The Latest Software Offering by MemberSpeed Inc.

It’s usually a joy to review MemberSpeed products, because they always take the extra effort to make whatever it is, fun. This time the software’s interface was replete with what can only be called “Ninjaisms” an obvious tie-in to the products name. They’re funny and quirky but unobtrusive so they add to the over-all experience without slowing down the work-flow.

Granted this is a small thing but for any entrepreneur struggling with motivation, this makes a huge difference, especially when faced with a long day filled with what might otherwise not be your favorite tasks. The other reason I look forward to reviewing MemberSpeed products is because they work.

This isn’t something you can take for granted when downloading software, even though it’s something we should expect. SqueezeNinja, the product I will be reviewing, promises to make and upload professional quality squeeze pages and thank you pages, plus a little more.

I’ll try to cover everything as we go, however, let me begin by describing the process of securing your copy of SqueezeNinja and uploading it to a URL so you can use it. Seconds after you pay for the program you’ll receive your download link and a link to the introduction and instructions videos.

The introduction video says that you’ll need the .ftp file transfer software FileZilla, to place this software on yourwebsite, as it is a self hosted web-based application. You might be able to upload the software using your hosts control panel but by using FileZilla they were able to rightuniversal directions that would work at almost every hosting service.

In fact, watching the section that explains how to upload these files using FileZilla might just make your entire online experience better by helping you to understand why perhaps something else you bought might not have worked.

FileZilla makes it easy to upload, create, and organize files on your server so learning this skill from the SqueezeNinja tutorials could easily be considered a bonus, although it’s not listed on the sales page.

You’ll find lots of hidden “bonuses” like this throughout SqueezeNinja! Incidentally, FileZilla is a Free open-source software that everyone online eventually needs to learn, so don’t be confused about SqueezeNinja being a complete product. It is, and more! That said, uploading SqueezeNinja to your website is a cinch, it’s a relatively small file and takes anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to upload depending on your bandwidth.

Once it’s uploaded you simply copy and paste the product license numbers you have received into the form and you are ready to start! You also receive access to step-by-step tutorials for every step of the SqueezeNinja page creation process.

All of the tutorial videos are clean, the sound is good, the picture quality is excellent, (I could read every word onthe screen, even without my reading glasses!) and the moderator’s voice is pleasant and his instructions thorough. Surprisingly, with as much power as this software provides the instructions videos only took about a half hour to complete. However, after watching them, and then looking at SqueezeNinja’s intuitive control panel I’m not sure the instructional videos were even necessary.

The simple control panel in SqueezeNinja is the only thing you need to concern yourself with whenever you want to create a squeeze page. It’s set up so all you need to do is fill in blanks, and click buttons.

Every decision you need to make has a “Question Mark Icon” next to it, and if you hover over them, you’ll get a complete explanation of what exactly you should be doing. I thought this “Question Mark Icon” tool to be an especially good feature, because if you don’t use this program very often, it will be nice to have these pop-up explanations there at your fingertips, to help jog your memory and move you along your way!

You can build your entire squeeze page and everything following the SqueezeNinja eight step form. Let me go over this so you can understand how it works. Any time you want to create a squeeze page, you’d start by logging into your control panel but if you’re already logged in, you can create several pages at that time. Once at your online control panel, to begin creating a squeeze page you need to simply “click” the “Create New Site” button at the top of the page.

As I said, “I feel confident I could have figured this out without watching the videos!” Once you “click” the “Create New Site” button, you’ll be instantly redirected to the eight step form.

The real genius in this control panel is that it’s so straight forward! Any options that don’t apply are hidden, unless you need them, so the entire thing is uncluttered and easy to follow. For instance, in step #1 you can choose whether or not to have tracking codes inserted. In the control panel, you’ll see a question that says “Use Tracking” and two radio buttons.

You’ll also see a helpful “Question Mark Icon”, also. If you leave the box checked “No” which it is by default, you’ll have no fields with which to concern yourself. However, if you check “Yes” the control panel will expand, giving you the options related to tracking codes and the forms needed to make them work!

The control panel is ingenious in this way because it only gives you the information you need when you need it! This is why, try as I might, to fool the software, every-time I created a squeeze page it looked and functioned beautifully!

Every option you could hope for is at your fingertips! You can decorate your site using gradients, different backgrounds, using images from the pre-loaded library of images that the software includes, or by uploading your own images using the “Browse” and “Upload” buttons in the control panel!

That’s right, once you have SqueezeNinja uploaded you won’t ever need to use your .ftp or hosting control panel to upload images! Everything is created using the SqueezeNinja control panel! It even includes a WYSIWYG editor so editing your squeeze page content is super simple, with the ability to change font color, size and style as easy as typing into Microsoft’s word program.

