When it comes to doing business online one of the hardest tasks is to find quality content for your website or guest blogging (a little more info on this later)  purposes. Everyone who does business online is in need of quality content but unfortunately this is not always easy to find.

Omar And Will Writing Service

Some of the common problems many people encounter are:

  1. The Content Is Plagiarized
  2. The Content Is Not Well Written (even though quality was promised)
  3. The Content Is Too Expensive
  4. The Content Is Not Delivered On Time
  5. The Writers Tend To Disappear

The list can go on a on but these are the main problems you will be dealing with on a consistent basis. Believe me Omar and I have a lot of experience in these situations. I cannot tell you how many times I found myself stressing out simply because the writer who I thought was reliable disappeared or the content was never delivered on time.

Would you want to know how you save yourself from this stress?

Well…

Omar and I (Will) have decided to provide well written quality articles at an affordable price that will be delivered in time. Of course you won’t need to worry about us disappearing either. (not like we could even if we wanted to LOL)

I know I know…You are probably asking yourself,

How are these 2 twenty four year olds suppose to provide me with some quality content?

The answer is quite simple…Check out our ezine profiles and see how many articles we have done in the past.

I will be the first one to tell you when we first started back in 2008 we HATED TO WRITE ARTICLES and frankly we SUCKED at it. BUT of course after years of trial and error we developed our skills and our love for writing articles and the concept of article marketing grew on us.

This is going to be a cool little story about how SendOutCards ( the online greeting card service) continues to help us build strong customer relationships with our clients we produce articles for our Epic Writing Service. So if you haven’t heard about SendOutCards, go here. It will explain it a lot better than I can.

So, everyone loves getting a Thank you card right? Of course, we all do. We all like to feel appreciated and that’s no different when it comes to customers who may be buying from you all the time. 

Are you taking the time out of your busy day to let them know you appreciate their business?

We are!

Now here is what happened once we started to use the service to send Thank You Cards (which I will show an example of in this post) to our clients who ordered from us. 

One client who at the time was one of our BEST clients and ordered plenty of articles from us loved our service and we had built a strong relationship with them. Everything was going great and we were just starting out our service and seeing good results.

After a few months, our client decided to try another service that I am assuming had better prices then ours and probably had other perks about it. Either way , didn’t hear from them for months and we kept on going on with our business satisfying other client’s needs with their content. 

No big deal right?

Eh…not really. They were a high volume client so we loved to have their business, but overall they were an awesome person to deal with. That’s when the idea hit me.

Since we recently joined SendOutCards as a customer, let’s send them a quick appreciation card. It looked something like this.

Soc Front Card

 

(Front of our card)

SOC CARD inside

(Inside of card “First Name” gets replaced with their name)

After sending the card, we kept going on with our business until….

We got an email saying that they wanted to continue using our SERVICE and that they LOVED the card we sent. 

Simple as that. And guess what? That client continues to order with us and we have a great relationship with them. The other cool thing any savvy business person should be doing is if your client continues to order with you, send them little gifts here and there. You can attach gift cards to the cards you produce and a bunch of other things.

The point is this…people appreciate being appreciated.

Whatever business you are in…let them know you appreciate them. Even if you aren’t in business, I am sure you know a few people you could let know you appreciate today because you never know what tomorrow is going to bring.

Do you?

Another benefit I forgot to mention was the SendOutCards company does all the stamping, shipping, stuffing, mailing…everything totally for you. Just click the button to send. 

I’ve noticed that when I need to go to the mailbox to do this myself, It will probably never get it done. Maybe it’s just me, but I know TONS of people out there feel the same way.

So hope you liked my story on how I believe this service helped out our Epic Writing Service.

Until next time.

Hope you all are having a GREAT holiday season. We wish you all the best.

Christina Banyte Solo Ad Blog Picture 1On another note, we ran another SOLO AD a few days ago and wanted to run the results by you. This one was a little tricky and didn’t turn out like we wanted too. 

First off, we tested this page with our previous solo ad seller here, and we ran a great 32% conversion from click to opt in. That was pretty sweet. And the price wasn’t to bad as well.

But this one was a little different. I’m guessing it probably had to do with the overall audience of the list, but you’ll see that the overall opt in rate wasn’t great. Now again, this isn’t the sellers fault, they provided me the unique clicks that I paid for. It was an overall great experience with great customer service though. Here are the results.

Look at the proof screenshot below

Christina Banyte Solo Ad 1 ScreenShot(Click image to enlarge)

RESULTS

Price Paid: $35 for 100 Guaranteed Clicks

Total Clicks Delivered: 141 (mega overdelivery!)

Opt In’s : 15

Opt In Rate = 10.6%

Sales = O

Cost Per Lead = $2.33

Seller = Christina Banyte

 

So as you can see, the opt in rate was lower than any of our other previous SOLO ADS, but it’s all a matter of testing. There were a HUGE over delivery of clicks which was awesome!

Basically that is what solo ads are all about. Finding certain sellers and when one lands, you stick with them as the results keep coming.

Have a great holiday season!

