The value of marketing tools
There is both doubt and debate as to the validity, efficiency and effectiveness of the marketing tools coming out on the market right now. You would hope that they would all attempt to devliver and perform as expected, but its obvious many of them simply do not. They are neither justified in expense nor performance for their users, quite frankly there is a lot of garbage being peddled out there at the moment. Daniel Tan offered his opinion on the issue.
“Any Facebook tool or system does not solve problems marketers face. The problem is not the tool, but rather how you use it! I can give you the best tools in the world, if you do not use them correctly, you will not be successful. We simply make it easier to create a presence on Facebook and implement Facebook functionality into Facebook Pages.”
The way the developers of FB X-Tab see it:
Daniel Tan even coined a new phrase with reference for the new group of developers who are taking on the challenge of developing products to help marketers with their challenges on Facebook. He calls them NFOs, or News Feed Optimizers. NFOs are the latest group to emerge in the social media marketing scene, and they are breaking new ground on the Facebook marketing scene. These “NFOs: need a reliable solutions provider to help them on this journey and they have been provided that solution, with the FB X-Tab product. Not only does the product provide unparalleled utility, but they have trained a responsive and active support team to assist their users with their daily challenges.
How will FB X-Tab stay current?
“FB X-Tab will be around for a long time and will be continually updated with so much material for years to come. As Facebook changes, we will ensure our members have the tools to be current and not have to worry with developers and/or the changes Facebook makes. We change with Facebook!”
“I also have information that I will give our members about Facebook such as Facebook SEO or “Edgerank” and mistakes that Facebook Marketers make and how to avoid them…I will also be teaching how to inspire interaction and manage Facebook Pages.”
”FB X-Tab is best distinguished by the ability for users to add our applications to an unlimited number of pages with an unlimited number of fans! Most other application providers limit by number of Facebook pages or number of fans.”
At EliKen Marketing, we are thanking Daniel for his efforts! Make sure you get a look at FB X-Tab, and make the most of your Facebook Marketing Efforts!!
An Objective Review of iSocial Academy
I got a sneak Peak

Is Social Marketing Necessary in My Market?

If you want the google love, you have to play on the social media platforms, period. Don’t look for the love, unless you play by the rules.

How can I find the time to do this work?
If your primary focus of business is not Internet Marketing, you would do well to outsource the work required to maintain a social marketing presence to a well qualified Social Media marketing company.
I typically like to expose the faults in any program that I review, along with the positive characteristics that I find there. I am sorry to report, that in this instance, there is not one item, that I can point to that is either poorly produced, dated, or in any way faulty.

Adam Horwitz may have been a household name in the IM niche for years, but he is a relatively new phenomena in my experience. I decided to model a Local Internet Marketing business model that I found on the warrior forum, and Local Mobile marketing was a concept I knew that I needed in Service categories I covered.
The Instant response Factor
The beauty of mobile text marketing lies in the 95%+ open rate that marketers experience with SMS messaging. When people get a text message, they almost always read them.
So how does that Help my business?
The advantage of mobile text messaging for a business is of course partially dependent on the business, but to make the story short, if you have a need to drive business for a certain commodity, and you make an offer to your list, they will likely see the message, and if the offer is enticing enough, they will take you up on it. Immediately.

Restaurants can run specials or discounts, bars can give drink coupons, the gym can offer a massage discount, or a discount for the day, Hair salons can offer color discounts and the dentist can remind you of your appointment. Anyone who uses social media in their market, or should be using social media is in your market as a marketer.
You can run the program as an Affiliate or an Agent
Local Mobile marketing is amenable to either an agency or affiliate business plan, and for the astute marketer, both models easily compliment one another in a marketing campaign.
The beauty, and the beast…
What I like about the product is the business concept and strategy for addressing the local mobile text messaging market. What I dislike about the product is the fact that I didn’t think of it and launch it. It is expressly designed to provide a low cost obstacle method of job creation with the risk on the affiliate, and huge rewards certainly in store for the owners of YepText. Great idea guys, Kudos.
If you are a local retailer who wants to increase your business, you need a text messaging strategy, period. If you don’t have the inhouse capability, a Mobile Helper, as Adam has dubbed his legion of affiliates, is a perfect solution, for less than the cost of an inhouse employee for a week, you can have the monthly services of someone who is capable of running your campaigns effectively for you. Either Hire a freelance expert, who should be looking for you, or get Local Mobile Monopoly.

As the dream of the existence of a road to instant riches continues to be exploited by the “guru” wallet snatchers on the Clickbank feces filled IM niche, two relative newcomers to the IM scene have developed a case study project with actual value to the uninitiated and struggling alike, with an honest insider look at how to actually develop and grow a successful online business.
Repetition and Garbage
With few exceptions, the digital products that have been introduced lately for sale on Clickbank have served no purpose other than to lighten the wallets of unsuspecting potential IM entrepreneurs providing little, and in most cases zero value to the hopeful newbies.
Hope on the Horizon
As a fairly new marketer in the online world, I have followed the advice of the “guru” crowd for the last 2 years, fortunately, I found a couple who have provided me with reasonable advice. I am pleased to say that amongst the gaggle of insanely worthless products that have come down the path this year (exception Matt Bacak and Alan Sultanic, MMM) there has emerged one shining light in the darkness, from a relatively obscure pair of marketers from down under known simply as Gavin and Jake. The pair have released in WSO form a case study in the form of Video and PDF transcription a method to cost effectively develop your online presence, through the introduction of simple products that you develop and market in a WSO form, or on a relatively new network, called DigiResults.
Gavin and Jake offer no magic results formula, just a simple process by which you can build your niche lists using the talents of like minded entreprenuers in a JV capacity, not attempting to infiltrate the ranks of the well known clickbank “super affiliates” but instead enlisting the assistance of like minded partners, whose only true interest is in building their business through the provision of actual value, leaving the scammers to continue to peddle their “pushbutton” madness to the unsuspecting horde.
Three modules and an interview with Andy Fletcher, the founder of DigiResults comprise the content of Traffic Intelligence, and the interview with Fletcher alone is worth the price of admission. In addition to the step by step case study, Gavin and Jake provide a quick and concise guide to copywriting and effective email copy, as well as a technical blueprint consisting of the tech requirements for building a profitable online business.
To be fair, there is some detail that you may find lacking, but the guys are not trying to show you the power button on your computer. If you are in the position of growing your online presence, and need to get some solid ideas about how to create your lists, then Traffic Intelligence is a great product for you. The product is currently priced at a level anyone can afford, even in these dire times, so make the effort to go and learn from an honest source, take a look at the product, and go get Traffic Intelligence.
