I noticed that many people are promoting Newspapers Alive.

I’m an amazon affiliate and make money from review style sites, and I’m interested in trying out newspaper traffic and I’m seriously considering joining this.

I just don’t know how much work I actually have to do myself? I don’t want to be biting off more than I can chew.  I already spend 2-3 hours every evening trying to advertise with mailing sites and adding links on sites.

Is there anyone here that has experience with Newspapers Alive and if so, care to share?

I bought this service.  So far, everything has worked like a charm and the training videos are excellent.  My default zones for circulation (you can have 3 selected at a time) were set to 3, 8 and 10 and they have been performing well, so I have not had to change them.  I am not sure quite yet the optimal strategy for when/if to change them. I may needs to re-watch the 3rd training video as I believe it covers zone selection strategies.

Hi Everyone


I've been on Ben Harris’ list for a number of years and have had access to several of his mentoring webinars and I must say that they are the cream of the crop.


In regards to his Newspaper venture, I’m impressed. Here is my actual results from yesterday with “Package 1 subscription”:  


Zone 1 (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont)

Zone 6 (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas)

Zone 8 (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming)


Zone 1 - 52 Offer Page Views

Zone 6 - 132 Offer Page Views

Zone 8 - 44 Offer Page Views


Zone 1 - 6 Click-Throughs

Zone 6 - 17 Click-Throughs

Zone 8 - 11 Click-Throughs

 

The billing addresses on 2 new sales yesterday were from Denver and Dallas, indicating they came from zones 6 and 8.  I will keep these 2 zones and swap out zone 1 when my next zone change comes up in a few days.

I will also begin testing this service in the next week or so. After doing some research, everyone has reported having positive experiences so far using the service.

I hope they can maintain that quality of advertising as they gain popularity.

From an average joe who has made a few bucks doing this stuff
here's my honest take:
 
#1: NPA has devised the most comprehensive
 method of organizing a newspaper ad co-op
 that I’ve ever been part of (Yes. I am a member)
 
#2: The video tutorials presented make sense
and are really easy to follow.
 
#3: I know Ben Harris personally and will
vouch up and down to his knowledge of online
and offline marketing and his desire to help
marketers succeed (I even met him at the Affiliate
Summit East in 2015)
 
#4: NPA is a fantastic way to diversify your ad
Campaign into the offline world without a whole
Bunch of daily labor.
 
Anyways... NPA is sweet because I simply change
my zones each week, make minor tweaks to my
Offer page, and then have them do the rest.
 
Their training videos are also very, very good.
 
The fact they're offering Package 1 subscriptions for
As low cost as they are, is enough for at least anyone
Give them a try.
 
Hope that helps!
 
PS: No link here... I save those for my subscribers

Ok guys, I’m back after 10 days using this.  
 
- I like the training videos.  I went through them all in about 30 minutes and was left with a very good overall understanding of how this things works.  I found lots of useful and unique information in these videos.
 
- The offer page editor is fairly straight forward to use.  I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t embed javascript into my offer page, but that’s not really a big deal so I worked around it.

- I bought a fiverr gig from a guy that’s going to write me specific doorway page content to use on my offer page for my Amazon review sites.  I’d like to test out different packages for all 10 zones to see which perform best.
 
Thanks again for your input guys.  I believe I’ve made the right decision.

The 3 Reasons I think Newspapers Alive has good potential is:

1. The guy who sent me his link to this program is a winner and wouldn't risk harming his reputation by promoting some 2nd rate B.S.
2. I've added the Newspapers Alive video script to my Swipe File and I am very stingy with what gets saved and archived in this puppy.
3. The video explanations of how the system functions are quite thorough and shows these guys know what they’re talking about

My one reservation is that I don't have a killer product of my own yet.

I heard that Newspapers Alive works better if you have your own product to promote? Maybe someone in this thread can shed some light on this from personal experience?

I can vouch for this as well.
 
We’re currently advertising with Newspapers Alive and so far, have tested 6 of the 10 zones.  The quality of visitors have been fairly consistent among zones, yet we do still have 4 more zones to cycle through.  
 
