Is Launch Jacking Worth It?

I just received an email from Kelly Felix (Bring The Fresh) promoting Launch Jacking. According to Kelly, the young guy who created Launch Jacking is his student. He joined BringTheFresh community 8 months ago and had raked in $180,000 since. He's going to share how he did that in this new product.

Has anyone bought it?

Is this about promoting IM product launches?

Is there any upsell?

I HATE upsells.... if we don't get the upsell, is the basic or main product alone good enough?

Pls shed some lights here if you have bought the product.

THANKS!

    I am a Btfer full disclosure member and I also received the email. Anything these guys promote is gold. There is one upsell and I took it too. It includes coaching and a "done for you"deal. The main course is worth 10 times the cost so I figure the Platinum membership as gravey.

      Hi Rhino, thanks for sharing... yes, Kelly is unlike other gurus who like to flood your inbox with every single launch out there.

      What is the upsell about? Is it one-time cost or recurring?

      Is the main product limited to promoting ONLY IM product launches?

        Hi -- Just bought Launch Jacking -- without the upsell. I haven't gotten a chance to really check out everything available on the "silver" membership site, yet it does look very promising!

        The very refreshing thing about the upsell is there is only one and ...

        They actually tell you about it on the sales page ... You can view it right above the 3rd from the last "add to cart" button (lots of those LOL) on the sales page -- almost at the bottom.

        The upsell is $199 for 6 months (ouch) for their Launch Jacking Platinum Coaching Club, where they will setup your first site for you, get lots of personal help, plus 8 webinars where you can ask questions and probably other stuff.

        One thing about these guys, they are pretty fast in responding to questions regardless of your "level" -- or that is my experience as a Bring The Fresh member.

          Hmmm! I thought the price was $67 and then $266 a month for six months.

          Please correct me if I am wrong.

            cobwab - I think the Bring the Fresh members are getting a Special Discount on the product and Upsell. So that would be where the price difference is, but I do think you are right about it being $xxx.xx a month for 6 months rather than it being $xxx.xx for 6 months but I am not sure.

              For those of you who think launch jacking isn't reliable enough, you're looking at it the wrong way imo.

              Even if your website only has high traffic the first two weeks during launch, years later it'll still get extremely valuable buyer traffic. Sure, it may not be thousands of hits but a couple hits a day adds up really fast. Now imagine if you had say 50 launch jacking sites, all of which get a measly 3 visitors per day...

              That's a lot of traffic you can funnel to any offer you want...

              Just some food for thought.

                Glad someone caught on. You get the benefit of the instant hit of traffic and commissions plus the small trickles of traffic (buyers traffic) afterward.

              I'm a fd member of btf and I haven't heard about any discount yet although there is a huge forum discussion going on about how much should be charged; from $0 to hundreds.

              Furthermore, I followed the concepts taught in btf for my first launch jacking venture and got mu website on the first page of Google, but that does not mean you will make any money because some of the bonuses being offered are in the stratosphere $70,000 bonus package) and I cannot even come close to matching them so even though my site even had two pages on the first page of google, I have not made any money, yet.

              Dan Brock has good advice. Create many launch jacking projects.

                This is just an idea that may work but have you thought about JV with somebody who can offer bigger bonuses. So basically you would take care of the site getting ranked and perhaps other sources of traffic and then the JV or JV's provide a high value bonus.

                Also while you may not make sales right away which I know is the goal but I would imagine that within the next 3 to 12 months that you are going to get some sales because traffic will still keep coming in.

            He mentioned that in the fast start guide. However, for most part, this course mainly about taking part in the IM product launch, similar to Google Sniper. The case studies and the Launch Jacking calendar is focusing on the IM Niche.

              Very interesting... how do we write reviews for new physical product launches if we haven't used them?

              I plan to buy Launch Jacking but haven't bought it yet because I have other project at hand that I want to complete first. But I believe that promoting new product launches can produce good income for us if done right!

        Yes, how to take advantage of the buzz that happens on a product launch. You piggy back on the wave of interest and take advantage of the interest in the product.

