Build An Authority Website In TWO Minutes!

Posted September 29th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Website Development

Authority Site Builder

Every Internet marketer knows that the ONE RELIABLE way to make money online is to launch a website and drive traffic to it.

You can monetize it however you want with affiliate offers, Amazon ads, AdSense etc.

So what’s the problem?

It takes time and some considerable skills to create a website.

It also takes more effort than most people are willing to put in, especially when you look at the economics of website marketing.

Usually, the people that make big money with authority websites have multiple domains running at once. Maybe 30, 40, 50—all bringing in enough passive income so that they can kick back, relax, and watch the money flow in.

How do they do it?

They’ve found a way to automate the authority site building process—a way to turn articles into complete websites quickly and easily.

It used to be a secret—but it isn’t any more.

The program they are using is called Authority Site Builder and it allows you to build a complete authority website from a set of articles in as little as two minutes.

All you need is a group of articles and Authority Site Builder will set up a complete, custom website in just a few minutes using the same software techniques that the marketing pros use.

A Valuable Lesson From Brand Marketers by Bob Bly

Posted September 28th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

A classic 1960s ad aimed at getting marketing managers to advertise their company’s products in McGraw-Hill trade journals showed a picture of a dour-faced purchasing agent. The purchasing agent challenges the reader: “I don’t know who you are. I don’t know your company. Now, what is it you wanted to sell me?”

The increasing problem I see in much digital marketing today is pitches from companies and gurus who think I should buy their consulting services, seminar, boot camp, or training…yet I have never heard of them.

So why would I think they know anything or have any interest in what they are peddling?

Obviously we are much more likely to buy from someone we know, like, and trust than from a total stranger.

Yet so much online advertising I see today is from total strangers making the arrogant assumption that I know who they are and have an interest in them and what they are selling.

In one recent e-mail, AS, a wanna-be guru, proclaimed himself to be “the world’s #1 Internet marketing coach”.

Well, unless he is Terry Dean, Fred Gleeck, Perry Marshall, or Rich Scheffren in disguise…he is most assuredly not the world’s #1 Internet marketing coach.

The fact that I have been in info-marketing for decades but have never heard of him also puts his claim on thin ice.

In this respect, digital and direct marketers can learn a thing or two from the branding people—a group we direct marketers (me included) often view with contempt, because what they do seems to be all about image and not measurable.

But as Mary Ellen Tribby reminded her readers in a recent essay, brand advertising does have one powerful benefit: it gets the prospect to remember the product and the company selling it.

Intel and IBM made billions because they had built superior brands, not because they built superior technology. You trusted the brand. IT professionals have an old saying: “Nobody ever got fired for buying an IBM computer that didn’t work.”

Solopreneurs, self-employed professionals, consultants, speakers, and info-marketers use a variation of Madison Avenue advertising some call “personal branding”.

Personal branding is a combination of self-promotion tactics designed to boost your market’s awareness of you.

These tactics can include but are not limited to: search engine optimization, writing articles, PR, webinars, white papers, e-newsletters, case studies, blogs, special reports, books, seminars, speeches, social media and many others.

The common thread of all these tactics is the central premise of personal branding, which is this: selectively disseminating how-to information on your area of expertise to your target market of potential clients or customers.

It is in essence using content marketing to establish yourself as a recognized expert in your field.

And it does work: Many of my copywriting clients have told me they had read my books and articles or heard me speak prior to hiring me. The vast majority of my info-product buyers have read my articles in these twice-weekly e-mails, Target Marketing magazine, and other publications.

Why It’s Not OK To Curse In Your Copy by Bob Bly

Posted September 26th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

An allegedly successful Internet marketer sent me an e-mail recently, the first line of which read: “I am having a c*nt of a day.”

Yes, he used the c-word.

When I told him I was offended, he said my opinion didn’t matter, he writes what he wants, and that I am a “fat old c*nt”.

When I told this story on Facebook, I was stunned when the post generated a thread with well over 500 comments.

The most shocking thing is that some of the participants—a minority, to be sure—actually argue that it is OK to use the c-word in business communication.

To make things plain, let me state: Using the c-word in polite conversation is not acceptable. Never. This is not debatable issue. It is a fact, pure and simple.

In the U.S., a large number of your readers find the c-word to be a distatesful and degrading term.

Yes, Brits and Aussies find the c-word more acceptable. But unless you are certain your audience has no Americans, stay away from the c-word.

Some of the defenders of the c-word, the n-word, and the f-word said it is a branding strategy that helps them select the kind of rebel readers they want.

Well, a branding strategy that offends a large portion of the civilized world—and identifies you as an ill-mannered lout—is pretty darn stupid.

And when you strip away all the arguments, the bottom line is: cursing is rude and uncivil. And decent people are polite. Yes, it’s that simple.

The fact that I have to state and defend this simple rule is shocking to me and signals the possible end of western civilization as we know it.

Are you STILL treating Internet Marketing like a hobby?

Like, something you do for a bit of entertainment in the evening and at weekends.

If you are then you’re making your first and probably last fatal mistake.

