Been cataloging and organizing the last 5 years of MP3 interviews, PDF Cheat Sheets, and Conversion Videos…

Thought I might as well give you the benefits of that too ūüôā

Right click the image above and you’ll get a PDF full of links to my BEST Cheat Sheets, Interviews, and Conversion Videos

It’s all my best stuff, all in one place!

(Don’t say I never gave you anything)

Now go turn some visitors into buyers, would you?

PS – If you haven’t already joined the LIVE CONVERSION WEBINARS club, you should do so now. ¬†If for no other reason than (a) the “best conversion secrets of 2012” video is about to scroll out of the archived club recordings and become a $67 product in it’s own right; (b) the “Persuasion Architecture” bonus audio contains the crowning jewel of all my work for the past 8 years and (c) today you can still download both of these for less than five dollars

PPS – If you’ve been through the hyper-responsive club but never got around to implementing the work (or not quite as thoroughly as you wanted to)–OR–if you’re servicing clients and think whitelabeling Glenn’s hyper-responsive bulls eye research behind you might make you look stronger to your client… get your tuchas over to BullsEyeMaster.com

PPPS – If you’re spending more than $20K/month in paid advertising and would like my team to start optimizing your landing pages and conversion funnel FOR you, well, you may be in luck!

PPPPS – If you’ve got a system that converts really well online but you’ve got NO telephone follow up in place, you really ought to consider letting this funny looking phone genius do it for you on commission.

A ZILLION Ps S: ¬†Would much appreciate you SHARING this page, posting it in your forums, passing around the PDF by email to ALL your contacts, and telling your mama’s how cool it is to have Dr. Glenn’s stuff. (Not particularly modest, but hey, I’m too old for that)

How to Commit Social Media Suicide

You might think this post would be all about what not to do while marketing your site in the Web 2.0 nexus we call “social media” … but it’s not.

You see I ran across a very interesting service yesterday called the “Web 2.0 Suicide Machine“. It’s designed to automatically erase your profiles, contacts, and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and MySpace, and ensure you can’t log back in again.

Apparently this is a task which would take several hours if you tried to do it manually, but now you can kill your social self with just one click… brilliant. ¬† (They plug the benefit of “discovering your real friends again”)

Now, ¬†whether or not this is a good idea for a marketer really depends upon how judiciously you’ve been using social media, and what results you’ve been getting.

The majority of marketers I’ve spoken with seem to be aggressively TRYING to profit from social media, at the expense of time and energy which could definitely be put to better use in more traditional direct response efforts. ¬† (NOTE: there ARE a small minority, however, who seem to be leveraging social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook… it’s still not clear to me the exact principles and techniques they’re using which distinguish them from the riff raff… as soon as I can find someone who talks about it clearly and cogently I’ll get them for an interview!)

What I think the emergence of the Social Suicide Machine does point out is, it’s worthwhile beginning the year by asking yourself ¬†“Are you spending too much time in Social Media?” Is it possible you’re¬†inadvertently¬†committing marketing suicide by doing so?

What do you think? ¬†I’d really like to know!

Google vs. Facebook – Advertising Wars

  1. There’s a LOT more advertising inventory available than what you see in Google. (Google owns search, but there are about a dozen other networks with MUCH more inventory for display advertising)
  2. You haven’t been able to get at it yet because of extremely high minimum spends (e.g. $10K to $20K/mo commitments) and because it’s much harder to target effectively …
  3. The coming war between Google (who organizes the world’s information – Web 1.0) and Facebook (who organizes and connects the world’s people – Web 2.0) really defines the differing values and changing search behavior we can expect to see in coming years…
  4. This war should open the vast traffic networks to the smaller entrepreneur (who has prepared the right tools)…
  5. To prepare for the opportunity, please listen to the free MP3 below

My Best Thinking on AdWords, SEO, and Competitive Intelligence

Below you’ll find a FREE MP3 of an intriguing 45 minute conversation I had with my Director of Copywriting and Director of Sales at¬†Rocket Clicks. ¬† (NOTE: The call has been slightly edited to remove the details of our clients and their sites)

