I just wrote in the comments section on a previous post about the fact that I often feel a bit odd putting affiliate links on to tools that I mention. I haven’t got it in me not to as it does make me a little bit of money here from time to time. But I don’t want to feel like an IM product pimp, but money is money. Ah, the dilemma.
But the truth is that I only talk about products that I actually use, and in comparison to many other people that make good money in this game I use very few. All that I use is on my tools to succeed page, and use them I do, although I don’t use free traffic system much now as it takes too much time. And very oddly this totally free way to get backlinks is the one that has been used the least by you lot too.
Anyway, I know many people wonder about the benefits of paid tools or paying someone for backlink submissions, see the video on the sidebar for a paid opinion on Backlinks Philippines 😉
So, I talked not so long ago about how to make $1000 in 30 days. It was about going after tough terms and ranking well for them. And I have to be honest and say that doing it all manually may just have you sweating blood as well as tears. I have kept up my end of the bargain and did a ton of postrunners for a new term. I used backlinks philippines and backlinks solutions and am now using Build my Rank, which I am loving so far. But will review in a month or so.
Now, not so long ago I would be scared stiff by all this mention of stuff that you have to pay for. And I know many reading will be feeling the same. But the truth is that I am now averaging $50 or $60 a day extra from my new keyword, and that has happened in under a month. I haven’t even had to do half of what I mentioned we may need to do in the post about making the extra $1000. So, the Postrunner, Philippines and other services are more than paid for from a few days of earnings for the new keywords. And they are also used for countless other terms and projects.
Worth the money?
You betcha baby.
I talk quite often with someone online who I think I mentioned a while back. He said that he would have joined Postrunner ages ago if I had told him how good this part of the Keyword Academy was. I thought I had. But I guess it is hard to really show people what you mean when you don’t want to come across as an affiliate product earning pimpster.
I really do want to just tell it like it is here. I tell you all exactly what I do to make money and not many other so called “Make Money” do. The site take s up lots of time, Google hates it because of the subject matter, yet I really do enjoy this site very much, and I love the way the comments section has turned in to a major forum in its own right. Leave tips and tricks for others there when you have them, they don 0t have to be about the post they are on.
What I want to make clear is that all the stuff I use I really do recommend. Affiliate links or not, check them out. Heck, most let you cancel if you don’t like them anyway, so there is not much to lose. I just want to tell you that ways to get links quicker really does make such a big difference to how you earn, and how quickly you earn too.
But don’t think you need any tools. You can do it all manually and still get there, it just takes longer is all.
It is just about 2 years now since my Wife left me to go to the UK to work for 3 months as we had zero money. She came back with little over $1500 dollars that we managed to live on for months and months. While she was away I began to take my first steps to learning this game. I did not know what a blog was 2 years ago.
A made so many daft mistakes it was not even funny. I did stupid things until I found Griz and then it all fell in to place and now I wonder how I could not have known the stuff I do now. But that is the learning curve. A year ago we had no money, none. And I mean none. We had debts and had to count pennies for fuel to go buy some potatoes and rice. We even gave up drinking wine. Yeas, it was that bad 😉
But the last year has been a miracle. Sites have aged, we have learned what to do, and we have taken it seriously. Well, until 5 then it is time to chill.
What I want to really get across is that if you really want to make serious money then invest some of what you earn. It may be joining The Keyword Academy to use postrunner, or it may be using Backlinks Philippines. But I can tell you now that getting serious about this game and working hard and efficiently really does pay off. And quickly.
Forward a year to today. We were talking about the money we had in the bank yesterday. I was off my about XXXXX (sorry, changed my mind on spilling the beans, but it was a lot of thousands, a lot).
I thought we had less than we did. I feel a little worried that in such a short space of time I have become so blase about money and how much we have. It is TOO WEIRD. To go from serious debt, well for me anyway, I had never been in debt in my life before, to having more than you actually know what to do with. We will buy a small coastal property in a year or two I think.
Spending a little was the best thing I could have done. Try out a few services, maybe even outsource writing, although I don’t, but look at ways to be more productive with your time and to get them backlinks as quick as you can and from good places.
I don’t write this to make commission from you, and is why it is the one post where I have no affiliate links (poor me).
I do it because I know that if you follow posts I wrote like the one linked to above then you can make a real difference to your finances in a very short space of time.Spinning an article saves you so much time and gets you so many links it is not even fair.
I do n0t claim to be an expert on anything. Apart from knowing that getting on with what you do know is the best way. I know many struggle with work hours, kids, Donkey riding lessons, HAVING to read crap on forums, playing HALO (a game I am told?) and Eastenders 4 times a week, but find the time to do the work.
Content 1 minute, backlinks 9 minutes.
Work on that ratio of content to link building time and you will be as rich as you want to be in a year or two. And this comes form a guy who found out what a blog was 2 years ago this month. Who found out how to make an anchored backlink a lot more recently than that. Who realized that product posts are the easiest way to make commissions even more recently than that.
And who found out that writing stupid ass long posts around the theme of making money online is the best way to sink a load of time in to not making money, especially when you have to write posts with no affiliate product links in them just so you do n0t feel all pimped out and gangsta like.
