support ticket unanswered
« on: January 04, 2017, 07:41:47 PM »
I submitted a support ticket more than a month ago, nobody gave a crap about it. I even updated it 3, or 4 times, even submitted it with HIGH urgency, still nobody bothered to answer.

Shall I copy/paste my whiny ticket here, or will someone just answer it?

    I do understand your frustration.  NO ONE has been able to contact Mark since late October.  We dont know what is going on, I know Mark was dealing with some health issues and something happened to his mother.  That's all we know.  Mark is the only one responsible for handling support tickets. 

If its a technical issue unrelated to the hosting package someone here might be able to help you out.

Yeah, well I couldn't know that, could I? Therefore you didn't have to bold words like I'm an idiot and need to be shot in the eyes with BIG, BOLD letters.

And no, it's not a technical issue. My questions for him were meant to help me figure out if the upgrade is worth taking considering my current situation. But, I guess they will go unanswered since Mark is unavailable.

The bold words were not meant to treat you as if you were an idiot just to emphasize a point.  I apologize if it made you feel like I was treating you like an idiot.  Jim and I are admins for the forum and even we cant reach him. The issue about Mark not responding has been posted several times in the forum.

As far as upgrading to gold.  Once Mark is around again I would definitely recommend it.  I use RRW gold membership materials in my business on an almost daily basis.  Whether its using plr content in some way, setting up mrr, rr or gr materials to further a business goal or personal use training material that I learn from the gold membership has made me thousands of dollars over the years.  Hell my own products are in the membership!  The difference between the free membership and the gold membership are night and day.  Besides getting better quality content, there's also the free hosting as well.

I know all these, but my questions were more specific. Like for example...

1) I got kicked out of Adsense, and soon will probably be kicked out of Amazon, as well. Clickbank steals commissions from its affiliates, and ebay is too complicated to use. On top of all these, I am NOT American, therefore the affiliate networks I have available to make money with are very limited, where you also add the fact that local marketing is dumb because my country (Romania) doesn't spend much money online, not at the extent of what Americans are spending anyway.

So, like I said, with so many limited options I am wondering how I am going to monetize the PMC websites I'll get as a GOLD member. That was one of the questions for Mark (or whoever was responsible with the support tickets)

2) the second issue (which is what has been keeping me for years from making money online) is the god darn traffic. I never get enough traffic, and the traffic I get never converts. So again, will the GOLD upgrade deliver traffic (therefore sales) to my PMC websites out of the blue sky, or do I have to work for that, as well?

3) since I'm NOT social media type of guy (I hate social media with all of my power) the only valid options to drive traffic to my websites are SEO and/or PPC. Now, the issue with PPC is that it's darn expensive, and the issue with SEO is that it's darn expensive, and changing all the time. I'm tired of keeping up with Google's retarded algo changes, I'm tired of staying glued to the screen to watch the latest and greatest algo changes just to see my websites rank NOWHERE after having wasted months building them with great content, but getting no backlinks to them because Google says so, and if Google says so we must all lick Google's ass cause they're Google and we must dance however they sing.

So, point #3 that I'm trying to make is that social media is out of the question (because I don't like it), while SEO, and PPC are out of the questions (because I can't afford them). So, in this circumstance how do I get traffic to my PMC websites, and how do I make sales with them, also considering the lack of affiliate networks I have available to me?

4) will the PMC websites rank on their own (as they're delivered), or must we also spend money on content re-writing, as well? Probably we will need to rewrite all content, which means even more money and/or time wasted with re-writing, and I wouldn't mind taking the time to re-write the content manually, had I known for a fact that....

5) I then wouldn't need backlinks in order to rank the websites. But there's also this problem of backlinking. I have built 3-4 websites over the last 2 years, and while using top-notch software to do keyword research (LongTailPro Platinum for example) I have still failed to do keyword research because the software said that my keywords were easy to rank for, but few months later when updates came in my keywords were all of a sudden extremely hard to rank for. LOL, just f..cking LOL. There went my time, and money wasted with creating high quality websites that will rank nowhere because of stupid software.

Anyway... the reason I'm mentioning all these (and what I was actually asking in the support ticket) is if the RRW upgrade will help me solve these issues by:

a) granting me access to monetization options that are available to me (so, NO Adsense, NO Amazon, NO Clickbank, and NO Ebay)
b) deliver traffic AND sales to my PMC websites without me having to spend money on SEO and/or content re-writing (which probably are still paramount for the success of an online business)
c) provide a step-by-step plan on how to get to... $300 per month in 3 months (just an example) just using the GOLD upgrade tools, and not having to spend money on SEO, traffic, content rewriting, or whatever.

