In the first part I talked more about the technical stuff, but in this part I am going to talk about what I am most interested in. These are some paid traffic tips that no one seems to talk about for some reason although I think there are people like me, who think like me. Hopefully, so I don’t feel like a freak. More about this later.
SEO, long tail keywords, backlinking, guest posts, getting ranked, etc. is all great, but as you might have learned already, it takes a whole lot of time. Of course there are tools that can help you a great deal, such as all in one SEO plugin by Yoast or a backlinking service called Magic Submitter (which I recommend by the way), but any kind of traffic or better yet income, is not going to happen overnight. Now that is all fine if you don’t depend on your online business, but what if you got into blogging or affiliate marketing to make boat loads (which you shouldn’t have)? Let me give you some Paid Traffic Tips to speed up the process.
I always thought Facebook was a pointless way of marketing if you’re promoting something for adults. I don’t mean some kind of sex toys, but something that is not that mainstream. As you probably know, the thing I am trying to promote is automated forex trading software. I think you would agree, it is not something for the typical facebook user.
I’ve been running my campaigns for some time now with different networks. They are AdKnowledge, LeadImpact and 50onred. I’ve also gone with Google Adwords and Facebook Ads. So I thought it might be a good idea to tell you what is going on with the and how they have performed. I talked about it in some posts, but in case you haven’t read them, here it goes.
Let me tell you how I got kicked in the bollocks.
In the quest to make some easy money online I found a quick download, created a landing page and was good to go. And then I got rejected.
Since I haven’t written anything in few days, I thought it would be a good idea to let you guys know what’s up.
My campaign is still running, however the opt-ins are coming along way to slowly for me . The next step then obviously was to optimize the targets. When I looked closer at what targets I had put in, I realized they were crap. So rather than having 700 targets per country, I decided to go with much less, but much more targeted.
To get it right this time, I had to use google search of that country. For example, for Australia it is google.com.au. Now to make sure I get as accurate results as I can, I did 2 things.
Well, to be honest, the results are shit. I thought I will report to you what success it has been so far, but no. Not even close. There were three campaigns I was running and two are done and one is paused.
In the last post I talked about using Media Traffic for my pop ups, but after reading quite a few reviews, I decided not to go with them. The thing is, lot of people were saying their traffic sucks and for my first time using this kind of service, I didn’t want to waste money, which it seems I would. I also got a weird feeling about them since watching few tutorials from 2010 and seeing their website hasn’t changed. I know that doesn’t say much, but not even a minor change in design? That kind of put me off as well.
I am pretty technical, but to get everything working the way I want it doesn’t always turn out to be the easiest. There is always something that just won’t work the way I want it. I guess I am “lucky” that way. I actually don’t remember one thing I ever did, that was just smooth-going from start to finish.
Anyway, the problem that I had now was to get mailchimp subscription box fit into my squeeze page. Not to mention the squeeze page itself. I created one, which to be honest, was just awful. So I apologize but I’m not even going to share it. I had a friend of mine create one for me. You can actually check it out here if you want. You notice there is some change, which if you click on it, will show you a message, bunch of bollocks really. But anyway, my client likes it and that is all that matters. The next step was to create thank you page on the site, which if you put your email address in the box and confirm it in the next mail you get, will take you to that page.
So I mentioned in the last post I want to get into paid traffic and explore that area of internet marketing and I decided to go with PPC, CPC and solo ads using Safe Swaps.
I don’t know where I got this mindmap from and I’m sorry I can’t give credit to the person who created it, but it’s amazing, plus it saves you a lot of time doing research. Click here if you want to check it out.
