Affiliate SEO Is Dead

Hey there friend, Becker here…

 

As promised here is another post from

one of the newest team members at Source

Wave.

 

I’d like to introduce you to Dan Anderson.

 

While Jake from our last post is a master

of testing and client SEO, my man Dan here

works primarily in the affiliate side of things.

 

And boy does he work. Dan is currently

averaging $85,000+ a month just from

affiliate SEO, making him one of

THE guys to listen to right now…

 

And this is all part of where I want

Source Wave to be.

Source Wave - Come At Us Bro

Source Wave – Come At Us Bro

 

Unlike other SEO brands who bring in SEO

“analyst” who do not make a DIME actually

doing SEO, I am bringing in the best of the best

who make hundreds of thousands living and

breathing this stuff.

 

I try not to curse on here, but fudge theory and

screw anything less than pure cash earning

results.

 

At the moment, for free on Source Wave, you

are getting lessons from 3 guys (Myself, Jake,

and Dan) who are bringing in well over 300k

a month combined in SEO.

 

Long story short, we are taking over the world

of SEO and our sole goal is to bring you along

and help you reap in the success in whatever

way you choose (client, affiliate, services etc)

 

Enjoy!

 

Affiliate SEO Is DEAD!

Hey guys, Dan here and I’ll start this off by introducing

myself and telling you what I’ve been up to.

 

I’ve been doing SEO off and on for a couple years now, and I’ve

done a variety of things with it, including clients and affiliate marketing.

Now I just do strictly affiliate stuff.

 

Don’t get me wrong- clients are a great way to make money(especially if

you get high-end ones as emphasized by Becker).

 

I know lots of people who are successful at this.

 

I honestly just started having too much success with my own affiliate sites

and started getting rid of my clients which were not paying me very much money.

The good news is affiliate SEO is more alive than ever.

 

My income this year has been larger than ever- and increasing as the year goes on.

 

I’ll give some basic pointers below.

 

But first, here’s a screenshot of my biggest affiliate account showing the money I’ve earned in roughly the past 6 months:

screenshot

 

I just took this screenshot in the middle of July (you can see the

year-to-date on the right for this one account), and all in all

I’ve made around $350k(including other aff accounts) so far

this year with my biggest month being just over $90k.

 

Around 8 months ago I was making about 10k/month so my

income has only been increasing as I rank more sites.

 

At the moment, this money comes from around 12 money sites.

Sorry it’s hard to show the date of the screenshot for this particular

account without giving away my offers.

 

(If you need more proof ask Becker, he will probably send you

cat pictures as a response though)

 

I will be posting more here in the future so you guys will

have to tell me what you want to hear about.

 

Let me know what you are struggling with and what is preventing you

from making more money doing affiliate stuff or if you are just getting

started and need direction.

 

Do you want me to cover:

  • Monetizing sites?
  • More details on ranking?
  • Keyword research?
  • Finding expired domains?
  • Outsourcing different aspects of it?

Just leave your ideas in the comments.

 

For now, I will not be showing any of my sites as I don’t

really have any little dinky ones I am comfortable exposing

(I’m sure you can understand why).

 

Today I am just going to keep it simple with a few words on doing

affiliate stuff right now and also my opinion on the recent update.

 

Essential Tactics For 2014 Affiliate SEO

Supposedely SEO Is Dead...Again...(Not Really)

Supposedely SEO Is Dead…Again…(Not Really)

I wish I had some crazy secret to tell you, but I do not have any magic tricks.

 

I pick good keywords, build High PR links, and monetize the site.

 

Of course, there are plenty of details on all of these things that you need

to know- and that is what I’m here for- but just realize that you are

in the right place for SEO information and that people making money

from affiliate SEO are simply rinse-and-repeating this process

over and over in a way that is profitable.

 

I do not want to sound redundant on the blog but if you are struggling

with making money from SEO in general- it is probably because you

have not taken enough action.

 

I remember being a beginner and I did not know what the heck I

was doing but I just kept making more and more sites- I probably

made around 50 of them(all crap) before I actually got good and

started making a full time income from this.

 

You can read all day long but you will never have a full understanding

of it unless you are in the trenches every day busting your ass.

 

With that being said, some of the biggest things that allowed me to get

to this level were:

 

Investing In A Blog Network

There is nobody killing Google these days without a blog network. (Here

is our quick 2014 guide on how to make one)

 

If you are short on a budget- just start small.

 

When I was starting out in SEO, I wasn’t making a lot and would go

around getting some lower power PR 0s, 1s, and 2s and then an just

occasional 4 or 5.

 

You can easily make 10k/month in affiliate money off of a network that

costs 1-2k- heck you can even make more than that.

 

If you’re a complete newbie that may seem like a lot to invest but I personally

would maybe invest $200-300 bucks at a time buying 3-4 sites when I had the money.

