Buyers Buyers everywhere you look to increase sales

Lesson #5 of 8: Buyers, Buyers Everwhere

See the previous lessons first:

Lesson #1:

Lesson #2:

Lesson #3:

Lesson #4:

Today I am going to keep it short and sweet!

We have had some long emails the last couple days and I would rather have you out there generating traffic to your sites.

We wrapped up yesterday in regards to finding out the importance of writing/emailing your own list.

We also looked at the fact that having multipe streams of traffic is of the most importance!

Diversity Rules!

Which brings us to Lesson 5! Buyers, Buyers Everythere!

The question you probably want to know is where to I get the buyers from…or where can I get my traffic from.

Well here is the deal and is the key to lesson #5!

“There are buyers everywhere” says Daegan Smith

It really does not matter where you get traffic from as long as you are getting traffic to your site.

The more you bring, the more that are going to opt in of course due to the law of averages….

…assuming you build the right business.

Do not expect to put your link/ad for those who may be interested in knitting on a website dedicated to motorcycle riders.

Now, you might actually get some motorcycle driving knitters to respond, but it is not going to be very targeted, or likely!

There are buyers, buyers everywhere…just make sure you look in the right places and fashion your advertisements accordingly so you have a concise call to action.

Make the viewer click that banner or pick up there phone to call you because you are offering them something of value that they apparently can not live without at that point in their lives.

Think back to a few days ago, when we talked about lesson three and having your own product (read below as I have included the past episodes in this series)

If you have seen “The Field of Dreams” movie with Kevin Costner from years ago, “build it and they’ll come!”

Now this is not true in the sense of set it and forget it.  You have to apply what you learned over the past couple days to continue the flow of traffic to your site.

If you have the right information, they will want it would be a more appropriate phrase here perhaps.

So with that, I will cut this episode short so that you can build it yourself.  Your assignment is to find some niche specific places that you can put your advertisement.

This may seem somewhat similar to your assignment from the other day and that is ok and a reminder that many things you do will overlap and be related to helping your business grow.

You will also start to realize by now which sites might be of more value to you versus others.

When we get back together for tomorrow’s lessons you will learn how to Suck the entrepreneurial spirit out of a prospect!

Wow, doesn’t that sound exciting!

Until then, drive traffic anyway you can to anyone you can!  They are everywhere…

Membership List Traffic and Multiple streams of traffic for your website

Lesson #4 of 8: Valuable Traffic and sleeping well

SO are you thinking, how do I come up with my own product in one night? (after reading yesterdays email (included below!)

As I alluded to, it is not something that has to be epic, but something of value.

As I was reminded through some audio’s I was listening to on my ride today.  It doesn’t have to be good…

…It has to be good enough!

You can Take Action, Revise Later (TARL!)

When you get things moving you put yourself above the rest, who sit there and wait for something to magically happen.

I am not going to sugarcoat anything for your here as this is never going to happen!

You need to put effort in and today we want to talk about how you can do that and get the most valuable traffic…and sleep well at the same time.

Now the latter above is the important one, as I still put in many a late night these days, but it is getting better.

Before I forget though, I just had someone sign up for Daegan Smith’s Online Traffic Revolution Webinar as apparently it is still up.

You might want to try to see if you can check out the whole thing yourself as I am giving you my take on his webinar with this series of 8 lessons over the next few days.

Anyways…..Lesson #4 deals with the Best Traffic and how you can sleep well at night.

Now assuming you have put some effort in towards lessons, 1-3, you may have some leads already coming into your website.

You want more though so do not lost track of what we learned the other day (again, see below for the previous emails in case you missed them)

Lesson 4 is actually broken down into two parts

4A) The best traffic comes from your own list: This is also your most valuable traffic.

Suppose for a minute you have a list you have been sharing quality content with for a while.

When you get your report going, who do you think will be the most receptive at checking it out for you first….Your list of course.

Suppose you find a product (That you own of course) that you want to promote or even better yet, endorse, then your list is the group that will be the warmest to test out.

For example, I told you last week about the Traffic Generation Club that I am a member of and offered you a Silver level membership with.

I had 20 people from my list take me up on that within a few days.  Before I started taking Daegan’s course, I might not have had 20 people sign up in a whole year.

The magic is starting to work with me for sure.

Because I bust my tail to make sure it does!

If you missed last weeks emails, make sure you check out the traffic generation club, which features audio, video and pdf from the mastermind group of Ewen Chia, Robert Puddy, Mark Joyner, Michael Cheney and many more.

Now there was some confusion (short info then we will get to Lesson 4B) for those signing up so hopefully this will clear the air and make sure you get in correctly.

When you sign up you will see a special offer, which I highly suggest you pick up to help you run your business.

