This Just In…

Good Friday Morning to You!

I just wanted to give you a quick update about Instant Splash, a resource on my Resources page.  (Yes, believe it or not, that’s where it’s located.  Go figure…)

What I wanted to tell you is that the webmaster, Carl Bailey, just added a feature where members can create their own customized Splash or Capture pages.  Carl is awesome, as he is always tweaking and improving Instant Splash.  It’s free to join, but you can upgrade for $9.95 a month, and earn $5.00 each month for everyone who sees that same value.  Even with my less than genius math skills, I can see that I’m earning in excess of 50% commission.

Instant Splash is really cool because everyone advertising on the Internet SHOULD be using a capture page to build their list.  As it stands, not only am I using this service at no cost, but I’m in profit.  Heck, Carl even GUARANTEES a profit within 72 hours… see details inside.

Here is a sample of a capture page I created using the original version (still in operation):

Here is a sample of a Splash Page that Carl has created to promote the New Generation version:

Instant Splash has my highest recommendation.  You really NEED Instant Splash because you really MUST build your list!

It’s My Mantra…It Should Be Yours, Too!

What’s the number one thing that all of us want and need?

Right… World Peace.

But besides that, if you have a website, an online business, or a blog, what do you want and need to be successful? It’s TRAFFIC!

No matter how beautiful your website design, no matter how awesome your product is, or how witty your writings, if no one sees them, it’s all for naught. So your main focus should be driving traffic to your site.

There are many ways of doing that.  There are more traffic exchanges, safelists, and text ad exchanges online than you can shake a stick at.  How do you know where to advertise? I use Traffic Hoopla as a resource that shows how the various advertising sources rank.  Traffic Hoopla does independent tracking and ranks them on how they actually perform. It’s a free resource.

The other thing you need to do is track your advertising. You always need to test everything you do.  Sometimes just changing a word can change your results; sometimes a color change makes a difference.  You don’t want to spend money on ads and memberships with an ad campaign that isn’t getting the results you want.  So, always be vigilant about the advertising you are doing. The tool that I use and absolutely LOVE is a little program called Trac-Ads. It’s not a free program, but your monthly business expense is only $4.99 and it pays a 40% commission.

One other thing that I may have mentioned before but it does bear repeating.  If you are going to use traffic exchanges, in particular, you MUST use splash pages. The sites rotate sometimes as quickly as 6 seconds.  So having anything in there with lots of verbiage or a video is just useless.  You only have seconds to catch the surfers attention.  Don’t blow it!  My favorite tool to use for making splash pages is Instant Splash.  It’s a free resource, also.

The last thing today is something that I consider my “mantra”.  It’s…Build Your List! No matter what you do, your primary focus should be building your list.  Remember… BUILD YOUR LIST!

Here are the links for the three resources I mentioned above and a bonus free report, “Insiders Guide” to using ad exchanges:

Tools You Need For Business Success

The first thing you need is an autoresponder.

There are any number of autoresponders out on the market. My choice is TrafficWave.

Here’s why… most autoresponders charge you more, the more your list grows. TrafficWave is only $17.95 monthly, no matter how large your list grows. No matter how many campaigns, no matter how many subscribers, no matter how many messages, no matter how many capture pages, no matter, no matter, no matter….one price…$17.95.

The other really neat thing about TrafficWave is the affiliate program. Most of the other autoresponders have affiliate programs that pay from 1 – 3 levels. TrafficWave pays 10…count ’em TEN…levels. Of course, please keep in mind that TrafficWave, first and foremost, is a tool you need to effectively run a business, even though it can become another income stream.

With TrafficWave, we have training webinars and videos. And even better, I personally provide real time support and training. In addition to the training that some of the other leaders in TrafficWave provide, I have my own webroom. There, we can meet one-on-one. I can share my screen so that you can watch how something is done. And I can watch as you set things up to guide you step by step.

Here’s my link:

I’ll share some other tools that I find useful as we go along.

Go forth and PROSPER!
