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.

The Key to Internet Marketing Success

If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it a thousand times that the key to success in anything that you do is to be persistent.  But I’m going to tell you that the key to Internet Marketing (IM) success is diversification.

Don’t get me wrong, you need persistence in order to get things done that you need to do but the right kind of diversification is key.  The reason is because success for everyone is different.  To some people success means monetary gains of abundance.  For others it means freedom from a job and having the independence to call their own shots.

For me IM success is diversification because my eggs are in many different baskets all producing income that gives me many choices.  Having the ability do decide what I want and have to do each day with the knowledge that if any one stream of income goes down there are other still producing.

You can have great success following just one way of making money by becoming extremely good at one thing but it leaves you vulnerable.  If something happens to that one income stream and you don’t have a way to recover quickly then you could have a catastrophic collapse in your business.  That is a sure fire way of losing everything that you have worked so hard to build.

If you don’t feel comfortable learning many different skills in order to diversify, you need to learn the really important skill of outsourcing.  This is something that you will have to learn in any event because you cannot grow without it; one person can only do so much.  When your company begins to grow, there will be many more menial tasks that will need to get done and an outsourcer is one of your best options during the early stages.

In summary, a lot of people will have their opinions as to what is the key to Internet Marketing success is for them.  For me the safest road to travel to success is diversification.

March Madness for the Warrior Forum?

To my surprise the Warrior Forum is celebrating March Madness!

If you don’t know anything about the traditional celebration of March Madness, it is for the men’s NCAA college basketball tournament.

While I love basketball, the Warrior Forum celebrating their own version of March Madness is absolutely great for Internet Marketers!

For all of the month of March the owner of Warrior Plus, Mike Lantz, announced that all of the features are FREE!  That means that there will be absolutely no fees charged for listings upfront, backend costs or even transaction charges.

What this means is that you will only be charged for your Warrior Special Offer (WSO) listing of $40, and not the additional $20 plus transaction fees for Warrior Plus.  Not only that but if you are an affiliate through Warrior Plus you won’t be charged the monthly $4 fee.

There is even more to Mike’s announcement.  There will also be changes coming to the Warrior Plus affiliate platform.  Many of the changes are what are already available at JV Zoo.

Soon Warrior Plus will be able to split payments between sellers and affiliates automatically.  As it stands right now the system alternates payments; first to the seller and then to the affiliate.  This isn’t too good for the affiliate because if only one sale is made it goes to the seller and the affiliate gets nothing for his or her effort.

Another thing is the ability for the main system to issue refunds on your behalf from your PayPal account.  This is good because people requesting refunds can do so and it can be done in a timely manner, which helps lower complaints being lodged through PayPal.

That is just the tip of the iceberg.  There will be many more features that will make everyone’s life easier and they are coming soon.

I think that March Madness for the Warrior Forum is a great idea and I hope that Mike Lantz keeps it going for many years to come.
