This Is Such A Screwy Business

by 9 comments
I stopped promoting my Diceology product. I wasn't getting anywhere with
ALL my efforts. I just chalked it up to a lost cause and moved on. I stopped
pimping for affiliates, contacting web sites, writing articles, updating my
Squidoo lenses, the whole thing. Just shut it all down.

The sales are starting to come in. I'm doing nothing and the sales are coming
in. Granted, I put in an enormous amount of work into this months ago, but
nothing in ages.

But there is the interesting thing I have noticed. ALL the sales are coming
from foreign countries like India, Brazil, France, and so on.

Could it be that this kind of product just doesn't appeal to English speaking
countries? I would have never thought it but the stats are mind boggling.
Not ONE US or United Kingdom or even Canadian sale. And India is the big

Just goes to show you what a screwy business this is. You never know
where your sales are going to come from or when you're going to get them.

    Sounds like the SE's finally kicked in for you Steve.

    That's great good to hear! At least you'll finally feel like you've been compensated for the time and effort that you put into this project. Or at the least partially anyways. LOL

      It sounds like your Diceology may appeal to the more spiritual related to countries.

      Well now that you know your demographics better maybe you can hone in on that aspect?

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    There is a fine line between being respectful and offensive to one's point of view and in advertisement it can either lead to effective marketing or a lot of trouble. As they say that one man's controversial idea is another man's offensive idea. Sometimes resorting to provocative campaigns are totally worthwhile if they help you to increase your sales and establish a sustainable brand name in the market. But does that only work for big corporations like Apple, Coca-cola to take risks like these? Can small brands or startups consider such tactics for their advertisement plan as well without destroying their amateur brand legacy? These intriguing questions always pop up in my mind and I think that whether is it a good idea to create advertisements that are beautiful and genuine to attract customers which has a greater possibility of going flat with minimum response from the market or to go for calculated controversial ad campaign against your competitor to gain a lot of public attention?

    I scour the WaFo to see if there are any unique methods, etc. that maybe I haven't thought of. Sometimes there are! But one thing that I haven't seen much of is posts that will bring you BACK TO THE BASICS. No matter WHAT level of knowledge you think you are at... if you are not getting clients consistently and bringing home paychecks... then you need to re-gather.
