An Entire Website Traffic Biz!

The other day I shared with you how you can have an entire PLR business that's all ready to go!

If you missed that post you can see it at https://tacoboutmarketing.com/blog/an-entire-plr-business-made-easy

Today I want to show you the same thing, but in a different niche…

The Website Traffic Niche!

I LOVE this niche because there are so many online business owners looking for ways to get traffic into their business, so you have PLENTY of easy to reach buyers at your finger tips.

Now jumping in is the hard part, but I've made it easy with two things.

1. A completely done for you and ready to go website traffic business!

http://readytogosystems.com/sp/your-own-affiliate-system-v2

With this you'll get a ready to go squeeze page (with a monetized download page) to build your list, a special offer to allow you to make-money instantly from every subscriber, and a 30 day email campaign that is monetized with 8 different products you can become an affiliate for.

This thing is a full on business!

2. A PLR package that you can use to market this business!

https://todayinplr.com/website-traffic-plr

Once you get the above system all setup you can then use this PLR content to market it via several different marketing tactics and monetize-it even further!

These two things give you an entire business and marketing plan for that business!

You could use this as your MAIN business or even a business to β€œcut your teeth on” and learn.

These two things alone are perfect for those of you learning or looking for an extra income-stream so make sure you take a look at them and grab them while you still can.

Note: I am doing PLR content packages for the other Ready To Go Systems also and I’ll let you know about those as I get them done. You can see ALL Ready To Go Systems at http://readytogosystems.com/sp/all

Okay, I just dropped a lot of information on you. πŸ™‚ But, I want to ensure that you see that I have tons of things you can “plug-in” and start using in your business if you're in the Internet marketing/make-money-online niches.

I am super passionate about these niches because #1 my people in these niches (I LOVE you guys) and #2 contrary to what the “gurus” say they are amazing niches to get into to LEARN and profit. I'm in other niches also, but this one has my heart.

So, jump in, build something that will make you-money and once you get good at marketing you can go do ANYTHING you want in ANY other niche you want.

An Entire PLR Business Made Easy!

I just wanted to mention something to you that I was talking about on one of my Facebook Lives last week.

I have a complete ready to go system for those who want to make-money in the PLR niche. You can see that at https://readytogosystems.com/sp/your-own-online-business-v1

You can set that up and have your own squeeze page where you can build your list, a special offer that everyone who joins your list sees after singing up, and an entire 31 day email campaign that is monetized with YOUR affiliate links.

It's all totally “fill in the blanks” and upload. I even have a complete video showing you how to do it step by step.

Now I created a PLR content package that is also on the topic of making-money with PLR and this can be used to market the above once you have it setup. I even have a workshop where you'll be shown how to use ALL the content in this package.

You can see that at https://todayinplr.com/plr-on-plr

So you set your money-making system up, use the PLR content to market it, and boom. πŸ”₯ You've got an entire business and marketing plan.

THIS is what so many of my readers are missing.

You could use this as your MAIN business or even a business to “cut your teeth on” and learn.

These two things alone are perfect for those of you learning or looking for an extra income-stream so make sure you take a look at them and grab them while you still can.

Note: I am doing PLR content packages for the other Ready To Go Systems also and I'll let you know about those as I get them done.

That's it for today… Just wanted to mention that because a lot of people are missing out on how easy I've made this. πŸ™‚

And one last thing… Thanks to all of you who voted in the poll I sent out.

43% wanted the new PLR package on website traffic (Went to work on this today!)

38% wanted a workshop on launching products (This is coming soon)

14% wanted a Ready To Go System for the resale rights niche.

5% of you wanted “something else” and a few emailed me about what they wanted.

I'll do this more often so you all get exactly what you want! This was fun!

Talk soon!

Day 7 – 90 Day Facebook Live Challenge

Today the “sun burn drama” continues, but we're moving forward and talking about doing your own Facebook Live Challenge, listening and not listening to your haters, and the real truth behind YOUR competition.

And here’s the replay of the Day 7!

 

The Workshop Brands

When I first got online I knew I wanted to teach people the things I knew about advertising and marketing their business. In 1998 I started a mailorder advertising business. We used adsheets and opportunity magazines to advertise our offers. I brokered advertising, created ad copy, did typesetting, did direct mail campaigns, and all kinds of stuff for businesses. All to help them get customers through the good ol' mail. Snail mail…

I also had “dealers” (they'd be called affiliates now days) who I allowed to sell my services for a percentage of the profits. They'd run ads selling my services, get orders in the mail, pocket their part of the money, send me the other part along with the order and I'd fulfill the order for their customer.

