    Hello Everyone,
    I purchased the Profit Lance System several weeks ago and have found alot of good information in it. I've basically learned a little about a lot, if that makes any sense. My problem is being overwelmed with information. Being new to this and still somewhat skeptical, I don't know what direction to go in. I know adwords is bad for beginners. A little experiment I tried cost $342. My wife had a cow in the living room. Oh yea, it happened. I got banned from my own computer. Basically, I guess I need some guidance. I like the idea of affiliate marketing but don't know the best way to go about it. Would anyone have any step-by-step advice or "blueprint" to get started? Any good "systems" or "programs" you guy's might recommend? Thanks in advance -Shawn

    Oh Shawn,

    I'm sorry to hear of your "blues" but I had to chuckle at your wife's reaction to your 'experiment.' What a shame you had to learn the hard way on that one.

    I determined not to spend any money on advertising when I started out. I wanted to learn to generate free traffic from the search engines.

    The program that I use to build, host, and maintain my sites is called SiteBuildIt. They have a step by step Action Guide that includes a very integrated software system that makes it possible for you to build a niche site that generates free targeted traffic from the search engines. You can choose almost any site concept you could imagine.

    They also have advanced research/brainstorming tools to help you determine the best niche topic for you. I was completely green when I started and absolutely EVERYTHING was over my head! [​IMG]

    SBI is laid out in such a way that you just follow instructions and, of course, put in your own efforts (brains and motivation) to produce real results.

    In the free ebooks I mention below, you will find some helpful affiliate marketing tools that can help you to make what you've already learned a little easier to understand.

    Blessings,
    Angie

    Oh dear - yes, I know the feeling - it's my hubby that used to have calves in the kitchen.

    But there are absolutely free ways to do online marketing and I would be happy to at least share what I know about it - which is not that much but at least I no longer spend ay money to advertise and get just as much traffic as when I did -lol

    I have some information on my websites but feel free to shout at me.

    Thanks Everyone!
    I'll put these materials to good use and see if I can make heads and tails of it. Angie is also my wife's name. She wasn't happy. Thanks again everyone. -Shawn

    Hi Guys,
    I am from South Africa and a newbie to internet marketing. Bought PL about 3 weeks ago. Am just so glad I chose PL when I could've been caught with all the scams out there. When I first received PL I started working downward through the left side tabs. Every night after work I would sit until about 2am ploughing through all the info, but eventually about half way through, it just started swimming around in my brain causing total confusion. Talk about overload, lol. I then looked to see if I could find further info and came across this forum ??“ lucky me [​IMG] I read every archived post until my brain ached. Somehow the light started growing brighter as I read. Things started making sense and I now have a much clearer picture and think I am grasping the concept of PL. However, even though I read Aff Marketing seems to be the way to start, I still cannot develop a definite plan of action or find that special niche. After doing a little further research on this forum, I have now decided to purchase My Online Income System, as they seem to have a plan of action to follow and perhaps I can use this system in conjunction with PL? Then again, somehow or other SBI keeps popping up at me which also looks attractive with all the built in help tools it seems to have? Decisions, decisions... Before I go I would just like to say a BIG thank you to all you PL mentors who put in the time and effort to answer us newbies who ask the same questions over and over. Bless you, you are a great help.

    Shawn, I too am sorry about your expense but also had to have a chuckle about the cow [​IMG] I know what you mean about not having any direction..at the moment it sucks, but I am sure we will overcome it.

    ShawnT72: Angie is also my wife's name. She wasn't happy.

    You hang in there and get a handle on this stuff and she'll be grinning eventually. [​IMG]

    Hi Shawn,
    Joe here. Buddy I know what you are going through! My wife and I bought Profit Lance about 4 months ago and yes it is very over- whelming! After about a month with PL we came to this conclusion. First of all it is not a scam and it is loaded with great information, probably everything you need to be successful. But here's the reality check. The guy that wrote it is British and is sometimes hard to understand. He's one of those people that obviously knows what he's talking about but is not good at teaching it. He jumps around all over the place. His system is not laid out very well. Also his videos have no way to stop and start them. You turn them on and they run so fast you have no time to take notes which is what I like to do with videos.