    Drawbacks to launch jacking in general:

    1) The launch can fail.
    2) The launch traffic and hype is short-lived.
    3) A bad launch reputation can ruin yours.
    4) They kill the affiliate program. And your sales.
    5) They never pay out.

    This business model carries too much risk for me. Full launch jacking review here.

      This technique is for " fast Money " ( if you can even say it fast money)... lj is not a long term tactic... there's many possibilities..

      you can start with lj then build your list through it - then promote more products on your list, then create your own product and sell more.

        Hey Guys:

        First of, I just wanted to say I appreciate your comments/concerns. I think it's very valid, specially when people are deciding wether this program is good for them.

        Here is a couple of answers to questions I've seen on this thread:

        1. This course is about promoting product launches. And that is not only for IM products. I actually cover how to promote products from IM, to Forex, Amazon launches, Dating, Self Improvement, and more. I've done all of them. I just happen to like the IM Niche more, so I talk a lot about it.

        2. Currently the calendar is only about IM products. But, we are working on putting products from other markets, such as Forex, Self Improvement, & Amazon products. It will take us a few days/weeks to do this .

        3. About this technique being short-term/only for easy money. Well, I guess it depends where you're coming from. If you only put up 1 blog, and once you make money you never put up another blog, or promote another launch, then of course you will most likely not make more money. But if you follow the method, both to put up your first blog, and also continue putting up more blogs (or just more offers as I teach you inside), you can continue profiting from this for as long as product launches exist.

        I've personally been doing this for over 9 months now, and still continue to do it, and it works almost every time.

        In terms of the guy who is talking about drawbacks, well, obviously there are drawbacks in every business model. If there were never any drawbacks, I guess 99% of the population would be rich, and it wouldn't be the other way around.

        But, this is a very valid and easy to follow system, and inside the training I have put a lot of energy and effort to be as real as possible, teaching the method, exposing my site, and giving all of my strategy. And, as opossed to what most "Gurus" like to do this days, I actually use the method, and this is the method that has been giving me all the money from the proof, both for me and my clients.

        Heck, we keep getting emails from success stories, even as we were filming some of the prelaunch content .

        I apreciate the time of the people reading this thread, so if you have any more questions let me know. I'll do my best to answer, as you guys might notice, we are very busy making sure everyone is happy inside the training .

        Regards,

        Rick

          Hi Rick,

          Thanks for chiming in...

          Can I ask you questions....

          For the product launch, do you recommend us to buy a domain for each product launch? Or just set up ONE blog for each niche.

          For example, one blog focusing on IM product launch. One focusing on Self-development, one for forex, and so on...

          Which one is better?

          Also, if I only buy the main product (without the upsell), do I get the full formula or method? Or you're hiding some secrets in the upsell?

          Pls advise....

          Thanks!

            Hey Everyone:

            I want to thank again people for their comments/concerns/questions. The feedback we're getting has helped us create even more value for our current members, and if you're a current member, you already recieved an email today talking about all of the updates we have on the way .

            Answers to Questions:

            @wrays: Am I hiding stuff on the upsell? The answer is no, we're trying to be as ethical as possible in our marketing, as well as in our training. Everyone inside actually gets my personal email adress, and customers just send me questions every day. The idea of the upsell (think of it more like an upgrade ) is that you get additional training, and some more hand holding. Essentially everyone can succeed with any level.

            @Marlon: I appreciate your possitive attitude. I think that kind of thinking is exactly what differentiates people that could succeed at LJ and people that couldn't.

            @Kelly: Your input is always appreciated . Actually, I remember seeing one of your BTF videos a while back, and thinking that was just a smart way to look at things.

            @Tim: I appreciate your great input. Yes, I'm very proud to be a partner with Mike & Kelly, and yes, the only way they would be involved is if this was as legit as it gets.

            @Dan: Glad to see you here man! Didn't knew you liked to hang out at the WF. Your opinion is very well valued as always.

            @Cobwat: The normal price is $67 Silver Membership & $265 X 6 months for Platinum Membership. There is a special discount inside BTF, I think Kelly has send you that, and you can always just ask them about it they'll gladly point you to it.

