“For this month; December 1st to today the 13th we have sold $111,808.24. By the time this day is over that will increase. That is over $8,600.00 per day in sales on average. I was wondering if Jim might want a copy of the screen shot to show his prospective students what the possibilities are. Also, our year to date sales are $966,575.72. We will easily exceed our million dollar goal for the year. He might want a copy of that screen shot for the same reason. If so, just let me know. Happy Holidays!”
TIP: New content also is a way to ensure that one page isn’t vying for too many keyword phrases. If you try to optimize too many keywords on a page, you risk hurting the rankings your page already achieved. If I see a few good words rank in the top 10 positions, I’m satisfied.
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.
Since then, Mailchimp have made a lot of changes. While I still personally prefer GetResponse, Mailchimp’s user interface is very well-designed and stupidly easy to use. In addition to this, their functionality has actually become quite powerful.
Search engine marketing is the practice of marketing a business using paid advertisements that appear on search engine results pages (or SERPs). Advertisers bid on keywords that users of services such as Google and Bing might enter when looking for certain products or services, which gives the advertiser the opportunity for their ads to appear alongside results for those search queries.
Loved reading this! Which of these would you recommend so that I could set myself reminders on certain clients so that I can follow up with them in the future? I feel like I am doing a lot of extra steps that I might not have to do if I was using an actual marketing software. I am in the very beginning stages of getting my business out there and I would like to follow up with potential clients down the road with an email… is this a possibility or should I just keep using my excel spreadsheet!?
When items go out of stock, Product Display Ads are paused. Once the item is back in stock, the campaign will go back to a running state, as long as this happens within the set campaign flight. Note that there could be a delay of up to 4 hours for this to happen.
In terms of delivery rates, I know there are websites like SenderScore, which provide some information on delivery rates, but it’s good to remember that those numbers are never static. If a company like Infusionsoft upgraded their servers, or changed the IP address that they send mail from, the stats would immediately become outdated.

Once your hosting is set up, you need to install a content management system (CMS) for your site. We recommend WordPress because it is easy to use and a beginner (like you!) can quite quickly figure out how it works. Most good hosting providers will have a one-click install option for WordPress, which means it will only take you a couple of minutes and you will have WordPress installed on your site.
Starting in May 2017, YouTube will no longer allow users to add annotations to their videos. Instead, they are encouraging users to incorporate cards and end screens in their videos to poll viewers, link to external sites, or direct people to other videos. Thankfully, cards and end screens are as easy to add as annotations. Cards are small, rectangular notifications that appear in the top, right-hand corner of both desktop and mobile screens. You can include up to five cards per video, but if you’re including multiple cards, be sure to space them out evenly to give viewers time to take the desired action.
Affiliate marketing is frequently overlooked by advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and web site syndication capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers’ marketing strategies.

Good thing done by your side, But according to my opinion we should use paid email marketing software rather than using free software because in paid email services we are free to do anything, but in free email marketing software there are limitation which bound us to do anything.
If your video isn’t funny, or shocking, or scary, or extremely informative and full of personality, the effort of marketing and promotion will be fruitless. Focus on marketing only after you’ve created something worth marketing, otherwise it’s just a ton of wasted effort.
ActiveCampaign comes with a beautiful email template editor and mobile friendly signup forms. It allows you to segment contacts based on their actions, location, behavior, and social data. It can also fetch additional data about your contacts using only their email address.
In-stream ads refer to ads that play within a YouTube video itself. TrueView in-stream ads play before a viewer watches the video they’ve selected on YouTube. These ads can be customized with different overlay text and CTAs and viewers usually have the option to skip the ad after watching the first five seconds. In addition to the pre-roll in-stream ads that play before the video, there are also mid-roll video ads that appear midway through YouTube videos that are 10 minutes or longer.
How much you bid depends on the business goals for your campaign. The minimum CPC bid is $0.02, but actual bids can be much higher, depending on the category you advertise in and the keywords you choose to target. We recommend setting CPC bids to the maximum you are willing to pay for a click. Keep in mind that the most popular keywords likely have above average CPC bids. The average CPC bids by category for Sponsored Products are available here(Sign-in Required).