Yes I'm a dinosaur in the advertising and marketing world at the ripe ol' age of 42 now…

When I came to start a business online in 2004, I instantly started teaching people what I knew. I did coaching groups, and videos series, and ebooks, and everything else you can think of to take my knowledge and get it into other people's hands.

I've now been doing that for 17 years…

Everything I learn I take and I pass it down…

Currently I do that all via online workshops. These workshops are done live via Zoom. You can attend and watch me do and teach everything live. They are also recorded so you can watch them at your convenience if you can't make the lives or just need to rewatch them.

I currently have four brands that offer workshops…

LearningIM – This brand does workshops all about the different internet marketing tactics that I teach. There is an offer to get ALL LearningIM workshops for one bundle price.

You can see all workshops at https://learningim.com/all-workshops-w

PLR Profits Coach – This brand does workshops all about different ways to make money and market with PLR content. There is an offer to get ALL PLR Profits Coach workshops for one bundle price. I recently just added that. πŸ˜‰

You can see all workshops at https://plrprofitscoach.com/all-access-bundle-offer

Passive Income Squad – This brand does workshops all about passive income. There is an offer to get ALL Passive Income Squad workshops for one bundle price.

You can see all workshops at https://passiveincomesquad.com/all-workshops

Backpack Business Lifestyle – This brand does workshops on various business models. Each workshop covers a different online business model that you can build and profit from. There is NO offer to get all of these workshops at one bundle price.

You can see all workshops at https://backpackbusinesslifestyle.com/sp/current-workshops

And… You can tell what brand a workshop is from by looking at the domain name.

Example: If a workshop has the domain name LearningIM.com in it then that's from the LearningIM brand and if you have the bundle offer you get it for-free. Same for the other three brands that I have bundle offers for.

People absolutely LOVE my workshops because it's all hands on learning. This isn't just me talking through a PowerPoint presentation. This is me actively teaching you and showing you as I go. I encourage you to attend AT LEAST one workshop that meets your needs and experience learning from me. You'll walk away with a ton of knowledge that you need, and they're always highly entertaining via my shenanigans.

Hope to see you in my workshops!

I’m In FB Jail Again!

If you've been on Facebook very long you probably at least know someone who has been put in what we call “FB Jail”. This is where Facebook restricts your account for a certain number of days because of something they say goes against their terms of service.

Now first let me say that MOST of the time they DID post something that goes against their terms of service. Just because you think something is ok, doesn't mean that it is. And, at the end of the day it's Facebook's rules and we're just playing their game. They can do whatever they want.

So, you have two options… Play along or quit the game. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

I have been in FB Jail for some stupid things. Like the time I posted a picture of my feet and my cousin said he wanted to tickle them and I commented that I would kick him if he ever did that.

BAM!

3 days in Facebook jail for threatening someone…

Sometimes they are absolutely ridiculous, but I chalk it up to “the cost of doing business”.

Facebook is a great way for me to market my business, interact with my tribe, and it's fun, so I just play their game.

Now today I posted about building the new TacoAboutMarketing.com brand, and second after I made the post not only did they remove the post, but they put me in Facebook jail stating my post went against their community standards on human exploitation.

WHAT????

How does THAT post have anything to do with human exploitation?

Luckily I was able to appeal it, and they said they were wrong, put my post back on Facebook, and let me out of FB jail.

I'm free!!!

So the point of this post is two fold…

I encourage you to follow me on all of my social media platforms. Here are all the links/accounts…

Facebookhttp://www.Facebook.com/liztomey

Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/liztomey

LinkedInhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/liztomey

Twitterhttps://twitter.com/liztomey

YouTubehttps://youtube.com/liztomey

Pinteresthttps://www.pinterest.com/liztomeyoninternetmarketing

TikTokhttps://www.tiktok.com/@liztomey

Second… You don't necessarily need to be on EVERY social media site out there, but find the ones that work for your business and your niche. Build out your profile on each. Build a following on each.

Why?

Well because you never know when they will kick you off, put you in their jail, and/or disappear. Plus not everyone is using the same social media sites so you have more chances to get more people into your business by using multiple social media channels.

