Banners Broker Strategy I’m going to reveal some strategies and tips which will help you in your Banners Broker business. There are many strategies online but not all of them are based on sound knowledge or principles. Some even break the Banners Broker terms and conditions, which could lead to termination of your account. This strategy guide is designed to give you strategies which have been handed down to me by my sponsor and his sponsor, who is one of the managers at Banners Broker. My sponsor and I are both making thousands of dollars (he is making more than me as he has been at it longer) and so I know his strategy works. If you haven’t registered with Banners Broker, sign up here for free. You won’t understand anything until you at least start looking around inside the back office. Sign up is free so you have nothing to lose. These strategies are not common and you won’t find every p erson using them. Rest assured, these tips and tricks will make you more money than any regular ebook bonus or software could. The information here has been tested thoroughly and will therefore save you a lot of time and money! Throughout your time with Banners Broker I would suggest you refer back to this strategy guide to ensure you are making the most money in the best way possible. Ok, let’s get into it. By this stage, you should be familiar with the mechanics of Banners Broker. You should have read my lesson structure prior to coming here. If you haven’t read that yet, start at the Banners Broker breakdown section and return here after you have more or less understood all the lessons (it’s not the easiest thing to understand so I don’t expect you to fully understand how everything works by the time you purchase your first package). When you start with Banners Broker, the first step (after funding your eWallet) is to buy a package. The package you buy initially is quite important as it can set the standard for your on-going business. As you may have deduced, buying a black package is the obvious thing to do if you have the money as it yields the most profit. However, please note that when buying a red or a black, you’d have to wait many months to see a profit from the re d/black panel itself, even though the profit is higher. So for this reason, to balance the profit factor and the time factor, a green package is what I would recommended. It combines a decent profit and a decent wait time in comparison to the red and black. However, having said that, if you are able to wait I would recommend a red or a black package. The reason for this is the fact that you get 2 complimentary panels with your package purchase. You only get these complimentary panels when you start out and at no other time. So if you are getting something for free, would you want those free items to be of a low value or a higher value? Higher value of course! So it makes sense to buy the green panel when starting out (as it produces nice profits in a decent amount of time). You only have a 3 week window of opportunity to upgrade your package from when you first bought it. So if you have already bought a lower package, upgrade it ASAP to the highest you can afford. Remember, even if you buy a black package, you don’t have to wait for the full term before it starts paying out. All the lower colored panels included within the package will start to pay out quicker according to their own time- frames. It’s only the black which will take the most time (by which time you would have made enough from the lower panels). If you can afford it, buy a green package followed by a red panel or a red package followed by a black panel. These will kick-start your earnings from the outset. In some countries, you can’t buy a high colored package right away due to tax laws (don’t ask me). So in this case, you can buy a lower colored package and then upgrade it within 3 weeks. In summary, don’t buy anything less than a green package. If you can’t afford it, save up and then buy it. If you have no other choice but to buy a blue then go for it but the profits will be a lot lower. If you have bought a package and one week later, it’s still si tting there not making any money, then this means you have forgotten to redeem the package. Redeem Package Immediately after buying your package, go to Manage Inventory >> View Packages Purchased and redeem your panel. This will activate it and money will start to flow in. Whatever you do, don’t buy more than one package. You can only redeem one. The only reason they allow you to buy more than one is if you need to transfer a package to someone else. In this case, you can buy extra and transfer them to so meone who can’t make payment for whatever reason. Remember, in this business, time is money so you need to do things ASAP. Forgetting to redeem a package will only cost you time (and potential money). Once you have redeemed your package, go to Manage Inventory >> View Panels and click on each of the colored tabs to cycle through all the panels you have. On each panel page, click on the Get Impressions button to collect all your impressions into your impression bank, which you can then use for advertising your own website or affiliate website. You can check how many impressions you have collected by going to Campaigns >> Impression Bank. If you had bought the red package you