  • 3. There is great opportunity in internet marketing and home business development. We consider it a very viable method of increasing one's income. There is money to be made! This is a growth industry still in its infancy. The internet is making the world smaller, and any new beginner must understand that their market is international. There are over 34 million registered domains (websites). Industry experts forecast that there will be over 500 million registered domains in the next 10 Years. Those staking a firm position in this market NOW, stand a great chance of succeeding very well once we come out of this global recession. Internet marketing and making money online is not rocket science. Yet the vast majority of people, some say as high of 95 percent of those that try to make money online, fail. And, there are several levels of failure. Some will try for a few months, get frustrated then simply quit; while others will continue to spend money needlessly for years. There are several reasons for this failure. First and foremost, they fail to treat it as a real business. While they like the idea of making money online, they just lack the basic understanding and commitment to work their Internet home business as a real business. If one simply views Internet marketing as a business and treats it like a business, they will succeed. Secondly, too many people just jump from Program to Program and never land at a place where they can get real help in building their Internet home business. They would rather throw lots of money at expensive educational programs that promise to teach them how to start and grow their business. And third, new Internet venture seekers lack the discipline to stay with a single program and work it to success. So, let‟s start with some basics to gain a little more perspective: 1 There are three fundamental things that a new business needs to get started; 1.) a product that people want and has value, 2.) a metod of letting everyone know you have this product, and 3.) paying customers. To repeat... there are three primary components in an internet based business:  Programs/Products,  Advertising/Marketing/Promotion, and  Clients/Buyers. 2 There are over 50,000 programs out there on the Internet; resulting in little discipline and guidance toward success; though the promises of success and immediate wealth are plentiful.  Beware of trying to eat all the "forbidden fruit," and maintain focus. This is anyone's biggest challenge. 3
  • 4.  Over 90 percent of Internet Business advertisers use "Free" teaser advertisements. These "Free" programs most often attempt to limit you to the extent that you have to purchase an upgrade program to reap any benefit. These upgraded programs might be called "Pro", "Gold", "Level 2", etc..  Customer service is a critical aspect in analyzing Program/Product and Advertising/Marketing (more on this in Item #7). We found that a good deal of internet businesses are fleeting. The owners skim from the top, then move on to another venture. This "internet strip mining" is difficult to identify. However, there are some common characteristics. For example: heavy use of auto-responder messages to get you excited about an opportunity, followed by no follow-up communication once you have joined. 3 We estimate that 90 percent of internet businesses use Direct or "Intrusive" Marketing which focuses on the acquisition of new client/buyers thru spam, misuse of auto-responders and other measures. By comparison, we believe that Relationship Marketing, which focuses on client/buyer retention and continued satisfaction, better serves any new business. Any successful business owner knows that the client comes first. We follow this basic philosophy: “Your success can be best measured by the number of people to whom you have passed on the tools to ensure their success.”  Developing Clients/Buyers is critical. In other words, building a LIST of potential buyers. These Clients/Buyers need to be nurtured. On the other hand, there are an increasing number of opportunities that offer exaggerated success stories on how to accomplish this. Such websites are established Internet marketers simply promoting their Program/Products. They are operating with large LISTs and simply misusing them.  We will show you how to build your LIST later in this publication.  Understand how business is done on the Internet: There are a number of people who have been in Internet marketing for years, and they compiled huge lists. They network with one another. If they have a Program or Product to promote, they will form a “Joint Venture” with other Internet marketers. Accordingly, these other Internet marketers will broadcast a message to their LIST, saying something like: “Hey Mario, A good friend of mine is about to release a Product that you absolutely have to take a look at.” And, this other Internet marketer will either make a commission on each sale, or he/she will establish an understand that the next time they come up with an opportunity they want to promote, the first Internet marketer will send their message to his/her LIST.  By our definition, this is Intrusive Marketing. These Internet marketers are interested in making that next sale and increasing their wealth. The trick is in finding an Internet marketer that is building his/her business through Relationship Marketing. In other words, someone dedicated to building their business by truly passing on their valuable knowledge to help others build their business. 4
