Take No Prisoners!

Take No Prisoners!

Guaranteed, free, fast, high quality traffic anyone? As you can probably see by now, we take our marketing pretty seriously. We’ve become expert in dozens – hundreds – of “free” promotional methods as well as paid ones. Throughout our quest for IM knowledge we’ve tried untold numbers of systems, services and software programs – always looking for “the one!” And we’ve spent thousands of dollars trying to educate ourselves, as you can imagine. You probably have too, by now. So, knowing all this, what we’re about to tell you COULD not only save you thousands more, but also months of work – and – it could help you become profitable online faster than just about any other method we’ve tried so far. And what it is… is a phenomenal program-service hybrid called Axandra IDP Business Promoter. It’s all the best and most serious marketing tools rolled into one. Actually – scratch that. I haven’t seen better tools yet, so a more accurate way to describe it is to simply say that it’s a treasure trove of the best SEO tools on the market. Bar none. Feel free to click on the link to the right of this text and just order the damned thing! 🙂 Really. I wish I knew of this program months ago. It would have saved me countless hours of lost sleep, thousands of bucks – and my sanity. I can just say WOW. It really rocks. Especially when you consider all the pathetic alternatives and all those whacked “guru systems” which just suck you dry and almost NEVER deliver. IBP is not a “guru” system....
Paid Advertising at a Glance

Paid Advertising at a Glance

Paid Advertising In General Look at paid advertising as your cost of doing business. The disadvantage is that it’s a bit more “painful” if you don’t have much money, but the advantage is that it gets results quicker than most other methods. Remember that  once you work out your advertising strategy you should no longer think of how much it will cost – just think of how much it will make! (And a word of cautiion: don’t dream of making $100,000 if you can’t sell for $10 first…!). Once you’ve found the right formula – simply duplicate it. This is by far one of the most successful earning models on the web today. An important thing to know about paid advertising is that if it’s not accompanied by “organic” promotions such as the majority of what is described on this site, it will, typically, only work for as long as you continue paying. But a combination of paid and organic promotional techniques can produce a sustainable and successful business. Don’t go into paid advertising until you’ve got everything else under control. It’s all too easy to misjudge what is required, and the advertising costs can add up very quickly if you’re not careful. It’s essential that you first master at least the basics of SEO and niche research before you go into this one. Paid ads require vigilant testing and tracking, and… at least a little money you can afford to lose. You also need to develop an awareness of your target niche, the overall market and the best timing. But once you do, paid advertising can become probably...
AdWords

AdWords

Google’s advertising network is referred to as Google AdWords. The way the Google Adwords network operates is by allowing advertisers to bid on an endless selection of keywords that they believe may be typed into the Google search engine in search of information. When an advertiser bids on a specific keyword, and they bid a high enough price, the result is that their ad will appear in a special segment of the search engine results pages for that keyword which is located both above the regular search engine results (shaded in yellow) and along the right side of the page as well. If an advertiser does have an ad appear in one of these places, and a search user happens to click on the advertisement, traveling to the advertiser’s optimized landing page, then the advertiser will be charged based on the bid amount. This means that the advertiser is only paying for advertising when the ad is actually being clicked rather than simply for having it displayed. The advertiser does not have to pay for the ad to appear, they only have to pay for the traffic that they actually receive as a result. What is paid for each click is going to be determined by what other advertisers are bidding for the same keyword. It will also depend on the relevancy of the ad within the Google Network based on what the keyword is. This Google AdWords system has become an excellent way for internet marketers, business owners and other advertisers to acquire leads. However, it is important to know that in order for Google AdWords to work...

