Work Less, Make More Money - Part 1

This section is not necessarily limited to AutoBlog Samurai.

So far, we've talked at length about the pros and cons of AutoBlog Samurai. One of the drawbacks to this product is that unless you are willing to put in a lot of work upfront, you won't make the kind of money that is hyped in the sales pitch. The upside is you can make lots of money. If you employ a little bit of ingenuity you can begin to reduce the workload without reducing your income.

What I'm going to give you now is not new or special, but it is a definite method for reducing your workload. The key to reducing your workload is to have other people do it for you. Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!...Whoa!

I know you just had an aneurysm and blew a gasket because you, the microbusiness owner, don't have the resources to hire people to do the work for you. At least, not at $7.25/hour or whatever the minimum wage is now. But, if you found someone who could do it or would do it for much less, then you'd have found the key to success.

Now, you could go ask the guy cutting the lawn next door or the kid working the counter at McDonald's if they'd be willing to work for next to nothing, but I doubt you'd get many takers. But there are people in this world that will do the work for much less. They'll do it for much less and because the internet is worldwide they can do the work from anywhere.

Imagine if you could build a business charging people in dollars and paying your help in Indian Rupees. What if you could charge $100 dollars and pay the person managing your business $5 or R$235.50 [$1 = R$47.10]. That means that you keep $95. That's huge.

Not only is it huge, but it is easy to do. Two good places to start are:

Each of these businesses provide outsourced services to you at a greatly reduced cost. They do it in two completely methods. I'll show you':

GetFriday is a virtual assistant company. They are based in India and can do almost anything that does not require a physical presence to do. They can do internet research, article writing, website administration, and for the purposes of AutoBlog Samuraithey can manage both the selection of products that you are marketing and the execution of the marketing. They can do it while you're sleeping, golfing, working a real job, or any other time.

Elance, on the other hand, a job bidding site. You can propose anything you want done. If there are people or companies out there that think they can do your task, they'll bid on the job. You can sort through the proposals and find a perfect fit for your quality expectations and budget.

So, now you know that you can find someone to do your work for you, we need to figure out how to make sure they do the right job. We'll cover that tomorrow.

Make Money - Lots or Little, Easy or Hard

I told you in the last post that you should not purchase AutoBlog Samurai if you were looking to make a fortune fast. That's because I always err on the side of caution. I mean, lookit, the product squeeze page hypes the product and seems to suggest that you can make boat loads of money for just a little work.

You know what, that may be true; if you're lucky or extremely talented. Otherwise you'll have to put in a lot of work to make a boat load of money. That's just the long and short of it. Now, once you get your process up and running you can reduce the time required to maintain your income. We'll discuss that topic tomorrow, but today we're going to focus on the math behind the profits that can be made with AutoBlog Samurai.

The trick to making the money you want to make is to really identify how much you want. If someone were to you that you could go to the local bank vault and withdraw as much money as you wanted, no doubt you'd take out a pile of money. I said pile because that number is different for everyone. For some, a couple hundred thousand dollars is a lot and for others, they would not be satisfied with anything less than a billion dollars. Here are the questions you should ask yourself to determine your level of need/want/desire:

What Could You Do With An Extra…Per Month?
$100,000 - Make a mortgage payment, payoff a credit card, take a trip to Greece, put $5,000 in savings, buy a big boat and a Cadillac?

$50,000 - Make a mortgage payment, an extra car payment, payoff a credit card, take a trip to London, put $5,000 in savings, and buy a big boat?

$25,000 - Make a mortgage payment, an extra car payment, payoff a credit card, take a trip to Hawaii, put $5,000 in savings, and buy a small boat?

$10,000 - Make a mortgage payment, an extra car payment, payoff a credit card, take a trip to Hawaii, and put $5,000 in savings?

$5,000 - Make a mortgage payment, an extra car payment, payoff a credit card, and take a trip to Hawaii?

$2,000 - Make a mortgage payment, an extra car payment, and payoff a credit card?

$1,000 - Make an mortgage payment?

$500 - Make an extra car payment?

Once, you've figured out what you need to make you happy then you need to figure out what your product mix is to help make your desired earnings. Take a look at the table below. For each desired earning amount you have a number of customers at each price point that you need to sell.

