Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash with Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash with Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

As I continue to dive through my old notes from the original Pure Leverage live event I came across Daegan Smith’s speech on Getting Traffic to your website and turning it into cash.

Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

Daegan Smith at Pure Leverage live

AS he said, “If you have the right audience, you can never go broke!”

The big issue of course is getting that audience there AND keeping them entertained.

For that of course you would need a capture page and more importantly a system to capture emails on that page (or other contact information) to be able to engage with and follow up with your subscribers.

That is where Pure Leverage and their awesome tools come in.

You still have to be able to drive traffic to your site so lets hit upon some of the key aspects of what he shared with us which are pretty consistently bringing sales to marketers worldwide and in many niches.

One of the biggest questions is whether to go Paid or Free in the marketing and groups will argue which is better and more lucrative.  If you want it fast, Paid would be the way to go and test your content.  If you can be more patient, and wait for organic results, you can focus on free methods.

On your lead capture page you want the viewer to feel safe, but at the same time curious and wanting more so that they are willing to give you their email address (note: the less you ask for the more they are willing to give and once they become a paying customer, they will provide their details anyways, especially if you have to ship them a physical product).

If you think about your own mindset the last time you bought something, take some of those same aspects and put them into your own follow ups.  For example, what was it that made you want to BUY NOW!  Take that same idea and tweak it to fit your pages.

You want to be able to always see if you can compete with your own pages to see if they will bring better conversion rates, and having or running a split test if the way to go.  You would send half of your traffic to site A and the other half to site B and see which one gets a better click through rate and/or ROI, or return on investment to see which one you want to spend more time and effort on.

These are some of the ways to drive paid traffic:

  • Solo Ads
  • Banner Ads
  • Pay Per Click

These are some free methods of driving traffic:

  • Youtube
  • Blog
  • Article writing

Having a balance of both is great, though at least get the free options up and running when you first get started online as you never know what people will search for through google, bing, yahoo and other search engines.

If you are not collecting your own leads, you should start doing it here now with Pure Leverage

How to get more free traffic from what you already do online

How to get more free traffic from what you already do online

When I was at the first Pure Leverage Live event in the fall of 2013, I was able to see Bill McIntosh, of JobCrusher speak and his topic was relating to “How to get more free traffic from what you already do online”

Bill McIntosh How to get more free traffic from what you already do online

Bill McIntosh How to get more free traffic from what you already do online

I had been making videos and adding images to my blogs and for my marketing for sometime, however realized I was leaving some important things out.  Bill McIntosh shared some tips on things you can do or tweak to your current marketing plans that will help bring even more free traffic to your websites.

For starters, being able to improve your SEO, or search engine optimization is going to help, especially if you are doing Youtube videos as Google of course owns them and will often give higher rankings for videos on the first page of a search for a video than something that might have otherwise outranked it due to only being a blog or basic website.

The more you can give the search engines, the better chance people will find you when they do a random search.  If you are doing a blog post and adding an image like I did above, you want to make sure that you provide keyword and related and relevant content to the image when wordpress asks for things like title, description, alternative text etc.

The search engines eat this stuff up and spit it back out in the form of more traffic to your site as you climb the rankings.

Bill McIntosh in his “How to get more free traffic from what you already do online” speach also gave us tips on how to properly add descriptions to our Youtube Videos.  Honestly, how many times have you seen a video on youtube and they did not even have ONE WORD in their description.  Talk about wasted opportunities.

One thing he suggested was to actually get a trasncript of the video and post that as your description because the search engines can not scan videos to know what they are about outside of the title phrases or possibly any annotations that might be listed in the videos.  By adding a content and keyword rich description to your videos you will be able to rank higher in the search engines, again bringing more traffic opportunities to your site.

Regardless of how the traffic is getting there make sure you are collecting the leads when they do show up so you can follow up with them as well to help them or solve their problems (which is why they were most likely searching on the internet in the first place!)

In order to do that make sure you have the correct tools to collect those leads and be able to develop a relationship with them.  I use a system known as Pure Leverage which allows me to build a list up to 10,000 subscribers and email them as many times as I want each month for a low $25/month.  They also hook me up with video email, video hosting, this blog you are reading, a webinar software for trainings and live weekly tools and marketing training to help me grow my business.

Go test them out here yourself for just $1: http://TheDavidGardner.com/Leverage

Inside the members area you can also get a chance to see Bill McIntosh’s speach on “How to get more free traffic from what you already do online” as the full Pure Leverage Freedom Live event was recorded and available with awesome content from Daegan Smith, Russell Brunson, Joel Therien, Mark Call, Roger Dagenais, Joel Peterson, Jackie Ulmer and many more in addition to Bill McIntosh.

