Commission Bot Special Review

Commission Bot Special Review

Most of the reviews I found were just plugging the program, not necessarily giving it an objective review. So, I called this ‘Commission Bot Special Review’ because I think what I am writing is special – and I have to attract your attention somehow!

First off. I presume you are reading this because you want to know if Commission Bot is any good. The sales video is exceedingly long – which is an understatement. If you haven’t been able to watch it all, I suggest you do. Most is filler, but some of it is useful. Overlong nevertheless, in my opinion. Sorry, but I didn’t check the time – must be at least 30 minutes though.

Rasheed Ali comes across as a good guy, even though it’s an actor’s voice.

If you do decide to buy, go to the website and – close the tab. Yes, really! You will get a $10 discount straightaway as long as you click ‘stay on page’. (I do this all the time. Copy the url for those rare occasions when it doesn’t happen, but most times it does – sometimes you have to do 2 or more ‘exits’ but you will get the best deal possible.)

Back to Commission Bot. When I saw I could get it for $37 instead of $47, with a 60-day money back promise, I gave in. I love putting up websites and blogs and if it is as easy as this, it’s a no-brainer. (I recently joined ‘Free Monthly Websites’ and Skadoogle is really good as well. There are loads more, but I get along with these especially.)

It’s only once you have joined Commission Bot that you are told you get 10 licences. There’s a One Time Offer to upgrade to Pro to get a further 50, but that’s a whopping $197 (unless you do the little trick I mention above when that will go down somewhat). The offer is still available (at time of writing) once you login.

Here’s another interesting point: these are WordPress Blogs you are going to be setting up. I like WordPress, so that’s not a problem. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY A DOMAIN FOR EACH OF THEM. You can set them up in a directory or subdomain of your existing website if you want to. I found a good article which goes into a bit more detail about this here: http://www.dotster.com/blog/dotster/put-blog-domain/ And yes, you can set up a WordPress Blog in sub domains.

Each Commission Bot site license allows you to install on a single root domain + unlimited sub-domains. If you close or remove a site you will lose that licence, so you need to think carefully how you will manage your licences – even if you do have the 60. It looks as if they will let you change your mind before you set the site up though.

So, the only real thing you need to concern yourself with is the niche. And that’s a whole new article! There’s lots of advice about choosing niches in the site tools. (I prefer to use long-tail, not single words, as you want buyers and not to be on page 50 of the search results.)

You get links to ClickBank and Amazon, so you need accounts set up there, but it’s all explained in the tutorials and videos.

How easy is it to use in reality?

Very.

There are some things you need to consider: it’s going to take time to research your niche. I have Keyword Winner set up on one of my blogs, and I use that for my niche research. It doesn’t look for the keywords with the highest results as too many people will be promoting those. Buy it once, set it up on one blog and use that for your research.

The articles you select for your site will need a bit of re-writing – that’s going to take time. But Commission Bot has thought of that too and has software built in to help take the strain. Very clever. There’s also an Article Writer section so you can indeed write your own from scratch – or you can outsource them. While duplication may not be a problem with Google, sites like EzineArticles are very particular so be careful if you don’t want your membership suspended (been there and got the T-shirt!).

Don’t be put off if you see that you have to set up WordPress, upload plugins, use FTP etc – it’s all explained very well and once you’ve done the first one, it becomes easier. I’m doing it all the time!

So, there you have it.

If you have found this Commission Bot Special Review helpful and are going to join, then I’d appreciate it if you would go through my link. Thanks.

Why Are You Trying To Reinvent The Wheel?

Why Are You Trying To Reinvent The Wheel?

I’ll keep this simple…

You know the single most crippling mistake

that almost every beginning online marketer

makes?

Trying to blaze their own trail…

There are dozens of proven ways to make an

excellent living online… and yet so many

people insist on making it a lot harder

than it needs to be.

Look, you don’t get bonus points for

creativity in marketing… you just get

extra headaches and it takes longer before

you make money.

The pioneers are usually the ones with the

arrows in their back.

Why not just relax and do it the easy way?

=>=> http://budurl.com/gxm7

It used to be a long, grueling process to

put together a money-making online system.

* First, you had to design and create a

product that you hoped people would want

to buy.

* Then you had to write and design squeeze

pages, sales pages, order pages, and thank

you pages – format them and upload them

online.

* Next you had to write a series of email

autoresponders to promote your product.

* Finally, after all this you still had to

figure out how to get traffic to your

website.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a nice, complete

turn-key system that would do all this for

you?

Now there is…

=>=> http://budurl.com/gxm7

It’s true that the first online marketers

had to blaze a trail and do it the hard way.

But there’s no reason for you to work that

hard, when they’ve done most of the work for

you.

Just go to the link below and you’ll

immediately see what we mean.

Online advertising

(I’ve just brought this post over from my other blog as I’m changing the theme over there (lynda-hill.com). It was written in October 2008.

Yesterday I mentioned a new business opportunity called Succeed In 30 Days. Now I’m not going to go into that right now, but what I would like to do is mention how it has opened my eyes to a whole new way of advertising online.

The advertising needn’t be for businesses either; you can advertise anything and everything as long as it’s ‘legal, decent and honest’.

