A. SPONSOR ADVERTISEMENT

If you do ANY pay-per-click in Google, or if you are thinking
about it, there is ONLY one tool you absolutely, positively
must know about, live with, sleep with, and use.

http://www.speedppc.com/cmd.php?af=831706

Even PRO ppc people don’t always use this tool. It gives you
the single biggest boost in quality score, lower click prices
and results I know of.

Instead of getting that next Adwords Ebook that tells you WHAT
to do, get a tool that DOES IT for you. This software has my
full endorsement.  I’m using it myself on my new ppc campaigns.

By Marlon Sanders

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Several weeks ago I launched “The Promo Dashboard.”

I wrote the sales letter based on the proven formula
that causes EVERY Dashboard I do to sell big.

Well, this time I missed the Formula slightly and
my conversions to my list were OK but not great.

And the conversions of my affiliates were fair to
poor in some cases.

So I needed to fix this fast!

Especially after one of my long-time super affiliates
emailed the offer and got an abysmal response.

What did I do?

Easy peasy.  You split test. That means you use software that
rotates different versions of your sales letter and counts
the results.  A video on how to do this is one of the upcoming
bonuses I have in store for Promo Dashboard buyers.

Not rocket science here.  Really, I should have ran my
split tests when I launched the product.  One of the things
I’m creating a new system for is testing.

Things convert to MY list that may not perform as well to
affiliate lists since I have a relationship with my customers.

I need some “test traffic” pools to hone copy on before I
roll out to affiliates.  I never really needed this in the
past. But in today’s hyper-competitive Internet marketing
arena, I do.  So that is one of the reasons I did the Interview
with Daegan Smith the other day.

He’s an expert at building traffic pools you can quickly test
creative on.  In the biz, we call headlines and leads “creatives.”
For example, I might write some headlines on banner ads and then
test ’em.

Actually, I WILL be doing this on future sales letters.  It just
makes sense.

Anyway, I came up with several theories about what might increase
response.  For example, I theorized that the picture of
the Promo Dashboard itself might cause people to confuse
it with OTHER Dashboards I’ve done.

I also felt maybe I sold the steak too much and the sizzle
not enough.

Step 1:  I wrote several headlines and leads

The lead is the beginning of your sales letter.  The headline and
the lead are the most important part of your letter.

Step 2:  In one letter I ripped out the picture of the Dashboard,
so I could split test it vs. a version WITH the picture.

Step 3:  I hunted down an ezine issue I wrote with a headline that
did exceptionally well in terms of people publishing it on their
web site.

I created a sales letter version using THAT headline. And I created
a letter with pictures demonstrating more SIZZLE. You know, pix of
me around the world and so forth.

Step 4:  I ran the split test.

It only took a few hours for one of the new sales letters to get
4 sales vs. 0 for the original sales letter.

So I immediately went to THAT version.

Step 5: I took THAT winner and created several split test versions
of it.

Step 6:  I threw those up in the software.

The test version from step 4 STILL won out slightly.

Step 7:  I selected that as the winner in the software so for now
it’s the only version being displayed.

You can see the CURRENT version at:
http://www.promodashboard.com

I have several ideas on OTHER things to test.

==> Our conversions are 3X to 4X higher than they were 26 hours ago.
It’s making about a buck a click right now, which is right where
I want it.

In the meantime I found out we had some CSS code on the order page
that was causing a little “red” message on our SSL secure server
lock.

So I had Rick Hanson, my go-to programming genius, fix that.

==> My NEXT plan is to buy some traffic from Google, banners, ezines
or whatever and test out my sales letter on 100% cold traffic.

Then, if my conversions hold up, I’ll show my affiliates those
numbers and we’ll move forward.

My goal is to keep conversions at a buck a click.
