$7k in 4 days.. thank god for internet marketing

44 replies
Hello guys from WarriorForum,

Some time ago one of my friends in Brazil called me, wanted some advice in how to build a product for his blog.

His blog is the most visited dating blog in Brazil. 60k unique visits/month.

I saw a huge opportunity in it. The good things about this market is the desperation. Hundreds of guys wanting to learn how to attract girls, so they can be happy.

The information my friend was selling was top-notch. He even made workshops around Brazil with a company in Brazil. Had some media coverage.

With that I thought we already had the:
- Right content
- Right stories
- Social proof

We built an ebook. I did the launch of the product building a list, creating buzz and creating scarcity mentality (there will only be 400 copies of this ebook released).

People gone crazy.

In the first day.. 120 sales x $49.

And the following days were kind of the same.. (but it weakened with time..).

The total sales until now is 300 copies ($14700). 50% of that is mine.

I'm really happy.

Now I'm thinking of other ways to make even more money. And now I have the cash to invest.

Every day I go to sleep and when I woke up I had at least 10 order e-mails.. hehe.. (moneeey)
It's the most happy time of my day.. actually.

    That's awesome. That's spotting an opportunity and then seizing it. Your friend must be buzzed to have seriously monetized his highly popular blog.

    What an achievement, congrats to you both and keep us posted on your progress.

    Thanks for the post buddy! Fantastic, not even crossed that line on a single product launch but is definitely inspiring.

    Just a tip:

    Since you know your have hungry audience, why not build on it some more. Create a community where you send in a quality tip or 2 per week and presell more ebooks.

    you know its working, make it more some more!

    Good luck in your future endeavors mate.

      The funny thing:

      The sales letter wasn't that good.. hehe.. now I'm putting a better one online.

      But it was a hungry market. And they respected my partner A LOT.
      He already did consulting with about 120 clients. And everybody know..

      So, everyone wanted to have the "special ebook".

      I'm actually thinking of creating a backend product.. maybe an audio program or DVD. We don't know yet.

      For a long time I thought Internet Marketing was bull****. But than the most difficult thing is: TRAFFIC. And we had a lot of traffic.. he just didn't know how to monetize.

      Never thought it would give return so fast. But than I made them desire the product.



      And Adsense is kind of bad.. if you don't have 1 million page views.

    Dude I'm gonna give you some advice that will make you some serious cash.

    Research a guy called "Neil Strauss", he wrote a best selling book about dating called "The Game". His Product Launch Manager was a blonde surfey dude called "Frank Kern" - You may have heard of him.

    Build a list out of those guys in Brazil that surf the forum. Get yourself an opt-in plugin YESTERDAY. Offer a free product to members who opt-in (with advice, tips on dating etc. and build that list like mad.)

    Learn how to pre-sell an email list. Steal the Strauss/Kern Model (invest some of that money in something like Mass Control - The Neil Strauss stuff is in the Swipe File).

    Launch another product to that list and enjoy sipping margaritas with the very woman that everyone on your list are trying to 'pull'.

    Cheers!
    Signature

    Back in the game!

      I've actually used the email templates for Annihilation Method that Frank Kern provided in Mass Control 2.0 . Great product..

      And I know who Neil Strauss (Style) is . I'm from the Brazillian dating community.. we all read The Game .. it is probally why there is a seduction community there.

      We have an Opt-in in the blog (Two actually).

      I just need to develop other products..

      But thanks for your advice and tips.

      Thanks.. that is actually one of the ideas I have. Just have to see how much.

      Sometimes I wonder if people have forgotten how important the list is. You could be making money the rest of your life just off the list alone, promoting other peoples dating advice products and seminars.

    I'm laughing at the tags that WF put on this post "$7k, days, god, internet, marketing" GOD? OK

    Dude you obviously know the score, if it wasn't for Neil Strauss and The Game I would have never have found internet marketing (long story!)

    But you're definatley on the right track by the sounds of it.

    And my gosh, who would not want to pick up Brazilian girls???

    Anyway, you have not exhausted this niche by a long shot. If I was your product launch manager I would say, create the "October Man" method yourself and release it to your list, that alone will make you MASSIVE money.

    You almost have it all already. Just run with it!

    Cheers,

    P.S. I am now engaged so I can't have a slice of this pie without having to wash and dry my own socks! but IM is treating me welll. So bless IM.

    Great thinking there! I think you should not stop with only one e-book, I bet a sequel would earn some extra cash aswell..

    What you could do is offer a discount on both the e-books,... people usually can't resist a bargain..

    I'm happy for you, but don't forget to limit it to 400 as you promised. Remember, if you don't lose the trust, you'll always have more customers to sell. Don't think it as a short term game.

    Congratulations again.

      Big part of it was using Mass Control from Frank Kern. His strategies for building connection with the customers are very solid.

      I saw his letters for Annihilation Method.. and had some good ideas to start from there.

      When it comes to selling stuff.. the best way to do it.. is not to try to sell it at all in the Autoresponder.

      Normally I was saying:

      How awesome the results were. Like my friend was in a party and he was kissing this hot girl (and that's not a lie).. and how that guy in the past was shy and couldn't even talk to girls. And other stuff.

      I try my best not to try too much. And not to sell too much the product. I don't sell the product anymore.. I sell the results.. better.. I sell the emotions behind the product.

      hehe.. but I think that is something I've learned from copywriters.

      P.S: I'm actually thinking of building up a blog where I put some Case Studies. Now I'm entering the USA market too. Let's see what happens. Just waiting to have more money to invest.
