I am a psychiatrist that has written an ebook that I have gotten excellent feedback on. The ebook helps spouses of alcoholics. I am committed to helping family members of alcoholics. I have been trying to market my ebook on the internet without much success. I am getting active on twitter and some forums in my niche on facebook). I have an active blog and have written about 7 or so articles. I am used to such success as as doctor with helping patients, I realize I am on new ground (success is more elusive). What can I do differently to turn the tide?
I just found out I am too new to post links-( but if you are interested to check here are the addresses)
helpalcoholicfamily.com/blog blog page
helpalcoholicfamily.com landing page
helpalcoholicfamily.com/spouse-ebook - sales page
alcoholic-spouse.com more of a professional website for the book that I am currently working on.
Even if you don't look at my site- here are my burning questions:
#1 Where do I go from here?
Writing my blog and my ezine articles takes a lot of time. Although I am slowly getting more traffic to my website (blog gets on average 40-100 visitors a day according to google analytics- it doesn't seem worth the time on top of my practice (work and parenting) schedule. Conversions are low.
Do I hire a copywriter to help breathe life into my internet business?
#3 What can I do to make it go "viral"?
#4 Is there a method/course worth purchasing out there?
For example, I have already spent too much money and time on courses and email coaching which haven't turned things around. My email inbox is flooded with the latest internet marketing products promising "THIS IS THE ANSWER!" I got an ad for George Brown's traffic ultimatum or Rapid Mass Traffic this week. Each one sounds like a "must have". Are they?
I have been at this for about 9 months and am ready to do something different. I have put my heart and soul into this. I am very open to suggestions and appreciate any helpful input. I need some good honest advice from someone who isn't selling me anything. It would be extra awesome if someone out there might understand my niche- they do not necessarily respond to the same tactics as someone who is marketing a product on making money on the internet. They are very sensitive and in pain and not easily trusting.