 

It may hurt in the beginning but it really is the only way to do SEO right now.

 

Promoting High-Paying Offers

AdSense is just not where it’s at these days and I personally

do not mess around with Clickbank.

 

Neither do I know any successful search affiliates that do.

 

Back in the day I would also try to promote signups to dating sites for $1.

Needless to say this was never profitable.

 

You may have already heard of these sites but if not, just go to offervault.com

or odigger.com and start looking through all of the offers they have that pay

anywhere from 20 to several hundred dollars per sale

 

(There are a lot, heck there is a Russian Bride CPA offer that pays BIG!… If

only I could find some decent keywords for that =D )

 

Having A Linking System That Works Over And Over

lather

Pretty much all I do for links is this:

-15-40 High PR Links(depending on the kw)
-100-200 Web 2.0s on the more competitive kws(definitely does help and is

necessary in some cases- but PR links are far more important)

 

Moving forward I am  going to be trying some other things such as

building out full-blown social profiles for my sites- because sometimes

if you are going after a competitive keyword your site will just “stick” on page

2 even after all of your PBN links have been built- but I have not been using

this at all with my current sites.

 

I am sure these other extraneous signals are getting more important, though.

I used a lot of spun content for backlinking a lot of my current sites but am now

actually only using unique for all links(I think it is the safer way to go moving forward).

 

My anchor text profile usually looks like this:

1 exact match link for each keyword/page
4 almost-exact match links
30% Topic (related to the general niche but without including keywords)
30% Misc (Click here, website, etc.)
40% URL

Of course, I try to put all my optimized anchor text on PR sites.

 

I do not use GSA or any types of links that are not removable on

money sites- in the current algorithm this is a death wish.

 

So there are some quick notes to help and reaffirm what you have

already seen here on Source Wave. Pretty basic stuff and nothing crazy.

 

In the next post, I will address a specific area in more detail.

 

In the meantime, I’m going to talk about the big topic of the day- the

new update and how it effects us.

 

You may have already read about this in this great post by Jake

I figured I would give my take on it as well.

 

The New Update: How Does It Affect Affiliates?

So sometime in the last few months Google

released a new update(I do not keep up with all

the update names as I just watch my sites) that is

causing an uproar in the SEO community.

 

Let’s just call it the Google “Sandbox”.

 

It is basically causing people to want to punch their

dog because now when you make a new site and

start hitting it with PR links, you tend to see stuff like

this(an inconsistent, small-ranging, back and forth dance- let’s call

it the “midget” dance):

 

midget

 

And this(sites “rockbottoming” and then coming back up):

 

rockbottom
In the past, these two “dances” were never really seen to

the extent that they are now- but they have appeared on

virtually every site I have created during the past few

months(I would say since March).

 

In addition to these weird dances, it is also taking longer

to rank a site now. I’m not sure exactly how long this new

timeframe will be to hit the #1 spot, but I don’t expect it to

be much longer than 1-2 more months than normal.

 

The top Serpfox graph above is actually from a new site(~2 months old)

that is sitting around number 10 right now- if Serpfox had bigger report

history I would able to show you it coming up- but you can tell it’s a new

site anyways because of how it is dropping down into the 300s and coming back up again.

 

So, the key points to know about the update are that:

-You will see weird dances as shown above
-It will likely take longer to rank your site than normal

Just keep these in mind as you read the rest of the article.

 

So What Is This Update Targeting Exactly?

While I have not figured out a way to get around this new

update- and I doubt anyone has- I can say that it is for sure

targeting at least one thing: DOMAIN AGE.

 

Any site I ranked before this new update, and took care of, stil

l looks like this(ranking with just pr links):

 

numberone

 

In fact, just as an aside, I ranked the above site with

about 20 pages of horrible spun content on the money

site (do not do this! ) because I was feeling lazy and

wanted to get a bunch of content on it.

 

The main page I wanted ranked and it hasn’t changed since

this new update- and yes I have since replaced all the content

with unique.

 

But I just say this to give you some encouragement that Google is

not the superpower you may think it is, and in fact, they may

actually be getting dumber at detecting SEO sites(read below).

 

But back to the main point- Google has changed nothing as

far as High PR links being the bread and butter of SEO right

now

 

They still signal authority and trust to Google and bump your rankings

up and up- exactly as before. Even with all these dances your new site

will get up to the top of the second page or on the third most of the time

within 2 months.

 

When the new update came out every single one of my establsihed sites stayed

right where they were- in fact, I only first noticed this “Sandbox” when I went

and made a new batch of money sites.

 

So Let’s Talk About Age:

The “age” that is important to Google(and us) is not when your money site’s domain

was registered- or even when it was first indexed- it is actually the time when you

start building powerful links to it.

 

I know this because I had around 5 domains laying around which I had registered

back in January, I had put content on them and indexed them each with 1 pr 0 link.

