Hi, everyone!

It's been a few days since I hit your inbox, but things have been a little crazy around here, nothing bad, well, not too bad, just 'schedule interruptus' sorts of things, so I was forced to prioritize my activities, and the newsletter was beaten out by sleep ;-)

Funny how that happens. Kinda like how chocolate ice cream tends to beat out liver for dessert...

If you have not registered yet...
The Amp Up Your Business Summer Workshops - delayed due to tech gremlin issues - are still open at the extended Early Bird price - all five Workshops for just $17 - and that includes the replays, and transcripts...and some surprise bonuses as promised to make up for the re-scheduling! First Workshop is Monday, August 15th and the price is going up then!

Sorry ya missed this one!
Seriously, we had a really terrific Zoom session today - this was the Workshop for the
recent Entreprenuer's Rocket Fuel Giveaway: The Art of Co-opetition - Making Money WITH Your Competition! My co-host was Ruthie Bowers, but we were also joined by Stephanie Hansen (Wildflower Digitals), Helen Ross (IlovePlanners.com), and Jan Small (simplehappiness.biz), whom we have organized several JVs with now.

This was such fun as we shared why we do JVs with competitors, the value of small JVs versus big bundles and much more.

One of the best things about working with your 'competitors' is that you do not need to explain your business model to them - they understand because they share those same issues and concerns, high points and low points.

If you have never considered a joint venture with someone in your own niche, why not? It's a great way to expand both businesses, share the workload and often times you can make a much bigger 'splash' with a JV launch than you can as a solo.

Don't know how to pick a good JV partner? Find one to four people with products similar and complementary to yours, and reach out! Ask if they would like to work together on a project and take action!

The best partners are those with similar skillsets and experience levels, so you can easily split the workload. Once you get your first project under your belt - assess how well it worked and how much you enjoyed the process!

If it was fun and you met your goals - then do it again! And if not - don't be afraid to say no, and start over with new partners!!

And the replay will be posted Friday at the latest!

And a BIG shout out and thank you to Steph, Jan and Helen who were not actually presenters but were there for support and stepped in to share their thoughts and experiences with us. That is exactly what Co-Opetition is all about.

Just Zooming Here and There....

Traffic, Traffic, Traffic!!

My focus for the next few weeks is back to traffic and SEO, and I have snatched up a couple of very inexpensive list builder software, along with some pricier SEO courses and I will be giving them a thorough workout in the weeks to come.

I have purchased both products below - yes, they are similar but different enough that I thought it was worth the relatively low investment (under $20 each)

In both cases, I only picked up the front-end product - I always figure that if something works really well - it's worth the investment later for the upsells even at the (sometimes) higher price...

And I plan on using them to promote more evergreen types of internet marketing and software products and tools, as opposed to PLR and Low Content products. These are the kinds of tools that are perfect paired with Udimi paid traffic, TikTok, Facebook reels etc.

When I watched the demo video of this one, my first reaction was "OMG!! That is SOOOO COOL!" and then my skeptical side kicked in and said "Um, yeah, that IS cool...but is it legal?"

So, here's the scoop on this: this is one of those programs that lets a person get your list magnet or freebie without having to go through a registration or optin process - but you get their best email address (ie Google or Facebook, etc) thanks to this software's capabilities...

BUT my concern was that it does not specifically state that they are being added to a list and you are going to email them at some future date....

However, it IS legal to email ONE TIME, and if you use this correctly and give the customer the chance to sign up for your newsletter after they have their lead magnet (ie you send them the download link), product or gift, I think there is a much better chance of actually winding up with a legit email address.

This DOES include emailing and an autoresponder system - but I will most likely use my regular ESP for the newsletter subscribers so I am not working on two systems for the newsletter.

Yes, I purchased, and I plan on using this for upcoming bundles, giveaways etc, because I am tired of bounced emails from events! I also have some other traffic ideas in mind and I will be happy to share them as I test them out ;-)

BTW - many of you may not know Ram Rawat, Hyperlist's owner, but he is a Top 5% affiliate on W+, Top 20% Vendor - and has had 4 Deals Of The Day - and a very low refund rate.

Must have been something in the water last month but this is a very similar product to HyperList - one of the big differences though is that this is supposed to be GDPR compliant.

That being said, I picked them both up because I find that you really cannot tell until you put them through their paces, and at $20 apiece, I felt it was worth the investment.

Chances are that I will like one better than the other but there are enough differences that I can see using them both.

The gentleman behind this product is Andrew Darius - he has not launched much at WarriorPlus but he is a well-respected software developer and has been in the IM world for probably 15 years, with multiple 6 figure launches behind him - and he supports his products.
And off to finish prep work for tomorrow's workshop! An Old Bat's work is never done!!
