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…

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.



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?


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):


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…


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…


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

Even better, I’ve had 3 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.

Calling All Ethical Internet Marketers

The world of Internet Marketing is a microcosm of our greater society.

There’s the rich (people killing it online), the poor (people struggling to make their first sale) and tons of people somewhere in-between.

There’s honest, ethical marketers that try to put the customer first by creating and promoting solid training and software…

And then there’s the seedy underbelly of the Internet Marketing world that is getting rich by tricking people with “push button” software and training that promises to make them rich overnight with no effort.

Many people have made the mistake of buying these “get rich quick” training and software programs in the hopes of instantly making money online.

In fact, I’ve personally wasted thousands of dollars on sub-par training and half-working software released by unscrupulous product vendors and so-called Internet Marketing “experts and coaches”.

That’s why it’s so important to connect with honest and ethical marketers.

The cool thing is that the Internet makes it possible to connect with like-minded marketers all over the world.

One group I highly recommend is Society 11.

Society 11 is a private membership created by Andy Brocklehurst and Curt Crowley designed to help people build ethical online businesses.

It’s a fantastic group that has helped me connect with other marketers, as well as get past problems in my business that I otherwise would have continued to struggle with.

I created a quick review that you can watch below…

Whether you’re just starting out OR you’re an experienced and successful Internet Marketer, I highly recommend that you check out Society 11.

How To Find A Niche That Can Actually Make You Money

One of the challenges when you get started in Internet marketing is finding a niche.

There are thousands upon thousands of niches, which makes choosing one a bit confusing.

To make it worse, one expert tells you to choose something you have a passion for and another one tells you to pick your niche based on a niche’s popularity (or how in-demand it is).

The truth…

They’re both right!

The best thing to do is pick a niche that is in-demand AND that you have some interest in. That way you will enjoy the work of building content for the niche and also have a solid chance of making money at it.

But how do you go about finding profitable niches?

Matt Garrett has developed a nifty tool that helps you find profitable niches and gives you a plan of attack for dominating that niche.

It’s called Niche Reaper.

Niche Reaper is a cloud-based software that is constantly evaluating and adding qualified buyer keywords to its huge database every few minutes.

What makes up a qualified buyer keyword?

Search Volume – The first criteria is that the keyword has to have 200 or more searches per month.

Cost Per Click Value – The second criteria is that the keyword has to have a minimum CPC of at least $0.25.

Commercial Intent – The final criteria is the keyword phrase must have a commercial intent score of at least 25 or higher.

Only keyword phrases that meet this strict set of criteria are added to the database.

So how do you search through the almost 2 Million keyword database?

It’s easy…

Niche Reaper gives you a set of filters that you can easily tweak to get only the results you want.


In the above screenshot I filtered by:

Difficulty less than or equal to 40, Search Volume greater than or equal to 1000, and number of words greater than or equal to 4. That yielded over 8500 results.

Obviously, I needed to filter down even more. So I added a keyword of “dog”.


That yielded 176 results.

As you can see, Niche Reaper is giving me valuable data about keyword phrases I can target in the dog niche.

The best thing about what Matt’s done with Niche Reaper is that on top of the software that is constantly adding data, he has also included 18 training videos on how to utilize the data Niche Reaper provides.

Everything from setting up a simple blog to press release marketing, article marketing and social marketing.

Niche Reaper is definitely a tool that is best seen in action…

How To Get Your Internet Marketing Business Out Of A Rut

Is your Internet Marketing business currently stuck in a rut?

One of the biggest challenges many online entrepreneurs face is developing patterns that cause their businesses to fall into ruts.

You know, doing the same thing the same way over and over and expecting a different result.

Wait, isn’t that the definition of insanity?


When that “same thing” is producing good results it’s great.

But when it’s not, and you keep hammering away at it…

…things can get down right depressing!

Anyway, “business ruts” can cripple your business for a couple of reasons…

The most obvious reason is that if the method you’re using isn’t working you’re not making any money.

You end up with no money to pay bills, let alone put back into your business.

The result of not making money can lead to desperation, depression and taking risks or spending money you don’t have.

This ultimately cripples your business.

A couple words of advice from someone who has struggled with “ruts”…

First, if the methods you keep doing over and over again aren’t producing any results…STOP DOING THEM!

Failure is instructive but there are limits to how much it can teach.

Hear me though, what I’m not saying is to try a method once or twice and then give up and move on.

Give whatever method you’re using enough time for you to truly learn it and try it.

But, set a goal or time limit on it so you don’t simply nose dive into a rut.

