A Review Ewen Chia’s Newbie Cash Machine

If you are committed to making money online as an affiliate, you will find the review below helpful. It explores a resource that is a step-by-step guide for affiliate marketing success.

I do not promote stuff that I do not own, love or believe in. (I am crazy like that-it is not just about money, my rep is on the line).

I am an Affiliate for Ewen Chia, and this is a sincere review of one of his products. I am a very skeptical person myself and I recommend you should be too-there are many false prophets in Internet marketing. I respect and like Ewen, but if he comes up with a sub-standard product-I will not promote it. Your interest is the most important factor.

One of the things I love about Ewen’s products (I have five of his products!) is the fact that they are extremely qualitative, yet affordable.Ewen spent years before he mastered IM,he understands what newbies are going through and is genuinely interested in helping. Believe me; most of the free stuff Ewen has sent me are more qualitative than some Guru resources that I paid for.

I structured this review so that you can easily digest it.


The Product: Newbie Cash Machine

Newbie Cash Machine is the ultimate guide for beginners to Affiliate marketing. It is a very comprehensive and detailed resource. It is a “balanced” resource, in the sense that it is conceptual, yet at the same time practical.Ewen provided lots of screenshots, explaining the processes required for affiliate marketing success.

Key Lessons:

Because of space, I cannot list all the things you will learn by buying this wonderful resource. But a few are:
The "big picture" of how money actually gets made online, without all the hype about the latest fads. Your future success depends on understanding this!

The right framework for setting up a profitable business - and "make money" isn't all there is to it.
Why making money online is truly simple, but nobody has told you what you have to know to do it yourself (maybe they're afraid you'll take some of "their" money - I'm not, there's plenty to go around).

The reason lots of online "businesses" crashed and burned when the tech bubble burst...and how you can build a rock-solid business to finance the lifestyle you want for years!

The #1 product for the Internet, and why it's your secret weapon in your quest for wealth...

Why you need to be the "middle person" to make it big online...and exactly how to do that with less effort than you might think...

The quickest and easiest way to start making real money online NOW, even if you've failed before and think it's all a "scam" (it's not, and I'll show you why it'll work for you)!

10 easy steps to crank out unlimited "cash machines" of your own, anytime you

The list above represents about 30% of what you will learn in the resource.

The newbie cash machine system is based on Ewen’s over a decade experience-so this stuff works.

It also comes with a comprehensive internet marketing dictionary.IM is full of cryptic terms like PPC, PPV, CTR…they are all explained in very simple terms.

The product creator:

The creator of this product is Ewen Chia; he is usually described as the world’s number 1 Super Affiliate. He is a consummate professional. He is the top affiliate marketer, a product creator, Speaker and Author.
Check out what Joel Comm wrote about him:
“Ewen Chia is the master of Internet marketing. If you implement even a fraction of what he teaches, you will be 10 steps ahead of those trying to make money online”.Ewen has taught thousands of students his system.


This resource is huge-it is a hundred and forty one pages! You will need to allocate time, to properly digest it.


If you want to start making money online ASAP.I suggest you quickly get yours Click Here!"(I heard rumors that Ewen might be raising the price soon).

The Key to becoming a Successful Affiliate

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.This post will be long,but it will be worth the effort.
Pour yourself a glass of your favourite drink and let us discover the KEY.

What is the most important factor in becoming a successful affiliate? Let us explore this issue by taking a different, yet relevant approach. We will start by asking why do most Affiliates fail? There are many reasons, but let us focus on a few. They are:

• The Lone ranger mindset
• Information glut
• Haphazard marketing
• False prophets
• The magic wand myth

The Lone ranger mindset

Our society pays lip service to team work, yet glorifies and celebrates individuals. The reality is that there is little that one can achieve alone. Yet, most affiliates try to do everything alone, and that can be immensely stressful and boring, since the results are usually a far cry from the investment of time, money and skills (not to talk of the sleepless nights).Becoming a successful affiliate requires understanding the concept of synergy.

