The book is done, the sales page is done, the affiliate page is done, the newsletter content for the next 50 days is done, so now all I'm missing is getting some decent testimonials.
How would you go about getting these?
I would gladly give a few free copies to people, but I'm not sure how to go about contacting them. Obviously I can't just go on a dating website and email the guys on there directly. That'd be a big no-no as it would be seen as spam.
I emailed moderators of a few dating forums asking if I could create a post offering some review copies to their members for free, but that too was seen as spam and I was shot down.
The only other thing I can think of is to actually sell a few copies and then ask my customers for their opinion.
I have two issues with that though:
1) I wanted to get a few testimonials FIRST, before I launch. (Granted, testimonials aren't they only deciding factor that people will buy, but still.)
2) I wanted to do a "big" launch. Complete with prelaunch buzz, a 48 hour price discount, a few JV partners etc. I know I could do some sort of "soft" launch beforehand and only advertise the site using Google AdWords to limit the exposure, but I'd really prefer to get the testimonials BEFORE going live.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