should see 121,000 impressions sitting in your bank, waiting for you to use them on your own sites. If you bought the green package, you would see 41,000 impressions in your impression bank. This includes 1000 complimentary impressions (you received for joining BB). Re-Purchase Settings The next step is to make sure that the re-purchase settings on all of your panels are set to 100%. You have two choices – 50% and 100%. First, here is what you should do. On the first complimentary cycle (the cycle which starts after you redeem the package), you will see Comp 1 in the small box, in the middle of the panel. When you see this, set the panel to 100%. After the panel completes, it will create 2 additional panels. Both of these panels will show Comp 2 in the small box. When you see this, set the re-purchase setting to 50% on these 2 panels. After this, any additional panel you buy, keep it set to 50%. Now, I’ll explain why you should do it this way. If Banners Broker is giving you 2 complimentary cycles, you should take maximum advantage of them. When the first cycle completes, you can choose to get two free panels for your second cycle or just one free panel for your second cycle (Comp 2). Which would you rather go for? By keeping the setting to 100%, Banners Broker will give you TWO free complimentary panels for your second cycle. Remember, in addition to this, these panels don’t have to be qualified since they are complimentary. So the aim here is to get as many complimentary panels as possible while they are dishing them out. If you were to keep the setting to 50% when starting out, you would only get one complimentary panel on your second cycle while the rest of the money is deposited in your eWallet account (ready for liquidation). At this stage don’t think about withdrawing the money, keep your money in the system and use the 100% setting to get as many complimentary panels as possible. This will pay off in the long term. Remember this rule. When it says Comp 1, keep it set to 100% at all times. Of course, once you have received your 2 additional panels on the second cycle (which is when you will see Comp 2 on the panel), then you can set it to 50% . Since all panel purchases other than the ones you receive in your initial package won’t have any complimentary panels on their first or second cycle, you don’t have to leave it at 100%. You won’t be receiving anyt hing for free. But by leaving it at 50% from there on, you will be building your business while withdrawing money at the same time. If you have no need for earning while you build up your business, then you can leave the setting on 100% and make your money build up faster because you get 2 additional panels as each cycle completes. However, if you’re the type of person who likes to see physical results (money in hand), then leave the setting at 50%. You’ll be able to withdraw money every so often as panels complete. This is the recommended setting (Comp 2 and onwards, and for all new panel purchases). Now that you have bought your package and collected your impressions and set the re- purchase settings, you can relax a bit. The important parts are done. Learn At this time, you should go through all the tutorials which you can access through the back office menu. Almost all the menu options have a Tutorial sub-option. Try and get a complete understanding of how things work. From the Dashboard menu option, you will find recorded webinars and also scheduled future webinars. Make sure you go through 2-3 presentations and many training sessions. All-in-all, watch the tutorials and recorded webinars for presentation and training and also attend scheduled webinars online. This will give you a decent grounding into the business. This is the time to learn so take full advantage of your time. Remember, there’s not much to do in this business other than keeping an eye on your panels and making decisions. So the rest of the time can be spent learning the business and informing others (if you want to) for sales credits. If at any time you have a problem with the site, you can submit a ticket through the Help menu option. Their response time depends on how loaded they are but I believe they will be employing several new customer service representatives soon. Panel Completion Time The average time for panels to complete is shown here: Yellow: 15 – 25 days Purple: 4 – 6 weeks Blue: 8 – 10 weeks Green: 3 – 4 months Red: 5 – 6 months Black: 7 – 8 months The time could vary quite a bit so don’t bank on the timelin es I have given here. But you should check your panels around the estimated completion time and be ready to set your re- purchase setting to 50% (after you get the 2 additional panels). You will also need to collect the impressions from those new panels and also qualify those that need qualifying (after Comp 2) with traffic packs and sales credits. The Procedure (Non-Complimentary Panels) When you buy a new panel, or you re-purchase a new panel automatically as a previous one completes, you need to do several things. 1. Click the Lock button. This is to tell Banners Broker that you won’t be transferring the panel to anyone else. As you do this, 2 things will happen. First, whoever referred you to Banners Broker, will receive sales credits. Secondly, the Get Impressions button will be active and you will be able to collect your impressions into your impression bank. 2. Use the Get Impressions button to collect your impressions and then check your impression bank. 3. Set the re-purchase setting to 50% for the reasons explained above (for all panels comp 2 and onwards). 