Few months back I attended a digital marketing event in Hyd, India. SEO was a hot topic there. I know many people making a killing doing just SEO with Adsense or sending traffic with SEO to affiliate review sites. I used to do it myself few years back when I started.
There was no other for me to make money online then. I got a free blogspot domain, wrote 4-5 articles around a product review blog, spend nights and nights building manual backlinks, ranked them on Google and make a nice income for next few months.
I built 3 of those sites and would easily do $1500-$2000/m and was certainly planning to do more.
But one morning everything CHANGED! Something was very strange that morning…
I had made no affiliate sales, I had very less traffic to my websites. While I was scratching my head and wondering what just happened.
It was another Google Update I had no idea about and 80% of my income was lost overnight.
That was Nov or Dec 2012.
Fast forward to May 2014…
I woke up one morning and something was very different again. I wanted to edit few of my product pages on one of my website.
To my surprise, when I entered the URL into my browser, all I got was an empty website.
I tried it with my other websites and they were all blank. I logged into my hosting and there were no files, no folders. OH MY GOD!
Someone got inside my hosting through a malware and deleted all my websites. I had no backups and there was absolutely no way of getting my sites back.
How would you feel if the same happened to you? Especially if SEO is your only traffic source?
You know how I felt…
NOTHING! I was sad but not mad!
I didn’t lost 80% of my income this time. I didn’t even tried to get those site up quickly.
You know WHY?
“I had build an email list. I had a list of loyal subscribers and my whole business was based on them. I didn’t had to rely on Google SEO or any other traffic source.”
Whenever I need to make money. I just needed to mail my subscribers, give them some good content and recommend a good product. And I was making over $10k+ doing just that and when my sites were deleted or hacked, it didn’t affected my income at all.
Sounds awesome right? It is and…
If you’re not building a list, then you are not building a stable business.
If you’re not building a list, and you’re just at the mercy of Google then it’s not a long-term business.
If you’re not building a list, you are leaving tons of money on the table.
SEO is a great source of FREE traffic, you must do it. But make sure you’re building your email list with it.
All I want to say is, if you’ve not yet started building your list. START NOW, because there is no better time to do it.
This is how I build a 6-figure per year online business and this is how I make money each and every day.