 

I didn’t do anything else with them because I was lazy and had a lot more active sites to work on.

 

Then about 2 months ago I started building a variety of Higher PR links to them- these sites are

still “sandboxed” in the sense that they are slower to come up in rankings and they

do the midget dance shown in my graph

 

However, absolutely none of these domains (old registration/index date) do the

rockbottom dance- only the ones that were registered and indexed within the past

3 months do this.

old domain age is powerful these days!

old domain age is powerful these days!

I could go into details about why I’m sure these two dances are distinct thing

s that Google is doing on sites in separate situations(you can just read above to get

the gist of it) but it’s not even important to know as far as making money,

so let’s just get on with it…

 

All of this tells me that Google is really looking at age- and making the “authority building”

process for a site require a little more time.

 

And This is a VERY Good Sign- Because It Means…

It appears that Google still doesn’t know how to do sh** about blog networks.

 

Instead, they are resorting to other what I would call “desperate” tactics to

discourage SEOs- namely just delaying the time it takes for a site to rank-

but also rockbottoming your site for a while which I suspect is

almost like a “fake penalty” made to discourage people.

 

If you have an old site that is still ranking- they still respond to pr

links in the exact same way.

 

If you use an expired domain as your money site- they still rank as before.

It is only when you use a brand new site that you encounter these weird

new debacles- and I’m confident that new sites will still rank to the

top 3 if you just wait it out.

 

And as with every update, people start running away from SEO left and right

leaving us with less competition.

 

In one of my niches there were some guys killing it with mass spam links, ranking

above me for anything they wanted- and one of the other updates Google released

around the same time(targeting spam as they periodically do) wiped them out-

 

I haven’t seen them since.

 

Plus my sites ranking with just pr links moved up into their spots.

 

So just know that nothing has changed as far as PR links being the

core of SEO- it will likely just take a little longer than normal(if you are

using a brand new domain).

 

And of course, follow the on-page advice given in the last post on the

blog- and the fact that other signals(i.e. social) are likely more

important now and in the future(I am definitely going to get more into this myself).

 

With that in mind, here are the 2 crucial things to know about

handling your linking these days:

 

Point #1: Do Not Remove Your Links When You See This Happening:</strong>
rockbottom

Before I was aware of this new “Sandbox” update I would see my sites

go down into the 300s and what would I do?

 

Remove all the optimized anchor text links on my PR sites- which is

the wrong move.

 

In the past if you had a site do this it meant it was over-optimized or had

another form of penalty- and removing the links

and then re-adding them in a less-optimized fashion would bring

back your rankings quickly.

 

However, if you see one of your sites go down this far now, and you remove

the links, your site will be harder to bring back up (tested this and confirmed).

 

So just completely expect this new “rockbottom” dance and do not react to it- I’ve

had sites down in the 300s for as much as 3 weeks and then they come right back on

page 2 like nothing happened(I left all the PR links in place).

 

Point #2: Dial-Back Your Link Velocity(Imperative For Brand New Domains)

 

In the past if I had a keyword that would rank with 20 high pr links I would

build about one link every other day and the site would rank in 2 months.

For any medium competition keyword that is worth money- you’re not going

to rank that fast now with a brand new domain.

 

So there is no point building out your entire anchor text profile and using up all

of your links/PBN sites at that pace- this leaves you with a potentially unnatural

drop-off in your link velocity and your site is not going to rank that fast anyway.

 

What I am doing as a rule of thumb is cutting my standard link velocity in half-

so now I will have 20 links being built out over a period of 80 days-

rather than 40 days(1 link every 4 days).

 

Extra Tip: Use An Expired Domain As Your Money Site If Possible

If you are creating new sites and want to avoid most of these

issues- just get an expired domain from Godaddy auctions and

use that for your money site (not an already expired domain but

the regular auctions where you get it and it maintains its WHOIS

creation date).

 

Now, a lot of people find doing this hard because using expired domains

that have already had natural link-building done on them can be fickle

with how they rank in your particular niche.

 

Sometimes you can build 5 pr links to them and they start ranking very highly-

then you build 5 more and their rankings disappear completely(this was the

case before and after this update- its just an expired domain thing).

However- realize that when it does work it works really well.

 

I have heard a lot of frustration on forums about this but have never

heard anyone address the real issue.

 

The Real Issue Is Something You Can’t Entirely Diagnose

And Control(the link profile of the site)- The Solution Is To Go

Through A Quantity Of Domains.

 

I am sure Becker has a guide on here about finding good expired

domains to use as money sites, I won’t go into every detail but

basically you are looking for a site with:

 

-Branded links/not about a specific topic(names of people, music bands, radio stations, abbreviated organizations, etc.)
-Lowish amount of links(typically 500-1500 in Majestic)
-All natural links(no spam)

 

Finding a site with the above metrics is pretty much all

you can do. At that point, you typically have to go through

about 5 of them until you get one that works.

