The Online Ad Network Review and Recommendation

The Online Ad Network (TOAN) is an advertising platform owned by Brian Rooney who is also the co-founder of the the popular TrafficWave auto-responder. The Online Ad Network uses a worldwide network of websites to push the banner and text ads of its members on an unlimited basis for a relatively small monthly subscription.

As you likely know, I am a huge proponent of viral marketing and I believe banner advertising has evolved to be among the most powerful forms within this media segment. I am excited about TOAN because it allows its members to leverage banner and text advertising on an unlimited basis without the need to earn credits by reading ads.
Why Do I Recommend The Online Ad Network?

There are two core reasons I recommend TOAN and why I feel you should take action and join today for $1 for a 15 day trial. First, you get unlimited banner and text ads meaning you can add banners and text ads for an unlimited number of programs and achieve tens of thousands of monthly impressions.

Second, you receive placement in our 3×10 matrix allowing you to earn money by referring others to TOAN while benefiting from *spillover from me and my upline… so you can benefit financially even if you are not a great recruiter.

*Spillover is not guaranteed

One 24 Profits Training: Get the Most Out of Viral Marketing Part 1 of 5

Viral marketing is my preferred method of marketing my business for several reasons; it is cost effective (often free), converts with consistency, and grows exponentially over time creating amazing leverage. When done correctly viral marketing can transform your results and add income streams with relative ease.

One key to marketing virally is being respectful to your audience(s) taking care not to abuse this method by spamming or other disrespectful tactics. You want to propel your message across the Internet with the help of your readers by adding content valuable enough to inspire others to share it.

Truly effective viral marketing is leveraged by your audience and doe not depend solely on your personal efforts to spread your message. To be truly effective, viral marketing must include value and inspiration, which results in your content being freely shared in a variety of ways over a long period of time. You must engage others by providing extreme value and solving a problem or helping the reader accomplish their objectives. This will cause your marketing to grow through reviews, social media sharing, social bookmarking, backlinking and more.

Remember that Content is the Key to Successful Marketing

There are a number of reasons to include a viral element to your marketing plans, here are three of my favorite motivations.

#1. Adding Value to Your Marketing: You have read or heard me say previously that entrepreneurs are compensated based on two outcomes… the problems they solve and the value they provide. Although not exclusive to viral marketing, delivering value to your market can be done in a powerful way this method. Adding value can be done a number of ways, you can offer expert advice for free, provide a bonus on the sale of a product or service, reward those who share your content with an item of value among others.

#2. Creating Buzz for Your Business: When it comes to spreading your message creating buzz is both fun and effective as word of mouth marketing. It is our nature as people to share what we like with others and when we do this we often create ‘a buzz’ for the product or service we are sharing. No doubt you have heard the stories of small previously unknown companies which exploded there sales when Oprah Winfrey mentioned them on her show… that is a ‘mega buzz’ and it works!

Perhpas the best part of creating buzz is that it has become relatively easy using social media. The objective is to get people talking aka buzzing about you and your business in a positive way so that others are encouraged to opt-in, buy from you and carry on the conversation by sharing with others.

#3. Social Sharing: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and YouTube depend on viral sharing to grow their membership community. In fact, their entire business model depends on their members adding and sharing content using their personal profiles. The majority of social sharing sites are free to join and you can easily find others that are interested in your specific niche and subject of expertise.

As you can see, viral marketing is a powerful way for you to market free in a meaningful way while building your market preeminence and brand. To make this actionable for you, I have crafted five ‘how to’ articles to help you successfully execute on this strategy.

The following titles will give you an idea of what to expect over the next few days. (To read the complete article click on the title link above)

Top Tier Mailer by Matthew Graves a Full Review

If you have been watching the gurus lately you are already aware that Solo ADs and Targeted Viral Mailings represent two of the three top trends in effective Internet marketing today. I have used both for years and they work… here is a brand new mailer that you have to try.

My friend Matthew Graves just launched a new viral mailer which has advanced features on the market for getting you signups and sales. The site is called Top Tier Mailer and it gives you two ways to mail members without needing credits. In addition, you can transfer your credits from Matthews other sites Web Biz Insider, Top Tier Traffic, and Splash Page Surfer into the new site… use your credits were they benefit you the most. This is a huge advantage.

