Where To Get Free Traffic

Where To Build Free Pages, Funnels And Email Lists

  • LeadsLeap – has a ton of tools for building optin, landing, sales pages, etc, sales funnels, tracking links, creating link rotators, advertising your offers, building email lists, sending out emails and so on. There is a Pro option which costs $27/mth which lets you create 10 Pro ads to advertise for free along with other Pro benefits. I’d recommend upgrading to Pro in the first 24 hours if you’re interested as you’ll save 15% on monthly fees, paying $23/mth instead. Everything is unlimited if you uprade to a Pro account.
  • Systeme – an excellent all-in-one marketing platform that lets you create up to 3 sales funnels, a blog, a course, a community, an email list of up to 2,000 contacts, send an unlimited number of emails and more. All free. There are paid plans if you want to create more than this. I offer a bonus if you sign up with Systeme. I created this sales funnel with a free Systeme account as well as this sales funnel.

Where To Get Paid Traffic

  • ClickEngine – For $4.90/mth, get a couple of hundred high-quality leads to one of your offers or pages. You can upgrade to advertise a second link for a one-time $15 (well worth it). Links cannot be changed once submitted, so use a link cloaker or tracker to create your links first which will allow you to change your links whenever you want (in your link tracker/cloaker).
  • Udimi – This is one of the best places to order Solo Ads from. Clicks cost as little as $0.35 each. Check out the various vendors to find someone who fits your needs. This post explains how to go about finding a vendor that’s right for you.
  • Traffic For Me – Buy 100% real clicks from English speaking countries. Minimum order is 200 clicks and prices range between $0.50 and $1.00 per click depending on where the traffic is coming from and how many click you order.

Website Builders & Web Hosting

  • Wealthy Affiliate’s SiteRubix Web Hosting – Build your first WordPress site and have it hosted for free. Website security is front and center here, very important these days.
  • A2 Hosting – If you’d rather not use Wealthy Affiliate as a web host, then this is my recommended independent web hosting company.
  • InMotion Hosting – Another excellent web hosting choice. They’re slightly cheaper than A2 Hosting.

Standalone AutoResponder Services

See this post for mini-reviews of the autoresponder services below…

  • GetResponse – probably the best autoresponder for those who are interested in building an online business in the internet / affiliate marketing niche.
  • Aweber – another very popular and long established autoresponder. I use this one myself, for historical reasons.
  • ConvertKit – highly regarded among marketers, this autoresponder is a little more expensive than most but includes automation tools that aren’t included or that you have to pay extra for elsewhere. See my review here. They also run 3 podcasts you can check out.
  • MailChimp – one of the newer autoresponders. It allows you to build a mailing list of up to 2,000 subscribers and send out up to 12,000 emails each month, all for free. The downside is that internet / affiliate marketing mailing lists are not welcome. Great for all other niches.
  • Mail Primo – the only autoresponder on the list that does not require a monthly subscription. A one time fee gets you full access to building unlimited mailing lists and sending out an unlimited number of emails.
  • Sendlane – I confess I don’t use this autoresponder service myself but I hear very good things about it. Email deliverability is very high. Pricing is higher than for other autoresponders. However, they have just added a unique feature – the ability to capture customer email address from your sales as an affiliate marketer on Clickbank.

