Do you know that the .co domain names have been relaunched recently? While .co is actually meant for a business in Colombia, it is getting very popular because it is so similar to .com and can stand for a COmmercial site or a COmpany.
There are 2 ways you can benefit from the .co domain names:
You can buy the .co name for your business if you already own the .com to protect the brand. You don’t want someone breathing down your neck with a deceptively similar name.
You can buy the .co name if you did not get .com name when you started off. You can also keep watching for the .com name so that you can grab it if the owner forgets to renew it or decides to sell it off.
Also you can reserve the .co name for your main keywords (better hurry as the keyword rich names are disappearing fast). It is an open secret that Google gives a lot of priority to sites with keywords in the domain name when ranking the sites.
We have put up a few .co names for sale here. Check out if any of these interest you. You can get them cheap if you make a good offer. Naturally they will become more expensive after they have aged a little.

Neil Shearing is one smart cookie – he used some cool product launch techniques to ramp up sales of $253,603.47 for his Adsense ebook, Auto Income Secrets. I always wondered how do these guys get sales of more than a quarter million dollars and like with simple ebooks costing less than $100! Now Neil is willing to bare it all 🙂
He has outlined the complete step-by-step plan in his new ebook, Insider Rollout Secrets. These are the same powerful techniques and strategies, which he used to generate enormous sales for his other ebook. How he planned JVs, how he got the affiliates drooling over his product, how he used the power of 7 and 70 to get the prospective customers to buy now and much more.
Funnily Neil says, “You know what’s amusing? When you consult your own Rollout ebook during the launch of your own Rollout ebook! :-)”
By the way, Neil is offering a $10 introductory discount on orders for the first few days only, so check it out and grab your copy today to save ten bucks! (Now this is another idea from his ebook – a discount for the first few days to generate time scarcity, buy now or pay more later).
I don’t want to give you another fancy reason to buy. I got my copy, enjoyed it thoroughly and feel that it is worth every penny you invest for this ebook. Now you can’t make money by just buying this book but if you are planning to rollout a product (physical or electronic) anytime soon, do not miss it. Get it now — Insider Rollout Secrets by Neil Shearing
Google today launched Google page creator service where you can create small web sites (with 100 MB space, you can get fairly big though).
It is an interactive builder, quite simple and does not require knowledge of HTML or FTP or any similar geek stuff. They have a large number of designs and layouts, so you can get fairly unique. The login is the same as your Gmail ID, so this becomes the complete solution including the web site and email. If you don’t like the URL (something like http://GMAILID.googlepages.com, you can buy a domain and redirect the domain to this page.
Armand Morin, Alex Mandossian and Rick Raddatz have launched Marketing Makeover Generator software, which helps you implement proven marketing magnets on your site in minutes and get instant improvements in opt-in and sales. A limited time 7-day trial is available here for $1 only.
Internet marketers have realized long back that if a web site visitor won’t give you his name and email address, he will not buy from you. It requires up to 7 contacts for a prospect to become a customer and if you are not capturing the visitor’s name and address for later follow-ups, you are leaving lots of money on the table.
This is why, savvy marketers set up their landing pages and home page as name squeeze pages where the visitors opt-in by providing their name and email address. This enables them to follow up on the prospects repeatedly till they buy or die (opt-out). A very powerful technique to increase the sales per visitor.
Checkout marketing makeover magic and see for yourself the power of this technology, without needing to invest huge sums of money or time.
I have been watching the launch of Butterfly Marketing by Mike Filsaime with great interest and am happy to share my findings with you. Feel free to study these findings and apply some of them to your marketing.
Disclaimer: I am NOT an affiliate of Mike and there are no links here that I earn from.
Remember that Jeff Walker is helping Mike with this launch and he recently revealed in a newsletter his belief that this launch is going to be big, based on some insider numbers that he is privy to.
Naturally there are some high profile Internet marketers helping Mike with this launch, who are all promoting the package with the expectation that you will buy through their affiliate link. Most of these affiliates are offering a fat package of bonuses that you can get if you buy through them. The funny thing I noticed is that some people are offering n numbers of their own ebooks and study courses. Will you rather read and implement the butterfly marketing manual or their ebooks and courses?
