Dropping Names

Posted on February 19th, 2010 in Advice, Customers, News, Simple Cash Blog, Strategies | 2 Comments »

Today I was in a room with John Reese, Jeff Walker, Brad Fallon, Joe Polish, Eben Pagan, John Carlton and many other ‘notable people’ in the internet marketing world. I swear I’m not saying this to simply name drop.

I’m just setting the stage for this…

They were all in learning mode. Like little kids in 3rd grade! It was almost funny, except for the very serious focus and ‘heads down’ activities.

They were listening to someone else talk. They were talking notes, they were filling out forms and they were in little groups sharing ideas and experiences. They were planning. They were developing their strategies. Like you. Like me.

My key point is that even these folks are hungry to learn more. They are looking for new systems, new opportunities and new partners. They are human with human needs. And, they are smart about building wealth and staying focused. Education is key — investing in your business is extremely smart.

Now, what they learned — and what I learned — was extremely valuable. But, it’s a topic for another day. What matters to you is this…

There are absolutely several “levels” of business evolution. It’s next to impossible to go from making $5 per day to $500 per day in less than 30 days. Sure, it can happen, but it’s rare. Extremely rare.

Here’s what’s also rare —

Too many people make $5 per day or $10 per day, or, whatever amount. But then, rather than using their knowledge and systems… they squander the opportunity to learn and grow. They stagnate. They give up or even blow up.

Why?

Well, one big reason is simple lack of access to the right information at the right time.
quite frankly, there are not many systems that show you how to legitimately make $250-500 extra per month more with 10-12 hours of extra work per month, for example.

This is a key reason why we developed the Simple Cash Blog. You can click that link and get the free information. It’s painless… Just do it.

What I want you to know is that you can save yourself a lot of time and a lot of energy simply by investing a little time and money in the Simple Cash Blog. In relation to the value, it’s basically free.

We’ve been told it could easily be a $97 per month membership. You’ll pay a fraction of that. And you might ask, “Then why the low price?” Simple! We want you on our buyer’s list and we want to forge a long term relationship. That’s Marketing 101 and we know the lifetime value of our customers (Hint: you need to know the value of your customers).

Even if you don’t have any intention of investing, do take 26 seconds to grab the some of the 100% free information we’re handing out. Then, like the gurus I was with today, start learning… and take action.

What is PDF Rebranding?

Posted on August 16th, 2008 in Advice, Affiliate Program, Clickbank, Simple Cash Blog, Strategies | 1 Comment »

PDF RebrandingPDF rebranding is pretty simple to understand if you’re given an example to follow. I’ll do that in just a minute. First, let me explain a couple of key concepts then I’ll show you exactly how it’s done.

PDF rebranding is used by internet marketers to create viral marketing campaigns. The central idea is that someone gives away (or sells) a rebrandable PDF report which can be updated or “tagged” with an affiliate ID. Then, that rebranded report is given away or sold in an attempt to get affiliate sales.

Why Does This Work?

The product owner wins by getting people very excited by the opportunity to give away a product and make sales. The product owner will have his rebranded reports all over the place, all with links back to his main product page or membership site.

The affiliate giving away the rebranded report wins because he’s got a very nice sales tool (free rebranded report). This makes his life much easier. He just hands out the rebranded PDF like candy to his blog readers and folks on his list.

In this way, the product owner and affiliate work together to make the product go viral. That simply means that the PDFs will start showing up all over the place. Of course this doesn’t always happen since the PDFs might be buried or hidden, with people only coming from links in mailing lists.

An Example of PDF Rebranding in Action

Nothing helps people understand PDF rebranding better than a real example. I decided that the best way to make it clear was to give you a high quality report to rebrand.

Start by downloading How To Make $5,000+ Per Month With Your Own Simple Membership Site. There are three files in that .zip file: (1) The Read Me, (2) The rebranding software, and (3) The rebrandable report. Be sure to read the Read Me first. It’s very clear.

Note: Be sure to grab your Simple Cash Blog affiliate link right now. (It’s very easy. We use ClickBank.) The report has links in it back to the Simple Cash Blog, which you’ll be rebranding.

Again, the Read Me makes this very easy to understand. I’m just giving you a headstart by pointing to the Simple Cash Blog affiliate link generation page.
