Episode 31: Creating Listings That Drive Sales

Play

podcast cover

Holy smokes, Batman! This has to be the most impressive interview I’ve done in my life. It’s also the longest podcast to date as well (with good reason, I promise). I had the time of my life interviewing Mike Monroe of fbacopy.com. For a little over an HOUR, Mike holds nothing back as he shares the simple and effective ways to begin exploding your Seller Central account with sales! Join me as I pick Mike’s brain to discover:

  • The 5 words you’ll want to avoid to strengthen your copy
  • What  BIGGEST mistake Mike’s sees repeatedly and how you can use it to your advantage
  • The missing opportunity to optimize for mobile, proven to boost sales
  • How your headline may be actually turning potential buyers away!
  • Keyword tools that make it embarrassingly simple to rank for the keywords competitors often miss
  • And oh so much more!

Mike did an amazing job of sharing with us the specific resources that’s aided to his success. In the interview he mentions the following and I just KNOW you’ll take advantage:

http://amzsecrets.com/as-20-amazon-greyhat-ranking-secret-ranking-with-the-corporate-guys/  —  Dave deep dives into some of the stuff that OTHER people are doing… easily stay ahead of your competitors

http://jordanmalik.com/blog/asm/  —  “Not a copywriting episode, but ASK JORDAN is awesome and in this course he dives into various courses.  If the goal is to do the 20% that gets you 80% results (and you’re just starting out) then this is a great place to start… AFTER you’ve read and listened to everything on Ry’s blog!” ~Mr. Mike Monroe

http://thesmallbizexpress.com/sbx-25-make-business-standout-crowd/  — “An episode all about copywriting.  My favorite guest I ever had on our old show.  Kevin Rogers is a copy guru.  And listening to him talk is pure hilarity.” ~Mr. Mike Monroe
