Set Up CG Campaign in TCP

It is quite easy to set up an ad campaign in TCP.

(Note: These pages are a work-in-progress. Please let me know if anything was left out or needs to be changed.)

 

If your TCP pages don’t seem to display as they should, I recommend you use Google Chrome when accessing your TCP back office.

Another tip is to open a blank text file in Notepad to use as a scratchpad to store some links you will be needing as you set up your pages and emails in the next few steps.

For example, you will need your Crowdfunding Guaranteed (CG) referral link. It is located on your CG Dashboard, and looks similar to this:

https://www.crowdfundingguaranteed.com/?u=YOUR-USERNAME

 

BEFORE you begin setting up your lead capture and bridge pages, you should decide if you want to use rotators or not. My suggestion is YES, even if right now you don’t see a need for it. Read thru the next section before making up your mind.

 

Rotators. Do you want to use them?

What if, after you have posted the link to your lead capture page in numerous locations, you decide you don’t want to use that capture page any longer? Or, you create a different capture page that you like better? You can’t pull back all of your ads; your original links are all over the internet.

You would not have this problem if the link you used in your ads was a link for a rotator?

Why? A rotator allows you the flexibility of adding and removing links from the rotator whenever you wish, without impacting previously posted advertising.

For this reason, even if you begin with just one lead capture page, I recommend you put the link for that one and only capture page into a rotator, and you use the link for the rotator in all of your ads.

Another place for a rotator is on your bridge page. Instead of redirecting prospects to YOUR affiliate link to join under you, redirect the prospect to your rotator for affiliate links, even if for the moment you only have one link in the rotator. This gives you flexibility to:

  • Get additional personal CG accounts and advertise them in your rotator as well.
  • Add links for your downline if you wish to help them get referrals.
  • Like links for capture pages, you can add and remove links when you wish without having to modify the link on your bridge page.

If you decide to use rotators, now is the time to set them up, BEFORE setting up your capture and bridge pages.

 

Create rotators

Go to your TCP back office and click on Link Rotator in the TCP Marketing Suite section.

Click on the blue button to Add a rotator for your lead capture pages for Crowdfunding Guaranteed.

  • Enter a descriptive Label, i.e., Crowdfunding LCPs.
  • Enter a Unique Name, i.e., CG-LCPs. This name is unique for ALL of TCP, not just unique for your account.
  • Paste a URL in the box.
  • If you are ready to add more than one URL, click on the green button with Add URL; otherwise, click on Save.

Click on the blue button to Add another rotator for the Crowdfunding Guaranteed affiliate links.

  • Enter a descriptive Label, i.e., Crowdfunding Affiliate Links.
  • Enter a Unique Name, i.e., CrowdfundingAffs. This name is unique for ALL of TCP, not just unique for your account.
  • Paste an affiliate link URL in the box.
  • If you are ready to add more than one URL, click on the green button with Add URL; otherwise, click on Save.

Click on Back to List.

If you do not see both of the rotators, REFRESH the browser.

For each of the rotators, click on Get Link and paste the two rotator links onto your Notepad text file.

 

Set up the autoresponder messages.

In the left-hand menu, go to TCP Marketing Suite, then to Autoresponder Builder.

Click on the BLUE button with + Create New Autoresponder.

On the Details tab,

  • Enter “CrowdfundingP’ in the box beside Label. “Crowdfunding” for the name of the program the emails will pertain to, and “P” for Prospects. Later, if you choose to create a separate series of emails for members that join Crowdfunding Guaranteed, you can use “CrowdfundingM” for the Label for that set.
  • Enter whatever you like in the box beside Description. It is just for YOUR information, i.e., “Emails for Crowdfinding Guaranteed prospects.”
  • Click on the dropdown arrow on the right-hand end of the Status box, and select Active.
  •  Click on the green Submit button to save your settings.

 

Click on the Email Series tab.

  • Click on the dropdown arrow on the right-hand end of the BLUE button containing + Create New Message, then click on Use Share Code.
  • Copy “0f300639” and paste it into the box, then click on OK.

If you do not see a few emails, refresh the browser screen.

 

I hope you updated your information on your TCP Profile screen because, as I mentioned before, some of that info will be auto-populated here in these autoresponder emails thru the use of Tags. To see what I am talking about, click on the Edit button on the right-hand side of the screen for any of the emails.

For example:

  • {my_email} will be replaced with YOUR email address.
  • {firstname} will be replaced with the prospect’s first name.
  • {my_firstName} and {my_lastName} will be replaced with YOUR first and last names.
  • {my_skype} will be replaced with YOUR Skype ID.