Bump you! Yeah I said it…

Just kiddin…but today I will be discussing something I find very interesting and after seeing the results of what it did for us, knew you could get some type of benefit from it. So sit back and get ready to take notes.

*Also, the information in this post is probably stuff people charge you for so please don’t take it for granted because it’s free.

The Warrior Forum Opportunity

First off, I hope you know what I mean by the Warrior Forum. This forum is a place where a ton of internet marketing minds come together to share ideas, tips and also argue about what is working and what isn’t.

It can be a pretty entertaining and then at times, there could be people who want to get on your last nerve. It’s all part of the forum atmosphere though, so don’t go in the kitchen if you can’t handle the fire…isn’t that how the saying goes?

I think so…anyway. Will and I figured that we knew how to crank out high quality articles since we wrote over 5K that are over in Ezine Articles (look us up, but we have others under different pen names), we could probably create a service to sell high quality articles. Please keep in mind that we had NO IDEA how to do this, how we would make it work or even if there was a market for it but from this idea we began to develop a simple plan.

Is There A Market? 

Before you try to create a product or service, you better make sure you have a market for it. If people aren’t spending money on it then how will you be making money? In our case, before we started our Epic Writing Service man we spent A LOT of money on articles.

First, we use to write the articles ourselves then started to hire our team of writers who we began to build trust with overtime. But still, a big portion of our money was going into our content marketing campaigns. Either the content was for article marketing, backlinking, or for the websites themselves etc. 

The Decision

After looking over the numbers and seeing that WE were spending money on articles ourselves, we knew that it was possible that others could be customers for us and potentially buy articles through us…and thankfully we were right.

So first and foremost, make sure people are out there willing to buy what you have to offer. Once you can determine that, look at the different categories and niche ideas to get your juices flowing.

Then from here, you need to go to the Warrior For Hire section to actually place your offer out there for others too see. After scrolling through you will see there are various different offers people are out there selling. And believe me…a lot of them are making bank. It’s simple, because this forum is so popular and they have the MARKET you are already looking for. Just put something they want to spend their money on in front of them. Provide a valuable product or service they would want or desire. Pretty much…something they NEED. I can’t keep it any simpler than that

In our case it was simple because we knew people needed articles because we needed them too. 

Setting Up Your Offer

One thing that you should know right now is that this is NOT FREE. It does cost like $20 I believe to put up your thread in the Warrior Forum for Hire section. Might be more but not much more. Trust me, if you have a compelling enough service or product you could make that back very fast. So don’t let the small initial fee scare you.

Ok..so if you look at our thread you will notice that we don’t have many fancy things on it. I’ve seen a lot of other people who sell services that have awesome looking picture but I don’t think all those things are needed…at least you don’t need them to start. What you DO NEED IS CREDIBILITY! Other people’s TESTIMONIALS will sell the crap outta your service. Also if you want, add a nice picture of yourself. Probably not needed but just adds to the personal feel we like to give.

That’s why once you go on my offer, you will see immediately what others are saying about my Article Service. People want to see that. They want to know that they will be getting their monies worth with someone they can trust. 

How To You Get Credibility?

Good question. You might not like the answer though. You got to give things away for FREE. You got be willing to offer your product or service free of charge to a select few people. 

Why?

Because the agreement between you and them will be “I will give my product or service for FREE, and in turn you will give me an honest review on how you liked it etc”. Very simple, but very powerful. After you get a few of these, you should stark immediately sticking them in your warrior thread so other people will get sold on whatever it is you are offering. This is a powerful tactic. GIVE OUT FREE and you will get back. After giving out 10 or 15 “free reviews” then you can close up the free review trial offer. It’s up to you.

Just know some people will never come back to leave you a review. Don’t worry about them. No use crying over spilled milk my Mom told me. Well, she didn’ t really tell me that but I read it in a book and it makes sense in this example.

Your Offer

This is the simple part. All you have to do is lay out whatever it is your offering. Pretty strait forward. Of coure, you want to be persuasive in some way or another but again if the market is hungry, all ya gatta do is feed them. If anyone told you that you need a fancy copywriter first to make things happen, then I bet they were trying to sell you copywriting secrets then…right? lol

You don’t. I think I am OK at writing and I wrote all the material at our thread but by no means am I a super professional master with words. I just wrote what made sense. I also saw other threads that had a lot of views and visitors and pretty much emulated what they did. Not rocket science just master mimicking if you ask me! 

Just make sure you have a crap load of testimonials with happy clients. That’s it. 

Payment

You need to be able to accept payment for your service, we use Paypal. Not to much too say about this. Some others have Paypal links that you can click directly and order. This is fine, but we don’t like to do this simply because we like to have initial contact with potential clients before accepting them. Also, it protects us from getting a flood of orders and then not being able to satisfy all of them in a timely matter.

So the choice is going to ultimately be up to you.

Promotion

I wanted to punch myself in the face when I figured out how powerful a BUMP was since I had decided to ignore it and not use is for several months since we started the service. I think Will wanted to punch me too, but then he didn’t because I figured it out which brought in A LOT of new business so instead we went out for Applebees Nachos. Success… 

Anyway here is what a BUMP is and why YOU BETTER be using it if you decide to put up a service on this thread or most likely any other forum related to your niche.

Once you put up your service it’s in front of everyone eyes. But then throughout time you start to move down in the thread. Eventually you move to page 2,3,4 then once your all the way back there, consider yourself lost in the Bermuda. You will not be getting ANY business where no one can see you.

That’s were we were and I was wondering why the heck weren’t we getting new clients in consistently. Well that’s why.

The only thing I can compare it to is the Search Engines. We’ve ranked a lot of sites on the first page of Google. Also, several #1 to be exact. You want to know what happens if that site on the top spots of Google where to go to page 2,3,or 4 would do to us?

It would make me cry and pretty much eliminate all of our traffic. (Real men cry when they lose their search engine rankings, trust me).

Same goes for your thread on the forum. 

Now this might not sound like a million dollar tip, but I think it is. Because ONCE I DID THIS, we had an EMAIL FULL OF POTENTIAL NEW CLIENTS. Literally once I did the bump within 12 hours, we had people messaging us and emailing us to try out our service.

The bump your thread button looks like this…

 

Now the rules on bumping a thread can be found here, so read them. I read somewhere you got to wait until your thread hits page #3 to give your thread a BUMP up to the top again. But clearly I don’t see that on the link I provided. Either way, follow their rules.

That’s It

From here on out, if you have a compelling offer and followed the steps above, you should be fine. MAKE sure you answer peoples questions in a timely matter and whenever you get new testimonials from people you continue to stick them on your main sales thread. You can continue to EDIT it to make changes which is how I also add more testimonials to the bottom.

Testimonials sell for you and are very powerful. Please, do not underestimate this.

We’ve pretty much laid out EXACTLY how we created our article writing service and how you can do the same for whatever you wish, as long as their is a market for it. ;-)

RIP Zig Ziglar

Nov 6, 1926 – Nov 28, 2012

 

So if you haven’t heard yet, one of the greatest personal development teachers of our time is now gone. His name was Zig Ziglar. See his official Facebook Fanpage here to leave your condolences.

I remember Will and I sat in the car between classes in college, plugged a Zig Ziglar CD in and just sat there and thought about stuff. His ideas, his philosphies and wisdom were unlike many men out there. His views of the world are very similiar to that of Jim Rohn, who is also very popular in the field of personal development as well.

So there we were…

Sitting in the car at the age of 18 having no real idea we wanted to get into the home base business industry, not knowing we would ever even have a website like this. Not knowing anything really. Just wondering why weren’t we taught this stuff in the classes we were taking. Why weren’t we given Zig Ziglars audio tapes to study instead of learning about how to classify certain types of plants.

Zig Ziglar has a bunch of quotes and you’ve probably heard tons of them. One though…just one is probably one of his most famous of all time. It has stuck with me through those several years from when Will and I were sitting in my car between classes till this moment. And that quote is…

 “You can have everything in life that you want, if would just help enough people get what they want”

Simple isn’t it? Yes. But do we all follow this principle. Society now has us conditioned to put OURSELVES first. Put your wants and needs ahead of others. We many times reject the idea of going the extra mile (Thanks Napoleon Hill & Andrew Carnegie for that extra mile thinkin) to help someone ELSE get ahead. Thats the key right there.

Helping something else get ahead.

The way the world works is pretty strange but there are certain laws that always seem to stay in place. What you PUT OUT is always what you get back. That’s why this qoute and Zig Ziglars philosophies for life will always hold true.

Also as a tribute to the Legend of Zig Ziglar we put up some new PixPirations over at our Inspirational Image site which you can visit at www.PixPirations.com

 

So there you have it. Our story of Zig Ziglar and the simple yet powerful impact he made on our lives…

Did he make an impact on your life? If so let us know below with a comment!

Hey all. It seems like whenever any internet marketers hear anything come out the mouth of Matt Cutts, it usually isn’t good.

Here’s the latest from his twitter.

Matt Cutts Sep 28

 Yikes! Over at Search Engine Land, they discuss a bit more about this situation. It seems like Google is doing anything and everything to eliminate the average affiliate marketer.

If you are not familiar with what and EMD is it is an acronym for Exact Match Domain. So basically if you wanted to rank on the high on the Search Engines for the term Purple Laptop Bag, you could get a domain name such as www.PurpleLaptopBag.com

Supposodly, this new “minor” tweak is suppose to weigh less emphasis on these types of domain names, mainly because many affiliate marketers use these types of domains to shoot up in the SERPS. We saw a negative impact on a site that we own from this, even though it was NOT totally an exact match.

Also, it is believed they are targeting thin content and lack of pages on a site. BUT in several niches we see pure garbage sites ranking with spun content and HEAVILY OPTIMIZED title tags and descriptions. It’s almost laughable…

Who knows really though? NO BODY.

This is why it is NEVER a good idea to only rely on Google for traffic. Because honestly….they don’t really care about marketers like you and I!

Let’s keep an eye on this.

Until next time
