If you use surveymonkey.com to create a survey and email it to people, I think you will get more responses to this question. Most people (off the top of their head) may not remember everything they need help with. I have filled out several surveys like this before. Sometimes the person includes a free gift for those that take the survey, such as a short PDF, free report, etc. I hope this helps you!
How to make blogging efforts pay off. I’m still unclear on the whole thing. How to be helpful and profitable at the same time.

How to get blog traffic?
I am having trouble with the technical aspects. I try different things that everyone says are easy but i can never get them to work. It is getting very frustrating, I want to succeed at this very much but don’t seem to have the know how to do what every one says is easy.
…definitely not my forte.
put me behind my drums and im solid, without them… whole new story 🙂
You da man buddy!
How to start, from the beginning to make money from the internet and go from there.
I have pretty good marketing skills I just need to learn how to put my information on website
properly. Thank You
I want to learn everything from the beginning. I am what you call a newbie. I have purchased several programs that are suppose to take you by the hand and teach how to start a online business. About setting up blogs, traffic, ect. ect. I have spent probably close to a $1,000.00 or more and I still am not getting it. HELP HELP HELP!!!!!
Many new marketers need free marketing resources particularly in these tough economic times.
I also believe that many new marketers need help with lead capture using the squeeze page. Your thoughts in 09 would be great!
You put out great stuff Reed, looking forward to next years contributions!
My comment is how to generate free traffic as well as to build a large mail list.My blog http://personalwealth.com needs your help,Reed.Ever since I set up the blog I have’t made a single sale.
Damass last blog post..SUPPORT ME
I am also a newbie with a google campaign running on my website but it is not doing great so I really need help please I don’t know what to do next I have recieved and paid over $10,000 dollars on information and I am still struggling!!!!!
There are so many so called gurus telling and selling there deal.What i would love to see is someone to be the first to put out and e-z ABC 123 video tutorials on each of the steps form beginer to advance methods and software/programs ect… to get a website up and running getting leads/list traffic sales ect… WITHOUT ALL THE HOOPLAH meaning all those other gurus are selling in reality there in home system which i feel trapped in some membership nightmare that doesnt really offer me anything substantial in growing my buisness.
They are vultures living off of others by upselling more products after they lure you in with that trial period $1 which they have all your data and attention to have you sell there buisness/program to others in turn you make a percentage/affiliates ect… ALL I WANT IS SOMETHING CLEAN E-Z TO UNDERSTAND WITHOUT ME SELLING THERE SYSTEM FOR THEM. Teach me how to do it myself, i want to sell my own stuff i have other websites that sell other products too.I have a mlm site I also have a retail site. so show me how to rank high with google with out all thise expensives, how and what to use for a landing and squeeze page, how do i market my niche? and make money at the same time. that would be of help . you can also contact me to discuss this more in detail
Good questions. I know about monetization on the blog, but it is not sufficient getting a few dollars from Adsense or other advertisers.
Affialiate Marketing is not difficult but it is not that easy too. How to be more profitable in it ?
I agreem with Lorrie and Pat on the case of more free stuff and i realize that there is certain stuff that needs to be paid for but a newbie that is just getting in to any form of marketing needs th basic info to get establishedand start making at least a min. amount of money to be able to go on to purchase the bigger paying info. Like her (lorrie) I have purchased stuff only to find out that it requires me to already be established, have a list, be making some sort of money already. If I had the knowledge of what to put in place to help others to get started I could probably be making a substantial amount of money. Sorry so long but I think a lot of these “gurus” are taking advantage of newbies and intermediate marketers. No whining from me you asked a question we give you the answer.
Hey Reed, I would like to have more infor about the squeeze page, more about good content, and what conversion is. Thank you very much. Anna
I agree with Pat, free marketing resources would be great. Also zero in on getting traffic, No Traffic No Sales – no matter how great the product or service. How to find good relevant long pharse keywords would also be helpful.
Davids last blog post..You Have Been LIED To About SEO …..
With Google Adsense, how do you optimize your Website or Authenticate it. I am having difficulty in setting this up, therefore, I am loosing money as a result.
Plus, setting up a Capture Page for my Website.
Thanks so much for all your excellent information…
Hi Reed, I agree completely with Lorrie’s comment . I am just not getting it. I need to learn everything from the beginning but half the time I don’t even understand the language you Internet Successes use-Ha! Also how to not get ripped off/burned by sites/programs. Is there anyone who still believes in “TRUTH IN ADVERTISING” ? Or maybe I am too gullible and naive!Thanks, Kristi
hi Reed, i need to know how to transfare imformation to ezines and web pages, i am sorry to ask for help but i have no idea.
Getting traffic is my biggest problem.
Also, opening my emails runs less than 10% so that is also my biggest problem.
I really do not stay subscribed to people who email me every day, and often twice a day. If you continue to do this, sorry but I must unsub.
I would lke to see how to set up a affiliate page,I just can’t get it, I want to make one page ads Thank You Henry
My main problem is deciding on the direction that I should take.
I get so much sent to my email inbox, telling me I should do this or that, that I find it all a little depressing.
I guess that mentoring is the main help that I need but there are so many people out there offering this – how can I gauge if they’re genuinely good at what they do?

