Facebook Ads: Why and How to Use Existing Post Across All Your Ads
 
03:40
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why should you use existing post in your ads?: 0:09 How to find the post ID: 1:05 Where to input the post ID: 1:58 Hey all! In this short video, I explain to you the benefits of using 'existing post' in your ads and how to set them up. So you may have seen posts in your Facebook news feed that had thousands upon thousands of likes, comments, and shares. Chances are, those people are using 'existing post' in their ads. Meaning instead of creating a new ad copy/post for every ad, they keep the exact same ad and show that ad across different audiences. So if they have 100 total ads split testing against each other in terms of demographics, location, interests, etc... they don't use 100 different ad posts - they use only 1 that is circulated differently across all those different dimensions. This creates for a very strong ad copy, since you get all the comments, likes, and shares added in and people want to jump in and see what's going on. Social proof can really go a long way! In order to do this, you simply need to go to Ads Manager/Power Editor, and open any one of your ads in 'show on Facebook post with comments'. In the URL box, you should copy the last sub-ID consisting of a string of letters, and then paste that number across all of your ads in the 'use existing ad' slot when it asks for post ID. That should do it! If you do that, all of your ads should show the exact same point and pile up the social proof you need! That's it!

Teespring: How to Setup Your First Campaign

In this video, I show you how to create a Teespring campaign. Teespring.com is basically a site that allows you to create your own shirts/mugs/hats/hoodies/etc... to sell. The best part about this is that you actually don't need to pay to make any of the shirts until you actually sell them. In fact, you don't even pay to make the shirts either - the customer covers all the costs. All you would be paying for is ads if you will be running paid traffic to your design. So let's get started - how do you actually create a design on Teespring? Very simple - the first thing you need to do is sign up. Simply click on 'login' on the top right corner of teespring.com and create a new account. You will literally have to just put in your email, passwords, and name I believe. After that, you can click on 'start your design' on the top right corner as well. You will be immediately taken to a tshirt page where you can either write down/create your own message right away, or upload an existing image you have. I would recommend the latter since the options provided to you are very limited from Teespring - it's not a design software. So I would make my designs on Photoshop and then just upload them onto my shirts. You can select whatever you want to sell, whether it's shirts, women's shirts, mugs, hoodies, etc... on the right hand side. You can also see what each design would look like with different colors. If you actually want to buy the design you create you can click on 'buy this shirt', but if you actually want to sell, which is what we are going over in this video, just click on 'sell this design'. You will be taken to a page where you can edit the colors and create the URL of your shirt. This is the URL your users will go to to buy your shirt. You can also set the price for your items here. One thing to keep in mind is that after you finalize this page, you cannot go back and make any changes. If you want to make changes to any area of this page, you will need to create a new campaign. But after you are satisfied with what you have here, you can click on 'continue' and you will land on the page that allows you to customize your title and description for your shirt. THIS is something you CAN adjust and edit after you submit your design. I would use some of the strategies used in the book 'Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion' here as we discussed in one of my previous review videos to make the product you are selling more appealing to your audience, such as providing them with an exclusive offer, presenting social proof, etc... The link to that video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSgwCLrIWc4&t=25s&index=3&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNN8uVwfijuBZG8zJ4RLhOK After you do that, you can also create a promotion for your audience. To do that, go to 'promotions' on the top right hand corner and click on the 'refresh' button to generate a code for you. You can also create your own code ID by typing it in. You can set the price for your promotion here and say how long it will last until. After you do that, you can take people directly to the discounted offer by following the template presented directly above the promotion. It goes something like this: www.teespring.com/yourshirtname?pr=yourpromocodehere. And that's it! In the next video, I will show you how to input the Facebook pixel code into your Teespring campaign and how to read the information provided through your Facebook Ads Manager.

How to Create a LinkedIn Ad
 
11:49
Hey everyone! In this video, I wanted to show you how to create a LinkedIn campaign. LinkedIn is another great platform you can use to promote your products online. It is not as widely used as Facebook or AdWords, but that is where your advantage would come in. You can reach an extremely targeted and narrow audience with LinkedIn ads - the only downside to this is that it is extremely expensive and costs at the minimum $2.00 per click! It is similar to Facebook in that you can do laser targeting - select a bunch of topics you want to target and make sure all of them intersect together. The first thing you need to do to start advertising on LinkedIn is to create your own personal account. Simply go to www.linkedin.com and complete the process - it's really fast and simple. The next step involved creating our company page. Depending on how you want to run your ads, you may want to create a 'business page' so that your ads are seen as coming from a business, rather than your personal account. To do that, you need to click on 'Create New Company Page' from the options you see at the top of your menu bar, and make a name for your company and say 'yes' to the verification that you are the owner. Once you do that, your company is up and running and you can do some minor changes, like adding a description and images. Now that we have done this, the last step is to actually create your ads. Click on 'Advertise' from the top menu, and you will be redirected to the next page. Click on 'Start Now' and you should be able to start building your ad. The layout is the same as for Facebook ads and Google ads - create a title for your ad, find your audience, set a budget, etc... Keep in mind that the audience list that you choose from the different categories must include everyone that is on that list together at once in order for the ads to show. In other words, it's not like the basic Facebook interest targeting where it's the 'and/or' approach. For LinkedIn, all the categories must intersect in order for the ads to show and the more topics you add, the more narrow and targeted your audience will become. Select your audience, set your bid (minimum $2.00 per click), enter your card details, and your ads should start running right away! And of course you can always go back in and edit your ads and campaign. That's all for LinkedIn ads! Give it a try and if you are getting a positive ROI, keep going with that campaign and maybe others! If not, consider changing something up or just not running LinkedIn ads for that campaign at all. LinkedIn ads aren't perfect for every campaign! That's it! If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help!

ClickFunnels: How to Add a Favicon
 
02:02
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is a favicon?: 0:08 How to add a favicon to your funnel(s): 0:31 Hey all! In this short video, I show you how you can add a favicon to your ClickFunnels funnel. Once you apply this to your funnel, it will show on all of your pages within that funnel, so is an all-in-one solution! First of all, a favicon is basically a logo or representation of your page that shows up on your tab at the top of your page. It's a very minutiae detail, but can make a big difference. I am one of those people that looks at the favicon on every site I go to, so it does add to the credibility of the site. The first thing we will need to do is actually find a favicon and save it to our computer. Next, we can go to the 'digital assets' tab in our ClickFunnels account and upload the image to the ClickFunnels server. After you do that, just open up that picture and then copy & paste the URL into the 'favicon' section of your funnel. You can do that by going to your funnel and clicking on 'settings' on the top right corner of that funnel. It will show an area where you can put in the URL called 'favicon URL'. After that, you are pretty much good to go! It can either show up immediately, or can take a few hours, but your favicon should be up and running! That's it!

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What's this about? Why bother?: 0:29 How to fix this: 2:08 Testing and seeing the difference: 4:19 Helloooooo, So if you are an affiliate marketer and have been trying to track conversions, especially through pages you don't own, I feel your pain. If you are like me, you may have given up the offer entirely since you could not properly track conversions through pages not belonging to you, and thus could not optimize your ads/traffic sources for success at all. But not to worry! There is actually a way to track conversions from pages that you don't own if you are using ClickMagick. ClickMagick basically creates a redirect page that you are taken to after your first page, and then redirects you immediately to the page following your first page. So the pixel is input into that redirect page which allows your conversions to be tracked so that you can optimize your campaigns! Let me show you how you can go about doing that: First, you will need to create a tracking link for the page through which you are trying to track conversions from. So if I want to track how many people visited my sales page from my initial thank you page, I would need to insert the pixel onto that sales page. Problem is, that sales page doesn't belong to me, so we can't directly put it in there. So what you would need to do is place that tracking pixel in the 'advanced settings' portion of your sales page where it says 'pixel/code'. You can actually input any code in there, whether it's a Facebook pixel or regular tracking pixel. We also need to create our primary initial page 'the front end of the funnel' (you need to select that option) and attribute conversions to this link AND the sales link. So those are in total the 3 things you need to do before you can check to make sure the pixel is firing properly. When you do the test, you should see the action fire after you land on your whatever page you want the pixel to be on. Then, when you click on the individual click from your initial landing page, you should be able to see what ad/traffic source exactly caused the conversion! Incredibly useful so that you can optimize your campaigns! You can also set your Facebook objective safely to 'conversions' now even if the page you are promoting doesn't allow you to input your own tracking pixel there :) That's it!

ClickMagick: How to Track MaxBounty Sales

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What's the point of setting this up?: 0:06 How to setup the postback URL for MaxBounty: 1:13 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to setup the postback URL for MaxBounty through ClickMagick so that you will see when you made a sale through your tracking links. This is incredibly useful since it will allow you to see what traffic source exactly generated you the sale when you read the data on ClickMagick. So if you have numerous traffic sources, or perhaps different ad groups and keywords, if you setup the sub-ID's as per my previous video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5nr1hLQy7s&t=12s&index=4&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion), you will see exactly which sources gave you the results. The way we do this is first my accessing the 'postback URL builder' through ClickMagick and selecting the affiliate network we are working with - in this case MaxBounty. You would then need to copy and paste the code provided into the 'callback URL' area of your MaxBounty offer you are promoting. If you prefer to just put in this code ONCE and not have to repeat this process for every different offer you are promoting, you can go to your profile settings, edit profile, and paste the same link so that it's applied universally to all of your offers automatically. After you do this, you would need to add a unique sub-ID to the end of your affiliate link. You would again get this information from the 'postback URL builder' in ClickMagick and copy & paste that at the end of your affiliate link. MaxBounty will now be able to feed ClickMagick with sale information so that whenever you make a sale, you will see that reflected in your ClickMagick tracking link so that you will know what sources work and which ones don't. The process is relatively consistent across all the different affiliate networks, but I will show you how to do it with ClickBank and Peerfly in the upcoming videos (ClickBank being a bit more complicated than what we did in this video). So stay tuned! That's it!

Teespring: How to Setup Your Storefront
 
06:11
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is a storefront?: 0:06 How to setup a storefront: 0:38 Cool thing about storefront: 4:12 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to setup your storefront on Teespring. It's a cool feature that allows you to add all the shirts you create onto one 'website' that Teespring provides for you. The cool thing about this is that you can actually add all the expired shirts here that are finished with the campaign - so instead of permanently deleting a good design you may have, you can toss it here where natural traffic can make a purchase or two! The first step to create your storefront would be to log in to your account and on the top right, select 'storefronts'. I believe you need at least 3 products before you can create this. But then you would just fill in the blanks provided. Start by providing the name of the store, maybe something like 'Ivan's Shirts' in my example or 'Super Awesome Shirts' for you - whatever your shirts/business is about! Next, you would just have to basically 'create' your website by adding in information on the left hand side - the header information, background color, social media, etc... For the header section, you can either upload a logo or write out the text, but cannot have both - the font and text that you write should be sufficient and looks good enough to not necessarily need to insert your logo. However the maximum amount of characters you can use is 30. You can also change the color of the background here. For the storefront banner, this will basically be a picture or image that you can add just below your header. Next, you would need to add your products to your storefront. This will have a list of pretty much every single shirt you have created in the past and the different variations of it, so checkmark the one you want to add and they will be! That simple! In the storefront 'about' section, you would basically just write information about the store and what's it about in the description. You can add a link to your website, your YouTube, Twitter, etc... So that people can connect with you on social media. Last but not least, in the Teespring storefront 'settings', you would type out the URL for your store. This is the URL you would be giving out so that when people click on it, they will be taken to your Teespring storefront. I would enable cross-selling so that when people buy a product you have offered, they are presented with other potential products you have. As we discussed in our video on sales funnels (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZh2Qv9ZeE8&index=40&t=25s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNASorSJ04itRrhsnZ00x5u), this would definitely be a good move. If you also ever decide to delete your storefront, this would be where you can do so. That's it!

Google AdWords: What Are Broad Match Modifiers?
 
03:54
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What are broad match modifiers?: 0:24 How to set them up: 1:53 Why they may benefit you: 3:09 Hey all! In this video, I show you what broad match modifiers are, how you can set them up, and why you may benefit from them. This is a match type that is not listed in your group of 3 match types, so you will need to know how to set them up manually if you want them to function. So, what are broad match modifiers? It is a type of match type that requires the words to be absolutely present if you want the ad to show, but be more flexible than the regular 'phrase' match type. Under the phrase match type, the words you type in MUST be in order and have nothing in between them for the ad to show. With broad match modifiers, the words can be in any order, and can have any words in between. It is kind of like the best of both worlds - it is more broad than phrase, but not THAT broad that it will trigger your ad on any searches that are just closely related to your terms. To set up the broad match modifiers, you need to add a '+' before the words you want to be considered broad match modifiers. And don't worry that it says 'broad match' after you put that in - it is still actually a broad modifier. So if my keyword is 'flying monkeys', I can add a plus sign just before both words to make them both be absolutely necessary in order for my ad to show. So I would write '+flying +monkeys', or '+monkeys +flying', it would not matter. So if someone types in 'great super now flying how about now monkeys', my ad will still show up - as you can see, resembling the 'broad' match type in that it includes a greater variety of possibilities that will cause your ad to show. Given that, you do not need to put a plus sign in front of EVERY word. You can put the plus sign in front of the words that you want to be absolutely necessary for the ad to show. So if I type in '+flying monkeys', then my ad will show up when someone types in 'flying apes' for example. So because the 'monkeys' did not have a plus sign in front of it, it will stay a broad match type, not a broad match MODIFIER. Also keep in mind that you cannot mix and match keyword match types in one line. You would not be able to say something like '+flying [monkeys]', trying to make 'flying' a broad match modifier, and 'monkeys' an exact keyword. So keep that in mind when you are putting in the broad match modifier on only one word in your entire keyword - the words without the plus will go under the 'broad match' category! That's it!

