Introduction

Many – and I mean many – Internet marketers have gotten their start through

affiliate marketing. Consider this – you can start making money without creating

a product, without dealing with support nightmares and even without a website.

And you can get started immediately.

You get paid by bringing buyers to sellers. When they buy, you get a “piece of

the action” -- called a commission. So, if a prospect buys a $50 product, and the

product pays 50% commission – you will make $25.

In other words, you are like a commission-only salesperson. Except that you

don't have to do all the selling – or, often, much selling at all. You don't have to

do take any “orders”. You don't have to meet prospects “face-to-face.” All you

have to do, often, is

simply introduce interested people to the product

. And

Getting Ready!

Where Do We Find Buyers?

Finding products to sell is a small fraction of the Affiliate Marketing Plan. The

“meat” of affiliate marketing is to finding buyers. Trust me, if there are buyers,

there will be products to sell.

In general, there are two really great types of buyers – people who will buy no

matter how the economy is doing.

1. The first group is called “

desperate buyers

” -- they have a problem and

they

need a solution

– now. For instance, people who are in pain. Or,

they’re facing a financial crisis (like an impending foreclosure). They are

looking for a solution as quickly as possible – and these folks have a credit

card hot in their hands searching earnestly for a solution.

2. The second group is “

passionate (or rabid) buyers

.” You know these

everything on a particular topic

. It can be an interest. Maybe golf. Maybe

training your dog. Maybe pet grooming or anything like that.

Groups of folks with a common interest we call “

niches

.”

Around You!

The easiest way of them all is to look around you.

What are those things that your friends and relatives simply can't live without?

What's Oprah talking about? Start by looking around you and notice what people

are looking for. Look around for opportunities to jump into.

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 5 of 20

Speed Profit Code

Marketplaces

Another way to find hot buyers is to look at what are hot sellers. This actually

can kill two birds with one stone – not only can you find hot markets, you can find

the products that are popular with buyers.

For instance...

Nearly all marketplaces – eBay, Amazon, Clickbank – and the like will also have

a list of hot products.

Here are some good links to use:

eBay Pulse

http://pulse.ebay.com/

Amazon:

http://amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/

Tip: A useful rule-of-thumb is if a particular book is ranked 20,000 or higher, it is a

good product.

Check if there's a magazine on the topic:

http://www.amazon.com/magazine-newspaper-subscriptions/

Amazon Bestsellers in a variety of products:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/

The Electronic Marketplace, Clickbank:

http://www.clickbank.com/marketplace.htm

Let's say I'm looking for a product with hot buyers. If we look under the “Health &

Fitness Category” we see products which are listed in Clickbank's definition of

“most popular” and then you will be able to see a list of products.

Where Do We Find Products?

Well, while eBay and Amazon both have affiliate programs,

Clickbank

is very,

very popular with Internet Marketers. One of the appeals of Clickbank products

is that they are

digital products

– meaning they are great for impulse buys.

How To Become An Affiliate

You can easily sign up for Clickbank as an affiliate, here:

https://www.clickbank.com/affiliateAccountSignup.htm?key=

Once you are an affiliate with Clickbank you can promote any of the offers in their

marketplace.

Just go to their marketplace and look around. You can click on the “pitch page”

to see the product’s sales page, and you can see how much you will make when

you sell the product.

Clickbank is not the only place where you can find products to promote as an

affiliate. I previously mentioned eBay and Amazon as companies that have

affiliate offers.

There are also other affiliate networks like Clickbank, such as

PayDotCom and ejunkie

.

Some individual and smaller companies have affiliate programs, but you

may want to be careful in selecting some of them because they may not have

reliable payouts.

You can discover affiliate programs for companies or other Internet Marketers by

looking down at the bottom of their product page and they will often have a link

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 7 of 20

Speed Profit Code

that says “affiliates” or “associates” or “partners”. Click on that and you will find

out what they require to become an affiliate.

Some companies/ marketers have “open” affiliate programs –which means they

will take just about anyone who signs up; others have what are called “closed”

affiliate programs and are more restrictive in who they allow to promote their

products.

