Its been a couple weeks since we have taken questions so fire away!

Also I have been toying the the idea of doing site reviews.   People ping me a lot for advice on how to make money or increase there revenues on their site and a lot of times I wish I could post it here because I think the advice is great content and a lot of people could benefit from it (or disagree with me which is great too).

So if you want you can submit your website from this form.  We will see how it goes.  Might make it a regular thing.

  1. This is simply gold Jeremy. Thanks for the opportunity. I’m sure a lot of your followers are going to appreciate this as much as I do!

    1. I’d also like to thank you for the opportunity to get solid advice from a guru like you! This is priceless.

  2. Its great to see that you will start reviewing sites…. My question is: When you first started out, what did you do to promote your site?

  3. Things are a lot different on the net than the last downturn. How does the current economic outlook affect how you look at businesses and new projects? Is success going to be at a slower pace with a new project? Obviously things are different now and a new idea may not execute the same way it did two years ago.

  4. Im sure youll get plenty of requests, i know i will! plus im looking forward to reading the feedback you give to people, might learn a thing or two.

  5. As for what i always ask something related to Mac..
    Do you have some tools to post from Mac to your blog directly?
    And what apps do you use to create videos in mac?

    Btw i would be seeing more questions this round.

  6. When you get in a funk with Internet Marketing (I’m in one) what things can help you get out of it?

    take a break?, shut it all down start over?

  7. I have no questions right now.

    But reviewing sites would be pretty sweet, and provide a lot of helpful information.

  8. Whats your thoughts on the cpaempire scam that caused a ruckus over at wickedfire? if you read about it (the thread has since being deleted)

  9. I want social media traffic. I have quality content that never gets voted up. It looks like building a social media profile takes a long, concerted effort – and I am more interested in content generation than profile generation, but still want some help getting publicity for my content.

    Part 1: Where can I hire good, cheap help on social media sites?

    Part 2: Do you have any experience/success with kicking off viral campaigns via ad networks, sponsored stumbles, etc?

  10. One big question: When are you going to suck it up, be a man and quit sulking about the fact I made a joke and unblock me from Twitter?


    I have lots of stuff to send you for free shirt Friday if you do… tees, fleeces and an iPod Nano for your readers.

    1. I will answer this right here.

      My whole company was down for 4 days due to DOS attacks. You claimed you know the person who was behind it. We had federal agents at our office at the time and they wanted to speak with you and get your information.

      Then you comment that you were just joking.

      We lost over $25,000.00 in that attack and you sit back and make jokes about it saying you are friends with the people behind it?

      There is a line and you crossed it.

      Take your Jacket, Nano’s and T-shirts and shove them up your ass.

      1. that’s why I wasn’t able to access your website some time ago. It’s pretty nasty when you have to fight against DDOS attacks. The people that do this kind of things must die.

        1. 25k is a lot to lose, sorry to hear that dude. Its one thing to joke around with something like this but when there are peoples lively hoods depending on that income it is not a joking matter in any way shape or form.

  11. I feel like I don’t put out enough content and would like more. I was considering hiring someone to write content for my site. Problem is that everyone who I’ve found has no idea about the niche. I’m told that it doesn’t matter as content writers will research whatever subject you give them and then write the content. I’m leery of this approach.

    I guess I’m asking if it’s actually reasonable to expect good, accurate content from someone who isn’t familiar with what the site is about?

  12. Can you please recommend a copyright/trademark place to c/t website.

    Also how much is it going to cost and is it worth it to do it? thanks!

  13. At what point do you draw the line between ethics and affiliate marketing? Basically stuff that you know is a scam but still get paid big $$ to do it. So where do you say, I’m not going to promote this.

    ex: “Weight Loss” “Payday Loans” “Ringtones” “Spam Newsletters” “FREE Stuff”

  14. Why are you using that pop-up method that John Chow is using to gain a subscriber for a free eBook?

  15. How long does one should take recieving search engine traffic on a blog about technology if one new post comes up daily. If it depends, what are the factors on which it depends?

  16. When advertising:

    Should you start out small and target cheaper (advertising prices) blogs for advertising..

    Or go big from the start and then branch out to smaller blogs.

    Thanks Shoe.

  17. I assume you do some PPC marketing yourself to promote affiliate products and leads. My question is, is PPC your #1 tool for affiliate marketing?

  18. As you’ve been getting bigger in the field of making money online, do you find yourself starting many new affiliate marketing related sites or have you been focusing much of your time lately on your current large projects (such as

  19. Jeremy

    I started into PPC a few days ago and am looking to build my very first landing page for the campaign I am running.

    Would recommend using WordPress to build a landing page from and if so, what would be your best tip to help in conversations.

  20. would you rather be a fish that cant fly or a bird that cant swim?

    real philosophical one that to lighten the mood 🙂

  21. What do you think is the best way to go about getting direct advertisers for my blog so I can replace AdSense. I have a list of manufacturers and retailers that advertise on my competitors sites, but I’d like to know what you think is the best way to approach them.


  22. regarding forum subscriptions in your experience (where members can pay/donate money for additional features) do you find that having a lower subscription price like $9.99 would attract more people or something higher like $19.99 would be better (as it wouldn’t dilute the ‘value’ of being a VIP member). also, what special features have you found that your VIP members have enjoyed the most?

  23. I want to learn PHP, what book(s) do you recommend, or other reading materials, for that matter?

  24. i want to create a blog network. now i find 3 niche idea and with them at the beginning the network will start with 3 blogs. i want to ask you will wordpress is suitable for this or can you give an advice. if i do well i will add some new blogs to it.

    and i want to learn how can you concentrate yourself to write several post everyday?

    thanks a lot.

  25. Jeremy, I’m having trouble attracting quality affiliates for my site I’ve got a fun site, a quality product, and great client reviews. And with holiday office parties just around the corner, the timing couldn’t be better. But I just can’t get affiliates excited about the prospect. I don’t think people see the potential. What advice can you give about reaching good affiliates and getting them fired up about my product? Thanks!

  26. Do non-tech people believe that you make that amount of money from the internet? Have you ever lied about your work just becouse you didn’t want to explain it?

  27. Jeremy, I have this great website that converts like crazy so I thought I’d create another website on a different domain name reviewing the same services but with unique content. Will the second website rank in Google even though the keywords are the same as the first and the ip address of the domains are the same?

  28. Hmm, let’s say: Did you still making big cash from adsense?

    By the way I submitted my blog for a review, will see how it goes.

    Thanks J.

  29. How stable is your online revenue? I recently started making twice as much as I did at my ‘normal job’, but I have noticed the income can vary a few hundred dollars. Does the threshold for you vary only a few hundred dollars per month. . .or does that grow just like your total revenue does.

  30. Are we allowed to ask random questions like “How did you come up with your slogan?” 😉

  31. I noticed that you’re using the Google Trends technique. You did a great job making quality articles unlike those other blogs that made sloppy articles. How much unique visitors did your Halloween and UFC page bring in from Google? 🙂

  32. When people see you in Lincoln do they realize that your kind of a big deal, or how often do people ask what the heck is shoemoney?

  33. What is a good number of ad-networks to belong to? Is it possible to belong to too many? Better to belong to a select few?

  34. If you lost everything, but were left with a stream of $300 / month what would you do with it, in an attempt to get back to your former glory?

  35. What plugin did you use for your newsletter pop-up and what kind of boost have you seen to your subscription?

  36. Hi Jeremy, I am starting a new site where people can review products in my niche, how do I go about seeding the site before I start to publicize it, should I hire people from Craigslist to pay for reviews or do I throw it up there and see if people get excited about it? Thanks a lot!

  37. Are you planning on doing more interview type pieces with affiliate networks and their owners?