 

I’m personally on the hunt for about 10 of them right now

because I know only 2 of them will probably work for a

massive keyword I’m salivating over.

 

However, keep in mind that buying a batch of branded

domains like this is not a waste of money because for any

sites that do not work as your money site- you just throw

them in your network and use them as a PBN site to build links from.

 

I give this last tip because I think it is becoming more of the

way to go in the future with this new update.

 

So that’s it for now- mainly just a rant off the top of my head.

What Is 100% For Sure Not Working In Google

Hey what is happening Becker here….

 

So over the past month a TON has subtly changed

in Google…So I have been getting together with my

research team to bring you EXACTLY what is working

and not working

 

With that being said, this post is written by my head

SEO researcher Jake Tanner. He is currently doing

well over $40k a month from SEO clients and affiliate

sites.

 

On top of that I am aiming to make Source Wave the

best source of REAL actionable result based (not BS

hippy theory based) SEO information online.

 

Not only will I still be doing episodes of SourceTV, but

Jake and a new member I am bringing on (he is doing

90k+ JUST from affiliate sites) will be posting exactly

what is working them on the client and affiiliate side.

 

This means every month you will get tips and REAL data

for 3 people pulling in over 300k+ a month combined from

SEO

 

3 words : Top….That…S#@t

 

Without further a due, lets get into the big changes in SEO

from Jake…

 

What Is Working Now In SEO…And Is FOR SURE Not!

From: Jake

Many people are complaining about the new 30 day

Google sandbox that I have seen myself lately and read a

bout in many different places across the web.

 

This doesn’t really effect too much what us SEO’s are doing. We

just continue to build good links and good on page ranking signals and

we will still rank after that 30 days are up. Let me give an example of a

site I am working on started about June 10th. (See some of the results below)

 

1

2

 

Over the 30 days I just continued to build good PR links to my site

and when we first started I released a press release for the site.

 

I want to go over some of the key factors now that are working and

aren’t working after the Panda 4/Payday loans update, many of these factors

are related to on page changes.

 

What NOT To Do After The New Google Updates:

 

Do Not Try To Rank Skeleton Sites Right Away

Skeleton sites (aka super thin sites) are not the way to go

anymore panda 4 is putting an end to those.

 

Of course there are exceptions to everything but I recommend

when you start a site it has 10 pages of content with each page having

at least 750 words on each page.

 

If you are targeting an easy keyword this is not 100% necessary, but

in harder niches it will give you a boost. Also SUPER made sure your

content is 100% unique.

 

If you have pages with the same content over and over (think index

pages and archive pages) de-index these. These are crap pages and

actually lower Googles view of your site since they have to separate

duplicate content from basic inner content of most sites.

 

You can easily do this with a simple service like IWriter (Just get $5

articles)

 

 

Make it good content not spun crap. Also add media (such as Youtube Videos )

to any of the more important pages on your site such as images or youtube

videos to keep engagement higher

 

Don’t stop link building

Just because you aren’t seeing the ranking increases right away a

anymore you need to continue to steady build links to your site over time to help to it rank.

 

If you follow our tactics building good pr links not repeating keyword

anchors and mixing in generic links you will rank, it just may take more

time to see the results. (30 days seems to be the most common)

 

The results will come. You saw how I am still getting results I was continuously building links

that whole 30 days to the site before it finally jumped up.

 

Do Not Repeat Keywords in Your URL:

Example of this is a URL such as jakeseogroup.com and with inner pages.

You DON’T want to do this: jakeseogroup.com/seo-syracuse the URL should be

jakeseogroup.com/syracuse you are a lot less likely to be hit with over optimization this way.

 

Partial EMDs still work great so if you are going to work with a criminal defense lawyer in

Syracuse NY I would create a URL such as criminaldefensesyracuse.com and leave the

keyword lawyer out and you are a lot less likely to get penalized for something such as that also.

 

Do Not Have a Slow Site

Site speed is actually a decent size ranking factor. I have had sites stuck on the bottom of page

one and a few days to a week after we got their load time down they would shoot to the top 3

for the keyword with no new links.

 

The faster your site the more Google will actually crawl it and make updates for you.

Use this site here to help analyze your site speed and fix any issues you may have: http://gtmetrix.com/

 

If you can get a site speed down to 1-2 second load time, it will help a lot. I know that is not possible

for all sites but try to get as low as you can.

 

Do Not Ignore Social

We have seen tests that social shares/social signals (shares of your url on twitter/facebook/google+)

can pass some page rank and help with good ranking factors now.

 

You will not rank with them alone but they are a part of the ranking factor and I believe in the

future it will help our cause. Basic things like buying some social shares before you send links

to your site makes them look more natural and helps to solidify rankings.

