      I need to cut out a blank clickbank cheque, put my name on it, and paste it on my vision board. I’m a new affiliate of clickbank. In this business world, I’m new to everything.

    List Control 2.0 from Frank Kern Capsule Review 

    Disclosure: I’m not an affiliate for this product, I don’t know Frank and I get no compensation of any sort here… Not even good Karma… I don’t even have to justify to myself I made a good decision spending 2K on a training course – ’cause I sure as hell didn’t. You can put down your shields.

    After watching the videos almost twice over I wanted to write a little review here.

    In a nutshell: List Control covers it all – Coming up with a potential niche, identifying personas, building the website, promoting it, maintaining it. It is very complete.

    How well does it do it? Pretty well I must say. He has the right focus -or at least my same focus- across several KEY areas.

    1 – Frank mentions in one of the early videos of the program that the goal of promoting someone’s product via your list isn’t to be an affiliate – its to test the market for YOUR OWN PRODUCT. Yup, he knows where he is going. Even before I started promoting shitty Clickbank eBooks I knew the criteria wasn’t just popular stuff – it had to be something I could visualize myself with my own product out there.

    2 – The way the program transitions from ‘driving-to’ the list and selling products is so smooth I wonder if Frank even makes the distinction in his head. The constant throughout is good will – see #3

    3 – Good will. This shines through his entire program. “Do the customer right and they will do right to you.” Now I don’t ascribe to the ‘kumbaya drum circle hippy surfer pothead lets-make-the-world-a-better-place philosophy – the way Frank presents it, however, works. It works for very simple reasons, see #4

    4 – Frank seems to have read a couple of texts on NLP and influence. I’d bet any money he has read Robert Cialdini’s original book on the six principles of influence -that one is a masterpiece. Now NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic-Programming, is a pseudoscience at best – however the parts of NLP that seem to be in the program (you can tell by the funky names of mundane shit) are very mild and clearly in line with more scientific literature, so it works well.

    Some higlights that come to mind as I’m writing this:

    1- Understanding that you want to be selling your own products, and even have affiliates sell your stuff.

    2 – The idea of forming a Trade Union. Good discussion on how to go about it.

    3 – The explanations of his tactics on what he calls ‘triangle of trust’, boomerang, and results in advance.

    4 – The discussions and highlight of what worked in about 4-5 other launches and products – those are invaluable case studies.

    5 – The walkthrough the “mysterious stranger’ video he put together earlier this year – really good. You can see he is thinking of the emotions he wants to evoke on his target market. I’ll add to this that the idea of evoking emotions is a great thing to do while creating text for websites of sales pages. I’ve got an interesting process to do this for written pieces, which I’m hoping to share someday when I get a bit of time to write it out.

    6 – Walthough the Magic Bullet System launch videos and messages.

    7 – The ideas on building trust and understanding trust as a currency with your list subscribers – as well as mean of generating reciprocity, scarcity, and authority.

    Somewhere along the line you have to ask yourself how much Frank knows about marketing stuff to people outside the internet marketing community. Its a bit of a mystery – it does seem Frank has been extremely focused on the Internet Marketing market for the past few years, and that takes away some punch from the program.

    The bottom line is that this program is very-very good. However this doesn’t matter one bit unless you put it into practice.

    Is it worth the $2K price? It depends. If you’re not going to apply it, then it isn’t worth two cents. If you’re going to use it then it might be worth it.

    There is, however a way of selling via mailing lists that I believe is just effective, does your readers not just good but “awesome”, it isn’t new, and Frank doesn’t cover. I think its a real gem since I don’t see folks really doing it – probably because everyone has their heads up the shady Acai rebills instead of focused on getting folks to their destination. I’ll write up on this idea in a future post – not to be a dickhead and leave you hanging, I’d like to test this stuff before I write about it.

    PS: If you want to go get List Control – Google it, lazy ass.

    $77 – The Magic Number 

    Doing some mild research… Scanning the HTML of some offer pages.

