Clickbank Code Review

Clickbank Code Review

Now that I’ve gotten serious about really trying to make an effort to maximize all of my online income streams, I figured it was about time to venture into affiliate marketing, and more specifically, marketing products from Clickbank.

While I had known about Clickbank for some time, I was definitely intimidated by it because, to be quite honest, I didn’t even really know where to begin.  That’s why Clickbank Code is such a helpful product.

After doing some research, I decided to check out Clickbank Code, a new product from Michael Jones that shows in a step-by-step manner how to quickly get affiliate sites up and running and leverage Clickbank so that you can start making money in a matter of days.

Clickbank Code, clickbank code review, click bank code, click bank code reviewIf you haven’t heard of Michael Jones, you’d better get used to the name, as he was able to turn himself from a relative newbie into someone making nearly $50,000 per month using the steps he outlines in Clickbank Code.  Considering I’d be happy at just 10% of that success, I figured I’d give it a try!

In Clickbank Code, Michael Jones goes into detail about how to:

  • find the hottest and best selling digital products on Clickbank
  • leverage free search engine traffic to maximize your profits
  • use social media to drive targeted BUYERS to your sites
  • track your campaigns to maximize the most profitable ones and ditch the duds

Clickbank Code is different from another learn affiliate marketing program I recently reviewed, Affiliate Classroom 2.0, in the sense that it is more of a “paint by numbers” sort of program, meaning it gives you a step by step process.  In Affiliate Classroom 2.0 you’re given a whole bunch of lessons that allow you to sort of figure out affiliate marketing on your own.

For me personally, I do better with the step by step process because I just want to hit the ground running.  Don’t get me wrong, Affiliate Classroom 2.0 is a great system and I learned a lot from it, but in terms of learning how to quickly get cash coming in from affiliate marketing (specifically from Clickbank) I thought Clickbank Code was more along the lines of what I would need to succeed.

If you’re serious about making money from Clickbank, buying the Clickbank Code program (as well as many of the extras) will be an amazing investment for you.

Cell Phone Cash Review

Cell Phone Cash Review

About a week ago I received in interesting email telling me about a new product from Mack Michaels of Maverick Coaching that was going to revolutionize affiliate and product marketing.  The product, Cell Phone Cash, was something that had yet to hit the mainstream, and was certainly a very interesting idea.

After checking out the product’s website, I saw the beauty of the program, was immediately hooked on the idea, which is why I’ve written this Cell Phone Cash review!

The Cell Phone Cash program walks you through a step by step method to marketing your site and affiliate offers on cell phones as opposed to the usual SEO and PPC methods.

Cell Phone Cash, cell phone cash review, cell phone cash reviewsAs many of you know, PPC and SEO marketing are pretty saturated.  There are thousands of people out there, competing in the same space for the same keywords and products.  In sort, it’s very tough to be successful and profitable using these tactics.

However, cell phone marketing is relatively new, the market is completely untapped, and your customer base is actually LARGER than your internet customer base.  Cell Phone Cash teaches you how to take advantage of this and how to make some serious money.

(Just for a point of reference, Mach Michaels makes over $300,000 PER MONTH using these tactics.  Although, let’s be honest, it would be tough for any of us to ever replicate that level of success.)

There are nearly 3 billion people around the globe have a cell phone, and that number is expected to grow to 4 billion by 2011.  Each person, on average checks it 24 times per day, so that’s a lot of opportunities to get your product or affiliate offer out to people.

And since the price is only $24 per month, I definitely recommend that you go pick up Cell Phone Cash.

I was very skeptical at the idea at first, but now I believe Cell Phone Cash could become one of the best investments you’ve ever made.

Hopefully this Cell Phone Cash review has been beneficial and helped  you make the right decision for you!

Is Twitter Really Worth the Effort?

Over the past several months I’ve really started to pay attention to social media and networking and how they can be utilized to help build a brand and drive traffic to my websites.  Considering all of the major social media sites are free and have millions of users, harnessing their “power” is pretty important if you’re trying to make money online.

