Get Your Own Moneymaking Website, Offering Cutting Edge Freedom Reports, And Keep The Lion’s Share Of The Profits

Global Freedom Strategies

Hi there!

The other day I came upon a great information resource,
a place where you can obtain a number of free reports –
providing information on a wide range of critically-important
subjects. The website is called Global Freedom Strategies
and, as the name suggests, its focus is on personal and
financial freedom.

You may be thinking, so what? Well here is where it gets really
interesting for us online marketers.

This site has a really lucrative business model from which we can
all benefit immensely. If you sign up as a GFS Partner you can make
tons of commissions promoting these personal and financial freedom
reports. I would tell you more in this e-mail but I think it’s just
better (and better explained) if you were to visit the GFS Partner
info page.

Check it out for yourself:

All the best

Pitch Page Design Success Using the Block Approach

Written by: Lars Clausen, Guest Author

If you’re a new ClickBank vendor, writing the text for your Pitch Page can be an intimidating task. When you’ve got nothing but a blank page on your screen, it can be tough to know where to start. One technique that I’ve discovered over the years for writing effective Pitch Page copy is what I call the “block approach.”

Basically, it just involves breaking your Pitch Page text and design into separate blocks of content, which you can easily rearrange and edit separately. Block designing gives you layout flexibility, easier editing, and a solution for writer’s block. To successfully create a Pitch Page using blocks, all you need is a clear sense of who your product is intended for (your target audience) and the difference it will make in their lives (value).

Here are the 5 steps to take to build your Pitch Page using the block approach:

Step 1 – Create primary blocks

During creation, the order of these blocks doesn’t matter much. If you get stuck, put aside the block you’re working on and start on another. At this stage, perfection isn’t the point, as you’ll do your editing later.

You’ll want to create:

  • 3-5 headlines consisting of problem, solution, and benefit statements
  • 3-5 text blocks focusing on benefits and descriptions
  • 1 bullet list of thought-provoking questions
  • 1-3 bullet lists that focus on benefits
  • 1-2 testimonial blocks, preferably with pictures. Before you ask for a testimonial, write down what messages will be helpful and invite your testimonials to include specific statements. Once the testimonials arrive, edit them if necessary and ask for permission to use the edited versions.
  • 1 set of images that support your product’s value

Step 2 – Arrange these blocks into an initial layout

Again – don’t worry about perfection in this step. Just test out a sample layout that you can read over to see if it flows well and makes sense to the reader.

Step 3 – Evaluate as if you were a member of your target audience

Does your rough draft connect with your target audience? Does your Pitch Page clearly deliver the benefits and the value of your product? If you had the problem or concern they have, would your sales copy address that need and make it clear why your product solves the need?

Step 4 – Add secondary blocks to the page

First, you’ll want to create subheadings that emphasize benefits, smooth transitions, and create page flow. Next, create “urgency messages” that raise the purchase priority for your reader. These elements tie your primary blocks together and add to the strengths and urgency of your arguments.

Step 5 – Edit

Many successful authors live by the credo that “writing is editing.” A block approach makes editing simple. You can edit individual blocks to increase their clarity. You can rearrange blocks to increase the power of the Pitch Page. If something is missing, you can just create and insert a new block, rather than having to completely redo your page content.

Try out the block approach when you design your next Pitch Page. I think you’ll find that getting in the habit of working one block at a time will help you avoid writer’s block, keep you from throwing away your whole project and starting from scratch, and let you get your Pitch Page finished faster!

ClickBank Pirate – Promising Money Maker

Hello fellow online money makers. Today I’m going to be telling you a bit about ClickBank Pirate, a ClickBank money making system I ran across the other day. All you online marketer newbies should know that you can make a LOT of money with ClickBank – trust me on this one as I speak from experience. However it does not come so easily. In order to be successful at making money with ClickBank products one needs to have a webhosting account, autoresponders, marketing skills, and website development skills, etc. Not everyone can say they posses this repertoire of skills. So what is a less advanced but hungry for success online marketer to do? The answer is you look for a money making system that does not require any of those skills and resources. Unfortunately there aren’t too many of those around. Luckily though ClickBank Pirate happens to be one such system.