Teespring: How to Setup Your Facebook Pixel Tracking
 
05:16
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Where and how to input the Facebook pixel: 0:26 How to track the data from your Facebook Ads Manager: 1:26 Hey all! In this short video, I show you how to install the Facebook pixel to your Teespring account and then track the data inside of your Facebook Ads Manager. The process is very simple - you just take your pixel ID after creating a Facebook pixel (you can learn more about that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo7ssvzEZ4g&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hPG5J4MiEPg6cd7FRrYScd0&index=5&t=25s) and insert it in the 'headings' and then 'conversions' section of your Teespring account. Click on 'update' and that's it for the Teespring portion! Now in order to actually read that data from your Facebook account, you would have to go into your Ads Manager and customize columns so that you can see the 'content view', 'initiate checkout', and 'purchases'. This will basically then allow you to see how many people visited your page, how many people added your item to cart, and how many actually bought. The most important statistic is of course the 'purchase' one. If you get a ton of views and people adding to cart, that's completely irrelevant if you have 0 sales! In this case, make sure the offer that appears on your ad is consistent with what people see when they actually land on your page and add to cart... That's it!

Google AdWords: How to Set Up Conversion Tracking (UPDATED FOR NEW EDITOR!)
 
08:44
Hey everyone! In this video, I wanted to show you how to set up conversion tracking with Google AdWords, using ClickFunnels as the example website builder (however the same process applies to any other website builder). Essentially, you would want to set up conversion tracking so that you can determine which ads/keywords/campaigns/ad groups are generating the most revenue and which ones you should pause, improve, or delete altogether. The first thing you would need to do to get started is click on the little wrench at the top of your AdWords dashboard and click on 'conversions'. From here on, you can select 'website clicks' as the goal, as that will be the focus of this video. You would then just basically fill in the blanks. Come up with a name for your conversion goal and set a value for each of your conversions. Is each conversion worth $20? $10? Also, every time someone buys a product, is each PRODUCT counted as a conversion, or regardless of how many products a unique visitor buys, it remains 1 conversion? These are some of the options you will need to fill out as you see fit for your business. The conversion window is basically the window of time your conversion can still be tracked for the person(s) buying. So if you set your conversion window to 1 day and someone visits your site and buys only after TWO days, you will not see a conversion recorded for that person. If you set your conversion window to the maximum 90 days, then someone who buys your product after 90 days of going to your site will count a conversion for you as well under that campaign. The conversion window for impressions is basically the same as for the click conversion window, but is regarding ad impressions rather than clicks. You can leave the bottom settings as they currently are since that's pretty much the standard default that you will always use. After you click 'save', you should be provided two Google codes. The first code you need to add to every single one of your pages so that Google has access of your website. The second code you would need to add to the specific page on which you want to track the conversions. So if you want to track how many people signed in for example, you would need to add that code to the page following the optin page (maybe thank you page), since the only way people can land on the thank you page is if they signed up. After you do that, you are done setting up conversion tracking! Just click through to the site on which you have the pixel to see if Google identifies it and it should be good to go. Also, you may want to add a column for 'conversions' by clicking on the 'modify columns' tab at the top of your ads/campaigns/ad groups, so that you can clearly see which keyword/ad/group/campaign generated the most conversions.

Facebook Ads: How to Add Facebook Pixel to ClickBank

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Putting the Facebook pixel into ClickBank: 0:21 1st way to check pixel is working: 1:53 2nd way to check pixel is working: 3:57 3rd way to check pixel is working: 4:35 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to input your Facebook pixel into ClickBank so that you can track sales and conversions! The process is pretty simple - all we need to do is copy our Facebook pixel ID and paste it into the ClickBank integrated sales reporting form. You will have to do it twice, once for the order form and the other for the order form confirmation. The order form page will have the event 'initiate checkout' and the order form confirmation will have the event 'purchase' on your Facebook conversion tracking. The process is similar to what we have done before with our ClickMagick tracking link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3rEn1k5oiI&index=11&t=303s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion) or Google AdWords conversion tracking (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbYHoGtDIVw&index=3&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNH0RJi21DWAXeCdCT1Lhy6&t=57s). After you do that, we have 3 ways to check to make sure the pixel is installed properly. 1) The pixel should show 'fired' on your pixel Facebook manager. It may not show the little spike, but it should have a date written on it saying that pixel was fired at this time. 2) Install a little Google Chrome extension called 'Facebook pixel helper'. It should show you whether there is a pixel on a particular page. When you click on it, it should show you YOUR pixel ID number and either 'initiate checkout' if you are on the order form page, or 'purchase' on the order form confirmation page. 3) We can right-click and select the option 'view page source' on the page we want to check. This is basically what our Facebook pixel helper is checking for us already. But we can always double check. Once you see the page source, open your 'find toolbar' (such as control+F on Windows) and type in the word 'facebook'. This should take you straight to the place where the Facebook pixel is input. You should also see a little extra at the end of your code saying something like 'ev=initiatecheckout' or 'ev=purchase' if on the order form confirmation page. This tells the pixel what the event is that we are tracking. That's it!

ClickMagick: How to Properly Track Bing Ads (Using Tracking Template)

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Where is the Bing tracking template?: 0:45 How will this benefit me?: 1:42 Bing/Google keyword tokens: 2:24 Link to the ClickMagick token page: https://www.clickmagick.com/tracking/tutorials/ppc-keywords/ Alternatively, you can type in 'How To Track Pay-Per-Click Keywords' in the ClickMagick FAQ. Hey all! In this video, I show you how to use the tracking template in Bing Ads. This is a space where you can insert your tracking link with some additional sub-ID's so that you can track your clicks on ClickMagick! Why do you need to use the tracking template, you ask? 2 reasons. 1) Your clicks may not show up on ClickMagick if you use Bing Ads and do not use the tracking template. If you input your tracking link into the destination URL, your clicks may not show up on ClickMagick. If you have numerous traffic sources and want to track everything under one platform, ClickMagick is the way to go. But in order to track your Bing Ads clicks, you must input the tracking template properly. 2) You can enter additional 'tokens' to the end of your tracking link in the tracking template field to provide more information about the clicks, where they are coming from, what device was used, etc... Kind of like what we did by adding additional sub-ID's at the end of our links to determine our exact traffic source (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5nr1hLQy7s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&t=3s&index=4). For example, by writing down the token {keyword} in those same squiggly brackets after your tracking link in the tracking template, your ClickMagick will show you exactly what keywords triggered the click! This is especially useful if you have the action, engagement, and sales pixels inserted, and want to see which keyword corresponded to your highest sales. This way, you can remove the under-performing keywords and increase the budget for your highest-performing keywords! As opposed to Google AdWords, you can also add the token {querystring} and that will tell you exactly what the user actually typed in the Bing search bar to trigger your ad and then have it clicked. Again an incredibly useful tool if you are using anything but exact match type for your keywords since it will tell you what caused the click and will allow you to fine-tune your keywords by adding negative keywords that don't yield clicks and adjusting current keywords to make them more specific to what the users are looking for. If you want to add the instant scroll when the user opens you URL, you would need to insert the '#sectionxxx' at the end of your TRACKING link. Here is a video I made earlier about to get users to immediately scroll to a section of your page if you only have one page: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_sLVybZ3-I&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&t=3s&index=12.

ClickFunnels: How to Make a Sales Funnel With OTO Upsells and Downsells
 
16:26
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Start making your sales funnel: 0:39 Adding your product to ClickFunnels: 4:46 Adding the proper button links to your OTO pages: 7:19 What should be my layout if I have more than 1 upsell and downsell offer?: 14:27 Sharing my free sales funnel with you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmpJBIi6mhI&index=35&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNASorSJ04itRrhsnZ00x5u&t=1s Hey all! In this video, I show you how to create a sales funnel with ClickFunnels with OTO upsell and downsell products. OTO stands for one time offer, and basically allows the customer who goes through your funnel to purchase another product after buying your first one (and going through your sales and order form page). It's really useful because once the customer bought, they are in the mood to follow through with their purchase and buy as much as is shown to them if they believe it will provide them further value. The OTO's make it really simple for the client to purchase, since all they have to do is click on the purchase button you set up, and the money will be immediately charged from their card they provided on the order page! This makes it incredibly convenient for the customer so they don't have to keep on putting in their card details to make every new purchase. Even though ClickFunnels makes this funnel creating process incredibly simple, you would still need to set everything up correctly for the funnel to properly function, and that's what I'll be doing here with you right now! The first thing we need to do is to create our funnel. We could start from scratch, or we could go to 'create new funnel', and click on 'make a sales funnel after collecting leads' option. This will create a landing page, sales page, order form, order confirmation form, and thank you page for us. In order to make our OTO upsell/downsell funnel, we will need to have our OTO offers immediately following the order form so that the credit card can get charged once and then doesn't have to be input again for the consecutive orders. After we do that, we will have to create some products for the OTO pages so that we can actually link them to the order confirmation page and interconnect the OTO pages together. You can do that by clicking on your upsell/downsell page, and then clicking on the 'products' tab your mid-right. You will need to include the name, dollar value, and any additional custom text you want to appear for that product on the order confirmation page. The 'bump' feature allows you to upsell this very product on the ORDER FORM page, but you can only have 1 bump product for your funnel. Now that you created your products in ClickFunnels (assuming you already have them in your shopping cart platform), you will need to add the commands on your OTO pages to connect them together. In our example as we start, we only have the upsell and downsell page, so our goal is to make it so that if people say yes to the upsell page, they are taken to the order form confirmation, SKIPPING the downsell page, and if they say no, they are taken to the downsell page page. No matter they say on the downsell page, we need them to immediately get to the order form confirmation page. The way we would do this is with the commands 'yes-link' and 'no-link'. If you are using ClickFunnels editor V.1, you will need to use these, and say 'yes-link' if your visitors agreed to purchase the OTO, and 'no-link' if they did not. In ClickFunnels editor V.2, you will still need to use these if you are hyperlinking text, and not using a button. On the button however, you should see the option to either 'not accept product', or to 'add product X to cart'. If you have more than 1 offer on a certain page, such as either offer A or offer B (whichever the client prefers), you would have to say 'yes-link1' on the first product and 'yes-link2' on the second so the confirmation order form will have either the first or the second listed.

ClickFunnels: What Are Clickpops and How to Use Them
 
05:53
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is a clickpop?: 0:05 How to get the clickpop code: 1:15 What to do with the clickpop code and which part to put where: 3:05 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to use the ClickFunnels clickpop. It's basically another popup that you can use either on a ClickFunnels page or any webpage you want! You would simply need to select ANY page you want to have popup, and then click on 'clickpop' in the settings. This is a useful tool if you want more than 1 popup on your ClickFunnels page or you want a much more prominent popup that will fill up the whole page or grey out the entire background so the attention goes to the popup. The way you would do this is grab the clickpop code from the 'publishing' option bar on the page you want to use as a popup. I would use a notepad for this and just copy and paste the entire code in there, but then separate 2 sections, everything after the 'script' and before the 'script' should be separate from the first section. This is because the first part of that code is for the actual popup URL and any delays or 'on mouse exit' commands, whereas the second part is the actual code that is necessary to make the popup properly appear. The other 2 options you have when taking your clickpop code is the time delay in seconds and the 'on mouse exit' feature. This will allow you to determine whether you want the popup to appear x amount of seconds after the page loads or have it pop up as the user is about to leave the page. You can also input the custom link text and the image. For the text, that is not necessary since we can just input our URL into any text and hyperlink it to show the popup when clicked. For the image however, I would recommend pasting the actual URL of the clickpop page and not using the feature available in clickpops since then you will also need to use some HTML to center the image and adjust it's size, which can be a headache. But after you copy the ClickFunnels clickpop code, you can go to any webpage you want to and insert that code into the footer section of the page. So the entire code that we copied should be pasted here. Now, if you load the page, the popup should show depending on the time delay or 'exit on mouse' feature you have selected. However, if you want the clickpop to show up after clicking on any button or text, you would need to copy only the first URL you see in the code we copied form the first part - the one starting with 'https' and ending with the apostrophe. You can copy that clickpop URL and just paste it into whatever button or text you want to have it associated with so that you clickpop will show! That's it!