Some smart souls like Jeff have already realised the folly and are offering a chance to join a mastermind group with them. The group will dissect the ideas in the butterfly marketing course and the members will push each other up. I believe this is a very useful idea and if you are buying the course, you should do that through some such person. Not only you learn a lot, this is a tremendous networking opportunity.
To create the pre-launch buzz and to make sure that there are a large number of people in the sales funnel, Mike had a teleconference with Mark Joyner. People can register to attend that teleconference and also to win a FREE copy of the course. As you can see, the lure of being able to win a copy of a $997 product is big enough to drive a large number of people to register.
Then I noticed that a chapter from the book got leaked on a marketing forum. I am sure that this is a deliberate attempt to arouse curiosity and interest and a part of the marketing strategy. Michel Fortin had similarly allowed people to see some snapshots of the Traffic Secrets package when John Reese was launching it. This type of drip feeding keeps the buzz alive.
Soon after the launch (hope that is very successful), you can look forward to see a special report by Mike about how he pulled off such a big launch successfully and may be beat John Reese who
had a million dollar day and Frank Kern who sold more than a million in a few hours.
Michel Fortin, the great copywriter has made an interesting blog post about learning from successful product launches.
When people launch products successfully, they have employed strategy and tactics that other successful marketers have also applied – with a twist. You can’t copy someone’s actions blindly and expect to rake in the same success. There are a lot of factors like product quality, joint venture partners and like contributing.
You should watch the entire process carefully, like how they are building buzz and anticipation, releasing teaser snapshots – even the name they give to affiliate sub-directories like www.product.com/relaunch. Then apply these to your marketing but after adapting the tactics to your own product and not by blindly copying.
If you are attentive enough, you will not need to buy the “How I did my product launch” report that most of them launch and make extra money with 😉

Keyword Research for both PPC campaigns and building sites for monetizing with Adsense can really benefit with a big keyword list. But what are the important criteria for a good list and does Keyword Explosion meet them?
Jonathan Leger recently introduced Keyword Explosion with 2.1 million keywords. Now there are several Adsense lists on the market and how does Jonathan differentiate his list? He claims it to be the biggest.
While many other lists are based on Overture figures, which are not considered an accurate indicator of the demand because of the large number of automated queries, Keyword Explosion lists are based on Google Adwords figures. Amazing – I just wonder how on earth did he manage to collect demand and bid prices for 2.1 million keyword combinations.
While these lists are quite useful for market research whether you are advertising with Adwords or building content sites for monetizing with Adsense, there are several factors that you must keep in mind while choosing your keyword list.
The primary factors that make a keyword research list worthwhile are —
Exhaustive coverage – different people have interests in different fields. So the list must have lots of keywords from different markets to satisfy all these different people.
Bid price – it is important to have the bid price on Google as most of the users will like to use Adwords while advertising and Adsense while monetizing.
Search volume – terms with $1 per click and high search volumes in excess of 1000 searches per day can make you more money than terms with $50 per click but only 1-2 searches a day. Again the search volume on Google is more important than that on Overture, which most of such lists report.
Keyword Explosion meets all these conditions pretty well. This contains more than 2.1 million keywords categorized in various ways. There are 5 different lists based on different perspectives so that you can choose your niche easily, locate all the terms related to that market and build your site or advertising campaign around that.
The 2-term and 3-term lists are particularly interesting to Adsense marketers as these terms are easier to rank for and provide higher pay out per term than the broad 1-term keyword.
When I suggest my clients to create web sites or blogs for earning money with Adsense, I always tell them to concentrate on tightly focussed niche areas that cover a small section of a big market with a good search volume and a decent pay out. Keyword Explosion lists really come in very handy for this research.
The price of the list is a little on the higher side at $197 (at the time of writing this note). However Jonathan claims that the extensive coverage of the keywords makes it good value for money and customers should be able to recover their investment within a few days. He also offers 100% money back guarantee if you do not find the list to be useful for any reason whatsoever.
If you are planning to build a content-filled site and want to locate some high paying terms for your topic, take a look at Keyword Explosion. May be your Adsense cheques will explode too!