    So this is what we did. We started going through his system, lesson by lesson to get what we could from it. Then I went to either Youtube or an article site like Ezinearticles and pulled up a video or an article on the subject. That gave me the opportunity to learn it at my own pace and in my own way. That has really worked for us. Now a little more than 4 months later we have a pretty good handle on SEO, getting traffic and all the other things you need to know about internet marketing. 2 important things I have learned about getting traffic are to use videos on sites like Youtube and writing articles where you include a link to your website at the bottom in the resource box. Bith of these methods work great.

    It is a lot to learn but you'll get there. Feel free to email me with questions and I'll be glad to help you.

    Shawn, you're not the first.

    I did the same. Except I was lucky not have anyone freak out except myself.

    My suggestions is to really go over the material in Profit Lance about AdWords (you find most pof it under the affiliate marketign tab). Start there - once you understand this, you are ready to move on with your internet marketing.

    AdWords takes a while to master, but once you do it's like a money machine. I've sunk thousands to no avial and in the end I just learned to live with it and move on with whatever is profitable.

    Let me ask you something, happywife?

    Tell me please, how do you host your page, where and also... is this hosting server allowing you to have multiple domains, or just one?

    Thanks.

    This is not business. Why wouldn't you add some little information here (since I've already lost my time reading your non-helpful message), and than I might go to your site if I see quality in your respond.

    This is what ShawnT72 wil need too. We don't need to ask people to go on our websites. This is too "asking - begging". [​IMG]

    Just my 2c fyi.

    Everyone of us had to be a newbie some times, right? And I am at this moment too. But as you said, we ask, qualified people are answering our questions and that is how we will become qualities in this marketing system. [​IMG] Bless you too.

    I'd just like to add one thing I forgot:

    The most important thing is to keep moving forward.

    We are going to takes blows and strike out a few times (specially in the beginning). But the difference between the ones who make it and the ones who fail, is that these people don't give up - they find a way to make it work and move on.

    The only way that Profit Lance won't work for you, is if you give up on it.

    Wishing You success!

    fbl3ssingm: Let me ask you something, happywife?

    Tell me please, how do you host your page, where and also... is this hosting server allowing you to have multiple domains, or just one?


    As I said in the post you quoted, I host my sites with SiteBuildIt (SBI). They aren't really a typical 'hosting company,' but a site building company. They include the domain and hosting in their package deal.

    You only get to host 1 site per package that you buy. The package basically includes the domain, hosting, block by block site builder, the step by step training, the members forum, the automatic blogger, autoresponders, ezine, page analyzer, etc. They submit each of your new pages to the major search engines for you as you build them, do all of your tracking of your links, etc. I'm sure there is more they do behind the scenes that I am not aware of, but it is well worth the $25 a month that it costs.

    If you are just wanting to build a number of 'mini-sites' than SBI wouldn't be for you. It's more for people who are wanting to build substantial sites for longterm growth and business building.

    I have three sites that I am building with SBI. I did purchase 2 of them during one of their specials so I didn't pay full price for them all, but, even if I had, I would still consider it money well spent.

    If I ever decide to build mini-sites (it could happen! [​IMG] ) as landing pages or something, I wouldn't build them with SBI because it wouldn't be cost effective for the purposes. But neither would I expect them to rank well in the search engines and bring in a ton of free traffic.

    I hope that clears things up a bit.

    Blessings,
    Angie

    No. I do not want to create mini-sites. My point is that after some researches, I've found that some hosting companies offer different packages of hosting websiteS. So, it's not only one website, but many (unlimited). This with different domains. This is what I'm looking for. They are not mini websites. I will rather pay an early subscription and have multiple domains for the same package, than keeping them apart and pay $25/month.

    [​IMG] Thank you for the clarification.

    I'm still digging onto this cause I have big plans. Just need some time since my wife's out of all these IT stuff, and I'm the only one with the GUN in hand, and on the field against the enemy, of course. Lol

    Well, best of luck to you then.

    Be sure to take the time to learn how to build your sites properly so that you will get search engine traffic. That's what a lot of people struggle with. I've seen some beautiful sites that are very poorly ranked just because the builder did not understand certain building principles.

    Blessings,

    This is what i sent shawnT72

    I own profit lance and owe most of my education to this program however there are a couple of ebooks that could help,

    There is a free affiliate marketing course written by ken envoy from SBI now i cant post the link but i have noticed in happywifes FREE eBooks link in the signature she has a link to it [​IMG]

    Alongside this I purchased honest riches from holly mann this is another great ebook ($37)

    Both of these are good and both compliment the profit lance course
