All-In-One Threads:

All-In-One threads is something I'm starting here where we as a group try to list damn near everything known about the subject of the thread. When you see an All-In-One thread feel free to speak up. It can be a 'secret', just a technique you happen to use or even something you haven't used, just heard about - whatever. Feel free to join in.

Please do not use the term All-In-One anywhere on this board. It will be saved for these threads specifically so at some point all one will have to do is search for the term "All-In-One" and all these threads will be easily found. At some point these will become some of the most sought after threads on the forum so it might be a good idea to participate if you have something to say people are going to really like.

If you have a great idea for an All-In-One thread please send me a PM and let me know about it.

      My favourite marketing tool is Video - In particular on youtube. There are many forms this can take

      • Live to camera
      • Powerpoint
      • show me how camtasia
      • animoto
      • documentary
      • how to

      I find videos rank higher then articles with the same keywords. You can post your url in the description as well as watermarking them in vision.

      It is about the only way I can have some of my content on a world top 10 ranked website.

        1) Search and select unique niches from clickbank.

        2) Go to Google keyword tool and search selected unique niches.

        3) Select long tail keywords relevant to those niches which are specific and less competitive.

        4) Advertising in developed countries like US, UK, Canada, France and Australia.

        5) Rinse and Repeat.

        Good Luck.

    Hmm I suppose I should say membership sites as they have been very good to me.

    I'm about to try Sid Hale's RAP script to market some of my stuff, I'm hoping to go for the viral effect which will in effect help me to rebuild my list.

    Looking forward to trying it out

        I prefer a content-rich website based on carefully selected keywords that feed visitors into an optin system. Once on a list, sales are made through email marketing.

        The system is designed for free traffic using on-page SEO and extensive backlinking. However, it is also suitable for paid traffic which promotes the optin page.

          Providing technical services to other Internet Marketer's membership sites (forums) is my personal favorite. Everything from managing their servers, forums, software applications, and support desks keeps my mind and technical skills sharp. Plus the occasional $$$ bonus and a mailing to their lists provides a perk or two.

          A website designer at heart I am, so the WSOs I participate in are not only profitable, enjoyable, and I like meeting new people. Helping people learn what I do is enjoyable.

          I really like what I do. I think that makes you or breaks you in this business.

    I'm a newbie, so I haven't learned much yet, but my favorite right now is a very simple model from Danny Molano's free ebook:

    -keyword research to find best "buying" keywords (in a desperate niche) with searches of 3000+ per month and less than 400,000 quoted results. Also consider other factors from Market Samurai regarding SEO and ability to rank for keyword.

    -Write keyword optimized article for each keyword and submit to EZA (or other directory).

    -After article is published, use Peter Drew's Brute Force SEO software to put up to 70 PR 5-9 backlinks on each article.

    -Use Angela's backlink package to place another 30 backlinks manually to each article.

    -With 100 high PR backlinks, article has a very good chance to rank high in Google and stay there for a while.

    -Rinse and repeat this process until you reach your desired income level.

    I know there are much more sophisticated and better models out there, but I'm not very tech savvy, so this model is working best for me right now.

      3. Build a content resource
      4. Promote the info product to your audience
      5. Offer giveaway rights to all readers
      6. Throw in a bonus which requires an opt-in
      7. Grow your list
      8. Sell that list more related products (your own, or affiliate)
      9. Set up an affiliate program
      10. Rinse and repeat in another niche

      I know there are much more sophisticated and better models out there, but I'm not very tech savvy, so this model is working best for me right now.
      I'm glad my methods are working out for you.

      Here's my favourite marketing model:

      1. Pick a highly competitve niche, ideally one of the most competitive niches. Those also happen to be the niches with most demand and therefore with the most monetary potential.

      Within the following thread you will learn how to pull this off: http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-ppc-seo-discussion-forum/56177-keyword-research-implementation-101-a.html

      2a. Rank top 3 of Google for the most competitive keyword phrases within your chosen niche. For example: Real Estate, Cheap Viagra, Business Consulting etc...

