Instant Profitable AdWord Campaigns In 5 Minutes?

At first, I didn’t believe it either…

But 6-year “in-the-trenches” veteran AdWords consultant, A.M. Khan, just told me about a “secret weapon” he’s been using to quietly rake in a fortune for his clients these past 2 years.

His tool, the “AdText Generator“, was able to generate as many as 8 proven and tested ads for EVERY one of your keywords in a matter of minutes.

Each ad gives you sky-high clickthrough rates right out of the gate.

While most other marketers may take weeks and even months to sharpen their top-performing ads using the very manual “test and eliminate” method, there’s no trial-and-error using this tool and zero weeks of waiting.

This is what AdText Generator is developed for—to save time. It gives you instant profitable campaigns where you NEVER have to waste another second creating a better ad again…AND it gives you better results than possible if you went at it alone.

Discover how you can tap into this tool risk-free here. You’re going to love the countless hours you save…and the bigger checks you reap.

PPC Management Services Benefits And Cautions

Every business wants more visitors and increased exposure for their website. Therefore Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising should not be overlooked because it is statistically the most effective method of advertising on the Internet.

Within 10 minutes, you can be signed up, have your budget set, state what you’d like to pay for each click and choose a few keywords. Almost instantly, your ad is ‘live’ on the search engines where potential customers can click on it and come directly to your website. Sounds pretty simple, but there is a lot of danger in jumping into PPC without being fully prepared.

There are plenty of stories available telling how new PPC users have jumped into the market and burnt through thousands of dollars in a few hours with no returns. Retaining the services of a PPC management company can guard your resources by working within an agreed budget using the staff’s skills and tools to get the results you need. Not only can it increase your website visitors and conversions, a good PPC management service can save you money while doing it.

With the global economic situation the way it is, the average CPC (cost per click) price is increasing. Actually turning a profit using PPC is getting harder for the amateur user. A professional PPC management service can develop a plan that works for you and your business, no matter what size it is.

PPC looks deceptively easy so be warned—it is in the details of your ad campaigns where the difference between success and failure is decided. It’s one thing to have more visitors because of your PPC campaign and quite another to actually convert them in buyers. An experienced PPC management company will be able to counsel you on both traffic (visitors) and conversions. Using the staff’s years of experience rather than the guesswork of an amateur (yourself!), the results will be much better.

Thus if you are not a PPC expert, you need to be very cautious. If you don’t have the confidence based on proven strategies with Internet Marketing, choosing a professional PPC management service would be a wise decision.

Probably the coolest keyword research tool I’ve ever seen.

PPC Web Spy

I just had to tell you about a brand new, free keyword research tool that Brad Callen just released.

It allows you to uncover and view the AdWords keywords of ANY AdWords advertiser! Basically, it’s a small file that gets installed into your web browser (i.e. Firefox).

When you do a Google search, the software automatically places a “view keywords” button below every single AdWords advertiser.

Click the “view keywords” button and really neat popup window appears that not only shows you the keywords that any AdWords advertiser is bidding on, but it also shows you a TON of other information, like how much they’re paying per click and so on.

It’s awesome.

Anyway, here is the link where you can download the software, and it doesn’t cost anything.

Does lack of AdWords ads indicate no market?

Here’s a little interaction I had with a subscriber:

David: “Just a quick question please. What does it mean when I punch in a niche I’m thinking of going into and there are no…”NOT ANY” AdWords on the top or down the right side?”

Nelson: “Hello David,

Hope all is well with you. There are many types of evidence to indicate market viability and AdWords ads are only one component.

However you feel about a market possibility, the absence of AdWords ads may indicate:

1) the subject matter is too exclusive…could be a sub-niche.

2) It’s a new cutting-edge area.

3) It’s just not economically viable (advertising cost high, product price cheap or priced out of reach).

Still, I have a philosophy that goes, “No market is ever too small” as long as you know there’s a rabid demand for your product/service.

Since AdWords ads are only one component, you may also take into account 2 other crucial evidence:

1) The number of Internet searches performed on the keyword per month: I remember reading somewhere a bare minimum of 100 searches per day to indicate a market. That’s 3,000 searches per month. Use the AdWords Keyword Tool to get your numbers.