 

What To Do Going Forward:

A few quick things you need to keep in mind are

 

 Silos still work great. Continue to build those out on

your site just make sure you are not over optimized with your

on page with the suggestions below…

 

Follow Wikipedia’s on page they get it right:

wiki

 

Title of Page:

The title tag is really important when it comes to SEO and there are two good ways to structure your title tags.

 

1. Primary Keyword and/or Secondary Keyword | Brand Name

OR

2. Brand Name | Primary Keyword and/or Secondary Keyword

 

If your term is really competitive and your brand doesn’t have much authority

I would put the keyword term first in the title tag.

 

If you have more authority and the keyword is easier to rank for I would put the

brand name first as it can help increase click through rates.

 

Meta Descriptions:

It is actually better to write your meta description as an AD

to entice people to click through to your site when they see your

search result rather than to just stuff it with your keywords.

 

Search engines don’t use this as much anymore for determining

the best search results. I would actually use a related Keyword

in the Meta Description.

 

Make sure when building out your on page that you are not

over optimized for your main keyword by viewing the pages source code.

 

(Most browsers you can right click the page and select this option.)

 

Once you are looking at the source use the search or find feature (ctrl+F)

and type in your keyword. This is how many times Google will actually see your keyword on that page.

 

This means your keyword in the menu and links count. You want this to not go over 1% of the total

words in your content. Many times I do this much much less ~0.5% keyword density

and use LSI or related terms in the content instead works much better.

 

If your keyword is in your URL and in your Title tag I would use and LSI/related term for your H1 tag.

You can still rank with them all matching but I like to vary these so that I rank for more terms

and I am less likely to be hit with over-optimization.

 

So many times I see this as the biggest issue with people trying to rank sites. I look at their page

and their keyword is blasted all over the page. You only need your keyword 2-3 times in a 750 word

article and then use related or LSI Terms.

 

It also REALLY helps if your keyword is in h1 font near the top of your page, Google will often pick

this up and replace your description with it as seen on Becker’s SourceShred site

 

The description for this site changed based on the initial text of the page

The description for this site changed based on the initial text of the page

 

Parasite pages, social and web 2.0s are ranking better for me

with just pr links and not so much with just GSA or mass spam.

 

They seem to stick longer this way and rank a little better. Don’t get me wrong

I still have properties ranking with just GSA links but for newer SEO’s you will want to stick with just

PR links and varied anchor texts you will get better results.

 

Like We Said, Subtle But BIG Changes

What we would like you to do below is comment on some of the things

you have seen happening in Google or that have happened to your site.

 

Perhaps the biggest change is the time delay Google now has on

sites ranking, and we are trying a lot of “off the wall” tactics to

get around it

 

See you next time!

Febuary Income Report

Hi there….This is Becker,

And according to our Facebook poll you want me to do more income

reports explaining how much internet money  we make at Source Wave

and then break down how we do it…

 

I don’t want to do that…It’s boring as hell. You and I have way better

things to do than breaking down my income like accountants.

 

So with out dramatics I made $167,000 profit in January and $163,000

in February… Here’s a screenshot of a million dollars if you need

proof that I am not a joshing with ya…and yes I know I keep a

awkward amount of money in my checking account

 

Now that that is over…What I really want to talk about is how

you can increase YOUR income. Because lets face it, at the end of the day

the person you care about most is YOU and since I love to entertain

lets just cut to the chase and talk about your favorite subject.

 

 

So…

How much money do you make?

Do you want more?

Do you want to be able to make more at will?

 

Good…because today I am going to literally tell you how to make more

at will… And don’t worry I am not going to go all Tony Robbin’s on you

and tell you the secret to making tons of money is smiling a lot. It’s not.

 

There’s a bit more to success than being happy all the time =)

 

You see I am going to do something weird and explain this to you based

on my real life factual experiences. Let me explain….

 

Oh and before we get into this I am going to be very blunt, use tasteless

humor, make grammatical mistakes and use profanity…You have been warned

 

ALSO…I am going to be a total asshole in this post. I will say mean offensive

things. BUT, know that I am in YOUR corner (even when your not) and I

truly 100% in my heart believe YOU can be super successful and I WANT

you to be…So try not to get your panties in a bunch as you read this.

 

Anyhoo….You see in December I made around $105,000. This made

me happy because my goal last year was to make my first million, which I did.

 

Come January I was pissed about this though,because  my goal this year is to make

2 million dollars in a year. That means I have to make $166,000 a month.

 

In short, unless I increased my monthly income by $60,000 I was not going

to hit my goal and when I do not hit my goals I die a little inside. This left

me in a pretty intimidating spot.

 

So here is EXACTLY what I did…I CHOSE to increase my income by $60,000 dollars

 

I didn’t work harder, though I always work hard

I didn’t over stretch my self

I didn’t do anything that clever either

 

Working hard does not = more money

 

I literally just chose to increase my income. Now…How on earth can I just choose

to make more money..

