Conventional thinking would dictate that you should get full credit for a 40,000 word blog post when you wrote it. You write, you get the reward. This was not (entirely) the case for Aaron Agius however when he wrote tens of thousands of words for QuickSprout.com. His name didn’t appear as the author, and he didn’t get paid. Why then would he waste days of his time to content that sits on someone else’s site published under someone else's name? Aaron Agius understands the power within other people’s audiences, when those audiences are bigger and more established than his own. Aaron is adept at identifying co-authored content and guest post opportunities then exploiting them for his own gain. On this episode, you will discover how Aaron leverages high trafficked sites to get more 'eye balls' and build his brand.

Nov 25 2014 42 mins  
In my experience, there are two very different Facebook ads camps. The first camp are those who have tried Facebook advertising, but for whom it has not worked. The second camp are those who have tried, then honed their skills on the platform and are now reaping the rewards from successful Facebook campaigns. Getting the best out of Facebook's ads platform requires more than just striking images and compelling ad copy, it requires a well architected funnel, it requires analysis and attention to detail and it requires a willingness to keep up with Facebook's fast changing advertising functions.

TJ52 – Pareto Rule: 80/20 Law of Sales and Marketing That Multiplies Results ~ Perry Marshall
Oct 28 2014 40 mins  
Fractals exist in every aspect of the universe, and yes, the rule works on sales and marketing too! 80% of your results come from 20% of your marketing, and of that top 20% of marketing, there's another 20% delivering 80% of those results. Keeping track so far? If not, then here's the rub. 64% of your marketing results are coming from just 4% of your efforts. When you know how this Fractal Pareto rule works, you can apply this 80/20 principle in your business for dramatically better results. On this episode we show you how! OUR GUEST: Perry Marshall is the leading authority on sales growth through 80/20 leverage and the most highly regarded Google Adwords expert. Entrepreneur Magazine says, "Perry Marshall is the #1 author and world's most-quoted consultant on Google Advertising. He has helped over 100,000 advertisers save literally billions of dollars in AdWords stupidity tax." It was in 2002 shortly after Adwords was first introduced that Perry Marshall got started with Google ads. He studied closely how Adwords works and in 2007 published the best selling book, The Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords. In 2007, Marshall was a featured consultant on The Next Internet Millionaire, a reality show hosted by Joel Comm. He spoke with contestants on Richard Koch's 80/20 rule as it applied to internet advertising and his philosophy of investing in grassroots marketing. It was then that his understanding of the universal Pareto rule was formed. Perry's 2013 book, 80/20 Sales and Marketing: The Definitive Guide to Working Less and Making More expanded Koch's work on the Pareto Principle to online methods for expanding business sales and profits. This was a continuation of the work he'd founded on The Next Internet Millionaire. Here are some of the highlights from the 52nd episode of the Traffic Jam Podcast... What is Pareto Principle?

TJ48 – How to Guest Blog Effectively Using the Expanded Guest Post Formula ~ Bryan Harris
Sep 30 2014 41 mins  
Getting your content in front of other people's audiences by guest blogging is a killer strategy without doubt. Appear on the right blog and you'll get more visibility and the potential for more targeted traffic and leads. But the problem is, most people don't know how to guest blog effectively. The traditional guest blog post (that most people write) is a 500-1000 word article that ends with a link back to their site hidden inside an author bio. Some people click that link, most people don’t. The conversation stops at the last sentence. There is no compelling call to action and no incentive for readers to visit their site and join their email list. The result...a dribble of traffic and the odd new subscriber. By contrast Bryan Harris has the EGP Formula which regularly nets him 500+ subscribers from one single blog post. OUR GUEST: Bryan Harris has been entrepreneurial all his life, and like most entrepreneurs he's addicted to creating stuff. From the baseball stand he built and ran out of his bedroom at the age of 7, to the videos he produced in college, Brian has always made stuff. His most recent creation is VideoFruit.com, a website focussed on providing practical tips on how to use and make video, as well as step-by-step plans (or formula's as Brian calls them) to help you grow your business. Bryan and VideoFruit.com have risen to notoriety in recent months resulting in appearances for Brian on Mixergy and Noah Kagan's OK Dork. Brian once lived on a house boat for 5 years and taught Ballroom dancing for a period. Here are some of the highlights from this episode of the Traffic Jam Podcast... The Expanded Guest Post Formula. Bryan's Post at The Lead Pages Blog. Guest Posting Possibilities. The List Post. Content Types That Will Work Effectively. Reasons Why Guest Posts Flop. The TV Show Strategy.

TJ47 – Website Launch Strategy: How To Kick Start Your New or Existing Blog with Corbett Barr
Sep 23 2014 38 mins  
Every day 2 million blog posts are written (enough to fill Time Magazine for 770 years). Thousands of blogs are launched every day. The internet is awash with blogs, but very few of those blogs are blogs that matter. Truth is most bloggers launch to a deathly silence. No traffic, no engagement and no impact. Even if those bloggers work through their early failure, the likelihood of their blog taking off is incredibly low. Unless that is they have a website launch strategy for their blog. Corbett Barr has developed such a strategy by studying the differences between 'most' blogs and the select few that actually attract at large following. This formula (shared on this podcast) is what Corbett used to create blogs that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors per month (including Think Traffic and Fizzle). OUR GUEST: Corbett Barr is Co-Founder and CEO of Fizzle.co; A podcast and community for creative entrepreneurs, writers, makers, coders and artists, all working to support themselves independently on the world-wide-web.
