UPDATE: Subscriber’s Magnet Is No Longer Available

If you want to add professional quality popup optin-forms to your sites, then I recommend Popup Domination, ClickFunnels or Ninja Popups.

It’s been a while since I updated this blog with my progress in Alex Jeffreys marketing course. It’s a rainy Saturday afternoon and I have a bit of time to spare, so here’s what I’ve been up to during the course…

The core of Alex’s course is to build a list. I’m involved in a few online enterprises (writing software, building and maintaining websites, testing the waters with autoblogs, looking after customers, etc.), so I’ve had less time than I’d …

I was about to head over to the WarriorForum to check out the new posts when an email dropped into my inbox from EzineArticles about an article I’d submitted to them a few days back. So I opened the email, assuming it would contain an acceptance notice. It didn’t. Hmmm…

The article I had submitted was about the problems I’ve been having with the WordPress “Missed Schedule” posts on some furture-dated blogs and directing people where to find solutions (they’re listed on this blog). So it came as something of a surprise to see this the content of their email:

This is the article marketing strategy I use for promoting something, whether that’s a specific page on a website, the website’s home page or some offer I might be promoting.

Write An Article

I write articles with a view to spinning them. Not in the sense that some thesaurus just replaces keywords it identifies in the text with various synonyms, making for semi-readable articles, but in terms of me doing the spinning. So first, I write an article. Pretty simple. Then I take that article and rewrite each sentence in it two more times. It’s important to note …

If you’ve read my previous post, you’ll know that I’m now one of Alex Jeffreys’ students. As part of the practical work he’s set in his coaching program, he’s set a competition for his students: whoever gets the most traffic to their blog by early next month will get as a prize, a complete professional blog created fro them (including content, plugins, graphics, etc. and the blog will be the front end to a whole marketing business. Quite a prize and one worth fighting for!

One of the terms of competing is for students to document how they are driving traffic to their blogs. So that’s what this progress report will be …

One of Alex Jeffreys challenges to his new students is to document how we drive traffic to our new blogs. I had intended doing just that in a post on this blog, but the post was getting longer and longer as I listed the various methods I use. So I decided to turn it into a report instead.

In all, the report ended up being 14 pages long, so it would have made for a huge and unwieldy post. The Blog Linking Tactics Report, as I’ve called it, lists 27 solid, proven techniques for driving traffic to your blog. If you’re …

While I already have an online business building websites, doing affiliate marketing and selling my own products, I wanted to move my online business to the next level [my backstory is on my About page]. Now I’m a pretty disorganized individual. When I was growing up, my mom was forever telling me to clean up my room. I did when she told me but without her impetus, the room descended into a disheveled heap again.

That’s kind of how my business became; bits here, bits there; couldn’t lay my hands on something when I needed it; stuff shoved all over the place with the intention of going back to it to give …

I’m always looking for new ways to make money online and new ways to get traffic to my sites. After all, internet marketing is an ever-changing business where you can’t afford to stand still for too long.

The other day, in amongst the 100 or so emails I get a day was an invitation from my old astronomy buddy, Todd Gross, to join a marketing course run by someone called Alex Jeffreys.
