Tim Schmidt: Okay can everybody see my screen? You should see the Affiliate U blog if so give me a one real quick. Awesome. Thank you. Cool. Everybody welcome to the October, 3rd 2017 Affiliate U webinar. Again, just to recap this is a training webinar. We’ll go over Q and A. You can ask me anything as it relates to Affiliate marketing and if there’s time you can ask things that have to do with SEO online marketing or just general knowledge about e-commerce and selling on Amazon. Anything that really goes with the digital marketing landscape.
Again, I’d like to welcome all the members that are here that have been with me for a couple of years now. I see a lot of familiar faces. People from as far as Europe, other side of the world. I even see someone from Australia which is very cool. I see a lot of new faces as well. People I’ve been talking to that again perhaps saw an advertisement about Affiliate U. This is the time of the year where we open up, in the fall, the course to people who want to take it. It’s a very important time of the year because as the sale season comes we have things like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, obviously Christmas, Hannukah, everything where people are exchanging gifts and just basically getting together, spreading the holiday cheer if you will.
It’s a good time of year and it’s a great time to be an Affiliate marketer. For the people that are new and maybe just completely, completely clueless as to what Affiliate marketing is. Well, it’s really selling other people’s products. It can be through an Affiliate link, a blog, a website. There’s a lot of different ways you can answer that question but basically, videos work too. There’s really no shortage of how you can do it. You can even be inserting a link on a forum, really slick ways like that. What it allows you to do is to sell a product with a blog just like this one right here where I promote things like SemRush, which is an Affiliate marketing– actually and internet marketing SEO/tool that is really good at identifying people, what they’re doing with their online marketing. There’s a whole video I have right here. It’s Affiliateu/blog. You’ll see the link right here if you ever want to take a look at that. It’s a pretty good overview of why use the tool and what it does.
Again, Affiliate marketing could be done in many ways. I prefer to do it in the first-person blog way. That’s exactly what I teach. If you don’t feel you want to be on camera, put your pictures out there. I teach third-person as well using someone else’s photography or image or likeness and basically just like an author would pen a book under a pen name, it’s the same thing. You could simply do Affiliate marketing however you see fit, however, you choose. There’s a lot of different ways to do it. It’s a very lifestyle. Not to tell you just too much about myself or what I do but I really like to bounce around the world, do different things that as much as my 12-year-old schedule lets me.
This last year I got to do a lot of different things from ice fishing in Minnesota to go to the Caymans, spending a lot of time in Costa Rica, where I used to live, skiing, again fishing, Minnesota for a baseball game. About every other weekend I’m somewhere if I’m able to. It’s pretty cool just being able to work on a laptop or whatever internet connection I have. Recording videos on my phone and posting them later. It’s pretty cool. The coolest thing about this is, I’ve got some students who’ve been working with me for a while. Some people I’m close to, some people I’m closer to. They’re gonna share their stories today about Affiliate marketing and basically some education that they’ve got.
I’m going to open up things with Brandon Sirico, who you may or may not know. If you’re a member you certainly know him. If you’ve been on the outside looking in, and are looking for more information or just learning about Affiliate U, you’ve probably seen his name mentioned in some of the ads or maybe on that sales page. He’s someone that I met through a mutual friend a few years ago in Fort Lauderdale. Our mutual friend does online marketing. He knew Brandon was working in a company that did online marketing. Through that, we met. He wanted to quit his job. We became friends and just through asking a lot of questions and getting a little guidance. He didn’t need a lot. He just needed a little. He rolled up his sleeves and turned basically, in about eight months into a full-time Affiliate marketer. He got to leave the office he was working at where he was doing some finance and some Affiliate kind of stuff. Not really Affiliate but just some kind of tasks that are things that we do daily as Affiliates.
Pretty cool story and he’s probably one of my most successful students. We became friends and are very close. He’s got a lot of cool things going on in his life. Fortunately, I live rather near him so I get to hear about him quite a bit. It’s cool. I also have on Brad Smith who’s an SEO ninja. He recently quit a very large SEO corporation and is now on his own doing agency and Affiliate stuff. He’s a very technical guy I consult quite a bit when I have questions about SEO. Definitely one of the top five people that I look to when I look for technical stuff and basically just guidance on, “Hey what’s your thoughts on this?” If so far you’re liking what you hear and I do appreciate everyone coming. Again, some of you I’ve known a long long time and I know some of you coming from the Amazon world. Some people come from e-commerce. Some people are just simply here probably to show love. I know there are some people that aren’t even in the space of this webinar. I did post it on Facebook wall and I appreciate that. It’s very cool.
I am recording this so if you have to cut out early, it’s fine. I’ll probably upload this to YouTube. Hopefully, it’s generated and I can do that. That’d be very nice. We can reflect on it at any time. Of course, if you have to leave early, ask your questions now. Put them in the chatbox. I’ll probably scroll up here in the back half of the hour and get to every question as I can. For now, I’m going to pass the microphone, virtually I guess, to Brandon. Give me just one moment and I will do that. Again, you can pop in those questions any time you want. I see there’s a lot of them already which is much appreciated. HXHDBXBX has put in a bunch of questions. Definitely, a codename or a very odd name, if you will, but I don’t judge. I answer any questions so it’s all good. Give me one second and I will get Brandon on.
Okay Brandon, introduce yourself. Say, “Hello” if you can. Your screen is now-
Brandon Sirico: Can everybody hear me?
Tim: There you go
Brandon: How’s it going, Tim?
Tim: It’s good man. How’ve you been?
Brandon: Not bad. Not bad. Pretty bad grind but can’t complain especially when you’re doing this. It’s a fun grind.
Tim: Exactly. How’d you make out with the hurricane? I know you lost power for a while and maybe you want to share with people how you grinded out, continuing to make a living on the internet even though you didn’t have the internet at your house.
Brandon: Yes. Sure. I actually got really lucky I think considering what most people had in terms of damage. I lost a couple of trees, lost a fence but my house was intact which is most important. I’m not going to lie at the last minute I made a last minute decision to flee and I left. Thankfully, I was able to head to the DR for a little bit but when I came back I didn’t have any internet connection. I was basically bouncing around trying to find anything that I could in order to get a connection, but smartly enough I knew that all you have to do is work offline as much as you need to. Find a quick internet connection, take about maybe 45 minutes or an hour of your day. Do everything that needs to be done. It’s a full day’s worth of work. That’s kind of how things went for a couple of days but we’re back in normal mode which is nice.
Tim: Cool. Cool. For me it encompassed basically taking a friend– a client to become a friend. He was in Miami, had to get evacuated. He stayed in my house and then the mutual friend that we met through stayed with us too. There’s a little bit of a comedy on this whole webinar. I told my friend that, “Prepare for three or four days of lockdown”. We thought we were going to get a lot worse. We didn’t. He was here for three days. He asked what he could bring. I said, “Bring any rations you’re going to need every day to survive”. I said, “I’ve got a lot of food and water but my son’s here too. I’m going to give him water before you. You’re a grown-ass man. Bring over your own water. Bring what you want to eat. Bring it over. I’m sure I’ve got stuff to feed if a lot of frozen pizzas will make it happen. If we lose power, we’re going to go to the stuff that, you know, isn’t as tasty”.
He brought over a bag of grapes.
Cherries. It was cherries. I take it back. Cherries, pears, half bottle of rum, a small bottle too and some combos.
He’s a big guy so I was actually pretty enthused by what he brought. It was actually hilarious. Again, we’ve done frozen pizzas. I think I gained six or seven pounds throughout the-
Brandon: The good news is you prepare even if others don’t so-
Tim: Exactly. I don’t know. It’s like you’re here to kill the whole village if need be to drown us basically which I wasn’t intending on doing. It’s not a very good idea to drink when you’re in a hurricane, but it happens. Really a good way to stay warm if you lose power. All joking aside, we made it out okay. We lost some landscaping and I can live with that. I’m fine with that. It was just four days of eating very unhealthy, not having access to things that we love and know. But we got through it and we’re all better for it and it sucks seeing the devastation and there’s still debris everywhere but here we are two weeks later. It’s still there. It could’ve been a lot worse. There’s a lot of unfortunate things happening in the world right now but we’re going to hunker down tonight and just talk about online marketing Affiliate .
Brandon: One thing that I want to make clear is that, for me, it really makes you appreciate what you have and it makes you want to earn as much as much money as possible not to go out there and acquire tangibles, but to have that safety net in the event that something tragic does happen like you lose your house or your car gets taken away from some windstorm or it gets smashed by a tree. You can replace those things. As long as you’re making money online and you’re making there’s potential to make a ton of it obviously, that’s why we do this.
Brandon: It was an eye-opening event that’s for sure, at least for me. Anyway, today, I want to talk about just one specific topic and it’s Capitalizing On competitor’s Media Buys.
Tim: One second here before we do that, can everybody see Brandon’s screen? If you are on it just give me a five. Cool. All right. There’s five, so your screen’s there just making sure I hate to get too far before if someone can’t see it.
Brandon: Awesome. Awesome. Yes, today’s topic is, I’m going to try and be as quick as possible but I’m going to cover all the aspects of the topic. It’s Capitalizing On Competitor’s Media Buys. Basically, it’s a way that I go through and determine specifically what competitors are targeting in terms of Media Buys in order to know what I should be targeting organically as an Affiliate .
The first thing that I do is I’m going to use things men buy as the example here. The first thing that I do is I log in to SEMrush so if you don’t have a SEMrush account, I think that Tim, he might have a link on the blog or somewhere or in the members area for SEMrush. You need to get this because it’s it’s crucial. It works wonderful too for most things. There are other tools obviously, but you need this for this specific task.
