Back in March I purchased a product through the affiliate link of John Thornhill, as he was offering some great bonuses. These included a promotional tweet on his two twitter accounts, a banner ad on one of his sites for 6 months plus a guest post on his blog! It seemed too good an opportunity to miss. The product I purchased, Covert Commissions is good, but it was the traffic bonuses that swayed me.
Thing is, I`ve been putting things off, finding all kinds of excuses like “what could I possibly post about on John Thornhill`s blog?”
In the last week or so I have been feeling guilty because the 6 month deadline for claiming those bonuses is nearly up and I was annoyed with myself that I could be letting this chance of free targeted traffic slip by.
At this point I re-watched some video rants that John Thornhill has posted on his blog from time to time and this helped me to get motivated!
So, I sat down at my computer and forced myself to write a blog post about… wait for it……procrastination and motivation!
Once I got started, the damn thing more or less wrote itself! It took me less than 45 minutes to write the post and the tweet, prepare the banner and send them off for approval.
By the way, the blog post, tweet and banner are all promoting my link to Dean Holland`s Big Commission Blueprint.
I am hoping that finally conquering this self-imposed hurdle will reap rewards in the weeks and months to come in the form of extra traffic to my blog & BCB link. If nothing else, I feel better for having taken action! 🙂
It has been incredibly hot & and humid these last couple of weeks and therefore not exactly ideal for doing any kind of work! However, I do have some progress to report……
My latest solo ad, which was a three parter, has now completed. The second & third parts gave me 220 clicks each and netted me 58 & 69 subscribers respectively. I also got two Big Commission Blueprint front-end sales 🙂 I also had a sale of The Affiliate Club a day after the solo ad finished!
I have joined two more banner sites, MyTrafficSite & Traffic&Sales4Me which are sister sites to InstantBanners4Me, which I mentioned in a previous blog post. These three sites are owned by marketer Frank Salinas and it is in fact his traffic that was sent to this last 3 part solo ad.
I have upgraded in both these two new sites aswell, which saves a lot of time clicking on ads to collect points & gets me better commissions on any upgraded referrals.
I also grabbed Frank Salinas “Back To School” offer which comprised of a 120 click solo ad, a 100 click banner ad on his download & thank you pages, 3 lifetime banner ads on each of his above mentioned banner sites plus 12 months of e-mail follow-ups where he will place my e-mail swipe into his autoresponder and leave it there for a year! This deal was too good to refuse, and I am confident that this will result in lots more traffic to my BCB link and hopefully some sales too!
