Setting Up Your Profiles To Reach The Widest Possible Audience With Connie Green

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Connie Green: I think it (Social Media/ Twitter) really can be overwhelming. First, you just want to set up your profiles, so you want to get over on Twitter.

(And) Twitter has a whole lot of value besides the social value. It has a whole lot of SEO value that I’m going to be going into great detail about. Just suffice to say, get your profile up there. Put in everything that you need to. Have your URL there and your bio and you also want to change that bio, don’t keep the same bio forever. Every month you can change it up a little bit.

Who you are doesn’t change but your information on it might. I might talk about people working from home, or I might talk about someone that is a former classroom teacher. I would use some different words in that bio, so you get people’s attention in a different way or get different people’s attention. That is important.

Then get over to Facebook and Linkedln, make sure that you have your profiles complete over there. That’s the first step.

Want To Be A Number 1 Best-Selling Author Or Make Money? (Excerpted from Warren Whitlock Interview)

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Warren Whitlock: If your marketing program is “I want to be a number one bestseller author and then I’m going to figure out how to make money.” You’re going about it all wrong. Start off by having something that actually makes money which I think is part of what you teach with eBooks and then whether or not that develops into courses or coaching or consulting or whatever else you do that’s fine.

Now when you have either a hard-cover book or a Kindle or whatever the format is now arranging to do a publicity push to get up to bestseller for a day makes a lot of sense. I don’t look at a book or even an ebook. Anything that sells for under $100 I don’t think you’re building a real business.

That should not be your only product. Don’t get me wrong if you can sell a million copies of something at $9.95 more power to you. Go do that. That’s fine but we consider anything under $100 now when we’re planning a business plan as being a trigger event…..

In other words, signing somebody up to start a relationship and if it covers cost you’re doing fine, if you make a dollar even better but there are good marketers out there who are now spending $100 to sell a $50 product because they know the relationship with that customer is going to generate $500,000 over time.

You’ve got to compete with those people if you’re going after a direct marketing way of doing it. So I always say yes. Start with what with you sell somebody and here’s a question if I came to you and I said I’ve got $100,000 and I want an answer and I want it fast would you sell me an ebook?

I don’t look at a book or even an ebook. Anything that sells for under $100 I don’t think you’re building a real business.

Ellen Violette: Right.

Warren Whitlock: That should not be your only product. Don’t get me wrong if you can sell a million copies of something at $9.95 more power to you. Go do that. That’s fine.

Ellen Violette: No.To me if somebody’s coming to you directly and you’re going to talk to them then it’s trying to get them into the highest things first and work down.

Warren Whitlock: Right exactly. So, if you don’t have that highest thing first then you’ve got a problem.

Ellen Violette: Yeah.

Warren Whitlock: And that’s what I’m saying. So that the ebook or the book or the teleseminar series or whatever it is, it’s just the start of our relationship with somebody because…So if you don’t have that highest thing first then you’ve got a problem. So that the ebook or the book or the teleseminar series or whatever it is, it’s just the start of our relationship with somebody.

Getting Set Up On Clickbank: (Excerpted From Willie Crawford Interview)

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Write a sales page and if you are going to put your ebook on ClickBank you need a sales page that talks about your ebook.

Then, send a customer over to a payment processor, I use PayPal a lot. And after they pay for it, they are sent back to a page to download it.

And my process is often to thank them on that download page, give them a link to click on to download the product and also to recommend something else, so that I don’t leave them hanging.That is really it for setting up the process.

With ClickBank, you need to have that sales page ready and have your download page ready and then you submit it. You have to pay $50 and you want to do that per product at ClickBank because only one can be the primary product. And so, basically you’ll pay $50 for each product to have a separate ClickBank account because when the customer clicks on a link, it takes them to one default landing page.

For $50 a person can read about, reach your page, click on a link and order. ClickBank is actually collecting the money and dealing with the credit-card companies and telling them and verifying that you are going to deliver the product to the customers, so ClickBank is actually selling the product when you use ClickBank as your platform.