All you’re going to do is enter your domain here in the in the domain overview. Head on down to the main organic competitors section. I’m going to click on this. What I do, I’ve already done it here, but what I generally do is I export the data here which I’ve already done. When you click export you can export a CSV. I’ve already done it so I’m going to just head on over to the export that I already exported.
This basically, shows all of the domains that are your competitors those that buy ads, those who buy AdWords ads and those that do not. The first thing you want to do is you want to eliminate those that don’t. The reason you want to do that is because we’re focused here on trying to determine what keywords people are actually spending money on. The reason they’re spending money on is because they want to rank for it quickly and if they want to rank for it quickly my philosophy is that they probably make money from that keyword.
I can’t guarantee that they do but it’s closer than just ranking for a random keyword and possibly I guess not getting any benefit from that. What I do is I filter out all the non-ad buying domains. Then it’s already filtered by, let’s see here, I’m going to go ahead and sort this by common keywords. From there, what I do is I highlight domains that I think are relevant to or that are similar to the topics that I’m working with. In this case, it’s things men buy.
I’m going to just go ahead and go through some of these domains. I don’t know what mankind is. It sounds like it could possibly be relevant. Game room guys, definitely. I’m not going to do ask them because it’s too large of a topic. I’m going to do cool things actually. This is enough just to get the the topic going in to use that as an example. I’ll have a blog post of this in super detail of everything that I do eventually.
Once I’ve got these highlighted what I do is I do a– I’ll start with game room guys actually. I typically, sorry, let’s see here. I typically do a control+F to try and find the domain and then I click right here if you– I don’t know if you can see on the screen, it’s a little dark but this last column is ads keywords. These are the keywords that this particular domain is bidding on. I’m going to click on that and it’s going to show me all the paid search positions. From here, what I do is — we’ve already got Golden Tee in here that we’re already covering on men buy.
What I do is I run through some of these keywords and I try and just determine whether or not this is something that’s applicable to the site or something that I’d like to rank for. For example, if we’re trying to rank for Golden Tee it would also make sense for us to try and rank for bubble-hockey. Let’s take a look at Bubble Hockey real fast. Okay, it’s just a bunch of Bubble Hockey games. Decent price here, if they have an Affiliate program you can make some decent coin off that if it’s a $1,000 or more on buy. Let me see here.
Another term is a stick a ping-pong table. I know that this is a big product and– yes, it’s about $700. Anyway, what I do is I go through all these domains that I’ve highlighted here or I would go through all these domains that have highlighted here. I would determine specifically whether or not there is a term that is in position number one which to me is most important is volume over 500 which means it gets decent enough volume for you don’t want to try and rank organically for it and has a less than a million search results. The reason I like to stay under a million is because it’s easier to rank. In my personal opinion, it’s easier to rank for a term when there’s less results.
I would even try and go for something as low as 5,000 if it exists I think it’s incredible. This right here tornado foosball table 114,000, number two 2,900 searches. I would probably try and rank that. Anyway, the objective here is just to basically find products or find keywords that are associated with Affiliate products or products that you can potentially become an Affiliate of.
At this point, you’ve got a bunch of products that you know somebody else is buying ad space for. It only makes sense that they sell these products. From there you basically have a few choices. You can do a search online once you find or found a product like whatever Big Buck Hunter or Stern Pinball or the terms that we were looking at before. You can either search online and do searches to see if the site that this particular site gameroomguys even though it’s a competitor to see if they have an Affiliate program.
If they do you can sign up maybe send them some traffic. Its a competitor and they sell and they have a shopping cart there and it’s all set up and all you need to do is send them traffic so be it. Send them some traffic. The other thing you can do is you can search the internet for the manufacturers or the suppliers of the product. That’s probably the route that I would take to see if they have their own Affiliate program. That’s the best way I would say to do it.
The third way that you could do it is you can ask the manufacturer if they’re willing to drop ship, in which case, if you really wanted to sell this on your own and you wanted to price things out on your own you could probably add a shop to the site. If we wanted to sell things on Things Men Buy we can easily add a shop and collect payments on our own. It’s another added level of work but it’s something that we could possibly do.
It sounds like a lot of work and it’s really not because most of this entire not the entire process but most of this process even down to emailing these different manufacturers and Affiliate companies or, sorry, Affiliate programs you can literally outsource a lot of this stuff to a VA. But that’s about it. That’s how I capitalize on what competitors are bidding on because at the end of the day, my philosophy is if somebody else is paying for ad space to rank for that specific term, then there’s got to be money there and especially if they’re trying to rank for it for a long period of time. Most people aren’t going to just go ahead and take an ad out and buy it on terms that they can’t monetize, based on what I know.
Tim: I agree, I mean if someone’s advertising under term, the only thing to watch out for is if they are the actual manufacturer of the product. They’ve got a lot more room to work with. Let me just boil that down a little bit. We own a skin care company, and we can afford to spend a lot more to acquire a customer because let’s face it, if they buy one product, we have over 40 other ones. We can cross-sell them, we can email them, we can recommend to them.
The lifetime value of the customer is worth more. If you’re an Affiliate , it might not be as much. Brandon, if I’m not mistaken, you’re talking about stuff to rank for inside of Google. Like keywords to target that. You know that they’ll buy exactly. You’re going to rank organically for them and try to catch that traffic, forever.
Brandon: Exactly. This is all SEO and link-building based, sniping off of the money that they’re spending. It’s just doing a simple analysis to determine what they’re spending money on but I agree with you a 100%. For example, if Golden Tee is bidding on Golden Tee, that’s because they’re Golden Tee. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re selling thousands of Golden Tee machines.
Tim: Yes, let’s talk to it. Something I analyzed about nine years ago when we started our skin care company. We started looking around, and people said, “Oh my God. Why would you get into that?” That beauty is so hard. It’s so impossible to try to do anything in that space. You’ve got big companies like Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, La Prairie, you name it. You could go on and on and on. However, to me, it’s almost like if there’s a huge slice of pie out there, that means there’s just more. If you can grab a half or a 0.001% of a multi-billion dollar industry, and just be somebody there, that is probably pretty good living.
It’s not like you’re out there fighting for something that’s non-existent. There’s some niches where if you got a sale a month, it’s a lot of money. Then, I know that sounds discouraging. It sucks not seeing sales come in but again, it’s almost like risk-reward. Yes, you’re competing against a lot of big players, if you’re getting into something like anti-aging products or electronic cigarettes. Two huge niches or web hosting reviews even. But, also know that the rewards there. You don’t have to be the biggest monster out there.
If you get into the shoe industry and you’re trying to start a company, you can’t expect to be Nike and Reebok overnight. You got to work your way up and be Vans or someone like that. That’s a huge company too. You got to be pretty happy with getting a small slice of something big. I do recommend if people are getting into Affiliate , and not to go on a tangent here. If you’re getting into Affiliate , find something that’s not very competitive to sink your teeth into. Wet your beak a little bit. See some success, both organic traffic-wise and conversion-wise before you step into something bigger.
I know, I did that and it only led to bigger and bigger things. You need to go up some confidence because if you’re in a big, big niche, you might not make a sale for a while because it’s just that much harder to gain traction, become an authority, and get rankings. All things, again, that we teach in over 80 videos inside Affiliate U. If you’re not a member these are things that you’re not just left to figure out but things that we actually have in-depth video recordings on. Is that the end of your presentation Brandon? Is there anything else you wanted to conclude with? I didn’t want to cut you off there.
Brandon: No worries. No worries. Yes. I’d like to just add that this is just one of the many ways that you can try and determine what you need to rank for or what you could possibly rank for. There’s so many different ways that we teach in the course that I’ve picked up on and that so many others have picked up on but this is just one that I that I’m using now, that seems to be working for me.
Tim: Well, that’s definitely cool. I know a lot of people just go and use keyword planning tools. They may be used like ATRAC or Samurai or something but this- Looking at paid traffic is certainly something that will yield long-term results. Again, like Brandon said, if people are buying traffic, there’s a reason for it. They’re not just wasting money. There might be a small percentage doing that but like he said, if you see people repeatedly do it over a long period of time, you can bet they know what they’re doing.
Brandon: Sounds good.
Tim: Brandon. I appreciate you coming on, man. Especially, on short notice. Everybody put a big 10 in the chat box if you think Brandon did something cool there.
Brandon: Like I said, I’ll end up having a blog post with specific details on how to do all this at some point in time. It’s probably going to be more beneficial than the actual video.
Tim: Yes, definitely, we’ll have that on the Facebook group. That’s awesome. A lot of tenants coming in. I know people get a lot of value from that. Thanks again, Brandon. I am going to go ahead. Before I give a little training on my own, I will pass it over to Brad Smith, if he’s on. Let me just find him. See, he’s not showing up right now. He said he was going to make it.
Brad Smith: Hey, what’s up guys? Can you hear me?
Tim: There he is. Let’s make you– You’re ready to be presented or you still have that porn up?
Brad: It’s down now. I’m ready.
Tim: Okay, good. I know, last time– well, no, I’m just kidding. I’m just like to know if people are ready before I just throw their computer monitor out there. You never know if he was out shopping for something for his fiancee or something like that. Alright, Brad. Welcome, everybody. Brad Smith has been a friend and colleague of mine for a while now. Brad is the first internet marketer ever to pick me up out on the blue with a Facebook message saying, “Hey, I see we live by each other. We’re both in a similar SEO group called OMG. Can I take you to lunch sometime?”
