This article outlines a seven step blueprint designed to set up a virtual ATM machine that will continue to produce an income for many years to come.

Whenever you embark on anything new there is something you need to have in front of you to guide you through the whole process that shows you the way it’s done.

That something is... a blueprint.

A step by step plan that outlines what you do first, second, third and so on to achieve your goal or complete your project.

For many in this situation the tasks could appear daunting. Most would rely on trial and error to accomplish the task, and few would succeed.

I would like to outline for you a seven step plan - a blueprint if you will - that will walk you step by step through the process of setting up your very own virtual ATM machine where you can earn income at will whenever you want just by implementing these seven steps I am about to share with you. This blueprint has been used by many gurus in the industry to set up numerous, automatic income streams that virtually run on autopilot. And depending on the strength, popularity and timeliness of the niche market selected, the income from this plan could continue long after you have set it up. A true "set it and forget it" business that runs itself.

Here is the seven step blueprint to making money at will:

  1. Select a Popular Niche Market to exploit.

    The choice of a niche market is paramount. Choose a hungry market that is ravenous for what you are going to be offering. You will want to target a niche that is actively seeking solutions to problems they perceive to have, such as "how to quit smoking in 3 easy steps", or "how to lose weight quickly" and where they are willing to pay for answers to their problems.

    Start by using the free resources in Google to search for and analyze the key words that you will be using to target your niche. These are gold, and you will make serious money from them. You can also go to EzineArticles and do a search of the top articles listed there to identify which niches are ripe for exploitation.

  2. Assemble All the Tools You Will Need To Proceed.

    After you have identified your profitable niche, the next step is to assemble the tools you will need for the job.

    These are the following:

    • A domain name for your website. Include your niche name in the domain name.
    • A hosting account so that your website can go live.
    • A Squeeze Page to drive traffic to.
    • An autoresponder to deliver the emails to your audience.

  3. Select an Offer or an Affiliate Program to Promote.

    In this step you need to find an affiliate program to promote to your target niche. It is often said that the best way to do this is to find out what they are already buying, and then sell it to them. Go to ClickBank and browse the niche market you have selected as your target audience. Choose one of the products at the top of the lists as these are selling best.

  4. Obtain an eCourse or a Newsletter From Any Reputable PLR Source and Load It In Your Autoresponder.

    This step involves the creating of a mini course, a newsletter, or an email series on the product your are promoting. Ideally, your email series should be between 7 to 12 messages long. If you cannot write such a series of emails, you can purchase them from any one of a number of sources online.

    For example, if you are promoting a video product on "how to train your dog" you can write seven messages on aspects of dog training like sitting, healing, walking, etc., and in every message you would refer the subscriber to your affiliate link that takes them to the sales copy page where they can purchase the product, thereby earning you a commission. Or, if you are promoting a diet plan product you can create a 7 part message series on how to diet properly, how to maintain energy levels while dieting, how to lose 10 pounds in 10 days, etc., and in every message you will include your affiliate link that takes them to the sales page as before.

    This series of emails will point out certain hints, tips and suggestions on the niche market but will NOT reveal all, as prospects have to buy the product from your link to receive everything they need to solve their problem, and then bingo, you make a commission.

    If you can't write ad copy as required, buy it online.

    Next, load the message series into your autoresponder and time them out for delivery every day or two.

  5. Create a Squeeze Page to capture names and email addresses.

    The next step is to convince your prospect to subscribe to your eCourse or newsletter. You do this by creating a Squeeze Page that includes an opt in form to receive the visitor's name and email address.

    This page should include:

    • A bold headline that captures your visitor's attention. (e.g., “FREE: "How to lose 20 pounds in 3 easy steps!)
    • A list of the major benefits of your course (e.g., “You’ll discover the secrets of losing unwanted belly fat in 3 easy steps!”).
    • A call to action (e.g., “Allow me to send you this information. Click join and you’ll get instant access to this eye-opening report!”).

    You can also provide other testimonials or evidence of the results to be achieved by using this product.

  6. Drive Traffic to the Squeeze Page Using Both Free and Paid Sources.

    The next step is to drive lots of targeted traffic to your squeeze page. The reason for this is to build your mailing list as quickly as possible. You can do this in any number of ways including using both free and paid methods. I use both.

  7. Add More Messages to Your Autoresponder's Series of Emails.

    The final step is to draft more emails on the product and to load them into your autoresponder. Once you are routinely driving traffic to your Squeeze Page you will start to build your mailing list and then eventually make more sales and ultimately, more commissions. If you write enough email messages to last one year you will have set up a complete follow up system on this product that will "drip feed" your prospects at pre-determined intervals for the entire year! And it will completely run on autopilot!
