There’s a Huge Demand for Online Marketing Consultants

By charles kirkland | Contextual Advertising , Marketing , Uncategorized

Did you know that about 20% of small businesses fail in their first year, and 50% of small businesses fail in their fifth year?

Don’t look at this as a glass half empty. Instead, look at how many businesses need some kind of online marketing help.

When I became one of the top 100 affiliates at ClickBank, I did the opposite of what everybody else did.

I found the need first and matched the product to it.

Most people have a product, and they find somebody to sell it to.

That's the hard way; it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

With small businesses I already know most of them need marketing help.

You can’t open a small business magazine like Entrepreneur, Inc, or Fortune Small Business without seeing articles about using the internet to sell your products.

This is why I think small businesses are a goldmine for 2018.

They know they need to use online marketing to sell, but they don’t really know where to start.

There’s a huge demand for online marketing consultants.

The biggest online marketer I personally know has an email list of about 500,000 people, and he has been building it since 2003.

Think about this.

Approximately 543,000 new businesses get started each month in the US. There is no shortage of people who need help.

Do you see how huge this market is?

That's why I want you to join me this Thursday night for a live training call to learn how you can tap into this massive market.

[Cyber Monday] Jumping the curb in my 4×4

By charles kirkland | Contextual Advertising , Marketing

I had zero intentions of going out on Black Friday because of what happened to me 3 years ago.

To give my wife time to wrap presents I took my daughter shopping on the Saturday before Christmas.

Totally against my wife's better judgment.

In my mind Chuck Norris and Superman wear Charles Kirkland PJ’s to bed because I’m Super Dad!

I was in trouble the moment I got off the interstate.

Traffic is bad on a normal day, but this was insane.

It took about 30 minutes to get into the parking lot, let alone find a parking spot.

Once we got inside it wasn’t any better.

I have never seen so many people in one place in my life.

People were packed into stores like sardines in a can.

You could hardly move.

It didn’t take long for my daughter to decide this wasn't fun.

The lady at one of the checkouts told us it was taking 2 hours to get out of the parking lot.

I have ADD and after a few cups of Starbucks coffee there was no way I could spend that much time stuck in traffic.

After traveling 15 feet in 10 minutes I started freaking out.

My daughter was getting fidgety and asking how long this was going to take.

All the mall traffic had to merge into one lane to get to the main road.

The main road looked like a ghost town because of the bottleneck from the mall.

So I did what any super dad driving a 4,317 pound 4 wheel drive SUV that can seat 7 people would do.

I asked my daughter if she remembered the Phineas and Ferb episode of Truck Driving Girl where they jumped the curb and drove across everything.

She said yes and I told her to hold on!

I turned the wheel hard to the side and drove up to the curb.

Before she knew what I was doing I gave it some gas and the front tires climbed over the curb and then the back wheels.

All you could hear inside the car was my daughter laughing at me.

I gunned it and we started driving across the grass at the mall to freedom. I slowed down as we jumped off the curb and hit the main road.

Behind me I could see people stuck in their cars pointing and one truck trying to follow me.

When my wife heard what I did she wanted to know what would have happened if I got stuck.

I told her if I owned a 4x4 that could not make it across the grass at the mall I would have slapped a “For Sale” sign on it.

So going out on Black Friday wasn’t on my list of things to do.

But my son who was home from college wanted to get out the house and my wife and daughter were shopping.

So I bit the bullet and ended up back at the same mall with my son.

Traffic was bad, but it was manageable.

In celebration of not having to jump the curb at the mall I decided to extend the Black Friday sales to Cyber Monday!

Should We Bid on our Competitor’s Brand?

By charles kirkland | Marketing

This is an extremely loaded question.

One everybody has to decide for themselves if it's worth it.

Google gives you the ability to show your ad when you search for your competition’s brand name.

While this may seem like a great idea, it could turn into a disaster if you're not careful.

Before you go down this path let me ask you a few questions.

Do you look at these businesses as your competition or potential JV partners?

If they're potential JV partners, you can really get on their bad side fast. You may get way more sales as JV partners.

Do you think there's enough search volume to justify creating a ad set for your competition's name?

Let's face it; if they only have one search a day you'll end up with a low quality score for ads that are seldom seen...which leads to a very high CPC.

Are you prepared for your competition to start bidding on your brand name and do you have the budget to fight them?

Bidding wars don’t help anybody except the ad networks.

There are a lot of things to consider with branded PPC searches.

So am I saying that bidding on your competition is bad?

No, there are plenty of times it makes total sense, and it comes down to ROI.

Every campaign needs to prove itself with ROI.

But what is the ROI from bidding on your competitor’s brand and is it worth it when you factor in the potential fallout?

Each person needs to make that decision.

Reply and let me know what your thoughts are on bidding on your competitor’s brand.