After this or if you decide not to pick it up, when you click on the “no Thanks’ link, you will then be able to register for the complimentary Silver level membership which retails at $27, but I am giving to your as a bonus for being a subscriber of mine.

Back to the lesson!

so on top of keeping your own list satisfied, you want to make sure you do it from everywhere.

Now what do I mean from this?

something you may have heard before, where you are able to tap into as many avenues of traffic as possible…

…Multiple streams of income!

That is right, Lesson 4B states that “multiple streams of traffic make you sleep well at night!

What exactly does this mean.

It is kind of like investment philosophy where you do not put all your eggs into one basket.

The same holds true for generating traffic online and offline.

Do not rely on any one source of traffic!

If you only have one source and it fails, or gets blocked or shut down, you are screwed.

You may have heard of people being Google Slapped before and there accounts were shut down without warning.


Time to start over again.

The do or die situation just went south!

You mist diversify in order to continue to grow!

Whether you are talking a stock portfolio or traffic generation, you need to do the same.

Have multiple avenues to balance out your chances should something bad happen.

In addition to these, Daegan Smith mentioned some crazy statistics in regards to email!

He tries to email his list at least twice a day!

Being in contact with someone more often has kept them wanting more and waiting for that next email.

He said his traffic doubled and then tripled with this happening!

You might think it would do the opposite, but no!

The guy has it figured out!

So to wrap it up and give you a little assignment to work on for tomorrow!

Come up with a list of 5 (small) sites/ways you can diversify your traffic and put your thoughts into actions by getting some of this traffic to flow to you.

Some suggestions might be blog/forum comments, article writing etc.

Once you have the list, go do something on each one of these that you mentioned and start building a back links to your site.

Hint…If you can find .edu, .org etc., blogs they have been found to hold more weight to the search engines and will have good value sending the link back to you.

When you get your message from me tomorrow…You will learn where we find the right buyers!

Traffic and your own product equals freedom from your job

Lesson #3 of 8: Freedom from your job

Traffic + Your Own Product= Freedom from your Job

When we last left off, I was letting you know how to take your traffic and grow it by factors with advertising co-ops.

I have included both lessons #1 and #2 below, so you can leave comments

Lesson 1:

Lesson 2:

Remember, when you leave a link on a blog with quality content/responses, the admin are more likely to approve them….

…which puts a backlink back to your site.

This is good news for your website.

Now this is like a mini version of the endorsed traffic I mentioned in lesson one and is an easy way to quickly spread your content around the web to niche specific websites, where other people who are interested in the topic come to read and share ideas.

So today, we are going to talk about the importance of gaining Freedom from your Job.

“Traffic + Your own product= Freedom from your job”

Conquering lessons #1 and #2 may seem like daunting tasks, but they have to happen and are something you will build upon forever.

You will most likely see this theme continue as long as you work online.

You can not just set it and forget it for the most part.

For example, most websites do not generate traffic just because they are live…You need to work on them and bring traffic to them, whether free or paid.

A great way to do that is by making a product that solves peoples problems.

ANytime you can solve someone’s problems you will be considered golden.  People will start to flock to you as well a recommend you to others.

Now the product, just like your traffic can be free or paid as well.  Do not freak out thinking you have to have a ton of training available and ready to go when you launch either.

You might just have a 10 page ebook in your niche that goes into detail some major issues you have noticed lately and how to avoid them from the novice to the newbie.

If you wanted more or a larger group membership, you could apply the first few sessions of training and continue to make the rest up as the weeks progress.

As I have heard, you only need to make enough content to get you throuhg the next week.

Then you have 7 days to make the following content if you promised them a new training every 7 days etc.

Suppose you have a once a month site, this would give you even more time to put your content together.

Assuming you have this model, one would expect the quality to be a little more indepth with this model due to the longer time to create as well as the more time expected for the subscribers to learn or train themselves.

So overall, when you have something of your own that you can offer a person, you have a better way to get them to opt into your site.

An ethical bribe may occur where you promise a viewer a report for filling in their contact information.

Once they opt in you could then offer them a OTO, or a one time offer….

…Just like I offered you when you joined this email list…


You continue to feed them content through emails and later offer the upgraded course or content you have or end up creating.

To wrap up then, “Traffic and your own product = Freedom from Job!”

So act today and create that first product of yours in a niche you are passionate about and start driving traffic to your site to build that list.

And get ready for tomorrow when we show you how to sleep well at night and where your most valuable traffic comes from.

To your product creation!

Advertising Co-Ops grow your traffic by factors

Lesson #2 of 8: Co-Ops grow your traffic by factors

If you remember our previous post, we were talking about the right traffic and endorsed traffic.

See the other message here:

Getting your stuff on other peoples networks and having them do much of the work for you.

So today we are going to talk about lesson #2 and how it make help your budget complaints dwindle.

This lesson will also help you grow your traffic by factors as Daegan Smith puts it.

What is it you might ask that allows you to save money and grow your traffic exponentially…


For example, an ad Co-Op.

How these work are pretty simple.

You do have to have software capable of rotating affiliate links with your group so do some research into what would work best for you.

Check out for an idea where you could make this work.  I have no affiliate with these guys whatsoever…

Anyway, back to how a Co-Op works

What you do is get a group of people with like minded interest , for example those that all below to the same forum, membership group or even facebook group who want to run an ad together.

Now you have heard the expression, the sum is greater than all of it’s parts correct?

Sort of like, two people can get more done in one day that you might be able to get done by yourself in two days.  Both might be 16 hours worth of labor completed, but the group will most likely come out on top.

The same holds true for an Ad Co-Op.

When you have multiple people helping each other out their sum total is going to be greater here.

Each member buys into the Co-Op with a small entry fee, say $100 for starters, which is a good basis for someone on a limited budget in regards to what they can spend per month on advertising.

$100 might not get you very far by yourself, though when I have 10 people working together, I now have $1000 to put into an advertising campaign.

This is where the increase in factors occurs.

Let’s say you can only do traffic to one place like Facebook or Google, now you will be able to spread your links to more locations.

Another possibility is that now you can reach higher quality traffic by possiblu submitting an ad to an actual print newsletter like “Target Marketing” or some other Journal.

Keep in mind you will be sharing the traffic, and also that you are now in more places.

And it is going to be targeted assuming it is set up the correct way.

I hope you can see the value presented here and your homework assignment is go back to the groups you were talking with yesterday and ask them a simple question…

Are you interested in forming an ad co-op.

Anyway you can increase traffic to your sites, the better off you will be.

And as a reminder of yesterday’s email, getting the right traffic is like magic!

So head out and get in touch with some people today to start a Co-op!

And on that note, I am going to ask you to get in touch with me as well if you are interested in a co-op!

We would need to settle on one common area or thing we point our ad to and there are some good ideas I have in mind which you can see below.

1) Join me as a partner with Daegan Smith and we can co-op our affiliate ads with him (FREE)

2) Join me at GVO Host Then Profits or Meet Cheap and we can also co-op our ads with these guys (you need to be a paying member with these marketing tools necessary for building a business at $10 a month)

A) Host then profits:

B) Meet Cheap:

Join me in all three spots and I will reward you handsomely with some great bonuses and extra training. Just send me an email when you have joined so I can verify and get you going with the bonuses.

I will also be coming up with a website link/page that details more in regards to credits available and percentages of links forwarded to your affiliate link soon, so be on the look out for that in a future email.

So to wrap things up today, either get in touch with me after you join #1 and/or #2 above or get in touch with someone from a niche you are passionate about and take action!

Get going on the exponential growth factor that is available with a Co-op!

Tomorrow when we get into Lesson #3, we will be talking about Freedom from your JOB!

So get moving today!

Endorsed free traffic to your website is like magic

Lesson #1 of 8: The Right Traffic

This was just the beginning of what Daegan Smith shared with us on his recent webinar and I wanted to pass on some of this knowledge to you as well.

There were a few lessons Daegan shared with us and the first one is the idea of “the right traffic”

“The right traffic is like magic”

Just like the idea presented yesterday, being able to get the right “quality” traffic to your site is crucial.

I can suggest placing ads all over, but you want to make sure your ROI and EROI is as high as possible..This is the Return on Invesment and Energy Return on Investment.

If you were to just throw an ad up in the local newspaper for people looking for home businesses, it would not be targeted.

However if you put an article in a business journal or a niche related trade magazine, now you are getting in to the hands of people who are actually interested in the traffic.

“The right traffic is like magic”

So what I want you to do today is to find a blog, forum, newsletter or something similar in one niche that you are passionate about.

You need to contact them TODAY…

…and do what I mentioned yesterday in regards to one simple question.

You need ot ask them “what would it take for me to write a free article for them?”

What you end up with when they let you put stuff in their letter or blog, you get what is called “Endorsed Free Traffic” to your website or blog, which is like magic.

I would suggest doing this to a few places so the more places you have options of submitting to, the better.

Remember, in most cases, you should be able to submit an author bio with a link back to your website.

This is where the magic really begins.

Now I am not sure if Daegan’s whole webinar is still avialable or not, but you can try to see if you can still see the replay.  If the video and order form is still live, give it a try.

Otherwise, until tomorrow where we find out the next key lesson in the online traffic revolution.

Your hint is that it will be something to help you remove some budgetary constraints you may be experiencing.

To driving quality traffic!