    First stop was Saj’s Zero Fricti0n Marketing, where I looked at the HTML and found this nugget right at the top:

    <!-- saved from url=(0052)http://www.rogerscopy.com/Saj/images/salespage2.html -->
    

    I decided to check out Rogerscopy and its the site of a copywriter. Quite a nice unintended endorsement from Saj – Now I know who might be good for copy-writing for a launch. Bookmarked.

    The other thing that caught my eye was a call to an off-site script:

    http://www.thesiterush.com/vsa/callagent.php?cid=2

    I moseyed over to “The Site Rush” and realized its another of Saj’s sites – no mysteries there, he isn’t hiding it. I got curious to see the price he put on this one…

    Its the magic number…

    $77

    Seventy-Seven is the LARGEST number (from 1 to 100) that is perceived as the SMALLEST number. I believe reference to this research is in Robert Cialdini’s latest book (“YES!”)- I remember reading it from a reputable source and checking up on the research – Its was legit. When it comes to prices and spending money, $77 is perceived as a smaller amount than even $76, and is the largest number that is perceived as the smallest.

    PS: This is the first post where I’m putting affiliate links. I’d suggest replacing with your own if you really want any of the stuff I ever mention, but if you just want to send me money, then by all means… Go for it. I followed NickyCakes advice and got an ID specifically for the blog – So no reversing.

    Passive Income Power! 

    I enlightened my beautiful wife on the power of passive income with a timely demo.

    Turns out I had about four conversions between Friday and Sunday… They all show up via CB stats on my iPhone, so on Sunday I pull up the stats and remind her: “Remember when we were out shopping on Friday? We made that. Remember when we were working on the yard? We made that much.”

    This may seem like an obvious exercise, but it works wonders.

    Changing Clickbank Affiliate ID in the middle of a Subscription? 

    I just realized the affiliate commisions from my PPC Bully 2.0 subscription are NOT coming to me. I rememeber when I signed up with a blank ID. Back then (November?) I didn’t have a Clickbank account and it hadn’t dawned on me I could be my own affiliate and get a discount. Damn. I’m going to have to “rectify” this.

    I wonder… Is there any way to change the affiliate associated with a subscription without canceling and signing up again? Should I give Clickbank a ring?

    I See Buyer Data 

    Something that struck me as odd is that I can see the full name of the people that buy through my affiliate ID in Clickbank. I’m seeing much more information than what I imagined spread to the four winds. Let’s see:

    1- I see the full search terms that drove the visitor, not just what I bid on.
    2- I see the mouse movements of the visitor on my site, when they left, when they came back, what they highlighted, what they clicked.
    3- I see their e-mail and name

    That’s a heck of a lot, considering that all I’m doing is acting as a go-between.

    By the way… Another conversion tonight! .. After days of dry traffic.

    Clickbank Sales Snapshot - 03-30010

    But this really sucks – By the time I can dedicate some time to my site(s) I’m falling asleep. I’m getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night – I’m going for the Deluxe night tonight… Five hours!

    Something’s gotta give.

    Holy shit! Three conversions today Monday! I decided to check Clickbank before tumbling into bed – I have to wake up in four and a half hours to take the kids to school (who was the fucktard that decided school should start at the crack of dawn?). Anyway.. Wow

    Awesome. I went a little deeper here… Looks like I need to swallow my words from a previous post. I am seeing three conversions, but only two names in those three lines. My first thought was ‘a duplicate billing’ – but its not – The second like with the repeated name came in three minutes after the first one and its for a bit less than half – that’s the up-sell! This person bought the initial up-sell after buying the product. The item number is different, the amount is different, the personal info is the same.

    So awesome – I’m dying to watch this on ClickTale tomorrow. It has to be tomorrow because I’m about to pass out now.

    Wohoo!!

    Another conversion last night! Yay!… And I think I figured out what the problem is with Google conversion tracking. I’m a little disappointed I have to tell it the dollar amount that a conversion is worth to me – if I sell more than a single product/variant via Clickbank, its all going to track the same value. How does Yahoo do this? I don’t know, but somehow they figure it out.
