Update From Jeff

Hi All...

Having good fun in the summertime I hope!

Watch Out!


Good god, if you don't have to DON'T go anywhere near shopping malls at this time of year.

You have the back-to-school rush with crazed teenagers, hormones bouncing off the ceiling rolling their eyes and screaming at their parents, cellphones glued to their ears (how do they afford those things anyway) as they trudge into and out of store after store.

Suddenly, the impact of an entire year's worth of advertising ends up right in your lap, hitting the wallets of parents who struggle just to get through the last few weeks of summer break.

Eyes glazed over, hair standing on end, faces flaming red - yup - it's not so bad being the parent of a 4 year-old entering kindergarten this year.

I consider myself lucky.

Sure, we'll all have to make adjustments, he'll put us through a few nights of pure hell as he adjusts to life without mommy and daddy around 24X7 - but at least I'm not out thousands buying Calvin Klein this and Tommy that!

Well not YET anyway.

Many of you likely see the impact of this back to school crunch on your businesses - rest assured, buyers will come back and when they do, hopefully you are ready to give them what they want.

What exactly DO they want?

That's the topic of today's Feature Article.

Just before you leap into this issue, let me tell you about a cool site I came across this week. Check out the business model - kind of like franchising online. Interesting approach - check it out here:

Enjoy and thanks for reading.

USABLE NEWS From The World of Infoproduct Development

** Paypal Affiliate Program Launch

It was only a matter of time.

Referral marketing is the most powerful method of selling products and services online - a sort of "word of mouth" marketing in the online world.

Most other payment processors have referral marketing programs in place.

Paypal's is structured such that you earn $10 after your referral has made their first $1,000 online through Paypal, and then pays out "a percentage" of the new merchant's revenue up to $100 - for the first 6-months that merchant has his Paypal account.

Not a huge amount, but not bad nonetheless.

If you already have a Paypal account, you will find a new menu option when you login called "Refer Merchants"

If you don't have a Paypal account - you can get one right here:

** Pay-Per-Click Increasing Profits!

I absolutely LOVE to tell you about ways to both save marketing dollars and put more money in your pockets!

I'm happy to say I've done both using a new tool - just out.

If you are considering or have used Pay-per-click, you'll wish you had this long ago.

I've reduced my PPC marketing costs by over 50% and increased my PPC profit by over 100% with this tool.

I used the money-saving program called "Ad Word Analyzer" which will tell you exactly how many campaigns - by keyword - is currently running on Google and Overture.

I couldn't believe what I found.

Many of my keywords had over 80 campaigns running on one or the other of Google and Overture while less than 10 were running on the other.

What's that mean?

It meant that I was able to cut my competition and price per click WAY down - by over 80% in one case - by switching campaigns.

If you use Pay-Per-Click and aren't getting the results you want, you need to check out this tool...
