This implies that simply having a lead capture program is not enough. RIGHT! Your lead capture program must deliver a message that is amenable to the leads receiving that message, it must capture the pertinent information appropriate for that interest, and provide a segmented message stream to deliver TARGETED messaging to the newly acquired PROSPECT that is appropriate to the topic that interests your PROSPECT.
Decide Your Path is a great traffic exchange but your referrals are simply that. You can send emails to your “downline” from within Decide Your Path, but you need a way to “cultivate” your prospects into being customers. Do that by giving THEM a way, not only to make money through Decide Your Path, but give them information. We are going to capture their name and email address BEFORE they are forwarded to Decide Your Path using what I will call Decide Your Path Funnel. (Decide Your Path Funnel is my own creation, and is not affiliated with Decide Your Path).
What information can you give them, and where do you get it? Stay tuned.
Now You Have These Prospects…
What you do with the prospects you acquire in the first couple days is crucial. You want to tell them about your business. This is not a resume, but simply some information about yourself, your company, and your products. You must make the effort to get people to KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST you, your company, and your products. (If this sounds familiar, the phrase is used over and over again by GVO/Pure Leverage CEO Joel Therien).
This is where I am going to deliver the good news and the bad news.
The bad news first. You need an autoresponder. While there are free options out there, I feel as though I AM TRUSTING MY BUSINESS TO THIS SOFTWARE, and I want the best, most reliable, and most flexible platform. This, unfortunately, does NOT come for FREE. Since there are many different autoresponder systems, I stay within the Top Five: GVO/Pure Leverage, Aweber, TrafficWave, GetResponse, and Global NPN.
The Good News
I do have my favorite autoresponder systems (of which TrafficWave is one). Thanks to a now-defunct program called Your-Profit-Funnel, I have a 154 day autoresponder sequence that I will give you for FREE, but it does require TrafficWave unless you want to manually enter all 75 or so messages into another flavor of autoresponder. The messaging in this autoresponder sequence is FOR and ABOUT Internet Marketing, so if your target audience is something else, you might want to consider another line of messaging that is appropriate to your target market.
Decide Your Path Funnel System and Autoresponder Setup
If you do not have TrafficWave, the good news is that there is a 30 free trial. But better yet, I participate in a program called Matrix Buster that allows ME to pay for your second month, on the condition that YOU will do the same for others. A fantastic downline builder. The monthly cost of TrafficWave is $17.95, but ONE REFERRAL pays for your monthly membership.
But There is More to Setup Than the Autoresponder.
Splash Pages vs Landing Pages. For Traffic Exchanges and Safelists, splash pages are the best because they load quickly, and are succinct and to the point. This may be fine if you are sending to YOUR DOWNLINE, but when sending to safelists and traffic exchanges, the ad recipients are not on YOUR LIST, but on SOMEONE ELSE’S LIST.
The whole idea is to get those leads into YOUR LIST, so I prefer sending my leads to a LANDING PAGE (also called a lead capture page or squeeze page). I want those people on MY LIST right up front. Even if they do not commit to the PRODUCT or back end program, there is a greater chance that they will stay on MY LIST so I can spoon-feed them more information.
Another advantage to using a front-end landing page is that it filters out the spammers and robots. You must set your autoresponder to require opt-in confirmation to effectively filter these out.
In the Promotional Center Section of Decide Your Path, they do have Splash Pages, a Landing Page, and a Custom Splash Page built for you. If you share my opinion that Landing Pages are best, I recommend my Decide Your Path Funnel pages that I will customize for you.
By joining my team at Decide Your Path Funnel, you will get access to six pre-built Landing Pages, and as a bonus, I have included a Landing Page Rotator that displays a different landing page every time that program is accessed. You can use this this rotator as the Target URL for Safelists and Traffic Exchanges, which then collects the name and email information, then exits to the Decide Your Path Landing Page. This sounds confusing, but remember that Decide Your Path is only interested in getting referrals into THEIR system, and if you don’t capture that prospect’s information first, you would lose it if they do not subscribe to Decide Your Path.
