It has now been over a year and a half since I embarked on this journey with affiliate marketing and building my own online business.
It has been a long ride and I have been working full time on building my business (quite obsessively) but I am happy to say I am living the life now that many can only dream about.
I get to work on my business anytime, anywhere but most importantly I am there for my family 24/7.
For those just starting out or looking at affiliate marketing it can be daunting and confusing wondering where to start.
I’ve done a video for those starting out on just exactly what is affiliate marketing and how to find products for you to promote. I have only mentioned one network, Clickbank but there are a lot of other Affiliate Networks that you can join which I will cover in later video.
When you are marketing your business online, link tracking is very important because you want to see your return of investment for your online marketing campaigns.
You want to make sure that you are optimising your campaigns so you are getting the most results for the least amount of spend. Plus you also want to see what ads or traffic is bringing in the most sales or leads.
ClickMagick is by far the easiest to use out of all the tracking software available and it provides so many features making it the most cost effective solution (far below it’s monthly cost).
When you set up tracking links you can see what links are getting clicks and how many. Every ad should have a unique link so you can see which one is working best.
Unlike with most other trackers, ClickMagick allows you to easily track entire marketing funnels starting with the first opt-in all the way to the last upsell or downsell. It can even track clicks from your follow-up emails and attribute any resulting actions or sales to the proper sales funnel – giving you the most accurate stats possible.
I have been testing ClickMagick for a few months now and I don’t know where I would be without it. Not only does it track my advertising but will even tell me what keywords and ads are creating the clicks.
Split testing, rotators, retargeting, geotargeting, traffic quality and popups are just a few Clickmagick’s other features that I am using on a regular basis.
I have not even got through all the features of the this cloud based product but I must say I am loving it and will continue using as one of my core applications in my business.
I have a better understanding of my campaigns, am easily able to adjust, tweak and monitor and my ROI’s have definitely improved.
Mint’s App 2.0 was released 2 weeks ago and I have had a great time using the software for some of my customers and I must say it does create more interaction with customers and prospects!
So what is Mints App 2.0? This software enables you to create polls, quizzes and surveys and post on social media and on your website. What you can do is get the customer interacting with your business and find out what are their likes and habits.
Mints App takes a step further where you can create multiple questions, offer bonuses, create competitions and also capture leads!
Here are some examples I have created this week. This was done for a real estate agent for her Facebook page. The first post was this…..
If they clicked yes the next pop up was…
Asking the potential customer to enter their detail to find out their current home value.
The results are in and after only a week she already has 8 new leads. This is from her current customer base. She would not have known that these people were looking at selling their houses if she hadn’t had the poll there.
The possibilities are endless on what you can ask your customers. You can make the polls fun, entertaining, ask subtle questions about colors, styles, design or even who is going to win the next sports game.
What this software allows you to do is interact more with your customers on your website and social media and capture valuable information.
If you are struggling with interaction or engagement with your customers then Mint’s App is the software you need.
Build customer funnels in minutes. Any niche, any business model you can engage new and existing customers more effectively.
I highly recommend Mints App! A software I will be using on a daily basis.
Content is Key – Remember to keep your content interesting to the niche that you are in. As a rule of thumb I recommend 80% useful content and 20% sales pitch. This content can be anything from polls, surveys, or questions for you to find out what it is your customers want and what are their habits. The content can also include useful tips and information that is relevant to your niche.
Videos – Videos are something that not everyone is doing. Videos show you as person and show your personality and passion for your product, service and business. You can also use suppliers videos on product as well is you don’t want to make your own.
Do you sell local? – If you sell locally include on your page things that are interesting to the community. This can be charity events, school activities, sports events. Show that you are involved in the local community.
Images – Post images of you, your team or photos of happy customers.
Sign Up – Have a sign up link so customers can subscribe to receive emails or newsletters from you.
Competitions – Competitions are a great way to get your fan base interacting.
Lastly I want to touch on Facebook advertising. If you have never used Facebook advertising before it can be a bit daunting, but Facebook advertising can be extremely profitable. Did you know you can drill right down to peoples interests and demographics so you can really narrow your target audience to get the most from your campaigns.
