Update Oct 14: The PPC Classroom people are in the process of launching their coaching program so the links for the free report have changed and now instead go to the sales page. I’ll chase them up about finding alternative access to the report – but it may be gone. Apologies if you missed out!
Go straight to the free report and videos that explain the details here -
Here’s the background story…
I remember this feeling quite clearly. It was about 3 years ago. I was living in a share house in Brisbane and my Internet business ventures were doing okay, but far from brilliant.
My proofreading business was paying the bills and ensured I didn’t need a job. My blog was growing and starting to make some money, but let’s say I felt far from comfortable with my financial circumstances. I’m sure many of you can concur with those feelings right now.
As a result of my situation I was easily swayed by different methods to make money online, but there was one thing in particular that I was really interested in because it seemed like a very FAST method to generate a return and potentially earn big dollars online in a period of months.
The method I’m talking about is using Pay Per Click advertising, like Google AdWords, and selling affiliate programs.
You buy traffic, send it to affiliate offers and tweak your campaigns to the point where you make more money in affiliate commissions than you spend on the per click traffic.
Once you get the numbers right you can really open the traffic floodgates and spend thousands a day on PPC traffic, knowing for each $1 spent you will make more than a $1 back. At least, that’s the theory and how the professionals do it.
There’s literally thousands of people who still use this technique to make anything from a few hundred dollars a month to a few million. In fact I know a friend in Sydney who last time I spoke to him, was spending about $5000 a day on AdWords, to make $8000 a day in commissions for a total profit of $3000 A DAY – amazing stuff!
I Got Distracted
What’s even more compelling about this technique is it appears easy to learn. I knew the fundamentals of PPC with AdWords, so I figured I just needed to follow someone’s system, learn the ropes and I could be making some good money with this system too.
I got so distracted by this opportunity that my friend Will Swayne and I made a commitment, despite both of us running businesses already, to meet every Thursday and build ourselves a little Pay Per Click income stream.
Will and I met twice, started doing some research and then stopped. Our current ventures were demanding our time, so we had to force ourselves to just let this opportunity go and focus on what was already working, even if we were both not really happy with the current state of our active ventures.
Of course there’s a lesson there – focus on what is working and don’t get distracted – but that’s not why I’m telling you this story.
Free Report – The Million Dollar PPC and Affiliate Marketing Story
You see this method of using Pay Per Click with affiliate marketing is still being used today and while it’s no get rich quick scheme, I still see this system as one of the quickest ways to make money online.
The guys at Pay Per Click Classroom are in launch mode for their next training program, and have released some very interesting prerelease content, including a free report and some videos that tell the story of guy who uses this system to make millions.
You can get the report and videos here -
The problem with this promotion is they almost make it sound too easy, so let me point out a couple of warnings first before you get too excited about this -
- Like my story above, if you are already heavily invested and enjoying some results from a current venture, don’t drop everything just for this new temptation that promises riches.
- Yes you can make money very quickly with PPC, but you need to spend some money first. This is a traffic method that is not free – it costs you something, not necessarily a lot, but at least a few hundred dollars, to get started.
- While you can turn a profit quickly, making millions is not an outcome that most will achieve, although I certainly think a full time living is very realistic if you learn the techniques of successful PPC.
- You need to like numbers and keyword research – this is another thing that I wasn’t too keen on, but if you are prepared to do this, that’s really the only skill required – this is definitely a simple way to get started making a living online.
So with those warnings out of the way, let me make one point very clear – knowing how to use Pay Per Click is possibly one of the most valuable skills you can learn today.
I pay for Pay Per Click to drive some traffic to my opt-in page, and while it’s not the game breaker for me, it helps (I don’t manage my campaigns though – I pay others to do it – as I said, I don’t like numbers and keyword so much).
The system the guys at Pay Per Click Classroom teach is powerful and if you are looking for a new venture to sink your teeth into, this is definitely a compelling idea.
Grab the free report and watch the video to hear the case study of how one guy went from $1600 to over $2 Million. Here’s the link again –
Of course this is part of a launch. They are hoping some people will join their coaching program, which opens on October 14 and yes, my affiliate links are in this post, but there’s no cost to grab the free stuff. You can make up your own mind if you want to pursue the opportunity further.