If you want red titles in the “Impact font”, simply choose it from the drop down. You can choose to have the body textbe in Tahoma or Arial the same way. Want to bold a single word or italicize it? Then simply highlight the word with your cursor and click the style you find appealing!

This software doesn’t confine you to the old-fashioned out-of-date squeeze pages produced by other software. You trulyget full control of how your website looks and feels. It’s even easy to place video into your squeeze pages to really modernize them and push-up conversions!

Integrating your auto-responder account’s opt-in (regardless of which auto-responder you use) is a copy and paste snaponce you retrieve the code from your auto-responders website. You can also add social sharing icons to your squeeze page so it promotes itself!

After you have designed the look and feel of your squeeze page, it is on to creating your thank-you page and choosing if you want to take advantage of any of the other options this software provides. All of this still within the eight step form at your SqueezeNinja’s control panel!

You can upload your thank-you gift, right through the upload link the same way you would a custom header image, and people will only be able to download your gift after giving you their email address!

This process is automatic. You’re even reminded to add customer service links, but you don’t need to include them if you don’t want. Finally, you’re given the last option which is whether or not you want to monetize your opt-in squeeze page. This software gives you several ways to make money just by building websites designed to give stuff away.

The first is by choosing whether or not to leave a “Powered by SqueezeNinja” link in your footer. This option allows you to earn commissions each time someone clicks on the link and buys the software you are using. If you feel that option is gauche, or you just want to take full credit for creating these incredible pages yourself, simply check “No” in the “Powered by” when completing the “bottom of squeeze page” section of the form.

The other way you can monetize your squeeze page is by adding affiliate offers, or your own offers to the mix! This can be accomplished by either adding your JVZoo code or of course, you can fully customize your download page by adding any affiliate product link and image you’d like.

(You can even add your own products image and link, too!) I’m not even sure I covered half of the customization options SqueezeNinja provides! But the entire process is so simple, and best of all, it works! As soon as you click “Done”, you’ll be spoon fed the links to your pages and if you’re a coder, you can go in and further customize them with your own special codes.

(It’s on your site so you have total control!) However, simply by filling out the forms, you now have a fully functional squeeze page system with all the links and back pages included! You can visit your squeeze page’s link, test it out, (it will work) and then start driving traffic to it!

I love this new SqueezeNinja software; expect to see many more squeeze pages from me in the future!

Make Traffic Count – How To Convert Traffic Into Sales

Make Traffic Count - How To Convert Traffic Into Sales

The primary goal of internet marketing is to bring traffic to a website. But let’s face it: While a lot of us are successful in bringing in traffic to our website, this does not mean that we are successful at our marketing campaign unless we make a sale.

Unfortunately, it has never been easy to convert website traffic into sales. A lot of websites are very successful in attracting visitors but very few can really convert visitors into customers.

If you are not gaining any sale from your web traffic, you are wasting a lot of your time, energy, and money in your marketing campaign. If this is the case then it’s time to re-evaluate things and figure out what’s wrong with your online strategy.

Below are handy online marketing tips that can significantly contribute change to visitor response rate in your website:

The target market

When it comes to your market, it is very important that you really ‘target’ your website visitors. The more targeted your market is, the better it is for you to provide them the right information that cater to their needs.

Additionally, try to find visitors who are ready to buy. You can do this by carefully selecting your keywords. While it is better to consider high volume searches like women’s  watches, try to also get more specific keywords like product names such as Timex GPS watch or Timex 1440 Sports.

If you are successful at targeting your market by choosing carefully your keywords, it’ll be easier for you to attend to their specific needs and you’ll be able to easily address these needs in your marketing materials.

Content

After you conduct a thorough research of your target market, the next step is to figure out how to effectively communicate with them.

It is very important that you consider “humanizing” your content rather than being too sale-sy. For example, instead of providing customers with 500-800 word content on the benefits of using your product why not give them something that will connect you to them personally? You may write something about how your previous customers felt and experienced after using the product.

Of course, if you are able to target your market, you should also be successful in creating the right content for your market. This means that you supply your market with complete and right details as much as possible. This is another way to connect to your market.

If your website is about hair straighteners, do not just provide your readers a list of products with pictures. Try to give as much information as possible to fulfil your market’s need for information. You should also include important details like features, pricing, and reviews.

The problem with most website owners is that they supply information that does not really ‘connect’ to their target market. Again, it is very important that you think of your market- what are they looking for in the first place? What are their needs?

Quite importantly, do not forget to do on-page optimization. Make sure that your webpages are well optimized. Like for example, your title tag and meta description are the first content that your visitors will see when they search online.

Thus, make sure that these sections are well optimized using your keywords and at the same time include a sentence or two that describes your product or service. Try to also add a call to action type of message to draw attention.