Media Buys Basics

Media Buys Basics

Media buying, sounds complicated doesn’t it? It needn’t be. Are you ready to learn how to conduct media buying by completing five steps? Step 1 – Identify your target market. Who are you trying to reach? Who is your target market? Create a profile that reflects the consumer you are trying to reach. Questions you may want to ask yourself: What is their age? Are they male or female? What’s their average income? The answers to these questions will be helpful when trying to identify the best venue in which to place media. Step 2 – Research your target market. Once you’ve identified your target market, it’s time to do some market research. You can do your own research, which is called primary research or you can depend on secondary research that’s already been done. There are cost benefits to secondary research. In this step, you want to identify where you will find your target market, as well as other demographics that can assist you in selecting the right media buy. Will you find your target market online? Are they television watchers? What about magazines? What marketing vehicles will work best when it comes to placing advertisements? It’s important to understand the consumer behavior of those that you are targeting. This will help in placing a media buy that is effective and performs by achieving your identified objectives. Research can help you in doing this. Research can also provide you with information on what your competitors are doing and where they are going to reach the audience you are trying to reach. Step 3 – Set your objectives. Don’t...
Traffic Buying

Traffic Buying

A lot of people opt in to various general lists on the web, expressing their interest in particular niches. You’ve done that too, I’m sure, and so have I. Most companies on the web actually TRADE with their lists – and some SELL them outright. There are companies which take this to an unimaginably sophisticated level. They collate member data from multiple sources and build extremely detailed databases where they actually “know everything about you.” This is potentially SCARY stuff. But it’s also the way things are now and we are not able to change it. In fact, were it not for the POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE of this type of database, most of us wouldn’t have a real problem with it. But let’s leave politics out of this for now. As a marketer, if you know that you can save yourself MONTHS of traffic generation, wouldn’t you be interested in BUYING traffic outright? Not advertising for it, not taking any chances – flat out BUYING it. You pay, they come! Targeted and filtered! Well, that’s the theory. In practice it can get a little more tricky than that. But you CAN make this work. In fact you can make this work VERY well indeed. The thing to keep in mind is that NOT ALL TRAFFIC IS EQUAL. 100,000,000 visits from bots might give you a high Alexa rank, but they won’t generate even a single sale! A million people interested in “vacations” might not be interested at all in your “vacation in Nowhere Town, MI” website. When you buy a highly targeted list, you pay for the PRECISION with...
Classified Ads

Classified Ads

The vast majority of classified ads on the web are free – but free isn’t always the best way to go. Most classified services offer premium placements for your ads, at a (usually) small extra charge. If you haven’t yet mastered the art of generating traffic and converting it, classifieds (including paid ones) may be a pretty good way to get stareted. Here are some of the most popular classified sites on the web: http://craigslist.com http://adtrackclassifieds.com http://ablewise.com, http://adlandpro.com http://adpost.com http://classifieds.bmi.net http://www.499ads.com http://www.ablewise.com http://www.Ad4Free.net http://www.adoos.us http://www.beatyourprice.com http://www.buysellcommunity.com http://www.citynews.com http://www.Classified-Ads-4-Free.net http://www.ClassifiedAds.com http://www.classifieds.yahoo.com http://www.classifieds4you.eu http://www.classifiedsforfree.com http://www.classifiedspot.com.au http://www.domesticsale.com http://www.freeadscity.com http://www.FreeAdvertisingForum.com http://www.inetgiant.com http://www.infowaft.com http://www.livedeal.com http://www.ok4free.com http://www.olx.com http://www.oodle.com http://www.ozfreeonline.com http://www.postpin.com http://www.recycler.com http://www.salespider.com http://www.TheWorldForsale.com http://www.usfreeads.com http://www.webclassifieds.us http://www.zamzata.com...
Advertising Networks

Advertising Networks

Aspects of this topic are covered under the Social Networks section, but here the added factor difference is that you can also advertise on “all other” sites which are doing well. You can negotiate rates for displaying banners, text ads and other media, and depending on the popularity of the site you’re dealing with as well as the placement of your ad, you can indeed can some good exposure. Some such sites are organized through advertising networks, so your ad can be displayed on many of those sites – many more than you could find and negotiate with by...
Copywriting