As you can see, I'm not even demanding. I think $300 per month in 3 months (hell, even $150 per month would be good at this point) should not be that hard to achieve had I had a good, solid plan of action (which I currently don't have, because I don't know what works anymore, and what seems to work is freakin' expensive). I have earned over $200 per month back in 2009-2010 when Google was not such a slut (sleeping with all big companies) and when little guys like me could rank websites just by submitting articles to article directories, and placing some Adsense code on their websites. But, things have changed, and sadly for me, not for the good.

So anyway, since you are an upgraded member you already know if the GOLD membership can help me with points a), b), and c). And if that's the case feel free to answer my questions. Otherwise I will probably wait for Mark to answer (or whoever is qualified)

So yeah, that's how specific my questions were about the GOLD upgrade. I'm currently contacting all of the niche marketing providers I have used in the past (you, Wealthy Affiliate, and sitebildz), and gather all responses, and depending on what each one of you says, and what the costs involved in getting me to $300 per month in the fastest time possible are, I will either upgrade here, or at other places. I just hope I'll get an honest, and accurate answer, other than the typical "go get a job so that you have money to give us" (yeah, I've done that, too, and the results were the same: poor, that is. So, getting a job to have money to poor into the bottomless sack of SEO is not the answer to how to make money online...)

Here's my take on your questions and it's based on my own experiences as an internet marketer and coach:

First thing you need to work on is your mindset.  You have narrowed yourself into how you can and cant make money online.   Ebay isnt complicated at all.  There is training on how to make money with ebay in the membership. 

Why did you get kicked out of adsense?  Why do you expect to be kicked off of amazon?   

There are more ways to make money online besides the PMC sites.  As a matter of fact there are ways to make more money than the PMC sites and yes there is training on those in the membership. 

Clickbank isnt the only affiliate platform around there are tons of them JVZoo, Warriorplus, Warrior Forum, Zaxaa just to name a few.  You can make money on these as an affiliate marketer as well as a product creator (yep tons of training on that in the membership as well). 

SEO and PPC arent the only ways to drive traffic to a websites.  There are plenty of free and paid methods of traffic generation and yes there is training on that in the membership.

Anyway... the reason I'm mentioning all these (and what I was actually asking in the support ticket) is if the RRW upgrade will help me solve these issues by:

a) granting me access to monetization options that are available to me (so, NO Adsense, NO Amazon, NO Clickbank, and NO Ebay)

Amazon is still available to you until they kick you off for whatever reason you seem to think they will.  Clickbank and Ebay are both generating income for thousands of people a day, no reason why you cant be one of them.  Yes there are other ways to make money online and there is plenty of training on those in the membership.

b) deliver traffic AND sales to my PMC websites without me having to spend money on SEO and/or content re-writing (which probably are still paramount for the success of an online business)

There is training in the membership on how to drive targetted traffic to any website, whether someone buys something from the website is based on the content of the website and the salescopy for anything that is being sold.   There is training on copywriting in the membership as well.

c) provide a step-by-step plan on how to get to... $300 per month in 3 months (just an example) just using the GOLD upgrade tools, and not having to spend money on SEO, traffic, content rewriting, or whatever.

There are plenty of plans on how to make money online available in the membership.  There are no guarantees on how much you will make because how much you make online is solely dependent on your own actions.   Anyone who tells you they can guarantee how much money you will make is lying to you.  There are simply too many variables to make a guarantee on a specific amount of money anyone will make.

The last thing I am going to say is this.  The Gold membership isnt a magic button.  Becoming a gold member is where the real work begins.  You will be learning alot but it isnt until you start consistently implementing what you learn that you will start building your lists and making money.  But it all starts with your mindset.  Change that first and then everything else will start to fall in place.

It's not about changing any mindset, as there is about finding something that works, which is what my problem is these days. As I said previously, everything that seems to work nowadays require a lot of money (niche research requires good software, which costs money; quality content costs money, and quite a lot of it considering the gazillion of words that Google wants to see on your page to get you ranked; traffic generation costs money, either in the form of advertising on social media, getting backlinks to your website, or simply promoting your website wherever. Everything just freakin costs money, and I'm not talking about $10-20 that I'd gladly pay. No, you need upwards of $100s to get a simple website ranked in Google and keep there)

You might be right that I have narrowed myself into how I can make money online, but I've narrowed myself based on my current situation (lack of money to invest in my online biz, as well as lack of affiliate networks that I can make money with). Speaking of affiliate networks...

I got kicked out of Adsense because I purchased clicks, and I'm waiting to get kicked out of Amazon because I have a WP Robot 4 autoblog that I have created over an year ago and which I haven't touched at all. That autoblog gets me random sales now and then, and the reason I think I will get into troubles for this is because I recently read somewhere that Amazon doesn't like copying/pasting their content on your website without providing value to your customer. Some bullshit along these lines, similar to what Google does (the bigger a company gets, the easier will f..k you without hesitation or remorse). That's what I'm thinking that it's probably a matter of time before Amazon closes my account, but I don't even care. That autoblog is the only website that makes me money, even if it's $1-2 per month, and I won't waste years of my life manually going through the 100s of products that the plugin is auto-posting to turn them into Pulitzer-winning content just cause Amazon doesn't like it. As I said in my previous message, I've wasted enough of my life (more than 6 years) trying to dance how Google and other shameless companies sing, without seeing anything in return because I didn't have deep enough pockets to keep the gods happy. Not going to do this anymore...

As for JvZoo and Warrior+ ... have you tried being accepted into promoting their products as a newbie? Probably you haven't, cause if you had you'd know that those guys don't like new marketers. They only want f..king sales machines to promote their products. I have applied to dozens of marketers, both in JvZoo, and W+ last year, trying to get affiliate links to promote their products. And how many accepts did I get? Yep, a whopping ZERO accepts. The reason? I haven't made any sales previously to convince them that I'm good at it. Bulls..t always attracts more bulls..t so, yeah....

As for WarriorForum... isn't that Warrior+?? And Zaxaa.... I should probably check this out, as I've heard about it before, but never looked into it. Also on affiliate networks, I just got approved by Share-a-sale 2 days ago, which is the only good f..king news I've received lately. So, in case all other networks fail I will probably resort to this one.

You said "SEO and PPC arent the only ways to drive traffic to a websites".... Well, you are only half right. They're not the only ways to drive traffic, but they're the only solid ways, cause I'm not going to waste years of my life on forums, hunting random sales. That's so dumb! I have tried the forums, too in the past, but unless you're wasting your life each day on the forum and become a VIP there, you won't make consistent money with this method. And you also know my take on social media. The only thing about generating traffic on social media that appeals to me is Facebook ads, but even those need money, which is one of my issues right now.

Last but not least, I know there's tons of training inside of this website, and probably even more training comes with the GOLD membership. I know this, I really do, but I don't need training, as much as I need a step-by-step plan on how to make money online without breaking the bank.

There's training everywhere, but all of the so called training leaves you figuring the important stuff all by yourself, or hiding the real costs (both in time, and money) from you. I have followed so much training over the 6-7 years I've been trying to make money online (I even paid handsomely for this training when I had money to waste left and right) that one would only assume that I should be retired by now. Yet, I'm still broke as always, so training is not the issue, and as hard it is for you to believe my mindset is not the issue, either. Truly the problem is the lack of money, and the lack of a solid plan of action. Which brings me to the conclusion that making money online is probably not for me, and I should quit it altogether.

Or, maybe you are right, and I should stay away from SEO and ranking websites for a while, and look into other stuff. I wish I knew what freakin works, though...

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to reply to all this writing. I guess that I need to figure out on my own where I'm heading towards with online biz...

I beg to differ with you, it is about mindset more than anything.  Your very words prove it.  You dont need a lot of money to drive targeted traffic to a site but you do need to know how to drive targeted traffic to a site.  You can also do it for free, but investing in the proper paid methods tend to get you results faster.

Actually as a newbie these are places I did become an affiliate at in the beginning.  As a product creator, I accept newbies to promote my products all the time and I know quite a few  other product creators who do as well.  They simply put them on delayed commission until they prove themselves.

As for WarriorForum... isn't that Warrior+??

Actually they are 2 different platforms..www.warriorforum.com & www.warriorplus.com The Warriorforum is one of the oldest IM forums out there.  Warriorplus is an affiliate platform both used to be owned by Mike (I cant think of his last name at the moment) but he sold Warriorforum to the same people that own www.Freelancer.com.  Mike still owns and runs Warriorplus.

I'm not sure what training you have been through on traffic generation but SEO and PPC are not the only solid ways to drive traffic to any site.  Forum marketing is one way to drive targeted traffic to your site but it's not a primary method nor is it an immediate method.  It takes a while for members of a forum to consider you a subject matter expert.

