A Newbies Nightmare

by adsassist 63 replies
So I have been looking for help for days now. And for some reason no one wants to help me. I asked about my squeeze page. HERE I never made one. I don't even know how to make the page it self. No help.

I posted HERE asking for help and I get no help. I posted every where asking for help and I get ideas with no facts. Then I become a member for the war room, Started a new thread about an idea I had. As I sit here watching threads get put up and mine is no where in sight. Most of been a real bad idea or some thing to not even get posted (its been all most 24hr).

Im starting to get the feeling this forum is more about the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The war room is great if you all ready know what you are doing. It is not at all the place for newbies. It just has more information for a newbie to get more confused. It is made to get the rich richer. Which gives me that feeling the rich get richer and the poorer get poorer. If your a newbie the best thing you can do is find some one that will do one on one time with you and help you. As for me, this posting in threads and paying for information that I don't understand is not working. Now I am going to find some one that will give me the time I need with them. That is my newbie nightmare. I hope it helps other newbies out there.

        Has there been a SINGLE one that you've
        made any money from?

        Here's why you're probably off the mark...

        You need to understand what good
        marketing is. (Pick up a copy through my
        sig)

        Your offers are not matched to the right
        kind of traffic - and obviously, that's not
        going to generate any form of leads.

        You can't sell shoelaces to people without
        shoes.

        Look, I've been in this industry for years,
        and it's clear as day and night to me...

        You need to understand what is good
        traffic and what conversions really mean!

        And one of the posters made a point. If
        you're juggling yourself with so many
        efforts...

        Are you making any money from ONE?

        If not, just why are you replicating that
        failure? I don't know if you might agree
        with me, but that's one pathway to no
        improvement.

        If you need a headstart... If you need an
        unfair advantage above the rest, then
        go learn more about targeted traffic and
        how to get it.

        Learn more about conversions - and how
        to optimize funnels.

        Everyone who asked in the past ALL had
        the same problems.

          I use webfire for my targeted traffic. I got GREAT leads. I have only targeted back links. Posted and commented only to sites that are in my niche. Even got all the Q&A in the last 24 hours with my keyword in it. Cant get a better lead then that. People asking about the product I have. I don't know any lead better then that

          I actually have good targeted traffic. Around 60 a day on 3 of the sites. I made 1 sale. After that sale I put 40 into adwords with good keywords to that one site. I got over 40 people look at the product and 6 at the order page with 1 sale. People are coming to that site for that product only.

          I have changed things around so many times it unreal. I don't know what to try any more. Other then getting a squeeze page. I need some one to go through my sites and tell me what to do. I don't want an idea. I need proven facts that work.

          3 of my site are full websites. The others are clickbank one page sites. Its the idea I had and tried to post it. I spent some time writing that thread and don't want to do it again for nothing. If you truly want to help me. I can email you the idea. This thread will be in the back in no time.

            Adsassist,

            I love helping newbies get a headstart. If
            you're serious about this, are willing to invest
            (which I presume you are, through all that
            determination) your time and assets...

            Send me a PM.

            I'll give you a little help if I can.

            Winston Tian

    Some time when you need help from others you MUST sound that you really in NEED of help. Asking a favor is different from demanding something.

    Please structure your questions properly so that people will understand what your problem actually is and make it easy for them to give you a specific answer.

    So please ask once again. This time try to write in a simple and straight forward manner with a humble tone and I am sure you will get your answer.

      The biggest nightmare is the lack of paragraphing. You lost me at your first hyperlink. Nonetheless, I clicked through. And below the following quote is my conclusion...

      I second Qamar. What on earth is the focus of your question? As I said, I looked at your other post. But I can't, for all it's worth, figure out what you're trying to ask.

      No adsa... You definitely can. And you'll have to if you want any sort of help.

        Just look at my sites and tell me what I need to do. I have no squeeze page. I have no subscribers, I make no money. If you have a question, ask me. I don't know what you need to know to help me.

          adsassist,

          First of all, you need to lose your victim mentality - it's not doing you any good.

          People are generally happy to help, but one of your previous questions is tagged onto the end of a long thread in the Contests/Challenges section which doesn't get anywhere near the number of views as this forum, so that could be one reason for the lack of response.

          I've looked at the sites in your sig. My initial reaction is that you shouldn't be trying to build MMO sites until you've actually made some money online. The site you put up is like countless other such sites and exudes zero credibility or any feeling of personal input.

          Judging by your other sites, you obviously have an interest in cars. However, you're not likely to see much advertising or affiliate revenue until you build up your visitor base. It's fine to want to start a list, but at the moment all you've done is place opt-in forms on your pages. There's no reason given to subscribe.

          What's in it for your list members? Why should they sign up?

          And when you have a list, are you planning to create a regular newsletter?

          Take a step back and consider what your business is. Decide what products or services you're going to provide to your customers and how you're going to market to them.

          If your idea is to create an authoritative site, maybe consider combining your existing car sites into one. If you want to concentrate on a particular product, focus on building a targeted list - but give your subscribers a compelling reason to sign up. A separate squeeze page could be an advantage in that case as it would give you more space to focus on getting the opt-in.

