I feel like, obviously, I'm missing something obvious when it comes to this IM stuff. And I'm hoping someone in here can give me a shove in the right direction, or give some actual advice as to what could be going wrong with my process.
Okay, so I've been trying to make some progress for almost 2 years now with this IM stuff, and all I've done so far, is make about 4 websites / blogs, that don't really have a sales page or generate a list of any sort. I put the forms on my site to try to get people to sign up, but they don't seem to have any desire to. Not that I blame them, they have no reason to. I do offer a couple of custom PDF's for their sign-ups, but I'm not sure if it's enough.
I have setup some squeeze pages, and tried sending traffic to them with safe-lists, but since the safe-lists mostly target out of my niche, it's mostly wasted emails.
I am getting a little traffic, maybe 10 - 15 visitors a day, but I'd barely call that consistent, and just too little to be of any consideration.
I have read / viewed a few different training guides:
The clickbank Code
The affiliate code
Google Siphon System
And another one that I can't even remember the name of.
The training packages seemed to be helpful at the time, but as I worked through them they seemed to leave out key points, like what to put for sales copy, what to use as incentive's, etc. And the traffic systems, were either "Adwords" or some other form of ppc traffic. Nothing that would be useful to someone on a micro budget.
So, I guess I'm asking, if someone was to recommend one training package, what would it be? What covers the basics the best, and explains the in's and out's of landing page copy - squeeze page list generation, sales funnel setup... and of course, the stuff that helps SEO, while not hurting my brain.
I was seriously considering investing in WP-Mage, until I saw the price tag, no way I can afford a $1000 product, not until I'm making at least $1000 a month, and right now, I'm averaging about $20 / month in sales, never mind profit.
I guess for any proper help, it would be best to show what I've setup so far, so here it is:
Squeeze pages offering free lessons:
Learn Guitar In 15 Minutes
Learn The Guitar In 15 Minutes or Less!
Learn The Guitar in 15 minutes!
the main page is located at
http://learn-guitar-in-15-minutes.com/ and there are some offers of free products on there, but I'm not sure if they get seen as it's a bit of a magazine layout and might be too distracting.
I think the main problem, is that I dont' know how to link the site to any sales funnel. Are those two seperate ideas, or concepts?
I am ranking in google on the first page, but only for 1 keyword phrase, and that one doesn't get much traffic at all. But at least It's a start.
Should I be simply trying to generate more pages for each keyword? in the niche? Something like what WP-Mage does automatically?:
and let each keyword rank on it's own?
Any advice on copy, site setup, blog setup, page structure, anything like that would be greatly appreciated.
I'm usually in the Friday Night Chat, but I don't know how long I'll be able to be in there each Friday, but I do get ideas from being there, and I've learned so much from being in this community.
Would most of my questions be covered if I took the leap and joined the War Room? I'm not against paying for the help, I just think that a lot of the questions I have are more of a beginner level, and I thought I'd be able to find the answers with some research. However, I have simply come up with more questions...
Should I stop with the blogs and simply push forward with sales funnels and squeeze pages?
Thanks again, in advance. I look forward to any replies.
