Google’s New Speed Update is Your Perfect Foot-in-the-door!

If your main business (or side hustle) is providing web or marketing services to local businesses…listen up…

Big G has given you an amazing present to kick off 2019!

Many local marketers struggle to find clients.

They try all kinds of methods to get their foot-in-the-door…some work great and some flat out fail.

And part of the problem is finding a unique method…something every other local marketer is NOT doing.

So how would you like to have access to something UNIQUE?

Two of my favorite local marketers, Nick Ponte and Tom Gaddis have teamed up with another extremely successful local marketer, Paul James, to deliver a training/software combo that is truly amazing.

A software that’s able to find the perfect leads for your business!

This past July, Google quietly rolled out what they call their ‘Speed Update.’ This effects any business looking to show up in Google’s mobile search results.

According to Google’s own data, 40% of searches contain ‘Local Intent,’ so this new update has huge potential to impact local businesses in your area with slow loading sites.

And with the average load time of most websites being over 15 seconds, we feel pretty safe saying this an issue for your potential clients.

Bottom line…

No business wants their site labeled as ‘slow’ by Google and not show in search results when new customers are looking for their solution!

With Site Speed Profits, you can BE the solution to this new roadblock from Google!

You can offer the perfect fix-it service and be a hero by learning how to help small businesses speed up their sites, which will help them with their search rankings and overall user experience.

Nick, Tom, and Paul use Google’s speed update as the perfect foot-in-the-door to land new clients and deliver speed optimization for $97 to $297 per client.

Inside ‘Site Speed Profits’ you’ll discover:
– Why this is a HUGE advantage for you and how to make money with it
– How to easily fulfill this service yourself or have it completely outsourced (they reveal the actual outsourcer they use for their clients).
– Case Study by Nick Ponte showing how to easily close deals for $297 and up.
– You get one year of access to their custom ‘Speed Sniffer’ software. This is the only software that allows you to easily find prospects, run multiple speed tests, publish client getting reports, and email these prospects directly from the software!

I’m a huge fan of Tom and Nick’s and have profited from Paul’s training and software as well.

If you’d like a unique way to land new local clients…I recommend you check out Site Speed Profits!

How To Learn WordPress 5.0 Quickly

WordPress 5.0 (aka Gutenberg) was recently released and brings with it a MAJOR change to the WordPress editor.

The WordPress editor is now a “block based” editor. It enables you to create awesome website layouts using blocks (kind of like Divi and Elementor).

The new editor gives you the ability to move the blocks around and the blocks can contain text, images, audio, photo gallery, media, lists, buttons and more.

Needless to say, this is a MAJOR change for WordPress 5 and may take some time to get used to it.

One way to get up to speed quickly is to grab a course designed to teach you all about WordPress 5 and the new editor.

My buddy, Charles Harper and his partner Jonathan Teng created a brand-new 20-video course all about WordPress 5.0 entitled Expert Editing With WordPress 5.0.

Check out all the info included…

What Is A Sales Funnel And Why Every Business Needs At Least One

Do you know what a sales funnel is?

I bet you do.

Think about it…have you been to a restaurant or drive-thru lately?

Did the person taking your order offer you an additional item?

“Would you like fries with that?”

“Would you like to add a side salad?”

“Did you save room for desert?”

“Would like to go BIG?”

Those simple questions are perfect examples of a sales funnel at work.

A sales funnel is simply a process to take a person from point A to Point B.

Below is a simple sales funnel…

funnelize-review-sales-funnel

Businesses of all types use sales funnels to increase value, sell more products and deliver additional services.

Every business should have at least one sales funnel in place!

Below is a simple sales funnel that’s typically used to get a visitor’s email address and make the first offer…

funnelize-bonus-sales-funnel

Typically, a lead magnet (something of value – a PDF, video training, free product, etc.) is offered on the squeeze page in order to entice the visitor to give out their email address. The goal of the squeeze page is to get the visitor’s email address and move them to the next stage of the sales funnel.

The bridge page is used to deliver the lead magnet and introduce them to a product that will solve their problem or make their life easier in some way. The goal of the bridge page is to get the visitor to click thru to the sales page.

The sales page is where the product is explained and sold. This can be your product or service, or can be an affiliate offer.

As you can see, sales funnels are a vital aspect of any business.

Would you like to learn more about sales funnels and how to build them?

One of my favorite digital marketers, JayKay Dowdall, has just released a new training on how to build sales funnels…the right way!

JayKay is one of the best marketing trainers I’ve come across. His Destiny training on Facebook chatbots and his FB Masters Program on Facebook ads were stellar.

Learning how to build sales funnels is a great skill to learn for anyone in business, and is essential for anyone doing business online.

I highly recommend Funnelize!

In fact, I love the training so much that if you pick it up through me you’ll be invited to join my private Facebook group where we will work through the training together and help one another build sales funnels (plus some other great bonuses…watch the video for details).