            Now this is what Im talking about. You have very good points and all are so true. But I don't know how to do those ideas. I dont have a reason for them to subscribe(please help).

            I didn't even know I had MMO sites lol. That was just an idea I had. MMO stands for?

            I don't know what my business is. I started with SBI and didn't really understand when they said to monetize. Found out after the sites where built. Would have never done a niche on cars if I knew what they where talking about. So know I need some one to help me fix this BIG mess.

          What you need to do is read a freakin' book or two, and get educated about this business. Seriously, you have TWO SBI sites that cost you around $500, yet you didn't even know what it meant to monetize a site untils AFTER you had built them? Did you even bother to read the marketing guide that comes SBI? I don't believe you did, because there is no way you could possibly be this clueless about the most basic of things.

          Here's my advice...don't build any new sites, don't run off in any new directions, and don't jump onto any new ideas. Step back, get a cup of your favorite beverage, and spend some time LEARNING about this business. I'd start with the basics. Maybe read that SBI manual. And actually PAY ATTENTION to what you're reading, because I get the feeling you don't do that very well. If you did, you wouldn't have asked for squeeze page help on the product review forum.

          And speaking of squeeze pages, you said you have an aweber account. Have you bothered to read the instructions on how to use aweber? I'm guessing no, because if you had, you wouldn't be so clueless as to how autoresponders work. And speaking of autoresponders, you do know SBI comes with an autoresponder included, right?

            First SBI is 30 a month, don't make it sound like its a big expensive site. Any one can afford it.
            No I didn't sit there and followed it step by step. That is hours and hours of time. SBI is long. I was a newbie. Would you expect any thing less. Yes sbi has its own auto responder. It sucks and I would like all my emails in one place like most people do.
            At this point I have read many many books. Books are good and all but it is not going to show you what to do and what the out come is. I can go read a book about building a cars motor. Does that mean I know how to and can do it. Go read a book on being an astronaut. Your going to be one once your done reading a few books right?

            The Problem is there is no book to fix my problem. There is probably only a few people in the world that made the mistakes I have made in the order I made them.

              Then don't fix the problem.

              Learn from it, and start over.

              Save the articles from your SBI and Sitemoxie services you care about, and drop them. In all honesty, they don't look professional at all, and do nothing to attract visitors.

              Find out what your target audience wants and find a way to deliver it to them.

                I am starting to think you are right. All of the sites are pretty much junk. Could I even sell them? Are they worth any thing?

                So then what would you do to start over. I need some thing that is going to work. Need to make a living. Not get quick cash this way. I need a true guid on making the big bucks. I need to stop spending my time into my websites and put it into a REAL solution.

                I cant believe some of you guys make newbies go through this crap. Make money this way make money that way. Then to find out that is how you make money. By selling newbies crap. Not all of it is crap but a lot of it is. I wish they would only allow proven systems with people that do care. I would rather make money then just take it and know your going to fail. Dang people with to much psychology. Making people believe in you.

                  Well, you say a lot of us make you go through this crap, and tell you to make money this way and that way.

                  But going over your sites, I can't see anything I've ever heard anyone "say" is a way to make money. It doesn't even look like you have implemented any methods to actually make money.

                  You want the true guide to making big bucks?

                  Provide a valuable service.

                  People will pay for what they find valuable. You probably won't see any money for a while, but that's the way this business works.

                  There's no step by step guide on becoming a millionaire. You just start somewhere and provide a valuable service or product to people who are interested. That's how you make money.

                    First I want to say sorry again. Newbies dont piss your help off.

                    So your saying the best way to make 6 figures is to make my own product?
                    I cant make that much selling a product or products? I thought it would be easier to sell a few products then making my own. Oh then I have people sell my product and get 25%.

                      You know we all started where you are at some point in our business. We were once all newbies. For me, I finally had to quit trying to learn everything and just start doing. It was trial and error. I would try something, see that it wouldn't work so I would tweak and make changes and try again. I eventually started to learn what worked and what didn't and basically did it on my own.

                      Well, ideally yes - your own product. It can be an ebook, video or audio guide, a WSO, or a physical product. Your imagination is the limit.

                      But you can also offer a service. Now, this may be SEO services to local businesses, website design, or even simply writing useful posts on your blog. If you can provide useful and unique content that people are genuinely interested in, you'll be in good shape.

                      The key is finding something people are looking for, and giving it to them.

              Gee, it takes a lot of time and effort to get some license that will open the door to clients and steady income. Forget it. I'll flip burgers.

              Gee, it takes a lot of time and effort to figure out this Internet thing. I remember getting a very long SBI manual, probably 8-10 years ago. I printed it out. Read it over and over. Made notes. Start applying what I had digested and learned from multiple readings. I still have it.

              Quit playing the victim card about no one taking time out of their life to help you out.

          So from what I see here adsassist, you have a 'make money online' website that you are trying to build, plus a few adsense sites that you are trying to get adsense income from. I think this is a correct assessment. I am not a wildly successful marketer, but from my many years of experience, I can spot a few problems that you should correct right away.

