AFFILIATES - INTRO TO ONLINE MARKETING
There are several ways you can market, promote, publicize, or announce the Metroflex Gym Guide. Some examples include and e-zine, newsletter, your own website, or a blog. Here are some techniques you can use on any of these provided they meet all of the appropriate conditions in the stated policies:
1) Send A Specific E-mail To Your Newsletter/Mailing List
If you have a confirmed "opt-in" (meaning that people have opted in, or given permission to receive e-mail communications from you) mailing/newsletter list, you can send a single e-mail to that list. This is a powerful technique, and your promoting the e-book will be the entire subject of the e-mail. The results can be impressive from this technique, and you are welcome to modify the various e-mail articles included in the Affiliates section on this site. You can even contact me if you need some help customizing your e-mail to make sure that it meets all guidelines as well as entices the reader to visit the website through your Hoplink.
If you do not have an opt-in list yet, you can start building one! Contact me for more ideas at:
2) Using Space In Your Newsletter Or E-Zine For Maximum Effectiveness
If you have a newsletter or e-zine (an electronic magazine), you can do several things to send interested visitors to http://www.metroflexgymtraining.com through your Hoplink:
Insert A Sponsor Ad
Insert A Classified Ad
Insert A Simple Text Link
This can either be the full customized Hoplink you created or it can be a "displayed" link of www.MetroflexGymTraining.com. Just make sure that you follow all policies if you do not want to display your specific Hoplink.
Write Your Own Review & Endorsement
If your readers find you to be credible, you can endorse the e-book and/or write your own review of it. You are welcome to mention the free bonuses which come along with the package (such as how to get in the "Zone" quickly & easily, how to generate free publicity, etc.) as well. Excerpts from the main e-book are available in the Affiliates section.
Write An Endorsement About YOUR Experiences
If you buy the e-book package and make progress with the information, people are going to be definitely interested in what you have to say. You can create your own before/after photos, chronicle your experiences, and even share personal experiences with the non-training portion of the book (such as the sections on goal-setting or being an "ambassador" in your gym).
Put Your Link In A "Signature File"
If you post anywhere, many forums and internet boards discourage blatant advertisements. They may allow you, however, to include a signature file to your e-mails which may have your Hoplink in it. You will have to abide by the rules & policies of each specific blog site, forum, board, etc. It can be a very useful tool since it is unobtrusive.
You may also use all of the same techniques for your website, blogs, forum postings, etc.
For your web page, you may also use any of the Banner Ads, e-book covers, or articles which are available to you in the Affiliates section. You may also click on the links above to access the specific sections.