  • 5. Someone who has a strong customer support and training program in place. This is the true path to success in Internet Marketing today. And, this is where we come in...! We will show you a Proven Path to Success in Internet Marketing. But, YOU have to understand the First Rule of Internet Marketing… You Do Not Make Money on the Internet by Joining Programs. You Make Money on the Internet by Learning How to Advertise, Market, and Promote Programs like MaxGXL. And, you need to know the basic tools that are required to build your business. You have to commit to using and developing these tools to put AMPs into your business. Advertise Market Promote = AMPs It does not matter if your business is Max International or any other program. You must learn how to earn in Internet Marketing! It just doesn‟t make sense to sign-up for any program or product until you acquire some basic AMP skills or join a team like ours. Keep reading… because in this short e-book, we are going to give you some basic fundamentals that will give you the opportunity to get started NOW! We are going to personally lead you through the process to ensure that you have the very best training available in Internet marketing. It does not matter if your business is ACME People Search, Max International or any other program. You must learn how to earn in Internet Marketing! It just doesn‟t make sense to sign-up for any program or product until you acquire some basic AMP skills or join a team like ours. Keep reading… because in this short e-book, we are going to give you some basic fundamentals that will give you the opportunity to get started NOW! We are going to personally lead you through the process to ensure that you have the very best training available in Internet marketing. But first… here are 5 Essential Tips that I believe warrant series consideration by anyone who wants to build their ACME People Search business: 5
  • 6. 1. Learn How to Do Some Basic Keyword Research. You can start with Google's free Keyword Research Tool Start with a 3-5 keyword string. There is much less competition with the major search engines for these "long tailed keywords." Stay away from paid tools until you understand Google's tool. Paid tools have to get their information from Google and other search engines anyway. They just slice and dice this information in different ways. 2. Use this Keyword Research to Create a Website Domain Name. A domain name, for example, www.your-keyword-dominated-domain.com, is your branded Internet business's location on the Internet. You can have the greatest website in the world, but if no one knows where to find you, you website is of little value. More on this later! SPECIAL NOTE: There is a special Forum contest going on until the end of May, 2010 called 'Let's Have an APS Micro Niche Challenge!' You can find that thread here: http://acme-people-search-forum.com/pos … 0/#p120120 I highly recommend this thread whether or not you are going to participate. It addresses Set 1 & Step 2 in this post, and presents an awesome learning opportunity both through May 2010 and beyond. 3. Learn Basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Principles. SEO allows for easy indexing of your business website by the major search engines (Google, Yahoo Search and Bing). And, this brings YOU free traffic. You need to drive consistent traffic to your business website. You can download a free copy Seomoz.org's Beginner's Guide to SEO or, Google's SEO Starter Guide. You do not have to master this practice. Just focus on learning about Meta Tags, titles and descriptions, and on how to use your keywords in your title, description and keyword tags. You will be better prepared for step 4. If you have questions on Step1, Step 2 or Step 3, post your question as an original Forum thread at: Free Advertising Methods (Article Marketing, SEO) 4. Build an Internet Home Business Website. For the best results, you need a hosting service to host your domain. Your hosting company should also come with a bundled script program called Fantastico Delux. Fantastico allows you do one-step WordPress installations. I recommend HostGator's "Baby Account" for this. With their "Baby Account" you get unlimited hosting for as many WordPress sites as you may need in the future. More important to you, WordPress has become the industry standard for 'easy' SEO. It has a huge number of free Plugins that are available to you and some really excellent SEO Plugins. For more information or to ask specific questions, please go to or post at this Forum thread: Take Hostgator Hosting to the Hilt! 6