Design and navigation

You need to know how your visitors use your site. If you want to make a sale, you need to seamlessly combine content and page layout to get your visitors to purchase.

Most customers who are ready to buy often seek these things- contact information (specifically a phone number), satisfaction guarantee, and good support or customer service.

Again, when it comes to content, always create something that will ‘speak’ to your customers- provide them with clearer messages, assist them with their needs, and then eventually place a ‘call to action’ at the end of your message.

You’ll be surprise how little things can make a huge difference in online shopping. Make sure that your website is set-up in a way that people can find their way around effortlessly.

This is where split testing is needed. Most website owners only focus on their content and marketing strategies that they do not even bother to install a split testing software into their site.

Always consider and treat your website like it’s your real (offline) store and you are the store owner. All store owners know everything that is going on around their stores. This includes the number of people going in and out, the number of people buying, the products purchased, and so on.

Store owners have all these information and at the end of the day, they evaluate everything and check which needs replacement and which needs to be improved.

As a website owner, running and maintaining a website should also work that way. Having a split testing software installed will help you keep track of all elements that are working and not working in your site.

A good split testing software is able to provide you with good comparison between two or several elements in your site (like the headline or opt-in form) and suggests you the version that provides you with better results.

By constantly conducting split tests in your site can get you ahead of your competition since this will mean you’re always finding ways to improve your website pages.

Web analysis

Analysis and measurement of results should not be neglected. Make sure that your tracking software is accurate so all your efforts won’t be put to waste.

Always allot time to analyze your website statistics. This is the only way to know your visitors and to find for ways to convert them to customers.

Google Analytics for example can provide you with important information about your visitors and your website- the keywords that bring them to your site, the page entry, the exit pages, the links they click, and so on.

Use all this information to improve your website and develop ways on how you can convert visitors to customers.

That’s it guys! Go ahead and try to incorporate these things in your website. Hopefully, you can also share your thoughts here. I would love to hear them! 🙂

Greatest Concern About Facebook Home? You Guessed It, Privacy

If there is one thing that we have been conditioned to do over the years whenever Facebook so much as hiccups is to wonder just what they have or have not done to the privacy of Facebook users.

Facebook has a reputation of running roughshod over its users’ privacy and then acting as if there is a ‘no harm, no foul’ attitude that we should all adopt. Whether you let them off the hook or not is your call. Most simply put up with it and move on regardless.

The level of mistrust that has developed over the years is a healthy one but let’s be realistic here. It’s mostly shared by a vocal minority that Facebook is smart enough to realize is confined in a relatively tight echo chamber. After all there are about 1 billion users of Facebook and it is probably safe to say (in an extremely non-scientific manner) that at least 95% of them either don’t have a clue about what Facebook knows about them nor do they care. When it comes to how privacy is viewed by Facebook users, Facebook knows that its best result falls under the ‘ignorance is bliss’ category. They’re not stupid. Oh, and let’s not forget, this is for Android users only which is, for the most part, a different crowd than folks using iOS for their mobile experience.

 

So with the new Facebook Home offering that was announced last week that is set to start appearing in the wild on April 12, Facebook is looking to get out in front of any privacy issues. It’s a smart move and one that is pure CYA since we recognize that Facebook wants as much data as they can possibly get on every single user of Facebook. Why? For advertisers to target better. It’s a simple formula and if they act as if they have their users’ best interest at heart they can likely get away with gathering more and more data from the vast majority of users who are relatively clueless.

Here are a few of their ‘answers’ to privacy questions that users of Home will likely never truly investigate. The first question of the post speaks to just how uneducated many Facebook users are likely to be. In other words, Facebook has little to worry about.

Q: Do I have to use Home to access Facebook on Android?

A: No. Home is a new way to experience Facebook, and we hope people enjoy using it. But you won’t get Home unless you specifically choose to do so — either by downloading Home from the Play Store or by purchasing a phone with Home preinstalled.

Q: What information does Home collect?

A: Like other parts of Facebook, Home collects information when you interact with the service, such as liking or commenting on a post or sending a message. Home also may collect other information about how you use it. For example, Facebook maintains a list of the apps that you have in the Home app launcher. We store this information in identifiable form for 90 days and use it to provide the service and improve how it works.

For devices that come with Home preinstalled, Home can display system notifications, meaning that it will show notifications from apps on your phone. Since these notifications appear in Home, Facebook collects information about the notification (such as which app is generating them) but not the content of the notification itself. We remove identifying information from this data after 90 days.

Personally, I have no interest in Home. I don’t have specific reasons but it is a general feeling that how I use Facebook presently is more than sufficient and there is no reason to get sucked into a Facebook social vortex. I also doubt very much that iOS users will be rushing to Android devices just so they can get on board either. For these two reasons alone I wonder just how pervasive Home can actually become.