4. Qualify the panel. For all non-complimentary panels, you will see the box on the right of the panel say “Traffic Required“. This means that you now need to use your t raffic packs or sales credits to qualify the panel. If you have enough traffic hits in your account, click on this box and it will qualify the panel and the words will change to “Panel Qualified“. To recap on qualifying a panel: You get 2 complimentary panels after your first complimentary panel completes (if set to 100%). These complimentary panels do not need to be qualified and hence require no traffic hits. After these additional complimentary panels have completed their cycle (meaning that Comp 2 has finished), you will need to qualify all future panels from that point on, whether they be automatic re-purchases due to panel completion or a brand new panel purchase. All purchases after the 2 complimentary cycles will require panel qualification, and therefore traffic hits. So unless you see Comp 1 or Comp 2 on your panels, you will need to qualify the panel to get it started. To qualify a panel, you need traffic loaded in your account. To load traffic into your account, you can do that through sales credits (referring people to BB) or by buying traffic packs. Traffic Packs Most people don’t like to promote BB and therefore, opt to buy traffic packs in order to qualify their panels. Traffic packs cost $50 each. To purchase a traffic pack, go to Purchase >> Purchase Traffic Packs. Go ahead and buy just one at this stage. This will load 100,000 traffic hits into your account (which includes 50,000 bonus hits). Now go and see which panels you have that need qualifying. Start qualifying as many panels as you can with the amount of traffic hits you have available. For instance, you may have bought 2 yellow panels, 2 purple panels and 1 blue panel, all of which need qualifying. 2 yellows = 2 x 5000 = 10,000 hits required to qualify both panels 2 purples = 2 x 15,000 = 30,000 hits required to qualify both panels 1 Blue = 1 x 45,000 = 45,000 hits required to qualify this panel 10,000 + 30,000 + 45,000 = 85,000 Traffic Hits. To qualify all these panels, you need a total of 85,000 traffic hits. With your traffic pack purchase, you already have 100,000 hits sitting in your account and so you can comfortably qualify all these panels. But if you had say another green panel, then you would either have to buy another traffic pack or wait until the next month to buy another traffic pack without being upgraded to a premium membership. To find out how much traffic you need to qualify a certain panel, just look at the box on the right side of the panel. It will inform you of the amount of traffic hits you require to qualify that panel. If your traffic hits run out (finish) after you have applied your traffic pack hits (that were loaded into your account) to your panels, you will need to buy more traffic hits. If you choose to buy another traffic pack within 30 days of buying the first traffic pack, you will be upgraded to the premium membership, which means you pay $100/month as part of your membership fee instead of just $15 as a standard member. If you can wait for 30 days from when you bought the first traffic pack, then do so and buy the next traffic pack at that time. This way, you’ll avoid upg rading to the premium membership unnecessarily but the drawback is, you will lose time. Eventually, you’ll need to buy more than one traffic pack within a 30 day period. If you feel that you must have two or more traffic packs, then go ahead and buy them. You will be upgraded to the premium membership and you will be committed to buying two packs per month from that date onwards. As a premium member, there are no limits to the number of traffic packs you can buy but remember you will be committed to that number every month. Make sure you have the funds for that available in your eWallet before you take this step. In any case, don’t upgrade until you have passed the second complimentary cycle. We’ll discuss this more in d etail later. Campaigns and Ad Impressions You’ve bought ad impressions as part of your package. So m ake use of it by creating a campaign within Banners Broker and sending the traffic to your own website. If you don’t ha ve a website, sign up as an affiliate at clickbank. Then you can send the traffic to someone else’s site and get paid if a visitor buys something. The other option is to send the traffic to your Banners Broker affiliate link. In my opinion, it’s not worth doing that as I don’t think many people will s ign up just by looking at the Banners Broker home page. It’s not user friendly. It would be better if you could make a separate website explaining the basics of the Banners Broker system. This type of site will eventually save you money as people start to sign up with Banners Broker through your affiliate link on your site. This will earn you sales credits, thereby allowing you to qualify panels without relying on buying traffic packs. Remember, you need two referrals to the same colored panel to be