Free Marketing Videos

Posted on March 20th, 2008 in Advice, Marketing Minesweeper, Videos | No Comments »

More videos are being created every single day. These free videos are filling up sites like YouTube. A million flowers are blooming. Millions upon millions, in fact.

Just yesterday I was looking for an old Godzilla video but I wasted about an hour and didn’t find what I wanted. It was really a waste. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It’s really easy — too easy! — to waste time on video web sites.

Now, the comments I made above certainly apply to entertainment videos. That is, a lot of time is wasted on videos that don’t really matter. I know you understand. Burning up time on YouTube is easy.

The real trouble starts when you’re working hard. You know, when you’re really looking for something special to get a job done. Or, you’re trying to get “secrets” through video. We’ve all been there.

If  you’re an internet marketer, you know that finding high quality videos in any reasonable time is a nightmare. There is so much garbage out there. Think of all those hours you waste looking for advice on SEO, Adsense, SERPs, article marketing, information product creation, Squidoo, forum marketing, making money from blogging, and so on.

How to Set Up an Autoresponder Membership

Posted on March 13th, 2008 in Advice, Customers, Free Business Model, General, Marketing Minesweeper, PLR Club, Simple, Strategies | 1 Comment »

These extensive notes are based on FreeBusinessModel.com — Where you’ll find a 100% free video on setting up an autoresponder membership. There are no strings attached. We’ll ask for your name and email only if you want to learn more advanced internet marketing techniques. (I promise.)

Quick Introduction 

Setting up an autoresponder membership web site is easy if you are familiar with common internet marketing tools and techniques. If you’re not, then you might need to invest some time to gain the required technical knowledge. Here, you’ll learn the process of combining an autoresponder with PayPal to create a membership web site.

What You’ll Need

* An autoresponder delivery service (Recommended: AWeber)
* A hosting provider for your sales page (Recommended: BlueHost)
* A PayPal account

How to Set Up and Run Your Autoresponder Membership

There are 8 steps to setting up and running an autoresponder membership:

1. Obtain content (private label rights) or create your own
2. Fill up an autoresponder with content with regular delivery planned
3. Set up a sales page to sell access to the autoresponder content
4. Create a PayPal subscription button
5. Place the PayPal button on the sales page
6. Drive traffic to the sales page (See: 31 Ways to Drive Traffic)
7. When a customer subscribes redirect them to an opt-in page
8. Deliver regular emails to customer via autoresponder

Step 1: You need content for your autoresponder. This is what will be delivered to customers by email. This could be on any topic in any niche. For example, you could regularly deliver information on “herbal medicine” to customers. This content could be private label rights (PLR) material you acquired or it could just be your own content.

Step 2: Using the PLR or your own fresh content, you’ll load up the autoresponder. This is what people are paying for on a regular basis — great content by email.

Step 3: You’ll need a sales page for your autoresponder membership site. If you’re delivering “herbal medicine” content, then your sales page will be about that topic and the benefits of getting emails on a regular basis, e.g., pre-sifted information, direct delivery of content, and easy access via email.

Step 4: You’ll head to PayPal and create a subscription payment button. Creating a PayPal button for subscriptions is relatively easy although it might take some time to navigate through PayPal the first time. The PayPal subscription button is very much like a normal PayPal button; when the customer pays they can be redirected to a web page of your choosing.

Step 5: Place your PayPal subscription button on the sales page your created. Again, when the customer pays, they’ll be sent to a pre-determined landing page. (Described in Step 7.)

Step 6: Drive traffic to your autoresponder membership site. You can use a variety of traffic techniques such as Google Pay-Per-Click or posting to blogs. (Recommended: Fast and Simple Web 2.0 Traffic System)

Step 7: When a customer pays by Paypal, you’ll redirect them to an opt-in page you set up via your autoresponder service, such as AWeber. This opt in page, hosted on your web server, is how you’ll capture email addresses and names of customers. This is how you will know where to send customers their emails. Remember, this is absolutely not spam since they just paid for this content and they are asking to get your emails on a regular basis.

Step 8: Deliver the promised content via your autoresponder. This is almost always handled automatically by your autoresponder. However, you could exert manual control over the delivery by using a broadcast to your members versus pre-determined delivery.

Additional Tips

First, take time to plan out the entire membership before taking action. Make sure that you have a good niche and solid content to work with.

Second, be sure that you have a well-designed and well-written sales page. Some people don’t fully understand “autoresponder memberships” so make the concept very clear. In essence, and autoresponder membership is a way for customers to get smart, trusted emails for a fair price.