          This is all my opinion of course, and frankly, more successful marketers may disagree, but do take a look at my suggestions for what its worth.


          I would do the following, if I were you:

          1. Get one well done website that is NOT in the IM niche, and focus 90% of your attention on that website. A good way to do this is to buy one of those niche sites from this section of the WF:

          Complete Web Sites For Sale!

          I am deliberately steering you away from IM niche because it is super competitive and is the worst place to attempt to make income online. Unless you have a great coach with superior knowledge and experience, you are running this race with your hands and feet tied up, if you insist on trying to make money in the 'make money online' niche. I tried it for years and failed because I insisted on being a knucklehead even though I was told to stay away from IM. Anyway, I digress...

          Get someone to write you 7 original articles (or write them yourself, if you are confident enough) and replace the ones that come with the website you just purchased from WF. One of these ready-done website actually cost $25.00. If you cannot install the site or change the articles, you need to find a good guide to learn this stuff or hire someone at odesk.com to help you do it for now. You will not make much gain online without this basic knowledge of uploading ftp files, basic html modification, and setting up auto-responders. Its just a fact.

          Anyway, when you have a good looking site that can convert (ask for people's opinions here on WF), then you can start getting traffic to the site. Here are a few things to consider when you are making these changes:

          (a) Do some basic keyword research to see what is selling and where you can make some sales, based on demand before you decide on a Niche. If you don't have the basic knowledge to research niches, hire someone at fiverr.com to help you do this. Ditto for choosing a domain name. Get help to find a great domain name for your website, and stay away from trade-marked domain names like anything including the word "dish" if you are selling tv to pc software, for example ().

          Once, you have the website ready, and looking good, get traffic to it. Here are a few pointers.

          1. Get a really cool ebook or video created so you can give it away at the site. Let's say you decide to sell (idol lash products at markethealth.com) You will want a great report written with beauty tips for growing great eyelashes. You get the idea. It may cost you $35 - $60., but totally worth it!

          2. Set up an auto-responder at the website to give away the report, and hire someone, (yes, you heard me right), hire someone to write the 10 - 15 auto-responder emails you are going to send out to your prospects. There is a great product called popupdomination at Clickbank BTW. Check it out.

          3. Find a product on the WSO section of this forum that will get you immediate and long term traffic. I do not recommend that you buy 'hits' to your site. They hardly ever work. You need to either build SEO traffic, or learn to get traffic from FB, Linkedin, StumbleUpon, or do PPC traffic at Microsoft Adcenter, 7 Search, or others. I am not recommending Google Adwords unless you find an expert to help you.

          Here is something that is working for me. About 5 months ago I purchased a product here on WF about 7search.com. It was about PPC traffic. I tried it a few times with 'make money websites' and made nothing...zip!!

          I did not give up though. I went back and focused on a non-IM niche..and BAM! I starting making sales. Based on initial sales, I figure I can do 300 - 450% ROI for every $1.00 spent over 3 months with this product on 7search.com.

          Lesson? Don't give up if the first thing you try does not work at your PPC site. Keep refining the process. The best thing about PPC is that the feedback is almost immediate and very targeted!

          But you can also do other things. I find that SEO is ok, but it takes a long time, and you should NOT put all your money, efforts and time into SEO. It could discourage you if Google make some other algorithm change and your site was not set up to ride out those changes!

          Use some SEO but don't forget that the most targeted traffic you can find is PPC traffic. Tread carefully with PPC though.

          One other thing about FB. If you use FB PPC, get a good guide to follow. I actually found a free one on this Forum. Here is the link:

          http://www.warriorforum.com/ad-netwo...deo-guide.html

          As soon as you can break past the $1000/month income barrier on your first site, that is the time that I recommend that you start another website. By then, you will have lots of valuable experience because you would have learned so much with your first web site.

          I do suggest that you keep your IM site that you have now, but just use it to share ideas and thoughts, as well as to run experiments. Later on when you have valuable experience to share, an aged site that has good tips will be a valuable asset.

          I hope this helps.

          My best to you,
          Anthony

            The problem is I don't know if my site is good at all. I need a full evaluation to move forward in improving it. I don't even know what my business is. I had the sites built then learn what monetize meant then through it together. In the hybrid cars site, the alternative energy section was thrown in there after I learned how to monetize. It was never intended to be there.
            That's your problem in a nutshell.

            You didn't have the patience to go through the standard learning curve so you tried to jump in with some sites you don't fully understand and don't have a plan for.

            Since joining two weeks ago you have started multiple threads all focused on these same sites. You've gotten some good information but it's never enough.

            You want "the answer" and it doesn't exist. It's common for people who need to earn money to try to speed up the process. Problem is, whenever you have a suggestion, you have an answer for it or you rationalize what you've done so far.

            If you want a squeeze page - learn to make one. There's tons of help on this forum and free on google to teach you to build a simple squeeze page. What you might find is there needs to be a REASON for people to sign up. You have signup forms on your sites - but why would anyone sign up?

