11 Services You Can Offer Immediately & BANK Today, BitcheZ!

Listen, obviously, you’re not a bitch, but I call all of my people affectionately “bitcheZ”. I know, it’s very mature of me. And if you can’t tell, I’m shitloads of sarcasm as well.

Anyways, on to the business at hand: if you want to be successful in the SEO or IM world, you need to be able to SELLYou need to sell yourself as well as your services and products.

What a shocker!

Most of you will complicate this, I know I certainly had.  Because I’m not into wasting time, we are going to cut right to the chase.

But before I do that, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. There are two things you need to experiment with before you’ll find success:

  • Finding The Right Angel
  • Finding Your Customers

Without further ado:

#1.  Sell Simply Designed WordPress Websites

Obviously, $300 for a website isn’t going to make you rich.  However, and especially if you’re starting out and you are strapped for cash, and you only know the basics, I bet you can easily find folks within your network you can sell low end packages too. Holy fudgecakes, you could sell base packages for $500-$1000 easily to small businesses to build your portfolio.

Of course, you don’t have to blast out to your network that you are setting up super cheap websites.  If you have friends who own small businesses, this is perfect.  Tell them you will hook them up with this “friends discount” especially if they can provide a review for your services.

#2.  Sell Web 2.0 Links With Decent PA

If you don’t know, PA stands for page age.  Find 10-15 web 2.0 properties in particular niches.  You can do this in a couple of ways.

The first method is you register for a good 20-30 of the best web 2.0s available.  To raise the PA on new accounts can take a little bit of time.  In the past, Backlink Beast has worked for me, along with a mix of Social Adr and Fiverr packages.

Of course, if you do a simple Google search, you can find ways to scrape deleted high PA web 2.0s.  It will take you a couple of hours and an investment in the proper tools but the potential is extremely nice.

Register 10-30 niche specific web 2.0s so you can sell a nice link package.

#3.  Sell Links On Newly Registered Web 2.0s

Most people don’t see the value in placing links on newly registered web 2.0s (not aged), but I beg to differ.  These won’t make you a ton of cash but register a good 50 or 100 of these and sell link packages for whatever works for you.  Selling link packages from $3-$5 per link with short, original guest posts?  Trust me, people will buy.  You could sell a $50 link package for 17 links (and that’s at $3 a pop!)

Of course, you don’t have to go this cheap. Experiment! Keep in mind though that since these are newly registered, you can’t charge too much unless you have another attractive selling point 😉

Obviously, make the package a bit attractive 😉

#4.  Sell Links on Private, Local PBN

Got a bit of investment $$?  These days, you can easily set up a sweet little private blog network.  The idea is the same.  Please don’t focus on high PR as much as finding expired domains with a non-spammy backlinking profile and has varied referring domains.  You’ll hear one marketer say one thing and another something else.  But trust me: PR is not as important as it once used to be.

Of course, if you are starting off, auctions could be a bit expensive.  You can either partner up with someone who knows how to scrape expired domains and find some sexy ones or invest in a scraper.  Or hire someone on Fiverr.

#5.  Sell Customized Services For $100-$300 A Pop

Heck, why stop at one??  Design three and offer at $100, $200, and $300!  “Moon, wtf does that mean?!”

Are you good at writing?  Can you sell a collection of articles or an article that has the potential to go viral for a $100?  There are tons of people with PBNs who need fairly priced content on the daily but here, buyers are typically looking for cheap (yet original) articles for the most part.

Writing isn’t your thing?  How about designing smart little SEO packages that you can contact your local SEO agencies with?  Heck, you could sell these packages online.

Been there, done that 😉

#6.  Sell Domains In Bulk

Private blog networks are all the rage these days.  Everyone wants the best expired domains for their PBNs.  PR is not as important as it once was (these probably won’t be updated again: John Mueller about PR updates).  If you have experience in buying domains and know how to acquire ones with great metrics, SELL THAT SHIT, FOOL!

#7.  Sell Guest Posts On High PA Tumblr

A couple of weeks ago, I remember seeing a post selling guest posts on their powerful Tumblr page.  I forget the exact PA, but I believe it was over 30+.  This guy was asking for $75 per post.

$75 PER POST.

Those who are need high quality links will not hesitate to purchase a guest post like this. Between IMers this may be too much to pay but not for the right buyers. Even then. Imagine if you can get 2 or 3 or 10 Tumblr’s like this!  Sell guest posts individually or in packages of 3 or 5 in similar niches.