Squeeze / Landing Page Builders

See this post for mini-reviews of the squeeze and landing page builders below…

  • Systeme – a complete all-in-one marketing system especially suited for beginners and those with small budgets. You can start out with a Free-Forever account which lets you build up to 3 sales funnels, one blog, one community, one course, one email list, collect up to 2,000 subscribers and send out an unlimited number of emails. There are 3 paid plans ranging from $27/mth to $97/mth depending on what you need. Save 30% on all paid plans if you pay annually.
  • LeadsLeap – another all-in-one marketing plaform that’s been around since 2008. It’s extremely popular with affiliate marketers due to its low cost and range of tools. Build pages, funnels, email lists, track your links and so on, starting with a free account. Upgrade to a Pro account whenever you need to use the features it offers. It’s a flat $27/mth no matter how many pages, funnels, email lists you create or email subscribers you collect. If you upgrade within the first 24 hours, you’ll save 15% per month and only pay $23/mth.
  • UpViral (save 50% with this link) – a complete, dynamic web-based solution and referral formula that handles every aspect of viral marketing. It makes it cheap and easy to build highly profitable marketing campaigns that leverage your visitors so your traffic compounds over time! There’s a free webclass here showcasing UpViral.
  • Clickfunnels (includes my bonus package) – the tool I use to build my own sales funnels (I’m also able to clone other marketers’ sales funnels when they share them). In my opinion, it’s a better tool than LeadPages as it’s been created by one of the most successful marketers out there – Russell Brunson. I like it so much that I’m offering a bonus package worth $12,000. It also has a stinking affiliate program that any affiliate marketer should be a part of. I talk about my reasons for choosing it in this blog post.
  • LeadPages – this is a top-tier service that lets you collect leads from landing pages, pop-up forms, social media, text messaging, and email. There’s a lot more to it as well. This is a tool that’s best left until you’re familiar with list building and want to scale up your efforts.
  • OptimizePress – another WordPress plugin for creating squeeze pages but it also creates Webinar Registration pages, Event Pages, Free Training Pages, Microsites & Minisites, Funnel Pages, Small Business Websites, WordPress blogs (comes with its own theme) and Membership sites. Required if you want to use the pre-built squeeze pages that come with Buzzinar‘s PLR reports, ebooks and audio files.
  • Landing Page Monkey (includes my bonus package) – this is the easiest landing page builder to use and it’s also the least expensive. Your pages are hosted for you so you don’t need your own website. You have full control over how your pages look. Adding animated backgrounds (videos) is very easy. Comes with my bonus package. My review is here.
  • Genius Lander (includes my bonus package) – from the same developers as Landing Page Monkey, this landing page builder allows you to build more sophisticated landing pages that are geared to use psychological techniques to get better open rates. Comes with my bonus package.
  • ProfitBuilder – a WordPress plugin that allows a blog to create squeeze and landing pages that are hosted on your blog’s domain. It comes with a huge number of pre-built templates for a variety of different types of landing page. [no longer supported]
  • Ninja Popups – a WordPress plugin for building popup forms on your blog. Forms can be optin forms, coupon codes, etc. You can use the plugin to collect subscribers for your email lists or to drive traffic to special offers.
  • Conversion Gorilla (includes my bonus package) – similar to Ninja Popups in concept, it adds an attention bar to your website. This fully configurable bar can be used to collect email addresses and subscribers or to direct traffic to your offers. The Pro version of the plugin allows you to place an attention bar over any webpage, not just ones you own. Read my review here.
  • Dual Squeeze – a 100% free squeeze page builder. Great for those just starting out. Once someone signs up on your squeeze page, they’re directed to another link of your choosing. That can be to a squeeze page to collect emails for another list or to an offer you want to promote.
  • InstaBuilder 2 – a WordPress plugin that creates squeeze pages as part of a WordPress site which work on both desktop PCs and mobile devices. Over 100 pre-designed squeeze page templates are included and you can create multi-step optin pages if you need to. [no longer supported]

Video Marketing Tools

Using videos is one of the best ways to drive traffic to your squeeze pages and landing pages. It can seem daunting at first but creating videos is not as difficult as you might imagine.

  • Camtasia – this is THE tool for creating over-the-shoulder style videos where you’re showing your audience what’s on your monitor. These types of video are typically used for making video tutorials demonstrating how a software tool is used for example. It is a full video editor, so videos recorded on cameras can be imported and edited too.
  • SnagIt – you can think of this as Camtasia’s little brother. It’s also a screen recording application but it doesn’t include the video editor that’s part of Camtasia.
  • InVideo – this online video creator makes it easy to create dynamic videos that grab a viewer’s attention. Simplifies video creation with 5,000+ ready-made templates that you can quickly customize even if you’ve never done it before. Save 50% if you pay yearly. Use coupon code AIVIDEOS30 to save an additional 30% on annual plans or coupon code AIVIDEOS25 to save 25% on monthly plans.
  • Instant Video Wizard (includes my bonus package) – the closest video creation tool in capability to the now defunct Vidnami. It has some additional features but also lacks some of the features that Vidnami had. I’m offering the same bonus package for this as I did for Vidnami. You can also get a lifetime 20% discount through my link.
  • YouTube Buddy – a free Chrome browser extension that integrates directly into YouTube to help run your channel there with ease. Paid accounts that provide access to additional functions and tools start at $9/mth.
  • VidIQ – this tool is designed to boost your YouTube views by providing free insights and guidance to keep your channel growing. It puts a panel on YouTube pages that provides information about the video that is otherwise hidden or hard to get. There are 4 plans – one free and three paid.
  • Flickstr – This is a new video creation tool that’s designed specifically for creating video ads that are best used on YouTube. Video ads are fully customizable and look professionally produced due to the quality of elements provided with the software.