In addition to buying or transferring credits you can also earn credits by reading other member’s emails sent to your in-box as well as by visiting their websites. You can then use those credits to send your emails and websites out to other members. This is valuable but not unique, there are several unique features that really take Top Tier Mailer to a new level.

I also love the fact that active members are rewarded at Top Tier Mailer though the dynamic matrix structure. Members who are the most active in reading email and clicking the enclosed links earn mailing rights. There weekly ‘Leader-board’ of members who have earned the most weekly credits. At the end of each week, the most active members earn access to email members for the following week without having to use their credits. The higher you are on the Leader-board, the more members you can email… brilliant!

Maryanne Myers Advertising Sites Review

Effective Internet Marketing with Maryanne Myers Safelist Sites

I use dozens of viral ad exchanges to drive traffic to my websites and to produce sales for affiliate programs I promote; I use ad exchanges for one simple reason… they work. Advertising exchanges exist in many forms including traffic exchanges, safelist, viral mailers, text ad exchanges and a variety of variations on these scripts. I get consistent results and literally earn money every weeky by posting ads to these sites and you can too.

I was introduced to a site called Money List Mania created by Maryanne Myers on December 12, 2009 and from the moment I posted my first ad to the site I enjoyed results. I soon discovered that Ms. Myers is a true force in the ad exchange industry as owner of more than twenty sites and over time I have become a member of all of them. Her sites are very popular and deliver extreme value for the members.

If you are not using advertising exchanges you should be and if you are looking for responsive sites I recommend taking a close look at Maryanne Myers programs. The following link will take you to a list of Maryanne’s websites along with a special bonus offer I have created for additional free advertising at a couple of ad exchange sites I own.

Gary Vaynerchuk and Guy Kawasaki on Brand Engagement

I am a HUGE advocate of finding ways to leverage viral marketing and social media to extend your brand and grow your business. By definition, that which is viral is also organic, meaning you shouldn’t overthink the process of growing your brand virally.

The engine that powers your viral messages is the value you provide to those who share your message with others causing it to spread online. But you are the spark that egnites the process and for that you simply need to develop the mindset of giving to others first.

In their latest books, Gary Vaynerchuk (Thank You Economy), Guy Kawasaki (Enchantment), and Russell Simmons (Do You) among other thought leaders have stated… the companies and brands that will thrive now and into the future are those that empower people to fulfill their purpose by engaing with a company or brand. The trend is for customers and communities to engage with companies whoes brand values include putting people first and creating exceptional experiences in the delivery of their products and services.

In this short video we are treated to rare dual interview from two of the most forward thinking entrepreneurs on the scene today. Gary Vaynerchuk and Guy Kawasaki take turns highlighting the core message of their books. (Click on the title link above to read the complete article and watch the video)

Easy Traffic Video Course is BHAG Site #8

I have built a successful business by focusing on two core skill-sets… driving viral traffic and building a responsive subscriber list. Today, I have assembled a video course and series of e-courses designed to help you learn what you need to know in order to drive unstoppable traffic, build a responsive list, and become a successful marketer regardless of your niche.

The Easy Traffic Videos Course and two content rich e-courses are BHAG site #8 in my 30 sites in 30 days November Big Harry Audacious Goal (BHAG), which has been detailed in prior posts on my blog. My previous blog post reviewing my free ‘Traffic Guide for Affiliates’ represents the first of a three part project which includes a video squeeze page and report, a video course and two volume e-course, and a Wordpress blog to teach you about website traffic.

The course is presented in 12 content rich volumes that takes you from foundation to set-up and concludes with a complete traffic plan that will create unstoppable traffic to your websites and blogs. This is the type of course I would have loved to have as a new marketer and provides concepts consistent with courses I have paid hundreds of dollars to obtain. I have priced this course to make cost a non-factor for anyone serious about getting website traffic and making money online.

Here is a volume by volume overview of the Easy Traffic Videos Course:

Volume 01: Overview – Understand the complete course including a variety of free and low cost methods to get targeted website traffic.

Volume 02: Social Media Marketing – Get the most from social media leveraging Twitter to include tactics to make the most of your participation in these sites.

Volume 03: Social Media Marketing (continued) – Facebook continues to grow and define the direction of social interactions online and Linked In has become the social platform for professionals. In this volume you will learn how to use Facebook to develop your brand and propel traffic and how to make the most of Linked In.

