Joke:

A little boy goes to his father and asks “Daddy, how was I born?”

The father answers: “Well son, I guess one day you will find out anyway.

Your mom and I got together in a chat room on AOL. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your mom and we met up at cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, I upgraded my floppy disk to a stiffy and then your mom agreed to do a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later, a blessed little pop-up appeared and said:

“You’ve got Male!”

 

 

 

Today I wanted to give an update on my list building case study and Facebook ads specifically.

So far, Facebook has been a bust.  The ads have not produced many opt-ins and I think there are several reasons.  Being the analytical type, I’m trying to figure it out.  Here’s where the problem lies with Facebook ppc:

Post 12 – Increase Sales Buy Using This One Sales Tactic

I found this funny, funny image for today’s bit a humor.

Does anyone remember the Walkman?

 

 

Here’s Why Your Ads Aren’t Converting To Sales!

Do you struggle to convert your copy into lead and sales?  Are you spending a boat load of time and money, getting your message out, but no one is responding?

That means, your ppc ads are not converting into opt-ins or sales? Or perhaps your free traffic methods are just not working?

Your advertising may have one simple problem – a problem that is very, very common with people that are NOT familiar with sales tactics.  It’s a  problem that can be overcome very easily.

I learned the answer to this problem from my days of flipping houses.

Yes, you heard that right. I flipped houses for about 3 years back in 2007-2009. That was about the time the real estate market crashed here in the U.S.   I lost about 5K on my first flip, due to housing prices crashing during the exact time my flip was on the market.  Had the prices not dropped, I would have made about 20K.  What timing, right?

After that, things turned around but banks were very hesitant to loan money for flipping.  It was a challenging time.  Although I stuck with it for a few years, I had another, much better calling.

What Is The Answer I Learned?

I learned back then that when I listed a property, the thing “not-to-do” is to list the features. Let me give you an example:

Post 11 – List Building And Facebook Ads Case Studies

seo imageYou may have noticed I always like to start each post with a bit of humor.  Hopefully, you’re idea of what’s funny is the same as mine!

Now, back to business.

As I mentioned previously, my goal is to build my list to 5000 in 1 month.  However, because I’m a little behind, I’m giving myself until the end of February to reach that goal.

I finally starting driving traffic to my squeeze page using Facebook 2 days ago and the results are in!

Facebook is a gold mine when it comes to ad targeting.  I know this.  I also know from experience that it takes a while to get your ads “dialed in” and that’s what is happening here.

I have created a split test of 2 different squeeze pages,  2 different ads, each exactly the same except the image I’m using, and 5 different targeting using 5 different audiences.  This gives me a lot to think about.

In the video below I’ll show you my exact campaigns, targeting, squeeze page, and results.   Just know that these results are only after 2 days.  Much more is to come.

Post 10 – Shocking Listing Building Proof – Solo Ads Suck!

Internet-changed-usToday, I’ve got proof!  Building your list using solo ads sucks!

I’ve mentioned before, possibly on this blog, but honestly, today’s Saturday and I can’t even remember Friday.

First, f0r those that are new to internet marketing, solo ads are an entire market where you hire someone that has a big list to send your promotional email to their list.  You can pay anywhere for .40 per click at the low end, but .70-.80 per click or more is not out of the question – especially if you hire someone that has a “reputation” for sending quality clicks.

Several website exist for this purpose and if you really want to, you can go on them, register and start hiring people to send your email.  But my advice is,  don’t.  And here’s proof why.

Below, you’ll see screen shots that I took today from my Aweber account, comparing 2 separate lists, one I built using mostly solo ads, the other is my current buyers list I built in case study #1 written about in this blog,  If you wanna read more about that case study, GO HERE!

In the screen capture’s, you’ll see my 2 lists.   Read more Post 10 – Shocking Listing Building Proof – Solo Ads Suck!

Post 9 – Building My List Action Plan

Facebook jokes… don’t you love ’em!?

 

OK, I know I’ve been lax on my postings recently.  However, I do intend to get better, really.

I’m now heavily into my action plan with my list building goal, so I’ll be explaining what I’m doing and what’s working as I expand that list.

Before I can actually drive traffic, all the separate parts need to be set up and work together.   That’s what I’m doing now.

Before I explain those, I recorded a short video so you can see how I created my action plan, and how I’m using Evernote and the Google Calendar.

You can watch it by clicking the “read more” link.

My action plan doesn’t start with driving traffic.  There’s a lot of set up that has to go into it first.  That’s why this week is not an active list building week.  It’s about setting up all the moving parts.

Now, I hate to admit this, but I do have a problem that you may have as well.