Copywriting

Writing good copy, be it in your ad or on your web page, can be tthe difference between inking or swimming in the world of internet marketing. Here are a few tips on what you should keep in mind when writing your promotional materials. When Copy-writing, keep in mind: Scarcity (or – time-limited) Discuss the process, appeal to logic, appeal to emotions Straight to the point Visualizing Let robots sell your message: one great copy can go out there and sell thousands of times more than direct approach Employ psychology Simple sales messages Pre-answer common objecctions Placing little ads all over the web Build expectation & excitement – without boring them – then sell Letter persuades them to buy A good sales letter can be duplicated endlessly Use REAL endorsements and proof No wild claims – dont set off BS alarms Test and Track Your Campaigns Landing page optimization – make sure you do A/B split tests The customer doesn’t necessarily search for the title phrase. But he often responds better to a “catchy” title. When writing titles for paid products, write a title that leads with the main benefit, even if the benefit doesn’t have a keyword phrase in it! When writing headlines, generally you can use more words. Move the benefit from the subhead; put it in the main headline. Use the popular SEO keyword phrase in the subhead, not necessarily in the main head. Or put the benefit before the colon, and place the product name or title after the...
JV Deals

JV Deals

It is probably not an exaggeration to say that JV’s (joint ventures) are the BEST way to build a large, successful business online. JV’s are a way to leverage other people’s talents and contacts against your product, talent and contacts. Simply put: you scratch their back and they scratch yours. You can compare a JV to having agents working on your behalf – or to having outsourced specialists doing things for your promotional campaign. The better your JV setup, the bigger the scale of your campaign can be. The simplest way to look at a JV deal is to imagine a situation where you have a book you want to sell, while John has a list of contacts that might like your book. Now, the deal you COULD make with John is simple: sell my book to your list, and get a commission for that. And in fact, JV’s do work this way – to an extent. But that’s not the whole story. The reality of today’s internet marketplace is that there are MANY people with product, MANY would-be marketers and only relatively few EXPERT joint venture specialists. As a result, just having a “hot product” is simply not enough to get in the good graces with a top JV guy. Or gal. You will need to offer much more than just your wonderful product. For example an increased commission. Or a special service that you can throw in for free. But all that is still but a part. The MOST IMPORTANT aspect is a relationship you build with your JV partner. It starts with you buying his or...
Ad Swapping

Ad Swapping

Once you’ve built a list of 1,000 subscribers or more, start using ad swaps to grow your list exponentially. This technique is pretty closely related to Traffic Exchanges and List Swaps, so do read up on those as well. This is an extremely valuable technique that can add hundreds of subscribers to your list at a time. Here are some places online where you can find other list owners who are looking to do ad swaps: http://www.imadswaps.com http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-joint-ventures/ Safelists: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/what-is-a-safe-list.html If you have done any type of marketing online chances are you probably heard of safelists, and how they can help you grow any business online. Some people believe that safelist marketing is dead and ineffective, but it has proven time after time to work very well. So what exactly is a “safelist,” and how do you use it? A safelist is an email list you can join for free, and in return for joining you are allowed to email out to the entire list of members that join. Usually most safelists have different levels of memberships you can join at, and each different level will allow you to email more members more often. The best types of safelists to join are ones that are credit-based. Joining a credit-based safe list makes sure members visit your website, because in order for them to mail out they must earn credits. The only way to do this is by clicking on links to your website in the emails that are sent out. Using Safelists To Get Traffic to Your Website Mailing to the list is one thing, but in order to...
List Swaps

List Swaps

The challenge is to already have a worthwhile list – and then to find someone willing to swap with you. This method will not work for a newbie with no list – but once you have a few hundred people, you can easily ask another webmaster (at the same levels as you are) to swap with you and literally double your signups instantly. Don’t expect to be able to trade member lists with the most popular sites. Your list won’t be attractive enough to them, in all likelihood. But if you’re active on the net – as you should be – and you know your niche and others that work within it, it should be no problem for you to establish who is roughly on the same level you are and may want to swap with you. Just write to them or post to them on their forum or blog. An Auto-Responder Swap is essentially an exercise in cross-promotion. I will tell my list about you, and you tell your list about me. Don’t do this too often, but when you do it, make sure you work out the best possible angle that will work well for both parties. You can even create a special personalized page for your counterpart (and he/she should do the same for you) and direct people to that page. Make sure you monitor all activity on that page with Google Analytics. Make sure you put your best foot forward in presenting your offer during such a cross-promotion. You may want to list a bullet-point list of the best things about it, for instance –...
