How to Generate Leads with Online Video and YouTube — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.
Today I’m going to show you how to generate leads with your videos. Whether you’re a real estate agent, an online marketer, an affiliate marketer, or whatever you’re trying to do, you’ll learn how to get people from your video over to your site.
The name of the game here is leads. Leads are the key to making money. If you can get a bunch of people in a database and email them whenever you want, then you can basically print money on demand.
Imagine right now if you could generate 3,000 clicks to anything you wanted, or even 100 clicks to anything you wanted. Wouldn’t that make a difference to your bottom line and to your business? Of course it would. So let’s talk about how to get leads from online video. You do this in four steps.
1. Know your target audience. When you’re trying to get leads from online video, the first thing you need to notice is who you’re talking to. Where are they coming from?
If you have a video on how to generate more leads for real estate, or you have a video on how to play guitar riffs, or a video on a specific book, or something like that, you need to know your target audience.
2. Create helpful content. Once you know your target audience, you want to create helpful content, no matter what it’s about.
If you’re making a video about how to play guitar riffs from a band tool, then you would show your audience how to play that one little riff. That’s your helpful content. If you’re showing them how to sell their house, or how to make more videos on YouTube, you’d make a little video about how to create a video or something like that.
You want to give them a little bit of teaser content that gives them value. Helpful equals value, so we want to provide value to the market in our video. This could be in the form of a one-minute video, a 30-second video, or a one-hour video. Whatever it is, you want to generate more leads. The shorter the video, usually the better. But of course, if someone opts into your mailing list after watching an hour-long video, they’re probably going to buy something, right? They’re pretty committed.
3. Lead them to offers based on content. Now, this is very important. When you’re doing this on YouTube or any other video platform, you want to get them away from YouTube and to your site. The best way to do this is with something they can’t receive on YouTube anyway. They could go watch another video on YouTube—there’s hundreds of billions of videos they can go watch. The fact that they’re watching yours is kind of a big deal in and of itself.
If you’re making a video about guitar riffs, then you can tell people, “Hey check it out. Here’s this cool guitar riff.” Then at the end of your video, you say, “Go to www.toolriffs.com (or whatever it is) to download this riff in PDF.” Very important. When you use the word “download”, it’s like a magic word that triggers something in people’s brain. Whenever I use the word “download” in my email copy, the open rate goes through the roof, and so does the click rate. More opens, more clicks, more money for me.
Now, when visitors get to your site, you want to get them to stay with you. You can do this in a number of ways. What I like to use is a custom plugin that I created called Squeeze Blogs Pro.
This is a little plugin that allows you to take your WordPress site and put a little opt-in box on it, on the sidebars and whatever pages and posts you want. So you can put your video on your page, and then the plugin puts the name and email boxes on the page, too.
Visitors fill in the name and email boxes, and then they go to your thank you page. They become a subscriber, and now you can email them. It’s very easy to do. The Squeeze Blogs Pro plugin allows you to maintain your regular blog content. And it works perfect with YouTube advertising, because you can change the opt-in box based on the video content. You can have all kinds of elements wherever you want them.
I’ve used this to generate hundreds of thousands of leads and make millions of dollars in marketing money, because of the fact that I’m doing this in a really cool way. Just helping people out.
For example, I have a lot of book reviews on my YouTube channel. I have all these videos, and I say, “If you like this video, go to my site to download the mp3, so you can listen to it in your car, on your iPad, on your iPod, when you’re working out, on your phone, whatever. Download the mp3 of this and watch my other book reviews.” Boom. Now I’m generating a list and I can market to them.
This, my friends, is how to get leads from online video in a really simple way. You don’t want to just say, “subscribe” or “opt-in to my newsletter.” Those are weak. They don’t give the person a reason. You have to give them a reason to opt in. Then, when they opt in, give them tons of killer content and sell lots of stuff.
For example, I could take everyone that downloads the mp3s of my videos, and I could sell them a video mp3 converter to do the same thing with other videos. I could get them into a free trial subscription to Audible. I could sell them content, make a membership club, whatever I like.
The sky is the limit. It doesn’t matter what niche you’re in. Just focus on 1) who they are and what they want, 2) creating helpful content and adding value, and 3) leading them to the offer based on your content.

How to Choose a Good Domain Name: Domain Name Generator — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.
Today I’m going to show you how to choose a good domain name.
You might be asking what qualifies me to teach you how to find a domain name. Over the last fifteen years, since the beginning of internet marketing as we know it, I’ve been buying and selling domain names and using domain names for my own sites to profit. Some of them I bought for as little as $15, and turned them into $25,000 without doing
anything but buying the domain, and I got the money on the day of (or a couple days before) it was about to expire. So, this can be profitable and fun.
