Get access to this simple but very effective way to rewrite content that helps you write better content faster. Perfect for rewriting PLR.


Tuelz Custom Software + Content Manipulation Training:

Important Disclaimer: I can't guarantee Tuelz will work on your system.
Tuelz are my own WINDOWS text manipulation and content multiplying software. I created Tuelz about 15 years ago so I can't promise you they all will work on your WIN machine. There are a few Tuelz that won't work for various reasons, but they aren't needed for what we'll use them for. They have worked on all of my PCs I've used over time.

You'll learn my unique methods for multiplying and "spinning" content. Even though these methods and software are over 15 years old, they are still more potent than any other content "spinning" methods offered today.

Tuelz isn't about taking an article and spinning it into 50 versions of the same article. It's about taking "chunks" of content from various sources like PLR or your own content, mixing, matching and "dedooping" them to create 100s or even 1000s of articles that offer quality content.

If done correctly, this method will take you a full afternoon and is NOT a quick solution. However, after a few hours you'll have enough content to fill scores of Web 2.0 and Parasites with legit, quality content for powerful link building.
See the first post below to download a few basic Tuelz to test them on your syste.
Please no refunds as Tuelz are just a part of this VIP membership.

  A mini rant against Google
Posted by: Kurt - 04-11-2020, 08:53 PM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - No Replies

I got an email from Google recently. Here's the paragraph I have an issue with:

Quote:Additionally, we want to reassure you that Google will continue to pay you according to our terms and conditions. You can read more about our payment cycles in the Help Center (Google AdMob, AdSense, Ad Manager).

So, they're making a promise to keep their obligation? How about they release everyone's money NO MATTER HOW SMALL instead of only paying out when someone has earned $100 or more? Maybe make the minimum $5 instead of $100 so people can get the money they earned?

I've commented on this in the past about wondering how much money owed to affilaites of all kinds that isn't paid because they haven't reached a certain threshold.  Google isn't a big deal to me in this situation, but I have promoted other affiliate programs and earned something like $42 and the minumum to be paid is $50. Google should pay EVERYONE what they owe in these times, not spin how they are going to keep their legal responsibility and that $27.58 may be a big deal to a lot of people even if it isn't to Google.

  What things in nature amaze you?
Posted by: Kurt - 04-11-2020, 06:59 PM - Forum: Water Trough - Off Topic - Replies (22)

Spiders being able to weave webs amazes me. Their brains are so small yet they have the insticts to weave a web with no training. And every web is different because the surroundings are different.

Also...have you seen the honey bee waggle dance? Bees use the waggle dance to tell others in the hive where they can find the best sources of pollen and nectar.

  Ebook to Speech aka Text to Voice
Posted by: Jeffery - 04-10-2020, 07:37 PM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (1)

Many Internet Marketers sell eBooks as we all know. There are tons of ebooks available as we all know. Some are better than others as we all know. Some are so good that many of us can't wait to get our hands on them as well know. Unfortunately, eBooks sales have been tapering off as we know. So, since we all know these things about eBooks.. what exactly sells an eBook in 2020 compared to 1999, 1998 etc.?

Enter "Ebook to Speech aka Text to Voice"


Ebook to Speech in form of audio is the "new" eBook? Surely nothing "new" to many old-school marketers?

Recently I read a thread on a popular Internet Marketung forum wherein someone asked how to sell their eBook. The original poster said they wrote the eBook, placed it for sale on their website and there were little to no sales. After a few questions I discovered the website actuallly had decent organic traffic as well as decent paid traffic. Digging in a little deeper the traffic was buyer traffic. And there was very little email subscribers. At first glance the website had all the makings of a website that should be converting.

Now, this same thread received all kinds of suggestions from different people with good intentions. Many of those suggestions were people simply reguritating other people's comments. You know what I mean. The original poster was at a loss as to what to do to increase conversions. It appeared that the thread would eventually become one of those threads that lingered and would become full of S P A M M E R S.

So, I sorta kinda stepped in and asked the original poster if I could see the website and make a suggestion or two if warrented. No promises of anything except that I promised to treat the original poster and his business as I would like to be treated myself. The original poster agreed and shared the links to his website and the eBook.

To be honest, the website was a very good site and the eBook was also very good.

I conveyed to the original poster I could make two suggestions that I knew would convert. All I asked is the original poster try my suggestions for two weeks and then report back to the forum the results.

First, I explained the eBook was marketed to the right demgraphic. Alas, the media for todays demographic simply is video and audio instead of the written word. If anything the written word is best kept short and sweet (you know what I mean) and best reserved for the salescopy. Seriously, nothing new to people experienced with actually making sales from their works.

After transcribing the eBook (text) to speech (audio) and offering both the eBook (pdf) and audio (mp3) the conversion was substantial. So much so that it made the eBook a success in it's niche.

One of the great things about text to audio is there are many ways to create additional content for websites as a whole and increase converisons of new works, old works (think PLR) and even future works! Yes future works. W eall know about building suspense and all thet.

During the transition from a lone eBook to eBook and Audio there are a few tools that are needed to make it happen. Here is a site that we used that is cheap enough to get an idea of how easy this can be. Also, you can upload a short PDF (suggest an excerpt from a eBook) free and get that idea:

https://www.naturalreaders.com/online/

Also, Kurt spoke to this method here:
Amazon Polly: Text to Speech
https://pheeds.com/phorum/showthread.php?tid=181

Struggling to make that first sale, struggling to increase conversions, struggling to create new content forr your websits, struggling to do it all on the cheap? Not anymore. Idea

Enjoy.

  Sneaky domain name hack
Posted by: Kurt - 04-05-2020, 08:07 AM - Forum: Cash Cow Marketing - Replies (1)

Here's a little "gray hat" trick I use.

Get a domain name similar to this: com-special.info

Note the com- at the beginning of the domain name and it's a .info extension.

com-specials most likely isn't available, but brainstorm words you can use in place of "special".

Using Namecheap or other register service (or Cpanel) add a subdomain redirect to it such as:
BestAcne

And the domain will appear as:
BestAcne.com-special.info

It makes the domain look like it is:
BestAcne.com

You can use any keywords as the "sub domain" and it will look relevant. Just try to come up with a good generic word to use with com- at the begining.

Some examples:
dogtraining.com-special.info
CarInsurance.com-special.info
Keto.com-special.info
Dating.com-special.info

  How long have you had your present phone number and main email address?
Posted by: Kurt - 03-27-2020, 10:42 PM - Forum: Water Trough - 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.