Google AdWords: What Are Keyword Insertions and How to Use Them?
 
08:04
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Hey all! In this video, I show you what the Google keyword insertions are and how to use them for your own ads. They are basically a way for you to hyperfocus your audience by providing them with an ad copy that directly meets their needs. So for example if your phrase match type keyword is 'monkey', and someone types in 'now super monkey buy' into the Google search bar, your ad will show up and have that exact search description wherever you setup the keyword insertion. You can set it up either in headline 1, headline 2, or the description. To do this, simply put in a squiggly bracket wherever you want to add the keyword insertion and add a default text. You are pretty much done for the keyword insertion. The default text goes into effect if the search query the user typed in is too long to fit. So if the user typed in 'monkeys now cool awesome buy now' into the Google search bar and your phrase match type keyword is 'monkeys', the ad will show, but it will use the default text you set since the search query is far too long to fit into the headline. Of course if you put this into the description and there's space, then that search query will still go off and not the default text. You can also select whether you want title case, lower case, or sentence case for the keyword insertion. I would recommend using title case so that the first letter of each word is capitalized. That will grab the most attention and look the most professional. That's pretty much it. I wouldn't recommend using broad match type keywords for this since you may get some super highly irrelevant headlines/descriptions. Remember that broad can be extremely broad and your ad can show if someone types in synonyms or anything closely related to the keyword, so that could give you some highly irrelevant clicks.

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Hey all! In this video, I show you how to direct link affiliate products (MaxBounty, ClickBank, PeerFly, etc...) on Bing ads using ClickMagick without having your ads disapproved. Obviously if you have your own landing page and are sending people to the affiliate offer page afterwards, you should have no problems doing that at all. The issue arises when you are trying to direct link and Bing is telling you that there is a URL mismatch or whatnot and you are forced to create a landing page. It's great having landing pages, but sometimes we are so lazy that we prefer to just direct link. So, if you are using ClickMagick to promote on Bing, there are a few myths I want to bust first... 1) You do NOT need a custom domain in order to promote on Bing. It's great having custom domains for many reasons, but users on Bing will never even see your tracking link, so there is really no point in having one for Bing specifically. You can just use the ClickMagick default one (www.clkmg.com) and use that as your tracking link. It will take much less work on your end and the results would be 100% the same. 2) You do NOT need to cloak your custom domain (if you choose to get one) or the ClickMagick default domain (www.clkmg.com). In fact, cloaking will probably get you into more trouble than if you don't - Bing will find all kinds of destination mismatch errors and the like and it's just better to stay away from it entirely for Bing. You really don't need it. 3) You do NOT need to create a 'redirect' path in your domain registrar linking your custom domain (if you choose to get one) to your affiliate offer. All that is already done for you with ClickMagick, so why go through the extra effort? Now that we have that out of the way, let's move on to Bing. First off, I'm assuming you already have a tracking link ready in ClickMagick where you put in your affiliate link in the primary URL and generated a tracking link out of it that looks like 'www.clkmg.com/username/etc'. On Bing, all you need to do is input THAT tracking link into the 'tracking template' and add the additional tokens you want to use to track keywords, etc... I cover that in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WbBu6-QgcA&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&t=1s&index=18 Now what you put into the final URL is the catch - you need to put the exact URL that the user sees upon landing on your affiliate link. Do NOT enter your affiliate link directly into the final URL field. So if upon clicking on your affiliate link the user lands upon a site that says 'www.3weekdiet.com', then you just need to add that exact URL to the 'final URL' field inside of Bing. Don't worry - you will still get credit for the sale because when users click on your site through Bing search results, they click on the tracking link, NOT the final URL. And your tracking link redirects users to your affiliate link. That's pretty much all! Just make sure that you have the auto-tagging feature disabled under your account settings as well as the shared library area, and that you have nothing in the campaign level tracking template. You only need the tracking template for each individual ad level, not the campaign level That's it!

How to Create a LinkedIn Sponsored InMail Ad
 
09:45
Hey everyone! In this video, I wanted to show you how to create a LinkedIn sponsored InMail ad. LinkedIn is another great platform you can use to promote your products online. It is not as widely used as Facebook or AdWords, but that is where your advantage would come in. You can reach an extremely targeted and narrow audience with LinkedIn ads - the only downside to this is that it is extremely expensive and costs at the minimum $2.00 per click for an ad click and $0.75 just to send your inmail message to one person! It is similar to Facebook in that you can do laser targeting - select a bunch of topics you want to target and make sure all of them intersect together. The first thing you need to do to start advertising on LinkedIn is to create your own personal account. This includes creating a regular ad or an inmail ad. Simply go to www.linkedin.com and complete the process - it's really fast and simple. The next step involved creating our company page. Depending on how you want to run your ads, you may want to create a 'business page' so that your ads are seen as coming from a business, rather than your personal account. To do that, you need to click on 'Create New Company Page' from the options you see at the top of your menu bar, and make a name for your company and say 'yes' to the verification that you are the owner. Once you do that, your company is up and running and you can do some minor changes, like adding a description and images. Now that we have done this, the last step is to actually create your ads. Click on 'Advertise' from the top menu, and you will be redirected to the next page. Click on 'Start Now' and you should be able to start building your ad. The layout is the same as for Facebook ads and Google ads - create a title for your ad, find your audience, set a budget, etc... For the InMail Sponsored ads, you have the option to send people directly to your website or to a LinkedIn 'Lead Gen' form where the visitors can fill in their details, such as name, email, phone number, etc... You would then be able to go in and download that data and then upload it to your autoresponder. For the InMail ads, simply write out the ad, add a banner, add a personalization if you want (such as first or last name) and click next. Keep in mind that the audience list that you choose from the different categories must include everyone that is on that list together at once in order for the ads to show. In other words, it's not like the basic Facebook interest targeting where it's the 'and/or' approach. For LinkedIn, all the categories must intersect in order for the ads to show and the more topics you add, the more narrow and targeted your audience will become. Select your audience, set your bid (minimum $0.75 per mail send), enter your card details, and your ads should start running right away! And of course you can always go back in and edit your ads and campaign. That's all for LinkedIn ads! Give it a try and if you are getting a positive ROI, keep going with that campaign and maybe others! If not, consider changing something up or just not running LinkedIn ads for that campaign at all. LinkedIn ads aren't perfect for every campaign! That's it! If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help!

What are Negative Keywords and How to Use Them (Using Google AdWords)
 
09:54
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What are negative keywords?: 1:00 Why would you want to use negative keywords?: 1:24 How to setup negative keywords: 4:12 Hey all! In this video, I wanted to share with you what negative keywords are, why you would want to use them, and how to set them up inside of any of your advertising platforms, in this case using Google AdWords. Here is my video where I show you how to setup your conversion tracking for Google AdWords for ClickBank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbYHoGtDIVw&index=3&t=60s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNH0RJi21DWAXeCdCT1Lhy6 This is important but not necessary for your ads to run - however in order to determine what negative keywords to add, it would be very helpful to have conversions in place so that you can determine what clicks result in conversions and are high-quality, and what keywords should be added as negative since they are not adding any conversions. Basically, negative keywords are just the opposite of keywords - typing in the negative keywords into the search bar will cause your ad NOT to appear. You may be wondering why this could be useful since the goal of advertising is to SHOW our ads. Well, reason is, if you have phrase or broad match types for your keywords, chances are you are getting some completely irrelevant clicks. It would alright except for the fact that you are PAYING for these irrelevant clicks. So in order to increase our profits, we need to remove clicks that are worthless and increase clicks that bring value, right? Well, the way we do that is by adding negative keywords. They work exactly the same as regular keywords in terms of match types - so you can have exact, phrase, and broad match types for negative keywords as well. To illustrate, let's start with the exact negative match type. If you type in [monkeys] as the negative keyword (exactly like this, with the square brackets), then anyone typing in 'monkeys' EXACTLY in this way will NOT see your ad. Makes sense, right? Let's move over to the phrase negative match type. This one would probably be much more relevant for you in your business. Let's say you type in "monkeys" (just like this, with the quotation marks) as a negative keyword. In this case, as long as the WORD 'monkeys' is ANYWHERE in the search term that people type into the search bar, your ad will NOT show. Last but not least, the broad negative match type works just like the regular broad match type - if you type in monkeys (exactly like this without any other additions), then anyone typing in anything RELATED to monkeys will NOT show your ad. This could include search terms such as 'monkey bars', 'gorilla bars', 'what are monkeys', and so on... Knowing now what negative keywords are, you can see the value of adding them to your account, especially if you are getting tons of useless clicks. Make sure to take a look at the 'dimensions' tab and select 'search terms' to be able to see what people are typing in to see your ad - remember, the goal is to minimize useless clicks to your site so you don't pay for them.

For starters, let's start off with the basics - why should we use the postback URL? Well, because it's just more reliable than pixels sometimes. If you are adding a pixel to a site that has 1000 other pixels there from other members, you may have more luck just setting up a postback URL integration (server to server) between the third party tracking tool and the affiliate network. This is because the site could get slow, or, the pixel may just not fire, as is usually the case with ClickBank for some reason. So what a postback is, is basically a communication between a third party tracking tool and the affiliate network, in a way that the affiliate network, upon generating a sale, posts back that sale to the tracking tool which originated the click (thus the 'postback URL'). The way it does that is by tracing back the click ID that was generated via a specific tracking link, and attributing a sale to that link that contributed to the sale based on the click ID. A click ID is basically just a 'click number' that is generated as your visitors visit your landing page or whatever page you take them to. Just as a person receives a ticket number and waits in line for something in an important building, the same works here in that users generate this same 'ticket' upon clicking this link. As they carry this click ID from page to page, when a sale is made, the link that first generated that click ID would receive the sale show up. In my example, I use ClickMagick to show that once you select your affiliate network, you are given automatically a postback URL that you need to add to that affiliate network's back end. Once you do that, the affiliate network will know where it needs to attribute the sale to. And then with the use of the click ID setup, it will also know which specific tracking link to attribute the sale to. So YOU are the machine that creates these 'tickets' and allows users to create a click ID in order to track sales for yourself as they arrive. And that is what a postback URL/S2S conversion tracking is! That's it!

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ ***IF THERE ARE NO EXISTING QUERY STRINGS IN YOUR CLICKBANK AFFILIATE LINK (NOTHING WITH A QUESTION MARK (?)), YOU MUST WRITE '?' INSTEAD OF '&' IN THE UNIQUE SUBID FOR CLICKBANK IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY. Why use postback URL?: 0:08 How to setup the postback URL for ClickBank: 1:09 What's up?! In this video, I show you how to setup a postback URL with ClickBank using ClickMagick. This is basically a way for you to track sales, similar to using the pixel method we went over in a previous video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3rEn1k5oiI&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&index=11&t=32s), but more reliable, since ClickBank will literally feed the information over to ClickMagick regarding the transaction, including the amount of the sale, and taking into account all refunds, etc... The process is similar to what we have done in the previous 2 videos with Peerfly and MaxBounty, but a bit more complicated as it involves using a 'secret key'. So the first step then is to head over to your ClickBank account, go to settings, my site, and scroll all the way to the bottom where it says 'advanced tools', and click on 'edit'. It will immediately prompt you to enter a 'secret key' and agree to all the terms. Go ahead and say 'yes' to all the terms, as long as you assume the responsibility of understanding all of them. Then input any 'secret key' you want, which should contain 16 uppercase letters and/or numbers. For the purpose of this example, I set up mine to be 1234ABCD1234ABCD. After you do that, go back to your ClickMagick account, go to 'profile' on the top right corner, and input this very same secret key in the 'secret key' spot in the 'misc' section. That should be it for the secret key. Now you need to enter the instant notification URL, which can be found on your ClickMagick page when you type in 'clickbank' in the FAQ, and click on the first link you see. Scroll down a bit and you should see a ClickMagick URL unique to every individual, with an ID at the end. Copy and paste this URL into the 'instant notification URL' slot inside of ClickBank and click on 'save'. Go back down to this page, click on 'edit' again, and then click on 'verify IPIN'. It should be verified and you should be good to go for this part! The last thing you need to do is just type in ?tid=[clickid] at the end of your affiliate link for ClickBank and that should be it! Notice how in the video we put in & instead of ?, as that is what ClickMagick provides us, but you should put in ? if there are NO query strings on your current affiliate link already. After this that should be it! Now any sale you make should show up on your tracking link stats and you should know how many sales you made and for how much without needing to use pixels! That's it!