I’ve been using Pay Per Click for my business so far – which is another phrase for ‘Google Adwords’ and Yahoo Search. PPC is quite complicated to set up (until you learn how) and it can prove very expensive. A strange statistic is that Amit Mehta, one of the top Super Affiliate Marketers in the world is making $2.4 million a year right now – BUT – he’s paying anything from $5,000 per DAY on Google Adwords. Am I missing something? Simple statistical analysis makes me wonder if it’s worthwhile!

They say you have to pay money to make money and I understand that. I’m quite happy to pay my advertising fees, but sometimes setting up the right Keywords can be very complex – I won’t go into that now, other than to say that there’s a brand new program Pay Per Click Classroom 2.0 which has just been released (and it’s not expensive either). BTW, that’s not my affiliate link; I’ve decided not to join this time round as I have other projects I want to complete right now. I did learn a great deal just from watching the three pre-launch videos though. I digress.

The reason for this Blogpost is to mention the other advertising methods recommended by the Succeed In 30 Days program -and I’ll throw in a third as well.

Sometimes we see something but it doesn’t actually mean much. Then along comes someone else who says exactly the same thing and the penny drops!

Wealthy Affiliate University, of which I am a member, mentioned the first method, but I thought nothing of it. It’s USFreeAds.com. It’s an online classified ad system. Frankly I was amazed. The free option lets you run 2 ads at a time, but for the princely sum of $10 – PER YEAR – you can run up to 25 ads concurrently. These ads last 40 days and each one will automatically renew if you want it to. There is a lot moreof course, but I’ll leave it to you whether you click through.

The second method I’d heard about but hadn’t considered yet. It’s a means of getting an ad distributed via safelists to ezine readers. For $12.50 I set up an ad to go out to 100,000 readers. What’s good about safelists is that they have double opt-in subscribers – which means people want to get them. So you can be reasonably sure the ads will be seen. You just need to decide how much you want to pay. The program I was pointed to for this purpose is MBPAdvertising.com. Go check it out.

And what’s the third method?

It’s something I haven’t used for years because you can waste a lot of time surfing! It’s called TrafficSwarm and you can sign up for free. The idea behind it is that you view – ‘surf’ – the advertisers pages and earn credits, usually between 1 and 5, for each page you view. You need to stay on the page for 20 seconds before you click for the next one. As these credits build up you can use them to advertise your own site or sites. If you sign up (and pay) for the Pro version you get better deals. I think I must have done that years ago. I’d completely forgotten about TrafficSwarm, but I hadn’t closed my account, so imagine my surprise when they wouldn’t let me register a new account! The upshot is that I paid $40 to top up my account by 2,000 credits and they gave me 2,200 for being a Pro member. So far I have 5 of my websites being advertised.

So, there you are. Three different forms of advertising.

USFreeAds.com – for mainly classifieds

MBPAdvertising.com – for ezine ads, banner ads etc

TrafficSwarm – ad rotator for targeted readers

None of them is particularly expensive which is why I am more than happy to recommend them to you.

Let’s see what I come up with in my next Blogpost.

‘Bye for now

Affiliate Espionage – A New Way to Succeed with Pay Per Click Marketing

Affiliate Espionage – A New Way to Succeed with Pay Per Click Marketing

Affiliate Espionage is the companion product to have for finding markets, researching the competition and creating keyword campaigns for your pay per click endeavours.

As a plugin for the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Affiliate Espionage is very simple to install.  It makes researching keywords, competitors and markets for your pay per click campaigns many times faster and easier than many other products on the market. The reason that it makes this research a faster and easier process is that it places all the information that is needed to enter these markets within the search results page.

If you have used the Firefox plugin ‘SEO for Firefox’ to get essential page rank information or find out how many page links a website has when you conduct a search, you will have a good idea how this software would look once installed.  If you don’t already use the Mozilla Firefox browser and have this free plugin you are really missing out on an enhanced internet experience.

The essence of Affiliate Espionage is that it actually finds out for you, once you set it up, which pay per click campaigns are successful on particular selected keywords.


Once you know which pay per click ads are successful, there are all sorts of ‘essential’ data that Affiliate Espionage lays out on a plate for you, like the ad history, where you can see a summary of the ads that a particular competitor uses, and the actual keywords that they are bidding on.  That information is going to be very useful in future PPC campaigns.

Another feature that is easily adapted into your market research is that you can see whether the links that are being promoted on the pay per click ads are affiliate links.  Then the software will further break this down into whether these affiliate links are via a landing page campaign or a direct link campaign.  All of this information is going to be sucked up like a hoover on heat to make my next pay per click campaign a success, just like the successful advertisers that Affiliate Espionage has exposed to me.

Software like this sounds too good to be true, right? Affiliate Espionage is not perfect it has some negatives.

It’s only available on the Mozilla Firefox browser, which is free so it’s not really a negative, but a reason to download this browser if you have not done so already.

You can use it to generate data from Google, MSN & Yahoo, but some of the data is limited to Google.  However it’s the biggest search engine in the world, and you could apply what you learn there to other pay per click search engines.

The information that Affiliate Espionage shows is basic compared to some other market research tools.  The software shows you all the information you need to enter a market with a successful pay per click campaign, without all the additional gumph and noise that traditional research tools come with.

Overall, this product has changed my opinion of pay per click marketing for the better, as I now use pay per click campaigns as an integral part of my internet business, whereas once I was terrified of them.  This tool allows you to see success and emulate it.
