The Raw Power of Automated Income
Automation, and getting more money for doing less work while you are sleeping is what this online marketing game is really all about. A friend of mine told me about this little ‘trick’ he was pulling when I was in Atlanta. Basically he discovered a service that automatically creates articles and blog posts for you, set it up on autopilot, and just let it work for him.
What he told me was that he set this into action(which took about a days worth of work), forgot about it, and made an extra butt load of cash over the next six months. This is essentially what my friend told me:
“I just set this up to post automatically to my blog 5 times a day, I spun the hell out of a resource box, and then I forgot about it. About 3 months later the sales started rolling in, and this crazy little tool made me an extra $50,000 or so over the course of the six months that followed.”
Well, I don’t know about you, but that piqued my interest. As you can probably see from this blog, I write all of my own articles here. However, I am a huge fan of the concept behind Timothy Ferriss’s ‘4 Hour Workweek’ so I listened hard. If you haven’t read that book yet, it’s a great read that talks about the power of automation and outsourcing, so you can make more money with less work.
Most of you here that are following me know that I am a big promoter of the Empower Network. Keeping that in mind, a lot of you are probably wondering why I am always posting on this blog verses my Empower Network Viral Blogging System. Well, the answer is simple:
The difference is that I set up my Viral Blogging system to automatically do 10 posts a day for me. I spun the hell out of a resource box using a high quality article spinning tool(click here to see the spinner I use, and yes of course this is an affiliate link), and I set the whole thing on Autopilot. Occasionally, I use the article building tool to create a custom article, spend about 5 minutes editing it, and then post another article to the blog as well. It literally takes about 5 to 10 minutes to create a nice blog post, which eliminates the excuse people make sometimes:
“I don’t know what to blog about…”
Here is an article that I built the other day in about 5 minutes(Click Here to see the Article). All I did was create an article with this little tool, went back and put titles at the beginning of each idea, uploaded a picture, assigned tags and categories to it, put a couple of words in bold, wrote about a paragraph, and then I was done. If you surf around the recent posts on that blog you’ll notice that a lot of the articles that have been posted there aren’t quite as nice looking; those are the ones that are posting automatically without me doing anything at this point.
Then I plugged the rss feed into my Onlywire account for a few social media back-links, and count on ‘long tail keywords’ to work their magic over time. A lot of those posts will probably never get much traffic, but some of them will get traffic through random searches, and then the person that finds the post is on my Empower Network Blog which is optimized to get leads and sales.
That is why I recommend the Viral Blog to anyone that is starting to market online, because it takes a whooooooole lot of work and knowledge to set up a blog in a way that is optimized to turn traffic into leads and sales. It is much better to simply drive traffic to something that converts, verses trying to figure out 4,000 things at once.
Just to illustrate how awesome and fast this is, I just cut this video while I was writing this post, where I created a custom post live in just 15 minutes(keep in mind this is in addition to the ones I have posting automatically for me:
Here’s a link to that blog post that I just finished creating live(Click Here).
So is this going to make me an extra $50,000 over the next six months?
Beats me, but the way I look at it, if you shoot for the stars, you might hit the moon, but if you shoot for the sky, you might end up dragging your feet on the ground. This automatic blog posting service is only $297 per year, so if it even gets me one sale in the primary business that I promote that gets the ‘Whole Shebang’ it will pay for itself 6-10 times over.
…and if it makes me an extra $50,000 dollars, well, that is just gravy.
UPDATE: I tested this tool in several different ways, and found that the best way to use it is to bag the “Automatic Post 10x Per Day” strategy, and to create the articles in there manually(which takes seconds at the push of a button), and then spend about 5 minutes editing it.
This way you can change the title, put a few headlines in there, add some extra tags, etc. If you use the “Automatic Posting” strategy, I recommend 1 time per day, and then editing some or all of them after they have been set to post.
Another great use for it is to use it for content creation that you use to create “Link Wheels” in SEO. I’m not going to get into how to do that right now, but if you do SEO, you probably know what I am talking about.
Because of the nature of this software, it has a limited amount of people that can buy it. I don’t know for sure whether or not it will be available when you click on the button below to buy it. If it is, I recommend picking it up.
P.S. Seriously, this is a great tool for fast content creation. You can use the tricks I teach in my Free Blogging Bootcamp to pimp out your posts in minutes, and then make money by driving traffic to them.
