Michelle Macphearson just released her Web 2.0 Traffic Generation Blueprint
I got to skim through this a couple of days ago and need to read it again in more depth and do a lot of planning.
It is free, and well worth downloading.
How can 3 ebooks from highly experienced internet marketers on Web 2.0 marketing and traffic generation be totally different, worthy of your time, and in the case of Stampede Traffic, worthy of some cash?
I would look on Authority Black book as a guide to building an authority site with wordpress and promoting it, which is effectively what Jack’s Authority Site Centre is all about, but they build the WordPress sites for you, and trick them out and host them.
Michelle’s Web2.0 Traffic Generation Blueprint is a step by step list of every way she promotes a website. It doesn’t get into possibly complicated decisions about deciding which site might be most appropriate, you end up generating traffic from so many different sources the odds are in your favour that you hit a good source. It should be noted that Michelle works a lot with out-sourcing, and this would be a perfect guide to give to a link builder and say “do this”, and also assign an outsourced writer to work with them.
I suppose rather than creating a mininet, it is more like a “social net” of 100s of interlinked pages on web 2.0 sites & profiles, social bookmarks and news items that eventually lead back to your money sites.
Stampede Traffic is a little more selective – you target the social networks you believe will give you the most traffic and best links, build up credible profiles, and develop “meaningful” communication with other social network users.
In some ways it is also more of an executive “Why are we doing this?” and “How are we doing this?” approach, and gives you some great basics. It is for niche marketers also looking to refine their approach.
All good reads, if you value your time I would read all of them, though I am not sure in which order, probably go for ABB, then Web 2.0 Blueprint, and if you find you need more of the executive overview, in a Marketing Sherpa style report, Stampede Traffic is ideal and extremely well researched.
Lots of well deserved positive feedback on Michelle’s Web2.0 traffic blog
Social Power Linking
Some people prefer their learning in a different media format such as video or audio, though normally video and audio courses published by expert internet marketers are quite expensive because of the cost of production, but quite often because some people can afford to pay well for information that will help increase their existing revenues.
As a companion to this review I have also published a review about Social Power Linking, a new physical product (8 DVDs, 3 Audio CDs) that has just been published by Jack Humphrey’s. For the current price of $149 + $20 shipping anywhere in the world it is exceptional value, and Jack might be taking a massive risk under-valuing his product.
I would love to know what you think about this risky strategy of pricing such a large physical product home study course at such an affordable price.
Take a look at my review of Social Power Linking.