            The content on your sites is not specific but general info in a highly specialized niche. You have a link to "list of hybrid cars" but the link leads to yet another piece of general info about "why hybrid cars are good".

            The first thing you need to do is change your attitude. You are asking the same questions hoping to get an answer you want - and ignoring advice you don't like. You can do that - but some of the people offering advice ARE making money and you might want to consider that.

            You need to master the basics and learn to create a plan for your sites and for your business. It takes some time and patience and trial and error but there's no substitute for knowing how things work.

            Your impatience is hurting you and your expectations are unrealistic. "Needing money" has no effect on whether you can earn money online or not. Choose the best of the three sites and learn to work with it and you might start moving ahead.

          Well, the very first thing I see wrong is the placement of your info capture box. If you want people to opt in to your list, you should always have the box above the fold. If you don't know what that means, ask and I'll be happy to expound. Additionally, keep in mind that the most valuable piece of real estate on your page is the top left corner. This is the very first place the eyes go to when arriving on a page. I'm not just saying this, it has been well documented by Google.

          Second, why would someone want to opt in to your list? You are not giving anyone a reason to give you their name and email address. With all the spam people receive on a daily basis, they need to have a reason to allow you to send stuff to them. You need to think like your visitors. What are they interested in? What could you give them in exchange for their name and email address? If you don't already have something as a giveaway, there are tons of PLR products available for really cheap and sometimes even free. A report or small e-book of some type that would be of interest to your targeted audience would be a good idea. You could even have a couple of affiliate links in it so you could potentially get some sales from giving away your freebie.

          Third, the sites seem to be set up like adsense sites in that, the main focus (at least to me) seems to be to get people to click on Google ads. I'm not saying that's a bad business model, but it's nowhere nearly as lucrative as building a list from your traffic. You seem to be going after car guys, who spend a TON of money on things for their cars. There are also e-books on how to fight traffic tickets, how to buy cars at auctions, etc. These are offers you could send to your list, along with offers from Amazon, Ebay and several other online stores that have affiliate programs.

      Could you explain a little more? To much information in what?

      Want to talk about focus. This is 100% true. I have been working on this IM for 4 weeks now(not all together, been doing it for all most a year). Day and night for 15-18 hours a day. I have feel asleep with the mouse in my hand. I have focus. Now I need some one to tell me what exactly to focus on. Its what ive been asking this whole time.

      I'm sorry. You guys need an apology. I'm getting so frustrated. Especially when I have some targeted traffic and still not sell any thing. Maybe I need to take a day off.

      The question, What do I need to do to my sites to make money? So go through my sites. Is the theme ok? If not what should I exactly do to please my customers? Is the product ok? If not what product would you exactly us? Is the opt-in ok? If not how exactly should I have it? Is the nav ok? Is the footer ok? Is before the fold ok?

      You see my point. I shouldn't have to ask all these questions. Its a given that those questions are being ask. I need help with the entire thing.

        adassist,

        I can feel your frustration oozing out of your pores right here in my office and I understand. However, the first thing you need to do is take a deep breath, hold it, and release.

        Good!

        As mentioned before, there are numerous warriors willing to help, but without the proper information, they simply cannot and it is not a given that they should understand.

        If I told you I failed at creating a beautiful garden and asked for your help, how could you help me if you didn't know if I had broken up the fallow ground or if nothing grew or if the flowers started to grow but died?

        Why did they die? Did I over water or under water them? Were they infested with insects? Did they need full sun but were planted in a shady area or did they need part shade but were planted in full sun?

        Do you see where I'm going with this?

        Specific details are needed when asking for help as there are so many areas involved.

        Hopefully you can go on from here with specific detailed questions and get the help you ask for. Don't forget to ask nicely.

        I wish you much success.

          I have done this the first day I came here. The thread was looked down upon and was pushed back in less then a day. The thread was about the reasons for doing this and the sites I had and needed some major help. It was a long detailed thread. I don't like typing for no reason and wasting my time.

          I can write another one from day one for you to get a better understanding. If you will listen I will write it.

        I understand your frustration. But the truth is -- you do need to ask the questions. No one has the time to go through your page step by step and give you all the answers that they think you might be asking.

        However, if you ask specific things then the people who know about those topics can answer.

        To answer one of your questions; regarding opt-ins. As someone mentioned above, you haven't given a reason to opt-in to your list. You need to offer some sort of incentive such as a guide, ebook, or informative newsletter.

        Another way to improve your rate of answers is to be specific in your headline regarding your question. No one opens all threads. But if they see something that refers to a topic they know about they'll be more apt to open and answer.

        You cant be serious about that statement! Of course you have to ask those questions. You need to be specific about what you want to know. I am not a mind reader, I had no idea what you wanted to know as you were too vague.

    Okay, lets get down to business.

    The one site I do like is elite-custom-cars.com, yet the hyphenated url turns me off a little bit. I would also work on the logo, as it gives gives the site somewhat of a "cheap" feel, which throws your credibility out the window.

    Now, the rest of the sites just don't look professional at all. Not to mention the ads are completely off target. Like ads for solar panels in a car blog? I wouldn't be surprised you're not converting.

