Why Use a Customer Avatar?

A customer avatar allows you to work out what you can do to help your customer. With an avatar you can focus your marketing to what a customer will want and buy. By using an avatar you will know if the customer is likely to buy and whether it is worth targeting that customer for a campaign. It is even possible  to work out if video marketing would work.

Below is an example using a mind map

Let me ask you – do you want to make money online?

A very simple, but straightforward question. And I want you answer it.

Do you want to work from home? Do you want to actually live that live that until now only existed in the flashy sales letters you are reading every now and then.

Well… What’s holding you back?

What is it that doesn’t allow you to achieve the financial success that you have always dreamed of?


A price of training you cannot afford?

No plan?

Not having a list?

Not knowing what to do?

Any of these things?

…or… is it YOU? Maybe your biggest problem is NOT the traffic, NOT the lack of step-by-step instructions, NOT the list, but YOU.

You, just like everyone else, have 24 hours in a day.

You can spend this time doing something productive, or you can just let the time pass by.

And you know that you can be putting more effort in what you do.

After all, you are on Facebook right now reading this post!

So instead of spending hours browsing through Facebook every day, you can do something productive. Do something what would make you feel good at the end of the day. What would make you feel good at the end of the week, month, year, 10 years from now!

…however sometimes you are doing your best, and the problem is not within you – but within the external factors.

Sometimes it is the list, the traffic, the system, the lack of a step-by-step plan

Well, what if you could solve all of these problems, what if there would be a system where you would be able to generate free traffic, build a list for free, promote products for free, get a detailed step-by-step instructions – also free?

“Okay… Where’s the catch…?” – I hear you say

And even though I’m going to say that there is no catch, you won’t believe me, so I won’t even bother.

Instead I want to give you an opportunity to start your online business that you’ve always dreamed of TODAY, and WITHOUT PAYING A CENT:

The unlimited potential of video products



Theunlimited potential of video products

Video publishing is one of the easiest ways to create a product for sale on the Internet, and it can be a very profitable business. Even though it’s easier to publish a book than ever before, it’s possible to create a video product in a fraction of the time required to create a book.

When you consider the amount of time it takes for a book by a new author to be accepted by a publisher, edited, manufactured, distributed, and marketed, several years can go by before authors see any revenue for all their hard work. Self-publishing is a good alternative for authors to consider, but the production and marketing costs can be very high. The creation of video products for sale on the Internet is a much easier way to generate a revenue stream.

The art of video publishing
If you’re already convinced that the creation of video products is a powerful Internet marketing tool to drive traffic and sales, here are some important questions to consider before you jump into the production process:

Are you a good communicator? Can you tell a story? Can you explain how to do something in simple terms? Do you have specialized knowledge that can be turned into a product that gives value to customers? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you have all the knowledge and experience you need to create a video product that can generate a nice revenue stream. It takes experienced authors from six months to a year to write a book, but even first-time video producers can plan, script, film, and edit a professional-quality video product in six weeks.

Who will shoot your video? If you have a webcam with a built-in microphone, you already have experience shooting home videos. If you don’t have a webcam, you can probably partner with someone who has a lot of experience.

Who will edit your video? Even a 15-minute video can take several hours to edit professionally. If you’ve been practicing with home videos, now is the time to show your skills on the Internet. If you’ve never edited before, you can find someone to look at your raw footage and teach you how to do some simple editing, which will improve the quality of the finished video product enormously. Video companies generally charge from $50 to $100 an hour, depending on the effects you want edited into your product.

The power of video products on the Worldwide Web
Video podcasting and vlogging are tools that offer unlimited potential for increasing traffic to your web site or blog and for creating revenue streams through the sale of video products. Individual video content producers can create revenues streams from successful videos that last for years. One video publisher I checked out has produced almost 30 videos that have given the producer a monthly income between $8,000 and $10,000 dollars for over four years. This video publisher reports that most of these videos are still selling-and not one has lost money.

How To Leverage Other People’s Time So You Can Grow

By now you’ll be aware of how much work is involved when it comes to making money online. There’s product creation, creating promotional material for your affiliates, ensuring your site is in working order, list-building, getting traffic, link building and so much more.

And with all these important to-do tasks it can be hard at times to focus on getting just ONE simple task done. If you are feeling tired or even a little bit burnt out let me assure you that you’re not alone! There are many marketers out there at the moment that are feeling the same way including myself!

Here’s the thing though, there are basically two ways to do business online. You can try to do everything yourself or you can outsource your activities and leverage the power of other people in your business.

If you decide to go with the second option here you will be making more money in the long term and the reason for this is simple. You are in effect limited to what you can achieve online as an individual but your ability to employ other people and the results that they can achieve for you is unlimited, and that means that the limits to which you can grow your business are unlimited.

When it comes to outsourcing your business though, a lot of people find it difficult to find the right people at the right price that you can partner with to grow your business. Again you have two choices here in that you  can go it alone and see how you get on with the freelancer sites out there or you can take the lead from someone who has outsourced most of their work and knows about the many pitfalls that are involved in this business.

If you have made the decision to outsource your business you will be aware that time is the most valuable commodity that you have online so why waste more time trying to figure out all the pitfalls of outsourcing yourself.

If you want to learn how to start delegating work to other people, free up your time, allow you to focus on more important task – such as building more websites and growing your business then this new video series on  outsourcing is going to help.

Army Of Affiliates

When you create a product online for sale you basically have two courses of action that you can follow.

