Testing, Testing, Testing 1 … 2 … 3

Most of you will be setting up sales funnels of some sort – whether you are selling your own product or if you are selling affiliate products. Even if you are looking for Adsense clicks or autoresponder sign-ups you still have a sales funnel in place.

Now the big issue many of us face is those ghastly little creatures that slip in to the works and make everything go wrong … the gremlins.

I have found time and time again that there will be some problem with my sales funnels – a button won’t work, a graphic won’t display or even I’ve spelt a few words wrong. In most cases I find this problem before Joe Public sets his eyes on it, but occasionally one will slip through the net.

When you are creating any website or sales funnel you need to map out (on paper is best) exactly what is going to happen. This can be as simple or as complex as you need, but it allows you to fully understand what you are expecting your customer experience to be like.

Then you need to go through every single step and make sure it is perfect and slick. Obviously avoid clicking on Adsense ads which is a violation of their terms of service, but test everything else. Sign up to your autoresponder (always a good idea so you can check the messages you are sending), make a test purchase of the main product and then test different combinations of the upsells and downsells. You need to ensure that people get displayed the right offers, that the offers work and that people get the products they paid for, and can’t get the ones they haven’t paid for.

This may sound like a lot of work, but it is going to make a big difference to your bottom line. It could, quite literally, make or break a product launch. The last thing you need is for your potential customers to be unable to buy your one time offer or fail to sign up to your list.

When you see the slick product launches you know that all of this has been tested, tested and then tested again to make sure everything works.

However, you might not be doing big product launches and may just be setting up sites as an affiliate. Do you know that everything on your webpages is working as expected?

How do your websites look in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari? Sure they are all meant to interpret HTML code in the same way, but I can tell you from experience that they do not – a website that looks great in Chrome can end up looking a frightful mess in IE.

If you are making money through contextual advertising (like Adsense) how relevant are the ads on your page? You might have just set up some ad blocks and thought that’s cool but if the ads have little or not relevance to the content of your site then you will earn almost nothing from your page.

All of this is a vital part of running an online business and I can guarantee you that every successful marketer spends a good portion of their time testing their sales processes to make sure they work and then they tweak them to squeeze every penny out of their customers … more of that another day though!

All the best,

The Importance Of Having A Mentor

You will often see marketers selling you their coaching programs and the prices are often astronomical. You can pay $10,000 to $20,000 or more for their knowledge to help you get ahead and succeed in making money online.

The trouble is, for many people this is at a point where it could financially cripple them and put them in serious debt. For some though it is a lifeline that takes you to success, but you need to remember that you still have to do a lot of work! With any coaching program you are not paying them to do your work for you; you are paying for their knowledge, access to their buddies and to get a leg up in to the Internet Marketing ‘old boys’ network.

However, you don’t need to spend that much money to get yourself a mentor. A mentor does not have to be an expensive coach and could just be a friend who has a bit more knowledge than you or different experiences.

You can find a mentor in an account manager at an affiliate marketing company or a blogger that you can chat to who is willing to share his knowlege and skills. You might meet someone at an Internet marketing event and they could mentor you, offer you advice and guidance to help you succeed online.

A mentor doesn’t even have to be someone that you know. Plenty of people use well known figures such as Anthony Robbins, Warren Buffet, Donald Trump and so on as mentors. Reading their auto-biographies and anything else they have produced is a great way to get a view inside their minds and understand how they tick. You can even find the videos they have produced on YouTube and watch those because it is going to give you an insight.

Mentoring is a vitally important part of success and almost all successful people will have one. Anthony Robbins was mentored by Jim Rohn and himself mentors / coaches other people, some of whom pay him a massive amount of money.

Whether you build a network of buddies around yourself and mentor each other or your find someone you know and trust it is important for you to find someone to mentor you. Mentoring is a great way for you to very quickly get ahead in any aspect of your life and to tap in to the knowledge of someone who has succeeded (more than you) in that area.

Before hiring a mentor or coach make sure you check out their credentials. There are a lot of people out there who set themselves up as coaches yet have had very little experience or success in their field. Oftentimes people will become coaches, particularly in Internet Marketing, because they know there is a lot of money to be made delivering very intangible results. But you aren’t interested in intangible results, you want very real results so you need to make sure you don’t fall for any snake-oil sales patter and interview your potential mentor as much as they interview you. They will expect you to do your due diligence and make sure they are a right fit with you.

