Can you really make money as an affiliate marketeer?

  As an example an affiliate marketer, you promote a service sharing “your” unique link. In return, you get paid when someone signs up via that link. The amount you get paid, whether one-off or recurring and so on, will vary depending on the affiliate offer.

You don’t even need to be a paying member yourself, but if you are, two affiliate sign-ups and you’re getting the service for free 😉 So what are the pros and cons of promoting service [...]

If we all hate popups, why do we have to consider them?

You hate them, I hate them, so why do they exist? Because they have been proven to work (sorry). Many visitors will be interested in what you are selling, but perhaps not quite enough to buy. Or perhaps they don’t “get” your landing page. A popup that appears when they go to leave (move their mouse off the screen) giving a final reminder or convincer (perhaps an offer?) to help them decide. Never use traditional pop-ups! The operating system based popups that used to be used, are hated by search engines and bad user experience. Make your popup part of [...]

Why you need to understand the 5 Stages of Customer Awareness in order to sell

Why you need to understand the 5 Stages of Customer Awareness in order to sell Legendary copywriter Eugene Schwartz wrote a book. It’s now out of print. But you can pick up a copy on Amazon for about £800 – when available! A key component of selling, according to Schwartz, is understanding how aware your target audience is of your offer. The good news is this: it’s not your responsibility to create desire when you’re promoting your business. Not at all. In fact, desire cannot be created (unless you have squillions of $$$ to create it). But awareness of a [...]

How You Should Structure Your Webinar For Maximum Success

  There’s a major myth out there that webinars are complex, time-consuming and expensive to create. It simply isn’t true. Remember this sentence: Webinars That Work = The right Presentation on the right Platform for the right People. If you’re not going to read on, my one take away is this. Join and experience as many webinars as possible. Learn from them, what works, what they do, when they mess up, when they lose your attention. The more you experience, the more patterns (as discussed below) will become clear. If you follow that formula, you’ll create online presentations and webinars [...]
