Earning Passive Marketing Profits

passive marketing profits

Let’s Begin

Okay, let’s get started. And let’s get one thing straight. Making passive marketing profits does not happen overnight!

When we talk about earning a passive income we need to first of all understand WHY we want it.

Some reasons:

  • Supplement your weekly income.
  • Supplement your retirement income.
  • Out of work.
  • Broke.
  • In debt
  • Worth a try

Whilst each of these reasons is valid, not one of them will be successful without these two overriding requirements:

  • The unwavering desire to be successful.
  • The unwavering commitment until you reach your desire.
  • Throughout my long career, not only in my business interests, but also in my online marketing, I’ve seen too many people fall by the wayside because they lacked in one or both of these vital requirements.

    Usually both.

    So having the desire to be successful and the commitment to make that desire a reality then you are now in a very strong position to begin to realize your goals.

    The Main Requirements

    Firstly we MUST treat this as a business. All businesses start small. It’s only with education, patience, commitment AND investment that any business can grow and prosper. When I say investment I not only mean investment in monetary terms but also in time. These are the fundamental requirements for a successful business.

    • Education. (Knowledge)
    • Patience
    • Commitment
    • Investment

    Where Do I Start?

    I expect you’ve read this a thousand times but the ONLY way to start a successful online business is:

  • Have a product, service or information to sell.
  • Build a website to advertise your product.
  • Drive interested visitors to your site.
  • Rinse and repeat this process over and over again.
  • This obviously is only in it’s most simplistic form and each one of these points needs to be investigated and expanded on in order to get the desired results and generate a passive income online.

    As we progress I’ll be taking each of these points step by step, giving you all the information you will need to start making passive marketing profits.

Knowing What To Market Online

what to market online

How Do I Start?

When considering your new online business knowing what to market online is probably the hardest thing to do for newcomers to the internet marketing world.

There a millions of products, services and information programs online and millions of sites trying to promote them. As an online marketer it’s your job to find such products that will appeal to your intended audience and to later build your website around these select products.

Just selling any product online is hard.

Very hard.

Selling something you know a lot about is so much easier, the reason being is that you can write about it with complete confidence. And that confidence will ultimately rub off onto your site visitors, making them much more comfortable in buying from you.

The keyword here is “Authority”

You must be able to demonstrate authority in your chosen subject above all else. This is where the “Education” or “Knowledge” I wrote about earlier comes into play.

Otherwise you just become another “product pusher” and your chances of success are severely diminished.

How To Become An Authority

Do you have a pastime, hobby or other interest that you are passionate about? I’m certain that most of you have, and if that’s the case then you can already be seen to be an “authority”. It’s not rocket science to do a search on your passion and see just how many people are also searching the very same thing.

These can be your future customers!

But slow down!

You need to refine your passion down to a specific niche market in order to distance yourself from the masses. By doing this you can target specific visitors to your niche and this is where you become a real authority, and this is where the REAL sales eventuate.

Dmoz Check it Out Here! is the largest public directory around and is invaluable for online marketers as it covers a massive selection of ideas to choose from. You can keep drilling down under your preferred subject and you will find many many sub niches on which in a few minutes work you can choose for your campaign.

The fact that this is a completely free resource is a huge bonus for anyone wanting to research their chosen niche, or indeed look for new ones.


Get your niche market right first, the associated products will follow.

You’ve Found A Specific Niche What Next?

specific niche

Take The Following Actions

Once you have found a specific niche which you want to be seen as an authority on there are a number of actions you need to take:

1. Comprehensive research of your niche.

Is is vital that you become a recognized authority on your niche in the eyes of your intended audience. Assembling all the relevant information on your niche so you have sufficient related subjects that you can expand on in writing your sites’ content. This is a MUST for finally indexing your site on the major search engines.

2. Keyword Research

Keyword research for your niche is the NUMBER ONE action that has to be done properly if you want to have a successful site. The right keywords in the right places are vital to getting regular organic traffic from the search engines.

Do NOT even think about building a site unless this has been done thoroughly in the first place as you will be wasting your time and money. You only have to look at the millions of searches done online for the popular keywords or phrases. If you are satisfied using these popular keywords or phrases I’m afraid your site will be doomed.

How can your new site ever be found among those millions of searches a month? The answer is it won’t! Most beginners in the online market make this fatal mistake, their websites get no traffic, they give up and waste their money.

But if you maintain your desire to succeed, are patient, willing to learn and do things in the right order then you will succeed.

With your niche decided you need to start researching the best keywords to use. What you need to do is to find those keywords or phrases that have good monthly search volumes but LOW competition. How do you find these?

The only way that the seasoned online marketers find and use these low competition keywords is through the use of a dedicated Keyword Research Tool. That’s the reason that they can keep ahead of their competition, and there’s a lot out there!

I cannot stress enough how important this is.

The words and phrases you finally decide upon should, if possible, be used not only in your posts and pages but also your main keyword phrase should be used as the title of your website.

The only keyword research tool that I use, and that I highly recommend, is called JAAXY. Check Jaaxy Out Here I use it in all my online marketing programs.

Jaaxy is free to trial for your first thirty searches, then there is a monthly membership fee of $19 for the full version. This tool is the best investment you will ever make in starting your online marketing business.