      PPC those keywords all the way until you reach the top positions in the search engines organically, then drop PPC.

      That way you will be receiving hundreds of thousands of unique targeted visitors to your site(s) every month.

      2b. Create an autoresponder series full of free content for that niche.

      Space them out by 3-7 days and pitch affiliate offers within some of them.

      Set up an opt-in form within the page you are ranking with. Place a powerful call to action and a strong reason as to why they should be joining your list. Ideally a freebie of some sort.

      That way, even with a low opt-in conversion rate (say 5%), you will be getting at least thousands of opt-ins per month.

      3. Now that the whole thing is practically running on autopilot, do some research and create an information product for that same niche, or get one ghostwritten.

      An e-book is basically a glorified long article. But you have to make sure it's good or you won't be able to upsell.

      3b. Create an upsell of 10x (or more) the price of your information product. It could be a video series, coaching, training etc...

      3c. Adapt your autoresponder series, remove all affiliate promotions and replace them with your new low ticket product.

      Proceed to install another autoresponder for those who purchase your low end information product, and pitch the upsell to them only.

      Call that one your VIP list or something, and make sure they confirm subscription.

      4. Grab the RAP script and set up an affiliate program, make sure that your affiliates will benefit from both the low ticket item and the upsell high ticket item.

      5. Rinse and repeat in another niche. Outsource the boring parts as you grow.

      That should get you going.

      Best of luck,

      Dan Molano

      P.S: If you don't have the know how to rank for the most competitive keywords within a niche, use articles and aim for medium competition keywords.

      Just make sure that they are keyword optimized and backlink to them with anchor text for their respective keywords.

      The only catch is that instead of just ranking for 1 term, you will have to rank for about 100.

      P.P.S: Other traffic generation methods that can match the volumes of the most competitve SEO, are PPC and media buys.

      But both require a significant investment and they will dramatically lower your ROI (due to that investment). Besides, media buys only work for mass appeal products.

    Media buying to drive traffic to high paying and/or high converting affiliate/CPA offers.

    You need serious up front investment and it isn't for the faint of heart but it really is like printing your own money.

    For me, it's the ultimate online passive income system. I literally sign a check and the media planners, designers and developers do all of the work.

    In the very near future I'll no longer own any traditional advertising or marketing businesses because I can make (literally!) three or four times more clear profit from affiliate commissions via, for example, an insurance company's affiliate programs than from having that same company as a full service advertising client.

      Is there a course or something that shows how you do that?

    Current model for me is afilliate marketing. But - have 1 of my own clickbank products that has shown me that the product creator model is way way better. Thats my long term plan.

    My method is to drive tarffic with keyword optimized blogging and give away something free to get email blog subscription sign ups.

    This is my best tip - I ONLY use the feedburner email subsription option so i dont need any kind of aweber account. 99 percent of my blog subscribers are via email.In reality almost all everyday internet users have no idea what rss is.

    My favorite model of marketing right now is to give away a valuable product attached with a "one time offer" that has an affiliate program attached. This is the butterfly marketing model created by Mike Filsaime that works extremely well.

    There are scripts on the market which do the same thing as Mike's butterfly marketing script but at a fraction of the price. You can jump start your viral campaign with a script like Twitter Fuel which spreads your message on Twitter. Very powerful!

    Relationship marketing.

    That's about it for me. If I can get to know and serve my customers better and make even an iota of a difference, I am really happy.

    You may not be able to satisfy everyone, but you'll definitely know people who love you. And of course buy from you.

    The power that lies in IM*leverage... It lies in knowing your folks better than others. Knowing their needs and wants. Serving them accordingly. IM, IMO is a lead generation business. More you know.. Better off you are.,.

      My favorite marketing model, for years now, has been something I call
      CPAM...(Coordinated Promotional Advertising Model)

      It's complex as all hell and quite honestly, not for somebody who doesn't
      have a lot of time on their hands. But once it's reached its maximum
      efficiency, for whatever niche you're in, it pretty much runs on autopilot.

