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.

Follow your passion…NOT!

Posted September 16th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

According to an article in Psychology Today, following your passion when choosing a career or business often leads to the poorhouse.

That’s because most people’s passions lie in mostly creative outlets (e.g., writing), worthy causes (e.g., the environment), entertainment (e.g., movies), or glitz (e.g., decorating).

As a result, the number of people pursuing these interests is overwhelming, so many companies in these areas pay employees poorly, and entrepreneurs in these niches are pressured to lower prices because of too many competitors.

If you use WordPress and you’d like to grow your online business, there’s something you need to see today.

There are 2 things here that are really important. The first is about landing pages.

A landing page is basically a page that has one and only one purpose: to convert as many visitors as possible into subscribers for your e-mail list or customers for your business.

Ideally, it’s a focused, completely distraction-free page that’s designed to increase conversions as much as possible, so you get the most out of any traffic that hits this page.

And here’s a plugin that lets you create pages just like that, in minutes (if not seconds).

The second important thing is the “2-step” opt-in process. You may have heard about this in the past few months: studies have shown that a 2-step process can increase the conversion rate significantly.

Here’s how it works: instead of presenting your visitor with a page that has a visible opt-in form on it, you show them a page with just a button. Once they click the button, an opt-in form instantly appears (no page reloads) and only then do you ask them for the e-mail address.

In some cases, just switching from the “old” 1-step opt-in process to a 2-step process can make your mailing list grow faster, instantly.

And this same plugin is also the best 2-step opt-in plugin I’ve ever seen.

Now, please keep in mind that this offer is time-sensitive. Go here now and see for yourself.

How to use fear in your marketing

Posted September 15th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Copywriting

The two primary motivators of human behavior are (1) to gain reward and (2) to avoid punishment. Naturally, both work well in copy when rendered correctly.

According to Professor Kim Witte, to use fear effectively, your copy must include 3 elements, in this order:

1. First, the threat has to be moderate or severe. Make it significant and vivid.

2. Next, the reader has to feel he is personally at risk.

3. Third, the reader must believe that preventative action implemented with your product or service is simple and easy.

2. Add a graphic highlighting a free trial offer for your product at the top of the sidebar and the end of the posts.

3. Have a contact form in your sidebar to inquire about your services, and a graphic at the end of your posts that invites visitors to find out how you can help them with the topic of the post.

[WSO] How To Build Your First E-Mail List

Posted September 13th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under List Building

Have you ever heard “the money is in the list”?

Well it’s true.

The easiest, fastest and most reliable way to make long-term profits on the internet is to build a targeted e-mail list that knows, likes and trusts you.

But for many people building an e-mail list is very challenging. However, my friend Reed Floren has been building his own e-mail lists for 8 years and he’s uncovered a lot of secrets along the way.

Reed has decided to reveal a bit of his vast array of list-building strategies on a Warrior Special Offer and it is selling FAST!

Have you ever wanted to have a business that allowed you to:

* Have geographic freedom?
* Have time freedom and make your own schedule?
* Create money on demand?
* Even bring in money while you are sleeping or spending time with family and friends having fun?
* Achieve financial freedom?

Having a list of prospects and customers is still a fundamental building block of any online/offline businesses. Grab your copy of “How To Build Your First E-Mail List” now.

Recently I asked BM, a marketing consultant, whether he was working on the new book he had told me months ago he was planning to write.

He replied that he was struggling with the question of whether to move forward with it.

“The the world does not need another marketing book,” he e-mailed me, sounding a bit down and dejected.

My first reaction was that BM is right: the world does not need another marketing book.

A number of my readers send me their new marketing books without asking whether I want them. Note: If you were thinking of doing so, please do not.

And my initial reaction is usually that the book should never have been written or published in the first place.

Most of the books are a rehash of what has already been written about a zillion times before.

But when I drill deeper into thinking about marketing books, my viewpoint begins change.

Why? For starters, even if the material has been covered elsewhere, many readers still need to hear it again.

If they didn’t, their marketing would be performing a lot better than it is right now.

Second, the authors, whether business owners or consultants, have conducted and seen the results of many marketing tests, and in doing so may have picked up some learning that you and I can benefit from.

I have been a copywriter for 35 years, and to my amazement, I still learn new techniques and tips every week that help me write better copy and get better results. And the only way you can learn them from me is to read my books and articles or attend my talks.

Yes, 95% of what is in these marketing books may have been written about before. But there’s nothing wrong with that, given that we read largely for reinforcement—to master the principles and make them ingrained in our brains.

If we could truly learn all we need from one volume, there would only be a single self-help book sold at Barnes & Noble.