What are your impressions of Home? Will is make an impact in the marketplace? Since it is an Android only play is this simply Facebook’s way of further locking in those who have cheaper phones and are less likely to care about what Facebook is doing to them rather than what it is doing for them? And if the folks who may be the target of Home are not the ‘cream of the crop’ of Internet users what kind of advertising or what type of advertisers will likely benefit from the Home crowd?

Your thoughts?

Get Found, Make Money: Optimizing Apps for Search

State of App Search: Needle in a Haystack

Have you ever tried to meet someone at Grand Central Station or some other incredibly crowded venue? It sounds so doable and yet it is so not. There are too many people, too many distractions and too much stuff in the way.

App (tablet and phone applications) stores, both iTunes and Google Play Store have the same problem. Both have in excess of 750,000 files to paw through, download, try, remove and lather, rinse and repeat. It is likely true that for any problem “there’s an app for that,” but not an app tofind the app.

Now I know what you’re thinking. App stores are online and I can use the handy search feature to find the app of my dreams or needs. Well….maybe.  I ran a search using keyword productivity on both sites. In the search department, Google gets extra credit for a more pleasing search results display with icons, star ratings and a nifty description. However, points off for egregious self-promotion by soaking up 3 of the top 10 slots for Google Keep, Google Calendar (a productivity app?) and Google Drive.

Apple dispenses with search entirely and favors the top-down directory approach similar to that phone book you’re using to prop open the garage door (and equally as useful). An iTunes app category landing page is as easy to navigate as airport flight information boards. I am uncertain what the organization scheme might be, although it bears a striking resemblance to the one I use for my home office. I guess that Steve Jobs never had to use iTunes search or he certainly would have done something about that display.

Chart comparing Google Play and Apple iTunes app stores.

So, if you want customers to find your app for either location, you will have to “make it so” yourself and here’s how:

On the page app optimization

As with traditional SEO, both app stores start with traditional information retrieval systems that emphasize the presence of the query terms in the body content and the placement on the page to put together a search results page. Position on this results page is based on magical thinking (for Apple) and a variety of algorithms (for Google).

Keywords

Apple encourages the assignment of keywords to your application and makes it as difficult as possible. They must be using some sort of Stone Age search in Cupertino, or they all know where everything is and do not need any sort of search functionality at all.

There is a 100 character limit to the keyword field that includes the required comma separators. There is no phrase matching. If you want your app to appear for a phrase like “business news,” the keywords would appear together, e.g. business, news. Google stopped paying attention to keyword metadata a long time ago and Google Play Store is no exception.

Name

For both the Google Play Store and iTunes, the presence of keywords in the app name is rewarded. The keyword-rich name should also include terms that reference the app’s functionality e.g. Weather+ International Travel Weather Calculator.

Apple limits the app name to 255 characters with full display on that page-o-links that serves as search results. For its Staff Picks on the Google Play homepage, app name display is limited to 17-21 (I have seen more at 17 than 21) characters (including spaces) with anything that follows represented by an ellipsis.

App icon

Icons are a very good idea and eye candy is the purpose. The icon appears on the download page as well as in the Google Play search results.

Details page

In iTunes, the details page is limited to 4,000 characters with 700 cited as a best practice. One screen shot is required with the ability to include four additional screen captures. The description of the application and functionality should be keyword-rich with a compelling call to action as customer interaction is a significant indicator of relevance. Additional components that can be included: an instructional video, customer ratings and reviews.

Chart comparing Evernote Apps in Google Play and iTunes

Categories

In iTunes the app will be listed under a primary category with the opportunity to select a second category for additional customer query option. The best practice recommendation is to use the customer pain point resolved as a guide for the second category.

Off the page factors that influence ranking

There are influences outside of download page text that can influence ranking in iTunes application search results. The primary off the page ranking factors are:

Downloads: the number and rate of downloads are key drivers of results placement.

Installation base: how many customers actually install the app.

Removals: whether customers dislike the app enough to shake off their lethargy to remove it entirely. Both Google Play and iTunes take note of uninstalls as an indicator of relevance.

Customer reviews and ratings: whether customers give you stars or actually write something down on the page. It is very important that you pay attention to the feedback from your users and respond in some way.

Recommendations

Optimize the application itself.

  • Make sure that the performance speed is smokin’ fast
  • Reduce the file usage weights
  • Keep the application fresh with updates and enhancements

Build and sustain support from external assets.

  • Website support: placement of a permanent download icon or graphic on your website
  • Social media support: schedule tweets with a tiny URL, post to Facebook, pin on Pinterest and don’t forget regular updates on Google+ to sustain momentum

Reach out to key influencers.

