6.8 Transcript Below


One more quick video to tie things off. Even though I’ve probably emphasized these things, I want to, again, call your attention directly to them.

So a lot of you are going to be asking: “when do rankings come?”

As we’ve talked about when you get rankings, you get traffic. When you get traffic, if you’ve picked a good niche, you’ve picked good keywords according to the training, you should be able to start making money by offering up affiliate offers and putting affiliate links in your content and stuff like that.

So you may be asking yourself: “when do the rankings come?” Alright, that’s what this video is all about.

So as I discussed, it depends on a lot of different “moving parts”. That’s why you just can’t say: “Oh! It takes 6 months to see success in this industry.” You have to give kind of a range based on averages. Maybe for some people it’ll take 4-6 months, for others it’ll take 18 of the same amount of effort and the same amount of work and doing the same amount of quality work. It just… they could be in totally different niches and one have a lot more competition than the other. It really just depends.

So the only thing I can say with complete certainty is if you do the things that I’ve emphasized over and over again: pick good keywords according to the training, optimize on-page SEO (the elements we talked about in this section – the most important ones), and you make really high-quality content and focus on putting value into your audience member’s lives more than anything else, that is going to get you results much faster than someone that wasn’t doing any of those things. If someone isn’t doing one of those three things and your doing it, you’re going to see results much faster than them.

So I cant overemphasize, pay attention to those three things. And as long as you keep doing it, you will see results. Even Google themselves have said publicly, if you focus on content and you keep putting out really high-quality content, it doesn’t matter what industry you’re in, it doesn’t matter what the competition is, eventually you will get picked up and start seeing rankings. They’re algorithms are designed to do that. It just takes longer in some industries than others because sometimes the competition is just so, so, so stout.

Beyond that, pumping out more content without sacrificing what I just mentioned above (one of those three elements) and other promotional methods that we’re going to talk about in the next section.

And I know a lot of you maybe glaring at your computer screen and going: “but how long does it take?”.

And as I’ve mentioned, I think it was in the third… maybe the second section… there’s really no way to answer that question. I would say approximately a good average, if you’re posting at least 2 to 3 times a week, you should start seeing results within the first 8-12 months. Unless you’re in a really high competition niche.

But even with that, if you’re picking good keywords like the training teaches here and you’re sticking with it, you’re not ever sacrificing quality and you’re focusing on doing those three things well, within 8-12 months you should start seeing some really serious

And then you can start shifting just some of the things that are more about how good your website looks and how well your website is converting, building an e-mail list, and a lot of those things that people obsess over in the first 3 months. And as a result, they put a bunch of time into things that just don’t matter at that stage because they don’t have traffic anyways. And then they end up overwhelmed and washing out and giving up.

So focus on these three things and that’s enough, okay? And if you want to mix in some extra promotional methods, we’ll talk about that in the next section because there are a lot of options. But if you want to keep it simple and you recognize that if you keep it simple, you’re more likely to succeed. Every little element you add that extends beyond the simplest form is going to increase your chances of getting overwhelmed and giving up. It’s really important you recognize that.

You may be thinking to yourself: “oh, I can do it. I can take on all these different things”, we know that’s not the case. Us humans, we suck at multitasking. We’re finding more and more and more data showing that in the studies that are looking into how our brains work and how they work best.

And the less you complicate things, at least until you learn them really well, the more likely you are to succeed. So I recommend at least practicing this for the next several weeks. Getting really good at it and kind of falling into a groove before mixing in other promotional methods.

But if you want to ignore that advice, and you say: “No, no. I want more results faster. I know I can take it.”, or you already know a lot of this and you want to stack on top and kind of take your internet marketing to the next level. Or if you have been doing this now, you followed this training, you’re starting to see results, you’re like: “Alright! I’m ready I’m ready to do the next thing, I’m ready to add to this, I’m ready to do more and take it to a next level.” – next section we’ll talk about some extra promotional methods that I think are going to really help you do that.

But you know, generally speaking… how long does it take? On average I’d say about 8-12 months, if you’re posting 2 to 3 really high-quality articles per week. Again, factoring in all of the other training. Some people may see results in 5 or 6. I’ve seen people that within 6 to 7 months were making $2,000 or $3,000 a month. That’s really rare, really rare – very exceptional results but it’s happened. And then I’ve seen people that put in that much effort and they get to month 12 and they’re like: “where’s my traffic? where’s my traffic?”. I’ve been there myself. Just stick with it, keep working the process, it may take 18 months for your niche instead. It just… it really depends, okay? But as long as you’re following the training and you stick with it, you will see results. It’s only a matter of time.

So, okay. Hopefully that gives you as concrete of an answer that is honestly possible. I could say something that wasn’t truthful, like so many other product publishers do out there, but I just don’t have anything to sell you. I want to set you up for success. I want you to change your life through an internet marketing business the way I was able to change mine. Best way I can do that is to be honest with you, and that’s just the honest truth. Okay?

So, as always. If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the Facebook group, it’s free for registered members.

That wraps up section 6, right? Yeah, section 6… I don’t even know where we are anymore.

We’ll get into section 7 here pretty soon and I look forward to seeing you there. And we’re getting pretty close to finishing the core content, that is everything you need to know to… actually, right now there’s everything you need to know to build a profitable internet marketing business. But I want to build on that a little bit and give you some options in case this just isn’t quite enough. And also kind of talk to you really clearly about what the next steps are after you start getting traffic and how to build on the business, how to start making more money, et cetera.

So, with all that being said, I will see you in section 7, alright? Talk to you then.