Just look for this image inside the member area:

YES!  I do actually have a testimonial from the event inside the video, so be sure to check that out as well and let me know what you think here!

With a few tweaks and changes to your content production, you can start to see more clicks coming to your site without having to physically pay for the traffic.

You have to take action though…Without action you will see no results!

Stop Selling: Earn Money by giving away FREE stuff with Roger Dagenais at Pure Leverage Las Vegas

Stop Selling: Earn Money by giving away FREE stuff with Roger Dagenais at Pure Leverage Las Vegas

So I am going back over my old notes from the original Pure Leverage live event from the fall of 2012.  The latest live event is happening in San Antonio, TX as I write this, though I was unable to attend due to coaching lacrosse (as I have two games this week and my 13th anniversary!)

I had the chance to listen to Roger Dagenais speak about the idea of giving stuff away in order to build a client basis.  By giving away huge value up front, even before asking for a single thing in return, you are going to be winning the trust of many new people who will want to work with you.

Roger Dagenais Shares Giving tips to grow business

Roger Dagenais Shares Giving tips to grow business

You can hear Roger Dagenais share his whole series of tips inside the member area along with others who presented such as Russell Brunson, Daegan Smith, Marshall Sylver, Joel Therien, Mark Call, Jackie Ulmer and many more as the recordings are all available in the member area at GVO and Pure Leverage: Just look for the tab on the left side like the one in the image below:

Pure Leverage Freedom Live event

Pure Leverage Freedom Live event

Some of the key points Roger Dagenais made reference relationship building and seeking out what other MLM, or multi level marketing people are using to build their businesses in other niches.

Too often you see people using the same auto generated or standard websites that get blended in with the masses of other members and all the websites look the same.

Many of these same people looking to start a home business are also going about it wrong and not collecting leads correctly to develop a relationship and continue to provide high quality support and suggested tools to.  If they do not have a good lead generation website on their hands, they are often wasting their time and efforts as they might get traffic to their site, but do not collect the leads for future follow up.

The Pure Leverage suite of tools provides that easily with lead capture pages or blog that you can format to your liking as well as the ability to grow a list of up to 10,000 subscribers for a low cost of $25 a month.  With the additional tools like the webinar platform software included for 100 seats, video email, video hosting, live weekly training and more, the $25 is a no brainer when it comes to not only affordability, but being able to reach every marketer out there (whether they are just getting started or have been online for many years).

Pure Leverage works for any and all markets and niches.  It really does not matter what you are trying to promote as having a landing page and ability to capture contact information is one of the most important aspects to business growth.  When you can share your expertise with local businesses to how this works by giving them your knowledge it can grow from just starting with a free website set up where they pay for the hosting and tools, to you providing other services as well in the future.

Reciprocity sets in when one business starts seeing growth, they are likely to share this with others businesses in their area. You give and you get!

Just think about the types of businesses you can go out and help with the right tools to grow their business…in return, it helps out your business as well.

I am in the talks with both a wine store and a bottle return center just to give you an idea of how you can get out in the local market place to share the tools that Pure Leverage can provide.

Don’t you think it is time for you to take action on Pure Leverage as well?

Just go here now to get started for a buck!  http://TheDavidGardner.com/Leverage

Best Christmas presents ever and my biggest mistake yet!

Best Christmas presents ever and my biggest mistake yet!

After a few days away from the email, I wanted to share my best Christmas presents ever.

I could say some from the past where I got a guitar or some Star Wars toys, however this year has the makings of the best one yet.

I was given the gift of more education…In the form of a few books.

When you are more knowledgeable to your followers and can consistently provide more value to them, they are going to stick with you for years.

You know what that correlates to?

Longer customer retention AND a greater LCV, or Lifetime Customer Value.

When I look at some of the marketers I have been following since 2009, I have invested thousands into their trainings, software, support and more to grow my business from nothing to thousands of subscribers.

This is just working part time.

I want you to have the same for your list as well, though it might not come easy there are ways to speed up the process and that is by learning all the time.

Never stop learning and remember there is ALWAYS someone else out there who is smarter than you who you can gain more information from.

You see, right there was the basis for my biggest mistake yet.  As an educated person, I have a Masters Degree in Education, I started out my journey in the home business field trying to learn everything myself…basically re-creating the wheel.

In the mean time as I was learning, I was not earning…I was only gaining massive knowledge (which of course has since paid off) but not taking action.

Then I started to act on everything I learned.  Something’s of course were implemented more than others as I found some methods easier than others.

