I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO? Review page? or capture emails? or blog? (I'M NOT ASKING HOW TO MAKE MONEY)

by SureForCash 9 replies
i'm currently beginning to take action, promoting clickbank products via article marketing, but not sure whether to direct traffic to a review page or to direct it to a wordpress blog. So, which one would you advise me to do?

also, if i'm to set up a review page then shall i use some sort of specific theme for wordpress or juts fill one post and make it look like an empty blog.

i know many will tell me to capture the leads email addresses and build a relation ship. BUT, if i did this then all my articles would have to change from offering a solution to the problem to giving a free guide out. in which case, when i come to sell a my actual product then i will have a LOT of unresponsive subscribers...


overall, im willing to put time and effort into my journey but dont know HOW to start.

your help would be very appreciated....

Thank You

    Your problem is this: Your right, and your wrong.

    What I mean is, you can make money sending traffic to a review
    page and OR a blog. Whatever YOU want to do and believe with
    some research will be the best use of YOUR time and resources.

    I, nor anyone here, can give you a specific direction to follow. I
    have to assume that your likely a 9 to 5 worker (currently or just
    laid off) and, your looking for someone like me to "tell" you what
    to do next like a good employee would do.

    Unfortunately, in business, that mindset can NOT exist if your
    doing business. You really do have to have a mind of your own
    and be willing to make a few mistakes along the way.

    There is NO way around it.

    I can give you my $10,000 formula right now free of charge,
    and you will STILL likely make a mistake or two to screw it
    up.

    Point is...you have free reign to do what you want and, stay
    away from asking for too many opinions because you can
    easily be persuaded out of something that COULD work for
    YOU...if only you went for it anyways and...you wouldn't
    know you screwed up because you took the advice of some
    loser who told you not to do something.

    So, I'm giving you permision to go for it.

        It partially depends too on the type of product you are promoting and your long term plans with that particular product as for what marketing method will work best for it.

        Also, are you planning to promote many products within the same niche, or just do a review page for the one product?

        You can buy yourself some time by doing some review pages on some of the free web 2.0 properties. If you find you are coming up with a plethora of information on the topic - more than one review page will suit, then it may be time to consider a full blog on the subject.

        Just my thoughts - but as was said there is no wrong or right answer.

          The answer depends on how much followup, if any, you think you're going to
          need to do in order to make the sale.

          For example, if I am promoting a CPA offer, all I care about is getting them
          to go to the site and fill out the form or whatever. I get paid whether they
          actually buy anything or not. Same with Adsense.

          However, if I'm selling my own product and it's quite a pricey one, the
          prospect may need more info before they can make a decision. In this case,
          I only get paid IF they buy. So I want to followup as much as I can in order
          to get that sale.

          Your problem is this, if I may be so blunt. You don't understand your business
          model, if you even have one. You probably know very little about the
          mindset of the people you're reaching (meaning you don't know what
          their hot buttons are) and thus, you don't know how to approach them.

          Figure that out FIRST and the rest of it will fall into place.

        Hey,

        Your choice between doing a blog or setting up a review page should
        be based on only 2 factors: what niche you're targeting and whether you're an expert in that niche or are willing to become one.
        Lets say you're willing to sell to the acne treatment market.
        Blog or review page?
        Blog will mean you'll have to add quality content regularly or no one
        will be reading it.You'll have to decently educate youself on that topic.
        Is it your thing? If not,then..
        Review page showcasing 3 best products in the niche can be just right for you.
        One note on the niches themselves:
        If you deal with a problem/pain driven market like acne treatment,
        review page can be more effective for a very simple reason of people searching for a quick solution and being not interested in getting on your list just to read stuff.

        This is my outlook - hope it helps.

        Have success!

    He's right. What works for some doesn't work for others.

    Set up both. Test. Find your own answer.

    Hint: Make a blog. A blog is the right answer.

    You can combine all of them... there is no right or wrong way to do it.

    You can make a squeeze page and give away a free report... That's the most simplest option.

    You can make a blog... having a blog means you should update it frequently with fresh and unique content. Can be tedious, but if you think you can do that, go for it. Also, a blog is both great for capturing emails and for review posts. Plus, overtime you can brand your blog and become an authority in your niche.

    And of course there's the review page... Have you tried the product? Then great! You can make a review page.

    My point... all of them are great, it really is up to you. You can try all of them. Marketing is all about testing and tweaking... see for yourself which one you like the most.
