    Just like most other people that try to make money online, I’ve had a long, expensive journey.

    It’s been about 7 solid years since I first got started, and over the years I’ve been through all sorts of courses, bought softwares, invested in high ticket mentoring, attended live events…you name it.

    So, if you’re looking for a really simple way to make sustainable, passive income on the Internet, I want to cut your learning curve in half.

    Now, there’s about a million different ways to make money online, and the method that I specialize in is SEO.

    SEO stands for search engine optimization, which is just a fancy way of saying I content stuff for specific keywords on Google.

    That’s how I get my traffic.

    Now, currently I make over six figures a year doing affiliate SEO, and I don’t have clients.

    It’s just me.

    I’m a one man show.

    Now, if you know a little bit about SEO or have been through other courses, you may have already clicked away from this page or hit the back button :)

    Why?

    Because, the way SEO is traditionally taught, it’s complicated, expensive, slow…and that turns a lot of people away.

    But I’ll tell you right now, I’m not some super smart nerd.

    So, that’s definitely not the approach I take in the way I teach it.

    There are a few moving parts to SEO, but if they’re explained in the right way, it’s actually really simple.

    And the reason I love SEO is because it passes my 3 S’s test

    SIMPLE
    SCALABLE
    SUSTAINABLE


    My approach to SEO is basically something I can do a little each day and consistently scale up my income over time.

    I’m not sure about you, but that’s exactly the kind of opportunity I was looking for when I first started trying to make money online.

    I could talk about SEO all day and sit here and try to sell you on why my training is amazing, but that’s really what the sales page is for :)

    I’m just here to introduce you to my offer.

    It’s called SEO Affiliate Domination, and the goal of the course is get you to a place where you’re consistently earning $100-$200/day in passive affiliate commissions.

    I know that's not a ridiculous number like $10,000,000...but in all my years in online marketing, most people don't even care about becoming a millionaire...

    They just want to be FREE

    And for most people (in America at least) that magic "freedom number" is some around $100-$200/month.

    Now, I'm not claiming you're going to make $100-$200/month guaranteed, so don’t get that part confused.

    That’s the goal.

    Obviously you can make much much more than that, if you put in the effort.

    But you have to take action.

    You’re definitely not going to make a dime if you just buy the course and then get distracted by ten other flashy products.

    But, if you follow what I teach inside, and are disciplined and consistent, I won’t let you fail.

    I’m not going to jump through the computer and push buttons for you, but you’ll have access to me to get any questions you have answered, and you’ll also have access to an active Facebook group of other people just like you that you can ask questions to and collaborate with.

    My favorite thing about SEO is that it’s pretty much infinitely scalable…

    Which means even if one million people purchased my training, implemented what I show them, and made enough to earn a full-time income…

    There would still be plenty of opportunity for me to also be making a million or more a year.

    So, competition is pretty much irrelevant (at least with the methods I teach)

    Here are a few ways the SEO strategies you will learn inside the training can be used for

    • E-commerce
    • Affiliate Marketing
    • Local SEO
    • Building Brand Authority
    • MLM/Network Marketing
    • Launch Jacking
    • Video Marketing
    • Client SEO

    **Now, I want to be super clear that my methods are certainly not push button...but THEY WORK**

    I get paid traffic experts reaching out to me nearly every week expressing how jealous they are of my passive affiliate income. Even though they may make far more money than me running an e-commerce store or with Facebook ads, they know that most of my income I don’t have to continue to work for each month. Whether I take a week off or an entire month, I’m pretty much going to be making the same income month after month, due to all the assets I’ve built up that are working for me.

    So, if any of what I’ve typed above is intriguing to you, I encourage you to click the link below to learn more.

    Hi @Greg Jeffries

    I'm not sure if this is a good idea but I'm gonna say it anyway with the intention of creating a win-win.

    I'm building websites for entrepreneurs. Specifically for online entrepreneurs (because offering websites for everyone was not a good idea). Do you think it would be a good idea for your students to implement what they learn from you by selling this service I offer?

    In return I can provide a big discount on my product/service so it can be easier for your students to promote it (they will have a coupon) and for each sale they make they will get $100 as affiliates. The price of the product is $1,000 or $700. With the coupon, they can offer this half price.

    The effort they would need to do for this would be minimal. For example they could write an article on their website once which they can optimize for SEO and get paid from the conversion from that article.

    If you have a better idea to make this work I'd be happy to discuss it.

    Thanks a lot

    If your business works so great, why do you sell your course?

    If you are making passive six figures as a one man show - what stops you from hiring a team, giving your employees your method and scaling your current business to 2000€/day?
    Why not scale something you already know how to do (affiliate SEO) - instead of starting something completly new (creating a course)?