It’s not entirely your fault though. Most marketers won’t talk you through the fact that they’re actually running online businesses for the simple reason that saying “Start Your Own Company Today” isn’t nearly as appealing as “Flood your bank account with cash like I did yesterday”.

So less said the better, right?

But the reality is success requires absolutely dedication.

Strategic thinking and solid (maybe even ‘hard’) work is demanded of you.

Whether you like it or not, if you want to be a real “online business owner”, you must also want to change your REALITY.

So here’s a fantastic opportunity that you can start sinking your teeth into today…

You feel something brush by your leg. Something sticky.

Before you can even process another thought 8 spongy tentacles have wrapped themselves around your ankle and started pulling you deeper in the dark and foreboding sea.

No, this isn’t a Lovecraftian horror scene. THIS is what YOU are about to do to your website visitors!

Newbie freelance copywriter MP recently asked me for feedback on his new website.

When I told him what to do, he defended the very things I said did not work on his site my telling me, “Well, my son thinks I should try it this way.”

When I asked, he shared that his son is 28-years-old. I have been a freelance copywriter for 7 years longer than his son has lived.

“Who do you think knows more about marketing freelance copywriting services—me or your son?” I asked MP, who of course said it is me.

By the way, this scenario happens multiple times each month and it is the primary reason why I do not offer mentoring or coaching services.

It is also why I am close to shutting down the free help I so readily give to copywriters, Internet marketers, and other entrepreneurs online.

My question to MP, if he is reading this, and to others who ask for free advice and then argue when they get it, is this: Why would you ask my opinion, which normally sells for $500 an hour, and then, when I am nice enough to give it free, instead of thanking me, start to argue with me?

Presumably, you asked because you correctly recognize that I know more about the topic than you do—why else would you ask me in the first place?

The reason I know a bit more than you is not because I am smarter, but because I have more experience.

A rule of thumb to which of course there are numerous exceptions says that those with more experience in X know more about it than those with little or no experience, right?

Louis CK has a wise and amusing take on this notion.

MP’s son is a kid and not a copywriter. MP knows that I have been a successful copywriter for 35 years. So why would he turn to MP Jr. for a second opinion on my advice?

Here is the possible explanation: In over 3 decades of helping people, I have learned that many people who say they want advice actually want something else: they want confirmation of what they already believe.

As long as your advice is in line with what they already are doing or want to do, they thank you.

But if your advice is in opposition to their belief or plan, they argue and defend their position.

Here’s why I told MP to ignore MP Jr. and listen to me only…

If MP was a paying client, I would be willing to entertain the debate for my $500 an hour rate.

After all, my clients are paying me a lot of money, are gambling a lot more money on their marketing, and want to be confident they are taking the right path.

But if you are not paying me for my time, and I am generous enough to give some of it away to you, I am going to want to keep it short for obvious reasons: I have a lot of other things I could be doing in that time instead, all of which make me money.

Fair? Reasonable?

To me, yes. And to MP, who thanked me, fair to him too.

The Millionaire’s BrainHow does a millionaire think? To find the answer, we need to begin from the brain. Our mindset is the great canvas on which we work the magic of wealthy thinking. It is by repeatedly telling the brain to do specific things or inculcate particular behaviors, will a positive belief be wired into our brain and manifests automatically into our action.

There is no second way about it.

A strong and unwavering belief aligns with the powerful law of attraction and hands you the keys to infinite wealth. It is really that simple.

But mere theory is cheap. In The Millionaire’s Brain, there are exercises throughout the e-book to reinforce your understanding, like affirmations, meditations, and many other little things you can implement effectively in your daily routine.

One of the bonuses, The Money Code, is rather intriguing because it focuses on financial success. Now it can be rather difficult for a layman to focus on financial details simply due to the technical jargon. But The Money Code is all straightforward and easy to understand on the concepts it seeks to code into the brain.

The other bonus is The Millionaire Mindset Suite. This is a package of brainwave entrainment audios which eases the mind and provides meditative music as you contemplate your mindset, its creation and affirmation to work to your favor.

I’ve read through countless self-help books in my time and I have to say that The Millionaire’s Brain is quite possibly one of the best, if not the best, personal success development product out there.

It is unbelievably comprehensive and in-depth, yet the concepts taught are so easy to understand and can be readily put into practice and action.

You’d be hard pressed to find any success products with such a reasonable pricing, AND with such a crystal-clear promise of a millionaire’s destiny.

Hence, I highly recommend Winter and Alvin’s The Millionaire’s Brain to you if you are determined about seeking the millionaire’s, or to be even more ambitious, the billionaire’s, success in your life!

Everyone Writes, But Should They? by Bob Bly

Posted September 22nd, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Content Publishing

My colleague Michael Stelzner recently did a podcast with a woman, AH, who wrote a forthcoming book called “Everyone Writes”.

AH is right: everyone writes. But I have always wondered whether everyone should write. And I have come to believe that they should not.

Reason: In the good old days, just because you wrote something didn’t mean it would be published. In fact, likely, it would not.

To get published, you had to convince a publishing house to buy your book—or a newspaper or magazine editor to print your article or your letter-to-the-editor…and most people were not able to do this easily. So what got published was vetted by professionals—and the quality reflected that editorial guidance.

