The Best Keyword Research Tool

By now you know how much I love using Market Samurai for conducting keyword research.

You will be doing keyword research prior to:

  • determining a niche market
  • buying a domain name
  • targeting keywords
  • making a blog post
  • identifying top keywords
  • competitive research

You don’t HAVE to use Market Samurai, but it will help you to identify the best keywords to target way easier than using the google external keyword tool.

The main difference is that you can identify hidden opportunities in niche markets.  You also do not want to target the most competitive keywords as the chances of you ever ranking for those terms is pretty small.  It would be a waste of time, energy and resources to target a keyword or keyword phrase you will never be able to rank for.  Maybe the top 10 positions are already taken by Amazon, Ebay, or other large and established companies.  The chances of beating them out is fairly small.

But there are hundreds of thousands of opportunities to target keywords that might have less traffic, but will be easy to rank for.  You can target these related keywords and keyword phrases to bring in the traffic.

This short video will tell you more about Market Samurai Keyword Research Tool and you can also watch my tutorial: Episode 4: Keyword Research Tutorial  for more information.

Pat Flynn : Niche Site Duel

Pat Flynn, Blogger and Podcaster over at Smart Passive income recently decided to do an investigation to determine why there was a sudden drop in his traffic and what would be needed to solve the issue.

It reminded me of the importance of checking your statistics frequently and at the same time not obsessing over them.  When you are building your first website, you are going to want to keep track of your traffic and make changes that will increase your traffic and fix errors that resulted in your website getting less traffic.

What I like to do is to keep a log of the changes I make to a website from the day that I post it live.  You should have a spreadsheet where you can list the changes you have made, when you have made your submissions to the search engines and anything else you think will affect traffic and income.

When launching a new website, you really need to keep a close eye on all the changes that you make.  But it is very important to check the statistics every few weeks to determine if there are some immediate fixes needed or potential problems.

With all the changes the search engines are making to their search algorythms, it is good to keep a close eye on stats, some things you should set up from the beginning are:

1. rank tracking for your primary keywords – apps are available for this.  You can also use Market Samurai.

2. website monitoring to let you know if your website is hacked or goes down – Internet Seer will monitor one for you

3. monitor your traffic frequently with google analytics

You can also set up flags to let you know when there are bursts of traffic or an immediate slow down in traffic.  There is a lot you can do to monitor your sales, you can even text yourself with every sale you make by creating filters in google that will forward to your cell phone so you can put a ‘cha-ching’ ring tone to the SMS.  That always makes it fun to know you are making sales throughout the day!

Pat really dives in to the analysis of his website and explains the changes and reasons for why there was a decrease of income.  I would suggest checking this post to get ideas for when this happens to you in the future.  From time to time changes are needed.  I saw my income drop 75% over a 3 month period back in 2001.  Unfortunately there wasn’t much I could do to save it, but I sure did learn a lot of lesson throughout the ordeal.  Traffic is always going to go up and down and sales along with it.  It is a good idea to learn what you can do to investigate and what is needed to fix these types of problems.

Pat also gives some great insight on increasing earnings that you can apply to any niche website : http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/niche-site-duel-investigating-a-sudden-drop-in-earnings/

How To Earn Money TV



Episode 1 - Make Money Online

Episode 1: How To Earn Money Online – The Introduction

In this episode, I’ll explain my background and describe what to expect from upcoming shows. With my step-by-step video tutorials I will show you how to make money online.


Looking for the magic bullet?  There is no magic bullet.

Howdy! I’m Bryan Knowlton with howtoearnmoney.tv. 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 http://mybluehosting.com 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
