Marketing via Selling

Marketing via selling gives you a choice

of strategies to use.

Message not Seen, Selling doesn't happen

Message not Seen, Selling doesn’t happen

Rain and some more Rain…again today, so I am
spending some time inside..listening to Politics and reading emails!!!!  Selling isn’t what it is cracked up to be, so I’m doing research.  Maybe I’ll share. 

 

Chris Munch loves old stories…
here is one he used in an email I received this a.m.
 

“Getting Your Message Across Doesn’t Always Work”

“Getting Your Message Across”

 

“There was a terrible flood and a devout Christian was stuck on a roof avoiding the rising flood water.

A guy in a boat came along and said “Hop in. I’ll take you to dry land.”

The Christian said “No. Save someone else. I’ll be fine. God will

rescue me.”

Then another boat came along. Same thing…the Christian waves the boat off. “I’m okay. God’s going to rescue me. I have faith.”

A Helicopter…?

Finally a helicopter comes along but the crew can’t convince him

to get winched up to safety.

“Don’t worry about me,” he says. “God is going to save me.”

The waters keep rising and the man drowns.

When he gets to heaven he’s angry and complains to God

“I had faith that you’d save me and you let me drown.”

God says:

“I don’t know what you mean. I sent 2 boats and a helicopter!”

 

 
“Sometimes people See the Message, but just don’t get the Message.”
Hmmm..
Chris tied it into getting your email messages through.

 

But this applies to Selling in general
cause if you aren’t getting your message through
Might as well give it up as a lost cause.

 

How  Does Selling Really Work?

Have a Message
Cause  or request an Action
People Join up  or Buy (Conversions)
Earn some Income or collect likes or grow an email list!
A whole Big Plate of Yes!!!! 
On the other hand you can end up with this:
No Message
No Action
No Conversions
No Income
A whole Big Plate of No.
  • Regardless of the vehicle you use to deliver your sales message: 
  • Facebook Ads  
  • Blog posts on your WordPress  Domain 
  • Articles posted on your Blogspot blog,
  • Email messages
  • it brings us back to this simple fact: 

The message you are delivering has to connect and FAST.

Most  stats I have read seem to think that you have less than 2 seconds to hook the fish and start reeling it in.

In other words if your prospect looks and leaves, regardless of the source of your Message…you are in trouble. 

Holds true even for Videos. 

So what is a guy (or girl) to do?

Review: How to Create an Infographic in an Hour!

Well, a review of how to create an infographic in an hour means either being an infographic guru or finding out where and how to do. 

Inforgraphics:  What are they? 

For the uninformed, Infographics are an excellent tool to use to consolidate huge amounts of information, statistics or even related facts that you want to compare.

I was reading a Corbett Barr article about blogging and why you don’t want to create a blog????   Was really an article in an old archive to his old site about building a blog….

Anyway, I continued on to a site called The Gumroad Blog that was explaining how to use content to help run traffic to your product that is listed for sale on their Gumroad sales processor. 

They referred me to Hubspot and their article and free giveaway on how to make Infographics in about an hour and Why you need to use Infographics.

Here is a sample below, detailing Social Media marketing facts and statistics.  Not included in this infographic was some interesting information I read while on Hubspot…64% of people open their email on their mobile appliances…iPhone, iPad or Android. 

What is the world coming to?  Mobile and no Pc

That brings up another point, is your Autoresponder mobile friendly? Better find out!

Plus there is a link so you can go download your own templates and get the detailed instructions on how to make your own infographic (according to Hubspot) in about an hour.

I do believe that they are using Power Point..which I don’t have but I am going to give my Open Office power point imitator  a whizz at it.
Enjoy!  I did! 

Please include attribution to http://blog.hubspot.com with this graphic.  I did!  Check them out.  They give away nice stuff.

Coaching Review: Marketing Where to Draw the Line

Coaching:

This Review about Marketing Tips is part of a

coaching program and is definitely a benefit.

I’m getting told to stop buying all the junk.

