Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black Ops

Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black Ops

Are you one of those poor guys who are not making any money from Internet Marketing yet? You are the target for these 2 new products. Here you go… Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black Ops.
I’ll bet you’ve been bombarded with emails about one of these products already and you’re about to hear a lot about the other.
Two apparently very similar products with identical aims – to help you make money from a standing start. Which one will help you earn more?
Let’s start with what each of these is about.
Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black OpsCommission Black Ops by Michael Cheney was released first of the two and, as usual with one of Michael’s products, it hits hard, letting you know your pains very quickly – low commissions, poor open rates, bad click throughs and what you should do about them. Each section is contained within military terminology, giving it an air of macho, but it all makes sense when put together.
Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black Ops





If Commission Black Ops is tough talking and slightly ‘jingoistic’ (Michael will jump on me for using that word, but it fits what I’m saying) then Affiliate Cash Map by Lemy Yu is the pacifist view of the world. Everything is laid out for you, step by step and done at a pace that anyone could follow.
Affiliate Cash Map starts at the beginning and doesn’t hit pain points but does lead the absolute beginner to the point where they will be making money.
And there’s the point where things get different. Commission Black Ops assumes you have the basics in place and that you need your butt kicking for the things you’re doing wrong. I admit to having a sore rear-end after going through it all. It was also not just a big seller in its opening week… It was HUGE!
Affiliate Cash Map however doesn’t assume a damn thing about you and is definitely the better product if you are a total newbie. There’s no butt kicking and it’s more like being stroked with scented bootlaces. It’s further down the learning curve but it’s none the worse for it, if that’s what you need.
Depends on how you like to learn and what you NEED to learn.
Following the ideas in Commission Black Ops will certainly put more money in your pocket PROVIDED you have done everything in Affiliate Cash Map to get yourself to the point where you can use the ideas.
So what to recommend to you in the battle of Affiliate Cash Map vs Commission Black Ops?
If you’re an affiliate marketer already then Commission Black Ops will be your target – even if you missed the opening offers.
If you’re a new marketer then get Affiliate Cash Map, get set up, then comeback and grab Commission Black Ops because it will save you a ton of heartache and get your earning potential off to a great start.

A Savvy Buying Public Expects More Than Honesty

A Savvy Buying Public Expects More Than Honesty

Consumers these days are very smart. They are hypersensitive to marketing gimmicks and paranoid about being conned with slick advertisements. This generation grew up with television and the commercial advertisements that literally ruled the marketplace and human behavior. In doing so, they became inoculated to many of the psychological triggers that were a bit underhanded, but powerful non-the-less.

Honesty They also can spot a con a mile away, so that you have to be extra careful to be as honest and forthright as possible. The payback though is that if you are squeaky clean honest, not just with the good features of your products but the bad ones too, people will tend to value your opinions as a marketer more. You will trigger a deep psychological appreciation of your honest behavior in a sea of dishonest merchandisers. That’s why honesty has to be one of the top psychological triggers to implement when you are doing any type of marketing, online or otherwise.

The Strategy

Honesty is similar to authenticity, except it is a tad more straight forward. You can be authentic about who you are and still misrepresent the products you sell based on your spotless image of personal integrity. Honesty, in this case, is to be truthful – plain and simple. We aren’t talking about the truth that you would like to believe, it is about the truth of what the consumer would like to hear. For that, you need to have their best interest at heart, and that’s the role of honesty in your life. You have to take into account that even though selling is about making money, if you sell something that ultimately dupes the consumer in any way, it will come back to bite you in the butt in the end. It may take a while, but it will come back eventually. In today’s social networking climate, the payback may be sooner than you think.

Social networking sites are great sites to establish a presence and start cultivating a bigger contact list. You build a circle of friends that trust you and will listen to your status updates and newsfeeds. You develop more connections in groups. All these interactions need to have a degree of authenticity and honesty. When you post a link back to your site, you want to be sure it leads to an honest way of doing business. Otherwise, the first person on the network that gets scammed will send out a general message to all their friends to avoid you, and then those friends will turn around and do the same. Once your reputation as an honest person is lost on a social networking site, most of your marketing opportunities are gone too. This is particularly true if you seek to increase the number of friends in your list solely to market them.

