WP Import Pro

WP Import 2.0 is a WordPress Plug-in and if you are struggling to create content for your blog it can be an inspirational source of ideas that can immediately free the writers block.

Having said that before you go down this path ask yourself “What are the most common questions that my customers ask?” and from your own point of view “What are the most common things that you wish your customer understood about your niche?”

Now if you have written blog posts or articles about all of these then I’ll give you permission to use WP Import Pro but only then.

At the end of the day it’s about giving your customers what they want to know.

Now WP Import doesn’t cost very much, it has it’s own library of articles (28,000) that are already prewritten but having read through a number of these I don’t think that without modifying them they should be used.

Put simply everything you publish should have the following

  1. Does the article add value by giving new information or creating a “that’s what that means” moment?
  2. Does the article paint you by what you have written as an authority on that topic?
  3. Does the article offer enough information that the reader might contact you wanting to know more?

If it ticks at least two of those pints then that’s a good start…

So back to WP Import, now I am writting what is turning out to be a novel sized document on internet marketing. At least with a book a page is the size of a page. On the internet a page can go on forever. Some of my internet pages take 14 pages to print.

So I bought WP Import as it was very affordable and unlike some of the steal content and republish solutions that I ethically don’t agree, with this, it comes with a huge library of copyright free PLR articles to use. And that great!

If has articles on most popular topics and with a day or two of sorting and editing you could seriously have a years worth of blog posts sorted and sceduled.

That being said it’s depth of knowledge on internet marketing isn’t huge but needless to say it created the inspiration I needed at times when my brain overload was taking hold.

And for that it worth its weight in gold.

Intrinsic Value (3.5/5)
Price (4.5/5)
Ease of Use (3/5)

Lets look at the way it works.

 

So you have a number of options. You could upload your own articles, search for articles from the 28,000 you have available, import or enter manually.

You can then add these and create new posts or pages.

So if I did a search for shoes it would list articles.

Now I could select the Preview Option .

It will then display each article and I can decide on it’s suitability

If I tap continue it will then create Individual Posts for each article…. Instantly

Now of course you can add video’s from You-Tube and edit the content but as a time saver or simply creating a starting point this can prove to be very helpful.

I recommend you edit the content and make it your own but I have to give this content creation solution the thumbs up and recommend it.

Generate Press Pro

Now first up Generate Press is available as a free theme and if you are starting up with a budget of nothing… if you combine Generate Presses free theme with Elementor, the free page builder Plug-in, then you are set to go.

That being said upgrading to the Generate Press Pro Plug-in unlocks features that to me are must haves. Once you’ve used Generate Press Pro there is no going back…

Now before I met this plug-in I hated WordPress. I come from the World of Dreamweaver where you can do anything, it just takes time.

I even went through a Joomla (a similar FREE content management system to WordPress) love period, till someone  hacked it, and I lost 12 months work.

Lesson here – backup your work and your updates…. automaticly to somewhere else on the net.

Never assume the hosting company will help as I quickly discovered. NEVER…

So in addition to my hosts backup I now use the backup feature in the Hepsia Control panel and it automaticly backs up to DropBox. (once you set it up).

Yes, you can probably afford to loose a days work, but a weeks, months, or year worth is time you’ll never get back.

Yes I had a backup on my local hard drive but that failed the week before the hack… (thanks Apple – but it was my fault for not having that backed up)

Sorry I digress

Now Dreamweaver was fine as a WYSIWYG editor till Adobe got hold of it and around the same time the world of CSS and HTML 5 appeared. The WYSIWYG part became a lot more involved… sigh

It is truely now a web designer and programming tool.

Don’t get me wrong the new Dreamweaver is a fine tool and I still pay Adobe every month for the Adobe Cloud Package but I mainly use that to access Photoshop, Premier and After Effects. I’d be lucky if I load Dreamweaver twice a month…

Simply put with the combination of WordPress, the Generate Press Pro Plug-in,  and the free page builder like the Elementor Plug-in, one can easily build a website with just a small learning curve and in a short period of time. And it can look great, actually even better than great.

But you might say “What about a membership site or an Amazon store or a Sales Funnel Builder?

You just add the necessary plug-in’s in and create.

How do I know?

Cause I do all of those things on this website and the only monthly fee I pay is my hosting fee and the yearly domain charge, apart from transaction fees and taxes…

It even runs my secure download area where after purchase you can access and download a product.

So what does the Generate Press Premium WordPress Plug-in do?

It gives you the control to do, well pretty well everything. Ok lets walk through the additions.

It adds on in what first appearance doesn’t seem to be that much… but once we drill down in the menus a lot is revealed.

It gets into the nitty gritty and for me this was a gamechanger.

For the first time in WordPress I could actually get what I wanted.

So lets go deeper.

I’ve used a lot of themes since this and while they may in some ways appear different many times i have been left looking for the sort of controls that Generate Press Pro Offers.

Just being able to turn off sections in the page editor screen is so nice.

Create a Landing Page with no navigation at the start of a sales funnel, tick a box and it’s gone.

Don’t like the colour of the navigation change it

Once you understand the way to navigate the many options in Generate Press Pro everything else is really up to your creativity.

Now there are 14 add-ons that are included in the plug-in and each just adds to your options.

All i can say as a summary is I like it so much I bought it. You are seeing it it in use now on this site and in other sites I am building or have built.

The license you get with it means you can install it on any sites you own or sites you develop for others.

So unlimited installs 🙂

Follow the Get it Now links and watch the videos that show you what it can do and the ways you can do it.

