The best IM List you will EVER See! and… An Update!

Gauher Chaudhry just posted one of the most EPIC lists of all time online!  This is 350 websites that will help you make the monies online!  So … Here’s a link for you: Gauher’s Epic List.

Now.  Many of you have sent me emails asking me what I have been doing for the last 2 months… And I’ve been getting alot of questions about the case study… Well… We’ve had 15 conversions… That means we’ve generated a total of $15×27 = $405.  On average we have generated just about 30 visitors a day from free online marketing methods.

So… What has caused me to stop blogging about it?  Well the main reason is that the site has been copied several times.  The copying has been soooooo bad that even the analytics have been transferred over to the doppelgangers. Unfortunately I can’t give an accurate representation of traffic statistics.  But… 15 sales off of 100% free traffic is better than nothing right?

So, where do we go from here?  Unfortunately I will not be continuing the case study. That should be apparent from my 2 months absence.  If I was to move into PPC on the case study then someone will copy the campaign.  Of I was to move into PPV then someone would copy the campaign… Some people have just ruined it for the rest of us…

Anyways, these last couple months I’ve been pretty busy with my coder while all of this has been going down.  We’ve been hard work tweaking a piece of software that we use on a daily basis.  I won’t go into too much detail about it. So… I hope now that I have a little bit of time I can start blogging with you about some extreme tactics that I have been using online.

Anyways, I won’t take up too much more of your fathers day.  To those of you that ARE fathers…I hope you have a great day today! Remember… All that we do online is not for US but is for our FAMILIES.

To Your Success!

Freakin copy cats…


June 21, 2010

Sorry to hear about the people copying your case study. Unfortunately that is bound to happen when too many details are revealed. Still, it sounds like the site is well on its way to becoming another source of regular income.


June 21, 2010

Thanks for sharing the lists.

Kris, that really is unfortunate. All the time and effort you spend helping people try to make better lives for themselves by giving away extremely valuable information for free, just to have others be unscrupulous is disheartening. You have done a great job on this blog and I hope you don’t get discouraged by the bad apples that show up from time to time.


June 22, 2010

Too bad the copycats didn’t copy over your affiliate link too.
That would be pretty cool.

Or maybe you can insert some code to swap the links over.


June 22, 2010

Kris you are doing some sort of charity work and helping others by providing information free of cost. Great job.


June 23, 2010

Very good share, I should to digg it a very long time.

I’m sorry but the fail is all yours. I was actually looking forward to your case study and appreciate the attempt a lot!

But coming off in this post as the victim and letting everyone down because you’re too lazy to follow through with your commitment by going “oh crap, a few leechers copied my super-public landing page … i guess there’s no way on earth this project could ever see the light of day now ..” is not the way to do things man.

There are/were soo many ways to do this or continue doing it without throwing your hands up in defeat after a minor hick-up. For example, not sharing the URL? Or doing the case study behind closed doors while it’s active and only then revealing the juicy details?

Maybe your decision to start a large case study was too spur-of-the-moment? Anyways, not trying to go on a rant. It’s not a big deal, just sayin whats on my mind.


June 23, 2010

@SitPoMk – Appreciate your honesty. I was waiting for this comment to come.

I’m not playing a victim. I really can’t successfully continue with the case study. I made several mistakes when I started this.

1. I was relying on others to do the actual work. I flew myself out to Utah to train to guys in how to successfully create some html pages and to do the basics of “free” marketing methods. I then thought I could train them over skype for other methods when we got to that point. But I learned that marketers come and go. Everyone has the wish to make money online… But not everyone can do it. If I could get in contact with one to two of they guys that took offer for themself then I would be more than happy to help them. At least they took the initiative themselves to try and make some money online.

2. I gave out too much information too fast. I couldn’t get ahead of the curve because of the other projects that I’m working on. I should have waited a couple week before delivering the URL. Better yet… Like you said, I should have done the case study to completion first and then released it to the public.

3. The case study was too large for myself at the time. Only because I have so many other things going on. I have my own campaigns and I have my product creations, my CPA network, and my employees. Because of the nature of how we were doing things it was taking time for money to come in. Unfortunately because the money wasn’t coming in very fast I really didn’t have too much of an interest.

Anyways, I accept the fall for this one. And I appreciate someone like you for pointing things out and speaking exactly what is on your mind.


June 24, 2010

This is too bad you will not complete the case study, I was really looking forward to getting the full report and learning from it.

Thanks.


June 24, 2010

Gauthers list is one of the best I have seen online by far. 350 places to make money online. I published it on my blog with full credit to Gauther I know my readers will find it extremely useful. Keep up the case study I look forward to your findings, and nice blog. Thanks, Jay!


June 24, 2010

well copying is today’s usual problem, but keep up the good work and thanks for sharing :)


These are a lot of great ways to make money online. In my opinion internet marketing consulting, as well as affiliate marketing are two of the better business models online.

I use both of these and I have been quite happy with the results.


June 26, 2010

Isn’t there a plugin called “Landing Page Lockdown” that you can use to disable copied landing pages? Might be what your looking for after what has happened here.


