He shares his story and lays out exactly how the Video Marketer software can be used to distribute your video across multiple video sharing platforms for more exposure and more income.

Mike Koenigs Interview

Episode 21: Mike Koenigs of InstantCustomer, TrafficGeyser, Main St Marketing and more! [AUDIO ONLY]

I have been looking to interview Mike Koenigs for a while now. I originally got to know a lot about him after researching and using the Traffic Geyser video sharing software. This software makes it really easy to distribute your video content to multiple video sharing platforms. It really saves me a lot of time when it comes to distributing my video. Since the time I originally signed up, many more modules have been added to help get more traffic to your websites and increase distribution of different types of content. Yep, still works great today, even after all the google algorithm updates.

Since the time he put out Traffic Geyser, he has come up with numerous other marketing products, software programs and training systems. I could easily write a few thousand words on all of his different products, but I suggest you visit his website and find out all the details for yourself. I especially like his products page where you can find out all the details. He is a best selling author, voted “Marketer of the Year” in 2009 and a recent cancer fighter and survivor. He is also an electric car enthusiast and has owned one of the original Tesla Roadsters. I am still waiting to get a ride and experience the ‘Tesla Smile’!

Instant Customer is an automated “cross-channel” marketing platform that captures leads with voice recognition, mobile, online and offline systems. For over 20 years, Mike has worked with Sony Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, 3M, General Mills, Dominos Pizza, BMW, Ralston and Mazda.

Mike’s companies have produced eight consecutive online product launches with the largest grossing over $9.1 million dollars. He also generated over $3.1 million dollars in sales during a “direct to camera” live webcast.

Entrepreneur on Fire - John Lee Dumas

Episode 19: Interview with John Lee Dumas of Entreprenuer on Fire [AUDIO ONLY]


We lit the place on fire!

John Dumas - Entrepreneur on FireIn this interview with John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire we find out the motivating factor that took John Dumas from being a Commercial Real Estate broker to a full time podcaster.

With well over 250 episodes under his belt, John has been providing a daily podcast show where he interviews entrepreneurs to find out about their journey, sharing their early failures, AHA moments and providing insights about the techniques that are working for them right now. I really enjoy the five question ‘Lightning Round’ at the end of the show where we learn specific techniques the entrepreneurs have used and that encourage fans and listeners to take action.

John has interviewed over 250 successful and inspiring entrepreneurs since September of 2012, including entrepreneurs Seth Godin, Pat Flynn, Gary Vaynerchuck, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferris and more.

One question has always been racking my brain and I finally got to ask it. It is about all those GoToMeeting and Audacity offers that podcasters frequently use. I don’t think it takes away from his show in any way, but I thought he could make more money by offering other affiliate products and services instead of those popular programs that usually pay around 10-15% per sale. His answer surprised me and I am sure it is going to surprise you as well!!! He is rockin!

I hope you enjoy the vidcast and take action today by signing up to my newsletter so you can get notified of new interviews, step-by-step tutorials and special offers available through How To Earn Money TV.

Episode 10 - Earn Money Online - Interview with Rob Merlino the HotDogMan

Episode 15: Interview with the HotDogMan

At the most recent Affiliate Summit Convention in Las Vegas, I was interviewed by the HotDogMan. He was conducting interviews with people and wanting to know if they put ketchup on their hot dogs. I was intrigued that this guy was just walking around the show floor with a video camera and tripod and interviewing tons of famous people as well as other show attendees right there in the middle of the convention.

Some of the people he popped the question to was Bruce Clay, DK, Erick Thomas, Jim Kukral, John Chow, Jon Spoelstra, Kirk Taylor, Matthew Lesko, Missy Ward, Shawn Collins, Shoe Money, Tricia Meyer, Wade Tonkin and many others.

You can watch his video from Affiliate Summit Below

He was having a great time and you could tell that he was very passionate about what he was doing. But I didn’t know why he was there. I just had to know his story and find out what he was up to so I asked him to do an interview with me.

He told me about his exiting life of running a hot dog truck business but unfortunately was unable to continue due to health issues and was forced to sell his business.

He started a blog called and where he blogged about the business and started making money from selling his information and placing affiliate links to related products and services on his website.

He also created a website dedicated about how to start a hot dog business at What a great idea!

It is a really amazing story and he has a lot going on. I can only imagine he will get a cable tv show soon. He was very laid back and it was nice to hang out with him during the conference.

He is also one lucky man and took home a sizable winning just prior to leaving the convention! What a great trip.

Make sure to check out his websites, they are inspiring and really gives you an idea of what you can do when blogging and making money online by following your passions.

