Program Review: Phone Followup

Phone Followup is the brilliant creation of Joel Therien, Mike Potvin, Mark Call and Ken Hammond. The genious behind the scenes is one of the best programmers in he world who's name shall remain silent :-) (we wouldn't want someone else trying to steal our programmer, now would we?).

How does it work?

Well, as you know, email marketing is still one of the best ways to build your business online. You may also be aware that email marketing alone can be ineffective.

Imagine this ... your visitor subscribes to your list from your website and immediately receives a personal voice message OR ... a personal TEXT MESSAGE from YOU!

Statistics tell us that 95% of people who have cell phones, read their text messages right away ... compared to 22% of email readers!

I'm sure by now you can see how Phone Followup can enhance your results and really build that 'Know, Like Trust' factor.

Setting up Phone Followup is so simple, anyone can do it, regardless of your experience.

Best part of Phone Followup to me is that it is connected directly to my GVO eResponder (You can also choose Aweber or GetResponse - my choice is GVO).

Below, I will walk you through the steps to setup your Phone Followup account to connect to GVO eResponder and to promote Earth Friendly Biz (you can replace EFB with your main program).

In this exercise, our focus is going to be on TEXT MESSAGES only. If you wish to use the Voice messages, you will need to record or upload a recorded message.

STEP ONE: Signup for Phone Followup

Once registered, check your email to confirm your account. You must confirm your account to gain access.

RECOMMENDATION: I suggest you use a Gmail account to register with Phone Followup.

STEP TWO: Purchase Credits

From inside your Phone Followup members area, click on Buy Credits at the top of the page. You will have three options to choose from.

Voice Followup
Text Followup
Voice & Text Followup

You can try the entire system for 30 days for just $4.95. After 30 days, you will pay $49.95 for either Text or Voice followup or $69.95 for the Text/Voice system.

STEP THREE: Verify your caller ID number

You will need to enter your phone number (Cell Phone) into the system. This is the number that your recipient will see for return messages. It's really simple. Just enter your cell phone number then wait for the message from your phone and enter the code supplied.

STEP FOUR: Setup Your Auto-Responder Campaign

Since we are focused only on the use of Text messaging in this review, we will skip the Recording of a Voice message and go directly to setting up your Text Campaign.

You will need to set aside a bit of time for this section as you will need to setup your Autoresponder campaign as well.

Login to your GVO back office at (if you are not a member of GVO, you can join here

Click on the eResponder icon on the left.

Click on Campaigns, Add a Campaign.

In this example, I am calling my campaign EFB as I am going to use this to direct people to our Earth Friendly Biz funded sponsoring system.

When setting up my campaign, I set my redirect URL to Step 2 of our EFB system as our visitor has already filled out a form. You will set your redirect URL to the program or business website you are promoting.

Once your campaign is added, you need to setup the Optin Message and your Followup message.

STEP FIVE: Your Text Ad Campaign

You will edit the above message to reflect the business you are promoting with your list.

Ok, now we are back inside the Phone Followup members area and ready to setup our actual Text campaign.

Click on My Campaigns

Click on Text Opt-in Campaign

What would you like to name your campaign?

Enter something relevant to your campain. In this example, I am setting up a campaign for Earth Friendly Biz so I entered EFB as my campaign name. You will call it something relative to your business or service that you are offering.

Click Next

Enter Text To Send In Welcome Message?

This is where you enter your text message that your subscriber will receive on their cell phone. You have 100 characters.

My Message

Thank you for subscribing to my list. Reply to this message and let's connect. Janet Legere

Click Next

What Page Do You Want To Send Them To After They Optin?

This is where you put the website you want your subscriber to visit. In this example, I am sending them to step 2 of our three step system

the HTTP:// is already listed, you enter only what come after:

You will put the link to your business or opportunity here.

Which Auto-Responder Do You Want To Add?

Now you can choose between three separate professional autoresponders. GVO, Getresponse and Aweber. We are choosing GVO. Setup for GetResponse and Aweber will be similar. We recommend you join GVO through your sponsor once inside your Phone Followup system.

Select GVO from the drop down menu

Enter your GVO username (mine is janetlegere)
Enter your GVO Campaign name (mine is called EFB) NOTE: it must be EXACT!

Click Submit

You will be presented with a Form Code to add to your website. Simply copy it and paste it to your Text Widget on your blog, to the html of a blog post or to the html of your static website.

We are adding it to our Earth Friendly Biz blog. If you are using Wordpress (easy to setup with GVO), it is very simple to add a Text widget with your form code to your Blog.

