Commission Autopilot is A Huge Success!

Paul Ponna’s newly released Commission Autopilot software suite has blown me away.

I have long been an advocate of article marketing, but the truth is that article marketing while still an effective approach is not what it once was.

What I liked about article marketing was its dual role as a source of both traffic and backlinks. I use these for both my own affiliate marketing efforts and as a way of helping my offline clients get found online.

What Commission Autopilot does is focus on an entirely separate group of highly ranked internet sites that have existed for years but somehow stayed off the typical internet marketers radar. These are the document sites like Scribd.

I actually have had several items on Scribd for several years, but did not realize what potential the site offered until I saw the advance webinar Paul had for people on his list on New Year’s day.

Once I watched his webinar, I jumped on the product buying it for my own use, and made sure I was signed up as an affiliate to promote it. In this case, because it was too good not to share with the good people on my lists and who read my blogs.

Now I am a little disappointed, because Paul is using the traditional sales video with it’s standard sales format to promote the product now that it is available for general purchase. The webinar I watched was far more persuasive, because in it he actually showed more of the power of the software, it action vs. merely extolling it’s promise in the sales video.

The primary offer consists of two separate software products. The first makes it super easy to identify high quality articles based on any keyword you select, and allows you to attach your link to the front or back end of the article or both.

The second software element, distributes that article or articles to the top 18 document sites on the internet. Several of which are in the top ranks of all internet sites and get millions of viewers daily.

The bottom line is that these articles you post benefit from the high Google Page rank of these sites and show better than the traditional article marketing sites I have used in the past. They also pass Google Juice to my sites.

Since the articles are closely associated with the long tail keyword I initially seached with, they are highly targeted and the people who find then via Google or direct access through the site are just the people I want to see my affiliate offers or send to my blogs or other internet properties.

All of this is done in minutes once you learn the ropes. Yesterday, I create nearly a dozen projects, each of which resulted in 180 high ranking backlinks and will eventually send hundreds if not thousands of visitors to my targeted sites over time.

Paul is strongly hinting that he will be taking this site down shortly, and is scheduling training classes to help people learn how to utilize the software more effectively.

I am used to people saying things are in short supply, but in this case it may be true. I urge you to take a quick look. I bought in a flash once I saw it’s potential and think you should as well.

5 Tips for Successful Niche Blogging

To be successful with niche  blogging you’ve got to have a plan and then work that plan. As an affiliate marketer, you’ve need to systematically work toward your long term objectives.

A strong sense of focus plus the commitment to succeed as an affiliate marketer will liberate you from your regular job and set you on a course to success.  But with no one else cracking the whip over your head, you need to do it yourself.

The acronym for FOCUS, stands for: “Follow One Course Until Successful.” When you learn to focus and keep your eyes on the prize you can be very successful with affiliate marketing.

1. Choose the right WordPress theme for your niche profit blog.

Perhaps that heading should read, “Choose the correct blogging platform.” That is WordPress.

There are hundreds, no thousands of free WordPress themes you can use for your affiliate niche profit blog.  Take the time to  seek out the best affiliate marketing WordPress theme you can find.

Quality themes are optimized to boost your blog’s CTR (click-thru rate). They also will make AdSense ad code placement easy, and more effective.

2. Major in marketing

A large portion of your time should be spent in marketing your niche profit blog. At the outset, you should define your overall marketing strategy and then break it down into steps that you can perform daily.

Keep a spreadsheet where you can track all of your marketing activities. Use a blog analytics program so that you can track and measure the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns.

Never stop learning about the many ways that you can market your blog and get more exposure in the marketplace.

3. Follow a Mentor

On the face of it, affiliate marketing seems fairly simple, but there are a lot of challenges to overcome before you find success.

When you follow someone who has already ‘been there and done that’, you save time and effort by learning from the mistakes that others before you have made. You can also emulate their success and achieve your goals much more quickly than you would on your own without guidance.

4. Be willing to invest in your success

So often new affiliate marketers always look for the free option. They want free tools and free software and then they wonder why they are not as successful as they could be.

You must be willing to invest in yourself in order to achieve your goals, and you must be willing to invest in yourself if you want others to take you seriously.

Yes, the free options save you money, but investing in the best tools can give you a competitive advantage over all of those marketers who are only using the free tools.

5. Keep learning and taking action on what you learn

The Internet is full of distractions and shiny objects that lure you and distract you from your chosen path.  These can cause you to lose the focus that we mentioned earlier.

While it’s true that the internet world is constantly changing, it’s also true that the basic principles of marketing remain constant.  Resist the temptations and focus on your work.  Keep your eyes on your goals.

Being successful in an online business, just like anything else in life, is about 80% mindset and 20% implementation. If you’ve got a mindset that is focused on success, then everything else will fall into place for you.