Great.  I think I know my assignment for tonight…

#8.  Sell Setups For PBN Type Sites

Now, this isn’t the most well paying job and you have to be careful with what you are selling here.  In my case, I worked with a client who had domains set up but needed me to sign up for hosting, switch around the widgets randomly, install a clean theme, publish an article they provided, etc.  It wasn’t the best paying job but it was still a nice chunk-a-change.  Plus, it helped me gather a list of cheap hosts and added another notch on my SEO belt 😉

#9.  Sell A Tiered Linking Structure

Look at any other successful marketer online.  What do they sell?  These days, the push is on PBNs but I firmly believe that they are not the answer alone.  How long will Google let PBN links to rank your sites, alone?

It’s way more natural to combine social signals, viral traffic, and make a tiered linking structure that looks natural.  Similar ones can be designed for local SEO.

#10.  Specialize in a Tool And Sell Your Service With Proven Case Study

There are so many tools available on the market: Scrapebox, GSA Tracker, FCS Networker… and plenty more.  Any monkey can blast thousands of links but how can you set yourself apart?

Be a smart marketer!  Layer these tools to mimic smart link building that seems (and is) natural in Google’s eyes.  Don’t create hundreds and thousands of spammy links!  Create authoritative web 2.0s, create layers that make sense.

Document your case studies and unleash them.

Trust me–people pay attention to case studies.

Parting Words…

OOPS! I lied. It’s a video that’s complimentary with this article. Originally, this article was titled differently 😉

The Poor Man’s PBN: Super Charging Your Web 2.0s For Extreme Rankings… Err’ Time!

Due to the low barrier of entry, anyone can become an SEO or an internet marketer. Isn’t that what everyone is calling themselves on their LI profiles? 😉 But to become a great one? That requires you to think. Sure, having some money when you get started is a great advantage these days but if you don’t learn from your mistakes fast, you’re screwed, Chump!

For the last two years, everyone has been praising PBNs (that’s private blog networks, just in case you didn’t know). As long as you had a few medium to high PR (page rank) domains in your network, you’d see instant results. As a result, everyone and their brother had a “PBN” set up and would sell links on their network. The end result was sloppy PBNs set up everywhere and, of course, Google caught on, and now their algorithm can detect websites set up for ranking purposes…. or as I believe, sites that are setup extremely sloppily are the ones that get detected.

That doesn’t mean that PBNs don’t work–absolutely they do. But, they do need to be setup with care and this post isn’t about that. This post is about something that everyone can do.  Something that YOU can do TODAY, right now:

The Poor Man’s PBN: Super Web 2.0s

Since last summer, when my experimentation with web 2.0s began, I realized how powerful they could be. The best part? Web 2.0 accounts are free to register. And that’s the thing I find funny: most marketers will overlook them simply because they are free and keep focusing on PBNs exclusively.

But why should you believe me?  You don’t have to but you’ve got nothing to lose by trying either except for time or money (if you ask the provider to tailor the gig to this guide).  Keep in mind, some are long tails and couple short tails, but this has been achieved by social bookmarking plus my super web 2.0s:

web 2.0 rankings

 

If you’re not impressed, then leave.  I have just given you a strategy that you can use, for free.  I’m gearing up for another round of web 2.0s to push this site into top 5 and top 10 for both long tail and short tail keyphrases.

Just watch me, Punk!

just watch my web 2.0s

 

Thing is, just like PBNs, days of setting up a new web 2.0 and slapping content on it with a link or two right away? Yeah, buds, at best, it’s just not a good strategy. [Some SEOs will argue that’s not the case but I’m striving for longevity here…]

I’d like my efforts to pay off for the long run. I don’t have time to replace links when I can do things the right way, with a bit more time and effort, and have these powerful links hang on for years.

If you have nowhere to start, start with web 2.0s. These babies may not seem all that powerful compared to PBNs but well done web 2.0s have their place in your backlinking campaign!

Wanna see my list of top 20 web 2.0 websites that you should be utilizing for your websites? Well, let’s do a little bit of give and take 😉

Step 1: Create Accounts For Each Web 2.0s

This is easy.  Go to each one of the web 2.0s and create an account.  This usually entails a name, location, and a lot more boring details.  Kill it, bruh.

Step 2: Verify Accounts & Fill Out Each Account Profile

As you go along, verify each account (you can create a new email address at mail.com, by the by!)  After verification, start filling out account details.  Crap like what you like to do, your favourite movies, and God knows what else.

Step 3: Post Your First “Welcome” Type Post

Don’t make things harder than they have to be.  Create your first welcome post.  How about a 100-300 word entry?  To save some work, do this for half the web 2.0s and for the other half, use memes or jokes.  But don’t share the same images between each web 2.0.  Keep everything as unique as possible.