I was, like, “Wow. Either, one, the guy wants to go on a date with me. That’s just his way of hitting on me or he’s just really forward-thinking and wants to network.” I’m all about networking. I think if you follow my friend Steve Nudelberg’s advice- he’s a friend of mine. I lived next door to him for a while in Weston Florida. He’s just wrote a book. Actually, very, very, very good read. I encourage you to read it. It’s simple. You can get through it in a night or two. My 12-year-old’s reading it. It’s a very cool to follow up book. Confessions of a Serial Salesman. I’m not trying to sell it on this webinar but I read it and liked it and was so easy to read. It’s awesome but the main takeaway, it’s in this book.
He told me this years and years ago, “Networking is only one letter away from not working.” That’s a pretty cool thing. He told me that, “Everyone around you should know exactly what you do.” Meaning, your next-door neighbors, the guy who mows your lawn. Everybody. I’m not saying go and tell them your niche because I know all of us here are kind of private with our niches sometimes. But people don’t know what you do, they can’t ask you questions. They can’t possibly give you a referral. Everyone who knows you should know exactly what you do and how you can help them. It’s a pretty good thing. Brad reached out to me a couple years ago already. He wanted to meet and we did.
I think he said something, like, “I thought you wouldn’t be the biggest douche ever.”
Brad: That– [chuckles].
Tim: Right? We became friends pretty much instantly. I don’t like that I’d be a douche but I guess he’s a typical internet marketing person. You judge people a lot before you meet them but we became friends. Luckily, he lives in the county. We get together frequently, and here we are today. He’s going to show us something. Brad, we’ve got high hopes for you. You’re the SEO guru among my circle of friends that I hang out with last. The floor is yours. I guess you got the screen already. Welcome, and thanks for coming up.
Brad: I appreciate the intro. Can you guys see my screen?
Tim: Yes, they can. I see someone already commenting on a keyword shitter.
Brad: Awesome. I’m just going to peg you back onto the theme that Brandon uncovered, and delve into where it was identifying high-buyer intent terms. At the surface level, that’s a nice little trick or hack to figure out what people are spending in the media space, because when you focus on the SEO, like you said, a lot of people don’t even care to look at what they’re doing on the page aspect or page side of their business. The trick that he showed was actually pretty cool. I don’t know, a lot of guys are doing that but they should.
Now, to go even further, some of those paid keywords and a lot of the stuff that’s going to show up in their tools might be heavily competitive and more difficult to rank. In terms of SEO and take longer. However, those terms are going to be the goldmine. That’s really the end goal. You can start working towards that end goal but you need to achieve a few other smaller goals and get some traffic and ranking in between that time of sustain revenues or even build up revenues, and most importantly, build up traffic and trust for your website in Google’s eyes.
Once you have that traffic, the trust starts to build. Then your overall authority starts to build as you do more SEO optimizations, and both on-page and off-page, towards the domain. If I were you, and this is what I’m going to do to my sites tomorrow, just because the trick Brandon showed. I’m going to go in and use his little technique there. Then, go in and start identifying core themes, like he showed. Then, from there, I’m going to take it a step further and, actually, go in to a few different tools. I may have shown this before but this is another little way to use it. This is one of my favorites. It’s Keyword Shitter. Slightly inappropriate name, depending on how you’re viewing it. However, it’s the simplest tool but it’s the most effective in my eyes. If we just go off a theme of a random article on, “Things men buy”. I was looking at this. I think they have a recent post of DJ speakers somewhere. Yes. DJ speakers here. Let’s say, we identified this using Brandon’s trick. DJ speakers, we know that’s essentially the end goal here. We type in DJ speakers. What Keyword Shitter will do, basically, pun intended shit out a bunch of different keyword terms that are longer-tail and could potentially have the higher opportunity to convert. With this higher opportunity to convert terms, even though they have lower search volumes, they still may produce the same or better results for you.
What I found, and I’m sure Tim and Brady can attest to this too, is they’re a lot easier to rank for. When you start not only building your money pages or your supporting content on your site and publishing it, you’re not only building it for visits but you’re also building it to theme your overall website for Google. You’re trying to show Google you are the dominant authority that has all the information about all these different combination phrases of DJ speakers. DJ speaker uses the end goal at 22,000 a month, in terms of search volume. What about DJ speakers Guitar Center at 90 searches? I don’t remember when they’re this low. This is a real, real rough estimate here.
What you can do is start building out your content and start targeting this term as your first step towards your main goal of DJ speakers. Once you hit that, you’re going to start to gain traffic. Once your site is starting to gain traffic, and you’re able to have a relatively low bounce rate, so you’re providing value basically. Well, you basically want to show Google that you’re providing value. Once you can prove to Google, through traffic in a low bounce rate that you’re providing value to their users, they’re going to start to develop a lot of trust for your website.
Once they start developing the trust, that’s when you start to get looked at in a different light, in terms of the Google’s robot’s size. When you have that trust, you can build up your overall authority. That’s personally when I’ve started to see a lot of ranking increases or it’s easier just for me to push up for certain keywords I try to target. When I start an Affiliate campaign, instead of going for, DJ speakers, I always go for the long-tail terms first. Then, they eventually build up and allow me even the opportunity, the remote opportunity to rank for such a huge massive term like this.
We all know that there’s major, major companies out here. Fortune 500 brands trying to rank for DJ speakers. That’s how I approach it. That’s another addition and twist on to Brandon’s model. Forming the content is also what Tim teaches in the course too. We all know content is extremely important. This is a strategic way to go at it where you know you’re in a profitable niche because one, they’re spending money. Two, you’re building your overall theme towards your overall goal, that main money keyword with the first intent of getting that traffic to your site.
I promise you, once traffic starts hitting your site, and you had that low bounce rate, and you show the robot that Google is, that you’re providing value, your site’s going to be looked at in a more favorable light. That’s how I’ve been seeing some wins, as of recent.
Tim: Very cool. That’s awesome. How many of these words that you’re pulling up, are you trying to get on your page? Is there a number of them or you kind of pick ones that you think best fit your content or is there any insight you have on that?
Brad: Yes. I’m glad you asked. It’s very much a manual process from here. It’s what I do, is I copy and paste everything into an Excel spreadsheet. Then, I separate it, sort it by the monthly search volume. Then, I start going down from there. I start building out silos to the parent category of DJ speakers. The silos, the top silo will be DJ speakers. It’ll be the category. Then, it’ll be DJ speakers for rent, DJ speakers with stand, DJ speaker set, et cetera underneath it. All those subpages are going to link back to the main top silo, with DJ speakers. That’s just building a huge, huge funnel of trust.
Tim: That’s awesome. That’s definitely the way to do it as far as everything that I’ve seen and learned. That’s awesome. Cool. Well, that’s badass, man. Does anyone have any questions for Brad on this? I should have done that with Brandon as well but you can also do that at the end after I give my little insight on what I’ve been doing lately and some things. I guess since Brad’s here, go ahead. Brad, I think you’re a panelist. You should go see these. Yes, go ahead and attack those. There’s a couple in there if you can see it.
Brad: I cannot see it. I’m looking at [crosstalk].
Tim: [inaudible 00:35:19] asking. “When you use the Keyword Shitter, it doesn’t give me search volumes, and I don’t see an option for it. Please advise”.
Tim: I’ve seen a lot of people are saying good things about this obviously, but a lot of people are saying the same thing. Then someone also asked, “Where does this data come from? Is that Google data, like Adwords or-”
Brad: Good question. I don’t know but I know it helps me jog the memory. This monthly search volume aligns with keyword tool BIO, which is another service that I use, in terms of content generation and ideation. I don’t really care where the data for it comes from, as long as– It’s more important to me, as long as it’s uncovering top of the different topical themes that I wouldn’t have thought out before because I’m not going to be an expert. Not going to be experts in every Affiliate niche that we run into, trust me.
There’s some really weird Affiliate niches out there that make bank online and can produce a ton of revenue each month and you’re just– There’s no possible way to be an expert at all of them. The tools like these, with even relative numbers, give you, directionally what type of themes mean most to that specific target audience.
Tim: Cool. Hey, Brad, if you don’t mind, just share 30 seconds to a minute of knowledge here. I’ve got a delivery at my door of, “Things Men buy review” that’s coming up soon that I have to sign for.
Brad: Absolutely. Well, here’s another tool that I also use for ideation. This will give you topical themes, which is great. Then, the goal from there is to identify a topical theme. Once you identify a topical theme, you really want to continue to drill down. You’re really looking for these long-tailed golden nuggets that one, have a high opportunity to convert. Two, have a little bit of searchline because remember, the main goal is to get a little bit of traffic to your site to show Google that you are or are providing value to their users.
Another angle for this is, there’s going to be a lot of people searching for DJ speakers but there’s also going to be a lot of people, like myself, which maybe says or who maybe he’s going to ask Google and type into Google, “What are the best DJ speaker covers?” Or, “What’s the most convenient DJ speaker cabinet?” Or, “Cooles DJ speaker cabinet.” Things like that. Moving laterally, we want to think about question-related terms. The tool that I like to use for ideation as well for these question-related themes and terms is called answerthepublic.com.
AnswerThePublic has been around for a while. What we’re going to do is I’m going to show you– Let’s just put DJ speaker sets because that’s one that we found in the Keyword Shitter tool. Then, AnswerThePublic is basically going to go down. They’re going to break it into question-related terms. How, or, will, can, where, which. Let’s click on “which” and see what they– It might be my java scripts turned off. Okay. You can scroll down and you can see, based on the keyword, they’ll be certain– There’ll be different numbers here, which the tool pulls back. DJ speaker sets. The tool isn’t pulling it back a lot.
