101Contact Review – Can Personalization Increase Sales?

With special offers everywhere you turn these days, it’s difficult to make your sales pages and opt-in pages stand out. One way to make your offers stand above the rest is by personalizing your pages to speak directly to your customers – read my review below to find out how 101Contact makes this so easy.

How Can Personalization Improve Your Sales?

Imagine sending an email out to your mailing list with a link to your sales page, and each client that clicks the link will see a different version of the page customized with their personal information. For example, if I clicked on the link it could say something like “Special Offer for Priscilla Schoeman” as the title, with a picture of me underneath. Don’t you think that seeing their own name and photo on the page would make your customers immediately sit up and take notice?

And you can take the personalization even further. Instead of starting with a generic “Dear Friend” as so many sales letters do, you could say “Dear Priscilla”, and then go on to say something like “Since you have been a valued subscriber since May 2015, I’ve decided to offer you the chance to … Read more

Thrive Leads Review – Ninja Bonus: List Building Hacks

thrive leads templates
Thrive Leads, the new list building plugin for WordPress, has just been released! As a customer of the Thrive Themes membership program, I was able to get early access to the plugin, and I’ve been testing it out for the last few days.

I was especially excited to try it because according to Shane Melaugh, Thrive Leads is better than Hybrid Connect (his previous list building plugin that I also bought) in every way and it’s on a completely new level compared to any other list building plugin out there. That’s a pretty bold claim, so let’s take a look and see what it can do!

A bunch of video-related products have launched recently, including Easy Sketch Pro 2 and VideoMakerFX. Now Explaindio Video Creator is launching on 11 November, and it looks like it might contain all the features of the other two video creators combined. I’ve tested it out, and in this Explaindio review I’ll cover all its features, and how it compares to Easy Sketch Pro 2 and VideoMakerFX.

What Is Explaindio?

It has a weird name, but it’s a pretty cool video creator software for both Mac and PC, brought to us by Nick LaPolla, Todd Gross, and Andrew Darius. Todd Gross has been behind some of the most successful launches in the video marketing industry this year, and Nick LaPolla is the creator of Simple Video Pro 2, which I reviewed previously on this blog.

With this software, you can create a professional looking video in minutes complete with HD video backgrounds, kinetic text, cartoon animations, whiteboard sketches, and more. You can … Read more

Rankings Institute Member Results

Some of my readers who read my review of The Rankings Institute have asked me what kind of results can be obtained with the course.

We’ve all bought courses before where we followed everything to the letter and still didn’t see any results – sometimes it seems like only the experts who have been doing SEO and internet marketing for years are able to get the rankings and traffic we all dream of.

So to give you proof that these methods can be used successfully by everyone, I contacted some of my fellow Rankings Institute members and asked if I could share their results and screenshots with you. A big thank you to all those who agreed! :)

You will see the results vary – this is because every niche is different, and everyone chose which techniques to implement according to their budget and time constraints. I wanted to give you all a realistic view of what kind of results can be achieved, and so I didn’t pick and choose only the best results to show you.