 

The answer is simple : I UNDERSTAND how to…

 

And that is simply it. If you have the UNDERSTANDING to make more money

and you apply it…You make more money…

 

And in this post I am going do my very best to teach you exactly how to do the

same. When your done reading this you will know EXACTLY how to choose

to make more money and what you need to do to accomplish that…

 

So without further a due, lets talk about you…

 

How To Decide That Your Going To Get Richer

I hate talking to people about success, money, and happiness….

 

Why?

 

Because unless I am talking to a successful person, people VIOLENTLY

disagree with me. I have been called an idiot, misinformed, and even delusional

just for telling people that they can have whatever they want in life.

 

I tell them they can and they will try to their death to prove me wrong.

Its the most absurd  thing on the planet.

 

Most peoples reaction when I tell them that they can be successful… People think pretty low of themselves

 

Luckily though, these conversations educate me on the reasons why people do not

take control of their lives. To the point that I can pretty much counter any objection

they have to why the cannot hit success.

 

Now I tell people all the time “Dude, you can literally just decide to make money”

 

Besides laughter the counters I almost always here are

-No Alex, most people who try fail…You are just the 1% that succeeded

-I do not have the skills to make more money

-Not everyone can be successful

-You found a niche your really good at

 

So basically what I take away from this is everyone thinks they are skilless

un special idiots and I magically came across some special skills and then

won the lottery. Facepalm…

 

Fun Fact: When I started my business my only skill set was washing toilets

on a Air Force base, and FYI I was HORRIBLE at it…. The toilets there looked

AWFUL

While we are on the topic of toilets

Anyhoo, while I can address each of these “issues”, what I prefer to do

is address the root problem…

 

The main reason people choose to not take control of their incomes is

they do not want to fail, and believe there is a greater chance that

they WILL fail than they will succeed.

 

So of course the solution is to throw up your hands,  wake up at 6 am

every day to go do stuff you really would prefer not to do and accept

the fact that you will never own a Lamborghini or take a vacation

to space.

 

That’s great…Except one day good sir your going to die and money

means absolutely NOTHING. All that matters is your life experience

and if you are okay with accepting ANYTHING but an amazing life

where you reach your goals and live your dreams…Well you might

as well already be dead.

 

So before I get any farther know that I am encouraging you to

chase your DREAMS. If you spend your time at a JOB your

only chasing money. Money in exchange for your life

experience is a pretty bad deal in my opinion.

 

Anyhoo, now that I have said mean things back to the main point.

 

People truly believe that they will most likely fail…So they do not

take action OR believe they can choose their income..

 

To that I say this…. If you knew EVERYTHING that Donald

Trump knows…Would you have trouble making a million dollars

this year?

 

OF COURSE NOT!

 

If you knew everything good ol Donald knows you would not be wasting

your time reading this blog post and you would be out there making

mountains of money…

 

Every person who is successful just understands what you do not

 

The point IS that what is stopping you from choosing to make

tons of money is simply the knowledge in your head. More

so the UNDERSTANDING of how to make money

 

So if we break this down to a kindergarten equation

 

UNDERSTANDING = INCOME

 

So….If you’re tracking me right now, then you already know

how to CHOOSE your income…

 

You CHOOSE your income by CHOOSING to increase your

UNDERSTANDING….

 

By golly gosh…Simple isn’t it? People that make a ton of

money do not wave some magic wand, they simply choose

to increase their understanding of how to reach their goals.

 

So let that sink in for a sec…. All you have to do to get richer TODAY

is CHOOSE to increase your understanding and apply it.

 

THAT IS IT…

 

Now with that being said…The reason why 95% of entrepreneurs

fail is not because of some dumb shit luck. It is because 95%

of entrepreneurs behave like greedy unimaginative children.

 

Instead of seeking understanding, they seek money. They

try to start a big business, when they lack the core understanding

to run a simple hot dog stand.

 

In Uptown Dallas….Where I live. People constantly tell me

they are gonna get into real estate, stocks, oil and gas. Every time they do…they

fail…Why? Because they lack the core understanding to sell a pizza

or manage a hamster. Its a never ending cycle of failure due to the lack

of understanding that you need to FOCUS on understanding.

 

The same goes for online marketers. They start trying to make money

online and their only focus in on making money. Of course they always

fail at first (I did) because they lack the understanding… They then quit

before their understanding reaches a point where they make money.

 

Its really that simple. If a entrepreneur has  understanding he

ALWAYS succeeds. If a marketer focuses on growing his

understanding he will INEVITABLY guaranteed make money.

 

It’s not luck. If you put me in front of a computer a 2 years ago

I wouldn’t be able to do much. I had no understanding.

 

Now if you give me an internet connection and sit me

in front of a computer  I will have it shitting

money by the end of the month.

