The Problem Isn't Always Your Copy

3 replies
A couple months ago I launched off a website selling a list of wholesale sources. It was your typical sales page. Nothing special. After a couple of weeks of constant promotion I didn't receive a single sale. Just a bunch of visitors. I couldn't figure out what the problem was so I asked a few people to critique my copy. Some people told me that the copy was amateurish and that I should hire a professional copywriter. Others said it was my website. A few people even said that I my website looked like a scam website. Since I disagreed with all of those critiques I decided to try selling the wholesale list on Ebay with the exact same copy. Within 24 hours I made 2 sales. After that the sales just kept on coming in. As it turns out my copy DOES SELL. The real problem that many people didn't realize is that I wasn't targeting the RIGHT PEOPLE. And the right people are people who are actually searching for EXACTLY what you're offering. If your website isn't selling that could be the problem that you're having.

    Greg, I made similar experiences when I started out.

    Until one day I discovered what the pros call "message to market match".

    Happy to see you now are shooting fish in a barrel too