A mentor is a great way for you to really take a shortcut to success and it can help to make the learning curve a lot less steep. A mentor will provide you with a different perspective on your problems and help you to get the level of success you desire. Be aware though that as you develop and grow your needs will change and so you may find that your needs from a mentor will change too.

All the best,
Connor

Why Internet Marketing Conferences Will Boost Your Business

If you have been in Internet Marketing for any length of time you will have seen that there are many conferences on the subject run all over the world at lots of different prices. The quality levels of conferences vary from complete pitchfests, i.e. little useful content and just people selling their products, to high value seminars that teach you powerful information to boost your business.

Whilst you can get a lot of value from what is being taught at these seminars, the real value comes from the people you meet whilst you there. You will here people tell you that the big partnerships and deals are struck over a pint of beer in the bar in the early hours of the morning and it is true.

You want to meet as many people as you can and build relationships with them. These people can act as mentors, business partners, joint venture partners and more and many million dollar deals are struck over a beer in the dead of night.

Ideally you are looking to meet people that are on the same level as you or, even better, more advanced than you. This way you can pull yourself up to their level. Of course, if you are in a position where you are able to mentor other people you may well do that instead.

There are going to be a lot of different people in the audience at any Internet marketing event and don’t let their appearance put you off. Some of the wealthest and most successful people at these conferences will be dressed like tramps yet some of the least successful will be dressed to impress, applying the fake it until you make it principle.

Get to know as many different people as you can and talk to them. Don’t give away your trade secrets like product launch info to just anyone, but network and get business contacts you can email and add to skype. Make sure you find out about each person because you never know when you may need their skills or you could be of use to them. There’s something cool about being in the position where you need a JV partner or want to learn about a subject and have a contact on Skype from a conference that you already know and can talk to.

The reason it is better to meet people face to face at these conferences rather than online is that you end up with a personal connection. You aren’t just some text on the end of the computer, you are a real person that they know and have built a relationship with.

There are a lot of different conferences all over the world for Internet marketing. Some are generic and others have a specific focus such as CPA marketing, affiliate marketing, traffic, SEO and so on. It is important that you find the one that is right for you. It needs to be the right price, the right subject and the right location for you – remember you will have to pay to travel there and stay over and you really NEED to be staying in the hotel where the conference is so you can get the most out of the networking side of it. If you are staying elsewhere then you won’t be able to stay as late and meet as many people.

Attending Internet Marketing conferences is a must for anyone who really wants to get ahead and succeed in their online business. It’s a great way to pick up information but also to meet potential business partners and more.

All the best,

Why WordPress Is The Best Platform To Build A Website On

There are many ways in which you can build a website ranging from hand coding the site in HTML or PHP through to using a content management system such as Drupal, Joomla or others. However, there is one platform which has gone from strength to strength and has proven to be incredibly popular because it is so easy to use and create good looking sites.

WordPress was originally developed as a blogging platform back in the days when blogging was highly trendy. Since these days WordPress itself as evolved beyond a simple blogging platform and turned in to a full blown content management system.

One of the major contributing factors to its success has been the fact it is so flexible and third parties can easily create add-ons for it. Today it has a thriving community creating plugins to extend the functions of the software and designing themes to change how it looks and feels. Many of these are freely available, though premium plugins and themes are often chargeable and some can command quite a price!

Within your MasterResellRights.com membership you will see that we often provide you with WordPress themes and plugins. These are a great way for you to not only make money selling them (Internet marketers love pretty much anything to do with WordPress) but also to enhance your own portfolio of sites.

With the WordPress themes you will see some generic ones but many are designed for a specific niche. These niches will have been careful researched to make sure that they are profitable and have traffic. Many of the themes will come preloaded with content and graphics, though you will want to add your own to make your site unique. If the site comes with 10 pre-loaded articles, for example, you can remove them or you can add 10-20 unique articles based around related keywords to your site which should avoid any duplicate content penalties.

The plugins in your membership extend the functionality of WordPress, allowing it to do things that it didn’t do “out of the box”. This includes build a list, display Amazon adverts, live chat with your visitors and more. It means you can really add value to your website and without the expense and trouble of coding. All you do is click a couple of buttons and then before you know it you have adding new features to your website without having to go near a line of code.