However, if you go to alphabetical and you scroll down and click on this, it’ll show you some different terms. DJ speaker setup, home DJ speaker setup. DJ speaker setup was a term that we didn’t talk about yet. Remember, I typed in DJ speaker sets. Here’s another– I don’t want to say rabbit hole but here’s another topic to look at, a longer-tail keyword term, to look at, to see if it makes sense to develop some supporting content around the link back to that main hub, DJ, DJ set, DJ speaker page.
Powered speaker DJ set. It’s showing zero but you never know if it gets any searches. Again, this is directional at best when it’s this low. Four speaker DJ set, you can do three speaker DJ sets. DJ speaker set with sub-woofer. This is what I do when I’m really starting to identify and break into a niche here. Brandon, is this stuff that you do too? Am I hitting on some of the strategies that you take because I know you’re the content king?
Brandon: Honestly, I’ve never used the AnswerThePublic and I’m definitely going to start using it though.
Brad: Yes, there’s-
Brandon: One thing, can you touch up on whether or not you’re using some sort of Chrome App in order to get the keyword volume?
Brad: If you download this plug-in extension, then you’re going to start getting those keyword search volumes in the Shitter here. Whoever asked that question before, I apologize. I totally forgot about it. Yes, it’s keywordtool.io extension. It’s a Chrome extension. You put it in and not only will it give you the search volumes in this Keyword Shitter tool, it’ll also– Look at this, DJ speakers-JBL. That’s a brand name that you can just throw immediately to Amazon and be good at 320 searches a month.
Tim: [inaudible 00:41:36] made in a chat box, Brad, that put your tip with the Keyword Shitter. To get the volumes you need to have free Chrome extension. I don’t know if this means it’s called, keywords everywhere.
Tim: Is that? That’s true.
Brad: That’s true. Whoever said that, thank you.
Tim: Yes. Paul, thank you.
Brad: Yes, we just covered that. Yes. Not only will you get it in Keyword Shitter but you also get it in Google. If you type in, “DJ speakers”, and then you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll get it right here as well, yes. DJ speakers, Bluetooth, an AD, DJ speakers-JBL. This just came up in the Keyword Shitter as well. Powered DJ speakers. Literally, the opportunities are endless. Again, the goal is to start ranking for these longer-tail terms that are easier to rank for and require less time, less money, less effort, less resources.
Gain some traffic, develop trust with Google. Then, once those pages have traffic and trust, you’re going to do the internal linking and all the other SEO optimizations, and really build the topical authority of your domain which is going to make Google love you.
Tim: Cool. I think that’s a really good segue into what I’m going to be talking about if that’s a good place to stop, Brad.
Brad: Yes. Absolutely.
Tim: Okay. Cool. Well, thanks, Brad. We’re going to give Brad a big thank you. We’re already getting him. Thank you very much for that. That’s pretty cool stuff right there. You can never have too many options as far as finding keywords and finding just little things to rank for. If you have questions that come up on this, you get a lot of thank-yous here. Please ask them. Put them in the chat box. Hold them toward the end. I’m going to give a brief training out, just some things that I’ve seen lately. Things that I’ve gone over with for, the better part of the year, with some of my private mentoring students.
It’s something that– Again, that if I work with you one-on-one, that’s different. This is something you can take my advice on tonight, and go ahead and run with. I’ll take the screen back over. Let me know if you guys can see my screen. Just give me a one.
Participant: I can see.
Tim: Okay. Cool. Here, we are on my screen. All right. There’s something that I’ve been writing a blog post about to shore up exactly what I’m going to talk about, and what I am going to get into today. Again, if you’ve worked with me one-on-one, recently, I’ve been teaching this and really diving into the specifics on this. It’s basically what I have dubbed, cornerstone content. What I mean by this is, I’ve really looked at SEO in a different way recently. I looked at it like this- I used to, for years, look at SEO and be like, okay. Well, my site is thingsmenbuy.com. I have all these pages on the site and all these different categories.
I’ve got all these categories right here. Everything from electronic cigarettes, to clothing, to hobbies, to technology, to grill supplies, travel, health, finance, you name it. Every one of those pages needs a link or two. I would take all my link-building efforts and put 20%, 30%, 40% towards the home page because that looks natural at an SEO’s eyes. I would take the rest and be, like, “Okay. I haven’t hit that page yet. Let me send a link to it” -whether it’s a outsourced guest post or a PBN or maybe from a press release whatever it is, a blog comment, any link, you name it. I don’t care what kind it is. I’ve tried to say, I need to link to that page because it needs a little power.
Well, it’s really the wrong way to think about things. The more I have dug into this and really link-built and just built my Affiliate sites over time. The reason I say this is because it’s almost like I’ve learned how to work smarter instead of working harder over the years. The idea behind that is exactly what I’m telling you right now and that’s cornerstone content. What I mean by this is this. When you look at a site and you say, “What is this site known for?” There’s going to be a few pieces of content that made it go viral. I don’t know the exact turning point. There is probably a point in time where TMZ put out some poor tech content that just rocked the world.
It might have been a scandal. It might have been them with some video footage. There was a something on their site that got them out there and it turned into a TMZ is just like a little hat blog. It turned him into something legit where people go to. It was something that went viral. I don’t know what it was. I might never know what it was. That doesn’t matter. The fact of the matter is there was some content that got links, likes, shares, comments, et cetera. That’s what happened.
When I started thinking about that, I really said, “What I need to do is go out here and make some content that is just game-changing. Stuff that I can eloquently write about, be knowledgeable about, and I personally experienced, so I can be the best out there on the web.” Steve Graham, I see you up there on the webbie. Thanks for coming in all the way from Nicaragua. Steve, I’ve known a long time. He owned a very popular American restaurant in Costa Rica. I was there every Sunday and most Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Thursdays. Tuesday’s for lunch. Best American food in the area we lived in called Escazu.
Steve, you’re going to appreciate this. You’ve probably seen this in the training if you’ve gone through the videos and you’re in the course. There’s something about living in Costa Rica. It’s a very wild, different lifestyle down there, but a topic that- I spelled I wrong too. A topic that I learned about and can write eloquently about because basically when you’re in Costa Rica and you’re a single man, your life is a bachelor’s party. Let’s face it. It’s a bizarre world. It’s just different. You get 12-year-olds that give you bedroom eyes.
It’s just a different area. I’m not saying that’s right. I don’t mean it at all. If you have sex with a minor in Costa Rica, you’re going to jail and you’re going for a long time. Please, don’t take that the wrong way. It’s just a different area down there. Things happen in Costa Rica that just can’t be explained. I could do a whole webinar on it but I won’t. One thing that I wrote about is bachelor parties in Costa Rica. If you look, I’m number one. This is the most accessed page on thingsmenbuy.com. I didn’t do it because I make money on this page, which I am starting to now.
I have a line with some properties that are renting out space for bachelor parties in Jaco Beach, which you can see this guy’s advertising right behind me. Basically, I’ve experienced this lifestyle. I’ve seen so many bachelor parties go through there. I used to sell land in Costa Rica and give tours. Basically, over the time, we get a reputation of showing people how to party and enjoy the Central Valley and the beaches in a way that just can’t be enjoyed other than maybe in Las Vegas, here in the States.
Overtime of being the entertainment director of this company, I was rolling around with an Amex and real estate investors, and a driver. I’m a driver and entertaining. It turned into a whole bachelor party lifestyle because it’s like I said, things are just different down there. A lot of the people down there think you’re going to take them back to the United States, and they’re going to be rich and all this stuff, which is totally wrong. It happens. It’s just a weird perception in a weird, weird place where Gringo’s just control the land. It’s very weird.
What I did is I wrote about all my experiences about living in the Central Valley, things that you can do, that you just couldn’t see or do in the United States. For example, when’s the last time you went to a rain forest, did a zip-line ATV tour, went deep-sea fishing, golfed among crocodiles, and then, at night went and gambled at the casino? It just doesn’t happen in the States. There’s nowhere you could do that. Not anybody in the United States. You just can’t. I wrote about all these things and there’s another debauchery as well. It’s just a place where anything goes. Yes, sure, there’s the shady guys on the corner, they’ll try to sell you viagra.
My point is, this is like a 4000-word coaxed. Again, I lived there for several years off and on for I think, eight. I learned this. I knew how things work down there. I said, “You know what? A bachelor party in Costa Rica is something men. Again, the topic of my site, things men buy, you want to know about it. Again, I’m not really selling anything on this page, at the moment but this became my number one access piece of content on the site because it’s cornerstone content. Now, when you write something that is head and shoulders better, more intriguing, more thoughtful, more thought-provoking, and I’ll tell you, I’m not tooting my own horn, I get LinkedIn messages. Do you guys see LinkedIn anywhere beyond the site? I don’t. I don’t. My Twitter, which is not linked here. This is a different Twitter. These are things on my bi-Twitter. My personal Twitter, people find it and say, “That is the most amazing thing you’ve written about Costa Rica. You helped me so much. You gave me the perfect road map of what to do.” I get this weekly. It’s pretty crazy that that happened. Naturally, as an SEO, it’s very natural that this piece of content is liked, shared, reviewed, commented on and distributed by email amongst a lot of people.
What I do on this page to maximize the value of my site is link to pages that are very important to me. You guys know, if you’ve seen this and you’ve been a long time student, you know I started the blog basically for promoting Under Armour. I have a “what to bring to Cost Rica. One of the things that work out here, not because I know you’re going to go down there and bench press all week, but because it’s hot at the beach, so I wear Under Armour stuff. It’s just comfortable.
Visit this page to get a coupon for that brand. Perfect. When all these links come in to this exact page, it strengthens the crap out of this page, but not only that. Any page I link to gets strengthened as well. I just put this link up for Undercover Condoms and it’s my second most accessed affiliate link. It’s crazy. It’s just crazy. You guys can click on that on your own time. It’s hilarious, but it made sense to put it on this page because, let’s face it, a lot of guys that go down there for a bachelor party are with single friends and they might hook up. It’s like what happens in Vegas stays in Costa Rica, unless you come back with a disease, so make sure you bring those condoms.