    Now, as far as your traffic goes - do you know where it's going? Have you set up Google analytics to see what visitors do once they're on your site? If not, I'd go do it right away. If you can identify where visitors are dropping off you can start preventing it.

    Another thing. What exactly are you offering your customers, and how do you plan on monetizing? Are you targeting customers that are looking to spend money? What can you sell someone that's looking at Subaru Impreza specs? A solar panel, ipad, or coilovers?

    Find out what your customers would be interested in buying, and give it to them. Like I said, I liked elite-custom-cars.com best, but what exactly are you taking about there, automotive paint and car rentals?

    I would say those are two completely different things to combine into the same blog. And it also doesn't make sense that "Elite-Custom-Cars.com" would be about car paint and rentals.

    When I go through your sites I get the impression you're really trying to make money off them - which is great! But that can't be your only focus.

    You need to focus on providing value to your readers.

    Genuinely focus on generating content that people really want to read! I must be honest with you, after briefly going through your pages, nothing about any of them really sparks my interest or makes me want to explore more. Website design and layout influence a lot as well, so a redesign may not hurt on some sites.

    And chances are other visitors feel that same way. You might be great at generating traffic, but now you must turn your attention to providing content to those readers that they're genuinely interested in.

    Personally I'd focus on the one you made yourself in wordpress. You might need to register another url once you figure out what your target is going to be, but that's okay - they can be had for $1.99 every so often on GoDaddy. And you already have a great premium theme and framework in the Lifestyle on Genesis.

    Just spend some time thinking about who you want to target, what they would be interested in, and how you can deliver it.

    Hey there!

    It sounds like you're going through the frustration we all did when we first started out. Internet Marketing is simple. It's made up of

    1) A squeeze page
    2) Generating traffic
    3) Converting traffic to buyers
    4) Collecting payments
    5) Repeating the process

    The cardinal mistake that newbies make is going shallow and wide vs narrow and deep. They try to do too many things at once and get overwhelmed. Focus on one thing to start out with and maintain sustained focus and energy on it to get the snow ball effect. For example, I started out focusing on list building. I am now getting 100-200 email signups per day within 3-4 months of focusing on just that. I didn't focus on any other stuff. Just list building.

    So perhaps a good strategy would be to focus on a topic your passionate about and focus on list building in that niche or traffic generation in that niche or some other aspect of IM that resonates for you? Personally, I dont focus a whole lot on SEO because its so time consuming and google changes their algorithm often. In addition, search engine traffic is *browser* traffic, not *buyer* traffic like that from ebay or amazon. I hope this helps.

        Oops! typo in my message above. The templates on aweber are email sign up pages, not sales pages. I drive traffic to my email signup pages so they are effectively my squeeze pages.

    hi adsassist,

    I have visited your sites, one thing I notice you do have opt-in form but nothing to offer.. to build list, you will need email address, so in other to get their email address you must offer something in exchange.. e-book on "How to choose the best hybrid car" maybe, or maybe mp3 audio format on "How To Get A Low Cost Car Rental"....These we call lead magnet..

    Choice is yours after all..

    Think like this bro, email if something personal, nobody will give theirs for free.. You must earn them..

    The system basically work like this :

    Lead magnet > squeeze page > your list

    just my humble opinions..

    Hey man are you talking about the blogs in your sig?

    I'm not going to comment on anything other than your blogs/sites as that would be a waste of time.

    You want help right?

    Ok here it goes.

    This is a crucial mistake I see a lot of newbies make, but you do NOT have a solid call to action ANYWHERE on ANY of your sites.

    You have a little email box with "name" and "email" and I will be 100% honest, after reading quickly through your content, I had NO IDEA WHY I would want to submit my information.

    You know why?

    Because I DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE OFFERING!

    Here is some more stuff, your articles are boring. They are NOT written well. I told myself "I'm forcing myself to read these sites" and it was painful. I'm NOT trying to insult you, but you have an almost "lazy" style of writing. Such as begining your next sentence with the same 3 words you began your last sentence with.

    That was one problem I saw. Aside from that, the text just does NOT grab me.
    After that like I said, I have NO IDEA what your site is for other for grabbing some quick info about cars.

    WHERE are you monetizing your sites? Or how? Like I said I see a form, but I have NO IDEA why you would want me to email you.

    Here is the worst part. Compare your blogs to Chris Gunthrie, who is a really talented marketer apparently.

    But look how SIMPLE his blogs are to read, then look HOW DIFFICULT yours are to read.

    You can NOT have a block of text because NOONE will want to read any of what you have on your sites. First mistake I see you making is lets use this one for an example:

    Elite Hybrid Cars. Saving Energy and The World. Cheap Hybrid Cars

    Ok now tell me first how I share that page with a friend? Look at the name of the url, thats impossible for anyone to remember.

    Second, I NEED to reiterate this fact, the blocks of text are SUICIDE my friend, get rid of them.

    A good writer would be more likely to use just 3-4 sentences, easy to read, that SCREAM VALUE to get people to click on the links.

