You might not be fully and 100% aware of everyone you are linking to. You could even be linking to a bad-neighborhood site without realizing it. There are a few ways this can happen.
I came across something yesterday which I thought some people might want to know about.
Hang on – this comes for free! Don’t get scared off yet.
Usually when I hear the name “Mike Filsaime” I run and duck for cover. I’m serious! I know he knows viral marketing well. It’s just a thing I have.
But it was late, I was supposed to be in bed, and I was also taking a break from what I was supposed to be doing (like make my 33rd Squidoo Lens).
Mike has a new viral marketing membership program, with free and paid versions. It’s called Butterfly Reports.
This membership enables you to create free viral reports very easily (with rebrandable affiliate links) and syndicate them to others who can promote them and send them to their email lists of zillions of people.
You also get access to a wide variety for free reports and eBooks which have been written by others. Some of the affiliate links can be rebranded with your affiliate ID.
There are different versions and scenarios and features but the very short video explains it pretty succinctly and better than I could.
I watched a short video and decided to sign up for the free version (which was much more fun than doing what I was supposed to be doing).
Then of course there was one-time-offer an upsell page, asking for a couple hundred dollars so I clicked on the “no thank you, I know I’m destroying my life but I’ll have to pass up anyway” button, and continued on to my next upsell.
Okay – this upsell offered me a free 30-day trial with a Gold membership, for $1.00. (After that it’s $29 per month.) But it also offerred these free bonuses:
- Bonus #1: The Butterfly Marketing Manuscript (Value: $97.00)
- Bonus #2: Power Link Generator – Get Rid of those Ugly Links (Value: $97.00)
- Bonus #3: Viral Friend Generator – Tell-A-Friend on steroids (Value: $97.00)
- Bonus #4: CB Accountant (Value: $97.00)
- Bonus #5: CB Spy (Value: $67.00 per year) (But at the moment it seems to be free anyway)
- Bonus #6: You Cant Block This – Unblockable Popup Maker (Value: $27.00)
- Bonus #7: eWriter Pro (Value: $27.00)
- Social Bookmarking Black Book
- Podcasting Black Book
- Free Croc Ads Credits if you sign up for Croc Adspaid membership
Mike got my dollar.
Several of the above free bonuses are things I have heard of before and in a good way. The Butterfly Marketing Manuscript has been highly recommended for the field of Viral Marketing. So has the Viral Friend Generator. I think I’ve heard of the Power Link Generator before, and it looks very useful.
I’ve also heard of eWriter Pro as being a very good eBook creation software.
The others – I don’t know. But the two CB tools look pretty interesting. Although I don’t think I would want to use an unblockable popup maker.
I logged into my account and started looking for what free rebrandable eBooks were available. There is a pretty impressive collection and I started to download some.
They also tell you how many links there are in the eBooks, and how many are rebrandable. So you can see this before you download.
There are all different categories of eBooks to search from:
New Reports Marketing and Ads
Business to Business Money and Employment
Computing and Internet Pets and Animals
Fun and Entertainment Society and Culture
Health and Fitness Sports and Recreation
Home and Family
This membership also includes methods of generating your own profesional viral reports quickly, with professional cover graphics and rebrandable affiliate links, and getting them distributed widely. Apparently, the staff write the reports for you as well? If I heard that correctly. I’m still figuring this out (when I’m not making Squidoo Lenses).
In any case, I thought it looked interesting, and if any of you out there are interested in Viral Marketing, getting your name out there, finding useful and rebrandable free eBooks to distribute, or just getting a bunch of free software, you might like to know about this.
