Exclusive Interview with James Pruitt!
Hey guys, I've been working on a mini project to interview some of our fellow Affilorama members who have been doing reasonably well in affiliate marketing. I am finally ready to release the first of the series after working on this on and off for the past few months.
Anyway, on this first interview I have James Pruitt on the call and the man needs no introduction on this forum. Just look to the right sidebar and you'll see what I mean. ;)
In this call, James talks about his own journey into affiliate marketing and shares many gems as to how he runs his business. Among other things, we also talk about:
- how his first affiliate site paid for his AffiloBlueprint membership
- how you can easily earn money while working on your affiliate sites
- why freelancing might not be something you want to do long term
- the importance of building up your trust factor
- why it is important to focus on only a number of sites when just starting out
- how to target your SEO efforts for maximum effect
- James' highest converting pages for his sites
- an important principle to have when doing your product reviews
- James' method of creating 'hybrid' affiliate sites
- creative ways of leveraging AffiloJetpack newsletters
- how to build a social traffic funnel to your money pages or squeeze page
- why blog posts are better for encouraging interaction with readers
- the one crucial thing people often miss when writing their articles
- two critical resources for anyone who wants to practice good SEO principles
- why you should optimize for other search engines in addition to Google
- the importance of building sites for people, not search engines
- why you should never be afraid to give out your best stuff to people
- the Authority myth
- how you could be sabotaging yourself by setting yourself up as an expert
- the proper way to utilize forums
- when is the right time to create products
As you can see, the interview is jammed PACKED with valuable information and runs for 43 minutes. I'm really excited to bring this to you and I hope you get a lot out of it. I've even gone to extra lengths to include a transcript and a supplementary work sheet as well. You can grab it here absolutely FREE (sorry I had to put it on MediaFire because it's a bit large) - http://www.mediafire.com/?gbzxb9us4ka1x4l
I'm still deciding whether to release the rest of the series as I wouldn't want to spend huge amounts of time on it for nothing. :) So let me know what you think either on my blog
- or in this thread. I would greatly appreciate that.
Have a great weekend!