I almost forgot to mention ... when you become a member of Phone Followup, you can add your GVO username to the system as the GVO eResponder is the focus of training and examples at Phone Followup. AND ... you can earn 25% on your personal referrals every month! Just 4 members and your monthly fee is covered! Phone Followup is going to change the face of Internet Marketing. I truly believe it's the missing link - and now it's not missing anymore!

Program Review - Phentnet Fast List


At the end of the day ... it all comes down to having enough quality resources where you can advertise your business and when I come across a resource that is top quality and offers me the ability to email their list... I'm all over it!

Such is the case with Phentnet Fast List ... Paul Hance is a stand up guy and a leader in the industry and his goal is to create an ACTIVE list ... because an active list is going to bring you results!

When Paul put his list together, he did it with you, the advertiser, in mind.

First, there are only two member levels, Free and Gold. The gold upgrade price is just $14.95 a year, making it a very reasonable annual price.

Secondly, when a member places their link in an email the link there are no frames. The link is directed to their website. This generates an actual hit.

Thirdly, Paul pays a one time referral commission to free members of $3 and he pays gold members 60%. What this does is allow you to build your downline and earn money for your time spent.

The system is not be credit based.

In Paul's own words:
My goal is to create a group of dedicated markers that commit to helping “a team” of fellow marketers by viewing their offerings, which in turn will multiply the number of exposures to their own personal website(s) and ultimately increase their sales and expand their businesses.

I simply believe that people would realize that as a group helping each other the results would be measurable.
As an upgraded member, you can send your offer out 4 times a day ... this is incredible because I know this list will grow and I know it will continue to be responsive because that is Paul's goal.

The other thing I love about Phentnet Fast List is the Downline Builder with quality traffic and list building programs.

It's a great way to keep your downline together.

Phentnet Fast List is going to quickly become one of the top responsive resources online.

I hope Phentnet Fast List brings you the same results!

Happy Marketing,

Janet Legere Reviews Orange Leads

Unlimited, free, business opportunity leads for any business

This little gem has been hiding out in my marketing portfolio, working away in the background even as I ignore the poor thing.

Orange Leads is one of those programs that I joined and setup and ... well ... forgot about.

You know how it is when you get busy and things get left behind.

Throughout the past year, I've received regular commissions from Orange Leads as well as regular contacts from other Orange Leads members.

Today, my annual membership came due and it reminded me to take a good long look at Orange Leads and what I found ... literally surprised me.

I've been clicking around and checking things out and well, frankly ... I can't imagine why everyone isn't using this great resource!

You need leads ... You need to talk to people ... You need contact with people ... You need people contacting you. And that is exactly what I am experiencing at the Orange Leads system.

I went in yesterday and added a few friends and sent a few messages and I connected with three LIVE people who added me to skype. One signed up in my business.

How cool is that?

Now, don't get me wrong here ... Orange Leads is very complex system but there are a few things you can do inside the system to make it work for you.

First, Orange Leads is free to join ... however ... this is one program you definitely want to upgrade in ... Premium members are featured throughout the system and because of that exposure, my list is growing daily ... yours will too if you setup and use the system.

Step One is to signup - upgrade at least to Platinum member if possible

Take 20 minutes and watch the movie on the page. It explains how to use Orange Leads - keep in mind ... the focus of this video is sharing Orange Leads with Network marketers ...

If you know anyone who currently buys leads and calls leads ... then you need to get on board with Orange Leads and share YOUR Orange Leads link with the people YOU know who already purchase leads.

These same leads they BUY are FREE at Orange Leads.

I've talked to many users of Orange Leads and they are seeing great results just like you will.

There is full training inside the member's area on how to use the leads you receive. I have added a few of my own tips here.

From your control panel, locate the Orange Leads button to request your free leads. If you do not plan to phone them, use the leads without numbers.

When the leads come up, I get their email address and I add them to my Skype list. I send them a request from Skype to connect with me. So far, I see 3 to 6 of every 10 leads I invite, add me to skype.

Once you have someone on Skype, you can have a conversation ... in text OR in voice! You can begin the important relationship building process and help your new lead get to know, like and trust you.

Another way to connect with people is through other Orange Leads members ... you can join in the public chat, add new friends and use Orange Leads as a social network environment.

As a member of Orange Leads, you will have the ability to setup your ads within the system. Depending on your level of membership, you will receive a lot of traffic to your ads.

This is only a light dusting of how to use Orange Leads, I highly recommend listening to Timothy's training ... he does a great job teaching you how to use Orange Leads.

Add in my little tips and you will have a very active place that is continually producing active leads.

Happy Marketing,