Volume o4: Social Marketing Tools Part One – This volume will detail many of the tools that will save you time and let you in on a few hidden benefits long used by many top Internet marketers.

Volume 05: Social Marketing Tools Part Two – In conjunction with part one this volume will teach you about using Squidoo, Blogger, Google Buzz, Wordpress, Hub Pages, Blog Glue (have you ever heard of this site?) and others.

Volume 06: Social Bookmarking – Learn how to use Digg, Reddit, Technorati, You Tube and more. Understanding how to effectively use these sites will pay off big with reliable traffic.

Volume 07: Traffic Exchanges and List Building Sites – These are among the most mis-understood methods of getting website traffic. Most people use them wrong and after you finish this volume you will better understand how to make the most of exchanges and list builders.

Volume 08: The Big Kahuna! Relationship Marketing – Here we cover integration marketing, ad swaps, and networking. This volume is filled with tips and tricks to help you make the most of this resources.

Volume 10: You Cannot Avoid it! Writing Content Works! Bill Gates once famously said “content is king” and he was right. In this volume you will learn how to produce enough content to keep traffic flowing to your websites.

Volume 11: Write it and they will come! Not exactly… it is critical that you track your clicks in order to target your effort in the areas that produce the best results. If you can only watch one of these videos… don’t miss one.

Volume 12: The Traffic Plan – This is where it all comes together to create your personal traffic plan. All of the knowledge in the world is useless without putting action behind what you have learned. Here we ensure that you take immediate action.

Easy Traffic Guide for Affiates Free Report BHAG Site #7

Easy Traffic Guide for Affiliates Free Report Unlocks Affiliate Income

Have you wondeed how marketers like me and thousands of others earn real money every month selling products and services as an affiliate marketer? Before I discovered the formula I did too and I wanted to create a couple of sites and develop a video course and e-course to help you discover how to make money with affiliate marketing.

I am really excited about the next three sites I will be introducing to you here as they are a grouped in a cluster with emphasis on teaching you how to gain consistent traffic to your websites. The site set-up includes a video squeeze page leading to a quality affiliate traffic free report (and e-course), the second site is a special offer for a 12 part video traffic training course, and finally a Worldpress blog to provide ongoing tools and tips to keep you up to date.

This post will share the first of these sites with you as the Easy Traffic Videos free affiliate traffic report is BHAG site #7 in my 30 sites in 30 days November Big Harry Audacious Goal (BHAG), which has been detailed in prior posts on my blog.

Remember what you have learned from me about creating sales funnels over the past 4 years… sales funnels accomplish many objectives including list building, front end sales, and larger back-end sales. The first step in the Easy Traffic Videos project is launching the video squeeze page and free report offer, which I will detail here for you. Take notes because once you understand how to set-up a proper funnel you can create unlimited sites and cash flow.

Here are the components for phase one of the project which is the video squeeze page:

1.) Domain Name – targeted and keyword rich, especially if it is an aged domain

2.) Site Graphics – these can be custom, private label or re-sell rights

3.) Introduction Video (trailer) – outsource creation or make one free at  Flix Time

4.) High Value Product to Giveaway – Free front-end offer, this can be a PDF, Video, or audio (original, PLR, MRR are fine)

5.) Auto-Responder Sequence (pre-written) – Provide product delivery and ongoing value through your messages

6.) Back-end Product – Deliver a premium front-end free offer, over deliver content through your auto-responder, promote a high value product or service on the back-end

Visit My New Site Here: Free Affiliate Traffic Report

The number one challenge for most online marketers is traffic, which results in too few people to share your offers with and as a result too few sales and very little commission income. My front-end offer helps to solve this problem for you and online marketers in general through my back-end offer which is the ‘Easy Traffic Videos Course’ and an exclusive set of bonuses that you will read about when I review site BHAG site # 8 to follow.

Remember, the key to creating websites that work is giving your subscriber and members extreme value for free and continuing to deliver value for them for as long as they remain on your list. Over time you will develop trust and your subscribers will be open-minded when considering the products and services you share with them in the future. Be patient. a quality list of responsive subscribers is developed over time.

If this project inspires you to create a similar sales funnel with the free offer leading to a back-end sale, I would love to hear about your ideas and how I can assist you. I am here to help you succeed online by creating funnels that provide value for your list so your subscribers succeed… by doing this, your success is guaranteed.

Have a blessed day!