Learn it, try it, tweak it, learn it some more, try it, tweak it…repeat until you reach your goal or the time limit you set has expired.

The simple reality is this…not all methods work for everyone…and it’s OK.

Secondly, if the methods you keep doing over and over only produce a small return…STOP DOING THEM!

This is where I see the most danger.

You follow a method and get excited about a little bit of return. 🙂

That little return is enough to motivate you to keep doing the same method over and over, not realizing that the method may never produce anything but that little return each time. (Believe me, I have been lost in this limbo many, many times.)

So how do you break out of these ruts?

I highly recommend that you surround yourself with like-minded individuals that have similar goals to yours.

A great way of doing this is through group coaching or by joining a mastermind group.


Because these types of training/mentoring groups are typically affordable and offer opportunities for you to engage with experts that can help you assess your efforts and course-correct when needed.

I have found that the feedback on ideas, answers to questions and the encouragement are priceless.

Below are a few group coaching/mastermind groups that I highly recommend based on experience I’ve had with each…

Internet Marketing Group Coaching/Mastermind

Society 11 – Society 11 is a membership run by Andy Brocklehurst and Curt Crowley. Once inside you get access to IM software and Training that can help give you new ideas or methods for generating income online.

One of the most valuable benefits of Society 11 is the private Facebook group where you can engage with other online entrepreneurs, ask questions and learn about member-only discounts on products released by Society 11 members.

Society 11 is a great group for intermediate to advanced marketers. Beginners can benefit from it, but I think the DAB Coaching is better suited for people just starting out.

DAB Group Coaching – DAB Group Coaching is group coaching run by 20-year digital marketing veterans, Barbara Ling and Dennis Becker.

I think this is the best group for beginners or people that have been struggling to build an online income.

Barb and Dennis take a very structured approach to group coaching with modules drip-fed to you daily so that you can slowly absorb the content and not get overwhelmed.

They also do live Ask-Me-Anythings as a forum for getting your questions answered.

What’s cool is that for a single dollar ($1) you can try DAB Group Coaching for 7 days to see if you like the teaching style, structure and value of the content.

If you are interested in local marketing and specifically SEO, the Semantic Mastermind is the place to be…

Semantic Mastery Mastermind – The first mastermind I ever joined was with Semantic Mastery. This team of local marketers and SEO professionals deliver strategies and techniques unmatched in the local marketing space.

In fact, they continually discover and perfect SEO tactics that nobody else talks about.

This group is perfect for SEO beginners and SEO professionals.

In this mastermind you get access to their scheduled live mastermind trainings, past trainings, several of Semantic Mastery’s core courses and discounts on their high ticket courses and Serp Space services.

Video Marketing Membership

Lastly, but absolutely not least…there’s an amazing membership for anyone interested in or working in video marketing…

It’s called Video Marketing Insider and it’s run by video marketing expert, Adam Payne.

Adam has focused almost entirely on video marketing and become one of the most well-respected video experts in Internet Marketing circles.

There is so much video marketing goodness inside of VMI it should be illegal.

Besides the training, you also get access to exclusive video marketing software and a private Facebook group.

Whether you jump into any of these groups or not, I highly recommend that you seek out like-minded people to bounce ideas off of and help one another push forward to grow your online businesses.

The Truth About The September 25th YouTube Change

Beginning on September 25th, 2018, YouTube is making two changes that affect every one that embeds videos on optin pages, sales pages or websites.

Please keep in mind, these changes only affect YouTube videos that are embedded on your web pages.

But, these changes can seriously degrade the user experience you want your visitors to have on your sales pages or websites.

Change #1 – Related Videos Will Always Be Shown

Typically, when YouTube videos are embedded on sales pages the rel parameter is set to 0 to prevent related videos from being shown at the end of the video.

This is done to keep the sales page experience clean, and to avoid having competing videos show up in the related videos.

On or after September 25, 2018 this behavior changes as detailed below:

The behavior for the rel parameter is changing on or after September 25, 2018. The effect of the change is that you will not be able to disable related videos. However, you will have the option of specifying that the related videos shown in the player should be from the same channel as the video that was just played.

To be more specific:

  • Prior to the change, if the parameter’s value is set to 0, then the player does not show related videos.
  • After the change, if the rel parameter is set to 0, the player will show related videos that are from the same channel as the video that was just played.

Having related videos at the end of a video on any web page creates a distraction for the viewer, and can entice them to click away from your site.

It’s nice of YouTube to allow us to force the related videos to be from our channel, but the change still detracts from the clean, distraction-less sales pages we’re used to and that we want our visitors to experience.

