Keyword Elite 2.0 Released

Brad Callen released his much anticipated Keyword Elite 2.0 tool and I was lucky enough to get an early copy to review.

The first thing that I noticed was the considerable improvement in finding and displaying keyword results.  The results are also much more accurate than the results that were generated with Keyword Elite 1.0.

In fact, I have yet to see a keyword research tool that can deliver keyword results as fast a Keyword Elite 2.0.

I am actually pretty excited to start using all the features.

But Keyword Elite 2.0 is much more than just a keyword research tool with seven (7) additional modules that allow you to do things such as spy on competitors or look for good sites to target using Google Adword’s placement targeting feature.

I think that is someone took the time to fully understand how to use this great piece of software, they could literally build a six figure income in just months.

The problem is that most people just by software because of the hype and then it ends up sitting on their computer.

But Keyword Elite 2.0 doesn’t need any hype.  It is the real deal and I am actually using in regularly thee days.

I have put together a bonus package for anyone who is interested in Keyword Elite 2.0 and purchases through my affiliate link.


Starting My Twitter Journey

About six months ago I thought Twitter was stupid.  I have changed my mind although I think it is still over-rated.

I have started experimenting with my own Twitter account at:

I barely tweet, but noticed that if I do place a URL about something, my followers do actually click.

This got me thinking about Twitter as an effective communication tool (if not abused).

I spent some time trying to find out marketers who know Twitter really well.  I found a lot of marketers with tens of thousands of followers, but something did not make sense.

I see numbers like this:

23,543 Followers and 21,435 Following

Having over 20,000 followers is impressive, but how the heck do they follow over 20,000+ other people.
Everytime they hit refresh, they must end up with a new page of tweets.

Then the BS detector went off.  Ding. Ding. Ding.

Upon further investigation, I didn’t realize that their are tools out there that allow users to auto-follow other users when a user signs up to follow their tweets.

Great way to inflate your follower numbers.  But the problem is that these are not *real* followers.  You are just attracting other people who also want to inflate their numbers.

What I see happening is that the users with the most *real* followers will have the best opportunity to monetize with Twitter.

Twitter reminds me of a book written by Seth Godin titled “The Idea Virus”.  He writes about finding people who *influence* your niche the most and getting them to spread your idea.

The Twitter users with the large followings will be the influencers (i.e. Oprah).  If you could just get one of these influencers to tweet about your product or service, what would that do for your sales?

Something to think about.

I am also looking at other ways people are monetizing with Twitter and will include that in a little report I am putting together for you that details my Twitter experience.

But I think the companies that are going to make big money are the ones that build secondary Twitter services.

Here are a few good ones.

You can customize your Twitter experience by creating your own tweet browser that can also include Facebook.

Anytime someone mentions your name or product on Twitter, you can get an email alert.
This is like a huge data center for what is happening on Twitter.
You can actually send out tweets in the future.  Very similar to an autoresponder.

And the list goes on!

I will place all these great Twitter resources and more that I have discovered in the nice little report for you, so stay tuned.

Free 89-page “The Insiders Guide To CPA Marketing Profits”

I just released one of the most comprehensive guides on CPA marketing.  It basically explains how the CPA (cost-per-action) industry works and how you can make a great deal of money by promoting CPA offers.

It also covers a multitude of different traffic sources that you can monetize and I do go into some advanced pay per click strategies.

Who’s Email Do You Read?

I came across a post the other day on a popular forum asking for tips on creating a subject line that generates a higher open rate for an email.

That really got me thinking.

Is it *really* the subject line that gets you to open up the email or is it really the name in the sender’s field?

Seriously, think about it.

If you are on multiple Internet marketing lists, then most of the marketers sending you emails are already trying to use all the subject line tricks in the world.

For example, a while back when some marketers talked about using the headline “Bad news…” in your ubject line to get a higher open rate, almost everybody killed this to death.

But using sly subject lines is only going to get you so far before your list starts realizing that there is very little substance in the email content related to your subject line.

I don’t know about you, but the first thing that catches my eye is “who” sent the email.

I think *that* dictates the open rate of an email.  At least it does in my case.

If your buddy Billy, who always provided you with good information, wanted you to meet him to tell you a big secret versus Bobby “the scum bag” who always made false promises who had a similar secret, who would you go see first?

This reminded me of an email I sent out a few weeks ago with a link to an interesting article in Inc. magazine.

Here is the link again:

This talks about providing a “good user experience” in order to develop a following.  Once you have accomplished that, the money will follow (as in the case with Markus’ Plenty Of Fish dating site).

Now I have been thinking about how very rare I email my lists, but I am sure you appreciate the rare emails versus pitching you with something every other day.

You are on my list and a countless number of other marketing lists for *one* reason.

To learn how to make *more* money.

Now if I don’t provide you with that or at least point you to the right resources to help you achieve that, than I am not providing a “good user experience” right?

And if I don’t consistently provide you with a “good user experience”, I don’t think it will matter what I put in the subject line.

As soon as you see my name in the sender’s field, you will think twice about opening my emails based on my past performance.

Now, let me ask you this if you have a list and it doesn’t matter what niche it is in:

“Do you provide a good user experience?”

If the answer is “no”, this might be the reason why you have a poor open rate.
