I’ve been a full-time affiliate marketer since 2004 and affiliate marketing has changed hugely since those early days.
Things that were easy then are hard now.
Squeeze pages / Landing pages /Opt-in pages and Email lists and marketing didn’t exist.
Neither did YouTube, which only arrived in 2005, and Google didn’t own it at that time.
Facebook was still a gleam in Mark Zuckerberg’s eye.
And WordPress was still a few years away.
Amazon.com had only just launched as an online book store.
Marketing was raw and edgy and a brand new frontier.
Now I look at the sophistication of marketing tools, tactics, strategies and methodologies.
In some ways, it’s much easier …
Not The Usual 14-Day Clickfunnels Trial Period
If you don’t know what Clickfunnels is, it’s an online tool for building landing pages, sales funnels and membership sites. You can check out my review here (on another site):
Gary’s Clickfunnels Review – Does This Sales Funnel Builder Live Up To Expectation?
Clickfunnels was co-created by Russell Brunson, a name you might have come across before, back in 2014.
It has remained the premier sales funnel builder since then, though new competitors have come along and some have since disappeared.
It is a business tool and costs $97/mth for the basic plan.
So it’s not cheap, but you can get 2 months free …

It’s been a couple of months since I posted here on this blog (apart from my recent post) because I’ve been concentrating my efforts at building out my other blog, Email List Building Techniques, which focuses on…you guessed it…email marketing and list building!
Both of these are intricate ingredients in the affiliate marketing game and every truly successful marketer has their own email list.
Yes, they can be a pain to set up, which is why I avoided doing it myself for years.
Yes, they do cost money to run – you have to subscribe to an autoresponder service to be able to store your subscribers’ email addresses and to …

If you want people to sign up for your newsletter list, you have to give them a reason to — in other words, make it worth their while. When you can offer something free and valuable to your audience, it’s an automatic motivator. In fact, according to WordStream, 60 percent of subscribers will sign up because they want to receive offers or sales!
So, with that in mind, what are some examples of newsletter incentives that work? What should you offer people to entice them to subscribe to your content? Here are some ideas!
- Give Them The Chance To Know You Better
This incentive works well
Everyone needs traffic no matter what kind of business they’re running online.
Free Traffic Option #1
The starting position is free – organic traffic from the search engines. This requires some knowledge of SEO so that you can rank your site and pages on Page 1 (preferably) of Google for a number of keywords and get traffic this way.
The problem is that it takes time to master SEO, a number of the tools required are not free, Google is constantly tweaking its algorithms so if you rank well today, you may not tomorrow.
And then there are your competitors, whatever your niche, that are also trying to rank their sites and …
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve had a few emails drop into my Inbox that are promoting the Cobra Mailer bulk email system. Some of these emails have come from people I’ve come to trust so I pointed them to my review of this system (posted back in November) and suggested that they not promote it.
Whether they took that onboard, I don’t know. But if you happen to get emails pushing this system, I’d advise you to steer clear of it. Besides being extremely expensive ($1,497 plus $297 per month), it is not the all-in-one solution to email marketing that it is being advertised as and is misrepresented to potential …
This Cobra Mailer review looks at my experience with the program. Every so often, I see another pulse of emails from IM people pushing this system. To cut to the chase, steer clear of Cobra Mailer. You’ll be glad you did. It’s a Bait and Switch system designed to part you from as much of your money as possible.
You’ll find no affiliate links for this system in this post as I wouldn’t promote such a scammy product to my readers.
Ok, now let’s get into the nitty-gritty.
What Is The Cobra Mailer System?
Cobra Mailer is promoted through webinars by the developers John Shugart, Luke Sample and Stephen Renton. It’s touted …
