  How long have you had your present phone number and main email address?
Posted by: Kurt - 03-27-2020, 10:42 PM - Forum: Out to Pasture - Off Topic - Replies (1)

I've had this phone number about 3 years. I've had the same "main" AOL email address for 24 years. Why AOL? When I first got online I was fairly migrant and wanted a service I could use anywhere I went, which pretty much ment AOL. I have told people through the years I will always have the same email (if I can) but can't promise my phone number won't change.

I know people make fun of AOL email addresses, but after 24+ years at least you know where to find me to make fun of me. Smile

The "gurus" say you should brand yourself with your email and they're not wrong. But one advantage of a third party domain name is if/when your hosting with your custom email goes down, so not only is your site down but so is your email so no one can contact you.

  List of Buyer Keywords
Posted by: Kurt - 03-23-2020, 03:54 AM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (3)

The following list of keywords are words that indicate "buyer intent". Strongly consider using these as keywords and phrases as they indicate that the person using them is looking to buy something and isn’t simply searching for information. Especially give them a try for PPC. This may be a case where you get less traffic but make more money.

  COVID - How to protect ourselves
Posted by: Kurt - 03-22-2020, 04:24 AM - Forum: Out to Pasture - Off Topic - Replies (17)

I've spent a lot of time researching ways we can help protect ourselves and each other from COVID. I've listed some things I've found below.

I am a solutions orientated person. By that, I try to solve a problem instead of complaining.

Please, NO COMMENTS ABOUT WHY THINGS WON'T WORK. If I, or anyone else, is wrong about a stat or there is a different point of view from a credible resource, please post it here.

I just don't want to hear, "It's a good idea but it won't work because so and so won't do this and that. And please, no politics or politicians.

I also strongly believe that knowledge is power. You may never use any of this, but you know where to find them if/when needed.

Sad Goodbye Kenny Rogers

I loved Kenny growing up even though I hated country music. I'll have to get out the greatest hits album I listened to as a teenager and into the adult years and listen again to celebrate his music. I haven't listened in a long time.

All the good ones (subjective I know) are leaving us too soon.

  eBay Partner Network email about COVID
Posted by: Kurt - 03-20-2020, 05:32 PM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (1)

I got this from eBay since I'm an EPN (affiliete). Even if you're not in EPN this info may interest you.


Quote:Hi Kurt,

Here at eBay, we have been monitoring the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are working closely with local leaders to ensure the safety and well-being of our community and employees. As our partner, we feel it’s important to keep you updated and aware of the steps we are taking.
 
Protecting consumers
We have been working with regional health authorities across the globe, who have been incredibly supportive of our mission to stop predatory selling. These include the US FDA, French Ministry of Economy, Italian and German medicine authorities, and the Westminster Trading Standards Department in the UK.
 
As of March 5, eBay US, IT, CA, and FR have blocked all new listings and removed existing listings that sell healthcare masks, hand sanitizers and gels, and disinfecting wipes. This is to comply with regulatory restrictions and protect consumers from unfair pricing behaviors exhibited by some sellers. We will also remove other commodities such as toilet paper and bleach if prices become disproportionately high. 
 
Listings containing the words “coronavirus” or “COVID-19” have been blocked since February 3.
 
Starting March 16, buyers who search for terms related to COVID-19 will see a banner at the top of the search page that redirects them to the official WHO website. 
 
Ensuring employee well-being
Many of our offices around the globe have instituted work-from-home directives to protect our employees and do what we can to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Our employees remain focused on working in support of you. 
 
Continuing work as usual
We will continue to ensure that restricted items are omitted from our feeds as appropriate, and are taking swift actions to prohibit predatory selling of restricted items. We encourage you to continue promoting items as you normally would. 
 
We are working hard to keep the eBay Partner Network going strong and bring you the best experience possible.  We are committed to keeping you informed as this situation evolves and will provide updates as able.
 
Thank you for your partnership and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns at AskEPN@ebay.com.
 
The eBay Partner Network Team

  Covid 19 Survival "caring"marketing Ideas
Posted by: cosmic77 - 03-18-2020, 10:14 PM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (15)

So I got the go Ahead from Kurt to open this thread.
PLEASE NOTE - This is NOT for gaming it with the vulnerable. I have seen already some scam marketers digging deep in the pit by selling more fear...This is not about that. Thank you.

Lets put our heads together as a Braintrust here perhaps?
Or If not - Lets look at trending Niches of sales/services we can honorably help out, helping our own families at the same time.

My first seed ideas based off what I could do with my skill sets are:

1. Small membership club on Localised B2B helpline Information & Networking
2. Free Webinars (to) Paid consultancy on supporting sales & Cashflow Ideas for New Home Business start Ups
3. Helping Schools set up webinar platforms
4. Helping B2B to set up seminars online

  What do you learn in marketing class that you won't learn in real life marketing?
Posted by: Kurt - 03-17-2020, 11:27 PM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (1)

I've taken a few "formal education" marketing classes. Honestly, they do lack a lot of actionable info. Although I dodged it in my classes, a lot of college marketing classes is going to a mall and conducting surveys. Wink

But they do teach some very important things you probably won't get online in IM.

The first is ethics. You really don't see much discussion of ethics. And I seriously doubt an info product about ethics in marketing would sell very well, because of lack of demand.

Another thing discussed in a college marketing class is basic business law.

Don't take my word on this. I'm old and I took these classes many years ago. I could be wrong. Or maybe I'm right but things have changed. I'm posting this for discussion and not as legal advice.

Here's an example. How much money do I have to make to claim I made "thousands of dollars"?

Most people think "thousands" means two or more. Actually, it means "more than one". That means if I made $1000.01, I can say I made "thousands of dollars".

I sold "dozens" could very well legally mean 13 or more, assuming you couldn't sell a fraction of one. "Scores" would be 21 or more, etc. Someone that lived to be 100 years and a day could say they lived for "centuries".

Another common (and important) legal definition is the use of the word "sale". IIRC a product/service has to be at least 5% off the REGULAR SELLING PRICE. "Launch" or "Grand Opening Sale" should be OK since you're telling folks it hasn't been sold before.

One law I found very interesting at the time was that you couldn't charge someone more for using a credit card. But it was OK to give a "cash discount". No one student or professor, ever understood that one either. Wink
