How I made $2,000 while camping

How I made $2,000 while camping

Over the weekend, I was able to also earn a couple of grand, and that’s what this video is all about.

 
I want to take you through the process that allowed me to earn basically just under $2,000 while I was camping. Yeah, there are certain things that I already have in place and there are certain, maybe, advantages that I may have over other people, but those all came through hard work; they weren’t just thrown in my lap.
 
I want to walk you through how I was able to earn that just under $2,000 and the things that I did exactly, no bullshit, no hiding anything, and also tell you a few things that I did wrong.

 
My friend Clive released a product called Bam Bam Backlinks, which is a really cool training on how to create backlinks on Google to get your YouTube videos higher in the search engines. I have a list that is, for the large part, interested in things related to video marketing.

You can check it out here!
 
Now, the first thing’s first. Clive actually reached out to me and told me about this, but I probably would have found it anyway on MunchEye because I’d go through and I’d find a product.

 
The first thing is choosing a product that is actually good. That’s imperative if you want to do this email marketing/affiliate marketing thing longterm.
 
Because imagine how would you feel if you were on someone’s list and they promoted you something that was a scam, it didn’t work, they’re only promoting it because their friends are doing it?
 
That’s that whole thing recently with, what’s it called, Push Button Traffic, whatever it was called, that … It was a ridiculously terrible product.
 
Didn’t work. It was a complete waste of everybody’s money. Yeah, it sold a lot of money because the people do the circle jerk thing. I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night promoting that to people who are on my list or in Facebook group purely because I’d be lying to them.
 
I don’t know how people can go through life just completely lying to other people just for the sake of a few dollars. Pick a product in whatever niche you’re in.
 
Pick a product that you know is good.
 

I went through Clive’s product. He sent me a review copy, and I really, really liked it. Now, because I get into the actual what I did, I want to just look at this message that Clive put here.
 

I didn’t win the competition. I wasn’t the top seller; I was number two. The number two affiliate sent 80% less visitors than the person that won it, but I was only four sales behind. That just goes to show that you do not need a massive emails list.
 
I converted 45%, which basically means that half of the people that I sent to Clive’s sales page bought the product. So not only did I finish second in the competition, but I also got a bonus as well.
 
You can see all the proof in the video.
 
Now, you do need a list and you do need a responsive list that know, like, and trust you, but you don’t have to have a big list.
 
All these products out there and all these people out there saying, “Yeah, I got 200 people on my list, 100 people on my list yesterday” … That’s great, but they’re just vanity metrics.
 
If they don’t convert, if they don’t buy anything, what’s the point? I’d rather have one person that buys something than 1,000 people that buy nothing. That’s one thing I want to say. Don’t feel threatened by people that have big lists because … Of course a big list that converts is the best thing, but you don’t need to have a big list to convert.
 
Now, I’m not going to mention who the number one guy is or the number three guy is, but number one guy’s list is incredibly much bigger than mine.
 
It’s huge compared to what I’ve got. Still, by being number two, I was only four sales behind. It doesn’t matter. That guy could’ve probably sent out another email and then gone 20, 30, 40 sales ahead. That’s not my point. My point is the fact that with a small list, I can still finish four sales behind somebody with a massive list and convert at an insane rate.
 
What did I do to get these kind of conversions? Well, the first thing that I did after going through the product was to make a review video. This was my first mistake. I made the review video about 10 or 11 days prior to the launch because I like to get things done and ready. I don’t like rushing.
 
Also, I think people that get their products ready early: that’s a good sign, because they’re not just rushing at the last minute and not got stuff ready. How can you then go ahead and sell it a day later if it wasn’t ready the day before? I was able to do that because the review access was ready in time.
 
I made the review, yeah, 10 or 11 days … I forget what it was. I put it on YouTube.

 
For the rest, just watch the video.
 
I hope you liked this Vlog and got some value. If so, please share it.

So move forward with no worries.

I’ve used it for a while as do many Youtubers.

