Over the past few months we have seen a lot of changes with how Facebook is treating Facebook Pages in users News Feeds. They have cut back on the average reach you will see with each post you make on your Page, but I believe there is still a lot of opportunity with Pages and I have been making updates to my tool, FPTraffic, to help maintain my reach and help other members as well.
Mixing Links and Photos
A few months ago I released a feature on FPTraffic that allows you to easily search through the millions of products available on Amazon.com and automatically schedule any of those products to be posted to any of your Facebook Pages with a click of your mouse. You can use your Amazon Associates ID and get credit for every sale generated within 24 hours of someone clicking on your link!
The Amazon feature was the first to allow FPTraffic members the ability to mix links in with their photo posts. Photos on Facebook have always gotten the highest engagement rate so that’s what I focused on for years, but with the recent changes I have found that you can actually help increase your engagement rate → Continue Reading
When I was in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit West earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome new people. However, the guys from ZeroPark really made a great first impression on me. They had a nice looking booth and when I stopped and talked to Robert, the CEO and owner of ZeroPark, I could tell that he knew what he was talking about and within a few minutes I knew we were going to be working together.
ZeroPark is a traffic network where you can bid on traffic from domain redirects. Domainers (people who buy domain names to sell or to advertise on) “park” their domains with ZeroPark and then earn revenue every time someone goes to that domain. ZeroPark will then sell the traffic from those domains to advertisers on ZeroPark.
The traffic from ZeroPark is called “zero-click” because when the user goes to the parked domain they are automatically redirected to whichever advertiser at ZeroPark has the highest bid for that domain. They do not actually need to click a link to be taken to the advertisement.
This type of traffic is similar to PPV pop ups, but from my experiences so far, → Continue Reading
It is really easy to get distracted when you have a lot of things going on and it seems like I constantly have a lot of things going on. Over the past few years I have learned a few tricks that I use to help stay productive. One of the most important things you can do is control your environment. No matter how crazy and busy things get, if you are in a calm environment you are more likely to be productive.
So, I thought I would give you a tour of my PeerFly office and explain things that I control to keep my environment comfortable and productive.
While I’ll admit my office at PeerFly is not always this clean, I do attempt to keep it as clean and uncluttered as possible most of the time. I’ve found that I am much more productive when there are not things scattered all over my desk.
I also started using duel screen monitors when I was in college and haven’t looked back since. Even though I have a 27 inch iMac, I still use my 27 inch duel screen pretty often. For example, I’ll have my email and PeerFly stats open → Continue Reading
In August 2013 I launched my first ever online course called How To Make Money On Your Travel Blog (this course is no longer being offered), and recruited 17 sign ups for around $3k in profit.
This might not be “big” time, but for many people an additional $3k would be a nice addition to their savings account. Additionally, as a result of the course I ended up undertaking a venture with one of the students that then led to another $9k in profit – but that’s another story.
I’d like to bring this case study to the readers of LukePeerfly.com where I know it will be appreciated and while it is still fresh.
Topics I will be covering are:
How I came up with my course idea How I developed the course materials How I priced my course How I marketed my course Advanced strategies I used to make it a success The results of the course (# of sign ups, total time invested, total money earned) What lessons I learned and what I would have done differently Why I stopped marketing the course even though it was making me money How I Came Up With My Course Idea → Continue Reading