June 27, 2010

well copying is today’s usual problem, but keep up the good work and thanks for sharing


June 28, 2010

Very helpful and useful tips as always. You really do have the marketing methods down. Keep up the great work! Thanks for sharing.


June 28, 2010

Its goo d to see you back. It is a shame that people have copied you to the point that you are stopping the case study. I am sure you will find a way to stop that from happening in the future. Until then can’t wait for the next post.


June 28, 2010

The blatant plagiarism is ridiculous. I see it even on my not-so-profitable projects…

Don’t let that discourage you – I seldom post here, but love your articles! keep up the good work :D


June 28, 2010

I just found this blog, so I am going back now to read about this case study. However, it is truly sad that some people will not do the work themselves and ruin it for everyone else. Kudos on all you are doing.

I read through the series of posts on this case study and I didn’t see you talk about how you built traffic to the site. Could you touch upon this or tell me where you talked about it. Thanks!


July 1, 2010

This is a great list! Definitely Epic!


July 1, 2010

Thanks for sharing the list. I am pretty much pleased with your good work.You put really very helpful information. Keep it up. Keep blogging. Looking to reading your next post.


July 1, 2010

Thanks for sharing this HUGE list. I’ll definitely be using it as a reference in the future.


What a comprehensive list of sites. Nice share! Thanks so much.


July 2, 2010

These copycats are really……damn them! Please don’t stop posting the useful case study. Thanks :)


July 3, 2010

it’s an huge list and i hope i can try some of them. I was aware of facebook ad and google adwords.


July 3, 2010

Tks very much for this post. Because I have a bilingual work at home website and this will help me a lot. CONTENT. Google loves it.


July 4, 2010

This is a great list, thanks for sharing it.


July 5, 2010

Welcome back again to your blogging life kris. Actually I’ve missed your write up a lot and now i am very glad to see you. Like your other post’s this is also great, mainly the list which you have put your efforts.


July 6, 2010

Awesome list. I’m always impressed by people who take the time to put this kind of stuff together. Thanks man!

And sorry to hear someone stole your pages. That sucks. Keep your head up and keep pressing on!

Hey Kris, really great idea of linking out to 350+ im list, sorry to hear that there are copy caters out there, kinda of lame that they did that, I guess you can take some Positives and negatives out of that… Perhaps a positive would be that, you’re really influential, that people want to inspire to be just like you in a way…. Well.. the negatives would probably be everything else :(

Till then,

Jean


July 7, 2010

That’s a big list. Let me go through this.


July 7, 2010

@Jean: yes he could definitely take it as a compliment that people would want to copy his site. It would be quite frustrating though. It essentially ruins the case study by adding a bunch of extra direct competition.


July 7, 2010

This is a huge list and a great resource. Thanks for sharing it. Im sure it will come in handy in the future.


July 8, 2010

@Laptop yeah it is frustrating, and it is definitely overall a negative, I was simply trying to make a positive out of it but in the end it does totally suck :( because like you said it ruins the case study for us all.

Till then,

Jean


July 11, 2010

Haha nice. I just checked the list and you are listed there! Congrats


July 15, 2010

Great article, grThat’s a big list. Let me go through this.eat tips and great list. Keep it up. thank you!..


July 19, 2010

It sucks when people can not do their own work, but have to resort on stealing and plagiarising yours. Nobody ever said it was going to be easy, but they sure didn’t warn us about all the dishonest creeps out there either! Whether it be in cyberspace or in real life, there is a plethora of parasites out there just waiting to attach themselves to a suitable host. Make sure you don not become that ;-)


July 24, 2010

Very nice link. Have been searching for a good list like that. Btw. Too bad about the all the copy-pasting, but most people will always search for “The easy way out” instead of actually creating something original themselves :-/


July 27, 2010

Haha nice. I just checked the list and you are listed there! Congrats

That sucks man :(


August 1, 2010

Really good link. Are already browsing for any great list like that. Btw. Too poor concerning the all of the copy-pasting, but many people will always research for “The uncomplicated way out” rather of in fact making some thing original themselves


August 1, 2010

Quite great link. Are actually browsing to get a very good list like that. Btw. Too lousy concerning the all of the copy-pasting, but most people will often search for “The uncomplicated way out” instead of in fact developing a thing original themselves


August 2, 2010

Your perspective is very excellent. Thanks for put on view this valuable information. I have the benefit of stay.

Wow this list is massive, Ill be sure to use it in the future.


The list you provided here is really awesome. One of the best blog post I read in recent past. This post have great content. I can stand up and say superb!


I love such views “All the time and effort you spend helping people try to make better lives for themselves by giving away extremely valuable information for free, just to have others be unscrupulous is disheartening. You have done a great job on this blog and I hope you don’t get discouraged by the bad apples that show up from time to time.” Thanks for all.


August 12, 2010

It’s quite unfortunate that it was copied so many times. It’s a great list, that’s for sure.


August 13, 2010

It is a shame that people have copied you to the point that you are stopping the case study. I am sure you will find a way to stop that from happening in the future. Until then can’t wait for the next post. Please keep updating.
