Auto Webinar Press Review
I’m taking a short break from writing and editing to discuss offline listbuilding.
List Building…Who Does It?
I think it’s interesting that when I talk to a number of off-line marketers and information product, reader’s, there don’t seem to be many concrete solutions as to how to do list-building. If you think about it, outside of off-line marketing…list building is THE primary thing. I’ve seen a number of information products, as you have too, on how to prospect and “get” clients.
The Money is In the List, Right?
But if you came to off-line marketing in the way that I did, you probably came through learning Internet Marketing. And what is it that we have heard since the beginning? We heard that the money is in the list. But as of yet I have not seen anyone in our sphere really talk about list building to a great extent.
Admittedly, I don’t get around much. So it could be that someone really knows how to do it and has shown other off-line marketers and I have missed it. So I think it’s just fair to say, rather than no one is teaching it AND that I have not seen a lot of discussion on it. I’ve seen just about everything else.
Not Everyone is Ready To Buy
And it would make sense to me that the key to being able to sell to off-line business owners is to do so with a drip feed system to contact. My friend Steve Rosenbaum is very passionate (and right) about the fact that most of the people who come to you aren’t ready to buy. The question is then how do you continue to discuss with them the keys to marketing their business.
And so while I’ve seen a number of off-line marketers with big lists of other off-line marketers, I have not seen a number of off-line marketers with big lists of business owners. Or if they have them. They’re not talking about it.
So that brings me to this product: Auto-WebinarPress. I sent one e-mail to the GainMindshare Community about it before, and I don’t think I did a good job of really showing it in terms of what it really is and what it does. I think I treated it like any other affiliate promotion, and send it out with a link suggesting that you take a look at the sales page and by.
Much Less Than Evergreen Business Systems
That really doesn’t do this automated webinar product justice. Of course, I did stress the fact that if you were to go out and buy a similar product called Evergreen Business Systems, you would pay about $500. But there’s more to looking at what Mohammed Ali as here.
Showing You Some Of This
So I’m going to take a few minutes and actually show it to you. At some point I’ll put together a video doing the same thing, but for now you can take a look at this post at the things that might interest you most.
What I like about this product, more than anything else is it will help you to do list building. Whether you choose to run pay per click traffic to your auto webinar, or you choose to use Facebook traffic. I think that the opt in pages that Mohammed has, associated with this webinar are attractive enough and field tested enough in order to drop prospects to give their name and e-mail address.
The other thing about the auto webinar system is that he has it in WordPress. And that is one thing that I think I like a lot about this. The interface is easy to use, and accessible because you don’t have to figure out how to put up a separate site in order to make it work.
The other thing is that it doesn’t require an ongoing service. There is a great service, called Stealth Seminar that I have had it once, during my time in Internet marketing. I think it does a great job, and is a premium service, if that’s what you want. However, this webinar system by Mohammed Ali does a good enough job of getting people to opt into your list, and to give you all of the features that automate webinars give you.
One of the things that I always look for in software, is evidence that it’s going to be updated. I want to make sure that if I’m going to use it that at the very least, the developer is going to make the pretense of keeping it up. Those of us who have been the off-line space any length of time, can probably count on one hand the number of pieces of software that continue to work beyond the first year in which it’s being purchased.
I recently received this e-mail from Mohammed. And in it, you can see that he’s got a number of things that he is updating and changing according to the request of his users. I think that the users are doing a good job of trying to adapt his webinar system to both the online and off-line space.
If I take you inside of the panel you’ll see a paint by number system for you to operate. It’s almost impossible, to mess this thing up.
You other thing about what Mohammed has here is that he allows you to do you to do YouTube. Therefore, you don’t have to have a lot of fancy hosting in order to run your auto webinar. If you can get your video uploaded to YouTube, then you can have it, a webinar that runs all the time.
One of the updates that Mohammed recently sent out was one where he is working or actually has already included to get the YouTube video to autoplay. This is fantastic because if you already have my local video mogul, you already know how to put external links in your video. That means that while your auto webinar is playing you can bring a call to action that will be clickable to the website where you want your visitors to go.
Since I use Aweber, I’m happy that he has Aweber Integration listed here. But he also has MailChimp, Infusionsoft and other major autoresponders nicely integrated. I’ve got a little bit of confidence here that this software is going to be a winner and will eventually have to go up in price because of the number of features he updates.
In short, I think this is worth a second look if you haven’t considered it already for your off-line business. Now the webinar software is NOT going to magically build your list. But the way you would use this is to set up a number of automated webinars that literally give people the information that you know they want as business owners and then you begin to drive them to the Opt-In Page. By giving them a call to action in order to sign up for your list, that’s a lot less intimidating than trying to get them to buy from you, the very first time you meet them.
What I like most about this plug-in, is that you can use it on unlimited sites. That means that you can provide your customer with a way to build their list. You can literally help them put together a webinar that will attract their customers and clients. I think a very easy way to do that would be to set up an automated webinar, answering one of the 20 frequently asked questions that your customer gets, and then running Facebook ads or PPC traffic to it.
So I think that the most appropriate bonus, even though I don’t want it cheapen this by putting a bunch of digital products in here that you’re not going to use, I’m going to add some information here on doing Pay Per Click as well as Facebook Ads. Although these products will help you at the very least to get started by setting up your webinar and putting up some ads and starting to get some traffic to it. And of course you can do the same thing for your clients.
I actually think it would be more impressive for you to do this for your client, than it would be for yourself. Although list building is definitely something that is at a premium. If you know how to build a list in your local area, it sounds like you’ll be one of the minority. With all due respect to myself and other product creators, it’s much more important that you build your list of small business owners than you remaining on mine or any other off-line marketers/trainers list.
That said, here is the link to Mohammed’s product. I did not get the OTO, although you may see a need to get it. He’s covering how to get traffic to the actual webinar. To be honest I don’t know how relevant is going to be to the off-line space. But if you decide to get it, and you find out please let me know. The plug-in is more than enough for you to work with immediately. You could put this plug-in into your live website set up a capture page and webinar, and literally begin running ads as soon as you get.
And as for these reasons that I think this is well worth your time, even if you took a look at it before and decided, well, that’s not for me.
Okay well my break from writing is now over, and I’ve got to get back to it. But take a look at this and get it before he raises the price on this. I’m not saying that to you because I’m trying to play some kind of “false scarcity trick”. I’m saying that because I’m looking at the updates that he’s doing, and pretty soon it’s going to get to be to the point where it’ll only make sense for him to keep supporting the product by raising the price.
This guy has got to raise the price in order to keep the high level of quality that he has. That’s one saying you should consider getting it now.
