Episode-69- Another Look at Selling Links, SEO Link Effects and Making Money

Based on some of the questions and feedback on Episode 66 on the Road to 100K forum I really don’t think I did a good job fulling explaining things like…

  • Why people actually buy links
  • What makes links have value
  • How Text Link Ads Works
  • Why buyers care about traffic even though that isn’t what they are buying

Further I also think I need to do a better job with convying…

  • The concept of multiple income streams
  • How you figure out which website monetization programs fit your websites
  • Why some programs do not fit some sites
  • How you need to approach what constitutes “enough traffic to make money”
  • Why you need to SELL SOMETHING directly
  • Why third party programs do have a place for income as well

I also want to point something out.  Many times you listen to me and you really get the “ramblings of an insane entrepreneur”.  I sound pissed off, mad and angry.  If you happened to be one of the people that “didn’t get it” the first time around you might even think I am mad at you.  I AM NOT, not even a bit.  The truth though is I do get mad and it does come through here are some reasons why.

  • 90% of the time the reason folks don’t get it is all the previous bullshit that has been spread by “gurus” that don’ t know internet marketing form their rear ends.  These assclowns make my job so much harder.  Most of the time the objections you guys have upset me because I have been fighting them for 10 years now.  I am mad as the sources of this garbage not you.
  • Sometimes I am mad at myself.  My job it is to convey this stuff so you get it, understand it and can use it as it applies to you.  So when I am teaching something and it doesn’t work for you the first time I come back harder, more passionate and more explicit.  Remember this ain’t PBS or “Fresh Air”
  • I give a shit, I care so damn much that nothing will keep me from giving every listener ever chance of success I possibly can.  When you get fired up people know you mean it, it wakes them up.

The truth is I wish there was a way to hook a cable up to my brain, dump the data to a file and have you upload it to your own.  If I could I would.  Yet I can’t so for now you get it the way I know how, with passion, urgency and at times anger.  Remember though the anger is never at the person asking the question, it is the market place of “how to make money online” that is largely a complete cesspool that is the true recipient of my wrath.  You my listeners are the recipient of my knowledge, just wanted you to know that.

    I appreciate your passion Jack. It comes through on this podcast just as it comes through on TSP and I love it.

    Hey Jack,

    I tried to sign up with the forum 3 days ago and haven’t got an email to accept me. My IP might show that I’m in Central Europe, but don’t worry, I’m not a spammer.
    Really enjoy this show and TSP…in fact where I am, we have more need than most for your words of wisdom.

    Cheers

      Sometimes they approve you and don’t seem to email or sometimes it gets blocked or something. Go log in and check your sites status.

      @jube sorry man I am an idiot! I thought you were talking about approval from an affiliate program. Odds are we nuked you on the ip thing. Set up a new account then email me directly at jack @ thesurvivalpodcast.com and tell me the username you picked and I will make sure you get approved.

    One other interesting difference with selling links on this site and your model in TSP is…if you have AdBlock installed and enabled on your browser as I do, only the personalization mall is visible in the browser. No other ads at all. Once it is disabled all the rest of the adlinks come up. However, with TSP, there isn’t any noticeable difference between having Adblock enabled or not, probably because the banners on the right are personal direct links instead of ‘clicklinkenergy’ or something like that.

      Well that tells me I need to set the banner up so I self host them but it has 100% nothing to do with link buying or selling.

      Let me try this one more time, LINKS ARE LINKS THEY ARE NOT BANNERS. But thanks for the intel on adblock.