  • Contact app blogs and promotion networks to get them excited and talking about your swell new app!
  • Encourage customer reviews and ratings

Gotchas for both

You will want to submit the app to both iTunes and Google Play Store at least two weeks before release as it takes time for the files to make their way through the Apple and Google processes. To do this, Google requires that you set up yet another account with the Google Play Developers Console to upload apps. The fee for doing so is $25. At least Apple lets you play without having to pay.

Is it just me or does this sound like the early days of SEO, the way it used to be 10 years ago with keyword sort-of-stuffing, key influencer outreach, and review “acquisition”? We might as well enjoy the waning days of this Luddite approach to SEO. No doubt Google is working on Panda-app as I write this post. Look for the icon below at the Google Play store. Or, more likely, it will come looking for you.

Grow Some Leads This Spring

Spring is finally here!  The weather is improving and everybody is starting to get outside.  The flowers are in bloom, and we can only hope that winter does not attempt to make a resurgence.

Spring is a great time to start anew and grow.  This is also a great time for businesses to catch some spring fever and attempt to grow their customer base.

If you are generating web traffic, especially to your landing pages, you have the seeds planted.  Now it is time to foster this traffic and create a strong CTA to let these visitors blossom into quality leads.

It only takes the smallest mistake to have your potential lead wither away and die, but don’t panic.  By making sure that your landing page and CTA have certain characteristics you can become a lead generation green thumb in no time!

10 Tips to Create a Strong CTA:

1. Keep it Short

Words to customers are like water to plants.  Too many of them and you will drown your visitors’ attention spans.  You only have a limited time to impress a visitor.  Make sure your visitors know what you are offering them, and entice them to provide you with contact information before they go elsewhere.

2. Be Direct

Just as many plants enjoy direct sunlight, most customers prefer direct language when choosing to take action.  Lengthy wording can come across as very shady and will turn customers away.  Don’t waste a customer’s time.  Use clear language that is consistent with the other pages of your website.

3. Give each CTA its own page

You wouldn’t put two large plants in the same pot, so why put two primary CTA’s on the same page?  Two CTA’s on one page creates conflict and confusion that could ultimately end up strangling the life out of both.  Your visitor was focused on doing one thing when they navigated to your landing page.  Keep it that way.

4. Promote your CTA through multiple channels

Feed your call to actions, just as you would feed your plants.  Give your CTA support from various outlets, including social media and your blog.  The more exposure that your various CTA’s get the better.

5. Personalize your CTA’s for various customers

Different potential customers are exactly like plants: they are all different.  Don’t link every customer to the same call to action, because it may not be applicable to them.  Try leading customers to various CTA’s to improve your chances of generating a lead.  Try A/B testing to drive traffic to your most popular CTA’s.

6. Utilize white space effectively

Think of the type of plant that you would put in your front window.  That is your call to action.  You want to showcase your CTA and make sure that it is visible to the customer.  Don’t clutter your CTA with multiple colors and text.  Use white space to draw the attention to your CTA and lead capture form.

7. Make your CTA’s something customers want

Would you give a plant soda?  I would hope not.  Just as plants don’t want human beverages, visitors don’t want to do something that does not benefit them.  We understand that you want a way to contact your potential lead, but remember your marketing.  The best way to create a strong CTA is to give customers what they want and create a mutually beneficial relationship.

8. Make sure your landing page is mobile friendly

Not all plants are lucky enough to be in the ground.  Some are confined to a much smaller pot.  Similarly, not all visitors are lucky enough to access their computers at all times.  Sometimes potential customers will only have access to their mobile devices.  To keep your channels of communication open, make sure that your landing page and CTA are mobile friendly.

9. Position testimonials on your landing page

Think of positive feedback from current customers as Miracle-Gro.  Statistics of benefits that you can provide and testimonials can provide an extra boost to grow your customer base.  Attempt to include some impressive statistics or testimonials on your landing page to support your call to action.  However, just like Miracle-Gro, don’t use too much!

10. Include secondary CTA’s

It is always nice to have a feature flower or plant, but one is the loneliest number.  Despite being focused, a landing page is still another chance to internally promote your business.  Rather than letting multiple primary CTA’s battle it out on one page, try linking to a secondary CTA.  Something as simple as a small link encouraging customers to subscribe to your blog is a great way to start an internal loop.

Sometimes it is the little things that you do that make all the difference.  Traffic is a great thing to have, but without some nurturing it fade away and those potential leads will wilt.  Make sure to feed, water and encourage your visitors to grow into customers.

Happy spring everyone!

How to get accepted into CPA networks?

Intro to CPA Networks

You may have heard that CPA marketing can be really lucrative, but do you understand what this type of marketing is all about?

CPA is about generating leads not sales and the initials stand for Cost Per Acquisition or Cost Per Action.

