Easy Paycheck Formula 2 Review Part 1

Easy Paycheck Formula 2I first heard about Sara Young, the creator of Easy Paycheck Formula 2, in Andrew Hansen’s Forever Affiliate course – Andrew did an interview with her in one of the coaching modules.

Sara makes 6 figures a year working online, even though she’s a stay-at-home mom of 7 kids – which means she can’t have a lot of free time, right? I don’t have any kids and I never have time to do everything on my to-do list! But Sara says she works “barely part-time”.

So a few months ago when I heard about her new course, Easy Paycheck Formula 2, I was immediately interested.

The course is about making money online using only free methods, and though these methods can be used on various sites, this course focuses on Squidoo.

I haven’t had much luck with Squidoo yet, and I know I could be doing much better – often when researching niches in the Forever Affiliate course, one of the top spots on Google would be a Squidoo lens.

The points from the salespage that interested me the most were:

  1. No extra costs
  2. Can be done in less than 1 hour per day
  3. It works fast
  4. Teaches you how to get non-Google traffic
  5. Easy for complete beginners

The last point doesn’t affect me personally, but a lot of my readers have contacted me asking about courses for newbies. However, Sara says this course is also for intermediate marketers, so I’m hoping I’ll learn some stuff too.

In this review I’ll write my impressions as I go through the course, and let you know if it lives up to it’s promises or not.

Simple Video Pro 2 Review + Demo

Simple Video Pro 2aToday I’m reviewing Simple Video Pro 2, a video player WordPress plugin by Nick LaPolla and Mike Lantz.

I bought this plugin last year when the first version was released, because of the awesome features it had that I’d never seen before. It went on to become the top selling WSO ever!

Like so many other stuff I’ve bought, I didn’t get around to using it until much later – a few months ago actually! I was adding videos to a new site I’d made and I remembered this plugin I’d bought that could help increase conversions.

So I went to download the latest version, and found out that the new and improved version 2 was coming out soon. I was all set to upgrade when I found out that Nick had extended the year of free updates for anyone who bought on or after 18 August 2012 to include the new version!

That was awesome of him, but after some indecision I upgraded anyway, because I really wanted one of the new add-on modules and another year of updates. Of course it also helped that past customers of Simple Video Pro 1 get a discount for version 2! 😉

Tip: Are you also a previous customer? Then don’t pay full price for the new version! To get the discount click here, then press ctrl+f on the sales page to search for the phrase “Already a Member?”. Click the link and follow the instructions to get your discount.

I’ve installed the new version on this blog and tested it out, and in this review I’ll show you what I love about it, and what I wasn’t so impressed with.

Yes, there’s one feature that leaves something to be desired, which is unfortunate because it would be awesome if executed a bit better! Read on to find out more.

Forever Affiliate Review Part 9: Week 3 Coaching

Forever Affiliate Video CourseI’m back with a long overdue installment of my Forever Affiliate review!

I’ve been having a lot of problems with my internet connection the last few months, so I haven’t been able to work on any of my websites very much, and I had to put the Forever Affiliate course on hold. However, yesterday we finally found the signal booster that was packed away in our garage. Hopefully once we’ve set it up on the roof we’ll have regular internet access again!

This time I’m covering week 3 of the coaching, along with the relevant videos from Phase 2 of the basic course.

Forever Affiliate Video Course Phase 2: Testing and Validation

ForeverAffiliate Phase 2I already reviewed the first part of this phase in Part 6: Building Profitable Sites, so in this part of the review I’ll go over the last 3 sections.

Post 2012 Content Creation

This section has 7 videos, which are almost 2 hours long in total. The first thing Andrew teaches us is the general strategies to use for minisites and authority sites, and the differences between them. The focus of this course is minisites, though these minisites are not like the old-school minisites.

Andrew says we will only have 1 or 2 authority sites in our portfolio, because they take a long time to build up and start making money. This is a bit of a bummer for me, because my current portfolio is basically made up of only authority sites, but they do take ages to start making money so I’m excited to try making minisites too.

Scarcity Samurai Review

Update: 30 May 2016

Note that I now use a different scarcity plugin which I recommend over Scarcity Samurai. Read my Thrive Ultimatum review to find out more about it and to see how the two plugins compare. I have uninstalled Scarcity Samurai from this blog, so any scarcity banners or widgets you see now are made with Thrive Ultimatum.

Scarcity Samurai boxI caved and bought the Scarcity Samurai plugin today 😛

If you don’t already know, I’m a bit of an addict when it comes to WordPress plugins and themes. I try to keep out of the WSO section of the Warrior Forum as much as possible, otherwise I end up spending way more than I should.

This is because the WSO section is full of limited-time discounts and dimesales, the bane of my existence! When a product I like doesn’t have one of these, I usually put it on my wishlist and maybe come back to buy it in a few months – or I just forget about it, which is always better for my wallet 😉

On the other hand, if the product is discounted for a limited time or if it’s on a dimesale, I usually end up buying it that same day. It gets me every time! ^^;

These sales tactics work by applying scarcity to a product to get us (the buyers) to take action immediately, instead of putting it off for another day (that may never come). The creators of Scarcity Samurai tested the difference in conversions between a page that used Scarcity Samurai and one that didn’t, and the one that did use it had an increase in conversions of 450% – 4.5 times more sales!