Whatever you do,

be sure to read the “terms of service”

, because affiliate

Azoogle

– One of the larger CPA Companies

ModernClick

– With a step-by-step training program

MaxBounty

– have a diverse array of offers

NeverBlueAds

– A newer company, popular because of its interface

CommissionJunction

– Also known as “CJ.com” (They’re celebrating their

10

th

year)

Choosing Your Offer

Of course, you'll want to pick an offer that fits your niche.

For your first go-around, pick something that is an established product and

makes decent money.

For instance, if we decided that weight-loss was our niche, we might pick the “Fat

Loss For Idiots” product from Clickbank.

When we go to the marketplace for promoting products (as discussed earlier) –

we see this information:

Fat Loss 4 Idiots.

Affiliate Page Here: FatLoss4Idiots.com/aff ::: Thanks.

view pitch page

|

create hoplink

The pitch page will show you the sales page, the “create hoplink” link will easily

allow you to create a url to use so that you will get credit for the sale when people

buy through that link.

*NOTE: You would definitely need a Clickbank account (or

What you want to look for in Clickbank offers, along with the “$/sale”, is the “grav”

number. “Grav” stands for “gravity”, and indicates Clickbank's assessment of the

popularity of the item (in a formula only known to them) – reportedly based upon

a combination of number of sales as well as the number of affiliates promoting it.

If there are lots of people promoting it, you can be sure that it a good percentage

of visitors become buyers. (Good can range anywhere from 1 out of 100 visitors

– or 1% -- on up.)

With AzoogleAds – and other CPA networks, the older the “open date” is, the

better. That indicates that the advertiser has been successful with this offer.

Setting Up Our Machine

To promote affiliate offers, you can set up a simple machine by using a simple 2

page website with an autoresponder.

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 9 of 20

Speed Profit Code

I’m about to lay out what you need to make this happen. DON’T freak out! I know

it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re first starting online, but after you build

a site or two, you should be able to breeze through these steps with no problems!

Here’s what you'll need:

1. A hosting account

2. A domain name

3. A text-editor or webpage editor

4. 2 very simple web pages

a. A “Squeeze” or “Opt-in” page

b. A “download page”

5. An autoresponder account

6. FTP software

7. The link to your affiliate offer

Now let’s go on and talk about the points…

A Hosting Account

A hosting account is where you will store your web pages. There are

literally hundreds of webhosting companies – from expensive, top-of-theline

to down-in-the dirt grungy. You don't generally want down-in-the dirt

grungy, but you don't need to pay for top-of-the-line, either.

A webhosting company that’s popular with many Internet Marketers and

has great prices and support is

HostGator

A Domain Name

A Domain name provides your web pages with an address on the Internet.

It's what people type in to the address bar of their browser, and what is

commonly known as a “URL” (Uniform Resource Locator) or “URI”

(Uniform Resource Indicator).

Pick a domain name that will be relevant to your niche. If we choose “Fat

Loss For Idiots” we might want to choose something like:

“SecretsOfFatLossForIdiots.com”.

You can buy your domains for a great price at

NameCheap

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 10 of 20

Speed Profit Code

A Text Editor or Webpage (aka “HTML”) Editor

I highly recommend you download what's called a “WYSIWYG” html editor

(for “What You See Is What You Get”) which allows you to create web

pages simply and easily – by adding formatting and font styles and the

like. These editors allow you to build a web page visually, so you know

exactly “What You Get”

There are a number of WYSIWYG editors, some of which are high end,

like one program called Dreamweaver. But you can get along quite well

with the free and quite excellent webpage editor

KompoZer or NVU

.

Telling you how to edit web pages is a whole other animal, and it’s just too

much to put into this report. There are a number of great –

and FREE

resources that will show you how to do so easily.

You can run a search online and you’ll be able to find a lot of good

tutorials out there

2 Simple Webpages

The next step in this process is to create 2 simple web pages. The first is

called a “Squeeze Page” or “Opt-In Page”

Squeeze Page (Name it index.html)

A squeeze page is simply an offer to exchange valuable information in

trade for the user's email address.