able to qualify a panel of the same color in your account. So if your customer bought and qualified 2 red panels, you can qualify one red panel. Your traffic bank will break down the amount of traffic you have available for each panel. You can then check to see if you have enough to qualify any of your panels. If you have qualified all your panels and still have money in your eWallet account, you can buy more panels to make more money, or you can liquidate (withdraw) the money into your bank account. Growing Fast Strategy There are a number of variables you need to consider and so the resulting strategy boils down to individual circumstance. You need to consider how many panels you have and how much money you have available in your eWallet account. You also need to consider if you will be promoting the business and gaining referrals or if you’re going to stick to buying traffic packs. If you decide to promote Banners Broker, then you should execute these actions as part of your strategy... Active Promoter Strategy Only buy 20% (max) of the traffic needed (by buying traffic packs) to qualify panels. Since the majority of your panel qualifications will be done through sales credits, you don’t need to buy as much traffic. So, only buy 20% of what you need. For example, if you have many panels which you need to qualify, add up all the traffic hits required to qualify all of them. Let’s say this figure is 550,0 00 traffic hits. 20% of 550,000 is 110,000. Since each traffic pack consists of 100,000 traffic hits, you will need to buy 2 traffic packs. However, in this case, I would still only buy one, as the figure is close to 100,000. Remember, this is the strategy to use if you plan on getting lots of sales credits. But most people don’t like to promote. What should these people do? Non-Promoter Strategy The great thing about Banners Broker is you don’t need to promote anything to make money. If this is the type of person you are, then use the following s trategy... You need to be conservative when buying traffic packs. You can’t afford to spend too much on them because you need to wait until your panels pay you so you can finance them. You should only buy traffic packs that you can afford and this m eans that you won’t be able to qualify all your panels, every time. Yes, it’s the cold hard truth, but you will need to do a lot of waiting with this strategy. You may need to qualify some of your panels and then wait until the following month to buy another traffic pack so you can qualify some more. Eventually, as your business grows, you will be holding something as typical as say 3 green panels. Each green panel requires 135,000 hits to qualify. If you were to wait for one traffic pack each month so you could qualify all these panels (amongst some lower colored panels), you would be waiting forever. At this stage, you would need to upgrade to a premium membership. Upgrading at this stage would actually be an ad vantage for you. You’re not restricted to how many traffic packs you buy but you still need to consider the monthly commitment. If you buy say 3 traffic packs within any 30 day period (even as a premium member), you will have to commit to buying 3 traffic packs every month from there onwards. If you decide to cancel (because you found it too much or burdensome), you will be locked out from buying further traffic packs for 6 months. So as you can see, there is a line between having lots of panels, which require you to upgrade + take advantage of the upgrade and having fewer panels while sticking to the standard membership. Let’s take a scenario. Initially you bought the green package. As the package completed, you found that your eWallet was loaded with ‘green revenue’. You used that mon ey to buy more panels and you built your business further. Sometime later, after your repurchases and additional standalone purchases, let’s say you now have a total of 3 green panels, 3 blue panels, 3 purple panels and 3 yellow panels. You also have say, $800 in your eWallet. Now you need to qualify all these panels. Here is a reminder as to how many traffic hits are required to qualify each panel. ONE YELLOW PANEL REQUIRES - 5,000 HITS TO QUALIFY ONE PURPLE PANEL REQUIRES - 15,000 HITS TO QUALIFY ONE BLUE PANEL REQUIRES - 45,000 HITS TO QUALIFY ONE GREEN PANEL REQUIRES - 135,000 HITS TO QUALIFY ONE RED PANEL REQUIRES - 405,000 HITS TO QUALIFY ONE BLACK PANEL REQUIRES - 1,250,000 HITS TO QUALIFY If you total all the unqualified panels you have in your acco unt, you’ll realize that you need a total of 600,000 traffic hits to get those panels going. You could use the $800 in your eWallet to buy 6 traffic packs for $300 and qualify all of them but there is good and bad in that. It would be good that you used your profits to buy traffic packs instead of funding your account with additional money from your pocket. But if you used all the money in the eWallet to buy 6 traffic packs, you would have made a massive mistake. Never ever overspend your eWallet money on traffic packs. Even though you needed all those traffic packs, it’s still not a good idea to buy the full amount. Remember, you will have to commit to at least that amount from there onwards. Here is a rule and formula you should remember when buying traffic packs. Only buy 25% of the traffic you need to qualify. So in the above example where you need 600,000 traffic hits to qualify all your panels, only buy 25% of that. This means you need to purchase: 600,000 x 25% = 150,000 traffic hits. This = 2 traffic packs which will give you 200,000 traffic hits for $100. When you do it this way, you will have to stagger your panel qualifications. Let’s take another scenario. You have 5 green panels in your account which need to be qualified. 5 x 135,000 required traffic hits = 675,000 hits needed to qualify all of them. You need to buy 25% of the traffic required (168,750 hits) and so you spend $100 buying 2 traffic packs. Look at what you have just done. Originally, one of your panels completed while its setting was set to 50%. This means, that upon completion, 50% went towards purchasing a new panel while the other 50% was left in your eWallet account. From that portion, you took $100 and spent that on traffic and you left the remainder in your account for possible membership fees or further panel purchases. At the end of this strategy page, you’ll find some math whic h will show you how much profit you can expect from buying panels after taking into consideration the cost of traffic packs. Forward Planning Think about when you should upgrade to a premium membership. Remember the scenario I wrote about above. Don’t upgrade p rematurely and don’t hold out for too long. It can hurt in both situations. Once you see the need, then upgrade at the right time by buying an additional traffic pack. But only do that according to the 25% rule for non- promoters and the 20% rule for active promoters. By sticking to this rule, you will maintain a steady growth without injecting additional capital into the business. The only way to make a loss with BB is if you buy too much traffic. One other way to work out the max number of traffic packs you should buy is by adding up all the required traffic hits to qualify all your panels and then divide that by 12 months. So, if all your unqualified panels in total require 3,600,00 to qualify, then you need to buy 3 traffic packs per month max. 3,600,000 / 12 = 300,000 = 3 traffic packs. Don’t let your zeal prompt you to overbuy the traffic packs. Maintain a cool head about your business activities with the aid of a spreadsheet. If you do intend to add additional funds to grow your business quicker, then you can make the rules as you go along because your money will control how much you make. But most people like to use their profits to fund their ongoing business. If this is how you wish to play it, make sure you stick to the limits above for buying traffic packs. Sometimes, buying too much can be overwhelming for a business and can ruin it. It’s like trying to push an apple through a bottleneck. You must always keep some money in your eWallet. Don’t k eep withdrawing everything. You need to prepare for your monthly membership fees plus your monthly traffic pack purchases. Both of these fees are monthly commitments so y ou just can’t afford to keep your eWallet empty. To keep track of everything, use a spreadsheet. Note down every time your panels mature and the dates you need to buy your traffic packs etc... With this type of spreadsheet, you can estimate when you will get paid and how much after deducting all costs. It may help you plan ahead. By sticking to these rules, you will give yourself a 20% pay-raise every 6 months which is far better than any job will give you. Traffic Boosters As you know, traffic boosters will boost up your panel completion time by 20%. You can only use them on non-complimentary panels, when you see the Traffic Booster sign in the middle of the panel. It will tell you how many boosters you need to purchase in order to boost that panel. Do not apply boosters to any panel below Green. It will be a waste of money. Only apply them on Green, Red or Black. For a standard member, each booster costs $8. For a premium member, each booster costs $5. So, if you’re planning on applying a booster to a green pane l, you’ll have to pay $64 as a standard member or $40 as a premium member. You can see that premium members will save a lot of money in the long run, but still, only upgrade when you absolutely must or if you have 3 greens (or more). Just like when buying traffic packs, limit your booster buying to 20% of the number of panels you need boosted. So if you have 4 green panels that need to be boosted, 20% of 4 is less than 1. So just buy one traffic booster. When applying a booster, do it as soon as you have qualifie d a panel. Don’t wait until its half way through its cycle. You’ll be wasting its value. Roll Up If you have 3 panels of the same color, you can elect to roll them up to the next highest color. So if you have 3 yellow panels, you can swap all of them for one purple panel. During your early days, this is not advisable as it will take longer to make money. Yes, once you have hundreds of panels and you’re being pai d almost every week/day, then that is the time when you ca n afford to roll up as the time factor won’t matter as much. There is one rule you should be aware of! If you try and qualify 6 panels or more of the same color within 24 hours, Banners Broker will roll all 3 of them up to the next color. So if you qualify 6 blues wi thin 24 hours, you’ll end up with 2 greens. To avoid this from happening, only qualify 5 panels at a time (of the same color) within a 24 hour period. You can do another 5 the next day and so on... It may take a little longer to qualify your panels (extra day) but you’ll make money faster. In summary, don’t roll any panels up until you have lots of panels all working away. At that stage, you can roll up as many as you need, as time won’t have much of a bearing. Dos and Don’ts Do: 1. Always stick to the BB terms and conditions otherwise you could be kicked out of the business. Read the rules on their website. 2. Stay abreast of the latest developments by watching the weekly webinars. It may affect you immediately. 3. Remember to set your re-purchase settings to 50% as your 2nd complimentary cycle starts. 4. If you can, set up a new email address for your Banners Broker business to keep it separate from your personal email address. You don’t w ant to mix the two. You can change your BB registered email in your back office. 5. Intend to increase your business by 20% every quarter by buying more traffic packs or by obtaining more referrals or by purchasing new panels. After your initial package purchase, it will be panel purchases all the way from there onwards. Don’ts 1. Never buy more than 25% of the traffic required. If you need 20 traffic packs, then only buy 5. In fact, limit it to 20% if you can. 2. Never qualify more than 5 panels of the same color within a 24 hour period until you have scores of panels and time does not affect you. Rule to Remember Buying traffic packs is a monthly subscription commitment. Don’t buy so many that you don’t have enough funds the following month. If this happens, you will lose yo ur business so be very careful how you manage this. In addition to this, you need to factor in your monthly membership fee ($15 or $100). Money Management Example Let’s assume you’ve been wheeling and dealing and you curr ently have $1200 sitting in your eWallet. You also have 7 green panels which need to be qualified. 7 green panels = 7 x 135,000 hits = 945,000 hits required for qualification of all panels. So instead of going out and buying 10 traffic packs to qualify them all in one fell-swoop, you can stagger it. Use the 25% rule to figure out how many traffic packs to buy. 25% of 945,000 = 236,250. So go ahead and buy 3 traffic packs (300,000 hits) but only qualify 2 green panels with those hits. With the remaining hits, look at the smaller panels which are about to mature and use those hits to qualify them. The following month, do the same with another 2 green panels. Eventually, as your business grows, you’ll be able to qualify the higher panels in one go, and you’ll continue to qualify the l ower panels with remaining hits from a traffic pack purchase. However, when looking at what other panels you should be qualifying, you need to consider the traffic allowance. Remember, allowance figures show you how much you can qualify of a given color. In the example above, look at the purple panel allowance figure. It shows I can qualify a maximum of 3 purple panels because each purple panel requires 15,000 hits, and I only have 45,000 to play with in my allowance. To increase the allowance for any color, simply buy the next highest panel above that color. So in this case, I should buy a blue panel. Once I do that, I will get 2 x the qualification figure, for the panel below. So, if I buy a blue panel, I will get 15,000 X 2 = 30,000 and that will be added to my purple allowance. This is what I must consider when selecting which smaller panels to qualify with my remaining traffic hits. Above, you can see that I also need to bring up the green allowance and so I must buy and qualify a red. But this will be done with the majority of my traffic pack hits rather than using the remaining left over hits. It has to be considered separately. When you buy a black panel and then qualify it, it won’t affect your allowa nce. The black panel allowance is unlimited. Hopefully, one day, you’ll have all black panels, each one pa ying out every day. That’s when you will be $$$$$$$$ richer. Profit Per Panel Your complimentary panels will provide the most profit since they don’t need to be qualified. For every panel you buy after that, i.e., during the course of your business, you will turn a profit after the 2nd cycle. Not after the first cycle. This is due to having to spend money on traffic packs initially. Of course, if you are qualifying your panels in one of the other 2 ways (sales credits or organic traffic), then you can turn a profit on every cycle (as suming you’re not spending any money on those actions). So how did I work out that you only make a profit after the 2nd cycle (if you use traffic packs)? If you are interested in the math, try and follow my explanation here. I’ll use + to indicate money coming to you and a - to indicate money you are shelling out. We’ll take a red panel as an example. Let’s say you buy a red panel and you have the re-purchase setting set at 50%. You shelled out $810 for it. -$810 To qualify it, you need 405,000 traffic hits, which will cost you just over 4 traffic packs. The total price for this is -$202.50 So far you have shelled out $810 and $202.50 = -$1012.50 just to get going. When the first cycle completes, $810 will be deposited into your eWallet account as your profit: +$810 Taking everything into account at this stage, you shelled out -$1012.50 and you made +$810. This includes a total loss of -$202.50 after the first cycle. So far, the summary of what just happened is, you put $810 in and you got $810 out thereby cancelling each other. But you also paid some money for the traffic pack and so you lost out by that much. Now let’s see what happens during the 2nd cycle. When the first cycle ended, an automatic re-purchase was made of one red panel, due to your 50% setting. You didn’t have to pay any money for this and yet you got a $810 panel for free. So this gives you +$810 in your account (even though it’s not in money form just yet ). Now you also need to pay to qualify that re-purchased panel. So again, you spend $202.50 (as before) to qualify that re-purchase. This is -$202.50. So by the end of the 2nd cycle, you have gained +$810 and you have shelled out -$202.50. This gives you a net profit (just for 2nd cycle) of +$607.50. Now we should compare the loss of the first cycle with the profit gained from the 2nd cycle. End of first cycle: -$202.50 End of second cycle: +$607.50 Total profit after 2 cycles = +$405 So as you can see, you didn’t make a profit after the first c ycle, but you turned a profit after the 2nd cycle. It’s like a business start-up that spends on stock to get going and when everything is flowing smoothly, the money comes rolling in later. The above scenario only applies to the first time you buy a panel of a particular color. So it will apply the first time you buy a yellow or the first time you buy a purple or the first time you buy a blue etc... But after your 2nd cycle with each of these colors, you won’ t be in a loss situation ever again because you’ll continue to receive a new panel at the end of every cycle due to your re- purchase setting. Your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th etc... will all be pro fitable. It’s only your first purchase which will be unprofitable and you have to ride through that. Here are my calculations for all of the panels. It only shows the profits up to the end of the 2nd cycle and does not count any profits which build up after that point. But if you were to set the re-purchase setting to 100% for the first cycle and 50% for the second cycle, then you can expect the profits below (not taking the running costs into account). I think we’ve covered the most important parts of this busine ss. By using the above strategies, you will grow your busines s profitably. You won’t be over-stretched and you won’t have to shell out additional money (unless you want to). I know of a fellow who put in $150,000 into buying panels. As they continuously pay out, he’ll be a millionaire pretty soon. FAQs What is the purpose behind transferring a panel? If one of your referrals pays you cash, you can transfer a panel to him. Or you can hold a competition of some sort and give the winner a free panel. I’m impatient! How can I make a profit quicker? After your second complimentary cycle, you can elect to boost your panels. However, you should only do this for the green panel and upwards and you should boost them at the beginning of their cycle rather than half way through. Remember to only buy 25% of how many you need. 5 panels to boost, then boost one. What does locking a panel do? Locking a panel stops it from being transferable to someone else. It will also activate the Get Impressions button, so you can collect them into your impression bank. What is the purpose of a campaign? You received some impressions when you purchased your package/panels. You can use these impressions to send traffic to any website you want. To send these impressions to one of your sites, create a campaign from the menu. This is just the icing on the cake when making money with panels. How many impressions should I use for a campaign? You can only have 3 campaigns running at any one time according to the rules, which means you can send traffic to 3 websites. But you should only allocate 30% of your impressions to any campaign. If it doesn’t work out, you can just delete the campaign or change your banner ad. Is there a less expensive way to grow your business than by using traffic packs? Unless you are willing to tell others and get referrals, you ca n’t grow your business by qualifying your panels without purchasing traffic packs. This is the only way to do it and is the most popular. Of course, there is the organic traffic method of qualifying panels but at the time of this writing, it’s not active yet. If you can, tell others and get them to sign up to the Banners Broker site through your affiliate link (which you should find in your back office). When they buy a package or they qualify panels, you should get sales credits which will allow you to qualify your own panels at the ratio of 2:1. The best way to do this is to initially create a site. When you have a site, you can drive people to it so they can read what you have there and then signup using your affiliate link. You’ll find my affiliate link plastered all over this guide for this purpose. Here is my affiliate link again. Final Words If you sit around doing nothing, you won’t get anywhere. Be pro-active and treat this like a business. Get busy purchasing panels and working out when and where you should buy your traffic packs.
