Hello SuperTips readers,
It looks like I'll have to rewrite one of my special tips.
It's the one called "How to JV with a super affiliate" -
which explains exactly how to word your email to get
your target interested and responsive.
I won't list it out here - it's tip 41 in my free ebook
I produced the tip after analyzing all the JV type
messages that people have sent me in the past and then
using the best bits.
By the way, that's not to imply that I'm a super
affiliate - the method holds if you are writing to a
newsletter publisher or a website owner.
But last week an even better approach was made to me.
It came from a gentleman called William Charlwood.
So, what was in the email that William sent me that was
even better than those best bits ?
How could he top my very own SuperTip ?
The answer ?
Well he didn't send an email.
He simply phoned me !
After I made sure it was not someone selling me double
glazing William introduced himself as an Internet
marketing consultant from Wiltshire which is about 70
miles away from me in London.
As you must know, when you speak directly with someone
you can pick up far more than in an email conversation
and I quickly realised that he knew what he was talking
And when he told me that he'd written an ebook - for
sale at ClickBank - I became even more interested.
... he mentioned the subject.
It's about Google AdSense.
My enthusiasm dropped.
AdSense as you may know is the name for those little ads
which you can feed to your site and get paid per click.
They are closely related to AdWords which appear at
I actually have an AdSense account but have done very
little about it.
For a start it seems a bit vague in that Google do not
explain how your commissions are calculated - and they
even forbid their members from making their income
But also at the back of my mind there's the thought that
maybe it's a passing phase, people will stop clicking on
those ads and Google will drop the whole concept.
Well William's book gives you a formula to estimate the
commission you are likely to receive.
And it also revealed that AdWords currently generate
some 95% of Google's total income of around $1 billion.
Sounds like they'll be around for the considerable
So out of the window go my two main objections.
In fact my enthusiasm shot up as I proceeded to read
"The Definitive Guide to Google AdSense"
I learnt tips for positioning my ads, ad styles to use,
which pages to put them on. And great advice on traffic
generation (worth reading even if you don't use
Best of all throughout the book there are links to some
outstanding resources as well as membership to the
AdSense Insider Group.
The book is bang up to date, I quote one sentence
referring to a Google tool
"This tool was launched in June 2004".
In addition customers can have the opportunity to become
affiliates for the book and William shows a most
brilliant way to promote it.
Which I'll be doing - thanks to a phone call.
