 5 – Re-engage

If someone doesn’t engage and open the first few emails does this mean you should just give up on them?

If you answered yes you’re probably leaving a bunch of money on the table.

There is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t put together a re-engagement autoresponder to try and get people to show interest. This is important because by having people on your list that don’t open your emails, your deliverability will be damaged. This can cause your email to get put into peoples spam folders.

This is just one final try to get some engagement out of your list and if they don’t respond to this email, simply unsubscribe them.

What Now?

Now that you understand the 5 part email sequence it’s time to apply it to your own business.

You need to put together and test different offers and see what works and what doesn’t.

Apply this strategy to your business today and start seeing better results!

 

Chapter 9: Building The Ultimate Passive Income Business

You should have gone through the previous posts about how to make passive income with different techniques already. Now it’s time to put everything together to build the ultimate passive income machine. We will be combining all the ways to make passive income, and each will complement each other. If this strategy is done the right way, it will generate you income for the rest of your life. It will take time, so don’t expect to put in no effort and end up with millions.

I will be starting with the easiest and fastest way to make passive income, so what you’ll want to do is start here and once you have success, move onto the next step and so on. In this post I’ll be giving a general guideline for what to do. I have created more detailed posts on how to do these, so check them out after reading this. I will link everything in this post. Let’s begin with Kindle Publishing.

My Passive Income:

[] Step 1: Kindle Publishing

This will be our first step because kindle publishing is the fastest and easiest way to make money online. You don’t need to be a writer to do this, since 90% of the people creating these books aren’t. We will want our kindle books to relate to our website later on, so if your blog is going to be on cooking, you want to create cooking related books.

Once you’ve made a series of related books, you will not only start making money from the royalties, but you will also be using these books to promote your blog and vice versa. This is so powerful because by having your book on Amazon and taking advantage of the free promotion they have, you can get in front of hundreds of people within a couple days. These people will then go to your blog if they liked your book, and potentially become a customer.

[] Step 2: Create Blog/Website

Now that you have a series of books in a certain niche, it’s time to create your website or blog. Your goal at the start should be to create quality content that is all free for your readers. You want to build a relationship with them first to build trust. Once the relationship is made, you can now start promoting things and monetizing your blog. An example of this can be promoting your kindle books through your blog.

Next thing you’ll want to do is create an email list. An email list is when people subscribe to your mailing list because they want to get more from you. They provide their email address and you provide them with awesome content. This is the most powerful asset you will have because these people already trust you and will basically buy whatever you put in front of them. They will not only buy your books, but they will also buy products you recommend. The most successful people on the internet today say that the money is in the list, so don’t overlook this step.

[] Step 3: Affiliate Marketing

Now that your blog has quality content on it and you have a decent following, you can now start promoting other people’s products as an affiliate. This means that you refer them to a product or service and if they make a purchase, you receive a commission. You should only recommend products that are related to your niche and you have personally tried. DON’T RECOMMEND RANDOM PRODUCTS THAT YOU HAVEN’T PURCHASED. The whole idea behind this is that you are providing them with useful tools and resources that will benefit them in some way. Your first priority should be to help them and making money should come after. This is a win-win situation for you both.

[]Step 4: Investing

The question now becomes “what do I do with the money I’m making”? The answer to this will depend on your personal situation, but a certain percentage should go into your investment account. There are many different ways to invest you money and it really depends on your risk tolerance. The main idea is to take advantage of compounding interest over the long term. Albert Einstein once said, “compounding interest is the most powerful force in the universe”.

You will need to figure out how much of your income you are putting away each month into your account but as a general rule, it should be at least 10% of your monthly income. Obviously the more you put in now the better as it will increase exponentially over time.

You can choose to be an active or passive investor. Being an active investor means you are actively buying and selling stock to receive capital gains. Being a passive investor means you’re investing for the long term and receiving dividend payments. Whichever method you choose will depend on your interest, but you should definitely follow one approach. Investing is the number one way to build wealth, so in my opinion it’s a must.

Conclusion

There you have it. This is the strategy that I’m using to build my passive income machine and how I’ve learned about doing this. The process is relatively easy if you’re willing to put in the time and effort. Don’t expect to become rich overnight. This is a long term wealth building approach and is well worth the time and effort.

You don’t have to follow this exact approach, and doing only one of them will be just fine. I’ve found this to be the best strategy for me and I wanted to share this with you. By having my kindle books making me income up front and promoting my blog, and my blog promoting my books and generating income through affiliate products and then investing a percentage in stocks, I believe that this is the ultimate passive income machine that will make me money for the long term. It’s now time for you to do the same.

 

Conclusion

 

Like I said before, by applying what I talked about in this book with confidence I have no doubt at all that you will be able to earn what you have always wanted to and live a quality life. The only thing holding you back is yourself, so don’t be afraid to get out there and get everything you want.

 

Thank you for reading this book. I absolutely hope that you received value from it. I wish you all the best in your journey, and just remember to never be satisfied, you are worth much more.

 

 

If you received value from this book, then I’d like to ask you for a favor. Would you be kind enough to leave a review for this book on Amazon?

 

I want to reach as many people as possible with this book, and more reviews will help me accomplish that.

Thank you again and best of luck!
