Holiday Links And Stuff

In my last post I said I was going to only have links to affiliates that are offering monthly online specials in some fashion today. Deals are what they are, and I’m not going to say which ones are great or not. However, I do participate with a lot of affiliates, which means there’s possibly something for everyone. And if not, skip this one and wait for the next post. Let’s see if this one time this blog makes any money off these things.

By the way, all of these links should be good through at least Christmas day, but if they’re not I’ll mention it. And I’m only putting ads that have holiday specials; all other specials need not apply. 😉 This means the list will be relatively short; trust me on that one.

Being In Heaven

If you loved the movie The Secret and you enjoyed the movie What The Bleep, and maybe enjoyed or heard in passing about a movie called The Opus, I think you might be ready for the latest installment in motivational movies.

It’s called Being In Heaven, and it’s the story about a guy who loses everything, then finds people to give him guidance as he finds his way out of all his problems. Not only does he find ways to make money, but ways to live a better life overall.

Once again, it’s an Australian film, and last October they actually showed the film all over the continent in movie theaters. They seem to do it right there, because they didn’t quite do that when The Secret came out, and I think people would have been blown away seeing it on the big screen; it blew me away watching on my own TV at home. Below is a trailer for the movie:

Anyway, you’re probably wondering what the banners are for. It seems that I’m on a mailing list of people who love motivational movies, and they actually wrote me and asked me if I’d like to be an affiliate for the movie. What kind of idiot would I be if I didn’t hop on that? If the trailer is enticing you, then you can click on the banner ad above or below and check it out.

Just so you know, you’re buying the movie from Australia, but when I bought The Secret I bought it from Australia as well, which is why I have the original instead of the one that’s in the stores here now; trust me, there are big differences in the two movies. I think y’all are going to enjoy this one; I’ve already ordered mine.

Zac Johnson’s Six Figure Affiliate Blogging – A Review

Back in May, I decided to download the free ebook by Zac Johnson called Six Figure Affiliate Blogging. I’ve been following Zac’s blog for almost 2 years and have enjoyed checking out his posts. I figured that it can’t hurt following a guy who has almost 14,000 subscribers, and I might even learn something some day. So, when I saw that he had an ebook, and that it was free, well, I figured I’d have to be an idiot not to download it. So, now I’m going to review the book for you.

It’s actually two books in one. The first 2/3rds of the book are Zac’s ideas on how one could possibly make money in blogging. The last 1/3rd of the book are interviews he conducted with some of the top earning bloggers out there, such as John Chow & Jeremy Shoemaker. It’s actually pretty neat reading, but of course that part won’t make you any money. However, I always find it intriguing seeing how other people got started in the business and achieved success, which is why I run interviews on two of my blogs.

Back to this book. You start off with a little history of Zac, and let’s just say he’s learned how to make money online. Then there’s a brief tutorial on what affiliate marketing is, what blogging is, selecting niches, hosting, etc. If you have any knowledge of this sort of thing already, as I did, you’re probably going to skim it and move on.

Something big that he talks about is branding, and one of his recommendations is paying someone to create a unique blog for you. It’s an interesting concept, something I can’t totally say I agree or disagree with overall, but I will say that having a unique design might pull in those people who first visit your site and entertain them for a short while. Long term I’m not so sure, but I guess it’s the idea of making a good first impression.

Then we have the concept of getting traffic to one’s blog, and of course he shares a lot of ideas there as well. I knew all of the ideas, but I have to admit that I haven’t put them all into place, so this is an area where some folks might gain something positive from reading it.

After that, and before the interviews, he gives you a lot of different types of ideas on how to make money on your blog, and he gives examples of what he and some other people have done in the past. There’s a lot here for novices, and even if you’ve been doing it for awhile if you’re not making a lot of money you might find something here. Of course Zac subscribes to the idea of creating email lists and using autoresponders, and indeed signing up for this ebook will put you on a mailing list and you’ll start getting some stuff for awhile. Still, it’s a free ebook, so one really can’t complain about it.

Had I written this review in May, I could have qualified for a contest he was running, but I decided to write it now so that it wouldn’t look like I was doing it just to enter a contest. If you’re new to the game, and you want to find out what it’s all about, this is an easy recommendation. If you’re someone who’s looking for ideas to kick start stuff, it’s worth reading as well. And even if you’re more experienced, if you’re not making lots of money with affiliate marketing, and trust me I’m not, then it’s worth reading to see if you can pick up a thing or two to use. I’m going to have to interview him one of these days, if he’s up to it.

How Do You Market Short Sales Products?

I’m actually putting a real question out to the masses (yup, y’all get to be the masses today) because I honestly don’t know what I could possibly do with this particular situation.

Most of you know that I’m hooked up with Commission Junction. The ads at the top and on the left side are CJ ads, and they rotate the banners each time someone stops by. And when you see products at the bottom of each post, most of them come from CJ as well.

One thing about some of the affiliate programs I participate with is that they send out regular emails talking about some of their promotions. Those that have a one month promotion are easy to deal with, because I have that sales page you see to the right with me holding the parrot that I update every couple of weeks with those types of things as they come. Those are fairly easy to handle.

The ones I’m having an issue with, and that I’m asking y’all how you’d handle them, are the advertisers that have sales that last anywhere from 24 to 72 hours only. These things come fast and furious, and sometimes the deals are pretty sweet. However, I do have other things to do, and having to go through all those emails every day, set up the code on the site, then go back and remove it during the same time period is overly cumbersome.

I had thought about popping those things onto this blog quickly, but my mind says that would degrade the quality of the blog, as who’d really want to see a post with only sales ads in it? I don’t think I’d want those things popping up in my reader all the time, even with big sales, because I doubt I’d be interested in every one of those products. I know some people might be, but I’m thinking that’s a bad way of handling things.

So, my issue is what to do with those things. Do I just ignore them and move on with my life? Do I create a blog where I can just pop those links in and go about my business? Do I try to find an hour every day to either pop new links in or remove old ones? How would you handle it?

Frank Kern’s Core Influence – The Beginning

My friend Kelvin swears by this guy named Frank Kern, who’s one of the top internet marketers in the world. I have to admit that I don’t know as much about him as I probably should. Anyway, Kelvin’s been trying to get me to look at this guy’s stuff for awhile now, and I’ve kind of poo-poo’d it off, not because I thought it was a sham or anything, but because time is not always my friend.

Anyway, I decided to finally follow him up on one of the links he provided where I could check out a short free video. It’s a link like this one, and let me get through this post before you think about clicking on it.

I clicked on the link and it took me to a 90 second video with Frank standing in front of water with waves splashing on the beach asking me to opt-in to this site so they can provide me with a link to a video. He also says I’ll have to do the double opt-in, as they’re going to send me an email so I can fully confirm.

That part is done, and now there’s a second page that comes up. Truthfully, as I write this, that’s where I am. There’s a short 2 1/2 minute video I’m supposed to watch first, then the main Core Influence video, which I guess is pretty long. Kelvin says it’s a great start and fully endorses it, so I figure I’ll go ahead and give it a shot. For full disclosure, by the time you read this I should have finished the video, as it’s the long holiday weekend here in the United States, and y’all know I write some of these ahead of time.

This means that at some future point I may have something more to say about it all. Now, about that link I gave you before. It turns out that there’s a Core Influence 2, and to get to see that you have to have at least 3 people click that link and decide they want to opt-in to see the original Core Influence video. Now, I’m not sure yet whether I’ll even want to see the second video, but you know, both videos are free, and it’s only the second video you have to do a little bit of work to see. So, if any of you are predisposed to click on that first link, all I’ll say is I’ve provided the conduit, and I’m good to go.
