Watch Me Promote A New Product

Posted In: General Chat 

Hello everyone, and welcome to what is a fairly overdue blog post. Is it just me or does everything start to take twice as long in the run up to Christmas, tasks that should only take me a few hours are taking all day, and tasks that should only take a day are taking a week.

The cold weather doesn’t help either. I’m actually sat here typing this on the laptop whilst resting my icy feet on an electric heater, who says Internet Marketers have it easy!?

Anyway, enough about the cold, I’ll try do a David Blane and put it out of my mind whilst I concentrate on writing this post. I’ll pretend I’m on a beach in Dubai and the sun is shining down on me. (There’s probably a joke in there somewhere but this is a family friendly blog!)

So with my surf shorts twitching in the warm breeze, the sun reflecting off my shades, and with my luxury cocktail in one hand, here we go with todays post.

One thing all Internet Marketers need to be successful is traffic. Without traffic there will be no product sales, no adsense clicks and no newsletter sign ups.

The first part of this blog post was written yesterday. Everything under this note was written today, when I happen to have caught a bit of the man flu, so excuse any grammatical errors, I’m running on cough medicine and paracetamol’s!

There are loads of different methods you can use to generate traffic, someone I was speaking to last week said he could think of 121 different methods. Now I don’t know if I can top that, but I thought I would show you what I’m going to do to (hopefully) generate traffic to an affiliate product that is launching tomorrow.

It all started about 10 days ago when I was interviewed about a certain traffic method that I’ve already mentioned on this blog. The interview is to be included as part of a traffic course that shows you loads of different traffic generation methods.

The creator of the course emailed me a couple of days ago to see if I’d be interested in promoting the product for him. As I was a part of the course (the interview) and I had seen the content, I knew it was a good product so I agreed to promote.

I then thought about what I could do to promote it, after a bit of deliberation I’ve decided this is what I am going to do. So you can take a look in “real time” and see if what I’m doing is going to work!

Before we go on, I should just mention the product is going to launch tomorrow – Thursday 27th November.

Step 1

Date: 26th November
Action: Go to D9 Hosting and purchase a domain name that is similar to the product name.

Step 2

Date 26th November
Action: Create a video that shows people what they are going to get if they decide to purchase the product. The way I’m feeling today though, it’s likely to be a silent video!

Step 3

Date: 26th November
Action: Submit the video to Youtube, Google Video, and other similar video sharing networks.

The video will contain a link to the domain name I purchased in step 1

Step 3

Date: 27th November
Action: Send an email to my email lists, only send to the lists of people that have websites. (Is that you?)

Step 4

Date: 1st December (25 days until Christmas!)
Action: Send a reminder email to the people on my mailing lists that the price will go up by 30% on the 2nd December.

Step 5

Date: 2nd December onwards
Action: If the feedback is good, I’ll add the product to my autoresponder email series, and I’ll make sure my videos continue to get good exposure.

So there you have it, that’s my plan, do you think it will work?

I suppose only time will tell. If you are on my mailing list and have a website, keep an eye out for tomorrows email, you’ll then be able to see the product I’m promoting, and you might be able to see some of my other plans in action!

I’m going to sign off now, and see if I can bring myself to create the video.

Thanks for reading!

    From what you’ve said in your post you only intend to promote using a maximum of 3 methods 😐

    No where near ideal for good exposure so, I hope the yet to be released manual has at least 10 more methods.

    Having said that though, if its a small launch and there aren’t many marketers pushing it then you’ll do well though that will also depend on your social proof.

    I’ll watch the space

    Great post Dan,can’t wait for the video! Sorry to hear you are unwell lets hope you don’t get the full blown Man-Flu (that’s very serious!).

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    @ William, unfortunately there’s only so many things you can do in a day 😉

    The actual course has a lot more than 3 methods, the 3 methods are what I’M using, I haven’t counted but the course looks at roughly 25 – 30 different methods.

    Hi Dean,
    Congratulations on your success!

    I’m not sure my promo will do that well today, 2 hours after I sent the mail I realized I hadn’t actually used my affiliate link – no wonder I hadn’t made any sales…DOH!!
