Launch, Launch, Launch, Launch

Its 2:04 in the morning right now as I’m writing this.

I’ve just launched a record number of campaigns and ads, I already have positive ROI on some ads I launched earlier today, and I feel delirious from a long day of work but good.

It was just a month ago and one of my biggest campaigns died. A solid 5 figures per month worth of revenue gone, POOF. This industry is constantly changing, the offers come and go, the ad networks change, and advertising that once worked ends up dying out. The only constant you have is YOURSELF. This is why I believe firmly in only one mantra; no matter what:

Launch, Launch, Launch, Launch.

If you are not launching new campaigns, you are not learning; you are not growing. Marketing is a super competitive arena, its constantly changing, and the barriers are extremely low. Investing in yourself, and growing your own base of knowledge is the most powerful thing you can do.

What I love about affiliate marketing is that you directly get rewarded f0r the effort you put into it. If you spend your time on the computer messing around, you get nothing. However if you spend your time constantly launching new ads, new angles, new offers, new traffic sources, you will get massively rewarded.

Many people find it difficult to break into affiliate marketing. I feel this is because it is such a blend of the creative and the technical. Regardless of what other people say, you NEED to know basic programming. You also need to be an outside-the-box thinker to come up with new ad angles and figure out creative ways of reaching your audience. Usually when I see people fail to make it in this industry, it is either because they are unwilling to learn basic programming, design, or to think outside-the-box. Typical symptoms of magic pill syndrome aka shiny object syndrome.

What are you doing today to create more revenues for yourself?

Whenever you launch a new offer, angle, and/or traffic source, you are opening yourself up to acquire more revenues/profits for yourself. Too much of our time (mine especially) is spent wasting time on activities that have a low-correlation with money-creation. Charles Ngo has created an entire company structured around allowing him to launch new campaigns constantly. Hes a great role model to me, and incredibly smart for knowing where the most value is derived. This too is a direction I want to move my organization in.

A few things I’ve done to help assist me in launching more often:

  • always thinking to myself “Is this activity going to help me double my revenues?”
  • keeping a notepad at my desk with 1-2 activities I need to accomplish that day to feel like I am ‘moving the ball forward’. This may mean launching on two new ad networks, launching a new offer/vertical, expanding an existing campaign, etc.

What are some things you do to keep yourself on point, and ensuring that you expand your business?

 

 

One thought on “Launch, Launch, Launch, Launch

    I remember your advice and the instructions you gave in order to stay on point lol. In a more pertinent response to your question I will say that I personally use the MS Program Notepad to create and place two very important files on my desktop in my staying on point. One file is a “to-do” list and the other is a collection of “possible ideas” in which I am giving some thought. I place these two Notepad files next to each other, side by side. One checklist is the actual roll of items/or tasks I have officially decided to implement in needing completed. It lists the correct chronological order of these tasks that are to be taken care of one by one. The other Notepad file is a list of “possible ideas”. This file/list consists of ideas that I am mulling over and/or concepts that I have heard a little about, sparking some interest but that I did not have time to fully investigate. I put the latest versions of each of these saved files smack dab in the middle of my desktop. This simple two step process keeps the tasks I need to perform in my direct scope (and in my face lol) so I finish them one by one … and it also keeps me from forgetting an idea in keeping a separate “possible ideas” list (yes.. both of these lists/files are backed up in a few different places at all times). I know John does some things in similar fashion with the Notepad program but actually this is one personal tradition that I exercised long before I came into contact with him. Speaking of coming into contact with John I will fill everyone in while I’m here. I wrote loads of content for other organizations and for a hand full of my own websites over the years. In addition, I had a very strong IT (information technology) back ground. When I decided to entertain a separate source of income I figured I would have an edge in doing a little online business. Over time (almost exactly seven years to the day ..2006-2013) I finally came to the admitted realization that there was/is an entire separate side in trying to do business online (besides simply the minimal technical knowledge and content creation required). I needed help. Now in looking back, so much of it I wasn’t even aware of and in what I was aware of I needed a little.. to serious help in those areas. To create a solid source of revenue over the Internet requires a unique “craft”, you see. A separate set of skills and special know-how in a field all in itself. No kidding .. it may sound like a gift or special talent and in ways it is BUT success can be attained by any person with diligence and the right plan-of-action). I needed a boost in some areas such as how to market something to MAJOR help in others like advertising and finally getting some significant conversions. I got an inside tip and strong reference to a supposed “expert” with a documented, well proven track record. This person was John (john crestani). A longer story I will make shorter here is that from this reference I ultimately gained the most realistic, straight forward, zero-fluff informative plan to date by our communications. I was introduced to a very concise step-by-step guide to make things work for “me”. I will add that you MUST be willing to give some effort and work the protocol he decides is best for your situation …and do it as the guy determines… At any rate I can attest that John is certainly the “real deal”. Very happy I was finally introduced to him. Thanks again John! … Ian