We did NOT intend to distribute this conversation, so I apologize for the speakerphone, but I thought it represented a unique opportunity for you to be a fly on the wall to see:

A) How a high-level copywriter interviews “in the trenches” sales people to elicit the benefits and objections necessary to write A level copy

B) How my thinking has evolved into a more comprehensive, yet simpler system for building a solid internet marketing structure

The original purpose of the call was for Tony to get the material he needed to develop a consultation form like the one we’ve got here, but targeted at people who wanted more than PPC management… instead desiring a more comprehensive package including market research + site design/repositioning + PPC/SEO.

You see, it’s been several years since I originally innovated and presented the How To Double Your Business process, and I’ve moved WAY beyond the advanced survey methods I originally presented. ¬†The way I approach markets presently is simultaneously ¬†simpler and more powerful.

1) MAKING MORE MONEY WITH FEWER KEYWORDS

The most successful of the 100+ clients I personally audited at Rocket Clicks last year (especially those who seemed to survive the economic earthquake in the fall of 2008) were   focused on many, many fewer keywords, leading me to develop a set of algorithms for choosing the smallest number of keywords likely to make you the most money.

In fact, I now believe it’s ESSENTIAL ¬†to have a well articulated rationale for choose ONE dead-center bulls-eye keyword for your business… the one you’d advertise on if Google restricted your account to only ONE adgroup with ONE broad match keyword in it. ¬†(The “ultimate elevator speech”).

Considerations of relevancy, volume, and bid price are essential in making this choice.

And once you know your Bulls-Eye, I think it’s also essential to define a very small set of concentric circles around it … no more than six keyword groups. ¬†And you’d better have a good written definition of the CONCEPTUAL BOUNDARIES OF YOUR KEYWORD SET, or else you’ll wind up wasting time, money, and diluting your conversions by aiming off your “keyword archery target”


2) GATHERING MORE FREE COMPETITIVE INTELLIGENCE THAN ANYONE IN YOUR MARKET

Once you know exactly where your keyword archery target starts and ends (and why!), I’ve innovated a NEW method for leveraging social media, competitive intelligence spy tools, and RSS fees to set up one systematic and comprehensive competitive intelligence dashboard…

Then identifying YOUR SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT COMPETITOR and totally reverse engineering their web testing diary. ¬†(I’m not just talking about the stupid PPC spy tools … I’m NOT NOT NOT talking about figuring out what web changes they made which made them successful in the first place)

3) IDENTIFYING POINT OF DIFFERENCE BENEFITS WITH A NEW 80/20 VERSION OF MY SURVEY INTELLIGENCE PROCESS

On the foundation of a more clearly defined and simpler keywords set AND comprehensive competitive intelligence, we then utilize the survey process to find point of difference benefits for the market.

4) DESIGNING YOUR SITE, COPY, AND FOLLOW UPS TO BUILD ON ALL THIS UNIFIED INTELLIGENCE

With a clearly defined bulls-eye and keyword archery target, the knowledge of who’s winning the game on that target and why, the consumer language, emotional benefits, and point of difference benefits in hand, the process then proceeds to UNIFY ALL YOUR MARKETING COMMUNICATION AROUND A ¬†SINGULAR, WELL RESEARCHED USP.

5) BUILDING OUT PPC AND SEO CAMPAIGNS FOR YOUR VERY FOCUSED TARGET:

SEO and PPC are expensive and time consuming.   The gorillas who survive are the ones who know exactly where to FOCUS their time and money.   The new Livingston Process ensures you eliminate waste and laser focus on a hyper-responsive message for the short set of keywords which define your business.

6) OPTIMIZE YOUR CONVERSION: ¬†Multivariate and Taguchi testing are still VERY powerful tools (always will be). ¬†But they’re only useful when you’ve got the RIGHT INPUT to test. ¬† The new process above ensures you’ve always got a prioritized list of options for continually bringing your business to the next level.
