Helpful Firefox Add-on for Marketers

The other day I found a great Firefox add-on for marketers.  It is called Shooter and you can download it at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/shooter/

Firefox addon - Shooter

This add-on is very cool and useful because it not only takes screenshots of your computer screen, it can scroll down while doing it.

An example of what I am talking about is when you want to take a screenshot of something on a website but you have to take multiple pictures because everything can’t fit on the screen at once.  Well this add-on will allow you to scroll down as far as you like.  This means that if you want to save a copy of something like a long sales page as one big long picture, you can!

This add-on is great for saving marketing sales copy so that you can analyze it later.  I remember when I used to take a ton of screenshots so that I could dissect a particular copywriter’s writing style so that I could create something similar for one of my own products.  It was a pain to do but now with Shooter it’s a breeze…

Another great use is for launching a Warrior Special Offer (WSO) on the Warrior Forum.  When you launch a WSO you can’t use more than 10 pictures, but with the help of Shooter you can use as many as you want.  You would just need to put a few breaks in the pictures to accommodate the “buy now” buttons in a few places.

This helpful Firefox add-on is really great for marketers and I’m glad that I could tell you about it.

Make Money with Pinterest Traffic

Pinterest is all the rage nowadays.  It has taken the social media scene by storm!  It has now claimed the title of being the first social media site to reach 10 million members and recently secured funding of about 100 million dollars.  It is estimated that this new website now has a net worth of about 1 billion dollars!

If you want to make money with Pinterest you need to be good at using imagery to drive traffic.  Remember the old saying, “a picture’s worth a thousand words?”  That is what you’re doing on Pinterest in order to drive traffic to the website of your choosing.

The first thing that you have to do is create a Pinterest account.  You can get one really quickly if you are invited by an existing member, but if you don’t know anyone you can just request one directly from Pinterest and they will send you an invite within a couple of days.

Once you have your account, you need to create some boards on things that interest you.  Then you post pictures to those boards by using the “Pin It” feature within your web browser once you find a good picture somewhere on the internet.

When you pin a picture from a website you have the option of changing the website link to a different website address, and therein lays a method of driving traffic on the internet.  The really powerful thing about the way to make money with Pinterest traffic is the conditioning that has taken place.  People there follow others with similar interests and click on there photos to get a closer look, which drives traffic.

Some people drive traffic with Pinterest to their own products.  Others drive traffic to affiliate products both virtual and physical.  The most important thing to remember is to be genuine.  Send traffic to offers that can really help people by giving them what they want and even perhaps what they need.

So if you are looking for a way to drive free traffic on the internet, this is one way to make money with Pinterest traffic.

Fast Cash with PLR

A great way to make fast cash with Private Label Rights (PLR) is to outsource it!  I know that doesn’t make much sense right now but keep reading and all will become clear…

The most conventional way of making money with PLR is to buy a ready-made product, set up a website and sell it.  That way works really well and there are a lot of people out there doing that and making good money.

There is only one problem with the common method that I just mentioned.  The problem is that you have to either know how to put up a website and link it to a merchant account or pay someone else that knows how to do it.  In the grand scheme of things it really isn’t that much money that we are talking about, but I have an easier way…

Drum roll please…  Become the middle-man between people that need high quality content for their websites and article writers.  If you write articles yourself, even better!  You already have one piece of the puzzle.  If not, just go to sites like Fiverr.com and find good article writers for only 5 bucks.

Be sure to test out the writers to make sure that they produce high quality articles.  It is a good idea to ask to see a sample article that they have written.  Also look for a good deal; like writers that give you a pack of 10 original articles for $5.

SPECIAL NOTE: Before you sell your pack of 50 articles, make sure they are all original by either checking them in Google or CopyScape.com.

Now you want to create a no-brainer deal!  You need to put together a package of 50 high quality niche specific articles to sell.  Price each package of 50 articles for $100 apiece and approach 100 blog and/or website owners in that niche.  Tell all of them that you are only going to sell a total of 15 copies of this articles pack.  This will make you $1,500 for only 15 sales.  Can you say cha-ching!

All you have to do at this point is to rinse and repeat the process.  With this method, fast cash with PLR couldn’t be easier…

Free Method to Make Money Tomorrow

I subscribe to a lot of email lists to stay in touch with what’s going on in the Internet Marketing industry.

Yesterday I got an email from a fellow Skype marketing buddy of mine from the Warrior Forum by the name of Fuad Tolieb.

He is a great guy from the Netherlands and I loved what he had to say and thought that it would be good to pass on to my readers.

Below is the actual email that he sent:

—–Fuad’s Email—–

There are a few things you can do in life without any risks but trying to make money online or become active in Internet Marketing in general definitely has its risks..

