Hi there again,

In marketing you are never going to stop learning. The process of educating oneself is going to be unending.And really there will always be something you need to find out about everyday. Maybe more than one thing, in the sense of imperative.

It would be possible at any time to sink under the weight of things to be done and to be learnt. In fact just thinking about it could cause health problems with stress related conditions. So how should we deal with it?

Well I was lucky to some extent early on inasmuch as my first mentor,Alex Jeffreys, taught me and everyone else that one’s daily work should consist of one thing really-one’s most important task. One’s MIT. Simple. It stuck with me and to this day I can say I follow this. Doing my most important task is first on the list. Sure there are one or two other things that occur, but really at the end of the day, things which are in the category below most important either ascend to most important or slip out of view.

This takes care of one part of the problem. The other was dealt with by Dean Holland in a video of his recently, talking about the subject of overwhelm. And again he narrowed our true areas of concern to one thing-immersion in one subject at a time. After all, one cannot learn everything at once without have a knowledge chip inserted somewhere in one’s being. Simple. In case you want a knowledge based website then try at: http://www.marketingwithmikeram.co 

It is full of the basic necessary information required..

There are other ways of dealing with overwhelm, which is just to write out all of things one think one has to do then ordering them according to necessity. Again that way one discards some automatically, and for the rest one knocks them off in a logical, unhurried way. that is the theory anyway.But in good faith one cannot do anything six feet under so if in doubt chill out for a bit!

Seriously there are very few things that cannot be left for a while if one is very stressed. These are…..ringing for an ambulance in the case of heart attacker or at least a doctor, or in case of a stroke, getting out of the house in case of a fire, or an armed burglar, or taking the dog for a walk if it says it wants to go out! Otherwise you are the controller! Control at all times.Do not be controlled. But do become an expert in one thing at a time. Like I am doing with Facebook Ads at the moment.Or that is the intention anyway, and as I have a course by Justin Brooks to follow I will get there one day!

Hello there, I hope you are well.

It as suddenly struck me that in terms of blogging I am probably not doing it ‘right’. I would say I was just deciding to sit down and write a stream of consciousness about my marketing and hoping it passes as some sort of blog post. Very unprofessional.

Last week I had a few more  insights into the world of key words, longtail key words and how to find out about them, and how I should probably create my content around the key words I wanted to use.Ho hum. Will this marketing thing ever become simple?

I am really up against hardened professionals it seems. No peace for the wicked!

I spent last week getting marketing materials ready for the launch of the Internet Profits latest Front End Offer, The Affiliate Marketers Playbook. Having to suddenly pull together my efforts for a launch concentrated the mind wonderfully as I first developed the Optin funnel, then attached it to the Autoresponder, then filmed some Free videos to launch, advertising the arrival of the new Free+ Shipping Offer.

I found it amusing and salutary to deal with a sort of deadline, having over the past few weeks felt as though I was drifting. The natural urgency of creating a funnel etc was invigorating. Probably i could do with a few more like that. Now I am putting together the Facebook campaigns for the Affiliate marketers playbook. Obviously the ‘paid ‘ ads are supposed to be more immediately productive the the unpaid ads. I am not at the point yet where I can engender subscriptions to my list from my ads. I think my progress has to be one of increasing my accuracy in my ads so that I have the method of getting lead captures honed down to a fine point. Hitting the targets better. It is largely a matter of learning and gaining experience with this sort campaign.

Anyway,what is the Affiliate Marketer’s Playbook?

Well it is a short book written by Dean Holland. It’s main thesis is the traditional affiliate marketing is not profitable for affiliates and they will spend more on advertising than they claw back in commissions on front end sales. So it is a non profitable undertaking these days, whereas it used to be very worthwhile when ad costs were cheap.

However if someone is prepared to offer affiliate programmes where there are commissions to be made on the backend sales and premium products then one can still do well at Affiliate Marketing.