Overall, it’s a very reliable platform for reaching business opportunity seekers “offline.”  The only other “offline” advertising I have invested in has been over $1500 with Post Card Mania (which was a complete FLOP)
 
If you’re a beginner/intermediate/advanced marketer with a solid product and you’re sick of fiddling with your online ad campaign, Newspapers Alive is a fantastic solution.

When I heard about this little/big service, I am determined to see if this is legit, based on the amount of people who are talking about it. To start off with, I created an account and for the last 31hrs I am APPARENTLY getting a 47% total clicks, after dividing from views. think that is great? I thought so.. Until..

 

I checked my link clicks and NOTHING. Nada. So, i'm not here to judge, all I can do/say is base it on my experiences so far. This seems very strange to have in total with just over 83 total clicks and not 1 showing on my affiliate link (when I changed to another link - not affiliate link - nothing). So i'm interested to know why this is the case? 

 

I have also sent a message to support and excited to hear their reply.

 

Feel free to post all your replies

 

I will be updating my journey if anyone cares to follow.

The click rate of this traffic is not bad at all, between 7% to 19% based on the experience of many of its members and mine personally selling goods, services and home based business opportunities. The company must have an really high retention rate.
 
The attractiveness of this advertising model is that you don't need to sponsor people in order to make money from the advertising.
 
This is rare and almost unreal. But it makes sense, since although newspapers have diminished in readership over the years, millions still DO read them daily, and the competition among advertisers must be much lower than in years past.  
 
This site is amazing.  I say this because I recently put it to the test and I am already making money.
 
If you have any questions or need more information, feel free to PM...
 
Hope that helps
 
John

Thanks John for your reply, not sure if you are answering my concerns or indirectly promoting or offering advice. 

 

 

UPDATE: Support sent me a message saying their was a redirect problem on the offer page in their system and have refunded my money until they sort it out.
 
My offer page was doing about 47% click through on my links, but as I mentioned, no data, clicks, spike in traffic was showing on my stats after trying this for less than 2 days. Which was very strange.
 
The positive is, they gave me my money back.
 
The cons, I spent $10 for someone to design a basic offer page.
 
For those who are reading this wanting to know: 
Q: is this real traffic or bot? 
A: In my experience, I can not confirm it is. 
 
Q: Does this traffic convert? 
A: I got 47% CTR but no data to actually show proof (link clicks, visitor tracking and even screen record traffic) - because thats what matters right?
 
Q: Do these NPA people buy? 
A: Not from my experience.
 
Q: What are my next steps would you try it again?
A: Support have said, when the developer has sorted out the problem, they will contact me to resign up. Once and if they have confirmed this I will try it again. Otherwise no.

I don't participate much in guru launches but I bought into this service when Ben launched it to his own list.
 
First, I was blown away by the video training.
 
Second, that traffic is among the best I have used in years.
 
Of course, it's not a cheap service. I’m on the $399/mo plan but I see a nice return on this each month.
 
The quality is excellent but I'm a little saddened by the fact that the people who need it the most probably won't be able to afford it.
 
Plus, support gave me so many bonuses for buying the product  in pre-launch I was amazed.
 
They really over delivered.
 
Incidentally - I dislike launches immensely.
 
Any money I make from a launch I donate a chunk to charity. 25% of it.
 
And I rarely recommend a launch product.
 
So if Bens pitch resonates with you - it's a good product.
 
Does that help?
 
Peace,

Hi Guys, I have another month plus of experience with this traffic and I am very pleased with my campaigns progress.

Zone 10 is my favorite at the moment.  Today I have over 100 newspaper visitors from this zone alone (zones 1 and 2 are my other selections) Interesting to note that zone 10 has only 4 states in it yet it is delivering over 2/3 of my daily traffic quota.  I went through the truity study in the backoffice and tried optimizing my offer page based on personality traits but it's really hard to gauge if this strategy holds any water.  I am however certain this traffic response very well for my offers mid range price point (whereas it doesn’t as well on traffic exchanges and freebie-related sites)

Wow, 25% to charity.  I’d like to do something like this once my business grows a bit larger.  For now, I reinvest my profits back into advertising.


Package 3 wasn’t available when I joined.  Is it worth the extra $340 or so per month?

 

Also, what bonuses did you get in prelaunch?