  • 7. 5. Get an E-mail Marketing Program, a.k.a, Auto-Responder. This tool will allow you to start building your LIST; and you need a LIST to succeed with your Internet home business. These are your clients/buyers with whom you develop long-term relationships. Plus, an Auto-Responder, like GetResponse, Aweber, or GVO‟s e-Responder, allows you to place a capture form (examples on page 15) on your business website to start collecting e-mail addresses. Start building those relationships. By following these 5-steps, you can begin to build your ACME People Search business on a solid foundation. This will help you avoid wasting money and time as you might otherwise do without these tips. Plus, these 5- steps will have a synergistic effect on your effort to build your business. You are now capable of getting a great jump on some free traffic to your website from the major search engines; and your business will succeed as you develop your relationships with your Auto-Responder right from the beginning. In other words, you are way ahead of most of your peers. By using these 5-steps you are Advertising, Marketing and Promoting your business right "out of the gates!" And, all you need are some basic tools to get started. So, let us give you those tools right now. There are 3 Critical Tools; Tools that you absolutely have to have to succeed… and we only teach success! Critical Tool #1. DOMAIN Name Finding a great domain name for your business takes some thought and keyword research. When we do keyword research to find a great domain it‟s important to stop and think about in terms of what people are going to type into a search box when they search for this product or opportunity online. The reason that search engines are so popular is that they provide a valuable service. They help people find what they need. In other words, they help people solve problems. If you need new tires for your car, that is a problem you want to solve. The words they type into a search box are known as Keyword Strings. Keywords are very important. If you want to get your business off to a strong start, you want a highly optimized site for search engine ranking. Try to get a domain name that contains your main Keyword String. You should take the time learning how to do keyword research. Ideally, you should find a keyword phrase that has a high search volume and reasonable competition. Using the Google Adwords Keyword Research Tool, here are the steps to follow. 1. Use a 3 to 4 keyword string, only (no more, no less). 2. Base it on a product or service that sells well online (like People Search, or Home Based Business). Do not live or die by these phrases. Be creative! 3. Do a Global Monthly search and look for volume above 3,000 (with the Google AdWords Research Tool set to “Exact” Search). Criteria for high search volume. 7
  • 8. 4. Do a “Broad” Phrase search with a count of less than 1 million results on the Google search page for that keyword string. Criteria for reasonable competition. This tells you how many sites use your keyword string. 5. Find a keyword string with an Estimated Average CPC above $1. 6. See if you can purchase a domain name with your selected keyword string with ONLY the following extensions: .com, .net, .org. In a typical “find a great domain name” situation, we would be telling you to jump on the Google Adwords Keyword Research Tool to find a great domain name. But since Max GLX is so new, there is no current keyword data on the internet to use this method. So, here is what we do… And, we want to show you by example. Click on the following link: Google Insights for Search Tool. 1. Type MaxGXL into the search box. 2. In the Filter section, make sure the following are all selected: Web Search, Worldwide, Last 12 Months, and All Category. 3. Click “Search” Take a look at the graph. It is basically showing that over the past year, there really have only been 50-80 searches in any given month. That‟s what a new “niche” looks like. (Please note: This data is subject to change.) On the bottom portion of the page, under „Regional Interest‟ it shows that all the searches are coming from Canada and the USA. Most new “niche” products start this way. Scroll down to search terms, and you will see that most people are searching for the keyword “maxGXL scam”. But this is not the important data that you want to consider for your domain. Why? Well ask yourself: “Do people buy scams?” No, they buy products that solve problems, right? So, look over at the Rising Searches on the right, and you will see that the term “MaxGXL side effects” has increased by 190%, but again people don‟t buy side effects, they buy solutions to problems. The Rising Searches further shows “maxgxl reviews” has increased 160% and “maxgxl glutathione” by 80%. These are the types of phrase that people type into a search engine when they are looking for solutions to problems. 8
  • 9. Conclusion, find a domain name with either “maxgxl glutathione” or “maxgxl reviews” included on the front end of the name. We recommend a .com, .biz, or .info extension. If you cannot get it, try adding hyphens. For example: maxgxl-glutathione. The search engines view hyphens as spaces. So, in effect, this should not hurt your SEO efforts (covered below). Author’s Note: I have been experimenting with Domain Samurai (Beta) over the past month, and I am seeing something I‟ve never seen before. They provide a measurement for URL Keyword density. They assign a higher density score for a tight keyword string in the URL. In other words, if I were to choose between “acmepeoplesearchnews” as a URL and “eacmepeoplesearch,” they are giving the later a higher density score. Critical Tool #2. WEBSITE. You have to have a website. But, we are not recommending a traditional Website. We recommend a Blog. The major search engines (Google, Yahoo Search, and Bing) really seem to love blogs, and you want these search engines to send you free traffic. So, by setting up the recommended blog service, you are actually putting AMPs into your business. We recommend WordPress blogs and will tell you why in a minute. These are the benefits of having a Website:  Establishes Your Professional Internet Presence o Provides Business E-Mail Accounts o Personalizes Your Business