Free Internet Marketing Tip 230

Premium We Have Lift-off!
by Patrick Oborn, VP of Marketing

Joshua, a few weeks ago we released what we call "Premium Sites", a "web-site-in-a-box" site builder that enables you to deploy new web sites that contain XML plug-ins, keyword registries, link exchange, content randomizers, and geographic keyword targeting capability. During the past month we've received a ton of great feedback that has further enabled us to make the product better and easier to use. More details are in the August newsletter below!

Premium Sites Now Available!
After several years of development and a lot of imagination, Commission River has created the ultimate marketing machine: GeoQuote Premium. Powered by the new Premium Site Wizard (pictured here) you can point and click your way to a robust PHP GeoQuote site that will be search engine friendly. We have harnessed many of our search engine optimization techniques and strategies and built them into the new Premium Sites, enabling agents to create content for their new sites without having to know a lick of PHP or HTML.

Each Premium Site comes equipped with a GeoQuote plug-in, Link Management Software, content randomizers, and a keyword registry. We'll show you what keywords you should be working on, and which keywords no other agents are targeting.

To order your Premium Site, visit your back office, mouse over marketing and then click Premium Site. It’s that easy!

Premium Site FAQ
Here is a brief list of answers to commonly asked questions:

1. What does a Premium Site cost?
Ans: A Premium Site retails for $149. This is a one-time site configuration cost. You will ultimately own the site code and you will be able to host the site with any web hosting company that provides PHP5 hosting.

2. How do I pay for a Premium Site?
Ans: At the end of the order form you will be able to pay for the Premium Site in any combination of three ways: 1) by credit card through Google checkout, 2) with River Dollars (more on this later), and 3) using commission savings you have accrued.

3. Do I have to know HTML or PHP to set up a Premium Site?
Ans: No. Each site is configurable using our brand new "Premium Site Wizard". The Wizard is a web interface that will enable you to point and click your way to a fully custom, search engine-ready site complete with link exchange software, content randomization, and keyword suggestions based upon Google and MSN analytics.

4. If I have an old Premium or Platinum Site, can I trade that in for a new Premium Site?
Ans: Yes, any old Premium site, Platinum site, or GeoQuote PLUS site is eligible for a free trade-in. If you have a site that you would like to exchange, please send an email to with your Name, AgentID, and URL of your old site and we will credit your account with $149 River Dollars upon approval. The trade-in window will expire on October 31, 2009, so if you have a site you'd like to trade in for River Dollars (which can be used to by a new Premium Site) you need to hurry.

5. What is the next Premium Site coming out, and when will it be ready?
Ans: The next Premium Site that is scheduled to be developed is the Cellular Premium Site, which will come with 5 different layouts/colors and feature XML-driven content (such as the 10 most popular cellular phones which will update each week). The estimated release of the Cellular site is November 2009.

Search Engine Optimization and Strategy Workshop
Mark your calendar for our first In-Person Training Meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday, September 26, 2009, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Adam Edwards, Gene Culver, and I will be hosting and speaking. We'll be covering these items and much more:
  • The new Premium Plus sites
  • Search engine optimization strategies
  • Using Premium Sites to help your other sites rise to the top of Google
  • New vendor releases
The event will take place at the
Hilton Garden Inn Ft. Lauderdale / Hollywood Airport
180 SW 18th Ave., Dania Beach, FL 33004

This is NOT an "opportunity meeting" - bring your laptops so that you can work on your new premium site while we teach you. This is a "hands-on" educational workshop.

RSVP Link:

*Note - there is no fee for the event. The only prerequisite is that you own at least one GeoQuote Premium site. We will have hands-on training on how to optimally configure these sites and if you don't own one, well, you get the point.

August Affiliate Spotlight: John Shepler
John Shepler is our featured agent for August. John, hailing from Rockford Illinois, has been an active and productive member of our affiliate community for almost 10 years. During that time John has done a terrific job of keeping a pulse on which products are hot and staying ahead of the "curve". In 2003 John refocused his efforts on Telarus (commercial telecom), creating a series of T1, DS3, Ethernet, and MPLS sites that generated leads that have been closed by Telarus' group of full-time agents. That consistent effort over the years has made John one of our most successful agents in terms of residual monthly earnings. John has also taken advantage of the new Premium Site and is building an empire of commercial telecom-focused web sites in addition to the group he's already created (ex: and Congratulations John - keep up the great work!

With sales on the rise, new Premium sites now LIVE, and with our monthly batch of three training calls for your enlightenment, we are now on our way to the top. There is not a day that goes by that we are not improving the Commission River program. We expect many more people will begin to enjoy the fruits of success as they educate themselves and leverage the tools and products that we have provided. Will you be one of them $PERS_NAME? The future is yours - we'll help you get there.

As always, please feel free to tell us what you think, tell us what products you would like to see, and tell us how we can improve. We're here to serve you and to help you achieve the financial independence you deserve.

Happy Selling!
