This is Money Making Process, How can I Improve it?

9 replies
Hey guys I've being using this system for about three months, and Is working, you can use it and if you can improve it. I'll really apreciate any feedback.

This is my marketing process so far.

NOTE: I'm assuming that you already have your domain, your hosting, your autoresponder, your wordpress blog and your squeeze page up and running.

First I take one of the main keywords of my list made using market samurai (I simply love it), and write a 500 words article around it.

Then I rewrite it and make six more articles (If I'm in the mood I write seven different articles but this doen't happen so often). I compare their uniqueness here http://www.jetchecker.com/comparers (thanks to John Schwartz for the tip) and check that has more than 50% different.

I take the original article or the best one and submit it to ezine articles, linking my blog (in the body) and my squeeze page in the bio box.

The second article I post it in to my word press blog, linking my squeeze page, and then I ping it using pingoat.com

The third article I use it to make a Squidoo lens, and link my squeeze page and my blog. I also add some pictures and RSS feed.

The fourth article is turned into a hub page, linked to my squeeze page and my blog

The fifth article I shrink it into small paragraphs and bullets and make a power point presentation with it, then I recorded using Camtasia and read the article in the background (This is actually fun stuff). Then I upload the video to TubeMogul linking to my squeeze page. I put the video in my Blog as well.

The sixth article Is a short version of the previous and I convert it into an Aweber broadcast email to my list linking to my offer page (affiliate link) this can be a follow up message as well depending on the topic of the article.

The seventh article I submit it to other article directories using Article Mass Submitter (I used to use Viral submitter but I found this one better). Linking obviously to my squeeze page.

I take pieces of my article and post comments into blogs with the keyword luv plugin installed and post in forums linking to my blog (the most time consuming part).

I tweet about my new video, my new lens, my new hub, my new blog post, my new article, mixed with pieces of content (from the article) in this order, two content tweet and one promo tweet. I use Tools to Boost Your Social Media Productivity SocialOomph.com (former tweet later) to schedule the tweets with an hour of difference.

This process take me about four hours (divided in two days) and I repeat this process three times a week (with different niches).

Is all done by the book (or books, trainings, webinars, seminars, videos, etc.) I drive traffic to my site, free traffic. I built a list and made some money (not in the IM niche of course is so hard to rank well in this one) so this system works. But I feel that still there is something missing. The ultimate revelation that will take me to the next level.

Do you think this is proportional to the time spend? Or perhaps is a matter of how well the sales page of the product I promote convert? How can I measure how well a non Clickbank product convert?


Chris.

    As far as how-to-improve-it...

    Well, what are your numbers like?

    The traffic good? The opt-in %?
    The # of people on your list after
    X number of days?

    Your LEAD-CONVERSION rate?

    Other than that -- it's hard to make
    any judgement. But I think you're
    doing awesome :-)

    Thanks Marc.
    The traffic is an average of 900/day (some days more some other much less) with a opt in rate of 20% (too low I know...) after three months I have a list of about 16.000 suscribers and the convertion rate is a crappy 2% that's about 7K in three months. (this is on one niche)

    I know I can do it way much better than that.

    you'll double your business. And if you
    double your conversion rate...

    IT'LL DOUBLE AGAIN

    So if I were you, I'd look up "how to
    increase my opt-in rate" because many
    members are getting 40% to 80%!

    I would do this FIRST before even
    thinking about any other "tweaks"
    because all that info just slow you down.

    P.S. Basically you could be doing the
    exact same amount of work and
    pulling in 4x more income...
    Is a good Idea to work on my opt in rate, is actually something that I can work on it, but as affiliate there is no much I can do with the convertion rate.

    But I will definitively try to increase the opt in rate, once I do that, perhaps I'll search for another affiliate program that has better convertions.

    I use a very similar system for generating free traffic...

    If you're not getting conversions make sure that...

    1) The keywords you are using are money keywords. I do a quick ppc test to make sure that the keywords are profitable.

    2) Improve your sales copy.

      I take the best money keywords that Market Samurai can gives me.

      Unfortunaly as an affiliate there is not much that I can do in this process. Exept what Marc said, to redirect the traffic to a presell page. I'm working on that now, if this doesn't work I'll simply dish the product and find another.