3. Putting Your Information On Paper.

My suggestion is that you will need at least a minimum of ten posts or pages related to your niche, each one between 750 too 1500 words long. Relevant graphics on these pages will add to the overall presentation, but don’t overdo it. Two graphics per page is sufficient for the search engines. This may sound daunting at first, but if you are really passionate about your niche you will generally find that the words will flow easily.

My advice is to begin with your in depth keyword research for your niche before you begin writing. The keyword phrases that you come up with MUST be used, not only in the title of your post or page, but also you MUST use this phrase in the first paragraph of the content you are writing. Do NOT stuff your content with the phrase or the search engines will penalize you. If you just study this post you will see that I have used a keyword phrase “specific niche” in my title and once in the first paragraph.

And that goes for all my posts.

Write some content, make sure that you proof read it thoroughly or get someone else to read it. It’s vital that your content is error free. Or you can use this Readability Score Site to check how easy your content is to read.

4 Conclusion

  • Research your niche thoroughly and become an Authority on your subject.
  • Do thorough Keyword Research using a dedicated Research Tool.
  • Jaaxy should be your first consideration when choosing a keword research tool.
  • Write some content using your keywords, test it and file it for later.
  • Remember, this is NOT a race, do each step thoroughly and don’t miss anything out.

Passive Online Income CB 3.0 Review

So What’s CB Passive Income 3.0 All About?

passive online income

Many newcomers to affiliate marketing use the services of companies such as Clickbank to try their hand at earning passive online income. Clickbank offers a wide range of digital products that cover a multitude of niches and by marketing any of these products the affiliate can earn commissions.

The products range from eBooks and software and are easily downloaded by the purchaser, making the process simple for the new affiliate marketer to enter the market.

Using a range of advertising techniques the affiliate marketer can promote a product, or a range of products’ These advertising techniques can include:

  • Email marketing
  • PPC advertising
  • Social Media advertising
  • Web site promotion
  • Solo advertising

One product that utilizes many of the resources available on Clickbank has been developed by Patric Chan, a long time internet marketer, and it’s named “CB Passive Income 3.0

CB Passive Income 3.0 is essentially a system for newcomers to the affiliate marketing scene and relies on building an email list which can then be used to market a range of Clickbank products.
Patric Chan uses these points to explain what the average newcomer will face if trying to “go it alone”. And I quote:

• It’s not easy to create a top notch web page that can convert subscribers very well. Also, putting the effort to continue testing it for improvement is tough.

• It’s not easy to come up with an attractive but free offer that can entice the visitor to subscribe. Our “secret web page” can convert subscribers at almost a 50% conversion rate!

• Newbies do not have any proven credibility in the internet marketing niche, therefore, it’s very hard to “command” any attention from visitors and subscribers

• Unless the Newbie is in the market long enough, he or she wouldn’t know what products to promote or how to promote them effectively!

• Most newbies don’t have the technical software and know-how to get started – domain name, hosting, an auto-responder for emailing and so on. Not to mention, all of these can be quite overwhelming to understand.

• Many simply do not have the time to create a membership program and be able to continually add content inside it. Without ongoing content, you’ll lose the subscribers quickly.

• They would also need to be true masters of email marketing because the fact is, the money is really made by SENDING CAREFULLY CRAFTED EMAILS.

• Despite what the Gurus have been pitching before, it’s not entirely true that there is zero cost to start a solid internet business. There are costs involved… especially with hiring designers, writers, etc! On top of that, hosting and autoresponders are monthly cost.

• When a newbie gets started, he or she needs a coach for guidance and advice

• But the most complex matter of all is structuring a SYSTEM that can be highly profitable going forward.

So Patrics’ pitch is to offer to set up all of these “technical” issues for you and virtually give you a complete turnkey business that requires little input from you. And this in itself is what this system is all about. It’s designed for the newcomer to think that they will be making passive income online very quickly and with hardly any work to do by themselves.

In return for this it is up to you to drive traffic to the CB Passive Income 3.0 website provided and collect the email addresses which will be used in your marketing business selling Patric Chans’ products. Email marketing has been in operation for many, many years and is a proven way to promote offers and make sales.

Most newcomers to online marketing find that obtaining sufficient email addresses to promote successfully is probably the hardest thing to do. If you manage to get one sale for every 100 emails sent out to a list then it’s not hard to realize just how many you need in your list to start generating passive marketing profits.

So What Do You Get With CB Passive Income 3.0

These tools come with the Membership:

• Email newsletters

All these tools are pretty much automated after you setup everything properly as shown in your training. However you still have to get traffic to these offers, this is not done for you. And it can be expensive.

• S1 for a 14 Day trial

What are The Pitfalls?

Basically you don’t have any real control in a number of areas:

  • You have to go with their website designs,
  • You have to use their email content
  • You have to use their products.
  • Unless you upgrade you don’t have access to the email addresses you’ve generated.
  • It’s an expensive program just to generate email addresses.

Anything Good About CB Passive Income 3.0?

For the complete beginner there may be some benefit with CB Passive Income 3.0 in learning a little about how internet marketing actually works.

My Recommendation?

Look elsewhere.

If you are really serious about earning passive income online I would suggest you look at a program that offers you complete training and support for setting up a REAL internet marketing business.

My recommendation is to seriously consider “Wealthy Affiliate.”.
