IMWithJamie Course #9:
Are you new to IMWithJamie? Access worksheets 1-8 for past projects. Right now, we are going to be working on finding traffic sources for all the major niches and building huge email lists from them.

Feedback from Jamie:

I notice that most students have good websites. Just make sure you have an opt in box. Alot of the time there is no opt in box on alot of students websites. My students also have very good ideas. Sure we will perhaps re-visit website critiques if you get traffic and there is a problem, but I would like to focus on traffic for the coming up month of June.

The answers to most questions are "Yes" (I will explain what I mean..) When someone asks me "Do you think anger/depression is a good niche," My answer is yes. My answer is "YES" most of the time because I taught you guys how to be perfect marketers. Dont second guess yourselves.

From now on, I would like to spend our time critiquing your traffic campaigns. Your articles, your forum posts, your PPC campaigns and SEO projects. If you would allow me to critique your projects in front of the class, you get first priority. If you would like me to keep it private, please say so when you send me the URL's in the questions box. In this case, I will verbally explain what you should do without going into that much detail (for your benefit)

As an affiliate, Promote 1 to 2 offers a week with your list, (If you have one) 2 mailings a day. (Make sure that you also provide funny stories, attention grabbing headlines, resources and free stuff as well.)
