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.

    I have two

    Facebook Competition

    First of all you have the classic competition, where you use a resource such as Facebook to announce that someone that posts your message as their status will win $50

    Your message is basically a link to your site, and instructions for others to enter the competition. Oh and if you're very evil you can make them sign up to your list to be eligible for the competition. You don't have to use Facebook for this and of course you do not need to limit the prize money to $50 Anyway people see the status on Facebook, want to win the money and copy it. If you sign them up to a list to be eligible to win, you can then notify them of further competitions. This lets you build a big advertising force, all posting your links for one $50 a week/month prize.

    Naughty Picture

    In this plan you need to make an picture advert, that when zoomed in on looks like something naughty You put this picture on the top of a page on your website/blog, and only after they have scrolled down do they see it's actually just your advert, zoomed in.

    Hint: The inside of the elbow can look like boobs, and the hand can be holding your advert

    Then go to Microworkers and get a load of people at 10c a go Stumble the page. Just make sure the page has social bookmarking buttons. This way you can quickly see lots of backlinks, though all for the wrong purpose.

    Cheers,

    One strategy I've used is to create a product and allow others to sell it. For example, this can be a software that you give away to build your list, but offer others the chance to give it away or sell it to their list.

    Depending on the type of software you can work this a few ways. You can require it be activated, thus adding them to your list. Another technique is to add your own ads inside the software so that you have a chance to make a sale everytime the owner uses it.

    Also, I've had success using software that enabled me to send messages directly to the software so the user saw the message when they used the software.

    Have a page that offers free "follow me" buttons, or something similar - like this page does: Free Twitter Buttons - Get Free Twitter Follow Buttons
    I use to own that one by the way. You'll notice that the code it gives out has a link back to the website in it. With all of the links back I had that website up to a PR5 in a little over a month. This can be done w/ many different graphics and gadgets where you give out the code.

    Ok, this one is something I have used with great success.

    Making viral content is not enough, you need to give it a "push" to get is shared on the big venues.

    So I go to microworkers.com and for a very small fee you can get yourself 100, 200 or whatever diggs, stumbles etc from people doing "micro tasks".

    That is the leg up good content sometimes needs, and it works.

    People are always intrigued by pictures so placing a unique one will surely make the page viral. If you're using FB ads, the status message below it can also say a lot to catch attention.

    Offer a product free for suggesting 5-10 friends after they opt-in. NOTE: make sure your script uses the opt-in's email address to send the emails, and that it can check to ensure the suggested emails are real. Works very well :-)

    This is something I posted in my membership forum; thought I would post it here as well:

    Today I am going to be giving a few tips for our assassins to use enabling them to build a list while giving it the possiblity of becoming viral.

    Alright, the first step in todays course will be getting some PLR. Seeing as how your an assassin this won't be a problem. Find a book or something in your chosen niche and download it.

    Now, after your download is complete, open up the doc file. What your going to want to do is turn this entire book into an ecourse for your subscribers. Instead of offering them a book you will be giving them an X amount of day's worth of content.

    After you get your book cut into peices and sectioned off go ahead and edit it to fit your personality. Make it flow together for the peice of what your doing and make sure you include sections at the end such as stay tuned next time for your next course.

    Now, what your going to be doing is setting this up a bit differently. How your going to want it to work is subscribers will get your follow up sequence by email. It will take them to a blog or static page and on this page you will have the content for them to read over. You will need to make sure that users will not be able to look through the pages and find the future courses, A static html page would work great for this, however.. If using wordpress I would suggest using a possible sales letter/squeeze page theme and have it set up much like this website is.

    Now for the viral factor, you will need to head over to the facebook developers page.
    Login | Facebook

    Your going to want to fill this information out. The site name that facebook is asking for is the site that any facebook users will be directed to when clicking on your link from their wall. Make this link direct to your squeeze page. After you finish be sure you get down your unique ID, after you write this down, go here:

    http://developers.facebook.com…..s/comments

    Now here is where you will get a code you will need to insert at the bottom of your course. Inside the code you will find a section that looks like this:


    #appId=APP_ID&xfbml=1

    You will need to replace "APP_ID" with the uniqe ID you recieved from the first link.

    Now, here is what this will do.

    A subscriber joins your email list. After joining they will then get an email series (Suggested every other day to leave room for unexpected broadcasts) that when read will provide a summary of your lesson and a link to the posts. Whenever they click through and read, they have the option of leaving a comment, if they do so it will be sent to facebook as well as shown on the page. When it is sent to facebook, all of their friends will see it and will click the link which will then take them back to your squeeze page.

    And, then the process starts over again with a new subscriber. Free traffic to your squeeze page and even a new subscriber base to market to and build relationships with.




    To your success,
    Matthew Roe

    P.S. This can be used for anything, not just PLR. PLR just happens to be my membership so I tailored it to fit the need.