Step 4: Update With More Content

So, look, this truly comes down to you.  Yes, it’s a fair amount of work.  But nothing like showing Google that these are legitimate web properties that are updated constant… and with relevant content.

Now you’re giving Google a boner.  Wheeeeee.

hey_girl_meme

It’s debatable.  You can drop your links in the second post, third post, and so on.  I have done it within two posts AND after 10 posts.

I like to do things differently than other SEOs especially when the herd does super lazy work.

That’s how you stand the test of time… and usually, Google algorithm updates.

Step 5: Drop It Likes It’s HAWT (Your Link Silly)

Perhaps it’s been two weeks or two months.  You’ve made the posts and now you are ready to drop the link back to your money site.  Create a relevant post, with memes, appropriate images, a video: shoot, mix it up, Fools!

And then, put in your link.  Now keep in mind, keep your anchor link diverse.  I don’t have your magic numbers.  If you are about to make 20 links, make 10 into random texts, 7 your main texts, 3 your secondary.  Safe anchor linking, y’all 😉

Step 6: Keep Updating Your Web 2.0s

Look, if you have time, update your web 2.0s.  It looks like a thriving, active property to Google.

Step 7: Fire Social Bookmarks At Your Web 2.0s

Now, the final part and do this consistently.  Every week, randomly fire 100-200 social bookmarks at your web 2.0s and your website directly.  The anchor text?  Make it relevant to your keyphrases but don’t use the exact same keyphrases.  For instance, if your main keyphrase to rank for is “how to train a kitten”, then your anchor text could be “this site about kittens rocks” and “My cat learned potty training using this site.”

zomg seo sauce

That’s it!  Yes, it’s work.  It’s work that 95% of marketers who read this definitely won’t do it or argue with me on how to do it “better”.  Nope.  I believe in setting up the first layer of web 2.0s to be super charged and authentic properties.

Additionally, you can use automated tools to do some of this work but none of the tools can do the really good work… like original content that is human readable, long lasting, and setting up these web 2.0 properties properly!

Choose To Thrive Or Choose To Fucking Die

On June 5th, I posted, “Yesterday had me thinking, “Where did life go so wrong that you don’t want to wake up anymore?”

june_5th_thoughts_on_fb

There comes a time, such moments in your life, if you’re lucky, where you know you will no longer be that same person anymore. These moments spur your very being into evolving yourself because you know, that if you don’t, you will either whither away OR, if somehow, you believe in yourself, you can grow into the person that you’re supposed to be. They help define you.

Not to sound dramatic but this website is a part of my growth, that turning point in my life where I can’t look back. This site is where you will see stuff from my personal life bleed over… which means severe repercussions when it comes to family life. You see, with my last name, come tons of expectations: religious and cultural.

Being the first generation born here in the United States, that means partaking in decisions that my family doesn’t agree with. You see my “About Me” (Fine, Horsey-Poo page)? That contains more of my life than I’ve let my family and friends see outside of Facebook.

…And the week prior, the week of my birthday, I was hit with the most stress I have ever felt past the age of 18. Family pressures & obligations.

Again, in case I’m not being clear, being a woman, more specifically, a Muslim woman, first generation of Pakistani descent, “Americanized”, and not married by the age of 33 (just turned 33!), amongst “other things”–has been a huge struggle. I’m sure it’s as much of a struggle for my family as it is for me.

Last week, I can honestly say I was tested: boundaries were pushed and I felt uncomfortable. I’m well aware that these words could be used against me but, going back to that first paragraph, it’s time to be all I can be. To make my own decisions.

To not be afraid, to not be anxious, to be more ME, to be the better me so eventually I can be the best me.

Why Am I Sharing Personal Crap Here?

One, I’m not built like the rest. Over the last year, I have found relief in writing. When I share my personal feelings, when I get it all out (usually only reserved for my most private circle), I feel relieved, albeit, perhaps temporary relief.

Two, a few years ago when I had my blog in the IM space, and I felt that I wasn’t doing as well as what seemed to be ‘small time bloggers’ who were becoming big timers, I learned about all the dishonesty that this space can generate. There’s more to this. I learned over the last two years that these blogs are deliberately set up to NEVER share any failures, to only sell the mirage of success.

I love TV shows like Shark Tank because of the nature of the show! We get to see entrepreneurs step up, share their stories, even when they’re not successful, and see if they get picked up by one of the sharks.

I think it’s important to share struggles. We all have a story to tell. It’s the one thing that helps connect us… maybe even save us? Nothing has helped me more in the last 2.5 years than meeting people who pulled me out of myself.

