It isn’t very often that I pat myself on the back and say, “Wow, Gina! That was a REALLY brilliant idea!”
But today, for the first time in a very long time, I’ve got to toot my own horn a bit and tell you about a REALLY, REALLY brilliant idea I had recently!
It’s important for you to hear because it can totally increase the Power & Influence of your marketing!
For the last several years, I have been wanting a WordPress plugin that could allow you to cloak your affiliate links and other external links in a very specific way.
As you probably already know, there are TONS of link cloaking tools already available – many of them f’ree, such as tinyurl.com.
There are even f’ree WordPress plugins that allow you to cloak links such as the Redirections Plugin or the Pretty Link plugin.
So why the heck did I want to spend time and $$ creating yet another WordPress plugin that could cloak a link?
Well, the tool that I wanted had to work in a specific way…
Most link cloakers (or link redirect tools) allow you to create a link such as www.YourDomain.com/shortname and when clicked, it would simply redirect someone to the page you wanted them to go to such as www.AffiliateProgram.com/product/aff_id=1234.
When you got to the page, the address bar would no longer contain YourDomain.com but would instead have the site you were sending people to in it.
The tool that I wanted to have wouldn’t do that at all…
Instead, the address bar URL would continue to have YOUR domain name in it.
And, at the top of the page, just below the address bar, there would be a header image with YOUR logo in it, that would have a button on it that said “Return to ________” with the blank being filled in with YOUR Brand’s name.
Below that header image would be the page they were being sent to.
If someone clicked anywhere on the page they were being sent to, they would still see that header image at the top of the page — no matter how many pages they visited.
Better still, I wanted to have ALL of the clicks actually tracked in Google Analytics so that it would look to Google like the visitor was actually staying on YOUR site, visiting YOUR pages.
Why is this so important you might wonder?
Well, especially now, after the recent Google Hummingbird update, your search engine rankings really depend on getting your website visitors engaged! (Engagement means how long they stay, how many pages they visit, etc.)
With such a tool, you would have HUGE engagement – even if you were s’elling other people’s products!
So, you can image how thrilled I was when my good friend, Ken Krell, had his programmer create this WordPress plugin for me!
Ken recently hosted a training called “How to Get Your Customers to Stick to You Like Glue” to introduce this new plugin to the world at a crazy price — but for a few days only.
Right now, you can get this Power & Influence building tool for less than $100 for a full year of unlimited access. (When we release it, the price will be $97 or $197 up front, with a monthly recurring fee, so this is really one heck of a deal!)
Now, this is just a BETA release so there might be a few little details that are not yet 100%. But we’ve had beta testers using it for a few weeks already so we’re already pretty polished!
You can grab your copy now (and watch the special training) at:
Ken and I are even including monthly training calls to help you really use this powerful tool to its fullest!
Even I’ve been BLOWN AWAY at how powerful it really is!
It is so much more than just a simply link cloaking tool! It has really become a true campaign builder!
It’s a tool that will have you going “WOW!” too!
Go watch that webinar to see it in action at:
After you’ve had a chance to try it out, stop by the DU Google+ Community at www.askggg.com/forum and let us know what unique ideas you’ve come up with for using it! We’ve already heard from people who have:
* Created a wrapped page to take people to an affiliate offer, used the cloaked link in an article to get article readers to go to the affiliate offer, and then when they click on the Return button, taken them to affiliate offer #2 (so that they have a way to get s’ales from those who didn’t b’uy!)
* Created a wrapped page to take people to a piece of content they had curated in a blog post (that way, rather than having a traffic leak, they instead return people back to a s’ales page on their site instead!)
* And MANY more ideas (including a few that has us furiously adding features like an Exit Pop so that if they don’t click the return button, you still ahve a way to get a s’ale!)
I’m not kidding when I say that this is one Power & Influence building tool! The ideas are endless!

P.S. If you’d like to see an example of a “wrapped page” (in other words, cloaked link), take a look at:
This is one of the DirectionsU Bachelor Students, Cindy Parris, who has a weight loss site and who promotes an affiliate product called the Striiv Pedometer. When you click the “Return” button in the header graphic, you’re taken to an article on her site about how to start walking for exercise.
Does that give you a few ideas on how you can use this? Remember — you get to specify the page you want to take people to AND the page you want them to return to on your site! And all of it gets tracked in Analytics! Way cool and WAYYYYYY Powerful!
