Having Fun Copywriting

7 replies
I just finished my first info product, let me say Way more work then I ever imagined in the beginning (I admit I was suckered in by an infoproduct about writing infoproducts )

I'm brand new to internet marketing so I'm focused on learning how all this stuff works more than making money. my page has been up about 5 days with no conversions (about 100 visits)

So far I am enjoying this little adventure into the internet marketing realm there seems to be some really great talent on the warrior forums to! I am starting to get overwhelmed with information though.

My question is where do I start, this seems really advanced to me. I don't care to pay for a product, but there is SO many out there I don't know what's legit and whats bogus. My budget is also pretty small (student)

Thanks in advance for the advice guys, after I get everything really well streamlined I will post a link to the site for some more refined advice.

  • Glad you're enjoying your adventure on the incredible interweb.

    With any Ad - newspaper, magazine, TV, radio, poster, sticker, flyer or website you need THE key ingredient.

    The right people need to see the f****** thing (obviously on the radio it's best if they listen).

    100 passers by is not enough even to give you a glimmer of data (apart from the fact you had 100 visitors).

    You need thousands and thousands X constantly. And they must always be targeted.

    So, if you are happy with your product/service, the copy is ace and the offer is irresistible.

    Discover all you can about building traffic.

    Then you'll start seeing the results.

    Expanding on what Steve said, be sure to study your key market demographic.

    It sounds like a no-brainer, but make sure you're streaming your marketing influence to the right people (rather than a targeted spray of the most people).

    Learn everything you can about the people you're hoping to sell to; familiarize yourself with their frustrations and position your business as the solution to those frustrations.

    Good luck.

    If you don't care to pay for a product, that speaks to your level of commitment.

    Surely you can buy a couple $10 books, no?

    Start off with "Hey Whipple, Squeeze This!"... or "Cashvertising"... or "What to expect when you're expecting"... or Dan Kennedy's "The Ultimate Sales Letter"...

      May I ask you a question?

      How much are you paying now to be a student? How much per semester? How long will it be until your degree makes you $?

      If you want to make $ now, then investing in the knowledge you need to make $ now would be a smart investment, right?

    Welcome to the awesome world of Internet Marketing!

    What you need to do now that you have an info product to sell - is capture targeted leads by offering a teasing report about your ebook.

    Then send emails about the complete ebook to that list!

    You want to start building an email list. So work on creating a nice and powerful squeeze page - make a free report about your ebook and give that away for free as an incentive for people to give you their email address.

    You can also have the ebook for sale in the back end - right after they download the free report.

    Once you have a good squeeze page and everything else in place - it is time to learn internet marketing strategies to drive targeted traffic to your squeeze page/s.

    Implement internet marketing strategies on a daily basis. You can do article marketing, video marketing, social media marketing, forum marketing, content marketing, file-sharing sites marketing, SEO, paid traffic, etc

    The key will be in the consistency. You can't expect to get good results overnight ... just concentrate on doing the necessary marketing work on a daily basis and only look at your stats at the end of the week.

    You want to also test things out to learn what works best and what does not.

    Just take massive action with everything you learn.

    The internet marketing education is not complicated and the concepts are very simple - so it is a matter learning and taking massive action!

    I hope this helps!

    I wish you the best of the best!

    At the beginning, I thought making money online with a blog was super super hard. Not anymore. Learn the art of making money online blogging - step by step - HERE.

    Willybill... I just finished my first product as well! It was hard work but totally enjoyable! The great thing about it is that you are putting out a quality product which is what counts. So many people in the internet marketing business think about the numbers and not the quality. Glad you value quality!
