Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Update

I know I’ve  been M.I.A. for a while, so I just wanted to bring you guys a Work From No Home update.  Unfortunately, I’ve been somewhat of a slacker since we last spoke.  I chilled over the holiday weekend, but then I began having some medical problems.  For me, this means lots of forthcoming medical bills for a while as I will start having to go to do the doctor on a weekly basis.  Even though this sucks, I’m taking it in stride and turning it into a positive.

Medical issues are just the kind of the that fuel my fire and kind of push to into a corner to the point where I feel that I have to succeed, so in a way, I’m kind of glad this has happened when it did.  These Work From No Home sites (or any other sites I build in the near future) are going to be “pay off medial bills sites.”  Now that I think about it, it would be fun to be able to put up a site whenever an emergency like this comes up, so I can create sites to pay off various bills and what not.

Since this is a Work From No Home post, I did realize that I made a funny mistake when it comes to my site.  I got a domain name that doesn’t necessarily correspond that well to the actual product because I was too lazy to read the sales page and hadn’t yet gone through the product (got a better one), so make sure you do both of those things.  🙂  I’ve also found that I actually like the product itself, and having access to the product has given me tons of ideas for articles, even though I’m not totally done going through the product.

I’m going to try to get through the entire course by the end of the night, so I will be able to bring you another update tomorrow.   I can already see that by the time I’m done with the course, I’ll be able to spit out a bunch of unique, quality content – one of the main reasons you should buy the product rather than going off the sales page.  I’m really glad I took the time to find the product that I did.  Don’t forget that you can join in on the Work From No Home fun anytime.

Yours in online success…

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Part 5

In part 5 of my Work From No Home review, we’re going to be talking about content creation.  This module is quite “meaty,” so it might take you some time to get through it.  Content creation is a process and isn’t really something that you can bang out in one day.  In the first section of this module, Peng talks about the “5 golden rules of content creation” — pay close attention to these things — as well as how it used to be and how it is today after the various Google updates.

Like I said before at the tail end of my last post, “content really is king” nowadays, so this is worth spending some time on.  One of the big things in this section is that Peng stresses the importantance of writing unique, quality content for your main site.  He says that he will still spin articles for articles that are linking to his main site, but I’m not even a fan of that.  I’m a firm believer in writing unique content on all of the sites that you publish.  This is because providing unique, quality content based on what a searcher is looking for is the end goal of a search engine.

In the next section of the module, Peng talks about the first page of content for your site.  He provides you with an overview as well as very specific critera in terms of the word counts and number of articles and such.  Since this is his method, I’m going to be following this to the letter (except for the spinning), so I can see how it turns out.  One thing I will tell you is that he suggest that the first review should be in-depth, so that you’re able to provide value.  This means that you should probably by the product — especially if it’s a digital-info one.  Peng actually shows you an example in the dating niche for this.

I should also mention that if you’re gonna be promoting a physical product, it tends to be easier to check out real reviews and see honest feedback — especially when you use popular online merchants.  When doing this, however, it’s still important that you don’t plagorize stuff.  You should read stuff just to get an general idea, close it up, and write stuff in your own words.  In day 4 of the action plan, Peng just tells you to carry out the tasks that I’ve described above.  I’m going to stop there for now because I know this is a lot to take in.  We’ll talk soon.

Don’t forget that you can buy Work From No Home anytime and start building your business.

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Part 4

I’m back with part 4 of my Work From No Home case study.  I’m happy to report that I finally found a product to promote but decided not to skip right to domain set up because I would be leaving too much stuff out.  This was quite an interesting process because I found out just how little I know about this niche.  I’ve been in the internet marketing niche so long, I took things for granted without even realizing it.  I guess I got a wake-up call…ha, ha, ha.

When you have no experience doing this stuff or are starting off in brand new niche, there’s some learning that has to be done.  For instance, I didn’t realize how many different sub-niches there are in this industry.  It’s definately a niche that provides endless opportunity and is one that I’ll be able to come back to over and over again.  Since I’m starting from the bottom (like most of you will be), John Chow (Peng’s partner) suggested that I use a site like cbengine.com  to find newly-released and trending Clickbank products without too much competition in my given niche.  It’s a really cool site.

When you’re first looking for a product to promote and trying to use certain metrics, it’s kind of a guessing game.  In other words, your first site provides you with a baseline.  I’ll use the internet marketing niche as an example.  In IM, I basically know when a product is going to be big if certain high-profile marketers are going to be promoting it and if certain other sites display certain data.  I don’t know enough about this niche to know that stuff, yet.  It’s going to take a while.  This is why I suggest going into a highly-profitable niche that you can go back to (will be able to recognize this when you use a site that Peng points you to).