ClickMagick: What Is a Tracking Pixel and How to Set It Up (On ClickFunnels)

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is a tracking pixel?: 0:11 How it can benefit you: 0:51 How to set it up: 1:43 Testing our pixel setup: 3:52 How to setup pixels on other pages: 5:13 Hello everyone! In this video on ClickMagick, I tell what a tracking pixel is, how it benefits you, and how to set it up on ClickFunnels. Don't want to see my face or hear me talk? No problem! Check out my blog at effort4success.com. So what is a tracking pixel? Well, a pixel is a tiny itsy-bitsy 1x1 transparent point on any webpage. Whenever you input a certain tracking pixel on a page and someone goes on that page, our tracking pixel will 'fire up' and let us know that this page has been reached. Why is this important? Well because usually, the only way someone can go past a sales page or a landing page is if they provide you some information, such as name, email, etc... or actually pay. So by providing that and landing on your thank you or thank you sales page (click here to see how I created my landing page or click here to see how I made my thank you page using ClickFunnels), the pixel fires up and tells you that this person has successfully subscribed to you or bought something! This helps us because if we know how far each of our customers goes in our funnel, we can determine what our strength(s) and weakness(es) is (are) in that funnel. If for example, our landing page conversion rate is 100%, that means that 100% of the people who visit your page also subscribe. Amazing results!! If the rate is 1% or lower however, then that means that only 1 out of 100 people subscribe to you or provide their information. This could mean that we need to make some adjustments to our landing page since so many people are simply leaving our page. We can apply this pixel to see who goes through our first landing page, then decides to learn more about the product by going to the sales pages, and finally by actually purchasing the product. So let's get into it. 1) Log into your ClickMagick account and click on the 'links' tab. 2) To the right of the campaign you want to track, click on the gear icon and select 'track conversions'. 3) Scroll down to where ClickMagick provides you with action, engagement, and sales pixels. So now we have come to the pixels provided to us by ClickMagick. What we have to do now is simply insert these pixels into the header (or footer if it screws up your ClickFunnels page) tracking code of your page. So if I want to track how many people subscribed on my main landing page, I will put in the 'action pixel' on the page following my landing page - my thank you page. You continue the process by setting the engagement pixel and then the sales pixel on the page FOLLOWING the page of which results you want to track. If you are an affiliate marketer, unfortunately the sales and order pages will not be under your control - so you may have to message the vendors of the products you are marketing and ask them to paste the tracking pixel provided to you by ClickMagick onto their pages. After we input everything in, we should be able to see what percentage of visitors to your site end up buying. You should fix and perhaps test further the landing pages in whatever percentage conversion seems low - either action, engagement, or sales. Because in our example we did not have control of the sales nor order confirmation pages, we can only insert the pixel into our landing page thank you page. You can check out this video to see how to insert your tracking pixels onto ClickBank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3rEn1k5oiI&index=11&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion, although it may not be 100% reliable all the time. As you can see, I was the only person who clicked on my own landing page, so that so far, 100% of the people who clicked that link signed up (I signed up to demonstrate). That is all folks! Now you know how you can benefit from tracking pixels and how to set them up!

Google AdWords: How to Create a Merchant Center Shopping Campaign
 
14:30
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is a Google shopping campaign?: 0:07 How to open and sign up to the Merchant Center: 1:19 How to add your products to the shopping campaign: 4:33 How to link the Merchant Center to Google AdWords: 12:25 Link to the product specifications article: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/7052112?visit_id=1-636306314821168777-784961415&rd=1 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to create your Google Shopping Campaign. This is a pretty cool way of selling your PHYSICAL products since the pictures that show up in addition to your ad are much more eye-catching than the regular text ads we have been working on in the previous videos. The way we start this is by first creating a Google Merchant Center account by going to the 'tools' tab in Google AdWords and then clicking on 'Google Merchant Center'. Follow the steps to sign up to the account - you will need to input your website, contact information, etc... You will also need to verify and claim your website by inputting a code that Google gives you onto your site. My site is hosted on Wordpress.com, so I just input the code provided into an area in Wordpress specifically dedicated to Google claiming and verifying the site. After you verify and claim your site, just click on 'verify and claim' and if done properly, your Google Merchant Center account should be successfully created. In order to actually input the products into your campaign, you will need to click on the plus sign under 'feeds'. You will basically have the option to get an excel file that Google already provided for you and can start filling in the blanks to setup your products. A few things you will need to include are the product name, description, ID, website and image links, etc... If you are unsure as to what each of those mean, check out the link I have provided to you earlier: https://support.google.com/merchants/answer/7052112?visit_id=1-636306314821168777-784961415&rd=1. This will tell you exactly what each section means, what is required or not required, and what options are available for each section. Also make sure that the price that you insert matches the currency of the country you have selected. After you do this, the excel file will automatically save, so you just need to go back to your Merchant Center and click on 'fetch data'. This will kind of 'upload' the data that you just input into the Center. You may need to refresh several times for it to upload, but don't just sit there and wait for it to load. When I created my first campaign this way I waited for a good hour or two thinking that the results will automatically update, but all I had to do was click refresh to have it updated within 10 seconds! Now that you have your account setup and all your products ready, it is time to actually create your campaign. To do that you need to be in your Google Merchant Center account and on the top right corner click on 'account linking'. On this screen, you will be able to link this account with your Google AdWords account and it should be instantaneous. You can then click on 'create new campaign' and just do the exact same things you have learned in the previous videos - set your bid/budget/name, etc... You can also create a campaign in Google AdWords directly by clicking on 'add new campaign' and then choosing the 'shopping' option. You cannot add products directly in your AdWords account so you will need to go back to your Google Merchant Center and update your excel sheet if you want to make any changes. They should show up within 1-3 days. What you can do in Google AdWords however is create sections for your products to be able to categorize them easier. But aside from that, any changes you want to make will have to be done in the excel sheet. That's it!

Now that we did some videos and posts on ClickFunnels, we can begin a new project - ClickMagick! Hooray!! If you came a bit late, and missed our posts on ClickFunnels, no problem! You can check out what ClickFunnels is right here, and then go from there. So what is ClickMagick? Well, what is a test? It's a way to determine whether what you are doing could be done better. It is a way to determine whether your landing/thank you/sales pages are performing as well as they should be, or need some tweaking. There are two (2) main benefits of ClickMagick. The first is that you can obviously track your progress. It tells you STATISTICS of how many people visited your site, how many clicked your action button, and how many went further and further. It will allow you to gauge where you are and where your main weakness is - are people really loving your landing page, but then just don't proceed further? Or is no one clicking your action button on your landing page at ALL? Perhaps some major renovations are in order! These statistics are absolutely CRUCIAL if you want to become successful at affiliate marketing - there is no way around hours and hours and hours of testing, and figuring out the page style that best fits with your audience. The second benefit of ClickMagick is that this software also allows you to mask your ugly affiliate links. Furthermore, if you use that naked affiliate link, it is possible it is blacklisted as there are many affiliates that may try to send out that link to others. Therefore that link will be blacklisted and people will not receive your email in the first place... With ClickMagick, you will be able to set-up your own website name (you can create your domain using any domain provider, such as Namecheap, and then integrate it with ClickMagick), which is more likely to get you sales. So now you have an idea of what ClickMagick is and how it can benefit you. Stay tuned as we follow through with this and integrate this with ClickFunnels and go over ways to utilize this to it's best capacity. Don't want to see my face or hear me talk? No problem!

GetResponse: How to Set Up Your Autoresponders
 
12:04
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Creating a new campaign: 0:58 Setting up your autoresponders: 2:06 Viewing our autoresponders: 8:16 Toggling subscriber email option on or off: 9:30 Hey everyone! In this video, I show you how to setup your first campaign and autoresponder sequence within GetResponse for your affiliate marketing success! I also show you how to setup confirmation e-mails when people sign up on your landing page, and how to delete them. Confirmation e-mails may filter out people who are serious in your product versus those that are not, but at the same time makes them take an extra step before getting on your list - clicking that additional 'subscribe' button. Here are the steps for creating your autoresponders on GetResponse: 1. Click 'create campaign' at the top right of your page in GetResponse in the drop-down menu where it says 'your current campaign'. 2. Name your new campaign and click 'create campaign'. These names are stored in the GetResponse database, so you MAY have a name that is already taken by someone else. Not to worry - simply pick another name for your campaign or add some underscores or numbers to it. In our example, the campaign name 'diabetes' was taken, so we decided to name our campaign '_diabetes1_'. 3. So now we have created our campaign. Our next step is to click on 'messages' at the top and select 'create autoresponder'. 4. Keep the option on 'time-based'. Select the day you want to set up your autoresponder on. Day 0 means on the day the person subscribes to your list, and you can either send the email right away, after a few hours, or before a certain deadline time. You can also choose whether you want to send out emails during any days of the week in particular and leave out the other days. After you scroll to the bottom, click on 'create new email'. 5. Put in a name to remember this message by at the top in the 'message name' field, and put in the name that you subscribers will see in the 'subject' field. Create something catchy, since subscribers will click on this based on 2 things - who the email is coming from, and what the title is. When you are done, click on 'next step'. I would also recommend setting up your own private email and making the email come from there, since if it's coming from a free email like yahoo or gmail, it may immediately land in the spam folder. We will do this using Namecheap in one of our future posts. You can also personalize the email by adding the subscriber's full name, first name, or last name. You can do that by typing in double square brackets, followed by what it is you want to address them by, and then closing the brackets. So if I wanted to address my subscribers by their first name, I would say something like 'Hey [[firstname]], here is the email!'. 6. Select a template you want to have for your autoresponder. You can either select from one of the categories, or make one completely from scratch, and even have no pictures or template at all. 7. Make the necessary changes to your email and then click on 'next step'. 8. Now that you have finished your autoresponder for that day, you can click on 'save and publish'! That is it! You have finished your autoresponder for that day, and just repeat the exact same process to create additional emails for the other days as well. Stay tuned for our next videos as we integrate ClickFunnels with GetResponse and get your landing pages officially setup and ready to go!

ClickFunnels: How to Make a Blog In ClickFunnels
 
09:56
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ One thing to keep in mind: 0:23 How to create a blog in ClickFunnels: 0:50 What's up?! In this video, I show you how you can create a blog within your ClickFunnels account. I have actually thought about making a blog in ClickFunnels, but just wasn't sure how to start. Which template can I use? How can I add more posts? How to I connect the pages? But the process is actually simpler than you may think - just it may get tedious if you are constantly adding new blog posts. Depending on your blog layout, you may need to create a new funnel step for each new blog post you want to put up, which as mentioned may tire you out. It's definitely not as simple as clicking on the 'post now' button in Wordpress, but can still get the job done and look Professional while at it. What a lot of people don't know is that there is actually a blog template already available inside ClickFunnels in the 'misc' section when you select the page template to put up. This makes it extremely easy for you to start a blog on ClickFunnels. After you use that template provided, you would just clone the section of the blog over and over and over again on either the same page or by cloning the entire funnel step over and over again. You would then set up the links within all of those steps to link to an 'about us' or whatever other section you want to put into your site. If you have any specific questions, let me know and I'll be more than happy to help out! That's it!

ClickMagick: How to Add Tracking Pixels to ClickBank

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Where to find your ClickMagick pixels and where they go: 0:21 Adding action pixel on our ClickFunnels page: 1:22 Adding engagement/sales pixels on ClickBank: 2:12 Testing our pixels: 5:41 Hey everyone! In this video, I show you how to add those tracking pixels to our ClickBank order form and order form confirmation pages. You have no control over those ClickBank pages, so it's not as easy as simply copying and pasting the code into your ClickFunnels page. If you want a review of tracking pixels, check out my previous video where I explain it in more detail (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kduytjtlAoA&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&index=5). Remember that the names 'action', 'engagement', and 'sales' tracking pixel don't mean anything special - they are just names. A name to you could mean different things than a name to someone else. So you don't have to put the pixels on the same exact pages as everyone else. You can put your sales pixel on your home page for all I care, as long as you KNOW what that sales pixel firing symbolizes and what importance it has for YOU. Given that, let's assume we are using our engagement pixel to track people visiting our order form page, and the sales pixel to track people visiting our thank you order form page. We need to copy the code by going to 'track conversions' on the little gear icon next to our ClickMagick tracking link, and paste it into the ClickMagick 'integrated sales reporting' section at the bottom after you go to 'settings' and 'my site' on ClickBank. Select 'tracking pixels' from the drop-down menu and pick 'order form' for our engagement pixel, and 'order form confirmation' for our sales pixel. We simply copy and paste the pixels provided to us by ClickMagick into these areas. We do however, need to remove the HTML portion of those pixels and only add the 'https://yourdomain.com/etc...' part, as ClickBank automatically puts in the necessary information themselves. You would also need to add an 's' at the end of your 'http' in order for the pixel to be confirmed. Otherwise, it looks like it is an insecure pixel and ClickBank will not accept it.

