Making Money With the Stock Market

Posted on by Donald in Making Money Leave a comment

I love the stock market.. even when it’s down you can be up.

I first started trading stocks only this year and it will probably go down as the best year to invest in our lifetime! If I knew anything about the stock market before I invested, instead of making 100% return on my stocks, I would have made 1000% return or more!

Even today it’s not too late to get in and stay in! That’s the secret of the stock market. Forget those 10% and 20% returns, you want to wait until you get 40% and 50% and even more if you can. If I kept my 7 cents / share SIRI stock at 10,000 shares, I would have a lot of money now. If I kept Ford at $3 a share, BAC at $2.5 a share, etc etc etc I would have made 1000% returns instead of 100% returns.

Still you can’t beat having the stock market help pay for your first house. I even have the government paying me 8k just for buying my house.

Either I was really lucky this year or just had perfect timing.

Two stocks I’m sticking to for at least another year are Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae which are up 20% or so today because of the government removing caps on assistance. The only negative about this is, some say it is only time until the government takes over these two companies, basically wiping common stock out. I don’t think that will happen, it’s a bad image the government doesn’t want, and too much of a problem to take over I think. I still wouldn’t put all my eggs in the FNM and FRE basket.

If you want to start making more money, learn how to invest in the stock market. Really it’s pretty easy to get into, there are ups and downs, I wouldn’t gamble with the mortgage payment, but invest what money you have laying around. You can open a brokerage account with as little as $500 to $1000 and start trading right away. One account I recommend is TD Ameritrade. I have been using them for several months now and I’m extremely happy with them. I can even trade stocks with them on my iPhone.

AutoBlogBook Snippet – Market & Keyword Research

Posted on by Donald in How-To, Internet Marketing, Making Money Leave a comment

Since I haven’t posted in awhile I decided to post a snippet of my new eBook AutoBlogBook.

Now in this post I won’t talk about creating autoblogging so much, but instead the process of researching a niche to dive into. I added this to the beginning of AutoBlogBook because without the initial research for any website, you’re going to have a hard time breaking into a niche. Now this can be helpful to anyone about to start a new online business.

Without further ado, here are a couple pages from my new eBook on Autoblogging.

Market & Keyword Research:

First off before we dive into creating your first autoblog, we need to figure out what you want your autoblogs to promote. Now I’m not going to hold your hand in searching for the perfect niche for you. For me any niche that has plenty of affiliate offers to promote, and has decent adsense earnings is good enough. Really there isn’t a niche that is too saturated if you do proper keyword research first.

Before we do keyword research I recommend you check the health of the niche you want to promote by using Google Trends. What you should do is head over to Google Trends and type in your main niche keywords to see if the search trends are going up or down. If the search trends are up or holding steady, that means we have a solid niche to promote. If the trends are going down then you might want to select another niche to focus on.

Let me add I do my research first before creating autoblogs. I find niche ideas mostly from looking at different affiliate networks for example: Clickbank, CJ, Neverblueads, Peperjam Network, AzoogleAds etc. If there is a good offer out there, I’ll do my research and if it can be easily cracked I’ll setup a dozen or so autoblogs to test the waters. Once I see that it’s profitable I’ll continue building autoblogs for different high traffic, low competition keywords.

Once you find a niche you want to focus on, you must to do the research to find high traffic, low competition keywords. And I stress you MUST do keyword research because if don’t and you start building autoblogs blind your traffic results WILL suffer.

Think of it this way, you don’t want to build your autoblogs targeting highly saturated keywords that you’ll never get traffic for when there are plenty of low competition keywords with just as much traffic, but are much easier to rank for.

Okay, enough talk.

Let’s do some keyword research.

Keyword Research:

Generally I tend to focus on keywords that have more than 1000 searches per month, and have less than 50,000 search results in Google doing an exact keyword search.

An easy way to find solid keywords for your niche is to go to Google’s Keyword Tool, and do a search for your main niche keyword.

The keyword tool will generate new keyword ideas.

Once your search is complete, you’ll see a list of related terms.

I like to add the column ‘Show Search Volume Trends’ when doing my searches.

Also make sure to switch from Broad match type to Exact Match Type.

You’ll want keywords with at least 1000 searches per month under Exact Match.

Once you select a few keywords, go to Google and do a search on the competition. What you need to do is an exact keyword search and look for total search results. An exact keyword search in Google is your keyword in quotes, for example “keyword”.