You can first of all look at doing all the promotion yourself and keep all the commissions for yourself, or you could get together an army of affiliates to do the work for you.

If you want to get out of the trenches and command an army of affiliates you will make more money long term as you will have people promoting your site for you and when you leverage the power of other people like this and scale things up it can be very lucrative for you.

The trouble is all your efforts may have gone into creating your product and now you have to go and find the affiliates. The following are some tips that will help you find these people and get them promoting for you.

The first thing to do is to make sure your product is listed in a market place like Clickbank or PaydotCom where affiliates can get access to your product in order to promote it.

You will then need to make sure that you have an affiliate page where you will have affiliate tools for them to use. Affiliates are far more likely to promote our product if you give them the tools straight up in order to do so. These tools will include things like graphics where they can put their affiliate links and reviews that they can post on their blogs. You could also look at giving them keywords they can use in their articles or adwords campaigns.

If you want to gather a team of affiliates to help you with your product you will also need to go hunting for them and there are a variety of methods you can use to help you with this.

Having the right affiliates on board though can literally mean the difference between success and failure online. While they are busy selling your product you will be able to go about creating new products and can be expanding your business.

What is the Key to Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing refers to the act of sharing revenues between online merchants and webmasters. In order to earn commissions, a website owner needs to post advertisements on his website and encourage potential customers to visit the affiliate merchants site. Compensation plans are usually based on website hits, site registrations, and volume of sales. Today, most entrepreneurs prefer affiliate marketing to other forms of business venture because of the valuable benefits it brings.

Benefits of Affiliate Marketing

One of the biggest benefits in becoming an affiliate is that you will never need to worry about creating and promoting your own products or services. This means that you do not need to conduct research and determine your target audience. Affiliate marketing will require you to deal with existing products so all you have to do is to promote them. Furthermore, it will open your doors to a work-from-home venture, which is very convenient if you are tired of keeping a regular eight-hour job. As a full-fledged affiliate marketer, you can also work at your own pace and earn as much money as you want.

Succeeding in Affiliate Marketing

Although plenty of benefits are associated with affiliate marketing, you will never succeed in this business venture if you do not have the right tools to get the job done. However, most online marketers have to handle different tasks at once so they usually consider outsourcing services to accomplish their goals within their target time. Even though outsourcing services seems like a plausible solution, you have to remember that this method also takes a lot of time.

For this reason, experts consider automation as the key to earning instant commissions in no time. An automated plug-in is probably the perfect tool that affiliates could use. It helps them tap the potentials of multiple high-paying platforms with virtually no effort. So if you really want to become one of the most promising affiliate marketers of your time, you have to start looking for a tried and tested plug-in that will help you earn huge profits from any affiliate marketing program of your choice.

Understanding Affiliate Marketing and Instant Commissions

Affiliate marketing is a practice in the marketing field wherein a retailer rewards affiliates for every customer or visitor brought as a potential customer for the retailer. All efforts at gaining a potential customer is the responsibility of an affiliate so you can say that a retailer is simply paying the affiliate for the effort that he’s given into getting customers for the retailer. The issue of payment though varies depending on the affiliate marketing program in effect. Some programs pay instant commissions via your PayPal account, while others require you to wait for weekly or monthly payments.

With instant commission affiliate programs, payments alternate between the retailer and the affiliate, so you never have to wait for the ‘check in the mail’.

It may also be possible for an affiliate marketing program to involve more than just the affiliate and the retailer, with affiliate management agencies coming into play. With the use of affiliate management agencies, the retailer needs only to work with the agency and the agency will be in charge of dealing with affiliates for the retailer. An affiliate marketing agency is quite the convenience to have if you’re a retailer but you may end up earning less compared to working directly with a retailer if you are an affiliate. An example affiliate management agency is

In many ways, affiliate marketing and internet marketing tactics overlap. Affiliates are free to use whatever methods they feel will work in order to promote a retailer. A lot of the methods that affiliates end up using are used by internet marketing as well that’s why overlaps happen. If you must compare the efforts of affiliates with that of internet marketers though, you can say that the former takes on a much lower profile in promoting a certain product or service offered by a retailer.

Affiliate marketing is simple enough, so becoming an affiliate should be no trouble at all. The key is the right training, and knowing which products or services to promote in advance. Got a blog? That’s one of the ways by which you can take advantage of becoming an affiliate and start earning instant commissions.

How To INJECT More Traffic With PPC

If you’re desperate to get traffic fast and are not afraid to spend a little doing so because you know that you’ve got an excellent product that people really want, then you may want to consider PPC.

PPC stands for Pay Per Click and is exactly as it implies. You write a small text ad, choose the keywords you want your ad to be display for, and then have it displayed on the search results of sites like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Bing.

These PPC networks allow you to track your campaign performance as well so when you generate a conversion – either a sale or a sign-up you’ll know exactly how much it cost you to acquire that action.

How is that useful?… Well if you have a product selling for $100 and it cost you $50 in clicks to generate that sale, you know that for every $50 you spend, you’ll receive $100 back. Nice deal isn’t it :)

When done correctly you’ll be able to scale up your business faster, and send in more traffic from more paid sources and this is just one of many way some marketers make a living online.

If you would like to skip the pain involved with failed campaigns, Google slaps and wasted money, I have discovered a way to get thousands of visitors to your site through PPC that won’t break the bank.

This method is simple, fast and effective and you can be up and running in minutes from now. What I’ve got for you is a 14-part video series entirely on the subject which will make you more proficient in getting traffic. You can watch the first video below:
