So I'm a noob, and I just put up a thread about my first bit of success which surprised me by getting a lot of views and a lot of replies.
Okay so I'm putting together my second website, and this one is not designed to last long term. It is a review site for a product launch in October.
I want to give a bonus to people who purchase from my link to encourage them to buy from me.
Pretty standard so far, right?
Now, I'll only give away a bonus that I've created myself. Why? Because if the product is good, it makes me look awesome and builds my name as a brand.
Here's where it gets original...
What if I gave away my bonus to EVERYONE who buys the product, not just to people who buy the product from me?
Try to follow me here. If I publish on my site that anyone who buys product xxxx gets a bonus, it adds some credibility to the product because it must be good and I must really support it if I'm giving folks a bonus for buying it, even I didn't profit from their purchase.
The actual plan
So I tell people that once they've purchased product xxxx
- they'll have to opt-in to my bonus list.
- Once they've confirmed their subscription, they'll receive an email address to which they'll send their receipt.
- Most importantly I'll let everyone know that unless they actually send their receipt, they'll never be bothered by a single email from me, and they also won't receive the bonus.
So what do you think? Please don't pull any punches.
