I have made a 5 day target for myself

I have made a 5 day target for myself where I am promoting a high ticket product. My target is to sell 20 of them minimum. My video, blogpost, landing page, autoresponder and instagram promotion for the same are ready. I am looking for some good paid traffic sources. Can you give me a list where you have personal good experience? I know that I can google it to find or search other posts to find the paid traffic sources but I am looking for the ones where you have personally used a paid traffic source successfully?

    I've tried various traffic sources over the years... and the best ROI for me has been with Facebook Ads. The one thing to keep in mind about FB Ads is that people typically don't buy right up front. You have to take them through a funnel and build rapport by continuing to deliver quality content before you hit them with the big ticket offer.

    If you have experience running FB ads try that route first. I'd use the video to get views to see if my target audience is engaging with the content. Once you have enough data... see if there's enough interest to run more ads to capture leads. Video views is by far the most cost efficient way to test.

    Good Luck!

      Thanks a lot. Your "3 Tiers To Dominate FB Marketing" is quite useful. I am going to try my first FB Ad as you have explained in the training.

    Facebook ads are working for me. But just start off slow with a few ads with a low daily budget, then you can scale up your winning campaigns and cut the losers.

      It is about affiliate marketing and the target audience are the people who are serious about internet marketing. (Not the people who keep looking for free opportunities to make a few extra dollars)

    Five days have come and gone, have you gone too? Did you sell 20 of whatever? Will we ever hear from you again?

    How did your video, blogpost, landing page, autoresponder and instagram promotion do?

    Did the paid traffic convert?

          OK Guys I am back
          1) I did one facebook ad which had a compelling video and it increased my list by 150. I spent $20.
          2) I decided to go for solo ad and selected one experienced seller from Warrior forum. He liked my landing page and he wrote the email as per my product in online business niche. I spent $135 for 300 unique clicks. My list grew by another 175 contacts.
          3) My list was about 1550 and now it is 1875
          4) My auto responder is still sending emails.
          5) I have ZERO sales as for now.
          6) The product that I was promoting was from clickbank with gravity 61 and its price is about $990 (I get $450 commission on sale)

          7) Clickbank reporting showed 500 hops, 250 hops per order form impression and 2 order form impression count.
          8) My question is now, from here to where?
          9) What do you say to the stats that I have given you about my campaigns?

            You originally wanted 20 sales (MINIMUM). You spent 155 dollars. And took 15 days, not five. I'd say your stats are telling you to try another way. The 300 unique clicks, they were targeted to people with an interest in the prodeuct? Or random souls?

            You have a list of 1875, still getting emails, have you asked them about the offer?

            What was the basis for your original enthusiasm thinking you would sell 20 minimum?

            You need to thoroughly analyze what your technique is, because it isn't working, is it?

            Wrong traffic? Wrong offer? Price?

              Yes Gordon, I agree. But I am trying to find out where things are not working out. The Solo ad seller is an ethical guy from warrior forum. He is very experienced and specializes in my niche . My product that I am promoting has gravity of 61 in clickbank, that means are affiliates are earning money by selling that product. Is it just my bad luck or what I am unable to analyze !!! Or I have to give it a longer shot? (more solo ads than 300??)

                Well, why not ask your list? Of th now 1800, send out an email to your first 100, those who have been getting your autoresponder, and ask them why they aren't buying. You can do a survey or offer a little gift or bonus for responder.

                All sellers, even ethical guys from the WF, will defend their services, so he won't be of any help, and will probably question, your landing page, the product, the price.

                Don't have anything else for you, but I know if I had 1800 on a list and a whole bunch of non buyers, I'd go to the well (albeit dry for you) that should be giving me water.

    Guess it depends what market your product is in. I have found Udimi pretty good for reliable solo traffic if you go for a recommended seller and quality traffic. You get the click-throughs you are guaranteed but getting the sales will always depend on matching your offer to the type of audience. But they can be warm buyers who seem to buy. Best wishes.

    I bet that SEO is the best source of targeted traffic. No other method will beat SEO.

    So, my suggestion is invest in content and do proper SEO of your website.

    Also, don't ignore YouTube.

      Yaa, YouTube works for me. (but it is building only my list with a few occasional sales here and there)
      SEO of my site is OK but not great.
      But here I was promoting my landing page not my website and as per the solo seller, my landing page is perfect..

    Salsym, a couple of observations...

    First, a high ClickBank gravity doesn't tell you how well the product is converting - it's an indication of the number of affiliates selling it. The actual conversion percentage could be below average. It also suggests there's a lot of competition.

    Second, a $990 digital product is a tough sell to a subscriber list that doesn't know you or hasn't bought from you before, no matter how well-targeted that solo list was. You'd probably be better off priming your prospects with entry-level products or at least a few credibility-building reports before asking them to shell out nearly a grand. Let them get to know and trust you. You're hampering your chances by imposing this entirely artificial and arbitrary time target on yourself.

      Thanks. Your observation makes sense. I selected this high ticket product because actual conversion was taking in a webinar where I thought it will be easier for me. My job was just to send people to webinar. Anyway it didn't work. I selected gravity between 50 and 100 because above 100 it becomes too competitive and below 50, obviously product is not doing well. But I learnt one thing as you rightly said, gravity doesn't mean people are converting but the number of people that are selling. I thought gravity is defined by how many people are able to sell the product...

        Between, not all solo ad sellers are good. A quality of list they have built definitely makes a difference on sales you are going to get. I have had solos mailed but only for low ticket offer and i never made profit. Some solo mailing didn't make a sale for 1000 clicks even it was a low ticket offer.

  • So you're trying to sell Super Affiliate System WITHOUT having a relationship with your list? That's not going to happen man, it's a solid course, but you're not just going to get solo add traffic that buys this product from you after seeing your name for the first time.


    You need to build a relationship with your list first, build a buyers list, build a fan base - sounds like you're just trying to go from Step 1 to Step 10 Right away, while skipping all the steps in between.


    I'll tell you now, as you're seeing, this won't work

    Hi Salsym,

    5 days seems short. Why? Is fear driving you? Or abundance? Get to the root of 5 days; could be impatience, which hurts your ability to generate sales.

    How about 5 weeks? Or....gasp....5 months?

    Patience and generosity and persistence wins in the sales game.

      Thanks mate. I agree. I just made a 5 day target to bring myself to track. Else, what was happening was, I will get a blog post idea, will sit on that for 2 weeks and by the time I write half of the content that I had thought will disappear from the mind. So, I thought of this 5 day target. I need to change it at least 5 months...
