    Hi Barbie here,

    I need your help please. I advertise my biz at least 2 to 4 hours a day.
    I usually get very poor results.

    Fergal advised me to.. Perhaps you need to change something, sometimes a small change can make a very big difference. Please feel free to start a new thread with some questions to get feedback on your advertising or your business offer and we will do our best to help you.

    So here I am, I need all the help I can get. I pretty much just try to get people to my
    squeeze pages and sign up. Would you be so kind to take a look at some of them and give me some advice how I can tweak and peak them to make them better?

    Here's a few of them:

    Thanks so much

    The one thing I would recommend is that you include a message beside all your email submission boxes, to say that you won't spam the email addresses and that you won't give or sell them on to anyone else (provided it's through, of course). Most people don't like giving out their email addresses, for fear that they will be spammed. Including a statement that you don't spam and a link to a privacy statement can do a lot to reassure them.

    You say that your promotion has not been generating the results you need. Have you been tracking your results or doing any split testing to see which promotions are working and which aren't? What type of promotion have you been doing to date?

    Split testing is when you run the same ads, but link them to different pages and see which page is converting best. Another version is when you run two ads, pointing to the same squeeze page and then analyse which ad is converting best.

    I'm agree with Fergal. Another way to what Fergal says about the message proving that your not spam, you can actually set up your email or activate the auto-responder. You can put your message there stated everything. On that way you can prove that your not a spam at the same time it wont take much of your time to do those email because it is automatically send to your contact list or any incoming emails.

    First I would like to thank both for the info.

    I agree about the message about not spamming or sharing email. It's a very good point.
    I'll fix that. But how do you link to a privacy statement?

    I really haven't tried split testing yet. I however did have about 15 squeeze pages the
    ones that were not getting any sign ups I took out. I'm definitely gonna start Split
    testing.

    The type of promotions I do are...Traffic exchanges,safelists,ezine article,press releases,forums,
    I use to do classifieds but I personally think there a waist of time, Post on message boards, I have 4 blogs,
    and also advertise on other owner sites. these are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I'm
    constantly trying new ads tweaking and peaking all the time.

    Kleidmoore, I'm not really sure what you mean. I do have a response that people get from me when they send me a email. Is that what you mean?

    Oh and one more question...when I run two ads, pointing to the same squeeze page and then analyse which ad is converting best. How do I track to know which ad is converting best?

    thanks Barbie

    Barbie, basically you would write a privacy policy for your site, publish it on a separate page of your site and link to that page from every other page on your site. You can view our privacy policy, to see the type of information that should be included - Privacy Policy - Business Advice Forum.

    Re tracking which ad is converting best, what ad network, if any, are you using to promote your site? Some ad networks provide you with reporting tools that would give you that information, for example Google Adwords conversion tracking tool.

    If your not using an ad network with a conversion tracking application you could run different ads at different times (e.g. Ad 1 in Wk 1 and Ad 2 in Wk 2) and compare the conversion rates that way.

    Hopefully that helps?

    Thank you so much..you been very helpful.

    I finally set all my squeeze pages up so I can track them.
    I should have done this a long time ago. I have some ads
    that are getting a good response and some that are not.
    Now I can stop sending the ones that aren't getting opened much
    and concentrate more on the ones that are. Thanks for reminding
    me, I forgot about this step. Sometimes a person just gets frustrated
    and forgets the principles. Thanks for the great info I got my
    work cute out for me..but at least I know how I can improve it.
    Thanks to you .

    Barbie