The more traditional method of affiliate marketing is a Cost Per Sale arrangement. As an affiliate you get paid once a person has purchased a product, you receive a commission on each sale.

With CPA marketing you get paid once the person has taken some form of action. This could be filling out an online form or signing up to a free trial, filling out a survey or even just signing up to a free dating site.

CPA marketing is becoming extremely popular and many new marketers think this is the road to making a fortune quickly. The biggest issue that people run into is in getting accepted into a CPA program in the first place.

There are some easy steps which you can take that will help your chances of being accepted increase substantially.

Step One: Finding a CPA Network

When choosing a CPA network you should only start out by using one or two of the larger networks. They will have more than enough offers for you to choose from. Plus by staying with fewer networks it will be easier to develop a relationship with your account manager.

To find CPA networks you can search for online CPA Directories. Below are a few networks to help get you started.

Neverblue
MaxBounty
Peerfly [RECOMMENDED] [NO PHONE VERIFICATION]
MundoMedia

Step Two: Fill out the Application Form

Visit your chosen network site and start going through the application process.

The majority of application forms are very similar and basically this is what you will need.
Personal Information: including Name, address, and email.

Tax ID Number: This may vary depending upon where you live. You may need to give them your social insurance number and a business EIN number and/or your Tax ID. If you are in a different country then enter zeros in this section and add your country of residence.

Website: Include the address of the website you intend to use. If you don’t have one then explain that you will be setting one up as soon as you are approved. Add a note here that you are happy to discuss your plans via a phone interview.

Experience: Include any relevant internet marketing experience.

Plan of Action: Explain how you will be promoting the CPA offers, will you be using PPC, SEO, email or video marketing or if you have other methods of driving traffic to a site.

Step Three: Call the CPA Network

Next and this is so important is to call the network! If you take the time to make one quick phone call you are almost guaranteed to be accepted into the CPA program. If you don’t have a website you can address this during the phone call. I suggest telling them that you want to make the site specific to their offer and this is why you haven’t set it up yet.

Plus by calling the CPA Network you are showing the account manager that you have initiative and are serious about promoting their offers!

Step Four: Be Prepared for the Network to Call You

Many CPA Networks will set up a time for a phone interview with you. This is nothing to be worried about and most phone interviews only last a few minutes.

Some of the questions you can expect to be asked include:

1. How long have you been promoting CPA offers?
2. What methods do you plan on using for promoting our offers?
3. Do you belong to other CPA networks and if so which ones?
4. How much traffic do you expect to generate?
5. How did you hear about our network?
6. What types of offers are you interested in promoting?

Step Five: Once Accepted

Once you have been accepted into the CPA network it is time to take action. Browse through their offers and see which ones you would like to promote. CPA is all about taking action, by taking immediate action you are showing the Network that you are totally serious about promoting them.

Even if you are not totally sure about how to drive enough traffic to the offers, take the time to learn all you can about traffic generation.

During this process be prepared to fail more than you succeed at first. Use these failures as a method to motivate you to go further. Each failure will bring you one step closer to success. As with any other business model CPA marketing takes time to learn and implement. Once you have learnt how to use this business model you will be on your way to earning a substantial income online.

How-to Find a Niche that hasn’t been done to Death

 

There are two sides of the coin:

    • Go with a niche that has a proven track record of earning money
    • Find a niche and become the authority

The trouble with both, unfortunately, is that marketing has found its way into every nook and cranny which is making it increasingly difficult to claim a piece of the “affiliate pie” since many businesses and individuals have the market cornered due to their legacy in the niche.
But … don’t worry …
The world is constantly expanding and we have this wonderful tool called the Internet which can help us find unique, untapped areas of the Web, culture, and consumerism that has yet to be tapped and saturated by too many marketers.
In this article, we’ll share one of the easiest ways to find these hard-to-find niches (that haven’t been done to death).

Finding those untapped niche markets

A niche is a segment of a larger market but you can go deeper when you begin to explore the niches within a niche (sub-niche that is).
Set a few parameters when you begin to do your niche research:

    • How many complete websites show up in the first 20 or 30 search listings (sites that are actually complete and not just some one page sales letter).
    • Does the niche have a forum? If so than you can use it to pull out ideas for your direction and weigh how well-known the niche may be to the bigger market.
    • Can I contact someone that’s been in the niche for some time to hear their opinion?