Quite a few people have problems with traffic generation because they either 1 dont follow whatever training they have started exactly as it was given to them.  2 they didnt follow the directions consistently. 3 Jump from traffic generation method to another and another before they seeing results.  All of these problems tend to result in little to no traffic and/or sales.

You misunderstand me when I refer to training in the membership.   There are step by step training guides in the membership that will teach you what you need to know.  You just have to pick one and follow it completely and consistently.

Also nothing is free...even if you are using free methods you will still have to invest in time to implement them or pay someone to do the work for you. 

It all goes back to your mindset and how you see things.  Case in point, you assumed you knew what I did or didnt do as a newbie and you were incorrect.   If you were wrong about that, couldnt you be wrong about other things?

Everything that you said cant be done is being done by people everyday.   I'll bet even by some people in your own country.   

It has nothing to do with a lack of a large sum of money.  You can make money online for about $100 or less (the majority of that will be paying for a domain, hosting, autoresponder (there are $1 trials for the major autoresponder services) and some plr (preferable a membership site there is a $1 week trial for the gold membership I believe) and having some cash for paid traffic along with a reserve to pay for the next month's fees).  If you are following a decent plan you should be making enough money to cover your fees and then some in less than a month's time.

You have listed reasons why you cant do things, try asking yourself how you can do things.  That will open up new avenues for you.  Personally I would rather create products and drive traffic to my salespages, that's how you get the biggest bang for your money.   I've made money with affiliate marketing, selling my own products, coaching, selling on amazon and a few other places online and flipping websites, so I know a few ways to make money online but you have to have the right mindset to begin with otherwise you'll shoot yourself in the foot.

Nothing is Impossible, with an Open Mind

Been having autoresponder and hosting and domain names for years, so I don't need to invest in any of these anymore.

I did get random subscribers every now and then to whatever list I had created, but out of the thousands of subscribers that subscribed to my lists over the years not even one has ever joined any program (free, or not, didn't matter), not even one of them has ever purchased anything from me, despite of my creating those lists by the rules. No comment.

JvZoo and Warrior+ ..... last year I went to W+ and applied for promoting the most popular products of the last 7 weeks, and 30 days respectively. I applied for each product separately, I received a whopping ZERO accepts. Actually, even now I have applications pending in my W+ account, so I'm not sure what you're talking about being put on delayed commissions and whatever, but I'm telling you that you're wrong. Then, I went to JVZoo and tried doing the same, and with JvZoo I did have slightly better results, in the way that I did get accepted by a few vendors to promote their products, but the products were so bad (poor grammar, poor salespages, etc.) that you could see the vendors were newbies and trying desperately to get whoever to promote their products. To prove this even further, I placed their codes on one of my websites and 2 weeks later the banner stopped displaying, and when I looked into the matter the vendors have taken the products down, even though the products had been up for less than a month. So again, I'm not sure what your experience with these 2 networks is but I'm telling you from first-hand experience that they don't like newbies. Ok, you and a few others might be more willing to help newbies, but then again, you can't compete with all the big names of these networks that crank product after product each month and which get thousands of sales in days. If you could, you would probably be on the list of the most popular vendors/products, in which case I would have applied to promote your products, in which case you would have probably approved me since you're so willing to work with newbies. But this never happened.

About traffic generation... when you drive (supposedly) targeted traffic to your websites by following a (supposedly) failproof plan that promises instant traffic that converts, well I'd better make sales right out of the bat. I don't need to waste months on generating traffic without seeing a bloody sale just because I need to be consistent with a plan. I need (and I will) be consistent IF the plan proves it's working, otherwise I'm sure you agree it's bad business to continue following a plan that promises something but delivers something different, or nothing at all. My point is that you are not right in advising to follow a plan. If the plan is crap you just need to quit following it (duh!)

About the rr/plr/mr business... does anybody in their right mind still buy PLR products? I mean, I did buy such products myself, but that was years ago when I actually ranked websites in Google and made money with Adsense without re-writing a single word. Yeah, PLR products worked well in 2009-2010, but since then (and with all the Pulitzer-pulling, academic type of quality content that Google demands) these products have lost their value. So, who in their right mind pays $10 for PLR products that they have to spend more money/time on rewriting, when they can just buy $4-5 articles that are 100% unique? I just don't get it, and I need to ask this because I will be getting 100s of such products each month with the RRW upgrade, so either these products are total crap (should PLR products not work anymore like I think), or they're a real goldmine and I'm missing something here on how to make money with them. Can you please explain where you are selling these products? Who is stupid enough to buy them just to spend more money on rewriting all of the content since duplicate content is bad nowadays?
