Default An idea for CPV Coach

I am thinking of giving all ppc coach members free access to this site.

For existing members that means a big discount and more bang for your buck on ppc coach.

For anyone that bought a lifetime subscription, I will give something to make up for it.

Thoughts?

Good/bad/stupid idea?

Let me know.

My initial thought...NO!

This traffic source already saturated. I'm willing to gander that the reason the activity has been so sparse is because no one wants to give away their "secrets".

When it boils down it, there's really one thing that makes this work...economics. The lower the bid, the higher the margins. If you invite the entire ppc-coach membership, this takes away from our margins. There are only so many impressions to go around on any specific keyword. The marketing space is small, IMO.

What are your reasons for considering this move?

After gaining some clarity...I realize that the answer to your question is rather complex. I say No to letting ppc-coach members have this for free, but Maybe to the MBC members.

I posted a question last year about the future of CPVCoach now that MBC exists. CPV and media buying are more related to one another than PPC and CPV. The mentality and models make more sense when applying to media buying as a whole.

I agree this membership needs some life. And if more members is what you want, then I would suggest letting MBC members have it at no additional cost. Present it like a Sub Form, as you do with the Ad Networks theme you've got going in MBC.

With the risks of CPV, it's better in the hands of serious players.

(And yes I would like some compensation for having paid a lifetime membership here.)

I was thinking about it because there's so much cpv information out there now it's ridiculous. Even a member of this site has started his own membership site and is charging $39.99 for it. I even approached him about a partnership, but he didn't really seem into it. I guess after you learn it, you either do the campaigns or start your own site.



The facts are the info is out there, has been for a long time and we either adapt or die. That's what happens with these things. I would much rather have a flourishing community where everyone is helping everyone then a dead site.

I don't want a dead site, either, which is why I'm willing to compromise. But, I want to compromise wisely. Yes, the info is out there...but look at where THERE is. This community can increase membership AND have quality members at the same time by inviting the folks that are more ready for this. I wouldn't recommend this to a newbie. Give it to the people that can use the information in here to help them move on to media buys (not to the ones that are gonna to think CPV is the end all).

Mmm...maybe I am mistaken, but what info are so wide ? Yea, ppvplaybook for $49 or so and membership for $39.99, ppvriches ebook for $47, and massppvtraffic for $77, this site and also gauher chaudry ppv formula. That's all. That is not so much at all. Comparing with info about free seo trafic or ppc traffic.

P.S. I didn't vote.

Coach,

If you do decide to open this to ppc-coach members, then let them have access after month 5 or one of the later months. That way I don't have to sift through all of the garbage, like "I spent $5 and didn't make anything, I quit" garbage. haha...

Also, this will create an incentive for your members to stay with you longer.

I'm also concerned about increased competition on limited traffic sources and the limited number of offers available on the cpa networks.

Ryan

p.s. Maybe have this site available after month 12 at ppc-coach, where there isn't any new content.

I agree.

There are things I've posted in here, that if I knew there were 500 more people looking over my shoulder, I probably would not have posted those things.

I certainly like to help others and I have solid proof that what comes around... goes around.

Feeling like a tight-knit group, many have helped me here. I've done all I can to return those favors, and I hope I've done that and more for them.

-Aaron
