Analytics and ecommerce have completely changed our outlook on marketing. We’ve forgotten (happily) what it’s like to have the customer walk in, buy and walk out never really knowing if they saw our billboard, heard our radio ad, or were driving by and liked our sign. As easily as breathing, we track our conversions on our PPC campaigns, we measure how much traffic we get from natural search and calculate the ROI on our SEO spend. However, there are still plenty of companies who don’t use their site to sell online in a manner that is traceable via a computer. Many “sales” for online businesses require that they be completed using a fax or a telephone. For example, Prodpromo gets 100% of their business through Internet traffic; they do not have any external sales source. However, not a single transaction is completed online. How can Prodpromo track their sales? Many other types of businesses also have this problem. Any accounting firm, law firm, or doctor might be using the Internet to generate leads, not complete sales. Tracking these types of customers requires a little ingenuity and the implementation of a good phone conversion tracking system.
Market Samurai is no doubt one of the most popular marketing tools in the Internet marketing community. This multi-purpose tool is the start of most projects to many, including me. Despite being in a constant beta stage, the software built on Adobe AIR (which makes it available on all computer platforms, including PC, Mac and Linux) is reliable and often updated via an auto-update feature.
Magic Bullet System is a CPA training course and software from the guys who have made 100k in one day and are making about 14k per day consistently from CPA marketing, Amish Shah and Jay Styles. Why does it matter who is making what and why am I even writing this? The reason is because it shows the potential of this marketing method.
Pay Per Click traffic is one of the most effective ways to get highly targeted visitors to your website. It’s fast and there’s loads of it. The only problem is that it usually costs an arm and leg, especially in Adwords.
And yet I’m sure you’ve heard numerous times all these gurus rambling on how they can get 5-cent clicks even in the most competitive niches, as if they have some unadvertised cheap payment plan. Truth be told, there is no secret payment plan, everything comes down to keywords you bid on. There are in fact cheap keywords in any niche you can possibly think of and you can get them.
People look at traffic as the Holy Grail, the answer to all Internet Marketing problems. And as a consequence they look for guaranteed website traffic, they buy it. Certainly, if the traffic is the only obstacle, you can pay for it. Especially when it comes cheap. Been there, done that. The purpose of this post is two folded. I want to explain to those who need it explained, what traffic is the traffic you need and how to get it (paid or free).
I’ve been using Google Adwords actively for over a year now (I even took the Google Advertising Professional Exam) and I realize I have a few tips and tricks up my sleeve. Even though as I learned and tested things I didn’t think Adwords or PPC in general would have any tips and tricks as such – there are keywords, ads, your bids and that’s all there is to it, what more can you invent?
I’ve just heard that PPC Classroom 3.0 is to be released in November and it’s brought back the memories. You see, I’ve been a member of PPC Classroom 2.0 last year.
The reason I had joined it back then was because the videos of Anik Singal and Amit Mehta got me hooked. They talked about something I knew only the basic concepts about – the PPC and Adwords. And what they’ve talked about, the little tips they’ve shared got me interested enough to give it a go. I have to say it was a smart move in general, to learn PPC and I’m glad I did take action.
Let me start by saying that I don’t like the name of PPC Loophole. The word “loophole” implies a temporary bottleneck in a system that can be exploited to your advantage, and you may start thinking where you put your money bag to fill it with quick cash while the loophole lasts.
This product, however, has nothing even remotely to do with such a loophole. It’s a very well prepared PPC course on top of the popular Speed PPC software. It has great value despite its name, but I guess it’s just a matter of personal preference.
Earlier this year I wrote about PPC Bully 2 when it was first released. PPC spying programs and services are aplenty, but PPC Bully managed to improve things, especially in the international front where most other services were lacking.
The big drawback was its price – not many could agree with $2k price tag, as good as service was.