And, as pointed out by many people wiser than I, if you get just one good idea from a marketing book, it can pay back your entire investment in buying and reading the book 10X over or more the very first time you use it.

So my advice to BM is: if you feel a strong desire to write a marketing book, and you think what you have to say is valuable or fresh, or both, then by all means do it.

At best, you will create something that brings genuine value to your readers—value beyond what they paid for.

At worst, you will have enhanced your reputation by being the author of a published book.

I close with what I think is a relevant story…

About 30 pages into the writing of his first published novel “Carrie”, Stephen King became so despondent he threw the pages into the trash.

The novel would never have seen the light of day had his wife Tabitha not rescued the manuscript from the waste bin and encouraged him to finish the book.

Millions of readers and the King family are glad he did, right?

Bob Bly is the author of “World’s Best Copywriting Secrets” and has written copy for more than 100 companies including IBM, Boardroom, Medical Economics and AT&T. He is the author of more than 75 books and a columnist for Target Marketing, Early To Rise and The Writer. McGraw-Hill calls him “America’s top copywriter”.

So how long do you think it would take you to set up a complete product of your own, complete with absolutely EVERYTHING you need, ready to start making sales and generating subscribers for LIFE?

Well usually, this amount of work takes people days, weeks, even MONTHS! So most people just don’t have the time to do this…

HOWEVER…A brand new product that’s just launched turns all that completely on it’s head, and as the name “60 Minute Reseller” suggests you can do EVERYTHING in LESS THAN 60 MINUTES!

Yes, in “60 Minute Reseller” these guys show you how to take a great reseller product, edit the content, change the graphics, structure your entire site, create a sales funnel, create a complete affiliates’ page with copy-and-paste fields for affiliates, create affiliate contests, create a targeted exit page and initiate it from your sales page, and also add multiple list building elements.

And they do all that in front of your very eyes in UNDER 60 MINUTES!

They don’t just explain what you need to do, they actually physically SHOW you and they also show you how they earned $1,240.36 for LESS THAN 60 MINUTES WORK.

They have included a countdown timer in the video training, so you can physically see it counting down from 60 minutes, as they show you everything you need to do.

In LESS than 60 minutes you can have your very own product online, with a complete sales funnel, making sales and generating subscribers for LIFE!

PLUS, if you grab this RIGHT NOW, you can get all this ‘priceless’ training for just a few dollars.

Check out the video on this page to find out more. But remember, the MASSIVE DISCOUNT and ‘PRICE FREEZE’ is only available for the next few days ONLY, grab it now while you can for just a few bucks.

In my last essay, I complained about an association that asked me to speak for free. They would not cover my expenses. And the worst offense: they even wanted me to pay to attend my own talk!

Although most of my subscribers agreed that this was a raw deal, a couple of you suggested I could make it pay off by selling my services, my books, or both during my talk.

Well, this doesn’t work for me, because I will not, under any circumstances, pitch my products or services from the platform.

Yes, I am aware many speakers make a lot of money selling their books, CDs, and coaching programs from the platform or “BOR”—back of the room.

I do not condemn them or say it is wrong. Indeed, BOR selling is a time-honored method of income generation for professional speakers. There are books and training on how to do it. But it is not for me and never will be.

There are a few reasons. The first is that, for me, it has a sleazy feel. I know it is a legitimate method of revenue generation for speakers. But to me personally, it is distasteful…and in 35 years of speaking I have never done it, not even once.

Second, and worse, your audience has paid to be there. So they have a right to expect that if they paid to attend your hour session, every one of the 60 minutes is dedicated to you delivering the content you promised—and plenty of it.

You are there to educate the audience on how to do a task or improve their mastery of a skill—and not convince them to hire you for consulting or coaching or to buy your tapes.

The only ‘selling’ takes place when the meeting coordinator reads your 1-minute bio right before you go on stage. The bio explains why you are a credible speaker on the topic, and by extension, makes the audience want to know more about what you can do for them.

I intensely dislike it when speakers take 5 or 10 minutes out of their hour talk to deliver a rehearsed, canned pitch on buying their products, with special offer packages that are good only that day.

My informal surveys show that half the audience is OK with this. But to the other half, it demeans you and causes them to lose respect for you. Who wants that?

The worst offenders are “pitch fests”—events where sponsors actually take a cut of the speaker’s product sales from the day.

To maximize their profits, these event producers pressure speakers (it has happened to me, and of course I refused to participate) to sell expensive packages of books, info-products, coaching, and other services while on stage…and to push them hard.

As a result, many speakers push the product throughout the talk, and in doing so hold back valuable tips, telling the audience instead “this is in my book”. In some of these events, virtually the entire presentation is a thinly disguised sales pitch.

