Text Ads Work

Over the years as I have been doing internet marketing, I see that most people don’t utilize all the resources out there for advertising and promoting and there is one that is so overlooked.  Text Ads are the most unused resource out there and I’m here to tell you Text Ads Work.

First of all what is a text ad – it is a form of online paid advertising that is typically just text with a link to your site and copy with a description of the promotion one is offering.
Examples at the bottom that have worked for me.

While owning a variety of sites such at traffic exchanges, mailers, paid to click and yes even text ad exchanges – I watch as members complain that this site don’t work or that site don’t work and me being the person that I am – go look in their account to see what they are doing and do you know most of the time here is what I see.  The ones that I don’t hear from are the ones that are taking advantage of all their resources.

In the TE’s most have only added one site because they were required to add a site to be able to surf – they have not added any banners, text ads, square banners – all those advertising resources just sitting there. In the mailers, PTC, and yes even the text ad exchanges I see the same thing.

Well for you that are members of Zaney Clicks know that I teach members about text ads – they are taught to watch them by a game that is played each week at Zaney.   Also, at Zaney we even have a promo each Sunday where I feature a site and the members have to go to that site and find a code in that site’s text ad to also teach them how to pay attention to text ads.

Watching the stats from the sites, I know text ads work and here is another example.  One of my active upline sent me a link saying that I know you like text ads – check this site out and let me know what you think.

Trusting my upline, I joined and I will let this banner show my results so far


They say that a picture speaks louder than words – well I guess this will tell you how much that I like the site.  AND I know the next question – yes I have been paid already and working toward the next payout as I will tell you a little secret about this site.

Everyone that loves paid to clicks – well this is extra bonus with this site – you get paid for clicking other members  ADS and get this you even get paid each time your referral logins.

Now for all of you that are trying to learn to mend the gap between you and your upline this would be a great place to start – this site makes it easy to contact your downline (referrals)  – as an upgraded member I can contact them 3 times a week – free members can once a week.  You can also tell if they are active from your commission page  – this is an awesome site for earning, promoting and great teaching tool.

What are you waiting for – here is YOUR opportunity for me to show you Text Ads work

Always be thankful – lesson to learn

Well as I was doing the email tonight for Zaney Clicks I went searching for some Thanksgiving quotes and it’s amazing how things work out and you find things that YOU need – another one of those miracles that most don’t talk about.

As most of you know and have been putting up with my pile of screw ups on the sites lately and yes there is a reason – you see I lost focus on what I should be thankful for and got wrapped up in what life was dishing out for me instead of trusting God.

Running across this poem sure put things in perspective for me and thought I would share with all of you…

thankful3Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.

It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.

So everyone no matter what life dishes out to you if you look hard enough you will find those things to be thankful for and I’m one of the lucky ones as I have many of them and they are YOU all the wonderful people that I have met since my journey online and you all don’t even realize how much you have helped me – so just wanted to write this and say THANK YOU

Bribe and Gifting

In the Affiliate Funnel webinar a couple weeks ago, Marci Jones talked about how people love bribes and well got me thinking and thought I’d write a post about what is running thru my mind.

offers2Remember when you first started and how you didn’t know where to start, how to start – well wouldn’t it have been nice if your upline had helped you out by gifting you some credits to get started.

Think about it if you have a site that is your favorite, you are getting results, you are earning mooooolah – wouldn’t it be in your interest to get your referrals doing the same thing.

Most of you that have your favorite sites have sooooooo many credits and they are just sitting there and you just keep surfing the site – why not use those credits and bribe more people to join under you – then reward them even more by gifting the more credits when they upgrade.

helping you learn and earnIsn’t that a win-win for YOU and your referral.  Most of the time you are already an upgraded member and some of you are lifetimers at some of your favorites sites.  This is great for YOU as you will earn commissions and you will more than likely get a referral that will join under you at another site also.