Again, I’m not here to offend anyone or say anything or promote any kind of lifestyle, but this is content that for whatever way, I wrote and it’s better than anyone else’s on the internet. You can put in this search string many different ways, you can put in all those, you can put in Jaco beach. You can substitute that. You can put in these keywords. I dare you to try it. I’m ranked for all of them on the first page. It’s just crazy.
I also talk about how the Hooters restaurants down there are pretty good. They did a very good job in that country. They’re most beautiful Hooters restaurants I’ve ever seen, so I linked to the Hooters page. We just pop it up. This one here, packing lite, travel stuff. The main point of this is not that I wrote the best guide out there, but now it makes sense that sites in Costa Rica are linking to me saying, “Man, this guy knows what he’s talking about. That’s a damn good report.” Anyone following me here and liking this? Give me one reach out, just a quick one. Steve, I knew you’d like that. Steve gave me a big laugh out loud. [laughs] I knew you’d appreciate that content.
Look at this here. Seven referring domains, actually 54 backlinks to this page alone. That’s pretty good because I think I’ve bought maybe three of that. This is a PBN, you can tell. The Bellview House, I actually own that, so I recognize it. The costaricanews.com, okay, that’s one. Costa Rica Traveler, that’s just coming from a lot of different pages, a blogspot that we post to automatically. We’re getting a lot of different things here, but the most important thing is that Costa Rica sites are starting to link to me. That’s very cool and it’s very humbling that they would say my guide is the one to listen to.
Again, what you want to do is something that I’m really drilling this down with everyone I work with one on one and everyone that’s out there, just following the course. Cornerstone content, something that you can do on your site and whether you know about it and could just do off the cuff like I did here or something that you can research yourself and write better than anyone else. Maybe it’s because you add this little guide. I think it’s pretty cool that look, let’s face it, not a lot of people have been to Costa Rica many times. What to bring?
That’s just a nice little guide that some people are going to follow and some people are going to be like, “Wow.” It’s your smartphone. You can get access to a phone. I use AT&T and I don’t miss a beat. Some people don’t know that. They have that question. I could continue on that whole tangent and talk about how your cell phone works there if you activate this or this, if you have this company. What happens if you lose your passport in Costa Rica? Who to call if you’re in trouble? I can give you some names, actually. You know what I mean? I could go as far as I want. Look it has been shared a bunch of times. I don’t know how accurate this is, but 119 Facebook shares is pretty damn good.
That’s one example of just something I did on my site better than anyone else and it’s made this site elevate and it’s my most accessed content on this site. I didn’t really want it to be, but again when you write 4,000 words on a topic that you know a lot about, you can do it eloquently, with cool pictures and stuff, it’s going to get some likes, it’s going to get some traffic, it’s going to get some shares.
Another example that I did and this one I honestly did not know about, even though I do listen to rap and hip hop and I should’ve known this, I had to look it up. There’s that song Rack City by Tyga and I was like, “What is Rack City?” I looked it up and I rewrote it, guess what? I’m on the first page. This gets traffic, you guys. Again, is it making me money? No, but guess what? I put a couple of links to other pages on my site and the whole thing is with SEO you want to get people accessing your site and going to multiple pages, basically keeping them on your site and not bouncing. When your bounce rate’s high, it means they saw your content and they went, “Uh, you know what? Not, great bad. See you.” You don’t want that to happen.
You want them to read your content and naturally flow to another page. I talked about a full break down and how to do a bachelor party in Las Vegas and linked to it right here. That’s the next page I’m really going to focus on and make really good because there’s some really good stuff you can affiliate with in Vegas. vegas.com gives you show tickets, hotel reservations I can make money on, all sorts of stuff.
When I complete that guide which is next, that’ll be another piece of cornerstone content. Again, you don’t have to go out and link to every single page on your site, although it’s nice. If it happens organically, even better, but if you got a couple of big pages, it just makes sense. When Google looks at this site and says, “Damn, there’s a lot of shares and likes on that Costa Rica bachelor party page. Why is that?” It’s because Tim did a damn good job of writing it, that’s why and it makes sense.
You got to think about your content that way. I don’t care if you’re trying to do electronic cigarette reviews or concrete mixer reviews. Whatever that is, you need to be out there and do something different and be better than the next guy. This isn’t a great one, but it’s good enough to be on the front page. Okay?
Brad: There’s a lot of traffic. It’s getting traffic and that’s the key.
Tim: Exactly and getting traffic and keep it on your site entertaining people is sometimes half the battle.
Brad: There’s so many different extensions that you can do with that Costa Rica page too just because you offer so much value upfront. You’re already gaining the person’s trust who’s reading it. You can create an opt-in that just pops up and, “Hey. Want my exclusive go-to guides or best products to get for before bachelor party?” and collect their emails, sell them some Amazon affiliate stuff on the bag that they’re going to enjoy down in Costa Rica.
Tim: Absolutely. Thanks for bringing that up. This is a site that I could literally put in 10, 12 hours a day on and make it just the most powerful thing in the world. I think it’s doing pretty good considering it gets a little bit of attention from me, but not a ton. It’s more of an example/training site, but it’s making money. It’s making over a couple thousand dollars a month, just my dumb luck. I’m really pushing the envelope. I’ve set some high goes for it because again I like to practice what I preach.
You can see here over the summer when I was in just the heated, heated moments and negotiations of getting divorced, which was just ugly. I don’t wish anyone that. You could see there wasn’t a lot of attention here. Now it’s done and guess what? I’ve put some effort into it and I know a lot of you guys are contributing content to this site for pay, of course. If you’re an affiliate U I give plenty of opportunities to make your tuition back working whether it’s content, just odd jobs I offer up all the time in the Facebook groups. Pay attention if you’re in there. I know you do.
If you’re not an affiliate at U, support@affiliateu, I’ll answer any question you got at the end of the webinar via email, of course in the Q&A here. I’m not here to sell the course, but there’s a lot of people who saw the ads and jumped in tonight’s webinar and are seeing the replay. If you do have questions, I’m all for them. Again I give my students the first opportunity before I take them public whether it’s my own Facebook page or going to upwork.com, hitting op my outsourcers, I make them available to people in affiliate U. Why is that? Because I know you trained up on the videos and the way I like to do things and the way I like to think.
After you’ve watched the whole course, you’re trained up and you’ve got a nice education. I like to think it’s a Harvard style education. Some people might say, “Yale”, but let’s just call it Ivy League, all right? Anyways, a lot of you are writing for the site and I got big aspirations to grow this site. There’s a lot of topics we can see right here. I’ve outlined content for the rest of the year. Actually, not December yet, but you can see October here and I’ve got people that put their name here and they’re writing these topics. November is almost full as well. I’m planning out December’s content, probably this week.
Again, it’s pretty cool when you map things out like this. This is a whole different video I’ll do later, how you map out content, talk about where to interlink it to and then keywords to include just to get some LSI in there, which is keywords that are closely related to the keyword you’re looking for. My point is a lot of stupid things you can rank for that will bring traffic to your site and get your eyes on your brand.
I have a friend that- I’ll tell the story because it’s really funny. I have a friend named Tom Linnemann. He’s one of my best friends. He’s an internet legend because he– Actually hold on. [unintelligible 00:59:45] whole name here. He worked as a buyer at Target and he was out all the time entertaining people. He’s a guy that– Here we go. Who’s John Chartman on Twitter. He’s a guy out there that entertains a lot of people. He’s a party animal. He’s an-ex quarterback. This is a leader and a hilarious guy over all. I’ve known her for over 20 years. I’m going to Vegas with him this weekend. He’s just one of those guys that is hilarious. You can see. Look at him tweeting five minutes ago, 18 minutes ago, 26 minutes ago. He’s an animal on Twitter. His name is Tom Linnemann. When he was working at Target, they asked him to get off Twitter. He was tweeting too much and his personal life got intertwined with corporate guy. They asked him to get off her. He’s like, “I’m not getting off”. He’s addicted to Twitter and he knows I say this about him, and it’s fine.
He just tweets too much. His fact his tombstone would read, “He’d have a great life if he wasn’t too busy tweeting about it, he’d remember more of it or you enjoy it more.” The guy is on Twitter as John Sharkman. Why? Well, because he went to St. John’s University with me, and he loved it, and he loved sharks. He came back two parts. He deleted his account as Tom Lineman. He came back as John Sharkman. He’s just this mysterious guy who tweets all the time. Naturally, people are looking for him and saying, “Who is he?” Look at this. Here’s his real name. Here’s his wife. Here’s his Instagram. Kim’s is the company he used to work at.
You can see this. There’s all these results. Guess what? I’m number one that brings traffic and it’s the stupidest thing in the world. He’s a friend of mine. I went to college with. One of my best friends. Again, people are curious. I’m the only one out there with the answer of, “Who is he?” There’s all sorts of crazy ways you can get people in your site. I teach all those inside the course. I invite you to try them. I think cornerstone content had hammered pretty hard. Basically, I’ll close on the fact that if you’ve got a topic that you want to be better than everyone else out there for it, figure out ways to do it.
It could be more content. You can be answering questions they don’t answer. It could also be providing some media that keeps them on your page, laughing, interacting, encouraging them to share. There’s all sorts of ways you could do that, and keep people engaged. Keep people learning and keep people happy. Basically, what you have to do is on any of these things. I did this too. When I did this post, right here, I studied this page on a flight. I digested everything. These are ads so I’ll throw them out the window.
