I’ve been having a lot of success with ecom pretty much since I started, keep in mind I had a lot going for me with my previous experience in sales and marketing.
Especially when it comes to running paid traffic.
In the past I also had a great deal of success with promoting affiliate products… things like software and tools and mainly things for the “make money online” niche.
Recently I decided that I need to diversify my income streams and move into other areas, namely outside of ecom since that’s where 90% of my energy has been the last 2 years. Don’t get me wrong, ecom has been very good to me, but times are changing.
Mainly I dislike:
And I’m honestly not a very social person. If given the opportunity I’d disappear into my very “tech’d out” office (which my wife refers to as my man-cave) and very rarely see the light of day. Not interacting with other people would be amazing for me, for those who don’t know, I’m an extreme introvert with anti-social tendencies that are overwhelming at times.
The idea of my daily schedule consisting of anime/movie binges, gaming marathons, and napping while never really needing to leave my fortress of solitude would be pure heaven for me.
This presents a few problems outside of the obvious, such as:
In other words, I need a way to comfortably make money inside of this “bubble” lifestyle.
So… what to do?
Let’s start by listing out my own personal experience, and tools & resources that I have at-hand right now:
I’m going to set $1,000 aside for this little pet project and go from there.
So what’s the game plan here? Well if you haven’t guessed by now… affiliate marketing.
BUT NOT the make money online stuff, I’m going into greener pastures.
Well, at least according to a few of my various mentors over the years…
Okay so there are a few phases to this beast… let’s start at the top:
Okay, so there is the 30,000 foot view of the plan.
My schedule is quite accelerated so I plan on doing steps 1-8 over a period of 7 days.
And steps 9 & 10 will take place as soon as possible following the launch.
I fully intend on monetizing the email list with affiliate offers and also monetizing the Facebook community I’ll be building around this system with affiliate offers as well.
Steps 1-5 are designed to make me money, anywhere from a 1x to 4x ROI on the front end depending on how well I implement all of the systems and my various tricks (wizard level marketing).
This will all be followed up by monetizing:
These steps here are for long term wealth and growth.
When done right, I should be able to schedule posts, setup email sequences, and rotate my offers once per week…. The dream is being built.
I’m looking at various tools to make life easy for these long term steps… nothing concrete yet but here are my thoughts:
I will be breaking out this plan into a series of blog posts, hopefully 1 per day over the next week or so explaining what I’m doing and have done for each of these steps.
My goals are to do as little work as possible while bringing in a very tidy profit – I’m shooting for $500 per day in profit consistently day after day within 30 days. And of course growing!
AND if I do this right with my blog posts, you guys should be able to easily follow along and copy me step-by-step.
This is going to be awesome, if you’re excited for this leave me a comment below and let me know!