Table #1

Now, let's say that you decided you need to make $1,000 to pay your mortgage so you can use your paycheck to buy other stuff. If you select $1,000 on the table it will show you how many customers you need to make your $1,000 for each price possibility. Let's say that you decided that found a real, tangible product using the methods put forth in AutoBlog Samurai. The affiliate marketer offers you $5 for each product sold where you directed the customer to the seller's site. If you go across to the column for $1, you'll see that you need to have 1000 sales per month to make your money.

Figure #1

Now if you take those 1000 sales and divide them by 30 [Number the day in a month] and you'll find that you need to get 33 people everyday to give you a dollar. Now, as an illustration, you could go to a buy street corner and likely get 33 people to give you a dollar [if you've got a good hook: homeless, vet, homeless vet, etc.]. That's it. That's how easy it is to make an extra mortgage payment every month.

But, you might say, panhandling is hard and I feel dirty for doing it. I don't balme you, I wouldn't feel right about begging either. AutoBlog Samurai provides you with an opportunity to gather the $1 from 33 people for 30 days without the encumbrances of a tin cup.

AutoBlog Samurai provides you with an opportunity to promote products that range from $0.25 to $10 per unit. If you were smart, you could use the handy look up table that I have provided to figure out how many of each item you need to promote to make your magic number.

Tomorrow's blog deals with how to reduce the time spent promoting and increase your time spent spending your new found wealth.

Why you should not buy AutoBlog Samurai

Ok, up until now I have spoken a little bit about information products and the way those items are marketed. I have given you a brief insight to AutoBlog Samurai and its twist on those principles. I have also laid the ground work for why the process should work if executed properly.

What I would like to do now is give you the real [or down] side of AutoBlog Samurai.

AutoBlog Samurai is not for you if you are looking to get rich quick. In fact, if you are looking to get stinking rich quick you need to look elsewhere. It is just not sustainable to give you explosive growth...unless.

Unless you devote your life to it. If you started using the principles being put forth in AutoBlog Samurai and put in 10-12 hours a day you could amass a fortune. The trick is you need to become really good at research so that you don't cheat yourself out of easy money. The good news is that this phase can be abbreviated if you set your sites on a more reasonable mark.

If you are looking to supplement your income [an extra couple hundred bucks per month] this is a great product. This is a really good product, easy to use, and will make you solid money. It's not gonna make you crazy money without work, but it will make you a nice padding if you invest a little time.

After all the smoke clears, if you are willing to invest a little time, you can recoup your investment and make a nice chunk of change. If you're looking to make internet millions there is no easy button.

The next blog post will deal with the math behind AutoBlog Samurai.

If you're ready to get started...AutoBlog Samurai.

Want to Make Millions Selling Information Products?

Are you one of the thousands of people looking to "strike it rich" everyday on the internet? If you are then I completely understand your pain. You've likely shelled out thousands of dollars trying to find that one opportunity that will make money while you sleep. I know, I have too.

Ok, so we are here today to talk about another opportunity to come down the pike. No doubt you read the initial blog posting and know that I am serious about my work as a reviewer of opportunities like this. After all, I've been duped and I've got enough education that I should know better. So you can just go out into the world of internet marketing alone, or I can guide you through some potentially murky waters. You pick.

If you're still reading, I'll assume that you trust that I am trying to present you with a clear, no-nonsense analysis of AutoBlog Samurai. This analysis comes based on my years of experience and good judgment comes from bad experience. On with the show: AutoBlog Samurai Exposed.

Most online or internet marketing is centered on information products. Information products are digitally created products that tell us how to do something, how to make something, how to sell something etc. In fact, they are nothing more than self help books revised. Sure most are helpful and fill a need or meet a desire. For instance, if you are looking to “score with the ladies”, “improve your golf swing”, or “make internet millions” you can certainly find a virtually infinite supply of people who will sell you their guide to how to accomplish your desire.

Yes, it is no secret that information products are out there and some even make money. The truth is, however, the only real way to make the money in information products is to design or create an information product yourself. You would need to devote hundreds of hours of research, another couple of hundred in writing and developing your product, and then another couple of hundred developing the marketing strategy to get your product out there and noticed. All of this work is definitely not the autopilot you were imagining when you started your little internet business.

And then what happens when someone comes along and scoops you. They develop a competing product [or worse yet, steal yours] and now your income has been reduced. You have to go out and invest that time all over again. Researching, developing, marketing; it’s enough to make your head spin.

Oh sure, there are other ways to move information products. You can sell other peoples work. This is called affiliate marketing and simply put : you get paid to promote other people’s products. Just how would that work? Would you make a lot of money selling something that you have no control over? Maybe, but the product would have to be really good or the developer would have to be really sleazy. In fact, the Federal Trade Commission [FTC] has just initiated several rules to make it even harder to make money this way. They have decided to “crack down” on people who are taking advantage of the situation by employing less than savory tactics in online marketing.

Not only do you have the government to contend with, but you have a litany of people online, all over the world, which are looking to do the same thing you are. It is really hard to compete with people selling information products; the noise is almost deafening and unless you are really talented you won’t get far.
This is where AutoBlog Samurai comes in. AutoBlog Samurai is a new realm of internet marketing aimed at putting longstanding practices used by info product marketers to use selling real, tangible products. In fact, you are marketing products that people are looking for everyday.

If you go to you’ll no doubt notice that it is a virtual marketplace. Amazon does not carry stock. Rather it is a portal to the world’s largest bazaar marketplace. AutoBlog Samurai sets you up to compete in that marketplace by capturing the real, low hanging fruit. The methods and strategies expounded by AutoBlog Samurai help you to identify items that sell over and over and over again. They utilize a volume-based approach as opposed to a margin-based. What does this mean to you?
The real magic behind AutoBlog Samurai is that it uses the complete power of internet to help you make money.

You must understand that at any given moment there are millions of people online around the world. Typically, these people are looking for some very common items to buy. People who are looking to sell these items, particularly low cost items, don’t have a lot of money to invest in advertising. It’s just not cost effective when the amount paid for advertising exceeds the value of the product. However, most manufacturers do offer a small residual if you’ll help them.

Most people who are participating in internet marketing will not take on the low paying items. They don’t think they are worthwhile. After all, if you can make $75.00 by selling a product, why would you want to make $1.00 selling something else? The fact is, most of those items that carry a $1.00 residual are also heavy volume movers. This means that you can sell more of those items that you can of the ones bringing $75.00.

AutoBlog Samurai has captured this principle and laid it out in easy to use steps to help you make the money you are looking for. This is the old economics question of “would you rather sell one item at $1,000,000 or 1,000,000 items at $1.00”. Most people chose the one item because they think it’s easier, but realistically it is a lot easier to get consumers to turn loose of $1.00 than $1,000,000.

What is Info Product Killer Exposed?

Over the course of the next few days, I am going to be breaking down on of the most popular money making ventures on the internet today: AutoBlog Samurai.

AutoBlog Samurai is an internet marketing program that steers its clientele away from information products and towards real, tangible products. It does this primarily during the holiday period, but shows how you can maintain profitability during the times of year in which people are not feverishly searching for physical products.

Before we get into the details of the product, its nuts and bolts, and its drawbacks you should know a little about me and why you might think that I am qualified to review a product like AutoBlog Samurai.

I have been doing business online for more than 15 years. In fact, I started way back in 1993 when I was a computer technician in the Air Force. Over the years I have seen fads and scams come and go. I've been sucked in by more than one and I have learned the hard way what works and what does not work. At the time I am writing this, I am currently completing my MBA @ UT Tyler and I am using internet marketing in some of the case studies I am doing for school.

Therefore, you are getting the benefit of my experience, my wasted dollars, and my education when I review products like AutoBlog Samurai. Now, in the interest of fairness, I must fully disclose to you that I do get paid a commission on the product if you purchase it. That's just a fact of life and it is what allows me the opportunity to delve into products like this and spend my time reviewing them for you.

After all, you could just read someone else's review, someone who doesn't tel you of their affiliation, and be subject to whatever scam it put before you. My goal is to give you my honest and learned opinion of the product that I am reviewing. That way, when I go to bed at night, I won't lose any sleep because I have been truthful in my review.

Ok, enough about me, now on to the product review: AutoBlog Samurai.