            @Neodarth: Well, obviously in this case you do need to do some research about the launch you're going to promote. In my opinion, while there are many, and I mean many "scammy" products being launched, for every "scammy product" there is at least 1 legit. I've done over 130 different launch promotions, and have never had a problem with this, and the reason is because if you use a little bit of common sense, combined with research, it's not that hard to know wether the product is a scam.

            I mean, whenever I see a $37 product that promises hundreds of K per month I get suspicious. Whenever I see products from a certain group I get suspicious.

            Does this mean you will never get refunds, no. But I don't think refunds are a huge problem, not more than normal affiliate marketing, or marketing for that matter.

            @Jesus Perez: Well, yeah, obviously. There are many many drawbacks to lauch jacking, and things that go wrong. But I've had success with this, and so have had many of our clients. In fact, from the day we opened we have recieved more than 10 new success stories, on top of all of the ones we already had. So, obviously there are drawbacks, but is it possible, absolutely yes.

            @Btreski: Thanks for your input. That's exactly how I like to think about this .

            @Amelle: Inside BTF you get a brief overview of how LJ works. You get a couple of interviews, and a explanation. That can be enough and has been enough for many people, we have had many success stories from this. What you get inside LJ is my personal method, step by step, nothing held back of how I do it. So, essentially the only person that can answer that is you . If you already are finding success at IM, or even at LJ, then you might not need it. If you wanna give this whole LJ thing a try, and want to learn from someone that has done it, then you are welcome to join.

            @Simon: I think people can sometimes underestimate how powerful this can be . It can put you and your business in a whole new level.

            I appreciate the questions from everyone, if you have some more questions let me know, you can always send me a PM. I might take a little while to answer, but I'll do that as soon as possible.

            Regards,

            Rick

      Yes, all that is very true. That's why you need Rick and Mike's approach which eliminates those shortfallings.

    I don't usually review im products anymore but this one caught my eye.

    To be honest I didn't know if I should post this or not but I
    just wanted to share some light on the subject because I was
    doing "launch jacking" back in 2004 way before any of the
    gurus.

    This is the brutal truth and fans of the Launch Jacking product
    will probably hate me for this.

    I think you should read this post before you consider buying Launch
    Jacking or any other product on promoting product launches
    for that matter.

    Hi,

    I read a few of the comments and blog posts here and in the
    links.

    I just disagree that the vast majority of launch products
    are scams. My gosh. You've been reading Salty WAY too much.

    Now, if you're talking about CB products, I could see that. Although
    I've bought several recently that were GREAT products like Copy
    Paste Traffic and Tim Bekker's autoresponder code.

    I spend $30,000 to $40,000 a year on products. Some of it is wasted
    but there also many really great products. I only WISH I had this stuff
    to learn from years ago.

    I mean, come on man, imagine that ALL you had to learn from was:

    Tested Advertising Methods
    A few Gary Halbert Letters
    One or two Dan Kennedy books
    The Robert Collier lettterbook
    A Claude Hopkins book

    Now TELL ME the products today suck. They are so awesome. I
    had NOTHING to teach me the formula for writing a sales letter
    or about anything else that was halfway specific.

    Now, I DO have an issue with some of the sales letters. But that
    is totally different from saying almost all products are trash.

    I couldn't disagree more.

    Now, on the Launch Jacking thing, just because it USED to be
    easier and make more than it does now, doesn't mean it isn't
    GREAT for someone who WANTS to make $500 and hasn't
    yet.

    I know people who would salivate to make $250.

    I think launch jacking is totally legit, although it may not be
    "easy."

    So?

    Easy is relative. My dad was raised on a farm where a tornado
    blew down the farm.

    A disease killed the cattle.

    A fire burned down the house.

    His father went blind.

    NOW honestly, THAT is hard.

    Throwing up some blogs and backlinks?

    That ain't hard.

    You sit at your computer at Starbucks man.

    I haven't bought the product in specific. I'm a product
    creator not an affiliate.

    But for someone looking to mkae a few bucks, it's all good.

      Hi Marlon.

      Yes you make a good point that not all IM products are
      scams.

      Some of them are pretty good but the thing is how
      can you separate the good from the bad unless you
      buy them?

