I have always been someone that believes in results over hype and speculation. My biggest issue with many of the tools and systems that I see advertised online is that they are very largely based on hype and speculating how much you can make without really showing you any real results. Even when you do see reviews that show results, you still have to realize that there may be some use of creative accounting going on or even just outright fabrication. My policy has always been to try things for myself and judge them based on the results that I get.
That was the approach I took when I came across the Submission Works lead and traffic generation system. I was pretty quickly sold on their sales page, simply because there wasn’t a lot of hype to be seen. There were no pictures of a guy sunning himself on a beach with his luxury yacht moored off in the distance. What the sales page told me was what the program delivered and what I could reasonably expect to see if I decided to sign up. Since I realized that any money I have made over the years has come because of the effort I put in, I liked the idea that I might finally get a little help from somewhere else.
Before I could get to the results, I had to take some time to choose the programs I wanted to promote and then plug them into the Submission Works system. In order to get an idea of just how good the program would be, I opted to go with 3 programs that were being pretty heavily advertised online, 3 that were not quite so popular, and 1 that I had created myself, which was selling a collection of e-books for a very reasonable price. That last website was relatively new and was struggling to get any kind of traction. That was the one that I thought would be the most important in my test run.
What ended up being very surprising to me was that all 7 sites ended up doing very well in a very short period of time. The three heavily promoted links all saw a very nice boost in traffic, as well as a definite increase in the conversion rate after being added into the SW software. The 3 lesser known sites performed at a slightly better rate as far as conversions went, with one in particular seeing a real boost. I had just added a new landing page to that particular program, and I believe that helped turn the leads from SW into sales.
The site that I created on my own was the real success story of the lot, though, if truth be told. I went from virtually zero traffic and sales on that page to a major influx of traffic and sales in less than a week. The offerings there are low-priced, which helps, but SW gave it the boost that it so desperately needed. My search for results is now complete and I am happy to report that Submission Works is one site that actually delivers. That said, I plan to continue my membership long into the foreseeable future.
