Ian Pribyl’s Background
You will hear that Ian had some very humble beginnings.
He became interested in making money online in his teens.
But it wasn’t easy to do.
There were so many scams and people that just wanted to take his money. And it was hard to keep going after being scammed by online courses and “gurus”.
It wasn’t even like he had the money to throw away on them. He even had to split a course into 2 payments because he couldn’t afford it in one go.
It was $177!
These beginnings give him a great perspective for many people trying to start an online business that cannot afford to throw away money.
A lot has changed in online marketing since Ian started in 2007.
So, maybe you’d like to know the answer to this question…
Is SEO Dead in 2019?
In 2007, Ian explains how Internet marketing was very different.
Simple websites with 6-7 pages could get ranked well on Google.
There is no denying SEO (search engine optimisation AKA getting ranked on Google) has evolved and there have been many fads on the way.
However, effectively SEO has fundamentally stayed the same.
- Getting links to a website are still super important
- Creating great content that people want to read still wins
If you hear anyone saying SEO is dead, then chances are they are trying to sell you something or they have their own agenda.

Are You Dealing With a Buying Audience?
Ian really shows some of his amazing knowledge for making money online here.
He touches on some of the things he covers in “From Nothing” and FIMP.
There’s really only one question you need to ask yourself:
Is your target reader seeking to make a purchase to answer a question or solve a pain point?
Once you know the answer to this you can work out the next question:
So how do you make money from this niche?
You simply solve their problem.
Make sure it’s helpful, what they are looking for and will solve their problem. Then making money online is simple.
Here are the 3 biggest industries for making money online:
Important note- they are not niches!
There are thousands of niches underneath these umbrellas.
The reason these are the 3 biggest money-making industries is that they are typically people’s biggest pain points.
How to Monetise Your Website
There are endless ways to monetise your website once you get the traffic.
- Sell a product
- White list products
- Affiliate marketing
- Paid per leads i.e. credit card companies
All of these fall under one of the 4 main monetisation methods:
- CPA (cost per acquisition- affiliate marketing falls under this)
- Sell your own physical or digital products
The thing is, you really will only get serious about monetising in any of these ways when you get 75-100 pageviews every day.
Now, I can almost hear your mind thinking…
“But how do I get that traffic?!”…
Well, that’s where Ian’s Free Internet Marketing Project (FIMP) and book “From Nothing” comes in!
