In my last post I talked about all the publishers using AdWords for “make money with Google” products scams got their accounts banned forever and they can never return to using AdWords again. As always in this world of ours there always seems to be a loophole or way to do what you’re not allowed to. This isn’t any different.
Can you get a new Google AdWords account after you have been banned?
Yes, you can get back to advertising through Google AdWords. If you are one of the naughty boys promoting biz opps (business opportunities) on Google then you’re a jackass. Well all know how Google loves rebills and you think they would let you use their name in a rebill bizopp? Now you guys know the answer.
I did some digging around and some jerk off is actually selling an ebook on how to get back to using Google AdWords. This is one of the dumbest things I have seen. All the info you need to get your AdWords account back can be found by searching online for free on Google, lol.
Note: I you do get back to using AdWords play by the rules cause Google don’t give 2 shits about anyone except themselves. You’re spending $20,000 a day with Google? They make $63,000,000 (63 million) per day, so they won’t miss your $20,000…
Now get back off your ass and make it happen!
While on vacation one of my intuitions came true. In affiliate marketing offers come and go, it’s the nature of the business. I usually try to stay clear of marketing offers that won’t last long just for the simple fact that I like to have long term income that I can rely on for years to come. These short terms niches can be very lucrative, some affiliate marketers make most of their money from short term niches such as diet fads and so on.
One of the more recent niches to hit the market was the “work from home ” categories. Is it a scam? Yes and no. These are called rebill products because every month the consumer is rebilled a certain amount ($50 or something), until they cancel. Many marketers promote these “make money online” products as free trials,they only pay the shipping (this is true). The consumer pays about $2 for shipping, and has 15 – 30 days to cancel. This is where it can get shady, because many consumers don’t read the fine, and don’t realize they will get charged monthly. They then get rebilled monthly for something like $5o until they cancel. This can easily add up when you are marketing these products, since each “sale” pays the marketer roughly $30-$40. If you get 10 – 20 sales in a day you have $300 – $600 U.S. In a month you could pull $9,000 to $18,000. It can easily add up to huge money.
Read The Fine Print!
Many people don’t read the fine print, or else it’s unlikely they would even buy the product. Many of these “work from home” products were promoting these offers as “Make Money With Google“, and state you can “make $5,000 per month posting links on Google”. Is it true? Yes you can earn $5,000 U.S. per month doing affiliate marketing which does include posting links (buying link ads on Google Ad Words).
Yes, you can make money with Google.com, I am living proof of it. Is it easy, not when you first start. Is it easy to become a mechanic over night? Is it easy to become a graphic artist over night? Is it easy to become a lawyer over night? If you want to “make it”, you need skills, smarts and determination. The reason these products are popular right now are because of one reason, the recession (or so called).
Anyways many people were running advertisements for these products on Google.com, using Google’s name to promote shady work from home ebooks that can work, but won’t work because most people want the “magic secret”. These affiliates marketers have now been banned from advertising from Google for promoting Google biz opps (business opportunities). I’m not too sure what the point of this blog post is. Oh I just remembered now. Most people want to be scammed because they are LAZY.
Diet products for instance shouldn’t even exist. Want to lose weight? Get off you f*cking ass you fat pig. No pill will be the magic solution for your weight problem. Want to make money, then dig in for the long haul, and get eady to make good money if you REALLY want it bad enough.
Who’s Right, Who’s Wrong?
Both parties are to blame. Lazy consumers who want quick and easy money and shady marketing practices that “trick” the consumer to think they will make $5,000 a month by next week. If you want to make money online, then email me and I will guide you in the right direction. I have bought a few ebooks, some great and some not so great but it’s the knowledge I did with ALL the books combined with determination to get me to where I am today. Focus on goals and get ready to learn….
Lately I have been down because like I mentioned my income has dropped because of Google making it harder and harder for affiliates to advertise on their system. I don’t want to go into the whole thing because in reality it’s one of the stupidest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life. Basically Google is trying to eliminate the “middle men” (affiliates), they basically want advertising business only from actual online business, not people promoting for the online business. Confusing? Yeah don’t bother worrying about it, ha ha.
I have been getting away from advertising with Google because they have drastically dropped the amount of traffic they are giving my affiliate sites. I have gone through hoops to follow their guidelines but they just push it way to far. They may control a huge amount of the internet traffic however there are many other places to advertise online and I am in the midst of testing these other sources. Why they are pushing away someone (me), who has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars monthly with them is crazy (especially since I truly do try to make them “happy”). Google will see once their revenues drop in the next quarter that they way treat affiliate marketers is horrible. Hopefully they will realize that this part of the customer base spends millions and millions of dollars with them monthly. In most cases affiliates spend more on promoting products than the actual product owners do. I have no clue why they are doing this, Yahoo and MSN don’t treat people nearly as harsh as Google. There is no compassion or human feeling from the biggest online ad agency.
