But there’s also another way: study their web sitesand reverse engineer their success.
The great thing about the Internet is that everythingis visible – nothing is hidden. If it’s working forthem, you can find out exactly how they’re doing it bystudying their site.
=> Subscribe to their Newsletter and examine their Welcome Message.
=> Analyze their Newsletter and see exactly how they use it to generate income.
=> Sign up for their free autoresponder course and find out why it produces sales.
=> Check out which affiliate programs they promote.
=> Read their free eBooks and discover how they bring in new customers.
Here are some examples:
(1) Recently I signed up for the Newsletter ofsomeone who makes $130,000 a year just from affiliateprograms. I wanted to see how he was doing it. What Inoticed was that he doesn’t even try to sell theaffiliate products – he tells his readers how much hemakes from those programs. Naturally, they join(through his link). The result? He has an army ofsub-affiliates who do the selling for him.
(2) In another Ezine I recently saw a 40 word adthat interested me. I clicked on the link, and insteadof taking me to the home page of the product, it tookme straight to the order form. Very clever, and veryeffective.
(3) A few weeks ago I subscribed to a freeautoresponder course – 12 daily web marketing lessons.Many people never finish these free courses. Theyunsubscribe half way through.
But this marketer made sure that people finished hiscourse – he announced in the first lesson that the12th lesson contained the download link for a veryuseful free eBook that I wanted. Naturally, I stayedwith it till the last lesson.
(4) Last week I signed up for a marketing guru’s15-day free autoresponder course and I was amazed tosee how easily it had been put together. Each modulewas simply a freely-available article by a recognizedweb marketing expert, with a sprinkling of affiliatelinks.
To sum up, when you visit the website of a marketingexpert, pay close attention to everything you see. Askyourself “Why is s/he doing that?”. Everything isthere for a reason.
If you make this a habit you’ll quickly learn the artof making money on the Internet.
