It might come as a surprise to you (or it might not) but
bloggers are making more money quite often than those with
a traditional website.
Infact a lot of our affiliates are simply creating a blog
in under 20 minuntes, (yes it really does take that little
time to set up) then adding a pre-sell review of Fat Loss
Revealed or my interview (see left menu for those) then just
sending PPC traffic directly to that blog.
Some affilaites are getting a 2.2% conversion, and these
are people with absolutely no name whatsoever, just marketing
type folks. People with an industry name adding my interview
for example to a blog , are getting over 4% consistently,
with around a 37% success on the upsell.
Blog's are a quick, free and simple way to have your own
web site, nowadays Blog's have become so flexible, there's
really not much difference between a well set up Blog and
a traditional web site
Although there are literally dozens of blog providers now
the biggest and "best" is probably Blogger, mainly
because it's owned by Google and they seem to be giving it
very high rankings in the search engines.
You can get a blog setup in minutes and it's 100% free, here's
the link : www.blogger.com
Blogger is ideal if you don't have your a web site and have
your own domain name etc. If you do already have a web site,
you should check out Word Press. www.wordpress.com
. Word press has greater functionality and flexibility over
blogspot and is installed on your own domain, Blog spot however
is ideal if you don't have your own web site as they host
the blog for you.
Why Do I Need A Blog?
If you have your own web site it's not so important but owning
a Blog will allow you to implement some of the following techniques
available with the Fat Loss Revealed program.
Reviews & Presell
With a Blog, you can write a review of Fat Loss Revealed
and "pre-sell" your traffic before you send it to
my sales page, this technique alone will massively increase
your profits over simply sending traffic direct.
With a Blog you can add all my free brandable e-books
and give them away to visitors. Think of all those viral copies
of my free e-books going around the internet with your Clickbank
hoplink in them.
Articles & Q&A Columns
With a Blog, you will be able to add my articles
and Q&A/blog articles which will create great fresh content
for your blog, all you need to do is add your Clickbank affiliate
hoplink to the end of the articles. See left menu for Q&A/Blog
articles you can use on your blog.
Some Tips For Setting Up Your
Don't try and be all things to all people.
What I mean by that is, don't promote dozens of programs,
especially ones which are very different. If you want to promote
Fat Loss Revealed then stick to muscle building and bodybuilding
as your Blog's main content. Use my articles , Q&A's and
other muscle building / bodybuilding related content.
A sure fire way to minimize your revenue from your blog is
by trying to promote more than one program on a single blog.
You will lose credibility instantly if people think your simply
trying to hawk any program you can.
If you want to maximise your revenue with your blog , then
show people you stand behind one or two products maximum,
otherwise your blog starts to look like a shopping mall site
and people will just leave instantly before they even read
what you have to say.
Nowadays surfers are becoming very savvy and will spot a
sales orientated site a mile off.
Know your audience , stick to one or two products and stick
to providing quality information to that niche audience.
Keep the Blog Clean / Easy To Read & Navigate
In other words, leave gawdy background colour's,
huge animated twirling images and so forth to the kids , your
site should be as simple and as clean as possible.
You want the blog to be very easy to read, people will simply
leave if you have chosen some god awful colour scheme and
they can't read what you have to say without a struggle.
Keep Your Blog Entries Short and Sweet
Blog's tend to work best when each entry is relatively short,
people have become used to visiting Blog's and getting quality
information in bite sized chunks, it's best to try and adhere
to this practice where possible.
Don't make it look like a sales site
You don't want to slam great big text messages saying
"buy this program now" all over your site.
It will achieve next to no sales. Surfers rarely go online
trying to find a muscle building program, they go online looking
for solutions and answers, you need to provide those answers
and give them a solution.
The solution to their problem is Fat Loss Revealed, but
you need to tell them that in a subtle fashion, be too direct
and you will lose them.
For example, add one of my articles , then put a small piece
of text at the bottom of the article about how much you liked
the article and are impressed with my writing , then after
that put one of my e-book covers
images at the end of the article with something like "

Getting Ripped Click Here"
Then just add your clickbank hoplink to that "click
In other words, don't cram it down their faces, give them
good content first and then include the link to Fat Loss Revealed. Perhaps even offer them one of my brandable ebooks
at the end.
Introduce yourself and be visible
By this I mean, don't be some random faceless entity, your
using your blog to try and create revenue from the program
and people will want to know who you are, so include a little
bit about yourself on your blog.
People buy from people, it's important they feel your real
and have a genuine interest in the product your recommending
on the blog. Adding a photo can really cement the surfers
trust that your a real human being recommending a quality
Make a Personal Recommendation
Nothing creates sales like an honest personal recommendation
of a product. If your prepared to spend the time writing a
personal review of Fat Loss Revealed you'll find your
sales go through the roof.
Check out the reviews section
for ideas, adding a review to your blog is a sure fire way
to increase sales. Be honest, feel free to include all the
products strengths but if you feel it has a weakness, let
them know, be honest, people will feel your honest and trust
your recommendation and buy even if there may be a weakness
in some area.
The fact that your being honest and still recommending it
will be your strongest selling point.
Keep it relaxed and even Funny If You Can
Don't try and be to formal on a blog, people are expecting
a loose relaxed style. Keep it informal, talk on the blog
as if your talking to somebody across the room from yourself,
keep it relaxed, and if you can be humorous even better, you
want to keep the surfer trusting you and feeling he/she knows
Writing like a robot won't achieve that, so hang loose ,
be friendly and use it as as personal diary open to the world.
The worst sin, dullness, don't be boring, it's a sure fire
way to send potential customers scurrying for the back button.
