Revenge of the Affiliates – Kindle Training

Have you ever wanted to write books and sell them on Kindle? Or better yet, have someone else do the writing for you while you sell the books on Kindle and make monthly commissions?

Ever since Kindle came out I’ve been fascinated with it. So fascinated that I’ve been stockpiling a pile of books that I’ve written so I could one day go upload crazy and list them online.

I’m glad I held back though… because although I had done the writing I hadn’t done the research. Without research who knows if my little books would ever sell!

When Brian Johnson released his Kindle training called “Revenge of the Affiliates” I knew that I wanted it. Brian always produces quality products whether it’s how to sell halloween items or WordPress plugins – you know that they will be good.

What I really liked about the Kindle training was that there was a whole free pre launch series stepping you through how Brian makes money on Kindle. You’ll be shocked when you realise how little “writing” there is in his books but they are still of high quality and make passive income each month. I was also pretty surprised with how long it took to go through the training, how good it was and that Brian is giving it away!

In the training you’ll learn how Brian first entered the Kindle market over a year ago. He started as a true newbie in this niche and ultimately developed a system where about 10 books (that he didn’t write) earn him monthly passive income. No list, no fancy pants backlinking and starting with no advertising budget.

Here’s my overview of the pre launch video training:

Video 1 – Selling Topics

In this video Brian steps you through the research you need to do to discover topics that will sell on Kindle. Thank goodness I overcame my aversion to videos and watched this because this one video saved me from uploading my stock pile of books and re-thinking the title and category I should be focusing on. Brian also gives away some valuable tips on how to get an instant boost in the Kindle store and the best pricing strucutre for your new book. Less than 30 minutes to watch and well worth watching at least once.

Video 2 – Conversions and Traffic

Brian teaches you how to leverage traffic and get more eyeballs for free to your book. He uses this information that is freely available (just takes time to research) to name his book. Without watching this short 20 minute odd video you could risk losing traffic.

Video 3 – Reviews

Using ethical and white hat methods you learn how to use free sources and more importantly when to use them to get more reviews for your book. Getting reviews on your products and books is always important and Brian shows you how to work smarter to get reviews coming in.

Bonus – Live Training replay

I don’t often like watching webinars anymore. They are usually too long and tedious for my liking. However, I did enjoy Brian’s webinar because you get the feeling he genuinely wants to help people achieve the same success with Kindle he has. In the webinar Brian briefly describes the 6 step formula he uses to create Kindle books.

The most important take away that you get from this training is that first and foremost Brian is a marketer and not an author. Important difference because not everyone likes to write. If that’s you and you are wondering how on earth to publish on Kindle you might be surprised how easy it is to produce a quality product that people love. To support this, check out Brian’s first book on the Kindle store. I don’t want to spoil it, so I’m not going to name it here, but it is primarily images and has very little words. In addition, it has been top book in its category and continues to earn Brian money each month.

If you are a writer then you will save money by doing the work yourself and not outsourcing. More importantly, you will realise the importance of marketing when it comes to getting sales automatically and passively each month for your work.

Certainly well worth watching at least once.

You can follow along and do the free  training yourself here

Theoretically, you could do the free training that Brian provides and get a great book up on Kindle and start making sales.

However, I would suggest that once you’ve completed the training you check and see if the Revenge of the Affiliates training is available and snap it up if you can. Unlike the pre launch series the 6 step training is a pdf. It is packed full of information and expands upon what was in the launch videos. Often Brian removes this from sale so you have to sign up to his list to get notified when it is available.

If you’ve ever wanted to create your own publishing empire then I highly recommend checking out Brian Johnson’s – Revenge of the Affiliates Kindle Training course.   I’d love to have a Kindle book a day challenge where I create a book each and every day for a month and pop it up on Kindle.   With Brian’s method, I can produce a high quality book that will sell, and sell regularly.

Push Button SEO Review

It seems every 5 minutes that there is a new  push button SEO WordPress plugin promising great things to users.      WordPress SEO plugins tend to come in a few different flavours there are those that make it easy to complete your SEO meta data on each post and page, those that track your ranking and link building efforts and those that teach you to optimize your content for the search engines for maximum effectiveness.

We know that if we want to rank our sites in search engines like Google and get their coveted first page position organically then we need to optimize our content for the search engines.         SEO means different things to different people.       Some people have set rules about keyword research, keyword density, content formula and links.      It can all result in a lot of time being spent to perfectly optimize your posts for search engines and engage visitors as well.

Rules of  Engagement

Nowadays in the changing content delivery and engagement world (or blogging as I call it!)  it’s important to have different modalities for visitors to consume your content and  for search engines to spider.    A combination of  text, images and video/audio is an effective way of ensuring that the visitors that hit your site have a way of consuming the information in the way that they want.      Add in some social media share buttons and your truly  on your way to the first steps in creating an engaging blog.

The problem ….  

The problem is that:

a) most of us don’t like to think too much when creating our content about keyword density, LSI, related tags and the like; and

b) we don’t have time to create multiple forms of content for each post that we write across multiple blogs.   Heck some of us even struggle with writing the post!

WordPress Solutions to the Rescue

WordPress plugin developers have known this for years and have created plugins that can pull in content in the form of video, images and the like.    Other plugins have been created to teach us SEO by use of a plugin.     The problem with both those solutions is that there was never ONE easy to use solution that allowed you to quickly optimize  your content and bring in related content for more engagement.

Push Button SEO Review

Problem Solved 

A new WordPress plugin has hit the market the brain child of  successful internet marketer Brian Johnson.    The plugin addresses all the common SEO issues and makes SEO  push button easy for newbies and experienced users alike.    The plugin allows you to quickly add in your  Primary keyword for your post.   It then gets busy and analyzes your content.      It uses a simple traffic light system of red, amber and green.    If  your content is green your keyword is in the content sufficiently.       You can then pull in related keywords so you can either incorporate them in your post or use them as tags.      Now there are all already plugins that do this on the market and they are good.     There are two main differences with this plugin.    The first difference is that it is easy to use.     It doesn’t complicate things by telling you about keyword density and lots of other stuff it just gives you the relevant traffic light.

The next difference with this plugin is that it allows you to pull in SEO friendly content to add more engagement, interest and SEO value to your content.      You can quickly search using your keyword for images, video or snippets in the form of blogs on that topic or news.     Click the content to add it to your article.    It really doesn’t get any easier.   A simple refresh of your browser will let  you know if  your content has now been given the green light or if you still need to add a bit more content in.

Push Button SEO WordPress Plugin

Pros

The plugin has a number of  features in short it:

  • builds a  database of incoming search terms from search engines.   In the admin screen you can see the keywords that  you are ranking for.   You can then use that information   to optimize the content for even more traffic
  • improves internal linking
  • allows the user to choose additional seo friendly content from Flickr, You Tube, News and Blogs to import into your posts or pages.
  • allows users to show snippet content for trackback love
  • shows related searches and keywords that you can use to incorporate into additional LSI content in your posts or use as tags
  • prompts you to change meta data
  • easy to use with simple but effective interface and little, if any, learning curve
  • comes with SEO training

Cons

  • You still need an SEO plugin for your meta data.   I prefer Yoast SEO and it works well with that
  • if you use Yoast SEO it already has inbuilt related keywords (but not as comprehensive as Push Button SEO)
  • there are about 3 plugins that you could use (most premium plugins) that you could combine to get the same effect (although one has heavy server load)
