I've been talking to Marc Lindsay of PLRPro.com, he's flying in to meet me and help me record a video tutorial of how to make the most of PLR articles.
This will be available to members of affilorama shortly. Just another announcement, I'm off to LA, Vegas (World Internet Summit), Austin and New York in September.
If any of you are nearby and would like to meet me for a coffee or anything, let me know and I'll do my best to squeeze you in.
I'll be working very hard on affilorama while I am away, part of what I am doing is filming more interviews with affiliate gurus for the members area of the affilorama website.
I just recently filmed an amazing video interview with Michel and Sylvie fortin from theCopyDoctor.com and workaholics4hire.com. Also another great interview with Alan Forest Smith from OrangeBeetle.com. They will be online within the next week in the members area.
One great tip that Michel and Sylvie shares is with regard to email marketing. How often do you read a full long email, as opposed to a short quick one? Personally I often save the long ones for later and often don't even get around to reading them (being so busy as I am!). Michel has tested this and has found that when sending out emails, if you write short emails (say a few lines), and then finish with a dot-dot-dot and then a link saying 'Read On' that links to the rest of your article on a webpage on your website; that produces a higher readership rate. It also means that you can track how many people are reading your email by tracking the number of visitors to your webpage, AND allows you to make more money by having adsense ads on your webpage. Cool huh?
For those of you who don't have a newsletter, don't worry, I show you step-by-step using video lessons how to do this in the affilorama members area (and a lot lot more step by step video lessons on everything to do with affiliate marketing). Another tip to increase readership of your newsletters, is to add a '-' to either side of your name, and/or subject line.
Imagine receiving emails from the following people:
- George Peterson -
Notice how George Peterson's name stands out there? Yet it doesn't look over hyped, or anything.
I hope you liked those quick email tips, my interview with Michel and Sylvie went for about 50 mins so there was a lot of great advice in there. They are doing very well not just from copywriting (which is what Michel is known for), but from Affiliate marketing as well.
Sylvie likes to set up PLR sites. What she does in brief is use PLR articles as 'research'. Her staff rewords the articles so that they are unique content, yet it doesn't take anywhere near as much time as writing the articles from scratch.
I'll be talking more about that and how people make money from Private Label Rights articles with Marc Lindsay on Saturday when I do a video interview with him.
Hope you all enjoyed this post, please comment, I welcome all messages!
