Best Bum Marketing Method?

by 4 comments
Hi folks,

I'm about to embark on a bum marketing campaign as an experiment to prove to myself that it works.

I understand the principles of keyword research, article writing, Ezinearticles etc. I've been doing that for a while now :-)

What I'm looking for is some advice from experienced "bums" on the best approach to take.

When I'm directing traffic would I be better send it to:

1. A presell page for the product itself.

2. A 5 - 10 page content site on the same topic with affiliate links for the product in the body text.

3. A 2 -3 page "review" style site (Conduit method style).

4. Redirect from the domain directly to the product landing page.

Which of these would the experienced "bums" consider to be the most profitable?

I know building a list is important too btw.

Thanks in advance guys :-)

    It depends on "who" your audience is and what is going on in their head.

    They leave clues by what they type in the keyword phrases.


    A presell page about the product itself would work great for people typing in
    a product name keyword.

    Someone typing in 'best acne treatment for adults' would be perfect for a review page.

    Someone typing in 'homeschooling' should be put on your list.

    Make any sense?

    All the methods you listed are wonderful

    You just have to match the 'tool to the job'.

    A review of 3 Adwords products to a person
    that types in 'Best Home Business Opportunities'
    is like trying to nail a board together with a screwdriver.

    My very best 'Bums' think about the people first
    and then match the tactic.

    Rooting For Ya,

      Hey Travis,

      Long time listener and fan but first time poster :-) I couldn't have asked for an answer from a better "bum" really could I? lol Technically you're King of Bums no?

      Your answer sums it all up really. I was approaching it from the angle of "what's most profitable" instead of looking at the visitor first. Makes perfect sense dude!

      Thanks for the reply - much appreciated!

    I am a big fan of review style websites. It provides an "authoritative" suggestion to potential buyers. Along with my preference of using the review style, I like to keep my landing pages short and simple, while being effective at the same time.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    In this online age, being a copywriter is fast becoming a viable means of earning an income, sometimes even from the comfort of your own home. It is one of the few industries today where further education (usually a tertiary qualification, such as a degree in journalism or marketing) is not the be all and end all of being hired as a copywriter, although it can be handy. More importantly however, is being a capable and creative writer; one who can demonstrate ability and the right attitude to prospective employers. Below are a few basic but helpful tips for any burgeoning copywriters out there.

    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.
