How I Made $580 Last Month By Doing Nothing

Posted In: How To Guides 

The subject for this blog post sounds like one of those delightful spam emails we all receive doesn’t it?

But luckily for you I haven’t changed career paths to become one of the Norths leading Viagra suppliers to hill farmers, they’ll have to wait for their little blue pills, because I’ve found something far more lucrative.


Over the past month (6th Dec – 6th Jan), I’ve made $580 in affiliate commissions from a single product, just by sitting on my backside twiddling my thumbs. I’ve genuinely not done a single thing in the past month to promote the product, no emails, no blog posts, no articles – nothing!

I’ve made these commissions using something I like to call “The Leech Method”. Although to be honest I have a feeling the method may not actually be mine, and I read about it somewhere, so if you are reading this and you are the creator of the “Leech Method”, good for you, it works!

Before I go on, here are the commissions for the “Multi Profit Websites” product for the 1 month period:

I’ve highlighted 2 rebills which came from my initial promo back in November, so I’ve taken them off the total, bringing the total commissions for the month down to around $580.

And here’s how I did it….

It all started back on October 13th with the following blog post:

Multi Profit Websites was due to launch on October 27th, so I created a blog post showing a demo site that I had created using the software and gave an overview of the product. I then emailed you guys to show you it, so I gathered some interest that way, but, and I’ll be honest and say this was the main reason for the post. I knew there was no competition on Google for the phrase “Multi Profit Websites”, so a well written blog post would get me onto the first page in just a few hours. (And it did)

Fast forward to the 21st October, 6 days before the launch of Multi Profit Websites, and I wrote the following post:

It was posted for the same reason as my 1st post, to gather interest in the product, but also to get another link on the 1st page of Google.

That’s the only promotion I did on my blog, so I managed to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, I got you guys interested in the product, and I also got 2 pages on the 1st page of Google. But I wasn’t finished.

You’ll remember in the 1st blog post, I showed a demo site that I’d created using Multi Profit Websites. The site was hosted on the main domain:

I wasn’t the only person who could have taken advantage of this, loads of people had demo sites up on the domain, but very few chose to utilize this.

I knew that if I got a couple of back links to that site, I’d automatically get the number 2 spot on Google, directly under the official site.

So I wrote an article, submitted it to ezinearticles and hey presto:

Finally, I created a quick mini site using the domain

On the mini site I wrote about the product, showed off my demo site, added some related videos and….well, take a look!

So all of these different sites were on the front page of Google at one point. I’ve just taken a quick look and I still occupy the following positions on Google for the search term “Multi profit Websites”:


That’s great, but how do these sites keep making me a commission whilst I plan my move into the Viagra niche?

Multi Profit Websites is a very popular product, and loads of affiliates promote it. So each time an affiliate promotes MPW, they make the product known to a new buyer. A lot of these buyers will research a product before buying, and what do they use to research? GOOGLE!

All I’m doing is leeching off the other affiliates work, I let them do the leg work, and I close the deal by providing the content that the potential buyer is looking for.

And that final point is very important. MPW is a great product, so it’s very easy for me to write about, I have tons of experience using it, so I can put my view across very well on the product. What you shouldn’t do is pick any old product, and simply rewrite the sales page, or fill the pages with any old crap.

Give the potential buyer the information they are looking for. If you are finding it hard to enthuse about the product, then there’s a good chance the product is actually pretty crap, and you don’t really want to have anything to do with a bad product….and as I write this it’s snowing cats and badgers, so I’d best sign off before the power goes!

So that’s everything covered – “The Leech Method”.

As always, let me know if you have any questions, thoughts, etc, etc, etc.

And if you want a big discount on the normal MPW price, you can get one by going through the following link:

  1. I noticed the sales from you coming in and actually thought you’d mailed out to your subscriber list again, I then realized you hadn’t and wondered how you were making sales. Now I know.

    Dan, there’s a product in what you know waiting to be created, I know I’d be prepared to pay for a detailed step by step guide.

  2. Very good method… the first and foremost part that a lot of people will miss: create value for the potential buyer!

    You provided the very thing that people who are planning on making a purchase will want, a detailed step by step usage example, so that when they want to use the product, they know they will be able to see what you have done and do the same!

    Thanks for the great post!

      Hi Micheal,
      You’ve hit the nail on the head. A lot of similar methods focus on generating pages/sites in bulk to get on the 1st page of Google, but they recommend you fill the sites with crap content, which is defeating the purpose. There’s no point getting a good ranking if the site you are promoting is rubbish!

    You were right about the spammy description. Thunderbird asked me if your email was spam. Made me laugh.

    Nice post once again, Dan. Your descriptions are so simple and direct to the point that even I can understand them.

      Hi Pat,
      Happy new year, I was meant to email you but forgot :-0

      Glad you over-ruled Thunderbird on the spam decision 😉

  4. Rob Corrigan says:

    Hi Dan there really is a serious product idea in this, perhaps with some step by step videos explaining the process for another product launch.

    Happy new year

    Eeee by gum lad..


  6. Hey Dan (Happy new year mate) & Paula

    Another great detailed formula for generating easy commissions, you have done a few great blueprints for affiliate launches…

    Going to give that ago sometime… Cheers Dan

    Hi Dan,

    I agree with the others. There is definitely and affiliate product in your method. I still have no idea about it all. I am still comprehending the whole blogging concept! 😯

    Hope all is great!

    Jacinta 😀

    • Dan says:

      I often think that I should go back through all of my years of posts, pick out the best ones and then expand upon them, with screen shots, step by step guides etc. And then make them into little mini-products.

      …Another thing on my to do list 🙂

    Genius Mate! Cant believe all this has come from that website we had for GWA haha Class!! You got any footage lying about online of us back in the day?

    Wow, great blog you have here. Been getting emails from you from a signup I did a while ago but haven’t clicked thru until today. Will have to set aside some time to go through and read more.

    Will also check out the Multi Profit Website system. Up to now have been doing all sites from scratch (static, wordpress, SBI, Squidoo, etc.)

    Quick question about this post. You say you started promoting MPW on Oct. 13th and it didn’t launch until Oct 27th. How did you get early access to the product to be able to position yourself to promote so early?

    I agree with many above that you do indeed have a info product in some of your previous techniques. Look forward to getting more of your emails in the future.