Basically, you will take the “opt-in” form that you get from your

autoresponder company (which we’ll be talking about in the next section)

and create a page with a tantalizing offer – usually a report or a series of

emails (aka eCourse).

You want to offer something that will entice the people in the niche you are

targeting to sign up.

For instance, for “Fat Loss For Idiots” you might want to offer a

short

report like “How To Lose Fat Quickly!” or, the “Top 10 Tips For Fat Loss.”

You may have to do a bit of research, but not too much, to find ideas for

the content for your report – but don't steal other people's content!

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 11 of 20

Speed Profit Code

Incidentally (

and here's the real power

) – once you have your visitors on

Download Page (Name it something complicating/hard to guess)

The second page you’ll need is called your “Download Page.” On your

download page, you will have a link to your report (more on that in a

second), as well as a link to the affiliate or CPA offer that you are

promoting.

What I would suggest is that you name it something like

download18972.html – just a bunch of random numbers. The reason for

doing this is so that nobody can try to guess your download page easily.

You can even use something like download_1234_22rcur.html or

something equally crazy using letters, numbers, and _s only.

Now, remember the second hoplink we gave above? You will want to use

that hoplink on your page if you are promoting that particular product.

Hoplinks

” are actually a Clickbank term, so other affiliate networks will

probably call their

affiliate links

something more off the wall – like, well,

“affiliate links”.

Now, you will probably want to say something more than just “click here” --

because

you want to entice your visitor to click on the link

for this

An Autoresponder Account

An autoresponder company is an email provider where people can sign up

to email lists that you create. Once you have an account with one of these

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 12 of 20

Speed Profit Code

companies, you can then send out email to your members automatically

on a periodic, scheduled basis. So you set it up once, and then keep

profiting from it over and over

Here are a couple of popular Autoresponder providers:

1.

GetResponse

2.

Aweber

Basically, you can set up your account so when someone signs up for

your email list, they get email #1 after signing up, email #2 a day or two

later (whenever you'd like to schedule it), email #3.

It doesn't matter when they sign up – the autoresponder company keeps

track of what email to send each person, and when to send it – so you

don't have to!

One of the other things that autoresponder accounts also do is ensure

email deliverability

. If you send out email from your own domain, your

Here’s an important tip:

When you set up your autoresponder form, you will be asked

When the site gives you the HTML form to put on your page, paste it into

your Squeeze Page so you can start getting email signups!

Then, in the

first

“follow up” email (ie – the email that is sent after the user

signs up for your email list)

give them the link to your download page

,

Important

: Always provide something of value in your emails. It can be a useful tip;

FTP Software

FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol”. And that's what this software

does.

It transfers files from your computer to your webhosting

account

. All it does is move files from one computer (yours) to the other

(that of the webhosting company)

The programs mentioned below make the process very similar to simply

copying a file from one place on your computer to another. There are a

number of free options for ftp software.

You’ll use one of these programs to transfer your squeeze page and

download page to your server:

1.

KompoZer

-- That's right, the html editor mentioned

above has ftp software.

2.

FireFTP

- This is an extension that is used with the

Firefox Browser. If you have more questions about ftp, what

it's used for, how to use it – you can find answers at the very

excellent help page for FireFTP, which you can find

here

.

3.

Filezilla

– A free FTP that works well.

A Simple Report

As mentioned above, when you create your webpages, you want to have

a report to offer to people to inspire them to sign up to your email list.

You can make simple but elegant-looking reports using products like

Microsoft Word, the free

OpenOffice suite, or with online tools like

Google

Documents

.

After you create your document, you will want to make sure it's readable

on all computers. The way to do that is to create a “pdf” document out of it.

You can use the pdf creation capability of OpenOffice, which will let you

convert Word (.doc) or OpenOffice (.odt) documents into pdf files from

directly within OpenOffice (using File->Export as PDF)

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 14 of 20

Speed Profit Code

Or, if you don’t want to use OpenOffice, you can convert Word documents

to PDF files for free

.

Generating Traffic!