Masking Your Affiliate Links

  • LeadsLeap – an all-in-one marketing tools that offers a range of tools for free including a link tracker and a link rorator. No need to have a WordPress blog to use it.
  • Pretty Link Lite – a free WordPress plugin that makes long, ugly web links into shorter, more appealing links that appear to be on your own domain. These links are good for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) too.
  • Pretty Link Pro – the paid version of the Pretty Link plugin offers a huge number of additional and welcome features over the Lite version, including automatic keyword hyperlinks and a variety of ways of masking and redirecting links.
  • ClickMagick – a professional online solution for click tracking and conversion attribution. Track everything from the click to the back-end sale or sign up and see exactly where your traffic is coming from and which of it converts the best.

Affiliate Marketing Programs That Pay Passive Income

There are probably millions of affiliate programs out there for all kinds of products and services.

The vast majority of them pay commissions on sales of single items so you have to keep hustling to get more sales to keep your revenue coming in.

Another approach is to promote services or programs that require monthly fees – each month you get commissions from paying customers without having to do additional work. Well, not as much anyway.

There’s always an attrition/churn rate with subscription-based services but getting in a few extra customers each month is easier than trying to get the same or more one-off sales as last month.

And it’s easier to build a growing and sustainable income with subscription-based services, so here are a few to look at to get started:

  • LiveGood – this program provides health supplements at knockdown prices compared to the competition. Everyone wants to be healthy so this type pf program has huge, broad appeal. Now you can sign up at the link above or sign up here to get a complete sales funnel to promote LiveGood (something they don’t provide themselves). This will save you a huge amount of time and some expense in building your own funnel.
  • GotBackup – there’s something like 5 Billion mobile devices and close to 1 Billion PCs and laptops in the world. And all of them hold documents, photos, videos and other important files that can easily be lost to theft, accident, hardware failures, hacking, ransomware etc. This service allows anyone in the world to backup their files and devices online for safekeeping and restore them when necessary. Join through my link and you’ll get access to funnels and capture pages for GotBackup and other passive income-based programs (nothing to do with LeadsLeap this time).
  • Systeme – an extremely affordable all-in-one marketing platform that blows a service like Clickfunnels out of the water with the features it offers. People can start with a free-forever account and upgrade to a paid plan when they need to create additional business assets.
  • LeadsLeap – this is the oldest running all-in-one marketing platform out there and loved by affiliate marketers due to its very low cost (there is a free plan as well). It’s a great platform to build an online business around and will serve you for years to come plus you can earn commissions by recommending it to others.
  • My Traffic Platform – is all about driving quality traffic to your website. And who doesn’t need quality traffic? If you join through the above link, you’ll get a share code to use with LeadsLeap that will allow you to clone the exact sales funnel I’m using.

Precious Metals And Cryptocurrency Investing

Making your money work for you is one way you become wealthier.

Simply leaving your money in a bank savings account is a bad idea as what they pay you in interest is far below the annual inflation rate, so your savings actually lose purchasing power as time goes by.

Precious metals like gold and silver tend to preserve the purchasing power of your investment rather than growing it.

If owning precious metals is something you’d like to do but don’t want the hassle of paying storage fees, worrying about them being stolen or having the pay VAT on silver, platinum or palladium (if you’re in the EU), here is a fantastic option:

Precious Metals Investing

They’re based in Switzerland and fully accredited.

Buying stocks can be a better option and the S&P has averages a 10% return, on average, every year.

For the best return on investment you need to look at crypto programs.

There are a lot of scams out there and I’ve invested in my share of them.

Initially I was tempted by programs that offered huge gains but all of those have collapsed or are in the process of doing so, so lower percentage return programs are the way to go.

This is the only cryptocurrency program I now recommend:
