Shocked With Last Night's Webinar
Hello AR members,
Well I will probably get flamed for this, but I feel the need to vent a little bit.
Firstly, I must say that these webinars are great and most of the time anyone can bring something back home to apply in their business. I also must add that I really enjoy Mark's way of teaching, similarly I enjoy Daniel's AMA. With that being said, I don't think that last night's webinar was up to the usual high quality standards. Sure there where some tidbits of information that a newbie would have enjoyed about keyword research and competition analysis. The piece about Google Analytics was really valuable. But all in all I thought that the webinar was supposed to be about back linking?
Maybe I was over thinking it but I was really pumped up before the webinar. As I thought I was going to hear some expert advice about specific linking strategies and how fast we should be building links to our site, etc. There are many theories on proper back linking and I thought that was going to be the discussion. Honestly, I felt like Mark's webinar for his bootcamp was of higher quality. The webinar is the one where Mark "shows" you how to find niche related blogs and forum, and as well he shows you good practices for each type of backlink (flight simulator niche). This fantastic webinar only cost $1 as it is what I got for trying out Affilorama premium for 7 days.
I will say that most of the webinar last night had nothing to do with back linking strategies and was more or less about spying on competition and the promotion of his product. While spying on competition is important, I think the title of the webinar was misleading. There was maybe 10 minutes of actual talk of back linking strategies and it wasn't even until Mark said something towards the end of the webinar.
All in all I was left with the feeling that if I didn't have x product (which I already have AMA) then I couldn't do well within the SERPs. I do agree that blog networks are a great part of a linking strategy but I don't believe for a second that it is the only part.
Did I learn something last night? Sure did... but it wasn't about back linking :*(