There are 4 areas to concentrate on basically. Targeted Traffic,Email list Building,Follow up,Sales system.

The answer to finding success if one is to, is keeping things simple and not to try and master all of the ways of getting traffic. Having one ‘free’ traffic strategy and one paid traffic strategy is sufficient. There are loads of people on the Internet,but locating the right people for your business is the objective which one can do in various ways,accordingto one’s platform.

Stage 2 is List Building, which you initiate by making an irresistible offer of value for Free as a quid pro quo for subscribing to the list you are building. Basically this is done through an Optin form.Once someone has opted in to get your free offer, then they are put on your autoresponder.

Now the third stage is the follow up once people are on your list, whereby you write to them regularly, giving free education tips and telling them about your life so that they see you as someone they can trust to give them good value.

This process is never ending in as much as you will be sending them daily emails, no matter how far along the process they are. The trick is to always have stores to tell and products to promote.

Finally there is the Sales system. Once someone is on your list they are going through the sales funnel appropriate to their position on the list. If you have a number of products to offer then the subscribers will be introduced into different funnels and different parts of each funnel. Drawing diagrams of this process explains better than words can what this looks like. Suffice it to say sales Funnels can be as simple or as complex as you like.

Anyway that is in short form what the basics of Affiliate Marketing are. In the Affiliate Marketers playbook there are another level of eduction in associated videos which flesh out the teaching. In usual Dean Holland style the whole package is succinct and easy to understand.

Of course at the end he shows the reader what his company is about and how it is the best provider of a good Affiliate Marketing business model. Who am I to disagree, given that I am a partner, and I am persuading you of the same?

Perhaps it is best to find out for yourself and get this Free Product for the price of shipping and handling. Please go to:https://mikeram.clickfunnels.com/optinlc74v8vt





Hello again,

I hope you are all doing well. The last couple of days I have been setting up my next Facebook Ads campaign and trying to structure it in the recommended way- ie having a Cold Ads campaign, leading into a Warm Ads campaign. Now it is a slightly unknown quantity because I do not know for sure whether the Facebook pixel which is personal to me will cut in or not to allow the Warm Ads to simply go to people who showed sufficient interest in my Cold Ad and watched the video,. I watch the demo for setting it all up, yet am still slightly perplexed when I actually set the ads up for myself. Maybe things have changed on facebook since the demos I watched took place. It is little annoying that I cannot get it exactly because therein I feel lies a strong key to any future success moving forward which I have.

So over the next few days much will be revealed but will it yield what I desire. Hell, there is a never ending stream of little things I have to master in this business as I have previously mentioned and one never knows quite how many of these fiddly details need to be attended to.

The promise of riches of course drives me forward though I would like to think that also it is the idea that I could turn some deserving cases into online marketers too in this way. Some people have dreams which need to be attended to and with dedication.They are in pursuit of more than the ‘life of quiet desperation’ which is running its humdrum course. I think if I had something really mind-blowing beyond what is on offer in this affiliate space I would want to turn as many people on as possible. It is time to move beyond the narrow notion of ‘looking only after oneself’ and ‘each man to himself’ which has dominated too much of the last 40 years. These counter-evolutionary ideas have simply created a few very very wealthy people, while the majority too often are really hard pushed. It is time we learned to become part of a greater whole again and lost some of our seperateness from one another. Seriously,we only really gain if the majority do too, and the odiously selfish bores who hoard billions really have had their day. It is time to get the world ready for a better future and a more sharing time.Evolution after all needs to move in the right direction.

Our times of separation from one another have gone on for too long. We are just the same deal replicated over and over and it is time to be aware of this.We are intrinsically Love and that is what binds us here. The seperation from one another is too painful to be allowed to continue. Evolution must take place.

Since what I can at present share and turn you on to is the Perfect Offer,which shows how to make yourself a positive influence on the market place, please got to: https://mikeram.clickfunnels.com/optingx65g1dk