If you want to learn how to use social media marketing in your business I have a workshop for each of the BIG social media sites. You can see them all at https://learningim.com/all-workshops-w

I recommend you start with one social network at a time, and as I said, build your profile CORRECTLY and build a following. And then move on to the next one. Rinse and repeat.

So, for now… I'm out of FB Jail and I look forward to sharing all my funny and crazy posts about life and lots of stuff about marketing. See you over there!

What Goes Where???

I've been quiet over the last 2 weeks due to Thanksgiving and then… I took an entire week OFF after Thanksgiving just to recover from the last few months.

I've been working non-stop lately on several different brands and projects and I just needed to take a step back, catch my breath, and “refill my tank”.

We are in the last few weeks of the year and I've still got some big stuff to do, so I needed some big energy.

If you can take a few days off and just “veg out” please do it. Down time is just as important as focused work time.

I had an amazing Thanksgiving surrounded by friends and family along with AMAZING food (I cooked it ALL this year).

You can see the “spread” I put out this year here… https://youtu.be/CntMZzEWPKo

 

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving too!

Anyway… I had someone in one of my Facebook groups ask me about what they should be posting on social media for their business.

That's a hard question to answer because there are so many variables…

What is your goal of your content? Make a sale? Get eye-balls in front of your content? Build your list?

What kind of content does your audience respond to?

Which social media site are you using?

There are so many and each has an audience that likes different stuff!

And more!

But I've made a little guide to help you understand what kind of content to TYPICALLY create for each of the BIG social networks.

Check it out at https://dfysocialmarketingcontent.com/blog/what-content-type-works-for-which-social-media-networks

 

Okay that's it for now…

In the next couple of weeks I have TWO new things coming out that I'll be telling you about that are really going to help you out if you're in the Internet marketing and/or make-money online niche, so stay tuned πŸ™‚

The PayPal Goodbye Wrap Up!

Here we go… The final update on what I've been calling “The PayPal Issue”.

I am officially away from PayPal as my payment processor. Not because my account was shut down. I still (at this time) have a PayPal account, but I'm choosing to walk away from them before they choose to walk away from ME!

Side Note: If you've missed what's going on see my Facebook posts on the issues at…

I have a blog post where I sum these up at http://liztomey.com/blog/saying-goodbye-to-paypal

Okay on to the goods here…

I started this journey in April of 2019 and it's now the middle of August 2019. Almost 4 months of research, reaching out to people, back and forths with merchant accounts, and the list goes on and on.

I kept hitting “walls” and I didn't stop until I got through them. That's how you have to be with EVERYTHING when it comes to creating an online business. You do everything you can to get through anything that tries to stop you from reaching your goals.

That's not what this is about though so I'll save my “Tony Robbins speech” for another day. πŸ˜‰

This post is to help those of you who are looking to get away from PayPal and who are using JV Zoo and/or WarriorPlus as a vendor or as an affiliate.

First off, you've got to look at this from two different sides.

If you're an affiliate and you want to get away from PayPal it's pretty simple. A few settings and you're done.

If you're a vendor though there are a few things you need to do.

I want to talk about these things separately in this post to help your brain keep them separate. If not you'll get super confused. I'm both an affiliate and a vendor and my biggest problem I had with understanding all of this was keeping those two things separate.

So let's start with…

Getting Away From PayPal As An Affiliate Marketer On JVZoo and/or WarriorPlus

This was a WAY easier process for me compared to what I thought it would be.

With JVZoo you need to make sure you have a JV Zoo Pay account setup properly. When you want to promote a product make sure that the vendor is using JV Zoo Pay to pay you your commissions. This will be listed on the Affiliate Details Page where you get your affiliate link.

When you promote the product and make sales all commissions instantly go to your JV Zoo Pay account. You can then withdraw your commissions into your bank account or Payoneer account. You can also withdraw into your PayPal account, but the whole point of this is to get AWAY from PayPal. πŸ™‚

 

I have my JV Zoo Pay account setup so that when I have $500 in commissions they are automatically deposited into my bank account.

A little note here… Some vendors use Stripe to process their payments on JV Zoo. They have to pay you manually. This will be noted on the Affiliate Details Page too. (See the second circle above.) I ONLY promote vendors I personally know if they are going this route. I don't like having to figure out who owes me money with affiliate programs. That's why my main rule with promoting something on JV Zoo is that if they aren't paying via JV Zoo Pay I'm not promoting their product.

