Banner Ad Blueprint Review

Banner Ad Blueprint Thumbnail Image

I chose Banner Ad Blueprint as my next product to review for two reasons: It’s an Internet marketing product that very quickly rose to the top of it’s category on Clickbank and it deals with banner advertising (a.k.a. media buying), which is a subject that seems to be gaining momentum in the online marketing community.

So, will this product teach you everything you need to know in order to run profitable banner ad campaigns? Read on to find out.

In today’s review, I take a look at a new plugin called WP Split Test and as the name implies, this tool helps you set up and track split tests on your WordPress websites.

Split-testing, sometimes also called A/B testing, is the process of testing two or more variations of a webpage against each other in order to determine which one performs better. The goal of split testing is simply to find out how to structure your page so that you can get more clicks, more conversions, more sign-ups or whatever else may be the purpose of the site.

(Very) Basic Market Research

Market Research Image

Market research is usually concerned with the demographics of a market, the amount and kind of competition you can expect, evaluation of what type of content and delivery the target demographic responds to etc.

For this article, I want to take the market research down a notch and present you a very simple, very basic research “method” that you should be applying on a regular basis as an online marketer. Especially if you are new to this game.

The Best Spinner – Video Review

A few days ago, I published my written review of The Best Spinner. As usual, I like to follow up with a video-review, since my written reviews tend to go into a lot of detail and are quite extensive. So, if you’re looking for a quick demonstration of the Best Spinner article spinning software as well as my thoughts about it, check out the video below.

 

 



As always, comments and questions are very welcome!

The Best Spinner Review

Welcome to my review of the Best Spinner! I’ve already produced a fair amount of content concerning article spinning and I’ve often said that (spinning-) bots are stupid and that I’m no fan of auto-rewritten content. In light of this, it’s only fair that I give the big new player in the article spinning scene a fair review.

The Best Spinner is a new product by Jonathan Leger and in this review we’re going to find out whether it can live up to it’s name whether it’s just another piece of junkware you should steer clear of. Read on to get the details.

Marketing Psychology: Commitment Bias

Commitment Bias

This is the first entry in a series of posts I’ll be doing about sales psychology. This won’t be a series of consecutive posts but rather a subject that I’ll post about from time to time. In the series, you’ll learn about specific techniques that can be used to increase sales and conversions. Once you’ve read about them, you’ll soon recognize them in many advertising campaigns online and off.

To start off, I want to introduce an easily exploitable psychological bias called the commitment bias.

Internet Marketing Tribes

Tribal Internet Marketing

IMPORTANT UPDATE

There is now a new post, which is basically a better and more up-to-date version of everything that’s written here. I strongly recommend that you read this post about how to start an online business, instead of the one below.

A few days ago, Darren Rowse (Pro Blogger), Chris Brogan (Trust Agents), Sonia Simone and Brian Clark (both Copyblogger) launched a new membership site called “The Third Tribe”. You’ve probably heard of it, since it made something of a splash.

This post is not another Third Tribe rant. Others have already done that better than I ever could. If you take just one thing from this post, let it be this: Go to Griz’s Third Tribe review and read it. It makes a more than excellent case and is very much worth reading.

If you take another thing from this post, then it’s a clearer and less biased overview of Internet marketing “tribes” that follows below:

Cheers,

Link Love Friday #07

Well, by now it’s clear that LLF won’t be a weekly feature. I simply don’t find enough “worthy” posts and/or don’t spend enough time browsing the online marketing related Interwebs, to come up with enough material.

Be that as it may, I will still gather useful posts and resources and post them up on a Friday once I’ve found several.

Without further ado, here’s today’s collection:

twittollower: A Lesson in Marketing and Product Pricing

twittollower lessons

If you’re on a few Internet marketing mailing lists, you’ve no doubt received plenty of messages endorsing twittollower, a new twitter automation service. twittollower is not unique in what it does: Programs like Hummingbird, tweetadder and many, many more have been around for quite a long time already. But twittollower is unique in the way it’s being marketed and it’s at the same time amusing and fascinating.

Let’s have a look at what twitter automation does in general and what sets twittollower apart. Oh, and in case you’re already rolling your eyes because you can’t take another endorsement for this service: Don’t worry, this is definitely not an endorsement.
