How To Make Money Affiliate Marketing If You Are NOT An Expert – Beginner Friendly!

Miles here, in this video
you are going to understand what to do when you’re not an expert or when you’re not an
authority on the subject, but you want to still grow a business online. You know, it
definitely gets easier to build a business online when you are the actual foremost expert
in whatever it is you’re doing. But there’s a large volume of you guys out there who you’re
not the expert yet. So the question is, what do I do? And that’s exactly what we’ll cover
here today. The core question I want you to ask yourself and then we’ll get into a specific
tactic later, but the question I want you to ask yourself right now is what are you
committed to becoming in the next three to five years? Because even if you’re not an
expert right now, are you committed to becoming an expert on something in the next three to
five years? Now, this could be very interestingly aligned
with your life situation. Let’s say you have a child who’s 13 years old and they are absolutely
infatuated with volleyball. You’re their volleyball coach. You kind of as a family, eat, sleep,
breathe volleyball, and you know, for the next four or five years this really good chance
you’re going to be involved in the sport of volleyball as a coach, as a coach, parent,
et Cetera, et cetera. Bingo. You are on your way to becoming one of the, potentially for
most best coaches in the world or in your area, at least on the game of volleyball,
and since your kids are going through it and you’re doing it, why not really get into the
game and understand the mechanics of the game and why not become the best that you can add
that maybe you’re really into racing drones. Maybe you’re really into horseback riding.
Maybe you’re really into yoga. I don’t know what that is about you, but oftentimes when
you don’t already have 10 years of expertise to pull from, it’s more about what are you
becoming. Then, as I mentioned earlier, there’s a tactic you can implement, right? So how
do you as, let’s use this volleyball coach example that totally popped into my mind randomly.
How does this kind of individual whose kids interested in volleyball, they want to help,
they want to participate and maybe make a business around this. How do you actually
learn more about the game of volleyball? And obviously researching is a big part of it,
right? The library system in the United States of America is absolutely amazing. The access
to books completely free in most communities. Let’s go ahead and mention the Google, which
gives us access to all of the information that is digitally available in the world,
the biggest index in the world. So the access to the information is not the
problem. That’s not the hurdle. It’s the commitment of purpose. And then it’s like, well, what
do you do when you find the information? Well, there’s this theory and something I’ve realized
recently that writing is not necessarily as much about communicating an idea as it is
about learning. And this is a really, really big distinction that hit me last year and
it came from this book here and it’s called thinking on paper. And the premise of this
book is that writing and the act of writing is actually your way of learning, right? Let
me repeat that. When you write things out, you go read the books, you research, you researched
the top new articles on a topic, and you take the time to write out an outline to fill out
that outline and write a comprehensive essay on everything that you’ve learned. The actual act of writing is learning, not
you communicating. Therefore, if you move forward and you commit to writing three new
great blog posts each and every week on that topic, relevant to what you’re becoming and
you just write, write, write. This by default means that you will be learning more and more
about this topic with each, with each and every post that you publish, which means over
the course of three years, writing three posts per week, that’s 150 weeks times three posts
a week. That’s 450 posts. You will have written at that point in time from the amount of content
that you’ve consumed and read and researched. In order to write that volume of content,
you will have read more than just about anyone else on the topic. You will have published
more on just about anyone on that topic. You will be in the top 1% of the most knowledgeable
people in the world on that subject and you have a gigantic credibility indicator on your
side. That is a massive blog. That is a resource.
You mix this with the two simple skills of keyword research and the basics of on page
e o which I teach for free here on my channel. I’ll have the links to those videos down in
the description of this video if you need those. That’s it. That really, truly is the
recipe for success. I really recommend this book thinking on paper. It really opened me
up. It’s a Va Howard Phd and j h Barton. That’s who wrote that book. Highly recommend that
one for you, but ultimately understanding or thinking critically about this right here.
I’m going to sum it up one time real quick. Number one, what are you committed to becoming,
right? What are you committed to? Are you committed to becoming one of the best drone
racers in the world? Are you committed to becoming someone who spends all day, every
day with our horses? Because you just love your horses that much?
Whatever it is that you’re committed to becoming, that’s your starting point. That’s your entrance
point. That’s the affinity with this niche, with this world, with this subject matter,
ultimately with an audience of people similar to you who are looking to get better at that
thing. Then you commit to the process of writing. Now, if you’re like miles, but you said, I
need to follow what’s in my DNA and writing is not in my DNA, great. Maybe you just write
out the outlines and maybe you write out and fill out these great outlines. You do the
research, you write out the outlines and you perform it in a video. Well. When you do that
and you pass that video transcription along with your written out outline that you created
on a topic over to your virtual assistant, they are going to create a way better blog
post for you on that subject. Then if you just turn on the camera and shoot
from the hip, maybe you’re into podcasting and you’d rather just talk it out. Great.
Again, you start with the research side of things. You write out the outline, which is
essentially where your show is going to go when you have somebody make your show notes,
you passed them the outline, your show notes get better. Your wordpress blog grows with
great written content that you’re not producing. Ultimately. Again, you are creating helpful
content for others through the process of learning about this yourself. This is a really,
really big key and the final tip for you. If you really want to become extremely knowledgeable
on a specific subject beyond what everyone else is doing. First of all, you’ve got to
do everything I just talked about, but then go to Google alerts. It’s forward
slash alerts and enter your top keyword phrases, right? So if it’s volleyball, volleyball’s strategy,
volleyball tactics, volleyball coaching, Volleyball News, you enter that into Google alerts and
you have Google alerts send you an email every time a new article is published about your
topic than you read said article. This is your finger on the pulse of your marketplace
in the here and now. You still need to understand all of that old school knowledge that’s been
passed down from coach after coach, after coach in the world of volleyball, the game
that’s probably been played for, I don’t know, 50 years, 100 I have no clue, right? So you
need to understand the history, the backstory, what worked, but you also need to have your
finger on the pulse of exactly where the industry, where the market, where the sport, where,
whatever it is you’re in is going today. Google alerts is an extremely powerful tool for this. You can have email you once a day, all of
the new articles on your subject matter, and as you read through those, it’s going to give
you more ideas about content ideas. You’re gonna mix what you’re learning about the here
and now with what you learn from the books and the way in the past. Then you’re going
to synthesize this and you’re going to learn it all at a very deep level because you’re
going to write out, your outlines are going to write out your blog posts. You’re going
to perform your podcast or your videos. This is how you become an authoritative expert
on the topic. It takes time, but it is an absolutely proven path. You can embark from
here and go any direction that you want. So choose one that’s going to be fun. Choose
one that actually uplifts you in your life because that makes this whole process fun
and easy. We’re getting to that point in life where
they say, you’ll never work a day in your life if you do something you love. I agree
with that. If you love volleyball, go that route. If you love drones, go that route,
do what is in your heart and it would be fun and it’ll feel easier than if you’re just
forcing yourself to go into a niche because you think there’s money in the niche, you’ll
never succeed long term, and that sort of a niche. I hope you have enjoyed this video.
I hope you’ve found this to be helpful. If you have any questions, the comments for that
I do pop in as often as I can. My time is quite limited, so if I don’t get back to,
I apologize, thumbs up, engage, like share, do what you do. I appreciate you and I look
forward to connecting with you on the next video. Until then, be well.

