Confessions of a scaredy cat CB seller/affiliate

by 8 comments
Hi All,

I could list the ten's of things that have kept me from becoming a CB seller or affiliate, but, I won't introduce negative vibes right now to the forum. I'll save that for when I'm feeling really mean and nasty .

For years, I've had a CB account with a $250 product limit. I'll tell you now I will probably never sell anything on CB for $250 until I become at least a mildly successful affiliate of several products.

I'm going to give it a shot, (The post on weekly payouts got me)

I guess the only reason I'm posting this is to help me to commit to a CB challenge to my self.

I really don't know what to ask, however, any encouragement or even warnings would be greatly appreciated.

George Wright

      George (which is my fathers name) that is an excellent signature quote.
      Most people do not realize that the only thing that is holding them back is only themselves. Everyone seems to be afraid of failing, but never realizing that it is the failing that puts makes them successful.

    I've heard of review sites doing really well... That's the route I'm going to try when I quit screwing around with everything else.

      Hi George,

      I'm in awe of your avatar heh. Placing "Click Here" has an effect on IMers XD
      You joined since 2002 and I'm only just a few months old as an IMer so you should definitely be able to make some good profit from CB after putting all your information down into a good product to sell on CB.

      I heard Andy Henry say this before that we sometimes discredit ourselves too much - everyone of us has something to offer.

      All the best, George!

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