Basically you want keywords that have less then 50k search results. The fewer search results there are, the easier it will be to rank on the first page of Google for that term.

So are you getting the idea now? You want keywords with high traffic and low competition!

Now this can be a tedious task, but you know what? It’s free and works.

If you want a faster and easier way of finding high traffic, low competition keywords then I highly recommend using Micro Niche Finder. It’s the best keyword research tool I’ve used. It does exactly what we need it to do but it goes a step further in analyzing the competition to determine their keyword strength. Actually it does that and a lot more, check it out here.

It’ll save you a lot of time in your keyword research.

To learn about creating Autoblogs from A to Z be sure to check out AutoBlogBook. It was written by me about a month ago and so far I’ve had nothing but positive feedback about it.

Be sure to check out!

Good luck!

I Like the Challenge That Comes Before Money!

Posted on by Donald in Making Money Leave a comment

My favorite topic isn’t Money! It’s different ways of making money!

People tell me all the time and now more often since I started messing around with stock trading that my favorite topic is money! I’ve had people specifically tell me it’s my favorite topic, and it’s all I talk about.

Come on!

I just find it awesome that in our day and age that there are so many opportunities to make serious amounts of money its crazy! A person can invest in today’s stock market and a couple years from now easily double, triple or quadruple their investment. I could have doubled my money at least four times in the past couple months.

Now I’m not saying it’s easy, it actually takes work to make good money in general! But if a person is motivated and works hard enough there are so many opportunities out there to take advantage.

Like what?

Okay, for one there is the stock market like I just mentioned. I’m not saying it’s the bottom but do the research people, this is the best time to invest and if you hold long for a couple years you could easily have a good return on your investment. Now some say it’s best to invest long term, but in this market ‘day trading’ is ruling right now. I buy on the dips and sell on the peaks. I average down if I need to and hold for a couple weeks then sell my positions on good gains. I haven’t mastered day trading yet, but I’m a patterns person, I find patterns easily and I’m sure after a few more months of trading I’ll become a pro. *happy face

If you’re interested in investing I recommend TD Ameritrade; seriously it’s the best I’ve used and very user friendly.

Okay what else?

I’m not going to mention eBay, because we all know how difficult they are.

If you already have a product to sell, which I’m sure most of the readers of this blog have, then start selling it in different places. If you’re just on eBay, expand to your own website and start promoting long term growth in that way.

That’s a huge topic on its own and it’s what my latest eBook is on, but I’ll promote that later on. : )

Okay, there’s another example.

If you’re an expert on something and there are people in need then write a short eBook on it. The main thing is to answer a question. Like with eBay Stealth, there are huge amounts of suspended eBay members who don’t know what to do after eBay kills their business, they want to get back to selling and I show them how in an easy step by step guide.

If you can answer a question a lot of people are asking, then there you go, write about it.

What else?

You have to provide something a person needs. If you develop a product and it solves a problem for a large niche group then you’ll have success and make money. I buy hundred dollar programs it seems once a week from different programmers. I pay people for their services all the time.

When I need articles for marketing I go to the DP forum and pay people $5 per 500 word articles. I paid this guy the other day $150 for a large order of articles I needed. He was happy I’m sure.

If you don’t care, there are some interesting threads on e-whoring in the Black Hat World forum. They’re not only humorous but educational as well. Here they are:

And no I haven’t tried e-whoring, I’m only showing it to you to point out how creative some people have become to make money online. This is pretty easy for the average person to pull off actually. I would recommend my brother or sister to do something like this, e-whoring that is, LOL…

Okay, what else can make you money online?

If you have a website with traffic you can promote different affiliate programs. Now I say a website with traffic because playing the PPC game isn’t for a novice. If you have traffic already you can find good products your visitors might go for. For example I’m promoting TD Ameritrade in this post. If someone signs up I make $50, bah. I’ll most likely get a few people to sign up initially, the good thing about affiliate marketing and having your own website is over the years I’m sure to get even more sign ups. An easy post that took 30 minutes to write, will over the years make several hundred dollars in many different ways.

If you’re brave, another solution is to setup review style squeeze pages to promote different affiliate offers. This works well for me, but then again I get a lot of my traffic for free using different traffic methods.

It’s fun.

I like a challenge and I like working hard so this making money online thing works for me.

Will it work for everyone?