Oh I see those wheels spinning – do you know how happy your new referral would be if because of YOU gifting them credits got them their first referral or earned them their first money online.  I know you remember how exciting it was for you when that happened to you – come on and help make that happen for someone else.

If you don’t see that offered at your favorite site, then contact the owner as I’m sure they will help you make this happen.  Now go and make someones day.

Cooperative Marketing Group

Sometimes there comes a program that you just got to shout about and Cooperative Marketing Group is that program and I’m going to highlight some of the features that this program has.

60728294946944041_qNywDCq7_bThe Cooperative Marketing Group is more than just a traffic exchange, it’s a coop that you can get views to your sites just by showing your coop link.  You can get rewarded to promoting and earn credits so that your site gets seen.

Another benefit is that there is a free rotator that you can change out YOUR sites easily when you want to change a site, make a new page etc.  Image your site getting seen on over 146 network partners and the best part is you can see the stats on where it’s seen.

certificate2Talking about getting rewarded there is also Top Award Points Exchange and that is what you get when you surf other exchanges and collect the certificates found in the list of other sites listed on the site.

There are sooooooooo many benefits at Cooperative Marketing Group to list here but I do have one more to mention as I get asked where can I make my own splash pages and do I have a program that I recommend – well now I do – Cooperative Marketing Group.

Well I finally got a chance to test it out and thought I’d share some of the highlights with this splash maker and here is your chance to get creative.  Right now there is 35 easy to fill in templates, you can upload your own images to use, add your social media for others to connect with you AND then just fill in your info and save

So click the banners and join the reap the benefits of Cooperative Marketing Group.

Affiliate Marketers – this works for me

004I054YQm2Well this is a post that I have been meaning to write for long time and all that know me  know that sometimes you just got to do it NOW.  So many times I’m asked what do you do online, what is working for you, how are you earning money etc. – so thought I’d let the cat out of the bag here so Affiliate Marketers – this works for me.

Over and over again you have been told that you need to find ONE product, ONE site and stay focused on that ONE and promote, promote, promote.  So many have come to me asking how do you know what that ONE site is.

Well if I was to be starting out right now the ONE site for me would be Affiliate Funnel and I will tell you why.  This program gives you the tools that you need to get started and I would like to focus on some of those tools.

When you first start it can be overwhelming and in Affiliate Funnel did you realize there are lessons for the newbie or even the seasoned affiliate that is feeling they are spinning their wheels and just don’t fully understand things.  You will see topics like

Building Your Business
Traffic Exchange Basics
Traffic Exchange Advanced Techniques
Safelist Basics
Email Series for your use

The other benefit is……… a PDF that you can use, download and use to help
build YOUR list – here is a look at the Table of Contents – so loaded with info
Info that has been tried and tested by some of the leading marketers

Oh, I’m not done yet – there is more – IF you are on a limited budget and you don’t know what you should upgrade in or where you should spend your money – let me tell you I’m in 100’s of sites and this would be my first choice to upgrade in and here is why – sure wish someone had told me that years ago.

To me this ONE benefit is worth the upgrade and I really don’t see many people using it or at least like they should.  This is so worth the upgrade as it not only lets you promote Affiliate Funnel so that you can earn commission but you also get to taylor the programs in this money page for just YOU.  How cool is that – here is my link to the page that I’m talking about.
http://www.affiliatefunnel.com/ymp/wisgrandma

So everytime that someone ask me what do you do, what is working for you, what sites do you promote, where do you earn money at – you can give them this ONE link and this helps open up the lines of communication for them to ask you questions.

Now here is another GREAT benefit for this page – you are on a limited budget and dont’ have the time to buy credits all over, you don’t have the time to surf 4 – 6 hours a day, you don’t have the hours that it takes to send out to all the mailers that you are a member of – this is one of my secrets.

Remember how you were taught to work smarter and not harder – this is one of those ways.  You can assign your 1000 credits to ONE url, can copy and paste an email to send out to mailers and don’t have to pick which ones – YOU have the chance to promote 9 sites with ONE url – seeing the bigger picture here?

