Fast Track Your Business With Outsourcing
As is James Martell’s style of teaching, he starts this session with a review of Pulling It All Together Part 1 of 2 and Pulling It All Together Part 2 of 2. He is always very encouraging and understanding if everyone is not quite up to speed. He understands that people learn at different rates and that they have pressures that may keep them from spending the time needed to fulfill each session. As I have mentioned before the wonderful thing about any of James Martell’s courses is that he videos them, provides transcripts of them, and records them. This allows his students to work at their own pace.

He begins Session 10 -Fast Track Your Business With Outsourcing Part 1 of 2 by having the students open their copies of their Master Site Plans. He then gives a history of how he moved from hiring local writers and graphic artist to finding them online. He gives an example of how time and cost saving this step was.

He is a firm believer in having his followers figure out what they do best and then outsourcing all the other tasks. He discusses the costs of doing this. He goes over how to present your project to an outsourcer. He then talks about how you can protect yourself against inferior work. He gives tips on picking contractors and negotiating price. He outlines your responsibilities to your providers.

James Martell is a big believer in using Elance to find suitable contractors. Other places to look for help are sites like oDesk, guru.com, fiverr.com, and vWorker.

The remainder of Fast Track Your Business With Outsourcing Part 1 of 2 was a tour through the Elance system. During this tour the students were able to see how valuable their prior planning and preparation was. It quickly became a cut and paste process to place an order for a project.

James Martell concluded James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 Session 10 with explaining his 15 Minute Rule – learn it and carve it in stone. The next session will be –

Keywords Are the Building Blocks

James Martell's Affiliate Marketers Bootcamp 2012

In session 7 of James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012, the topic is Keywords Are the Building Blocks. This is a subject after my own heart. Because there has been a dramatic shift from keyword stuffing to writing in a more natural way, it appears that keywords are often neglected. In this session not only does James give you a full hour tutorial but he also provides two supplementary videos on the subject of researching keywords.

As in all other sessions he starts with a quick review of what has gone before. He then moves into this session of the Affiliate Marketers Super Bootcamp 2012. To understand how keywords are necessary he covers the following:

  • How the Google Search Engine Works
  • Identifying the Pages to Develop Your Website
  • How to Complete Your Keyword Research
  • How to Complete Your Optimization Worksheets

Another example of how James Martell goes that extra mile for you.

James Martell and His Support

Help From James Martell’s Membership Site

James Martell's Affiliate Marketers Bootcamp 2012
For the last several weeks I have been reviewing James Martell’s new course Affiliate Marketers Super Bootcamp 2012 and I will continue to do so. Before I post about the next session of his new course I wanted to take a moment to talk about the support that you can get by being a member of James Martell’s site.

Part of the teaching that James Martell offers is to direct you to methods of getting quality backlinks to your site. He has a course that was initially call PAD. These letters stand for Professional Article Distribution. Now this method is not how to submit articles to every article directory that you can find. Rather the idea with this system is to place articles on other high quality websites with a link back to your website. Over time the exact method of how you should do this has changed and James Martell now teaches a different idea than his initial course. Just like everything else in online marketing this method has evolved.
James Martell and His Support
Since I first took James Martell’s course, I have been a member of his site. I have probably not taken full advantage of it; but there are so many courses available to anyone who is a member it is well worth the monthly cost.

Recently it turned out to be more than worth the cost of monthly membership. I have been working very hard to establish backlinks to my sites. I thought that I was following the plan exactly but I ran into a snag. Although I thought I was on the right track of having a master article written then having it rewritten into several original version of the theme. Once I had these articles in hand I then went looking for suitable sites on which to have them published. I have had reasonable success with this method.

However on more than one occasion I ran into rejections because the Webmaster felt they were duplicate articles. Now this embarrassed me greatly and I felt it tarnished my reputation. I posted this problem in the forum on James Martell’s site and was thrilled and somewhat surprised to have two of the moderators offer me help. They both very quickly said send me some copies of your articles and we will evaluate them for you. Their input has been invaluable to me! They also posted their opinion on the site and I think it will help others to learn from my mistakes.

I wanted to share this with the followers of this blog as I have been promoting James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 and I wanted readers to know that you get so much more than just a course from James Martell.