I will forever be grateful for people who extended their hand to me, even when I pretended I didn’t need the help. I am grateful for people I can now call my friends, who, when they saw me in a corner by myself (hey, I can’t help I have the makings of a feral cat :/ ), they pulled me to them to talk to them, as if they needed my company.

Writing about it makes me tear up.

My Catalyst

I will never forget the week of my 33rd birthday: May 29th through June 6th, to be specific. I will never forget the boundaries that were pushed, how the whole thing went down. Last week (as I type this), had me thinking that this would be, frankly, the shittiest birthday yet.

Little did I know!

On my birthday, I was scheduled to teach a class full of 8th graders. I walked in and as I took my beanie off, the whole classroom burst into my happy birthday song! As they sang it to me, and as I took it in trying to hold emotion back, another student walked towards me and handed me a bunch of happy birthday cards that they had all individually made! Just look at the effort they made for me:

birthday cards by kids

That same day, friends… well “new” friends, let’s be frank, made time for me as well as close friends. I was treated to amazing Indian food, the perfect coffee, a delicious chocolate shake, and fun at night.

However, that’s not the peak of it. On Saturday, during our flag football playoff game, I was given so much time on the field, it took me by surprise. I typically rush a little bit or substitute for slot, which isn’t a lot when sharing those positions with other players. However, this time, I was also told to play linebacker position on defense.

Having never done this, I’m pretty sure I crapped a brick or two. First, in a hurry, I asked my teammate what the heck I was supposed to cover. Then thoughts like, “oh my God, Moon! If you miss one flag, you’ll never be asked to play defense again!”

Let’s just say that I played my best ever, caught my passes, and plenty of flags! As if that could get any more amazing, after the game, my amazing teammate Sara, pulls me aside, “Hey, let me introduce you to the girls in the league. It’s annoying when I say their names and you don’t know them.” I laughed and went along.

I should’ve known when this clever Frenchie introduced me to just one female player & brought me back. Back where? To where my team had set up a birthday cake for me, with a football signed by the team, & crooning happy birthday to me…

bday cake

That post, the image I’ve posted above, was posted after all of this went down. I experienced low lows and now high highs all within the week of my birthday. Talk about irony, Alanis!

Anyways…It’s My Time! Is It Yours?!

This has been long and very much focused on me. I have websites in the works, itsy bitsy details I’ll be sharing of how the sites are set up, the timeframe it took to generate any revenue, the backlinking strategies, and so on.

If there’s one thing I have learned this year, it’s that when you put good out in the world, more than likely, in one form or another, it’ll come back to you.

The lesson here is: take charge of your life, do whatever the fuck you want to do with it because you’re only going to live ONCE, and give, give, give!

Yesterday, while taking a hot shower, (minds outta gutter, please, haha!), I had this moment. I was tired. I am tired. I was tired of the shampoo stinging my eyes but while I can’t help that, could I possibly help the emotional struggles I’ve been feeling, non-stop, for years now?

The answer isn’t that easy, I know, but it was a “you can definitely do better. You’ve held yourself back professionally and personally but why? For what? Why are you letting your dreams slip by? You’re better than this… you’ve done things. Things you know you had to do to survive. You’re the one who is suffering and if it’s not your time now, then when?

It was a moment in a series of moments that felt so surreal, that it felt like I was watching a character play me in a badly scripted movie.

There were moments I felt like I could hysterically laugh out loud (because I see the humour in most situations) or hysterically… cry out loud. And that’s hard to admit.

After all, how could this be my life? How could things have gotten this bad?

If you are in debt, struggling with your family for whatever reason, dealing with anything that’s taking ahold of your life, you can choose to go either way:

  • Decide to come out of it
  • Keep feeling the same emotions until they take you down

Goals

Simple. Generate a full time income through online properties:

 

  • In 6 months, generate $2k per month from my own websites
  • By my 34th birthday, generate $5k per month from my own websites

 

Don’t get me wrong: I’m not cocky. However, I recognize the lethal knowledge I possess and also, the ways in which I have sabotaged myself. This is extremely doable. Plus, now I can tap into a network of people (other marketers) that I trust, who I can reach out to and get some advice. This will be key!

Plus, if I fail miserably, you get to tell me 😉 You’ll see what I’m struggling with, what is working, what’s not, how I handle any situations with my properties. I always love reading about case studies and detailed reports… so… you’re welcome!

Stop Fucking Around

I’ve made up my mind. I’m going to look at all that I have and all I’m about to gain. Fuck that, I’m lucky. I’m not sure how this happened but it did… and now I’m here.
