If you would like to take a look at my initial synopsis of the Instant Payday Network program please follow.
The purpose of this post is to follow up with where I am at so far with IPN.
The Initial Setup
As I mentioned in the initial review of the product referenced above the purpose of the IPN is to refer people over to a couple of websites in order to sign up for a number of offers to things ranging from credit cards, to gaming subscriptions, to loan services, etc.
The two websites promoted within this program (where all the offers are located) are called Express My Cash Freebies and Double My Cash Freebies. You would refer people to these sites through Instant Payday Network’s landing page, the page following the page you submit your email through, or capture page.
At both of these websites you must click on a couple of offers. You must accrue 1 credit on each site in order to be able to refer any other people and to gain commissions from the referrals. The process of enrolling for any of the services or subscriptions, etc. is really quite easy. Just follow the instructions.
A couple of cautionary pointers –
- Do Not just click on any of the offers. My suggestion is to click on reputable companies’ offers such as Discover, CreditReport.com, etc. This is because some of the other offers, often the ones from companies you have never heard of, can be quite spammy. Frankly, I am not really convinced of their security measures either.
- Don’t shy away from the offers that cost money. A couple of bucks here or there shouldn’t be a big deal considering what we are expecting for turnaround on this program, right?
- The paid offers, with the exception of GameFly (still waiting to be credited), seem to offer their credits faster. This is why I included #2 above.
- Don’t forget to cancel your memberships. You don’t want repeated payments coming out of your accounts each month, unless of course you want to keep the products.
- Don’t expect instant credits. This is what I did and it has cost me.
Expecting instant credits has cost me because I only filled out enough of the offers to receive the exact amount of credits necessary. Now I still cannot actually start promoting the darn program because I will not receive the commissions. I have now waited a full week and I don’t know about you guys but I am personally not okay with waiting a week to start making money.
But enough about the My Cash Freebies sites. I am going to go ahead and complete a couple more offers so I can get the necessary credits tonight. Now on to the real product and the continuation of What is Instant Payday Network?
Simply put, the marketing is largely done for you. This is very nice if you have any idea how much goes into creating a product that will sell. You will soon if you go through the sales funnel (1. Capture page, also known as the opt-in with email and name, 2. Landing page, the initial program or product, 3. The upsell, or backend). These can vary substantially in that many programs such as IPN offer free programs and material. These may be in the form of E-books, marketing programs like IPN, etc.
However, the real cash cow for affiliates is that backend upsell program that often costs more and promises more. In this case the backend is Empower Network, supposedly a great way to create income from home. More to come on that in future posts.
As I said, all of these concepts are covered for you. Upon joining the program you are given the sales funnel, the most difficult part of the whole affiliate business model to produce. Instant Payday Network provides you with the capture page, landing page, and the necessary tools to get people to the backend – though you have to sign up for that backend in order to gain financially from it. I did, though before joining this particular program.
As I said in the initial review - What is Instant Payday Network? - you had better be careful if you visit because the Dave’s, founders of Empower Network, are really good at selling their product – which perhaps is why it does so good – but does cost $.
Although I have been unable to actually employ these methods yet for the aforementioned fear of not receiving commissions for my work, I can tell you a good deal about what is offered within the Instant Payday Network affiliate program for training.
Jeff Buchanan is the IPN owner and also the resident trainer for the most part. For those new to advertising, such as myself, I personally felt a bit relieved to see a decent amount of info regarding the advertising side of this affiliate program.
Specifically, Jeff provides a number of avenues in order to generate traffic to your site. Of course, the idea here is to generate good targeted traffic that will convert so the primary focus is on that.
Some of the training Jeff provides consists creating reviews through YouTube, setting up backlinks to the YouTube video reviews, creating online ads, creating classified ads, blog training, Google Rank training, and more.
Jeff also provides some examples of ads, including images and banner ads, that have been successful for this program. Some related advice is just to change them up a little for different affect.
Last but not least there is the autoresponder feature. This is something we affiliates would normally have to pay for so it is great to receive this as a free service. This service comes with some of the free dashboard features such as leads, or opt-ins from your capture page, and stats associated with your pages.
More to come very soon once I am up and running. I will follow up with some updates regarding the content from this post along with my ongoing progress with Instant Payday Network
Good luck with all your endeavors!!
