Why Do People Bash Their Heads Against Brick Walls?

Posted October 13th, 2015 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Research

You must have heard the saying “bash your head against a brick wall”? For the uninitiated, it means constantly doing something that hasn’t worked in the vain hope that it will suddenly start working.

If you ask me, that is the definition of stupidity. But hey, who I am to judge? The reason I say this is because I see so many people doing exactly this in the Online Marketing world. Maybe they read an e-book, or watched a video series. The few that take action will then flog it to death, doing that same thing over and over regardless of results.

It’s the same with keyword research. People decide on their market and then hit it head on. They look in the Keyword Finder for keywords. And why not? After all it is the keyword finder, isn’t it? Right? Wrong! You see if you go to the keyword finder you’re just getting the same returns as every other marketer. And, if they have a bigger budget, or more knowledge, your goose is cooked, my friend.

The answer? Find different keywords! Think about it. If you can’t compete on the same keywords as the super affiliates (and let’s face it most prime affiliate markets are overcrowded to bursting) you need different keywords. You still need keywords that attract the same hungry buyers, sure, but if you know where and how to look, it is not that difficult.

You see, knowledge is power. And that’s where underground marketers Lee Brooker and Derek Armson come in. They have spent the last two years developing new keyword research techniques. What’s more they have been doing this is conjunction with affiliate heavyweight Michael Cheney. These techniques are so powerful they will allow you to compete in ANY market you choose. Not by piling headlong into the super affiliates on their turf. Oh no! By secretly eating away at their ground. Silently dripping sales and commissions away from them. Destabilising the very foundations of their business to build a super affiliate business of your own. And, what’s more, these techniques are easy to understand and even simpler to put into action.

Keyword Cash Loophole

Fancy a bit of that? The Keyword Cash Loophole will enable YOU to get your slice of the affiliate commission pie that has, until now, been kept from you. Eat until you can’t eat any more; it’s tastier than Mom’s cherry pie!

How would you like to raid the keyword coffers of the Internet’s SIX biggest search engines? I mean, pull the actual buyer keywords right out of them?

Now you can…and a whole lot more!

Imagine getting real-world user-generated keywords directly from:

One of the biggest mistakes that causes businesses to fail is the merchants ultimately failing to meet the demands and expectations of customers. In other words, the merchants do not know who their customers are. Even if they have great products or services, if they fail to align what they offer with what their customers want, they are simply barking up the wrong tree.

No customers, no business, no sales. It is as simple as that. Therefore it is important to define the type of prospects to target. Instead of spending important advertising dollars on drawing in the wrong set of prospects, construct a customer profile based on the majority of your customers and concentrated around their needs and wants. By creating a buyer persona and nailing down your customers’ needs, lifestyles and even apprehensions, you will have the capacity to think of a ready answer to address your customers’ challenges. By placing ourselves in the shoes of our prospects, we can better pre-empt their purchasing decision.

There are 5 ways you can research your buyer persona:

1) Online Retrieval Of Demographics Data

The process is pretty instantaneous and all you need to do is input product keywords or URLs of other people’s websites that are similar to your business (or your competitors’) into AdWords Display Planner. These are the steps:

a) Go to http://adwords.google.com
b) Click “Tools”, “Display Planner”
c) Select “Show only estimates for my targeting criteria”.
d) Enter a URL or product keyword
e) Click “Get estimates”.

You get a results display that looks like below:


But as you can see, the data is very limited to age, gender and device usage.

Alexa is another website that can provide demographics intelligence but unless you upgrade, you are just as much limited to gender, education and browsing location data.


2) Interview Your Prospects And Customers (Pre-Sales)

This is surely one of the most effective way to get a sense of the majority demographic of your customers, but you need to ask the right questions. Here is a sample list:

How old are they?
What is their gender?
Where do they live?
What is their job?
What is their education level?
How do they prefer to stay contactable?
What is their ethnic background?
How much do they earn?
What is their marital status?
How do they spend their free time?
Which newspaper, books or magazines do they read?
What is their favorite TV channel?
What are their hopes and dreams?
What do they wear?
What are their political and religious views?
What are their biggest fears? What keeps them awake at 3am?
What makes them happy?
What frustrates them?
What do they find most relaxing?
What do they talk about with their friends?
Which appeals to them more: function or aesthetic?
What are their hobbies or interests?
What are their attitudes towards certain issues?

You can organize focus groups, walk-in sessions, on-site visits, or make phone calls to conduct interviews. You can also publish the questions in a web page through which visitors can submit their answers collated in an email sent to you.


3) Surveys (Post-Sales)

Conduct surveys to get feedback from customers about their purchases. It could be an immediate, short post-sales survey about the checkout experience, ot a survey that occurs one month after purchase to gauge user experience. The answers your customers give you can reveal much about how and what they think, and could be surprisingly quite apart from pre-sales answers in terms of scope or alignment. Sometimes customers may use the occasion to inquire about other products/services. All these information can make you consider if the major customer demographic is thinking along the same line, and whether you need to tweak your marketing strategies based on the survey answers.

Popular online survey tools include Foresee, Qualaroo, SurveyMonkey and WebEngage.


4) Look At Past Purchases

Supposed you have a range of products or services. Over a period of time, it becomes apparent to you that some offers sell better than others. Your sales results can tell you what the marketplace needs most, therefore you can reconsider your marketing strategies to target the most in-demand customer segment of the marketplace.


5) Social Media Engagement

Social media puts you on the frontline of direct communication with prospects and customers. By monitoring and observing what they say about your industry and products/services, you gain first-hand insights into their expectations. It is also a great time to resolve any issues or complaints that they may have. Doing so in a prompt manner not only reflects that there is real customer support that cares, but also your pursuit towards customer satisfaction.

Also investigate online forums and Q&A sites like Quora. These sites are great resources for problem solving. By researching for solutions, you can better understand how to help your own prospects and position your products/services in a way that shows you really know your customers’ problems.

Customer research is a long-drawn process and it is never-ending because the marketplace keeps changing. However, the benefits of targeting the right customers are enormous. For one thing, repeat sales from old-time customers are easy to get. A high level of customer loyalty exists because your ability to know customers inside out will make them feel they are well attended to. They will even evangelize and refer new customers to you, thereby exponentially growing your business.

Good business does not start with a great product or service, or great know-how or a high efficiency in daily operations. It is simply knowing your customers like they are your friends, and it is a great untold secret to sales riches.

The more popular the keyword, the more cost-per-click (CPC) it’s going to have. So it’s very important to do your keyword research before you start selecting your keywords as you’re setting up your campaign. The lite version of KeywordSpy is free, but you can also upgrade to the full version and see more results and have more capabilities for a monthly fee. Google used to have its Keyword External Tool, which has since morphed into Google AdWords Keyword Planner. You need a Gmail account to access this free tool. Either of these tools will allow you to enter keywords or key phrases and then view popularity (actual search results), as well as what the average CPCs are. This is important for your keyword selection and bidding.

You can also type in your ‘core’ or focus keywords and get additional ad group/keyword ideas. To help refine your search terms, you can also choose broad match, broad match modifier, phrase match, exact match, and negative match.
