haha Got You!

Now you have to leave something valuable at least worth a dollar.

Let me start.

1. When you bookmark using DIGG it will show up on Google search within 24 hours..I did this. It's proven.

2. Ezinearticles have a high google ranking.

3. If you're gonna blog using PLR articles at least give it a common theme to be noticed.

4. You could easily create a download link by uploading your pdf file to your site and using the tag <a href="your_pdf.pdf">FREE MILLION IN A MINUTE</a>

ok..not its your turn....

    5. Free hosting sucks
    6. If you're not doing video, you are leaving money on the table
    7. Take action & make as many mistakes as you can to avoid making them later
    8. Start doing it as soon as possible

      Chris,

      I saw your generous offer to ask a question... so here I am.

      I started working through some StomperNet CD's and using Zeus to gather link partnters... and got stuck.

      Zeus (the software) makes a big deal out of having a "theme" for your link directory. Since Resource page links are (or appear to be) primarily for the spiders and getting ranked better, should I be concerned about having a theme among my Resource link partners?

      Thanks.

    Aim to discover how to do things the most effectively rather than the most cheaply. In the long run, it often amounts to the same thing.

    Save everything, even the article you wrote and decided was too crap even for a bot to read. You'll look at it with fresh eyes one day and turn it into one of the best things you've ever written.

    1.) Your signature line on the forum is valuable real estate. It's a waste not to have one. Don't abuse it, however, and read the forum rules.

    2.) AssociatedContent.com is also very good for article marketers. And they pay you - a teeny amount of money - for some of the articles that you write.

    3.) If you are going to create an adsense site, make sure that the site is well laid out for adsense - do a google search for adsense-optimized wordpress themes - and then make sure that you create a site based on high paying adsense words.

    4.) Consider affiliate marketing rather than adsense because affiliate marketing pays better.

    5.) Picking high gravity, quality Clickbank products to promote - as in, don't promote Water 4 Gas just because it's high gravity, you need to promote something that is ethical, high quality AND popular - has worked well for me.

      Dana, I'll break the mold.

      100) If you need money just ask for it. In fact if you need anything just ask for it. Remember to have something to give worth as much or more than the amount of money you are asking for. From your end it's called over deliver.

      A homeless man on the street has his formula = ask xxx people for $x and he will make $xx by the end of the day. What does he give in return? Either the warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you help someone or the relief you get when he leaves you alone after "paying" him to go away. What do you expect for a quarter?

      rapidscc asked for something worth a dollar. He got it. He gave a tip worth more than a dollar, he over delivered.

      You get when you give. (Don't look for it, I already own the .com LOL) So....

      100) If you need something just ask for it.

Because you should be taking consistent action each and every day on a specific part of your business plan. If you don't have a business plan, get one. The WF should not be a part of your business plan. It is like being down the pub, treat yourself AFTER you have put in some income producing activity for the day.

            Make a 1 year plan.

            6 months into working that plan, assess the situation and make an added one year plan, basd on your 6 month results.

            You WILL not do this without a plan of action

              My two bits:

              Write an article and submit it to a few article sites like ezines. Once it is published write a few blogs and put the link to that article in your blogs. This will drive a lot more traffic to that article.

    For what this is worth....

    If you are a Newbie or an old hand with no sales....
    Prowl around in the Forum until you discover who the top three or four marketers (not the big Gurus). Write them down on a 3 x 5 and then research the heck out of them. Choose the one that stands out as a man or woman you can trust. Then follow that person's lead. Do everything they are doing within the budget you have to work. Quit trying to follow everybody. You will have plenty of time later on when a few bucks start hitting your PayPal to check out the others on your list. An old sage, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."

    THREE THINGS YOU MUST DO IN ORDER TO HAVE SYSTEMS WORKING FOR YOU DAYT IN AND DAY OUT WHILE YOU ARE SIPPING CHAMPAGNE...