Honesty There are instances when people send messages or post updates that are viewable by all their friends that certain people are “spammers” and not to accept them as friends. That’s all it takes to get you silently blacklisted even if your account remains current with the host site. So, always seek to add value and bring an honest level of interaction to social networking sites in particular.

When you recommend a product, your product or someone else’s, be sure they understand the relationship you have with the vendor, what you think of it in detail, and let them know if you are an expert or not. If the product has faults, don’t shove them under the rug. It’s more than likely the consumers will pick up on those faults as objections and if you leave them unaddressed you’ve lost the sale. So, always address the faults and either reframe them or make them insignificant. If the fault is major, just don’t sell that product. The choice is yours.



Affiliate Cash Map review & bonus

Affiliate Cash Map review & bonus

Affiliate Cash Map is a new product produced by Lemmy Yu. As its name suggests it’s all about learning how to be an affiliate marketer, taking from from, point zero, knowing nothing – but having the desire to succeed, all the way through to earning 6 figure, job-quitting money.

First of all, here’s my video review…

Affiliate Cash Map – contents

The main ‘bones’ of Affiliate Cash Map are 9 videos taking you through picking a niche and product, setting up a squeeze page and email list, sending traffic to the list, building a relationship with that list and turning subscribers into customers. Lemy then goes on about how to turn those customers into avid buyers of more of your offers and making the whole thing into a 6 figure a year business.

You might think that this is nothing that hasn’t been done before, and you’re probably right. However, Lemy has made this so simple that a total internet newbie could pick up Affiliate Cash Map and run with this very successfully. The reason for this is that after the videos there is a selection of bonus items to help even the newest newbie to get going – especially the Basic IM Guide item. For the newcomer, this is a great course in its own right and even for the experienced people out there, there are still a fair few who don’t know how to put their own pages together so this will help their knowledge too.

The last part of the download section is the audio mp3 extract of the Affiliate Cash Map videos. Having these means you can load them up on your phone, tablet or music player and be able to listen at a convenient time and place. The fact that ALL the elements are individually downloadable is a great bonus really. So many marketers force to you to watch or listen to their stuff online online, meaning that you miss a chance to learn at a time where you might not have internet access.

Affiliate Cash Map – What’s it going to cost?

The best bit of all though is that Affiliate Cash Map costs you less than $10. That’s 9 videos totalling over 90 minutes, 5 ebooks, Basic IM Training, 9 audios plus all the other bonus bits and pieces that are in there. Making it less than 45c per item. Where else are you going to get training of this quality for that sort of price?

So CLICK HERE to get Affiliate Cash Map for this great price. I’m including a huge IM bonus package, including my own resource book and if you buy through my link, I will add my personal email support as well.

P.S. The video above was my second attempt. My first ran to over 7 minutes which is way too long for a review video, even for a product as good as Affiliate Cash Map. You can watch it here…

I am quite pleased to say that by using various techniques I’ve been shown by other people that each of these videos hit the top spot of Google searches (for Affiliate Cash Map and Affiliate Cash Map review search terms), even beating Lemy Yu’s own pages. Whether they’re still there after a while is another thing entirely, but it goes to show that anyone can hit the top spot of you have the right techniques!

Free WSO – What’s the Point? Discover How The Free WSO can be your friend.

What’s the Point of Selling a Free WSO?

You see free WSO (Warrior Special Offers) quite often if you go in the sales area of the Warrior forum. They are great for collecting the email addresses of known marketers – the very people who use the Warrior forum. For $20 to $40 (they keep changing the price) you can put your ad up and people will hopefully see it before it gets buried under a pile of similar ads. You can bump it up by paying for the privilege and if it’s working for you – getting more than 20 sign ups per pump would probably be a good metric, then it is worth doing. Since Warrior has thousands of visitors daily, you have a good chance of doing some serious list growing business at a reasonable price.

