Using The Keyword Academy(TKA) as your key to making a living onlinePosted: August 14, 2011
If you have made it to this page, you are more than likely trying to figure out a way to make money online. Below I will introduce you to some of the methods and pitfalls of making money online, and explain why I think The Keyword Academy is the best program out there.
I remember when I first got interested in earning extra money online. I used to spend a bunch of time googling for programs, tip and ideas on how to easily make passive income online. I had daydreams – perhaps you do too – of sitting on a beach with a Laptop, and checking in once a day to see how much money the internet had made or me since breakfast.
The big problem I encountered was that all the programs offering you the chance to make money seemed suspiciously too good to be true. The unfortunate fact is that there are a lot of people who make their living online by convincing others to buy programs that will teach them to make money online. Most of these programs are in essence online pyramid schemes.
As you get deeper into the realm of ‘internet marketing’ you will learn a lot of it is about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). This the art/science of making particular pages rank well in the SERP (Search Engine Results Page) when people search for certain terms.
There are a lot of acronyms in IM (Internet Marketing), and I will try to explain each one as I go. Pictured here is an example of a SERP page, the major goal in the Internet Marketing business is to have a page you own (in this case the search was for ‘make money online’) show up first in the results. If this goal is achieved then when someone like yourself (who is interested in making money online) does a search for the term, the first thing they will see is your page.
Once a visitor sees your page in the search engine results, there is a good chance they will click through and visit the site you are promoting. Once there the visitor can be ‘monetized’ (the act of turning internet traffic into money for the site owner). This can be accomplished thru various methods. They are primarily by presenting advertisements related to the search term (easily obtained from Googles Adsense program), or by encouraging them to click on ‘affiliate links’ to sites that pay commissions.
Let me explain affiliate links for a minute. TKA (The Keyword Academy) is one site that has an affiliate program. You can see the text ‘TKA (The Keyword Academy)’ is actually a clickable link. When a visitor clicks on the link they are taken to the Keyword Academy site, and given their sales pitch. If a visitor who arrives via this link from my site decides to join I get paid a referral fee.
This may sound a bit strange – dodgy even – but pretty much any service that you sign up to online has this type of program, even the most reputable ones. Subscribe to a magazine online? Odds are someone has made an affiliate commission of you doing so.
It is not just membership programs either. Even things as simple as an article about a product sold on Amazon might include an affiiliate link that ‘triggers’ when you click on a picture of the product. The person who sent you to Amazon that day gets a small slice of the profits if you buy anything.
That brief – well, not so brief – intro covers the ‘why’ of how its possible to make money online, but does not tell you how. Unsurprisingly, when there is money to be made, there are a lot of people competing for the opportunity.
The first thing you should remember is – DO NOT TRUST GOOGLE ON THIS. The IM business is full of people trying to make money online by having show their results first in the SERP pages.
If you are searching for something like the ‘distance of earth from the moon’, Google is going to do a good job of providing useful Search results. But if you are googling ‘making money online’ you are going to get a whole bunch of junk. Don’t just sign up to the first program you see – many of them are very expensive and over promise.
I personally recommend The Keyword Academy. Did those words give you a warm fuzzy? Many sites will contain heartfelt testimonials about an Internet Marketing service or program. Some people are experts in writing ‘sales copy’ (the art of using persuasive words to convert readers into buyers) – the use of first person recommendations and testimonials are a key part of this.
This whole article is sales copy really! So why should you trust my recommendation? You probably shouldn’t! I’ll make money if you click one of my Keyword Academy affiliate links and sign up, so it is clearly in my best interests that you do so:)
Nevertheless, if you have read this far, I will give you my sales spiel! Here are some of the best things about TKA:
- Free to try for a month – many IM programs require a large upfront payment. If they don’t deliver what they promise, you are quiet frankly out of luck. With the Keyword Academy you get to see what they offer without having to pay a cent. Subscription management is through Paypal, so if you decide to cancel you can just cancel the membership from within paypal – it is not possible for anyone at TKA to ‘refuse’ to let you cancel.
- $33 a month after the first month – if you decide to stick around after the first month, it doesn’t really cost that much. Well, let me clarify that. It is a good value if you actually value the program. Paying the monthly fee doesn’t make much sense if you can’t be bothered doing the work, in which case you should probably cancel. But by the end of the first month you should have had time to decide if you are up to it or not.
- It is Legit – many programs encourage you partake in all sorts of shady practices (also known as ‘black hat’) that fill the internet with junk that Google does not approve of. This can fool Google for a while, but eventually the SERP results will catch up with you and your pages will be outperformed by better quality ones.
- It works – this is where you have to decide if you trust me or not:) I went from making something like 50 cents a month online to just over 1000 dollars a month online in 14 months following the TKA program. That income does not take much work to maintain. This does not include affiliate income (from posts like this one!). It is purely from presenting informative articles about everyday topics and products and letting google ‘serve’ (display) those articles – and related advertisements – to searchers on a daily basis.
So would a Keyword Academy membership do the same for you? I’m going to be honest and say there is no guarantee. It takes a lot of work to succeed in the Internet Marketing business. It is not particularly ‘hard work’ (as it is relatively easy to follow the steps the TKA program provides), but you will have to ‘work hard’. Hopefully you grasp the difference!
Many people join for a month and decide they don’t want to pay for the program, or they don’t want to do all that work. That is fine, since the first month is free it doesn’t cost them a cent.
However, if you are serious about earning money online – whether to supplement your day job, or to replace it – this program can make you money if you stick to it!
Try out the Keyword academy free trial for yourself, it may change your life! (That is another sales copy line, but I think it has some truth to it)
One day I hope to make enough online that my dreams of sitting on the beach with my laptop checking on my passive income come true. Good luck to you with your dreams!
