Be precise and accurate in your posts

You need to write what you are sure of, while researching what you do not know. A good blog can lose its credibility as well as its readers if it publishes something imprecise, libelous, or untrue. Always take your time to verify that the information you have there is true to the best of your knowledge, and you will keep traffic to your blog flowing.

Write It Yourself Tue, 27 Sep 2011 13:04:34 +0000 Paul This is the part where most newbies find themselves unequal to the task.
They just get struck in the mentality that their product need to be perfect otherwise they’ll be ridiculed.

After being two and half years in the internet marketing field and successfully creating and selling millions of dollars of worth of information products, I can assure you that there is very little truth in this false assumption.

Although I can’t deny the fact that you need sufficient knowledge of your subject before you start,the perfection kind of thing is totally ridiculous.

When I started out,I too had all these crippling fears and it took me 3 long weeks to finish my first report even if it was less than thirty page long…

Now after successfully creating and selling more than 40 products in a variety of niches, I can confidently say that the buyers don’t seek Shakespearean verses .They just seek solutions to their problems…and if you can present that in a simple manner, you are going to make a lot of sales.

The truth is that no one can create a perfect product..You can find faults even in the products created by the best experts in the field.

You just need to have more knowledge than your prospective customers and you can easily attain that by going through article directories and few pre-existing products on the topic.

Once you have some knowledge on the subject,just start writing.Just write down everything you know.Don’t worry for the grammatical mistakes,just keep writing.You can always correct the mistakes afterwards.

Every writer sometimes feels the writer’s block.It’s a painful situation.During such phases,it feels like you have run out of words ,ideas get lost and if you try to write a single sentence ,it turns out to be crap.

The good news is that you can easily overcome this block with practice, perseverance and determination. The best way to get over this block is start writing, even if all you write in the beginning is total crap.

You’ll experience that the momentum builds with time, concentration returns and you start feeling more and more comfortable, words starts falling into right places naturally and ideas start coming to your mind whenever you need them.

As far as writing is concerned, you can easily create 20E30 page reports in a day or two by just applying the following formula:

i)Create a clear outline before you start writing:

The biggest hurdle you can create for yourself is the lack of a proper plan.Break your report down in chapters and note down how much content you are going pack in every chapter.Stick to that outline when you go for completion.

Lets assume that you are creating a product on the topic “acne”.Then your outline can be like:

“What is Acne?”

“What are the causes behind its outbreak?”

“The Damage Acne can do to your confidence and personality”

“atural Cures for Acne:

ii)Identify Headlines:

There will be some major topics inside your report.Clearly specify them.Write them down in a notepad or a piece of paper.You are going to create your report based on these major points.

iii)Identify subEheadlines:

It always happens.When you sit down to write your report,many ideas will pop in your head and you’ll feel the need of dividing some chapters into sub-chapters.But I would suggest you to go for it before you start writing.

The more clear your whole plan is,the easier you’ll find it to complete the report in shortest possible time.

iv)Gather Content:

The next step is to find the content.Google search,article directories,popular blogs and niche specific forums will serve this purpose very well.In the case you can afford to spend some money,buying a few related products is a good idea.Copying anything from someone else’s product is not advised but you can use that material to form your own ideas.

v)Fill In The Blanks:

You have already specified headlines and sub-headlines.You have collected enough content too.Now your job is just reduced to filling the blanks.You can easily complete a 20-30 page report in a day with decent typing speed.

If you are a slow typer then I would advise to use some voice recognition software.

Most of the new PCs come with built in voice recognition system.In the case your PC doesn’t have it ,purchasing some voice recognition software  like “Dragon Naturally Speaking” is a good idea.This tool costs around $200,but it can increase your writing speed by as much as 5  times and you’ll certainly be able to recover your investment within a few days.

6 Steps Strategy for making a Killing with ClickBank Tue, 30 Aug 2011 14:10:07 +0000 Paul Making money with ClickBank is getting harder & harder everyday, isn’t it? Life ain’t that easy. Do you know what happens when you lose a minute?

  1. 600 videos are being uploaded on YouTube
  2. 12,000 new ads posted on CraigsList
  3. 375,000 minutes of voice calls on Skype
  4. More than 96,000 Tweets
  5. More than 50 WordPress downloads
  6. 300+ New Twitter accounts
  7. 60+ new blogs & over 1,500+ Blog posts
  8. More than 70 domains are being registered
  9. 700,000 Search Queries
  10. 168 Million Emails are being sent

That’s some big numbers out there, right? In such a competitive world, you would have come across plenty of methods that claim banking with ClickBank. Unfortunately, most of you would have purchased some guides too, that might work.

There is nothing called “Becoming rich overnight” unless you’ve spent sleepless nights working on it. There are plenty of Internet Marketers out there making 5 digits every single day with ClickBank. If they all can, why not
you? All you need is a proper plan & pouring efforts consistenly. Let’s get started

Here is the simple 6 Step Strategy that would help you grow with ClickBank:

Choose a specific niche & grab a series of products to promote

You can make use of CBSurge plugin for Firefox to carry out this step effectively. You can download this FREE plugin from their official website:

You really have to pay lot of attention to this step. Choose the niche you are so passionate about. Let it be Gardening or Games or Cookery or whatever. Don’t choose the niche that you are not interested, but there are people making money out of it. They chose that ‘coz they were interested in it & hence they are successful in it now.

Write an eBook for GiveAway

Why should you do this? You need the email addresses of the people to promote the products, right? In order to grab their email addresses, you have to offer them something for FREE and VALUABLE. So, write an ebook that’s related to your niche and provide the same for free, once they drop their email address.

Don’t worry about the length of the ebook. Write down the points & elaborate the same in brief & understanding.  People are looking for information, not stories. If you think you can’t handle it, feel free to outsource.

Create a Squeeze page

Squeeze page, also known as Landing page is important for your Giveaway. If you don’t have any idea about the landing page, a simple Google search would help you out. Basically if you are strong in HTML, little knowledge about aweber services & possess sound knowledge about visitor’s point of view, you can create an amazing squeeze page.

More catchy your squeeze page, better your conversion rate. There are squeeze pages which has 5% conversion rate & there are a few which has over 75% conversion rates. Again, if you don’t want to take any risks it’s better to outsource.

Driving the Traffic IN

Once the giveaway ebook & squeeze page is ready, you have to send the laser targetted traffic to get started with the conversion. You can either choose PPC campaigns to drive the traffic to your squeeze page or announce prizes for the top referrals who bring the traffic for you.

Say, you are announcing $1,000 for the Top 3 referrals who would drive at least 10K visitors to your squeeze page. If you are promoting a product that pays you $20/sale and at 5% conversion rate, you would make thrice more than what you pay for winners.

So, you don’t have to rely on the paid traffic always. What I just said is a mere example. Let your creativity guide you.

Capturing the Leads

Capturing & following the leads is the most important part of affiliate marketing. Whole of your business is built based on your list. It is really very important to keep track on your subscribers & keep them engaged.

After grabbing the email address, you need a system to handle & keep track of all those details. Aweber is the most recommended email service and they are best in the business. Make use of the $1 trial account offered by the Aweber & the $1 will be refunded after 30 days, if you are not happy with their services.

Set Auto Responders

How auto responders can help you increasing the business? It can help you

  • To build relationship with your subscribers
  • Keep promoting your website & the brand
  • Recommend the services & products that would help solving the problems of your readers

Setting up auto responder is really easy with Aweber. Just play around or you can seek help from their customer support or make use of their video tutorials.

Following the 6 step strategy explained above & playing the game passionately and consistently there is no reason why you won’t bank with ClickBank. Good Luck!
