Other Scripts Coming In 2008

Posted on by Frank Haywood

Going on from my post yesterday about AdSpurt, I thought I’d mention a couple of other things we’re working on for your internet business.

I don’t want to give the game away entirely, but one is a script that will turn affiliate marketing on its head. I am totally convinced that this product will shake the entire marketing world to its core, and the whole landscape of blog and forum marketing will change forever.

Good or bad? I don’t know. I’ll just be making the gun, other people will be firing it.  (Okay, I’ll fire it a bit too.  More than a bit in fact.)

Here’s a double warning though, just for you, a (hopefully loyal) reader of this blog.

#1 – If you haven’t created your first product yet, just GO and get your act together and get yourself sorted okay?

I don’t care if you don’t know where to start with creating your first product or what it will be about, just get your thinking cap on right now and remember there’s nothing new under the sun.  Just because someone else has already done it doesn’t mean you can’t do it too.

Otherwise we’d have one kind of car, one kind of pen, one kind of shirt and so on… It’s all the different flavours of the world that makes things interesting, so add your own flavour and style to the mix.

#2 – And if you don’t yet have a blog like this one that you post to regularly, GO and sort that out too.

Do NOT be tempted to use Blogger or BlogSpot or any other free blogging service, you WILL regret it. It should be a self-hosted blog (ideally WordPress), and if you don’t know where to start, post a comment here and I’ll put something together for you to show you how to do it, what plugins to use etc.

You’ll see that script in use here on this site within the next month or so.

The second script has been in the making since 2001, and is a full blown Content Management System (CMS) with a difference.

Instead of having loads of crappy little features that no-one but a geek would be interested in, this is written with YOU in mind. It’s been designed for online business owners to run their internet business through.

It’s already in use on several different WORKING sites in test (the site owners don’t realise what they’ve got because they haven’t been told), and I’ll soon be adding it to the Vendiva.com site and using it as the platform to run my own internet business.

So I guarantee you it will be kick-ass when we release it towards the end of the year.

As well as those two major scripts, there are some other nice little projects and products that I’ll be releasing soon too, so keep your eyes peeled.

(The next script released after AdSpurt will likely be the Instant Survey Script.)

  1. “I am totally convinced that this product will shake the entire marketing world to its core, and the whole landscape of blog and forum marketing will change forever.”

    Yes, Frank, but is it any good?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist that! You’re not given to hype so I can only imagine you must have something incredible on your hands to say something like that.

    Looking forward to learning more!

    Sounds interesting…look forward to seeing it.

    Your ‘adspurts’ software sounds a bit like ‘must have ads’?

    I would be interested in some info on setting up a blog in wordpress + add-ons etc.

  3. I don’t know whether to be excited or scared at the thought of this new script, Frank.Change happens all the time but there are usually casualties in its path.

    Will it leave the little guys in the dust if they don’t have it?

    The business-oriented CMS seems an interesting solution instead of hacking WordPress about.

  4. Frank, As ALWAYS, you have a magical way with words, making us practically salivate with anticipation.

    I know that I can’t wait to see the CMS system you have been working on for so long… the internet marketing world has needed such a product for a L-O-N-G time.

    Glad to see that you’re developing it!

    Keep up the great work you do here,

    Amin:

    I felt a little bit trembly when I wrote that, and I nearly took it out. It *does* sound like hype doesn’t it?

    Hype: Blatant or sensational promotion.

    Hmm.

    Whichever way I look at it, I can’t help but think superlatives about this concept.

    It’s a script that every product owner will want to use, and every affiliate will want the product owners to be using. I think that just about covers everybody in my niche.

    I had the idea about 18 months ago around about the same time as AdSpurt, and it was intended to be as part of a larger product, which it will do eventually. (That larger product will also have something complementary to this script which should tie up the loose ends.)

    Then about a month ago, I saw someone else had released something similar, and it sort of crystallised things for me. I wrote to him and said I’d intended to do something similar but bigger, and I also revealed the complementary component to it. So far no reply, and it doesn’t look like there have been many sales as it’s not as intuitive as the script I intend to release.

    It will broaden an affiliates reach and allow them to do things they can’t currently do in the existing paradigm.

    It will allow product owners to reward affiliates just by public discussion.

    For now, I can’t really say more than that without shooting myself in the foot.

    Graham:

    I’ve already sat down and done a couple of general videos towards a complete set on how to set up a WordPress blog from scratch. Unfortunately they only cover buying a domain and creating a cPanel account in WHM…

    I’ll do some more and maybe release them as a freebie for a short time to my blog subscribers or something like that, then put it up for sale.

    It would probably be a good idea as a bonus for AdSpurt wouldn’t it? Hmm.

    Terence:

    Here’s the deal. You be excited, I’ll be scared.

    Any product owner that uses the script will be at a distinct advantage when affiliates are trying to decide which product to promote.

    For instance, if an affiliate were looking at promoting Ticket Desk Pro (TDP) or another help desk, they would want to promote TDP as it would be easier.

    In theory, it should plug into and complement any affiliate scheme. It will definitely work with ClickBank, PayDotCom and the PayPal email address systems like 7DS or RAPS. Or the Nickel Script for that matter.

    It *might* fall foul with systems that allow affiliates to generate their own tracking links, but if it looks like it will, I’ll see if I can’t come up with a workaround for it. In fact I can think of one now.

    I don’t think it will generate casualties, but it will definitely upset some groups of people that want to maintain the status quo. Those that embrace the change will be better off than ever.

    The CMS is really cool. Of course there’s always going to be a learning curve, but we’ll try to keep the release version as simple as possible.

  6. Hey Frank,

    As always, I’m really looking forward to AdSpurt and whatever else you’ve got cooking.

    I’m anxious to see the newest release of Nickel Script as I hope it addresses some of the questions I’ve had before.

    Thanks for creating such cool and useful tools.

    Best Regards,
    Charles

    Hi Frank,

    I would like to set up Blog on my website, I use Hostgator services. Can you suggest what are the plugins can we go for? – Sridhar

  8. Sounds like your extremely busy. Any links to your CMS? I always like to check out new ones. The only one I have liked so far is Symfony.