Bing Ads: How to Create Your First Campaign
 
16:11
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Going over the campaign level: 0:51 Going over the ad group level: 4:51 Going over the ad level: 7:02 Hey all! In this video, I cover how to set up an entire Bing Ads campaign from scratch to finish starting from the campaign level, going to the ad group, then finishing with the ad itself. The settings are pretty much the same with some really minor differences with Google AdWords in certain areas, such as split testing, tracking, conversion tracking, etc... The interface and layout for creating a new campaign is also a bit different, so I cover how to set everything up for you here. - Campaign level: the first thing you will see after creating your Bing Ads account is an interface that looks extremely similar to Google AdWords. You will need to click on 'create campaign' and then select the objective of your campaign - similar to what we did with our Facebook Ads playlist (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMmQulZxhxM&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hPG5J4MiEPg6cd7FRrYScd0&index=1). For the purpose of this video, I go with the simple website clicks goal, but you can really select whatever matches your business, and if you select 'conversions', you will need to make sure you will be able to input the conversion pixel on the page you need, something we will do in a later tutorial as well. After you do that, you will need to insert a campaign name, budget, language, location, and targeting. For the targeting option, you can select whether you want to target people who LIVE in a specific country you are targeting, or people who SEARCH for your country. This difference is important to understand because they are 2 completely different things. Targeting people who LIVE in the country is just that - if you are targeting people in the US, only people living right now in the US will see your ad. If you are targeting people SEARCHING for your ad, then your audience doesn't have to live in the US - they can merely type in any keyword you have included in your list, and add the country in the search bar. You may be wondering what the point of this is and how it can benefit you, but it can actually be very useful if you are promoting a tourist agency and want to target people who want a tour in a specific country without necessary using that as keywords. - Ad group level: the difference between the campaigns is all the things you have just edited - location, targeting, budget, etc... the difference between ad groups is the keywords. So after you create your campaign, you need to add keywords to your ad group so that when you create ads, those ads will trigger based on the keywords that are typed in. You would also need to input your website URL here (no idea why since that should go in the ad level), but aside from that you should be good to go! - Ad level: this is the final part of creating your first Bing Ads campaign. You would basically input your headline, URL, tracking URL (we will get into that in another tracking video), text, etc... to actually attract the audience to go to your site based on the keywords you have input. Later on, we will go over how to quickly split test all your ads to determine which copy works best over the other ones, but you should be done creating your first ad after this! That's it!

Facebook Ads: How to Create Your First Campaign
 
19:53
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Creating first campaign: 0:33 Creating first ad set: 3:46 Creating first ad: 9:24 Welcome! In this video, I show you how to create your first campaign/ad set/ad in Facebook, just like we did in our Google AdWords series (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PgkIyKhBjw&index=1&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNH0RJi21DWAXeCdCT1Lhy6&t=25s). You can either make your first campaign using your personal account, or using a Business Facebook account, which we will delve into in the next video. For the purposes of creating a simple first ad, we will be creating it from our main account. What you will have to do is click on little drop down menu on the top-right of your Facebook and click on 'create ad'. This will take you directly to the ad menu and list all the steps required to create an ad and walk you through the campaign, ad set, and ad creation process. Our first step is to create the campaign in Facebook. The campaigns all differ based on their 'objective', which is literally the goal you set for your campaign - is it create just brand awareness so that your brand is simply known to everyone, or is it to generate leads/conversions? You can select your option here. You may also be wondering why it is that 'traffic' and 'conversions' are two separate goals - isn't the point of traffic to generate conversions? Well not necessarily - Facebook has so much customer information, that if you select 'conversions' as the traffic objective, it will actually optimize your campaigns by reaching those people that are most likely to convert - not just click on your ads. However, you MUST be able to insert a pixel if this is what you are doing, but do not be alarmed, it is incredibly easy to do and we will go over it in a later tutorial. You can also check the 'split test' button and that will allow you to create a split test on the spot when creating your ad set. Do not worry - even if you do not select it, you will be able to duplicate and split test your ads after you create them. Your next step will be to create your ad sets in Facebook. Ad sets differ from each other based on the demographics of your audience, location, and interests. You can also set the bid, budget, and device/placement preference here. We will go over into audience insights in a later tutorial as well, so for now just input anything relevant to your product into the 'detailed targeting' field, as that is a large portion of what makes Facebook ads so darn effective, and is a study in and of itself. Your last step after you create the 'ad set' in Facebook is to create the ad. Here you would input the ad copy, images, videos, links, whatever it is you have that makes your ad go round and round! Here is where your copywriting skills would come in handy. Ads differ solely based on your image/videos you put up and the ad copy, so you can duplicate these and split test the different results those provide. That's it!

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Copying the GetResponse integration code: 0:28 Integration on ClickFunnels: 0:48 Integrating individual ClickFunnels pages (important): 1:40 Testing our integration: 3:04 Welcome back everyone! In our previous video, we setup our first autoresponder sequence on GetResponse so that people who join our subscriber list through our ClickFunnels landing page can have information sent out to them automatically! Therefore, in this video, I wanted to show you how to integrate GetResponse with ClickFunnels so that those emails can start coming out for you immediately! I also test it out on my email to make sure that the email setup does indeed work. Here are the steps I take: 1. On the top-right corner of your GetResponse, click on 'my account' and select 'account details'. 2. Click on the tab near the bottom called 'API & OAuth'. Copy the API code that is presented to you here. Save this code for now. You will need it shortly when we go into our ClickFunnels! 3. Log in to your ClickFunnels account and click on 'account'. Select 'integrations. from the drop-down menu. 4. Click on 'add new integration', create a nickname for your new integration, and under 'choose services', select 'GetResponse'. 5. Input the API key we have copied earlier from GetResponse. Click on 'create integration' when you have done that! So now we have successfully integrated GetResponse with ClickFunnels as a whole - however, we now need to integrate each page individually. Go to the edit version of each landing page that you want to integrate with GetResponse. 6. At the top of the editing tabs, click on the 'email' button. 7. To the right of the 'integrations' option, scroll down to the new GetResponse integration you have created. It should be identified by the nickname you have selected earlier. To the right of 'action', select 'add to campaign', and to the right of 'list to add', select the campaign that you want to add the people who subscribe to. In our example it was diabetes, so I will select the diabetes campaign. 8. Click save and repeat the process for all the landing pages that you want to be integrated. Remember, this has to be done on macro level, but also on an individual landing page basis.

Google AdWords: What Are Exact, Phrase, and Broad Match Types?
 
05:52
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is the exact match type?: 1:00 What is the phrase match type?: 2:04 What is the broad match type?: 2:57 Hey all! In this short video, I explain the different Google AdWords match types, starting with exact, phrase, and broad. This is important to consider not only for your traffic quality, but also for the cost of your clicks - exact match types are the most expensive as they are the most targeted, and the broad match types are the least expensive since they are the least targeted. But what is good traffic without a targeted customer base? - Exact match type: you can create these with square brackets around the word you want to be exact. So if my keyword is [monkeys], then my ad will ONLY show to people who type in 'monkeys', with NO spelling errors, NO additional words, and just the EXACT word. - Phrase match type: this is similar to exact in that the words you list here MUST be present in order for your ad to trigger. However, there can more words surrounding these phrase types in order for your ad to show. To add a phrase type, you need to add quotation marks around your word(s). So if my keyword is 'flying monkeys' as a phrase match type, people typing in 'flying cool monkeys' will NOT see my ad, but people typing in 'cool flying monkeys today' will. As long as the words are in the search form, your ad will show! - Broad match type: this match type will get you the biggest number of impressions and possibly clicks as well. Not only does the broad match type include any form of misspellings of your keyword, but it will also trigger when someone types in anything even RELATED to your keywords. So if my broad match type keyword is 'monkeys', then perhaps something like 'gorillas' or 'orangutans' will show as well. You want to be extremely careful with this match type because you may get a ton of clicks that are totally unrelated to your keyword, but the Google Ad system will consider it to be so. It has happened to me in the past, and unless you sit at your computer all day hammering out negative keywords, I would not suggest the broad match type. Speaking of negative keywords, they are important so that words that you DON'T want to trigger your ad won't show. So if I am talking about a 30 day challenge for YouTube videos, I may want to put in 'health', 'fitness', and 'weight loss' as negative keywords for this keyword. More on this later. That's it!

Bing Ads: How to Setup Conversion Tracking
 
06:51
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Where to find the conversion tab in Bing Ads: 0:55 What to do with the code provided: 1:25 Creating a conversion goal: 2:57 Testing our conversion pixel: 5:53 Hello! In this video, I show you how to setup your Bing Ads conversion tracking using the UET tag and conversion goal. This is pretty much the same as with Google AdWords, but with a few adjustments. First of all, you will need to go to the 'conversion tracking' tab on your bottom left in Bing Ads, click on the 'UET tags' tab that pops up, and click on 'create UET tag'. This is basically the Bing code that you would need to include on every single one of your pages - kind of like we did with our Facebook pixel where we input the pixel on all of our pages and then just created a conversion goal with the website we want to track. After you create your 'UET tag', you can either copy the javascript or the non-javascript code to the header of all of your webpages. The javascript worked for me, so that's the code I used myself. Next, you will need to create a conversion goal. You just setup a pixel on ALL of your pages - how does Bing know which conversions you want to measure? If you have a funnel with a sales page, thank you page, order page, order confirmation, etc... Bing will need to know which one you want to track conversions on that will appear in your columns. So we need to click on 'create conversion goal' and follow the steps. First we will need to create a name for the goal, and then click on 'destination URL'. I would then say 'URL contains' and input only the domain name followed by the sub-ID's for my site without the 'www' or 'http', etc... This is because you don't know what the person may type in to reach your site, so by putting those in, you are limiting yourself to only those exact URL's that are typed in. You would then just basically fill in the blanks. Select the UET tag that you just created that corresponds to the pages you have input the code in. Set a value for each of your conversions. Is each conversion worth $20? $10? Also, every time someone buys a product, is each PRODUCT counted as a conversion, or regardless of how many products a unique visitor buys, it remains 1 conversion? These are some of the options you will need to fill out as you see fit for your business. The conversion window is basically the window of time your conversion can still be tracked for the person(s) buying. So if you set your conversion window to 1 day and someone visits your site and buys only after TWO days, you will not see a conversion recorded for that person. If you set your conversion window to the maximum 90 days, then someone who buys your product after 90 days of going to your site will count a conversion for you as well under that campaign. After you fill all these out, you should be able to have everything up and running for your conversion tracking. I use a tool called 'UET tag helper (by Bing Ads)' as a Google chrome extension to help me determine whether the tag is input correctly or not. Just open the page where your tag should be, open the tag helper, hit refresh, and if setup properly, your UET tag helper should have a little green square with a number on the bottom left indicating that there is a correct pixel setup on that page.

How to Setup Your Private Email (2 Months FREE Using Namecheap)
 
04:23
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why should you setup your private email?: 0:06 Getting your free private email on Namecheap: 0:40 Adding your new email into GetResponse: 3:08 Hey all! In this video, I show you how to quickly set up your private email using NameCheap, and then set it up on your GetResponse. It is a very simple and easy process to do, but extremely important if you want your autoresponders to be delivered to people... if you use a free @gmail or @yahoo account, it may end up in their spam mailbox. Namecheap not only offers free domains, but also can offer you a free private email for 2 months, and that should be more than enough time to determine whether you want to actually continue with the offer you are promoting and thus needing the email or not. Here are the steps to setting up your private domain and registering with GetResponse: 1. Login to your Namecheap account or go to 'account' and then 'dashboard'. 2. Click on 'manage' to the right of the domain you have created. I assume you have already setup a domain on Namecheap, or if not, read this post to learn how to do it. 3. Scroll to the bottom where it says 'private email'. Click on 'buy now'. Do not worry - it is completely free for the first 2 months. 4. Select any plan (I recommend the private at first for $12.87/year) and click on '2-month free trial'. Click 'add to cart' when done. 5. Click on 'use a domain I already own with Namecheap' if you did as we have in this post, or click on 'purchase a new domain' and just follow the steps to buy a new domain. As mentioned previously, I assume you have already setup your own domain, so I will continue by clicking 'use a domain I already own...'. 6. Select the domain you want to have the private email associated with, and click on 'continue' on the right hand side. 7. Lastly, select the email address you want to have. You can take the email '[email protected]' for free, or create your own for $0.33/month. I think having the 'admin' in your email is more than enough, but $0.33 for a customizable name is also a terrific bargain. 8. Log in to your GetResponse account, and click on 'my account' and 'account details' on the top right corner. 9. Click on the 'from email addresses' tab on the left, and then select 'add new address'. Input your email address in the field, verify it, and BAM! Don't want to see my face or hear me talk? No problem! Check out my blog at effort4success.com!

How to Cloak Your Affiliate Links Using ClickMagick

If you are interested in ClickMagick, or want to learn more, feel free to check out their free EXCLUSIVE 30-day trial under my affiliate link at: http://www.bestlinktracker.com/ClickMagick/yt-cm-cloaking If you are interested in a click tracking course specific to ClickMagick, check out my 4 hour step-by-step course with a $20 discount on Udemy now: https://www.udemy.com/the-basics-and-essentials-of-conversion-tracking/?couponCode=FORYOUTUBE And if you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What is link cloaking?: 0:16 *Important words of caution: 1:56 How to cloak your (affiliate) links: 5:07 What's up?! In this video, I wanted to show you how to cloak your affiliate links, or really any types of links you may have when promoting other products. As you well know, when you promote products from ClickBank, Peerfly, Maxbounty, etc... you are given a pretty nasty affiliate link that you would hesitate to promote anywhere. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to share my promotions with anyone with the URL "www.mb104.com/afflakjsdlfjlkajskfkj12341234"... Sure, you can use bitly or tinyurl... but that doesn't help your problem. Those links still use ugly and still have a reputation of being nasty spammy and scammy affiliate links. So what we do in this video is purchase a domain name from Namecheap, and then use that domain name on our ClickMagick tracking link. That way, when people click on your new cloaked link, that link stays in the browser URL... so if my domain name is www.mydomain.com, then this is the URL that will stay up in the browser URL window after I access this site. It won't be anything else if I cloak it. *A few considerations for you to note though before I start explaining how to do this: 1) You do not need to use ClickMagick. This is the only link tracking software I am familiar with, but you can use any link tracking platform that can get this job done the same. Use the same steps and logic I'm applying here to your own system to cloak your links. But I use ClickMagick because it has all the features you could possibly need and I haven't had a single complaint since I started using it 8 months ago. 2) Some PPC traffic networks like Google AdWords do not allow link cloaking. This is because there are people who buy a domain, submit a site for approval, and when it's disapproved, they simply try again with a new domain. They keep doing this until possibly, that campaign gets temporarily approved. For this reason, cloaking links is not allowed under their terms of use. So if you are planning on using cloaking in networks such as Google AdWords or Bing Ads, do it at your own risk. 3) Some OFFERS you promote may not allow cloaking and state so explicitly. If that's the case... don't cloak. If you get caught, you will forfeit all your earnings and possibly get kicked out out of that network. 4) Some OFFERS you promote may not explicitly say that cloaking is not allowed, but will take measure to prevent it. In such cases, when using a cloaked link, you will see a white screen instead of a website. That means the seller doesn't allow cloaking and you are only allowed to use the affiliate link, or mask a link but with a redirect, which isn't that bad. Now that we have this out of the way, I can show you how to cloak your affiliate links. The first thing you would need to do is to have a domain name. If you already have one, great, just do the same steps I would take to set everything up with ClickMagick as I do on Namecheap. If not, you can purchase a very inexpensive domain name from Namecheap for as low as 66 cents (Canadian) per year... After you do that, go to 'DNS settings' for that domain, and under CNAME DNS, type in 'www.clkmg.com', and for A record, type in the IP address 50.97.212.250, which is one of the two IP addresses provided to you by ClickMagick. You can use the other one if you prefer, which you can find in the ClickMagick FAQ upon looking up 'CNAME DNS'. Now all you need to do is head in to ClickMagick, and select 'domain manager' from the 'tools' dropdown. Input your domain name exactly as it is, and select 'cloaking' from the options presented.

ClickFunnels: How to Create a Contact/Feedback Form
 
07:52
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Hey all! In this video, I show you how to create a contact us/feedback form on your ClickFunnels account. It's a very easy thing to do and all you need to do is add the 'input form' and 'text area' elements to require your viewers to enter their important contact details and the comments they want to share. In the 'input form' field, you can choose what personal detail about your visitors you want your visitors to have to input, whether it's name, address, phone number, email, etc... There are a lot of options available for you to choose from, and if you find you want to include something not on the list, you can add the 'custom type' option and add whatever question you like. You can also customize these fields to look the way you like them to in the 'advanced options' and 'themes' tab of that same element. These will let you adjust the way the input field looks itself as well as the size and customization of the letters within those fields. The 'text area' field allows your visitors to input any manual text they want in there. This is the area in which they will type in their feedback or comments for your 'contact us' form. After your visitors fill in this information, you can access everything from your ClickFunnels contacts list. If you prefer to receive an email after someone inputs all these fields in, check out my previous video on that where I show you how to integrate Zapier with ClickFunnels so you can do just that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA5V4UmYjHA&index=53&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNASorSJ04itRrhsnZ00x5u&t=25s Keep in mind that if a user uses the exact same email to complete the form several times, you will only see all these details from the first request - all the other times the form was filled will not be shown to you and so you may want to make sure you add some statement beneath the confirm button to let people know not to send in multiple questions/comments using the same email. In addition, there is no instant confirmation after someone fills in the fields and clicks the confirm button. So you need to make sure you redirect the visitors to a thank you page after they are done, or to some other website. Just let them know that their request was processed and they should receive a reply to their comment/feedback/question soon. That's it!

What Is a Facebook Messenger Ad and How to Set It Up - Easy Step-by-Step Walkthrough!
 
12:15
What's up?! In this video, I show you how to create a Facebook Messenger ad. This is not to be confused with the Facebook Messenger placement where your ad shows up in people's Messenger messages. Although a Messenger ad can definitely show up there as well. The first think you have to do is go to your Power Editor and click on 'Create New Campaign'. The options here are the same as for any other campaign objective - enter your title for your campaign, ad set, and ad, enter your bidding, and select your objective. Of course you will be selecting 'Messages' as the objective for this campaign. After you do that, click on 'Save to Draft' and your campaign should be layed out for you, so you just have to go back in and fill in the blanks at the ad set and ad levels. So once you do that, go to the 'ad set' tab and fill in the details for your audience. You can select the age, gender, interest groups, etc... for placement I would start off by having my ads show up only on News Feed and Messenger, and then branch out later on. The first option that you have about 'Sponsored Messages' will only be available to you if you have messaged someone in the past, since you can only send out these messages to people that you already established a connection with and messaged. If you haven't, that's no problem - just make sure to select the 'Clicks to Messenger' option then. Once that is done, the last thing we have to do is do the changes at the 'ad' level. The first part of it is the same as for any other campaign objective - you would enter the text, the headline text, add an image, and change the call-to-action button. But the difference between Messenger ads and others is that you can change what you want to show up in the messages when someone clicks on your ad. You have 3 options here - you can send out an automatic text & image, text & video, or just plain text. You can then customize the replies that the users would write out to you in the form of little bubbles. You can add several and these are replies that customers will automatically be able to click on upon clicking on your ad. You can also add a chat bot to Facebook and therefore go a step above and have a reply in place for the customers' replies... But I won't be going over that in this video. Also, instead of reply options, you can select to have a button in your message so that people can click on to perform some action (or simply go to your website). Just remember than when you click on the 'JSON' version of that editor, all your data within this page will reset back to default and you will have to redo it - so just make sure you click on 'Done' and are happy with your changes before experimenting - Facebook is still a bit glitchy in this area. The other cool thing that you can also do is personalize your message and have your message sent out to people with their first name, last name, or both in place. It just adds a nice little unique touch that can make a difference and make the interaction a bit more personal. After you do that, you are done! Your ad should be sent for your review and should start running right away after it's been approved. If your ad is still flagged for some reason even though you know everything is filled out, try to log out and back in and keep trying to submit the ad - as mentioned it does get a bit glitchy and you just have to keep trying to save it and hope it works. Worst case scenario you can delete that campaign and start fresh. But it happened to me once that even though I had all my details in place, that campaign still would refuse to save. Either way, I hope you found the video useful and this is a great way to connect with people on a more personal level, especially those that are farther down your funnel and/or you would like to sell high-ticket items to.

ClickMagick: How to Integrate Custom Domain With Namecheap (Using CNAME DNS)

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why are we using this method?: 0:07 Namecheap side integration: 0:25 ClickMagick side integration: 4:11 Testing to see if it works: 7:54 Hey all! In my previous video on buying a custom domain and integrating with ClickMagick (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oa04qOqbC7s&t=28s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&index=2), we have used 'method 1' to connect our custom domain to ClickMagick so that we would be able to generate a custom tracking link for our... you guessed it! Tracking! Unfortunately, that method has proven to be unreliable and ClickMagick has noticed that, so in this video, I show you how to setup your custom domain using 'method 3', AKA CNAME DNS in order for you to have your custom tracking links available! If you have setup your custom domain previously using 'method 1', first thing we will need to do is to just erase that from our domain manager in ClickMagick and delete the redirect from Namecheap - basically start all over. Our first step would be to head over to Namecheap, and input whatever host name you want for your tracking link. Don't worry about showing crazy tracking links to people such as 'track.yourdomain.com', or 'crazymonkey.yourdomain.com' (the first part of that is the 'host name') because if you don't cloak your link, that URL won't show up in the bar at the top - the tracking link is designed purely to track clicks on your site. It may flash for a second or so at most, but the URL that stays is the one that you input originally. Anyway, in this example, I am using 'track.yourdomain.com', but you can use 'www.yourdomain.com' as well. If you ALREADY have a website setup with the 'www' hostname, then you can just add the additional hostname that is NOT 'www'... such as 'track'. Select "CNAME' for the first option, and input your host name, followed by the following value for ClickMagick: either www.clkmg.com for tracking links, or www.clkmr.com for rotators. Don't confuse the two - rotators have more customization options and are generally used for people SELLING clicks to track amount of clicks specifically. Tracking links and split testing is mainly used for people BUYING clicks in order to track conversions and overall effectiveness of the landing/sales pages. If you have a website set up already and just wanted to install the tracking link here, you are done then for the Namecheap section here. However, if you also want to setup your website to show with NO host name at all, add another redirect link, select the 'A record' type from the first menu option on the left, input '@' for the hostname, and input this ClickMagick IP address for tracking links: 50.97.212.250; and this one for rotators: 50.97.212.251. That should cover our Namecheap section for the CNAME DNS setup. Now all we have to do is head back over to ClickMagick, click on 'domain manager' on the top right menu option, and input your new domains that you input into Namecheap here. So if you wrote down 'www' for the host name on Namecheap, write down 'www.yourdomain.com' here in domain manager. You may also want to add the URL just for your domain name without any hostnames, such as 'yourdomain.com'. If you check the 'cloak' option, then your tracking link will also be the link that people see upon landing on your page. If you say 'no' to cloaking, then the URL that people will see is the URL that you listed down, basically your naked affiliate link. We will go over how to change THAT link in a later video where we go over CloudFlare integration. Click 'save and continue' and you should be good to go now - upon giving anyone that tracking link, they will land on your site and the clicks will track! That's it! That's how you do a CNAME DNS integration with ClickMagick using Namecheap!

Facebook Ads: 2 Ways to Make Sure Your Ad Image Meets the 20% Text Requirements
 
04:38
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why do I need these tools?: 0:14 1st tool: 1:10 2nd tool: 2:10 Hey all! In this video, I show you the 2 tools I use to ensure that my image stays within the 20% text boundary rule Facebook has. Basically Facebook doesn't allow images with over 20% text on them, so before you put an image up, it's a good idea to check it on these tools to make sure IF your ad get disapproved, it's not for this reason! Let's go over these tools one by one: - 1st tool: http://www.social-contests.com/check-image/ This is probably a tool you have already seen on YouTube. Problem is, it's definitely not accurate. What it basically is, is a 'grid-checker' where you can highlight all of your areas on the Facebook image which contain text, and it will tell you what proportion of the image that text occupies. The problem is that you may have a tiny snippet of text on one grid and would still have to select to text... and what I see people doing is adjusting their text to fit within the 20% grid area. However, simply doing that will not work for you - Facebook doesn't have 'grids' when they are looking at the text requirements, but they do see the percentage of text occupying the image. So a more accurate tool would be the following on... - 2nd tool: https://www.facebook.com/ads/tools/text_overlay This one gives you a flat-out 'yes' or 'no' answer when it comes to checking the text on your images. This is the tool I like to use first since it will tell me right away if I'm within the 20% boundary. It will either say 'yes', 'low score', 'medium score', or 'high score'. Those basically mean that you should either reduce the text on your image drastically or by just a bit. To see exactly where you stand, this is where I would go back to the 1st tool and see how far away from the mark I'm at. It's better to ensure your ads follow guidelines first before submitting and getting rejected! Remember, the disapprovals do count against you in Facebook Ads and they keep track of them... so make sure you set everything up properly the very first time! That's it!

