I highly recommend Kevin’s products. I’ve received review copies and even bought some of his products and every single one is filled with very detailed instructions to help even the most confused and tech-challenegd newbie succeed.
Hey, Stu here with another cool quick tip for you.
Have you ever heard the phrase “money loves speed”?
I believe it was made famous by the legendary marketer and copywriter, Dan Kennedy.
We all have our own different takes on what it means, and in this short video, you can hear what it means to me…
So how about you?
Do you make decisions fast and implement your ideas fast?
Or do you mull over it and think about all the ‘what ifs’ and… and eventually talk yourself out of it?
I hope you’re the former because like they say, “Money Loves Speed”.
When you get this concept, it’ll be a real “ah-hah” moment for you.
And I want you to remember it… and to use it in your business and in your life.
Use it right now if you’ve got something on your mind….
It could be that ebook or software you want to release
It could be that traffic source you want to try
It could be starting to blogging like a mad man
It could be making videos and posting them online
It could be to do something real crazy like asking a girl you like out on a date
It could be simply to change your attitude from thinking “I can’t” to having an “I can” attitude.
What ever it is that’s on your mind, you’ve probably stewed on in it enough.
You should “just do it” (like the Nike slogan says).
Or take the approach of “Ready, Fire, Aim”.
Just get your idea going. Good enough is good enough, and when you find a weak spot, fix it accordingly.
Opportunities come knocking all the time.
But have you got the mindset to notice them?
I’ve seen it in my business, (and my friend’s businesses)…
Results come when I’ve decided to do something and take action fast.
I always get results.
Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
The most important thing is to just get decide and get started. Get a result.
You can fix problems as they come to you. And a problem does not mean you’re a failure.
The only only mistake you can make is the mistake of not doing.
The longer you put off taking action, the longer you’ll get the exact same results you’re getting now.
If it’s a time-sensitive opportunity, you could miss it entirely.
So don’t think too much – Just Do It!
As you practice taking action when you get the initial inspiration and just go with it, and stick with it even if you come to a speed bump, you’ll gain momentum and result, money, success are soon to follow.
Did you know that Aweber charges you for all the leads they store.. including unsubscribers and inactive leads?
If you aren’t taking notice, your unsubscribers can build up and cost you every month. More marketers are becoming aware of this, but fewer know that inactive or ‘dead’ leads are just as bad as unsubscribers.There is a difference and I’ll show you.
Here’s a quick video I made about how to remove unsubscribers and inactive leads from your aweber lists.
You may be shocked to see how many subscribers are actually inactive*, like I was.. at first.
(* inactive = no email opens in 4 months (sidenote: Aweber counts an unopen as no open and no clicks – just make sure you’ve been using click tracking. )
But when you look at it, if you’re regularly getting only a 10% open rate, then you’re just removing the 90% who never open your emails.So you’re really not losing anything.
I recommend doing a list clean out regularly – every 3 to 4 months for free subscribers. I’m a little more protective of my customer lists… as I do get a better openct rate when compared to free subscribers .. but I do get the feeling they need regular cleaning out too.
So why do people unsubscribe and stop reading emails?
There are a few reasons…
Mostly, I put it down to the fact that most people just lose interest in whatever it is you’re sending them emails about.
In my case, most of my lists are in the ‘internet marketing’ niche, so there is also the fact that these people get bombarded with ‘make money’ emails everyday they soon get sick of it and go through deleting and sending to ‘spam’.. and once they do that, it’s the spam box from then onwards.
That’s why I tend to like double-optin (confirmed optin) better than single optin – particularly for free offers. (I stick customers on single optin because the systems I use collect their paypal email which is usually a real address and one they check.)
Why I Like Double Opt-In
When someone confirms their email address, they 1) have to find and open the email – usually requiring them to take it out of their spam box., 2) click on the link which shows to me they are an active email reader and clicker.
I admit I was doing single opt-in for about 12 months, after doing double opt-in ever since I got started in 2006, but have now switched back to double optin for the reasons I state above.
There is the never ending debate over single vs. double opt-in but and I see the benefits of both. But the way I understand it is that the leads who confirm their email are better quality.. and because Aweber cleans up the unconfirmed emails after 30 days, I don’t have to worry about dead leads piling up and paying for them.
How about you? Are you for single opt-in? Or double opt-in? Let the debate begin!
Ever get stuck when it comes to thinking up fresh new article titles? If you write a lot of articles, it can happen because you may often feel you’ve written on just about every topic under the sun on that topic and you just don’t know what to write about next.
If this is the case, here’s a cool little tip you can use to get article ideas fast and easily. This short little video explains it…
In this video: The video squeeze page template I’m using in this demo is from the Easy Traffic Videos course.
Note:Kompozer works well for most HTML squeeze pages and download pages, but it can mess up HTML code from time to time so you may want to use one like Edit Plus. Edit Plus isn’t a WYSIWYG editor, so you have to know a little HTML to use it.
This should make setting up your “thankyou” pages a bit easier!
