For those that don’t know, I partnered up with a friend, Carl, and we launched mediabuyscoach.com. It’s a site that teaches/coaches affiliate marketers in several different ways to do media buys. The reason we launched it is there is high demand for the information, but none is freely available. We’re charging $199.99 per month, but if you can’t make that back more in the first month, then you’re not doing the work. I’ve got a couple questions from people about the site, so I thought I’d answer them here on the blog. Let’s dive in:
Do I need a budget of $5,000 to $10,000 to run a media buy?
The answer is no, you don’t. We show you more then just the traditional way to do media buys. We show ways in the first month that can be done for less then $500. How much you spend is a direct relation to how much you will make, but you can never start out playing with the big boys and their huge budgets. I always say, walk before you run and that includes this site’s required budget and activity.
Why should I listen to you and Carl, what do you guys know about it?
Rest assured we know plenty. I’ve been doing smaller scale buys for years and Carl is producing very large numbers daily now. Between his large production and my coaching experience, it’s a winning combination. Yes you can try to do it on your own, that is certainly an option, but for the price, you’d be silly to take that route. People who are doing big numbers don’t like giving away all their secrets. We don’t care about that. We know that there is plenty of room for everyone, so the more the merrier as far as we’re concerned.
Don’t you run FOUR coaching sites now? Isn’t that pushing it?
Yes I do run 4 coaching sites now and if I feel like it, I’ll open a 5th too. I have great partners and great moderators on every site I run or am in a partnership in. The “coaching empire” is always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to do affiliate marketing and I can’t see myself stopping at four. In fact, if anyone has a traffic source that nobody else is using and you want to teach it to the world, let’s partner up. I’ve got the best training system in the world, with my automatic drip feed method, which I created over 2 years ago. I use this method so that members do not get information overload or feel like there’s just too much information, (a common complaint on my PPC Coach site). There is a ton of information and we do our best to organize it to make it as easy to understand as possible.
What do you make of the competing sites cropping up lately, it used to be just you and Wealthy Affiliate?
I love competition. I love it for many reasons, but the main one is it makes the end users quality of coaching and experience better. I have no problem competing with any site out there. My sites have stood the test of time. Some competitors have come and gone over the years for my PPC Coach site, but it’s still thriving. I get emails all the time about new sites attempting to bash me or my sites, that’s ok with me. You can’t please everyone not matter how hard you try. I use any negative comments I hear or read about my sites and make sure I fix the issue, if there really is one. Usually it’s some bash marketing tactic that they’re using. Not my cup of tea but to each his own I suppose.
One thing I’ll never do is bash any competitor. It’s not my style. I learned that lesson when 2 of the moderators on one of my sites left and created a site to compete with mine. At first I was angry and reacted stupidly because I felt they were sneaking around behind my back and then poaching my members. Then I realized that was silly. There’s no need to say negative things about others or make up lies about them in order to further your own business, it’s just not a viable way to react or be long term. The good part about being a human is we can learn from our mistakes. I learned from mine and now I totally embrace competition as it’s good for everyone. We don’t want another Google on our hands in any industry!
Anyhow, that’s all I’ve got for today, if you have a question email me, ppccoach At gmail Dot Com, I’ll be happy to try to answer them in a future post.
