It’s a great question. Let’s take this to a dictionary level for a minute.
Push Notifications are instant, clickable messages which appear directly on your desktop/mobile device. Websites can send push notifications directly to people who’ve “opted-in” to notifications from their web browsers. The so-called “subscriber” does not need to be on your site to receive the notification. Push notifications work on both desktop and mobile.
Now, I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. I have been a big fan of email for a long time and that is probably not going to change. And I am resistant to change as much as the next grumpy old bastard. However, to pretend like the world isn’t changing and you can just keep on doing what you have been doing and everything will be cool…is foolish.
We all have to keep up with what’s going on. When a new technology comes along that is going to help us we shouldn’t be ignoring that. So that’s why I started looking at push notifications. I started to see a lot of blogs that I personally love using them. And then I was asked if I would be interested in taking a look at something called ZenNotify and possibly promoting it. So with a heavy sigh and a realization that I need to change with the times, I said let me take a look at it. Here are the basics of what I saw:
You might have tried solo ads before and been ripped off. Pretty easy to do, especially if your new at it. The fact of the matter is you need to be looking in the right places and you need to be talking to the right people. YOu need to have the right message and you need to have the right squeeze page. Woah…that’s a whole lot of needs right?
Getting kind of needy around here…lol
I want to introduce you to a very special guest now though. He has spent the last 11 months doing nothing but building his list with solo ads and email marketing to said list. He’s gotten really good at it.
I’d like to introduce you guys to Solo Ad John!
Ever since college and researching the nature and goals of what google founders were trying to achieve, I’ve always known that the best way to optimize your online stuff is by optimizing it for humans, not search engines.
That surprises some people when they look at my youtube channel because they see like 12,000 subscribers and somebody behind it that doesn’t care whole lot about SEO.
The next question out of their mouths is inevitably, “Well if you don’t care about SEO then how the heck are you getting views?”
And the truth is I do something that I call human psyche optimization, or HPO for short. Now if that sounds stupid to you, that’s okay, I completely made up that term. However, that’s what I do. I optimize my stuff in a way that humans will respond to it.
SO your next question might be, “Okay Kam, that’s great man HPO, whatever…how do I do that?”
Well there are a lot of little things I do to achieve that but let me give you 5 really important ones right here.
I didn’t think so. I just named it.
It’s a quick and easy way to build a targeted email list and I’ll tell you how to do it right now…
People always think it needs to be hard to make things happen online. It doesn’t.
Lee Murray is polarizing. Let’s start there.
You either love him or hate him. There is no in between. He is classically misunderstood, criticized for his shenanigans, and I am pretty sure he is a GD genius.
But the people who inspire me…the people who really help me in this business, I have found that they are all like that. They are all polarizing in some way.
But first let me tell you why you should care about harnessing this platform:
If you were the new guy who just discovered solo ads you might be getting a nervous giddy feeling of excitement as you skim down a swanky website promising laser targeted traffic to you for a great price. In the back of your mind you might be thinking, ”it can’t be that easy can it?”
But then you think, “well maybe it can…yeah surely it can…clearly this is how the big boys do it. They BUY their traffic!”
Why not just send this traffic to an affiliate offer with a good sales page? Yeah that’s what I’ll do! This is going to be as easy as going down a river in a boat!
And then you promptly lay down your 35 to 50 bucks for 100 clicks of that ever elusive golden traffic that will surely flood your bank account with affiliate commissions…
And then it doesn’t. You get about 2 sales and lose about 40 bucks…
We’ve all been there man. The promise of easy money pulls us all in. I mean, come on, let’s be real…that’s how we all ended up here in the first place.
Alright, let’s stop fooling around. Let’s talk about how you can REALLY use solo ads to make money.
That is a true statement but it doesn’t quite do justice to Kern. He is also a business consultant, a millionaire, close friend of self help leader, Tony Robbins, family man, and someone that most of us consider to be a “top guru” in the online marketing space period.
Well…hell…let’s not short change it.
Frank Kern is a damn legend in the IM space.
…and that’s pretty good considering he started his journey living out of a single wide trailer in Macon, GA, selling credit card processing systems as a door to door salesman.
My first experience with Frank Kern was a youtube video that I found quite randomly while surfing the internet one night entitled, Make Money and Sell on Demand Core Influence. It has one of those funny titles that you know is probably bullshit but just outlandish enough to make you curious…