These free WSO are often ‘sold’ through WarriorPlus, an associated site, not controlled by the Warrior Forum, because it makes the whole thing easy to manage and JVZoo doesn’t let you sell stuff without a price tag. The free WSO can be the front end of a managed funnel with WarriorPlus acting as the management system for directing upsells and downsells. All very good for the product creator.

Now these free WSOs can also be of use to you. Don’t have a free product of your own? Build a squeeze page showing the benefits of the free WSO and send your new sign ups to the free WSO offer. If it is at the front of a funnel, then you have a ready-made opportunity. Your actual sales may not be that great as the people will have had to go through 2 squeeze pages to get the offer, but yours was there first, and you can always offer ‘bonuses’ in your follow up emails.

How to find a Free WSO

To find them, sign up with WarriorPlus (if you haven’t already) and 1) go to the Affiliates Tab and 2) select the ‘get links’ sub menu. 3) Next type [FREE_WSO] into the search block and over the other side select 4) Show: All Offers before 5) clicking the orange search button. Ignore the offers highlighted in blue at the top as they are paid advertising (unless they appeal to you, of course).

Here’s some graphical help:

Free WSO As you can see, this brought up 245 items that contain the search term [FREE_WSO]. I can’t promise they will all be gems, but there are often some diamonds of information and just because they’re free doesn’t mean they’re worthless. To request permission to sell a particular item you will need to click a blue ‘Request’ button to the right of the stats. If you already have permission, the button will be green and say ‘Get Links’.

Here’s a video on using your own free WSO to make money:

If nothing else, this will be a great source of information for you but if you offer these to new or existing subscribers, you are giving them another source of quality information and maybe a few sales for yourself. Of course, you could even take it as inspiration to create your own free WSO to grow your list with and for others to promote for you.

I’d really be pleased and proud if you would share this on your own social pages – Handy buttons are provided below.

Practice Should Make Perfect – Eventually

Practice Should Make Perfect – Eventually

Well I know one thing… It’s been ages since I posted here so I should at least explain what I’ve been up to.

In some ways, not a lot although in other ways, quite a lot. I’ve been appearing more on social websites, mostly Facebook and Twitter, offering assistance and pearls of wisdom to those who want to see it. This has got me a lot more friends and followers on both and so is increasing my brand and web presence, to the point now where I’m being asked to join product creation groups and accountability partnerships. The former – well I’ve tried a couple and although the initial interest was there from the others, things and stuff got in their way and it all came to naught. The latter needs a bit more success to demonstrate on my part to make sure of what I’m telling someone really is worth telling.

My income has been climbing. It’s slow but I can see an improvement and it seems to coincide with financial or hard work on my part – so finding the right things to do is getting results, then it’s just a matter of doing more of the same.

One thing I have found that is fun and easy (mostly) is via a system called Affiliate Tube Jacker. It explains a very simple way of ranking a video on Google via YouTube in a matter of a few minutes, then, assuming it ranks high enough, actually creating the video via another simple method.

One thing I have learned from this is that I need to work on my presentation skills. I am full of ‘erm, err’, mis-pronunciations and stuttering over my words. However, I know this will improve with practice, something that I can do offline as well as online.

Here’s an example of my early work. Things (as they say), can only get better…

In case you’re interested – $2k Pay Days is well worth investigating and better without my commentary! At the time of writing though, the video was in top place on Google for 2k Pay Days and 2k Pay Days Review as seen here:

I got the video to that position in only 13 minutes too! As you can see though, there is no competition for the keyword and finding that sort of product is part of the secret. For the rest, you’ll have to look at Affiliate Tube Jacker for yourself. I can’t give it all away (grin).

So although my earnings won’t set the world alight just yet, I can confidently say that taking action does bring results, which brings me round to the question…

Are YOU taking action too? If you are, tell me in the comments box below, what you’re doing and how it’s doing for you.

If you’re not taking action, why not? Are you stuck on something? Don’t be afraid to ask for help as getting over that little hurdle may well lead you on to bigger and better things.

As always, please feel free to share this article socially by using the buttons below and if you want to stay in regular contact with me, join my list at  You get a free ebook of Online Passive Income Ideas to help you get started and there’s always more advice and free give-aways sent out with my emails, which, by the way, are not all sales and hype.

