Test the pages work
Now, I know that’s a simplified version. To get more sales from this simple funnel, you’ll need to learn about the pain points of the potential buyer. Use them in your email follow up, test to see if the page converts…etc
You’ll also need a RELEVANT traffic source. If you are promoting a haemorrhoid cure, then do not use Facebook. Folk are not on there talking about it.
And you’ll need to test and not quit when you don;t hit a home run with your first attempt.
If you’d like me to make this into a small course, let me know and If I have time, I may. Or I may not.

One of the biggest problems for a lot of video marketers is the ability to create pro looking videos. For me personally, I’d say this is the hardest thing. Sure there are tons of whiteboard video style makers out there but they have long learning curves and can be quite time-consuming.
Regarding video, did you know that 92% of the top Clickbank products use VSLs? VSLs ( Video Sales Letters) are immensely powerful, regardless of whether you like them or not.
I use them for my on products and am a paying user of EASY VSL 2.0. In fact, that was one of the best products I ever bought and have used it to create YouTube videos, VSLs and bonus videos to name a few.
It works on MAC and PC, is slick, and so so easy to use. Here is a VSL I made with Easy VSL 2:
All I did was write the script. My friend Lenny spoke and recorded and MP3 with Audacity ( FREE) and then I used the software to sync. If I were better at graphics, it would have looked sexier but the point it, it’s very easy to use.
Version 3 is even better with some great functions:
[+] Kinetic Animation: Create “kinetic-style” or animation typography videos using one of the 10 pre-designed kinetic themes.
[+] Import Keynote/Powerpoint: Import any existing keynote or powerpoint presentation into EasyVSL.
[+] Image Library/YouZign Integration: Now you can search over 1,000,000 royalty free images/graphics to add directly into your EasyVSL videos.
[+] Sound Effect Transitions: You can add sounds effects to your slide and text transitions to help grab the viewers attention.
[+] Speech Recognition: You don’t have to manually sync your slides with your voice. Just push the button and watch EasyVSL sync your voice with your slides.
Enhancements have been made to the features you already if you are an EASY VSL 2 user:
[+] Easy Script to Slide Creation
[+] More Slide Templates
[+] More Fonts (use your local PC/Mac fonts)
[+] Drag and Drop Existing Video Clips
[+] More Accurate Speech-to-Text Detection
[+] Additional Text-to-Speech Voices/Languages
[+] 30+ Languages to Translate Your Videos
[+] Additional Quick Key Shortcuts

How to Use YouTube Analytics to Get Better Results
In this post we’re going to look at how you can get better results with your video. We’ll use the YouTube Analytics section of your YouTube channel.
As you read the post, you can follow along with this Youtube Analytics video.
Once you’re inside of your YouTube channel, come into your Creator Studio and come down to where it says Analytics and then when you click on that, the thing you want to look for is Audience Retention.
You can get a load of really cool data inside of the Analytics
One of the most important things to find is Audience Retention.
This is really, really key because what you’re going to find out here is when people are dropping off of your videos.
This is coming up to, I think it’s a quarter of a million views and in the last few days, the last 28 days we’ve got just under 4,000 views, which is great but unfortunately the average person is only watching this for 29 percent of the total video, or one minute and 42 seconds.
What I should do is I should go into this video and maybe ten seconds before, so about one and a half minutes. Then, I should add an annotation and that should either encourage people to watch the rest of the video. Or it should have a call to action getting people off of the video because they were going to drop off anyway and perhaps offer them a free gift in exchange for an email.
That way I’ll build my list. This is a great method that you can use so that you actually know when to put your annotations on. Now of course you don’t know this until you start getting traffic to your videos.
That’s why a lot of people, I think, make mistakes and they create videos that are too long. Three minutes is an ideal length for your video, but still even then people have short attention spans and they’re not going to watch the whole thing.
Go into your analytics, check your most watched videos and see where people are dropping off and add an annotation ten seconds before that point and encourage people to perhaps opt in for a free gift or take another action. You’ll find that you’ll get much better results with your video marketing.
In today’s tutorial, I want to talk to you about the new End Screen and Annotations feature that YouTube has just taken out of beta. It’s been on certain people’s accounts for a while, but now it’s available to everybody.
Where it would normally have said Annotations, it says End Screen and Annotations.
If you want to go back to the original method of just having Annotations, you can click the Annotations link and it will take you to the old one.
What basically this means is it allows you to add stuff at the end of your video, and only the last twenty seconds. If you want to use the End Screen and Annotations method, you need to make sure that the last twenty seconds of your video is not something important you’re trying to teach.
If you’re doing an on-screen video or a screen share video, you want to make sure that for the last twenty seconds, you’re not sharing vital stuff. If it’s your face talking, a talking head video, you want to make sure that you finish saying what you got to say and maybe have just a blank canvas at the end.
YouTube End Cards – Add Element
Once you open up the option, you can click ‘add element’. There you have 4 choices, one of which is subscribe to your channel.
That will bring up the profile picture of your channel, which you can then drag and drop anywhere that you want, so let’s leave that there.
You can then add a video or a playlist, these are the two things that we’ll use most of the time. You get three choices. I would recommend best for viewer and most recent upload.
If I click most recent upload, that’s obvious what it is. Create element and it will take your most recent video and then you can drag and drop that. You can make it a little bit bigger or a little bit smaller.
Next choose best for viewer. What this does, it goes through all of your public videos and it picks out the best video for that particular viewer based on their history, which is really, really cool because it’s going to show them the most interesting one for them. Therefor, there’s a higher chance they are going to watch it, even if it’s an old one. It’s still cool. You’re only allowed four of these. Four could be a bit overkill, but if you wanted to add a link to an approved website, you could.
Note: Great for E-com stores or affiliate stuff.
For the last twenty seconds of my video, these would be clickable both on desktop and on mobile, which is very, very big because a lot of traffic on YouTube is mobile. The longer you can keep people on your channel or get them to subscribe or even direct them off of YouTube the better.
That’s it. That is the End Screen function. Hope you found this post useful.
