Thinking about that Subject heading (“Actionable Items”) makes me laugh; if you’ve been paying attention, just about everything I post is ‘actionable’ meaning ‘act now and good things will happen later’ in your life and business.
Where to get a great logo…
The first thing I wanted to share with you today is a great and inexpensive resource for creating logos. GotLogos.com is run by a guy named Daniel; I’ve used his talents for several of my websites’ logos. You can get a killer professionally designed logo for $25. Great value, try them out (someday I may ask him to offer a discount for webmasters who visit Cool Site of the Day…stay tuned).
Affiliate Marketing Recommendation…
I ran into Gary McNelley of MarketHealth at the Search Engine Strategies Trade Show last week. Gary’s a great guy and his company, MarketHealth, sells natural, herbal health and wellness products (yeah, that’s a mouthful but all you need to know is that there’s a HUGE market for organic health and beauty products). Anyway, I’ve been a Super Affiliate of MarketHealth (ever since 2006 when I started generating over $30,000 in monthly commissions as an affiliate of MarketHealth products).
Here’s the good news: MarketHealth has created a turn-key affiliate program for people who want to sell their products but don’t have the time or talent to start from scratch. All you have to do is visit HerbalBiz and signup to create your own unique storefront (and then use WMC to drive traffic to it 😉
Here are just a few reasons why it makes sense to work with MarketHealth (and, no, this has nothing to do with multi-level marketing or MLM):
- Make 50% of the purchase price
- No Online Experience Required
- No Customer Service
- No Warehouse or Inventory
- Sell over 50 well known Health and Beauty Products
- Unlimited Income Potential
- Work from Anywhere
- Set Your Own Hours
I don’t know about you but those are all the reasons that led me to build an online business. And like most people, I wanted to deal with a good and honest program that offers the greatest odds of making money. Well, MarketHealth and their HerbalBiz package is about as good as it gets (in the coming weeks I’ll be sharing with you the rest of my highest rated affiliate opportunities). If you have any questions after visiting HerbalBiz, shoot me an e-mail–I’ll be happy to help in any way that I can.
One Smart Guy…
I’m saving the best for last but this is quite good also: somehow I tripped over Ian Lurie’s web site yesterday, Conversation Marketing. First off, Ian is the kind of guy I’d like to work with someday but, in the meantime, Ian is going to teach me (and you) quite a few things that are essential to building and marketing web sites intelligently. Just check out his list of 59 Things You Should Be Doing But Probably Aren’t. Truly great thinking and a list worth reviewing once a week.
Search Engine Traffic. Are You Paying Attention?
Finally, for those of you who took me up on my offer to set up your Web Marketing Concepts account, smart move! I couldn’t handle all the requests that came in but you’ll be happy to know that whether you use my services or go it alone, the results are worth it.
Here are two screen shots of our traffic stats from cpanel. In this image you can see the number of unique visitors shooting up in the second month of indexing (from 1,672 to 2,740 unique visitors). I gotta tell you, on average, I value a web site visitor at $.25 so that traffic is worth close to $700 to me. What is the cost of a Web Marketing Concepts membership? $49.94 per month (just increased from $29.95 as I said it would. Still a sick deal.). Who’s smiling now?
This screen shot shows how many times the pages in this account have been indexed. I know it’s hard to see but Yahoo’s spider has hit the site over 2,000 times and the Googlebot has visited almost 1,000 times…and we’re just getting started. Remember the WMC system builds up to 5,500 content pages per account so when the spiders start indexing all those pages it’s ‘HELLO TRAFFIC!’
If you haven’t signed up for a WMC account yet you’re doing yourself a big hurt. I’m putting the finishing touches on my WMC mindmap (explains in detail how to get the most from WMC). If you’ve opened an account and are ready to fly, send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to send you a free copy.
Sign up today before Jim raises the price again or, as he’s suggested, removes WMC from public access.
That’s all for today.
