What’s Not Working in May

Well I have the new funnel set up and as suggested by Andy Waring in his free ebook ‘Ultimate Sales Funnel Blueprint’ I am throwing any traffic at it to see what sticks. The trouble is none of it seems to even making it anywhere near the target, let alone trying to stick. Herculist, European Safelist & SafeMailServices who between them should have sent out around 150,000 safelist emails and 3 times in the last 4 days, have returned no traffic at all. They had different headlines and body text although all went to the same link, but no one made it there. 5 Twitter posts, 5 on ApSense and 4 on IBO Toolbox all produced the same nil return. Looks like I might have had more success with Jingling, though I haven’t tried it yet.

I also wrote 2 articles (press releases is their on-site name) for IBOToolbox although at the time they were announced some guy was putting up links to his video every 60 seconds and pretty much occupied the whole of the front page within a short while. Article marketing is a much slower process though and I might just grab my articles back, turn them into pdfs and put them on the article depository sites that I’ve used before. These too are slow, back-burner type returns, but they are also good for brand building.

So I guess that all that’s left for list building is solo ads. Real ones, rather than what Herculist and etraffic911 / visitorshark call solo ads. I have some good sources and some good ways of verifying those sources too so let’s see what another week brings.
