A Valuable Lesson From Brand Marketers by Bob Bly

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

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

Partners First, Marketing Second by Michael Clayton

For people thinking of starting an online business the key to success is making many friends and online contacts in advance of setting up their business. Do this by joining communities, forums and online networking and meetup groups. Join many and make lots of friends.

Do this well in advance of even selecting your online business or affiliate program. This will help you succeed as when you select and start your business you will have lots of people to send marketing material and to sell to.

Existing online businesses should do this also. Remember there will be about a 90-day delay to get a sale once you identify suitable people and actually start making sales.

Facebook Remarketing Made Easy

Do you know that:

– 96% of individuals leave a website before converting?

– 49% of individuals visit a site 2-4 times before they actually make a purchase?

– And retargeted customers are 70% more likely to complete a purchase than someone who has not been remarketed to?

Yeah, that

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

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

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

Imagine this scene with me.

You dip your toe into the cool ocean water, testing the temperature. It feels fine.

Cool ocean mist hits your face and you take a full step into sea. The sand squishes between your toes as waves rush by your leg. You feel zen.

Then something changes…

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.

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

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 Uncategorized

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 Uncategorized

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.