ReadWriteWeb has an excellent piece interviewing startups about how they find their niche which you should browse through. One response which jumps out is about redefining the community which shuffles the niche and restarts it right at the core.
In general: take your keywords and ideas, plug them into the Google Keyword Tool, and begin digging deeper into what’s available online. Check for available products, see who has the majority control on the niche, and measure what would happen if it were suddenly saturated by thousands of marketers.
Here’s what we’d recommend to verify the niche opportunity:
First, check affiliate marketplaces or in-house programs that have products currently available to the niche. Find products that sell by digging into the analytics provided on the network such as the gravity which will give you its general popularity with affiliates. Use what you’ve found to do additional research about the product providers to see what types of keywords, tone, and marketing strategies they’ve put into effect to carve out their placement in the niche.
Next, you’ll want to verify the market for your entry by going over to Google Trends and searching for some of the main keywords and topics used within the industry. Verify that the niche is on a trend going up in attention and that it has been around longer than just a few months.
You may also want to head over to SpyFu and use their tool which compiles the Google Adwords being used for particular keywords as they will give you a basic idea on whether people are spending money in the niche (which means that consumers seek available products).
Finally, use tools like Compete.com and Alexa.com to get an idea as to where certain websites rank within the niche. There will be a few individuals that may have already found the market so pay attention to what they’re doing, browse through their best posts, read the community comments, follow them on social networks, and do your proper competitor research.

But … just to make sure

Great, so you’ve found a niche that hasn’t been saturated but … are you sure it’s untapped because it’s fresh and unclaimed or because it’s not profitable?
You have to ask yourself:

    • What are people buying in this niche and how much do they usually spend?
    • How long does this niche hold an individual’s attention?
    • Is this just a passing fad or something that shows a potential trend?

Do your due diligence when it comes to the market research in this niche that you have found. An affiliate marketer needs products readily available to make their move into a niche otherwise one could be waiting around for years before something big comes along and it may be over by that time.
However, it’s also completely possible that you become the authority in the market by your entry especially if you’re the one to create an information product.

5 proven ways to promote Clickbank affiliate offers

clickbank-money
Before I start I want to be transparent and honest with you saying that I very rearly promote Clickbank offers.

Here’s why:

1. Latetly they get a lot of refunds.
2. Clickbank pay through checks (where I live).
This means I need to wait two fricking months until I see money in my bank account!

I mostly use Warrior Plus and promote Warrior Special Offers (WSOs).

1. You can ask for a review copy of the product owner to see what you will be selling. This applies to established affiliates only.
2. 100% commisions.
3. Less refunds.
4. Instant money to Paypal account baby! :-)

However, knowing that many new marketers start with Clickbank, for this particular reason I will focus on Clickbank offers in this post. Even though this works with any affiliate network offers.

By the way, the methods that I’m going to share below are personally tested. This is not something I made up for this post. This information is responsible for four figures a month in my business just by promoting affiliate offers.

I’ll tell you wich one is getting me the best results at the bottom of this post, so bear with me to the end :-)

Alright then, let’s get started:

youtube + clickbank

1. Clickbank + Youtube.

Youtube is hands down one of my favorite free traffic sources.

This business model is all about making honest review videos for your chosen Clickbank products.

I have a whole article about this method on my blog.

wordpress + clickbank

2. Clickbank + WordPress site.

This strategy involves creating a review type of website for a specific Clickbank product that is about to be launched.

There are many websites that tells you what products are gonna hit the Clickbank. Such us:JV Notify Pro and CBTrends.

So, step by step would look like this:

1. You simply buy the domain name: http://www.productnamereview.com.
2. Install wordpress and write a honest review.
3. SEO your site to get it on the top results of Google for a {Product Name Review} keyword.
4. Wait for the product to be launched and watch the money coming in.

bingads + clickbank

3. Clickbank + PPC or Media buying.

For this method you actually will need to buy traffic.
So, it’s not the best choice if you are just starting out.

However this is probably the most profitable business model.

Why?

Paid traffic = HUGE amout of traffic. You can buy a lot of them!

For pay per click I would recommend Bingads.com
For media buying – SiteScout.com

You can send traffic:
– directly to merchant’s landing page.
– your own pre-sale page.
– squeeze page to collect email addresses.

Test and see which one is giving you the best return on investment. I found that sometimes directing traffic to the product page is more poriftable then to my squeeze page.

email + clickbank

4. Clickbank + Email marketing.

Or you can use all of the methods above to drive traffic and build an email list.

Having a list, you will be able to recommend high quality Clickbank offers over and over again.

Imagine having 10,000 subscribers that are interested in business opportunities?
Depending on the quality of your subscribers, sending just one email could make you
anywhere from $1000 to $2000.

blog + clickbank

5. Clickbank + Blog (IM niche).

This is pretty simple.

Let’s say you are making money with Adsense and you are really good at it.
What you could do is start your personal blog and document your journey
by sharing your expertise on how you make money with adsense.

Having a blog lets you to:
1. Write product reviews.
2. Post valuable articles and include related affiliate products below the article.
3. Put affiliate banners on your blog.

You can browse through my blog posts to see all this in action.