Now that we have your offer, your site and everything else ready, it’s time to get

started. You need to get your prospects to your web page, otherwise known as

“traffic.” When they are prospects who are interested in your niche, we call that

“targeted traffic” -- and that's the kind we want.

These processes would have to be repeated over and over to keep boosting your

income.

So how do we get the “targeted traffic” ?

Well, there are a number of ways of getting traffic – you can pay for traffic, by

paying for advertising – such as through Google AdWords and other Pay-Per-

Click programs; you can “borrow” it – by doing Joint Ventures (more suitable for

when you have your own product); and you can get free traffic.

We're just going to talk about a few ways to get free traffic. (Free is good, right?)

Specifically, we’re going to talk about how to get traffic via

writing articles

and

via

“web 2.0” sites

(which also leverages article writing)

Article Writing

First, you have to write some articles. Articles with titles similar to those we

suggested for your report also make good article titles (but don't use the same

one for both your article and your report.

People like to read articles that start with “How to” and “10 Ways” and “Top 5.”

They also like to read articles with catchy headlines. So obviously,

headlines are

important

.

So important, in fact, that I sometimes put off deciding on one until after I’ve

written my article, so I can have the entire time I’m writing to decide what the best

title will be

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 16 of 20

Speed Profit Code

Your

article body

(the real bulk of the article) should be between 400 and 800

words. Most people can bang out an article in an hour or so, assuming they don’t

need to do research for it.

I’ve been known to write articles in under 30 minutes if I’m really passionate

about a subject, so it’s definitely doable.

Finally, after you’ve written the article and chosen a title, it’s time to write the

resource box

” – this is where you get to actually promote your site. You can’t

Ok, I have a few articles written. Now what?

Once you have written your articles, you want to submit them to the top 5 or 10

article directories.

Here's a list of the top 10 article directories (In no particular order, except #1

through #3 – they’re the best)

2.

ArticlesBase.com

Web 2.0 Sites

Web 2.0 sites are all over the place, but we’re going to focus on 3 specifically.

These social sites that are great places to put content about your niche and

entice readers to your email list and to your offers.

Here are just a few:

1.

Squidoo.com

2.

Hubpages.com

3.

Google Knols

By getting your content...and more importantly, your links, on these sites, your

squeeze page stands to get more traffic. People read your articles and other

content that you put up, find you, find your opt-in page, sign up to your list and

buy the products you point to.

While it may look a bit complicated to start with, this is a very simple process,

and once you get going, it can also be a very fast process, too!

What's more, once you've got your content up – the hard work is done – and your

pages do all the hard work – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Quick Tip:

Write some more articles and link to these Web 2.0 sites in the

resource boxes, you’ll be amazed at how well it works!

And then it’s time to do it all again! Sweet.

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 18 of 20

Speed Profit Code

So here’s a summary of what you have to do to get traffic (of course, this isn’t the

only way, there’re much more ways to doing them but I gave you the 2 basic

ones)…

Step 1:

Find the product you want to promote

Step 2:

Build your website

Step 3:

Write articles and create content on web 2.0 sites

Step 4:

Repeat Step 3 until you're tired of promoting

Step 5:

Repeat Steps 1-4 until you've made so much money you don't care any

more

A Quick Note

This might take

some

time to ramp up your traffic. But keep writing articles and

get your content out there on high-ranking websites, and soon you'll have traffic

coming from places you don't even expect.

One of the advantages of putting your content on article directories like

Ezinearticles.com is that other people can take your content and put it on their

site – as long as they keep your resource “box”. That means...more links to your

website, and that means more traffic!

This isn’t a fast way to Internet millions, but it is something you can do to make

In Closing

How much traffic you get will always vary and it is not on just how many articles

you write, but where you post and how widely your articles get distributed – so it

pays to write those articles well.

This is a great way to make some cash without really having to do a lot, after

your machine is set up.

However, this action plan alone probably isn’t going to make you a millionaire. In

fact, this is just your stepping stone, your first step towards your success.

But that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work!

Start doing things slowly and then build up the momentum.

Start implementing whatever you’ve learned right now.

As you start to pick up more skills and techniques along the way, you’ll soon start

seeing that income coming in.

