Members,

What would make the Plug-In Profit Site better for YOU?

Please share your comments, suggestions and feedback in this post.

I'll review everything here. If it makes good sense and is possible for me to implement, I'll do it.

Thanks,

Stone

The Changes and updates you have made in the last month are crazy awesome....I for one appreciate all the time and energy you have put in to give all PIPS affiliates the guidance to succeed online, provided we take massive action and do the things you share to be successful :-)

I agree, the recent changes have been excellent. I do have few wishes though...It would be great if the opt in form at the top of PIPS sales page would grow our individual lists. Maybe an option to add a photo to the salespage as well?

Also, if we could get more different looking squeeze pages to promote PIPS that would help marketing with safelists and traffic exchanges. I know it would be better to make our own, but more the merrier...

Anyway, it's great to see PIPS improving so much lately, thank you Stone for that!

My suggestion is an easier way to join the different PIPS programs. Not sure if you have done the drill yourself in a while, but it is very complicated for beginners. Three of my friends who are sharp people tried it at the first week of February this year and gave up. As a result, I tried to join PIPS myself and I gave up trying to find some of the affiliate IDs for some of the programs. Seriously!

Jeffery, I have to respectfully disagree regarding joining the affiliate programs. English is not my first language and even I could join very easily all PIPS affiliate programs. First, there is a "Click Here To Sign Up" under every affiliate program and then there are boxes bit lower where you put your affiliate ID's after you have joined all programs. I'm not sure how it could be easier? And of course one can join programs at a later date and just add their affiliate ID in the member's area. All you need is a GVO account and a domain name to get started.

Having said that I might be completely wrong and perhaps Stone can find a way to make it easier. One way could be to have only one or two programs on the sales page (GVO?) and then have the rest of the programs in the member's area for members to join later when they have learned more how PIPS works.

One suggestion for Stone: How about making a short video of yourself talking about PIPS at the top of the sales page. Bit like Empower Network has David Sharpe talking on their sales page. That might make it more personal and as we have seen Stone makes excellent videos. The new Empower Network sales page looks really good so maybe at some point PIPS gets a new look as well?

What about training for social media marketing and perhaps a private members only Facebook group? Training for traffic exchanges (what are the best to join)? Same for safelists, there seems to be new ones coming every week or so.

SFI is easy enough to join and get the Affiliate ID.

None of this fast and easy:

7 Minute Workout & Empower Network
You have to wait for a countdown, watch a 11 minute video, optin, pay, and go through a payment processor.

DotComSecretsX. The page is raising alerts with Avast and McAfee Siteadvisor because it is collecting data on a non-secure page. The page had load problems in the beginning of February and now security alerts.

Those are the feedback issues received from potential customers.

I was not going to add anything but I will because I have to.

The 2nd email that goes out to new subscribers of your mini course Stone (Why would anyone want to be an affiliate?), it should not have HOST THEN PROFIT on. It should have Empower Network.

You said that you will add Empower Network and I don't see that you did it.

The last thing that I could add is to look at the PIPS sales page over the years and see which year got more members and converted better. Then take that same PIPS sales page with the help of the WAY BACK machine and test that page today to see if it converts better.

Jeffery, got it. I thought you were referring to the PIPS sales page. I agree completely with those things you mentioned. I guess many of those other sites are out of Stone's hands? If PIPS does the preselling well, customers should be send straight to the sign up page. On the other hand, maybe some new people want to see those EN and 7MWO videos so they know what the program is about? Maybe there should be 2 links; one for more information and one to sign up without any additional hoops?

DotComSecretsX was very difficult when I tried it. I think that should be dropped from PIPS completely as there are so many great 100% commission programs within PIPS and PIPS + EN already provide enough training as it is.

I'm bit surprised that Stone hasn't updated us on his plan with Pure Leverage. Also, 7MWO have changed it's pay plan which should be noted as well.

We have 'an embarrassment of riches' - The programs in our core are all excellent. However, we have so much training included in every program we have now - people have never been more confused or over-whelmed by conflicting priorities and instructions.

They don't know what to do first - in many cases what they are doing is counter-productive to PIPS - e.g., installing a DCSX blog on the domain so that I can't install the PIPS site there until that is deleted (or over-writing their PIPS site after the fact) - Spending all their time on the EN blog instead of promoting their PIPS site by posting to their blog there.

I think somewhere we need to be very concise and give them step-by-step directions on what they need to do first - PIPS - How can people do three trainings at once?

Thanks for letting us explore ideas with you.

I'll get straight to the point, now that Pure Leverage is live, this could be a great add to the PIPS suite of 100% commission programs.

I won't go so far as to suggest that Dot Com X be taken off because I recognize that Stone and Russell have a partnership relationship.

I mean, Russell also promotes PIPS with his .info page (which, by the way is a pretty slick landing page site; I registered in to check it out).

What would be good is to add Pure Leverage as a bullet point within the Host Then Profit portion of the GVO section in the PIPS sales page. If people see the incredible tools that come with Pure Leverage for only $24.95 a month, that is a hook, line, sinker right there and would compliment SFI, EN, DotCom, GVO, and 7MWO.

