Welcome to Plug-In Profit Site Training

Hello and welcome to this Plug-In Profit Site training blog! My name is Suzanne Morrison and I started this blog a number of years ago now for the purpose of helping and training Plug-In Profit Site (PIPS) members.

On this site you'll find lots of training tips and articles to help you promote your site. You'll also find a number of reviews of individual programs within the Plug-In Profit Site. Please bear in mind when you read these that there have been a number of changes to PIPS over the years, so many of the programs that I reviewed are no longer a part of the Plug-In Profit Site anymore.

If you are thinking of joining the Plug-In Profit site, you may want to read my Plug-In Profit Site Review to help you decide whether or not it is the right business opportunity for you.

If you are already a member you may be interested in registering for my free Plug-In Profit Site training by email. When you register you will also receive a free EBook called "30 Ways to Get Free Traffic in 30 Minutes or Less" worth $97. Just as the name suggests, this will teach you how to get lots of free targeted traffic to your website.

Here are a few of the most popular posts from this website (all these links open in a new window)

I hope these tips help you to make a success of your Plug-In Profit site.

If you need some additional help with promoting and making money from your site, you may also want to consider coaching at the Affiliate Power Group. It's more affordable than you may think, with a 10 day trial for just $1. Inside there is a 12 week traffic plan that focuses on free ways to promote your website. We can also help you on a 1-1 basis with making your Plug-In Profit site more unique, critiquing your site for you or helping to to increae your traffic and sales.

If you have any questions about the Plug-In Profit Site please feel free to contact me on my helpdesk.

Traffic Wave Added to the Plug-In Profit Site

NOTE - Traffic Wave has now been removed from PIPS, so this post is no longer applicable.

On January 13th Stone made the decision to remove Lawn Chair Millionaire from the Plug-In Profit Site and replace it with Traffic Wave.

Traffic Wave is a fully functional autoresponder, so it is a product that pretty much every online business needs and this should make it easier to sell and refer others too. The company was founded in 2000 and is Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited

I think this is a good decision as Traffic Wave is much more affordable than LCM, provides a good solid product (unlike LCM) and they provide a nice 100% commission on the initial sale. This means that although it costs $17.95 per month, you only need to refer one other person to break even for that month.

When you join Traffic Wave you have two options. The first is a 30 day trial, which is great for the undecided, especially since you don't even need to add your credit card details. The second option, which I took, was the $17.95 per month option. This gives you the immediate ability to earn commissions.

Remember to login to your Plug-In Profit Site affiliate area and add your Traffic Wave ID so that you get full credit for any referrals you make!

If you want an autoresponder without the monthly fee, you may want to consider GetResponse - they have a free account for up to 100 subscribers and bigger accounts for a reasonable monthly fee

Get Traffic to Your Site with Sweeva

Over the last few days I've been using a unique traffic exchange called Sweeva. Sweeva is free to join and works in a completely different way to most traffic exchanges.

Here are the main differences:

1) Everyone views your site at the same time - you use credits to bid for a particular time of day and when that time arrives, if you have bid enough credits, everyone who is logged on to Sweeva at that time can view your site and nobody elses.

2) Get Live Feedback on your Website - People can vote Yes, No or Unsure when they view your website and they can leave comments. A lot of people seem to leave completely useless comments, but the Yes and No voting will give you an idea of how well your page is received.

3) Unique Features - you can accumulate points and credits and unlock features by particpating. Participating means viewing other peoples' pages, leaving comments, tweeting, promoting your splash page, referring other people, using the toolbar and more. The benefit in this is that everyone has to participate to get value, which means more people to view your pages.

I've only been using Sweeva for a few days, so it is too early to write a full review, but it seems more responsive than most traffic exchanges and it's also fun to unlock features and climb the different levels :-) You can also watch people commenting on and rating your site live!

Sweeva, like other traffic exchange style sites works best when you advertise a short splash page or lead capture page rather than a long sales page or your home page.

Upgrading in Sweeva will give you credits every month, double credits for viewing sites and various other benefits, but you can also join Sweeva for Free.

Review of GDI (Global Domains International)

GDI - Global Domains International, also known as has been a Plug-In Profit site program for over a year now, so I thought it was about time that I reviewed it!

Read my review of GDI below to find out: what is GDI, how much does it cost?, is GDI a scam? what do you get for your money? how much commission can you make? and what are the advantages and disadvantages?

Review of GDI

What is GDI?
GDI is a business opportunity and a domain registration/hosting service.

What do you receive as a GDI member?
You receive a domain name with the .ws extension and a hosting account for that domain name. You also have access to a basic website builder. The hosting account provides up to 100Mb of disk space and 10Gb of traffic.

How much does it cost?
GDI offers a 1 week free trial and after 1 week the cost is $10 per month.

What does the Compensation Plan Offer?
The basic residual compensation is $1 per month per person that you sign up to GDI. This is only a 10% residual commission so it doesn't seem like, much, but you also get $1 for every person that everyone in your downline signs up. This makes it more powerful as it is easier to build up a good residual commission. I don't do much promotion for GDI and it is not my main business opportunity, but my residual commission is usually around the $150-200 per month mark

The big money is in the GDI bonuses. If you sign up 5 people in one week you receive a $100 bonus. If you sign up 10 people, this becomes a $200 bonus. This continues and you get $100 for every 5 people that you signup within 1 week.

How do I get paid?
GDI can either pay you by US $ check or by Paypal.

The bonuses can only be paid by Paypal.

How do you promote GDI?
You can promote GDI in all the usual ways, e.g. on your website, using classifieds, pay per click advertising, writing reviews, distributing articles etc. In addition to this you can also use their videos and DVDs, their tell a friend system or purchase leads from them.

If you are a member of the Plug-In Profit site, you can promote this opportunity passively by promoting the Plug-In Profit Site sales page.

What is their customer support like?
GDI has a customer support email address and an online FAQ. To request support you must login to your account and click on the "Request Support" button. I've used their support service a few times over the last few years and always received a satisfactory response within 1-2 business days.

What are the disadvantages / cons of GDI?
One annoying thing is that you have to jump through a few hoops before you can get paid bonuses. You need to sign and fax or mail in various affiliate agreements, purchase 10 DVDs (which you can use for promotion), provide a photo and testimonial and setup a .ws email address in Paypal. This is all very annoying, but you only have to do it once and this is only for bonus payments, not regular commissions.

GDI is an MLM (multi level marketing program). This basically means that you can earn commissions on multiple levels (e.g. sales that your affiliates make as well as your own sales). Some people are against MLM programs, so this is why I mention it here.

The website builder is pretty limited and there is also a limit of 10 pages. If you want to build a decent website you would be better downloading a free website builder program such as NVU.

What are the advantages / pros of GDI?
The main advantages of GDI in my opinion are:
  • Low entry cost and monthly cost
  • Easy to cover your monthly fee (10 signups)
  • Free trial and videos makes this opportunity easy to sell
  • Good bonus compensation plan
  • Above average retention rate
  • Basic website, domain name and hosting included, which is easy for newbies to setup.

I hope you found this review of GDI useful. If you need to know more, you can sign up for GDI for a free 1 week trial and try it out for yourself.