Location  Allows You to Brand YOU  Prioritize Your Programs and Help You Focus on Your Core Business  Save Time, and Money  Reallocate Your Resources to Achieve a Higher o Return on Investment o Achieve the Earnings Goal that You are Seeking  Create Your OWN landing pages  Create Those Critical Capture Forms that FEED into Your Auto-Responder (“The Money is in The List”). How to Set Up A Business Website: You Need a Personal Business Website to Brand You and Your Business. The most essential tools that an Internet or Network marketer needs to succeed in their internet home business is a professional Business Website. There are several choices. You can pay to have one professionally developed and spend anywhere from $1,500 – $2,000, or you can choose from any number of free “blog” services like Google Blogger/BlogSpot or WordPress.com. They will also host your blog free. This is not a bad place to get started, if you want to practice putting content on the Internet. 9
  • 10. However, if you want to do it right, you will need your own Website with your own „Business Trade Name,‟ or Domain Name… as described above. Even if you went the expensive route and had your Website professionally developed, you would still need to pay for hosting as well as a fee for registering you Domain Name. Plus, when you own your own Website and Domain Name you are branding you and your business. You get a professional e-mail account. This allows you to create your own competitive advantage. Internet marketing is not about products, it‟s about you. People want to get to know you and you want to develop a positive professional relationship with your potential clients/buyers/referrals. Using a “hotmail,” “yahoo,” or “msn” account essentially sends the wrong message to people. It tells them you are not a serious player in Internet Marketing. Our choice for someone just getting started and on a limited budget is HostGator. HostGator is a fantastic value! They provide an uncharacteristically high amount of functionality, coupled with unmatched customer service at an extremely reasonable price ($9.95 For the “Baby Package”). The “Baby Package” provides plenty of room to expand your business. It provides unlimited hosting and unlimited WordPress blog installation. Your HostGator package is managed through C-Panel. Here is a screenshot of C-Panel: HostGator‟s C-Panel provides easy access to a number of features. As the picture above shows, this is where you set-up your e-mail accounts for your domains. You simply click on the “Email Accounts” icon. And, you establish them according to your domain name. So, if you‟re name is “James” and your domain name is “build-your-internet-business,” your 10
  • 11. email address will be James@build-your-internet-business.com. If you still want to use your “yahoo” account to manage your business, you can. There is another function available, Forwarders, that allows you to forward business e-mail to your “yahoo, msn, hotmail, Google, etc” e- mail account. This screenshot above is particularly important! Notice the blue „smiley face‟ icon at the end of the fourth row. I‟m referring to the „Fantastico‟ icon. Once you have your domain established, you simply click on the „Fantastico‟ icon. Simply having Fantastico is worth the price you pay for your HostGator account! …and, you will be taken to this page. It shows a ton of scripts or programs that are available via Fantastico. They are all free and included in your HostGator hosting account. But, the one we want to focus on here is WordPress. In the left column, under „Blogs‟ you will find WordPress. You want to make that selection! You will then be taken to this screen (see how easy this is?): All you need to do next is select the domain you want to install WordPress on, under “New 11
  • 12. Installation,” and you will have your new blog up and running in minutes! WordPress‟s unlimited capacity and flexible high impact plugins offer any Internet marketer a unique ability to immediately start promoting their business. These plugins are not available with the free WordPress account that you can get at WordPress.com. Since 2002, blogs began to develop popularity with Internet marketers. They are also increasingly popular to those that just want to put a lot of content on the internet. There are sports blogs, political blogs, community blogs, etc., and this trend will continue to grow. If you read any popular blogging tips online, you will find that there are a number of free blogging services such as Google‟s Blogger or MSN‟s Live Search. WordPress.com also offers a very popular free service. I‟m sure you are familiar with the importance of building your reputation (your Brand) through the myriad of Social Networking sites that are available. Many tend to overlook the fact that the same is true of blogging, or using your blog‟s comments to communicate with other professionals in your network. Commenting on someone else‟s blog and allowing people to make comments on yours is a very powerful way to build an Internet marketing business. WordPress is often positioned as a tool that well, creates a blog. But an increasing number of Internet marketers are finding that they can also use it as the most important tool in building an Internet marketing business; i.e., creating a website. So, not only are you getting a great, and easy to use, website creator with WordPress; you are getting all the advantages associated with blogging. One