An affiliate marketing program is simply another name for a online referral program, associate program, or partnership program.

In the online world, an affiliate program allows you to create and manage a large group of affiliates with relative ease.

There are a number of variables you will need to consider, but we will discuss some of the major benefits and provide you with an overview of why you might want to add an affiliate element to your marketing.

Ryan, First off I apologize for asking this question on this post like this. Im new to social media, I've been posting to communities things of interest or funny, but the last few posts have been marked as spam, I think, for they got no veiws or activity. I don't reshare same post, only afew post per day, and they aren't spam. A guy who said he's a community mod, told me algorithms marked me, and "taint" will go away in time. I see true spam all the time, repeatedly and they don't get blocked, why me?
If you have time, could you go to my profile posts, and see if im doing something wrong, and let me know. Any advice would be much appreciated. Randy

Insurance Digital Marketing
How to stand out and attract the modern insurance consumer.

Insurance digital marketing is about telling the human side of your agency story.

The modern insurance consumer is bombarded by insurance advertisements every day. From GEICO, State Farm, to All State, the messaging is inescapable.

Do you believe insurance jargon, packaged in clever digital marketing tactics, will win you business over the long term?

Want to create a better online customer experience?
Here is a simple website tool, +SumoMe, which help dramatically improve how you view what customer do on your website.

I am constantly running test on +Agency Nation to improve how visitors interact with the website. 

Every two weeks I open up SumoMe and review the click tracking and heat tools to get a better idea of what is happening on the site.

This post is a quick rundown of recent review I did and conclusions I made from the results.

Always be testing.

Improving the Customer Experience Using +SumoMe
Here is a quick case study on the +Agency Nation articles page.

I am NOT a website design expert so (free) tools like SumoMe provide extremely value insight into what my visitors are doing.

More importantly this tool (and other heat map tools) show you what your visitors find and take action on.

Here are a few conclusions I made after breaking down recent campaign results.

Excited to hear +Mitch Joel and +Joey Giangola chat...

Do Your Subtle Skills Creative Obvious Success? 

I bet there's something that you're a little weird about and by weird I mean fanatic, that has seeped its way into your "professional persona."

If it's one thing I love about +Mitch Joel, as my man crush reaches dangerous levels (I'm going to ask +Ryan Hanley if I can be VP of the fan club), it's his willingness to consider influence from unlikely places AND openly try to help you connect the dots.

That's what he delivers in his rant to lead into today's show. His unlikely influence is stand-up comedy and I have never fully agreed more with anything, ever.

#BusinessSkills   #Comedy   #Insight   #Awareness  
Have you noticed the impact your subtle skills have made on your overall success? Are you giving them the credit they deserve? This week’s guest rant is delivered by Mitch Joel who challenges you to pay more attention to the small tendencies and abilities you’ve picked up along the way. Mitch found himself in a conversation …

+Mitch Joel is a rock star. +Randy Carroll booked him to speak at our broker convention and run a seminar on social media back in 2010. I Learned so much from him. His books control alt delete and six pixel of separations are must reads and he crushes is weekly podcasts. He is a true Canadian rock star of social media and thought leader . Good choice +Ryan Hanley and +Joey Giangola.

Are building trust or simply driving traffic?

Here are just a few of the topics we discuss:

 - We must great excellent content,
 - Our content must relate to the human,
 - and so much more…

Hey Ryan, there may be a technical issue with the feed or the servers. I just tried to listen to it on both the Web site and Stitcher. Both times, the episode restarted itself after I'd listened to several minutes and wouldn't let me fast forward back to where I had been. Frustrating.

How do you use customer stories in your marketing?
Its the stories that set your business apart.

Customer stories certainly can be testimonials, but in this case I'm interested in how people go long-form on customer stories...

Do you use video? Audio?

Do you get the customers involved?

Content containing your customers can be incredibly powerful.

How do you leverage customers in your content marketing?

How to Use Customer Stories to Stand Out
Your agency has stories (good and bad), its time to put those stories to work.

Storytelling is one of the most powerful sales tools agents posses. Prospects want to hear about the realities of working with you, and telling true stories is the most impactful way to show what sets you apart from the agency down the street.

Great thought provoking post +Ryan Hanley​! With over 10 years in the business I have plenty of stories to tell. Taking it a step further and having clients say it in a video would be extremely powerful. Thank you!