Conclusion

I tried all of these methods, but today I mostly use two of them – email marketing and promoting affiliate offers on my blog.

But that’s just me. You may find that other methods work better for you.

I personally love to communicate with my followers through blog and email.
This also gives me an opportunity to recommend quality affiliate products that I find useful in my own business.

Email Marketing and Beyond

 There is a lot of buzz around social media, but email still remains the #1 online activity. Email is a preferred method of communication used by a wide range of demographic segments and decision makers who are not active on social media platforms. Compared to some other mediums, it offers better list management, segmentation, automation, reporting and analytics.

Basically, email gives you room for creativity without the 140 character restriction.

In spite of all these advantages, few marketers know how to use email to its full potential. When people ask me for advice on their email campaigns, I tell them to revisit the whole process and to focus on the following areas: subscription point, compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, list administration, content strategy, and marketing automation.

 

Subscription Point

People provide their email addresses to receive something valuable in return. You want to capture their name as well so you can personalize emails using mail merge.

In order to increase your email subscribers, my recommendation is to target the right visitors at the right time with the right message. I like to collect email addresses based on triggers and geo-targeted visits. Instead of asking all your visitors to subscribe to your email lists, you should ask only the ones who are not already subscribed or who visited specific web pages.

Compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act 

Subscribing people to your promotional mailing list without their permission is not okay. All email campaigns must comply with the CAN-SPAM Act, which means your subscribers have to opt in.

In addition, the CAN-SPAM Act states that you can’t use false or misleading senders and subject lines, that you must clearly identify yourself, and that you must give your contacts the option to opt-out and honour their request if they do so. For more information on the CAN-SPAM act, please visit the Bureau of Consumer Protection website.

List Administration

You should maintain your own opt-out lists outside your email tools. In case you are getting new data or you are changing email systems, you always want to check against your opt-out list to make sure unsubscribed contacts don’t make their way back in. The same practice should be applied to your bounce list, because there is no point in re-adding these people to your mailing lists.

Always check for duplicate email addresses and de-dupe email tracks against each other. For example, the leads you are nurturing should receive a completely different message than your existing customers. You don’t want the same person to receive emails from different tracks or, at worst, to receive the same email twice. It will hurt your brand.

List segmentation allows you to put people in different buckets, so you can target them differently.  An apparel boutique would want to present a different selection of items to their male customers than to their female customers.

Content Strategy

The golden rule is to present personalized messages that bring value to the reader. Different strategies should be tested on a monthly basis, and content should be adjusted based on which strategy shows better engagement. You can’t just blast the same message into the crowd on a recurring basis and expect a positive response from your audience.

A mix of both text and image CTAs works best. Many email programs do not display images right away; they prompt the reader to accept viewing images from unknown senders. This is a security feature to protect the reader from inappropriate content, and that is why I advise against heavy use of pictures. Your message must be communicated through an appropriate combination of both text and images.

 

Results Interpretation

You can make informed decisions about your content only if you know how to interpret your results.

All email tools allow you to see who opened the email and who clicked on what links. A high open rate indicates a strong sender and subject line, while a high click-through rate indicates engaging content. Receiving an email from John Smith is not as strong as receiving an email from “John Smith, CEO”.

To increase your open rate, I recommend you test different subject lines. Most email tools will allow you to do an A/B test. They will send Subject Line Version A to 10% of your list and Subject Line Version B to another 10%. Based on the results, the system will then automatically use the best performing subject line for the remaining 80% of your list.

People clicking certain links become your leads because they expressed interest in certain parts of your content. It is very cost effective to follow up with a telemarketing campaign targeted at only the people who clicked specific links, as opposed to calling everyone.

Marketing Automation

Can an email sending tool generate leads automatically? Unfortunately the answer is no, unless you are using marketing automation.

The real advantage of email marketing is drawn from the benefits provided by all in one marketing automation systems.

With marketing automation systems, content can be automatically adjusted based on visitor behavior, geography, and context. Landing pages, forms, and surveys should all be working together in sync. For example, when someone registers for an event, you should follow up with an email containing the agenda and location details. As well, reminding webinar registrants 15-minutes beforehand via SMS results in a significant increase in attendance.

Email tools track links clicked within the email only; they are not able to track further steps visitors take on your website. This is one of the main advantages of marketing automation tools. Having a history of all pages visited, content downloaded, and emails received gives you the power to understand all touch points. Understanding all touch points allows you to better map your customer’s journey in the buying process.

Predictive marketing capabilities let you understand the differences between your customers so you can anticipate what they will want to buy before you launch a promotion.

Conclusion

Whether you simply want to send out a newsletter or go beyond and get into advanced marketing automation practices, it is good to know what features are available for email marketing campaigns. In the end, it all comes down to what you are trying to achieve and how are you going to use it to your advantage.
