This is a guest post by Patrick Meninga of Make Money With No Work. He recently sold his website for $200,000 dollars.
When I was stuck in a full time day job with seemingly no end in sight, I desperately wanted to create a full time income online so that I could purchase my freedom.
I wanted nothing more than to check my daily online income and see $100 dollars or more, each and every day.
I wanted the ability to work on my online businesses at my leisure, without being forced to work every day in a job I did not enjoy.
I finally learned how other Internet marketers were achieving significant growth online, and I vowed to follow their example and create my own success.
In order to do that, I had to watch what they were doing rather than what they were saying. Subtle difference there, but it represented a huge turning point in my own thinking.
Massive action rules the day
So what did I learn by watching others who were succeeding online?
They were all taking massive action.
For example, one of my marketing mentors was creating massive income growth at the time, and he did it by adding one hundred articles to a website that was already earning money. Another Internet marketer was experiencing huge gains by putting up lots of new content and building links to all of it.
I started to realize that it was all just a big numbers game. Of course creating valuable content was important but the people who were bragging about big income were the ones who were working like mad.
And so I decided to do a little experiment with my own website, which was just sputtering along at around $300/month in income at the time.
I added 40 new articles and threw fresh links at all of them over the course of about three weeks time.
A month or two later my income had doubled to $600/month.
And that was all it took for me. I was convinced in the power of massive action.
I could stop reading about how to make money online, and actually go DO IT instead.
The key to high volume publishing
If your website shows profit potential and you see a trickle of income, do not hesitate or second guess yourself.
You know what you need: a bigger website.
If you are earning around one dollar per day and your website has thirty articles, why not publish a thousand articles and make a thousand dollars per month?
Achieving such publishing goals does not mean that you have to crank out 20 articles per day. Instead, the key is in setting a daily quota and then sticking to it without fail.
Imagine that you publish three articles each and every day–that is over a thousand in less than a year!
Some of the most successful Internet marketers I know even meet their quota before they check their email. They do not allow themselves to do anything online until their three articles have been published each day.
This is a disciplined approach that is not for the faint of heart. Cranking out three quality articles each day is not easy. Do it for over a year and you will almost surely reach your income goal.
If you want massive results, you have to take massive action.
Commit to putting in the work if you truly want to live the dream and purchase your freedom.
What to do if your massive plan fails
This plan is foolproof and will work for anyone provided they take the following three things into account as well:
1) Profit potential.
2) Time – or the age of your website.
3) Link juice – or your website authority.
Profit potential is a function of two things:
1) The volume of people searching for your topic online.
2) The cost of the products and services associated with your topic.
So if your website is about “free jokes” then you will not make any money. A quick way to check profitability is to perform a Google search and see how many ads are showing. Some topics show several pages of advertisements while other searches show little or no ads. Choosing a website topic with a heavy amount of advertising insures that your topic has profit potential.
The time factor is important because the search engines put new websites “on probation” in order to combat web spam. What used to take a few weeks or months to rank for may now take over a year. Allow time for your site to age and recognize that most new content will not reach it’s natural peak in the search results for six months to a year.
Link juice is important if you want to rank a massive amount of quality content and earn money from it. If you add lots of content to your website and see no results for several months, then your website lacks authority. Switch to link building at this point and focus on getting high quality links through guest posting. Once your new content starts to rank you may shift back over to on-site publishing in order to increase income.
Avoid distractions and stick to the plan
This is a fairly simple plan but you have to avoid distractions if you are going to produce high volumes of quality content.
If you are not earning approximately $1.00/per article/per month with your website then start focusing on getting strong links rather than new on-site content.
I personally averaged 3 new articles per day for a few short years and achieved a monthly income of over $2,000/month. Shortly after achieving this income level I was approached by a buyer who offered me $200,000 for my website.
None of those dollar figures would have been possible without the plan of massive action that I had implemented two years prior.
If you want awesome results then you need to make a strong commitment to take daily action. Publishing just three articles per day can easily result in full time income if you know what you are doing. Consistent effort is critical.