How To Get Unstuck And Start Really Making Money Online in 2019

With only a few weeks left in 2018 I want to ask you a few questions…

How was your 2018?

Did you achieve your goals?

Did you attain the level of success you were striving for this year?

Did you make the kind of money online that you were hoping to earn in 2018?

If you answered “No” to any of these do you know why you missed the mark?

I can honestly answer that I have a few “No’s”.

NO I didn’t attain the success I was striving for and NO I didn’t make the amount of money online I was hoping to earn.

Where I think I went wrong is I got stuck when it came to two critically important aspects of my online business…

  1. Consistently growing and nurturing my email list(s)
  2. Creating my own products

I started the year with sales funnels that were going to help me grow my lists, but I abandoned them and ended up going back to more familiar, less predictable methods of income generation like product reviews.

And though I’ve had a couple of product ideas this year, I’ve been unable to force myself to either start them or see them through to completion.

In fact, I can remember a Saturday where I had planned to knock out a full video course, but instead I wasted the day watching Netflix.

Am I the only one? Or, can you relate?

Do you feel like your stuck and can’t seem to see your way forward?

Are you concerned, as you see people on Facebook posting about their detailed plans for 2019, that your 2019 will be no better than your 2018?

If so, I want to recommend an excellent resource that will help you:

  • Learn the truth about succeeding online from a 20+ year marketing veteran
  • Focus on the few things that really matter
  • Discover which tools you really need (much less than you think)
  • Pick a guaranteed smoking hot money niche
  • Create multiple types of products fast
  • Much, much more!

It’s called Get Unstuck and the video on the next page will explain everything…

Are You Happy With Your Web Hosting?

One of the most foundational aspects of running a business online is having fast, reliable web hosting.

WordPress.com is a great place to start, but eventually you will find that having your own hosting affords you more flexibility and growth potential.

(Side note – this blog will be moving to it’s own hosting in January. All my other sites are run on hosting other than WordPress.com)

There are thousands of web hosting companies to chose from, which means just about everyone has an opinion about who is the best…and worst.

Usually that opinion is formed based on one’s experience with a given hosting company, and can vary from month to month.

When I got started online I signed up with a fairly well-known hoster on one of their special entry-level, low-cost plans.

Performance was average and reliability was OK.

When the renewal fees hit…oh, boy…things got expensive real quick!

I went from paying a reasonable fee for basic hosting to paying premium-level prices for basic hosting.

And this is the tactic used by MANY hosting companies…get you in cheap and then bank on your hesitation to move.

Needless to say, I eventually forced myself to migrate from that hoster to one that offered a more reasonable price-performance ratio and that I knew wouldn’t hit me with exorbitant renewal fees.

That hoster is Light Speed and they are offering an incredible deal right now…

You can get 3 years of quality web hosting for the price of 1!

Here’s all the features you get:

  • Domains Allowed – Unlimited
  • Free SSL – Unlimited
  • Disk Space – Unmetered
  • Bandwidth – Unmetered
  • 24/7/365 Support – YES!
  • Backups via cPanel – YES!
  • 99.9% Uptime – YES!
  • Free/Instant Setup – YES!
  • Subdomains – YES!
  • FTP Accounts – YES!
  • WordPress – ABSOLUTELY!
  • Much, Much More!!

On top of the excellent 3-for-1 web hosting deal, they are also throwing in some great sign-up bonuses like:

  • Site Speed Secrets Guide PLUS Video Upgrade
  • Boost Your Website Traffic Guide
  • On-Page SEO Blueprint
  • Many More!

One of the coolest things about this deal is that Light Speed recognizes that many people are stuck in current hosting contracts so they’re doing this (taken right from the sales page)…

WAIT!!! You’re Probably Thinking…
“This sounds great, but I already HAVE hosting!”
You can see this is a great deal, but there’s a problem:

You already have a contract with another hosting company.

NO PROBLEM!

Your three years of hosting can start at ANY time.

The clock does not start ticking when you purchase, it starts when you activate your account!

Use it now, or 6 months in the future, or even years from now.

It’s ok. We’ll be here when you’re ready.

We aren’t going anywhere, we have tens of thousands of customers to serve!

Isn’t that awesome? Buy now…activate when you’re ready!

If you’re ready to take the next step with your WordPress hosting or you’re just unhappy with your current web hosting provider…

A Simple Way To Boost Web Traffic To Your Website, Blog or Offer

You’ve probably heard this time and time again, but it bears repeating…

Traffic is the lifeblood of the Internet.

Without web traffic your site is a ghost town…no views, no comments, no sign ups, no purchases…nothing!

The problem is that all traffic is NOT equal.

So, a more accurate mantra might be…

Targeted traffic is the lifeblood of conversions.

What’s the difference?

Generic web traffic is any visitor to your site, whether they are interested in your content or not.