2) The number of search results: minimum 30,000 according to WordTracker’s free keyword tool.

To make up for the perceived “small market size”, you have to:

1) think broader to cover a larger market base e.g.

sub-niche = making the first impression
main niche = dating

2) Consider markets of overlapping interests:

1st sub-niche = making the first impression for women
2nd sub-niche = making the first impression for men
3rd sub-niche = dating gifts, romantic gifts
4th sub-niche = cosmetics for women

Please read this post which explains the difference between market and keyword research.”

Social Networking Websites Defined

We have all heard of social networking, but does everyone know what it means? If you were asked to explain what social networking is, would you be able to give an accurate definition? Unfortunately, most individuals cannot, even though it is likely that they have join in some form of social networking, especially online.

Social networking is defined as the grouping of individuals together into specific groups, often like a small community or a neighborhood. Although social networking is possible in person, especially in schools or in the workplace, it is more popular on the Internet. This is because unlike most high schools, colleges, or workplaces, the Internet is filled with billions of people who are looking to meet other Internet users and develop friendships.

When it comes to online social networking online, websites are involved. These websites are known as social networking websites. Social networking websites are similar to an online community of Internet users. Depending on the social networking website in question, many of these online community share a common bond, whether that bond be hobbies, religion, or politics. When you are given access to the social networking website, you can start to socialize and start making friends. This socialization may include reading the profiles or profile pages of other members or even contacting them.

Social networking is often grouping specific individuals or organizations together. While there are a number of social networking websites that focus on particular interests, there are many others that are not. These websites are often referred to be traditional social networking websites. These types of websites typically have an open membership. This means that anybody can join in as member, no matter what their interest, hobbies, beliefs, or views are. However, once you get inside this online community, you can begin to create your own network of friends, thus eliminating others that do not meet your criteria.

There is much to learn about social networking and how you can use it to promote your products and services. In this modern day, even politicians use social networking in their campaigns and they have proven successful in providing information, creating relationships and winning campaigns.

Locate high-traffic websites for placement targeting.

Have you ever heard of Google Placement Targeting?

This was considered a new AdWords feature when Google first introduced it in late 2007. Click the link above and read about it.

In other words, you can be more selective about certain websites (the AdSense publishers) where you want your ads shown and place separate bids to fight for the ad positions. Without using this feature, your ads will just be shown “across the board” throughout the content network at the same bid price, regardless of the different effectiveness of each website to being traffic to you.

The challenging part is how to locate the best-performing AdSense publishers and eliminate the poorer traffic sources.

The solution is here today! Armand Morin’s Placement Locator is a slick piece of software which helps you get lots of visitors from high-traffic websites running Google AdSense for really cheap. You won’t be forced to pay more than is necessary to secure top ad positions. In fact, I let Armand reveal how he pays just 3 cents per CPM. Check this video.

Niche Discovery Tactics Gurus Don’t Teach But Use Themselves

Every Internet marketer knows the importance of discovering good and profitable niches. Many gurus have a very simplistic way of teaching about niche discovery. The sum total of some gurus’ teaching on this can be summarized as:

1. Choose a topic that you like, have experience or are interested in.

2. Take the main keyword from this topic and plug it into a keyword research tool.

3. Look at the search count. If it is about 30,000 per month, it’s a good niche. If it is below 30,000 searches, there is very little market and therefore it is not a good niche. If it is way above 30,000 searches, there is probably too much competition and therefore it is risky to enter this niche market.

That’s it. Based on those 3 steps, you are supposed to find a niche. What’s wrong with such a teaching?

Firstly, there is no research into the competition. No step is taken to discover how strong a competition you face in that niche.

Secondly, there is no research into long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords are defined as keyword phrases of at least 4 words (the more words, the better). Every marketer knows the importance of long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords can lead you to lucrative sub-niches.

Thirdly, there is no research into the tendency of the searchers to buy. It’s not only a matter of whether the searchers have money or not. Some people in a particular niche market may have money but are not intending to buy anything.

So here’s how the gurus really do their niche and keyword research:

1. Examine your own interests, abilities, knowledge, experiences. Anything from these may be a potentially good niche to market to.

2. Identify what’s hot in the market i.e. what is currently the most talked-about thing, what’s buzzing or new in town. Is this a potential niche?

