ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Ippei!

Until 2014, like many of the people I review, I was working in a corporate job from 9 to 5.

Not only was it soul-crushing, but it didn't give me any time to pursue my bigger goals.

That was until I discovered a method to rank sites organically, generating free leads for my clients.

That website you see above, for the tree care company, I created it in 2015, and since then I haven't had to touch or update it:

It has gained me a passive income of $2000 a month.

That's more than $100,000 for one site, in 5 years.

That's the magic of the Lead Generation business, it's by far the best model to generate passive income. If you want to know more, just hop over here!

Internet Traffic Marketing Overview

internet traffic mastery review

What To Expect In This Course:

Internet Traffic Mastery includes 12 modules and over 14 hours of video content about traffic generation and securing multiple sources.

Get first hand knowledge for a price tag of $997.

Vick's had personal success with the techniques he shares, and advises that this course is created for both beginners and seasoned sellers.

You'll learn:

  • Strategies on getting unlimited traffic on-demand

  • Why you need to know the rules & how to play the game

  • Converting traffic without spending money

  • When & where to pay for traffic

  • How to dominate your market

Module 1: Traffic Rules, Strategy, Game Plan

Module one begins with a welcome, quick bio of Vick and why this course should be seen as an investment in yourself and your business.

He explains what you can expect to learn and recommends that you go through the training three times:

  1. Just watch
  2. Take notes
  3. Implement

Vick encourages students to go at their own pace and build upon each action when they are confident in their execution.

Key Takeaways

  • It's not about the product-it's about the offer.
  • Capture your traffic before you send them to your sales page by building your list and connecting with them on a personal level.

The two levels of traffic are:

  1. External-advertising
  2. Internal-marketing
  • Without a custom tracking system, it's impossible to scale and Vick recommends a subscription with Clickmagik

Module 2: Influencer Traffic Media

To win you need to get your website in front of millions of people on-demand, and that means taping into the right kind of people.

Take advantage of social media platforms (one or a combination of several) to put your landing page in front of your target audience.

Vick goes through each social media platform and the best resources to use to connect with influencers.

Networks that act as 'middlemen' to optimize your campaign and get your creatives in front of more people like:

  • Instagram: Influenz
  • Snapchat: Izea
  • Twitter: Scrunch

  • Facebook: Socialix
  • YouTube
  • Bloggers: Google
  • Podcasts: iTunes

Key Takeaways

  • Create an individual tracking link for each influencer you employ and determine their stats around:
  1. How many visitors?
  2. How many opt-ins?
  3. How much does it cost to acquire a lead?
  • Figure out the top performers, establish a relationship and bypass the network.
  • Find a successful or up-and-coming podcast and become a sponsor.
  • Podcasts are a virtually untouched market but create 'echo' or residual traffic because they're recorded and will be seen in the future by new viewers.

Module 3: The 24-Hour Traffic Media

Understand specific traffic areas with strategies to deploy a variety of sources and follow this process:

  • Create a good offer

  • Test it out

  • Get results

  • Scale

To generate more traffic, you need to take advantage of specific sources (pools) and Vick recommends three arenas including:

01

Traffic Agencies:

Go to their list owners and send traffic to your site

Perfect for beginners

Easy to get started

Cost-effective

02

Email Media Buys/Email Drops:

More advanced technique 

More expensive than traffic agencies

Use a site like Nextmark

03

Networks:

Intermediaries between traffic resellers and buyers

Advanced strategy

Use a site like Udimi

Using these methods correctly can get you results in 24 hours or less.

Key Takeaways

  • Deploy multiple channels to get people in front of your website.
  • You need to be different, stand out, 'build you' and ask yourself:
  1. Why do you exist?
  2. Why should anybody care?
  • By delivering something unique: this is how you win.

Module 4: Social Media Traffic

It's about strategy and siphoning massive amounts of traffic.

Using social media networks, specifically Facebooks and YouTube, to get highly targeted and fresh traffic to your site through casual associations and paid methods.

Build your list by leveraging social media platforms where you can survey people and find out what they're looking for.

Then it's up to you to deliver content that is unique and provides value to your viewers.

When you become indispensable and specific to your marketplace by connecting with your audience because of your value and high-quality content you will create viralocity and scale your business.