Here's the short of it… The only way you can get your commissions into your JV Zoo Pay account is if the vendor processes payments via PayPal or Bluesnap (which is a merchant account). You then withdraw your commissions in your chosen way. To your bank account or Payoneer account.

Now with Warrior Plus it's simply going in and changing a setting in your account so everything is sent to your Warrior Plus Wallet. Then you can withdraw into your bank account. Again you can also withdraw into your PayPal account, but uh… We're getting away from PayPal here. πŸ™‚

The setting for this is hard to find…

Upper right hand corner from the drop down menu select My Account, then Merchant Accounts, then go to Settings and turn ON Force Wallet (Affiliate/Partner).

I can withdraw my available affiliate commissions from my Warrior Plus Wallet into my bank account.

So that has me totally away from PayPal being an affiliate on Warrior Plus and JV Zoo.

Now for those of you who are vendors. Hang on to your hats! πŸ™‚

Getting Away From PayPal As A Vendor On JVZoo and/or WarriorPlus

 

Again, we will start with JV Zoo.

Your options with JV Zoo are to get a merchant account with Bluesnap or Stripe in order to get away from PayPal.

Stripe doesn't work with JV Zoo Pay though so you have to manually pay your affiliates. I'm not willing to do that. I want to automatically pay my affiliates.

So, I am using Bluesnap so commissions are automatically put into the JV Zoo Pay accounts of my affiliates.Β  I really wish I could use Stripe over here. I DO like it better than Bluesnap. I get my money quicker and the reporting is better.

When the customer buys via a JVZoo button, Bluesnap and JVZoo work together (with some unicorn magic or technology or whatever) and put the affiliate's commission into THEIR JVZoo Pay account, gives JVZoo their fees, and leaves my profits in my Bluesnap account.

This is all done automatically…

Note: See JVZoo's documentation on selling on their platform at https://jvzoo.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/200334067-Sellers

No money comes into my PayPal account. It's all processed by Bluesnap and they automatically deposit my profits into my bank account.

Once you have your Bluesnap account setup and your JV Zoo Pay account then when you setup a product you simply select Bluesnap to process your payments and to pay affiliates with JV Zoo Pay.

So make sure that you get the accounts setup before setting up your product. The initial account setups is what takes the most time. Once you have them setup you just select what you want to use to process payments when you create products moving forward.

On the vendor side of Warrior Plus…

They only allow you to process payments through PayPal or Stripe. Bluesnap isn't an option over there.

Over there I'm processing payments with Stripe and affiliate commissions are paid into the affiliates Warrior Plus Wallet. Then they can withdraw in their chosen way.

Like with JV Zoo you have to get your accounts setup. I had to setup my Stripe account in there, and then when I setup the product I have to select that I'm processing via Stripe.

So when a customer purchases through a Warrior Plus button Stripe and Warrior Plus work together (again with unicorn magic I think) and aput the affiliate's commission into THEIR Warrior Plus Wallet, gives Warrior Plus their fees, and leaves my profits in my Stripe account.

Stripe deposits my profits into my bank account daily.

And again… This is all done automatically.

Note: See Warrior Plus's documentation on selling on their platform at https://help.warriorplus.com/en/collections/170745-selling-on-warriorplus

The big take away here with BOTH of these is that you have to get your “processing” accounts setup first, and then when you setup your product to get your buy buttons is when you select what you use to process payments and pay affiliate commissions.

The Wrap Up

 

I have now done FOUR launches using BOTH JVZoo and WarriorPlus and many have asked me which one I prefer.

Warrior Plus or JVZoo?

I've thought long and hard about what I would say here, and even if I would even say anything at all.

Why?

Well it goes back to the old saying…

“You don't poo where you eat.”

I no longer “eat” at PayPal so I'll “poo” all over them. I wont however speak ill of either JV Zoo or Warrior Plus because I “eat” at both of these places. Both have their pros and cons.

Let me say that one more time…

Both. Have. Their. Pros. And. Cons.

Like I hate how “clunky” and confusing WarriorPlus can be.

I also hate that I can't easily tell who pays how and what without some digging on JV Zoo.

I do have a favorite and it's JVZoo.