Building my list was one of the main goals in this process and it should be for you as well.  It will not come easy, though there are ways to lighten the process and have a package all in one place to make this happen.

Take action before 2013 ends and get your first lead…or your 101st for that matter with the right education, tools and support here

>> Tools to leverage your time! http://TheDavidGardner.com/Leverage

I have been using this tool since I first started my business to be able to keep in touch with my subscribers and have found it extremely valuable in regards to cost.

If I told you that you could build a subscriber list up to 20,000 people for $50 a month and email them as many times as you wanted, this would be considered a low cost and tax deductible as well (if you live in a country where this is required!).

What if I told you, that you can also get other tools and training like this…and not spend $50?

* Live webinar/conference room software for up to 100 attendees

* Twice weekly live webinars in training on how to use the autoresponder and webinar room and how to market your business from people like Russell Brunson, Daegan Smith and others

* An authority blog which is totally customizable and hosted for you…ready to go within seconds to joining.

* Video email…get your customers to know you a little better!

* Templates for lead generation and much, much more!

Guess what….It cost less than $25 bucks a month for all of this!

I know…crazy right!

Like my own experience, you will never grow until you got the education, tools and support AND Take action on what you learn.

The other cool thing I have to share is that there is a way you can earn 100% commissions on all those tools as well!

Now that is something special and has been paying for the tools themselves for me since shortly after I started promoting them.

Yeah, you can be a reseller and earn commissions, pass-ups and matching bonuses which just makes sense!

You are not forced into doing this, but you could be missing out on some great bonuses for life if you do not…All part of the learning process.

It just makes sense and it should to you!

You will be happy with your decision and I will be there to help you out as well!

Back up and Think Fast with Todd Gross at Pure Leverage Freedom Live

Back up and Think Fast with Todd Gross at Pure Leverage Freedom Live

When Todd Gross started to tell us to Back up and Think first at the Pure Leverage Freedom live event to start our “smart video marketing” growth I thought back to the launch of Pure Leverage.

Back in march of 2013 there was a lot of buzz surround the new marketing platform which includes autoresponder, video email, webinar conference room, a blogging platform (seen in this website), live training and much more.

The best part was that they were providing a $1 trial for 7 days…and still are for that matter which you can grab here http://MagneticSponsors.com/Leverage

I took advantage of the skills I had developed earlier to build the “know, like and trust” factor that is so crucial in the online business arena.  I started to get leads and started to have people contact me because of what they saw in my videos on places like Youtube, such as the video below:

But then life happened and I got busy with coaching, trainings in other courses and everyday family stuff and I did not make as many videos…and boy did I notice a drop in my traffic.

I was also sending folks who visited my site right to my affiliate links instead of building MY BRAND and ME.  Thus I might not ever be able to follow up with them again.

That is huge marketing mistake #1…Not building your list the right way.  I had actually gone to breakfast with some of the other attendees this morning and picked up a brilliant idea which you can see in action here: http://MagneticSponsors.com/EmpowerMe (be sure to leave a comment below explaining what I am doing here and why this is the smart way to market)

So it was really ironic when Todd Gross hinted at a similar method for list growth in his speech today, giving me more of a kick in the teeth to get my act together online.

With continuous action, you see growth you will never lose.  This is something I have always prided myself on in the online marketing world as I have always followed the mantra I picked up shortly after beginning to build my business online when I was listening to Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins who coaches about the TARL philosophy, or Take Action Revise Later (you can get his book on Amazon here: http://thedavidgardner.com/TakeActionReviseLater )

All you need to do to start building your “know, like and trust” value is to TARL as well.  Even videos as short as 1 and a half minutes are going to be beneficial to get you noticed.  If you are great, your followers really want more and if you are bad in the beginning, hey, it is only 90 seconds of your life that you can always redo later when you get more comfortable.

For information on the full speech Todd Gross gave, make sure you become a member of Pure Leverage for just $1 here: http://MagneticSponsors.com/Leverage and then take advantage of the event access when it comes available because this two day event was freaking awesome and full of marketing gems you can start implementing immediately into your business to start seeing growth.

Building a business needs a consistent effort with Jackie Ulmer

Building a business needs a consistent effort

If you are just starting out your online or work at home business you have to understand one thing right from the beginning.

You need to keep putting in a consistent effort and have a daily plan if you want to continue to see growth and experience success.

All too often, someone comes online and looks at an opportunity and wants to be making $5000 by next week because they already quit their job.  While this can be possible, it is not too probable.