James Martell's Affiliate Marketers Bootcamp 2012

In session 6 Developing Your Website Blueprint Part 2 of 2 of James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012, he continues to guide his students through the beginning steps of getting your website organized. For some people this might seem a bit tedious but if you get this part right, all the rest will fall into place .

In this session he goes over the following:
Developing Your Website Blueprint Part 2 of 2 of James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers Super Bootcamp 2012

  • WordPress.org
  • Grab Site Detail Page
  • Open a Google Document
  • Make a List of Required Plugins
  • Develop Your Own Site Detail Page
  • Go To Bluehost360.com
  • Search, Search, Search, Some More
  • Purchase Your Domain Name
  • Go to StudioPress360.com
  • Purchase Your Domain

As always James spends a little time at the beginning doing a quick review of the previous session Developing Your Website Blueprint Part 1 of 2. He always feels that his students should take small steps to achieve a larger goal. I think also he can gage the effectiveness of the course by finding out where everyone is as they go along.

In session 6 Developing Your Website Blueprint Part 2 of 2 he starts off by explaining the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org and why you should be using WordPress.org to build your site. When I took his Affiliate Marketers Super Bootcamp he was promoting Drupal as the content marketing system. Now Drupal is a wonderful content management system but you have to be quite technically savvy to manage it. I can honestly say I was never able to figure it out. Ultimately with reasonable amounts of pain and frustration I had my site transferred to a WordPress.org system.

From there James reviews the 17 most favorite plugins that they use on their sites. This part is interesting but as he cautions don’t over load your site with too many plugins that you don’t need. I think that once you are up and running you can begin to see which ones that you will need. This goes back to your visitor profile and how you want them to be able to use your site combined with the information that you need to get from site.

James Martell has always been very generous in sharing his materials and in this session he shares his Site Detail Page. This is a wonderful resource for outlining what is on the site and where it is. In this area you can begin to identify your site’s required pages and where they should reside on the site. Using this as a template you can then go on to develop your own Site Detail Page. This is one of the homework steps from this session.

From there he moved to picking a domain name. Again in their practice of sharing Arlene Martell came on and talked about the steps she takes when finding a domain name. She and James outlined 10 ideas on how to find good domain names.

The next step was to go to Bluehost360.com and search for the availability of the names you are considering. James has long been a big supporter of Bluehost for registering and hosting domains. In his first session of this course there is a short video of how to use Bluehost. While at Bluehost take your time to search, search, and search some more.


Bluehost.com Web Hosting $6.95

To wind up this session he introduces the class to the WordPress themes at StudioPress. They are lovely clean themes with loads of functionality.

From this session there is quite a bit of homework assigned but with the final step of session actually buying the domain, students will feel that they are well on their way to actually seeing a site. In the next session of James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 he will discuss keywords and how to understand them and use them.

Affiliate Marketers Super Bootcamp 2012 Session 5 –Developing Your Blueprint

James Martell's Affiliate Marketers Bootcamp 2012

Carrying on with Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 , James Martell starts off with a quick review of the two previous sessions – Choosing a Topic and Finding a Niche. He helps define how you can map out what your web site should be about. The great thing about this session as well as the previous ones, you can use this plan for any web site that you have in mind.
Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 Session 5 –Developing Your Blueprint
A great deal of the focus in Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 Session 5 –Developing Your Blueprint is centered on your visitor. James helps you to think not about the information that you are dying to create but about what the visitors to your site might be seeking. He discusses whom these visitors might be, what they might be feeling, why are they landing on your site, what are your goals for them. In total he out lines the 8 big questions that you need to answer to aid you in building a visitor profile.

Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 Session 5 –Developing Your BlueprintJames teaches some interesting avenues that you can use to help answer these 8 questions and to develop whom the visitor to your site might be. After spending some time “digging in” to these resources you will know who your visitor might be and how you should build your web site to appeal to them. James uses Arlene’s process as an example that can be followed carefully for any niche.

For success this is probably the most important step in planning your web site. If the visitor is not able to find a solution to their needs they will immediately leave your site and chances are they will not return. Far too often when a new website is being developed too much emphasis is placed on the graphics and design and not enough on are you solving a problem.

This process will allow you to set goals for both your visitor and for site. In the next session of the Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp 2012 James Martell spends time discussing the structuring of the actual pages for the site.