Instead of dividing your 1000 credits between sites – why not  try this instead.  Oh I know most of you are saying but then you don’t have a banner to add – hmmmmmm well here is another secret that I do – make up generic banners like this and use them as they stand out from all the affiliate banners out there – here are some examples

IDcat

IDhound

Now one more thing as I see that I’m getting long -winded here but being a site owner I see so many that don’t use all the resources and yes I’m talking about ALL even the text ads and here is one more little secret – when you get all those emails – pay attention to the headlines that caught your eye, make a notepad file of them call Swap Files.

Then use them for your text ads as most TE’s will give you 10 – 50 per credit – now think about that – oh know what you are thinking people don’t look at them well that is BS as if you will track your URL’s you will see that they do click.

Ok you twisted my arm, one more gold nugget here – write a one or two sentence about the your money page and then send them out in the mailers.  You DO NOT need a long body email as most are not going to read all that – they want to get to your link to earn that credit for clicking.

Yeaaaaaaa I can read your mind – you don’t think this works because so many sites are on the page – but you know the more mailers that you have this in and the more that a person sees YOUR MONEY PAGE – it may take dozen times, two dozen times – but if you keep it in their face – they are going to think this person is serious about this page as I see it all over – I really should pay more attention to it.

One last thing before I close on the benefits of belonging to Affiliate Funnel, you also can get additional training every Saturday at Noon EST where Marci Jones will share so many more gold nuggets, more ways to learn on line and why would you want to go and listen to her – she practices what she teaches and I know for a fact that it works – I’m one of them.  Want to hear one of her webinars – you can go here and listen as they are recorded in case you missed them http://www.affiliatefunnel.com/webinar.html?referer=wisgrandma

If anyone would like to talk to me further or have more questions you can Skype me @ nancyradlinger.  My Skype does get busy but I do answer all my messages so if I don’t answer right away just give me time as I will.

Fill Your Downline Builder Easy and Quick

coolcat2Well sometimes a program comes along and you think to your self as you read the info about it and you go yea right – fill your downlines easy and quick.  This is everyones dream – as when you join a site – each has a downline builder.

Sometimes, you look at all the blanks and go wowwwwww this is going to take me forever to get all my referrals ids in here.  Guess what, Marty Petrizza (one cool cat) has come out with an easy and quick solution for you.

Thinking in my head……….. Well Show Me……….. so I joined and I am just blown away at what I saw and how fast I have filled in downline builders at over 30 sites by just clicking a button that says update ID’s.  Now hold on, it can be that easy after you fill in your id at this site and then you click a button to a site that you want to fill in your downline builder – click check downline builder and it will ask you for the site login info and then it pulls in that site’s downline builder and compare it to what you have on this new site.

This site is called Downline Builder Elite and while doing mine I found some real eye openers and this program sure made me a believer.  One thing I would found out was that I always thought I was good about filling in downline builders to different sites as I try and do them right away.

cat11Well the shock for me is the ones that I thought were done were NOT done and all this time I have been missing out.  Because I track, I know how important downline builders are and the amount of referrals that you can get from them.  So shame on me for thinking I had done them all – I had NOT

The other shocker for me was the amount of errors that I had and this was another shame on me.  You see I know when you are filling out these a person can make mistakes or transpose numbers.  I even found one account that I had been deleted from for lack of activity and gave the site one more try – well there was my old ID in there did me absolutely NO GOOD at all.

Now I took the long way around in filling this out at Downline Builder Elite and it did initially take me awhile as when I was missing a site that I knew I was a member of – I also visited that site and depending on if it was a TE or a mailer – well I checked to see if I needed to assign credits etc while I was there or I sent out my mails while I was there.

161777811584436570_IxPBd3u7_bBut you know what the best part was when I did find a site that I had missed – with the click of a button the downline builder on that site was filled in automatically and that was just soooooooooo cool. So be ONE smart Cat today and click the banner below.