While at the Pure Leverage Freedom Live event, the first speaker to kick off out marketing education was a WAHM (Work at Home Mom) Jackie Ulmer.

Jackie Ulmer at Pure Leverage Freedom Live

Jackie Ulmer at Pure Leverage Freedom Live

She has total proof that this practice of consistent effort pays off as she has been in the industry for 14 years.

One of the main ideas that she had for us was the idea of having a daily plan of action or a daily strategy.  Unless you are working on this daily, it really is not going to turn into a business and is more likely to end up like a hobby that you dabble in now and again and really see no apparent growth with.

Task do not need to be technologically advanced and be as simple as blogging and sharing your content daily on social media networks, emailing your list (about the blog post too!) and especially list building.

The more you build your list and the more you are consistently putting in effort to interact with your family of subscribers, the better they will get to know, like and trust you and want to do what you are doing and use the tools and courses you are using as well.

As they say, the money is in the list, or the fortune is in the follow up!

This Freedom live event was not as much eye opening to me as much as it was a jab in the face.  I have been slowly building my business since 2009 online and have had some great successes, like winning a trip to Kenya with Russell Brunson, though I still needed to have a major change in how I was building.

If you want to hear how I have won trips to Kenya and gain more insight to business growth online you can sign up right here to my Magnetic Sponsors newsletter right here:

I have focused a lot in the past on affiliate offers and promoted for others, while not always focusing on growth of my own list.

MAJOR MISTAKE FOR SURE!

When you hear about affiliate contest and social proof of sales statistics, you see these huge payouts in a short period of time.

That is because they had the right plan and continued to grow their list, engage that list, provide quality content to that list and felt obligated to share the right tools and courses with the list to help grow their business day in and day out.

When they sent an email, it went to hundreds of thousands possibly because they had set up their business the right way with consistent effort.

Jackie Ulmer also reminded us make sure we are out there to be found!  What she meant by this was that you really need to be sharing your content, videos, strategies and more all over the internet so people can find you.  She has built much of her business on free traffic strategies and organic traffic through being found all over the internet.

A google search for Jackie Ulmer just brought me back 586,000 results.  Now don’t you think her consistent effort has paid off here!

You need to start being consistent yourself and remember it does not have to be difficult in order to do this.  Block some time out each day if you are just starting online and take action on building your list first and always, sharing great content and syndicating it (sharing throughout the network)

If you want to find out the whole scoop on what Jackie Ulmer shared with us as well as many other marketers like Russell Brunson, Daegan Smith, Joel Peterson, Todd Gross, Mark Call, Michelle Pescosolido and many others, you need to come try out Pure Leverage and their wonderful tool suite.  They will be making the whole Freedom Live event available to purchase soon thanks to the great work of Royster productions, who filmed the whole event.

The only way you are going to see consistent growth is to continue to take continuous action and put continuous effort into your business!

Perfection Creates Procrastination

Pure Leverage CEO Joel Therien said it best himself at the beginning of the Pure Leverage Freedom Live event in Las Vegas: “Perfection Creates Procrastination”

Joel Therien thinks that Perfection Creates Procrastination

Joel Therien thinks that Perfection Creates Procrastination

We need to realize that we are all imperfect human beings and that if we strive to be perfect, especially in the process of building our businesses, we will never make any progress at all.

I have always lived on the mantra picked up by Bob “The Teacher” Jenkins, in TARL, or Take Action Revise Later and this has helped me win prizes such as ipads from Omar Martin, strategy sessions from Daegan Smith and even a trip to Kenya with Russell Brunson.

Yeah, all because I took action while others did not for some reason or another.

The thing you have to need to understand though it that I might have screwed up along the way and possibly had a do a video a few times if it was a live take…heck just the other day I was revamping my lead capture video for a book I published with my mastermind group and did the first video at least 31 times before I was able to feel comfortable with how it came out.

I am sure there are still errors in it, but I am going to get it out there and can improve it later on.

This might put me out of my comfort zone, but nowhere near a panic zone as I am in the learning zone in the process, figuring out what works and sounds good, as well as what doesn’t and sounds bad.

You need to forget about being perfect and forget about being comfortable all the time.  Even the well known marketers make mistakes (which are often many thousands of dollars more than the mistakes we make so keep it in perspective!)

Be confident and take action and it will keep getting easier and you will get more comfortable in the process, which will then allow you to try even more things to continue to grow your business.

If you keep trying to be perfect though and deleting all of your videos and posts until you think they look divine, you will never see the growth that others may view had you put up everything!

So go ahead and take action now, make your 1st or 101st video and load it up to Youtube and your blog and share the heck out of it and let people know what you are made of!