Episode 4a - Make Money Online

Episode 12: My Biggest Income Stream Right Now


I have been creating income streams online for a long time now, so I have built up numrous income streams over the years.  Some bring in only a few hundred a month while others bring in thousands.  In this episode I talk about one of my largest income streams right now

My Income Streams

I started a blog about 5 years ago where I blog about industry news and topics related to real estate appraisers.  The blog is located at and this is one of my best ones right now. This is also one of the first blogs where I really started from scratch and I really took my time to build it out. I did not know which direction I was going to take it in the beginning and of course I started off with hard selling.  Eventually I decided to work my personality in to the blog and focused on delivering good content.  The change really increased the sales on my blog and it has become a huge success, especially over the past couple of years.

If you are an expert in an area or have a lot of knowledge about a certain topic, there is almost always a way to montetize it.  You can offer affiliate programs or create a directory of services, products and providers to make it easy to locate the information in your area of expertise.

That is essentially what I did with and it has provided a great income over the past 3-4 years.  Although it is no longer my greatest income stream, it did lead me in the direction to produce my largest income stream yet!  I will be providing more on that ‘new business’ later.

I hope you enjoy this episode!

Jeremy Shoemoney Shoemaker Interview - Affiliate Summit West 2012

Episode 9: Interview with Jeremy Shoemaker

You are going to love this interview. I had the opportunity at the recent Affiliate Summit West 2012 convention to interview Jeremy ‘Shoemoney’ Shoemaker. One of the top affiliate marketers in our industry and also one of the most popular affiliate marketers. He has been in the game for over 10 years and sharing his experiences with others for over 9 years now.

I started following him from the very beginning, checking out his posts on the message boards, listening to his podcasts on webmaster radio and checking his blog frequently. Back then he was one of the first companies to show up when you were searching using the terms ‘make money online’. The famous photo of his historic google check for $132K was all over the internet and he was a great starting point when wanting to learn more about the industry and how to earn money online.

Shoemoney explains what got him in to the industry, how he started making money online and why he decided to provide the closing keynote at the Affiliate Summit West convention. Shoemoney is retiring?! You will have to watch this video or listen to the podcast to find out if Jeremy Shoemaker is deciding to retire from the industry!

More interviews to come! Unfortunately I was plagued with a very poor internet connection and was having system problems when I was out in Las Vegas, but I was able to record a few other interviews while I was there.

ASW13 - Affiliate Summit

Episode 8: Affiliate Summit 2013. On my way to Vegas!

If you have ever thought about making money from home on the internet, the Affiliate Summit convenions are a great way to learn about the industry and to network with others currently making money online.

I thought I would make a little podcast about the upcoming Affiliate Summit West convention in Las Vegas.  This is the 2nd time I have gone and hope they will have it in Los Angeles or San Diego next year!!! I am getting a little tired of Vegas!  Seems like everyone has their conventions out there.

Anyways, there is a ton of great information you can learn about affiliate marketing and how to make money blogging, vlogging, creating niche websites and numerous partnership opportunities.  I also attend a lot of mastermind meetups and private sessions that are more on the advanced levels and held outside of the normal convention.

If you would like to view the Affiliate Summit Show Agenda, visit:

If anyone else is going, just send me an email and maybe we can meet up while you are there! There are a ton of parties going on as well.

Episode 3a - Make Money Online

Episode 7: Set Some Goals and Chunk Em Down

Before you get started in your Quest to Make Money Online – Set Some Goals!

When you are getting started, I really suggest getting organized, set aside some work space and start working on your goals and to-do list.  This sounds pretty simple, but a lot of people skip this whole step because they just want to get started.  That is a bad plan.  That is no plan at all.

Set goals to succeed

Being an entrepreneur it is sometimes difficult to focus and things just never get done.  We are easily distracted and people and shiny-objects are always competing to take our attention away at the task on hand.

When I start on a new project, I usually start with some main goals with dates for when I want to get the goals completed.  I then move on to creating a to-do list of tasks from the primary list of goals.  But I break my to-do list into a series of very small tasks, some that only take a few minutes to complete.  This is called chunking.

Chunking will help you complete your tasks.

For a quick example, lets imagine that I wanted to create a new blog on meteorite hunting.  My primary goal would be to complete this task in 2 months.  I am giving myself extra time because not only do I want the project to be 100% complete, but I also am going to do some outsourcing.  I might set additional goals at this time to get a certain number of people signed up to my opt-in newsletter or maybe make some sales, but they would all take place after the first goal.

