There was an old Saturday Night Live skit that featured Dan Aykroyd as a stereotypical TV pitch-man…you might remember it. He was selling a very unique product.
It was a floor wax.
But not just ANY floor wax. This one also doubled as a dessert topping.
So THAT is what I immediately thought of when my friends Rod Beckwith and Mike Filsaime each told me about Butterfly Reports (still in beta, at
Because while Rod was telling me how great a tool it was for generating free TARGETED traffic, Mike was going on about how it was a wildly effective VIRAL method for making affiliate sales.
(Rod and Mike designed and built this system together.)
THE AFFILIATE PART
What they do is — and this is really kind of cool — they have written dozens of high value, targeted reports(ebooks, actually). You join and enter in your Clickbank or PayDotCom affiliate IDs. You pick a report, and the system makes you a personal copy of the report with YOUR affiliate links in it.
So now you have free opt-in content. Free bonus content. Free products you can sell….
And when people use the links in the books, you earn your affiliate commission.
THE TRAFFIC PART
So the way you can generate traffic to your own site is that — I think for a limited time — YOU can submit your own report to the system. Now other people can download YOUR report with THEIR affiliate IDs in them.
So when they distribute this report, YOU will get new traffic to your site when people follow the links.Plus you get new affiliates, who send you even more traffic.
You see how that works?
Better than dessert actually…no matter HOW shiny it makes your floors.
STILL IN BETA
So as I said, the system is still in Beta testing. They want to know how well it works for marketers like us. They need comments, testimonials, and suggestions to make it better.
Can you help?
Understand that if you do, you'll get full access to the entire system.
Oh, and one other thing….During the Beta period, It's free.
That's right. During the Beta Test period, the service is free.
I just signed up (though I'd have happily paid for it). And if you'd like more traffic, or if you want to generate traffic to your site, give it a shot.
To Your Success,
P.S. We're at the very beginning of this new tool…but you may not realize yet why that's so important.
THERE ARE ONLY A FEW REPORTS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW
The people who get their own reports into the system first will get the greatest total exposure from all the new traffic that's about to hit the site.
So, chances are, they'll be looking for topics like yours. And if yours if the only report for your topic, your report will get distributed a LOT.
Like I said, I'm signed up, and about to give it a try.
Maybe YOU should, too.
