3 Secrets To Create An Online Profit Machine - Articles Surfing

So how can the average Joe with little to no e-business experience create a profitable website that generates cash 24/7? In this short article, you will discover a simple blueprint that can do wonders to your bank account. While there is no promise of over'night riches, a little sweat and a few late nights will put you well on your way to building your very own online profit machine.

You ready? Here we go '

Step 1 - Develop your own Info Product
Let's face it we live in an information age. Never in the history of the world has it been so easy
to get what you want and when you want it all with a few strokes on the keyboard. So what will your product be? Information.

Think about it, why go through the hassle of building a widget, dealing with inventory, shipping, suppliers, etc ' when you can write almost anything put a title on it and sell it. You might be thinking, 'What me an author? Come on' ' you can do it, anyone can. Yes, you might need to do a little research and pick an appropriate topic, but once it's written, then you can sell, sell, sell. And your product never runs out!

When writing your ebook, special report, or manual here are a few guidelines to consider:

' Focus on a niche market:
Not 'How to Negotiate' but 'How to Negotiate when Buying a New Car'

' There must be an interest that benefits the reader primarily by

- making money
- saving money
- making life easier
- healthier life etc'

' What problem will your book solve? If it's a book about 'The Different Lighthouses of the World', it maybe interesting, but I doubt anyone would buy that.

Lastly, pick a topic that you personally have an interest in, or something that you're good at. 'How to '.' titles make excellent ebooks. Many first time authors pick a 'How to' book as their first venture.

After your product is written, convert it into PDF form, the most popular document for informational products.

Step 2 - Setup your 2 page website
Now that you have your info product, the next step is creating a website for your sales page.
This is a simple 2 page website, 1 page for your sales copy and another for purchasing your product.

If you don't have a website you can get one through bluehost.com or dot5hosting.com, they both have a Web Site Creator which makes it very simple to get your pages up and running in a few hours.

Next, focus on your Landing Page or sales page. Use the following outline to craft your landing page:

' Magnetic Headline that pulls readers into the copy
' Who are you?
' What do you got?
' Your Unique Selling Position
' Make the font and format easy on the eyes
' Spice it up with a few Testimonials (if you have them)
' Deliver an Iron-Clad Guarantee
' Throw in a few freebies
' Finally, a call to action

That's it' Remember to play around with the headlines and sales copy to see what works and what doesn't.

Your second page just needs to accept payment of some sort, paypal and credit cards are the standards these days. Don't worry you will not have to pay hundreds of dollars to set this up. Clickbank.com offers a one-time setup fee of $50 to take payments on your behalf for a small percentage. It's quick and easy to register. Go ahead and check it out!

Step 3 - Drive Traffic and Optimize
Now that you have your product, and have a website to sell it, you just need to drive traffic to your website so people can spend their money. This is probably the most difficult part of the 3-step approach. This will take some effort and testing on your part, but once a steady stream of visitors are arriving everyday, you can just sit back and watch the sales roll in.

Here are some pointers for driving traffic to your site:

' Write useful articles and submit them to article directories. (This is probably the quickest way to get people to come your way, and best of all its free!) Write about 1 a day for 1-2 months and submit it to about 10-20 article directories. It works.
' Link exchanges
' Posting in relevant forums with your signature
' Google adwords
' SEO Optimization

There are others, but these will give you a start. And trust me, when you get your first sell, there is no greater feeling! Good Luck!