To complete the first task I could easily create a quick to do list:

  1. buy domain name
  2. build website
  3. get articles written
  4. create free product for newsletter opt-in
  5. add some affiliate links

I can use some mind-mapping software like MindMeister (You can get it for free at, or I can start clunking the tasks down in to much more detailed steps right from the beginning.  This way I won’t get confused on what I need to do next.

So in the first task: buy domain name

  • I would break this down in to the following steps:
  • Keyword research for high traffic
  • search for available domain names
  • search expired domain names
  • check pee-owned domain names
  • register or buy domain name

When you have everything broken down, at least the initial tasks, GET STARTED!

The key to making money online is to GET STARTED!

Episode 2a - Make Money Online

Episode 3: Two Methods I Use to Earn Money Online

In this episode I show you two simple techniques I have used to make money online.

On to episode 3 and I am really excited!  If you don’t have any experience making money online, then this is a great way to start.  One of the methods doesn’t even require you buying a website and setting up a blog!  Either way, you can follow these simple techniques to start making money online now.

Two Simple Techniques to earn money online

These are some easy to follow techniques that will help you to make enough extra money to possibly get some web hosting or buy some excellent keyword research sofware like Market Samurai .  I really like Market Samurai because it helps set you above your competition by helping you find the right keywords and domain name to target.

Selling Stuff on eBay and writing Product Reviews

You might not believe it, but there is still a lot of people making a living off of ebay just by selling one product.  Of course until you find that one product, you might have to try a number of products to sell or you can just clear out all the old stuff you no longer use to make a little extra spending money. On the other hand if you want to jump right in to affiliate marketing, writing reviews of Amazon products has always been really popular and it is even easier to learn how to do it these days with training materials and membership sites at your disposal.

Amazonian Profit Plan

A while back I was listening to a podcast called Coffee Talk with James Martel, and he was interviewing Paula and Wanda about writing reviews for Amazon products. They went in to detail on how they start with doing research on a niche, picking products and write reviews in groups of five.

You want to focus all your time and energy on only those five and they have incredible results.  Of course this is not all they do and they wrote a book on how to make money with Amazon. Of course I instantly purchased the book: The Amazonian Profit Plan. It’s filled with tons of great information that you can really learn a lot from. One tip that they gave in their interview is that they stick to products that sell between $300 to $500 to maximize your return.

Amazon is not the only network out there selling products, but Amazon is probably the most reputable and well known network on the internet.  They also offer almost everything you can think of, so it is easy to find products and accessories to increase your sales.  They are a very trusted merchant that people tend to do a lot of shopping on Amazon.  I know I do!

If you really want to get started, go get a domain name at hosting at a good company like Blue Host, install a WordPress blog and start building your review site.  You are never going to learn all the steps just by reading, sometimes you just have to dive in!  Take ACTION!  You can get the book on writing amazon product reviews at

Sell Some Stuff on Ebay

So you want to make some money today?  Ebay is a great way to do it.  It might actually take 3-7 days based on your auction length, but it is a great way to get started making money online. You will never forget the first dollar you make online, and it will get you thirsty for more!

Most people have a lot of extra stuff laying around – stuff they have not used for years.  I am sure you have a bunch of extra things that are of value to others that you really don’t need anymore.  Go through your stuff and make a big pile, maybe even fill an entire room and start taking photos, write down information and start searching for those products in google and ebay.  You will be surprised by how much some of your extra crap is worth!  Especially when you add it all up.  Not only will you be making some extra cash that you didn’t have, but you will be cleaning out your house at the same time.

If you are looking to make some good money on eBay, you might try looking through your OLD stuff: electronics, old games, baseball cards and old things you have collected in the past. Collectibles are always good because people are always looking to buy that stuff on ebay.  The older the better.

Anyone Can Earn Money Selling on Ebay

Mark Ostrovsky, author of the affiliate marketing bible, Get Rich Click,  mentioned that anyone can make good money on ebay by focusing on finding products from local businesses that other people throughout the country or world would want to purchase.   These can be unique items that are only available in your area.  Take a picture of the item and post an auction to see how well it sells, then go out and buy it when you have sold a product.

If you end up selling a lot of an item at that point you can work out bulk deals or special deals from the supplier to increase your profits.

Some places where you can find good products to sell on eBay

  • Local businesses selling unique local products
  • Thrift Stores
  • Big Lots
  • Garage Sales
  • Swap Meets
  • Your Garage!

I recently found a book online that focusus on becoming an eBay PowerSeller and how to make the big bucks with eBay.

EBay Fortune

When I got started selling on eBay, nobody was selling inormation like this.   Tom Barnes, an eBay PowerSeller for a long time now has published an ebook on how to sell and make money using eBay.  He gives his tips and tricks to getting a lot of views, when the best time to post an auction, the duration and many unique tips to having a better auction.