3. From the above 2 steps, identify potential niches. Then run these potential niches through these ‘filters’:

a. Are people in this niche ready to buy and not merely information seekers or looking for freebies? For example, ‘how to score an ‘A’ in your SAT examination’ would probably not be a very lucrative niche because it would interest only students who may not have the money to buy anything much.

b. Is there a problem that the people in this niche cannot solve themselves? Any niche involving technical expertise would nicely fit into this criteria. For example, ‘how to solve Windows Vista registry problems’ would likely be a good niche because very few people are technologically competent enough to deal with these problems.

c. Do the people in this niche have an urgent crisis that needs to be overcome? The more urgent the better. For example, ‘how to stop your teenager’s drug habit’ is an extremely urgent crisis that begs for answers.

d. Is there an ‘evergreen’ need in this niche that is not a just a fad? ‘How to improve your golf swing’ is an evergreen need compared to ‘strategies for World of Warcraft’ (World of Warcraft is a PC game). Once the fad for World of Warcraft is over, the market in this niche disappears.

Obviously, the more ‘yes’ answers you get to the above questions the more potentially profitable a niche is.

4. Once you have identified a potentially profitable niche based on the steps above, it is time to look for some long-tail keywords. These long-tail keywords will reveal some sub-niches which you can further profit from. For example, if you type in ‘golf swing’ into Wordtracker, you would get a whole list of related searches. Look for keyword phrases with four words or more. Some of them are ‘stack and tilt golf swing’, ‘biomechanics of golf swing’, ‘what is the proper weight distribution during the golf swing’ etc.

5. To find out how much competition there is in this niche, simply type in all the keywords you have into Google’s free keyword analysis tool. This tool will give you the estimated advertiser competition (which is the same as marketer competition), average search volume for the previous month and average monthly search volume. The great thing is that this tool also gives you synonyms for the keywords which means you get more keyword suggestions. You identify keywords with as little competition but as many searches as possible.

The steps above represent a much more complete way of niche discovery. You will not only find profitable niches but also the relevant keywords that go with these niches. By doing this you make a solid start in your niche marketing.

Why Social Sites Are So Popular

Do you surf the internet on a regular basis? If you do, you should have heard of websites like MySpace, FriendFinder, Facebook, or Yahoo! 360.What do all of these websites have in similarity? They are known as social networking websites. Social networking websites, over the past few years, have rapidly increased in popularity, so much that many are wondering why.

If you have used a social networking website before, it is likely that you are already fully aware of the reason for their popularity. There is just something about these websites that draw in millions of internet users.With a huge variety of different social networking websites available, there are a wide variety of different reasons for their popularity. One those reasons being the ease of use.

Social networking websites are, for the most part, easy to use. Most sites are easy to navigate.  In fact, many require little knowledge of the internet. In addition to being easy to navigate, social networking websites also make it easier to meet new people online. There are many internet users who would love to make new friends online; however, that can sometimes be difficult do. Without social networking websites, you would have to connect with internet users, often in chat rooms, and learn about their interests before deciding if you would like to consider them your ‘buddy’. Social networking sites allow you to learn information about another internet user before ever having to make contact with them.

Another one of the many reasons why social networking sites are popular is because many are free to use. In fact, most social networking sites, such as MySpace and Yahoo! 360, are free to use. Despite being free to use, many websites require that you register with them. This registration will not only allow you to create your own profile or online web page, but it will also allow you to contact other networking members.

Although most social networking websites are free to use, there are some that are not. Classmates is one of those websites.  Many of these websites give you a free trial period or a free membership. That membership can be used to help you determine whether or not the website is worth paying for. What is nice about paid online social networking websites is that many can be considered exclusive. Since most internet users would not want to pay for something that they can get for free, most paid social networking sites are limited on the number of members they have. This may work out to your advantage because it tends to eliminate those who create fake accounts or aim to cause controversy online.

Social networking websites are also popular because they come in a wide variety of different formats.  Websites like Yahoo! 360 and MySpace focus on a wide variety of different topics. This means that just about anyone can join.  However, there are other social networking sites out there that have a particular focus. These focuses may be on a particular religion, political following, or hobby. Most specialty social networking sites restrict the individuals that can participate in their network; thus, making your experience more enjoyable.