Since my first site is just going to be a “test this and see what happens” kind of a thing, my main money goals are pretty much just to make my investment back, to learn Peng’s overall process, and to learn more about my niche.  Speaking of which, when I was looking for a product, I noticed that e-books in a certain catagory as well as certain authors seemed to be quite popular (like the ones that have released multiple products).  I took note of this using one of the sites that Peng recommends, so I’ll know if they release new stuff in the future (will really be ahead of the game then).

After finding a product to promote, Peng Joon actually gives you a good way to start generating domain name ideas since the product you’re promoting might not have launched yet and/or be able to be found in a keyword research tool.  Those things are usually a month or two behind and aren’t always accurate, anyway.  When you’re doing keyword domain name research, you’re very likely going to come across popular keyword phrases that continue to pop up.  You should take note of these because this is how you know what keywords to tag the post with on your site, so that people can find them (i.e. review, scam…etc).

In the final section of “picking your market,” Joon goes into more detail about a site that you’ve come across a couple of times by now and gives you an example using it.  In case you’re wondering where we are in the 30-day action plan, the keyword research and domain stuff is on day 2.  In the second section of Work From No Home called “basics” (day 3 of the action plan), you’re just going to be getting your domain and hosting stuff set up.  This will only take you a day or two.  If you don’t already a site on your own domain set up, you’ll have to wait a bit until the hosting company sends you your name servers.

Tomorrow, we will be getting to the good stuff (Part 3 of WFNO and day 4 of the action plan): content creation. 🙂  The reason I call this the “good stuff” is because as online entreprenturs, the value we provide, the traffic we get, and the money we make all start with content.  That’s why they say “content is king” online.  Don’t forget that you can  From purchase Work From No Home at any time and join in.

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Part 3

I’m finally back with Part 3 of my Work From No Home case study.  The last time that we spoke, I told you that I contacted customer support in order to get some questions answered before I could proceed.  Well, here’s what’s been doing on.  While I was able to get an almost an immediate response from the support staff (less than a day), my questions had to be forwarded to Peng’s team.  Getting a response from them was taking a bit too long for my taste.

I’m usually a very patient person, but during this case study is not one of those times, so I decided to take a different approach.  I decided to contact John Chow.  Some of you may have heard of him.  He is Peng Joon’s business partner and like the godfather of blogging, so I thought who better to ask me questions to, right?  Well, I e-mailed him and got very quick responses from him (within a few minutes).  With that said, at the time of writing this, I still haven’t figured out what product I’m going to promote.  While it’s kind of embarrassing, There are reasons I’m telling you this.

First of all, the whole purpose of this Work From No Home case study is for you to see what it’s actually like to go through the course.  If I have some trouble spots, someone else out there might, too.  After all, no course is perfect (even legit ones).  Also, I know this overall model works because I implemented it by accident when I was a newbie still using free site some years ago, and I know what’s possible.  That time, I just got lucky.  Now, I’m doing it on purpose.  If I do my research right, I hoping it will pay off in the end.  It’s all about perserverance, people (the difference between success and failure)!

Plus, there’s the bigger picture.  Once you gain the knowlege and skills do to something, that’s something that you can carry with you for a lifetime.  Even when the search engines were to make some algorithm changes (as they often do), you will still have a solid way for generating fast, residual income that no one can ever take away from you, so for me, that makes the trials totally worth it.  It’s times like this when I like to blast “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child (my go to song when I’m struggling) and keep pushing.

Finally, I have a tip for you (not my cup of tea), based on something I saw trending on Yahoo on 6/27.  For those of you who are into reading and books, there is going to be a 50 Shades of Grey movie coming out in 2014.  This makes me laugh because I had no idea what it was about until someone told me.  Then I saw my 61-year-old mother and my 82-year-old grandmother reading it…!  Right now, people are talking about who should play the male lead and so on.  This will no doubt cause a spike in books, which are already on Amazon.

Feel free to get Work From No Home yourself and implement stuff right along with me…back on Monday.

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Part 2

Hey, everybody.  Today I’m back with Part 2 of my Work From No Home case study.  When we last left off, I told you that I still hadn’t figured out what niche market I wanted to go into.  After a lot of thinking, I’ve decided that I want to go into the dating niche.  With that said, I haven’t yet made a decision on what product I want to promote.  Although I did find some stuff that was totally unrelated to my niche that was trending (Monster University in case anyone wants it).

By the time I was done with the last section, I also had some questions and e-mailed support on Sunday evening.  I got a respond back in less than a day (good to  know that works), but the staff member had to forward to e-mail to Peng and his team as I had some very specific questions.  Once I get a response back from that, I’ll have a better idea of what direction to go in.  My time hasn’t been a total waste as I did take note of some trends and got ideas for projects I’ll be making use of later in the year.  The next time we speak, I will have resolved my issues and would have set up my site.

After you get done finding a hot trend, “the basics” module is next.  This is where you learn to get domain, hosting, and set up your site.  This stuff isn’t hard (was able to do it on my first try the first time I set up a blog on my own domain) and won’t take you long as all.  I’m personally looking forword to getting over this hump, so that I can move on to content creation and stuff.  Content equals traffic, and traffic equals money.  Don’t forget that you can get Work From No Home yourself and join in on the fun anytime.

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Part 1

I’m back with part 1 of my Work From No Home case study.  When you first log in, you’re greeted by an introductory video.  The navigation is pretty simple and standard.  There are tabs across the top that allow you to access the various sections of the course as well as some written text, where Peng just talks about the course and provides you with a clickable list of the things you will be learning.  This list is also off to the right-hand side of the screen under the “pages” section.

One of the cool things about Work From No Home is that it comes with a 30-day action plan in addition to the various modules.  You could go through the watch the videos and read the entire course before you get started on the action plan, but I think I am going to do a module and then do all of the corresponding sections of the 30-day action plan.  I think I will progress much faster that way.  Each day within the plan has a title, so it’s pretty easy to figure out.

The first module is about picking which niche market you want to go into and such.  A niche market is a group of people who have some kind of problem and are willing to pay for a solution.  Peng gives you a couple examples within the introductory video to this section like gardening, fishing, gaming, working from home, etc.  He also mentions thinking about your hobbies and passions as a starting point and finding hot trends.  This section covers days 1 and 2 of the action plan, respectively.

In the introductory video for finding hot trends, Peng gives you an example of a product that’s coming out at the time of the video was recorded (in the gaming niche) as well as tells you how you can find out about what products are coming out in the internet marketing niche.  I use this site myself, but I won’t recommend you go into the IM niche until you’ve had some success with an internet marketing product on a site outside of the internet marketing niche (like Work From No Home).  It’s the only way for you to learn what’s real and what’s a scam.  He also talks about two sites you need to know about.

After the video is over and you continue with the text portion, Peng discusses why his overall method works — in spite of the changes that Google and the other search engines make to their algorithms.  He also talks about the value that the search engines place on  quality content nowadays in comparision to the days long gone.  Pay attention to this.  He talks more about his “Launch Leverage Formula” and gives another detailed example in the gaming niche and one with a physical product.  I really appreciate that he has stuff to show outside of the IM niche.

After the “finding a hot trend” section, I still haven’t thought of a niche or anything, so I move on to the “what type of things to promote” section, where Joon talks about deciding on if you want to promote digital or physical products as well as a bit about “mini sites” (the focus of Work From No Home & what I’m doing) or larger niche authority sites (like this blog).  I’ve decided to go for a digital product because, due to experience, I know that a lot of companies that make physical products don’t like their brand names in URL’s and pay out much lower commission percentages than digital.

With all of this, I still don’t know what niche or product I want to go into, so I move over to day 1 of the 30-day action plan for some direction.  Basically, it says that I need to do some research (shocker, I know). 🙂  I’m just gonna go back and use the resources that Peng suggest and see what I come up with.  If, during my research, I use a site that Joon doesn’t mention, I will let you know, so that everyone can benefit.  I’ll let you know what I come up with in part 2.  Don’t forget that you can get Work From No Home anytime and follow along with me.

Case Study: Work From No Home System Review: Introduction

Hello, everyone.  I must admit that it’s been kind of a lazy summer for me, so far — especially since I don’t have to babysit like I usually do.  I’ve mostly just been browsing the ‘net and things of the like.  While doing so, I came across a video in my recommendation in which someone was doing a case study of an internet marketing product.  After watching the video, I got inspired and thought it would be cool to choose a product and do the same thing.

The product I’ve chosen to do my case study on is Work From No Home by Peng Joon.  Work From No Home is basically about making money from emerging products and hot trends in about 30 days or so, which seems very d0-able.  I don’t know how this is going to turn out as I’ve never actually done a case study like this before on my blog, which I think will help to hold me accountable.  The only things I’ve decided so far are that my case study will be on a product outside of the IM niche.  While I probably won’t tell you the product, I will be telling you the niche I’m in.

I’ve also decided that I will be opening a new affiliate account (if the product happens to be on a network like Clickbank, where I already have an account in the IM niche).  I want to keep my case study (and any other sites I might build in the future) separate from my internet marketing blog stuff.  I’ve also decided that I want my Work From No Home case study to last for 30 days, which will begin on 6/21 and end on 7/21.  I’m also going to be doing things in parts rather than day-by-day since I have plenty of time on my hands to get stuff done.

