Paypal.me – what a simple innovation



The best innovations are sometimes both simple to grasp, elegant in the solution they create, and almost always obvious in retrospect.

PayPal’s “Paypal.me” idea ticks all 3 checkboxes, providing individuals, startups and solopreneurs alike with a quick and easy way to invoice for services, creating payment links “on the fly” like this:


for example.

Simple to grasp, elegant and super-quick to set up.

There are so many ways this can be used; here’s some quick ideas:

  • You’re a business growth consultant who charges £120/hour, offering some freemium content on a Google Hangout or Periscope to a targeted group. At timely moments during the valuable free group session, explain that for one on one sessions, viewers can take advantage of a 30 minute “special” where you’re offering to help them move forward, at a 50% discount: http://paypal.me/yourname/30. Or perhaps instead, if they want to take the next step, you could send them to http://paypal.me/yourname/1 for a £1/$1 trial for a 15 minute session.
  • You’re out with some business friends & the group decides to go for an impromptu Italian meal – but you’ve accidentally left your credit cards at home. Since there’s no charge to receive money if it’s from friends, most of the group have already grabbed their own personalised Paypal.me link, and the leader sends you his Paypal.me link for your share of the meal via text.
  • You’ve just introduced a new B2B service and you’re with a prospective client who really seems to want to trial the system today, but you’re not entirely sure they’re being serious. You could create a Paypal.me link “on the fly” as you’re talking with them as way of checking where they’re at: “Tell you what, let me text you a trial link where you can run with our full system for 30 days, and then you’ll be in a much better place to see if this is really a good fit for your business”.

…this is obviously just the tip of a very large iceberg in terms of how Paypal.me could be used.

But you can already see that with a bit of preparation on your part, you can leverage Paypal.me in all sorts of creative ways to help with better cashflow, give new clients a low risk way to get on-board, and a whole bunch more.

How about a tip jar for Bloggers, with a WordPress plugin that gives the reader an Ajax-based dropdown where they select the amount they want to tip and then pay via Paypal.me in just a few clicks)?

Or maybe something similar to the above for a yard sale, or even you’re own Etsy-style “pay what you reckon” e-commerce page, where visitors can choose from a range of prices?

What ideas can you come up with that will help your business using Paypal.me?

You have a great teaching style and make it super simple for anyone of any level to jump on this.

The mods are packed and I LOVE the summary section you provide below each video….makes for very easy access when you need to go back and review.

Thanks for all the relative links you provide, and especially your Closing The Deal and Upsell Strategiessections!

I'm not going to go into major detail because there's no reason to spill this method. It is wise investment for anyone involved in offline at all.

The proceeds are going to a much needed cause. You are a super guy for looking out for your fellow neighbors on this planet.

Way to go Dez….you hit a homer with this one

And, if you know someone is walking the walk, you can be sure that the strategies shared are tried and tested.

And these strategies are VERY cool. Not only are the leads Red Hot, but they'rereally FRESH too!

So couple the lead gen strategies with Dez's follow up training and you're on a sure fire winner.

Apparently this is Dez's first WSO… It's put together beautifully, like a seasoned pro.

Awesome job mate!

Wow. I have been bursting at the seams in excitement to talk about this course. We know by now that all great ideas are simple ones.

This idea is not just brilliant, but quite simple and to be honest, elegant.

And profit going to charity to boot?

Get on this, help the needy, use the information, and make some money.

Sounds like a great idea to me!

If you're an experienced marketer, you could stop right there and be good to go — and have another very effective leads-gen method to add to your client-getting arsenal. But that's the course's *starting* point… The course is 4 complete modules

After you learn the basic Offline Snatcher Blueprint, Dez shares detailed strategies to less experienced marketers or simply marketers who want an over-the-shoulder view of someone who's already "doing it." How to avoid cold calling the business, how to approach, services to offer, outsourcing ideas… Some of this will be familiar but overall a very useful WSO. Information provided for US, UK, Australian and many other markets. 

*there was a slight glitch on the background audio for a couple of the videos but in a brief chat with Dez he noted that he was already aware of it and would be uploading the fix momentarily. (Fantastic customer service, BTW.)
If you're an offline marketer who wants to add more clients to your business, you will find useful strategies and practical hands-on steps to follow. His course is a recommend.

Super Easy Tube Traffic Review

Super Easy Tube Traffic is a great introduction on how to use YouTube to create content that is of value to others for the purposes of branding and promotion.

In Super Easy Tube Traffic, Zane Miller overviews every major step required to get going with YouTube, from keyword research, to channel optimization, right through to social bookmarking and even how best to use outsourcing.

I've been using YouTube as one of my lead generation strategies for over 2 years, but Zane shares some golden nuggets in this course which I know you will either not have heard of before, or you're not yet implementing with maximal effect.
Zane Miller really is an expert in YouTube – his nickname is the The YouTube Sherpa – and not without good cause, as he has built an entire business around creating great content and sharing it on the world's most popular video sharing site.

Great content which capture your audience has always been at the heart of what YouTube is about, and that's exactly where Zane is coming from. Rather than gaming the system, Zane shows you how to leverage YouTube to your best advantage, without coming across as spammy or false.

Super Easy Tube Traffic is a terrific introduction to YouTube and something that you will undoubtedly come back to again and again as your experience grows.

The power of networking with social media & video – how I got Dan Ariely to leave a comment on my blog (unintentionally!)

Click here to find out how to add a new income stream to your life

The video is *really* quiet, so turn up your speakers to full :)

Dan Ariely's book Predictably Irrational is a superb dive into the psychology behind why people make the buying decisions that they do, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it at the beginning of 2011.

What is more interesting is that I inadvertently attracted his attention – he wrote a comment on my Mad Web Scientist – which is pretty cool in my books.

So what if you intentionally used this strategy? It might just work, particularly if you did a whole string of short videos detailing your thoughts on a particular author's work.

Now, have a think why that might be useful attention to get, and write your thoughts below, in the comments section.

A bientot!