      With Launch jacking you're essentially promoting
      everything that comes out to try and make as
      much money as possible.

      And I think we can all agree that the majority of these
      products released do suck. So promoting these products
      will not only help the "scammers" but hurt the people
      that fell for your "review".

      And that is the problem.

      I would suggest that people who do launch jacking
      stay away from IM products unless they've bought
      the product and can give an honest review.

      Computer games are good to get into. Or books, or cds etc.

      Find out when a new PS3 etc game is coming out
      and go for "buy game name" etc. This way you
      can feel comfortable you're not scamming someone.

      Use your imagination.

      Launch Jacking is simple.

      Find keyword - create site- build backlinks - Profit?

      Do you really need to spend money to learn how to do that?

      There's so much free info on the subject out there anyway.
      On this forum alone there's a wealth of information.

        Most products are a collaboration of info that is scattered and freely available on the net. You are simply paying for organization, a blueprint to follow, and removal of the 99.9% of information you should ignore. That and the product owners own unique twist on how to use the information to be successful sooner than later.

        That's what an info product is.

        If it were easy to find out Rick's strategy for free, wouldnt everyone here have made thousands of dollars already doing launch jacking like Rick?

        I personally think SEO is easy. And the way to be successful at it is scattered all over for free as well. Yet people pay me every day to show them step by step how it works, so they don't burn their eyes out reading 67,000 forum posts, hoping to find the right one.

        And my customers get detailed walkthrus of my own sites, how I get them ranked, and how I monetize them. Same thing with Rick's course.

        Most people aren't gonna find that info for free anywhere.

          Kelly to an extent yes I agree that your product will make it easier
          for people to learn the information instead of scouring around the
          net.

          And I also said that I expect your product to be a good solid
          product on the topic of promoting product launches.

          The rest of my post was not necessarily there to slag off your
          product but my opinion on promoting product launches in general.

          But let's say that you get 5,000+ people buy your product.

          Can they all make money?

          Let's be honest. NO.

          There's only 10 spots on the first page of Google
          and only the top 3 are going to get the majority of
          traffic.

          Now on top of the 5,000+ of your customers, They're
          going to be competing against the other hundreds or
          thousands that are already doing Launch Jacking.

          Most of your customers will probably try to promote
          IM product launches so are they really going to make
          any money?

          5,000+ people going for the top 3 spots?

          And yes there are other markets out there
          with product launches happening.

          But then people like myself that have been doing
          this for a long time will also know about these
          launches and again there's only 10 spots on the
          front page of Google.

          All I'm saying here is that Launch Jacking can be very
          hit and miss especially now it's become so popular.

          And I'll outright say that the vast majority of your
          customers wont make any money.

          Also Kelly I'd be interested to know if there is any
          information in your product on the subject of ethics
          on promoting these garbage IM products?

          Thanks.

            Let's face the facts the vast majority of IM will not even do anything other than look at the product to begin with. Sorry I hope that does not offend anyone but the truth is most people do not TAKE ACTION.

            So considering that 50% of the people who purchase most likely won't do anything with what they learned you are now going to go up against the other 50% then when you consider that most likely 35% to 40% of those people will take action but only for a short time until the next product comes out and instead of Launch Jacking it they buy the product and then the next product, etc.

            Now you are going up against what ever is left and with the wide range of Clickbank products that are coming out each and every week, there should be no problem with getting ranked. I have done it myself several times.

            Even if you are not in the Top 3 if it is a fairly popular product there will be more than enough people searching for reviews, bonuses, and under other various terms that they will come to your site, as a matter of fact I am still making regular sales on a product that was launched well over a year ago. So all in all it is a good product.

            As I said before it is a Clickbank product so there is very little risk in buying the product to begin with.

              So if you know that people aren't going to take any action
              then why are you recommending they buy it?

              And there is already a lot of competition so even if 10% were
              to take action that's still an extra 10% more people to the
              number that are already doing it.

              All I'm saying is that Launch Jacking is not as easy as it
              seems especially with the influx of new people trying to
              get in on it with all these products teaching how to do it.

