Over the past month I’ve been implementing Tiffany Lambert’s (Dow) course the Guide To Cashing In On Shiny New Object Syndrome (SNOS). This blog exists as a result of that course. I think it’s time I took a look at how it is performing and see where my thoughts are on it now.
My first action was setting up the blog and to start the blog with my SNOS review series (you can see SNOS Review 1 and SNOS Review Part 4). I’ve followed this up with reviews of 5 more IM products giving a total of 22 posts. I’ve posted at least 3 posts a week during the time blog has been in existence.
I’ve tweeted some of my posts on the twitter account set up for this account. It doesn’t have any followers and I’ve not done anything to promote it. I have also set up a YouTube channel for the blog and have added 5 videos in YouTube Project X Tube style with a link back to my site.
I have made one comment on IM blog with my name as link back to this site.
That is the total of my promotion of the site.
Results So Far
There are two parts to the course on how you can earn some money, either by writing reviews or through the implementation of the courses and products bought.
Unfortunately, to date neither of these have produced an income. I’ll be writing updates for the courses implemented in later posts. (You can read my update of YouTube Power Slam 2.0 here).
The total visits in the last 30 days to my site have been 104. Clicks to offers are 12 with zero sales. The course did not include any methods of backlinking or traffic generation as such. The traffic would happen as you wrote honest in depth reviews and started to rank because of the detail.
My current rankings for the products I’ve reviewed to date are:
Guide to Shiny New Object Syndrome – 17,18,19,20 / Review 14
Erica Stone – Flip Your World – No / Review 17
Reverse Attack Marketing 29,30 / Review 22,23
YouTube Power Slam 2.0 21,22 / Review 25,26
YouTube Project X Tube No / Review No
Online Business Insiders No / Review 13
It does have to be said none of these products are the most highly searched for terms. Even so I have had 104 visits and 77 unique visits since 12 September 2013.
Another benefit that ought to accrue from using the guide is that you properly consider what you are buying before you push the buy button – by reading and analyzing the sales letter fully. This has helped as I have bought less products but I have still bought more than I needed to buy, as some are just stored on my hard drive after a quick read.
I’ve been surprised at the rankings considering how little promotion I’ve done on the site. Although, the results are hardly earth shattering to say the least. But it does look promising (and is in line with the sales letter) that as I add more content with more reviews of different products I’ll see an increase in traffic and following that a hopefully a few sales.
So I still think Guide To Cashing In On Shiny New Object Syndrome is an IM product that will deliver on its promise of cashing in on shiny new object syndrome and might even cure your addiction, like it is mine.. I am going to continue on with my implementation reviews and updates to see what happens.
