How to attract and collect your leads

In today’s post, I’m going to give you a couple of alternatives for ways to build your list.

To start with you need an autoreponder, because that’s where your list members are going to end up. I mentioned the one I use in one of the follow ups if you have already joined my subscribers. However if you aren’t on my list, I’ll say it again.

I use GVO for the simple reason that it is cheaper for more features than some of the other popular autoresponders. Principal in those features is the fact I also get web hosting for this site. I get a load of other marketing help as well.  Autoresponders give you the ability to add form processing to your websites.

This is the link to follow to join GVO with autoresponder and free website hosting. Domain costs are extra but recommend that you register your domain elsewhere – e.g. GoDaddy as it can often be cheaper –

In WordPress terms what you see on the right hand side of this blog post is a ‘widget’. I can put text, linked images, code and more in widgets. In this case it’s code which collects the info that you put in the form.

I can also embed that code into a ‘splash page’ – also called a ‘lead page’ or ‘capture page’ and other names but the purpose is to put a picture or video in front of your prospective customer which they are sufficiently interested in, to  want to know more about the business or products you are offering.

Here are some examples of the pages that I use to attract people to find out more about Karatbars. This is a Splashwizard page that I created to promote Karatbars.

There are lots of different sites that offer you the possibility to create pages like  this. Many of them are part of marketing systems that you will pay a considerable monthly fee for, because of all their other features.

Others are JUST page creators. You have to decide what it is you want.

On the marketing system side, I would go for Kypron. If you want the whole nine yards of their marketing education, you’ll have to pay for it. If you just want the ability to create a page with an embedded form, it’s absolutely free. You’ll find plenty of information enabling you to build the form and add your code from your autoresponder and a lot of marketing training and information, even included in the free system.

I also pay to be a member of Carl Bailey’s Splashwizard. I could technically do without it and just use Kypron but I have a whole number of pages over there which are out on mailers and other advertising. The advantage of Splashwizard is that I think it is easier to learn and use than Kypron, and the lack of any other complicating functionality makes it fast. You can create a fully functional capture page in less than half an hour with this tool. You can give it a free trial too! Just see how easy it is to work with.

Both have attractive page backgrounds to choose from and layout flexibility for adding text boxes and forms. When you create the form code back in the GVO autoresponder you will have the option to add a tracking code, so that you can have different versions of your form in different pages so you can find out which advertising campaigns your leads are coming from.

Finally I should say that ALL of the links above have the ability to be part of your moneymaking efforts as well as being tools that you need to promote your  business. All of them have good commission structures and pay reliably so you aren’t only making money from your top level business, you are getting additional income from everything you do, every day. The SplashWizard forms are especially good at doing this as every form you create, has your affiliate link embedded in it, so even if the viewer isn’t interested in more info about what you
are promoting, they might well want to find out how you created that beautiful page in order to do the same for their business.

Have a great and productive day. Thanks for reading.

Karatbank Coin – New ICO

Karatbank ICO represents a new venture for the Karatbank/Karatbars family and new ways to participate and earn as an affiliate from the group.

It provides a cryptocurrency that is backed by gold!

For those new to the whole Karatbars gold idea, the move is now to create a real payment system that anyone can use worldwide. So far, cryptocurrencies have failed to really catch on as a payment system because of their volatility, and the lack of stable facilities to do so.  Just a few months ago, you could get a Bitcoin backed prepaid card. Now the card providers have pulled out, leaving many with no means to spend what they own and an asset declining in value.

The Karatbars App – downloadable for Apple and Android provides the route to actually pay people for goods and services.

To sum up.  As a customer and a saver, you have the option to buy the ‘traditional’ Karatbars products, the cards and Cashgold (which looks like a banknote with real gold embedded in it).  Find out more via

You can also buy into the ICO, link coming, but please first read this to ensure that you understand exactly what you are buying.

Karatbank Coin Whitepaper

As a potential affiliate, for traditional Karatbar products – watch the video then follow the link to sign up here  –

To register as an affiliate for the cryptocurrency offering, you need to sign up separately.

Now here is the icing on the cake.  If you are ONLY signing up for the ICO, on the above link, you can ONLY buy with BTC/ETH cryptocurrency and you will get no extra tokens over and above what you pay for.

If you register on or before 18th March 2018 as a full KARATBARS affiliate FIRST,  or you are already a Karatbars affiliate and you now join to buy into the ICO on the link above, then you will get EXTRA TOKENS!  You do this by buying Cashgold first, then purchasing your tokens with the Cashgold option as and when it becomes available which SHOULD be on or before 18th March 2018.

I only just found this out and thought it was essential to add it to the information here in this post.

Please note that there are countries where signing up directly is restricted (USA, Canada for example, but all is not lost and my sponsor can advise about other options open to you) – please ask for advice – sign to my blog subscription  form top right and you will get my direct contact information.  If you are serious about building a Karatbars business you will get my Skype and FB messenger, so you can get in touch with me any time and I can help you.

Finally today, I would just like to give a shout out to my exceptional Karatbars sponsor,  upline Brian McGinty.  Brian is an absolutely stellar affiliate and has built a huge Karatbars business which doubled in size last year.  If you register as an affiliate for Karatbars, Karatbank Coin through me, you will automatically get his regular newsletters and training which will be invaluable to you in building a business – you will not be alone!

Gold for 2018

So far as savers are concerned, the Western economy is still flat and there are few gains to be made by sticking to conventional savings routes like bank and building society accounts.  Shares are considered too risky for many people and too difficult to manage.

Even property is not making substantial gains in the UK and USA unless you can afford to invest in a real premium area like a capital city or a development area.

The UK Government are trying to expand the number of new homes built and to some extent they are clamping down on buy to let but it is still profitable to a degree.  The emphasis is more and more on affordable homes where the rental profits are not so high. However most savers are just not in that market.

Many people still think gold is about going to a bullion dealer and coming home with gold bars which then need secure storage. Karatbars is NOT like that!

You can invest in small amounts of gold which comes in values that ordinary people who can afford to put less than £100 GBP a month away, can still go for. It comes in a format like a credit card which you can easily store securely at home or there are options for Karatbars to store your gold for you if you wish.

This is not a short term or get rich quick option at least not at the moment. Gold is for the long term, it makes a great saving option for a child for instance or as part of a pension plan.

Karatbars also have a very unique crypto currency offering which has only just emerged. I’ll post more details of that in the coming days when I get to know it better myself.

My offering is to potential savings customers and also to people who want to join a reputable company to build a home based business with an absolutely foolproof and attractive product.

Please take a look here in the first instance.