WordPress is an easy to use platform but if you aren’t sure how to use it, we have some WordPress training videos in your membership. Check these out as it will help you really get to grips with this powerful piece of software.

More and more marketers are moving their website empire to WordPress because it is so easy to use and so powerful. It is definitely the platform of choice and looks to remain that way for some time to come.

All the best,

Linkbuilding That Works In 2013

Since the Penguin and Panda struck search engine rankings, many marketers have been running around in circles like headless chickens wondering what link building does and does not work now. The end result has been a significant drop in rankings for many websites and too many people struggling with deciding what links to build. Sadly, this indecision has caused many people to not bother at all with building links and so they have little chance of making money without traffic.

The fundamental change to link building has been that Google has closed many of the loopholes that Internet marketers were using. This means that building spammy, low quality links to your website simple isn’t going to work any more. Building a website and throwing just one type of link at it, isn’t going to work any more either.

You need to be more creative, more organized and more consistent in your link building.

If, for example, you built 10,000 links to your site today and none for the next week this would raise a red flag to Google because it is unnatural link building. However, if you built 100 links today and every day for the next week, it would look very natural. Even if you built 10,000 links to your site today and every day for the next week it will still look natural – trending subjects can expect to get a lot of links.

But you see what I mean here. If you are going to build links you need to be consistent about it because that is what Google wants to see. They are looking for naturally built links from relevant sites.

And that is another key … “relevant sites”.

Google doesn’t want to see links to your dog training site from a maternity dress site, a duck call site and a site about cockroach farming. Those links are not natural and are not relevant, meaning they are most likely built or artificial, both of which Google looks out for and penalizes people for.

If your dog training sites has links from a dog training blog, a dog training wiki and a dog lover on a social bookmarking site then it is going to look a lot more realistic and it isn’t going to encourage any penalties from the Big G.

So two of the keys to link building is to ensure you build links from relevant sites and you build links consistently.

Another way to build links is to create a Web 2.0 Buffer Network, which we’ve discussed in detail in this months Millionaire Profits System video (remember to contact us with any topics you’d like to see covered). These are extremely effective and protect your money site.

So long as you concentrate on building relevant links to your money site from quality sites then you will do well in the eyes of Google. These good quality, relevant links will help your site get ranking and make sure it stays there, no matter what Google does in the future.

All the best,
Connor

Consistency Is The Key To Success

One of the biggest issues online marketers face is consistency. Way too many marketers try to do too much and then wonder why nothing succeeds. Unfortunately with the constant peddling of “new” money making methods by Internet Marketers, it causes way too many people to get distracted from their goal of building a successful business online.

You probably already know a dozen different ways of making money online, if not more, but how many of these are you working on? How many sites have you got set up that are monetized in different ways and how many of these are actually making you any money?

Now I know you shouldn’t have all your eggs in one basket and you should diversify your income, but there is something missing from this statement, “Once you are actually earning an income”.

There is no point setting up a website that relies on organic search engine traffic and then moving on to the next best thing before you have the site ranking and earning money for you. Diversifying your income is all well and good, providing you actually have an income!

There are a lot of distractions out there and the sales copy on many of them is very persuasive. Remember that these copywriters can get paid tens of thousands of dollars for a single sales letter so they are meant to be persuasive and push all your buttons. They are designed to make you want to buy the product and believe its claims.

I’ve seen people go from nothing to thousands of dollars per month online in the space of a few months and every single one of the people have done it the same way. They have done it through consistent focus. One person I know earned $3000 in their first month online without spending a single penny! How many peope do you know could do that? He wrote and submitted between 30 and 40 unique, quality articles every single day to create that income and a lot of it became a passive income!

I know another person who went from $0 to $8,000 a month in around six months by doing nothing except building Amazon affiliate sites and then getting them ranking. Another person went from $0 a day to $100 a day in six weeks purely by writing and submitting Kindle books.

What do all these people have in common?

They were consistent in their focus and were not distracted by snake oil salesmen!

Whatever you decide to do, focus on it 100% and you will make money from it. If you stopped the distractions you would be surprised how much you can actually get done in a day! Best of all for you, whatever way of making money you can find plenty of resources within your MasterResellRights.com membership – just don’t get distracted by all the great things you’ll find in there!

All the best,
Connor
