Wild West Internet Marketing is not dead and Von Money proved it by netting over $6,450 in December 2012 thanks to the Amazon Affiliate Program and PPC advertising.
In his first ever released book, Von Money shows Internet Marketers that just because Google only favorites large authority sites now, the passive income money doesn't end there.
Von Money, a jack of all trades, admits he stumbled upon his latest success by accident.
"I just tried something no one else was. A lot of people could have been doing the exact same thing but I'd guess there were maybe 10-15 others at most."
Despite the humble assessment, Von Money doesn't attribute his success to luck.
"I don't doubt that true luck exists but luck isn't what makes you successful. Success is some combination of intelligence, skill, and persistence. Rather than seeing my endeavors as 'lucky' or 'unlucky', I view them in terms of experiments that either worked or didn't work."
Von Money exploited the Amazon Affiliate Program to make over 90% of his earnings in December 2012 but he wasn't always a fan of "Amazon Associates."
"I used to think the Amazon Affiliate program sucked. I didn't have success the first few times I tried it and I thought the 24 hour cookie was too much to overcome."
"I never could shake Amazon Associates though. I kept reading how people were making thousands upon thousands of dollars and I thought I had to give it another chance; There had to be something I was missing."
"Fast forward to the present and now Amazon is how I make the bulk of my money. I prefer monetizing with Amazon Affiliates on my websites over any other monetization method, including Google Adsense. Adsense is good but Amazon Affiliate program is great – as long as you know what you're doing."
In his new book on how to make money with Amazon Affiliate Program, Von Money goes into great detail on how to increase click through rates and conversions.
"My favorite part about PPC Advertising, PPC Arbitrage, and making money with Amazon Affiliate is it all boils down to the cold hard numbers. Nothing else matters. If you can make the numbers work, you can make passive income for a long, long time."
In his new guide on how to make money as an Amazon Affiliate, Von Money also gives out golden Internet Marketing success tips.
"The most success I've had and the most money I've made in Internet Marketing is when I took action and asked questions later. Of course I made a ton of mistakes but I figured them out as I went along. If you sit back and wait for all the conditions to be perfect before you try your hand, you'll pay for hesitating."
"Don't assume everything based on what you read or hear. Let your experience guide you. If you had listened to most of the SEO experts, they would have told you not to build unnatural links or Google will penalize you. A few years later after the black hats made a killing they were finally penalized but guess what, the white hats were penalized right along side them."
Von Money hopes his new simple but effective PPC Arbitrage book will help Internet Marketers rediscover easy online money and faster passive income.
"If I can make $6,500 clear in one month with 40 hours of work, I think that's a pretty good sign there's still plenty of money to be made if you're willing to put in a little time and effort."
