A dotrim Review

The 10K challenge is an aggressive downline building program that concentrates on building traffic and commissions firstly through Safelists and List Mailers and then funneling members into some reliable established programs.

The program claims that by consistently working 35 minutes per day and performing delegated tasks it is possible for a member to earn as much as $10000 per month.

My first reaction was one of skepticism, but having now reviewed the material inside the member’s area and tested the program I’m impressed with its business model, integrity and vision.

Can you make $10,000 per month with it?

Well, remarkably, I believe it to be possible, but having said that, I believe that to give yourself the maximum chance with a program like this you need to tweak the marketing strategy to put the odds in your favour.

The 10K Challenge Strategy In A Nutshell.

Essentially, the10k Challenge encourages members to advertise the 10K challenge progressively across a range of List Mailers, Safelists and Text Ad Exchanges.  The program provides some quality marketing material and a couple of very useful tools . As you join more advertising resources you place your affiliate link inside the members area -so that as people you recruit follow you in, they join under you.  Its a pretty sound strategy that has been used in various formats by a variety of successful downline building programs.

The key of course is volume – you simply have to to get the 10K Challenge in front of enough eyeballs, to get sufficient people to opt in to the 10k challenge.  The program is honest  and realistic enough to acknowledge this  and sets a  target of 400 visitors to the affiliate landing page per day.
Now to put everything in context – some safelist mailers have very low click through rates (as low as 0.1% of emails sent. That’s 10 visitors for every 10000 mails sent), while the very good ones can have click through rates as high as 2 or even 3% – that’s 200 to 300 visitors per 100000 emails sent.

Lets be honest.  Getting 400 visitors per day to an affiliate landing page using Safelist traffic is a tough ask for the average online marketer – halving that ratio would make the whole thing  much more achievable and I believe that there are ways of doing that – these are covered in the strategy section below.

10K Challenge strengths

      • The 10K Challenge is well put together – the training is clear and direct.
      • The programs recommended are all reputable and established.
      • There are a lot of promo codes to claim free advertising with- these alone are worth joining for
      • There are strategies presented for managing the flood of emails.
      • There are some handy tools and little known programs that will assist with your advertising.
      • The business model is sound.

 

10 K Challenge Weaknesses

Firstly, let me state that no program created is perfect – all strategies have inbuilt weaknesses – being aware of what they are and turning them to our advantage can be the difference between success and failure.

      • By and large the 10K challenge weaknesses are easily catered for.  Essentially everything revolves around the strategy of promoting the 10K challenge affiliate program up front.  I understand why program owners do this – most people are quite content to promote a program directly because its easy. But in doing so the affiliate becomes enslaved in the constant promotion and branding of a program that they have no ownership of – essentially when you promote any program on a mass advertising site like safelist, text ad exchanges or Traffic Exchanges you become involved in a great big lottery as viewers become aware of the program over time and then randomly join an affiliate that just happens to be in front of them. That’s no way to run an advertising campaign.
      • The other weakness that stands out is that everyone is encouraged to market the same program to the same advertising channels.  This could and probably will cause program fatigue in a relatively short space of time. Both of these weaknesses can be overcome with a little effort

SUGGESTED 10K CHALLENGE STRATEGY

Down line builders can be quite a lucrative way to build an online business – this particular downline builder has the potential to be profitable very quickly.
If you sign up for the 10K challenge and work exactly as directed and stick to the task at hand you will be successful over time – but it will be a pretty hard road.
Here is my suggested strategy to make the 10Kchallenge work- please read this in its entirety as I am making a partnership offer at the end of this.

      • Join the 10Kchallenge today and start working through the daily tasks – but do not promote the 10K challenge directly
      • Create a short report (something like this) that you can give away to people recommending the 10Kchallenge
      • Create a squeeze page that you can begin building your own subscriber list with – offering an in depth report on the 10K challenge.
      • Start promoting your squeeze page.
      • Checkout the latest data for the safelists that dotrim has been tracking, and join up to 5 (more if you are happy to do so) of these that are not on the 10K Challenge downline builder. Advertise your squeeze page in those safelists.

If you are an experienced marketer you will be able to implement this strategy yourself, however, less experienced marketers may find this strategy a little to intimidating.
