Google Assassin Review

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Google Assassin, the sequel to Day Job Killer is developed by Chris. Since Chris's foucs is centered around Clickbank, his tools are mainly used to get that extra edge in the Clickbank marketplace. For me, since i'm mainly old school, i don't use these new tools…it takes time to learn them, besides I have my own techniques. Anyhow, I did find the Clickbank Alert somewhat interesting…Here's a screen shot of what it looks like…the Chris coined it, Google Assassin – Affiliate's Den.

This tool tells you what is up and coming in the Clickbank marketplace. Products that sell well are naturally products that are converting well with few affiliate competition. When new products are introduced to the marketplace, people don't know about them and this tool alerts you to possible gold mines. I would however recommend not to rely solely on this but do one's own homework. You will know a page converts only by doing your own testing.

 There are some interesting Google Assassin tools that help you do this such as:

  •  "The Daddy" Keyword Extractor Tool –  Used to search keywords for your PPC campaign
  • Adwords Micro-Nicher Tool – Interesting application to help you find niches that you can target with low  keyword competition. By the way, just so you know, I actually do these without the help of tools. Tools are just there to help you do it faster then me…

Can You Really Make Money With ClickBank?

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

$200/mth is possible with Clickbank if you're an affiliate marketer for these information products. Here are some important do's and don'ts.

Don'ts

  • Never send traffic direct to the merchant's site. I only use free methods to send traffic to a merchant in order to test their sales copy. Only when it converts do I contemplate driving up promotions with paid advertising
  • Do not promote a merchant that has more then 1 payment option on their site. This will cause you to lose your commission dollars

Do's

  • Create a landing page.
  • Create follow up messages sharing tips about the industry that only you know. If you want your people to respect your recommendations, you need to share something others don't know.
  • Send PPC traffic to your landing page and insert Google Analytics Code to your thank you page.
  • Learn how to use iframes and unblockable javascript popups to remind your subscriber the benefits you can provide them for opting in.

Thursday, November 15th, 2007

There are huge promotions for Brad Callen's Affiliate Elite going on right now. Sometimes, it puzzles me why every one jumps on the next big tool that's going to make them rich. At the end of the day, the things that matters are the following.

  • Traffic
  • Conversion
  • Building a list of people who look to keep in touch with you

I'm not proposing anyone buy it, since I've not tried it myself. But if you have tried and tested it, and it makes you $1000 a month. Let me know…