of the more powerful capabilities of WordPress lies in its ability to manage large amounts of text, audio and video content. After 10-15 pages it becomes difficult to manage a static HTML site. Although you can use template-driven software as well like Dreamweaver, nothing beats the ease of WordPress. Since most Internet marketers are inclined to advertise their affiliate relationships on their blog, a word of caution here. WordPress.com has banned the use of affiliate links on its free WordPress.com blogs. If you are just getting started in affiliate marketing and want to use a free blogging service, you are better off using Google‟s Blogger which is much less restrictive. Once again, if you are willing to pay a modest HostGator membership fee and enroll in their “Baby” plan, you can host an unlimited number of WordPress blogs on this account (currently only $9.95 monthly). Plus, you will not have any problem with size limitation on pages, pictures, or videos. Furthermore, if you have a HostGator account, and do a 1-step installation of WordPress on your domain/URL, there is no need to download WordPress template and do an FTP transfer. This is done through C-Panel using Fantastico Deluxe. WordPress offers the industry standard in Web Design today, and they can do this because of their relationship with a myriad of programmers that want the recognition of being a WordPress author. In return, it‟s you that values most. These programmers have developed and will continue to develop plugins that make your end-user experience easy, but more importantly… search engine friendly and optimized! The single most important thing in Internet Marketing is having the ability to drive targeted traffic to your website. Traffic means visitors, and visitors mean clients and sales. There are basically two ways of driving traffic to your site; you can pay for visits or you can get it free. WordPress is optimized to provide free traffic. Here is a shot of exactly what I mean. 12
  • 13. In the above screenshot, we are showing two different things. First and foremost, the column on the left is free or “organic” search on Google. The column on the right is “sponsored,” or “paid” search. At the very top of organic search is our primary MaxGXL website (http://maxgxlglutathioneonline.com. This is a WordPress blog). You will learn how to do this as a member of our team! The “sponsored,” or “paid” search advertisers in the right column are paying anywhere from $.50 to $2.00 (rough estimates) for someone just to click on their advertisement. Why pay when you can learn to earn the right way on a team postured for success. …Find out why WordPress is the Best Solution for Your Business The power of WordPress is its ability to host all the valuable plugins that are free to install. In fact, the possibilities are virtually unlimited. These plugins help you manage and take and Internet Marketing business to the next level. Here are just a few recommendations to get you started: 1. Easy Adsense: Allows you to monetize you site with Google Adsense ads 2. Google XML Settings: Generates a sitemap compatible with Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Ask search. 3. Platinum SEO Pack: Complete Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your blog. 4. Follow Me: Allow you to add a Twitter follow-me badge. 5. Pretty Link: Shrink and manage your own affiliate links. 6. WordPress.com Stats: Tracks view, post/page views, referrers and clicks. (Author’s Note: There is more on Plugins and their installation in the Search Engine Marketing Section) 13
  • 14. SEO is a critical element in advertising, marketing, and promoting your Internet business. SEO is all about driving free organic traffic to your web business. WordPress plugins further increase your SEO rankings with Google, Bing and Yahoo or Google. And, it’s all available to you at just $9.95 a month at HostGator! You want to select the “Baby” package at HostGator. This is the package that will give you unlimited hosting, and this is the package you will pay $9.95 a month for! Critical Tool #3. An Auto Responder Along with your own Domain Name and branded Website, an Auto-Responder (AR) is the other critical tool you need to promote your MaxGXL Business on the Internet. When I show you its potential, you'll see what I mean. The vast majority of Internet Marketers fail miserably and give up within the first year. Why? Well, one reason is that they do not treat Internet Marketing as a business, and they fail to recognize and use the tools associated with this business. This is a "foot-stomper." There is no quiz at the end, but you really need to understand this. We truly want to see you succeed. The money is in YOUR List! Are you familiar with that term? It‟s as true today as it has ever been. Your List is your database of client/buyers. These are you customers and you need to learn how to treat them right. Ask any successful internet marketer and they will tell you that you if you are serious about making money online, then you need to build a list. Furthermore, this is a list that YOU own. It's not a Safelist or any other system that allows you to send mail to thousands of people. If you use these types of services, you are not going to experience the conversion rates that you might hope for. Consider this! There are a lot of millionaires that have made their fortune in Internet marketing. I can virtually guarantee you that they do not use Safelists. I am not saying that you should not use these types of services, particularly if you are brand new to Internet marketing. Simply augment your activity with these services if you desire. Do not solely rely on them to make you money. It is just not going to happen! If you want to be successful, you have to have your own list! There are several ways to do this, and the most common are listed below. When you have your business website and hosting, it‟s rather easy. The trick is to not forget to put a capture form or link to a capture form page on everything that you send: 14