Let’s talk about you and what kind of domain you’re going to use for your business, your idea, your blog, or whatever it is that you’re looking to put on the web.
Step One: Why Are You Creating Your Website in the First Place?
This is very important. Why are you creating this website? Is it for existing customers, or is it for new ones? Do you want to send existing customers to your site or do you want to gain new customers? The domain advice that I give you for each of these will be different.
If you’re going after existing customers, you would want something that’s easy to remember, and something that says your business name in the actual domain.
For example, if your domain name is BuffManJim.com, you would want BuckManJim.com as well, in case people misspell your domain name.
If you’re looking to gain new customers, you’d want to use the Google AdWords Keyword Planner, and then try to find the keyword that best fits what your site is going to be about.
For example, if you have a gym and want to promote personal training, you’d want to use the Google Keyword Planner and search for “personal training.” Let’s say the city that you want to target is Los Angeles. You would insert “personal training Los Angeles” into the search field.
Then you would select “get ideas”.
The Google tool tells us that “personal training Los Angeles” has been looked up about 390 times per month. That’s 390 potential customers that you can bring
to your site. So if that’s what you’re looking at doing, it would be best to get a domain like PersonalTrainingLosAngeles.com. If the .com site is taken but the .org is available, you could also get that domain as well.
The great part about this is that you’re targeting a keyword that people look up, and one that’s related to the type of business you’re trying to get.
Step Two: What Traffic Methods Are You Thinking of Using?
Now, you want to decide on what type of traffic method to use. Do you want to run ads on Google paid traffic? Do you want to try to rank for free in the organic (free) search engine listings? Do you want to use social media, such as Facebook? Do you want to use YouTube? Or do you simply want people to type in your domain name in a search field to find our website?
There’s a difference in each of these traffic methods. If you’re going after organic SEO traffic, you want to find a keyword using the Google Keyword Planner that is not competitive, and you want to get a domain name as close to the keyword as possible using .com, .net, or .org. And this will help when you’re trying to get ranked in the free search engine results.
On the other hand, if you’re going for the paid search engine listings, you’d want to have your keyword in the domain. However, it’s not as strict in the sense that you have to have the exact keyword you’re looking for. Imagine what it would look like if you had PersonalTrainingLosAngeles.org right in your domain, along with Personal Training Los Angeles as your title. Now you’re going to get a lot more traffic at a much cheaper price.
If you’re trying to get traffic on social media, make sure the domain is easy to remember, fits what they want, and is something they
can type in very easy. You don’t want something like Los Angeles Personal Trainers Training People Fast. You want something simple and concise. Something people can type in easily.
Step Three: Do You Have a Brand Name You Want to Use?
Do you have a brand name that you want to use? If you do, you need to check to see if it’s available. And is there a trademark already against it? If you own the trademark, you’re good to go. If there’s a trademark against it (which you could find out quite fast using a Google search), then you want to make sure that
you can, in fact, get the domain.
Is it easy to remember? Or is it something that people will forget? You want to make it very easy to remember and see. Did you double-check it to make sure it looks okay? Some domain names look a little different when you break them up, so you want to be careful. You want to double, even triple-check your domain to make sure it’s not something you don’t intend it to be.
Step Four: Can You Use Your Brand or Market with Keywords?
Is there a way to use our brand with keywords? If your brand is Double Time Pizza, you might want to use Double Time Pizza Vacaville, which also includes the keyword “Pizza Vacaville”. And again, you want to make sure that the keyword is in fact searched for using your Google AdWords Keyword tool.
Once know whether or not if you’re going for your direct brand name, and whether or not it fits all the steps above, go ahead and search for it. If it’s available, go ahead and get it. If it’s not available, you might want to go and use keywords or a variation of your brand name as well.
Tips for Getting Your Domain Name
Now, here are some review tips for getting your domain name.
Tip #1: If you’re looking to gain new customers with free traffic, use the Google AdWords tool to find the best keywords with low competition and an available keyword-loaded domain name. The competition can be seen right on the first page of Google. If you type your search in quotes, you’ll see your competition in the results.
Here, there is about 9,400 people, which isn’t that competitive if you’re doing web marketing according to the way that I teach you. And of course, if that domain’s available, grab it as fast as you can.
Tip #2: If you’re going for paid traffic, focus on a short, easy-to-read domain name with the main keywords in the title.
Tip #3: For social media, YouTube, or type-in traffic, make sure your domain is easy to remember and type in. When they can, people will misspell your domain name and type it wrong. Be sure to avoid this. Be sure to avoid that by having a simple domain with the keywords.

