What is it?
Traffic secrets is designed to give you, the reader, tips on how to get traffic to your websites/funnels using proven techniques. Essentially getting your product in front of the right kind of eyes.
The idea is to create a formula so that you can leverage your time and money to get most the traffic over to where you need/want it.
It’s like a field manual. It shows you the important blueprints so that you can apply it to your business needs.
Who wrote it?
Russell has built a following of over a million entrepreneurs, sold hundreds of thousands of copies of his books and popularized the concept of sales funnels. He co-founded a software company called ClickFunnels that helps tens of thousands of entrepreneurs quickly get their message out to the marketplace.
What’s good about it?
Have you ever come across a book where after reading it you were that happy with it that you would have quite happily paid more for it?
Well this is that book for me. I couldn’t put it down.
I’ll be honest I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to buy it at first. I thought it would just be filled with subtle sales pitches back to his company, clickfunnels, throughout. I expected the book to make out that the only way to be successful in business was to purchase his online software.
Well, I am happy to admit that I was so very wrong!
The information in this was golden.
It starts with the foundations of building up an email list etc. But it uses those basics throughout the book. This is to show you how to take things to the next level.
It builds upon itself section by section so you have a full understanding over all chapters.
There are some specific examples on how to do this on particular platforms like FB or YouTube etc. But it was more to show that this can be applied to any platform not just the ones mentioned.
What I’m trying to say is it doesn’t matter what platform you’re using. The information is evergreen. It can be applied to any platform that come and goes so its information is timeless.
I feel there is so much information in there that I will need to go back to read it again. That is so I can:
– See what golden nuggets I missed the first time around.
– Take Notes
– Make some “cheat sheets” for myself when applying the Traffic Secrets techniques.
What’s bad about it?
If I’m honest, not a lot.
Russel mentions ways to grow your business and one of the sections is about using affiliate marketers. I’m already an affiliate marketer so I knew how this worked.
So for me, this was irrelevant and was the only part of the book I skipped over.
There are resources available online that you can use. These can be anything from useful links to spreadsheets that you can download and populate. These can be used in conjunction with the methods described in the book. This means that you can create your own customized plan to help you succeed in your business.
The link for these resources can be found in the Traffic Secrets book.
Currently there’s a promotion where the book is FREE you just have to cover P&P. You can get that deal here.
That’s only good if you’re in the USA though. It’s still free and you still have to cover P&P elsewhere. But if you’re like me and live in the UK it might be quicker and cost the same to get it from Amazon.
Have I actually Read it?
As I stated before I was pleasantly surprised with this book. You get a lot of “bang for your buck” (a lot more if you live in the USA). The fact that this book can be referred back to over and over is what makes it priceless.
The way the sentences are structure make it easy to understand along with a few simple doodles to help with visualising processes. You don’t need to know the business lingo.
It doesn’t take long until you realize that this is something different and something that if used as inteded will truly have a positive impact on your business.
There are affiliate links in this website, meaning, at no additional cost to you,
