Shell Shock And Focus

This last week or so, I’ve been suffering increasingly from a lack of focus, and I think I’m actually a bit shell shocked.  😉

I know this has happened to you too because it happens to everybody.

The answer is to take a deep breath and prioritise.  Even that’s not always possible, and sometimes lots of things come to a head all at the same time.  Like this last few days.


#1 – It looks like SmartDD v3 (SDD) is just about ready to be unleashed onto the world.  There’s just the massive task of documentation and re-doing the site.  Oh okay, we have several installers to build too, the free version, the full version, and an upgrade version.

#2 – I’ve just received the latest version of the Instant Survey Script (ISS) – yeah I’ve kept that one fairly quiet, but it rocks.  Easy to install and use, and something everyone with an internet business should have.  It has a couple of nice features in it that lift it above similar scripts and services.  And of course it will be a fraction of the price, especially to you my lovely readers.  😉

I have to install that tonight and give it a whirl.

#3 – I have a new version of AdSpurt (AS) to install with a very nice new feature in that I think is completely unique, but I have been completely wrong before, so we’ll see.  Both David and Paul have worked on this one, and Paul is now looking to see if he can sort out a memory problem on some servers.

When we have that licked we’ll be ready to go.  Again, I’ll install it later today to check it out, then build a new licenced version and send it out to the people who have a test copy.

I won’t be releasing AdSpurt in a nickel sale as I think it’s a little bit special, but I will be doing a discounted pre-launch price, probably $47, but don’t hold me to that.

#4 I have JV Manager 1 installed on my server, but I’m having real problems working out how it works.  I reckon I’m 95% of the way there, and I think it’s just terminology that’s confused me.

If you’re an expert on JV Manager 1 and want to set up a couple of dummy products / sites for me so I can see how it’s done, you can have everything I release for the next 12 months.

And I have some great scripts coming for your internet business…

Project APE.
Site Flow Manager.
CMS Anywhere.

Plus a host of smaller items in between.

So if this appeals to you and you really know what you’re doing with JV Manager, raise a support ticket at:-

addressed to me.  If you have some example sites you’ve put together yourself that I can see just to put my mind at ease, then please include those too.  😉

#5 I have a new JV Manager.  She’s agreed to work for me, and I know she’s a real go-getter, and if anyone can pull in lots of new JV partners, she can.  With a background in sales, I’ve already seen her ability to get people to agree, and that’s one of her real strengths.

We’ll eventually turn her efforts into a product and we’ll be sharing all the little tips and wrinkles she uses to make the sales.  What could be better than an inside look at how to find and convert potential JV partners?

PLR Reports – Strange Complaints

Well, not a great deal of interest in this nickel sale, but personally I think it’s one of the best I’ve done. I think it may be the cut and paste sales copy I’ve used rather than write my own. It’s certainly food for thought.

Lesson for me: Stick with my own sales copy.

When it’s over I’ll be selling the bundle for $47 with a substantially re-designed sales page of my own, and I’ll likely give away my own personal versions of the reports edited to my own style as a bonus for one or more of my other products. Master resale rights PDFs only of course, not PLR.

Lesson for you: Re-use material wherever possible.

Here’s a strange thing. I had two people unsubscribe from my blog notify list and write to me complaining about this sale, but not about what you might expect – it certainly took me by surprise.

The gist of the complaints were that they weren’t impressed that I was selling unrestricted PLR to these reports at such a low price. And that I was giving PLR a bad name.

Well, that’s the point of a 24 hour sale for your subscribers isn’t it? Sell it so cheaply that it’s almost being given away, then afterwards, sell it at a price that reflects its true worth. People like you for it (usually), and will remain subscribers (usually).

PLR material is very valuable if used in the right way, many people just don’t know how to use it though. I guess that’s why those people are complaining about the low price – they know its true worth and feel that I’ve devalued it. Not so. All I’ve done is share something at a low price now that will hopefully bring me in more traffic as the people that use it build their lists and promote my products.

You build your internet business and hopefully I’ll get to build mine too.

Yes I DO know the true value of PLR – I’m a member of 2 monthly PLR sites, and glad of it!

Anyway, last chance at this price. Today at 3.00pm, the sale ends and the price on the bundle of PLR reports goes up to $47.00.

PLR Nickel Sale – 24 Hour Special

In 2-3 hours time at 3.00pm GMT (10.00am EST), I’ll be running a nickel sale for 24 hours only.  After that I’ll take the page down.

Those that want it will have grabbed it by that time.

Actually saying it’s a nickel sale is wrong.  The price is going up by 10 cents with each purchase, so really it’s a dime sale.  The Nickel Script will allow you to set any price increase per sale.

The sale is for a set of new NO RESTRICTIONS PLR (Private Label Rights) reports, all in the Internet Marketing niche.

The NO RESTRICTIONS bit is very important.  Most PLR sales come with restrictions of some kind or another, such as “you can’t sell it on auction sites” or “you must charge a minimum of $17”.

With all of these reports you can do anything you like with them.

My suggestion is you edit them to your own style (you don’t need to do this, but it’s a nice touch), and then use them on giveaway sites to list build with.  Or maybe use them with a traffic exchange, again to list build.  Or even use the 7 Dollar Method of list building.

Or of course, you can sell them in a nickel sale using the Nickel Script.

I want you to build your own list, so that you’ll be able to promote my products, make more money from doing so, and in the final outcome we both win.

I already mentioned it yesterday, but for those that buy, I’ll throw in an extra freebie for you in a few days time in the form of a Windows program that will generate affiliate tools pages for you.

I’ll be using it myself to build pages for all my own products.

If you don’t want to miss out on this, and you want to get it at the lowest price, come back here at 3.00pm GMT (10.00am EST) to get the link for the sale page.

Nickel Sale – 24 Hour Special

Tomorrow, Tuesday 24th June, at 3.00pm GMT (10.00am EST), I’ll be running a nickel sale for 24 hours only.

The sale is for a set of new NO RESTRICTIONS PLR (Private Label Rights) products, all ebooks, all in the Internet Marketing niche.

By no restrictions, I really do mean no restrictions.  Usually with PLR there’s some sort of a restriction on what you can do with the product, for example it might be that you can’t give the product away, or charge less than $47 for it.

With all of these you can do what you like with the products.  I was very tempted to keep my mouth shut, and just put my name on all of them and then use them on giveaway sites to list build with.  Or maybe use them with a traffic exchange to list build.  There are lots of options.

Then I had a better idea.

I decided to let you do it instead.  The way I look at it, if you build your own list, you’ll be in a position to promote my products, make money from doing so, and we both win.

So it makes good business sense for me to pass these onto you and enable you to build your own internet business.

However, this nickel sale will be a little unusual in that I’m only running it for 24 hours, and I’m only selling 100 copies.

So whichever comes first, the sale will be closed.  For those that buy, I’ll throw in an extra freebie for you in a few days time – an affiliate tools page generator which I’m intending to release in another nickel sale next week.

A well known marketer released one of these tools a few weeks ago and I believe he’s charging $67 for it.  You know me, I won’t charge you anywhere near that anyway.  But if you grab this offer you’ll be getting two good deals for the price of one.

Watch this space.