              Newbies to promoting product launches will get slaughtered
              by the more experienced competition. It's as simple as that.

            I totally agree with what you're saying here, as far as everyone promoting the same IM launches. If everyone promotes the same stuff, then it would be tough. But there are tons of products launching all the time.

            And, of course we recommend promoting physical products, and intangible non-clickbank products and services as well, of which there are literally hundreds of thousands to choose from every year.

            We use the word "launch", but it basically means any new product to hit the market, in any industry. The key is to be forward thinking.

            And while we personally only choose to promote those products that we trust to provide good value, its ultimately on the individual to decide which ones they feel are "ethical" or not.

            BTFers definitely know where I stand on this stuff. That's why we rarely ever promote anything unless we've thoroughly investigated it, and/or we're providing a ridiculous bonus that makes it a no-lose situation, even if we get burned by the product creator.

            Can they all make money? Yes.

            Will they all make money? No.

            It depends on how dedicated & persistent you are, and sometimes being a little lucky helps as well. We get success stories every single day.

            BTW, just to clarify, this is Rick's baby. But we did do our best to consult him and help get the word out, and we think he's done a great job.

              Kelly I agree with you about how Launch Jacking could be used to a new stereo that is coming out and obviously the person who is doing the Launch Jacking could be buying that particular model in the .com, .net, and .org domains as well as that model plus review.com, etc.

              There is no doubt that people are making money Launch Jacking, congrats to Rick on his product and I have no doubt that if someone buys this product, takes action, learns from their mistakes and what they do right along the way, and stick with it will make a lot of money.

    If Mike Long or Kelly Felix are involved with a project then it is in my opinion GUARANTEED to be good because so far I have never bought a product from them I didn't like.

    My first introduction into Internet Marketing was with the Rich Jerk and in my opinion there are still some very good lessons that can be learned from that product as well especially for the price.

    Is Launch Jacking worth it, in my opinion if you are not making a satisfactory income online then it certainly is because you will learn from someone who has been exactly where you are and how he has been able to earn very good money online and then with Mike Long being a part of the launch you are going to get a IM veteran who knows how to over deliver just like he and Kelly Felix did with Bring the Fresh.

    Tim


    P.S. Besides it is a Clickbank product you really have nothing to lose, just make sure to TAKE ACTION and I am sure that you will find the product is well worth the price you paid for it.

    Then I might as well not recommend any product at all, because regardless of the IM product people do not like to TAKE ACTION, if I think a product is good I recommend what the person does after they buy the product is up too them.

    Getting SMASHED by the competition is part of the learning process, that is not to say that they will but if they do then I they can learn from what they did right or wrong.

    I can tell you this the person who buys Launch Jacking and takes action, will have a much higher success rate than the person who doesn't and still takes action. Bottom line it is a good product and as a matter of fact with just a few affiliate sales they will be right back to even.

      Hey guys, thank you all for sharing... I think I will go and grab it and learn how to launch jacking...

      I agree that most people who buy info-product don't take action but they're still buying.... it's the same as any other business... I invest in the stock market and a lot of my friends and encounters always ask... how do you make money investing in the stock market?

      When I tell them that I just follow a system that I trust and have been using for years... as long as I have the discipline to follow the rules set forth by the system and don't use my own jugdement, I will be fine... but of course I also experience losses... everyone investing in the stock market will experience losses... but by following the system... when you suffer a loss it's a small loss... but when you profit, it's a big profit... so basically the system help you to lose small and earn big...

      It's that simple really... and when they ask me more technical questions like how to analyze the bull market, stock prices and interpret complicated charts... I look at them with a 'blank' face... and say... I have no freaking idea... the system never teaches me how to do that :confused:

      Then they think that all this is just 'BS' and 'too good to be true'...

      Well... it's strange that most people think that to make money in the stock market you need to understand the complicated stuff.... sigh...

      I think internet marketing is also the same thing.

        Yeah the truth is SEO, and Internet Marketing in general are very simple the hard part is TAKING ACTION. If you get the basics down you just have to slightly change them for ebb and flow of things but one of the things that people do so often is over complicate internet marketing.