Highly recommended.

Bretts Circle – Affiliate Marketing Training

So a bit of background first Brett Rutecky is one of what, in the affiliate marketing space is known as an Super Affiliate. He and his business partner Mike Thomas (Mike from Maine) are regularly seen listed in the top 10 of the leader affiliate sales boards on JV Zoo’s IM Products.

He runs a review website that has gained a massive reputation for being one of the most honest software review sites in the world.

Honesty (5/5)
Price (4/5)
Implimentation (4/5)
Intrinsic Value (5/5)

Now I first came across Brett’s work, as he is a programmer as well, in a product known as Re-Engager but didn’t have the money at the time, and then thought that I had lost that opportunity.

Anyway sometime later I came across Brett again in a software giveaway he was doing as a promotion on Facebook, which then led me to his website and I think i’ve bought every product now he has released.

And no it’s not the buy the shiny object syndrome cutting in but more of “Thats what i’ve been looking for to solve that problem in my WordPress website“. And it is so refreshing to find a coder that solves problems.

So Bretts Circle is training about affiliate marketing, and yes there is certainly training by both JV Zoo and ClickBank of an official nature available for monthly fees (lookout for my reviews on those), if your starting off or debating about the affiliate marketing path, the one off fee, to get this will ground you in the stuff that will help you to understand how the industry functions.

So what do you get…

So there are to the point videos on every topic ranging from 3 minutes up to 19 minutes in length.

The reality is that the way that Brett sees it, you need to run a review site, and build, or have built for you, products that you own and can sell and leverage with in your business.

The combination of all of these things, and the effort to make all of that work will make you successful.

But it is work, it’s a job and while you are your own boss, unfortunately you can’t fire yourself and you have to make it work.

Discipline and Dedication…

So if you are serious about creating your dotcom lifestyle…

This training is the best way to see behind the scenes and see how the industry is structured and how the money flows.

I just wish I had discovered this two years ago as I, like many others, have paid for our own learning, in the mistakes we have made and, most of those could have been avoided had we known what Brett has since taught me and is available in this course.

Now you also get to join the Private Facebook Group so you can learn from others going down the same path.

Plus…

Now this training retails for $97 but you can get it for a discounted price just for reading this review.

ClickFunnels

Clickfunnels is a web page builder that makes sales funnels, websites and even membership sites. But its a lot more than that as it’s a marketing tool designed by a marketer.

Developed by multi-millionaire marketer Russell Brunson and his team they have rewritten the book on internet marketing with a software tool that combines almost all of the elements to monatize any product.

They have made a process that took what used to be weeks to complete to something a non techy can now do in a day.

Will it change the world? Well certainly for some people but there are other platforms hot on Russels heals that can do similar things but arn’t as integrated or as easy to impliment.

But do I love it and if you have a budget to support it, it will shorten your time to market literally over night.

Ease of Use (3.5/5)
Price (3/5)
Instructions for Use (3/5)
Implimentation (4.5/5)

Once you log-in online you come to  this screen. Here you select or create your Funnel.

Now a funnel can have any number of pages (known as steps) and they can be linked or stand as seperate pages.

Once you enter a Funnel you can access the general settings for each page (step) view your Funnels Statistics, cofigure which domain the funnel page is shown on (CF will allow a funnel to be set to any domain).

To edit a page you tap the Edit Page button and you enter the edit screen.

The editor is quite comprehensive, it breaks the page into sections and you can drag and drop elements into it.

For a more comprehensive look at the editor download my guide to setup ClickFunnel’s below.

Is it without flaws?  In some ways I guess the main one is that from a technical point of view the platform is a work in progress, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

There are millions of dollars that ClickFunnel’s users have made through using it. So it does work and it works well.

I think the training could be better, it simply put, appears rushed and written or delivered by programers not experienced teachers. It will tell you the answer, and support does respond eventually if you are stuck, but they need to allocate and train more staff and more training of those staff in that area.

There are definitely some things in the user interface that need to be fixed. Like to get a page in your domain you have to enter the same change in three different windows… guys seriously…

So things to consider. First point is it costs. A $97 a month entry point or with everything $297 a month.

With both versions you still need to host your email elsewhere. (My recommendation for that is Thexyz which will start you with a 25GB mailbox for less that $2 a month per email mailbox.)

With ClickFunnel’s entry level you still need an email autoresponder but with the all in version you get ClickFunnels own Actionetics which is like an email autoresponder on steroids. It is so much more than just an autoresponder and it introduces the ability to create marketing funnels allowing marketing responses using multiple communication channels based on a users interaction for the ultimate individual target marketing platform.

(My pick for an email autoresponder would be GetResponse so that’s another $15 a month to add to your $97 a month to start with.)

Now as Russell says “Your one funnel away…” and with ClickFunnels and the right offer, product and copy it could and can change your life.

It’s just getting the planets to align. Clickfunnel offers extensive training if you have the budget and you are the right fit you could reap the rewards.

On the same token they have free books plus postage and if you want to learn about Sales Funnels and Marketing the DOTCOMSECRETS and EXPERT SECRETS are a must read.

So for the non-techy ClickFunnels offers the ability to create websites similar to other page builders, but with the focus on marketing it gives the marketer an amazing set of tools.

But one solution doesn’t fit all, so if it’s in your budget range I recommend that you tap the button below and get the 14 day FREE trial.

To learn how to set it up if you get stuck you can purchase my guide on how to setup a ClickFunnel’s account. If you get stuck email me and I’ll get you sorted.