How can I increase my cash flows ASAP?
Thanks for the offer of support.
I have two areas where I need help: 1 – How do you drive more traffic to your site without spending tons of cash? 2 – More user friendly info about blogging. It’s still a grey area for me I’m afraid!
As several of the others said it would be great to have some sort of step by step guide.
Anyone that’s involved in any way with Internet Marketing knows that “Content is King”. I would like to know two things.
First, if I want to outsource the creation of content for my blog or articles to drive traffic to my websites, where else can I go other than the usual places like elance.com, ezinearticles.com, goarticles.com, or any other place like these.
Second, there are tons of great videos on YouTube that are apparently OK to use on your websites because the creators of these videos give you the code to “cut and paste” so you can embed the video on your webpage or blog.
A lot of marketers do use these videos on their websites but I have not as yet because I’m not sure if it’s ethical or not. Even though they give you the code I don’t think you should be using someone else’s video unless you have their permission to do so.
What is your take on this?
Jeff Sargents last blog post..4 Vital Tools For Affiliate Marketing Beginners
Little more understanding about squeeze pages would be good. The Idea is pretty straight forward but do you have to purchase a domain name & hosting for each squeeze page? If so what sort of domain name is best to use since it’s not like a normal website.
Most domain names you can get for around $10 USD (been in Australia that’s about $15) so If you have to purchase a domain name for each affiliate program, say you have 10, just to run your squeeze page your looking at $1000 (Aust. $1500) 🙁 that’s a lot of money if your not making any money at first.
Blogging sounds like a solution but then what’s the best domain name for a blog since you can talk about anything on your blog.
Thanks for the chance to ask some questions 🙂
This might sound a little unconventional but
the main thing I want to learn about Internet
Marketing is to find connections TO THE GURUS
So I can learn from them about how they succeed
and how I can model after their success.
Reason I’m saying that is because I know that
the fastest way to succeed is when you model
someone who has achieved what you want to
achieve in life.
If you can answer this, Reed, that would be
incredible. The only thing I can think of
right now to get their attention is to have
a product of my own and somehow make a name
for myself online, much like you have.

first of all I should know how to create a web-site independently . I’m lacking in techniques and funds too . It seems to me difficult to start up an online business from scratch . We always hear about the possibility to acquire and run a viral business without any technical skills nor even a dime . tell no brainer- may be he wont subscribe to this point of view . When will I be able to build my own home business without technical expertise ? How to highlight this problamatique please Mr Floren !