    I'm not trying to run down your marketplace ad - I just would like to have a bit more transparency about your motives.

    I always get a bit sceptical if I see these business-in-a-box courses.
    I'm not saying your course is one of those - but I am just making sure you are not a BRO Marketer ;)

    SEO is pretty much infinitely scalable and I can't make all the money that's possible with it now matter how hard I tried.

    Obviously I don't need people's money, since I'm already doing well, but one thing I've learned over the years is that when people pay, they tend to pay attention.

    If I just gave this stuff away for free almost no one would take action.

    So, my ulterior motive is simply to help more people buy their freedom through the strategies I teach, the same as I've been able to do.

    Thanks for pointing out a typo :)

    $100-$200/day is the correct goal.

    Nope, I'm just a scammer and a lier :)

    JK - of course SEO works.

    It always has and always will.

    If you get how SEO really works (as I lay out inside my training), you'll understand that there's not much that has changed since the beginning of the Internet.

    Is that a serious question? SEO does work. At my company it accounts for just as much traffic as paid campaigns. You just don't have the same control... but SEO should always be part of a strategy if you want to build a long-term asset.

    With that said:

    I'm sort of wondering the same thing. I just figured that maybe he is passionate about SEO and wants to teach it?

    I have no opinion on the OP, but I'm sorry, this is just dumb. You really can't think of a reason why someone would create and sell a course? Really?

    How about the fact that selling a course is a lot more lucrative and scalable than hiring and managing a team to continue doing SEO to sell other people's products?

    Should we also be critical of @Andy Black for selling a course?

    Why do entrepreneurs sell anything of value? Is selling information an evil thing in your mind?

    Why is MJ selling books instead of keeping that information all to himself and creating more and more businesses?

    You should expect to be met with some skepticism here, so here it is:

    Okay, so you're another guy who's trying to make money teaching what you are (allegedly) successful doing (sans proof). How is your course any better than the dozens on JVZoo or Warrior forum?

    I can't comment on the course as SEO isn't my bag.

    Some thoughts:

    1) I had yet another email today from a 15 year old who told me his life story and that he loved my music. He Googled for "contact andy black". I am literally going to have to put a photo on my blog header so people know "this is not the Andy Black you're looking for".

    2) I've worked for clients spending over $100k a day on AdWords. They also had SEO teams.

    3) I've worked with clients who have a significant monthly spend on SEO to maintain position for search terms driving calls to their 200 person call centre.

    4) I personally have a course because people regularly ask for one, *and* I feel I have something to offer people even though there's a lot of courses out there.

    5) People who buy a course are unlikely to hire me. DIY folks aren't DFY folks. I like helping both sets of folks.

    6) I've not mentioned this before, but people who have been through my course (and show talent and have similar values) are people I might be able to outsource to or hire.

    7) I produce content as I go along. A lot of people have asked to look over my shoulder as I do things. If I can work out how to do it without giving too much away, I could save them a lot of time and money.

    8) While I'll save my one-to-one coaching with team members, I can still add a lot of value at scale by selling a course.

    9) I heard of an urban myth that a call centre with a few hundred call centre staff suddenly shed most them because they lost position on Google and the phones stopped ringing.

    10) I *know* a business that was spending €120k+ on AdWords that had to shed most of their 35 AdWords specialists because Google banned them from AdWords.

    11) No matter the method of getting visitors to your site, you really want to turn them into repeat buyers (aka customers). Build a list of customers and you're in business.

    12) Paid Search and SEO are two sides of the same coin - they both fall under the umbrella of Search Engine Marketing (SEM). I like to do Paid Search first and get the data to determine which search terms to rank for.

    13) SEOs call what people type into Google "keywords". Paid search guys *should* call them "search terms".

    14) There's a LOT of people spending a LOT of money each year on courses. I've no idea how many of them complete the courses, and how many take action on them. It used to bother me. I'm less bothered now.

    15) There's an Andy Black that does SEO. I'm not that Andy Black either.

    Is this gray/white/black hat stuff? How susceptible is it to changes in the ranking algorithms?

    Can you provide any technical details on what you're teaching, without giving away any valuable content for free?

    Oh I can come up with a lot of reasons.

    **He doesn't like managing employees
    **He enjoys the direct influence he has on peoples lifes
    **He does not want to sell other people's product but his own
    **He is not passionate about SEO
    **He does not like the day to day job of running an SEO (agency)
    **He likes teaching more than doing
    **He knows the businesses boundaries, is open about them, but wants to have more

    And so on.

    All of this are valid reasons - who am I to judge?


    What's not ok is to know about the busineses boundaries, but not be open about them.
    To sell the SEO business as the best solution, even though you know it is not the best solution - so you switch to selling courses instead.