  • Tips for selling on eBay
  • Get your 10 positive feedback points asap
  • Become a Trusted Seller
  • Check the ‘Wanted Now’ section
  • Use eBay stores for upsells

I have been selling stuff through ebay forever and never came across the types of tips and techniques that Tom Barnes offers in his book.  I suggest if you are even considering selling on eBay that you get his book.  You can find it at

You are going to hear it from me time and time again, the fastest way to start earning money online is by starting today – like RIGHT NOW.  Check out these eBooks if either topic interests you, you might even get rid of some stuff that you have felt guilty about throwing away or learn how to create a blog by doing reviews on Amazon products.

Until next time – just do it!

Episode 1 - Make Money Online

Episode 1: Earn Money Online – The Introduction

Let me tell you why I teach others how to Earn Money Online.

Howdy! I’m Bryan Knowlton with In Episode 1, I’m going to tell you a bit about my background and how I’ve made money online. I’ll tell you how long I‘ve been working at this and show you all of the various steps to take so that you can create your own income online.

When I came to the decision to teach how to make money online, I decided to reveal 100% of my techniques to let you understand what you need to do to earn money online. I will take you step-by-step, from beginning to end, through the many ways to make money online.

But I can’t do all the work for you.You will have to JUST DO IT to get started in one or more of the ways I’ve had experience making some good money online.

There is no magic. There may be a lot of ‘get rich quick’ schemes around, but I don’t believe a single one will make you rich. You might get lucky and make some cash fairly quickly, but unless you continue building on your success, most likely you are not going to get rich.

Are you willing to work hard? Do you have the will to succeed? Are you going to do whatever it takes to earn money online?

To make money online you have to be dedicated and you have to work. You won’t be sitting on the couch, channel surfing and cashing checks all day long. Personally, I always have the greatest success when I am under pressure. If you too are under pressure and want to make some serious changes for your future, now is a great time for you to learn how to earn money online.

Do you have something to offer that will solve a problem or create value?

Maybe you have some kind of skill or knowledge you could share with people and sell to them?

One of the great things about having passive income is that it gives you the ability to do whatever you want, when you want to.

A little about me

I’ve been self-employed for about 20 years. Since then, I’ve been able to take a vacation, do something with my kids, and visit my family when I wanted, not when an employer allowed me. Not reporting to a boss and setting my own hours has been great, but it involves a lot of work.

You won’t be able to do this overnight so that you’re making the big bucks tomorrow. Instead, I’ll teach you the realistic ways to make money online. At any moment I have about five to seven different streams of income coming in. I could be at the beach or on vacation and no matter what, that money is still coming in on a monthly basis.

Real Estate Appraiser and Internet Marketer
I’m a real estate appraiser, so in addition to providing appraisal services to individuals and banks, I also market internet marketing advice and tips to other appraisers.

Almost every business out there, including home-based businesses, do not know how to market their services to get business online. This fact makes if fairly easy to become a local search expert.

If you know a few things about the Internet, it really doesn’t take too much to become a local search marketer. You could help businesses with building a web site, building an online advertising campaign, handling social marketing and creating the exposure they need.

Just imagine how business competition works. If you have a carpeting business, and you’re showing up at the very top of the page on Google, you’re going to be busy and making a very good income. You’re also going to be able to pick and choose what type of carpet installation jobs you want to do. If you are number 10 on Google you will still be getting some business off the Internet, but it is nothing like the top position. You can really earn money online by helping businesses obtain the #1 position in your area.

When you help someone in your area get the No. 1 position on Google, they will pay you a lot of money. There are a lot of different things like that in internet marketing. Maybe your own business or your current employer’s could use this knowledge? I really love local marketing, so I will be covering the topic in some upcoming shows and interviews, but this is just one small area of making money online.

Create Information Products
You can also create, and market, an information product. I produced a directory of companies that order appraisals from appraisers. When I came up with this idea, I needed appraisal work badly so I started talking with other appraisers, researched on the internet, made lots of phone calls and created my own directory. Appraisers can spend a lot of valuable time searching down this information themselves, or they can buy my information product.

I sell it now for $100.00 a copy. This one information product alone brings me over $3,000.00 to $4,000.00 a month. You can create something like that. There are many different ways to earn money online by creating value. My directory gives tremendous value to appraisers, the proof being that I have not been asked for a single refund in over 5 years of selling the directory online.

Why Watch How to Earn Money?
If you choose to follow my shows, you’re going to learn what’s involved in earning money online. I know how it can be, you need to make money online… NOW, so I’ll also show you quick ways to make money online.

