The new and much better Authority Magnet Co. is finally here!!
The agency revamp was long overdue, tons of client requests and promises of this happening sooner but getting delayed by one reason or another.
When you are running multiple portfolios and fulfilling tons of link orders, you really do not have a lot of time left on your hand to invest in new avenues of the business.
On top of that, we learned the hard way the need of having competent developers, ones that actually understand the Agency, SEO and Affiliate Marketing side of the businesses.
We launched an entire WordPress Development arm of our business, but that is a discussion for another day.
Today, the primary purpose of this post is to guide our customers through the changes that are happening, or already happened to be precise.
Let’s get started.
Here are a few things that have changed and the magnitude of changes brought on:
#1. The List is Going Away
If you’re one of the registered customers at AuthorityMagnet.com, then you probably know already that transparency has been the key to us doing business here at Authority Magnet Co.
Our #1 selling point has been to bring you the best links at lowest price in the industry as well as let you view the entire inventory and choose the domains from there based on your requirement.
However, after doing business that way for years, we realized that despite selling a few hundred thousand dollars in links, they always came from a handful of consistent customers only.
So, we surveyed our customers and registered users over a period of few months, and decided that it is probably a good idea to offer a DIY guest posting service over letting the customers worry about selecting sites and stuff. Do not worry though, you will still be approving everything including the websites and content for the guest posts.
Most of the customers simply do not want to deal with the work and logistics involved in going through thousands of websites to simply order a few links.
Apart from that, we also want to protect our inventory while still delivering the best links to our customers.
So going forward, switching to packages and letting our experienced team do everything for you while still keeping you involved at every step is a better business practice in our opinion.
Here are the packages you can choose from:
#2. Introducing VIP Area
We are introducing a new VIP Area, which includes a lot of perks for approved customers.
VIP customers get bulk pricing, discounts and other options like choosing the websites for their orders etc.
VIP customers also have the option to request fresh campaigns without any additional cost to them, but only once they have exhausted all the available opportunities. This option was brought on especially considering some of our top customers order hundreds of links in the same niche/website.
The VIP area is available to:
- Existing customers who have spent atleast $500 with us in the last 6 months.
- New customers who spend atleast $500 with us.
Existing customers that qualify should already have the access, if you are an existing customer and think there is a mistake, you can write to us through the contact page. New customers can use the application form on this page.
In simple terms, the VIP services are meant for those who are looking to:
- Replace their in-house outreach team with easier and faster service while still paying the same cost.
- Fulfill a high volume backlink need to compete in difficult niches.
- Sell backlinks to clients without worrying about fulfillment.
The VIP area will remain exclusive only to customers that qualify, for the time being.
However, I am considering introducing a plan especially targeted towards agencies, who can pay $500 and the entire amount will be credited to their account which they can use for purchases.
I have also considered introducing a monthly access fee, again credited back to the users.
However, there still isn’t any decision on them.
#3. SPP.io For Order Management
We had a custom solution built with WooCommerce for order placement and management.
While WooCommerce is not the most robust platform for selling digital services, and project management for those services as well as client communication, it fits our needs perfectly fine.
But we always had customers request for a better UX for client communication etc. However, due to the nature of our service, WooCommerce or a custom developed platform were the only options available to us.
With this revamp however, this is one thing we were able to fix, the new packages make it perfectly easy for us to use SPP.io for management, and we did just that.
On a side note, with the addition of the development arm, we did discuss building the custom platform again but decided to stick with SPP.io for now.
#4. New Services
We have been testing a range of services on our own & client portfolio, especially the ones that were regularly requested by our clients.
Among these, we are pleased to include the ones that brought us great results over the last one year.
I will be sharing those results soon, as I plan on getting back to blogging, but you can view all the services that we offer now on the SEO Services page.
Here is a list of services also that you can quickly check out:
Pay As You Go Services
Apart from this, we currently also manage complete affiliate and content website portfolios for a few private clients. The overall worth of the portfolio managed by us is in excess of $1M as of now. While we aren’t actively looking for a lot of portfolio clients, we are always open discussing the proposition with clients who are looking for a solution and own multiple websites.
Okay, I think that pretty much sums it up for things on the business side and now let’s address some questions that we were frequently asked.
Okay, with the business updates taken care of above, here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions by our clients about the changes.
Would we be adding more services soon?
No, I do not plan on adding more services anytime soon. We have an in-house outreach link building team, a content writing team, a development team and a team of VAs to help us manage our operations and client portfolios.
I see the future in maintaining and growing in the same direction, as I see a huge room for growth in the current services that we are offering to our clients.
This is also better from a business point of view, because for these services, we already have an in-house team and a process to efficiently deliver the best services to our clients.
Introducing a new service means building a new team and process exclusively for the service, and apart from the logistics of it, it could also take away focus from our services. Which we would hate to see happening.
Can I get VIP access without $500 spend?
No, we will be keeping it limited to qualified customers only at the moment and unless you are qualified based on our requirements, we won’t be able to consider your request.
Like I mentioned above, I plan on introducing some more options for the VIP area access, but again those are not decided just yet.
I haven’t spent anything in the last 6 months, but I was a customer before that, do I still qualify?
While we plan on keeping it limited to only to the active customers of the last 6 months, if you have been an active customer in the past, we may still consider your request.
Send through your request via the application form on the VIP area page and we will review your request.
I would personally be getting back to blogging and after debating with myself about starting a personal blog vs. writing an agency blog, I chose to go ahead with the latter.
I am not sure how many posts can I write per month, so at the moment I would like to dedicate that time to Authority Magnet Blog and drop some cool nuggets for our readers.
That would be it.
Let me know in comments what you think of the new platform.
Oh, and if you made it till here, here is a massive 25% discount coupon that is applicable on all our products and valid till the next Monday:
It doesn’t gets better than a 25% discount on already industry best prices, does it?
*The discount isn’t applicable to VIP Members as they have their own discounts available.
Have a good week ahead!