ClickMagick: How to Track PeerFly Sales

Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ ***IF THERE ARE NO EXISTING QUERY STRINGS IN YOUR PEERFLY AFFILIATE LINK (NOTHING WITH A QUESTION MARK (?)), YOU MUST WRITE '?' INSTEAD OF '&' IN THE UNIQUE SUBID FOR PEERFLY IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK PROPERLY. Introduction/our offer/tracking link & what it does: 0:00 How to setup PeerFly postback URL: 0:41 Hey all! In this video, I wanted to show you how to track sales on PeerFly using ClickMagick. As in the previous video, you don't need to use ClickMagick to do this - but this is the tracking tool that I have been using myself and found it to be reliable and consistent and easy to work with. What you would need to do is first create a tracking link for the offer URL you want to promote. Go to 'postback URL builder' at the top of your ClickMagick tab, and select PeerFly from the network list. You should be given a unique sub-ID token that looks something like this: '&s1=[clickid]'. Simply copy & paste this exact ID to the end of your URL of the tracking link you want to promote. That is it for the tracking link portion - now we need to copy & paste the postback URL into PeerFly for the offer you want to promote. In PeerFly, on the top right, you should see a little dropdown menu. Scroll down to where it says 'setup postback' and click on it. In the area provided, simply copy the long URL provided to you by ClickMagick, and that should be it! You can also go to the 'global postback' tab on the left hand side of PeerFly and copy & paste the same exact code into the area provided. This way, this code will now be usable across all of your offers, and you don't have to manually go into each one and paste the code many times over for each offer you are promoting. After you finish all this, you should see ClickMagick get fed information over from PeerFly - so that when someone buys something from your links for a PeerFly offer, you should see ClickMagick show you an 'S' for sale with the number of sales and the dollar value equivalent.

How to Create a Revcontent Ad (Detailed Explanation + Hints/Tips)
 
18:51
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Hey all! In this video I show you how to create a Revcontent ad (Native advertising platform) that will show your ad on any topic sites/blogs of your choice. Of course if you also have your own website that you want to monetize, you can also apply as a publisher and have Revcontent pay YOU for using your site, but in this video, we will be coming at it from the side of an advertiser - a person promoting several websites on the blogs/websites of their choice. Obviously the first thing you have to do is go to revcontent.com and create an account. Fill in the details, and set up an account as an advertiser - not a publisher. Don't worry too much about filling in the website and other such details - those mostly apply to publishers so that Revcontent can gauge how popular the site is to determine if it is worth showing. After filling in all the details, you would need to verify your email - you may need to wait half an hour to an hour to receive it, and until then, you won't be able to log into the account - so don't freak out and be patient. You may also get an email telling you that you weren't approved... again, don't worry - that is for publishers, NOT advertisers - so if you put in the website you want to promote - they just disapproved it thinking you wanted to place Revcontent ads on that site. If you are an advertiser - disregard that. After you confirm, you can log in and verify your payment information - necessary before you get started. Once you do all that, it's time to start. Click on 'Campaign Boosts' and just fill in all the details. Mark the objective as 'Engagement' for now since I will be going over conversion tracking in the upcoming video. Select your topic interest group, akin to interest groups in Facebook, or keywords in AdWords, as that will be your target audience. Then click save and you will get to the ad level. Here, you just need to enter your site URL, provide a headline, and add an image. Make sure to read the guidelines here first before confirming your ad -- https://faq.revcontent.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2923123-headline-and-image-requirements Revcontent will NOT approve your ads if you don't do what they state in the requirements! Even the image has to be a 4:3 aspect ratio starting off with 420x315 pixels... if it's anything other than that, your ad will get disapproved for just that reason. Revcontent also states that they take 5-7 business days to review an ad, and they aren't kidding... so when you create your ad, make sure it 100% matches the guidelines, or it will get disapproved after the 7 days and you'll need to wait another 7 days for the approval. After that is done and you submit your ad, you can go back into targeting options to edit your list and change your bids. Keep in mind that the stated bid amounts don't mean that you MUST have that bid in order to show your ads - you can bid for less, but you'll just also get less impressions - however it's still possible for your ad to show even with a lower amount.

In this video, we will setup split testing on your ClickMagick account. As discussed in our previous post where we setup A/B testing on ClickFunnels, ClickFunnels can only manage 2 split test pages at the same time, but with ClickMagick you can much more than that! Let's get going! 1) Log in to your ClickMagick account. 2) Select the gear icon of the link you want changed. Then select the 'split testing' option. 3) Name your variations as you see fit. You can use any name to help you remember which page corresponds to which link, such as 'diabetes with pictures', or 'diabetes with bold font', etc... 4) Paste the links of your variations of the landing pages in the 'split test URL' spot. 5) Put in as many links as you want (I do not know what the limit is, but you can do quite a bit), and then make sure to equalize the weights so that each page has an equal chance of being selected! 6) After you put in all the links, click 'close', and refresh the page. You should now have your split testing set up on ClickMagick! Simple enough! But effective! Don't want to see my face or hear me talk? No problem! Check out my blog at effort4success.com.

Facebook Ads: How to Create a PPE Facebook Ad
 
27:02
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What you need to create a PPE ad for Teespring: 0:24 Setting up your Teespring post: 3:06 Creating the ad on Facebook: 7:32 A few other tips/things to consider/know when running a PPE ad: 23:38 My video on how to create a free mockup using Google and Photoshop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3OHC36typk&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMNMNXyVvnxJOTWFn7wprKI&index=9&t=25s M video on 3 ways to create a mockup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z93XpJK4KaY&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMNMNXyVvnxJOTWFn7wprKI&index=7&t=711s What's up?!?! In this video, I wanted to show you how to setup a Facebook ad for your Teespring campaign. I do indeed have a playlist where I show you most everything you need to know about Facebook ads (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMmQulZxhxM&t=25s&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hPG5J4MiEPg6cd7FRrYScd0&index=1), but I did want to make this special video since there are a lot of differences and things to consider when making your Teespring ad in particular, all of which I share with you here in this video. First thing we will need to do is actually create a POST on our Facebook group page - I will assume you already have a Facebook group, and if not, it's very simple to set up, just click on the top of your personal Facebook profile where it says 'create page' and just follow the steps. You can create a 'community' page for this purpose. When you have done this, just write a post with a picture showing off your shirt. You can start with a hook question to your audience and let them know where to get the shirt - but unlike previous videos where I recommended adding price to qualify the visitors to your page, I wouldn't suggest adding a price here since people will be less likely to share if they see a huge price tag on the post. Creating a PPE ad first benefits us for two reasons - one, it allows you to see whether your campaign and design is good or not - if even on a PPE ad no one comments or likes or shares your idea, chances are that it won't work with traffic or conversion campaigns either. Second, if your design IS working, tons of people will share your post, thus getting you additional free traffic and visitors to your site. After you create the post, do NOT select the 'boost post' option - this option gives you limited options as to your target audience. Instead, just hold on to your post for now and go back into Facebook Ads Manager/Power Editor and let's create our ad from there. So you will need to click on 'create campaign' and create a name for your campaign, ad set, and ad. I usually name my campaign whatever offer the shirt/product is related to, followed by the campaign objective - PPE/conversions/traffic being the most typical. I would name my ad sets the same, also corresponding to the particular differences between one ad set and the next, meaning I will write the gender, age, location, and interest, since that is what normally differentiates ad sets. For your campaign objective, be sure to select 'PPE' for post page engagement as your goal. After you do that click on 'next', your campaign will be set and you will just need to go into the ad sets and ads and adjust all the information within those categories. For the ad set, I wouldn't touch the age, but would adjust my gender, location, and interest based on my target market. I would be looking at an audience between 100k-300k ideally, as that is not too little for scalability, nor too much for being too irrelevant. Also remember to set the expiration date and start your campaigns the next day early in the morning - I do it at 8:00 AM the next day, so that FB has a chance to optimize your campaigns. Also remember to adjust placements so that your ads show up only in the news feed to start. You can test out other options later. After you do this step, the last thing to do is to setup your ad, which you can do by clicking on the ad set title and then 'editing' your ad. Also, if you do run this PPE ad, watch out mainly for shares and comments - likes aren't as important since they are just too easy to get. That's it!

In this post, I will teach you how to determine your exact traffic source using ClickMagick. This is important especially when you are advertising your product(s) in different areas, and need to determine what traffic source(s) is (are) the best, and which should be adjusted, and which eliminated completely. So, first thing you need to do is simply copy and paste your new, masked affiliate link from ClickMagick into your ad. BUT, before saving that ad, input a key term that would distinguish that ad term from another. For example, if I am setting up ads on Google Ads, at the end of the link I am promoting, I will type in '/googleads', to help me track down the people that click on my link ONLY THROUGH Google Ads. You would do the same addition to any other traffic source you are using, which will allow you to track clicks coming from that particular traffic source. You can have up to 5 different 'Sub-ID's' attached to the end of your links, so there should not be a problem with variability! After you set all these up, you will be able to see where your traffic came from when clicking on the 'total clicks' button in ClickMagick. That is it! A very short, but useful and truly essential aspect of affiliate marketing. Check out our next post where you learn what a tracking pixel is and how to set it up!

ClickFunnels: How to Setup Your Custom Domain With Cloudflare
 
14:08
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Cloudflare steps: 0:18 ClickFunnels steps: 8:50 Making sure it works: 12:48 Hey all! In this post/video, I show you how to integrate your custom domain with Cloudflare so that you can use your new domain to show the ClickFunnels webpages that you have created instead of the original, ugly, default ClickFunnels links! In our previous video, we did setup our custom domain with Namecheap and then ClickMagick to track using CNAME DNS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u92-AB3BzGM&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hMFW0iuLowIfpQ0H-Tf4ion&index=9), but ClickFunnels only allows you to have custom domains through Cloudflare, so we need to learn how to do it on this platform as well. So, the first thing we need to do is to create our Cloudflare account at 'www.cloudflare.com'. Once you do that, you need to input your new domain into the main bar when you just sign in, without any subdomain, such as 'www', just 'yourdomain.com'. After you do that and wait about a minute for it to load, you need to write down the subdomain that you want your domain name to have, and also set it up with no subdomain at all, much like we did in our previous video. So set up one CNAME record pointing to 'target.clickfunnels.com' as the value with 'www' as your subdomain (or whatever subdomain you want), and another CNAME record with '@' as your subdomain, standing for 'nothing'. Make sure the clouds are orange for you. Next, we need to input the values provided to you by Cloudflare back into Namecheap. So open up your Namecheap account and open your domain you want to setup. You need to change the middle menu option to 'custom DNS' and add the values provided to you by Cloudflare. Click the green checkmark when you have done that! Now, we just need to wait for our site to propagate and work worldwide, which can up to 24-48 hours. In our case, it took about 10 minutes. But, we still need to add an SSL certificate to our site so that it shows as 'secure', and add a page rule that also redirects your page to a secure server. Go to the 'crypto' option in Cloudflare and select 'full' for the SSL. Then, go to 'page rules', and add a forward URL page rule by inputting first your full domain name followed by a '/*' to symbolize any subID's that come after your domain name, and redirect it to 'https://yourdomain.com/1$' under the '301 permanent redirect' option. This should be it for the Cloudflare section! Now we just need to go back to our ClickFunnels and add our custom domain to our account. We can start by going to the top menu option and selecting 'custom domains'. We need to add a new custom domain by saying 'use existing domain' and then 'manual setup'. Add your custom domain without any subdomains, turn the SSL certificate on, and select what page you want to redirect visitors when they hit an error, or when they type in just 'yourdomain.com', without any subID's. After you have done that, we need to go back to our funnel that we want to change, and change 3 things: the overall funnel domain setup, the funnel step domain setup, and the individual landing page domain setup. We can do that by clicking the 'settings' option at the top right of our funnel, the 'publishing' option just below it for the funnel steps, and the little gear icon just below each landing page edit button for each individual landing page integration. After you have done that, you may also want to go to each landing page, click 'edit', and just save. That will ensure the new changes you have done have been saved! But aside from that, your integration should now be complete! We have done a test in the video, and everything has worked successfully, so be sure to check it out till the end to see what you should be looking for.

ClickFunnels: Making Your Site Mobile-Friendly
 
12:04
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why we need to make our site mobile responsive: 0:25 Quick way I use to make my site mobile responsive: 2:36 One more thing to consider: 10:54 Hey all! In this video, I show you a quick way I use to make my ClickFunnels site mobile responsive. Nowadays, there is a lot of traffic coming mainly through mobile devices, and if your webpage is not optimized for it... you're missing out a lot! When I first realized that I could make my ClickFunnels page mobile-responsive, I was happy. However, that also meant that I had to do a TON of work on the desktop version AND the mobile version, and anything I changed on the mobile version would affect my desktop version as well. So I needed to select one element at a time to ensure that that particular element would look good in either version. But that caused a lot of confusion and frustration. So instead, I made life easier by simply cloning every single section I had in my funnel and making one section 'desktop only' and the other one 'mobile only'. This way, I was able to make specific changes to either variation without affecting the other! In the video, I go over the specific changes that I made only in mobile view, such as padding, font size, or CSS coding. If you copy a section and create the 2nd version mobile only, you will also need to create another CSS code for your other version. This is a good thing since you don't want to meddle in your CSS code too much since some changes may look good in desktop view, but others may only look good in mobile. Also, you may want to play it safe and check your mobile view in different browsers. In our example where I used Chrome, everything looked fine until I went to Internet Edge and saw that the mobile view there was a bit skewed. This MAY also mean that your mobile view to some users may be skewed as well... so I would open up that browser in 'edit' mode and edit everything there as well. That's it!

