Don’t Use Alexa.com To Measure Your Success

Back when Alexa.com started, before they became a toolbar to send traffic to Amazon, I used to visit them once in a while and wonder what all the fuss was about.

They clearly state that the numbers are only an estimate based on their users with toolbar installed… meaning that the majority of your readers aren’t counted.

Now Alexa ranking are quoted like gospel.. because so many other have quoted them.

Sure, there are a lot of those toolbars, and the trends are an indicator. I use the toolbar for a quick feel of where a online marketing company is.. as they are likely visited by those with the toolbar installed… but wouldn’t plan a campaign based on it. The numbers don’t apply to non-savvy users.

Now this story shows that the numbers aren’t being updated

Our Guerrillas Beat Their Guerrillas.. “You Are Going to the Best Seller List!”

I just talked to Ben Mack about the Guerrilla Balance Sheet launch our partners are participating in this week.

We’re #1.. beating out the mega marketers and their humongous list for the top position and most sales so far.

That’s the power of partnerships.

There is still time to make sure you are in the New York Times Best Seller

This unique promotion is designed to help the little guy compete. No matter what size of mailing list you have, you can earn the right to be one of the Guerrilla Information Marketers featured in the book next January.

All you have to do is promote the Guerrilla Balance Sheet by telling your readers about the FREE VIDEO lesson from Jay Conrad Levinson.

They watch the video, get a huge discount on the report (really, new information on how to get paid for your marketing.. not $700 or $70.. just $7. The price is low to make sure that people who want it can get started… and we all can benefit from what’s in that report).

The system takes care of your readers.. marking down YOU as the person that told them about it. You get $5.04 immediately, and 50% of a commission on a later product (that could be $248 a sale extra for you with no work)

Beyond the quick cash, the best reason to do this is the exposure you’ll get. If you do anything related to self improvement, success, or small business entrepreneurs and marketing you want to be associated with the best selling authors here.

Imagine being able to point to a book that will be on the NY Times Best Seller list and say “that me right there”

If you haven’t signed up.. there is still time.. Go to http://BookLaunchProfits.com right now.

Then be sure to put your affiliate link on your own blog, in emails to your mailing list, and on the social marketing sites you visit. Let’s let the world know that Jay and the gurus are ready to tell  us how to get paid for your marketing.

Leave me a comment and tell us what you will do

How We Will Include You In This New York Times Best Seller Book

The “Guerrilla” project response is enormous.

PARTNERS are signing up.. with little more notice than a form on this link

http://BookLaunchProfits.com

But many have questions…

“Just what is this promotions about?”

“Do I really get to be in a New York Times Bestseller?”

“When and what do I have to do?”

“Is there a financial commitment?

I have the answers for you…

Granted, there weren’t a lot of details. So I got Ben Mack on the phone for a few minutes to explain. Ben is the genius behind the plan, working with Paulie Sabol, Jay Conrad Levinson and 20 of the hottest information marketers to put out a strategy that GUARANTEES there will be thousands of books ordered, commissions paid up front to affiliates, and a lot of attention and traffic for those involved.

The first product will be a $7 report (easily worth 5-10x that much). But all you do is tell people about the lead in offer.

After that, they sell the report, and some will buy a $595 product. They do the work, you get paid.

When this starts, you will see a product launch you will be proud to associated with (and likely will want to get yourself)

Here’s the quick action items (do these today)

3. Use your affiliate link when you tell your mailing list, blog readers, etc about the project. (sample emails, etc are provided when you sign up)

5. Get just one sale, and you’ll be included in the BEST SELLER book coming out in January 2009.

Don’t forget to post a comment here. Your URL will be live for other partners who want to get to know you, and will get you “link juice”.. Ask questions, suggest ideas, any relevant thing you can think to say helps us all get to know each other better.

Attract New Readers With This FREE Reader Magnet

I was just reviewing sites from partners who take a few seconds and leave a comment here.

The partners who do are the ones that “get it” and I would suggest that you connect with them to add real power to your own promotions.

  1. Find a link to their blog or community site
  2. Skim through and find what is interesting about them.
  3. Read a post, and think how you could add to the discussion
  4. Leave a thoughtful comment

This works. I’ve been connecting with more players in the past two weeks that I would have thought possible. Most read the comments you leave, and really appreciate knowing what readers think, and several new partnerships opportunities have opened up for new joint ventures, cross promotions, book deals and best seller campaigns.

Meeting Best Selling Author Seth Godin 

I’ve been following Seth Godin (author of Permission Marketing, All Marketers Are Liars, Purple Cow and many other great marketing books) for many years. I really like the concept of his Squidoo.com and suggtest that every author and entrepreneur have at least one lens (page) there

Squidoo added a new feature this week called MonkeyBrain. When I saw it, I immediatly clilcked to see what it was about.

I set up a lens in minutes, with my thoughts on the value of arguments and posted about it on my Best Seller Authors Blog. Within the first 48 hours, there were hundreds of viewers, several comments, including one from Seth himself. Then he notcied a typo on my blog post and left a acomment there… calling me a “monkey brain”

Since then, we’ve traded private emails. I have a new valuable connection and friend.

Total investment in time.. about 20 minutes.

Best of all, I have fun surfing the web, reading as much or more than I did before, while using the time to get multiple goals at the same time.. News, networking connections, relationships built and maintained and new sales to profitable clients that come looking for me.

When you read a post, profile (say on MySpace, Facebook, or LinkedIN) and see some that you know or what to know better, use this to make a brief connection.

Remember to think in terms of what is helpful to them and their projects, not a blatent promotion for yourself. The Law of Reciprocity will kick in and good will come

Read this post from my friend Azlan Hussain  for more perspective on these digital relationships

Do Best Seller Cross Promotions Work?

I was just asked to comment on a blog post

Seems some PR people object to us creating best seller books with our best seller blasts.

My guess is that they don’t want us doing something that can be done without them.

Do you like the free leads you get from cross promotions?

Have you followed up with all the new subscribers you get? (Sure, some will instantly unsubscribe and find that your offers are not for them.. but those that are following up get a target new lead.. how’s it working for you?)

Please post a comment here. Tell me what you think about cross promotions, free leads and joint ventures. As always, put in any URL to your own stuff as long as it’s not just a blatant ad.  You may also want to comment on the orignal post, and my reaction on the Best Seller Blog
