Kim Roach- Traffic Mentor
If you want to be educated or need any help with your internet marketing Kim is a great teacher. She isn’t pie in the sky, spammy or hypey. Just solid content and a very healthy attitude and sense of humour. It is in your best interest to join her tribe so you too can benefit from her experience which she generously shares from her Elizabethtown, Kentucky base. Her marketing lab trainings were solid and the Traffic Mentor will allow you to learn from someone who is not just talking but doing.
This is not an affiliate pitch, just some advice from one marketer to others. There are a lot of good people out there you can learn from and Kim should be on your list. Sign up for her list and you will be pleasantly surprised at the actionable content she shares.
Kim Roach My Traffic Mentor and Model Marketer
Her latest post is on spy tools that you can use to see what your competitors are doing. How do they get their traffic,what advertising methods do they use,what keywords do they rank for and who are there Joint Venture partners.
These ideas can help you understand what is working in traffic and what is not and give you market data so you do not have to fly blind. Here is just an example of the great ideas you will get from Kim as she talks about Flippa.com.
“This is one of the best places to go to see proven business
models in action. If you browse the different auctions you’ll
also often get access to their Google Analytics, top keywords,
Adsense Revenue, and much more.
It’s a virtual treasure trove of ‘what’s working now’.
I see a lot of marketers struggling to make money online and
spending thousands of dollars on courses to learn how to
build a business when they could in fact go to Flippa.com
and BUY a business that’s already making money.
And it would cost a whole lot less than the amount of money
they’ve invested in products and courses.
My motto is to ‘learn by doing’.
That’s how you build a successful business.”
It makes sense to follow and model a successful traffic mentor who has learned by doing and is not afraid to share.