        As I said before anything that Mike Long is a part of is pretty much guaranteed to be good. He is an absolute pro and so is Kelly Felix. Something that I think is really AWESOME about this product and that I really have not heard to many people discuss is how cool is it that 2 Internet Marketing Legends took a total newbie who was willing to learn, contribute, and take action, and help him launch a product.

        I think for anyone who is struggling should be inspired by Rick's story of how am average guy was able to make as much money as he has in such a short amount of time, because if he can do it so can anyone else who is currently not earning money online.

    Has anyone bought it?

    Is this about promoting IM product launches?

    Is there any upsell?

    I HATE upsells.... if we don't get the upsell, is the basic or main product alone good enough?

    Pls shed some lights here if you have bought the product.

    THANKS!
    There is no upsell.

    Daniel - that is so true I have some sites on various products from way back still making sales here and there and as I said I have a review of an IM product from about a year ago that I still make regular sales on at least 1 sale every 2 to 4 weeks.

      I think that a lot of folks are heading in the wrong direction or thinking about Launch Jacking all wrong. Sure, it can be used to make some quick cash off of advertised IM product launches. Limiting thinking is getting in your way!

      I really don't work in the IM niche but I have seen the power in being the first to review a product outside of the IM niche and how much revenue this can generate over a year and beyond. You can tell someone this... you can tell a newbie this but unless they are shown step by step and they have a vested interest in taking action (paying for a product like Launch Jacking) this knowledge is probably just going to sit there in their head instead of being a "brilliant idea" that they feel motivated to take action on.

    I have my reserves now with all those sniper sites, ok I know that it can be really profitable and you can leverage of the buyer rush of the launch... but...

    From a while now there has been so many crappy launches with controversial and sometimes unethical blind copies that make you think if its worth to risk your reputation (even if is a small one) putting your name on those sniper sites.

    Sometime ago I fell for that tendency and promote Auto Traffic Avalanche in a sniper review site, I had no clue what was all about with the product and the affiliate resources didn't give any hint either.

    When finally ATA went live I purchased and realize what was about and have to put a disclosure in the site before take it down. From the twenty or so sales that I made I get like a 90% refund, I have to add an additional bonuses to those who didn't refund to clean up a little bit my name.

    I wonder what would it happened if I was aim to snipe a product like Stripper down profit...

    Guess the use of pen names could be a safe way to go... or... stick to the most reputable names.

    Rick, I like the sound of your product but for those that have Bring the Fresh, Launch Jacking is taught there so does your course have a lot more to teach than what is taught in Bring the Fresh? Thanks.

              S'alright... now apologize to the people that you tried to hurt here and all will be forgiven LOL!

              Honestly man... I do think that it goes beyond someone just trying to save the sale and I would encourage you to ride it out a little bit. I didn't make a penny off of this sale but I know that I've been through some coaching and I wanted to quit because I was stepping outside the box... I was being forced to do things that were outside my comfort zone. My routine was altered and I was unsure if I could do what was asked of me. I doubted that I would be successful. This was some product creation coaching.

              Anyhow, the guy that was coaching me took me aside on Skype and talked to me for like an hour... and basically kicked my ass... in a nice way. Made me see that what I was doing was very limiting and that if I had dreams I needed to stretch myself.

              Long story short, my business has doubled and I make time to try new things now. Do it!!! It doesn't matter if it's this coaching or learning a new way to drive traffic or step out and do product creation or a clever way to do offline marketing or whatever.

              Also, sorry if I came off harsh but I am sure that if you really just want a refund that they will give it to you. But think about it, ok?

    I found that the problem with product launches is that you are never quite sure what you are promoting until it is released. I got my fingers burnt with Get FB Ads Free and spend a huge amount of time working on my site and got it to #1, #3 and #5 for the main search terms, but because it was a rubbish product, I had to to say so on my site and therefore made nothing from it (I did promote GSniper on there instead, as that is what I had used to build the site, but obviously didn't convert as well because that was not what people were looking for.)

    Anyway my point is, how can you be sure that the product you are promoting is decent? I suppose you can go on previous reputation of the people launching the product, but even then can you be sure and often you are not able to get your hands on a review copy up until the last minute, if at all. By which time you have already put all the hard work in.

