How to get 1 sale per day starting today?!

by Alex Sol 9 replies
Ok, guyz and gulz!

I am not a big super hot known IM guru... Many people know OF me on a few IM forums... But my name is not known (yet). So, getting IM related sales isn't as easy for me!

Well, here comes my question! What would YOU do, to start making at least 1 sale per day in the IM niche? As an affiliate or as a publisher - your choice!

I am comfortable with most tools and techniques, I also have an AWEBER account - and getting 10-20 daily subscribers (IM Newbies )... So, spill your beans!

    Video marketing, article marketing to a squeeze page with a lengthy follow-up with additional articles littered with cloaked affiliate links.

        If you're getting 10-20 subscribers a day do this:

        1. Make some kind of offer on the page you redirect people to immediately after they enter their name and email address.

        2. Make some kind of offer on the page you redirect people to when they confirm their email address.

        If both offers are low priced (under say $20) and have good conversion rates you should make 5% conversions on the people signing up to your list so that's pretty close to your one sale a day.

        Kindest regards,

          Awesome advice!

          Now, I am averaging more than 1 sale per day in a few different NON IM related niches... But IM seems a bit harder...

            That's interesting, as IM is one of the hungriest niches that you could find.

            The hunger will never stop because businesses will always need to make money regardless if they're online or off-line.

            You're getting some traffic, and you're getting some subscribers, now it's time to play around and do some testing.

            But when you test something let it run for about a week or so, before you change to your next test. That way it will be easier for you to determine which changes you made have affected your marketing strategy for the better.

              Awesome replies! Thanks so much!..

              I have been promoting 2 different products to my list; 1 as an affiliate and the other product is my own. The conversions are not bad... considering that the only expense is the $20 monthly Aweber fee...

              Anyhow, I just realized that the Thank You page, and the Confirmation page do NOT have anything to offer (actually your replies made me realize this) So here is my idea. I know that to see if it works I will NEED to test it...

              But still, what are your thoughts?

              I will make a little sales page and a video. Telling them how great the product is (that I am an affiliate of)... and it only costs 30$/month! (I get 50%). I will also talk about my product - which is a VIDEO course - at $67! So, I will offer them my product completely FREE is they sign up to my affiliate offer...

              You think this would work>?

          Firstly, have patience. Rome wasn't built in a day, to coin a cliche. The IM niche is incredibly crowded.

          That said, if you have subscribers, you have people who are interested in what you're offering.

          As Andrew said, make offers to your subscribers, but do ensure that these are good offers. If you're promoting an affiliate product, give them a reason to buy from you; offer a bonus.

          A sale a day isn't much, so be patient.

          The more you do, the more subscribers you get, and the more sales you will make.

          Track what you're doing - writing articles, etc, and track your sales. Before you know it, you'll be making five and ten sales a day. :-)

    - After they optin id direct them straight to a cheapish sales page ($7.97 works well for me)

    - and whatever the free gift they get once opting in, id have that same product advertised within the free ebook (if it is an ebook you're offering)

    - Have the URL advertised at the bottom of every autresponder msg you send out

    - Pay a few article writers to write your articles and have your sales page link in your resource box in every article

    - Participate in JV giveaways (offer your free gift and then they will be redirected to your sales page. - you will get a lot of visitors/optins using Giveaways)

    That should be a good start.