Change #2 – Video Info Will Always Be Shown

Here’s a direct quote:

The showinfo parameter, which indicates whether the player should display information like the video title and uploader before the video starts playing, is also being deprecated. Following the change, the channel avatar and video title will always display before playback begins, when playback is paused, and when playback ends. The avatar being displayed is new behavior that will be consistent across all embedded players.

Again, YouTube’s change is messing with the experience we are trying to create for the visitors on OUR websites.

So, what are marketers and business owners to do to protect your websites from these changes?

I created a video talking about it, have a look…(or skip to my conclusion below)

In conclusion, here are 2 ways to avoid being affected by the September 25th YouTube change:

  1. Don’t use YouTube as your video host. Host your videos on Vimeo or Amazon S3 or your web hosting.
  2. Use a video player that can overcome the Sept. 25th changes, as well as help with the video autoplay issue that Chrome and Safari have cracked down on.

One thing to note, if you mainly use YouTube embeds as a means of boosting the rankings of your videos (SEO) then you definitely want to keep using the YouTube embed codes. Just make sure you utilize the rel=0 or whatever the new parameter will be to force the related videos to be videos from your channel.

If you want to keep using YouTube as your video host AND want full control over the video experience on your optin pages, sales pages and websites…I recommend using a video player.

Explaindio Player is a simple, cloud-based video player that returns control of your website’s video experience to you. For a limited time, there’s a 14-day free trial available for Explaindio Player.

What Are Done-For-You Sales Funnels And Are They Right For You?

As soon as you dip your toes into the wonderful world of “Internet Marketing” you are introduced to “sales funnels”.

Click Here To Register For A Special Webinar About Done-For-You Sales Funnels

Sales funnels are those series of offers you’re presented with when you opt in or purchase products online.

Sales funnels are used to upsell people when they are already in buying mode.

It’s not devious, it’s the same principle as being offered fries, a larger size or a dessert at your favorite fast food restaurant.

The biggest challenge for most new marketers (heck, and many established marketers) is putting together sales funnels that actually work…meaning they convert…meaning they actually make money.

Sales funnels require strong copywriting, web design and sales platform skills and can be very time-consuming to create and perfect.

That’s why done-for-you sales funnels have become so popular.

They take much of the guess-work out of online product promotion.

For a price, newbie and experienced marketers can buy access to existing sales funnels that are proven to convert without having to do all the sales-funnel-perfecting themselves.

Many of these done-for-you sales funnels consist of low-priced offers that upsell to high ticket offers that can pay upwards of $1000+ per sale.

Pros Of Done-For-You Sales Funnels

  • No need to spend countless hours creating and perfecting your own sales funnels
  • 100% commissions for many of the low-priced offers within the funnel
  • Primary focus is driving traffic to the sales funnels

Cons of Done-For-You Sales Funnels

  • Price for some of these done-for-you systems can be out of reach for many
  • You don’t learn the skills needed to become a self-sustaining Digital Marketer
  • You put yourself at the mercy of the DFY Sales Funnel provider and any changes they chose to impose…including shutting down the program

 Are Done-For-You Sales Funnels Right For You?

What’s interesting about these DFY systems is that I see both newbie and experienced marketers utilizing them.

For both newbies and experienced marketers, the allure of the high ticket commissions is powerful.

Think about it…sell one high ticket offer and make $1000 OR try to sell 100 of those $10 offers…

Which would you rather do?

Obviously, we would all rather make the high ticket sales.

And with DFY sales funnels, the majority of those high ticket sales come by introducing people to the low ticket introductory offers and then letting the sales funnel do its job.

Seems easy enough, right?


This is definitely where experienced marketers that know how to drive traffic have a head start.

But, if you’re a newbie…and are willing to spend time getting really good at one or two traffic methods…you can keep a steady stream of sign ups flowing as well.

Maybe the bigger question is this…

How likely is it you will make your money back or, better yet, profit from Done-For-You Sales Funnels?

Well, that one is harder to answer…even if you’re an experienced marketer.

There are no guarantees in Internet Marketing, or in business in general.

There’s risk when investing in DFY funnels…just like there is with paid advertising, SEO link building and thousands of other business investments and activities.

I’ve seen people make multiple $1000 commissions in a day, while others only make low ticket ones.

Everyone is different…some will buy and push until they make a huge profit…others will buy, try for a few days or weeks and give up.

Which one are you?

My best advice is to educate yourself on Done-For-You Sales Funnels and see if you think they’re a good fit for your abilities and your business.

To assist you, I’d like to invite you to a special webinar being held on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 8pm EST where one such DFY Sales Funnel opportunity will be revealed.