    You absolutely should NOT be putting big blocks of text you just need to understand what you're doing to readers minds, that is NOT APPEALING FOR PEOPLE TO READ! They will NOT want to read it.

    Plus this is your lead in type of info to get people to click further into your site:

    Hybrid cars are new. Hybrid cars save energy. Making solar panels will save you energy/get your home off the grid.

    COME ON BRO. Don't you understand what type of ADD you are dealing with? 90% of the people who come to your site do NOT have the time for stuff like that.

    You need to frame things in a NEW and UNIQUE way and provide original bits of information to get people to click futher.

    I ALREADY KNOW SOLAR PANELS SAVE MONEY.
    I ALREADY KNOW HYBRID CARS SAVE MONEY.

    Write something I DO NOT KNOW about hybrid cars.

    The real issue here is you just don't understand basic human psychology. People are lazy. Most of them read like children do. They are addicted to stimulating, unique, original information. What you're writing is none of that unfortunately.

    What else can I say?

    You wanted a review and those are my honest beliefs.

    Here is the final note. You picked a niche that tons of people are already doing A LOT BETTER. Find sites that are already ranking for your keywords, go look what they're doing. You'll see a big difference imo.

    With that g/luck, you really need to work on your writing, copy design, how you bait people to do things, call to action, sub headings that scream value, WHITE SPACE so you don't trigger ADD which all your sites do heavily.

    Are you even using great copywriters for reference?
    I mean really just study what they do, you should be able to find 1000s of mistakes.

    good luck! - Red


    With Alternative Energy News you will find every thing you need to help save energy. Hybrid cars are not the only source for new energy. Making your own solar panels and get your house off the electric grid. Very cheap to make this happen. (really? You NEED a seperate section JUST DEDICATED to nothing other than making solar panels - thats something that men would be interested in! divide your sections down into 1 topic per section) Making enough electricity through the earths magnetic field to power your smart phone. Watch a video making over 2 volts with one little peace of wire. There are many home made energy sources and I have narrowed it done to what works. Saving energy was my number 1 goal and come look at what I found.........Continue


    just WAYY TOO OVERWHELMING /\

    Like I said too much info, make it short and sweet, engaging and powerful. I would have focused more on the video myself. Since its pretty easy to get someone to watch a video, I'd just make that 1 section for the VIDEO.

    You can make the section something like:

    Ever wondered how to make your own solar panels and save money? You're not alone!
    Check out this incredible video that shows you how to make your own solar panels at home without breaking the bank! (then link video)

    It should be shorter spurts of more focused categories, and should read with a bit more enthusiasm imo. Focus on the VALUE.

    take care

      hey adsassit,

      right i read through all your threads, man o man do you sound like me or what when i first started out in this business lol.

      I could feel your frustration all the guys here were trying to help you, but you were blocking them off and just taking your frustration out on them, man o man that happened to me aswell, i even got to the stage of crying, yelling, and shouting at people around me.

      ok enough of the negativity, let me give you some advice my friend.

      take a step back, and personally i say scrap those sites and start all over again, i think you need some help in the state of your mind, it helped myself in a massive way. Read books on the mindset for success. I did that and it made a world of a difference to me.

      Then once your mind is ready, then you can start from scratch with IM. Firstly learn about list building your number 1 asset in this business. Also look into affiliate marketing, stick with these 2 for now and thats it.

      Whatever you do understand this much there is no "quick cash" no "fast cash" this is a business and you have to treat it like a business and look at it as a business, so get your business head on and in order.

      Take a break even if its a long break just take it i did and it made a world of a difference for me.

        Can I get an amen?

        For some reason it sounds like you use technique A, B, C, and D for your business but I'm not hearing any kind of strategy or system. Dude, take it from the ex-most frustrated IM guy on the planet: nothing will get you anywhere if you're not consistent with it.

        Any business is all about the sales funnel, a way of getting people in the door (traffic generation), making them buy (conversion optimization), and if they don't buy right away... getting their contact info (lead generation).

        Traffic generation => lead generation => conversion optimization

        No matter what business you're in, it's the business structure. You need to find the elements that work well together for each of the three business structure steps and you'll have a business model.

        For example: I'll use SEO to get traffic, email marketing to do leads, and sales letters + Google Website Optimizer to do conversion AND conversion optimization. That's a business model.

        Then, and only then, is it time to start talking about techniques... what kind of SEo stuff to do, email stuff to do, etc.

        See where I'm going with this? Work on traffic generation until you have enough leads to do reliable conversion testing. And, when working on traffic generation, do one traffic source until it works for you.

        Screw everyone with their billions of traffic sources. Screw paying attention to testing different sales letters if you get, like, 10 visitors a month. Forget about everything but the current step of the system you're in: traffic, leads or sales.

        I guess I'm just trying to say: focus or fail + first plan, then execute. If you're talking about techniques and products then you're executing, but based on what plan? Getting rich quick is not a plan btw, my man, but a dream. You need to make it come true and, honestly?

        Another way to look at it: you plan to fail if you fail to plan. You must know which battle you're fighting before you can win the war.