When you are ready to get serious about affiliate marketing with a niche profit blog, you’ll want to visit, Passive Niche Profits, where you will discover many other tips and strategies like these to help you make money online.

Mass Money Makers Hits Top of Clickbank Gravity

Today Matt Bacak and Adam Sultanic announced that they had set a new record on Click Bank for Gravity.  Gravity is an often misunderstood internal indicator that I have heard explained in multiple different ways, but is essentially a measure of how many affiliates are making money with a product in the past time period. A high gravity suggests a high level of active market success.

They have done a superb job of lining up tons of top marketers and middling ones like myself to promote their launch. I, for example, got about 10 snail mail communications from them in addition to multiple online pitches.

One attractive part of the deal, is the low price just $37 (although that will rise to $47 tomorrow). Low price means a lot more people will take advantage of the offer which means more sales.

Another attractive part is that both Matt and Adam are in the trenches marketers.  They actually do this stuff themselves and do it very well. They are speaking from strength and practical knowledge. What sometimes hurts “in the know” people though is that they sometimes forget that they learned a lot of things step by step, and will on occassion assume people know stuff they don’t.

That is the strong point of the Mass Money Maker product, and surprisingly one of the points that rubbed me wrong.  They do an excellent job of explaining the basics, in detail. First in theory and then by showing a step by step process to do what they are teaching. As an experienced marketer myself, I found it frustratingly detailed.  Their first video is an hour long and didn’t teach me anything new. But if you are newer to the process, it may well give you an essential theoretical underpinning. So while I was bored, you may well have found it critical. They then follow with a two hour phase 2 video which also is largely theory. But the time it was done I was chomping at the bit to get going.

Finally, they though they got into some meat. Now again I picked up most of this already in the past from Adam via his Niche Profits Classroom program he does with Adam Short. But it does belong here and is critical element to understanding how to target keywords that you can rank for on Google. And that tidbit is well worth the price of the course by itself.

Now another thing, I didn’t like was their use of Market Samurai in their video. They have created a new software designed to perform all the tasks they describe in the program, and include it as part of the program, but as it wasn’t fully ready when they recorded the video portion they use Market Samurai as an alternative. Now I bought and use market samurai myself, and highly recommend it, I thought it would have made sense to do the videos with their software. It’s clear they had a scheduling problem and this was their solution.

While it may seem as though I am griping a bit about the product, the truth is that they have done a good job of creating a set of resources and a how to set of videos that can take a newbie to intermediate marketer through all the steps needed to become an effective affiliate marketer.  Way too many people, myself included start out wrong. Some of us are pig headed and refuse to give up and eventually learn how to do it. Most people just give up. Those who grab this course and software and pay attention to the theory that I hated, and take action following their tips will do well, very well in fact.

Now they do push their favorite hosting service and autoresponder. In my opinion, you don’t need to use their recommended services, I don’t but that said, the ones they recommend are fine. You gotta use someone. Beyond these basics that everyone needs and has to pay for, most of what they recommend are free services, and that is another strength of what they teach.

Most people looking to make money online are doing so because they currently need more money, not more ways of spending money.  The approach they teach is certainly one of the most economical approaches an their asking price for this training and software is a true bargain.

I’d appreciate it if you would use my link for Mass Money Makers

The Traffic & Income Getting Black Box


“The Traffic & Income Getting Black Box”

All hype, or true game changer? claims to offer a breakthrough new
way to generate ‘semi autopilot’ traffic and commissions,
with the launch of their new Software and accompanying

Further, they claim to offer a dead simple way for virtually
anybody to begin placing their oddly named ‘Amazing Widgets’
in hundreds of free spots around the web, as a foolproof way
to make money on autopilot once in place.

But does (AWS) live up to these claims?

The answer will definitely surprise you, with an even
bigger ‘viral shock’ awaiting as we dig deeper.

Once inside the member area, you’ll find that what AWS
offers – both in software and high quality training –
truly IS a refreshing change from all the rehashes and
copycat products, systems, and formulas we’ve been
pounded with lately…

And in fact, I’d venture to say you’ve never seen anything
like it. The owner claims that ‘widget marketing’ will
soon become a household term among Internet marketers.

And I’m on fully on board with that prediction…

Just as article marketing virtually EXPLODED in the
early 2000’s, ‘widget marketing’ is poised to replace
the old standby ‘text article’ as the ultimate high tech
traffic magnet for drawing people to your online offers.

It becomes a choice between writing and submitting an
article, or, placing a widget online within seconds.

