A few weeks ago, on my other blog, I wrote a post called “Snobbiness = Sales?”. In that post, I shared with you a recent conversation that I had with my coaching partner, Henry Gold.
In that post, I asked the question:
Not only did I tell you about Henry Gold being a snob,
I didn’t realize that blog post would open up such a can of worms!
Immediately after I wrote it, Terry Dean came back to my blog and wrote a great comment. (Thanks Terry!)
A day or so later, Henry Gold put a post on his blog about the article. And yesterday, Henry blogged about it again.
And that’s just the people who made their comments public! That doesn’t even take into consideration all of the people who phoned me, emailed me, etc. to talk about that post.
Do you see how one little conversation between two friends quickly spread, not just to a few other people, but to literally THOUSANDS of readers, all through just a few simple blog posts?
That’s the power of BLOGS !
What else are blogs good for?
Blogs are great for SO many reasons!
- Blogs allow you to build a MUCH stronger relationship with your visitors than any other type of site. (Not only that, but they will become much more loyal customers eventually as well.)
- Blogs allow you to drive MUCH more traffic than you can with just about any other type of medium. (Ok, I did a call with Frank Sousa the other night and he’s pretty much convinced me that Traffic Geyser can get you more traffic than any blog ever could. But with the exception of Traffic Geyser, blogs win, hands down!)
- Blogs can be even used to build Joint Ventures for TRAFFIC GENERATION! (Now there’s a REALLY unique idea, right?)
Let me explain #3 to you further, because it’s an idea that I think would be a LOT of fun, could get a TON of traffic, and would make blogging a lot less work.
Imagine this …
- You’re a newbie affiliate marketer.
- You don’t have any products.
- You don’t have many technical skills.
- You’re going crazy trying to keep your head above water.
You probably have either:
a) Avoided the whole subject of organizing Joint Ventures because they don’t apply to you, or
b) You started a blog, wrote your first post, never got a visitor and gave up, or
c) Both a & b above.
(Am I getting even warmer yet?)
How could doing either a joint venture OR a blog really help you?
Let me ask you one more question …
If I told you that there was a way that you could increase the number of visitors that you’d get by 500%, and yet you’d be able to do this with 1/4 the amount of work, would you believe me?
Now you’re probably thinking that I am totally off my rocker, right?
Well listen up because that is really TRUE!
Prepare to be AMAZED how wrong you’ve been about both joint ventures AND blogs!
You see, a Joint Venture is merely two or more persons or entities coming together to meet a mutually beneficial business goal. There is absolutely no reason that a joint venture needs to be just for a product launch.
There is no reason whatsoever that a joint venture should not be used for driving traffic or a myriad of other tasks that an affiliate marketer must undertake every day.
And blogging? Well, blogs really do help you build much bigger, much more responsive lists, much faster than almost any other list building method.
Here’s what you could do …
Go and find yourself a small group of affiliate marketers who could become your Joint Venture Partners.
Get them to each agree to write 3 to 5 blog posts per week.
Each of you would get your own “Category” on the blog (see the topics over in that right column? Those are “Categories”.)
On the “About” page of the blog, put up each of your pictures and underneath, each of your names. Then link each one to it’s own page. On the individual pages, talk about the author and at the top of the page, put in a newsletter subscribe box so that the visitor could get on that affiliates list.
In the sidebar, under a general “Subscribe” box where the reader can subscribe to the blog itself, put up a picture of your product. Using a special WordPress plugin, you can display a separate plugin on each category. For each of the JV Partners, then, you simply add their product to their individual category.
Each time one of the JV Partners puts up a new post, ALL of the affiliates in the group add that post to their individual social bookmarking accounts. That way, you can get even more traffic to the blog on a regular basis.
How many visitors could this joint effort drive?
Well, for each blog post that you put up & each add to a social bookmarking account, you should expect to get between 50 and 75 visitors. If you EACH add it to your account, just multiply that number by the number of people in your group.
If you have 5 people, that would mean that each post could get you 250+ visitors.
And, if each of you writes 3 to 5 posts per week, that would give you a total of 15 to 25 posts per week. If each of you bookmarks every one of these posts, that would bring you at least 750 to 1,250 visitors PER WEEK!
And that’s if you only add each post to ONE social bookmarking site. You should be adding them all to at least 4 sites (these are digg, delicious, technorati, and Stumble Upon). If you do the math, that means you can expect to get 3,000 to 5,000 visitors EVERY WEEK !
Now, let’s compare this to what you can do on your own.
If you wrote that same 3 to 5 posts per week, added each one to your own account at 4 social bookmarking sites, you would get only 600 to 1,000 posts per week. And you’d be doing the same amount of work!
What would be stopping you from stepping a little outside your comfort zone and try this for yourself?
I can hear the excuses now …
You don’t know how to setup WordPress. Ok, then go to http://www.thejv-press.com. This is a site that one of my partners, Kai put up for our subscribers and readers. We will GIVE YOU a WordPress blog, complete with all of the plugins you’ll need to do all of the cool things I’ve talked about already installed! She’s even included 35+ themes to make your blog look good. Just sign up, log in, and start blogging!
You don’t know how to drive traffic to a blog. Ok, I’ve got you covered there, too. (More on that in a minute.)
You don’t know how to build a joint venture or to find JV Partners. (That is the easiest part of this whole system!)
What if I told you that there was a brand new package coming out that taught you not only how to build million dollar joint ventures very quickly and easily, but that it also came with a BONUS package on using Blogs for JV Success?
And, what if I told you that if you get in before it is fully released next Monday, you could get it for less than 1/2 price?
I’d bet that you wouldn’t just click over to the link, you’d FLY over to it if you could, RIGHT?
Well then, I guess I’d better wish you Abundant Success with Your Blogging Now, because in a minute, I imagine you’ll be off and soaring …
Especially when you find out that the package comes with step by step checklists, audios, videos, a multi-media ebook, flowcharts, and, believe it or not, even MORE !
I’ve taken 3 separate packages and rolled them all up into one super gargantuan grand package called the “Secrets of the JV Queen”. You’ll find all the details at:
One word of warning though — this special is ONLY being made because I need some testimonials for my sales letter. Once the final package is ready, I will be brining the price back up to it’s regular introductory price. I expect that will happen sometime over the weekend.
In the meantime, you will get a very substantial portion of the package immediately upon your purchase. That will take you at least 12 hours to go through. Then, when the balance of the package is ready, I’ll send you an email and let you know to come and download the rest of it.
You’ve heard me say this before, but I think I had better say it one more time …
The one thing that matters most to your success is that you take ACTION! With this package, literally every roadblock to your joint venture success has been lifted. Heck, even every roadblock to your blogging success has been removed as well.
I can’t wait to see the results that you get when you take massive action!
To Your Abundant Online Success!