Key Takeaways

  • You need to be creative and think 'outside the box' when it comes to your content and lives.
  • Facebook lives and YouTube videos are an excellent strategy that allows you to share content and engage with your target audience.
  • Run contests that include specific rules like:
  1. Comment
  2. Like
  3. Share
  • Pick a winner on your next live-this strategy not only encourages engagement with your audience, but is a free way for your content to go viral and reach a broader audience.
  • You need to be confident and present as a leader for this technique to be effective.

Module 5: Search Media Traffic

Vick advises beginners to 'get their feet wet' with other methods covered in the training before attempting to run paid ads.

He covers setting up Google and Bing ad campaigns but is clear not to spend a ton of money.

Utilize Google and Bing support to help walk you through setting up your ad and ensure it meets compliance standards.

Key Takeaways

  • Never depend on just one source for your traffic.
  • The key is to diversify and approach marketing from a different angle than your competition, which can be achieved by optimizing your ads to your ideal target market.
  • A quick way to identify keywords people are searching for is to type the first word into the search engine and view what long-tail keywords pop up.
  • Implementing choice keywords into your campaign will get 'hungry traffic' hitting your site because you have what they're looking for.

Module 6: Display Traffic Media

Module 6 includes 8 videos, and it's advisable to take notes as Vick covers a ton of content around quick and long-term strategies to generate traffic.

Find out where the crowd is congregating and make yourself stand out with creatives on platforms like:

  • Clickbank
  • JVzoo
  • Forums
  • Blogs
  • Major Networks (affiliate network sites like Fox News)

Your creatives (banners) need to be catchy and grab people's attention, and Vick shares his five top tips:

Top 5 Tips For Creatives:
  • Sour Thumb

  • Irresistible/Shocking Headline

  • Weird Image

  • Ugly/Plain Text

  • Brand Build/Familiarity Reminder (for retargeting)

This technique is referred to as interruption marketing.

Creating an ad that gets in front of online visitors and sends them to a sales page.

Like a trip to the mall when you're stopped by a vendor offering free samples, the goal is that by interrupting visitors you convert them into buying customers.

Key Takeaways

  • Identify where your target audience is gathering and learn how to:
  1. Get in front of them with the right message
  2. Get their attention
  3. Redirect them to your site
  • You can achieve this outcome with a 'unique creative' but if you're not skilled at design it's better to outsource this step to a qualified professional.
  • Advertising on major networks is expensive but highly lucrative when done correctly.

Module 7: Retargeting Traffic

Leverage algorithms, retarget quality traffic and be everywhere like an unstoppable force that:

  • Dominates your market
  • Builds brand & trust 
  • Connects with customers, prospects & groups

Vick also shows you how to create custom ads on Facebook, and walks you through the process of setting up an AdRoll account to fully monetize your retargeting strategy.

picture of vick in module 7 ITM

You can get in front of millions of people for pennies a day, but the key is to always have a strategy and monetize every click to your landing page to build your mailing list.

Using retargeting platforms like AdRoll and Facebook to reach people that have seen your site and will now 'see you wherever they go'. But before you monetize this suggestion be sure you have retargeting pixels on your landing page so you know with certainty what's working.

Additional topics covered in this module:
  • Recommended Autoresponder

  • Google Content Networks

Key Takeaways

  • Your landing page is the front door to your business, and every single click must have its own custom tracking link going to your landing page. 
  • Take these clicks to collect and build your mailing list, as your list needs to be deliberately manufactured by leveraging multiple external traffic sources. 
  • Your list and your relationship with your list are the most important asset you can ever have in your business.
  • Utilize AdRoll and retarget your audience with ads/videos, cutting costs by retargeting the same people-but you need to have a pool of people before you can deploy this strategy.

Module 8: CPA Traffic Media

Get ‘an army of affiliates' to send visitors to your site for minimal costs with CPA marketing. A type of affiliate marketing that means cost per action where you only pay for results.

An advanced strategy, Vick stresses that beginners should not use this technique until they master other methods outlined in the course.

You can ‘blow up your business’ with this tactic but you need:

  • A winning offer
  • Identify a particular action
  • Connect with the best CPA Networks
image of clickbooth website

 A few top CPA Networks include:

  1. Max Bounty
  2. Clickbooth
  3. Peer Fly

These networks vet their affiliates, which means you’re not getting spam sent to your site, you're getting quality traffic.

Key Takeaways

  • You need to have a converting offer (that is more than a one time deal) to secure multiple streams of income and be prepared to outspend your competition.
  • Outplay your competitors with your list by adding value and building trusting relationships before you send them to your sales page.
  • Register on CPA Networks as an advertiser not an affiliate or publisher to best leverage these platforms.

Module 9: Strategic Syndicate Traffic Media

Scale your business by strategically syndicating with other people.

This technique is not about prospects-it's about buyers-and can be accomplished without running a single ad or spending any money.

But you need to have traction in your market and be advanced in your understanding.

Your offer has to be a 'win-win' for both companies, not just for your business.  

To generate massive payouts follow Vick's step-by-step formula:

Build Your Empire

Identify/Create Allies

Create A Win-Win Strategy That Includes:

  • bonuses
  • content creation
  • collaborative promotion
  • affiliate partners
  • must-have recommendations

Effective Communication

Long-Term Vision

Key Takeaways

  • You need to approach syndicate marketing from the angle of 'how can I give' rather than thinking 'what can I get' or you won't be successful with this technique.
  • Know everything about their business and be genuine in your quest to help them get to the next level (this is how you get in front of their buyers).
  • Establish a win-win relationship to get your link in front of their customers and vice versa, creating shared exposure that you can use to leverage your business.
  • This strategy is for 'players' and is not a beginner technique, so you need to have a presence in your market (not unlike the relationship between Four Percent and Clickfunnels) for this method to work.

Module 10: Perpetual Traffic Machine

What if you could get massive amounts of new traffic to your site daily without spending a dime?

What if you focused on the idea instead of the tactic?

Tactics come and go so you need to become difficult to replace in your market with a plan that includes:

image of module 10 video
  • Creating Value
  • Soft Pitch
  • Link (call to action)

Vick’s not teaching theory he’s teaching strategy, and this too is an advanced method that takes work, but when implemented correctly will take your business next level.

Key Takeaways

  • Vick's strategy is to turn customers/prospects into affiliates by establishing a win-win situation through a systematic approach to affiliate marketing programs. For example, if your targeting insurance agents, they might need an autoresponder, or a site builder, so you can get these people's emails and market to them different tools for affiliate commission such as:
  1. Clickfunnels
  2. Aweber
  • Vick believes that one of the main problems most affiliate marketers have is that they are only promoting one product to their traffic, but what if your traffic doesn't like the product you're offering?
  • His solution is to develop a system to offer a variety of products that can help that person by first getting that potential customer on your email list because of your value, and then introducing them to various products.

Module 11: Traffic Media X

Get new traffic and never depend on others again by expanding your skill set and learning how to locate sources.

Where are your competitors' getting traffic?

Vick recommends a couple of paid resources, specific tools that show where the competition's getting traffic and percentage breakdowns from places like:

  • Referrals
  • Search
  • Platforms

  • Advertising

  • Similar Sites

Key Takeaways

  • Tactics and platforms will change, so go for strategy and know where and how to locate new traffic sources using tools like: Similar Web and AdPlexity.
  • Long-term success depends on 'your ability to keep doing what you're doing' and being on the cutting edge of traffic generation.
  • Outsourcing traffic generation is not recommended (if you do be clear you first understand the landscape and know exactly what they're doing).

Module 12: The Ultimate Traffic Media

The most potent traffic source is one you create using your external traffic sources.

Module 12 highlights the importance of internal traffic and it's all about your list.

A list that you have deliberately built and fostered will generate the best traffic ever.

But it's not about sending 50 emails with your sales pitch, it's about creating relationships that build on your:

  • Credibility
  • Value
  • Uniqueness
  • Trustworthiness
  • Respectability
estage logo

Send emails inviting contacts on your list to 'hang out' and make them feel welcome.

Referred to as content or attraction marketing, this is potent stuff.

Get people to come to you by offering a ton of free value at the beginning, and the law of reciprocity states that when you give something to people, they feel obligated to give back.

When you're shelling out free content that helps people, they start to trust who you are and (not everyone but some of them) will become loyal customers.

Key Takeaways

  • Deploy strategies directing your external marketing traffic to your landing page, and you will create the most potent traffic source imaginable.
  • Your blueprint to establishing the ultimate traffic media looks like this:
  1. Build your list via external traffic sources
  2. Channel your list to a platform (Vick recommends Four Percent's eStage)
  3. Establish trust, credibility, value, etc.
  • Your platform is where you create your 'master list'. People that trust you and feel loyal to you and your brand and will purchase products you recommend.

Final Thoughts:

Vick knows what he's talking about and reviews from students are positive.

He focuses on evergreen strategies and the idea behind them but not specifics because he wants his students to become independent.

This course is recommended for beginners as well as veterans, but a lot of his methods are really advanced so if you’re a beginner a chunk of the training will definitely be over your head.

Vick states several times throughout the course that you don’t need to master or deploy every method.

Take your time and build on each method you successfully master, but it's still pretty progressive stuff for a beginner.

A couple of other pros and cons worth mentioning:

Pros

  • Vick is an engaging and animated speaker.
  • High-quality content.
  • Strategies that can be implemented for any online business.

  • Outstanding refund policy.

Cons

  • A few techniques are a bit dated.

  • Some overlap around information taught in past training programs.
  • A lot of advanced methods that will be difficult for beginners to understand & implement.
  • Less expensive options.

Should you buy this course?

If you’re ready to learn and want to scale then Internet Traffic Mastery is worth purchasing.

But if you’re not ready to commit to some hard work and a pretty steep learning curve this course might not be the best fit.

Vick teaches different types of traffic strategies, but a few will become exhausted and ineffectual the more other marketers use them.

Vick's training also doesn't have adequate SEO training to harness the best source of traffic-Google organic search.

Build quality content and have a strategy to get in front of as many people as possible-one reason why lead generation made so much sense to me.

What Is Lead Generation?

Vick shares some solid strategies and a ton of applicable techniques on how to generate traffic to your online business, but he tends to focus a lot on paid methods like PPC, display campaigns, etc.

Great stuff if you have the funds to back you up, but it can get pricey pretty fast when you don't.

The difference with lead generation is you can get online traffic without paid ads by building and ranking websites that generate organic leads.

Think of your lead generation sites like digital properties-online billboards advertising services provided by local businesses.

Build one-build fifty.

With over 400 niches to choose from there's no limit to how many sites you can build.

Once those sites start generating leads, you sell those leads to business owners looking to scale their biz like I did with this tree site I built in 2015.

One of my first lead gen properties it's been making me $2000/month for the last six years.

Tree Site

Why I Do Lead Generation Now Instead Of Affiliate Marketing:

I made some decent coin with affiliate marketing back in the day, and both of my businesses have been quite successful.

With lead generation, I've been able to achieve higher monthly profits on a consistent basis.

But with affiliate marketing, my monthly income was affected by a ton of variables that I don't worry about with lead generation like:

Lead Generation
  • It’s a skillset-that means a higher barrier to entry

  • Every postal code is an opportunity
  • Specific niches produce semi-passive income streams quickly

  • Pretty hands-off once your sites are ranked & generating leads

  • You're in control of your financial compensation

Affiliate Marketing
  • Low barrier to entry (oversaturated market)

  • Super competitive

  • Challenging to find profitable niches with products that will actually sell

  • It takes time & effort to generate a passive income

  • No control over Affiliate Program commission structures 

What I Like About Lead Generation:

Lead generation isn't a rich quick scheme, but for me, it's been much easier to generate a steady stream of income than affiliate marketing.

I don't have to worry about selling enough products or taking lower commissions to keep an affiliate programs' business.

Lead generation is six simple steps:

When you have the right processes in place, lead generation becomes uncomplicated, and I was fortunate to find this course.

A program that takes you through the exact steps to be successful with lead generation, and is so easy to learn and implement that even seniors in our program of over 7000 students are killing it.

This business model checks all of the boxes and has allowed me to reach $52K/month, something I could never achieve on a consistent basis with affiliate marketing.

  1. Vick, I watched a video seminar last night 3-25-2019, and wanted to take the offer of 997.00 but I didn’t have it in my account until today. Do I still have the opportunity to purchase it ? Please let me know if it is possible.

    Thank You
