This week, Anik Singal revealed a slightly questionable YouTube trick, and I'm probably the only with b***s enough NOT to sugar coat it.
First, let me tell you how the trick works:
You search YouTube for what people are searching for right now right now. Anik says that you want to concentrate on YouTube videos that get 100+ views per day or 2,000 views per month. The point being that you'll be tapping into this targetted traffic that people are searching for (and your video will show up in the searches).
That's easy to understand.
Second, so you found some YouTube videos that are getting the right amount of searches. Then, you find some affiliate products that you'll review. You'll create a simple review site that has three or more pages. The simple here are three products that you'll love (then place your affiliate link next to each product's description).
Third, use a screen capture software to review the product or report that you find from #1. You'll post this review to your YouTube channel using as many keywords in the title, description, and tags.
Now, the hype begins when Anik says that just by doing this trick alone – you'll build a list of 16,000 people and make $350,000.. And let's ask some real questions that need answered:
1. How many videos do you have to post?
2. How long did it take you to get the $350,000 and how much did it cost. Did you spend any advertising dollars?
From the webinar, Anik makes you believe that it's a simple YouTube video to affiliate page. Then, you'll tap into all the traffic searching for #1.
So I dug a little deeper…
I went to the website that Anik promoted on the webinar (www.wow1to60.com) .. I thought that's an easy site to put together. Two affiliate links.. Two products.. Screenshots.. That's easy to do. I can do this with 1998 Frontpage (lol).
There are a ton of pages, but easy enough.
Then, I went to the search engines.. AND this is what I found..
A FULL FLEDGED BLOG ABOUT TOPIC #1:
Now I had originally thought that a simple webpage with 3 pages were the instructions that I was given. How much of those affiliate commissions came from this huge blog full of keywords that goes back two years and 40+ pages deep.
See what I mean.. There is more going on here than meets the eye, and that's what marketing is.. You have to look past what's being sold or offered and look at the marketing behind it. When you take the blueprint or the model behind the marketing and immediately apply it to your business, then you'll have many different income streams coming in.
The YouTube to Affiliate Site may work and yes – I will test it out and if it works, then I'll roll it out .. systemize it..hand it off to a virtual assistant and move on to the next strategy!
