 SPI 032: How to Buy a Website with Chris Guthrie | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:05:56

In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast we welcome back (for the third time!) Chris Guthrie of MakeMoneyOnTheInternet.com. The first time he was on the show in SPI Session #10 - we talked about niche sites and his amazing success promoting products as an affiliate for Amazon.com. In 2010 he sold over a million dollarsof product and collected a generous commission as a result, which is awesome. The last time he was on the podcast we had a little back and forth discussion in SPI Session #22 about affiliate marketing - tips, tricks and real life experiences from the both of us, which was really fun too. This time, however, we hardly talk about affiliate marketing at all. In fact, we spend a good 60 minutes chatting about something completely different that Chris has recently been focusing on to grow his net worth - something that I've become very interested in as well, especially because it has to do with a major goal I have in 2012. So what's this session about? Buying websites. Buying a website means that you obviously have to spend a little bit of money, but think about this... Instead of starting a site from scratch, developing it and getting it to a point where it's generating an income, which as we all know takes some time and money to do,  you can "fast forward" and buy a web property that is already earning money. If you can improve the earnings of that site (and even if you don't), that site becomes a very valuable asset that can continue to put money (and for some sites, passive income) in your pocket for a long period of time. Of course, there's a lot that goes into buying a website, which is why I wanted to pick Chris's brain before I dive into this myself. In this session Chris and I cover: Where to find websites that are for sale (and no, Chris's primary location is not Flippa.com, although we talk about that marketplace too). The criteria Chris uses to determine if a website is worth buying, plus signs to look out for. How to determine the right price to offer for a website, including market standards for different scenarios. How much potential is really worth (you can guess this one). How to not get scammed when buying a website. How to pay for a website that you buy off a marketplace. How transfer of domain and ownership works (I drill down Chris here - I had no idea how this worked before). Examples of successful buys that Chris has made in the past, including the purchase price and domain (and what those sites are earning now). Examples of a not-so-successful buy that left Chris out 4 figures and what we can learn from his experience.

 SPI 030: Pat’s Top 30 Tips for Successful Affiliate Marketing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 54:21

In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast, I go over my top 30 tips for successful affiliate marketing, which involve a wide range of topics - all the way from the approach and mindset of affiliate marketing, to the little details of where links should be placed and how often. As many of you know, especially if you've recently glanced at my monthly income reports, affiliate marketing has become a major portion of my earnings over the past year, which is why I wanted to end the year with a hold-nothing-back type of session that will definitely help you and your online business one way or another - whether you already promote products as an affiliate or not. There are 30 different tips here - all based on my own experience - so I hope you enjoy! Oh, and you'll notice that during the session, my voice starts to "go away" or change a bit. The reason is because I've been sick the last few days and I guess my vocal chords were just not ready for an hour long recording session yet. All good though - I got through it and the information is there for you. If you're at work and can't listen to audio or you just aren't into podcasts, I recommend you open up the transcript at the bottom of this post so you can read through the tips instead.

 SPI 029: How to Conduct (and Master) a Webinar with Lewis Howes from LewisHowes.com | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:39

In this session of SPI Podcast I have the privilege of welcoming Lewis Howes from LewisHowes.com to the show, an ex-football player turned entrepreneur who many people know for his success with utilizing LinkedIn to grow his business from scratch. He actually published two books about his success with LinkedIn not too long ago. This session isn't about LinkedIn though - it's all about webinars - what they are, why they work and the best way to approach and conduct one. Lewis is a master at conducting webinars. This I know because I've seen him in action, and he's amazing - and his results are amazing too. He kindly shares his results and all of the techniques, tips and tricks that he uses during this interview. I've actually conducted a few webinars before with some degree of success, however after chatting with Lewis (and actually jotting notes down during the interview), I realized I wasn't even scratching the surface of what was possible. In this session you'll hear Lewis describe: Details from his first webinar experience which generated $6,300 (without a finished product to sell). Why webinars are the best way to conduct business online. How to get more people to sign up and attend your webinar, which are two completely different things. The various types of software that can be used to host a webinar, including some free options that I hadn't really thought of before. The structure of a webinar that works best (aka - the 4 Phases of a webinar) The one thing you should absolutely do with your audience before your webinar even begins. What to do (and what not to do) if you plan on pitching something. The top ways to engage with your audience within a webinar. The things you should do after a webinar is over. Plus much more... The recommended paid software to use for webinars that both Lewis and I use is GoToWebinar. You can try it with unlimited use for free for 30-days by clicking on my affiliate link here.
