Best Of 2007 On CashTactics

I went thru my archives and hand picked some posts I thought were pretty good before we head into the New Year. Enjoy!

Back In August I gave some general tips over making money with P2P Networks and Torrents. Torrents are still alive and kicking and I have not really spoken of them since this last post. I really should but the fact of the matter is that this method is very petty and so very easy to do. However, I bet 99% of the people who read this post probably didn’t even try it or quickly gave up on it. Let’s take a look at just one program I promoted with these petty torrent methods.

Here are payments for the last 6 months. For a method so easy I sure seen a lot of bitching from people who said “it’s too much work”.  Here’s what happens when you dedicate yourself to a project for a couple of hours a week no matter how petty, simple and boring it is.

6 months

Also in August, I wrote a free report detailing how I go about getting high rankings for articles. I normally do not write my own articles but I do however use the methods described because it seems nobody can get it right even with a guide. I guess that just goes to show that what works for someone, may not necessarily work for another. However, the guide is free and it’s a great read….(IMO). :)

In September I also introduced a way to advertise your blog cheaply utilizing Stumbleupon. I have tested this out a few times and it seems to work well. When I say that, what I really mean is that as cheap as it is, you get back about the same return. However, it’s a great traffic building method and I am sure the right type of blog will make the difference.

Also in September I touched a bit on using Google Groups. Both Google and Yahoo Groups are goldmines, and I bet since I haven’t talked about them recently that most people don’t utilize these services. This is a huge mistake. Did you know that if you have a Yahoo Group you can sign up for Article Marketer and have yourself to be put in their distribution queue? Or how about having your own article directory and being in their submission queue? Who cares if it’s duplicate content, your going to have so much of it, your not going to be able to avoid NOT getting traffic. Spamming the groups is always fun for quick cash too. Who does that though? The power is in having your own group.

In October I finally revealed what led me to believe I could work fulltime online. It seems the post touched a few nerves. That was really the point. If a dumb redneck from Kansas can make half a million dollars online in his first full year exclusively online, so can you.

I also did my 5 day case study with Copeac. If you haven’t signed up with Copeac, then you really need to. They are a great network and I haven’t had any problems with them so far. However, I am only running two of their offers on their network and these offers are on one of my lower trafficked websites. However, I have squeezed a little over $1,400.00 just by placing a couple of banners on a site.


It was during this same month that I also revealed some stats on one of my “baby” sites. Say what you will about such sites, but someone has to sell the dream. I revealed a net profit of over $159,000.00 that this site has pulled. This site is ran between a partner and I. We launched the site in late January of 2007. We haven’t added it up yet but between membership sales and CPA from within the site, the newsletter and monthly broadcasts, I would bet that it’s at least over the $200,00 net profit mark.

I am kind of hoping to see if it’s a quarter million. How cool would that be? One night of work with a partner yields a website that does a quarter million dollars in less than a year. For all the doubters out there, this stat alone is enough to keep you twiddling your thumbs at your day job. For everyone else it should serve as inspiration. It can be done, but it could NOT be done without the support of our affiliates.

We have held the #1 best selling product in the PayDotCom Marketplace with this site since February and NOBODY has even come close to touching us. Between fees and affiliate payouts, I would say we done damn near $600,000.00 total. Not too shabby.

We also have a replica membership site on Clickbank as well. This is called affiliate dominance. I don’t really care for half-assing it. I prefer pure market dominance.

In November I introduced my 4 step video marketing method. This is truly some of the easiest money I have ever made and there are many variations to monetize this with. Domain parking, affiliate marketing, and Pay Per Lead are just a few. I have actually built a few mini sites that are completely ran using these methods. I get a little bit of search traffic, but I can just easily take videos, watermark them and upload to over 25 sites with just a few clicks. There’s a little more to it than that, but not much. A really simple method.

I also tested out a new PPC advertising platform called Clickriver. If memory serves me right, I made about $1,000.00 before Clickriver changed up their system. You were allowed to place advertisements within Amazon’s marketplace. However, Amazon must have felt that they were sending too many people out and Clickriver quickly changed their TOS and how to advertise. A sad day really, because I was truly rocking out pretty good with them.

 I also gave out my exact method to utilizing Yahoo Buzz to gauge market trends. Along with Yahoo Buzz their is also Google Trends and both of them have proved to be real money makers for me. Hell, I would go as far to say that about 25% of my PPC campaigns were based off these after the later part of August.

In December I introduced how to rock out with an affiliate mashup. It was a basic principle aimed at more advanced marketers. The concept is still pretty new to me however both of the mashup sites I own have generated me a nice amount over the last couple of months:

Mashup Earnings

Like I said the concept is still very fresh in my mind and am still working harder than ever on refining it. With just a couple of mashups and the traffic methods of PPC and SEO this is not a bad return so far.

I feel that I could definitely get a few more and turn these sites into an easy $100,000 a year business. That’s the plan anyhow.

It was in December that I also introduced some ideas for how I handle my Parasite SEO. Most people will try to tell you that this is worthless or for a small return. However, they were obviously doing it wrong or made it very hard on themselves. One of the first things I did with my mashup sites was link them with authoritative links from high traffic and good pagerank sites. It works, don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t. It may be a bit time consuming at first, but it can be easily outsourced.