Here is an overview of what it does and it’s many plus points ( and one minus).

Funnel Creation for Affiliate Marketing

The money is in the list…. No it’s not, the money is in the relationship with their lists.

Bet you’ve heard these two lines trotted out on more than one occasion. And as ‘yawn yawn’ as they may be, they are kinda true…especially the 2nd one.

But too many folk struggle to build their lists.

Yet, it’s not hard at all if you follow these small steps.

And as for following, you have 2 choices.

a) Read the steps below the video

b) Watch and follow along. Please

Funnel Creation for Affiliate Marketing Over-The-Shoulder- Unedited Raw

Resources mentioned:

Aweber

Clickfunnels

Clickbank

  1. Go to any affilaite network. Find an offer you feel comfortable promoting.
  2. Ask for a review or buy it to see hat it is all about for sure.
  3. Read the sales page. Find a hook that you can lift from the sales page. Could be anything.
  4. Go yo your page builder. I use Clickfunnels.
  5. Create an opt-in page and a thank you page.
  6. On the opt-in page, keep it clutter free. Remove the ‘name’ field.
  7. Paste you headline from the sales page you lifted. Edit as necessary.
  8. Add a privacy policy, contact us and terms of use. Ensure they are clickable.
  9. On the thank you page, mention that they will get an email in their in box.
  10. Add a welcome video to brand you.
  11. Add the buy link for the product you are promoting. you may get some sales then.
  12. Create a new list inside your autoresponder.
  13. Add the first email ( welcome, free gift if offered, encourage whitelisting and ask them to respond.
  14. Create your first form
  15. Go back to your page builder and connect it with your autoresponder
  16. Proof read everything.
  17. Test the pages work
  18. Get traffic

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.

Anyhow…

website conversion optimization tips

Website Conversion Optimization Tips

Would you like to make more money from the internet and your promotions?

Then you may be interested to learn about this study by Neilsen in 2006.

They observed over 300 people use hundreds of different websites . They then produced a 355-page report  about how people read on the web, including scanning patterns.

In short, what they found has influenced some of the biggest and most famous websites in the world.

Amazon and Facebook for example.

Now compare them with most blogs ( including this one unfortunately) and what do you notice? Watch this short video to discover something that may cause you to completely change your blog layout.

Website Conversion Optimization Tips Video

So in short, people browse a website in an F shape fashion.

Facebook, Amazon et al. have their sidebars on the left.

Website Conversion Optimization Tips That You can Take….

So if you want to sell stuff, then perhaps you should try to have your advertisements/banners on the left. And I am learning that the less stuff you have, the more clicks you get.

Stuff it with junk, related posts…etc and people click less. At least from my experience. You may find it different.

You can embed an  opt-in box at the top so you don’t have to worry about pop ups.

So you can generate leads, get more clicks and if your copy is decent enough, more conversions from your content.

Copywriting tips:

Ask an obvious problem in the first sentence….

Agitate it perhaps.

Introduce a solution ( your offer) carefully.

Of course all of the above points need training and you’ll need to focus on how you write but it’s a basic start.

Traffic to Content

Once you have your site set up, you’ll need some traffic. Here are what I use:

+ YouTube (SEO + Ads)

+ Facebook Ads

+ Organic SEO ( tricky for an affilaite site though)

+ Twitter Ads

+ Reddit but only if you have some stellar stuff on your site.

+ Pinterest ( Very misunderstood but super powerful)

Hopefully you got a little value from this post on Website Conversion Optimization Tips and if so, please share, like, comment or any other goodness you can think of.

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

How to Add Captions to a Facebook Video SRT FILE

Adding captions to a Facebook video will yield much better results. But you do NOT want to use the free option that Facebook provides. You want to upload an SRT file.

How do you do that?

You get a pro to make them, add them automatically to your Youtube video and use the same SRT file and upload into Facebook directly when you upload a video.

Your Facebook Video Ads will have much better results.

Sound complicated? Not at all. Just follow the steps in the following 2 videos:
