Product Creation vs. Marketing - What Time?!

3 replies
This is my first post here (no idea if its in the right spot?) I would not call myself an internet marketer. I would like to though.

The most I have ever made online is a check from clickbank for $472 - unfortunately it didnt last due to my lack of funds for PPC. The reason I got into affiliate marketing was because I wanted to learn how to advertise properly - I have products that I am creating in the fitness niche and the music industry niche. I do both very well.

I cannot, however, find the time to market these ideas! I have tried endlessly and it is all a loss to me. All of my products and ideas have either been started or are complete - but I tend to work on them one day, then end up trying to build a 'hype-list' and market my brand the next day because I think...

"How am I going to sell them if I have nobody to market them to?!"

I would like to know from anybody, but those who both create and market products especially, how do you fix your workflow? Do you do both and just take a long time doing it or do you JV with somebody who markets for you? Because I have thought of doing this too, but alas, I dont know enough marketing connections yet.

It is such a depressing feeling, working hard and then the next day feeling like you have nothing to show for it. Is it greed or desperation that makes us feel like that?!

    You need to focus on one thing at a time. Marketing is the absolute most important step.

    Focus on developing an irresistible offer FIRST so it can help you shape your copy and overall funnel story and flow.

    When you have the right message to the right market then proceed to the next step, a marketing funnel THEN worry about product creation.

    This is a proven process I've been modeling for years.

    It sounds like you could use some one on one help. Skype me or email me using your WF username and I will give you a free half hour coaching session.
    I don't do this for people I don't know too often, but I have a feeling I can help you get on track.

    Spend the time to create a great product,
    then spend the REST of the time to promote
    it. So, 90% of your time after product
    creation should spent on marketing.