A lot of marketers are still selling products that are presented as something that is going to kickstart your efforts into a huge income bonanza in a week.

This isn’t a blueprint for success or a consistent platform for future success.  It is often something that worked for that marketer because he or she had a support structure in place that could take advantage of this particular software or strategy.

So, depending on the marketer, they decide to share and create a “product” that is shared either privately with other “Gurus” or send it out their followers and recruited JVs (joint venture partners).

I added this explanation of a JV because there is probably someone like me who is still learning the marketers vocabulary and doesn’t realize the real source of all those recommendations that pile up in your inbox every day.

If you are on several mailing lists, depending on the level of sophistication of your subscribed-to marketers…you notice that some of the emails are copied and pasted from somewhere.  Except for the difference in the link to click on, it is like watching the exact same TV ad to buy a Kitchen Aide Blender, except it is on sale at Wal-mart instead of Macys.      

All these wonderful offers might work for someone whose level of development and growth has a structure in place to take advantage of a probably temporarily unsaturated technique.

I watch a lot of webinars because like the rest of you, I’m still searching, even though I try to keep focused and work on what I already have.  Plus, I’m a nosey Bessie and want to keep up with what is going on.  Never know, you might hit the gold!

Some things that have stuck:  Remarks that I’ve heard Jason Fladlien make in more that one of his webinar presentations.

No Quote Marks anywhere in this, because it is all what I remember and less, because Jason talks fast and gets so excited you might call it Audio Spam!

Internet marketing requires speed.  When something new comes along, don’t buy it and store it on your hard drive. The minute you download it, go through it and use it the same day.

If you aren’t going to use it, then don’t buy this.  I don’t want tire kickers buying and requesting refunds.  Refunds are not a problem, it is just a personal preference that I have. I want to help people improve their marketing outcome, not waste time downloading and not using what I am offering.  

Who gets there first, gets the money.  That is what this is all about. But, he is quick to emphasize this point:

This isn’t just about the money, it is also about providing your subscribers and buyers with value.  

Jason emphasizes and states over and over…many times on a webinar that he will give the lucky attendees 90% of whatever he is selling.

 
This is value.  No quotes, because this is what I remember him saying.

Except for a few of my own tweaks that are being sold in whatever I am offering, you could take what I have given you on this webiar and implement it today and earn from it. The difference between using what I have given you on this webinar and what you get in the offer is going to be the speed and ease of setup and how much you eventually earn.

I have also noticed that a consistent part of any offer he makes is videos and written instructions for setting up and using the offer.  If you are technically challenged this can make the difference and is part of that Value he talks about.

Enough on Jason Fladlien.  

The point that might have gotten lost in the shuffle is this:

Learn to critically assess any of the Marketed offers that come into your Inbox.  

Criterior number one should be this:  With what I have in place…a blog on my domain, a Facebook Fan Page, Google Blogs, WordPress com sites, Squidoo, etc.  can I use this offer and integrate it into what I have to improve the results that I am now getting.

To my sorrow, I have in the past bought programs, gone through them and half heartedly used them with dismal results.  

An older and more informed assesment reveals this one flaw in many of the programs marketed today and in the past:  

Traffic=Money

While many will load you up with a “Bonus” for getting traffic to your site and offers, unless you have the cash on hand for a super Keyword targeted PAID advertising campaign, you’ve just bought some more Hard Drive clutter.

Worse are the ones that include an OTO to the venders suggested backlink farms (which of course cost a pretty penny) and result in de-indexing of your site by Google. Even though they will pre-sell this offer as not needing SEO, Google, Facebook ad infinitum, but is their Traffic solution.

A funny footnote for this ramble is this.  Windows 7 which I recently upgraded to has an interesting feature:  Explorer Search

I can use it to even search my usb portable drive that I plugged into my computer after removing it from my old unfunctioning XP based computer.  

So if you run across an interesting Earth Shaking offer, search your hard drives, use the offer name or the venders name and see what you already have.  You probably have the program already, but are just missing some small piece of software like a new plugin or added bonus that can be acquired under a different name somewhere else and will function for you.

