    After seeing this thread Get Clickbank Sniper Software Exclusive I was interested in actually using my CB account.

    I watched the video about his software and got to thinking about how to start. So I have some questions:

    1. Do most people just do simple 1 page sales letter style pages?

    2. If thats how its done, do you use a specific piece of software that generates these for you? What software?

    3. Does anyone here make good sales pages for a price? Id be willing to pay for a solid sales page based on a CB product I handed someone.

    4. Am I asking the right questions? (serious here)

    5. What type of traffic (source) are you all using to drive traffic, other than organic seo?

    This seems pretty simple. Research a product. Get a domain, site, and some traffic. Hope it converts. Am I right?

    1. Yes

    2. Not really. Just google "minisite" - that what the one-page websites are called.

    3. I'll skip this one.

    4. Yes you are, for a beginner

    5. I'm still trying to figure that out myself :D

    Thanks for the quick response. I am sure I will have more questions as I go.

    Yes. For whatever reason, it seems to work best.

    There are indeed softwares out there that do this for you. You still need a little skill in graphics (or pay someone who does) and you need to know how to use a WYSIWYG editor, but other than that, it can do what you need, mostly.

    I do some page design, but I don't write sales copy. If you had a sales copy, I might be able to cut you a deal.

    Absolutely, but you MUST take action. Asking the right questions and getting the right answers doesn't mean a squirt of piss if you don't act on what you learn.

    It's like me learning what the lottery numbers are going to be. I still need to go buy a ticket.

    You'll get a variety of answers here. I do email, myself, but I know people do SEO, PPC, Social Media marketing, Media buying, and other ways as well.

    Mostly. If you use that software diligently (the one in the thread you mentioned in your OP), you can be further along than just "hoping" it converts. You can hedge your bets a little more.

    Sorry OP for hijacking your thread but I think this will be useful for both of us.

    @OTrap, how if I setup a WordPress blog but use single post at front page and act like a 1 page website to funnel the traffics into the CB product?

    Or, static html single page is still better?

    Thanks.

    Depends. If you're looking for good SEO, Wordpress is typically perceived to be pretty SEO-friendly.

    Ultimately, whichever you are more comfortable with is fine.

    In terms of "how" with Wordpress, I've never done that, so I couldn't tell you.

    Good to hear, and no sweat. Just remember ...

    ... no affiliate marketing business is so big that it couldn't be bigger. ;)

    Glad to see it making a difference. Thanks.

    Kind of. I wouldn't exactly call my affiliate pages sales letters. I've found it's best to leave the selling to actual vendor. A lot of my most successful affiliate pages are just a video showing how to solve a single problem and then referring them to the vendor page for more information.

    It's more of a "proof" page than a sales page or squeeze page. I show them that there absolutely is a solution to their problem. And I try to be very specific. Then usually close with something along the lines of... "I learned this great tip from xxx.com... it's an awesome resource for yyy. If you're at all serious about yyy then click the link below and check out their 17 other tips that are even better than this."

    Ok... that was pretty crappy off the top of my head... but hopefully you get the idea. I want to make it very real and down-to-earth... they'll get plenty of hype on the sales page, I want to be very believable.

    Sometimes Wordpress. Usually my own stuff. I have a page generator I use for some of my simpler site (which most of my affiliate sites are). There are tons of good WP themes and basic templates out there to choose from. Don't overthink it.

    In my opinion it would be a mistake to have a slick affiliate pre-sell page. It's incongruous with the process in the visitor's mind. If you're a vendor then it's a different story... but keep your aff pages very simple. One of my most successful pages ever is the ugliest thing you've ever seen. But people trust it (http://www.get411.com). I haven't touched it in years. I'm almost embarrassed by it. But it works.

    Also, these days I try and use themes that people already trust. For example, I'm experimenting right now with Facebook colors to see what happens. But for such a short transaction I think it's important to be very direct and use any trust leverage you can get.

    Yep. But don't let the various answers get you stuck. Taking action is the key.

    2 years ago all the competition was in paid search so I moved to display and contextual advertising (I'm a big fan of paid traffic). Now all the competition is in SEO (since it's free) and contextual. And, oddly, I'm moving more back into paid search. All the Google restrictions have killed the people who can't add any value to the marketing process. And that's good news for me.

    Contextual and display is still the bulk of my traffic (plus organic SEO... but I put zero energy into that... it just comes with quality, aged sites). But paid search is coming back strong and so is platform advertising (i.e. Facebook, POF, etc.)

    Simple... yes. Easy... no.

    There will be roadblocks along the way. Even successful marketers fail most of the time. If I had to pick one thing that will boost your chances for creating a winning campaign it would be to track the hell out of everything you can. Measure and improve. Measure and improve. It's a winning, scalable formula.

    Hope this helps.