I stumbled across this system via a online marketers mailing list I subscribe to. Clearly this system has been out for a while and I bet a lot of people have already made good money with this system – heck someone sure made money from me as I decided to purchase it. What convinced me to buy it? Well, one of the major things that appealed to me was the level of integration the system offers – something I haven’t come across in any ClickBank money making system yet.

Basically the system does automatically what ever successful affiliate would end up doing him/herself. Once someone has visited your squeeze page and downloads a free report offered on it they’ll be automatically entered into the ClickBank Pirate autoresponder system. From there on your potential customer will receive offers for various RELEVANT ClickBank products tied to YOUR ClickBank affiliate id, so you’ll get commissions from that customer on all sales.

In my opinion some of the system’s strong points are:

1) You don’t have to sell anything

2) You don’t need to learn HTML or any other techy stuff

3) You don’t need to have your own website autoresponder, domain etc.

All you have to do is send some traffic to a squeeze page then sit back and count the Clickbank commissions ticking in.

If you can cut and paste, you have what it takes to make money with the Clickbank Pirate system.

Another thing I like is that you’ll get tons of rebrandable free reports – can you say viral marketing? Yes indeed, this is one very powerful and very successful marketing method. I’ve already rebranded a few free reports and “spread them out there” sort of speak.

Also they’ll give you a ready-made free blog that is completely monetized and ready to promote your turnkey business and Clickbank links. You just log in, click and post the content they’ve already given you. Have a look at mine for a sample of how it looks like in action:

http://moneyguru.cbpirateblog.com/

In case you are wondering this system is affordable. You can get it for an initial price of $67 + $37/month thereafter. If you get a few other online marketers to join using your link you can easily recover the $37 monthly fee. You get a 60 day money back guarantee so your overall risk is zero – I wouldn’t have even considered buying it if this guarantee was not there.

All in all I’d say the system shows promise and I’ll be promoting it as best as I can to put it to the test. I’ll report back my findings later on. Wish me luck!

If you too would like to get in on the action and make some money with this system have a look at this link:

http://cbpirate.com/main/moneyguru

Don’t forget to sign-up for my mailing list as that will be the method I will first use to let everyone know about new money making opportunities that I believe are worthwhile.

I wish you all success! I hope you’ll stash plenty of booty in your treasure chest.

Cheers!

Affiliate Project X Review

affiliateprojectx.jpg

I don’t know what got into me, but this Affiliate Project X product caught my eyes as I ran across it during a Google search, so I decided to give it a try after reading the long sales page. I’ve been doing the whole “affiliate marketer” thing for a while now so I’m not a complete newbie at this. The sales page (it IS trying to sell you something after all!) made it seem as if I was going to uncover some secret formula what will make me hundreds of thousands of dollars, so after I paid via ClickBank I was thinking, OK, let’s see whether this is all BS or a possible golden goose. After payment I immediately gained access to the members section where I proceeded to download the “Project X Manual” At this point I was a

I flipped quickly paste the intro pages and got into the meat of the subject matter and to my shock and surprise the manual talked about ClickBank AND AdWords. At this point I was thinking to myself “Uhh, I know how to do this already!” That’s pretty much all I needed to see to know that this product is not for me. Is it right for you? It all depends!

The bottom line is this; if you’re an intermeddiate to advanced affiliate Affiliate Project X is NOT for you. If you’ve never heard of ClickBank or AdWords and have no possible clue as to how you can possibly use the two to make money, then you may want to give Affiliate Project X a consideration.

Before I end this post I should also mention another thing that turns me off about Affiliate Project X. Some of the techniques promoted such as offering a bonus or refund are practices that violate the terms of service for Clickbank affiliates. So be careful with this one! Although the techniques the author of Affiliate Project X work, they are dangerous! It’s up to you in the end if you want to take your chance and possibly have your ClickBank account suspended.

Now as for price, it costs $97 and there is a guaranteed money-back policy if you decide it’s not for you (I’m waiting for my refund)

So in conclusion:

Who should buy it – Complete newbie affiliates

Who should NOT – Intermeddiate to advanced affiliates

The sales page can be viewed over here.

That about does it for this review. Thank you for your time and attention. Come back often (or subscribe to my RSS feed) as soon I’ll be posting some videos for all you beginner ClickBank affiliates.  They’ll tech you how to create a pitch page, create hoplinks, etc.

Cheers,

Alan!