Let’s hope it’s not too long before my next update on here as I’m sure there’ll be more to tell you about soon.And perhaps better voice overs too!

How to build a responsive list with $5 of Bing ads

How to build a responsive list with $5 of Bing ads-

Full step by step tutorial.

addtext_com_MTY0MjE0NTU3ODM Are you getting enough traffic? Have you got a list to make money from? Still spinning your wheels? Want to build a list for 10 cent per click?

If you answered ‘yes‘ then stick around as I am going to show you, step by step, how to build an email list with just a measly $5 a day.

If you want to make money online, escape the 9-5, go on more vacations and live the laptop lifestyle then you need to build an email list.

I am sure you may have heard that ‘the money is in the list’, right? But why?

Well with your own list you own that traffic and you can send that traffic anywhere.

Just grab an affiliate link and some swipes and make money the same day. On average each subscriber is worth $1 per month. if you grow your list to 1000 you could be set to earn $1000 a month.

You should reinvest this money and get 2000, 5000, hell even 10,000 subscribers and make $10,000 a month online

The sky truly is the limit.

Right now, without asking you for a sale or even your email address I will show you, with screen shots, and step by step, how to build a list in any niche with just $5 a day with Bing.

Are you ready?

Let’s go!


Monetizing with affiliate marketing!

 So it’s sounds too good to be true right?

Copy and paste email templates and make $10,000 a month, it’s unheard of.

How do you make money this way, I hear you ask.

Well you’re essentially creating a list of leads and marketing digital products and making a commission on each sale.

Big name marketers create their own digital products and give all the profits to affiliates and JV (Joint Venture) partners so they can build their own list of customers. Then they can sell them more products and services in the future

You’ve giving them the leads, they’ve given you some income.

They’re happy, you’re happy. It’s a win, win situation. The best kind!

It’s a great system and it means for newbies you can get started very fast. Just grab an affiliate link and set up a lead capture page (no HTML or technical knowledge needed!). You build a list of leads and sell them that product through your link. Then sell them more products down the line!

Just send them emails with the link in.

Many marketers tell you what to email through ‘swipes’ which can be found on their affiliate pages.

So where do you get an affiliate link and how much to promote?

It’s free and it’s simple.

Just head over to  and sign up, take a note of the nickname (you will need it), then head over to the marketplace, pick a niche. The popular ones are health, wealth and romance.

Sort the results out by gravity from high to low and pick one with between 50 – 100 gravity.

High gravity means affiliates are making a profit, If the gravity is too high, you may have a lot of competition.

Below is a quick screenshot.


Click the link and have a look at sales page as well

Would you buy it? if you wouldn’t, what makes you think anyone else would? Find something that appeals to you. This will also make it easier for you to get enthusiastic about it in your follow up emails (if they don’t buy immediately).

It’s probably best to pick something which sells for less than $20 too. If it’s too expensive people tend to think more before acting. You want to grab them while they’re still grateful for receiving your free gift.

Pick a product that you yourself would buy and once you’re happy hit the promote button, put in the nickname you signed up with and hit promote again and you will get a link. Copy the top link and you’re good to go :)



You’re now ready to make a commission with that product!

Creating bait in exchange for an email address

Once you have your product to promote. Now it’s time to create content that you can give away in exchange for an email address, in case they don’t buy first time round you can follow up with email marketing.

Now you can actually get done for you guides to giveaway with ebook covers and such.

They are called private label rights ebooks or PLR for short and for the price of getting an e-cover design from fiverr (online store that sells services for $5) you can grab an e-book to giveaway. You may also find videos or audio products, which will seem much more attractive to your potential subscribers.

So where to grab one,

the above websites all have them. (There are plenty more, but these ones are good for starters).

Just make sure before you make your purchase ensure it does say you that have giveaway rights on the rights page (usually scroll down on the product page to see the rights)


Creating a lead capture page

To giveaway the PLR ebook you need an email address and you need to create a web page that collects email address so you can mail the subscriber the report.

For this you’re going to need hosting and domain, as you do for any Internet marketing business. If you’re not sure on how to do this, research it on YouTube. Look up “Setting Up A WordPress Site”.

