What’s the Number One Reason People Quit Affiliate Marketing?

What’s the Number One Reason People Quit Affiliate Marketing?

At this stage, I’ve probably seen tens of thousands of people get started with online marketing.

I’ve seen some go on to become wildly successful. I’ve seen some people who have no experience go on to make hundreds of thousands—even millions of dollars.

And I’ve also seen a lot more people who quit. Most of them drop out of the business within six months. They’re not doing anything to make money, then they get upset because they’re not making money. And now they’re not doing Internet marketing anymore.

How to Maximize Your ROI by Using Email Segmentation?

How to Maximize Your ROI by Using Email Segmentation?

Let’s say you have a list of 1,000 email subscribers. You can pick different segments of that list and tailor your message to the different segments.

Segmenting helps you make a lot more money based on the characteristics and behavior of that segment.

For example, imagine you decide to be an affiliate and promote someone else’s webinar … Many of the big affiliate marketers do at least one webinar every week.

If the webinar is on a Thursday night, you should start promoting it a few days before. So on Tuesday, you would send your list an email about the ‘exciting new webinar’.

Let’s say 25% of those people open the email—that means 250 people opened the email. Out of those 250 people, let’s say 50 of them click the registration link for the webinar and register for the webinar.

That means 200 people opened the email, but for some strange reason, they did not register for the webinar.

What’s the Danger in Being Too Focused on One Communication Channel?

What’s the Danger in Being Too Focused on One Communication Channel?

  Here’s a question I get often, and I’m glad because I know it’s going to help out a lot of people … People get so caught up in the entire Internet craze, and everyone seems to think you must become sort of laser-focused Internet marketer. But is there a danger in just doing Internet marketing only? And how can you overcome this? Most Internet marketers are taught find a product with good commissions … Create a lead capture page for the product … Go place some paid traffic ads … Drive them to your lead capture page … Start building an email list … And then start sending emails for more offers. That’s what most of us are taught anyway. And that’s what I was taught in early 2009, when I started doing that system with Google Ad Words. I built my first list of a hundred subscribers, and then got up to a thousand, and so on. But be careful with … The Danger of Being Too Dependent on One Form of Marketing I learned this from Dan Kennedy, and it’s a very good piece of advice you can use … There is a big danger if you’re dependent on only one form of media. But most of us are dependent on only one line of communication to reach our audience—the email list. After all, for most online marketers, you’re list is everything—it’s where you are going to derive an income—ideally for the rest of your life. The reason you are in this business is to build a list, build a relationship with that list, and to...

Are You Getting Scammed by McDonald’s?

Are You Getting Scammed by McDonald’s?

Imagine you go in to McDonald’s, and you order just one Big Mac. What’s the next question they usually ask you?

They say “Would you like fries or a drink with that?” And if you say yes, then they ask, “Would you like to upgrade to a Medium or Large?” If you say yes, of course they’ll upgrade your order and give you fries or a large drink.

All the employees are trained to ask these questions and ‘upsell’ every customer, and McDonald’s requires it’s employees to try to sell more food to all of their customers.

How to Handle Negative Publicity—and When to Hire a Lawyer?

How to Handle Negative Publicity—and When to Hire a Lawyer?

As for me, I definitely have some experience in this in the last seven years. There are people out there who like to trash MOBE, trash talk me, and definitely trash our products.

Often, when you’re reading these bad reviews (fake reviews), down at the bottom, after they’re done trashing you or other people, of course they conveniently recommend their own solution. It’s just going to happen a lot, so that’s the first thing you need to accept.

When you become successful in this industry—as an affiliate marketer or ‘instant guru’—and you start building a brand for yourself, a lot of these people will come along and start talking trash about you.

Should I Encourage My Kids to Be Entrepreneurs or Get Good Grades?

Should I Encourage My Kids to Be Entrepreneurs or Get Good Grades?

I was talking with my friend Susan from New South Wales, and she asked, “Matt, I have young kids, should I teach them to be entrepreneurs or to go to school and get very good grades?”

This is a very good question, and it’s ironic Susan is from South Wales, because right now I’m in the small town of Life Valley, Australia, where I actually grew up. The town has a population of only about 15 people, and the nearest city is about 30 minutes away.

Right now I’m standing at the end of the driveway of my old house—in the spot we got picked up by the school bus every morning.

Hola from Costa Rica.

It’s been awhile … let me bring you up to speed on what’s been happening.

I’ve now been here for the last 2 months. When I flew over, I intended to be here for 3 weeks … maybe 4 weeks tops.

But, finishing up the MOBE Resort has taken a lot longer than I anticipated.