I will set up your landing pages, create the TrafficWave campaign, and set up a Landing Page rotator (one URL for all landing pages). I can do this in about 24-48 hours. I will configure the six landing pages and the landing page rotator for you, and host them on MY SITE for $10 per year, including Done-For-You Setup.
If you want only the configuration, and you choose to host on your own hosting account, the cost for setup is only $5 USD. I will provide a zip file containing the configured files that you can upload to your hosting account and expand.
Using the Landing Pages
To use them, you simply promote the URL of the Landing Page Rotator I supply, and your prospects will be prompted for their email and name. Once they opt-in, they will then redirect to YOUR Decide Your Path landing page where they can sign up for Decide Your Path.
Information I Need to Configure Decide Your Path Funnel:
TrafficWave: I need your login ID for TrafficWave, and I recommend change your password to something like GOOFYDOG – then change it back after I get it done.
Other Autoresponder System: You must first set up a campaign in your autoresponder, and provide the HTML Form Code so I can create the landing pages for you. You will have to create your own autoresponder follow-up messages.
Watch the Non-Standard Graphic Sizes
If you look at the Promo materials, a couple comments on ad graphics:
- Beware of the graphic sizes. If you are using safelists or traffic exchanges, there are 3 standard size graphics allowed: DYP has a 468×60 for banner ads, and the 125×125 for Button Ads, but there is no 600×300 for login ads.
- As part of my team, you may use these 600×300 graphics for free:
- If you want to download the 600×300 graphics, Right-click then Save-As to your hard drive (or better yet, to DropBox).
- If you don’t have DropBox, it’s free and has tons of cloud storage so I recommend signing up. Just copy the file to the PUBLIC folder. Find the file, right click, and grab the Public URL, then use that when defining the Banner URL for login ads.
Here are the standard DYP Banners
Ideas to make this an INCOME GENERATING SITE.
- The idea is to get leads FOR YOUR PRIMARY BUSINESS. But what if you don’t have a primary business yet? I’ve been involved with several Multi-Stream Income programs that present your referrals with several low-cost, cash generating programs.
- Joining Seed Programs. When you join one of these “seed programs”, you typically pay $7-10 for membership. The whole idea is to start a small stream of income, so you can invest the commissions into bigger, higher commission programs.
- No Mandatory Participation. I am not in favor of making the seed program memberships mandatory – I’ve been involved with several that never got off the ground.
- Voluntary but Lucrative. If you explain the strategy to your downlines — using seed programs to fund memberships in high commission programs, some will “get it”.
- Team Build/Co-Op. In addition, I would create a “rotator” for all of my downline affiliate’s ID’s, and I would buy SOLO ads as a Team Build. That means that all downline affiliates would have an equal shot at getting traffic. If I set this up as a Co-Op, the individual costs are minimized. I generally pay between $50-$100 for my trusted favorite SOLO sources. So, if we get 10 people in the Co-Op, for $10 each we could get some very good traffic.
- I Would Fund Other Traffic. I would also throw in my own promotion sources – I would include your Landing Page URL in the rotator I send to 15,000 members every 3 days in one source, and in another, I send to 18,000+ every day.
- Safelist Memberships. I own two safelists and a hybrid Safelist/Exchange. These have connections to some great Super Networks and premium SOLO ads on these networks are the lowest allowable cost (I am a partner but have contractual limitations on price).
- TONS of FREE STUFF. eBooks, eCourses, and other programs. Most are free, but if I am required to charge, it would be the minimum allowable price (I license some of these materials).
Recommended Cash-Flow Programs
Joining these programs is entirely voluntary, but integral to beginning to show success in YOUR BUSINESS.
IMPORTANT: If you do NOT have a membership to TrafficWave.net, please sign up HERE
The following programs will start to generate some income. In order for your business to succeed, you must take the commissions earned from each of these programs, and REINVEST THEM back into YOUR BUSINESS. For example, if you get a paid referral to ThisMailer, you take that $79 commission and join/upgrade another program, or purchase a SOLO ad to promote the Your-Profit-Funnel landing page. If your audience is already on your list, use Splash pages (with the rotator).