But today, in the digital era, anything that anyone writes can be and often is instantly published to the Internet where theoretically millions of people can read it—and at least a
few people, if only just your Facebook friends or Twitter followers, almost certainly will.

Some people see this “everyone writes (and publishes)” phenomenon as a wonderfully liberating new age in human communication.

To me, it is the end of western civilization as we know it—and the death of literacy—and the heralding of an unceasing age of what I see as endless “content pollution”.

Content pollution is everyone publishing every thought they have, and almost everything that happens to them, without the benefit of an editor or publisher to filter what goes out into the ether.

I define the job of the editor as “quality control for written communication”. Without editors, which the Internet has largely removed from the equation, the quality of published writing has fallen to a new low—not an easy accomplishment.

Example: Facebook posts featuring a picture of what the person has just eaten for breakfast. The amazing thing is that some readers actually seem interested!

The ease of publishing blogs, online newsletters, online articles, posts, and the like has caused amateur writing to flourish. And that’s bad news for professionals: it’s difficult to command a living wage for something thousands or even millions of people are happy to do for free, even if you are ostensibly better at it.

People ask me why I take the old-school stance of preferring traditional book publishing with NYC publishers to self-publishing on Amazon with Kindle or on a website.

The main reason is this: with traditional book publishing, you know that at least one person—the editor at the publishing house—thought highly enough of the work to pay for it. That’s a quality control self-publishing is sadly lacking.

Normally at this point in my essay I suggest solutions or give tips for profiting from the situation.

But I don’t really have a solution to content pollution. People feel compelled to express their thoughts, and thanks to the Internet, can do so at any time—and are assured of at least some readers taking note.

There is nothing I can do to change the human compulsion to write and publish. I just wish more people who feel this compulsion would produce content at a higher level—that is, writing actually worth reading—and filter what they put on the web. Don’t you?

The Power Of Free

Posted September 21st, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

It has been proven time and time again that the word “free” turns more prospects into customers—for example, offering a free bonus gift when the prospect buys. If you are building a list or simply want a prospect to take a first action, offering a valuable free report is often highly successful. Note: Dick Benson wrote this in 1991 and it is every bit as true today.

Print books are not dead yet!

A study conducted at the University of Stavanger found that 10th grade students had better comprehension when reading print books than when reading books on a computer screen.

Researchers concluded that reading print texts improve comprehension because of the greater ease of leafing back and forth between different sections of the book.

Get more attendees for your webinars.

Posted September 19th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

Most of us promote our webinars heavily to our house e-lists, but Rally Point Webinars suggest using 3 additional lists: lists of affiliate partners, rented e-lists, and best of all, the e-lists of the speakers you are featuring in your webinars.

If the webinar is a free event, point out to your speaker what a great benefit it is to offer to her valued subscribers. If there is a product up-sell or a fee for the event, give the speaker an affiliate commission on all sales made.

Have you ever tried to make your own videos?

I have. And I have to say…It sucks. Just being honest.

There is so much to deal with and think about!

Should I be on camera or just do a powerpoint-style presentation?

How do I set up my lighting?

Do I have the right equipment?

What do I say?

What sort of information should I give?

Should I be cool, calm, and educational, or funny and pitch a little?

How long should my videos be?

And that doesn’t even get into the whole “tech” side of knowing how to use video editing software, getting graphics made, intros, outros, and all that.

Yeesh.

I don’t know about you, but I got into this whole Internet marketing game to make money being a *marketer*.

Not to try and be some sort of professional video creator.

Heck with all that.

Especially when Bari has a totally “Done For You” solution with Azon Video Vault.

Azon Video Vault

He has picked all the right products in the “golden niche” of coffee (you know…the one where people would rather gain 10 pounds than give up?).

He has already reviewed each product for you.

He has already tested the different types of video reviews.

Most importantly, he already had the review videos made! He had to shell out a cool $500…for EACH VIDEO.

But if you hurry up and click here, you’ll get ‘em for LESS THAN A BUCK EACH.

$500 each or <$1 each…which would you rather pay?

LOL…exactly.

Then you don’t have to worry about being a “video guy”…all you have to do is market them right and watch the $$$ flow in…

What would it feel like if you had a consistent $3000/month coming in from Amazon?

Bari’s videos could potentially have you doing that…in as little as TWO WEEKS.

Isn’t that worth less than a buck per video?

Good thing for both you and I that Bari already has that stuff figured out for you so all you have to do is use the videos he has already had made.

3 ways to get more clients with better follow-up.

Posted September 18th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

Business coach Mara Glazer says everyone in a client-based service business should spend 15 minutes a day doing the following 3 activities:

1. Pick up the phone, and call someone you met at an event but haven’t connected with offline quite yet.

2. Call an old lead that never turned into a client to see how they are progressing (or not progressing) without you.

3. Call someone you maybe never met before but that you’ve wanted to work with.

“I know for many it’s uncomfortable, but it works,” says Mara. Her advice: Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, pick up that phone, and finally follow-up so you can start watching your client enrollment (and the number in your bank account) begin to rise.
