Hi Optimistic and RCubed, just letting you know I've read your posts and I strongly recommend that you start with affiliate marketing before making your own product.
It is an easier way to get started, you get to learn how to market properly first, before worrying about the other hassles of product development, getting a great sales page, customer support, setting up pay and affiliate systems and so forth. Not to mention it's the same way that most millionaire internet marketers, including myself, got started.
I am in India at the moment, and will be home on the 9th, it will take me about a week to get a few of my new videos online. I am aiming to have them all online by the 24th. Touch wood.
I can see a strong strong need for the roadmaps and mind set lessons especially.
Rcubed you are right about ppc's being the fasted way to getting a return on your investment. I'd like to add that 1 page review sites are the best quick site to bang up to start getting a return on investment from pay per clicks. Squeeze pages don't work as well in the short term, if that's what you are interested in, they are more a long term strategy because you can keep selling you your subscribers over and over again.
So if you have the money for google adsense, I strongly recommend that you choose a few products to promote, and then build review sites around them. Suggested topics that I know work well are: model trains, baby sign language, and anti-spyware and there are hundreds of others. See the Affilorama.com affiliate program directory, there are tens of thousands to choose from.
I'm in India right now (on my way home from England), I'll be home on the 9th, and be back at work recording new lessons on the 10th.
There is also a very very exciting addition to traffic travis that is underway and will be online in the next few weeks also. Stay tuned! This will help PPC users no end.
All the best,