This is the cesspool of professional speaking. To be fair, many embrace and profit from it. And to them I say: You can have it. But if you are a meeting planner, please let me know in advance so I neither speak at nor attend your event.

How do you know what the best social networking site is for your site? A lot of business owners just migrate towards Twitter, MySpace and Facebook because they are the most popular.

However, these might not be the best for you. Just because a particular social network has the most users doesn’t make it the best.

So what should you look for? Here are 5 important things any site should have:

1. Niche-specific

Some social networking sites specialize in certain markets. While they have significantly less users than the generic sites, 100% of the people there are going to be interested in your site topic.

What kinds of niches can you find?

Basically anything you want. There are social sites for movies, travel, sports, etc. Just about every niche has at least one forum geared towards it, and many blogs.

How do you find these sites?

One of the best ways is to just do an online search like “best social sites for…” and then fill in whatever topic you are looking for. You are likely to get a good list. Also, type in “forum+” or “blog+” and add your market at the end. Both searches will bring up sites that are related to your target market.

2. Secure

There are security issues with a lot of the smaller sites, so be certain you check on this before getting started. You might want to look them up and read reviews about them before giving out any important information on them. Some of them require some personal information, so knowing the security reputation of a site before using it is smart.

3. Intuitive interface

Some sites have clear features, some do not. If you need an MIT degree to figure out all the features of a site, than steer clear of it.

4. Multimedia-enabled (videos and photos)

Try to find sites that offer the ability to upload photos and videos. This simply helps you incorporate a personality into your marketing efforts. Uploading video and photos shows you are using the site for more than just the one-way link, and you are serious about entrenching yourself in the community.

5. Has a vibrant community

Look for sites that have a lot of conversation going on. When members are actively participating, they allow you to get in a conversation with your target market. This will enable you to answer questions and establish yourself as an expert.

The bottom line is, no matter what social site you use, the most important part is that you get involved. Don’t just use the site for a one-way link. This is how to brand yourself as an expert and get the most benefit out of your social marketing campaigns.

500 Dollars In 24 HoursThere are only a handful of people I trust in the Internet Marketing world. Guys like Dan Kennedy, and Jay Abraham. People who I know—with 100% confidence—will always give me solid advice. Who I can count on to provide the insight I need to keep growing my business.

One of those guys is my friend, Clarke Hanna. Clarke has been at this for a lot of years. And I don’t know anyone better at setting up 5, 6 or even 7-figure funnels. He practically does this stuff in his sleep.

Why am I telling you this? Because Clarke has come up with something ground-breaking. He is revealing his step-by-step system he’s been using to make $500+ per day. Including one month where he made over $38,000 while on vacation. More importantly, He’s not the only one winning with this method. One of his students made $5,872 in 8 days. Another made over $34,987k in profit in 90 days.

Up until now, access has been strictly limited. But now—for a very short window of time—Clarke is revealing how he did it.

Are you ready for financial freedom? Here it is.

PressPlayHey, if you’re struggling to get sales, or even free leads, then you NEED to see this.

I was just talking with Mark Thompson and Matt Callen, the guys behind MEGA launches like Rank Recon, AuthoritySpy and Webinar Ignition.

They said they found a way for marketers with NO writing, design or video editing skills to create GORGEOUS high-converting video sales letters (VSLs). I didn’t believe it at first but I got an advance look this software, and all I can say is, “WOW”.

Watch this quick demo to see what I mean.

I’ve been in the IM game for a long time, and to date, I have not seen anything else online that can increase conversions and sales more than video sales letters. You can take me at my word when I say VSLs get a TON of sales.

Not only that, but create “Smart Videos” along with the sales pages is proven to increase conversions by 400%.

What do I mean by “Smart Videos”? Things like:

[+] Timed Opt-in Overlay within a video
[+] Time Call-To Action buttons within a video
[+] Hiding controls
[+] Starting a video at the exact place the visitor left off (if they leave your page and return, the video will restart where they last viewed it)
[+] Integrated Scarcity features
[+] Integrated Urgency features (shown to increase sales conversions by nearly 150%)

So not only does this thing create FULL Video Sales pages, you can create smart videos and embed those individual videos directly onto any page…yes, ANY page!

I was reading an article recently that said that the average VSL converts at 12% (that’s for paid sales, not just free signups!), while a “text only sales page” converts at around .5% to 2%.

That’s a 400% advantage for VSLs!

PressPlay is an app that lets you create BEAUTIFUL VSLs even if you have NO experience in:

[+] Copywriting.
[+] Graphic design.
[+] Video editing.