It’s all about learning along the way and finding out what’s the best for your

business.

Wishing you great internet success!

see the article as advertising and leave before they were interested in learning

more!)

But, in the resource box, you should bridge the gap between your article and

your free report. Try something like this “Think these 10 tips were good? Visit

http://yourdomain.com for 10 more tips that are EVEN better!” (Where

http://yourdomain.com is your actual domain, not yourdomain.com…)

Here we go!

To summarize what we’ve done so far before we proceed, here’s what we’ve

talked about so far:

1. Find a hot niche

2. Find a hot selling product

3. Create your 2 web pages

4. Create an opt-in list in your autoresponder account

5. Create your report

6. Upload the pages to your webhosting account

And now we’re all ready to move on to the next part!

programs often have restrictions (usually quite reasonable) on how you promote

their programs – and violating those restrictions can get you thrown out of their

affiliate program.

For instance, most programs will throw you out if they feel that you are sending

out “Unsolicited Commercial Email” (UCE) – or what is commonly known as

SPAM.

For promoting CPA Offers, there are tons of companies. Most CPA companies

are not completely open, and have an application process. But if you seem

serious and can convince them you will bring them traffic, you should be

accepted.

But wait! There's actually another way that we can make money that is similar

enough to affiliate marketing that we'll include it here. And that is the world of

CPA, or “cost per action” offers.

What does this mean?

It means that you can actually get paid for bringing prospects to interested

parties. They don't have to buy anything. But those parties know how much they

will make off of every person they convert into a buyer – and they know how

many prospects they can convert into buyers. They then know how much they

can pay you to go find prospects to bring to them.

One of the most common of these offers you've probably seen: Video Professor.

Those offers you see for ringtones are often CPA offers.

Some of these offers will pay you if the person signs up for their offer or

sometimes, down to paying you for people who simply enter their zip code.

Introduction

Many – and I mean many – Internet marketers have gotten their start through

affiliate marketing. Consider this – you can start making money without creating

a product, without dealing with support nightmares and even without a website.

And you can get started immediately.

You get paid by bringing buyers to sellers. When they buy, you get a “piece of

the action” -- called a commission. So, if a prospect buys a $50 product, and the

product pays 50% commission – you will make $25.

In other words, you are like a commission-only salesperson. Except that you

don't have to do all the selling – or, often, much selling at all. You don't have to

do take any “orders”. You don't have to meet prospects “face-to-face.” All you

have to do, often, is

it all happens online.

Considering that you can advertise on the Internet often for free or very

inexpensively, it may be the perfect place to start, or expand, your efforts in

creating an online income and an Internet business.

With no floors to sweep, no insurance to pay and advertising that can work for

you 24 hours a day – it can easily become a fairly passive income. One you can

start up while still showing up at the day job – or, when sufficient, taking “the rest

of the day off” -- nearly every day. 

Getting Ready!

Where Do We Find Buyers?

Finding products to sell is a small fraction of the Affiliate Marketing Plan. The

“meat” of affiliate marketing is to finding buyers. Trust me, if there are buyers,

there will be products to sell.

In general, there are two really great types of buyers – people who will buy no

matter how the economy is doing.

1. The first group is called “

they

they’re facing a financial crisis (like an impending foreclosure). They are

looking for a solution as quickly as possible – and these folks have a credit

card hot in their hands searching earnestly for a solution.

2. The second group is “

desperate buyers” -- they have a problem andneed a solution – now. For instance, people who are in pain. Or,passionate (or rabid) buyers.” You know these

Groups of folks with a common interest we call “

Now, not all niches have buyers. We call niches with buyers “niche markets.”

But we don't want just a niche market – we want a niche market full of red-hot

buyers.

So where do we find these rabid buyers?

. It can be an interest. Maybe golf. Maybeniches.”

Around You!

The easiest way of them all is to look around you.

What are those things that your friends and relatives simply can't live without?

What's Oprah talking about? Start by looking around you and notice what people

are looking for. Look around for opportunities to jump into.