Or even better, you might have unsubscribed from updates and just need to visit the program’s members area, sign in and get the update.  
If you have a program from an active marketer who didn’t bite the dust after selling, then to maintain his reputation he keeps his original offer up to date and many includede free updates for life.

This is especially true for WordPress plugins or binary programs that you use on your desktop. Some get a little hard nosed at times and slightly change the program name so it isn’t just an update, but will often give credit to owners through support for the original purchase so they can “update to the new version” at a discounted price.

I’ve strayed from my beginning thoughts.  My coach did say, “clean out your main email account, move subscritions or unsubscribe and Stop buying.”

The following is what I fixed in my mind, not a direct quote.

Right now you need to concentrate on setting up your mind and thought process instead of buying any more programs that you don’t use.  Included are a whole weeks worth of videos that must be watched in the coaching members area (If you skip one, you get a notice….).

It amounts to:  You paid me to coach you.  If you want the results you are seeking, How to Make a Living on the Internet, then do what I tell you.  You may not think these videos are necessary, but they are.  They made a big difference in what has made me succesful.  They will do the same for you.

I watched these videos several years after I started making “Big” money doing what I do.  I feel so strongly about the information included, that I went to the producer of these videos and bought rights from him so I could include them in my coaching program.

Watch every video and even download the provided audios so you can listen to them when you are doing other things like: driving to work, jogging, raking leaves or even hiking.  

Repetiton works.  

This is important. Do it or leave.  I can’t help you.
The unsubscribe button is at the bottom of all my emails.

I plan to post this review of what I am learning in my Marketing category, because there are evidently some things to learn about marketing that aren’t included in just plain old marketing This-is- how-you-do-it programs.

To be continued.  

P.S.  This is my effort to give value.  So if I have given you something worth thinking about then good or bad (I post them all except for Spam) comment and contribute your 2 cents worth!

 

Cararta,

Skipper Works

How to Build an Email List: Fast

Rapid Subscribers

$100+ Plus A Day While Building an Email List

How to Build An Email List Fast That Produces Real Income

Still not making Real Money with all your Internet Marketing Efforts?

If you are like me, you keep working on your site or blog, doing the articles and comments and endless Tweets on Twitter or likes on Facebook.

Are you still buying those offers that promise the world and deliver just another credit card bill?

Invested in one of those pricey MLMs with forever monthly fees?  Still trying to recover your investment but can’t figure it out?

Just wish for once you could get your hands on something that Really Works and builds a dedicated Affiliate Marketing Email List  fast?

Then there is always a statement on the Sales Pages….If you’ve made it to this page then I’m sure you’ve heard the Guru’s Mantra, “The Money is in the List”  but none that I have bought and met and used so far can really get me to the point of making my own money.

Don’t know if it is their fault or mine.  Maybe I’m missing a step or two and the magic just whizzes right on by!
I’d love to be able to  write and mean it when I say, “Until Today.  Want your Aweber Stats to look like this?

Chart Aweber Email List

Watch your Email List Grow Every Day

How to Build a Targeted Marketing Email List

I’m in a Facebook Group run by someone I count as a Friend.  I couldn’t believe it when I saw an Offer on his page.  He had allowed David Kirby to post a link to his latest launch, or (maybe relaunch would be a better term)….and the reasons why?   David Kirby has updated and expanded his Rapid Subscribers program and wants to let everyone use what he is using to grow his email list of subscribers, like using fast forward to watch a video!

David reveals that he updated and is sharing because,

“The Internet Changes Every Day….”

Programs must be kept up to date to work and

“This Offer is for My EXACT $5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM…

This will show you EXACTLY how to get QUALITY SUBSCRIBERS as fast as possible. I also show various other methods I use myself and the EXACT traffic sources I use too plus so much more!”

Is there a Con in this Program?

I’ve gone through some of the  information on this product…the only con I can find is that there is an up sell for more help…up to you to decide. But the inexpensive WSO price for the initial offer gives you a great insight into  what you need to get started.