While you don’t have to know what a ‘widget’ is in order
to succeed in a BIG way with the Amazing Widget System,
it’s basically a self contained little ‘program in a box’
that can be placed and shared on virtually any website,
blog or social page (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)…

There are widgets that display the local weather in real

There are widgets that enable you to play games directly
from within the widget.

There are widgets that play radio stations.

And then, there are widgets that are designed to do
nothing but make you money on autopilot once placed…

More specifically, AWS’s Amazing Widgets.

To the untrained eye, Amazing Widgets look like nothing
more than an attractive display ad or banner ad.

It’s what lurks beneath the surface that seemingly has
the whole web buzzing with excitement – and this was
the biggest shock of all..

An entire database powered, VIRAL rotation and tracking
system for every Amazing Widget generated…

SIDEBAR: Yes I said “every” Amazing Widget, being that
you can choose from AWS’s *1 click* Standard Widget that’s
instantly ready to start placing online with a built in
Share Tool…

Or, quickly generate your own *Custom* Amazing Widgets
ready to promote any of over 10,000 ClickBank products
using their slick web based software… Fill out one
quick form, and you have a new custom widget ready to
place online.

As I discovered in their video presentation and sales
material, by referring others to,
member-affiliates share equal traffic and commission
benefits produced by the Amazing Widgets THEIR referrals
create and place online!

So let’s say I refer ‘Joe’ to AWS, and Joe starts generating
and placing Amazing Widgets online like crazy using AWS’s free
Share Tool. My affiliate links literally rotate 50/50 within
Joe’s widgets, meaning I stand to make half the resulting
commissions on total autopilot (‘piggy back’ style as they
refer to it) doing nothing more than having referred Joe

Now, I could be a total deadbeat and still make money with
this system off the work of Joe. And what does he care?
He has the same benefit from the people he refers. But
I’d be a fool to sit back and do nothing, knowing that
the more Amazing Widgets I place online, the more my
income potential shoots up.

And what’s really slick is that referrals can come easily
through the Amazing Widgets I place (provided I choose to
promote itself within several of my
widgets).   Or, through a special external link that AWS
provides, called the ‘X-Factor’ link.

Each Amazing Widget promotes TWO products, one through
a top (image) ad, and the other through a bottom (text)
ad. So its conceivable that you could promote AWS in
every single widget you place, along with another product
of your choice.

Perhaps the best aspect of all, is the fact that this
system will probably never become saturated or outdated –
the fate of most other online traffic and money making
methods (and the precise reason why so many have failed

The simple reason for this is very simple, and that’s the
fact that Amazing Widgets can be placed on virtually any
of the billions of web pages, social pages and blogs online.
There is simply no limit to all the traffic hot spots that
you can place endless Amazing Widgets on.

Even at its basic core, the Amazing Widget System is a
system that can’t “not” work, precisely as they claim,
for the simple fact that people can’t NOT see the widgets
you place online. People WILL click on them if they are
interested in what’s being offered. And they WILL order
if they feel the product being offered will benefit them.

In this way it’s a system that is no different than
display ads in newspapers and magazines that companies
run time and time again (and have been doing so for
a hundred years) for the simple fact that they work.
People see the ads. If they like what they see, they
take action to learn more and go on to make a purchase.

It’s marketing in its purest and most effective form.

Bottom line, AWS’s traffic and income getting Software
and Blueprint is a major game changer. Not only will
lives be transformed through this opportunity…

The Internet marketing community as a whole will never
be the same again.

I’d strongly urge you to get on board and make this an
integral part of your online marketing plan immediately.
AWS’s software and system works easily in any niche, so
there’s virtually no reason this can’t work for you.

Make way for the onslaught of the ‘Widgeteers’.

This will not be available until next week on Thursday the 27th, but you can sign up to be on the early bird list.  You will then get a short training series by email that will help you better understand the huge potential this innovative product offers.   I found the short course very informative an frankly its helped spike my interest in getting this puppy as soon as it launches.

Affiliate Marketing Secrets

One of the easiest and fastest way to make money online in through affiliate marketing. This is when you send visitors to someone else’s product sales page, they make the sale and deliver the product, and you get a percentage of the sale price as you commission (usually 50% or more for digital products).

The benefits of this are

  1. You can get started almost immediately because you don’t have to create a product, write the sales page, design the website, develop marketing materials, or set up the ordering, billing & delivery system.
  2. You have almost no investment of time because you don’t have to do the customer support or deal with billing or technical issues.
  3. You have nearly zero risk because you already know the product sells. So if you send visitors you will get paid.

Looking at these benefits, it’s clear that affiliate marketing is the way to go!

The downside is…

After all your hard work of generating traffic to the sales page, you will never see any of those visitors again. Most of them will not buy on their first visit, which means you’re losing over 90% of the traffic right off the top. And of the 10% or less that do buy, the product owner will be able to sell to them again, but you will not.