Keep in mind, most of the stuff I will be teaching is for the long term. I’m still bringing in very good affiliate sales on products I’ve been marketing for over 15 years!!! I still smile when every check comes in.

I will take you through, step-by-step, tell you what tools and software will help you make money online quicker. I’m not one of those teachers that will give you a bunch of good information then leave you hanging for more, only to discover that you have to pay an additional $99.95, $499.95 or $9,999.00 to get the rest of the information. This has happened to me before and it’s very discouraging. There are a lot of good people sharing their information for free, and I hope to interview each and every one of them. But, you ask, why do they do it for free?

They can do it for free because there are products and services that you must use to make money online. For example, you need website hosting. I tell people to get their hosting at because they have the best service and they are very responsive to my needs. If that wasn’t enough, they are also very inexpensive and have very fast servers. When someone follows my affiliate link to them, I get a small commission.

It’s the same with Market Samurai, a product I love and use almost daily. Why waste four hours researching a few keywords when you can do it in twenty minutes with Market Samurai instead? So it’s the same with this product, if you buy it through my affiliate link I get a small commission. It is a win-win situation. You get great hosting and learn how to do keyword research, and I get some money in return to cover my hosting, bandwidth and hopefully put a few bucks in my pocket.

This is how and why we are able to give away all of our information for free. And there are so many niches out there, we won’t step on each others toes and take away each other’s commissions. 100% disclosure. That is what I am about.

You Want to Earn Money Online – Are You Better Than The Rest?

Just Get Started
That’s all it takes. You can get hung up on a domain name. You can get hung up with hosting questions. You don’t know how to build a web site. Where do you start? There are a ton of questions.

I’m going to help you with that. Just get any domain name for now.
You can always change it later – it’s not going to kill you or your web site.

If you have a chance to speak with any successful entrepreneur, they will likely speak of of failures they’ve had along the way. Chances are you’re probably not going to hit it off your first shot either. I did really well on my first shot – extremely well – but when the dot-com bubble burst, so did my internet business.

So, if you are going to fail anyway, it is better to fail fast. The quicker you fail, the quicker you can move on to your next project or product .

The key here is to just get started. You need to get over those little rough stops along the way because it is going to happen no matter what. You are going to want to know when to let go of something that is just not working. You’ll want to know when to start over. You want to focus. I’ve failed many times when I was trying to earn money online, and eventually figured out what works and what doesn’t.

Selling on the Internet – Before the World Wide Web
There are many different strategies for failure and success, so fail fast. I’ve been doing this for a little over 20 years, since the early 90′s. I started selling on Usenet, which came before the World Wide Web (www.). I was selling services and products on Usenet through my college account. I was receiving so many checks by mail, I eventually got an 800 number and a credit card processor.

I’ve been doing this for a long time and if I would have retained more focus and diversified better, I would be a multimillionaire by now. Sure, I have made over a million on the Internet…spread out over the past 20 years. It’s not a great success, but I have made a very good living. I’ve been able to buy multiple houses, new cars, get married, have kids and support my wife working at home– all that good stuff through the power of the internet. It’s been just amazing.

Upcoming Videos on how to earn money online
In the next couple of shows I am going to start with the basics. This will be for the real beginners. It is going to be step-by-step, so I urge you to follow along if you’re watching this on your computer or TV. If you have signed up for my newsletter, what you’ll get when I’m done with a new show is the transcription of the show and multiple videos that you can watch in different formats. This will give you the ability to pause and really follow along. What you should do is follow along and just do it. Do not let the videos pile up.

If you think you have a really good idea and should just skip ahead…don’t. Start with show number one and just follow them through. When you want to earn money online, you might want to rush and skip steps. You really need a complete foundation to follow through.

You’ll get a web site up in no time at all. You’ll start marketing and earning money online. It is really not that difficult, but without all of the information, and following all of the steps, it could be very difficult to get started earning money online. So, in the upcoming episodes I’ll be teaching:

  • How to set up a website (quickly)
  • How to use the proper plug-ins
  • How to find a good host (like BlueHost)
  • How to format your pages and posts
  • How to get back-links

I’m going to cover it all! There’s a lot of information coming forth. In each show I am also going to give you assignments. For example, at the end of the show on website building I am going to tell you to download some basic themes. I’ll also show you other themes that you could use that might be better geared towards your type of business.

There are some really good local business themes out there that are built for mobile (phone), and are optimized for the search engines and local searches – taking advantage of geo data. The “local marketing” area is huge right now. Many are jumping on the bandwagon. I don’t see how a single local business could live without it. It’s just not smart to have a local business without having a local search presence. You could be the o