Get 1,000 Legitimate Subscribers And 4,000 Hours Watchtime Fast Youtube = Success Or Poverty??? — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.
Today I’m going to show you five easy ways to get subscribers and video views on YouTube, so that you can start getting paid now. We’re talking about making money with the YouTube Partner platform. A lot of people are little freaked out about the ground rules that have been laid out by YouTube, so we’re going to break this down.
4,000 Hours Watched
Let’s say we want to get to 4,000 hours of our content watched, or we want to get 1,000 subscribers. How do we get there? And how much money is at stake in the first place?
First, let’s talk about getting 4,000 hours watched. That’s approximately 260.000 minutes, or about 600 minutes a day. Let’s say our average viewer watches one minute of our video. That would mean we would need 260,000 video views to get 4,000 hours watched. How much money would that be? Some say that YouTubers on the low end make an average or $1 per thousand views. If that’s the case, then you would make $260. Or, if you’re a YouTuber on the high end making $10 per thousand views, that means you’d make $2,600.
Last year I got to 1,000 subscribers on a brand new channel I made about addiction, which is actually a really competitive market. On this channel, we took it from 0 to about 3,000 subscribers and about 250,000 views. We get tons of views everything month, and we’re doing well. But even so, I don’t monetize that using YouTube, and I’ll talk about why.
Now, here’s what you want to do to get those 1,000 subscribers.
1. Refine your market. What are you doing out there? Are you just making funny videos? Are you teaching something? Whatever you’re doing, you have to refine it. Ask yourself: who is your target audience? Are they people that go to work? Are they people that stay home? Do they want to make money? Do they want to learn skateboarding? Are they people that you know want to learn how to knit? Who is your target market?
2. Use a keyword tool to find out what people are searching for. For example, you might want to check out the Google Keyword Tool. You can also use the glossary method. With this, you go to Google, type in whatever your market its, and then add the word “glossary”. This will also show you what people in your market are searching for.
3. Find the top videos. Once you’ve defined your target market, you want to find the top videos in that market. When you search, you’ll find topics related to videos that are getting lots of views. Try to find the videos using keywords that are easy to rank for.
4. Make a list. Now that you see the top videos and their matching keywords, make a list of the videos that you see. This is what is going to drive your audience.
5. Make content based on your list. If you make a list of 30 videos, you now have 30 new topics to make your own content about. Let’s say you find 30 topics from those 30 videos, and you make your own 30 videos over the next 30 days. You’ll gain subscribers and viewers very fast.
You want to watch for videos that have lower competition. Because the lower competition, the better chance you have at standing out, and the more people will watch your videos, and the more they’re going to subscribe, and the more money you’re going to make.
When you upload your videos, make sure your title is patterned after the keywords that are easy to rank for, and patterned after what’s getting a lot of views.
Bonus: 6. Tell visitors to subscribe. In every video that you make, tell your visitors to subscribe, subscribe, subscribe. Ask them why they aren’t subscribed. Tell them why they should subscribe.
If you use this format, it’s going to work extremely well. I use this on my addiction channel, where we go into things like addiction and anxiety, high-functioning alcoholics, all kinds of things. I find ideas for my content just by making lists of videos that people want to see.

Autoresponder Email Sequence For Affiliate Marketers : Email Marketing Made Easy — affiliatemarketingmc at YouTube.com.
Today we’re talking about email autoresponders, and I’m going to show you how to set up an autoresponder series. We’ll be using AWeber for this tutorial, but the process is similar for other autoresponders.
Some Info About Autoresponders
Autoresponders allow you to create automated messages to go out to your mailing list. Every time someone clicks a link in the email, that’s like getting another visitor that already knows who you are. So it’s really, really profitable.
The key to using your autoresponder is to send visitors back to your blog. As these people get to know you, like you, and trust you, through the good content you send, they’re going to be checking out your affiliate offers and buying your stuff.
When you send out messages, you have to think about what your subscribers’ mindset is. You want to talk to them in a very conversational way. Make sure your content is interesting. Keep it very tight-knight, very in the realm of why your subscribers signed up in the first place. Everything you promote should be true.
As you’re thinking of ways to provide value to your subscribers, consider giving out PDFs and downloads. These get big time clicks. There are samples of these in the Simple Sites Course at www.SimpleSitesBonus.com.
Create a Mailing List
Before you can use your autoresponder, you have to receive emails to mail out to.
So, you need a place on your site to collect peoples’ names and emails, also known as a squeeze page. You can see an example of this on my website at www.AffiliateMarketingDude.com.