  • 15. Example of an opt-in or lead capture form! I recently watched a U-Tube video presented by a guy who got into Internet marketing in 2006. He had to be convinced, literally banged over his head that he needed to develop an Opt-In LIST. Two-and-a half years later (the video was done in 2008); he had over 30,000 subscribers on his LIST. Just imagine if you had a third of that in two years. Imagine having 10,000 List members, and you wanted to promote a Program or Product. The conversion rate is about 10 percent. So, you have 1,000 people that will buy your Program or Product! Can you see the profit potential! So, let‟s just say that you have a great program that you believe in and it will cost your List members $45. You make a 70 percent commission… so how do these numbers add up? A 70 percent commission $45 is $31.50. You sign-up 1,000 people, so you just made $31,500. That‟s a fairly decent payday! That‟s the power of having a List! On the other hand, you do not want to “burn” your list with a bad idea. You do not want to lose credibility with your client/buyers. But, if it's a solid business building recommendation where you both gain, you have actually increased your credibility for your next recommendation. And, that is what this business is all about! We know of one, if not the most successful Internet marketing Guru today. We do not want to use his name here. That's just bad business. He has well over 700,000 members on his list. We are on his list. We get e- mails from him virtually every day telling me why we need to buy this or that product. He provides absolutely no value or advice. We describe this as permission based SPAM! But, you and we cannot afford to use our lists in this manner. We need to develop relationships. We have to make people know like and trust us before they will buy from us. I'm sure the above mentioned Guru did pretty much the same when he first started in the business 10-years ago. You need an Auto-Responder (AR) to manage your LIST of people and develop and nurture relationships with them. Your business does not start and stop at one Program/Product. These are your clients. You need to learn the skills to work with and for them. Here a few techniques to capture customers to your LIST, based on a sample campaign that we are running. 15
  • 16. The first is a Squeeze Page. A Squeeze Page is designed to capture an e-mail address for a particular campaign. On the left, you see a very successful Squeeze Page that we use to capture prospective members to MaxGXL. We do not hit them with messages like you “have to join” this now. We want people to fully understand the Product. We start them off with company produced videos, and let them decide if this is a business they might be prepared to get into. The sign-in form is a capture form that is available in any Auto-Responder (AR) that you might use. It‟s provided to you in an HTML format (or code), but any website building software will easily accept this HTML code. We would like you to notice a couple of things on this Squeeze Page. First of all, Rick is branding himself with his picture and name. Recall what we said earlier, people will buy, or in this subscribe to something, from someone they know, like and trust. He uses this same picture on everything he publishes. Secondly, we have provided all the pertinent and relative facts of MaxGXL to generate some interest in the bullets. And, third, we have given them an opportunity to learn more - simply by providing their name and email address. WordPress allows you to easily put a capture form on your site. Always keep in mind that you need to have a series of AR messages prepared to educate, service and pass value to the people that sign-up for your campaign. “We have a set of messages ready for you use once you join our team.” Authors Note: We have pre-built AR messages to pass to all our team members on any program that we promote. If we have not made money in a program, we are not going to promote it to our LIST. But, as mentioned, our AR messages are designed to build relationships by passing on value and information to our subscribers. These are the type of message to which we are referring. This website, or blog, was created with WordPress. This is our primary website mentioned earlier. WordPress calls the right column a Sidebar. The sign-up form is simply inserted into this blog. You want your sign-up forms at, or near the top of your blog page. This is also known as “on top of the fold.” This simply means that anyone viewing your blog has access to your capture form without having to scroll down your page. This all takes time. If you do not have an AR yet, get one. You have to have one. An AR is an e-mail marketing program that allows you to do what I am describing. Just as you need a List to be a successful in this business, you need AR to manage your build and manage your list. One final word on building your LIST. If you are truly serious about establishing yourself in Internet marketing, you do not want to find yourself, 2-3 years from now, without a LIST. There are a ton of people still “spinning their wheels” in Internet marketing wondering why they don‟t experience any success. One of the major reasons is that they simply do not have a LIST, and they have not developed relationships with enough people to make their business successful. Do not get caught in that trap! 16
