9 Great Ways To Market MyBoatPlans

Here are some of the best marketing methods you can use to promote the MyBoatPlans program on your website, blog or newsletter:

1) Write an objective review or personal success story about the results you achieved using MyBoatPlans

This is one of the greatest promotional strategies you can use. It is a powerful preselling method simply because it is based on personal experience. Write a short success story about the results you achieved and place it on your website or send it out to your e-mail list.

By using specific details and adding pictures to your endorsement, you can dramatically increase its credibility and sales.

You can also write your own honest and straightforward review in which you explain the advantages and disadvantages of the program (don't be afraid to list some negative points. It will make your review more credible). Write in your own words and tell the reader why he or she should get their own copy. This is a powerful preselling method which you can put on your website, blog or send to your list.

When crafting your review make sure you talk about: the main principals of the program, the writing style (clear, concise, written in laymen terms), tell the reader about the free bonuses offered, the credibility of the author (nutritionist, health consultant), the value of the program and the testimonials on the website which the reader can verify by email. It is important not to go overboard when speaking of the positive value of the program. Make sure your review looks and sounds as honest and truthful as possible.

2)Post Articles On Your Website, Blog, Newsletter Or On Article Directories

Content is still king and your visitors will be much more willing to purchase the program if you provide a well crafted and informative article that gives the readers a taste of what I offer in the program and let them know how educated and credible the author is.

You can use our articles in the affiliate resource page. Simply copy and paste the article in its entirety and replace your affiliate link with the link in the resource box.

You can find all of my articles here and I highly suggest that you use some them to your advantage:

Note: You can write your own subject related articles using keyword rich titles and post them on your website and on article directories with your affiliate link embedded in the article.

Here are several article directories:

http://www.searchwarp.com
http://www.selfgrowth.com
http://www.acmearticles.com
http://www.advisor.com
http://www.allfreelancework.com
http://www.articlecity.com
http://www.articledashboard.com
http://www.easyarticles.com
http://www.goarticles.com

3) Use banner ads and book cover graphics

You can place banners and book covers on your relevant website pages. Make sure your affiliate link is embedded in the HTML code. Combining book covers and banners with high quality content such as articles or reviews is a powerful formula that always works. You can find book covers and banners here:

4) Use Product Ads

Adding MyBoatPlans into the product section or review section of your website can turn out to be an extremely profitable choice. The most common method used by many of our affiliates is placing a book cover along with a short spicy description or an enticing classified ad.


5) Send a solo email or an autorsponder course

If you have your own opt-in mailing list/newsletter, sending solo email to your subscriber's list is the classic most effective method to promote affiliate products as a joint venture partner. If done correctly this strategy can yield tremendous results very quickly. You simply send an email entirely dedicated to promote MyBoatPlans to your list.

You can write your own solo email or check out the "email" section of this affiliate resource area for sample email template. You can also write me as I often try to arrange a special bonus or an incentive to make my joint venture partner's offers more appealing.

If you don't have your mailing list, it's time to build one right now. The saying that "The Money Is In The List!" will justify itself time and time again once you build your own subscriber list and send out those emails. How does one build an opt-in list? Well, there are many subtle ways and more straightforward methods to build a decent list of loyal subscribers that converts well.

First you have to get an autoresponder. For a high quality autoresponder that we use and recommend go to: Aweber

You can offer a free weekly or monthly newsletter or e-zine to your visitors or a 5-day mini course in exchange for their name and email. The visitor "opts in" and subscribes, and you then have permission to send them your newsletter as well as other promotional emails you think may interest them.

Sending an email with a promotion to a substantial list of subscribers, who trust you, can result in a huge burst of uncontrollable sales. One of my affiliates had generated more than $9500 worth of commissions in less than 24 hours from ONE email sent to his list. That's how powerful this method is.

If you have your own list check out solo email section specifically designed for this purpose:

You can also use a branded autoresponder email course. Think about it. Instead of sending people directly to my sales letter or to a review page of my product, where most visitors leave on the first visit and you never hear from them again, you can start by sending traffic to a page with an opt-in form offering a 5 day mini course.

Your visitors sign in and receive a pre-written 5-day email mini course (in 2 day intervals) using autoresponder software. This allows you to maintain contact with your visitors, send them the course right to their mailbox and other informative material and a chance to offer them the product time and time again, instead of only once. This will dramatically increase your sales.


6) Use Pay-Per-Click Search Engines For Instant Traffic

Pay-per-click search engines are a definitive method to generate instant-targeted traffic to any webpage. The process goes like this: You bid on certain "keywords" each with its specific cost per click. Whenever a customer uses any of your keywords to perform a search in Google (for example), sees your ad and clicks on it, you pay the "cost-per-click".