You can see that the user can put their name and email in the box, and they get whatever it is we promised them. So in this example, we’re promising them a really cool Affiliate Marketing Dude toolbar.
When people enter their name and email into the box, you’ll add those onto a mailing list. Now you’ll know who you’ll be sending your emails out to.
Setting Up Your Autoresponder Series
Now we can create our list of emails that will go out in succession once someone puts in their name and email. They can get a message instantly, the minute they fill it out.
For this tutorial, we’ll be creating messages on AWeber.
On the AWeber platform, we hover your cursor over the “Messages” section in the top navigation bar, and select “Legacy Follow Up Messages”. We’ll arrive at this page.
We’re going to create our emails using the HTML Editor.
Now we’re ready to set up a message. We’ll start with the subject line.
If we want, we can display subscriber info in the subject line. In this case, we want to say our subscriber’s first name.
Then we can type out the rest of our subject content.
This will be the subject of the email.
Now we’ll write the body of the message. We can also add subscriber info in the body. We’ll go ahead and use their first name again.
Once we add the subscriber name, we can type out the body of the message.
Now we’re going to link to the page where our subscribers can download the toolbar. The page is at www.affiliatemarketingdude.com/download.HTML.
This is the page where they can download it:
In our message, we will highlight the phrase that we want to link to, then click on the “link” icon in the navigation bar.
A box will pop up, and we’ll paste our link into the “URL” section.
We’ll know that it works if our text in the email is underlined and linked.
Now we’re going to continue with the rest of our message, adding one more link towards the bottom.
Then I usually include a P.S. I like to include the link in each of my emails, maybe three to five times at the most. That way, I get more chances for people to click on them.
It’s going to drive visitors back to our page.
Then we can put our disclaimers and other things below. I usually put some periods on individual lines to break up the text a little bit.
AWeber will put our automatic footer with our address and everything like that.
(If you’re going to put in your address, I would highly recommend that you get a P.O. box. That way people aren’t writing you at home.)
Once we’re done, we’re going to hit “save and exit”.
Then we arrive at this page. You can see the email we just created at the top of the list as a new draft.
We hover our mouse over the “Send Options” button, and select “Add to Follow Up Series”.
A box pops up with some information about our email message. This tells us that this message is our welcome message. As soon as our subscribers fill out that form, they’re going to get this.
We make sure the box is checked for tracking links, and click on “Add to Follow Up Series”.
When we’re done, we come to this page:
Let’s say we want to go ahead and create another email message. We’ll go back to the HTML Editor page.
Then we enter in our new message exactly as we did before.
You might be wondering why I use the word “download” a lot. That’s because it gets a lot of clicks. The word “download” is like the magic sauce for email marketing.
Then we hit “save and exit”.
Our message shows up as a new draft.
As we did before, we hover your cursor over the “Send Options” button, and click on “Add to Follow Up Series”.
Now a new box will pop up and ask when we want to send the next message out. We’re going to have this email sent out one day after the previous one.
Keep the “track links” option selected and click on “Add to Follow Up Series”. Now, you can see in our follow-up series that we have two messages.
You could do this every day for a year, every week, every two days, whatever you like. The more you email your list, the more money you usually make. Obviously, this is within reason. You don’t want to email them 50 times a day. They’ll get annoyed and unsubscribe. But if it’s information that they really want, you can do this in a really cool way.
The name of the game here is to getting people to come back to your site. Because the more times they visit your site, the more you’re going to make, because they will click on things the more times your ads will be shown to them.
Sending a Broadcast Email
You may decide that you want to send out an email that’s separate from your follow up series. In that case, you can create a broadcast.
Let’s say we want to send this cool thing in a message, right now, to everyone on our list. We can do that. Everyone will still get their regular messages, just like they’re set up, and this one will just go out on top of it.
We hover our cursor back over the “Messages” section in the top navigation bar, and we click on “Broadcasts”.
We arrive at this page.
The steps for creating a broadcast message are the same as they are for creating a follow up message.
Remember, these messages go out while you’re on sleeping, while you’re not working, even while you’re on vacation. They’re out there getting people back to your site and hopefully making you money over and over again.
Focus on taking a conversational style, helping your market out, and driving people back to your site, where your content and offers are going to be. Always provide good content based on why your subscribers filled out the form in the first place. Every piece of content should be geared to lead them to the next step.
In the Simple Sites Big Profits course, I teach a lot of little tips and tricks that I use with email marketing.
These include using custom variables, how to structure messages to get the best click-through, how to bond with your list, how to make money with your list, and more. We’ll go through and check out your messages and see how you’re doing, and we’ll help you get a better click-through rate. You can check out the course at www.SimpleSitesBonus.com.