 

My secret is not that I have some fancy SEO skill (though

I am pretty handy at it), my secret I understand how to

get people from point A to B and make them buy stuff.

 

Same thing with my partner. Last month we helped

a dating company have their biggest product launch of

all time with our UNDERSTANDING…Same goes

for the guys at Money Mindset who we helped have

a 500k+ launch.

 

It ALL comes down to CHOOSING to increase your

understanding.

 

Let’s Put This Into Practice

Knowing what I explained above, what do you think I decided

to do when I needed to essentially double my income in less than

a month…

 

I instantly sought to increase my understanding of how to make

more money….

 

I sought ways to sell better, I sought ways to use my time better,

I sought ways to expand my business more intelligently, I sought

how to do everything better than I already was.

 

I did not seek money. I sought knowledge and combined it with massive action.

Because like our 1st grade teacher told us, the more you know the farther you go!

 

 

I did this in a few ways which I will explain later on. In short though I spoke with

and learned from people that are richer than me and better than me at business. I basically

sought THEIR understanding.

 

Then all I did was work hard and applied it

 

It truly is that damn simple.

 

How To Increase Your Income Starting Today

Now…Am I telling you if you read a few books you’re going to increase your income

by 60,000 dollars this month?…No…If your just starting out you probably won’t

increase your income at all.

 

Understanding has a momentum to it, it starts slowly and once you get

going its return exponentially grows.

 

In short, the understanding you start obtaining today is going to

start putting money in your pocket a month or two from now. Do not

focus on the money though…Focus on growing your understanding.

 

The first thing you need to understand, is that by choosing to focus

on understanding you can choose your income. I have pretty much

beaten that horse dead though

 

Then, if your brand new to making money for yourself, the first thing you

need to understand is HOW people get rich and HOW they think.

 

Almost every self made millionaire I know views money and wealth

in the same way. Its not a coincidence either.

 

I could write a small book for you on this, but I rather just suggest

THIS BOOK to you. Within a year of reading it I hit a millionaire

net worth.

 

Then whatever business you want to get into, you need to do the following

 

1.Make friends with people who RUN similar or the same businesses

This is exactly how I got into SEO and making products online. I met my good

friend Alex Trifiro who was making $150 a day doing SEO and learned from him.

 

In the past year I have watch him go from that, to $2000-$3000 a day from

FB ads.

 

Same thing goes for products. I originally got started by helping Cass for free.

We became good friends through it, and I developed a core understanding of

selling.

 

Case and point, FIND people who are doing EXACTLY what you want to

do and befriend them in any way possible. They have the understanding

you need.

 

2. Focus On Learning How The Ground Floor Works

If you want to get into selling houses, do not start by selling houses.

 

Start by selling yard signs…

 

If you want to open a clothing store, do not start by opening a clothing

store. Start by working at a clothing store.

 

When Ralph Lauren was 25 he was a sales assistant at Brooke’s Brothers

 

Donald Trump started everything by working at his dads real estate firm

 

Zuckerberg learned his first coding from making simple php games for

his siblings

 

If you cannot sell a cannot sell a yard sign you have no business selling

houses because you do not have the UNDERSTANDING to guarantee

success. You have to UNDERSTAND the bottom, before you can CONTROL

the top

 

3.  BURY Yourself In Information About Your Business

This is pretty common sense…But not to common

 

I have all sorts of friends who invest in stocks and similar

things. They will talk about it all day and tell me I need to be doing it.

 

The hil-fecking-larious thing is they have never bought

any advanced training on the topic, never attended a stock

event, never paid a millionaire investor to coach them.

 

If your looking to get started in something, you should

be knees deep in information about it. You should be

hanging out with people that do it and are GOOD at

it. You should be PAYING people to tell you how they

do it.

 

Live, eat, and breathe KNOWLEDGE. The best place

to get this from is DIRECTLY from the people who

are killing it as well.

 

Find courses that have helped people and BUY THEM

Find events about your topic and GO TO THEM

Find people who are better than you and PAY THEM

 

Before becoming Darth Vader Anakin got his understanding from Jedi’s who were already smashing it…He then tried to kill them…Don’t do that it’s rude

4. Take Reckless CHALLENGING Action

The final thing you MUST do is take reckless action with your understanding…

 

Now I am not telling you to take out a 100k loan and blow your life savings

on your brand new business…

 

What I AM telling you to do is take action without worrying about everything being

perfect. In fact do not even aim for it to be perfect, aim for it to be DONE.

 

The biggest thing I see holding back most entrepreneurs is they get “stuck in the weeds”

worrying about problems they do not even have yet. They get stuck in a “what if” mindset.

 

For example I will be speaking somewhere and I will give the audience an INSANE blueprint

for getting clients (You can actually see it here…It earned me over 400k in new income this year).