Whereas, targeted traffic is visitors that are interested in your content and are more likely to take the desired action you want from them.

Now when it comes to web traffic you typically see two types mentioned…free and paid.

In reality, if you value your time there is no such thing as free traffic.

 

time-or-money

One way (money) or another (time) you are paying for your web traffic.

*Note – One exception to this rule is personalities that have a huge audience and are able to tweet or quickly post content that garners a huge response.

But for the rest of us mere mortals we have to try a little bit harder to get traffic.

Let’s look at how the typical paid vs free traffic scenario plays out…

Most paid traffic, no matter the medium (text or video or both), takes time to research and create. And then of course you have to run the ad and hope that your ad and targeting attracts the visitors you want.

The same goes for free traffic.

Time is spent thinking about the message and creating the content with the hopes that your audience will take action.

The difference?

With free traffic you ALSO have to spend time trying to get eyeballs on your blog post, website, social media post or video.

So let’s compare…

  1. Spend an hour creating a great blog post and then create an ad and run it at $5 per day for a week. Cost – $35 (plus your creative time)
  2. Spend an hour writing a great blog post and then an hour a day for a week promoting that post. Cost – 7 hours (plus your creative time)

Let’s say each method brings you 300 clicks to your site…which method makes the most sense to you?

I would much rather go the paid route and use my extra time to create more content.

Here it comes…

“I don’t know how to run Facebook ads or YouTube ads” OR “I’ll blow all of my money.”

You know what, you’re probably right. (Gasp!)

I’ve spent tons of money on paid traffic training and I still struggle to create profitable campaigns.

It’s tough to get it right, but when you do…WOW!

On the flip side, I’ve also exhausted myself trying to get free traffic to my reviews and posts.

What if there was a simpler way?

A way to get quality, targeted organic traffic without all the headaches?

THERE IS!

In fact, this paid traffic method is so simple…here are the 3 steps…

  1. Purchase one of the traffic packages
  2. Submit your target link
  3. Sit back and watch the traffic roll in

Yep, it’s that simple!

(Well, in all honesty you should tweak your target content to maximize conversions but you get the point.)

So, what is this super-simple traffic method?

It’s called the Abandoned Traffic Marketplace and was created by Marty Bostick.

Marty has spent the past nine months buying domains abandoned by other marketers and businesses that still have a steady flow of traffic.

Marty has seen such a large volume of clicks from his organic traffic network that he has decided to open it up to the public.

Let me answer a few quick questions for you…

Which countries does this traffic come from?

Marty has created two traffic packages, Standard and Premium. Standard traffic can come from anywhere. Premium traffic is filtered so that 85%+ comes from Tier-1 countries like the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

What niches is this traffic optimized for?

Check out the image below to see the niches you can currently choose from (Marty is adding more niches as additional domains become available and traffic networks are created):

Abandoned-Traffic-Marketplace

Does Marty guarantee conversions from this traffic?

Absolutely not! Neither does Facebook, Google or any other legitimate paid traffic platform. Conversions involve so many factors that are outside of Marty’s control that there is no way to guarantee them.

What Marty guarantees is real human, organic and targeted clicks to your website.

All of this for less than a decent pizza!

Special Update – My Initial Results

I’ve been testing Marty’s service for a couple of days and so far I’m encouraged by the initial results…

First up, Marty was gracious enough to set me up with a temporary package that I directed at this blog post…

ATM-Clicks

As you can see, there have been 37 clicks to this post since Monday.

Unfortunately, because I’m using the free WordPress site for this blog I don’t know how many of those visitors clicked through to Marty’s sales page or purchased his service. (I’m moving IMwithJay to it’s own site in January.)

Next up, I bought Marty’s Premium package and pointed it at an optin page offering a rolodex of free video and marketing graphics sites…

ATM-Jay-Clicks

The traffic started flowing around Noon yesterday and so far…9 clicks.

Even better, I’ve had 3 optins…

ATM-GL-Optins

I’m not sure yet why the landing page says 7 visits and my link tracking says 9, but I will
definitely keep an eye on it.

As I stated above, Marty doesn’t guarantee conversions…but I’m starting to see them!

If my optin rate stays between 25-40% I stand to gain between 75 to 120 new subscribers per month.

Also note, this particular lead magnet is geared towards affiliate sales with offers on the thank you page, in the PDF and within the follow-up email sequence.

My point being…there is plenty of opportunity for me to earn way more than what Marty’s traffic service costs me.

And all I had to do was pick a traffic package, submit my link and sit back and watch the clicks roll in.

This is as simple as it gets!

I’m very encouraged by these initial results and plan to do a more detailed case study after a few weeks of traffic.

Marty has created one of the simplest methods of paid traffic I’ve ever seen.

If you’d like to give it a try, head over to the Abandoned Traffic Marketplace, select the package you want, submit your link and watch the clicks roll in.