Hi Reed: You ask what needed to learn. I need help building a website and how to write a campaign. I realy enjoyed your tape and I got a lot out of it. Thanks Eugene Horton
I’m with Pat, I’m a newby and do not have the income to buy expensive resources to make that “first sale”. A person once said, “you can do anything with good enough instructions.” For me, what works, is hopefully a step by step instruction plan for the beginner to make their first sale for little to nothing. The beginner then has a way to make their first monies so they can duplicate that first sale, take the money, reinvest in their business until they can grow and achieve their goals (making a living on internet). I personally am interested in beginning at the affiliate level until I can come up with my own product! Thanks for this opportunity to put our input into your publications.
Greetings Reed, Thomas Richmond here, its always encouraging to see you online my friend, your question “how can i help you market online” or What can i do to help your business grow” well as for me my business grows every single day but i have been at a crossroads with so many of my friends some who have been mutual friends setting up telaseminars usually there done with partners. SO this is where i have trouble with, so many are too busy to take notice of my couriosity i think maybe they think i can handle it on my own? i’m not sure why. Some advice there buddy would be greatly appreciated. 🙂
I have it almost all ready to go now. Launching the product soon.
My niche is VERY small and tageted. How can I get lots of opt-ins in such a tiny niche?
Given so many people being laid off in this economy I would say a product/course that showed you a-z how to make your first $1000 online in 30days or something to that effect would be a big hit.
After having a big job loss..10K+a month,, I’m trying to rebuild my financial base online and have income come from a variety of sources vs one. I would much rather make $1000 from one online income source and $500 from another one and so on.

Tims last blog post..Make money by selling information pt 2
Wer’e new to internet marketing and MLM and finding the whole thing overwhelming, there is so much info, sorting the good from the bad is doing my head in.
I need help with a plan to develop a successful internet business
is affliates a way to go?
i want to terminate my full time job and devote full time in this new venture.
how long will it take to begin receiving an income. i must make a base of 4,000 per month for my basic bills.
If i can see that amount each month i can quite this job and devote full time in this new internet business
i would appreciate your suggestions to help me become successful.
Compelling (gutsy) question and great idea to ask us for feedback.
The trouble with the question, is that the answers will vary widely.
Each of us come to the internet with certain expectations (mostly earning money) and with it we bring our own personal knowledge and experiences, or the lack of them.
The question that each and every one of us should answer first is “What problem am I passionate about helping others solve”?
A lot of us have come to the internet as though it were a magic wishing well (the hype and get rich quick pitches helped us think that way) and as a result we have been mislead into thinking that it’s easy to make money by doing little or nothing.
Personally I started as a student to someone of guru status and I have yet to make it as big as promised.
It was largely my fault for expecting a fantasy income to come easily, and for not knowing how much I was expected to know (mostly technically in my case) before I started.
I am finally finding my spot online (actually it will be helping offline businesses get onlne for leads) but I’m doing it by assessing my personal skills and talents and applying them to business first (a need for affordable marketing help in the offline business world) and then using elements of the internet as effective tools.
The money we want to earn, ultimately has to come from somewhere, and money generally flows to good ideas and to the best solutions.
Good solutions, from knowledgeable passionate people, for existing problems will see the best money flow.
I’m grateful for the potential of the internet as a whole in spite of not hitting the (income) strides I’d like to hit just yet.
I think a FREE short bite sized step by step how you can earn 1000 dollars a month online starting from a specified point of knowledge and experience “little or no experience” would make whoever came up with it a total rock star.
It could be packages and sold as a solution to many of us on this list in fact.
If so many gurus, have made so much money online, why haven’t they been able to simplify the process to a point where we can grasp it?
I say we (haven’t made much money online yet in spite of a lot of time and money spent trying) should challenge them (“gurus” who say you can do it if you buy my “blah blah blah” product) to prove it to us by taking ten of us (qualified by our commitment and current knowledge) by the hand and actually help us get to the point that they promise, before we spend another nickel on anything that anyone sells.
Sorry for the rant, Just thinking out loud.
Want to form a group of internet business test case guinea pigs with me? let me know email@example.com with
Reed blog comment in the subject line.
Noreen, I finally gave up completely on adsense, so don’t feel bad. They have absolutely no customer service, if you can’t find the answer to your questions from FAQ or Forums, you can’t find the answer, because you will get 0 help from google. Don’t think of it as loosing money, there were plenty of people making lots of money before google even existed and if they go under tommorrow something else will replace it there will still be plenty of people making money on the net with or without google.
Personally I opened up an adsense account in 2006 and have yet to receive 1 penny in revenue from them even though the ads have run on several of my niche sites. So to me adsense has been no more than a waste of time.
So what would I like to learn about Internet Marketing?
Basically I would like an honest program or blueprint that is priced reasonably. I don’t mind paying for good information and assistance. I absolutely hate wasting time and money.
As I’ve been affiliate marketing since 1997 I feel I have more solutions than questions! Note though that these answers and solutions originate from others like Stompernet, M. Joyner, Nitro guys, Ewen Chia, Yanik Silver, Michael Campbell, Clayton Makepeace, Gary Bencivenga, Dan Levis, Dan Kennedy. I’m not just dropping names. I say go search these people and imitate a little. Create a swipe file, learn their traffic tactics, etc. Learn their advice on Headlines. The onus is on US to learn this stuff. Did I forget John Carlton? What an impressive writer the guy is. And David Garfinkel – killer copy tactics.
YES a need: getting more High PR backlinks!
See how Traffic Kahuna resolve this one, using a network of blogs you can post articles to..
One thing I did in the past that worked really well is sending my list a sq page with a question field asking “what’s your most pressing internet marketing challenge”. Another way is to ask the Question is “If you had a chance to ask an internet expert one question for FREE, what would it be?. Hope this helps.

