Do JV Giveaways Give You Poor Quality Traffic?

I have to admit that at first JV Giveaways and Adswaps didn’t really appeal to me.
The thing is a lot of Giveaways I’d looked at are full of old PLR packages that have been around for years and I didn’t see the point in filling up my hard disk with junk.

However I know people who have had succes with them, so decided to give them a change and I have now been doing them a several months. I mainly use my own original product and it does produce results.

I decided to test Giveaways in another niche and see what happened, here are my stats:

Alex Jeffreys Coaching Is Over.

So we’ve had the final seminar, but this is just the beginning. I will be going back over the coaching again and improving my system and also meeting Alex and some of his students tomorrow.

Many students (or should I now say graduates) are forming JV’s with each other (I have 5 or 6 either done or planned) so we are building our businesses together.

Over 1000 Visitors and 200 Optins Per week

This didn’t happen overnight but with the help of some JV partners and a few giveaways I’ve been able to boost my list from under 2000 to 2606 in 3 weeks.

Blog Traffic

My traffic came from many different sources but the top ones are:
1) Adswaps with JV partners
2) Giveaways
3) Google traffic

Getting traffic from Google can seem hard and many SEO guides make it too complicated.
I find keyword research fairly tough and I confess to not have done any for Free Backlinks Generator. I just found a domain name that fitted what it did and registered it.
I then used a simple method that effectively lets Google do the research for me and was able to gradually build up my free traffic in simple steps without spending much time.
I will be publishing a report explaining what I did and it will show anyone how they grab their own slice of free traffic.

That’s all for now, looking forward to meeting lot of people at Lee McIntyre’s Manchester Workshop during the next couple of day.

Challenge from an Alex Jeffrey’s Student

This post is part of Alex Jeffreys Coaching Course the idea was started by Gary Simpson (see his post below – warning watch out for his scary photo! )

25 things about myself – very hard to think of so I’m going to copy other peoples ideas.

1) This is a list of all the jobs I have had since I left school:
One year as a temporary assistant chemist.

Sorry it’s not very interesting but that’s it – I started a business during that year and I’ve been self employed ever since.

2) I studied at Durham University for a Physics and Maths Joint Honours Degree

3) I left No.2 after 4 months to go become full time in my mail order business.

4) I was a free lance machine code programmer and some of my games are listed online -I’ve no idea why people spend their time creating sites lie these:

5) I own a printing company

6) I won a business award run by the Daily Express in 1981 (and had my photo on the front page) and would have been on national TV, but the Falklands War started the same time.

7) The town I live in (Whitehaven) was the last place in the UK to be invaded (by the US Navy)

8 ) I have a sister who lives in New Zealand

9) My Mother is also an eBay seller (She sells plants)

10) I learnt to sail when I was 12

11) I was equal top in my schools for A’ Level results and won a cash prize

12) My school had no computers until I ran a campaign and raised funds to get one.

13) When I was young I used to do magic tricks

14) I used to do A’ Level maths exams as a hobby (when I was in the 6th form)
You should try it, it’s great fun!

15) My first business was designing, building, and selling electronic add-ons for computers such as the ZX81

16) My First computer was an Ohio Superboard II
It had no case, only 2k of memory, used a TV as a monitor and a cassette player for storing data.

17) I only passed my driving test 2 years ago

18) I take on all sorts of DIY jobs, my biggest was putting a new roof on our garage.

19) My drawing of our cat was published in the Beano when I was about 8 or 9 and I won 50 pence!

20) I was a member of young enterprise for 2 years.

25) My maths aren’t as good as they used to be!

As there aren’t many students left to tag, and I don’t know who has been and who hasn’t can I change the rules?

I’d like to tag Gary so he has to think of another 25 things (well he did start this)
And take it outside the student group and spread it across the web so I’ve tagged another 5 people from my blog commentators list:

Carol Smith
Randy Smith
John Reed
Robin Skeen