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 5 of 20

Marketplaces

Another way to find hot buyers is to look at what are hot sellers. This actually

can kill two birds with one stone – not only can you find hot markets, you can find

the products that are popular with buyers.

For instance...

Nearly all marketplaces – eBay, Amazon, Clickbank – and the like will also have

a list of hot products.

Here are some good links to use:

eBay Pulse http://pulse.ebay.com/

Amazon: http://amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books/

Tip: A useful rule-of-thumb is if a particular book is ranked 20,000 or higher, it is a

good product.

Check if there's a magazine on the topic:

http://www.amazon.com/magazine-newspaper-subscriptions/

Amazon Bestsellers in a variety of products:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/

The Electronic Marketplace, Clickbank:

http://www.clickbank.com/marketplace.htm

Let's say I'm looking for a product with hot buyers. If we look under the “Health &

Fitness Category” we see products which are listed in Clickbank's definition of

“most popular” and then you will be able to see a list of products.

Where Do We Find Products?

Well, while eBay and Amazon both have affiliate programs,

very popular with Internet Marketers. One of the appeals of Clickbank products

is that they are

Buyers can get immediate satisfaction from their purchase because they can

immediately download and start using their product.

But wait! There's actually another way that we can make money that is similar

enough to affiliate marketing that we'll include it here. And that is the world of

CPA, or “cost per action” offers.

What does this mean?

It means that you can actually get paid for bringing prospects to interested

parties. They don't have to buy anything. But those parties know how much they

will make off of every person they convert into a buyer – and they know how

many prospects they can convert into buyers. They then know how much they

can pay you to go find prospects to bring to them.

One of the most common of these offers you've probably seen: Video Professor.

Those offers you see for ringtones are often CPA offers.

Some of these offers will pay you if the person signs up for their offer or

sometimes, down to paying you for people who simply enter their zip code.

Clickbank is very,digital products – meaning they are great for impulse buys.

How To Become An Affiliate

You can easily sign up for Clickbank as an affiliate, here:

https://www.clickbank.com/affiliateAccountSignup.htm?key=

Once you are an affiliate with Clickbank you can promote any of the offers in their

marketplace.

Just go to their marketplace and look around. You can click on the “pitch page”

to see the product’s sales page, and you can see how much you will make when

you sell the product.

Clickbank is not the only place where you can find products to promote as an

affiliate. I previously mentioned eBay and Amazon as companies that have

affiliate offers.

There are also other affiliate networks like Clickbank, such as

Some individual and smaller companies have affiliate programs, but you

may want to be careful in selecting some of them because they may not have

reliable payouts.

You can discover affiliate programs for companies or other Internet Marketers by

looking down at the bottom of their product page and they will often have a link

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 7 of 20

that says “affiliates” or “associates” or “partners”. Click on that and you will find

out what they require to become an affiliate.

Some companies/ marketers have “open” affiliate programs –which means they

will take just about anyone who signs up; others have what are called “closed”

affiliate programs and are more restrictive in who they allow to promote their

products.

Whatever you do,

programs often have restrictions (usually quite reasonable) on how you promote

their programs – and violating those restrictions can get you thrown out of their

affiliate program.

For instance, most programs will throw you out if they feel that you are sending

out “Unsolicited Commercial Email” (UCE) – or what is commonly known as

SPAM.

For promoting CPA Offers, there are tons of companies. Most CPA companies

are not completely open, and have an application process. But if you seem

serious and can convince them you will bring them traffic, you should be

When you go to a CPA network site, you want to look for “publisher application.”

For instance, here are some companies you can apply to:

Choosing Your Offer

Of course, you'll want to pick an offer that fits your niche.

For your first go-around, pick something that is an established product and

makes decent money.

For instance, if we decided that weight-loss was our niche, we might pick the “Fat

Loss For Idiots” product from Clickbank.

When we go to the marketplace for promoting products (as discussed earlier) –

we see this information:

What you want to look for in Clickbank offers, along with the “$/sale”, is the “grav”

number. “Grav” stands for “gravity”, and indicates Clickbank's assessment of the

popularity of the item (in a formula only known to them) – reportedly based upon

a combination of number of sales as well as the number of affiliates promoting it.