What’s the solution?

Simply put, you need to capture the name and email of your visitors *before* sending them to the product sales page. This way you can follow up with them and keep sending them back to the sales page to increase your chances of making the sale. And if you’re really on top of your game, you’ll then send to a pre-sales page in between.

Here’s what these affiliate marketing strategies will do for you:

  1. You’ll be building your own list of potential customers that you can market to again and again.
  2. You’ll be pre-selling them by providing valuable information and then casually linking to the product sales page in the context of this information.

In order to set a system like this up, you will need the following affiliate marketing tools:

  1. A Video Squeeze Page (with video)
  2. One or more content-rich Pre-Selling Pages
  3. At least a 5-Part Email Followup Series

The video squeeze page is where you’ll direct your traffic instead of directly to the product sales page. It captures the name and email of your visitors and puts them into your autoresponder, which then begins sending out the 5-part email series. Then it redirects them to your pre-selling pages after they subscribe to your email series.

All of this together increases your chances of making the sale by up to 500% so it’s well worth the effort of setting it up. And once it’s set up, it runs automatically – you just keep sending visitors to the squeeze page.

If you don’t have the time or expertise to set it all up yourself, you can use something like Affiliate Silver Bullet. Services like this design the enter system (the video, the video squeeze page, the email series, the content pages, etc). The benefit is that it’s much less expensive then you could do it yourself, and it’s instantly set up. The downside is that other people will be using the same affiliate tools as you. But the internet is pretty big, so this isn’t much of a concern.

The other route you can take is to hire people on Elance to create and implement the various aspects for you. Either way, it’s an important step that you need to take if you’re going to be serious about your business.

Better Than ClickBank & PayDotCom?

If you sell digital products online you are no doubt aware of the two most popular affiliate networks, ClickBank and PayDotCom.

While these are great and I use and recommend both of them, I came across a brand new service today that really caught my attention.

It’s called PaySpree and the reason it caught my attention is that ALL its members get paid for their sales instantly by PayPal.  I like quick payments.

Even affiliates get paid for their referred sales instantly by PayPal.

I expect it to become quite a hit as the lure of ‘instant commissions’ played a big part in the massive success of products such as RapidActionProfits and the 7DollarSecrets script.

As soon as you become a member you can start promoting any product in the marketplace, and you can add your own products so affiliates can promote them for you. All commission payments are handled automatically by PaySpree. I like that too. It’s one of my minor complaints about paydotcom. There you need to manually make payments to your affiliates and on occassion, I have had to remind others to pay me.

I’ve just signed up and had a look around the site and it seems pretty simple and non cluttered, check it out at the link below and let me know what you think:

Affiliate Marketing PLR Package

I will return to my ongoing series on market research and niche marketing on Thursday, but I wanted to share a worthwhile opportunity I just grabbed for myself.

Since I am in the midst of creating an 8 module project right now, I will pass on how you can grab this cheap, rather than resell you the package now.But I expect I will be working them into a product of my own by the end of the month.

Doug Champigny has just finished uploading a new PLR bundle, and to help us start the new year he’s priced it really low for 1 day only:

This PLR bundle consists of three powerful interviews, one with Rosalind Gardner, one with Ken McArthur and one with Josh Peak.
Now you may not be familiar with these names, so let me tell you that they are each top notch affiliate marketers.

If you are doing affiliate marketing or plan on doing affiliate marketing, selling other people’s products, you will find these interviews extremely valuable.

If you have been setting goals to start the year, these interviews will give you a clear idea of where the finish line is. As any sea captain will tell you, it’s a good idea to have a clear notion of which port you are heading to, before you chart your course.These interviews will help you clarify your goals like nothing else I know of.

Now in the spirit of the new year Doug’s leaving it under ten bucks until Wednesday night, to help those who take quick action  -then it goes to $27… which would still be a good price.

So, if you want to save over $17, head over now and grab your copy.

Remember, there are 3 separate products you’re getting in one bundle,  Don’t miss out: And while just listening to them is well worth the price, you are getting more than that. You will be getting the transcripts for the calls, so you can read along. And most importantly you will be getting private label rights which means you will be able to resell these and recoup your money over
and over again.

Think of it, you will have three separate products you can offer to your growing list. Products you will be proud to share and which will be well received by your list members. In addition to selling these, you can modify the content, add to it, subtract and make it your own. You can pull sections and create articles for the article directories, or take sections and create a series of blog entries and a lot more.
This is a powerful package, that’s why I grabbed it. I highly recommend you do the same thing.

P.S. These interviews are worth more than Doug is charging just for the information they provide. Add in the ability to create 3 more products for your marketing funnel and this is a must have.