You can simply highlight and Delete my photo OR replace it with one of your own photos.

You are welcome to edit these emails to make them sound like they are coming from YOU.

Since I help my downline with advertising, the hyperlinks behind phrases like “CLICK RIGHT HERE” takes you to my rotator for affiliate links. If you are participating in my advertising, just leave the hyperlink as is; otherwise, highlight the phrase and change the hyperlink to YOUR rotator or affiliate link. If you are not sure what to do, contact me. It is better to check and do things right than to find out later on that you are sending people to the wrong place to join Crowdfunding Guaranteed.

 

Set up the lead capture and bridge pages

Go to TCP Marketing Suite on the menu on the left-hand side of your TCP home page, and RIGHT CLICK on Landing Page Builder to Open in a new tab.

At the bottom of the screen, you should see 3 boxes containing “Share Code”, “Preview page” and “Copy Page”.

One by one, Copy each of the share codes for the two LCPs and the bridge page and Paste them into the Share Code box, then click on Copy Page. After you have COPIED each of the 3 pages, REFRESH the browser screen and you should see copies of the three pages on your screen.

                                    Share Code                         Page Name

    LCP 1                        e491bc3b                       crowdfundingLCP1A

    LCP 2                         473177fc                       crowdfundingLCP2A

    Bridge page             e8b3c3e6                       crowdfundingLCP1B

 

Set up the Bridge page

EVERYTHING on these pages can be edited, from the text to the colors to the images, including the video. For now, let’s keep it simple and get you set up and getting signups. Later, you can do creative tweaking to your pages.

Click on the EDIT button for the crowdfundingLCP1B page.

  • Hold the mouse over the Secure My Spot button, then click on Style A.
  • Click on the Link tab on the Attribute Editor.
  • The link you place here will depend on the decision you made as to whether or not you want to use rotators.
  • After pasting the link, click on the X on the line with Attribute Editor to close the editing of this menu.

Hold the mouse cursor over Contact Wayne Randall, then click on Edit Content that appears in the popup menu.

  •  Change my name to YOUR NAME.
  •  When done, click on Stop Editing.

Repeat for the next two lines to edit the Skype and Email entries. You can replace with phone number or whatever means you wish to use for people to contact you.

  • When done, click on Stop Editing.

When satisfied with all of your edits, click on Save Lander to save your edits.

Close the lander.

 

On your overall list of landing pages, click on Get Link for the crowdfundingLCP1B page, and paste the link on your Notepad page.

 

Set up Lead Capture Page 1

EVERYTHING on these pages can be edited, from the text to the colors to the images, including the video. For now, let’s keep it simple and get you set up and getting signups. Later, you can do creative tweaking to your pages.

Click on the EDIT button for the crowdfundingLCP1A page.

  • Hold the mouse over the boxes for Full Name and Email, right above the Secure My Spot button, then click on Edit Content.
  • In the box for Redirect URL, paste in the link for YOUR bridge page, i.e., https://waynerandall.theconversionpros.com/sl/crowdfundingLCP1B/

If you want to change the form, I recommend you use the simpler formats, like the one to the left (only asks for name and email address) or the one in the center (only asks for name, email and phone). When you ask for too much info, people have the tendency of not providing anything. In other words, a lost prospect.

  • When done, click on Save at the top of the screen.

 

Lander Page Settings

  • Title:  Leave as is.
  • Page name:  Leave as is.
  • Mail Campaign. Make sure the name in this field is the name YOU CHOSE when you named your set of messages for the autoresponder. Click on the dropdown arrow on the right-hand side of the box and choose; otherwise, your prospects will NOT receive any of your automated messages.

 

Click on Save Lander to save your edits.

 

Set up Lead Capture Page 2

Click on the EDIT button for the crowdfundingLCP2A page and repeat what you just did for the first lead capture page.

 

 

TEST!!!

BEFORE you begin using these messages and pages, TEST THEM!

  • Click on the link for the rotator for your LCPs. (Click a couple of times to see that both LCPs are seen in the rotator.)
  • Review each page, looking for errors in spelling, especially your name, email address, Skype ID, phone number, etc.
  • Enter your name and email address on the form on the lead capture page, and click on the button to see that it takes you to the bridge page.
  • Click on the button on the bridge page. You should end up on the Crowdfunding Guaranteed home page. Click on JOIN at the top of the CG page. You should be on the JOIN page for one of the affiliates in your rotator.
  • Also, check to see that you receive the first email in the series.
  • Click on links in each email to be sure you go to wherever you should be taken.

 

Once you are sure everything is working as it should be, THEN you can begin advertising the link for your rotator.

Good luck!