Hokku VIP is a company that’s been around for a while. They’ve got a nice little following. They’re there. I’m right behind them, depending on when this updates, I can be in front of them, it depends if you’re plural on the front of them. It rotates all the time. The point is, read all these and do it better. I’d like to get something like that, may be. We both make that happen. A video would be very nice. I haven’t been to the country for a year and a half. I used to live there. I used to go every month. I’m a single father now. It’s hard to get away for that stuff. I got to pick and choose my battles.
Anyways, do it better than everyone else. Give them a reason that’s something different from the other reviews that are out there. That’s basically what cornerstone content is and why I’ve been using it. Better media, better content. You can use those pages to really hammer with links. It’s natural to get a lot of links to a great page. It’s not natural to get a lot of links to a crappy page.
When you’re doing content, ask yourself, “How good is my content? Is there a lot of images in there? Are there a lot of videos in there? Would it be something that would be shared? Do you like it? Would you like it, personally? If you got to that page, would you say, “Wow. Great content, Tim, thank you. Appreciate that. Can I ask you some further questions?” Or would you just look at it and be, like, “There’s probably better out there.” Every time you finish content, ask yourself that. That’s basically my lesson for tonight.
What I’m going to do is have you the other panelists on as well. I’m going to open this up to QA. I’m first going to scroll back to the beginning. There are some questions asked in the beginning. I know some of you have left. Many of you stayed to the end. Thank you very, very much for that. I’m just going to start at the beginning. Brad and Brandon, I’m going to askk you to chime in on some of these. Let me just start at the beginning. “Hey, Tim. Can you please randomly choose five affiliate websites and review them along in the webinar, so we can learn what is good or what to avoid?”
Sure. I can’t do five just because of time constraints. We’re already over the hour. I did say I’d stay as late as we need to, to answer questions because again, we missed a webinar, last month, because of our dear friend, Irma, the hurricane that came through and ruined everything for us. What I’m going to do is type in a niche I know pretty well- eye cream reviews.
Brad: This is pretty good stuff, reviewing your affiliate websites. Usually, people don’t want to give away their niches.
Tim: Yes. Well, I mean I may cook on one of mine or I may not. I know all these sites. They’re some of our competitors. Eye cream reviews is a very, very tough turn. These are all real authority sites. I wish I rank for that. I think I come on page two. Total beauty. Allure. Reviews.com, just a beast of an affiliate. He’s good. Vogue. Elle Those are all tough sites. Consumer search. I’m going to find one that’s a real affiliate site, someone like you and I. Fashion Spots. Yes and no. An affiliate. That’s a middle ground one. Beautypedia, same thing.
I’m going to try to find one that’s an obvious affiliate site. Someone who’s out there, slapping affiliate links up, trying to make money. Skincare.com is owned by Estee Lauder, so that’s not a good one. Thedermareview. These guys own a brand but they operate just like affiliates. Eye cream reviews, what are they doing right? What are they doing wrong? What to avoid? The first thing they’re doing is they’re pretty basic on their content. Now that can be good, that can be bad. Having a really beautiful pretty website doesn’t always mean high conversions.
Sometimes, people see that as a paid advertisement. Sometimes, people like that ghetto, ma and pa look and feel blog because they think it’s more genuine. That works in a lot of niches. You can test and you can tinker with both and see what happens. This is pretty decent, although they’ve got one image here. Doesn’t really captivate me that much. You’re scrolling down. They don’t really talk about anything other than dermatology, which they’re obviously trying to sell.
My tip, my cap to these guys because they’re doing a pretty good job of ranking. Not a lot of engaging stuff. Here, there’s no comments. Probably because they’re not getting traffic for this very much. You know what? I lied. I’ll do two of them. Brad, why don’t you fire off a keyword maybe that you think will trigger some review sites.
Brad: Let’s do best anti-aging serum for women over 40.
Tim: Love the long tail keyword.
Brad: I like the long tails because the smart marketers are going after these. You can find some guys and reverse engineer what they’re doing.
Tim: A 100%. I’m still seeing a lot of authority sites on page one. FoxNews- That’s obviously not affiliate. This niche’s gotten so hard with authority sites coming up. Let’s see here. You know what I’m going to do? I’m just going to totally flip the switch here.
Brad: Something a little bit easier?
Tim: Well, something that I know that we can not find so many authority sites.
Tim: Cheapest website host in the USA. This will all be affiliates because I’m in this space too. HostingAdvice.com. Good. This guy I’ve seen around. Right away I get here. The first thing that jumps out of me is, I’m overwhelmed with stuff. I don’t know exactly what to do when I get to this site. Sometimes, that’s good and sometimes bad to me. It looks very professional, nice clean logo. Uses colors that he doesn’t use anywhere else on the site for his call to actions as well. That’s very key. Something I’ll just take away from this, if you’re doing a call to action like a “Visit site” or a “Click here, get started”, use a color that does not appear anywhere else on your site. Why? It stands out with a sore thumb.
If you’ve got a site- if this is black or white or gray, I’m not even seeing it. My eyes aren’t drawn to it. I get here and I’m looking for a cheap host, like say I’m a tech guy at AT&T, and they’re like, “Hey, we just put up a new billboard. We need to a new hosting company to host “GetAT&TNow.com” Our billboard’s in South Florida. Host that website. We don’t want on the same servers as other stuff find a cheap host. The guy goes for new looks and gets to this site. What does he do? He takes the first recommendation because his boss wants it up in an hour.
Without even reading the review about iPage, he sees it five stars. He see’s it’s number one rated. He clicks visit site. Why? Because his eyes went right there. He didn’t look around and like, “What the hell? What do I do?” He clicked on that and he went to the site. He’s doing that right. That’s great. He gives you some valid talking points right here. He’s got his link to the reviews right here. That’s solid. Now, what is he doing wrong? Again, inside affiliate, we’ve got many examples where he breakdown sites and talk about them.
What is he doing wrong? He’s got all these features here. He has nothing that’s really saying they do this and no one else does. There’s really nothing that stands out. He’s got this guy’s review here. That’s decent. It’s okay. He’s doing a lot of good things. He’s not really highlighting his blog very well, like, his hosting how-to’s are good but those are probably built to just rank from those exact pages.
Brad: I’ve seen conversions increase actually when I added of a list of cons to the pros next to it because people are looking for different things. They have different needs. Only putting a list of pros is screaming, “Hey, I’m biased”.
Tim: That’s a very, very good point because, exactly. You can’t just land products down their throat. Now, even in my Under Armour review, which I point out in the course, I have on site that Under Armour is very expensive. It’s not for everybody. They can’t give it away in third-world countries because the price point is too high. It’s great stuff but let’s face it. T-shirt I’m wearing right now is a Mohammad Ali one. It was like $34 for a t-shirt. that’s crazy. Just because they worked with his camp to make that happen. This one here, this guy sends you right down. Makes you scroll a little bit. I don’t like scrolling that much. There’s two thought processes to it though, if you’re scrolling down here you’re keeping people on the site longer. if you just put a buy button here like our last guy had, your bounce rate is going to be high but clearly it’s not that high because he’s got a value on the site, a number of assets and he’s on page one. I think he’s number one so that’s very good. Also here he’s not using the call to action. Color just here, he’s got it right here, that could be different, this here should be a different color.
Brad: Everything seems to match together in this one.
Tim: It does. Like even Bluehost, these should be logos I think because I can’t differentiate Hostgator, Hostinger, I’ve never even heard of Hostinger. Bluehost, InMotion. Those should be highlighted differently so they’re separated so it’s clear to people.
Brad: Yes, and with the scrolling here, as you mentioned, it’s giving me a headache even on this site. In serving a chart or something that you can see above the fold which means basically on the screen that you’re looking at it says, number one recommendation is Bluehost, number two recommendation iPage and then you have Xs of what they have and what they don’t offer. That chat feature is the key to success in some of these especially when you’re going after terms like best hosting reviews or what is the best host for a small business. Things like that because I want a quick comparison. At the end of the day, a business owner in a niche doesn’t care about hosting or doesn’t know about load times, they just want, this one has more green checkboxes and more pros than this other one.
Brandon: Very good, one thing that the last guy did do that I liked was he uses some plug-in of some sort in order to populate today’s date as being as if he updated today. If you go back to the site it shows John Steven October 3rd, 2017 so it looks like it’s fresh versus stale. It’s been sitting around for a year, it’s not the most current content I don’t know.
Brad: Yes, it’s cool.
Tim: Yes, this is my website, I’m in this space. I’m not a player or anything, I don’t pay a lot of attention. I pick off some traffic, make a few sales a month. I think my sales were actually up earlier in the webinar when I flip screens, I made a couple sales a month. It used to be a lot more but I got hit, but apparently then I didn’t pay attention to go back. I did try something recently. I used to have a big table here. People got to the site, they click on a review or they click on the buy button and get off my site. I found my bounce rate went way down and people might stay longer and I went like this. I said, “Hey, since 2002 I’ve been working on the internet.” I don’t even know if that makes sense really but basically just click here and learn more about me and then here oh boy.
That’s why the sales aren’t rolling in like they used to, there we go, never mind. This could be better, it’s a work in progress. If you’re in the master’s program and you’ve followed me along, I’ve made a lot of switches with this and I’m doing different things but you can see I send them to this page where it talks about two companies and basically rates them. Again, a lot of affiliate marketing is testing, and I’m doing a lot of testing with this site. I’m actually redoing the entire site soon but I’ve so many other things in my plate, just taking this for what it is.