Third, The Marketing Minesweeper is an exmaple of an autoresponder membership web site, if you are looking for one. Consider modeling your sales page after The Marketing Minesweeper, at least in terms of how the content is provided to members.

Fourth, if you need PLR content consider The Simple PLR Club. It’s a membership run by the Rhodes Brothers and it offers 3 full reports and sales letters every single month for one low price.

Start Online Home Business Opportunity

Posted on December 13th, 2007 in Advice, Marketing Minesweeper, Simple, Strategies | No Comments »

Here’s What You Asked:
“Start Online Home Business Opportunity”

It is likely that you found this page by using these words in a search engine: start online home business opportunity. Maybe I have the order wrong, but I do think I know what you’re looking for on this page…

You want to know how to start an online business that you can run from the comfort of your home. If I’m right, please keep reading. I have several ideas to share with you.

Any Online Home Business Opportunity Must Starts with Your Goals 

First, let’s consider what “start online home business opportunity” means to you. Please don’t quit your day job and don’t spend money until you have very clear goals. You must have a plan that is real. It must be concrete.

 

Tip: Write down your top 4-5 goals right now. Trying to kill debt? Trying to save for college? Trying to kill your day job? Write it down! You’ll feel good about it.

Second, starting an online business takes dedication. I strongly suggest that you tell other people what you are planning. (You have written down your goals, right?) When you tell people what you are doing, you put social pressure on yourself to get the work done. You’ll stay focused and you’ll succeed.

What Are the Biggest Business Opportunities Working at Home Online? 

The answer is all around you. Virtually anything can be turned into virtual online gold. Let’s look at some examples.

 

First, you can get started with online e-commerce by selling real products on eBay. Maybe you’ve heard this a million times. Have you actually sold anything online? If not, go for it. You’ll learn quickly what is hot and what is not. You’ll also learn the basics of selling online – trial by fire. Experience is a great teacher.

Second, start looking for a niche or market that you are passionate about. Here are some examples: pets, parenting, gardening, fitness, and clean energy. There are thousands of examples. Once you “find” your niche, start doing some research on Google. Use terms and phrases that make sense. Make notes.

Third, find forums, web sites, and blogs that talk about your niche. If you want to really understand “start online home business” this is a key step. Find people that are passionate. Spend time learning about what they need. Start thinking about products and services they need.

Finally, create the products these people need. Then, it’s time to sell. Try selling your product on eBay. You’ll have experience with it, so give it a try with a digital product. Create a little web site with a PayPal button so people can buy your product right off the web. For example, if you create an ebook or report on “dog food recipes” for your bulldog niche, then just let folks know on the forums and groups. Be careful, however. Don’t do any hard sales. Be passive about it.

Editor’s Note: You can learn how to upload files using a free FTP tool and also how to create a PayPal Buy Now button inside The Really Simple Method. 100% totally free.

Bonus tip: Give away 1-2 free reports before trying to sell directly to your niche. They will appreciate your gifts and they will reward you later on with sales for your big product.

So, we started by looking at what “start online home business opportunity” and now you should know. You have goals, you have a niche or marketing, and you know how to get started today. I just want to suggest one last thing: keep learning, never stop.

Bonus tip: Don’t be afraid to invest $15-20 on ebooks, reports and information products that will help you understand how to create products, how to improve your marketing, how to find niches, and so on. Spend a little money to invest in your education. It’ll pay high rewards.

How to Save Time

Posted on November 5th, 2007 in Advice, Marketing Minesweeper, Simple, Strategies, Videos | No Comments »

The number one way to save time is to spend money. I know that this sounds odd at first, but it absolutely works. If you’re trying to save time, fork over a few dollars and have someone else do the dirty work.

I’m going to use one of our memberships as an example…

My brother and I recently decided to help people save a lot of time. The idea is really quite simple. We’ve done a ton of work and now we’re “selling our time” which means you can get what you need without any effort.

So, what exactly are we selling? Well, we’re internet marketers. If you want to save time, simply subscribe to our Marketing Minesweeper Membership.

You ask, “How can I save time?” — One answer is the membership. We’ve gone off and sifted through every single video we could find on internet marketing. The result is a ton of top notch videos.

We send you just one video a day to help you avoid information overload. The Marketing Minesweeper Membership is meant to save you time, energy and money. It’s dirt cheap.

So, let’s recap. If you want to save time, just buy work that other people have done. The example in this blog entry is our membership. You save tons of time by spending just a little money. Instead of wasting time on YouTube and Google video hunting for great videos, we just hand them over, one day at a time. You can’t lose.

Stop asking yourself how to save time. You now have the answer: Spend a little money and let other people do all the dirty work.