One of the fastest growing social media sites is Twitter, which currently has between 5M and 20M users, depending on your source.  (Kind of a wide discrepancy, don’t you think?)  No matter the current number, Twitter is still experiencing massive month-over-month growth.

With such a large and growing user base, Twitter has become a powerful marketing tool for many of us in the internet marketing game, especially those of us who are fortunate enough to have a lengthy list of followers.

Top 3 Ways Digg has Jumped the Shark

As I expected, yesterday’s post regarding my thoughts on Digg becoming nothing more than a bad high school clique was a pretty big hit.  Within 8 hours of submitting, it had received over 250 Diggs, was listed as the top upcoming story and, judging by the comments on Digg, was causing quite a stir.

It also disappeared for no apparent reason.

So, rather than be discouraged, I thought I’d pick up right where I left off and write another post on ways Digg has “jumped the shark,” which of course is in reference to the popular term (God, that made me sound so old) meaning where things started going downhill.

(As a side note, be sure to check out Jump The Shark.  It’s a great waste of time.)

So, without further adieu, here are the Top 3 Ways Digg has Jumped the Share:

1) THE SHOUT SYSTEM

Before Digg sold out and added the shout system, submissions had to be discovered through either browsing Digg’s upcoming sections, or by checking out what your friends had submitted.  Either way you found the story, you had to be actively searching for stuff to Digg.

When the shout system came along, all of this went out the window.  Yes, you can still do your Digging the old fashioned way – but on top of that, you now have submissions being jammed down your throat by overzealous shouters.  I know because I used to be one of them.

The shout system really goes against everything that Digg originally “stood for” because it has essentially done nothing but promote “blind Digging.”  What I mean by this is you Digg a story not based on whether or not it was a good submission, or because you want to bookmark it for later reading, but simply because you’ve been asked to Digg the shout.

I’m sure there are a lot of Digg users who ignore most of their shouts, however, there are still plenty of users you try and shout everything that comes their way.  This is probably based in the fear that if they don’t Digg, they’ll lose friends and be relegated to Digg’s black holes – after all, it’s widely believed that the best way to get submissions promoted is to not only add lots of friends, but the “right friends,” i.e. the power users.

This leads me to my next way Digg has jumped the shark –

2) BEFRIENDING THE POWER USERS

Full disclosure – I have no proof that any of Digg’s so called “power users” are doing anything wrong.

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, it’s pretty obvious they (meaning the power users) have to be up to something fishy and/or in cahoots with Digg administrators.  What else explains the fact that front page stories generally come from the same 25 or so users?  I really can’t think of anything.

Since Digg was founded as and gained massive popularity for being a social site, shouldn’t the main social circle consist of more than the same 25 users?  By allowing itself to become dominated by the power users – therefore moving away from its roots – the “Digg experience” has become an exercise in futility for a vast majority of everyday users.

Now, I can’t speak for everyone, but I don’t have any grand illusions that ALL of my submissions should hit the front page – however, I’d probably be a much more active user if I felt I stood a shot to get one up every once in a while.

3) GOING CORPORATE

One of the things that first, I guess for lack of a better word, attracted me to Digg was the fact that it was sort of a grass roots site, meaning as long as you submitted good content, you stood a shot of getting up on the front page.  It didn’t matter if the submission was an article from CNN or if it was just some interesting post from a random blog – good content was good content.

Now, not only do the power users dominate the front page, but so too do the same websites.  Cracked, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Think Progress, Tech Crunch, NY Times, Time, Telegraph – these sites completely dominate the front page.  Anything non-corporate doesn’t stand a chance, no matter how good the submission.

Again, I’m not saying that every Tom, Dick and Harry with a blog should get every submission up on Digg’s front page, but at the same time, if they a quality article is submitted from their site, shouldn’t it at least have a fighting chance?

NOW WHAT?

Here’s what will happen next, if everything goes as I expect:

  1. I’m going to submit this to Digg, with an incendiary description
  2. It’s going to get other users like me riled up
  3. The submission will get over 300 Diggs
  4. The submission will then disappear never to see the light of day
  5. When I wake up and check my account tomorrow, it will have been suspended

So, on that note – happy Digging!
