My eyes lit up this morning :)

53 replies
So yesterday I was looking for a decent freebie to send out to my list. I came across this product on Clickbank where the author offers a preview sample of their ebook, which was perfect. 10 pages of free quality information, with the added bonus that they might go on and buy the book (I added my CB link at the end)

Well I logged into today and had the biggest grin on my face




The main purpose of the email was to send my subscribers a quality freebie, and I wasn't really expecting any sales. Well it turns out that people love to get a taste of what they're getting before they buy. (Obvious really )

Just sharing my success, which I pretty much owe to this forum.

    Well done, nice to see the odd surprise in IM. They don't come often enough.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[5644348].message }}
  • Wow nice result. Those are the best kind of affiliate offers because you genuinely are offering them something free, and if they feel that the quality is good enough they will then go on and buy it themelves.

    The key is useful but incomplete info, and just
    enough to give them a taste.

      Wicked! Thanks for sharing!

      It's nice to see a positive post about something good happening, especially when you're having a frustrating time of things. (Which I think many of us have occasionally no matter how good our businesses are going.)

      I wish we saw more uplifting posts like this.

    Awesome stuff!

    I keep contacting merchants on Clickbank about the same thing - a free report to pre-sell the main product by providing useful but incomplete information.

    Unfortunately most of them don't even respond to my email - they just want things to run on autopilot instead of working with affiliates to optimize their campaigns.

    It sure makes sense to me... when I find a site I like, I'm always happy to find some sample information or a free report. Being a pretty skeptical buyer, :-) it definitely makes it an easier buying decision for me if I get a free taste of what I'm thinking about buying.
    Good job, OP.

    Ooooooh I love that feeling!

    Very nice work; you should remember what you felt like seeing that number and use that as motivation to work harder! Next time you feel yourself being lazy or wanting to be lazy, just think about the emotional rush of that number and what it felt like seeing it...Insta-motivation!

      Haha, yeah, I find genuine clickbank screenshots really rare these days. Seems that even clickbank has fake earning reports as ads on there.

      Btw, Congratulations OP.

    Congratulations, job well done.

    I am also curious as others are - if you don't mind, is this inside or outside IM niche, what size list, and what price point on the product?

    Thanks. Great job!

        Tell me about it dude, I rarely get a response either. Which completely amazes me to be honest, if I was a Vendor then affiliates would be at the top of my list of prioritys for sure.

        This Vendor was cool though, I requested the preview page and he sent it to me within a few hours.

        The size of this particular list of mine is 1,100. However I only sent this broadcast to around 700 of my subscribers because quite a few are still going through my follow up messages.

        Thank you.

        I don't sell anything in the IM, just a personal preferance of mine. I mainly only sell relationship/dating products. It's a desperate niche and it tends to convert well. From personal experience I have found that women convert far better than what men do.

        Any tips on how you built your list?
        At the beginning I built my list solely through SEO. However, around December last year I decided to diversify my traffic sources because relying on Google is a dangerous thing to do.

        At the moment I would say around 60% of my traffic is from Google. 30% from Blog Commenting, and 10% from Articles scattered round the web. Most of my efforts have been on Article Syndication this year, but I just cannot seem to get any worthwhile traffic. I'm not giving up though because I know how effective this method is just from other members on this forum.

        It was a PDF which I uploaded onto my website. It was around 8 pages of quality content, and the last 2 pages were explaining what they would recieve if they bought the product.

        I have definately thought about this, and yes I think I would faint lol. I'm definately starting to realise the true potential of Internet Marketing, and I'm starting to dream bigger.