What comes around goes around, let’s wait and see what happens.
I have found it hard to focus being in such a depressed state of mind. I am going back to my roots and have started watch “The Secret” once again, over and over. I point to “The Secret” as being my number one reason for helping me focus on what I actually want from my life, financially. I achieved every single goal that I wrote down, and some of those financial goals were HUGE.
I am now resetting my thinking to focus on what I want and not what I don’t want. That is the basic principle of the “law of attraction”. Controlling how you feel is one of the most important things that you will ever learn. It worked for me and now it will work again. I don’t want to ramble on and on about this. All I know is that it does work, and I am living proof. Even though I get into these depressed moods lately, I knew in the back of my mind about “law of attraction” I just forgot about it the last while. I am already changing that once again. I don’t want to be the victim anymore, so fuck that, it’s time to start make even more monies online.
Where have I been? Hmm, well I have been busy trying to get my online sales back up. When it rains it pours and this is what happened to me. First off one of the search engines I advertise on, seems to have changed their editorial guidelines and this caused me tons of grief. Like most online companies I deal with they change rules and don’t even tell you about it at all. One day you’re getting tons of traffic to your affiliate offers and the next day NOTHING. This is frustrating to say the least and has pissed me off more times than I even want to remember. Going from $1,000s per day in sales to %10-20% of that can be tough to take. Luckily for me I am smarter than I usually look and I figure ways out of these type of messes.
I am in the process of finding other products to promote to bring my sales back up. Affiliate marketing is either making you ton of cash or it’s dries up, then you need to reinvent yourself and move forward and look at new things to promote. It’s definitely not as easy as you think. You need tough skin, ambition, perseverance and a “I don’t give a sh*t” attitude.
That’s the reason I haven’t been on my blog, it’s a waste of time when I could be making money. That is how I feel, so when the sh*t hits the fan I’m working hard to bring it back up. And luckily I have enough saved up to last me 3 lifetimes. That being said it always sucks when you have the carpet pulled underneath you, it drives me nuts every single time. ARGH!!
I went through all the emotions that I usually do when this happens. I get in a state of denial, shock, angry, depression and then frantic. When I am frantic I start working like a mad man to get things going back up. That’s where I am and have been for the last few days. I hate being where I perceive the “bottom” to be. It’s not as bad as I make it out to be, but for me personally I don’t like where I am so I do whatever it takes to get “back up”.
Working online is a constant battle to get traffic and keep traffic coming. I know for most of you guys it doesn’t make much sense, but let’s put it this way. Making money online is harder than you think, even if the traffic is flowing in. Just because it involves a computer many people perceive it to be “easy money”, far, far from it. This is the hardest I have ever worked in my life, by far.
If I learned one thing this time that I already kinda knew is that things can change from one day to another so you better make sure you’re covered when the well dries up. Having everything in one basket is the biggest mistake that you can make when you work for yourself. Diversification is the key to staying afloat in the “tough times”.
Obviously I love what i do, but it is hard work and can be very emotional to say the least. The emotional ups and downs, can get to you that’s for damn sure. I know I will get back up, because I have been through these type of scenarios (many times) before in the last 6 years and I ALWAYS come out better than before. I come out stronger and smarter but it still SUCKS…..
note: This is not because of the bad economic conditions of the USA or Canada. This is simply due to search engines changing their rules on what products they will allow advertising for. Enough on that.
Enough for now, back to work….
After venting about my problems in my last post, today I feel a renewed sense of energy today. For those who know me, they know I can bitch and whine, then I just get back into it. For some reason I feel great today, even with the recent pitfalls. But if you can’t get back up when life punches you in the face you’re not much of a man if you ask me. Having pitfalls makes me stronger. Every time something like this happens to me, I get back stronger and make even more money. Maybe that is why I am soo excited? I guess that ‘s the reason I feel revived, because I know I am going to make even more money very soon. It’s a weird cycle in my life, when sh*t happens it ALWAYS works out for the better. It’s strange but oh so true scenario in my life.
Maybe it’s just the way I view life, but things always get better for me after they dip. So let’s get this day started and see how great it will be… And if you’re the kind of person to look at the dark side of life, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. When you are down and out, how can you possibly move forward? I will tell, YOU CAN’T! Cry for an hour then work hard after that. Get your spirit back and run with the bulls. Don’t be a wimp, have balls and get it going!
If you’re life is hard, give it the middle finger and tell yourself you can and will succeed. You have no choice but to succeed, it’s you life and you need to control it the way you want it to turn out. Think of your life as a school bus and you are the driver. You need to control it, speed up when it’s needed and put the brakes when you have to. If you need to make detour to get to where you are going, then do it. You are in control of your life, so make damn sure you like the view, if not then change the course of your life.
You have only one life, so live it the way you want to ever single day of it.
