OMGoodness! After all this hard work and fussin, Chris and I have finally come to the launch week of our latest project! Now, don’t think you missed something, yet… It’s launching in 8 more days….December 14 , 2012!
I’d be lyin if I told you we weren’t a bit nevous. Nervous is an understatement. But we know it’s good. THE Best Pinterest Marketing Course on the planet!
Yes, we know it is, we have seen quite a few and believe me, NSP 2.0 is the best!
It’s been 8 months in the making and we’ve put a lot of time, sweat, head knockin and tears into this fantastic new product and guess who get’s the gold??
YOU DO!! w00t!!
Ok, Before I go any farther…..go follow me on Pinterest right here! Then we can get to the good stuff…Oh, maybe not….you might be like me and when you get on Pinterest, you are there for a few hours!! Days?? Sheesh. Let’s do that in a bit, k??
Stay with me here…
There have been so many changes at Pinterest since we started on 2.0 in the Spring of 2012 and we’ve been very diligent in researching and learning about all these changes and then…..including them in NSP 2.0! And the MOST IMPORTANT change??
Pinterest introduced business accounts in November 2012. They were so adamant about NOT promoting businesses at the beginning of the year! What a great change for us! Such a marketer’s paradise!! Not for spamming, but for promoting YOURSELF and what you have to offer for your clients!
If you don’t know WHAT Pinterest can do for your business, you need to grab onto NonStoPinterest 2.0 and DON’T LET GO!! We are also launching a membership site Pinner Circle and I am so excited about that!!
Pinner Circle is kinda like My Baby…and we are going to devour one topic a month (and I mean devour, eat it up, learn it know it and use it!!) about different aspects of Pinterest and pinning…. Like Branding, Boards, Blogging, Graphics, Contests, we also get to play on Facebook and we are so excited to bring this to you!!
NonstoPinterest 2.0 will be launched next Friday Dec 14, 2012 at 12 Noon EST (9am my time!) and will be available at a special launch price of just $14.97 and for that, I say it’s a WIN!
Leave your comment below and let me know if you are on Pinterest and how you use it to your advantage!
And don’t forget to go follow me on Pinterest right here!!
Goodness it’s been a long time since I posted on the blog! Chris Shaw and I have been working on a new membership site for ya and it’s been a bit hectic! Lots of fun, lots of work, but gonna be well worth it when it’s done!!
But Today….gotta tell ya about John Thornhills BRAND NEWSimple Traffic Solutions!!
John Thornhill has just released THE solution to your traffic problems! Now, you might be thinkin to yourself that this is just another crappy traffic product and you’ve seen it all before, blah, blah blah….and why is this different??
Because NONE of his methods involve paid traffic! Woo-freekin-hoo!!!
And John Thornhill knows how to get traffic! His websites get over 2 billion hits a year!!
Little history here…a few years ago, John did a lot of paid advertising, and I mean LOTS!! One day he logged into his Google AdWords account only to discover that he’d been banned from running any more campaigns!
DUH! Hello, Google???
Now he had already given Google a good chunk of money and they were closing him down! You’ve might have heard that this is very common with folks working in the Internet Marketing niche as we’ve seen thousands of them get ‘slapped’ over the years. You see, Google can afford to be selective with their ad program as they have huge corporations pumping billions of dollars into their bank accounts every year so they don’t need to care about what happens to ‘the little guy’.
And, they are very secretive about their algorithms and how sites are found on the internet. They’re changing them all the time, so to add to your sites traffic woes, you could spend months tweaking and testing to get them to the top of Google’s search results only to see them change their algorithm AGAIN (like the Panda and Penguin updates) and your site drops to the bottom of page 27 overnight!
These kind of changes have literally destroyed incomes overnight for those folks that based their whole business model on a site over which they have absolutely NO control!
So, John, being the resourceful kinda guy that he is, came up with some traffic methods that didn’t involve Google at all! He studied and researched traditional traffic generation, improved on it, tweaked it and perfected it.
In fact, just in the last year alone, his websites have received over 2 billion hits from 20 different traffic generation methods!! Yay!
And now he’s telling YOU all about it!! Double YAY!!
John shares how he generated every single click in his latest product, Simple Traffic Solutions. A step by step traffic generation program that can help you get all the traffic you need to your websites.
So what exactly is Simple Traffic Solutions? What’s in there? What do you get?
A ton of free traffic solutions!
John has covered everything he knows about generating traffic to his sites in over 50 separate modules. You get theory training, practical training and advanced training and there’s even a checklist for each module so you can work your way through each method step by step!!
And all the training is also delivered in various media formats so you can watch the videos on your iPad, iPhone or other digital device, as well as view it online. Have a peek in the members’ area here… my bud Chris has got it handled!
John has also given a rating to each method depending on how effective it is!! One to five stars. This makes it easy to see which methods work best and which methods don’t. This is something I’ve never seen in any other training before.
You also get a ton of PDF material including an eBook, a traffic generation mindmap and a collection of checklists that compliment the modules perfectly, well worth the cost of the product alone.