So, I think we’ve gone over some pros and cons again, we didn’t do five, sorry about that HXHD VXBXB. I appreciate the question and love the name. Moving on to the next one, also by the same HXHD about creating content for affiliate website, is it an issue to hire and what topic to write so we can monetize it better? Is it an issue who to hire? No, you can hire whoever you want just make sure they do a good job. That’s my take. I’ve stuck with a few people for a while I write a lot of my own content.
Most of my content is outsourced and then once it indexes is in Google and when I say indexes, it’s showing up page five or better usually, it’s where I’m like, “Okay, if it’s a good keyword it’s on page five I will go in and personally optimize it to go into page two and then until the twists are pounding in the links. That’s just what I do. Your strategy might be different but again I’ll put up filler content, let it marinate and then come back in once I see it’s getting indexed a little bit. You can find that easily with Sun Rush
Again, affiliatemarketing/blog you’ll see my Sun Rush review, why it’s such a cool tool but you can basically type in your website here and it’ll show you where every thing exist. Now it’s not up to the minute, this might be yesterday’s ranking but it’s very close. The point being, they’re not going to say you’re 30 if you’re 95. It’s always going to be within a few spots unless there’s a big update and they just didn’t spot it or something but it’s a very good thing. It also gives you estimates on where your traffic is coming from. DudeIWantThat is a huge site and I’m getting some of their traffic which is cool.
Let’s see here as I’m scrolling for more content, more questions. Okay, another question is two times daily posted needed for sites? It’s not. I encourage you to post to your websites as much as possible but is it humanly possible to do it every single day, twice a day? No, it’s not. There might be days I do three updates on my site, it might be weeks when I don’t update anything. It depends on what you’re trying to do. If you have the daily dose of information on something, you should update daily, but if you’re an authority and you’re just looking to put out reviews and be a voice, your mileage may vary. Again, it’s all niche specific too.
If you’re in a niche where everyone’s is updating daily and reacting to stories, I’ll tell you it’s well known that as being in electronic cigarettes in the past is a big niche. The people were killing it including myself back in 2010-11, I was updating a couple of times a day reacting to everything the FDA put out. Every new product brand, I was reviewing stuff. You got an update even more so now with your content. You’ve got to be out there fighting fire with gasoline really.
Brandon, maybe you can share another one. I know you’re probably the biggest content guy I know out there, definitely the biggest mass producer of content and I affiliate U by a country mile so Brandon, how often do you update your sites and you echo what I say it depends on the niche on what you’re trying to do?
Brandon: If I’m not doing it daily then I’m deathly ill. Sometimes I update three or four times a day depending on the site just because I know it works.
Tim: Yes, it really does.
Brandon: You have to crush content in some niches you just have to if you want to compete.
Tim: Go ahead, Brad.
Brad: That might seem like a lot but if you’re pulling in a lot of money, trust me you’re going to want to be updating three to four times a day if the niche warrants it.
Tim: Here is the thing, if I’m in a space where let’s just say it’s hosting reviews. if I’m in a space and I know the front space is dominated by guys that are making tens of thousands a month and they’ve got hundreds of pages, I can’t just stand pat with 15, 25 pages. I got to catch up to them. Also if I see them ramping up their content, I know that they are there to defend their turf. They’re kind holding their territory. I see it in a lot of different niches where people get complacent and guess what, people catch up to them.
Again the answer to that question is it varies but its niche specific. If you’re competing with people that update a lot, you’re going to have to update more and if they’re not updating much well, consider that your opportunity to move in.
Okay, another one, if daily posting is needed, is it better to post 4 times a week 1,000 word post or 7 times 550 word post just trying to get it all done? Yes, I totally understand that and that’s a good question. It’s all about quality. If you just puke out 500 words a day to get it done and you’re just not interested in it, you’re better off not even doing it. I’d rather you write one or two posts a week that are a thousand or 1500 words just killing it. Doing awesome content great job on it and being proud of it. Again, cornerstone content. We can go out there and review your product or put a message out there, better than the rest of the people out there, do it and be happy with it. Don’t just write 500 hundred words because you said, “I did my content today. Great. I’m done.”
I see that happen so many times. Spend the time to do it. Don’t just puke it out and be like, “I’ve done 500 words or I did 350 words. Quality or is it going to be quantity? Because again, are people going to like, comment, review, share your product? Are they going to do that to your content? If that answer is no if you’re even waffling about that answer, just know that you could have done it better. Spend time on it.
What I do, I have been thinking about doing a video for this for a long time. I actually did it once and I was recording it with my face on it and someone walked in my office and I’m not a good video editor so I canned it but I wrote content, I pasted into my WordPress site and I played the Jeopardy music in the background and I said here is how long it takes me to rewrite an article but I copied and pasted. I basically what I do is I put it below. So I copy content and I’m logged into a site, I’ll basically put my content on top of it, I look at it.
I’m very good at using synonyms and keywords and rearranging sentences very quick. It’s become an art form for me and I was timing myself to do it.
If you put a one in the chat box I think that’ll be a cool idea for me to do just post on YouTube or blast on the internet somewhere because I think that a nice little task that I want to do and I like it. There was one time I wrote a 500-word article on a topic I’ve written over a thousand times. I wrote in four and a half minutes and I think I had 15 spelling errors where I just had to go back right click and they’re fixed but it was hard to find the best wrinkle cream. That’s back when you could write an article on any article submission site like Ezine Articles or puzzle.com or article dashboard and those links were as valuable as anything. They would rank your site as long as you could prompt articles and put links in there you were good and it was basically who could write articles faster. Then people made robots that did that for you so that was the name of the game and that’s why I was doing that but I’ll do that exercise in Cisco fun.
Brad: It’s actually pretty incredible. Sometimes Tim, and I, and Brandon will get together and get lunch or something and start talking about a niche idea, a new keyword we brought up and we order. Maybe it’s a drink maybe we’re at a bar, a cigar bar and you see Tim just his fingers start flying on the keyboard, bangs out like 750-word article before the bartender can even get the drink back. It’s incredible.
Tim: It’s true. It’s true. Yes. I’ve actually had a key pop off the keyboard in the office in Costa Rica back in the day. It was pretty classic. Popped off, and I’d replace it with like a way overpriced computer I got from Price Smart, I think it’s called down there. That’s pretty funny. All right. Let me keep firing those questions here. Is there a minimum number of affiliate products and reviews or promotions you should have on a niche site or an ideal number?
Again that’s niche specific. Hosting I’m going to be fighting a big battle. Electronic cigarettes, any big niche as many as you can possibly do. But I’ll leave it on this, I’ll just short answer here. If you’re in a niche where you review three products and you’re like screw all the rest of them. There’s three products out there that just crush. Make sure your reviews are again cornerstone content, the best stuff you can put on paper. Write it once, go over it again, go over it again, go over it again, and make sure it’s perfect. You guys have anything to add to that?
Brad: One thing I’d like to add is if you’re in a niche and you get lazy and you’re only promoting one product like that one skin care article, I think dermareview. All it was was linking to advanced dermatology that’s easy. That’s easy. That’s easy again to just for a reader to pick out to say like, “Hey, these people are just clearly selling a product. The one goal is adding value. Your users know, they don’t trust you or they get any whiff of like you’re not being genuine which you should be being genuine, they’re just going to balance and then that’s a signal to Google that they’re not getting value from your site. It’s downhill from there.
Brandon: Yes. I constantly update my pages too, especially the money pages. How many times Tim, am I going back and forth with you saying oh we should do this, this, and this or what do you think about this, this, and this for updating pages? Even down to just colors or highlighting things and adding, maybe even if it’s only about 100 words to a page, it all adds up and it does make a huge difference I think, eventually.
Tim: Another one, Tim I’m getting discouraged I’ve been working almost full-time for eight months and spent thousands and made less than $200. What am I doing wrong? That’s just a lot of different variables there. It could be the niche maybe the products you’re reviewing aren’t having a huge stickiness rate where people buy them online. For some niches that just don’t work and again you don’t really know until you try. There’s been a lot of niches I failed at but there’s been some I’ve crushed. You got to really analyze it and say are people buying this online? Am I promoting the right offers?
Is the offer I’m promoting cost-effective for people? Can people see my review go somewhere else pick a cookie, if you don’t know what a cookie is, it’s basically the tag that comes with your affiliate link in your site that gets you that commission. You want to get that cookie. They might be picking up that cookie somewhere else.
Brad: You are not alone. You’re definitely not alone. Before I got this to work I spent thousands as well. That was many, many years ago I spent thousands trying to figure it out. I would suggest that you revisit your keyword research look at some of those longer easier to rank keyword terms that have a higher tendency to work but if you’re getting-
Tim: Not only that. Without knowing exactly where you stand on your keywords that’s also hard to put in if you don’t have any SEO traffic. I’ve got someone who I’m mentoring right now. Who’s in a very very tough niche he’s having a hard time being to page one. Page two and beyond is where Google goes to bury dead bodies. You’re just not going to make sales there. You need to be on page one. If you’re not there or at least on Bing and Yahoo which still is 21% of traffic or something like that, you’re not going to make any sales. Make sure you’re there and you can start expecting some conversions but if you’re not there then you really shouldn’t expect much how much unless you’re getting some crazy referral traffic from somewhere or some stuff from social which I do teach as well in the course. There is a lot of different variables but the best thing I can tell you just again this is in the course but for you guys who are on the webinar because you saw an advertisement or just all my friends are joining, the best ways you could sell product is for ranking something, but have the keywords in front of it buy, order or purchase.
Let me say it again. If you’re going to sell someone something would you like them to get to your site if they typed in buy iPhone 8, purchase iPhone 8, order iPhone 8? Yes. That’s a lot better than the guy who types an iPhone eight. He may be looking at the features. He might want to know what kind of camera is on that phone. If someone types in buy iPhone 8, they want to buy it. If they type in buy iPhone 8, overnight delivery, North Carolina. You know damn well they want that phone and they wanted overnight they want it shipped to North Carolina.
