I have to launch a product in 4 days. Help needed......

by Mohammad Afaq 21 replies
Hey Warriors.

I know it may sound crazy and unrealistic but yeah I have only four days and I have to launch a product.

I have spent about 1 year and a month online and I am not doing really good and this year when I go back to school I will be a senior. My mom told me I need to be serious about my studies because it's my senior year and I should leave this online stuff. I told her I can make money online but she said that if you can make a decent money before school starts. Now I only have four days left.

At first I was not ready to do this but now I think it could be a great experiment and I could do a case study on it. Now I need you help. Can you guys please tell me what topic I should launch a product on and what kind of product it should be.

Plus, if you have any other suggestions on how I can make money in this small period of time please keep em coming.

    I think you should have a look round here at some popular threads in the warrior special offers part and see what's doing well, then see if you can do something along the same lines but BETTER!

    If you're any good at doing graphics, try that or some other service?

    The word 'Launch' can mean a few different things. So you don't have a product?? Wow, you haven't given yourself much time.

    I would go Private Label product and change the content in create something new. On the other hand, you may be best to promote other peoples products and create income that way. Check out Digital Publishing | Product Creation | Self Published on researching and picking a niche,

    Offer your services for free to start off with for the first ten customers, as long as your post count is above 30, and the offer is good, it doesn't matter if you have no feedback, people will drop back in and give you some!

    Here's a quick idea for you:

    Offer a free photo touch up service, where you take warrior members photo's and make them look high quality, you know what i mean..those cool photoshop tricks you can do to make images stand out more?

    Having a high quality professional image of yourself is a must when you are selling a product or service, and can increase your sales ten folds...people like to see who they are buying from!

    (That could be your selling point...)

    I Noticed on your blog, you mention you have 6 ebooks
    you have written/created sitting on your computer that
    you have not done anything with.

    If the topics are related to IM or making money online
    or offline why not sell them here by doing a WSO
    once you have over 30 posts.

    I agree with Marc. Before I read his post, I was thinking how can you sell an ebook on 'how to make money online' when it's clear that you haven't achieved that yourself yet. This is the reason why there is so much bad advice out there. It's ALL speculation and chinese whispers. You need to succeed first and THEN sell your ebook of how you done and how they can do the same.

    I'm not knocking you. It is possible to make some money quickly in so many different ways. Granted, you haven't given yourself much time. You can do one of two things, for immediate money you can offer your services at a fairly low fee with you being unestablished. It won't be mega bucks but you'll have income to show for it. Or you can look at setting up an automated money site, get all the aspects as spot on as you can, submit a few 'good' articles to drive traffic to it and obtain some backlinks to get some kind of ranking in the serps. This though will take some time and won't yield results straight away.

    It really depends on which route you want to take for now.

    Alternatively you can setup an opt-in page and say give your blog traffic ebook away in exchange for signing up to your newsletter. Add the url to your forum Personal Blackberry, get some backlinks, bookmark, and submit articles to obtain traffic. Let this automatically build your list up over time. Then just make the time to send them some valuable content once a week or fortnight to build rappor. This will set you up with a potential customer base when you are able to hit them with a proper product launch down the line.

    Unfortunately though, four days won't give you much time to achieve anything.

    it's possible to launch something in that time, provided you've spent 6 months learning the best ways.

    For you, this will be unrealistic so dont set yourself up for failure. Retract your deadline of 4 days and focus on getting a product ready in 4 weeks from now. In the meantime, start creating a list by using PLR content as a giveaway then market to the list once your real product is ready.

    ps. dont try your first time in IM, you're going against the big boys. Pick something like cross stitching (hint hint) as there is loads of traffic, not a huge amount of adwords competition, plus it's non-tech so you wont have any info marketers already in this area.

    Can I steal your headline. It is so much better than mine :p

    Mohammed, you ask what topic you should launch and what the product should be. Ask yourself what you know most about. It could be anything from gaming to getting straight A's at school. That will be the easiest topic to write on quickly. Then consider creating a short report on it and promoting through forums, bum marketing, article writing and everything else you can think of.

    How much does your mother expect you to earn to be considered successful at what you do? Maybe explain to her that there is often a lead-in time to making money online and many people take far longer than a year to finally start making it.

    ps. dont listen to your mum, as it's doubtful she is advising you based upon knowledge of Internet marketing and online business. That's her opinion, but you're already half way to being an entrepreneur based upon the fact that you're trying things out in IM and wanting to learn the correct methods.

    Like the guy in the crowd says from the Adam Sandler films....

    YOU CAN DOOOOO IT!

    very funny.
    4 days.

    the wso idea might fly.
    but i would write up or fix those books that you have and give them away to build a list.
    use video to do your traffic sourcing and leave it to work for you.
    in 4 days you could get at least 20 short videos up onto the big video sites.
    you will then start to get traffic to your free book and list all the time.

    good luck either way.
    maybe you should PM all of us who replied to you with what eventually happened.

    good luck again.

    Ask yourself what you know most about
    OK guys, I have been reading the replies and I what I got lots of time was that you should write what you know about. Know here's the thing: Internet Marketing is what I know about. I have been buying courses like Butterfly Marketing and Launch Tree and I have been studying them and I think that I have the knowledge.

    I don't know how I will succeed myself if I will not launch anything myself and IM is my niche and that's what I wanna enter. To say the truth I don't like writing and the only topic that I like writing on is Internet Marketing. I don't know why but I think this is what I should do.

    I was thinking how can you sell an ebook on 'how to make money online' when it's clear that you haven't achieved that yourself yet
    As I said haven't launched a thing until today and I think this will be necessary for an experience.

    For you, this will be unrealistic so dont set yourself up for failure. Retract your deadline of 4 days and focus on getting a product ready in 4 weeks from now. In the meantime, start creating a list by using PLR content as a giveaway then market to the list once your real product is ready.
    My mother is not hungry for my money and she wants me to stop doing "irrelevant stuff" for my big year so I will be able to extend this deadline but I was just thinking that it would be a good experiment to do but OK i will go for one week or two weeks and then I can do a case study on it.

    Ha... launch a product in 4 days... Dude, I've been working on mine for the last 6 months. If you want something that will actually sell then you have to put in the time and effort. You can't just go at it half-cocked and expect results...

    Why don't you try making affiliate marketing work for you first... build a list from it and then ask them what they want... then build that and launch it.

    It seems, you were buying the wrong kinds of courses... you don't having anything you can use the knowledge you got from those course yet...

    OK Guys, I just decided that I am taking down my plan of launching a product in 4 days. I will create a product in 4 days and then I will give it away for free to build a list.

    I will launch a product in about 1 and a half month.
