How To MAKE MONEY out of the Banking Crisis

by 1 comments
First off, congratulations! If you're here, you might be ideally positioned to make a lot of money out of the banking crisis...even if you've just started with Internet Marketing.

I think this is a great forum, and I've found some great affiliates and partners here. You tend to find the new ideas here, before other on-line forums about IM. Also, please note, this isn't really my own thinking - I've just brought it together. I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing business strategies, marketing strategists, and entrepreneurs, and I'm really riding on their coat tails.

My experts expect the financial 'bottom' to be either imminent, or January. These guys have an uncanny knack of spotting market turning points - they call them decision points. But the financial bottom precedes the bottom in the real economy by 6 months to a we have at hand an unprecedented opportunity because the impact will drive wholesale changes to people's lives in that period.

So Here's the How-To (and I'll be 'Internet Brief'):

1) Test, test, test and then capitalize

I'm going to be blunt here, but I've got to squeeze it into one page: You can't tell what will work by looking at it - even if you think you can. Sorry to be the bearer of that news, but market responses are too complex.

So the best way to find out what will work for you is to test. Sign-up for a lot of things, and do tests - and obviously, when you find something that works, pursue it with vigour.

Make sure your sample size is big enough to be representative - so if you've got a list of 3000, try a random 300 to see how they respond. It's very important to track response metrics - how else will you know when something is working.

You can do this because your costs of running a test are close to zero (big business doesn't do this, because it costs them millions to run a test).

As early as you can, figure out what your action is worth in this market - for instance, we believe that in the Executive Rockstar launch a reasonably targeted list will yield $1.50 per contact. So if you've got 3000 contacts, well, you do the sum.

2) Match Message to Market

We're not the only ones thinking of making money in this market - at this time, but we are the tiny minority. Most people are worried about hanging-on to what they've got. Now here's the key: People are much more strongly motivated by fear than greed! So it's a sellers market, provided your messages match their needs.

Again, taken from Executive Rockstar, at the moment, we're not really selling to people about getting promoted - we're selling to people about keeping their jobs. We're not so much selling to entreprenuers about growing their business (except right here), we're selling to them about surviving the recession.

3) Offer Quality

This is even more important right now - especially as so much of what is pushed on-line is pure cr@p. (You know I'm not the first to say it!) It's probably because marketing on the internet has been focussed on the marketing process itself, rather than the lifetime customer relationship value.

Buyers may be highly motivated right now, but they have their rip-off radars tuned to full gain! So make sure that what you're getting involved with is a high quality product, from reputable, experienced people. You can tell from the marketing give-aways - you don't need the whole product. But if the marketing content is focussed on manipulation rather than proof, steer clear.

4) Get or Stay Agile

You hear the term 'learning curve' bandied around a lot these days, but few people actually know what it is, and what it really means - it's about how your capabilities grow by doing something - and the more you do it, the more you learn to do it well. So doing things at high scale and with high frequency have their own rewards to make you more and more capable...and successful.

5) Don't expect to become Partners overnight!

Work together first to see how working together feels. Make some money together. Make sure you see eye-to-eye.

I developed the partnering process for one of the big mobile handset manufacturers - they partner with people like Google and Kodak. Partnering is a process, not an introduction, and it's a process of building trust, establishing, gradually, the rules of the relationship.

And the best way to consolidate a partner relationship is a successful project.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject - all responses are welcome!

    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?