In phrase match, the shopper’s search term must contain the exact phrase or sequence of words or their variations. It is more restrictive than broad match, targets more specific audiences, and will generally result in more relevant placements for an ad.
The topic you choose must have enough depth that you can create a lot of content for it. This is important for building an authoritative site, for search engine optimization, and most importantly, for the end user. If you don’t have enough content about a topic, you’re not going to be taken very seriously as an authority on the topic and it’s unlikely you can convince someone to make a purchase from you.
Before you start filming, you need to decide what type of video would help you achieve your goal. In a recent article from the Huffington Post, companies seeing the highest rates of success on YouTube ranked different types of videos by their level of importance and effectiveness. Before you start thinking of ideas, filming, and editing your video, consider this list of video types.
“Having been a Power Seller on eBay for 9 years I can see how PAC will be a welcomed additional income stream. The information for this course is ‘first class’ and it is going to be mostly hands-free so all I have to do is source products (which is the easy and fun part.) Thanks Jim, for another ‘Great Course’ – they are always a Winner!!” — Wayne Stanila

Next up, you need to build a website! I thought this would be extremely confusing and difficult, but it really wasn’t. WordPress and similar sites makes it super simple for anyone to build a quality website.
You can put up banners on your site, to promote your affiliate offers. Most affiliate programs will usually provide their own creatives when you sign up for their offers. All you have to do is insert the banner on a highly trafficked page (your affiliate tracking is usually embedded within the code). Banner ads in the right locations can do a great job of driving sales.
Obviously, what an affiliate says he earns does not always correlate to what he actually earns, but it says a lot about the competence and/or the bluster of these affiliates in that almost 20% reported over $1 Million per year profit.

“Two things to look at is the money back guaranteed and that scams and crap products don’t have Facebook groups as large and as active as this one. I hesitated at the price at first but eventually took the leap. PAC isn’t just about Amazon it’s tools you can use outside of Amazon and in marketing your self and product. PAC doesn’t promise, guarantee, or sell you high price gimmicks that will allow you to retire tomorrow. If you take the time put in the effort get involved in this community ask questions your success will follow. I’ve done 50k in sales since January, and am now writing a book that Jim’s marketing skills and techniques will help make me sales. Go with the payment plan if the price is to high. I honestly didn’t think I’d get anything out of it and all I saw was a sales page. I got active a little in this group and found that proof is in the following of the group. Jim isn’t just some b.s sales guy he wants you to succeed.” – Brian S.
Websites consisting mostly of affiliate links have previously held a negative reputation for underdelivering quality content. In 2005 there were active changes made by Google, where certain websites were labeled as “thin affiliates”. Such websites were either removed from Google’s index or were relocated within the results page (i.e., moved from the top-most results to a lower position). To avoid this categorization, affiliate marketer webmasters must create quality content on their websites that distinguishes their work from the work of spammers or banner farms, which only contain links leading to merchant sites.

“Sent in my first two shipments Friday morning and by 5pm I had sold 2 items. My 2nd box of new items went live on Saturday morning and on Sunday evening I made a sale. I was overjoyed with this because I had actually sold something that I had sourced which gave me confidence in the PAC business model. I am really hyped up about PAC now – in fact this morning I unsubscribed from loads of other Internet Marketing lists so that I can focus on this one business plan. Massive thanks to Jim, the team and everyone else here – I am loving this place and have a great feeling about the future.” — robbiec, on PAC discussion forum
Fill your website with content that will be useful to the people who are interested in your niche, and place your affiliate links throughout in the most relevant places. That way when someone interested in your content clicks your link, they go to a sales page for a product that they might also be interested in, and if they buy it you get a commission!
Aside from making your hearing-impaired and international viewers happy, this also gives additional content for the GoogleBot to index when they’re trying to determine which videos to rank into the searches.
If you aren’t a seasoned pro, you probably will pass this platform over, however, as they require a minimum of 2,500 contacts to start. It’s also the priciest of the bunch at $49 a month for the Pro Plan. If you’re going to use all its extra features, the fee is well worth it in my opinion.
After helping Small Biz’s and Non-Profits with Contact Contact, and then migrating them to MailChimp. Gonna have to disagree with #1. CC is only good if you have lots of resources (money) to gain. Way too complicated and unreliable for SMBs.
Did you know that the top listing in Google’s organic search results gets an average of 34% of the clicks? The second gets around 20%. The third gets 13%… That means all the rest of the results on page one (paid and organic) fight over the remaining 16%. The paid results only get about 5% of the traffic — it’s a horrible affliction referred to as “ad blindness.”
As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
The second con is that ActiveCampaign currently doesn’t allow you to A/B test different emails in an automation sequence. Although this is something that they’re going to be releasing shortly (I cannot wait).
“I will also let you know that the Proven Amazon Course played a role in our success as well. Some of the ideas combines with our own experiences and expertise from other industries have given us the ability to grow significantly. This is only our (my wife and I) second year doing this, and our projections put us at about $2 million in sales this year.
You put a CPA ad on your site. A reader clicks on it and is asked to complete some sort of action such as purchasing a product, signing up for a newsletter, providing an email address, printing a coupon or subscribing to something. You get paid when the reader completes the required action.
