How The Fact That You Are In [imwb_cgt_countryName] Can Triple The Effectiveness Of This Post!

So what does the fact that you are in [imwb_cgt_countryName] have to do with anything?

I’m using a technology called geo targeting to automatically insert your country above. Geo targeting has been very popular tool for years.

If you have ever visited a web site that promotes dating offers, you will have noticed a common thread among all of them

They are all using Geo Targeting – meaning you see your own City, State & Country in their ads.

Isn’t it funny how all those attractive single men and women in their promo material all happen to live in the same city as you? Even if you’re in the sticks with 100 miles to your nearest neighbor LOL

It’s obviously fake – and you’d think it wouldn’t work for them.

But one thing we’ve learned from spying on these guys… They don’t do anything by accident!

We have done some dating promotions in the past, and I can tell you with 100% certainty that using Geo Targeting in your ads and blog post increases the response rates at least 3x

And when a billion dollar online industry does something (and keeps doing it) – we sit up straight and start listening!

However, geo targeting is not just for dating offers, it works well in any niche! But it has previously been reserved for the big companies with huge budgets.

Until now… Because with the release of our Covert Geo Targeter plugin – everyone can now easily use geo targeting on their WordPress blogs.

It’s a super simple to use (and install) WP plugin – and when you have it on your blogs you can simply add short codes anywhere on your blog to insert your visitors details – like…

Country: [imwb_cgt_countryName]
City: [imwb_cgt_cityName]
Region/State: [imwb_cgt_regionName]
Country Code: [imwb_cgt_countryCode]

Note that these may not be 100% accurate for you (but they should be very close) … and the Covert Geo Targeter plugin is intelligent and gets more accurate the more it’s used.

You can insert these short codes anywhere you want on your blog, including…

  • Post and Page titles
  • Custom Menus
  • Widgets & Widget Titles
  • Post and Page text
  • Other plugins
  • Directly into the code of your theme

And it will of course work inside our other WP themes and plugins such as Covert Messenger and Covert Action Bar.

And it works for a very simple reason…

People buy from people they know, like and trust

And while this won’t make them “know” you, it will make them like and trust you…

Because using their geo location on your blog, automatically makes you, your content and your offers seem much more relevant and closer to your customers.

And we all like feeling important – and seeing a website that appears to be built specifically for people in our town, state or country gives us a fussy feeling (whether we like it or not)

Bottom line… Using geo targeting will increase the effectiveness of your blogs and with Covert Geo Targeter it’s super easy to deploy this powerful strategy on your blogs. Click on the banner below to learn more about what this amazing plugin can do for you today!


The #1 Secret Tool The Pro Bloggers Use

What is the number one secret tool that almost all pro bloggers and developers use?

It’s not a plugin… it’s not a theme… and it’s not some fancy curation software either.

What they all have in common is that they run WordPress on a local server for testing and backup purposes. Here at IM Wealth Builders we have been doing the same for years – in fact every single plugin and theme we have ever built, has been developed on localhost first.

But using localhost is not just for developers – it’s something all WordPress bloggers can benefit from doing.

Essentially using your own development server means running a fully functional version of WordPress on your own computer – offline (ie. not published/live on the internet).

There are a number of very good reasons for doing this…

  • Testing if new themes and plugins work with your current setup before messing up your live blogs.
  • Testing changes you would like to make in your theme before messing with the files on your real blogs
  • Testing stuff on localhost is super fast compared to live blogs
  • It’s great if you are a developer building plugins and themes (or want to check work your outsourcers have done).’
  • Testing new WordPress, theme and plugin updates before you add them to your site
  • Quickly fixing bugs and problems on your live blogs
  • And much more… you can read more about it here

The problem is that running WordPress on a local server is a very difficult and time consuming thing to set up – previously it has been reserved for the real tech heads and developers.

But our very good friend Matt Garrett has just released a great product called WP Simulator

It shows you step-by-step how you can start using localhost for WordPress today and all the ways you can benefit from it – and it does so using free resources.

It’s geared to help you transform the way you build, test and repair WordPress sites faster than normally possible. If like me you find WordPress development slow then you should take a look this.

Matt Garrett, a pro blogger of some 10 years & his techies have found an easy way to run a rapid test version of WordPress on any PC or MAC. The traditional way of doing this involves editing complex server files and following multi-step install procedures…

Matt doesn’t release many products, the last 3 have all been top sellers – I have no doubt this one will be too.

It’s one of those products that won’t immediately put dollars in your pocket but it’s one you’ll wish you knew about years earlier as it will make your life a whole lot easier…

We highly recommend WP Simulator – so click on the banner below to have a look and grab a copy for yourself, before the price goes up.

The Best Way To Use Youtube With WordPress

Video is becoming increasingly important online. With broadband speeds going up all around the world more and more people are preferring video as their content format of choice – Both for recreational and educational use.

Just take a look at these jaw dropping stats from Youtube…

This was the reason why we developed our Covert Video Press theme – and the popularity of video is reflected in the fact that it’s still our all time best seller among all our WordPress Themes & Plugins.

You could upload videos to Youtube as part of your marketing strategy (and you should).

But there are some problems…

  • You have to create your own videos – which takes a lot of time and quite frankly can be a huge pain in the butt.
  • You are competing with the other 800,000 videos uploaded the same day as your video – and if you don’t have your own traffic to bring to the mix you are going to be one of the many videos stuck on 10 views (9 of them your own).
  • Every video you upload is just building up Youtube/Google’s content portfolio and real estate – and the end of the day they are the ones profiting from your hard work.
  • If you’re lucky (and that is a big “if”), you might get invited to their partner program so you can earn a few pennies from Adsense.

Now I’m not knocking Youtube as a marketing platform – it has it’s uses

But there is a better way!

A way to turn the tables and make Youtube and Google do the hard work for you – while you stay in control and reap all the benefits!

So even though it does not make sense to try and compete directly with Youtube

Making your site look, feel and work like Youtube and feeding off all their content does make a lot of sense!

As you already know we do most of our stuff on WordPress – so we naturally set out to create a theme that would do just that…

  • Mimic Youtube and other big video sites, and serve up videos in the highly addictive tube format, well known and loved by billions of people around the world.
  • Legally piggy back of other people’s work and let you build huge video sites without ever creating a single video yourself.
  • Stay in complete control over what content is being showed on your site – and more importantly over the ads… with you pocketing 100% of the revenue instead of sharing the scraps from the big Google table.

And after 3 months of hard work and endless testing – the result was our Covert Video Press theme.

We tested it on our own sites and the results where through the roof!

And now you can cash in on the video craze too – just click the banner below to see everything Covert Video Press can do for you…

What 90% Don’t Know About WordPress (But Should Know)

As you know we develop and market a lot of cool WordPress plugins & themes. With such a portfolio of WordPress products we of course also answer a lot of support questions daily – and in doing so we discovered an interesting trend…

The majority of the support questions we receive are not actually about our products themselves, rather they are about WordPress is general.

I guess is makes sense – WordPress is massively popular with over 64 millions blogs using the software. It’s free. it’s fairly easy to use and install and the fact that you can use 3rd party plugins and themes makes it insanely flexible.

This means that virtually anyone trying to start an internet business is going to use WP somewhere in their setup. Resulting in a lot of newcomers to WordPress daily and of course some of those find their way to our WordPress plugins & themes too.

Now we are obviously happy to help and answer any support questions we get!

But we also believe that our customers will be much more successful using our products if they know their way around the basic blogging system that powers them.

And in our opinion the best way of learning how to master WordPress is to watch over the shoulders of someone actually doing it, while explaining it all step by step.