    Again sorry for my frustrations leaking out.

    birdi That is exactly what I'm going through right know.

    What I need is to start over. Do it right the first time. I think the problem is Im not comprehending on what your telling me. I need some one to tell it to me in my words. And most of all, I need some one to show me. I will clear all my accounts but I need some one to guide me.

    I made a thread before on having a thread for building a website from scratch. And it would be my website and 10% of there earning would go to WF for a year. Think of that. All the master minds guiding a newbie on building a website. Then the more the site makes the more gos to the WF. Make it 25% ,40%. That would be crucial information for a newbie to have and would be a great selling point for a newbie to join. Then some one could make there own product and sell it as a full prof system on starting IM.

    Hi Op,

    Well if site building is your choice (and it's a pretty solid choice), you need to have these bases covered:

    - Solid keyword research ( I would get at least 150 longtail keywords to work from that are related to your main site keyword)
    - Simple but nice site structure
    - Add content to your site consistently (target 3-5 pieces of 'info' content, minimum 600 words each for every review or product piece of content you post). Look to add pages or posts 3x/week at a min and work up to 1x daily.
    - For every piece of content you add to your site, have it targeted at a low comp longtail KW - even if the KW only gets 100 searches per month. You are going for volume. 100 pages of content will bring in traffic even without SEO
    - IF you don't want or can't write all that content, get or use curation
    - With the content you post, add an auto syndication plug-in or feature so that you automatically get social backlinks for every piece of content
    - Build up to 50 pages of content and then reassess. If traffic is there but no conversions, look at what you are promoting and how it is presented and tweak/learn new methods test. If no traffic than either give up (some sites are basically duds) or add more targeted content.
    - All the while have a freebie giveaway opt-in for your visitors so you build a list based on your site.
    - Repurpose all of the content you added to your sites buy turning it into videos, podcasts, ebooks, slideshows, etc., and then distribute it to the respective hosting sites for such mediums. You'll get traffic and backlinks from this.

    Seriously, this is actually quite a bit of work and knowledge to be able to do. Have patience and stay focused. Learn, Learn, Learn. Test Test Test.

      Well, that sounds good, but whatever you do or find will be work, period. IM is work and it's actually harder than a regular job until you are knowledgeable and successful.

      The basic idea is to take action and stay focused and if you fail, get up and try again. Continue to learn and take action and you WILL succeed - even if it's only $10 a week. That is success. Build on that and repeat it. Then scale.

      It's a process.

      My two recommendations are always authority sites and list building email marketing. But nothing happens overnight. The overnight thing is a dream that sells. Overnight only happens for those that already know what they are doing and can thus generate success and cash quickly. But even with them, it's still a matter of testing and refining.

      I already gave a suggestion for authority sites on on the WF. My recommendation for email marketing would be Jamison Palmer. He's a master and a very cool guy. Dude brings in 6 figures monthly and still answers emails and helps regular people succeed.

      Choose something. Learn it. Stay with it. Fail. Stay with it. Succeed. Stay with it. Test. Fail. Succeed. Scale.

      Even those that say they will take you by the hand will not - at least not completely. YOU need to act and take responsibility and continue to do so. Yes, it's a risk and it costs money and takes time, but that's what it is.

      That sounds great, it really does.

      The only problem is that it doesn't exist.

      Any system you try to tackle has the possibility of being screwed up. There's no holy grail we're hiding, nor is there a super secret way to make money that newbies don't know about.

      I don't want to be mean, but you're starting to give the impression that you have no intention of doing any of the work yourself while we spoon feed you everything.

      I know you must be frustrated - and believe me, I've been frustrated too. But if you're going to let a few failures stop you from trying, this probably isn't the best industry for you.

      All the information necessary to making money, be it online or offline, is out there - and many of it can be found free of charge. If you read through this thread you'll find TONS of extremely valuable information. Just open yourself to receiving it.

      Stop saying you can't do this and you can't do that, or that you're an idiot and can't understand anything.

      You CAN!


      You can do anything you set your mind to. And if you fail again? Learn from it! Failing is great, because you will inevitably learn from the experience, and make better decisions in the future because of it.

      What should you do now? Learn. Learn as much as you can about the subject. If you subscribe to a training course, dissect everything about it until you understand it completely, and understand how and why it works. If you have any questions we'll be here to help you out.

      But it's important that you gain an understanding of the system you're trying to implement, and not just have someone do it for you.

      Do you know how many times Thomas Edison failed before he finally succeeded?

        Any system you try to tackle has the possibility of being screwed up. There's no holy grail we're hiding, nor is there a super secret way to make money that newbies don't know about.

        I don't want to be mean, but you're starting to give the impression that you have no intention of doing any of the work yourself while we spoon feed you everything.

        I know you must be frustrated - and believe me, I've been frustrated too. But if you're going to let a few failures stop you from trying, this probably isn't the best industry for you.

        All the information necessary to making money, be it online or offline, is out there - and many of it can be found free of charge. If you read through this thread you'll find TONS of extremely valuable information. Just open yourself to receiving it.