Knowing these risks will put you on higher ground overlooking your competitors. Why? Not because risks should act as motivation to NOT take action, but because knowing risks can give you ideas on how to plan accordingly and prevent possible failures.

One of the risks in this game is to lose money by investing in opportunities, programs, coaching or resources. This is a risk that always comes true but to some strange people like me, it is welcome at all times because it will give us more insight on what does and doesn’t work.

So what do you need to avoid at all costs? The answer is.. Never spend money on anything if you’re not sure it will make you money!

A while ago, I tried to help a cousin out because he lost his job and needed money fast. I wrote him an email with the emphasis on 1 specific method he could implement as soon as he wanted and works like a charm.

What was this method?

Well, when people come online and try to make money, they forget that the local industry of an average city produces more profits than the entire internet!

What does this mean? It means that the most leads are out there in the offline world, not online!

So here’s what the method I gave to my cousin was based on; OFFLINE MEMBERSHIPS

More specifically, offline SPORTS memberships. Memberships people have at Golf Clubs, Fishing Clubs, Gyms, Fighting clubs and many more! This could easily be expanded to memberships outside the health and sports niche.

Those kind of clubs sometimes have thousands and thousands of members all making use of their membership and trying to achieve something but need help doing it.

So here’s what I told my cousin to do in steps:

1. Go to Clickbank and match an offer with a Sports Club that offers memberships

2. Apply as an affiliate and get your affiliate link

3. Buy a new domain name and cloak/mask your affiliate link so that your new domain redirects to your affiliate link

4. Copy and paste the sales letter of the CB offer, edit the sales letter by deleting the buy buttons and replace it with your cloacked affiliate link and then print it out. Also, try to bundle it so its easy to read for people. Then, try to make a couple of simple A4 print with a few bullet points and a call to action for people to check your affiliate link.

5. Check the yellow pages (he used the Dutch version) and make a list of all the clubs in your region or city that matches your offer.

6. Do NOT call them, visit them and try to ask for the manager or the person who has authority to make decisions.

7. Tell them you have a complimentary and zero risk opportunity for them to make more money and provide their members with value. Tell them you are an associate/affiliate to a successful online program teaching XYZ which most of their members would be interested in. Tell them that all they have to do is put the sales letter bundles somewhere in their club where people can see it and hang up the A4 flyers for people to see.

Then, whenever a member goes to that affiliate link (which a LOT of people will do) and buys the program, the club gets credited for the sale (you can give them half of your commissions but just mention the amount they will earn) and you will update them with stats every week and pay them with either checks, bank wires or Paypal payments.

Then its very important that you tell them they can decide how long they want the promo material to be displayed in their club. Once they start to earn money, they will make sure to keep it on display until they believe its no longer relevant.

8. Visit as many clubs as you can for all sorts of offers and niches. Keep persistent and maintain your relationships with them. By doing this, you can update the offers and afford to invest money into making the promo material more professional

My cousin did this and kept closing deals till he had around 63 clubs in multiple cities display his promo material. He made and still makes an above average income by doing that part time.

So, if you are tight on cash and need to make money fast than I HIGHLY suggest you implement the above steps. Its not hard, it just takes consistency and determination.

You can start tomorrow if you want to and start earning the same week, sky is the limit, no scratch that, space is the limit!

I hope that his email is some good food for thought but even more importantly, some good food for taking action!

Warrior Forum Server Crash Workaround

If you know anything about Warrior Special Offers (WSOs) they can generate a lot of traffic.  Sometimes the amount of traffic that they generate is so massive that it knocks down their web servers.

Now this is not just inconvenient for the people that hang out in the Warrior Forum (WF), it is really costly for product owners and the affiliates that promote WSO products through Warrior Plus and other affiliate platforms.

Warrior Plus is the affiliate platform that affiliates use to promote a WSO, which tracks all of the sales and directs the money to the appropriate accounts.

But what if the WF servers go down after a lot of affiliates have already sent emails to their lists?  I’ll tell you what will and has happened in the past, a lot of lost money!

I was blown away when I got an email from the JV Zoo affiliate platform announcing that they have tackled this problem for the people using their system.  They have created a WSO backup system that will keep you from loosing all of the traffic and sales due to the WF going down.

JV Zoo’s system checks to see if the WF is up and running every few seconds and if their system is down it immediately switches to a backup sales page on JV Zoo’s forum.  The guys over at JV Zoo are really thinking!  Why didn’t the WF think of that?

Now as a product owner or an affiliate promoting products you no longer have to fear the WF servers going down because there is a workaround in place if you choose to use it.  It is such a great feature because it is hard enough to get people to email your promotion out and even more difficult to get them to email multiple times about the same offer.

Great Warrior Forum server crash workaround JV Zoo guys, I know that people will really appreciate it.