Pitch GVO as the hosting service and pitch Pure Leverage as the essential toolkit for marketers (i.e., elite coaching, autoresponder, video email, video conferencing, lead capture sales funnels that convert, etc.). I logged in today and saw all of the amazing templates for PPT, video, doodles, nature pics, buttons, and so much more >>> all this for $24.95!

A great add for PIPS in my opinion.

I am sorry to say - i couldn't disagree more tcallfitness

Stone may agree with you eventually, you never know...

Pure Leverage looks very good - however it is causing complete confusion for PIPS applications.

People join PL by accident apparently thinking that is the same as HTP - and then when they try to give me that login sequence to use for HTP - well it can't be done - Two different logins.

So they have to join HTP with or without Pure Leverage - and since they get the hosting and autoresponder for only $9.97 per month - I can't see doing both at all.

Pure Leverage has all the services @ GVO EXCEPT HOSTING -

HOSTING is the one thing that is required for a PIPS Site.

In asking them to join 5 programs on the sales page, there are only two things required to get the website - GVO - Host Then Profit (HTP) and a Registered Domain Name with the Nameservers set @ GVO HTP -

With that said - hecka 'back-end' sale though - the person will have exposure to the PL opportunity through the hosting and autoresponder - and I would imagine (just guessing) whoever the sponsor was for HTP would be happy that at some point in the future his downline 'upgraded' (GVO) by purchasing PL as well!

...sweet!

Nice Points Ms Pat . I myself is so confuse which one to do first . I end up doing different things which takes up so much of my time and not enough for my family which is the reason why I'm doing this in the 1st place. :confused:

Good point from Ms karille is having our own Facebook Group where the new
step-by-step procedures will be discussed and we can all exchange ideas and help each other.

Thanks to all.

Pat is right. There is an entry barrier.

Well, I just went through the process of joining and what an exercise. I am so emotionally and physically drained. And I did not join all the programs.. just too much.

All I can say is I am going to create my own user guide for my prospects to join PIPS. It will be a two step process. There will be no entry barrier.

See you on the inside

That's a great point Patricia. Thinking about the steps and tools needed to setup the PIPS site is tricky.

So, even if PL is not added to the 5 core programs, I agree that it is a great after program, if you will, so introduce to those who come through the PIPS program.

BTW, I noticed a change in the sales page, great enhancement.

I would like to suggest you that you should stick with any 5 programs at a time frame, lets say in one year. Then you could modify it with another better programs.

Nice! These are all excellent suggestions I believe. I have been reading through comments and I like them - one way or another we are all affected by the same things at one point. As you can tell, I am implementing Lesson 19 LOL. Although am supposed to be doing lesson 29. I am 10 days late LOL. It is hard to keep up with everything, the lesson are so detailed and I love it. Especially, lesson 15 that is where I spent most of my time.

Oh well, if my voice would count, I suggest the additional of PureLeverage as one of my comrade suggest above.

Secondly, I do not know what is happening, but most of solo ads are not accepting Empower Network or Dotcomsecrect. Even some of the onces that are provided in the lesson. The once I can afford to buy.

Thirdly, I like the new changes you have made to the main PIPS, However, I do not like the fact that you have to close the page more than once to get it off your screen. What do I mean by this, if you are in Traffic Swarm and click through the ads and PIPS comes up then you need to click off the page twice. If this is annoying to me, I guess it would be annoying to non-members. Although, I really love the new design and everything about it - Looks pretty cool.


Lastly, I do not know if my site works, I have not got any sign up for 29 Days today. I believe PIPS works, if we could be able to test our main site from within members area that would be great. When redesigning the main site some of the codes might have been left behind and cause a problem. Human is to error, I am not saying there is any error, but if I have a tool to frequently check my main site that would be awesome.

Thank you

Brainstorming...

I wonder if it would be possible to split the sign up process into two parts... and if doing so would increase the opt in rate...

For example, step 1 = GVO and SFI. You get the sales page (only?)

Then, step 2 = join (1 or more of?) the three big programmes to qualify for the Wordpress website set up for you at that stage, or some other reward.

Splitting it into two would make the initial sign up process quicker and easier and you could focus on a strong upsell for the second stage.

I don't know if this has come up yet, but I'd really like to be able to view how many uniques I get to my affiliate link and maybe even splash page? My only guage is to look in my gvo autoresponder to see if there have been any opt-ins, and after 7 days I've only got 1. For this reason I'd like to see if there are any people actually visiting those pages, and in a perfect world, to see where that traffic is coming from. I have invested enormous time and some money into many traffic programs, so it would be nice to be able to drill down a bit. Sorry....I come from an IT background and I'm all about the numbers! lol

HI Carla - you can view traffic stats to your website (your domain) in your hosting account cPanel 'Logs' - lots of interesting information in there.

No way to do this with the sales page though since it is on Stone's domain - and since PIPS is a free program there is no real 'matrix' or any kind of 'downline' or sponsor tracking.

There are statistics (commissions reports/geneology reports) in each affiliate program. That is where you would go to 'track' your sales!

Why not use a tracking service such as Trck.me? I use it to see how many times my affiliate links are shown on specific sites, and what percentage of those views are unique, plus how many clicks each page attracts.