      The main hub of the whole process is articles...lots of them. It took me
      years to get thousands online writing them all myself. If you've got the
      money and can find a good writer, outsource.

      But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

      After getting the articles online, mostly through directories and blogs,
      the next step is your content sites.

      These are also blogs but mostly with reviews of products. A good
      portion of the articles will point to these sites.

      Then there are the squeeze pages to build an opt in list. I have quite
      a few different lists going in the IM niche all taking a different slant. Many
      articles also point to these squeeze pages.

      Then there are the videos. I have about 50 of these out there, maybe
      more. These videos also have links...some to the articles, some to the
      blogs, and some to the squeeze pages.

      Then there is my direct advertising which, for the IM niche, I do mostly
      through credit based safelists and FFA sites. Used correctly, these can
      work very well. The direct ads have links going to:

      articles
      blogs
      videos
      squeeze pages
      sales pages

      I mix it up. This way, what may not attract one person will attract another
      and what one person won't respond to, he may respond to something
      else.

      Then there are the forums I participate in. The ones that allow signature
      links, I have these links point to various pages as well.

      Then, if you go to each individual content site, you will find links on
      those sites pointing to other pieces in the chain. So a blog might have a
      link to a video or an article. Squeeze pages and sales pages are the only
      things I have online that don't point to other sources.

      However, some sales pages I have will have a link to another product
      as an upsell.

      For example, I have one product that is actually part of a larger product
      and will make that clear on the sales page with a link. That way, if the
      person is interested in the cheaper product, maybe they might be
      interested in the upsell.

      After thousands of articles and dozens of blogs and videos and consistent
      daily promotion through safelists and FFAs, ultimately what happens is
      you have content all over the place and the traffic continues to come in
      to your various pages with very little effort each day.

      Each page in the system MUST perform at least ONE function.

      A blog review should at LEAST have a link to the sales page, but it could
      also have a link to a video that goes into more depth on the product.

      Depending on how many links an article directory will let you have, you
      can have one link to your blog and another link to the sales page for
      people who already know they want the product.

      For example, a resource box for duel function would look something like
      this.

      "Sick and tired of spinning your wheels online trying to make a buck?
      Visit my blog at <URL> and read my review of <product> or just go
      directly to their site at <URL> and start generating a full time income
      TODAY!"

      Something like that. This way, you give the prospect a choice.

      As I said, it takes a long time to generate such a coordinated system
      because it requires a lot of content to keep things going IF you are in
      a very competitive niche, which IM is.

      In some niches, one article, one blog and one video will do the trick. But
      the more content you have, the better...as long as it's QUALITY content.

      If you just throw junk at the wall to see what sticks, you might make
      some Adsense money, if for no other reason than the prospect can't wait
      to get off your site, but you'll never make any real sales.

      Keeping track of all this and getting it done is the hard part.

      What I did, when I worked a full day, was make a schedule for the week.

      It would look something like this.

      Monday - Write 3 articles, make one video.
      Tuesday - Write 3 articles, put up a blog entry.
      Wednesday - Write 3 articles, visit all my forums.
      Thursday - Make one video, put up a blog entry.
      Friday - Visit all my forums, put up blog entry.
      Saturday - Write 3 articles, make one video, visit all my forums.
      Sunday - Free for all (whatever I felt like doing)

      Sunday would be my "day off".

      Then, what I'd do is this. After doing each task, I'd log it into an Excel
      spreadsheet so I knew what I had done up to that point in time.

      Of course on each of those days, I'd do my direct advertising.

      The best part of this system, for those who are hurting for cash, is it's
      virtually free. The only cost is the FFA hosting and of course whatever
      you spend on hosting and domains. And yes, since I use Camtasia to
      make my videos, that's a cost to...but it's a one time cost.

      And of course, people pick up your articles and ask to use your videos.

      Add some blog commenting to this and it's a killer strategy.

      It gets your name out there...and sometimes, that's half the battle.