        Stop saying you can't do this and you can't do that, or that you're an idiot and can't understand anything.

        You CAN!


        You can do anything you set your mind to. And if you fail again? Learn from it! Failing is great, because you will inevitably learn from the experience, and make better decisions in the future because of it.

        What should you do now? Learn. Learn as much as you can about the subject. If you subscribe to a training course, dissect everything about it until you understand it completely, and understand how and why it works. If you have any questions we'll be here to help you out.

        But it's important that you gain an understanding of the system you're trying to implement, and not just have someone do it for you.

        Do you know how many times Thomas Edison failed before he finally succeeded?
        Im really not looking for some one to do it for me. Like I said I spend hours reading, tweaking and trying to find a system that works. I don't want a free website. I want to know how it works from start to finish. The right niche, keywords, products, articles. I want to see this happen. Some one to show me. I would give up all my accounts just to have that kind of system. One on one detailed instructions on what to do. Where I shouldn't have many questions at all.

        The system you showed does look good.

    I think your in a position that can cost you a lot of money. From the sounds you want to make
    money now, you want to find a money making system now... well there's millions of systems like that on the internet, and most of the systems work, but you need to take the time to understand how online marketing works first. Your going to have to slow down and learn the business. Reading is not enough you have to understand, how to apply what you read.

    I posted HERE asking for help and I get no help. I posted every where asking for help and I get ideas with no facts. Then I become a member for the war room, Started a new thread about an idea I had. As I sit here watching threads get put up and mine is no where in sight. Most of been a real bad idea or some thing to not even get posted (its been all most 24hr).

    Im starting to get the feeling this forum is more about the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The war room is great if you all ready know what you are doing. It is not at all the place for newbies. It just has more information for a newbie to get more confused. It is made to get the rich richer. Which gives me that feeling the rich get richer and the poorer get poorer. If your a newbie the best thing you can do is find some one that will do one on one time with you and help you. As for me, this posting in threads and paying for information that I don't understand is not working. Now I am going to find some one that will give me the time I need with them. That is my newbie nightmare. I hope it helps other newbies out there.
    Try posting in the right section and you might get more response. Internet Marketing Product Reviews & Ratings is not for questions about your sales page.

    The War Room does not approve general question type of threads. That's not what the War Room is for.

    As for finding someone who is willing to spend "all the time that you need", good luck with that, unless you plan on paying them for their time.

    There's a ton of good information on this forum. Start digging if you want to learn.

    Sounds like you have a case of Information Overload. Try to pick one strategy and stick with it. Be clear and concise when you are asking questions and seeking advice. I would suggest trying to hire a mentor if you feel you need step-by-step guidance. Try not to get discouraged. Best of luck to you!

    adsassist, I am also newbie, but I think joining Warrior Forum is the best decision of my life. I got help from fellow warriors whenever I faced problem. My request is not depend fully on someone while learning any new thing. And also make proper decision before investing anywhere. Think about ROR, Others experience, Time condition etc.

    Be patient and be happy, people here are helping.

    Actually there're plenty of answers already on the internet to most of the questions we have, so just do a little bit more searches when people are not "yet" answering.

    Just wanted to thank you all for your help.

    birdi you are the man. Signed up for what you suggested, ChrisFarrellMembership.com.
    It is exactly what I was looking for. I 100% understand what all of you are saying now.
    I feel stupid as all of you where telling me this the whole time. I think Mr Farrell said it and showed it in a way that I understand. Or he said it in the most simplest terms.
    Im staying with this system and moving all my accounts to his hosting. Free hosting for as many domains I want. Cant beat that.

    For all you newbies out there, At least watch Mr Farrell's videos.

    Thanks again to all of you and sorry for the frustration melt down.

    I'm glad you found a system that you understand, and works for you.

    IM is not the easiest industry to succeed in, but you're resilient so you should do pretty well if you continue to push on.

    All the best to you!

    If you really want to get rid of the the information overload that you're having right now, then you have to go step by step.
    Find an honest and authentic mentor and follow him. Don't start too many things at the same time, just concentrate on one thing at a time so you don't get confused.

    I highly recommend Eric Hulmlound, he's the most honest and authentic person I've ever knew. He will teach you everything Step-by-step in a very professional and honest way for FREE.
    Check out his website: ericstips.com

    I can feel for you too because I've been in WF and asking questions but no one answers. You know what I do? I look for help somewhere else. I searched on Google. I mailed other webmasters to get answer. Or I tested and tweaked the questioned object myself just to see what happens. Some of my sites bomb : some makes only trickle of money, one never sees the light of the day, and some becomes my beloved source of income. But I learn something from all of them.

    You can buy all the IM trainings in the world and "learn" every how-tos you can, but they just provide you nothing but the map. It's YOU who have to walk the path of the map or create your own map.

    Why did you bump this old thread? The OP wanted people to help him without providing ANYTHING to the forum himself... then had enough gull to actually complain that no one helped him. Thus... he's banned. This is a funny story. I hope others gain some understanding on how NOT to act at least.
