Another disadvantage with Mailchimp is the homogenisation of their email templates. Because so many marketers use Mailchimp, their newsletter templates look familiar. While you can obviously customise them, they somehow always have seem to look like a Mailchimp newsletter.
Review : This is an excellent course. The instructor is very organized, and explains everything clearly and concisely. The content seems to be very effective and can be very easily put to use immediately, even if you don’t have any prior background. – Cj
You probably already thought about these keywords while making your video, but what you probably didn’t realize is that in addition to using the Google Keyword tool, you should also be looking at the YouTube Keyword Tool.
Affiliate marketing has grown quickly since its inception. The e-commerce website, viewed as a marketing toy in the early days of the Internet, became an integrated part of the overall business plan and in some cases grew to a bigger business than the existing offline business. According to one report, the total sales amount generated through affiliate networks in 2006 was £2.16 billion in the United Kingdom alone. The estimates were £1.35 billion in sales in 2005. MarketingSherpa’s research team estimated that, in 2006, affiliates worldwide earned US$6.5 billion in bounty and commissions from a variety of sources in retail, personal finance, gaming and gambling, travel, telecom, education, publishing, and forms of lead generation other than contextual advertising programs.
“I have been tinkering with selling online for just over a year. There are so many programs, services and products out there that have a lottery winning approach, “Buy this 37 dollar WordPress plugin and scoop up traffic and sales”. I bought Jim’s Proven Amazon Course several months ago because it sounded good but I never really got into the content. I saw a recent release from some online gurus selling a course on how to make money on Amazon but the course was very expensive. I went back to Jim’s course I had already purchased and started going through the material. I listened to an audio interview Jim did with two of his partners. The woman on the call said she focuses on media, books, DVDs, CDs and even VHS. I already have an Amazon account so I looked around t he house for some interesting books even some of my kids old text books and I went to the local good will and picked up some books. In less than a week I have sold 7 books and made about 319.00. I am so hooked! This from just spending a little time with Jim’s material and a few hours getting the books and uploading to Amazon.” — Mike Jansen (comment posted at JimCockrum.com)
I recently started a blog (I became an Amazon affiliate) and I just launched (a few days ago actually) my own online store. I’m familiar with blogs, ebay, etsy, etc. I have searched and searched online for information on affiliates, blogs, etc. You are a lifesaver because your blog seriously is the easiest way to understand PLUS you even GIVE us some affiliates. I’m tring LiveMocha now and I already now what I’m going to write about in my next blog (Hello Espanol). Anyway, looking forward to getting your emails for sure. Oh…question for ya…how can I add an etsy link to my blog? Not sure if it’s just a banner or an affiliate banner somehow…? I’ve seen people who make things on etsy-they have a link/banner on their site? My MAIN goal is to somehow link all my stuff together…my store…my blog…my facebooks (heck I got educated and opened an twitter account but thats slow going b/c I’m so new)…etc. PLUS advertising is so darn exspensive espec. when you are just starting out… Thanks 🙂 Cheers! Happy bloggn!
I haven’t heard of Feedblitz – just looking at their website now. Appears that they’re a Feedburner replacement specialising in RSS-to-email (sending your blog subscribers an email about latest posts). Their pricing looks a bit steep (considering Feedburner was free) – so I’d probably choose Mailchimp or Aweber over them? That way you can message up to a few thousand people free of charge.
Hmmm…not sure if I understand exactly, but do you mean the code itself shows up on your site instead of pulling the ad? And it happens for both CJ and Amazon? You might try grabbing just your affiliate URL (http://cj.com/referal/etc) and not all the img tags and stuff that are often supplied automatically. Or, if no links are working in your widgets, you might try calling your host or your theme author?? Sorry I’m not much help here!
You should focus on targeting one goal per video. Some of the most common video goals are to increase brand awareness or views, clicks, or inbound links and social shares . Depending on how you use the video in your marketing material, the goal could be to increase the open rate of an email series or improve the conversion rate on a landing page. YouTube is a great platform for growing brand awareness.
When promoting affiliate offers, just make sure you are fully aware of all the terms and conditions attached to your affiliate program. Some programs can be strict about how they allow you to promote their products. For example, some may limit you to banner ads and links only, while others will allow you to use paid advertising, but won’t allow email marketing.
Hi there, love this post! I was wondering if you have any suggestions for wordpress plugins that help you integrate links automatically, like Affiliate Ninja, for instance. I would love to hear your opinion!
search engine marketing strategies
SEO experts play up all sorts of variables, but not all variables have the same weight. Content and inbound links trump everything all the time. But, collectively, the smaller ranking factors are worth monitoring, fixing, and measuring.
Often the line between pay per click advertising and paid inclusion is debatable. Some have lobbied for any paid listings to be labeled as an advertisement, while defenders insist they are not actually ads since the webmasters do not control the content of the listing, its ranking, or even whether it is shown to any users. Another advantage of paid inclusion is that it allows site owners to specify particular schedules for crawling pages. In the general case, one has no control as to when their page will be crawled or added to a search engine index. Paid inclusion proves to be particularly useful for cases where pages are dynamically generated and frequently modified.
Keyword targeting can make all the difference revenue wise when working on SEO for an affiliate site that relies on SEO as its primary marketing method. You have vanity terms, traffic terms and then you have your “money” terms.Seeing results from … Read More

“I’m very very very happy with my first real deposit from Amazon.. I’m doing this part time. I got paid last week but today was the real deposit. I can actually say I made my money back and then some…”
When adding keywords manually, you can choose the keyword match types in the match type drop down. If you are creating a Sponsored Products campaign, you will also have the additional option of making your keyword a negative match type.
3. In your “Hi, I’m Amy” section on the right. How did you set up those internal hyperlinks. I used a text widgin to put insert my about section but I can not add any hyperlinks. Also how did you add your picture in that same section.
Note that you can become an affiliate for large companies once, and then promote any of their products. For example, you can become an affiliate with Amazon (“Amazon Associate”) once and promote any of their products.
When creating an ad, you have 5 seconds to hook the viewer in so they watch more of your video. You see what Tai Lopez does? The background is him standing in a mansion, and the first thing he says is that he’s going to give you a tour of his mansion. Then he introduces himself. And to keep you watching, he gives you a video tour of the mansion while he talks about himself and what he offers. This is great marketing that few people have done.
At the end of the day, good storytelling is the foundational element that separates the competent videos from everything else. It is also often the missing element in most online videos. Without a good story, there is nothing to build on, so the video is destined to fail.

Is it necessary to have a blog website? What if I wanted to create a straight up e-commerce site selling products from major retail outlets. A website that rewards with discounts or other special promos just for buying through our affiliate site.
And the PAC course just continues to give and give. I just felt like sharing, because I’ve not seen anyone like Jim who provides the value to his students which he does. Believe me, I have been around the block with everything from SEO, App creation, Mobile ads, PPC, affiliate websites, local marketing, article writing, the list goes on and on, and once you get on these marketers subscriber lists, they pimp you out to every affiliate program under the Sun, and on a daily basis. Not here. This guy is the real deal. Again, just wanted to express appreciation. Thanks.”
“I’ve bought a lot of courses. A LOT. Very few were less than $300. I was unaware of PAC at the time. I wish I had just started with PAC, it covers a lot of ground and would have saved me tons of money. I’m not saying there aren’t more advanced courses and strategies out there, but there’s no point in considering them if you don’t have a good foundation and for $300 you’ll be kept very busy with even a few of the courses in it.” – Holly H.