For example, you might bid on the word "boat plans ". Whenever someone types in this search term and clicks on your ad, you might pay something in the neighborhood of 5-25 cents.

With the right experiments, tracking, tweaking and conversion rate testing, pay-per-click campaigns can produce a steady surge of sales that runs on autopilot.

While, you don't need a website to use Pay Per Click (You can simply place ads and send customers directly to my sales letter using your affiliate link), a much wiser and more profitable choice would be to send your visitors to a page (also called a landing page) where you presell the program using a review, testimonial, mini-sales letter or even better by offering a 5 day email mini course. This way you're not only increasing your chances of making sales, you're also building your list.

You can download landing pages at:

http://www.myboatplans.com/affiliates.htm#downloadlp

Here are the top pay-per-click search engines around:

1) Google Adwords - https://adwords.google.com/
2) Yahoo (formerly overture) - http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com/
3) Miva - http://www.miva.com/

Important note: another reason why you should not link directly to my website but rather send your visitors to your own landing page is that Google Adwords recently implemented a new rule that only one ad is allowed to show per search term for each specific website.

For example, if two MyBoatPlans affiliates are bidding on the term "wood boat plans", only one ad (that links directly to my website) will show up each time a web surfer types in that term.

In order to get around this, create your own custom landing page that presells the program and links to my website. This will ensure that your ads will show up every time someone searches for your keywords, rather than having to wait in line against other affiliates who are searching for the same terms.

Additionally, if you're serious about launching a pay-per-click campaign, I would highly suggest checking either Adwords Miracle (a fantastic highly original step-by-step guide) or Commission Crusher (A powerful method to earn huge commissions on Clickbank).

Note: Prior to reading these two books, I didn't make any real money with Google adwords. Since I learned the secrets of how the Google Ad Words system works, I have driven thousands of clicks to the websites of other affiliate products I promote, with return on investment (ROI) of more than 500% on some of my campaigns.

You are welcome to visit our pay per click section on this affiliate resource page for some fabulous tools and our proven highly converting pay per click ads.

You should also contact me directly and if you want me to place your conversion tracking codes on my order confirmation page so that you can track your sales in detail to maximize your profits.

7) Promote the program in your blog

If you have a blog, you can use it to promote the program through your affiliate link. You can mention the book several times in your recommended links section, throughout your blog entries, on your blogroll, by using classified ads, reviews, testimonials and graphics. You can also use our articles as blog entries (make sure you keep the content intact and insert your affiliate link at the bottom).

By the way, if you don't own a blog you can start blogging right now, without any cost at all by going to www.blogspot.com or wordpress.com and get a free blog. Make sure you keep your blog fresh and updated with new and submit it to as many blog directories as possible.

Several places to list your blog:

8) Send Out a Press Release

Press releases are one of the cheapest yet powerful forms of marketing. Press releases also offer one of the highest potentials in lead generating.

Press release is also perceived as more honest and credible than regular advertising due to its objective newsworthy tone. Every few weeks, be sure to post a well-crafted press release of your recommendation for MyBoatPlans.com at PRweb.com and make sure you include your affiliate link. Most press release websites are free, and will produce almost instant results but if you pay PR WEB $80, they guarantee to have your press release picked up by all the major search engines, potentially bringing you a surge of steady income.

Several places to publish your press release:

http://24-7pressrelease.com
http://businesswire.com
http://emailwire.com
http://emediawire.com
http://e-syndicate.net
http://express-press-release.com
http://free-press-release.com
http://i-newswire.com
http://mediapeak.com

http://pr.com
http://prbot.com
http://pressreleasenetwork.com
http://prfree.com
http://prleap.com
http://prweb.com
http://XpressPress.com

9) Promote On An Online Forum.

This is a powerful and free method of generating leads and sales. Since most forum members are sensitive toward those who try to directly promote products without making a considerable informative contribution to the community or without paying for advertising, make sure you follow these 2 simple rules:

1) Become part of the community by posting regularly on the bulletin and contributing valuable information prior to even mentioning the program you're promoting.

2) Use your signature to sell the program (Most forums will allow you to place a signature at the end of your posts. Some will even allow you to post pictures, and this is a great opportunity to use a book cover image)

3) Use the soft sell approach, meaning you should never spam/directly promote the program in your post (don't make it look like an ad) but rather speak of your specific experience with the program and recommend it to the forum members. (Read the rules of the forum first and make sure they allow posting affiliate links inside the post). Simply run a search on google for "boating forum" or "boat forum" and do some looking around to find out which forums have the largest member base and traffic.