Those are people you want on your site. Optimize for those kind of keywords if there’s a buy, in front of it. Another thing is, where to buy, where to buy. What I tell people and this is just the best. Where to buy iPhone 8, and iPhone is probably a bad one. Let’s just say where to buy Under Armour clothes. The first thing you want to say is don’t buy it on a retail store. Well, why do we tell people that? Because us, meaning everybody on this webinar, does not earn a commission if they buy at the retail store.
Where to buy Under Armour, well, the best places to buy is on their official website. Here’s six reasons why, one you’re dealing direct with the company, no middleman like Foot Locker, Macy’s, whatever it is. Number two I’ve got a great coupon code for you, it’s right below, click that link enter that code boom bam you’re out. That’s your coupon. Number three, the convenience of having an online order history portal let’s track to you as a customer where you can see your history of buying from Under Armour. I can go on and on and on, so just talking people into the whole process. Well, then tell them where to buy.
They might be in Iowa and nothing against Iowa plenty of friends there, was that a wedding in Des Moines last year was lovely, but there might not be that many places to buy Under Armor. Okay. Now the internet will ship anywhere. Tell people that. You guys have anything to add on that one?
Brandon: A lot of these people are just looking for reasons to purchase. They already have subconsciously in their mind, “Hey, I’m going to get this because I deserve it. I worked hard for it.” Whatever their reasons are. You just got to push them towards the direction of why they should order it from you, why they should order it on the internet, et cetera. Then once they have those suggestions, they’re happy with them, they click on your link they make the purchases. It’s all about showcasing the benefits for them.
Tim: Cool. Cool. Yes, so I’m getting the bottom of the questions here. Let’s see. Yes, thanks a lot of people are saying thanks for the Cornerstone content. That’s great. Paula. Paula, if you want to do a guest post on that I’d probably buy that content for you, how to do a bachelorette party. Maybe not really for things I might buy but, hey you know what we’ve got authority and I said I’m not opposed to it. That’s a pretty good idea. When am I doing my first event? Well, Susan you have to help me with that we’ve talked about that but I’d like to do that.
I definitely think that Fort Lauderdale needs an event. Another reason for people to come to sunny South Florida. Could good content be outsourced? That’s a very good question. If you train people well and tell them how you like content, you can get good outsourced content. It’s very hard. I know Brandon and I have talked about this and the struggles of getting good outsourced content. But if you tell them, “Hey, review this product for me. Give me six good things about it and two bad things about it in your review. Use these keywords in it. It can’t be that bad.
What I’d like to do is get content done to a point where I can go back in put my own spin on it, my own voice and spend minimal time making it something presentable. That’s the way I think about it. What do you think about using that plug-in in terms of SEO, the best reviews of the month? I haven’t used that. Have you guys ever used a plug-in that does the best reviews of the month or a year et cetera, week.
Brandon: No. I haven’t used it but I have gone and updated a little bit of the copy each month and changed the title tag of the month to match the current month. Like it would be I don’t know, best Under Armor reviews August 2017, and then it would be September 2017.
Tim: That’s definitely a good one. Another question is what’s the minimum word count on each multi-day post? I think search engines technically need like 200 to 350 words. It’s always different. I’ve heard varied ranges on that to index something. If your site has a lot of authority they’ll index anything. I like to go to 350. That’s a number that’s been thrown around for many years, to index them. Again, the best rule of thumb is the answer is always in Google. Go to the first page of Google. Type in something like best craft beer and see what they have here. Now throw out every website like Forbes, because that’s a clear authority site. Authority site is something that everyone knows about. It’s clearly going to have a lot of power, huge marketing department behind it, but takes some little guys.
Like beerbrewing.com, definitely small, and see how many words they have. Maybe look at their domain stats. I don’t want to get into too much SEO. It’s just a whole other animal, but the answer is on the first page. Take a look at those. Again, for your daily updates, if you’re trying to update and keep people engaged, there’s really-you’re really not to pay attention to word count.
If it’s a review or a corner stone content, you do. Let’s see here. People already getting excited about the Fort Lauderdale event. Yes, I will put that together. It’s on my agenda. We’re just getting right to the bottom of it. You’re very welcome. A lot of you are saying, “Thank you.” You guys as well. Do I still use sniper sites?
Very good question. I do not. The reason is a sniper site is basically a site that’s all about one little topic. I think I do actually have one that may or may not be online. I can’t remember if I took this down or not. Yes, I do have this online. This is a sniper site, trying to sell the product Muscle Egg. Muscle Egg is a liquid protein. This is a sniper site. I basically said this is my testimonial to this amazing product. This ranks in Bing and Yahoo I think for Muscle Egg reviews because it’s a great, great domain. Google does not like it. Why is that? Because it has 10 pages. Google likes authority sites. They like a lot of pages, a lot of content. Again, I might have 10 pages on the site. They liked it for a while, but you can see I haven’t updated it since ’14 because Google started saying, “Hey, we don’t like these sniper sites. We know you’re just buying these little domains gaming our system. We like big sites,” which is why you see all those authority sites on page one.
They get rewarded because they’ve got huge, huge amounts of pages, a lot of traffic, a lot of authority. I don’t do sniper sites anymore. I try to be more generic. [unintelligible 01:32:27] is a great example of that. Karen, very good to see you on the webinar. I think I saw something on Facebook that you’re okay. As you know, this Las Vegas incident hit very, very close to home with me. My first day with my current girlfriend was at that exact venue. Very, very scary event. My thoughts are out with you, guys. I did think of you Karen. I saw you post on Facebook. All my best to you and anyone who’s affected by that, and any other tragic event in the world.
It just seems there’s a lot of crap out there right now. It’s a tough world. That’s why I like to live behind my computer with a laptop anywhere I can.
Brandon: If you can keep you off the keyboard as you’re typing.
Tim: Yes, exactly, exactly. Ken is voting for Fort Lauderdale. Ken, good to see you, man. I know we live miles apart. We’ve got to make something happen soon. Thanks a lot and we’ll make that happen. It’s been a brutal three months. As Doug says, many hats. Everything with hurricanes to Puerto Rico, to that earthquake in Mexico. I know people that were affected by that. Something as trivial and it’s obviously a sadness, but Tom Petty, and American legend dying yesterday too.
I’m sure I’m missing a lot of things too. One of my idols, Rick Flare, had a pretty bad health issue. I’m sure I’m missing a million things. That’s not out of disrespect or anything, but a lot of things are going on in the world and I’m just here behind the keyboard trying to keep things moving. Unless anyone has anything to add, I’m going to end it.
I thank everyone for coming and staying almost two hours at this webinar. It’s been very good. Almost everyone stayed to the end, which is always a very good sign that we did a decent job. Again, thank you very much for coming, I know people came from a lot of parts of the world, Europe, Nicaragua, Canada, the States, Barbados, nice.
Thanks again. If you guys are new, if you’re seeing this on a replay, et cetera and have questions about it, firstname.lastname@example.org is the best place to send those. For friends on Facebook, you can always ask me there or on any group that you see. Brad and Brandon, thank you guys for coming on hicking some knowledge. Everyone appreciates it. you’re getting a lot of thank you in the box. I’ll wrap up the recording. I just got some text updates form Minnesota that they are reading the Yankees 3:0 unbelievable.
Unbelievable. We may finally beat the Yankees in the pole season playing game. That just doesn’t happen. Guys, everyone stay very safe. Someone from the Cook Island, welcome. Welcome, Cook Island, awesome. Thanks for attending everyone. I will repost it most likely on YouTube. If you’ve got an email about this, I’ll probably email it back out. Again, thanks.
My question did not get answered, TWeb, I see you there. Ask it. Go ahead right now. We’ll stay on for you. Paul is here for the Yankees. Paul, I’m going to block you. [laughs] Brandon is Red Socks fan. He’s definitely not cheering for the Yankees.
Brandon: I saw Derek Jeter was it yesterday? No, on Monday. What’s today? Tuesday. Yes, yesterday, I saw him at the gym. He was working out next to me and I had on a Boston Salt Lake t-shirt. I couldn’t even say, “Hi” to him. I just wouldn’t do it.
Brad: You could not, Miami.
Tim: I’m going to wait for this question to come in because again, we didn’t have a webinar last month thanks to Irma and some other things. What were the three Chrome plugins needed for the keywordtools.io? Brad, I’ll let you answer that one.
Brad: I believe it’s only one Chrome plugin. Did you say three or free?
Tim: That was the question, three. I don’t know. That’s your-
Brad: Got it. It’s only one. You only need one. Just type in keywordtool.io, one word, Chrome plugin or Chrome extension and it will pop up?
Tim: Cool. Does this answer your question Mr. Web or Mr. TWeb? Sorry. I just saw TWeb. I don’t recognize the screen and probably I know if I’m butchering it. I’m really sorry. No disrespect.

Once again, thank you for Brandon and Brad for coming on, making time tonight on this lovely Tuesday night in South Florida. Actually, it’s pouring by me. How about you? I know we’re all about 100 miles apart from each other.
Brad: The thunder is shaking my storm shadows or hurricane shadows, I need to take them yes.
Tim: Damn. You’ve got Internet still so you’re good.
Brandon: Yes, yes. That’s all I need.
Tim: Cool. A lot of people saying, “Thank you.” [unintelligible 01:37:50] to you, Rusell and I’ll see you guys real soon. Again, I’m going to take this down. Hopefully, didn’t go too long or we can upload this somewhere. Thanks again, everybody and I’ll catch you real soon.