If there are lots of people promoting it, you can be sure that it a good percentage

of visitors become buyers. (Good can range anywhere from 1 out of 100 visitors

– or 1% -- on up.)

With AzoogleAds – and other CPA networks, the older the “open date” is, the

better. That indicates that the advertiser has been successful with this offer.

Setting Up Our Machine

To promote affiliate offers, you can set up a simple machine by using a simple 2

page website with an autoresponder.

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 9 of 20

I’m about to lay out what you need to make this happen. DON’T freak out! I know

it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re first starting online, but after you build

a site or two, you should be able to breeze through these steps with no problems!

Here’s what you'll need:

1. A hosting account

2. A domain name

3. A text-editor or webpage editor

4. 2 very simple web pages

a. A “Squeeze” or “Opt-in” page

b. A “download page”

5. An autoresponder account

6. FTP software

7. The link to your affiliate offer

Now let’s go on and talk about the points…

A Hosting Account

A hosting account is where you will store your web pages. There are

literally hundreds of webhosting companies – from expensive, top-of-theline

to down-in-the dirt grungy. You don't generally want down-in-the dirt

grungy, but you don't need to pay for top-of-the-line, either.

A webhosting company that’s popular with many Internet Marketers and

has great prices and support is

HostGator

A Domain Name

A Domain name provides your web pages with an address on the Internet.

It's what people type in to the address bar of their browser, and what is

commonly known as a “URL” (Uniform Resource Locator) or “URI”

(Uniform Resource Indicator).

Pick a domain name that will be relevant to your niche. If we choose “Fat

Loss For Idiots” we might want to choose something like:

“SecretsOfFatLossForIdiots.com”.

You can buy your domains for a great price at

NameCheap

c Winson Lim, 2010 Page 10 of 20

A Text Editor or Webpage (aka “HTML”) Editor

I highly recommend you download what's called a “WYSIWYG” html editor

(for “What You See Is What You Get”) which allows you to create web

pages simply and easily – by adding formatting and font styles and the

like. These editors allow you to build a web page visually, so you know

exactly “What You Get”

There are a number of WYSIWYG editors, some of which are high end,

like one program called Dreamweaver. But you can get along quite well

with the free and quite excellent webpage editor

Telling you how to edit web pages is a whole other animal, and it’s just too

much to put into this report. There are a number of great –

resources that will show you how to do so easily.

You can run a search online and you’ll be able to find a lot of good

tutorials out there

KompoZer or NVU.and FREE –

2 Simple Webpages

The next step in this process is to create 2 simple web pages. The first is

called a “Squeeze Page” or “Opt-In Page”

Squeeze Page (Name it index.html)

A squeeze page is simply an offer to exchange valuable information in

trade for the user's email address.

Basically, you will take the “opt-in” form that you get from your

autoresponder company (which we’ll be talking about in the next section)

and create a page with a tantalizing offer – usually a report or a series of

emails (aka eCourse).

You want to offer something that will entice the people in the niche you are

targeting to sign up.

For instance, for “Fat Loss For Idiots” you might want to offer a

short

report like “How To Lose Fat Quickly!” or, the “Top 10 Tips For Fat Loss.”

You may have to do a bit of research, but not too much, to find ideas for

the content for your report – but don't steal other people's content!

Download Page (Name it something complicating/hard to guess)

The second page you’ll need is called your “Download Page.” On your

download page, you will have a link to your report (more on that in a

second), as well as a link to the affiliate or CPA offer that you are

promoting.

What I would suggest is that you name it something like

download18972.html – just a bunch of random numbers. The reason for

doing this is so that nobody can try to guess your download page easily.

You can even use something like download_1234_22rcur.html or

something equally crazy using letters, numbers, and _s only.

Now, remember the second hoplink we gave above? You will want to use

that hoplink on your page if you are promoting that particular product.

So, you might say something like “This is a product that I found really has

helped many people in their battle against the bulge”. If you've actually

used the product with success, brag on that.

Also, you can look on the product page for their “affiliates” link, and they