This is one of the most comprehensive traffic generating products I have ever seen! He has put a ton of work into this and it shows!
And we have even added some great traffic generating bonuses for the peeps who purchase from HERE!!
Grab it before the price goes up ‘cause why would you want to pay more???
Are y’all having a problem with your email marketing and getting your emails read and opened?
If you have a list of any size, it can be a bit difficult to get your emails opened when you are starting out. First of all you should use an email service. I use aweber.
They are cool. They get it delivered.
Now once its delivered, how do you get your subscribers to open it?
Well, that’s another story….one I am gonna tell right here.
First of all, you have to get them on your list to start with. Use a great giveaway item to entice people to get onto your list, then you want to send them really cool content that will help them out in getting started on the information you offered. I have some great giveaways right here and here and here.
My giveaway products are on making money, social media and blogging. So I send relevant emails to my list about these particular niches. I am not gonna send my wp list a list for recipes, they would think I am crazy.
Did you offer them a book or video on SEO and backlinking? Then your emails should be on SEO and backlinking.
So once you have some subscribers, you will need to send them some emails. In the FROM line of the email, please put your real name in there. I get emails from people that say Support, or FREE PLR, or Admin and I have no idea who these emails are from! Always put your name in the FROM spot. It not only lets subscribers know your name, they are more than likely to open your emails if they know who sent the email and you are also branding yourself.
Now let’s talk about the dreaded subject line….EWWW!
What are you gonna put in that subject line to make your readers want to open your email? If you are into any kind of make money online, then the people on your list are probably in to it as well and they know how this works and that email marketing is for selling things so your subject line has to rock!
So what kind of subject line shall you write? You have to put something relevant that leads to the email. You don’t want to say “Celebrity Robs A Bank!” And the email is about selling tires to your grandma. Keep it relevant to what’s inside.
One place to find some good subject lines is the trashy magazines that come out every few weeks. Yes, I know they are crazy and silly, but don’t you pick it up every now and then because you read a great headline? Those people who write those headlines are some of the highest paid copywriters in the world, so I reckon they know what they are doing when they come up with that craziness!!
Use some of the words they use in their headlines (not the aliens from outer space have exposed a leak in Britney’s Belly!) but you could use “exposed” or “leak” or something that is gonna catch your readers eye. Make a list of power words that get you results for your list. Use those words every chance you get but please make it relevant to what’s in the email. I can’t stress that enough.
Not Suzie Q’s list, YOUR List. Your power words may not work for someone else’s list, so make your own list.
Don’t be saying things like “your commissions are inside” that’s just wrong. If there are no commissions inside, don’t pretend there are.
I have had some great results with subject lines that say something along the lines of…. “So and so has done it again!” Those are the emails that get opened. Maybe they want to know who so and so is, or what they have done to warrant an email.
Now we all know, and as brutal as it sounds, we are doing the emails marketing to make money. Yep, I said it…we are all here to make money! I know a few people who have made some money off of me and I am a marketer, not just a consumer! I do want to become an expert in what I do. So I learn from other people who are doing things right in their online business. People who are making a living and know what works and what doesn’t.
Most people don’t care that you are “going to the gym, or going to pick up your mom, or just stopped to send this email before I go do something else” I mean really, you couldn’t sit down for a minute and think about what you are gonna write and if you are trying to sell me something, then at least take a minute to write an awesome email.
Copy and pasting affiliate emails is a good thing and a bad thing. Bad part is…..once again if you are trying to sell me something, at least take a minute to write something and not just copy and paste whatever the person has added to their affiliate pages. I get like 15 emails with the same subject line and copy.
Good thing is…..the emails that convert well are obviously converting well because you will get the same emails over a period of time and the big guys who are promoting the product kind of do all the testing for you. For example..if there is a product launch, let’s say….some million dollar launch and you want to get a piece of that pie…check out the leaderboard and make sure you are on the top 5 leaders’ email lists and see what emails they are sending, by day 2 they have already done their testing and are sending the best converting emails. Then you can grab that email and run with it. Be sure to add your own voice to it though!
When you are writing follow up emails, if you have an amazing widget to sell, then you need to educate your reader into buying your widget. Tell them a mini story of how it helped you or a how-to on something about the product and educate them into buying. Yes, it takes time. It takes time to learn what your readers want to know and it takes time to write the emails you are sending.
Internet marketing takes time. It’s not just a quick copy/paste life! So many people think it’s just a throw something up there and make money kind of deal, but it’s not. There is a lot to learn and it gets exciting.
Welcome to my world!!!
And the last email I really hate to get and I see a lot of marketers doing it is the one that says …”check this out!” With a link that looks like this
I know that’s a tracking link. You probably know that too. I understand people want to track what’s going on, what converts and what sells. I am all for that. What I don’t like is the ‘check this out” and they don’t tell you what you are checking out! I’m not gonna click that link! I have kids!! Who knows what’s on the other side of it? Could be the greatest widget in the world, but I will never know cause I am not gonna click that link…
I hope some of my tips have helped you in your email writing and you will find that writing emails isn’t as hard and discouraging as it looks!
Have Fun!! The Aliens Do!!