  17. Jamie G says:

    Love this. Many moons ago I wanted to break into the financial markets as a career path. I found a company I wanted to work for, started reading through their website. product disclosure statement and learning about their products and services. After 5 failed job interviews (at the same company) over the space of 2 years, eventually I got a chance (Thanks to the GFC, more staff was needed). I didn't finish high school, had no significant qualifications and within around 6 months of being there, people started asking me questions. This continued until I became a subject matter expert and was the go to guy for info on anything markets related.

    By that time, I had written notes on absolutely everything I could find regarding the company, their software and the markets in general…

    This video really resonates with me as I have used that formula before with great success.

    Many thanks Miles!

  18. Chet James - Affiliate Marketing Guides says:

    The entire concept of just taking an ungodly amount of action is how I found success. I failed on 2-3 projects at first and started overthinking it all wondering if maybe I just didn't have the right skillset, bad luck, got in at the wrong time etc.

    Essentially that failure filled me with fear.

    All of that was just me expecting way too much way too quickly and not failing enough.

    That quote from the IBM founder on your previous video and the segment on your podcast pretty much sums it all up-

    "In order to increase your rate of success you need to double your rate of failure."

    Thanks Miles!

  29. hvh bot says:

    I have some questions, if anyone can answer, i'd be happy. I'm pretty new so if some of this stuff sounds dumb then you know why

    1. Is Page Authority a good estimate that keyword's difficulty? so if you google a keyword and the highest page authority within the first 5 results is say, 27 it's pretty easy to over take right?

    2. What does "easy to over take" mean? should I be excepting within a week of creating my website, putting a few SEO blog posts about something to over take that keyword's highest page authority 27 within the 5 results of google? If it's really dependent on something other then page authority then what?

    3. Is it possible to make single page website, that target specific keyword? Or what you really want to do is find a niche, find very easily targeted keywords related to your niche with good search volumes and hope of them gets a good ranking on google? Is it a BIG gamble to make a single page website focusing one keyword?

    4. If you're producing SEO HQ blog posts, when should you see some sort of results? First week, month, few months?

    5. Is it possible to make your money back + then some within one month of hardwork writing SEO HQ blog posts? Money back from the Domain, server hosting.. ect..

    I'll probably add some other questions as I think of them

    Thanks for answering if you did

    Sharing your journey within your chosen niche – that is exactly the method I am using to grow my online business. You explained this so well. I can vouch that it works.. I created a dirt bike enthusiast website in 2006 – sharing my existing and new-found knowledge on the subject – and grew that into a massive website with hundreds of pages and over 50'000 visitors a month within about 5 years. I learned many things from that experience… including that you must put the blinders on and block out all distractions on your chosen path. There are a lot of people trying their best to convince you that their 'method' or 'strategy' is better. But if you keep jumping from ship to ship you'll never achieve anything of long-lasting value. Have a business plan in place with a clear vision of what success looks like when you 'make it'… and then do the work… consistently and persistently. My 10 cents.