Finally, social networking websites focus on meeting new people, especially online, but over recent months, many have started including additional features only available to their online members. Many social networking members can receive their own free web page, get free access to popular music videos, a free blog, and much more. Although social networking websites are popular enough to bring in members on their own, these additional features are, in a way, providing Internet users with an incentive to join.

Mentioned above were a few of the most popular social networks that could be found online. Those networks included MySpace, Yahoo! 360, and Classmates. If you are looking for more social networking websites, you should easily be able to find some by performing a Google search.

Howie Schwartz the peeping tom.

I first got to learn of the name “Howie Schwartz” from Dr. Mike when he came down to Singapore to run his AdSense Immersion workshop 3 years ago. Since then Howie has established himself in the public eye as the guy who dominates seasonal niche markets (like Halloween and Christmas) fast by overtaking all top 50 listings on Google.

For this reason he bestows upon himself the title of “peeping tom”, but this is a gross understatement. I rather call him Sherlock Holmes for his sleuthing skills at uncovering some of the strangest yet most profitable markets online. Just watch videos 1, 2 and 3 on how he uses Google Hot Trends, Google Insights and the AdWord Keyword Tool, eBay and Amazon to determine the viability of markets before I go any further.

Like how the videos conclude, instead of spending a 4-figure bomb to attend his ‘live’ training program, you can get—as a downloadable, take-home study course—all 12 weeks of his webinars, all of the step-by-step guides, all the resource lists, access to all the FAQ sections for a much cheaper investment, and you still get to cut in front of the line if you want to be a part of Apprentice 3 which begins in March.

Howie Schwartz is certainly a brainy guy to learn from but I suggest you quickly preview his Apprentice Voyeur package before he takes it down on the 15th!

Internet Marketing…it all boils down to math!

I saw this awesome post at the Warrior Forum about a young man who’s created a blog 3 weeks ago and it’s now making $70 PER day! He reveals exactly how he does it so please read it.

I don’t know if you are surprised that the writer would reveal ‘everything’ about his methodology, but a few years ago, it came to the apex of my mind that there are no ‘secrets’ in Internet Marketing. The simplest methodology has always been:

1. Discover what a market needs.
2. Set up shop (website) to supply for the need.
3. Get the attention of the market (traffic).
4. Provide good information and presell the product.
5. Convert the sale.

Another interesting point: I know for sure there are at least 2 ‘gurus’ who don’t make it rich because of some brilliant idea or methodology that no one knows. It’s almost like by “brute force” that they can come up with hundreds of websites that serve as cash machines pumping income to them every month. If I can recall correctly, Stephen Pierce has 600+ websites. William Crawford has 1600+ websites. One common characteristic of eBay Powersellers is not that they have a bestselling product; it’s that they have eBay stores serving a range of products counting in tens if not hundreds.

That doesn’t sound very climatic, does it? But quantity counts as much as quality when it all comes down to mathematics.

Speaking of math, here is what you can do to set in place a game plan for hitting financial targets:

a. Define what your monthly income is going to be.

b. Research the market to get a confident feel for a niche before committing it into a web business.

c. Set a financial goal for the niche website, like $300/site/month (conservative).

d. Of course you can sell many items pertaining to a niche, but let’s say you start with an e-book from ClickBank. It sells for $27 and affiliates earn 50% commission—that’s $13.50. You must sell 23 copies every month to hit the target. That’s as good as 1 e-book a day. Sometimes the math isn’t very hard. The tough part is burning these facts into the back of your mind.

And then do what the forum writer says in his post. If you know what works in your OWN methodology, you can confidently replicate what you did with another niche. Sounds like cutting-edge? Hell no, the overview sounds quite simplistic and routine, but never stupid. Again it all goes back to the 5-point fundamentals mentioned above. I hope this bit of information can get you going in 2009. You have 350 days left before Christmas and it sure comes in the blink of an eye!

I have 3 stupendous resources to help you get your work done faster. This is no joke: Get 111,107 articles for only ONE Dollar!

I think some folks are curious where I get most of my Internet Marketing resell rights products from.

I wouldn’t let the cat out of the bag but I guess since times are hard, everyone could use a break right now! Here it is.

Here’s a great video series that answers the question: “How do I get more traffic?”