There are so many skills to master, to be a successful marketer, and it is very rare to find all these skills present in an individual. Imagine an affiliate who knows how to design effective websites, writes fantastic copy, blog, can effectively use all methods of traffic generation, and write impressive auto responder messages…

Information glut

The other day, I was watching videos showing some of the best marketers in the world: Jay Abraham, Dan Kennedy, Yanik Silver…I saw an advert by Yanik,showing a guy in his library, the guy claims to have almost all the books and resources on copywriting, yet he looks far from being successful.
The web is a vast treasure house of information, that is one of the most beautiful things about the web. It is also one of the most dangerous things about the web, and one of the reasons why many fail. All you need to do is just click on another hyperlink, and you are transported to another world: A universe full of e-books and software you may never use or fully leverage in a lifetime! A simple click and you are taking miles away from the true path.

Haphazard marketing

I am embarrassed to say it, but we need plans to achieve our dreams. It seems very obvious and logical. But most of the time we approach our affiliate business without clear-cut goals, resources needed, tracking milestones…We jump from one program to another as if affiliate marketing is going out of business.
I believe we fail to plan because planning requires thinking and appraising ourselves. It requires dreaming, it requires demanding a lot from ourselves. It requires intellectually moving out of our comfort zones. And most of us would rather take things easy.
Successful marketing requires being proactive and strategic. If we are not, we will keep jumping from one activity to another, from one new technique to another, with little to show for our hard work.

I hope you are more structured in your work. I believe in being creative, and I also believe in serendipity, but most of the time, we achieve a lot more when we know where we are going, and we are taking the required baby steps on a daily basis.

False prophets

One of the world’s most respected management consultant, Alan Weiss, wrote about how easy it is to become a consultant. In a sense, it is also very easy to become a guru in internet marketing. There are false claims and many scams. I don’t know about you, I have been scammed before. Everywhere you turn, there is a guru peddling his new system that will wipe away poverty from your life, if you just pay $97! (The fine print does not show you may need $300 to implement the system. Assuming it will work at all).

The magic wand myth

We all know that one of the most endearing attributes of the PC is speed. If you believe some sales letters, you can make millions on the web in a few months! And all you need is just a few hours. There is a lot to be said for working smart and fast, but there is really no success without hard work and patiently waiting for results. We all secretly look for shortcuts and loopholes. Well, let me know when you have found one. Please call me when you discover the silver bullet.

Thank you for taking a walk with me, as I was saying, there are many reasons why affiliates fail. That leads us to what I believe is the most important ingredient for becoming a successful affiliate: Learning from the Masters.

Learning from the Masters

The most successful people usually have mentors, guides who are not only very successful, but also genuinely concerned about helping others. When we let go the myth of the lone ranger and we run away from the false prophets, we can exponentially increase our success by leveraging the hard –won knowledge of masters who have trod the path. It is logistically impossible to have one on one interaction with some of these people. Fortunately, they have captured their knowledge and experience in books. Some also offer seminars and workshops. I will be recommending a few on this blog.

Profitable Affiliate Products-Conversion rates,gravity and payout margins

In the last post, I wrote about three high-level criteria for choosing affiliate products: Profitability, passion and knowledge. Come a bit closer, and let us explore the profitability factor in a bit more detail. (The profitability factor makes me feel passionate!).To choose profitable affiliate products, we need to consider factors like conversion rates, gravity and pay out margins. We also need to pay close attention to our advertising and promotion expenses.

What are conversion rates, gravity and pay-out margins? They are very simple concepts. It is as if we all love coining big words for simple things. Why? Tell me why? Gravity is a measure of how popular the affiliate product is, the higher the gravity, the higher the number of affiliates promoting the offer, and if you are using Clickbank, the figure is always provided for virtually all products.
The payout margin refers to the percentage of the sales that is being paid as commission.
If affiliate product X is $100, for example, and $60 is being paid as commission. The pay –out margin is 60%.
The conversion rate is an approximate measure of demand, because it simply shows the ratio of buyers to surfers. If 100 people visit your website or blog daily and only 20 people buy your product on offer. You have a conversion rate of 20%.It succinctly shows how many surfers are being converted to buyers. Buyers rock.

If you think about it, none of the factors should be taken in isolation. It is very easy to be lured by products with high pay –outs. For a product to be profitable, we must also take into consideration its conversion rate. If a product is not converting well, we will have little to show for all the sleepless nights spent in front of that beautiful laptop (paid for with a credit card!).We will expend a lot on our PPC campaigns, with dismal returns as our reward, or write articles upon articles until our fingers bleed.

Thus, the ideal will be products with high gravity, high-coversion rates and high pay-out margins.Okay, you are wondering: How and where do we find such products? At your fingertips. I am serious. I actually mean cyberspace. On this blog, I will post data on 7 high paying affiliate products, that is more moola for you.

Profitable Affiliate Products - 3 Key Factors on Choosing Highly Profitable Affiliate Products

One of the most important tasks for an affiliate is knowing how to choose profitable affiliate products. It is very simple. There are three high- level criteria to contend with. They are:

• Profitability
• Passion
• Knowledge

PPK, if you love acronyms. I do. I am assuming you are in business to make money. But, even if you do not need the money, and you want to give it to charity, you need to make the money first, right? Thus, you need to select products that are in demand and that pay good commissions. You need to research keywords for your target market. There are free and paid software that can help you with the vital research process. You can Google keyword research software.

But, do not spend all your time researching (it is not a PhD assignment!). Essentially, you are trying to determine how many people on the average are interested in your proposed niche, potential returns and investment, and also the level of competition.

Passion is like fuel. You can still make a lot of money without it. But the ride might not be fun. I believe life is not to be endured. It is to be enjoyed. Would you like another glass of beer? Isabella told me you were up late yesterday. It is vital to factor in the passion element, because life is too short.

Your passion will imbue your communication with prospects and clients with authenticity, and it will show that you really care. And when tough times come, it will carry you through. You want to choose products that you enjoy using yourself and that you love sharing with others.

Choosing and exploiting profitable affiliate products require knowledge. Knowledge or information is the most sought after product. It goes without saying that you need a deep understanding of your product and of your prospects. Only then will you be able to convince them to buy. Business is essentially about creating value for others. The more knowledge you have the easier creating and selling value becomes. It also confers expert status on you (which is good for the ego).

Those are the major criteria you need. In the next article, we will explore the specifics like conversion rates, gravity, passive income generation and other simple ideas that will not only enable you choose highly profitable affiliate products, but, more importantly, fill your bank account to the brim.
My bill will be waiting.

Basic tools for your cash surge

Like other pursuits,making money online requires some basic tools.As an affiliate you need the following.
  • A website
  • An autoresponder
  • Link cloacker
  • Link tracker
Your website is like your store.Yo can display your products on it.You can have high quality information that will help you generate tons of revenue,while building a listing of prospects and clients.

The autoresponder as the same implies allows you to communicate with your market on autopilot.It is magical software.It reduces the amount of work you need to do,and enables you to earn passive income.To promote any product,you need an affiliate link,it is unique to you.

Most affiliate links,do not look very attractive,that is why you need a link cloacker.It also prevents people from stealing your commissions!

It is vital to have feedback in everything we do.That is what a link-tracker does for you.We need to track and test,so that we can improve our marketing.

There are some other tools,and we will explore them,and the ones above in detail soon.

Information Provision

The last post has one of the secrets of being a successful affiliate.It was not accentuated,but simply,it is to have the desire to help.Money is one of the ways we keep scores,but the driving force is the desire to make life better for others.
That requires constant learning and the desire to ensure that one is only offering one's customers the very best.As we noted in the first post,there are many ways of making money online,one of the affiliate's task is to search through this needle in a haystack,and select and offer, only products and services that will help others make cash fast,and solve other pressing problems.
Thus,the good affiliate is always in a learning mode and is only concerned about excellence.The fact that a product is selling well is not enough.The major issue is,at the end of the day will it be helpful to others.Thus the affiliate is an information provider,and a pursuer of excellence.

