Hey guys I’m Jay Wessman aka ‘The Lazy Stoner’. A lot of you might know me from my blog LazyAssStoner.com. For those of you that don’t I’ve been making money online for a few years now and I’m here to tell you that it’s not actually that hard. In this video I’d like to give you a little bit of an insight into not just how it works but also how you could potentially get started doing it for yourself. Now there’s an awful lot of bad information out there when it comes to making money online. There’s a lot of BS and people telling you wrong things. But if you look in the right places there is good information out there. Basically what I do is called affiliate marketing. There are thousands of affiliate programs that you can join up to that allow you to sell and promote virtually any product on the planet that you want in exchange for a commission.
The best thing is these affiliate programs are completely free to join, they take just a few seconds to sign up and almost every big online retailer has one. Amazon – they’ve got one. eBay – they’ve got one. Apple – they’ve got one. You name it. In fact there’s probably not a single product on the planet that you couldn’t find an affiliate program for. So lets say we wanted to promote a product on Amazon. We just head over to the Amazon affiliate page.
We create an account and then we log in. Now once you’re logged into your Amazon.com affiliate account you can choose from any of their thousands of products and create a link for you to promote. And if people click on that link and buy a product you will get a commission for it. In the case of Amazon you’ll get 4% of whatever the total sales price is but different affiliate programs will vary. Some you’ll get 10%, some you’ll get less, some you’ll get more. So now what you need to do is get people to buy is get people to buy products through this link. You might be saying “so how do I get all this people to click my link and buy things?”.
Well there’s actually a lot of different ways. You could use social networking websites like Facebook and Myspace. You could try your hand at email marketing. Or you could do what I like to do which is building websites for specific products. So for example here’s one way I’ve managed to cash in tens of thousands of dollars by selling bongs online. The first thing I did was go to the Google keyword tool. Now this is just a free tool where you can type in a word and see how many times that word is searched in Google a month. What I did was type in the word ‘bongs’ and then I had a look at all the variations of ‘bongs’ that were searched. Big bongs, small bongs, acrylic bongs, glass bongs – all different types. And then I look a term that’s searched a reasonable amount of time that doesn’t actually have many websites about it. So for this example I settled on ‘Percolator Bongs’.
This one got about 20,000 searches a month yet nobody had built a site dedicated to them. So that’s exactly what I did. I just built a website about percolator bongs – you can see it at PercolatorBongs.net. I used a few very basic link building techniques to get my site ranking a bit which you can read about at my blog LazyAssStoner.com. And within just a couple of months I was easily on the first page of Google for that term.
So now every time someone searches ‘Percolator Bongs’ into Google there’s a very good chance that they’ll click on my website and when they click on that they’ll click my affiliate links, buy a percolator bong and I get a commission. The best thing is once it’s all set up it’s all on autopilot. I can just move onto the next thing and rinse and repeat the whole process over and over again.
And obviously the more of these types of sites I build the more money I make. To date I’ve sent Grasscity over $250,000 in bong sales and that’s just one of the niches that I’m promoting. So there you go there really is some serious money to be made out there you’ve just got to know how to do it right.
