How Much Does An Account System Cost?

I see a lot of people talking about killing it 24/7. Note the word “TALKING”, but I don’t know of many doing. Why? Because I’ve seen it first hand. Guys who really walk the walk, rather than just talk the talk constantly launch, constantly need safe sites, translations, landers to feed their profit machine.

Not a lot of affs are willing to step up and create systems, they all dream about it the same way they dream about making their own brand and going ‘legit’. But it never happens, because they are lazy, and well talking is easier than actually doing. It’s sort of like how an ex ecom guru had all these millionaire students, but when it came time to throw together 20k for his funeral none of them had any money to step up.

So how much does it cost to put together and operate an account system so you can launch consistently?

We’re going to be basing this calculation on not buying accounts from the rip off sellers charging $700-1200 per account, but rather getting the accounts direct or from sellers who understand things have changed and its not 2016 anymore.

This calculation is based on having 10 accounts at the ready every single AMERICAN WORK DAY (Monday-Friday) *I say American, because some countries work Sunday to Thursday and have weekend on Friday & Saturday (something I didn’t know until a year ago).

Part #1 – Account Aquisition – Let’s assume we’re “renting” from real people, we pay them $50 a month each. We need to have 10 people every single day, that’s $500 per day just to pay out to people. – so 5 days * $500 = $2500 dollars per week for acquisition costs

Part #2 – Initial Safe Spend Funding & Cards – Cards can cost anywhere from $20 to $200 per card, this is also a cost we can’t ignore it. Putting money in the cards usually has a service fee, and also a loading fee. So If we pay in $100, our card might only have $70 by the time we subtract all costs. So for 10 accounts, we’re looking at initial $1000 /day or $5000/week for the initial parts and card costs

Part #3 – Staffing Costs, Tech Costs – We will need a project manager and a tech guy that knows how to do ads, work with profile management software or VMs, configure servers, proxies etc. We are going to have to pay $1000 per week for a good small team, plus we will have to pay around $250 per week for a profile management system + proxy solution.

Part #4 – Creative Materials – To have your own accounts system you need to have everything at the ready. If you don’t want to do it yourself, you can outsource. Outsourcing is more scalable, but if you are superhuman you could create 10x of everything yourself. You need safe sites created for every single account, so if you are shooting for 10 accounts per day, that means 10 safe sites per day. You will need landing pages translated, angles updated, ads created, you will need them all uploaded and properly added to your RedTracker and you will need all the creative materials added at the ready, in a central location like basecamp for each ad account so your team can launch. 10 Safe Sites at a discount will run you $1000, getting landers ready & translated, anywhere from $40-80 each. Let’s estimate the weekly cost for creative materials to run around $5000.

Part #5 – Going BH. It will take initially 3-4 weeks for the system to spin up, you won’t be able to run anything until then as it has to go through a cycle that requires PATIENCE and investing tons of money.

Let’s do a lil calculation

Week #1 COSTS – $2500 acquisition + $5000 safe spend/cards + $1250 for farm crew & system + $5000 for creatives == You are looking at over $10,000 for week #1, #2, and #3 – bringing the total to around $30k before you can launch.

When you launch at this scale, you will have to pay for the BH team, a person who just launches campaigns, this is around $1200 per month. You will also have to continue to pay for new acquisitions and the entire system plus also fund the BH campaigns.

You will get insta-banned on many accounts, you will run stuff and it will render 0 conversions. Just because something’s a winner for someone else, it won’t be for you.

As you can see, a true account system costs around $30,000 per month just to get accounts at the ready. Most people out there just talk, but they don’t actually have a true consistent system in place because it costs a pretty penny. Only 5% of affiliates do.

5 Tips on How to Build Your Business Using LinkedIn Videos

Some still believe in the notion that LinkedIn is just an online CV, for freelancers to find jobs and get employed.

But the truth is, LinkedIn is a social network like any other. Like with others you can sell your products and promote your brand. You can find useful tips about Linkedin on this forum. In this post, I will focus on Linkedin videos.

Linkedin requires a specific approach to video creation. In general, you should create a different type of video for every network. Utilize the platform and find a way to market your business.

Every week there are over 9 billion impressions on Linkedin feed. Only 3 million is sharing updates. This means a lot of eyeballs and not a lot of competition.

What is specific about Linkedin is that ist a network for business people. So, your content will be in front of many important eyes that can change your business success overnight.

Posting good content and commenting is important to build your presence on Linkedin. However, videos have an even more significant impact.

Building Trust

Through your videos you are showing the person behind the brand. Authenticity is the new currency of business dealings. Companies want to know that they are dealing with a real person and that person is very active in his network. In general, you will always trust more and have more confidence in a person (and his business) that are out there and are getting great feedback. They truly are experts in their field. You will pick them over a company that doesn’t have anything beyond a website and some low-quality content on social networks.

Promotion

  1. Show up in the comments. Your name shoving up as a contributor on the platform is making an impact on the network. People will appreciate you showing interest in their content and giving quality advice, sharing your own experience and such. Linkedin algorithms also love to see an active person, especially if you get replies, likes and such. So, show interest and people will show interest in you.
  2. Upload a video to provide value. You probably already have some community. So, give them some value and share your knowledge. Respond to every comment that your video is getting. Linkedin is not like YouTube, you will not have hundreds of comments. So, you will have time and you have no excuse not to comment.
  3. Optimize your profile. Make optimization for any search terms that you want to be found.
  4. Create a personalized hashtag. This is not just to leave hashtags on comments and posts. With your personal hashtag, people can find your posts. So, when people move around the platform and use your hashtag, you will get tagged not just by your name but your hashtag as well.
  5. Just start making videos. Yes, it sounds obvious but many people are afraid to do it. Prepper good content and start recording. You don’t have to and you won’t be perfect. You have to start somewhere and the sooner you do, the sooner you will start making an impact. Because the audience that will see your content will actually care and it will have the impact. Unlike any other social media.