      Anyway, that's my contribution to this thread. It may not be for everybody
      but for some people with no money and a lot of time to kill, it works very
      well.

      Hope it helps.

      ** EDIT **

      Of course you might want to add to this mix the following:

      Social Bookmarking (Digg, etc.)
      Social Networking (Twitter, etc.)

      Since twittering, my blog traffic has increased by 400%.

      Just something else to consider.

    My favourite way to market my products is to not start the product creation product until I already know where, when and how to offer it to the intended market.

    This means there really is no selling involved, you just need to let your market know the product is available and where to get it.

    Unlike most marketing models, it also means you already know where your market are and how to reach them (that's a fundamental part of the pre-product creation process)

      1. Market small how-to guides
      2. Build list of customers
      3. Sell bigger info products

      The small guides let you get a foothold in the niche, and then - when your customers know what you can offer them - it's easier to sell them bigger back-end products.

    Here's my usual plan of attack:

    Article Marketing
    I publish to the main hubs, then I push links to those pages to grab more market share via Google.

    Video Marketing
    I publish my video's to the main hubs, then push links to them so they start ranking for competitive keywords

    Media Buying
    Once I have my ads created ( Custom Banner Design | Right Banners! is great ) I go to the major media networks and start buying ad space. You can find cheap ad space that targets your market specifically, especially if you go direct with that publisher. I just recently got hundreds of thousands of impressions for only $300, which couldn't target my market any more.

    PPC - Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Myspace
    Grab all my keywords I want to target for Google and Yahoo! and drive traffic to landing page. For Facebook/Myspace, target my key demographic (learn how to do this...know your market, most don't know who they're targeting, just the "type" of person) and send them to landing page as well.

    Send All Traffic to Capture Page
    I send all traffic to landing page to capture email address then forward to sales page, if they buy, they're taken off the first list. If they don't, then I send follow-up emails to close the deal.

    Then it's just a rinse and repeat when going into other markets, while creating bigger and better products within the current niches I'm in.

    I also use some of the other tactics above, but the ones I outlines bring in the most traffic, specifically when they start to rank in Google.

    PS - Once you've capped out with these methods, then next plan is go to the CPA networks and then blow it out of the water with traffic.

    PSS - Don't forget to use direct mail to drive visitors and sales.

      I'm stoked on article marketing. I'm new to this but love the idea of being able to pick a niche and write about all aspects of it from different points of view and implementing keyword strategies...
      I recently wrote a soon to be published article about telemarketers needing a better, more respectable line of work.I was one of the annoying folk calling out in my much younger years and wrote the article to let others trapped in telemarketing hell know how to get out...My day job as an insurance agent doesn't offer that kind of fun.

      I just started a blog too. That's a little more frustrating because no one reads it. I just got blog inferno to fix that problem so it should help.

        I also love article marketing. I think you have to have a genuine love of writing if you really want to be successful at it (or outsource I suppose). I have also had some success with social media marketing (eg, facebook). I think it is harder though, to get your message across in a shorter space (at least for me). I think someone also mentioned video marketing already but that is definitely another method I use. So, basically, content marketing (no matter the media).

    No matter what marketing strategy you choose to use, I have always thought it is important to give yourself a solid foundation.

    Here is a link to an article written by a fellow Warrior that will give those just starting out a great idea of how to get your feel planted and build that foundation for a long-lasting and profitable business.

    Getting Started with Your Own Online Business

    If you ge these things done properly and "get them out of the way", so to speak, you will be able to concentrate on what matters most...your product/service, and your customers/potential clients.

      Mine would be as follows....

      1. Appropriately target your consumer in as many channels as possible. A wide net achieves reach and targeting allows you to be more efficient with your spending/time.

      2. Give the consumer offers that match where they are in the buying cycle. If they are at a search engine ad, offer them a reason to click, not buy. If they are on a landing page, offer them a reason to opt-in, not buy. If it is an email, offer them a reason to open and read, not buy.

