This is the first step of the guide you were promised on my landing page: How To Live The Internet Lifestyle.
There are really only two things you need to know to make money online:
1. How to get traffic – this is easy. very easy. I’ll save this part for last.
2. How to build a profitable sales funnel – this is hard, but lucky for you, this guide will show you exactly how to build a profitable sales funnel.
In this guide, I’m going to use one of my personal funnels as an example, so you’ll see what products I’m using this funnel to sell, but feel free to customize it to fit whatever you’re already selling. It’ll be easier for you to make money with this guide if you decide to sell the same products I’m selling, but it’ll work for you either way.
Before we begin this process, I want you to allow yourself to imagine making sales every day on autopilot, imagine opening your email and having a long list of emails telling you that you have been earning commissions on autopilot since the last time you checked your email account. Imagine how it’s going to feel when you tell your friend or your spouse that you finally made some money online.
If it’s your first time, imagine the look on everyone’s faces when you earn your first commissions from your internet business. Aren’t there a few people who have ridiculed you in the past? Who didn’t believe in you? Imagine shoving it in their faces. Proving them wrong.
Now, the exciting part, allow yourself to imagine logging in to your bank account and seeing that you made $500 a day every day for the last week. Money deposited to your bank account. What will that feel like? How will that affect your life? Will you reinvest all of it or will you buy yourself or spouse a gift? Will you save some to pay taxes? Go on vacation? Put it in to your kids college fund?
That part is important, the more you imagine these results the more likely you are to actually go through this whole guide and start marketing, start earning commissions. Train your brain to focus on what you want to, experience it in your imagination ahead of time, over and over again, to increase your chances of experiencing it in real life.
Your sales funnel is the difference between your success and failure online. Don’t let anyone tell you anything different. To really have success online, you’ve got to be able to turn an advertisement in to a commission payment, and you simply won’t be able to do that with a bad funnel.
The main difference between this funnel, and the average broke marketers funnel, is that you’ll be developing a relationship with your prospects and helping them out by giving them some cool stuff for free before pitching them.
Allow yourself to imagine having a magical money multiplying machine that any time you want to increase your income, you put in a few dollars, and get twice as many (or more!) back out.
Your sales funnel is going to be your magical money multiplying machine. Once it’s set up properly, you just do some advertising to get traffic to your funnel (or buy traffic from my personal super secret ‘done for you’ traffic source), and commissions come back out the other side. With the products that I sell, you’ll be slowly building up a bunch of small residual commission payments, you’ll be getting large lump sum commission payments, once in a while a customer will decide to become an affiliate which means that in exchange for finding another affiliate the company will pay you a small over ride commission whenever they make a sale.
The overall goal is to design the funnel in a way that you’ll be able to break even on your advertising on a monthly basis so that after you get through the first commission cycle you’ll be able to start scaling your business by reinvesting your commissions and growing your marketing budget.
This part can get a little dry, but pay attention, you really need to know this stuff. If you master this, you can make another magical money multiplying machine whenever you want to.
I’m going to define a few different pieces of the funnel, and I’m going to show you the best way to put them together. A sales funnel is just a series of webpages, automated emails, and even live events designed to gain someones trust and eventually sell them something. It’s easy to learn how to get people to trust you when you’re sitting in front of them, but it’s much harder to do it through a sales funnel.
So here are some words for you to learn:
Lead magnet – this is essentially a bribe that you offer people in exchange for their contact information.
Landing page – this is the page that you use to promise your lead magnet, and collect emails.
Auto responder – this is a piece of software that collects and stores contact info., as well as allowing you to organize the contact info and send automated emails to them.
Thank you page – this is optional, but it’s a page that thanks people for opting in to your list, and tells them what to do next. Sometimes it is used for building up the value of the lead magnet and starting to earn their trust by introducing yourself.
Delivery page – this is the page where you actually deliver the promised lead magnet. usually a video, article, or some sort of download.
Sales page – this is the last step of your funnel, where after giving them what they asked for, you attempt to sell them something. Sometimes, it can be very very effective to ‘sell without selling’ on your delivery page, as part of your lead magnet.
Follow up sequence – this is the series of automated emails that’ll be sent by your auto responder that you’ll use to deliver value (freebies similar to the original lead magnet), introduce yourself, build trust, and hopefully make a few more sales.
Those are the major pieces of the sales funnel we’ll be building in this series. Below, I’ll describe exactly how they fit together, and in the next few articles I’ll go through the technical part of actually setting it all up. I’ll literally go click by click and show you exactly what to do and exactly how to do it so you can copy me exactly.
Landing page => Thank you page => Delivery page => Follow up sequence => Sales page
The delivery page will gently sell the product, or even several products, while the follow up sequence and sales page will gradually get more and more direct.

Pretty much anyone could follow along well enough to build their own profitable sales funnel, even the lazy idiots out there.
That’s the great thing about the internet, even a lazy idiot can make money online if they copy someone who knows what they’re doing.