How Does it Work?

Building an Email List Fast has nothing to do with:
How to Disappoint your parents in 61 seconds by dating a girl they hate

What it has to do with:
is being able to Copy & Paste David Kirby’s EXACT

$5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM..

Rapid Subscribers & Sales V5.0

The Goal is To create an affiliate marketing email list that grows and makes money while it is growing!

It will work Like The Monster the Kali Muscle Story  a video for muscle builders and mind builders because it is innovative like Kali who had to change to survive and did.

This system for fast list building has also changed so that you are building a list using the exact methods that has allowed David Kirby to make $5,667.87 plus a month, because it is the Ultimate List Building System and what works for David and my friend (I’ll explain below) will work for you if you do what you are instructed to do.

This is a system so powerful that it produces ultra high quality 400 to 500 subscribers every day, after a few weeks of Activating and using it.

Now that doesn’t compare to the 7,820,000 plus people who watched Jennifer Lopez’s, “Live it Up Ft. PitBull” in two days….

But compared to most list building programs, David Kirby’s $5,667.87+ A Month ULTIMATE LIST BUILDING SYSTEM….. is awesome.

What David is offering is his exact $5000 + per month Ultimate List Building blue print.

It is his personal blue print to success…

And to put the icing on the cake, it is a Copy and Paste system.

This Build an Email Fast system is designed to grow fast and you learn how to make money from that list at the same time while it is growing (according to my friend who is using it).

If you truly want to know how to build an email list in the fastest easiest way that is filled with quality subscribers that open your emails and buy your products or affiliate offers that you recommend, then you need this ultra powerful and fast Free TO Implement copy and paste simple list building method.

What you get is Real Traffic and Real Results.

How do I know it works?

I was referred to this program by my friend who has added over 3000 subscribers in the last   few weeks.  He is now able to sell solo ads directly targeted to his niche.

Because he has helped me in the past with problems on my Blog, and I noticed in his posts on his Facebook group that he had gone from adding 25 subscribers a week to adding subscribers in Hundreds…. I asked him how he added so many so quick….

He revealed he is using David Kirby’s Rapid Subscribers & Sales and the best part of it was that he was already earning money, while still continuing to build his list.

He requested that I not publish his name, because he is still working his day job until he builds up enough income to kiss that Day Job,
“Good Bye!”

In my mind I am wondering if I can  use a complete copy and paste system, included in a step by step course with free updates for life, to finally build a real email list that is an asset?

One thing giving me hope is the  hardcore 60 days full money back guarantee..???  Use it and build a list or get all your money back!!!

Learn and Earn at the same time.  My friend using this program has used purchased solo ads as part of what he is doing to get his list building effort into high gear.

By choosing the right sellers he has been able to more than pay for his purchase with the sales generated by the ads, plus acquiring his own new subscribers at the same time.

This part about this program is important 

Because the internet changes every day so what you use for Marketing and Email List Building must change with it or you get left behind.  David Kirby promises to keep this program up to date.

I know from reading as much as I can and even buying email list programs, that there is a basic formula to list building, but this one seems to have an extra twist that puts it on fast forward.

Plus there is that tantalizing statement from  David Kirby that he will keep you up to date when he makes a change in what he is doing

If you are interested in building an Internet Marketing Sales Email List filled with Responsive subscribers, who not only subscribe but buy,  then check out what David Kirby has to say about his program by Reading More Click Here.

What do you think?  I’d appreciate your input!  I love reviewing programs and this time, because I have a referral from someone I really trust, who is using the program and getting results, think maybe just maybe I’ve found a winner!.

Have got to quit writing and make some changes, so I’ll talk to you later.  I did sign up as an affiliate so if you click and buy, I might just make a buck!

Here is a little video I posted on YouTube.  After You watch, I’d appreciate a comment below (on this page)…or a Facebook Like or a Twitter Tweet!  Enjoy! (the commercials are longer than the Video!)
