People who are in the internet marketing niche often struggle because there are a lot of competing websites to outrank, but one strategy I always recommend they use (which I also use) is Muncheye. This article will explain what this place is and how to leverage it:
Understanding what Muncheye is:
This is basically a “headquarters” website that provides a list of internet marketing products that are about to be or have recently been released onto the market. It’s a very popular and well known site in the internet marketing world and if you’re in this niche, you need to become familiar with it and start using it as soon as possible (I’ll show you how in a moment).
Both product creators who make internet marketing programs and products as well as affiliates who know about this site, use it to get an edge on the competition.
Here’s how they use it (and how you should use it too):
There’s 2 groups of people who mainly benefit from this website:
First we have the vendors.
People who create internet marketing products (vendors) typically do it in the following ways:
They make it and list it on JVZoo, Clickbank, Warrior Plus as well as other places, or they create their own individual website and affiliate program with it. However, before they even launch it, they list it on Muncheye.com giving affiliates time to see it and possibly choose to promote it early on.
As an incentive, they offer “early bird” sales and even free access to these products to potential affiliates. Why? Because they want affiliates to come over and promote their program. Very often, these vendors will also try to compile an email list of affiliates before the launch and they’ll also do that through Muncheye.com.
The more exposure and popularity they gain before the launch, the more affiliates they can have promoting them and by the time the product officially launches on the market, they’ll have potentially countless affiliates out there working hard to make the vendor sales.
Then we have the affiliates.
You probably already figured out how to use Muncheye.com as an affiliate but if not, it’s OK as I will explain that. Basically, because this site gives you a free preview of upcoming products in the internet marketing world, and you can choose to promote them before the competition gets a look at these products or even starts promoting them, themselves.
By getting that early look, you can set up a blog post, a review of the product before the competition and get high rankings on Google even before the product officially launches. Naturally many products that launch will start to get searches on Google from regular people and your review will be at the top by the time that happens.
This is the exact formula that is known as product launch jacking and it’s been popular for many years. If you’re an affiliate and you hear about a product, then hop on Google and see a ton of reviews even when the product is still new, and are scratching your head wondering how they all those other affiliates find out about it before you did, the answer is: They used Muncheye.com
It’s a good formula but it doesn’t always work:
Since there are A LOT of products listed on the Muncheye site constantly, what usually happens is that most of them will not get the type of attention after they launch. It may often be the case that even if you find a product early on, review it, and get that review ranked on page 1 of Google, that when it launches, it won’t get a lot of traffic or searches.
This is usually because of a few things:
-The name of the product sucks. Therefore it’s easy to forget the name.
-The marketing of the vendor sucks. Perhaps they aren’t well known.
-It’s just hard to predict how a product will do when it launches. You have no keyword stats to look at, no info other than the product name and it’s creator.
-Perhaps the compensation the vendor offers their affiliates is pretty bad. Therefore no affiliate will want to promote it.
This means that when you start using Muncheye, that you will need to be picky about which products you decide to review, because you don’t want to needlessly review programs that won’t get you any searches or sales…
5 tips on how to pick the right products on Munch eye:
This strategy typically works for me, but it’s not a 100% guaranteed:
1. Look at BIG launches, not regular releases.
Munch eye typically segments the products that are about to be released into 2 parts: Regular releases and big launches. Big launches typically mean the vendor invested a lot of money into the program and is well known. All launches just shows every single product that’s listed on the Munch eye site.
Those are usually the ones which get more attention and searches come product launch time. Here’s an example:
2. Find products which sound good.
Let me show you an example. In the following screenshot I narrowed down the field of products into the ones which sound best. I am doing this because once it starts getting marketed, a product which sounds good typically resonates with it’s customer base better than those which are hard to remember.
Think about it, a product which sounds good makes selling it easier. The customer, even when they know nothing about it will gravitate towards it better if it sounds like it’s easier to understand:
Now in this list, I highlighted the big launches in red and all launches in orange. As an affiliate, I’d probably prioritize reviewing the ones in red first, followed by those in orange, but either way, just this list alone gives me 10 products to review.
3. Find products which have a popular internet marketing name behind them.
I left this for the last because most affiliates just don’t know who the celebs are in the internet marketing world, in which case, rely more on advice #2, but in any case, if you know popular names in the market, look for them as well as the good sounding products.
Popular internet marketers typically have better PR going on and that lets their product launches be more successful. For example in the above list, the names which stand out to me personally are: Jeff Walker, Shane Paxton and Joshua Zamora.
I wouldn’t worry too much about this tip, but it’s basically just extra “insurance” in helping you pick out a product that can potentially be a huge hit.
If you’re new to popular internet marketing icons, I would recommend reading this list I set up.
4. When you pick a product out, review it. Keep it simple.
Let’s say out of the above list, I chose “PLR Jackpot”. I would write a post on my site that be titled “PLR JackPot Review. Is it Good?” and just go from there. I’d repeat that for every other product I review, but keep the titles unique each time you do it, otherwise, it’ll get boring for your reader.
5. You don’t have to promote every single product.
Since in my experience, most internet marketing products suck, it’s usually not a good policy, as an affiliate to promote everything you find. What I typically do is piggyback off the product that is about to be launched, look at it as carefully as I can and determine a few things:
A) If it’s good, I WILL promote it.
B) If it’s average or bad, I’ll still review it, but recommend my personal choice for BEST internet marketing system, which is Wealthy Affiliate’s system.
What happens in these cases is that I leverage the popularity of the product I’m reviewing so when traffic comes to my site from the review I wrote and sees that Wealthy Affiliate is better, they’ll join that and I will still earn money from this.
Some may say this is a bad way of doing business, but I would argue differently. I am looking for the BEST product to satisfy the customer, not the vendor. If the vendor can’t release a good product on the market to help the people he/she is selling to make money online, then why would I want to do that? The customer would just waste money and not succeed.
You also should note that there is no filter for the products being put up on Munch eye. It’s not like the moderators of that site examine if it’s good, bad or a scam, you need to make that decision as an affiliate and on my end, since I have experience, I know how distinguish the quality of the products I aim to review. And it is very likely many products you find on this site will be bad or even a scam, so be careful.
Note: If you are someone who uses this site and are good at picking out products that get good stats, let me know your personal tips.
My final thoughts:
Now that you know what Munch Eye is and how to use it, if you are truly an affiliate who knows how to blog and rank their reviews, feel free to use these strategies I listed.
If you are an affiliate or even a vendor who has trouble succeeding in the affiliate marketing realm or internet marketing in general, I would hold off just for a little bit on using this site and I would focus instead on getting good affiliate marketing/vendor training before you re-engage in this strategy.
Use Wealthy Affiliate and it’s training to help you become a successful affiliate, like I did. They’ll show you how to target keywords, find the products to promote, rank high and make the sales correctly:
