FunnelKit Go Review | Honest Review

This is an honest and quick review of FunnelKit Go and it will be very quick.

I was introduced to FunnelKit Go in one of my marketing groups this evening..I was actually comparing with Page Monkey.

Since I like to snoop and look at HTML code, I decided to see what was under the on FunnelKit Go’s landing page. To my astonishment I discovered they are using OptimizePress!

It is possible to use their plugin with OptimizePress, but why would they not build out a complete landing page with their own software / plugin? So the next question one would have to ask is; How much of the actual landing page was built with OptimizePress vs Funnelkit Go?

While the price is right on this plugin, I’ll have to pass on the sheer fact that they did not use their own software to completely build out a landing page for their own product and they failed to show a demonstration with a video background or a video in a landing page. I’m also an OptimizePress user and can pretty much do everything that FunnelKit Go can do. While some say OptimizePress can be confusing or cumbersome, it is a time tested and well supported product.

For this product, I’ll save my money and continue to use OptimizePress.

Define Unlimited Leads

I love all the likes and comments I’ve received from folks proclaiming to be #leadgurus – Looking at their profiles they make claims of #unlimitedleads – Over the past 8+ years I have generated nearly 1 million #leads for the #automotive sector and managed a $2.5 million annual #googleadwords budget…it’s much like fishing. You never know exactly how many leads you will generate on a given day and when you generate #qu

alityleads you can never fill the demand. So please define “unlimited leads” for a seasoned #leadgenerator – Is it 1,000 leads per day? Done that. Is it 10,000 leads per day? If you truly have unlimited leads what is your typical ROI? What is your average #conversionrate ? Those two factors are as equally important as the number of leads you can generate. Unlimited leads with a conversion rate of zero sucks, but 10 leads per day with a closing ratio of 30-50% is something you can build a #business from. So please…define unlimited leads and put some context around it or you are just a pedaler of snake oil.

Website Traffic and Sales Terminated?

Last night I did something I have not done in quite some time…I was looking for potential #website gigs on #craigslist – I did find a few that looked interesting, something jumped out at me that #businesses and people have not figured out…While literally anyone can build a #website – There are services like Wix that have made it drag and drop simple. But there are two critical elements being severely overlooked; #websitetraffic and #conversions – A website without traffic or visitors is like a billboard in the desert, and a website that cannot convert that traffic to your end objective is useless. Think about it..would you trust a builder that said they could build you a house for $2000 or forgot to factor in doors, windows, or plumbing? Building a website without giving thought to getting visitors or converting that traffic is poor planning and a waste of time and resources. There are many amazing website designers that can create some works of art, but haven’t a clue about getting or converting traffic. Same reason you go see a specialist vs your general practitioner for a problem with your heart. If your website strategy or current webmaster has no planning for getting and converting your visitors…It’s time to TERMINATE them. If you want more traffic and converted sales or leads through your website and online efforts, let’s talk about your goals for 2016. I’ll Be Back with more information like this in 2016.   

Honest Rent A SERP Review – Real Review of RentASERP

When I first saw the video sales pitch I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the video and the claims of renting out domains without having to talk with people using the Rent A SERP theme and Rent A SERP plugin. I quickly set up a test domain and noticed that the theme collects some contact details if a visitor decides to try renting the domain for 5 minutes.

My first thought after seeing the theme is what are these guys doing to get a single page website to rank and stay ranked to rent out the SERP / domain.

(No mention of “The System” or how it can optimize “The Entire Site” and Rank It)

I¬†went to the webinar replay that Devin Zander and Mario Cimmino held… I was hoping to get some more insight into what system they were using to get their one page theme to rank and stay ranked for renting out a domain.

DISAPPOINTMENT – As I started to watch the webinar video replay, my excitement for this product went to buzz kill. They don’t show any methodology for utilizing the Rent A SERP theme and plugin as intended in the sales video…the theme and plugin are designed to collect prospects for SEO clients…not actually renting a specific domain. I find this quite bizarre as the concept of the plugin for renting out a domain is genius, but it seems these guys are more interested in generating ongoing SEO work vs. actually renting out domains using the plugin. There’s also an OTO / up-sell for a mastermind group that costs $497.

I’ve submitted a support ticket asking for more information on specifics regarding just Rent A SERP and will update this post later.

In closing, I think the Rent A SERP plugin has some value to use with a multi-page website that have a chance of staying ranked on page one for local keywords, but looking for some proof that the one page theme can have any staying power. I’m going to keep the theme and plugin. Unfortunately, the plugin cannot be purchased seperately.

adMarketplace Review 2012

adMarketplace Review:

This adMarketplace review is based on test that lasted just over 30 days beginning around June 18th, 2012 when I was first contacted by an adMarketplace representative. I informed my new rep that I’ve been contacted by many “alternative traffic source” companies and what my CPA target was. He assured me that it was possible to reach our desired CPA.

I was instructed to run a 30 day minimum test in which the first 15 days would be for data collection purposes and the last 15 days would be for making tweaks to reach target CPA. During the first 15 days of testing, our internal reporting showed that 83% of traffic coming from the adMarketPlace network bounced with duplicate clicks from the same IP addresses being evident in our reporting.

Auto Dealers Turning Customers Away?

auto dealer internet leadsIf you are a sales manager at a dealership or a GM and you discovered that your salespeople we turning people away how would you react?

Let’s say a potential customer walked into your dealership and asked a salesperson about a 2010 victory red Camaro, but you sold it the day before or just hour before the prospect walked through the door…and the salesperson replies; Sorry, we just sold that vehicle, but thanks for stopping by.

The typical “sales” approach most dealerships would take would be to ask the prospect a few of the following questions:

  • We have a 2010 green Camaro or a 2011 victory red Camaro in stock now. Would you like to take a look at those vehicles?
  • Ask, are there any other vehicles we might be able to show you today?
  • If I can find you a 2010 victory red Camaro how soon would you be looking to purchase?

Most sales managers or GM’s would show a salesperson where the door is if they did not make some attempt to engage a visitor to their brick and mortar dealership…so why are some auto dealers turning online prospects away looking for used vehicles?

While working on a used car project recently, we discovered that many if not all used car dealers won’t accept a vehicle inquiry if they mark the vehicle for removal from their database. The visitor inquired about a specific vehicle, but the dealer won’t accept the prospect’s online inquiry because they already sold the vehicle possibly. What if the dealer had the same vehicle in the same color, or only a year or two off from the vehicle in question? The dealer will never know because they never let the prospect through the front door.

Most auto dealers would never do this to a customer walking through their front door, so why are auto dealers turning online customers away looking for used vehicles?

If a used car dealer crunched the numbers they would still have a respectable ROI for used vehicle inquiries while adding some names to their marketing list.

I’d be interested in hearing from used car dealers, General Managers, or even some owners to get your perspective on why you don’t want a used vehicle lead if it is marked for deletion from your database.

We’ve been working with auto dealers for five years helping them generate quality leads with a great ROI. Got questions about generating online leads for your store? Drop us a line and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