  • 17. There are several AR services that we recommend: 1. Aweber. This is a favorite among Internet marketers and the autoresponder service that David uses. I have never used it. The only negative thing about Aweber that I have heard is that they quickly increase you monthly subscription costs as your list gets larger. You can learn more by following this link: Aweber.com 2. GetResponse. A bit sophisticated, but the look and feel is more professional than Aweber. This is the service Rick uses for the Affiliate Intell Bulletin and Affiliate Intell Broadcast that many of you subscribe to. You can get a free trial by using this link: Get Response.com _________________________________________ Here is an extremely valuable technique that you will learn as a member of our team. A technique often overlooked by new Internet Marketers, but a sales technique used and taught by some of the most successful „gurus‟ in Internet marketing. You want to take every opportunity to sell or get people to join your list. All these AR‟s have their own canned thank you page. When someone joins your list, this thank you page is sent. We will show you how to build thank you pages that keep on selling. For example: This is another of our websites, and it‟s used for an entirely different promotion. As mentioned, we publish a major newsletter called the Affiliate Intell Bulletin. This is the „thank you‟ page that someone gets once they opt-in to our newsletter. It does a number of things. First and foremost, it provides a personal thank you for joining. It also provides our readers value by receiving our „free‟ List Building Tutorials for Newbie‟s. It provides value by telling them where they can get a free HTML editor. It introduces them and captures them to our MaxGXL campaign which is followed up with our AR messages designed to bring them into this business opportunity. It provides them a link to get their own free AR, putting them on another one of our Lists. And, it introduces them to a Forum where they can obtain free and valuable information 24/7/365 on virtually anything they want to promote. Plus, we have a completely different capture form (top right corner) that brings them into another AR that shows them the value of joining another fantastic business. All the while, our theme is consistent… we teach them how to advertise, market and promote their Max 17

Search Engine Marketing (SEM): Techniques to Explode Your MaxGXL Business In this section, we will cover two components of SEM: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Mini- Networks to develop lots of search engine „juice‟ to drive free organic traffic to your Business Website. SEM is just a term that describes techniques that Internet marketers and webmasters use to get listed on the first pages of the major search engines. And, Google continues to dominate that market. You have already completed the first and most important step in this process by selecting your domain name. Now, we will give you some great ideas on finding other keywords for your marketing campaign. But first, Why is SEM So Important in the First Place? Why Not Just Jump Right into Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising? Here are some facts:  8 out 10 Internet users use the search engines (Google, Yahoo Search, Bing, etc) to find information on the product and services they want.  More than 60 percent of organic searches get click throughs.  Almost 12 percent of Google’s traffic will click on a site on Google’s second page.  Organic search results convert 30 percent higher the PPC paid listings.  Up to 85 percent of searchers ignore paid listings.  PPC costs are rising… almost 40 percent from 2009 to 2010.  60 percent of traffic is generated through video. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) 18
  • 19. Let‟s say you just saw the MaxGXL TV commercial for the first time and you wanted to find out more about the business opportunity. What would you type into that search box? A lot of people phrase their search as a question. This would actually amount to a “long-tail” keyword phrase. For example; „what is the maxgxl business opportunity.‟ Since Max International and MaxGXL is so new, you really do not need to focus on a „long tail‟ keyword. You can get on Google‟s first page by following our instructions. So, you might type in maxgxl business opportunity. You may choose this 3-word keyword string as your primary keyword. How to SEO Your WordPress Blog Business Website There two essential SEO plugins that you need to install on your WordPress Site: Google XML Sitemaps and Platinum SEO that help the search engines find and index your site. Here‟s an example of the WordPress back office where they are installed on this website. Incidentally, the above site belongs to Rick‟s 16-year old daughter who quickly became an expert on plugins after a short two weeks. While this might appear challenging to some, once you get in and see how easy it is to do, you too will get good at it real fast. Its virtually plug and play. Google XML Sitemaps will generate a sitemap of your website the will make it easy for the major search engines like Google, Yahoo Search, Bing and Ask.com to index your blog. When you install these plugins you simple do so right from your WordPress site (see screenshot that follows this paragraph). As mentioned earlier, there is no need to do complicated FTP uploads to the HostGator server. This next example shows exactly how this is done. On the left panel, look for Plugins; then click Add New and you will be taken to the Install Plugins page. Just enter Google XML Sitemaps into the search box and click 19