Then you can download both free or premium plugins to turn your domain into a squeeze page.

First things first… domain and hosting

Head over to Hostgator. It’s cheap, popular and you can download WordPress at the click of a button.

(everything is drag and drop with WordPress)

>>>>> Hostgator and use the coupon code SLM10Discount

(It’s an affiliate link. I’ll get some profit if you buy. I thought I would let you know, I practice what I preach :)  )

For a domain name choose something catchy and related to your niche. If you’re truly stuck just use your name or an easy to remember variation of it,

Once you have your hosting and domain it’s time for an auto-responder, so you can email your leads.

You can start your free month at Get Response

>>>>>>  grab Get Response here

it’s a great service and I have had no problem with them.

Now it’s time for lead capture software to capture them leads.

Lead capture software.

Now you can get it for free by installing a plugin on WordPress. Just click plugins on your WordPress dashboard and search for “wp-landing pages” then press Install Now.


Once it installs click ‘activate’ and you’re good to go :) .  Alternatively, if you want something with a short video background, grab the free Video Optin plugin

Creating the squeeze page

 For a converting squeeze page you need a headline and an email field. Just give the outcome of the freebie as the headline.

Something like:

Free Report Reveals . . . The 5 Simple Steps Anybody Can Take To make $100 a day online by a simple blog”

With wp-landing pages that is all you need it’s a great little plugin. Have a look at this Demo Landing Page  to see what I mean.n Alternatively, if you want  a short movie clip background to catch the visitor’s eye, take a look at Video Optin Page, a free plugin. CLICK HERE to grab your copy.

Not bad for free plugins.

As you get good and the profit comes rolling in you may want to invest in a paid plugin such as InstaBuild 2.0 to get more conversions.

Once you have your link, your freebie and lead capture page it’s time for the traffic :) .

Oh and one last thing… In Get Response, put the Clickbank affiliate link as the thank you page. It is found in settings. So once they opt-in they get  redirected to the product. 🙂 You can deliver their free giveaway in the first email you send from the autoresponder.

Research keywords  

Here is the plan,

We’re focusing on Bing traffic because it’s cheaper than Google, often 10 cents per click or less.

What is going to happen is that you will select keywords that people are searching for. People will put these keywords into Bing and at the top will be a link to your squeeze page.

You will just need to pay a small fee when someone clicks the link.

Because you have a converting product you should make your money back and more with the affiliate product.

There is some really good news for the newbies,

If you have never used Bing ads before you can get a coupon to get $50- $100 of free credit.


The first step you need to is search for Bing ads through Google or Bing and the coupon should be the first link. (you must sign up to Bing through that link)

Create your Bing ad account including your payment details, and contact details etc, then we can research keywords.

If you’re stuck contact support. They are excellent.

The first thing you need to do is go to the Google keyword planner (more in-depth data) and click on the link that says ‘ search for a new keyword using a phrase, website or category’

To do that you need to press ‘skip the tutorial’ offered with a new Adwords account and then go to tools and keyword planner.

You then need to put in a few keywords associated with the niche of the productSo for example if you picked an internet marketing product just put in keywords such as ‘make money online’, ‘affiliate marketing’ etc.

see below


Once you clicked ‘get ideas’, you then:

  1. press the ad group ideas
  2. add them all to a plan
  3. download the plan
  4. copy and paste the keywords into notepad for now.


Now to get more keywords (more is better)

Go to

Copy and paste the keywords from your notepad and get more:


then copy and paste them back into notepad.

How to set up Bing ads

Now you have your keywords it is time to set them up in Bing!

Press ‘create campaign’, then copy as follows


(currency should be in dollars but because I am in the UK it’s gone to British sterling)

  1. Put in the product name as campaign name
  2. Put in the time zone of the country you want to target (US)
  3. Set campaign cost as $5 daily
  4. Set as English language
  5. Select ‘cities, states/provinces, countries/regions, and postal codes.’ for locations you want to target.
  6. Then select tier one countries i.e US, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand. There is nothing wrong with targeting English speakers in other industrialised countries. There just might not be as much response.
  7. In advanced targeting option select  ‘show ads to people in your targeted location’.