It has been difficult to find out a lot about how to do integration marketing without spending an arm and a leg.
I tried to entice people in allied niches to add a link to my Clickbank product on their thank you pages, but with one exception, this has fallen on deaf years. I suspect that the product has to have a high enough commission to make it worth it for many to bother with this, or there may be an approach that works best that I just haven’t discovered yet.
Anyway, more on integration marketing would be helpful.
Elizabeth Nicholss last blog post..Here’s an under rated traffic tip you can use now
Thanks Reed, your article never fail to impress me, as you mentioned what the biggest struggle for me on IM, at the moment I am making my breakthrough to get quick and free massive traffic, for the past 1 month I have found my way doing it, still I want to do more exposure on SEO on/off page and free massive traffic, since in my opinion that traffic is the heart pulse of every Internet Marketing, furthermore I think the next level I want to do is research and study after you get massive traffic then how do you convert into sales and optimize every traffic that hits your blog.I think that’s the agenda I am looking for my further study.Thanks Reed

Chris Shouses last blog post..Summerlin Real Estate Update Nov. 22- Nov. 28 2008
I’m with you! I’ve outspent you by about 7 times and am still where I started from….square one! I wish we could get step by step items needed, ie, niche (mt everest), webstite, domain name, webhost, auto responder, merchant accts. (needed?), paypal, clickbank….once we would get the site up, again step by step b/c there is html language included which is greek to me, adding a button on the site, having a front end item and then a back end….these are all that I’ve learned since Feb of this year. I had hoped to go online and be producing income by the end of the summer. I have at least 4 domain names, products to sell and am so overwhelmed as to how to but it all together!!! Do you think we are on the same page? lol….I’m NOT giving up, just a little frustrated and will not spend another dime until I get my first dollar! Keep the Faith, we will PROSPER!
this is lourdes here.
It would be wonderful if there is a mentoring program where we can have access to somebody over the phone whenever we have a question.
The program must be affordable for newbies like us. I had enrolled in a program but when I have a question, I have to go to the forum and send a message to someone there and wait until I receive the answer. It is very frustrating. There are mentoring programs that offer unlimited phone consultations but they
start at $2,500. If you can have a mentoring program with a phone support system, that will
really meet a great need. That is a service that is badly needed by us newbies.
My main problem is what i would call information overload.I have soo much from so many sources but am unable to sort them out. i mean the wheat fom the chuff. Can u give us a programe flow from start to finish like a syllabus kind of, for a begginer to finishin internet marketing.