Now if you love downline builders like I do and you feel you might have missed filling in some like I did AND you might have composed some letters or numbers like I did THEN click this link now and take the time to fill in this downline builder – you will not regret it.

Now get over there and get your downline builder filled in and stop losing referrals and commissions – you know you have been.  Oh I almost forgot there is over 536 sites and more are being added – so I bet all your favorites ones are there – click the banner and go look.

 

But I can’t………………

Well today I thought I would finally break down and write this blog post as you would not believe how many times I hear people say but I can’t……….  Many of you know me as a quote junky and this one comes to mine

cantorcan

 

 

 

 

So with that in mind, lets touch on a few basics here that I will think help you especially if you don’t have a particular program to promote but you are still looking for some way to earn commissions until you can have the time to test what is working for you.

Well one of the resources that I use and just love as it makes my life so much easier and almost as handy as any rotators is this affiliate downline builder page.  So you are new to TEland, mailers, limited budge, the marketing world and so many are telling you this and telling you that – back up and think about this for a minute.

17944098484828895_plIaqANF_bActually, I wish years ago when I started someone would have made this suggestion for me as it would have made my life so much easier.  How about if I could show you an easy way to promote 9 different programs all at the same time with the ONE url.

The reason that I bring up the ONE url – if you have been following my blog post you would remember that I suggest that you find ONE program and stay focused on that ONE program till you have a good downline and earning money.  If you missed that blog post you can read it here One is a Lonely Number

Well if you have joined some sites and really can’t make a decision yet about what is working for you and you still want to focus on that ONE url which will save you time in the long run – here is your answer.

As an upgraded member of Affiliate Funnel, I have the choice of this awesome splash page – ONE url and the programs that I am promoting or recommending.  Now remember when I said this is as good as a rotator – well it is as if you find that one program in your list here is not performing for you like it should you can come to the Affiliate Funnel site and edit this page.

Nancy Radlinger recommends………

Seriously now – look at this page closely – this is one of the best branding pages out there if you ask me – it has my name, my picture and even says I recommend – what more could you ask for when someone ask you what you do online and what programs are working for you or that you recommend – You can give them this ONE url, ONE page to look at as you go thru each program and tell them the reasons why – don’t that sound like it could make your life easier.

Think about how much time this will save you  – you can put in ONE url and assign your credits – you can write ONE email to add to mailers with what you recommend – short and sweet huh?  So the next time that you say to yourself but I can’t – change that to I can and I will.

Don’t know if you noticed that the bonus on this page is that you can show people this page and if they want a page like this – they can click on this page and join Affiliate Funnel – believe me this works as I get referrals from this page all the time.  AND if you remember at the beginning, I has said I was an upgraded member – well this page helps me earn monthly from this site – it can you too – click now and make your life easier for yourself.

Points For You To Ponder

Well most of you know well enough by now that I listen and read what others have to say and then I have to share my two cents so I have some points for you to ponder.

Judging others

judgingcat3Way too often I see or hear about other site owners judging others for something they might be trying especially if it’s out of the norm.  And here lately, it’s because this one might be opening too many sites or another might be asking people to pay them directly to their Paypal account to keep from paying commissions and the list goes on and on.

Well I am still old fashioned enough that I still believe in ye without sin cast the first stone – and I just don’t understand how some can put themselves up on this high pedestal – don’t know about you but my mom always told me that being on that pedestal – there is always someone that wants to knock you off.

Just because you have been around the TE World for awhile, or might have more experience programming your own site, or think that you have learned it all – it still does not give you the right to judge others – period.  In my opinion, you should be focusing that time in figuring out how you can make me happy and get the results that I’m looking for.

Set of Rules to Abide By

peteThis one really gets me as I listen to this “set of rules” that some have come up with and that should be followed when running your own site or in your promoting another site.  Last I heard, we are still in a country where I still have the freedom to run my site the way I see so it will benefit my site and the members. Also, I can promote what program I want – or did we lose our freedom?