Of course there was also the Zero 2 Hero – 60 Days To List Building course that I wrote as well. This is by far one of the easiest methods to build email lists. However, it seemed most of the people that tried this didn’t have a clue as to what email list building was all about. Unfortunately, the course was not about how to email market but rather how to build email lists. It was sad that the #1 ebook I used in the method went off the shelf, but hey, that’s tough love. I was able to quickly pick up another book, before I decided to put my own together.

Well, that is just a few posts and a little bit of the money I made over my first full year working exclusively online. Anyone that tells you that this is hard is only half true. Most of the people that tell you that making money online is hard, usually aren’t making this type of money. Yea, I work a lot of hours, probably more than most, but that is what happens when you love your job. So keep plugging away and I hope to write up some more great ideas and methods as we progress into 2008.

Like the new post Ruck. I am working on the Mashups. Have two being coded right now. I think I have some really cool niches lined up. Will be in touch. thanks.

January 1, 2008

Happy new year Ruck. Nice post. Refering to the torrent payment screenshot, thats alot of money there. What program is that from?

January 1, 2008

I didn’t mention it for a reason…

Email me, and I will let you know though:)

I would hazard a guess and say that is an adult program… i do not remember where have i seen a similar screenshot before.

Does the email offer stands for me as well?

January 2, 2008

I am curious about the program also.

January 2, 2008

Great no BS advice and ideas. All of the best for 2008 – I just hope this blog doesn’t become too popular :)

January 2, 2008


Well, I am on the opposite of the spectrum on that one…C’mon Mike! :)

January 2, 2008

I’ve implemented several ideas from this blog. Some are tactics and some are business-building.

One of those torrent “tactics” went viral months ago and still brings in sales, although I’ve no control over it now.

Thanks for an encouraging 2007.

Best wishes,

First off Happy New Year to Ya Man!!

Thanks for the motivational screen shot there that you have presented to us .

I know I personally have a long up hill climb ahead of me this year to get thing going, but I have set a Goal for my-self and I don’t think that it is unreasonable and along with all the incredible help and motivation that you give along the way I’m assuring my self that i will reach my goal.

To all our success in 08
Thanks for everything Ruck

January 2, 2008

Thanks Ruck, always inspiring

January 2, 2008

I know what program that first screen shot is from. lol

Good job Ruck. I don’t perform as well as you do with that program, only about 1/2 of what you make with it. Any secrets you can share? :)

January 2, 2008
Nick Flame

I guess i figured out the program that the first screenshot is taken from, but i am not sure.

HINT: Look at the url where the image is stored. See in the picture the weekly payout.

Am i right?

January 2, 2008

The program is Ce Cash if it’s a huge mystery and everyone wants to know.

As far as a secret. Yea there is one. I don’t use my connection to download or upload torrents :)

January 2, 2008

from watching your video, I assumed you dont promote cpas thru torrents anymore, but building traffic instead to anime sites.

January 2, 2008

Nah I don’t even do that really anymore. My anime torrents are pretty much on auto pilot now other than another marketing method I use.

January 2, 2008

do you actually use the password method for cecash, or something else?

January 3, 2008


Password method.

January 3, 2008

How do you not use your connection? Details… :)

January 3, 2008

probably outsource them on dp or something

January 3, 2008


I am not going to comment in detail on this. A friend and partner hooked me up with his programmer. So all I will say is to utilize somewhere on the web that allows cheap storage space. It’s a VERY large site that charges like 15 cents per gig transfered.

Has nothing to do with outsourcing. As a matter of fact with the program I use to this very day, I am still baffled how this guy did it.

Hi, Ruck!

Ruck // Aug 30, 2007 at 8:57 pm

No Don’t buy it.

I can share every torrent tip I have ever used and it won’t cost you anything but your time.

I love to learn this for traffic (+ cash) generation: totally
clueless despite your video and volumes written
here. Any guide I can download Now?

Or where can I find those tips?

Thanks for the outstanding blog!

Hey Ruck,

Happy New Year!

Excellent motivational post for everyone to “get off the pot”. I’m working on my 1st PPI project now — it’s taking me longer to put it together than I thought, but I’m not punking out … I’ll get it done. Then another one :-).

Anyway, keep up the great work that you’re doing with this blog and the new forum.

January 3, 2008

@ Pryda,

I deleted your comment. Why do you think I didn’t want to mention the program in the first place? Yes, I got paid every single time. But use your heads people when we are speaking about such methods and networks.

If I say I don’t want to mention something, then don’t press it. There are good reasons why I don’t.

January 4, 2008


I am learning the ropes from you. Thanks ! I never thought that it was possible to do – what u have done in such a short time.

January 4, 2008

Ok, sorry. I thought you didn’t care anymore because you already posted the program’s name.

January 4, 2008

I just didn’t want to get heavy into it. No probs. I would suspect no network likes this, however I have a little inside info and from the upsells I get weekly ($15) I do fine and never had problems with this program.

January 5, 2008

wow…I WAS making a lot of extra work for myself with some torrent methods and your video really made me slap me head and say “DUH.” It is EASY at it appears at first glance and the worst thing that can be done is to out-think yourself and try and reinvent the wheel.
Some great stuff here..thanks ruck!

January 5, 2008

if you don’t mind dropping me a line — which program was that shot from? Got me both envious & curious. Appreciate it man, keep up the great posts as usual!
