Internet marketing questions

-- Contest ended --

"Suppose for a moment that you've read this post, decided to participate and besides feeling all the excitement, you got your curiosity satisfied and be in a game for a really great "$50 directly in your ClickBank affiliate account" prize... would you want to miss all that? If not, read on..."

Hi, this post is about YOU, so I decided to make it a bit more fun and exciting :-)

Before I go on with the posts on how to establish a successful business on the Internet and how to market it correctly, I'd like to ask YOU, the one that this blog is meant for, a few quick questions...

Let me explain why...

I'm in the middle of writing an astonishing ebook on how to earn money online. But I've set some really high standards for myself. I refuse to write some B.S. 35 page ebook no body's going to read just to make a few lousy bucks (even if it's a few thousand lousy bucks).

No. I want people to not just love my products, but be completely ecstatic about them and to get out of them many times more than they paid for...

So, I want to incorporate your wishes in it so that it will really help you make money online and help you develop excellent marketing for your web site.

Here are the questions:

1.) What is in your opinion the single most important thing that's keeping you from succeeding on the Internet?

2.) If you could only be revealed one single real "Holy-grail-type" secret regarding Internet marketing, what would your question be?

3.) What was the thing that got you to buy the last ebook you purchased online recently (e.g. "the buzz", "proof", "testimonials from respected people", "curiosity"...). If you never bought an ebook, you can write why you haven't bought any yet...

4.) What do you expect (and demand?) to learn from a good Internet marketing type ebook?

5.) What gets you to recommend a site to your list/readers (= to put the link on your web site or even write a short passage or an article about it)?

This is enough. Answering those quick questions is easily worth $50 and free access to the ebook when it's finished.

HOW TO WIN THE PRIZE (= $50 to your ClickBank affiliate account) -- THE RULES:

  • the contest will run from today, Oct. 3. 2006 till Tuesday, Oct. 10. 2006
  • the "cash prize" will be awarded to the one that in MY opinion wrote best answers
  • It's advisable to also leave your email or Warrior forum nick name so I'll be able to contact you if you win
  • if you don't leave any contact info, come back on Oct. 3. to check out if your post has won
  • you'll get your reward this way: 1.) I'll contact you if you win 2.) you send me your ClickBank affiliate ID 3.) I'll purchase a product through your Affiliate link so that you get awarded at least $50 commission. I purchase through the marketplace a lot and I know the affiliate payouts for each product
  • oh yeah... EVERYBODY that participates will get a free copy of the ebook when it's ready!
  • GOOD LUCK!

WHY SUCH A WAY TO PAY THE PRIZE? WHY NOT JUST PAY THROUG PAYPAL?

Two reasons:

1.) Many countries (mine included) can only use PayPal to purchase products, but not get paid. Many more can become ClickBank affiliates and get checks.

2.) For a vast majority of affiliates it's a great struggle to get that first sale and many loose their faith and strength before they can make any money. I want to give those people a boost. First, they'll see that you can actually get paid if someone buys through your link (at the beginning I remember being very sceptical about this even working right :-) ) and second, having $50 in your account can be a real motivation to get another $50 on your own and get your first $100 check. This is what can make someone devote more energy in their online business and start making serious money online.

WHAT'S CLICKBANK?

OK, ENOUGH TALK, TIME TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS...

Simply post a comment with your answers on this post. You can choose between "Blogger", "Anonymous" or "Other". Do whatever you wish, but please, please NO SPAMMING. I don't allow any links to your web sites and opportunities. The only links allowed are in the name of the contestant (= choose "Other" and type in your name and URL to your web site).

Great, now it's really the end... happy answering and hope YOU're the one to win the prize...

1.) What is in your opinion the single most important thing that's keeping you from succeeding on the Internet?

Having a consistant plan and sticking with it. Prioritizing, working efficiently, and knowing what the best use of my time is.

2.) If you could only be revealed one single real "Holy-grail-type" secret regarding Internet marketing, what would your question be?

Secrets to automating as many things as possible, and secrets to a completely repetative system that you can do over and over again and have more and more residual income.

3.) What was the thing that got you to buy the last ebook you purchased online recently (e.g. "the buzz", "proof", "testimonials from respected people", "curiosity"...). If you never bought an ebook, you can write why you haven't bought any yet...

I bought a poker coaching program along with a free ebook. It was because of his expertise and dedication. It came from someone who I had bought from before, and I could tell he put more into this program and put more hype into it than ever before. He also allowed it for free for people that deposit into one of the poker rooms (since he would be earning commission for getting us signed up). It was something that I could use over and over again and had a lot of long term value. A beleif that you will make your money back quickly and then some is very conforting as well.

4.) What do you expect (and demand?) to learn from a good Internet marketing type ebook?

A to the point guide that tells you exactly what to do, along with a follow up of successful habits and how to stay on track and orginized.

5.) What gets you to recommend a site to your list/readers (= to put the link on your web site or even write a short passage or an article about it)?

It has to be bar none the best thing I've seen in that niche. It has to be something that really gets me excited, and something that I think others will find very useful.

1.) What is in your opinion the single most important thing that's keeping you from
succeeding on the Internet?

Time. I have 2 young kids and I'm still at my full-time job for now. Finding serious
time to devote to my online business is always a challenge. Many people don't realize
that this is more than a hobby. It's a business and you need to spend time building it.

2.) If you could only be revealed one single real "Holy-grail-type" secret regarding
Internet marketing, what would your question be?

The 'secret formula' I'd like to learn is how to make a great profit and then replicate
that success automatically again and again with little effort...to be able to put it all
on autopilot so I can have time for other things.

3.) What was the thing that got you to buy the last ebook you purchased online recently
(e.g. "thebuzz", "proof", "testimonials from respectedpeople", "curiosity"...). If you
never bought an ebook, you can write why you haven't bought any yet...

The last ebook I purchased was Jeremy Palmer's "High Performance Affiliate Marketing." Two things convinced me to purchase it. 1. It came recommended by another marketer whose opinion I value highly. 2. The 'proof' he offered in the form of actual awards won by networks such as Commission Junction, including a link to the award with his name on it on CJ's site. It proved he was for real.

4.) What do you expect (and demand?) to learn from a good Internet marketing type ebook?

I expect an interesting read (not a boring and lifeless textbook) that teaches me something I didn't already know. One or two good tips can be enough to justify the price.

5.) What gets you to recommend a site to your list/readers (= to put the link on your web site or even write a short passage or an article about it)?

It has to be something that would benefit my readers and something that is relevant to my niche. If it offers good information or saves time, there's a good chance I'll recommend it. Of course, being able to earn a commission on it never hurts. :)