How can I make my video viral?

Well, at the moment, there is a perfect opportunity that Linkedin is offering to marketers. Linkedin algorithms really like marketing content and you have the opportunity to get a ton of organic promotion with a quality video. This opportunity will not last forever. Use the opportunity right now.
The Linkedin algorithm has a much slower decay than the other networks. This means that your content will last for a much longer time than on social networks. If it’s popular it will stay for weeks in people’s feed.

The LinkedIn algorithm works on velocity. The more content you make, the more you are rewarded. So, treat your Linkedin posting like a longer version of Tweeter. Even better if you use videos for a longer continuation of what you wrote.

While we are there. You need a copywriting hook at the beginning of your post. The first one or two sentences. This is the first thing that people will see in your post. You need to hook them so they will read the rest.

Promote your video on other channels. As general advice, share your Linkedin URL wherever you can. Put it in signature and description of YouTube videos or other networks, on forums…

The relatable story will always get attention. Something like – How most people are terrible at sending sales messages on Linkedin. Most users have experienced this and will talk about it. You can do even more than others. Because usually, this is all that people will talk about. For additional engagement and content quality, add your tips on how to make a good sale massage or how to approach people.

Make an interview with an influencer, a person that is known as an expert in their area, just whoever you can find. People know how important it is to have media exposure. Plus it’s nice when somebody asks you for an interview because they think you are an expert in some area.

Share a controversial point of view. Your post has to have some level of professionalism, so do not talk about politics, religion, some other sensitive topics. It’s best to share some different points of view in your industry. Something that would spark a conversation among affiliate or digital marketing professionals.

Quick Tips in coming up effective youtube video angle

Coming up with angles. Something that is not only challenging on Youtube, but indeed challenging to do, in general.

Every social media platform has some specifics and you can’t make videos that fit all channels. For YouTube, you need to divert people’s attention with Title and thumbnail, keep the video entertaining and don’t make it too long. It’s recommended to maintain some professional quality of your videos.

All that doesn’t matter if people are not interested in your content. Also, you need to offer different types of content. Interesting content that people can’t wait to see is what will get you the views.

The Internet is full of advice on how to get notest and how to make a lot of money from your youtube channel. It’s all-important for sure. However, you can’t make money if your content is not good. It should be your number one concern. Everything else can be fixed in time. But the content of your video, you can’t change that. It’s hard to improve your channel in time if your initial content is not good.

Let see how you can make creative and interesting content for your channel.

Research

This is the number one mistake that people make, creating content that they like. Or assuming that you know what your audience wants.

Let me first show you the tool called Keywords Everywhere. It’s completely free. It comes as an extension to Chrome and FireFox. With this extension, you will see all the keywords associated with a webpage. On Google search, you can see keywords from multiple websites. If you type a keyword, you will see what people are also researching. You will also see data like CPC and volume for every keyword.

A good strategy is to type your ideas into the YouTube search bar. You will see that Youtube is using your keyword to suggest different things to watch.
YouTube trends are also very valuable for content ideas. You will see what is being watched and what topics are popular.

Google trends are always a good place to search for ideas for content. It’s awesome because it will not just tell you what trends are popular but also when something is trending. For example, you would presume the interest for Halloween is starting in October, but actually, Google trend shows that the interest starts at the beginning of September. So, thanks to Google Trends you will hit the market as soon as your niche topic starts trending. Now you have a great chance to have a maximum amount of views on a particular topic.

Survey your audience

Ask your audience questions on a regular basis. It doesn’t matter how big your audience is. They will grow and any feedback is good to have.

Best way to find out what people want to see on your channel? Ask them in a video! They are not just giving you ideas, they are suggesting topics that they care about. Topics that your audience wants to see. So, the more feedback you can get from your audience the better.

You can also use pols to have people more involved. Not just YouTube pols but you can make them on Facebook or Tweeter. What is important is to engage your audience.

Most people don’t know is that after some time you will get a Community tab on YouTube. So, you can post your survey questions there.

Again, don’t assume what people want to watch.

Also, with surveys, you will get the idea of what language your audience speaks and demographic data will show you who you are mostly addressing.

Related Channels

It is always recommended that you look at your competition. A great source of content ideas in our case.

It’s even more important if you don’t have a big audience. Looking at what their audience likes will help you understand what your audience will enjoy as well.

If you are not new to YouTube you can see related channels, it’s on the right side. A lower side of your page. You can see what videos are working for related channels and what content is interesting to their audience.

There is also a service called VidiQ. With this tool, you will get a Trending tab that gives you an option of browsing videos from related channels. What is different is that here you can see a view velocity. This means you can see videos that are the most viewed per hour. So, some 6-month-old video can suddenly get 10 views per hour.

The whole point is to learn what is popular with your competitors and to make something similar. Then there is a big chance that people will see your video among suggested videos. You know what – suggested videos are the number one traffic source on Youtube.

For example, if someone’s (from your niche) video is making 30 views per hour, creating similar content will get you on that popularity train. If you get 5 views per hour from that its a huge benefit.

Hopefully, this will get your creative juices flowing and you will be able to create a lot of interesting content from these tips.