      3. Communicate well and often. Why should someone buy what you have vs. doing nothing or vs your competion? Answer those questions in an articlulated way (ile. the problem your solution solves, competitive comparison, features, benefits, proof, offer, call to action) You can't predict when someone is ready to buy. Example: People replace their cars years in between but you never know when a car will breakdown, be stolen or get in a crash which is why car dealers advertising constantly! Autoresponders or any other continuous automated communication process is a must. The marketing process is just like finding a spouse. You court them gently in the beginning, communicate constantly with gracious respect once you have them and it will be returned to you in sales, referrals and good will.

      I have repeated this over and over in a myriad of business. As long as you have a remotely decent product and pricing, you can plug anything into the above model and it will make money. GUARANTEED!

    I'm with Paul Myers on this, old-fashioned newsletter publishing. It's been paying the bills for years. Each issue sent is a new payday, and if you provide valuable content your readers develop a great deal of respect, gratitude, and even admiration for you, so you make money and get to feel plenty good about yourself.

    I am just getting into internet marketing(affiliate marketing). I am learning about clickbank and a few others. I am sure if I sell my own product i can make a lot more then affiliate marketing. I have heard a lot of success stories about both affiliate and own products. What do you guys suggest and i would like to hear more sucess stories. If i went down the line of doing my own product, should I create an e-book? Should I find something that I can sell like vitimans? I have limited to no money so I assume affiliate marketing is good for now.

    I think it's important to focus on building a business that will market products, as opposed to just trying to make money promoting products. I personally spent a lot of time bouncing around trying different things and never got anywhere because my lack of focus.

    So make a business plan before anything else, and stick to it at all costs. It'll help you stay focused on building your business instead of getting caught up with the latest 'make money' program and getting distracted.

    Sticking with a proven plan and keeping it simple gets my vote:

    1. Find a market that you can contribute to.

    2. Give away a free report that delivers value and helps your customers solve their problems/enhance their lives.

    3. Build your list with ALL your marketing efforts

    4. Create products and sell quality affiliate programs to your list.

    And don't complicate it =D

    Hey all,

    I would say using something like Clickbank as a vendor. This is an awesome way to actually kill two birds with one stone.

    1. Think about a problem you have that you want to solve.
    2. Search in Clickbank.com or CBEngine.com to find products related to that problem.
    3. Purchase the best ones, read through them, implement and learn.
    4. Rewrite the product. NB: I'm not condoning plagiarism. By rewrite, I mean in your own words, based on your own understanding.
    5. Voila! Your problem is solved (or at least you understand how to solve it) and you've got an income stream helping other people out.

    Cheers,

    -Johnson.

    My favorite way to market is by writing quality blog posts about whatever I happen to be "marketing" then Tweeting about my blog posts. People will go to read the blog post, then click on links within the blog post. *Note: You have to offer value on Twitter in order for people to respond to you there. Build rapport on twitter just like you would anywhere else.

    Mine one is pick up a very hot niche. (I have picked dating - by the way its industry not a niche )
    Do proper and heavy research.
    Find best platform for it.
    Know each and everything about it.
    Go deep into it and put all your efforts to make money out of it.

    You need to have deep interest in the niche before you make it a full time business. I was registered on many dating sites before coming into IM (as I was very naughty boy by then ) I was thinking that these sites would be making too much money, So I decided to jump into it. I did heavy and deep research on how to run a profitable dating site and I am running dozens of them today.

    Today my favorite marketing model is too help other people who want to make money.
    I provide them with a dedicated email support. I endeavor to put them on right track. I run a very popular free WSO to help as many people as possible.

    I prefer promoting on Blogs myself, but thats merely the form of promotion.

    By that I mean, putting an article/affiliate link on a blog, cant be called marketing. It's then time to market the blog. And if I understood right, this thread is about how to MARKET a product.

    The most money is to be made in affiliate marketing (...)
    After I create a website with affiliate offers and then I promote it through mainly social media and SEO for organic traffic.

    I have affiliate sales rolling in daily only by sending social media and google traffic to my website !