Special Note: In late May, we will be providing training via Hot Conference on other valuable WordPress Plugins; and on how to set up title tags, descriptions, and keywords in Platinum SEO! How to Set Up a Mini Network Establishing Mini Networks are an excellent way to create search engine juice to get first page rankings on Google for your selected keyword string. It employs Web 2.0 strategies based on: 1.) Social Media Sites and Social Bookmarking Sites, and 2.) Linking these sites to your WordPress blog to create a mini-network. Your mini-network will then start generating lots and lots of free traffic… traffic not only from Google, but also from Yahoo Search Marketing, MSN/Bing, ASK, and all the other search engines. These are the strategies that every Internet marketer should learn how to employ! And, they are most highly effective when setting up a campaign on a new program launch; for example, on Max International in general and MaxGXL in particular. Here is an example of our basic Mini Network strategy: 20
  • 21. Our WordPress blog sits at the center of the above diagram. It is our website (http://maxgxlglutathioneonline.com). Note that our primary keyword is MaxGXL Glutathione Online, and how it‟s built into our URL/Domain Name. The Sales Page is the Max International site that you have access to once you join. For example, it will look like this: www.max.com/246246. A similar number will be your member number! Here is how this works. The sites in yellow are Social Media Sites. There are a lot of others; like Squidoo, Wet Paint, Weebly, Wiki Dot, Tumblr, Xanga, Open Diary, Yahoo 360, Wikia, Blog Ladder, etc. If you use any of these other Social Media Sites, continue to do so. The sites in green are Social Bookmarking Sites. These are the Sites that we use in our network. There are over 120 of these sites, just too many to list here. We have found that these are the „most stable‟ sites available, so we have built them into our Mini Network. As you can see, we have limited our Mini Network to 8 Social Bookmarking Sites and 6 Social Media Sites. The linking rules are this: 1. Link the Social Bookmarking Sites to your Social Media Sites, and to your Website. 2. Link you Social Media Sites to other Social Media Sites, and to your Website. 3. Do not link Social Bookmarking Sites or Social Media Sites to your Sales Page. The Sales page has no credibility with Google. Thousands of people will have this same sales page. 4. Link your Website, and only your Website to your Sales Page. You are probably thinking, why go to all this trouble? It‟s worth it, and I‟ll prove it in a minute. You are basically telling Google that there is a lot of value in your website and that it‟s popular. The Google robots that crawl your website notice that other sites are linking to it… in other words, others are placing value in your Website. Google keeps a count of these positive “votes,” so when someone does a search using your keyword string, you will rank higher than others, and you will receive that free organic traffic. 21
  • 22. Here is an example and proof to what we are saying. Here are the recent results for a keyword search using our primary keyword “maxgxl glutathione online:” The top searches shaded in pink are paid or sponsored searches… as are the ads on the right. Notice how our site, www.maxglutathioneonline.com, and ranks second; so it‟s right at the top of Google‟s first page. That is simply a fantastic location. Plus, people who do searches have a lot more confidence in organic search than they do in the sponsored or paid links. Now take a look at the top site in the free or organic search section. The one that says “Starred results for maxgxl glutathione online.” That is another one of our sites!! If fact, it‟s a Social Media Site that links to our primary Website in our Mini Network. It‟s a blogger blog. Note: This site will not appear at the top of your Google screen. Google loves video! And, video converts very well to sales. We can keep it on top by employing some other strategies, or creating more links to this site. This is the awesome power of the Mini Network. Here‟s another key to building a successful Mini Network campaign. You want to write your content in the third person. In other words, you don‟t want say things like “check out my website.” Say things like “you can find more about this here.” You want to sound objective, not subjective; both on your Social Media Sites, and well as your Social Bookmarking Sites. 22

Do not overlook purchasing a Titanium account at GVO. First of all, you receive the E-Responder which allows up to 20,000 subscribers. This alone may be a better reason to join GVO rather than Aweber or GetResponse. But, that’s your decision!
