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.

    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.

      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.

    Yes, the questions are not specific enough. It's pretty hard to help when questions are not specific to needs/wants...

      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.

    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.

      p.s. if you want to see a high converting squeeze page, you can click on the link to my signature. The email signup page there gets 100-200 email signups from several thousand visitors per day. You can copy that. Also, aweber and other autoresponder companies have templates of squeezpages and sales letter built into their system. So if you have trouble uploading html pages to your website, these autoresponder services provie one click services to upload teh page for you. Aweber has good service so they will be happy to help you upload their templates. Take care.

    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.