There are many reasons and some of those reasons I wont discuss. πŸ˜‰

Both have their pros/cons (as I said), but what makes me say JVZoo is hands down the best is…

1. I personally know the CEO of JVZoo. Laura Cassleman!

NEVER has a CEO ever reached out to me personally to help me with my business. Laura cares about her JVZoo affiliates and it shows. Not only did she go to battle for me with issues with merchant accounts, but has done so for others. Laura is a shining example of what a true CEO is. I can't thank her enough for her help through all of this.

2. The Support team is phenomenal.

I also know several people from the support team personally. πŸ™‚

JVZoo has a support desk and a Facebook group. I think I used the support desk a very long time ago, but I always use the Facebook group and have an answer within 24 hours to my endless questions. Usually in MOMENTS! That's important when you're trying to get a product launched. I need answers and solutions NOW and I get them.

3. It's easier to use.

As a vendor the JV Zoo system is easier to use in my opinion.

Once you have your merchant account and you've gone through all the settings to get it hooked up, using JVZoo to get your funnel setup is easier to use than Warrior Plus. Maybe that's because I've used them for so many years and just get their system or maybe it's because it is in fact just easier to use. *shrugs*

What I do like about Warrior Plus BETTER though is that I can use Stripe over there and it automatically pays my affiliates over there into their wallets. I like Stripe better than Bluesnap. From the ease of using it to the reports to them paying out faster than Bluesnap. I just like Stripe better.

So there you go… That's how I've gotten away from using PayPal as an affiliate and a vendor on both JVZoo and WarriorPlus.

It's been a heck of a journey, but I'm really liking running my business without the fear of losing my PayPal account.

Putting all your eggs in one basket is a HORRIBLE idea. I should have NEVER had only one way to accept payments, and I'll never do that again.Click To Tweet

I currently have 4 ways to take payments. PayPal (I refuse to use that one though) , Bluesnap, Stripe, and Cash App.

Cash App? What, Liz?Β 

I'll be talking about that one in the future. πŸ˜‰

My next one I'm looking to use is ClickBank, but that probably wont happen until early 2020, so stay tuned.

Until then… Thoughts? Opinions? Questions? Feedback? Let me know in the comments below…

Saying Goodbye To PayPal!

After years using PayPal with many different platforms (JVZoo, Warrior+, Zaxxa, RAP, PayDotCom, etc) I'm moving away from using them as a payment processor.

I will still be using JVZoo and Warrior+ as my selling platforms, but I'll be processing through a merchant account now.

That's not going to change many things for you. You'll still access your downloads from me the way you always have through the platform you purchase from me, but you'll just not be able to use PayPal to pay me any longer.

If you have a PayPal debit card you will be, but from here on out I'll be using a merchant account to process my payments.

Why?

Simply because using PayPal has become a risk.

Many people are having their PayPal accounts shut-down and no one knows a REAL reason. PayPal is the “money-God” and can do whatever they want. It's all in their TOS.

At this moment I still DO have a PayPal account, I'm just being proactive and moving away from them on MY terms. πŸ™‚

I started talking about this a few months ago on Facebook and what I was doing to make these changes.

If you're not a Facebook friend, I'm currently at my 5000 friend limit, but you can follow on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000399258867

I've made TWO posts about my move away from PayPal and they are below…

Post 1: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2277548948935058&id=100000399258867

Post 2: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2282629025093717&id=100000399258867

I will be showing my tribe how to do the same thing if they choose to do so.

The first thing you need to do is if you're an affiliate is get everything to where you're being paid by check or direct deposit. I've already begun that process and the main networks I use to get my affiliate links (JVZoo and Warrior+) was a pretty simple process.

If you're a vendor (a product seller) it's a little bit more tricky. I've ALMOST got the process done on JVZoo, and the process has been completed for W+. It's honestly easier with Warrior+, but I prefer to sell on JVZoo because I personally know the people behind it and the service there has been amazing.

I'll keep you guys up to date on everything once I have it all in order. I'll be doing a video showing the process for each of the main networks I work with (JVZoo and Warrior+), and also my journey on to a new network in the coming months.

But as I said… The important thing to know is not much will change on your end. I'm just being smart and proactive and setting up multiple ways to take payments online as EVERY business should do.

If you have any questions and want to talk about this make sure you're in the Team Tomey Facebook group where we talk about these kinds of things. πŸ™‚