It comes with comprehensive templates for both copy AND design, so creating a VSL becomes as easy as filling in the blanks.

Pressplay comes complete with:

[+] Customizable VSL Templates (copy AND visuals)
[+] Pre-Designed Graphic Elements
[+] Pre-Designed Video Player Skins
[+] Timed HTML Call-to-Action (call to action that appears after a set amount of time).
[+] Embeddable Videos.
[+] ShareGate Options
[+] Facebook Comment Integration
[+] 3rd Party Email Integration
[+] WordPress Integration
[+] In-Depth Video Insights/Analytics

Even if you’ve NEVER written copy in your life you can now create high-converting VSLs on autopilot.

Your sales may double, triple, or even quadruple overnight.

Using podcasts can be very profitable for your business. If you do them the right way, you can earn a lot of money from them. Here are 10 frequently asked questions about this technology.

1. What are podcasts?

They are downloadable digital files. They can be in either video or audio format. They are unique in that they are generally produced episode by episode. Therefore, they are often referred to as “online radio shows”.

2. How often do you need to produce a new one?

You can do so as often as you want. Some businesses do so every day, some only once a month.

3. Are they expensive to produce?

No, they cost very little.

4. Are they hard to make?

No. the only equipment you need is either a USB microphone or a regular telephone.

5. How long do they need to be?

They can be whatever length you want. It all depends on the topic and what you are using them for.

6. How do people know when you’ve done a new episode?

Everyone who is subscribing to your RSS feed will be automatically notified. They can then come to the site that it’s located at, and download it.

7. Where can they listen to the podcast?

They can do so on their computer, or take them with them. This is because they are compatible with iPods and other mobile devices.

8. What are podcasts about?

You can use podcasts for any topic you want. Obviously you will want them to be related to your niche.

9. How are they best used?

They are excellent pre-selling tools. For instance, you might get your prospects to sign up by offering a 7-part series on “how to make $100,000 in the next 6 months”.

Just make sure you have an interesting title that encourages more sign-ups. And after the series is done, you can leave them up and let anyone download them.

Another popular method is to convert your written blog content to audio or video, and then use that as a podcast. This is just another option to cater to your auditory prospects.

Finally, podcasts can be used as part of the paid product itself. For instance, if you have a membership site, you will need new content every month. A podcast would be perfect in this scenario.

10. How can you make the podcast more interesting?

Rather than just talking yourself on every episode, you might want to bring on guest experts related to your niche. This just keeps the content fresh.

The bottom line is, podcasts can be an excellent method for getting customers. Just make sure you keep them interesting by having an intriguing title, and possibly by bringing on guests from time to time. This is how to make money from podcasts starting today.

Obviously the use of video for marketing is becoming more popular all the time. One of the reasons is that videos are now ranking in the search engines. This means you can get video directory traffic, as well as search engine traffic.

And videos are often times more interesting than writing. Since most people are visual, this increases interest.

However, as you can imagine, some videos are more effective than others. Here are 5 of the most important tips to get good results.

1. Use keywords in the title

Just like a web page, doing this for your video is very important. Since this is often the only content your page will have, it’s very important to include keywords in the title.

2. Have a written description of the video

This will show the search engines what the video content is about. This again is very important due to their lack of content.

3. Use the word “video” in the title

People often add this phrase to the end of their search phrase. So putting it in your title will bring some more traffic.

4. Allow comments

This will keep the page relevant in the search engines, because Google likes updating pages. And it could also increase your sales.

Why?

This is because often times the people who take the time to comment are also the ones who are most likely to buy. Therefore, you can respond to the comments and answer questions.

5. Include useful content

When you have an interesting and unique video, tons of sites will pick it up. Therefore, you will get a lot of viral traffic without having to do a thing.

And those who watch it will tell their friends about it, which will increase your page views. Think about how often YouTube videos get passed around at work. The viral effect of videos cannot be overlooked.

However, you need to have good information.

A lot of marketers hold back on their free info because they don’t want to reveal their secrets. However, people aren’t going to buy your product unless you establish yourself as an expert. And the only way to do that is to give away quality information.

6. Tell a story

The best marketers know that telling a story is one of the best ways to increase sales. Obviously you want to have good information. However, you must be able to communicate it in an interesting way to increase your sales.

Therefore, incorporating your personal story in the video is one of the surest ways you can get more sales. For instance, if you are selling an acne product, talk about how the method you teach cleared your skin. People are always more likely to listen to someone who has personal experience with a topic.

So the bottom line is, you need to have a video that appeals to the search engines by making use of keywords. However, it must also be compelling to human visitors. Remembering both these points is the key to success.