 

Now…here is what you do when someone gives you a golden idea…You go DO IT! However, every

single time people will hesitate to take action and ask questions like

-What if the client has and HTML site

-What if we do not get the client fast results

-What if Google changes their algorithm

 

While these are somewhat relevant questions, THEY DO NOT MATTER at this point in time.

The only thing that matters is closing your client. Then when you have the client, you will

naturally solve these issues when and IF they become an issue. Until then it is TOTALLY

irrelevant.

 

All of my biggest businesses I have literally thrown together in a span of weeks. I wanted

an SEO outsourcing service, about 7 days later Source Autopilot was made. I wanted a

business coaching mastermind, pow 3 days later Source Dynasty was made.

 

90% of the “problems” you think you will run into NEVER occur and the other

10% will naturally work themselves out.

 

NOW…The bigger point, when you take challenging action you gain MASSIVE understanding.

This how you get richer and richer, because you get better and better at what your

doing. You also learn through trial and error.

 

Challenging action is when you step out of your comfort zone. Whether it is doing something

better than before, doing it differently, or trying something completely new YOU must

do this if you want to grow richer.

 

The main reason a lot of people who work REALLY hard at their business still fail is

they stay within their comfort zone and keep doing the same thing over and over.

 

I know entrepreneurs who work 10 hour days and still do not make any money. The reason

for this is because they are not doing anything new. They are working but not

growing their understanding.

 

You MUST understand hard work alone does NOT grow your understanding. This

is why jobs are like poison to becoming rich. You bust your ass all day, but your

essentially doing the same thing every day, thus your understanding stop growing

about a month in.

 

With that being said, I always work hard and I will outwork anyone. However,

I did not work ANY harder in the when I was increasing my income. I did the

same level of “work” but made twice as much.

 

This is because, I was constantly breaking my comfort zone by doing things

better and faster. Thus my understanding is constantly sky rocketing, thus

my income keeps growing.

 

Putting It Into Action

In the 2nd part of this year myself and Cass will be breaking into the health

product niche, which is totally new to us. We are already applying

the exact steps I just laid out right before and will again be increasing

our income at will.

 

(Just FYI we will still be doing SEO, however the health niche

is about 2,000 times bigger than SEO. By the time I am 30 my

goal is to have a net worth well over 50 million, and this is

how we are gonna do it …at about 7 million current so

got a ways to go)

 

Anyhow, we are already doing all the steps I just covered.

 

Step 1: Make friends with people 

We have already reached out to the best sellers

of health products online and have friends in the niche.

 

We have also became good friends with several physical business

multi millionaires. Guys making well over a million a month. Just

from the simple conversations I have learned stuff that would of

taken me years to figure out.

 

Step 2: Understand How The Ground Floor Works

My big goal is physical health products. However we have never

sold a health product before, so the first step is launching a pure

info product.

 

We are also doing consulting for companies in niches like dating

so we can understand HOW to sell in different markets (actually

just launched a product for the largest dating company in the world

and learned a TON)

 

Again, we are learning how to operate at the ground level before

investing our butts in something and the understanding we are

gaining is incredible.

 

3. Bury Your Self In Information

Simply put…We are just paying the best of the best

to teach us and we are buying up every course

we can on selling.

 

Again, massive understanding bumps

 

4.Reckless Challenging Action

With our latest dating client, we had NEVER

launched a major dating product NOR had we ever

written sales material for one.

 

Instead of sitting around with the 1000 “what ifs” we took the

client and took massive challenging action outside of our

comfort zone.

 

A few months later they had their biggest launch in years and the

“what ifs” NEVER became an issue. The biggest bonus now is we

clearly understand how to launch in other niches. Understanding,

understanding, UNDERSTANDING.

 

 

And just like that we are choosing to grow our income, and this is

how next year I am going to CHOOSE to make 4 million and the year

after CHOOSE to make 8 million.

 

Get Off The Sidelines

Regardless of where you are in your life right now,  YOU have full

control of your income. You will be as rich or poor as you choose to be.

 

You are not held back by ANYTHING but the understanding you lack. And

by choosing to not grow your understanding you are choosing to be poor.

 

I firmly without a shadow of a doubt believe that EVERY SINGLE person

can become extremely successful.

 

And before you debate me there, I have seen a guy without limbs speak

and blow away audiences of 10s of thousands of people. (Google Nick

Vujic)

 

So yeah…You literally have no excuse. You can be INCREDIBLY wealthy

and its your choice. On top of that, if your still going to sit around telling

yourself not every can do it or that you cannot do it…Well, quite frankly

you’re an idiot and probably deserve the super average bleh life your

going to live.

 

You are your greatest asset, you can do things in a way NO ONE else can

and you can choose to start becoming more successful TODAY. All you need

is the understanding to do so..

 

So with that being said….

 

How much money do you make?

Do you want more?

Are you going to chose to make more?

 

It’s totally up to you
