A New Plan for 2014

It’s been a year since I updated my blog!
I’ve not being doing much interent marketing other than a joint product which should launch soon and sending out a few emails, as there’s been a lot going on elsewhere. (I have a one year old daughter, a printing business and a property business).

As I haven’t been monitioring my blog for a while I have 2819 comments and they all look like spam (even though I have Akismet installed) so I’ve had to use a bulk comment remover plugin to remove them all .

Anyway I’ve come up with a new online plan for 2014, which I think anyone can do.


I’m building a new reviews blog where traffic from either search engines or emails will then be able to see various different offers instead of just mailing out one. This brings in sales of different offers as people browse the site and is already working. Each time I recommend a product by email I will also add a review to the site.
The base site is here http://improductsexposed.com/
There are sub-domains for each topic. The one with most in so far is the Solo Ads section  http://soloads.improductsexposed.com/
These will all be interlinked at a later date.


The other part of my plan is building a new funnel to use with solo ads. This will recycle some of my existing products.
The squeeze page will be for a report in the ‘make money online’ niche followed by various upsells. Initially these will be via an affiliate link so I can sert it up fairly fast.
The first squeeze page will have an exit pop going to a second for a traffic report (I’ll be using my Traffic Tornados report).
Both optins will have auto responder sequences in place.

The overall plan combines ideas from several WSOs with a few of my own thrown in.

I’ll post updates as I develop and test this out.

What do you think of the plan, and is it something you’d like to do yourself?

What Are Your Plans For 2013

I’m very late with my first post of 2013, but a lot has happened since my last post in November 2012.

Here’s a clue 🙂

Yes, my daughter Tara-Kayleigh was born at the end of November 2012 🙂  so she’s now nearly 4 months old. Read the rest of this entry

Simple Traffic Solutions Bonus

{ Updated 9th Nov} – NB The original Bonuses have now all gone and a different one is now on offer

I made a crazy offer to my subscribers a few days ago – co-host your own JV Giveaway for under $5.   Most JV Giveaway Events get at least a few hundred subscribers – has to be worth a lot more than $5!


Needless to say people grabbed this offer fast and the 50 I offered are nearly gone already.

I set this up as a special bonus for John Thornhill’s Simple Traffic Solutions  –  incredible value at just $4.95 for a comprehensive traffic course!

I didnt want to just offer a ton of digital downloads – I want to give something unique and useful, like getting you a list of hundreds of subscribers for free, and severla other JV Giveaway related bonuses.

This is a win-win offer.  You build a list, and I get on John’s leaderboard 🙂

The bonus is delivered mainly through a secret Facebook group and this is a great chance to network with other marketers and build relationships for the future.

I have to put a lot of work into setting up all the events so this does have to be limited – the only way I could offer more is if some remain unclaimed.

Don’t miss out.

Here’s the bonus page again:

New JV Giveaways

Following the success of my last JV Giveaway (The Original Products Giveaway eBook Special) which had over 1500 signups I’m going straight into my next event, which looks like being much bigger.

If you’re not already signed up here’s the link (There over $1200 of cash prizes)


This time I’ve increased the prizes, and got top quality graphics from GFX1.   The last event I got them from Fiverr.com which isn’t really good enough.


I’m going to continue running  JV Giveaways and starting to run Mini-Giveaways which help everyone build their lists.

If you’re looking to do the same here’s a few tips

Before you start build relationships with other marketers.

Help them out – offer to do things for them free, promote their products, and take part in their events.

If you don’t do that why would they help you?  A lot of people just set up an event before anyone really knows who they are – that isn’t likely to work.

Join skype rooms and facebook group and take part in giveaways and mini-giveaways.

If you’re in mini giveaway events try to stand out – make sure you reach the minimum number of clicks required and preferably over-deliver.  Then people will want to work with you.  If you under deliver they will most likely avoid you.

If you do adswaps or sell solo ads make sure you over-deliver in those too.

Then when you do run an event you’ll be surprised how well it goes.   I expected to get 300 or 400 average signups that most  giveaways get nowadays but got 1500.

Last of all if you offer cash prizes make sure you pay them out on time, for my last event mine were paid out within 24 hours.   That definately makes people want to be in your next event.

Good luck with your marketing…



Do JV Giveaways Still Work?

I’m not sure where the time has gone – it’s been 3 months since my last post.

I’ve now been married for two months…

But back to IM and the question in the title – do JV Giveaways still work.

Most events are now quite small. However I join them all quickly using Push Button Giveaways and buy the upgrade in most events. This allows me to add multiple gifts quickly and I add a mixture from my main list of around 15.

I’ve just checked my stats and just one of my gifts has added over 1,000 subscribers to my list just from Giveaways
in the past year.  A few from each event soon adds up.

And I have other gifts building lists, and also gain subscribers from Text Adverts and Special Offers,  they definately do work, but you have to put in some effort and keep at it  (most people forget to tell you about the work you need to put in).

Because I’ve been getting some good results I decide to run another event myself with Randy Smith.

If you haven’t already joined you can signup here and join the hundred other people building their lists for free:



Would you like to run your own event?

I’m considering hosting a limited number of JV Giveaway events on behalf of clients on my server similar to the event above (so sign up and have a good look at that one) .   I’ll set these up and help with any issues, and  I will add it to Push Button Giveaways and that guarantees you some JV partners.

Co-Host an event with me?

This isn’t going to be for a little while as I have some details to work out but this will be a bigger event.  There will be four co-hosts who will get all the JVs and Members added to their list.   This will be a much larger investment than the running your own event option as the payments from partners will go towards a big prize fund to attract promoters.