    Any thoughts?

    I am a newbie and probably a bit down on product launches after my experience, so would like to be tempted to try again, possibly!!?!!

      If a product sucks - say it sucks, and do the following:

      1. Promote a "similar" product that is good in it's place
      2. think of a reason for your visitors to opt-in

      As someone that does quite a bit of this, I can tell you that it isn't uncommon to get 300+ opt-ins a day for a few days straight on a launch where the product is horrible.

        Jeremy just offered some great advice.

        Unfortunately, most people in the IM niche are "opportunity seekers" and not "strategic entrepreneurs." The problem is not Launch Jacking. The problem is how most people utilize Launch Jacking. My take is that most people get involved in Launch Jacking simply to make some quick cash. They are opportunity seekers looking for a money maker. The problem is that they are not building a business. They are not thinking strategically.

        Turn your focus away from "making money" and start focusing on "building a business." If you want long-term, lasting success, you are not going to get by chasing opportunities. You are going to get it by building a real, legitimate business where you serve a group of people.

        And as Jeremy mentioned above, you can leverage the buzz of a launch by educating your audience on what the product is all about -- whether the product is good or completely worthless. This gives you a great opportunity to add value to the market, build your brand, and add leads to your list.

        That's thinking like a strategic entrepreneur.

        BINGO! i'm doing the exact same thing on a blog where i'm comparing 2 products i've used. 1 sucks and has a big name while the other doesn't. why am i talking about a crappy product on my blog? becuz it gets a sh*t ton of searches in google monthly. i'm using the big name product to get the traffic to my site, while telling it sucks and why i think it sucks and why lesser known product b is cheaper and better. here's the flip side, if some hard headed jackass buys the big name product, i get paid off his sale while still getting commissions on the other better product. trust and believe i WILL be using this strategy for other products. of course i'll be giving my true opinion. if both products are good i'll say that. it's all on my opinion and review of each product

          I didn't buy it.

          I created my own launch jacking website.

          It got about 300 hits. No sales.

          I was #1 on Google's first page for some of my keywords. Others hit in the first 5 on page 1.

          Didn't matter.

          Some offered bonuses they claimed worth $70K.

          Better luck next time.

          Now THAT is a good strategy, imo. The typical launch jacking isn't going to work for most people - a few will come out winners, but that's it - but using the launch to do a comparison and promotion of one or two other products is a great technique that will pay off, mainly because it seems like a more trustworthy review, and secondly because the other products being chosen over the launch product don't necessarily need a bunch of bonuses added to it/them to make the sale.

          [old post, I know, but since someone bumped it and people are going to read it again, just throwing in my 2 cents on launch jacking]

    I just saw this thread. Like at least one other poster here I have been doing this (and showing it to others) for years.

    There are some hints and techniques that, if contained in the training, are going to be worthwhile. It was never quite as easy as just whacking out a couple of sites.

    It is certainly true that competition has increased in this field but I still make money from product launches that I worked on 4 years ago. But I have largely drawn back from this model - albeit that I am working on one at the moment that is a biggy and will be ongoing.

    I would advise anyone doing this to stay away from anything that they would not buy and use themselves. That can be hard as one often does not know what is coming up before the launch but I only ever promoted products where I knew what was coming up and knew the product/service already. There are ways of getting this info - the online world is not far different from the real world here! Get to know people, build relationships and trust and good stuff happens!

    I also took great care about the kind of products I promoted - they had to be relatively expensive (but offering good value to those who would use them!) be capable of doing a 'real' job not some kind of trifle, trick or loophole and usually, but not always, involve a recurring payment.

    How much is this stuff worth paying for?
    I dunno, I learned to do what I do from books that one can get from a library for free. The methods of implementing online? Well, you know how to make a WordPress blog and promote it? (or at least where to get the free training stuff to teach you!)

    So, the answer is 'not very much' except for time and application.

    Remember, the basic concept of this technique is this:
    Answer the questions about the product/service that are not being answered elsewhere so that people will leave your page reassured and ready to buy!

    That's it. The secret!
