    OEP 009 SEO Affiliate Domination with Internet Marketing Expert Greg Jeffries

    I am delighted to welcome Internet Marketing Expert Greg Jeffries to the Optimistic Entrepreneur Podcast.  Having seen the success Greg was having (he publishes his income reports), I was very keen to get him on to the podcast as a guest to ask him about his marketing strategies.
    Greg is a very successful internet marketer who is focusing on Affiliate marketing using very focused SEO and Long Tail Keywords.
    In June 2015 Greg made $1,548.08

    [In the show reel, I have provided a summary of his earnings over the last two years by affiliate programme so that you can see exactly where he has been making his money and this may help you to decide where to focus your efforts.  Incidentally, I have done the same with another internet marketer, Mark Woodward.]
    There is something seriously smart going on and I wanted to find out more.
    Greg is very open about his approach and helps us to understand why is affiliate marketing business is so successful. Greg is very much focused on Long Tail SEO for his marketing activities. 
    In particular, Greg focuses on Transactional keywords (intent) and by going after the long tail, he has less competition which greatly improves his organic search results and ranking in Google.
    Greg has a very systematic approach
    He understands SEO He identifies niches and acquires domains with niche keywords He creates a niche website He identifies the competitive and profitable keywords associated with that niche using Keyword.io (I also use Market Samurai) He gets his on page SEO right He gets his off page SEO right, particularly with some neat back linking strategies He tracks his progress with Google Analytics He identifies and promotes affiliate products, particularly identifying attractive products in Affiliate networks He builds and cultivates an email list. He scales his content distribution Find Out More About Greg

I have done a similar exercise for successful internet marketer Mark Woodward, summarising his earnings in 2017.

Can’t buy Dave Espino’s course!

Please help! I went to both of Dave Espino’s links to buy his course. One redirects me somewhere else and his personal website shows no products. Do you know where else I can get it. I checked Amazon too and it’s not ethereal either. Thanks in advance!

John IS my first resource for all things online learning

John has covered just about every aspect of planning, creating, and selling online courses on Udemy, other platforms like Thinkific, Fedora, etc…. and everything else related, like a course to a Amazon book and visa versa. These podcasts are just saturated with useful info on just about every major topic a instructor could hope to learn. Just listening today as he interviewed Robert Scot (Dr. Youtube) and I was like “Wow” Robert just gave us every critical technique and secret to ranking your videos at the top of youtube AND google… Then his podcast with Alun Hill was epic and chock full of amazing marketing tips for selling your online course with Alun’s no nonsense style… and on, and on… Only podcast in this particular genre right now I think. Next John, I love if you could interview Chris Lema and/or Brian Clark and pick their brains on the Rainmaker Pro LMS, maybe Chris Brogan? David Siteman? Miguel Hernandez, Phil Ebiner? I’m sure you have a list too … Keep up the good work John! -James Forno P.S. Udemy should make your podcast a suggested routine for all instructors .

Superb content, delivered with verve

WOW! Over my life, I've created dozens of courses and books, and have edited or overseen the development of thousands more. I also listen, off and on, to many different podcasts. So, I came to John's podcast with a bit of a jaded outlook, thinking there probably wasn't much I didn't know. And, WOW, again. I am learning with every single episode and I am now binging as fast as I can. This baby is an A+++.
