When stupid copy calls

No StupidOne of the neat things about affiliate marketing is that quite often, product developers will offer their affiliates suggestions for email campaigns, forum postings and the like.

"OMIGOSH, let me buy!" ain’t the first thing that comes to mind, let me tell you!

Clickbank Revenge (and quite the affiliate marketing savings too!)

Affiliates UnderCoverMorning all,

I just across this nifty product that’s been marked down considerably!  It has a fascinating story behind it as well - to wit:

You see, I was going to do a full scale clickbank launch with this ebook, having JV’s promoting it to the masses, but like I said earlier clickbank decided they didn’t agree with some of the "controversial" material within this guide…

I was going to charge $67 for the first few days and then raise it to $97 and once customers caught wind of some of these deadly tactics it would have gone viral for sure, still selling thousands of copies…

But since clickbank decided not to allow me to sell it as-is through their affiliate marketplace, I now have a personal vendettaAnd I want some REVENGE!…

I will admit, it’s compelling copy indeed!  Some of the points revealed include:

  • The Pinnacle 5 Secrets to Zooming to the Top 100 List at Squidoo so that Google Spiders Rank Your Lens at the Peak of the SERPs!…page 18
  • How to Infitrate the Super-Competitive Territory of YouTube Using a Simple System and a 2 Minute Video Clip to Pounce Into the 3 Billion Video Views Each Month…page 19
  • The Supreme BEST Way to Double or Even Triple Your Affiliate Earnings Via a Special Hidden Technique Before Funneling Traffic on to the Main Sales Page…page 24

And that’s just the beginning.  I’ll admit, it sounds mighty enticing to  me!  Why not check it out yourself and see what you think?

BAM is the sound of your affiliate commissons scurrying away

Virtual CoachMorning!

So!  Now.  

Tell me about your affiliate marketing experiences.

Perhaps you have a niche blog or resource site…maybe you specialize in forum participation and weave in your affiliate links, it could be you offer free or paid eclasses….in any event, people visit your site and can enjoy what you have so lovingly and with great effort created for them.

And then, alas, they LEAVE your site.  WITHOUT clicking on your links. 

WITHOUT signing up for your newsletter.    Another opportunity….lying in the dust, choking out its last gasp, weakly shriveling up and dying an agonizing, soul-searing death.

Depressing, that’s what that is!

But wait!  If you had compelled your visitor to:

  • Sign up for your autoresponder
  • Download your free ebook
  • Optin for your newsletter
  • ….

In short, given you his or her email address, you’d have another chance at marketing to them in the FUTURE.

And I found and bought just the tool that helps that admirably!

Quick!  Visit Virtual Coach and look towards the footer.

Nice, eh? 

This extremely reasonably priced tool was beyond easy to install and configure…and it makes it really easy to gently nudge the reader that Hey!  There’s an Offer here I really should check out!

I’m very pleased with it…and can highly recommend it! 

Are YOU tired like me of leaving money on the table? 

If so,

Click HERE to learn more about that nifty tool!

You’ll be ‘way happy you did…and your bank account will thank you at a later date as well.  Remember, the first visit to your site doesn’t have to be the last!  Give yourself all the edges you can.