Ad copy

Next up is what to put in the ad copy to get people to click the ad. Now to grab people’s attention you need to ask a  ‘yes’ question…

A question that is going to get a ‘yes‘ as the answer!

Below you need to tell them what to do, tell them what they are going to get and why they should get it.

So call to action+freebie+outcome

see below:

bing ads 6

An example:




Add the keywords below by copying and pasting in the box on the left and pressing add, then press save.

Change the network bid to 0.40 (to get those 1st page views).

bing ads 7


The cost per click should be a lot lower, often less than 10 cent per click!

If they are higher then that means the keyword has high competition. Try using more ‘long tail’ keywords, which are keywords with more than three words in them and delete the expensive keywords.

On the next screen press keywords, tick the top left box, click edit and press ‘change current bids’.


Leave this blank and the bid will go to 0.40 per bid for all your keywords.

Enable your campaign and you’re good to go. :)

So there you have it. How to build a list with Bing for just $5.


  • Grab an affiliate link off Clickbank
  • Get a related PLR content
  • Install w-p landing pages to get a free squeeze page
  • Get related keywords from Google keyword planner
  • Set it all up in Bing.

As your profits grow, reinvest and build a bigger list to make more money.

Remember that, on average, each subscriber is worth around $1 per month.

Now you have the traffic going to your squeeze page, you will need to create an email follow up sequence to sell that product for you over the coming days after the subscriber has opted-in. Set up your autoresponder to tell your subscribers more about the same offer, something about you (so that they will know, like and trust you) and about more offers.

Also consider moving buyers off the original list and onto a new list. One that is dedicated to people who are willing to spend their money. Treat them well in your emails, with more information to help them in their efforts. They will reward you by buying higher priced offers from you, so long as these offers are related to the original purchase in some way. It’s no good trying to offer fishing tips to someone who signed up for a dog training course.

Bear in mind though that Clickbank will not send you a cheque (or bank transfer if you set up your bank details with them) until you have exceeded a pre-set amount and it may be several weeks after you made the original sale. This is in case a buyer changes their mind and wants a refund. This is NOT an instant payment system.

To get instant payments, go back to the PLR sites and find a package that includes a pre-built website. You will need to learn how to do the following:

  • Modify the website to add your details (like your name, contact details, etc.)
  • Create a payment button at Paypal and install it on your site.
  • Upload your site onto your domain, either on a sub-domain or a sub-directory.
  • Send your new subscribers to your newly created sales site.

When they buy from it, the money will go straight to your Paypal account.

I strongly recommend keeping at least $100 in your Paypal account to allow for people who want refunds, and to stop Paypal freezing your account so readily.


Now you’ve read through all this, all that is missing is for you to take action. There are other text ad sources you can use that may be even cheaper than Bing. It’s up to you to research them and use them.

Why You Should Have A Membership Site for Passive Income

Why You Should Have A Membership Site

Every marketer wants income, after all, that’s why we do it, to make income and one of the most consistent ways of making income is to have a membership site. By setting up and running a membership site we will have predictable and regular income, so long as we can keep up a good supply of information so that subscribers stay with the site for a good while. This might seem a lot of effort to keep up fresh content but it need not be so. By using the right plugin a WordPress site can be turned into a drip feed system so that a new subscriber to your membership site will begin at post 1 and be fed a new batch of information at regular intervals.

There are some free plugins that are quite basic and allow a single level of membership and expose everything all at once, whereas a drip feed plugin or one that exposes different amounts to different levels of membership usually have a premium price tag, but for the ease of effort they help to alleviate they are well worth the money.

If you want to find out more about setting up and running a membership site you need to take a look at Monthly Membership Blueprint which gives you all the help you need to set up a monthly payment membership site. Don’t worry, it’s a small one off payment and there is a video upgrade if you prefer to see rather than read all about it. Also included in the standard package is a mind map, check list and resource section to help you get everything started as easily as possible.

Turbo Tweet Multiplier – Reaching Out Further

Turbo Tweet Multiplier – Reaching Out Further by Getting Retweets

We all know that social media sharing is a great way to get a message out way beyond our normal reach. If we can ask, convince or bribe someone else to share on their page then we have an extra number of people who will see our message and there is also the implied endorsement of the person who has shared. One of the best platforms for encouraging sharing is Twitter using retweets.

Of course, retweets can get retweeted again by other people and so the message can go viral, but these have to be a special kind of message – something that really grabs readers attentions and says that “I want you to see this too”. Think about Ellen DeGeneres’ all star photo from an awards ceremony. Retweeted around the world several times and now famous, just for that fact let alone who else was in the picture.

How can we, as marketers replicate that sort of interest in tweeting our message in the first place?

Simple – we add a reward to the person who does a tweet for us. They get their reward immediately after the tweet. Then we use their details to retweet the message daily for the next 20 days. That ensures that pretty much everyone on their Twitter feed will see that message and if they see it repeated so much then they will be sure that it is worth while following up. They come to your page, decide they want the reward as well. They also tweet for the reward for the next 20 days to their followers. Can you see how this would send even the most ordinary message to a state of viral awareness?

What to choose as a reward? Well your visitors should know what they’re coming to your blog for. You came here for marketing tips and you’re specifically reading now about Twitter marketing, so if I were to offer a reward then it would be social media marketing related and I would find a report or video that gave you more ideas on that topic. If your niche is different then you would select something else, but related to your niche.

Turbo Tweet Multiplier – WordPress Plugin

By now, you’re probably itching to know if there is a miracle piece of software that can offer a reward in return for tweeting about the page and then retweeting it for the next 20 days and of course there is. It’s called Turbo Tweet Multiplier and it’s a WordPress plugin. It installs as easily as any other WordPress plugin and only takes a bit of configuring before it’s ready to go. There is an instructional video and written instructions are included as well. You merely add your giveaway and put a shortcode in the appropriate place of your post. People will click on a button which pops up a ready written tweet for them and they hit the Tweet button. They return to the original page to find a download unlocked for them. They collect their reward and leave happy.

Meanwhile, for the next 20 days, the plugin will retweet the page on their behalf – much the same as many websites already do – ensuring that they are doing their bit to share your message which will bring in more people to you page to do it all again.

Now you might think there are already plugins that do this, like Social Locker which locks part of a page until a social share has been made, but they only share once. Turbo Tweet Multiplier does it 20 times, vastly increasing the reach of your message and the chances of it being seen.

The price of Turbo Tweet Multiplier is only $10 which, I’m sure you’ll agree, is a very low cost for something as powerful as this. It doesn’t have to be used for marketing either. Use it for any post you want to share. You’re rewarding sharers and they are helping you. It’s a win-win situation.


It’s been a quiet month

In fact it’s been way too quiet at least as far as this blog goes. I’ll be getting email enquiries soon asking if I’m still alive and if my domains are up for grabs. No such luck.

Yes I have been quiet on here and I have no excuses really. I’ve got a couple of new products – well derivatives of some quality PLR stuff that have taken a lot of time to get right along with an interesting course I’ve been perusing. So I’ll tell you about them.

First of all I got hold of a Periscope course PLR. Periscope is video Twitter to put it simply. You broadcast live streaming video from your phone and anyone who wants to can pick up the stream and watch. Viewer interaction is by text only. This course is aimed at businesses to use Periscope to interact with their customers either as a sales and advertising tool or customer support, especially in a crisis situation. If you’re interested, there is a free 5 day course that starts HERE and gives you the outline of using Periscope. If you want into the full video course – Periscope Marketing Mastery, here it is. 10 videos for less than $10 and all you need to get started except for a mobile phone and the Periscope download.

The course I’ve been getting into myself is Jimmy Kim’s Build My List 2.0. Now this is an all video course, which are not normally my favourites but I’ll make an exception for this one. As you might expect it’s al about encouraging you to build an email list and the various methods you can use. As part of the course you are offered (as well as the training videos) – an ebook for your subscribers to download implanted with your own affiliate link to the course, several great sources of paid traffic – sources that Jimmy uses himself and are guaranteed high quality, a collection of downloads you can also use to entice your visitors to become subscribers and the real icing on the cake, as far as I’m concerned, is 3 months free use of the Sendlane autoresponder. I don’t know of any other list building course that gives you an autoresponder, which is essential if you’re building a list, as part of the course. There’s a bit more to Build My List 2.0, but I can’t tell you everything now, can I!

