I have created an amazing opportunity, how do I get people to a webinar?

13 replies
I think I have created a Business Opportunity that will change a form of marketing. I think it will be a big hit with reselllers and end users.

The problem is I don't actually own the software, I have just developed a new and different way to use it. I really believe this is a product that every business will want.

I would really like to hold a couple of webinars to promote it. I don't have a "list" to promote the opportunity webinar to. Since I don't own the software I can't offer an affiliate program to have others with big lists to promote webinar. Let's say the software is clickfunnels. I would make my money from having people sign up to clickfunnels through my affiliate link. Since cf would get half the money and I get the other half there wouldn't be anything left for the list owner. Do you think any big names would promote it for a flat fee?

I guess I could run ads for the webinar, but can I run enough ads to fill a webinar in just a few days?

Anyone have any ideas?

    Depending on your time frame and how good your copy is, it is possible to run ads to drive webinar attendees. The real question is how many will show up and how good your follow up email campaigns are. Fortune is in the follow up.

    Also, your targeting for those ads has to be spot on. One helpful hint for FB Ads...If you are targeting one niche (Social Media for example) add in interests that have Social Media included. Try to not mix niches, because facebook has a boolean OR search for interests, so if you start adding in Social Media Targeting and then throw in Automobiles for example. You can have people who are interested in Social Media OR Automobiles.

    Go skinny on your targeting terms in regards to interest for a better response.

    Is this time sensitive?


    Why not just setup a webinar and then run the replay with people allowed to select the time they can attend...


    Then if and when they watch follow up with you offer...

    There are tens of ideas online for attracting more people to your webinars. maybe you're already using webinars to grow your mailing list, build authority, and connect with your audience. Or perhaps you're just starting to consider adding them to your marketing mix.

    Good Luck!

    So don't monetize the webinar.

    Use other peoples list to build your own list in exchange you send the traffic to the affiliate link via your webinar info. for the person supplying the list.

    Repeat... Repeat... Repeat...

    ...and you eventually build up a large list of your own from consolidating multiple list that other people own.

    You've now turned the table and become the Big Player. Turn around and sell traffic to other people, sell affiliate products, sell your own products, whatever... Once you control the traffic you have dozens of new options.

    Look at the BIG picture.

    You have several viable options: (1) license the use of the software from the owner for your specific application, (2) do a joint venture or partnership with the software owner for a share of the profit, (3) pay a developer to make a similar software product for you.

    Never, in the history of business, has there been a product that every business wants. Come back down to reality.

    Are you sure you're ready to promote something you don't have yet? There are a number of issues regarding your product that are still unanswered and even thinking about promotion at this point would be foolish. First things first.

    Yes, certainly, if you pay them enough they will promote anything for you. But as mentioned already, you don't have a product to promote just yet. And trusted marketers aren't going to blindly promote a "pig in a poke." They aren't going to risk their reputations on something until they are sure it's valuable to their audience.

    Yes you can if you have very compelling copy, an idea that clicks with targeted prospects, and a sizable ad budget. Do you have all of these ready to go?

    Yes, why don't you start small and test the waters for your idea with a focused mini pre-launch? It will give you a chance to gauge customer demand and get some feedback so you can tweak your product, make sure it delivers on your promises, and it will give you time to work out any bugs or deficiencies. It will also allow you to get some testimonials from happy users. It's the smart way to validate your idea and prepare your product for the actual marketing launch.


    Good luck,

    Steve

    What's your social media presence? Have you built a following? Are you part of any groups? Do you have a long and growing email list?

    These are the things I would have in place before embarking on offering webinars.

    I would like to thank everyone for their input. I definitely have to think about the best way to launch. A couple of my business friends say I should take it right to Shark Tank. They joke that Mark and Robert will get into a bidding war over it.

    It is a little time sensitive, but not because of an event. I just want to be first to market. Once the "twist" is revealed I imagine other marketers will start their own program.

    I am in talks with the developer on a way to license it.

    Look for WF Banners promoting the webinar soon.

    Thanks again,

    Such cases are better dealt if you deal with the press. Make some bloggers write about it, some reputed websites review about it. You need some promotion. If it is a game-changing deal, publishers would definitely want to write about.

    If you asked me to promote it , the first thing I am looking for is the results from your test and what does your funnel look like .
    You need to build a funnel and run lots of tests first before I would even consider it.
    But you couldn't even do that because u do not own the product.

    So see of you could cut a deal with the product owner first on a white label for you.
    I would start there .
    Get ownership first, build a funnel then test, test and tweak it until you get it to convert.
    You are going to need copies of it to give away to entice people with and to get reviews for your copy.
    That's where I would start.
    Best of luck.

    Build your friend network by promoting and assisting folks in your niche. Ask for nothing in return. Over weeks and months, they promote you and your webinar to their audiences, boosting your sign ups. Networking and service are 2 fundamentals to lasting success, wealth and growth.

  • I think you use clickfunnels and their service in paid terms. You simply use their service to build website according to their preset style & design and sell products. As you want to sign up people via your affiliate link, i think; i do not know how many people gonna attend;webinar is not best idea to me.

    If you can make some youtube videos and promote your products and sell them among people, if you can convince them - can certainly give you lead in your business. It is the same strategy people use to sell amazon products.

    Otherwise you can find lot of warrior member who can help you to promote your affiliate link in their websites.

    Thanks