I don’t know what it is. I think it takes a certain person to venture online and decide one day that nothing else matters. They’ll start a business and start making money from it. They’ll expand and diversify their income solidifying their money making abilities. Some people give up early and go back to their JOB, others don’t.

Just know there are so many ways to make money online there really isn’t an excuse not to diversify your income. The only thing holding you back is yourself.

If you want more methods to make money online, here are a couple resources I recommend.

Bah money! I like the challenge that comes before money.

Time for me to get back to work.

Okay, I Can’t Hold My Excitement Any Longer!

Hehe, either it’s the second shot of Monster energy in me, or I’m just excited about my next eBook I’m working on! Not only do I love doing eBooks now, even though I hate writing, but I love the fact that when writing an eBook I learn so much more about the subject it makes it all worth it.

So I just finished the first version of Webmaster Blueprint, an eBook about learning how to start on online business with your own website and how to market it.

I need to come up with a new tag line..

Webmaster Blueprint! The best damn internet marketing eBook out there, a Beginners guide to starting an online business and Marketing it for EXPLODING SALES! YEAH!!!!!! Bi*CH!!

monster_energyHaha.. Monster Energy is Awesome!

Ah, I forget what’s my new eBook about? The secret I didn’t want to talk about in one of my lastest post?

It’s for the lazy Black Hat Marketer! I find at times I’m a pretty lazy person, other times when I have monster in me I’m apparently not so lazy. Okay enough delay, my new eBook which is still in the research stage will be on Auto Blogging!

What is Auto Blogging?

It’s the process of setting up dozens, even hundreds of Blogs that run on autopilot!

If your auto blogs are setup correctly you can easily make hundreds even thousands of dollars a day with them. But it’s not an easy process! I want to stress this, it’s not all fun and games and not for a quick buck until you master auto blogs!

I’ve been auto blogging for a couple years now, and the blogs I have, some are doing very well and others are on life support with me reaching for the cord.

Auto blogging can be fun because you can watch and nurture your auto blogs into a money making machine that can drive tons of traffic to anything you want really.

If you have a business you want to promote, setup a dozen or so auto blogs and point your blogs to your business website. I used to do that when I sold virtual currencies for online games and it worked very well.

If you’re an affiliate marketer, add your affiliate offers all over your blog for sales.

Currently I like to presale a product with landing pages, also I have banners setup to promote affiliate offers and I collect emails to promote more products later on! It’s awesome and it generates me hundreds of dollars a day on autopilot.

I do a lot of things to make money online, and I found auto blogging and selling my own product seem to be the best bet for making solid long term income online.

I’ve been making money with auto blogs for literally years now… and that’s the way I like it.

I’ll keep you guys updated on the status of the Auto Blogging guide.

It shouldn’t be a long process like Webmaster Blueprint, hopefully it will be done in a month or two! Most likely two months. *crosses fingers*

My monster drink is making me crash so I must nap now.

Starting a Blog From Scratch

Posted on by Donald in Article Writing, How-To, Making Money, SEO 2 Comments

A daunting task I know, so how does one do it? You buy a domain, get your hosting setup, install WordPress… now what?

wordpress scheduel postFor me, I don’t have the time to start writing in a new blog everyday. I hardly have the time to write in this one. So what I do is either buy articles from the DigitalPoint forums or I find content that is free but not in the search engines already. You want to use unique content because search engines do not like duplicate content and they will penalize you for it. Then I use WordPress to schedule articles to be posted in the future. I can schedule hundreds of post to be published days, weeks, months or even years a head a time. That saves me time and I don’t have to worry about the blog for the most part.

Then I start creating backlinks. A member of the eBay Suspension forum has been working on a list of sites that give you free dofollow backlinks. Go through the list and start creating backlinks for your site using the keywords you want to rank for in search engines.

That’s all there is to it. Add unique content often, and create a lot backlinks. Easy right?

Here are my stats for a blog I started a little over two weeks ago. It’s a brand new blog with only a couple backlinks and about 20 articles so far.

New Blog

I plan to scheduel 1-2 articles a day to be posted and create more backlinks as time goes by. It seems to be going in the right direction for just being 19 days old.

And remember for long term success on the internet, having your own website is one of the best ways to go. Good luck!

New Poker Strategy Working?