I am a complete dummy when it comes to computer and internet technical knowledge. In other words, I need somebody to lead me by the hand. I am completely flustered with clickbank, and I have a bunch of web sites started, but operating or making any money yet. Who knows, maybe this will be my week or month.
How do I sell myself as an internet “expert”? You did it well, Reed
Reed,amigo ,solo quiero que me des la oportunidad ,dd estar en la red,y poder ganar ,x cantidad de dinero USD,estoy decempleado ,solo tengo mi ordenador y 6 horas de internet,por dia,dime como hacer esto ,concretamente ,o en automatico ,pero ya quiero ganar algo ,estoy decesperado,mi familia esta al borde del avismo,por problemas economicos.
Espero tu pronta respuesta.
I have no marketing skills but I want to make some (good) money by doing online business. I almost do not have an idea about how I can start. I assume that I may start an online shop, a blog, a minisite for some products (I don’t have yet any of mine). I may do the techie stuff by myself. But I need a hand for help indeed. Namely, it can be a mentor for doing the things in the proper order. I am writing you these things because I hope that you may help me.

How do I automate the marketing tasks without leaving footprints that will be penalized by Google?
Oh oh, Do I smell a paid coaching program on it’s way??I just found three high profile people who were advertising free sites loaded with software and free downloads that is yours for the taking. I could not figure out why they would be offering all of this for free. Then two out of the three sites announced that they were going to offer a paid coaching program. The claim was that this coaching program would take someone far beyond the free site with private coaching from this successful millionaire who would tell you all of his important secrets. But saying that I don’t feel like I have been duped because no one has to join the private coaching program, and you can still take advantage of and use all of the free stuff on his site. You still learn many things even if you never learn his secrets. Please!! Then again they may well be worth it. None of them have announced a price as of yet. Are you Reed, thinking of something like this??
Thanks for asking. I agree with many of the others that we need a blueprint. Step 1, 2, 3, etc. All the gurus do is drop a tad of information and charge you a lot for some more. I have not bought much from them. My favorite guru is John Cow, Jason Potash, I think his name is. You can download his book. I agree we need a group and we can help each other.
I have a few differnt Blogs and a Profit Mart Pro2 site.I put in a few months of time got tried of spending money and not makeing any!
So at this time I;am ready to Quit!But I hate to FAIL!!

How would you help a person who is just

I ask that because I’ve been there,

So… beating information overload or
paralysis by analysis – what are the
doctor’s orders? 🙂
Ashers last blog post..How to Maximise Exposure Using Your Articles
This is great reading. Could I persuade you to make a report on this topic. I mean it would be interesting to know if there are certain needs or people just get stuck somewhere along the line to success at different points.
Boy you are really asking for a lot. What can you write about to help? Everything! No, really there are some things I would like to see you discuss. (1) More Ideas for free traffic; (2) expand your article writing tips; and (3) any new idaes for niche marketing.
Thanks again for all your efforts,
Reed, can i reply to Asher? For beating information overload you need to first ‘clear the stress’ by walking outside for 30 minutes..
Then get a piece of paper and write a Marketing Plan. Select a strategy and resolve to ‘stick to it!’ – for several weeks.
For example my current plan is writing articles on web 2.0 properties like Hubpages, Squidoo and WordPress.com blogs, then linking them all together to gradually build up PR in Google. Then link to your (same topic) affiliate product web page. (Preferably one you wrote yourself.)
STICK to One Plan. Hope this helps.
I think we are all having the same difficulties. Too much info but not sure where to start. And the info is too technical for a newbie. I have purchsed several programs but I only continue to spend more money to not make any money…Need to know basics 101!
Thanks for all your great info, its always helpful and you are a rare gem, you are really trying to help others succeed.
Hello I would like to learn how to attract more traffic and how to go about doing video.
Thank you Scott
Number One is to get a good auto responder, you can do wonder’s with one of these.
I was confused to with everyone telling me to do this and that …………. the main thing is to clear out a lot of the confusion and start with one main thing the auto responder.
Thanks everyone 🙂
Thanks for the question and the approach. I know next to nothing about Internet Marketing (I.M), but I want to know everything. The meaning of the terminologies in I.M,how to create a website for I.M, loading it on the Internet and its complete management etc, etc. Thanks for sending the mail on the newly released Marketing operator – I don’t understand the terminologies involved but looks like a good time saving software. HOW CAN YOU HELP ME?
Hi Reed – great subject as usual… just a quick note to let you know that you have a very nice site here with some good useful information.