Now before you go thinking we are protecting others from being screwed over – and again who made you judge and jury?  Grant you there are some programs out there that are questionable but I don’t feel I’m qualified to decide which they are – just my opinion is I should be focused on my site and know in my heart what I am doing is legal and morally right period.

Stop straddling the fence. Again it’s these same people that talk about others yet do the same behind the scenes and I see that all the time.  How can a person preach one thing and then do the same thing they are saying others should not be doing.  How can a person put down another person for trying it their way and then publically be put down them for it BUT yet keep taking that persons money for an upgrade at their site?

Cheaters?

Who wrote the cheaters handbook?  What or who is a cheater?  When should a person be suspended?  AND if you suspend the cheaters, do they still count the that total member total that you brag about? What happened to being innocent until proven guilty?  Did that go by the wayside also?

judgingcatGrant you there are many cheaters out there and yes they should be stopped but the ones that point fingers really should look at the 3 pointing back at them.  Do you really do everything by the book?  Do you not find shortcuts that shouldn’t be used?  Do you not make deals with others behind the scene?  So who is cheating really?  Think about that the next time you make a deal with someone – who are you cheating out of their commissions?

Lifetime Upgrades

Well this one could be a post in itself as I have really caught hell (excuse my English) that I didn’t put out one of those cheap lifetimes on the mailer that I just launched.  Well Just my opinion, lifetimes are just fast money for an owner.  If the owner was serious about their sites, plan on being around for the long haul then there are expenses that go with it.

Lot of owners get in trouble offering these cheap lifetimes and then wonder why they can’t pay the commissions.  When a lifetime is offered and a person is getting 50 % commissions – you just took in 1/2 the money your should and you cut that recurring income out by offering that lifetime.

AND don’t go and make some low upgrade that is just a few credits above what free members get and put the word lifetime on it.  Come on we are not that stupid that we are going to buy that crap – just so we can say we have a lifetime at your site.  AND yes that does happen – people have been brain washed with that word lifetime.  It’s a trigger word just like free, discount, sale, etc.  Make sure that you read the fine print before you buy and that site owner laughs all the way to the bank.

60728294946944041_qNywDCq7_bWell I see that I got long winded again but feel better that got some things off my chest.  If you are looking for an honest, hard working owner, they are out there.  Don’t get caught up in the crap you read or hear about others.  The bottom line is TRACK YOUR RESULTS – this will show you the true facts about sites and where you should be with your advertising.  What works for someone else not always works for you – you have to take the time and find out what works for YOU.

Viral Commissions

364806082Well, I am a member of many, many (sometimes too many) sites and I have to say I have never seen a site like this before and am sure you have not either unless you are already a member – it’s call Viral Commissions.

Viral Commissions is a viral system delivering free banner ads and text ads and paying out instant commissions – yea I said instant – crazy huh?  When you sign up there are multiple offers that a person can choose from.  Depending on those offers will determine how much you get your instant payments.

Once inside, you fill out your profile including your Paypal addy and then promote, promote, promote and watch your instant payments start coming in.  I wound up taking money that I earned from another site I’m in and took the chance and went for the founding member right away.

Well are you setting down, I made that back in instant payments within ONE day – yea you heard me right ONE day.  All I did was send out a few emails to my list and $11, $27 and even one $97 started coming in – I’m telling you I have never seen a program work like this and so fast.

60728294946944041_qNywDCq7_bWe all know the name of the game is getting your ads out in rotation in as many places as possible.   So how do you do that without breaking your budget or slaving for hours clicking for credits?

Just add a little bit of VIRAL advertising to the mix and watch your hit counter soar! But that’s not the only thing that’s got me excited about Viral Commissions…   I earn INSTANT commissions directly to my Paypal every time one of my new  referrals upgrades!  How’s that for a quick fix to your cash flow problems?

Don’t moan about not having enough traffic or commissions! Join me over at Viral Commissions now and put the power of viral to work for YOU!
