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 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 –

Developing Your Blueprint

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.

Backlinks, Backlinks, and WordPress Plugins

In the last few weeks I have been directing most of my efforts to finding backlinks for my sites. As a senior learning Internet marketing I am finding this a daunting task. Everyone agrees that backlinks are necessary to a successful site. Where they differ is how to find these backlinks.

It is not that difficult to write articles and post them to article directories. Certainly many marketers have had great success doing this. The problem with this method is that Google recently gave these directories a huge slap for not having high quality content on them. It seems to me rightly or wrongly if I am going to expend a great deal of time writing articles I want them published on sites that will give my sites a high ranking backlink.


As a result I have spend my time looking for sites that will allow guest blogging. There are many sites out there that are looking for others to fill up their sites with good content. In my search to find suitable sites I have been looking for sites that have a page rank of at least 3. I sometimes wonder if it is the fact that I am a senior working at home that these tasks seem so difficult. I am encouraged when I read that only a small number of site owners actually do the work of getting backlinks to their sites.

James Martell of Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp fame offers a course called Backlinks Workshop. If you have read this blog before you will know that I am a big fan of James Martell. He is a down-to-earth honest Internet marketer who is willing to help others succeed. James has long been a proponent of finding quality backlinks. He used to advise writing for other webmasters and getting these articles posted with the understanding that the links in the articles would be left in place. However he now thinks that guest blogging is the way to go.

To this end I have been searching to find sites that encourage guest blogging and are willing to give a backlink to my sites. There is no sense in trying to say otherwise this process is slow going.

In an effort to help I posted a job on elance.com where I have had very good luck outsourcing some of my tasks. In this case it did not work. I hired a firm to try but it has turned out that they have had no understanding or experience with this type of task. This has been rather disappointing because in the past I have had good success in finding help.

The other thing that I wanted to share with all of you is the finding of two new great plugins for WordPress both FREE. The first is Broken Link Checker. This plugin will check your WordPress site as often as you set it up to check (72 hours) looking for broken links. You will receive an email to let you know that there are broken links that you need to check. The wonderful thing about this plugin is as your site grows it can be difficult to find exactly where there are broken links.

The other great plugin is Efficient Related Posts. This plugin looks for posts in your site that have related content and it links the posts together. If you use tags in your posts this works like a charm. It finds the related posts and puts the links at the bottom of the posts as you publish it.

This has been my week and I am off to look for more Backlinks. I am wishing all other seniors who are learning Internet marketing success in their endeavors.

Finding the Right Mentor

As a senior working online there is a quantity of information to learn. To get the most from your Internet business it is advisable to find a mentor. Before you decide on a mentor it is wise to sit down and evaluate your goals. Give some serious thought to exactly how you want your business to run. What is the purpose of your web site?

There are many types of web sites. You might be setting up a site to sell consumer products that will either be stocked by you or dropped shipped. You may have a service you want to sell. You may be setting up your web site to sell information products. Another site you might consider is an affiliate site on which you sell other people’s products. Currently a very popular type of web site is a community site; where people who have similar interests or concerns can post. This type of site is a sharing of common needs and ideas. Many Internet marketers are setting up membership sites. In this case people must pay (usually monthly fees) to belong.

How do you go about finding the right mentor for your needs? Often it is by trial and error. To avoid the frustration of following one person only to find they are not teaching what you need, research them first. Places you can find information about many of the teaching “gurus” are on forums. Take your niche and Google it for forums. See what people are discussing. A good site to visit is Warrior Forum. Many of the top Internet marketers gather there to share their ideas. Visit clickbank.com where you can find thousands of products about a variety of subjects. Find one you think will help your marketing efforts, buy the product and review it. Paydot.com, relatively new site that has many products on it is worth visiting.

Decide if you want a complete course that you can purchase and then follow along at your own pace. Or do you want a series of weekly online classes with weekly instruction assignments and questions and answers.

If you would like to build a site that sells affiliate products a good place to consider is Info Product Killer. If you would like a site that is based on building large community sites visit James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp. For nuts and bolts courses – how to start, get a domain, hosting, construct a web site, adding content, getting traffic, have a look at Michael Jones “Affiliate Code”. An excellent course on adapting public domain material to moneymaking products is “Million Dollar Publisher”. Many online businesses are built around Adsense ads. However if you are not careful you can lose your shirt. Mike Auton has an excellent course called Google Wealth Magnet”. Perry Marshall has always been known as the “guru” of Adsense marketing. He combined with Bryan Todd, in Janauary, 2010, to release the “Ultimate Guide to Google Ad Words, 2nd Edition”. Both Martin Avis and Tiffany Dow have put together comprehensive material on the use of Private Label Rights.

If you want your business to grow and prosper pick one mentor and follow their teaching to a conclusion. Don’t overwhelm yourself with running back and forth between first one “guru” and then another. As a senior learning to work online you need to find a system that helps you untangle the intricacies of building a web site and building an online business.