How to Set up the Facebook Pixel: Everything You Need to Know
 
15:32
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ What a tracking pixel is (and what it looks like): 0:45 How to setup the tracking pixel (first step): 2:08 How to setup the tracking pixel (option 1: custom conversions): 4:40 How to setup the tracking pixel (option 2: event code): 9:30 How to add a custom audience to your ad sets: 13:02 How to read the data from your conversions: 14:01 Hey all! In this video, I show you what a Facebook pixel is and looks like, how to set it up, how to add it the people reaching your pixel to your audience list, and how to actually see the conversion results. - What is a pixel? A pixel is a tiny 1 by 1 pixel image. It is created for a tracking purpose so that people can see how many times a certain action was taken - a necessary step if you want to measure your results. So if you have a landing page and thank you page for example, you would put your tracking pixel on your thank you page to measure how many people reached it - doing so will tell you how many people signed up since the only way for them to reach your thank you page would be to sign up. Same applies to any page, whether it is purchases, leads, checkout, you name it! - First step in setting up a tracking pixel: in your Facebook ads account, head over to the 'pixels' option on the top left. After you click on it, you will be prompted to 'create a pixel'. Just do so, and keep in mind you can only have one pixel per account that you cannot delete. Once you do that, you will be given an option to input a 'pixel code' onto any page. Make sure to tick the 'advanced matching' option so that it gives Facebook additional useful information it can use for optimization, such as people's email address when they sign up. Simply copy that code, and paste it into every single one of your websites in the header section. It's as simple as that! Once you do that, you should be done with this easy step! - The next step (option 1 - custom conversions): after you do that, you can either create a custom conversion or an event code. The event code can be more accurate, but you can only have 20 per account at a time and cannot delete them. The custom conversions you can have up to 40, and can delete at any time. In order to setup the custom conversions, simply click on 'create conversion' tab on your pixel interface and select 'track custom conversions'. You will be able to input the URL of the page you want to track, and name it whatever you want to, as well as put a conversion value on it. I would suggest leaving out any 'www' or 'http' stuff out of that equation so that you track ANYONE who goes to your page, whether they in 'www.yourdomain.com', or 'http://www.yourdomain.com'... you get the idea. Make sure the page has the pixel working by going to that page, and seeing the pixel show up as 'active'. - Option 2 - event code: other than the custom conversion, you can simply input an event code onto your website instead. Simply click on 'view pixel' from the main pixel interface, copy the event code that you want to track (lead, purchase, add to cart, etc...) and paste that code in the BODY or FOOTER section of your particular webpage. You can then make sure the pixel is working by following the same process we did for the custom conversion - go back to your page and make sure the pixel is firing! - Inputting the pixel audience in your campaigns: you are done setting up the pixels! Easy, right?! Now you may want to add the audience to your campaigns, so just go to your ad groups, and where you would input your audience, just click on 'custom audience', and you SHOULD have an option to put in your new custom audience from the conversion pixel interface (option 1) we have done earlier. I believe the minimum is somewhere around 100 people before you can start using them. - Reading the conversion data: for this, you would need to head over into Ads Manager, as we discussed in our previous video, and customize your columns. You will need to scroll down to the 'website' section and select the pixels that you have input. This will show you the conversion number, value, and cost that was spent to generate your conversions.

ClickFunnels: How to Get Notified via Email After Getting a New Contact (Using Zapier)
 
10:49
Here is the next video I mentioned about that explains how to add a contact us form to ClickFunnels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pr5u3WEGm9Y&t=3s&index=54&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hNASorSJ04itRrhsnZ00x5u If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Hey all! In this video, I show you how you can integrate Zapier with ClickFunnels so that you can get an email notification after a prospective client either signs up to your email list or purchases something through your ClickFunnels funnels. This is a really simple integration and Zapier is basically a website that offers tons of different integrations between tons of different programs and applications. So the first thing you will need to do is create your Zapier account. Simply go to zapier.com and put in your name, last name, email, and password, click confirm, and then verify your email, and you should be good to go. You can change these details later on, so don't worry too much about keeping them perfect. Then you will need to add a new zap by clicking the 'create new zap' button at the top of your home screen. The first part is the trigger - which means what action do we want to be taken if we want some action to happen. So we need to add 'ClickFunnels' as the trigger so that we can set gaining of new contact as a trigger to us getting an email. Select which trigger specifically you want - people signing up or performing some action on your funnel or actually purchasing something within ClickFunnels. Either one will work for you to be able to get notified via email. You will then need to synchronize your ClickFunnels account with Zapier so that it pulls out all the right details and all your funnels and steps become available within Zapier for you to choose from. Select your funnel and select your step and you should be done for the ClickFunnels trigger part. After this, you will need to select what email you want to use as the 'sender' of this notification. You can use the Zapier automatic email, which looks something like '[email protected], or you can select a specific gmail that you have to send emails out. Both work pretty much exactly the same. If you are sending emails out to other people and want the email to look prettier, you may want to use the gmail instead of the default Zapier one. You can then add in any words for your headline and body text. Remember that this information is for you and the people you are sending the email out to ONLY, so don't worry too much about perfection here either. You can also use the button on the right hand side of either option to put in the ClickFunnels form fields in, such as name, email, etc... This will also give you some other information about whoever is buying or subscribing on your ClickFunnels funnels in addition to simply receiving an email notification. After you complete this step, you may need to add a contact to your funnel if you don't have any yet just to let Zapier know that this integration is working well and as intended. If this is the case, just create a fake contact on your funnel and then click on 'fetch data' on Zapier and you should be good to go. Name your 'zap' and that is it, your integration should be complete and you should now receive email notifications with tons of information about your clients! You can always edit and rename your zaps at any time. If you also prefer, you can play around with some other options available to you, such as the 'filter' option that allows you to filter out certain notifications. So you can for example say that you want to receive emails ONLY IF the person included their email, or ONLY IF the person included their address, etc... what you set exactly is up to you and there are tons of options as to what filter you want to have.

How to Set Up a Custom Domain for CPA Lead Affiliate Network
 
06:56
If you want to buy a domain on Namecheap, you can do so with my link here: https://affiliate.namecheap.com/?affId=108439 They offer really cheap domains that you can buy for as little as a dollar per year. Hey all! In this video, I show you how to set up a custom domain for CPA Lead affiliate network. Just like we did for Peerfly, it's a really cool feature that you are allowed to take advantage of that allows you to set up a custom affiliate link that you can use rather than the one provided to you, such as viral481.com/lajsdkfjkaskjl and instead make it look a bit nicer, such as yourdomain.com/kljkljalskjdflka. You would want to do this for several reasons, including the two listed here: 1. You are not using any third party tracking system that can mask the affiliate link with a nice looking custom-tracking domain 2. You want to promote a product on a third party tracking system that has blacklisted viral481.com. The process is fairly simple - you would just go to your domain registrar and add an A record pointing to the IP address provided to you by CPA Lead. After you do that, you may need to wait 24-48 hours for the new domain to propagate and start working with CPA Lead, but the process is done from here on! In the video, I already waited enough time for the domain to propagate so that I could show you that it is working. When you see an affiliate link now, all you would need to do is to manually replace the '481viral.com' in addition to some of the other additions to your domain followed by /offer.php. The exact details are listed in the video for you to follow. It's as simple as that! Then for every new offer you can simply change out the user ID and keep everything else the same. I use a notepad to keep track of these offers, but you can use whatever is most convenient to you, even a real notepad! That's it!

Facebook Ads: How to Create a Conversion Objective Campaign If You Don't Have Page Control
 
09:41
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Why set up a conversion objective campaign?: 0:12 What is an example of a page 'I don't control'?: 1:05 How to set a pixel on the redirect page: 2:20 Including the new conversion event in your ad sets: 8:09 What's up all! In this video, I show you how you can create a Facebook conversion objective campaign no matter what, ie, whether you actually own the page following your lead page or not. This is incredibly useful because if you are trying to get conversions through you landing page that goes to a sale page that you have no control over, you will NOT be able to setup this conversion objective campaign through Facebook. You must put the Facebook tracking pixel onto that page, otherwise Facebook will not be able to define what is meant by 'conversion' and you won't be able to follow through with this objective. Facebook optimizes your ads and shows it to the people most likely to engage, click, convert, etc... whatever it is your goal is, so it's more likely your audience will convert if you say your campaign objective is 'conversion'. If you are like me, you may have heard about this and been excited to try it out, but alas, if you don't own the page and are a vendor, how would you possibly put the Facebook pixel onto that page? My only solution at the time was to just create a campaign with a 'click' objective, which wasn't AS effective as one tailored for conversions. To be able to get that conversion pixel properly set up, what we do is basically add the Facebook pixel to the REDIRECT PAGE that points to the page following your lead page. This way, in order for people to reach your sales page, they have to first be redirected through that redirect page first, thus triggering the pixel fire. I use ClickMagick to do this for me, but you can use any tracking software you feel comfortable with as long as they have this feature available. The first thing we need to do is to actually grab the URL of the page we want to put the pixel on, and generate a tracking link from that. When you click on 'advanced options' on that tracking link, you should be able to insert the base Facebook code (or any tracking code) into the space that says 'pixel/code'. This will basically embed the redirect page into the tracking link, so that when you give your audience that sign up the link to the page proceeding your main sign-in page, they will be first taken to the redirect page which will trigger the pixel and allow you place your conversion pixel into Facebook for the campaign objective. You will also need to create a Facebook 'custom audience', as we have done in our full Facebook pixel video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo7ssvzEZ4g&index=5&list=PLS46f4aLJ2hPG5J4MiEPg6cd7FRrYScd0&t=25s) and enter the URL of the page for which you created your new tracking link for. This will allow you to grab this audience and then place it into the campaign ad set for which you want to optimize for conversions. You do need to make sure the pixel is active and firing first however, so just go through the process of signing in through your landing page and going to that sales page to ensure that the process is working properly and the pixel is firing.

Bing Ads: How to Create a Remarketing Audience
 
07:25
If you need help with a specific issue and want me to personally take a look at your setup, I can help! Check out the 'My Services' section of my blog: https://amarketingessentials.com/my-services/ Remarketing tab and setting it up: 0:26 How to include remarketing list in your campaign targeting: 4:40 ***I misspoke the 'bid only' and 'target and bid' as I was recording the video. Please simply exchange the information about the two of them in the video - 'bid only' means any ONE criteria can be met for the ad to show. 'target and bid' means ALL criteria have to be met for the ad to show.*** Hey all! In this video, I show you how to setup the remarketing tag on your website from Bing Ads - this is a very important element in your advertisements as most people do not buy their first time - it will take a few times for them to see your ad and get acquainted with your product before they make the final decision to buy. Our first step is to login to our Bing Ads account and go to 'shared library' at the bottom left of your screen and then click on 'audiences'. From here on, we will say 'create remarketing list' and we can now just fill in the blanks to have everything done. First of all we will need to input a name for our remarketing. Make this relevant to your campaign as you will have tons of remarketing lists later on and you want to make sure you can quickly and easily find what you are looking for. Next we need to select what the remarketing audience is. Are they people who have visited your site but not other parts of your page? You can include or exclude URL's here to fine-tune your audience, such as by targeting people who visited your sales page x ONLY and not sales page y, etc... Just like in the previous video, I would exclude the 'www' or 'http' as you would then limit yourself to people only typing in those prefixes. For the membership duration, that is basically the amount of time the cookie will stay on the visitors' browser. If you set your duration to 90 days for example and a visitor lands on your site once within that 90 day period, they will stay on that list for 90 days. If you set the duration to 1 day, visitors who land on your site(s) will stay on your list for 1 day and then no longer be on your remarketing list. This is something you would need to adjust depending on your business - are you selling small items like pencils, or large items like houses? You may not want to have someone on your remarketing list for 90 days who is looking to buy pencils as they would then be irrelevant prospects - if you want to buy a pencil, chances are you will buy it either today or tomorrow. Compare this with buying a house where the purchase time is far longer, requiring weeks or months before the decision and purchase can be made. For this, you may want to set your membership duration to 90 days (which is the maximum). After you select your UET tag that corresponds to this list (basically the code that you input on the pages), your remarketing list is now complete. In order to actually target people now that are in your list, you will need to go the 'audience' tab, click on 'create association', and 'add targeting'. Simply select the name of the remarketing list you just created and select either 'target and bid' or 'bid only' and you should be good to go! In relation to the remarketing list, if you type in 'bid only', then anyone on your remarketing list typing anything into Bing search could see your ad. This could be bad or good, since it reminds the customer of your product. But at the same time, if the customer didn't type in your keyword, it is possible he lost interest in your product entirely anyway, and that ad showing to him could be a wasted click. So if you want your clicks to be most relevant, I would select 'target and bid' so that your ad will show to people who are on your remarketing list AND type in your keywords. Click save and... That's it! You should now see traffic coming in from people in your remarketing list.