Included in Sendlane is a graphical page builder that is quick and intuitive to use and hosting for those pages, although you can self host them too if you want to. It’s way better than Aweber’s and Get Responses page builders, and bear in mind the GR’s is an extra cost add on to your bill. Sendlane also includes basic link tracking and other expected autoresponder features. The prices at the end of the 3 months free trial are reasonable too. Certainly competitive with the other two.

The final thing I’ve been doing in November is working on a software release. Again it’s a PLR package and this one is a WordPress plugin helping blog owners to get their posts shared on Twitter. Called Turbo Tweet Multiplier, it comes in 3 packages (Basic, Pro & RR) which all need setting up with my details as well as the supplied web pages modifying with my details. The idea behind this one is that content is locked until the reader has tweeted about it to their followers. The content can be a download (Basic) or some html which can include an optin form (Pro). The squeeze freebie is also very good. 4 videos and 10 articles on social marketing accessed via a clean looking dashboard.

Because of the number of elements in Turbo Tweet Multiplier ( An optin page, 3 sales pages, 4 download pages, 2 plugins to personalise and all the bonus stuff), setting this all up has taken a good deal of time and brain power. A few of the things that need to do are a bit circular in nature – you can’t set A up until you know the address of B which needs item C in place, the contents of which need to know where A is. The trick here is to set place-holders and remember to go back later and reset them. Then test, test and test again.

Now it’s nearly December and I have a growing list, 2 new products to push, as well as a couple of smaller items I’ve done in between times. All I need now is traffic. Lots of traffic… But then again, don’t we all!

Please feel free to add your comments below or email me directly if you want to. Definitely feel free to share this site on your social links using the buttons provided and I look forward to making contact again with you all soon.

Easy YouTube Marketing Tips

Easy YouTube Marketing Tips

As you probably know, YouTube is the 2nd biggest search engine and the third most visited site on the internet which makes it pretty useful for marketers to both show their wares and to pass on free information. But there’s a lot of things that can go go wrong when adding your video – assuming you make a decent one in the first place! Here are some easy YouTube Marketing tips for you.

If you are making a video for marketing, keep it short. Two to five minutes is enough really. Too many people feel like they have to talk for hours but all that does is switch your viewer off and they move onto the next video. If you have a lot to say on one topic, consider breaking it down into 2, 3 or more videos. You then have the advantage of multiple chances of being found.

Put a web link somewhere in the first 2 lines of your description. Although you can write much more (and you should), much of it gets hidden behind behind the ‘See More’ link. Having your link as the first thing people see means it is much more likely to be clicked.

Your description should be keyword rich but not just be a keyword list. Sooner or later, YouTube will crack down on these descriptions and if you have a hundred or more videos it could be a right pain to go and edit all of them so that you comply. Treat it like a blog post or comment and write real sentences which make proper sense.

If you have a number of videos to put up, don’t do them all at once. One every few hours – so no more than 4 to 6 a day, spread out. By all means have everything prepared offline – descriptions in documents etc. but don’t make Google and YouTube suspicious that you’re planning a full scale assault.

If you’re putting up PLR videos then take the time to customise them by adding your own intro and / or outro sequence. I’ve had an intro done on Fiverr and I use Windows Movie Maker, which is free, to join it to any video I use. It personalises the video to me then, even if it’s not my voice the viewers hear. Make sure these intros are not more than 5 to 7 seconds long. You don’t want to bore your viewer too soon.

Finally – make good use of annotations at key points of the video. If there’s a lull or a plain bit of screen add a description or link for 8 to 15 seconds and certainly include one at the end. If you confirm yourself with YouTube – a matter of getting a phone call or text from them, you will be allowed to use live, clickable links in your annotations. If you don’t wish to confirm yourself, just use the annotation to tell the viewer that there’s a link in the description box below.
