In spite of computer glitches with Go-to-Webinar, Dean Holland covered a world of information in week 2 of the Quick Start Challenge.
Some of the key points discussed were as follows…
The success metric is the key to making money online. So what is the success metric?
TRAFFIC + CONVERSIONS = $ALES
There are two types of traffic…free or paid. Actually, free may not cost money but it does take time…and time is money! We will track our traffic with Google Analytics. (Action item: Add the Google Analytics plugin to my blog!)
We are going to focus on two free traffic methods by swiping visitors from existing traffic sources… Forums and Blogs. We will comment with our blog in the signature line. The comment must provide value! First impressions DO count! If there are no comments people might feel it’s not worth reading your blog. On the other hand, if there are comments, visitors will want to see what all the “buzz” is about! We want people to become loyal customers with KLT…they know, like and trust us!
There are thousands of forums out there…but why not start with the Warrior Forum, designed with online marketers in mind.
As far as blogs are concerned…we have a gold mind…the Quick Start Challenge Blog Roll! Make a post on everyone’s blog and as you post on their blog, they will return the favor and post on your blog!
Now I also learned something from our Quick Start Challenge facebook group…install the plugin CommentLuv. This will reward you if you decide to add a comment to my post by placing a link after you comment with a link to your last blog post with the statement: Your Name wants you to read www.your blog! How cool is that?!
Ok…now here’s the Week 2 Challenge… Create a video (at least 30 seconds, preferably with your smiling face), upload it to facebook and post it on your website! Oh my gosh, did Dean actually say make a video? This is going to be a MAJOR challenge for me! Be on the lookout, because I will meet the challenge!
Did I mention, Dean Holland, Craig Crawford and Robert Phillips of The Quick Start Challenge are giving away prizes as an incentive for us to get the job done!