    It's not ok to sell the business as the perfect model, even though you now it is dying out - so you switch to selling courses instead.



    I think you get my point.



    This is not directed to @Greg Jeffries - from what I've seen (while scanning over your post), you are open about both possibilities and boundaries. Plus you've stated your reasons - thank you for the answer!

    I hope the marketplace ad works out, sorry for hijacking the thread with this post.

    This is the question everyone asks. i used to ask it too until I kept getting the same questions again and again : "How did you quit your job and write full-time. Most freelancers are broke!"

    At some point, it only makes sense to start selling your knowledge rather than just your skill. I'm doing it now as a second income.

    Not to mention, every freakin' successful person alive writes a book at some point. Mark Cuban's short book, "How to Win" is one of my favorite books. Is Mark really a fraud for selling a book? He's a billionaire...he's sharing his knowledge to others and making a buck off it.

    Maybe MJ's a fraudster? If he's so successful, why would he write a TMF? Scam.

    Are there people who sell courses they know nothing about the subject matter? Uh, yeah. But, those are sniffed out pretty quick because nowadays it's pretty easy to tell who's "been there" and who "only wishes they'd been there."

    I'd betting MJ vetted Greg (the OP) at least a little bit especially since Greg hasn't posted much on this forum. (at least I would hope so :) )

    I invite you to go spend thousands of dollars on SEO courses on JVZoo, Warrior Forum, etc. (low, mid, and high ticket) then come back and buy mine and you can tell me :)

    The point is, I've already done that, and I've consolidated all the best nuggets into my course (in a way that's easily digestible for non-techy nerds).

    So, if you're skeptical, by all means, knock yourself out and go pick up all those other courses that you see for sale, then let me know how that goes for you :)

    The core strategy revolves around concentrating on long tail keywords...with a twist.

    I teach you the basics inside, and then I share several different ways to apply and scale what you learn.

    Some methods I share inside are 100% white hat, while some others may be considered a little less sustainable long term, but they still work, and will probably always work...just not forever and ever for that particular property.

    I try to expose you to several different ways to apply the same core strategy so you'll have many different angles and methods to achieve the same result.

    I don't like the idea of limiting you to a single method. Because that specific method might become less effective in the future, however, there may be 10 other different variations of that method that you can still use to get that same result.

    Hopefully that makes sense.

    Just to be clear. MJ doesn't vet marketplace ads or forum members. As with everything, we're all responsible for our own due diligence.

    Hi Greg,

    I had a glance at your offer and I'm always a bit sceptical when I see people offering to teach other people how to make money online. Few questions:

    On your IMSource website you reference your income statements.

    Looking at the list of products that are mentioned there, it seems to be all of the products that you mention in your guides/how-to's such as clickfunnels, clickmagick, udemy etc
    Do you only make money through these affiliate programs?

    Your website for SEO Affiliate Domination was registered in may but you only seem to have 3 indexed pages and no SEO presence?

    I'm sure every other SEO course creator would respond the same as you did. "You could spend thousands on other courses, or you could buy mine!" As Jim Gaffigan would say, "It's so simple!" If you think that's a USP, it isn't. I have purchased dozens of courses over the years. I'm not trying to be a dick, I just think your pitch looks, sounds and feels like every other pitch.:smile:

    Listen guys, some of you are just really dog sh*tting on OP.

    The course is $495 USD.

    Instead of putting this guy through the ringer, pony up the $495 and try it out. If it's sh*t, do a chargeback or ask for a refund and THEN come here and lay the smack down.

    If you can't afford $495, don't buy the course.

    If $495 is too much for you, this isn't your course.

    However, don't passively aggressively start running this guy in the ringer about why he sells the course and such. If you pay with Amex or Paypal, you can get your money back really easily and then you can talk sh*t if the course really is bad.


    I've been doing marketing online for damn near 20 years.
    • I've held some of the top spots in SEO for thousands and thousands of super competitive terms
    • I've spend more money on PPC per month than 10 people's average yearly salary combined, and made it all back plus some
    • I run a SaaS specifically about SEO with Google and have helped over 5 figures worth of digital marketers get a leg up on their competition

    If I came out with a course, it's because I want to make MORE money or reach more people which equals more money.

    Maybe I don't wanna just rank for X terms in Google now, Maybe I'm tried of being an affiliate and low man on the totem pole although I could make millions doing it and getting bored with it.

    Sometimes you want to gain authority too so you can speak at events or expand your reach.


    In the end, who cares?

    Pay the money, evaluate, and then take action. There are ways to get your precious money back if you don't like it.

    I get taking a sh*t in other threads on this forum, but doing it to someone's BST is sh*tty in itself.