    The biggest fallacy regarding the term "viral" is a video with Britney Spears snorting coke or blowing the pool boy.......getting 20 zillion hits.

    The best use of "viral video marketing for Vinnie" has been tight, easy to find, PASSION BASED NICHES...AND THEN USING MY EYE CANDY TO PROMOTE AND ATTRACT ATTENTION.

    Point is simple.....if you get 5K views in a niche like Why Humming Birds Hum or Bumble Bees Bumble.....I would say you have taken over that "niche" and those 5K views are going to bring u in more money then some video that you get lucky with that does 50K views....but leads to no where....aka...a road minus any offer.

    You Tube is a major search engine...filled with micros niches with videos filled with low quality ****.

    A little creativity and personality and you can take over these joints like Vlad the Impaler.

    In 8 weeks......since I've actually started posting videos for my current project ........I've generated over 22,000 views and it keeps growing daily as does my list.....as my hyper link is live in each video. I hate the word auto pilot as I've literally shot nearly 60 videos....but I also shoot fast...and do NOT use computer generated templates that smack of salesmanship.

    Viral Video Intros didn't show up anywhere a few months ago...now I'm crushing YouTube and Google and just about a ton of blogs....so I don't even know how many peeps have seen my "ghetto style" videos with hot babes.

    How To Videos that don't suck....work very well in the right niches......as well.

    So get over the notion you need to go double platinum....in order to make money cuz it aint so.

    peace, Vegas Vince

      What is all this ptc or ptread advertising worth because
      in my eyes incentivised visits just don't seem to be worth
      my time. I don't feel as though I'm going to receive interested
      visitors(as far as what I'm selling goes) when they are ptc, ptr
      aka incentivised. Has anybody round these parts or anywhere else
      ever had results worth buying when it comes to campaigns focused
      on ptc-ptr? I have been tempted SOOOO many times to try but
      every bone in my body has told me to use common sense.. Paid
      visitors just don't have plans to buy what-so-ever, they are trying
      to earn. I do know this is not always the case but can someone

        This post has been in this site for a while but I want to reply just the same. I am replying because this is also a questions I have been itching to understand. Based on my reviews of articles relative to internet marketing, I sort of understand this a bit. Just a bit though and thus, I want confirmation from those knows better than I do.

        Paid visitors are actually not your customers. You pay for their visits because you need to rank on search engines. Ranking high on search engines will only happen when you have lots of visitors and links to your site.

        You pay them to visit your site but you can spend hundreds of dollars and still they will not buy from you. Although, if you get hundreds or thousands of visitors to your site, then ranking well (not high, because this is not an assurance) on search engines is possible.

        If you do rank high because of those paid visits, potential customers looking for what you are offering may find you and thus visit your site. In my opinion, this is only me, rather than pay for visits, why not do informative, quality and creative contents in your blogs or website.

        This will invite visits, legitimate visits that you do not have to pay. But if you have the money and you want to rank high fast on search engines, pay visitors, do SEO, post useful articles and promote through images, videos and in social media. Internet marketing is effective but it takes efforts and, in case of paid visits, costs.

        Any violent reaction from those who know, please?

    I thanked these guys skid_roe & jazbo which came with something which I also thought of in the past.

    Going viral is totally dependent on the competition or you say directly proportional to what you are expecting from your market.

    Coming up with an app, a script, a software is one of the coolest methods i learnt so far & got to see them here today

    Great Share !!!

    I had some success on going viral on Face Book.
    I shared below in another part of the warrior forum, Here its again....

    Face book is a host to millions of posts and images shared by people every day. More than 99% of those images and posts goes down the page and are not seen again by people (unless you search for them yourself) But there are some posts and images which are constantly shared by people.

    It is not easy for a post and image to go viral on Face Book. All of us try for our images to go viral but we cannot force them because those images are not of much interest. Those images lack interest of people in them.

    You would need to be innovative, scientific and creative. Think what sort of images are liked by most people. What would bring interest of people in your image. This is not a simple task to acheive but if you sit down and start thinking you can figure it out.

    I have shared thousands and thousands of images on Face Book but they were all the same lacking people's interest in them.

    I started thinking in innovative way until I found an idea. I shared one image in august 2013 and it went viral and as of today it has been shared 318958 times. That image brought me more than 215K fans to one of my dating site's fan page and the page did send thousands of members to my dating site.

    As I said above it is not easy to go viral on Face Book but if you think well, I promise you will come up with one idea or another.

    Tips;
    Think when your mind is free of stress and any other sort of distraction.
    Discuss with your friends, family and collegues ( you never know, one of them might have a thrilling idea to help you out)
    Keep testing and never give up on going viral on Face Book.
    Treat your self as innovative and creative.
    Think in a positive and scientific way.

    All the best
