UPDATE: For the latest guidance to get started – check the 40 day guide
I dont like re-inventing or copying other people’s work – so here is a short (ish) chapter with some of the best getting started guides I have come across.
For some you will need to sign up to email lists, but trust me, the guides are good. If you cant stand the emails, just unsubscribe afterwards.
Please be mindful that you will need to put your ‘salesblock’ on and just cut through some of the selling that is in some of the guides i refer to later on.
Basics of SEO & Setting up a blog – The Challenge
Check The Challenge (2010) and just scan through the modules including the prework. All the basics are covered here if you want to know about SEO, setting up websites, backlinks, market leadership & monitisation.
Dont worry about signing up for any of the services they are referring to though. You dont need them for this guide. Unless of course you want to.
The purpose of this is to boost your knowledge about making money online & SEO.
Now if you like their approach – by all means go through it in detail. But its gonna take you several weeks in my view before you will start to see anything close to a result.
Here are some of the more important modules and elements of the training.
- Market leadership & the online business model
- All of module 1 to understand about niches, choosing your niche, deciding on whether a niche can be profitable, and keyword research using market samurai (recommend you get the demo of this tool and if you like it let me know and ill see if I can get the forum a discount)
- Hosting & domains (Dont worry about the WordPress Direct stuff)
- Basics of banklinking
- All of Module 6 – Monitization
- Google alerts

Although we will cover PPV (also referred to as Cost Per View – CPV) and Facebook over the next two weeks, the following links are very good reads and introduction to PPV and Facebook:
I recommend you also have a look around facebook’s official guide about facebook marketing.