Posted on by Donald in Life, Making Money Leave a comment

If you’ve read any of my previous Poker post, you would see I have been having ups and down with the game. I Recently moved to Las Vegas to try my luck at Professional Poker. Right now I’m considered a Semi-Pro because I have a working job, and play Poker part time. My new strategy involves the the Pro look. Before I would walk in the poker room looking like a Vegas tourist, and I’m sure other players would think of me as a Donkey, a weak player. I consider my self a tight player, which is bad if there are a lot of aggressive players out there. Usually the aggressive player has all the money, but sometimes they get caught. Anyways, the pro look, what is the pro look?

Some go for the Cowboy Jesus look:

Chris Fergusion

Some show you the Poker stare:

Poker Stare

Others Just Play in what they woke up with:


So what I did was combine the Cowboy look, with the Poker stare and just woke up let’s put on some gold chains look into:


(Yes I suck at Photoshop)

And you know what? It seems to be working for me. No I don’t look like the above, but I have dressed more professional and I got a new pair of spiffy sunglasses. I’ve yet to lose the past week!

So is it all in the Look? I don’t know, but for me it’s been working, let’s see how long it last. 🙂

So I Offically Suck At No-Limit Poker

Posted on by Donald in Life, Making Money, Rant 2 Comments

No matter what I do, I have no luck and lose. I’ll have pocket Queens, and raise it, some guy goes all in with pocket Kings, I lose. I have pocket Queens again, I go all in with a guy who has pocket sevens and lose to a set, he get’s a seven on the flop. I have pocket Jacks, the flop brings me a Jack, this guy goes all, I fold because there’s a flush on the turn, the river comes another Jack. The last hand today, I have Ace King, I go all in and two people call, one guy has Ace Queen and beats me with two pair. No luck for me. And then when I do have winning hands no one calls my modest raises. Bah! I hate Vegas!

What Am I Doing Wrong?

Posted on by Donald in Making Money Leave a comment

This isn’t related to eBay or PayPal, or even affiliate marketing. It’s about Poker.

gambling-addiction.jpgBefore I felt I only knew the basics of poker, yet I was making killing at it. Every time I played I tripled my starting money, thus the reason I moved here (Vegas). The moment I move here and start playing again, I can’t seem to win more then I lose. I mean most days I win but when I lose, I lose big time! What’s the deal? I can’t seem to win like I used to, and the only difference I see is before I moved here I played very frugal. I didn’t beat hard even though I had the winning hand. Now I seem to beat hard and everyone folds and I get squat!

I think I answered my own question… I need to slow play things and trap people… Arg!

I’m going to do that tomorrow and report how I do.

Wish me Luck!

The Girl Scouts Marketing Got To Me! But HoW?

Posted on by Donald in How-To, Internet Marketing, Making Money Leave a comment

So I’m on a Low to No Carb diet for the most part and man… up until 10 minutes ago I’ve been crazy low on energy today. I woke up around 7am, did the usual updating sites, checking the forum and affiliate sales and passed out around noon until 3pm.

Luckily! My usual route of checking mail boxes, visiting some neighbors, going to the local stores I found my self being slammed by girl scouts and their cookies. Twice I encountered these little screaming girls and sad to say I gave in the second time. *half of sleeve of my thin mints is down!

I got to thinking and in my crazy mind of marketing, the first group of girl scouts I wasn’t much interested in, but they got it in my head the idea of cookies. The second group had me sold before I walked up to them. They simply let me walk by without saying anything, but on my way out, I knew they would still be there; wanting me to buy their cookies. I know about their product, I’ve had it before. I had a demand at the time, I was low on energy and needed a quick carb pick me up. And damn the second time was a charm. I bought the cookies.



How does this tie in with Internet marketing? I’m getting there…

Email Marketing does wonders in gaining confidence in potential customers who just aren’t ready to buy from you.

Once you have someone on your list, you can email them again and again until the confidence is built and they’re sold on you. I have auto responders on a few of my sites where when someone signs up, they’re sent an email once a week for about 5 weeks. It really should be more but I haven’t had the time to write more emails yet.

Anyway, usually seven emails sales a customer if you can gain their trust. The seventh email is the proven money maker if you do things right.

A simple 7 week course on something you’re promoting is enough to gain the customer’s confidence and for you to make that sale.

I use GetResponse, it’s cheap at $19.95 per month and is easy to setup and implement. If the Girl Scouts can do it with their sidewalk Super Sales, you can do it too but on autopilot! Try it out!
