Top Posts and Affiliate Marketing
Looking through this site’s logs, I see that the top posts are for my humor story on Dean Kosage in Who Moved My MonaVie and What Is XS Gold: Part 1. In aggregate, however, all of my posts on Orrin Woodward would probably take the top spot:
Now, let’s see how these terms stack up on Google compared with some other searches:
- iPhone: 297,000,000
- Red Bull: 21,900,000
- Amway: 4,110,000
- XanGo: 2,500,000
- MonaVie: 1,100,000
- Quixtar: 549,000
- Orrin Woodward: 18,800
- XS Gold: 4,190
- Dean Kosage: 1,790
I was a little surprised by Quixtar’s low ratings, until I remembered the corporation’s rather heavy-handed approach to how IBOs can market their business. One of the areas of transformation that I feel the corporation needs to work on is allowing IBOs to more effectively market their products and services to customers beyond the face-to-face, one-on-one approach. While I understand why in the past they didn’t want IBOs to be advertising in newspapers and TV ads, but times have changed.
For instance, why can’t an IBO have hyperlinks to products on their blog that link directly to their IBO account like with Amazon Associates? Right now, it appears customers have to go through this portal — often password-protected — in order to buy something from the corporation through that IBO. That’s not making things any easier, you know. IBOs, please correct me if I’m wrong on this one.
Technology is designed (although it doesn’t always succeed) to make things easier and more efficient. Sometimes I think the corporation is afraid of embracing technology because it wants to keep a level playing field.