    1. Network with other marketers and share your problems with them, also not to forget brainstorm together on the problems that any of you are having to make lives much easier for all of you. Also help eaxh other with their businesses.

    2. Automate as many things as possible through the use of MACROS etc. That will free up a LOT of time that can be used elsewhere for something that is not redundant.

    3. Outsource anything that does not require your own effort and time specifically because you know you are having it done from a professional at a reasonable price.

    Worth a dollaR?

    If you take this lesson from here, its worth BILLIONS of dollars for you and even for me sop I keep them central to my businesses.

    WARNING: These methods can have a dramatically negative impact on your love life if you try to use them there. And you risk losing the person of your dreams to the person whom you outsource the redundant tasks to... hehehe

    1) Instead of placing blank index pages inside folders that people shouldn't have access to (like your [images] folder), place an index page containing a "secret" unadvertised offer. Many people look in commonly known folders for the heck of it. May as well take advantage of their eyeballs.

    2) Never play leap-frog with a unicorn.

      If you are doing the same thing over and over again and not getting the desired results, then it is time to try doing something different.

      This applies as well to "not doing" something over and over again.

    2) In-depth research uncovers "voids" in the market. Discover and service these and you instantly position your business to win.

    3) Build your whole business concept around an incredibly powerful "irresistible offer." Make it a BIG breakthrough -- new and exciting.

    4) Integrate as many newsworthy and viral elements into your business concept right from the start.

    5) Only sell products where "a strong desire to buy" already exists.

    Know where your conversion bottlenecks are. For example - if you are doing article marketing to drive traffic to a squeeze page, after which you followed up with an offer, then track -

    Total article views
    % into URL clicks (to your squeeze page)
    % opted in
    % confirmed (assuming double opt-in)
    % opened follow-up email
    % clicked thru to sales page
    % clicked thru to OTO / upsell page
    % purchased

    Know where your bottlenecks are, and fix them. Once you've got your conversion machine well oiled up (or as Mark Joyner puts it - 'achieve minimal efficiency') - then it's a matter of pumping in upfront traffic (or increasing article pageviews in the example above).

      First off, I'd like to say that a real marketer would have said to leave something worth at least $0.97.

      Now then...


      REFUND RATES - If they dominate your thoughts, you should focus your energy on how to make your product better rather on how to stop "scammer" "troll" refunders. A quality product is one that is researched thoroughly and tested properly. Assuming you have a viable market, if your conversion rate is low and your return rate is high, you need to tweak some things before you roll out.


      ATTAINING YOUR GOALS - You can't improve what you don't measure!


      MATH - Break your yearly goals down to monthly goals. Break your monthly goals down to daily goals. For example, say you want to make $50,000/year as an affiliate selling a $47 ClickBank product with a 75% commission rate ($35.25/sale). That's $4,167 per month (118.22 sales) and $136.99 per day (3.89 sales). If your traffic to the affiliate sales letter converts at 2% you need to send 5,911 visitors per month (roughly 195/day). Next you make your plan for generating those 195 daily visitors. Point is...know your numbers.

    1. Take any instance of the word "That" from your salesletter and see how strong your sales letter gets.

    2. .Me domain name for listbuilding in any new niche. ..Example.. MusicLearningfor.Me , SingingLikeADolphinfor.Me ..Its creative and sticks..

    3. Always use a exit popup or exit sales converter no matter what other IMers are thinking about it.. It works like gangbusters.

    4. Read how to protect your paypal account from getting limited.. its bound to happen, SOONER OR LATER. A free read of my own limitation:

    Be positive.....Positive people attract others.....

    We live in the world of visual things….people read less and less, especially younger generation ….So Use Visuals as much as you can.

      1. Always capture email addresses of your buyers (even if it means creating another awesome product to give away just to get them on list) so you can follow up with complimentary offers.

      2. Stop trying to find a niche or prodcut nobody has created. Study what is already working, model after them and become even better.

      3. Always overdeliver (that's why I left three $1 answers instead of just one!) and your customers will stay with you for life.