Finally, I should also mention that I’ve only purchased the main course of Work From No Home — without the up-sells, so keep that in mind as I’m going through this process.  I hope you’re as excited as I am to get started!  Feel free to grab your own copy and follow along.  Feel free to post your comments, questions, and your progress as I (and hopefully you) embark on this journey.

The Sad State of the Internet Marketing Industry

Today, I want to talk about something that has been annoying me recently — the sad state of IM.  I’ll tell you what’s been frustrating me, why it has been doing so, and the provide you with some recommendations down below that will allow me to do my part in changing it.  For the first time in a long time, I don’t have to babysit my niece and nephew this summer (love them but Yay…LOL!)  This has given me more time to concentrate on doing more IM stuff.

Anyway. as I’ve been doing more reviews, I’ve been noticing something interesting but sad at the same time.  It’s that quality internet marketing products that actually provide you with real knowledge and enhance your overall skill set as marketers don’t seem to get their due while all the gurus back the crappy products that were designed to just suck you dry of your hard-earned money.  This causes a lot of confusion because lots of people write me and ask me about various products.

Nine of out 10 times, the product they ask me about is a scam, and when I not only tell them that it’s a scam but list all of the reasons this is true, they seem really disappointed and angry.  Well, today, I’m going to attempt to remedy that by providing you with a list of real business models and quality products that you can use to make real money.  As all of the models are legit and profitable, the one you choose just depends on what you’re into.  The one that will make you the most money is the one you like and stick with.  I also changed one of the recommendations for fun to showcase a different product.  Click the link below to get started.

The Beauty of Promoting Higher-Priced, Quality Products

When it comes to making money online, we all want to make as much money as we possibly can because the truth is that, while helping people is great (should also be a goal), this is a business.  From that standpoint, promoting higher-priced products makes total sense — especially when you consider that the promotional work that you have to do for a product — whether it’s higher or lower-priced — is the same.

With that said, there is something major that I’ve noticed in the past little while, given that I promote both lower and higher-priced products.  I’ve noticed that as long as you choose a quality product, the refund/chargeback rates for the more expensive products I promote have been non-existent — really!  One in particular, called Affilobleprint (review), is on Clickbank.  I recommend that you use it and promote it if you are struggling with blogging and hitting that $100/day mark — it pays that well!  Some others are on independent affiliate programs that pay via Paypal, which I have to wait to be paid on.

Anyway, the moral of the story is not to shy away from promoting higher-priced products.  Here’s a tip.  More expensive, quality products are totally worth it, but you can’t think to yourself “This is too expensive.  I would never buy it.”  You have to think of it in terms of how the product will improve the potential customer’s life.  From that perspective, a quality product that solves a major problem they are dealing with is priceless.  It’s like the more it cost, the harder they are willing to work to solve their problem with your recommendation.

Yours in online success,

Joey

 

 

How Much Money Will This Product Really Make Me?

Hello, guys and gals. Today, I want to respond to a question that I’ve been getting a lot lately, especially from newbie marketers.  It usually goes something like this, “How much money will [product x] really make me?  The answer to this is pretty simple.  I have no idea how much money you will make with a particular product.  The reason I don’t know is because there are a number of factors involved like your level of experience, how long it takes you to grasp the material and so on.  The only thing that I can do is introduce you to quality products that work and those that are taught by people who really know their stuff.

As for the rest of it, it’s pretty much up to you.  In this business, you kind of have to be the type of person that’s a self-starter, one that’s persistent and being naturally inquisitive also helps out a lot.  You have to be the kind of person that’s not afraid to ask questions when you get stuck (happens to everyone) and also be willing to seek out the answers.  These qualities are very important because even with legitimate products, you have to realize that no product is 100 percent perfect.  Success in this business is basically about finding a business model that suits you (several to choose from) and working it.

I, for instance, found that I really like blogging.  Interestingly enough, it’s not because I like to write all that much.  I like blogging because of the residual aspect of it — being able to put up content once and continue to profit from it.  I also like the idea of having a little community of my own and having the knowledge to help people out with their questions.  Some people like being service providers and doing stuff where they get paid via Paypal.  I’m personally too much of a procrastinator for that.  I also know this because I actually tried it.

With that said, I also have to mention that once you find what you like, it doesn’t really feel like work.  Over time, you also get pretty quick at it once you get yourself into a route, so don’t let the idea of having to put forth some effort scare you off.  Click the link below to find the model that best  fits you.