Money and Love

Maybe you dont really agree with me that money is one of the most important resources we all need.I know a few millionaires,and I was with one the other day.He was showing me round his estate,and at a point he showed me an expensive fish farm and joked:If you have something like this,your wife will never leave you! I laughed,and responded(tongue in cheek)'I thought marriage is meant to be based on love'.
He laughed and said:without money,love will fade!
You are probably getting ready for a debate.Some other time. On a deeper level,I believe money is just a means to an end.What we are really seeking is HAPPINESS.Thus,our business decisions should be driven by more than moola.We should do what we love.What we enjoy.We should see business as a vehicle for serving others.If we provide genuine value,we will be rewarded greatly.
What shall it profit a man to have a fat bank account,yet,be lonely and sad?
Do you love your work? Do you love your business? Do you truly love your clients?
When we love our work,we can unleash all that is waiting within us.We wont ever say:Thank God it is Friday.

Affiliate Marketing in a nutshell (2)

You might be wondering:Why choose to be an Affiliate?
Being an affiliate is really like eating your cake and having it!
You get to make tons of cash,relatively quickly without some of the
head aches associated with building your own business from scratch.
  • Huge start-up capital
  • Employees
  • Expensive IT infrastructure
  • Refunds
  • Payment Processing
  • Costly research and development
Your main task is promotion.Of course,affiliate marketing is a business,thus there is
work to be done.But,it is not as daunting as deciding to be a merchant/product creator
from the get go.You save a lot of time and money.
It is also a fantastic stepping-stone,if you decide to become a merchant/product creator later.
Is it rewarding? There are millionaire affiliates.A million dollar might not be a lot of moola to you,
but I think it is cool to start with.Later on,we can become like Sir Richard Branson,the riveting billionaire.
Do you know he has 390 companies?

Affiliate Marketing in a nutshell

Forgive me,if you are an advanced internet marketer.I think it is vital for me to let others know what Affiliate Marketing is about.
An affiliate marketer is a commissioned sales agent.You promote/advertise other peoples produts and services,and when people buy,you are paid a commission.Trust me,it is a fast,simple and lucrative means of making money online.
Permit me to dwell a bit on affiliate marketing in a few posts,then we will return to the other key requirements for affiliate marketing success.
Soon,I will also introduce you to a resource that will train you to become a super affiliate.The resource is worth $397.But you will access it free,before the owner changes his mind.The owner is probably the best super affiliate in the world.
I will keep you posted.

Affiliate Success Secret (2)

Apart from the temptation to explore many online businesses at once!
One other major stumbling block is the failure to have a plan.A plan that is
essentially a blueprint for success.One will achieve very little online,if there
is no structure.If we wake up not knowing specifically what we intend to achieve
that day.
As a business planner,I cannot overstate the importance of setting specific goals
and milsetones.
Written down,of course,trust me,there is magic in writing.Words are very powerful.
So,take a few minutes to clearly outline your plan.It will guide you and haunt you!
Seeing it clearly written down will be a constant reminder of the steps that will bring
a lot of gold.And no matter what anybody says-money is the main resource for building
a happy life.
Do not keep the plan in your head.Write it down,and work the plan.

Affiliate Success Secret (1)

The online world is like the real world-there are a million and one distractions.Every site you visit,someone is trying to sell you a magic wand.''Buy my e book,and all your worries will dissapear''
The reality,however,is that there is no magic pill.We have to work hard(and smart) to reap huge dividends online.
Thus,one of the main secret of success in affiliate marketing is simple,old-fashioned Focus.
We have to forget the get rich quick mentality and concentrate on building a business.A business that will grow gradually(of course,with the right strategies,fast).
Focus will ultimately bring financial freedom and growth.

I wish you abundance.
